      For the title, I fight M. Chardinee?  This is sad.

                                         Beliss Don

P.S.  Scinitar favorite--YES!
P.P.S.  And I'm EXTREMELY trustworthy.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, in KALTOS a quiet thief gets rich, but a quiet spymaster gets poor.  
So bring me ale and harken to my tidbits of news.  The THE MIDDLE WAY 5 guild has had 
a 4-1-2 turn and deserves to be watched in the future.  You never know where this 
kind of thing can lead.  And let's see, GATOR BAIT fought MALEFACTOR and gained 19 
points and contributed to BLITZKRIEG's 3-0-1.  The attempts to dethrone the 
Duelmaster have failed, and MANUTE BOL remains KALTOS' top warrior for another turn.  
By the way, was that our Duelmaster that I saw last night, cramped under the table at 
The Victory Tavern?   
     He who challenges well, fights well.  He who avoids without cause, shall lose 
for good reasons.  My mama told me that one.   
     We only live a short time in this world, so why not take a sharp blade, and 
shave it close?  Whatever bright future MALEFACTOR may have had, it's all history 
now.  The manager of SCOUNDRELS has lost a promising 2-0-0 warrior.  A brave warrior 
does not carry a red shield, he has nothing to cover or hide when the fight is over.  
Consider well.   
     Remember, blood on the purple robe does not change it from a purple robe.  Dare 
to fight bravely.  It's been nice chatting with you, until we meet again, keep your 
swords sharp and your hammers heavy.  Until you see my quill in KALTOS again, 
farewell-- Alarond the Scribe

Insanity -- You certainly come by your name honestly.  Given your style, your actions
in this fight were, indeed, totally insane.  What were you thinking? -- Ferghan Hohl

Zakau -- I hope someone mugs you in an alley as you leave the arena. -- Erloi Gill

Hoffa -- I wish I could say that in beating you I have achieved a great victory,
but...(sigh) who'd believe that? -- Norle Parth

Burning Man -- Come back when you're just ashes. -- Ingold Kerr
P.S.  Or even later.

Assur -- You're leaving?  (bursts into tears)  Don't go! -- Nick
P.S.  No, seriously, if you have to leave, you have to, but you will be missed.

Miss Don, Beliss, if I may -- I salute your effort, which was worthy, and I've seen a
lot of gladiators come and go, so I know. -- M. Tolovi Chardinee
P.S.  If I might solicit a favor from you, just a little thing, there is a small
package which I need taken to the Isle.  I am sure I could not find a more
trustworthy courier, and I would, of course, be prepared to defray your expenses on
the trip....

We sent in personals last time, and certainly hope they have arrived by now. -- Nick,
Middle Way

Manute Bol -- Ah, I can see that you are definitely a suspicious person!  A neuter
golem for starters, and then...left-handed!  Sinister.  Definitely sinister. --
Beliss Don
P.S.  But at least you properly earned your position as Duel2Dude.  Congratulations.
That was well done.

Zakau -- (scowling fiercely)  I know what a "john" is, it's a metal container for
stuff.  You are not one...unless you're full of it, which is possible.  Phew! --
Norle Parth

Flynn -- You're too big.  You intimidated me.  I hate it when people loom over me,
especially when said loomers are armed and dangerous. -- Erloi Gill

Hoffa -- YOU are a john, in every sense.  Gods, I hate you! -- Ferghan Holh

Persistent Beggar -- You, sir, are definitely a candidate for the Darwin Award.  You
hold out your hand, I cut it off, you hold out the other hand, I cut that one off,
and you STILL stand there with that wimpy grin, and you have the NERVE to say that
this will make it easier to beg, because you'll be so much more an object of pity....

manager's reception.  There is a free shuttle to the airport, as well as free parking.  
The hotel is located down the freeway in Tempe.  All rooms have high speed internet

bar and Mexican restaurant inside the hotel.  And there's Denny's right across the 
street.  Look for transportation info in the tournament information sheet.
     The tournament information sheet/strategy sheet should be out sometime in late 
November/early December. 
     If you haven't been to a Face-to-Face before, you're overdue.  If you have, 
you'll be back.  Don't miss this one, it'll be a blast!  See you there!
