                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly OSKSI games.  Former top team AESIR was unseated this 
week as FRAT PARTY BLOWOUT moved up from 3rd ranking to take the top spot with a 
3-1-0 record for the round.  Warriors--remember that glory waits always around the 
corner!  Witness how this week THE BLACK COMPANY went 3-2-0 to move up 5 in the 
rankings.  My praise to FRAT PARTY BLOWOUT for their 3-1-0 week this time out.  
Indeed, it was a skillfully fought round deserving of notice!  GRUNT 10 caught the 
eye of many in the gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested KANDARESRON VARN 
and was awarded 24 points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, 
VOLSTAGG put down DUDE #4, causing him to lose 14 points of recognition in the 
process.  Although VITHAR made a valiant effort, it did not suffice to topple the 
reign of victorious MIKE COLALILLO.  Would you believe that over half of the old 
women in OSKSI seem to feel that they could fight better than you gladiators?   
     But come now, let us look deeper into the maze of contention and crossed blades 
that is city OSKSI.  OSKSI, city of gladiators!  Mighty among the names of thy guilds 
is THE BLACK COMPANY, a guild shunned and avoided by many in the weekly duels.  
Apparently the stalwarts of AESIR are catching the bulk of jests down at the 
challenging board for their large share of the avoids.  Loose talk at the arena has 
reached my ears and it but confirms the knowledge that many fighters are after WHIFF. 
Watch your back!   
     What warrior does not hone his years, impatiently waiting for the moment of his 
foe's mortality?  Dark alleys may hide both secrets and assassins.  In the arena 
there is only the brightness of steel.  Keep vigil always!   
     The girls are as pretty in OSKSI as ever I remembered them....and the fighters 
as ugly!  Don't let your reputation slip!  Ahh, but I can hear the spires of a far 
off city calling to me.  I must away!  Till we meet again, remember:  a turtle walks 
slow, hides head in a shell, and harms no one; a lion runs to slay its prey.--
