                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of DULLENS!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp 
Eyes, Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  LAUGHTER REDKNIFE caught the eye of 
many in the gladiatorial commission as she skillfully bested UNEXPECTED SEQUEL and 
was awarded 10 points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, 
LAUGHTER REDKNIFE put down UNEXPECTED SEQUEL, causing her to lose 10 points of 
recognition in the process.  Not for nothing has SAUSAGE PARTY in the past laid claim 
to the Duelmaster's throne, and this week he's proven his combat skill yet again.  No 
confirmation, but my sources claim that the top team has gained their position using 
magical aids.  Charmed weapons perhaps?   
     Many and various are the arts of battle.  In DULLENS "art" is a word that has 
long since passed from the language!   
     Is not Death a warrior's foremost adviser?   Warriors, may this counselor stand 
ready at your right hand forever!  Fate is a fickle mistress.  She showers the 
miserable with fortune but sets enemies against the victorious.  Remember this!   
     If it were not for my skills as a spy I would have been mugged three times 
already in DULLENS.  Nice atmosphere you have here!  More than a sharp eye must I 
keep, indeed a stout pair of legs must I keep as well!  The endless paths of Alastari 
await me!  Till next we meet remember:  a fool flies into a rage quickly and often.  
The wise are angered by the same thing only once.  Zontani Sharp Eyes

Sausage Party -- Wow, you devastated Boozer?  I didn't realize your party was
teetotal.  Good luck on keep it that way, a lot of people can't stay off the stuff,
even if it ruins their dueling ability. -- Laughter Redknife

Unexpected Sequel -- Fool!  Quit while you're ahead, forego those unplanned sequels.
There is nothing good in them.  Self-plagiarism.  Bah. -- Anvil
P.S.  Besides, you need a loss, and I needed the win.  A congruence of needs.

Ghost of Eldrad -- Begone, ghost! -- Starflower

D'Artangnon -- Men!  All that swashing around with plumes on your hat doesn't do a
bit of good in the crunch. -- Laughter Redknife

Toodles Enraged! -- Anger is not your friend. -- Bearfoot

Bruce Lee's Brother -- Foolish boy!  You can't be your brother, and you shouldn't
try.  You were obviously intended by an all-seeing providence to shine shoes. --

                        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!
