                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Consider yourself totally decoded, Da Vinci.  Go back to painting smirking
women, okay?  You aren't meant for this life.

                                      SPY REPORT

     It's me, The Unknown Spymaster here with my bag to give you the news on last 
week's fights.  Hey everybody, watch out for CRIME AND PUNISHMENT, who flew up 15 
points in the rankings after mashing KHALHUMS DWARF like a melon.  Keep your eye on 
this gal.  Ya know, some days it doesn't pay to walk out on the sands.  PARACHUTE CAT 
was subdued by FENRIS KHAN and drops 5 points.  It's a proud day for the TL;DR 
stable, as their warrior, DA VINCI CODE, ascended the Duelmaster's throne.  Can you 
believe they are paying me 10 gold to deliver this stuff?   
     Let's dig a little deeper into what's happening in the JHELUM arena.   
     Being a spy is great--other people die and you spend the rest of the day 
drinking to their memory.  Better tanked than dead!  Remember:  alliances are great, 
but try and take your ally in the arena with you and see what happens.   
     I think I had better cut this one short.  It's been nice chatting to those of 
you whom I have not offended yet.  Okay, so I may not be the world's best comedian, 
but then you guys aren't the world's best warriors.  Its been fun, and I'm sure you 
enjoyed it (boos).  Now that I've got you worked up for Snide Clemens, I'll be 
leaving-- The Unknown Spymaster

                        WINTER FACE-TO-FACE IN SUNNY ARIZONA!

Our next winter FTF will be held in Tempe, Arizona, January 13-15, 2012.  It will be 
held at the Embassy Suites Hotel in Tempe, Arizona (480-894-7444), the same hotel as 
last year by popular request.  Room rates are $134.00 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--please make your reservation by December 15 
before the block is released!  (This is prime season for Phoenix, and people have been
unable to book rooms because they waited too long.)  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!
