                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Brainssss....  Braaaaaaaiiiiinnnnssss....  *cough cough*  Sorry, hate it when
that happens.  Thank you everyone who let me beat them, if it weren't for your
losses, I'd never have made it here today.  More than the losses though, I'm most
glad for the stats and skills.... traiiiinnsss  traaaaaaaiiiiiinnnsss...."

                                      SPY REPORT

     The sages err'd not in their foretelling of a god descending upon DULLENS, for 
I, Novgorodny Vir, have returned!  Good things come to those who fight well, as 
CARDOW HUNTERS can attest, moving up by 0.  Practice pays for STONEDOG, who pummelled 
POLYJUICE TWINS, to pocket 15 points.  A certain someone should cut down on the 
drinking and practice more, after losing 10 points to MAGICAL SHORTCUT.  (Discrete 
enough, FATHER OF FOUR?) ZOMBIE PARENT successfully staved off a grab for the roses 
by SCOURGE of THE CONFESSIORS.  Does DULLENS have no one talented enough to dethrone 
it?  Word has it one team in DULLENS is using psychics to predict wins.  They lead a 
charmed life!   
     And how sociable are DULLENS' warriors?  Come, let us see.   
     Ah, the duel!  The roar of the oppenent, the smell of the crowd!  Oh hard!  that 
to strike a flame, the match itself must needs be wasting!   
     Leave me now, you base fools!  More important duties call me.  Like a mixed 
metaphor, and an overtaxed simile, I now bid DULLENS farewell-- Novgorodny Vir

Polyjuice Twins -- Ha!  You thought you could gang up on me, did you?  I sneer.  I
squish all your juice out.  Take that! -- Blackhorn

Father of Four -- It would be better if you, with your family responsibilities, took
a steadier job and one less likely to lead to your untimely death.  Although, now
that I think about it, any death could be considered timely, in its way.  So, go
ahead, die!  See if I care for your starving children! -- Stonedog

New Amusement Park -- No longer new, and not terribly amusing.  Rides and games like
ring-toss bore me. -- Biting Fly

Bruce Lee's Brother wasn't much of a date.  A little grabby, so I finally had to rain
all over his parade. -- Rainbird

This Salesman guy offered me a bridge, he had engravings of it and everything, and I
always wanted a bridge of my own.  Somehow, though, I don't have the bridge, and my
trade goods are gone, too.  This is not what I expected of the Big City. -- Anvil

                        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!
