                         Treach's Tale, Part 2:  The Story

     Master Fox watched the three guards storm away while arguing with each other
until they were out of sight.  He thought for a mere moment, slugged the last of his
tea, and turned to go inside.
     Just inside the door, still catching his breath, was the bedraggled gladiator,
Treach.  In the still air of the house the Master could smell the faint scent of
perfume mixed with sweat... and shame.  Treach, noticing the sniff, simply shrugged
while trying to hide a roguish, wry grin.  The Master gave a cold hard stare.
     "Master," Treach said while backpedaling both physically and verbally, "She
threw herself at me!  It's your fault, you know.  All that training.  Look at me, I'm
irresistable!"
     "You are dumber than a Zorpuntian guttershipe," Fox said with a cool, even tone.
"Spill it!  What happened and with wom?"
     "Well," the Aruaki said thoughtfully as he sat on a couch, "I was bored so
started hittin' a tree near the market with a short sword and pretendin' it was an
opponent... you know, like a dragon."  Master Fox sunk his head forward and
disappointingly shook it as he continued.  "When all of a sudden, there was clappin'
off to my left.  It was Lady Mahl and she was lookin' at me like... ya' know?"  The
grin on the gladiator's face disappeared as he got a stern look.  "She signaled me
over and took control,."  The grin returned.  "Four times."
     Master Fox finally lost his temper.  "You stupid idiot!" he yelled.  "Were you
seen?"
     "Truth be told, I wasn't watchin'."
     "Wow, now's not the time to get smart-mouthed."
     "Alright, alright.  I think we was kinda seen, but I don't know if my face was
seen.  Just my cheeks."
     That comment drew a swift cuff from the infuriated Master.  "That's the last
time!  I hope you can't be identified."
     The Master paused for a  moment and pictured the mayor's young wife with a
smile.  "Let's hope you get away with it.  I'm going to want details."
     Was Treach seen?  How will the Mayor react?  Stay tuned to find out!

                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     I fought hard to earn this title.  Thank you, Iaye, for honoring me as
Duelmaster.  I am humbled by the may fine warriors who have been here before me.
     I am a warrior, not a writer, hence my column will be short.  I speak with my
hands and skills and legs and weapons, and seldom with words.
     Fight on!
               Sgt Spencer, DMI

                                      SPY REPORT

     You elder fighters surely remember me.  The younger ones may call me Olaf 
Modeen.  I return to IAYE once again!  Biff!  Pow!  IAYE watched with glee as LENPROS 
got knocked off top spot by NATURE MADE!  Up 'n down.  Up 'n down.  Rankings always 
change.  Up 'n down.  I think I'm gonna be...  Well, NATURE MADE's 1st moved them up 
to 3-2-1 place.  Major screwup at LENPROS.  KENWOOD MILLER lost 14 points to LOVE IN 
VAIN.  Some new strategies, perhaps?  Maybe KENWOOD MILLER will provide more easy 
wins...  See how the Duelmaster challenged ALL JACKED UP's KOJAK?  That sort of 
initiative is how he got where he is now.  KOJAK was reminded on the sands why SGT. 
SPENCER is Duelmaster.  Wouldn't it be nice to have live subjects to practice on?  I 
hear some team is looking into the uses of convicted prisoners.   
     No matter the time or place, men will always duel.  How well I know the feeling 
of being in the most avoided team!  Don't fall out of practive, STORM'S REVENGE!  
Management must be dealin', as the boys at HER BEST ASSETS ain't reelin'!  STORM'S 
REVENGE's mad!  What do people see in GREY MATTER?  His 7-16-0?  OMNITRIX ain't 
talkin', but he's got 66 points.  ANTARCTICA didn't quite know what to make of a 
challenge he received from GRAVATTACK of OMNITRIX, who is 19 points below him.  
GRAVATTACK perhaps got his just desserts, seeing as he beat ANTARCTICA and ended up 
with 56 recognition points.   
     A fighter's lot is filled with strife, revenge, and killing.  Some fighters 
don't accept this.  The best do.  Who will dare fight THE GREAT LAKES, after she 
returned from the Dark Arena?  (For the record 4-3-1 is 33, and has she points) How 
long have I been here?  I got people to see, places to go...   
     Who knows what the future holds for a warrior.  More fights, there's no doubt.  
The end of another Spyreport!  That's cause for celebration in my book!  Time for my 
medication, so I'll leave now.  Practice, practice, practice!-- Olaf Modeen

                        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!
