                                      SPY REPORT

     It is I, Novgorodny Vir, Spymaster of Spymasters.  Look on my work, ye mighty, 
and despair!  Practice pays for AZRAEL, who pummelled HOROLD JEMANS, to pocket 14 
points.  HOROLD JEMANS certainly had a baffled expression on his face, after losing 
to AZRAEL and losing 13 points in the process!  8 BALL found out that KALTOS isn't a 
democracy.  You've gotta be the best to be Duelmaster here!  Word has it one team in 
KALTOS is taking speech lessons to try to bore their opponent to death.  I'll bet it 
works.   
     A Zenmaster once told me, 'Does not the spinning wheel turn?  And do not the 
little birds cry out?'  Any ideas?  To quell some nasty rumors, the guys in POOL 
PARTY are not carrying any incurable diseases.  No need to avoid 'em.  As a woman of 
good breeding scorns the "warriors" of TECHNOLOGY, so did that sorry team shy from 
POOL PARTY  
     The moving sword slashes, and having slashed, moves on...  Admittedly Death 
waits for no one, but me thinks VINNY THE JET of RENEGADES II (6-2-0) is being sent 
off a little prematurely.  Hey RENEGADES II!  Is there some deep dark, unmentionable 
secret as to why SPONGE II has been sent to the Dark Arena?   7-0-0 isn't so shabby!  
The manager at RENEGADES II must have some new strategy for sending BRAND, a warrior 
with 3-0-0, to the Dark Arena.  Watch this space!  Ask not a spymaster for counsel, 
for he will pontificate long after you have fallen into an unconscious stupor.   
     Do not think spyreporting in KALTOS is the highlight of my life.  My fingers 
tire and I fear my incessant prattling may cause unfair judgement upon my impeccable 
character.  KALTOS, I leave you now.  The Duelmaster has agreed to foot my bill at 
The Victory Tavern.  'Til next time-- Novgorodny Vir

Judas Prius -- I can't answer for anyone else, but I always read the non-golem
entries into the newsletter.  Sometimes even the golem stuff, if I'm not pushed for
time. -- Jorja

Watson -- I suppose that was "elementary"?  Well, there were elements involved,
anyway. -- Just Losin
P.S.  I guess it was too much to expect ME to get a winning record.

Hextor -- Thanks!  I really needed that. -- Riella True

Quartus -- I guess I'm more suited to a pintus. -- Melandar Orbin

Azrael -- Haven't seen you around before, and I could've stood not seeing you this
time.  Well, not seeing you on the sands.  I could stand to see you over a dinner
table. -- Nolber Pring

Ghost of Dr. Ellis -- Sorry about that last comment, it was tasteless.  I try not to
do tasteless.  Even more or less sorry about your death, although by the end of the
fight, it was pretty clear that either you died or I did, and I wasn't read for that.
-- Horold Jemans

                        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!
