                                      SPY REPORT

     Oh, hi.  Its just little 'ol Debby Tonte.  Thought I'd check out KALTOS to see 
what's new.  MVP award for BALISONG?  ZOMBIE SQUAD's proud of him after beating 
CONVICTED THIEF and getting 22 points.  Talk about yer major upsets!  QUENT SORN's 
match with TIK-TOK cost him a loss of 10 points!  The Duelmaster isn't going to stop 
just cause he's Number One!  IRVINA KORL knows this.  She was challenged by the 
Duelmaster.  Was that a tear I saw in IRVINA KORL's eye, as she took over 
Duelmastership?  And wasn't SONNY fit to be tied!  Who was the wiseguy that said 
KALTOS' Duelmaster was paying for drinks at The Victory Tavern?  Don't look at me!   
     AAARRGH!!!  I HATE SPYREPORTING!!!  Sorry.  I just had to say it.  ZOMBIE SQUAD 
was KALTOS' most avoided team.  Is there some award for that?  I don't know what 
TECHNOLOGY's been doing.  They certainly haven't been accepting many fights from 
ZOMBIE SQUAD, that's fer sher.  Like, is IRVINA KORL popular, or what?  She was 
challenged the most in all of KALTOS!  She's got a 25-24-0, is that good?   
     Challenges, revenges, Bloodfeuds.  All KALTOS ever talks about is fighting!  Me, 
I'm more laid back.  What if they had a fight and nobody showed up?  I'd be out of a 
job, that's what!!!   
     Remember, blood on a purple robe may stain.  Soak it in cold water, and hand 
wash.  I'm getting tired of writing this stuff, so I'm calling it quits.  Remember 
you guys, ease up sometimes!  Chill out!  Later, Debby Tonte

Leora -- Your speed is breathtaking.  Well done. -- Goodbody

Gidget -- I found myself surprised in victory.  But then again, Venus was in the
house of Capricorn. -- Solitaire

     And what was she doing there, eh?

Mercury -- We're going to have to do something about you. -- May Day

     Vaporize him and put him in a lamp?

Maurina -- Wow!  Lucky win for me! -- Q'ute

Solitaire -- Well, that's just confusing.  I thought you were a card-player, and I
was going to ask for some pointers.  And then you weren't, after all.  Oh, well, I'll
just have to manage on my own.  The time between fight days, especially the nights,
can get really long, you know.  And, I swear, Jorja doesn't even have to be on the
island at all to know when we go out at night.  The lectures we get!  It's just
easier to stay in.  Boring, but easier. -- Gidget Imer

     Have you considered inviting people to visit you in your guildhouse?

Sonny -- My thanks for everything, especially not killing me. -- Irvina Korl, still
stunned by her good fortune

Ms Goodbody -- You want to watch out for those secret admirers.  Some of them
practically DEFINE "kink-o."  If this one gives you any trouble, just whistle and
I'll drift along and lend a hand. -- Leora Noeval

Q'ute -- I have to say, well, I don't HAVE to, but I'm GOING to say, you didn't need
that.  You're plenty enough trouble as it is. -- Maurina Obel

Oh-John, Persistent Beggar at Small -- You could at least sell people a pencil or an
apple or something.  Not expect something for nothing, which is the great flaw of our
times. -- Quent Sorn

Well, it appears that the Commission dumped the lot on me.  Two tactics!  Appropriate
ones, I suppose, but... eh.  Like Jorja's going to let me use them?  I gather she has
it in mind to maybe send the recent graduates from this team to Darkholm for the next
semester, not a thrilling prospect, but... eh.  So, no details posted.  Although, she
"pays attention" so, um, "well" that I bet if you asked, she'd post them ANYWAY.  And
it isn't like people in Darkholm read newsletters. -- Irvina Korl

     If there's anyone in Darkholm at all.

Ms Goodbody -- Well, mainly what I learned going around the block is where the
pavement is cracked.  But anything I can help with, just say the word. -- Irvina

P Galore -- Only if it's non alcoholic.  I don't do alcoholic, can't stand the stuff.
-- Maurina
P.S.  I know a place that does good shish-kebab, if you'd like to try it?  I think
probably rabbit, but the sauce is so good, who cares?

                        WINTER FACE-TO-FACE IN SUNNY ARIZONA!

Our next winter FTF will be held in Tempe, Arizona, January 14-16, 2011.  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 $129.00 per night, 1-2 occupancy, which 
includes full cooked breakfast, complimentary manager's reception (yes, really!), 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 22 
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!
