                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
OSKSI brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Later days, GAMES LIBRARY, since 
GENERATION X took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  Now keep the 
taverns open late tonight, for there are sorrows to drown for MAJOR BUMMER, whose 
0-0-0 this turn dropped them by 5 into 14th.  Ha!  OUR HIGHEST HONOR turned their 
2-1-1 turn into a 8th place rank in the listings this turn.  Any better than this, 
and you get put on hit lists.  Gee, I'm impressed, a 4-0-0 is nice, but don't get 
cocky, FRAT PARTY BLOWOUT, the Fates teach humility, and the Fates are proud.  Of 
course, we're all terribly impressed to see KANDARESRON VARN win a fight and gain 24 
points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, KANDARESRON VARN beat WHIFF and WHIFF lost 23 points.  
You're breakin' my heart.  Looks like OSKSI has some guts at least, BRONO the 
Duelmaster was this turn's most-challenged warrior.  ARUGULA challenged OSKSI's 
Duelmaster for a shot at the throne.  And if variety is the spice of life, OSKSI may 
be getting bland, as BRONO stays top dog in the city.  The Elefont, humph!  I've 
tasted better ale at mortuaries.  Where do they get this stuff?  From OSKSI's trash 
dumps?   
     My mother always told me, 'If you don't have anything nice to say, start 
talking.' I loved that woman.  OSKSI, I am losing what little hope I had in you.  
AESIR the most avoided team?  What insult will suffice, I cannot say.  And it looks 
like BOMBAY BUMBLE BEES avoided them the most this turn.  What a pack of would be 
losers, if you ask me.  Hmph.  I guess I can give a little credit to RAVEN of THE 
BLACK COMPANY for challenging up by 20 to PETE HARNISCH.  RAVEN lost to get 66 points 
of recognition.   
     Death and Taxes.  The less death I see, the more it taxes my patience.  Let's 
see if anyone's dead or dying.  And what a stunning loss we have here, boys and 
girls, MERISANDARA TIRON of GAMES LIBRARY has added the final loss to hers 15-22-0.  
Tee hee!  Honor is like a chainmail shirt, it only shines through use.  Certain 
nameless cowards will doubtless rebuke me on this one.   
     There's got to be a better place in OSKSI to get a drink than The Elefont!  Any 
suggestions?  Just wait 'till next time I show up here, I won't be so nice!  So 
nyaaah!  Glad to see the back of this place-- Snide Clemens

Turn-around time, this time we went one-four.  Not a stellar day for us, unless you
