                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, TELORINTHE?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed 
to see KELLUMBO'S INITS. win a fight and gain 25 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, ROOK 
beat MORBID ANGEL and MORBID ANGEL lost 14 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  And if 
variety is the spice of life, TELORINTHE may be getting bland, as WHITEY D'EAGLE 
stays top dog in the city.  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.  CHAPEL OF THE GHOULS, I suppose you'll be glad to know 
you were this turn's most avoided team.  Care to know who is the most afraid of you?  
And who led the way in this mass act of cowardice?  Let's see, well, whatcha know?  
It was BAD SIGNS.  Ha ha ha ha!  Ooh, I'm frightfully impressed, LUMP 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.  Let's see, 14-4-3.  Pretty good record for a living 
warrior.  A sad one though, for a dead one.  Such is the case for ORGAN GRINDER of 
CHAPEL OF THE GHOULS.  Tsk.  And what a stunning loss we have here, boys and girls, 
SILVERBACK of NONSUCH HOUSE has added the final loss to his 16-14-1.  Tee hee!  You 
can run, WHITEY D'EAGLE, but maybe you can't hide from CHAPEL  OF THE GHOULS.  
Killing ORGAN GRINDER is something the rest of NONSUCH HOUSE may not be able to help 
you with.  Seriously now, is it really honorable for LAKE EFFECT SNOW from BAD SIGNS 
to kill LORIC HOWLER and give NONSUCH HOUSE the chance to bloodfeud?  Mmmm, could be. 
A big yahoo goes out to GROGAN DA TROLL this turn, for revenging NONSUCH HOUSE's 
bloodfeud against OLDIES' warrior BULLDOG.  Heh, heh, heh.  Titanium shields and 
bamboo daggers, guess what brave team is developing these kinds of weapons?   
     What does the TELORINTHE arena have in common with the inns?  It's just as 
comfortable to sleep in either place.  Ha ha ha ha!  Phlllt!  Just had to do that 
before I leave the fine city of TELORINTHE.  I feel much better now.  I see the 
crowds are getting restless, I must leave now-- Snide Clemens

Nonsuch House -- I apologize deeply for the kill of Battle Beast.  I did not intend
to do such, but accept the consequences. -- Bulldog

Nonsuch House -- May Battle Beast fight well in That Great Arena In The Sky and may
your new recruit be a godling. -- Coach, Manager Of Oldies

with me. -- Cannelton

Dangerous Criminal -- Thanks for showing up and at least looking dangerous. -- St
Michael's

Petro Salm -- It was MY day--an ESPN Highlights day! -- Sport

Whitey D'Eagle -- You fought like a champ.  I, on the other hand, fought like an
altar boy.  Kudos. -- Altar Boy

So much for "still improving," we went oh-fer.  And the Hands are tired, something
about "how exhausting it is to write children's fiction."  What?  Since when, you
know?  We should have First Dibs.  But apparently not today. -- Petro Salm

                 NEW TEAMS IN THE TEMPORARY TOURNAMENT ARENA (DM 85)

Please note that all new teams created at the Face-to-Face were temporarily placed in 
a temporary Tournament Arena, DM 85.  If you requested that your team be placed in a 
specific arena, it has already transferred to that arena.  Effective immediately, any 
teams placed in DM 85 and not transferred out to another arena, will be automatically 
deleted a month after the tournament.  If you have questions about any of your teams, 
please contact Customer Service. -- RSI 

                        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!
