                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of JHELUM!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp Eyes, 
Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  HEISENBERG caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested DAZZLING DENNY and was awarded 13 
points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, HEISENBERG put down 
DAZZLING DENNY, causing him to lose 9 points of recognition in the process.  Due to 
his absence and inability to defend the throne, MAJESTIC MATT has lost the title of 
Duelmaster.  This time victory fell to the grasp of the usurper.  All hail PIMP 
POTENTIAL, Duelmaster of JHELUM!  Would you believe that over half of the old women 
in JHELUM 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 JHELUM.   
     Vendettas.  Bloodied blades and broken spears.  Indeed the city has seen more 
than its fair share of red in recent times.  Dark alleys may hide both secrets and 
assassins.  In the arena there is only the brightness of steel.  Keep vigil always!   
     A thought before I go.  Each warrior practices one style, but must not the wise 
manager learn the secrets of them all?  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.-- 
Zontani Sharp Eyes

To:         All Managers

In the interest of preserving our natural resources and preventing managerial writer's 
cramp, the census form has been eliminated, effective immediately.  Managers may 
register their warriors' races and/or favorite sayings by simply writing them on a 
separate piece of paper and submitting them to the Commission.  Each warrior may have 
up to 15 favorite sayings.  Each saying must be categorized Jeer, Gloat, Boredom, Ouch, 
Victory and may be up to 70 characters long.  For any questions, please contact the 
Gladiatorial Commission. 

             ATTENTION:  ALL MANAGERS WHO ARE ATTENDING THE FACE-TO-FACE

If you plan to attend the Winter Face-to-Face in Phoenix, please let Customer Service 
know.  We will hold your turns for the few days preceding the tourney, starting with 
anything that would mail out on the previous Saturday.  (This means that games due on 
Thursday the 9th (which would mail on Friday) would probably mail to you, but games 
due on the 10th and thereafter will be held and delivered to you at the tournament.  
This way, you won't have to worry about not receiving a critical turn before you 
depart for Newark, and you also don't have to worry about whether you can get a 
reprint before the first turn of the tournament is due.  

See you there!
