                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of DULLENS!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp 
Eyes, Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  Former top team CARDOW HUNTERS was 
unseated this week as ALLITERATE ARMY moved up from 2nd ranking to take the top spot 
with a 5-0-0 record for the round.  SMALL FOX caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as she skillfully bested DRUNKEN GUARDSMAN and was awarded 16 
points in recognition.  Although LAME OX made a valiant effort, it did not suffice to 
topple the reign of victorious SIERRA.  Would you believe that over half of the old 
women in DULLENS seem to feel that they could fight better than you gladiators?   
     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!   
     The girls are as pretty in DULLENS as ever I remembered them....and the fighters 
as ugly!  Don't let your reputation slip!  Sadly warriors, now longer can I keep thy 
company nor savor the ale of thy fine city.  Depart I must and soon!  Till next we 
meet remember - the pen is mightier than the sword, but a maul is a different 
story!-- Zontani Sharp Eyes

TEN fights, new people here!  This is so exciting!  True, the new team fought nothing
but standbys, but they'll rise in the ranks.  We await them eagerly.

Two-three for us today, with D'Artangnon being the double loser and everybody else
trashing us.  Sometimes, life is hard, but it's better than not having a life. --

BLACKHAWK (13-5596) CARDOW HUNTERS (445)

                        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!
