                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, Warriors of ZENSU.  Allow this humble servant Novgorodny Vir to give 
you a respite from the fights in the form of this Spyreport.  Well, XCOM ALPHA, you 
can show this to your parents.  But you'll have to do better than 3-2-0 if you want 
your names in this space again...  Practice pays for BULL PORTER, who pummelled 
EMBEZZLING SCRIBE, to pocket 20 points.  Those who hoped for a new Duelmaster were 
disappointed by CONVICTED ASSASSIN, of ZENSU, who despite a 0-0-0 couldn't overcome 
ZENSU's Number 1.  So who's the team that's been walking into taverns last week and 
ordering milk?  Sounds like a PR stunt to me.   
     So much to report, so little time!  Like a horde of jackals fleeing from the 
lion, so did the "warriors" in ZENSU avoid GRIZZLED VETERANS.  The warriors of 
GRIZZLED VETERANS found their efforts at combat frustrated as MEDAL OF HONOR Z1 
apparently had more important things to do than fight.  Is it charming personality?  
Conversational abilities?  Good oral hygiene?  Whatever it is, EBBUTT MARSH is the 
most challenged warrior.   
     Like the wind whispering among the pines, do hearest I many disquieting rumors.  
SHEWISH GIANT in the Dark Arena wasn't enough for SHORTY of RANDOM.  Maybe that 
certain serving girl(?) at The Victory Tavern will be!  Questions are being raised 
about the disposing of severed body parts in the arena.  A certain tavern in ZENSU 
would I avoid!   
     All good things must come to an end.  More important duties call me.  Can 
anything compare to the pleasure of writing Spyreports for ZENSU?  On that giddy note 
I take my leave-- Novgorodny Vir

NINE fights outside the Dark Arena.  We are HOT.  Of course, it's August....  I have
to admit I was amused to see two soldiers lose to standbys, but that kind of thing
does happen, and they were a couple of the tougher standbys.  We went oh-fer, not so

great, but there it is. -- Nina Stenn
P.S.  Ebbutt is hiding in his room, embarrassed that "he allowed" the team to be
swept off the front page.  The rest of us helped with that, Eb.

     Hey, if he wants all the guilt, I say let him have it. -- Arenamaster Diego

                        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!
