                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, OSKSI?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  If this keeps up, GENERATION X, you'll 
have to shine swords instead of use them.  A drop of 4 in the rankings?  BOMBAY 
BUMBLE BEES turned their 2-1-1 turn into a 5th place rank in the listings this turn.  
Any better than this, and you get put on hit lists.  Gee, I'm impressed, a 3-0-1 is 
nice, but don't get cocky, OUR HIGHEST HONOR, the Fates teach humility, and the Fates 
are proud.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed to see ORGAN GRINDER win a fight 
and gain 14 points, terribly.  The Duelmaster's Dead!  Long live the Duelmaster!  Ha! 
DAVID CONE has killed DAGUR in the Title bout, and this bout ain't over yet!  I'm not 
in a very good mood today, but why am I telling you this?  You want to know what's 
new, don't you, OSKSI?   
     He who fights and runs away will live to fight another day, the coward.  FRAT 
PARTY BLOWOUT, I suppose you'll be glad to know you were this turn's most avoided 
team.  Care to know who is the most afraid of you?  And who led the way in this mass 
act of cowardice?  Let's see, well, whatcha know?  It was BOMBAY BUMBLE BEES.  Ha ha 
ha ha!  Ooh, I'm frightfully impressed, KANDARESRON VARN was this turn's most 
challenged warrior.  Watch that ego swell, sports fans.  Looks like time for laurels 
or hemlock, KANDARESRON VARN was challenged by WHISPER, who was ranked 30 points 
below him.  Not that I'm surprised or anything, but WHISPER was overcame by 
KANDARESRON VARN, leaving the latter lower for recognition points.  MARISONDRA KENDRA 
was challenged by one of FRAT PARTY BLOWOUT's warriors this turn, with DUDE #1 having 
a lead of 26 points going into the fight.  And golly gee, DUDE #1 won victory over 
MARISONDRA KENDRA.  Aren't we all surprised and impressed?  Now look at this.  CANOE 
RACE challenged down 18 against GAMES LIBRARY's KIERNAN VARO.  What a weasel!  And 
sorry to say, CANOE RACE overcame KIERNAN VARO, leaving a bad feeling with the crowd. 
I think exploitive snob is the term I'm looking for.  I guess I can give a little 
credit to SMOKE of THE BLACK COMPANY for challenging up by 20 to BEES KNEES.  SMOKE 
lost to get 76 points of recognition.   
     Ah, now we come to my favorite part, where we see all the guys who are dead and 
gone, and get to see if their team cared.  Honor is like a chainmail shirt, it only 
shines through use.  Certain nameless cowards will doubtless rebuke me on this one.   
     What does the OSKSI arena have in common with the inns?  It's just as 
comfortable to sleep in either place.  Ha ha ha ha!  Well, I've had enough of this 
drivel, and I'm sure you have too.  Off like a dirty shirt of padded leather.  I see 
the crowds are getting restless, I must leave now-- Snide Clemens

Dagur -- Well done, I guess.  I can only hope you get yours, because my drop out of
the Challenger Champs by a single point was pretty annoying. -- Arugula

Two-three!  A great improvement, AND I defeated Smoke and thus achieved a proper
revenge for Merisandara.  Or at least an adequate one.  Excellent! -- Kandaresron
Varn

And I won, too, of course, which is as it should be.  But WHAT are we going to do
with a teammate named... "Hop Scotch"?  That's just silly. -- Marisondra Kendra
