                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
KOLACT brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  ABOMINATION turned their 4-1-1 turn 
into a 2nd place rank in the listings this turn.  Any better than this, and you get 
put on hit lists.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed to see SAUSAGE STUFFING 
win a fight and gain 16 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, CELL BLOCK A beat SOCRATES and 
SOCRATES lost 6 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  And if variety is the spice of 
life, KOLACT may be getting bland, as NOVA CAT stays top dog in the city.  Kickbacks 
and bribes, kickbacks and bribes, how else do you think some of these guys win their 
fights?  Skill?  Ha!   
     He who fights and runs away will live to fight another day, the coward.  THIRSTY 
THUGS, I suppose you'll be glad to know you were this turn's most avoided team.  Care 
to know who is the most afraid of you?  And it looks like THE HOLY LEGION avoided 
them the most this turn.  What a pack of would be losers, if you ask me.  Hmph.  JOBS 
was challenged more times this turn than the Duelmaster.  Now was the DM insulted or 
feared?  Heh, heh.  I guess I can give a little credit to TEMPE POSTMASTER of RAGE 
AGAINST for challenging up by 24 to VATOS LOCOS.  TEMPE POSTMASTER lost to get 57 
points of recognition.   
     Ah, now we come to my favorite part, where we see all the guys who are dead and 
gone, and get to see if their team cared.  Whoa!  I'll even buy 55 IN A 54 a drink 
tonight!  Anyone who can come back from the Dark Arena, I want to be on his good 
side!  ABOMINATION has cause to pause today, as MASS EFFECT 3 was sent to the Dark 
Arena, and came back--though not in the best of moods, I'll wager.  Consider SHERMAN 
gone, and LEGION OF BOOM unfeeling, letting the bloodfeud for his death go 
unrevenged.  Honor is like a chainmail shirt, it only shines through use.  Certain 
nameless cowards will doubtless rebuke me on this one.   
     There's got to be a better place in KOLACT to get a drink than Don Corleone's!  
Any suggestions?  Phlllt!  Just had to do that before I leave the fine city of 
KOLACT.  I feel much better now.  I see the crowds are getting restless, I must leave 
now-- Snide Clemens

                        WINTER FACE-TO-FACE IN SUNNY ARIZONA!

Our next winter FTF will be held in Tempe, Arizona, January 16-18, 2015.  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 $149.00 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 reservations now if you plan to go.  This is prime season for 
Phoenix, and this year will be crazy:  the Superbowl, Phoenix Open, auto auction, PF 
Chang's Marathon, and more are all during that time.  The hotel will be filling up 
quickly and I won't be able to add rooms to the block after they are full.  So please 
book your room now -- if you can't make it you can cancel your reservation, but we 
hope you do!

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!
