                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly KALTOS games.  Fortune did not smile upon PARTY 
ANIMALS this time out who this turn suffered a fall into 9th position in the wake of 
a 0-0-0 round.  Warriors--remember that glory waits always around the corner!  
Witness how this week SHADY LADIES went 1-1-0 to move up 3 in the rankings.  Did only 
my eyes note the 3-0-0 record which IT'S ALL OVER NOW managed to post this round?  I 
don't doubt that such a record will draw challengers!  Not for nothing has HIGHWAY 
GAMBLER in the past laid claim to the Duelmaster's throne, and this week he's proven 
his combat skill yet again.  No confirmation, but my sources claim that the top team 
has gained their position using magical aids.  Charmed weapons perhaps?   
     But come now, let us look deeper into the maze of contention and crossed blades 
that is city KALTOS.  KALTOS, city of gladiators!  Mighty among the names of thy 
guilds is HISTORICAL KOLACT, a guild shunned and avoided by many in the weekly duels. 
Methinks more than a few here could name the guild it was that spent the better part 
of last week avoiding HISTORICAL KOLACT.  Indeed it was SHADY LADIES.  Mighty 
fighters cannot but expect competition from those below.  SEYMORE GUTTS take warning! 
You have more than a few enemies in KALTOS.  A match that raised a few eyebrows at 
the games this week, it seems that NOSEY ROSIE posted a challenge against the more 
highly recognized SEYMORE GUTTS.  The results, you ask?  Well, the firebrand NOSEY 
ROSIE defeated SEYMORE GUTTS.  Remember warriors, this is the discipline of steel.  I 
can not but mention with disdain the name of BUBBA CHURCH who this week posted a 
challenge to a warrior a full 9 points below in the rankings.  I thought BUBBA CHURCH 
showed great skill and promise when he subdued UGLY WALT.  All right, so I slept 
through it!  Big deal!   
     Is not Death a warrior's foremost adviser?   Warriors, may this counselor stand 
ready at your right hand forever!  Was I the only one shocked to see the well 
respected fighter ANNE GWYNNE (2-0-0) appear on the sands of the Dark Arena?  She is 
now dead.  Some say a warrior is judged by the way he bears arms.  One thing is sure, 
better a dagger in hand then a sword on the belt!   
     The girls are as pretty in KALTOS as ever I remembered them....and the fighters 
as ugly!  Don't let your reputation slip!  More than a sharp eye must I keep, indeed 
a stout pair of legs must I keep as well!  The endless paths of Alastari await me!  
Till next we meet remember - the pen is mightier than the sword, but a maul is a 
different story!-- Zontani Sharp Eyes

Hmm.  I was wondering whether this arena had grown to the point where we could go
inactive, and then I noticed that we didn't fight any standbys, so I guess... the
answer is "no."  You're stuck with us yet, as we are stuck with you.  One-four for
us, no real surprise, and the win was mine. -- Oswald Quorn
P.S.  That's why did I The Personal.  It's supposed to be an honor.

                        WINTER FACE-TO-FACE IN SUNNY ARIZONA!

Our next winter FTF will be held in Tempe, Arizona, January 16-18, 2015.  It will be 
held at the Embassy Suites Hotel in Tempe, Arizona (480-897-7444), the same hotel as 
last year by popular request.  Room rates are $149.00 per night, 1-2 occupancy, which 
includes full cooked breakfast, complimentary manager's reception, free airport 
shuttle, free parking and free high speed internet.  There's a fitness center, 
jacuzzi, and pool.  The rooms are blocked--code RSI.

Please make your reservations now if you plan to go.  This is prime season for 
Phoenix, and this year will be crazy:  the Superbowl, Phoenix Open, auto auction, PF 
Chang's Marathon, and more are all during that time.  The hotel will be filling up 
quickly and I won't be able to add rooms to the block after they are full.  So please 
book your room now -- if you can't make it you can cancel your reservation, but we 
hope you do!

Look for the tournament info sheet and minioverviews some time in December.  We hope 
you're all looking forward to it and that we will see you there!
