                                      SPY REPORT

     It's me, The Unknown Spymaster, back to give you this week's Spy Report.  Sit 
back in your seats and we'll have more fun than a barrel of Zontanis.  Say good-bye 
to DOGS OF WAR, as they are pushed from the coveted top team spot by the PEARL JAM 
stable.  Call it luck at the right time or bribes in the right hands, but the new 
team ELITE JOUSTERS scored a 4-1-2 record this week.  Hey everybody, watch out for 
BAM BAM, who flew up 22 points in the rankings after mashing EMBEZZLING SCRIBE like a 
melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  Ya know, some days it doesn't pay to walk out on 
the sands.  SUN TREE lost to GRRR and drops 14 points.  Well, everybody's pal BUNKER 
BILL moved his record to 23-18-0 by defeating PETER RABBIT in the Duelmaster's Title 
Bout and gaining 13 recognition points.  An apple a day keeps the doctor away, but an 
onion a day keeps T.P.s at bay.   
     But enough of that bunch, let's get on to the wimps who like to avoid battle!   
     Remember that an arena is not always a safe place to be, but it is one of the 
most interesting, though!  Knowing when to use the right tactics at the proper time 
is a very important step on the road to Duelmaster.   
     Well, there's the manager of the JHELUM giving me the 'cut' sign (or is that 
'They're going to strangle you in the alley?).  Well, there goes another Spy Report.  
Good luck in next week's fights.  And remember, you can pick your friends and you can 
pick your--(loud boos), oh, you've heard that one already!-- The Unknown Spymaster

Two-three?  Bah!  Prejudice, vile prejudice.  They may be losers at heart, but they
ARE my teammates.  They can hold their own against zombies and deviants.  So it has
to be prejudice.  And maybe Mercury Retrograde. -- Bunker Bill
P.S.  I've always wondered about that, you know?  If Mercury Retrograde means bad
luck for one person, why not for all?

                        WINTER FACE-TO-FACE IN SUNNY ARIZONA!

Our next winter FTF will be held in Tempe, Arizona, January 17-19, 2014.  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 $145.00 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 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!
