                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
ZORPUNT brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Of course, we're all terribly 
impressed to see Q-TIP win a fight and gain 23 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, Q-TIP 
beat CUTTER CRITES and CUTTER CRITES lost 17 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  And 
it's out with the old, in with the new, as PEARL STONE takes the Title and last 
week's bar tab from the old Duelmaster.  Heh, heh.  Kickbacks and bribes, kickbacks 
and bribes, how else do you think some of these guys win their fights?  Skill?  Ha!   
     My mother always told me, 'If you don't have anything nice to say, start 
talking.' I loved that woman.  What's the big D?  KRILL CAVALRY was the most avoided 
team?  Bunch of lily livered... grumble... mumble... curse...  And who led the way in 
this mass act of cowardice?  Let's see, well, whatcha know?  It was BORN LOSERS.  Ha 
ha ha ha!  Ooh, I'm frightfully impressed, WARM BATH was this turn's most challenged 
warrior.  Watch that ego swell, sports fans.   
     Death and Taxes.  The less death I see, the more it taxes my patience.  Let's 
see if anyone's dead or dying.  GENTLE THINGS has cause to pause today, as INFANT was 
sent to the Dark Arena, and came back--though not in the best of moods, I'll wager.  
We're all going to die in the end, so why worry if the fate catches up with you 
sooner that later?   
     There's got to be a better place in ZORPUNT to get a drink than The Welcome 
Wench!  Any suggestions?  Phlllt!  Just had to do that before I leave the fine city 
of ZORPUNT.  I feel much better now.  I see the crowds are getting restless, I must 
leave now-- Snide Clemens

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!
