                                      SPY REPORT

     You elder fighters surely remember me.  The younger ones may call me Olaf 
Modeen.  I return to DULLENS once again!  What's with JOEL OLIVER?  He actually beat 
CARDOW HUNTERS' BLACKBUCK, and walked away with 13 more points from the fight.  Major 
screwup at CARDOW HUNTERS.  BLACKBUCK lost 10 points to JOEL OLIVER.  Some new 
strategies, perhaps?  Maybe BLACKBUCK will provide more easy wins...  Try as he 
might, SCOURGE wasn't good enough at persuading KALLI ELISABETH to step down from the 
Duelmaster's throne...  Advice to fighters with a 1 will--give up fighting!   
     If at first you don't succeed, avoid.  That'll get you in the Spyreports.   
     Warriors of DULLENS unite.  You have only your games to lose!  Many a warrior 
has met his fate in a hungover stupor.  You young rapscallions, take note!   
     Who knows what the future holds for a warrior.  More fights, there's no doubt.  
Are you as tired of reading this as I am of writing it?  Actually, I guess I'm 
writing it before you read it.  Oh, well.  Remember--a good fighter needs both good 
skills and good luck.  Until next time,-- Olaf Modeen

Cassie Elizabeth -- You defintely have my measure now.  By the end of the first
minute, it was evident that I was going to lose.  Damn. -- Stormbird
P.S.  And only one skill.  Double damn.  I'm not stupid, so is it you?

Thumbscrews -- As if! -- Blackbuck

Styx -- I visualized you as a horseshoe on an anvil and hammered you good! -- Soft
Rock
P.S.  Seems to have been a bad style match for you.

Inept Adversary -- Quite so, and I appreciate it. -- Little Fox

Magical Shortcut -- You see how it is, taking shortcuts with actions of power just
does not pay. -- Crowfoot

                 NEW TEAMS IN THE TEMPORARY TOURNAMENT ARENA (DM 85)

Please note that all new teams created at the Face-to-Face were temporarily placed in 
a temporary Tournament Arena, DM 85.  If you requested that your team be placed in a 
specific arena, it has already transferred to that arena.  Any teams not transferred 
out of DM 85 by October 1 will be deleted.  If you have questions about any of your 
teams, please contact Customer Service. -- RSI 

                        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!
