                                      SPY REPORT

     The sages err'd not in their foretelling of a god descending upon OSKSI, for I, 
Novgorodny Vir, have returned!  Those betting on LEGIONS' OF HELL lost their shirt, 
as LEGIONS' OF HELL lost their fighting abilities:  0-2-0.  What's a move up by 8 you 
ask?  (alright, maybe you didn't ask)  Cause for celebration, according to DARK 
BLADES.  Good things come to those who fight well, as GAMES LIBRARY can attest, 
moving up by 7.  Practice pays for RAPPER'S DELIGHT, who pummelled KIERNAN VARO, to 
pocket 21 points.  KIERNAN VARO certainly had a baffled expression on his face, after 
losing to RAPPER'S DELIGHT and losing 16 points in the process!  What can be a 
greater victory?  BRONO has taken his place as the top, as OSKSI's new Duelmaster.  
Word has it one team in OSKSI is using psychics to predict wins.  They lead a charmed 
life!   
     A Zenmaster once told me, 'Does not the spinning wheel turn?  And do not the 
little birds cry out?'  Any ideas?  Like the noble eagle soaring amongst the 
mountaintops, so stand the warriors of BOMBAY BUMBLE BEES, alone and unchallenged.  
As a woman of good breeding scorns the "warriors" of AESIR, so did that sorry team 
shy from BOMBAY BUMBLE BEES If challenges were horses, BRUNHILDE could open up a fast 
food joint!   
     Is there life after death?  Pragmatics (and warriors) know there is death after 
life!  Citizens of OSKSI, be sure to settle your debts with VITHAR of AESIR.  He's 
relocating to the Dark Arena and has other things on his mind!  The manager at AESIR 
must have some new strategy for sending VITHAR, a warrior with 19-11-0, to the Dark 
Arena.  Watch this space!  Charity is unknown in OSKSI, and rightly so.  BOMBAY 
BUMBLE BEES exacted their revenge against AESIR.  Questions are being raised about 
the disposing of severed body parts in the arena.  A certain tavern in OSKSI would I 
avoid!   
     All good things must come to an end.  Keep those sands bloody and the buzzards 
fat!  Do not despair!  I shall return!-- Novgorodny Vir

Jorja -- I've heard of optimism, but that might be carrying it a bit too far.  "At
least it was only ONE death." -- Assur

Aha, I think I've discovered the ticket!  The old NPC win to stay above .500! --
Arugula

Talk about "red sands," Osksi is looking very dangerous lately.  We salute the fallen
and hope to see fewer for a while. -- Games Library

Our congratulations to Vithar. -- Jorja and the Games Librarians

Smoke -- I hate breathing that stuff. -- Kandaresron Varn

Raven -- I didn't have any trouble believing that. -- Merisandara Tiron

David Cone -- I'm allergic to bee stings.  So I had to quit the fight early, just in
case. -- Melondarion Noris

Manray -- I never know what to think of a name like that.  What does it MEAN? --
Marisondra Kendra

Ah!  A good beginning for me.  I hope it's a sign of things to come. -- Kiernan Varo
