                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly TOBIR games.  Former top team F WORDS was unseated 
this week as THE DOGHOUSE moved up from 4th ranking to take the top spot with a 3-2-0 
record for the round.  Warriors--remember that glory waits always around the corner!  
Witness how this week THE DOGHOUSE went 3-2-0 to move up 3 in the rankings.  In one 
of the week's more notable duels, LUG NUT put down FILIBUSTER, causing him to lose 15 
points of recognition in the process.  Due to his absence and inability to defend the 
throne, NORIX has lost the title of Duelmaster.  The city has turned out in honor of 
ITALIAN STALLION, for with his arena victory he may now lay claim to the highest 
position in the city!  Heed this!  A seer has warned that if exactly 6 die in duels 
this week, the whole city shall perish!  Just remember...5 or 7!   
     I have been in deep conclave with my spies who watched all that has recently 
transpired.  Indeed there is much I would report.  TOBIR, city of gladiators!  Mighty 
among the names of thy guilds is THE DEATH SQUAD, a guild shunned and avoided by many 
in the weekly duels.  Apparently the stalwarts of ZOMBIE SQUAD are catching the bulk 
of jests down at the challenging board for their large share of the avoids.  Mighty 
fighters cannot but expect competition from those below.  FILIBUSTER take warning!  
You have more than a few enemies in TOBIR.  I can not but mention with disdain the 
name of VLAD THE IMPALER who this week posted a challenge to a warrior a full 14 
points below in the rankings.  I thought VLAD THE IMPALER showed great skill and 
promise when he was subdued by DOGGO.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     What warrior does not hone his years, impatiently waiting for the moment of his 
foe's mortality?  Look no more for CRAB MAN in the arena or on the streets of TOBIR.  
Its fate was sealed in the Dark Arena.  Inevitable for one at 5-12-1.  Must the 
anguished spirit of HOCK toss forever in the grave unrevenged?  Against the code, 
FANTASSIN has escaped his deed unpunished by THE DEATH SQUAD!  Some say a warrior is 
judged by the way he bears arms.  One thing is sure, better a dagger in hand then a 
sword on the belt!   
     The girls are as pretty in TOBIR as ever I remembered them....and the fighters 
as ugly!  Don't let your reputation slip!  Ahh, but I can hear the spires of a far 
off city calling to me.  I must away!  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

                        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 (480-897-7444), 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!
