                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, Warriors of NIANIA.  Allow this humble servant Novgorodny Vir to give 
you a respite from the fights in the form of this Spyreport.  THE RUNAROUND had cause 
to celebrate, after ANSWER PACK got 20 points by beating BRAD PENNY.  OOZING MY MIND 
certainly had a baffled expression on its face, after losing to VENOMOUS CONCUBINE 
and losing 14 points in the process!  Now I can't insult ARCHED EYELID, as he has 
gloriously dueled to the top.  Oh great new Duelmaster!!!  (Stop me if I lay it on 
too thick) Word has it one team in NIANIA is using psychics to predict wins.  They 
lead a charmed life!   
     And how sociable are NIANIA's warriors?  Come, let us see.  To quell some nasty 
rumors, the guys in U PAY I SLAY 2 are not carrying any incurable diseases.  No need 
to avoid 'em.  As a woman of good breeding scorns the "warriors" of YELLOWSTONE 
YOGIS, so did that sorry team shy from U PAY I SLAY 2 Everyone is famous for fifteen 
minutes, and ANSWER PACK is it right now.  Most challenged warrior.  Isn't THE 
RUNAROUND proud!   
     The moving sword slashes, and having slashed, moves on...  Death (in the form of 
ANSWER PACK of THE RUNAROUND) knocked on BRAD PENNY's door.  What will YELLOWSTONE 
YOGIS do?  The suspense is killing me.  Oh hard!  that to strike a flame, the match 
itself must needs be wasting!   
     All good things must come to an end.  My fingers tire and I fear my incessant 
prattling may cause unfair judgement upon my impeccable character.  Like a mixed 
metaphor, and an overtaxed simile, I now bid NIANIA farewell-- Novgorodny Vir

Four-one?  I don't believe this, it's all some Dark Plot to puff us up so we'll
really hurt when we pull the next oh-fer.  But I gotta tell you, there's some people
here I wouldn't have thought would get into such murky business.  Things are going to
get Worse! -- Peter Netley

                        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!
