                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly MALCORN games.  SABBATH caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested BADGER and was awarded 16 points in 
recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, SABBATH put down BADGER, 
causing him to lose 11 points of recognition in the process.  This time victory fell 
to the grasp of the usurper.  All hail DUSKBLOOD PUDDING, Duelmaster of MALCORN!  
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!   
     Many and various are the arts of battle.  In MALCORN "art" is a word that has 
long since passed from the language!  My inside sources tell me that the team to beat 
in MALCORN these days is TERMINUS.  At least, most blades in town are looking to 
avoid them.  If you didn't look down dark alleys you'd have been hard pressed to find 
any of CRUCIAL TAUNT last week.  Busy avoiding TERMINUS?  Mighty fighters cannot but 
expect competition from those below.  QUASIL take warning!  You have more than a few 
enemies in MALCORN.  A match that raised a few eyebrows at the games this week, it 
seems that STOLEYOURSPOT posted a challenge against the more highly recognized 
QUASIL.  The results, you ask?  Well, the firebrand STOLEYOURSPOT was bested by 
QUASIL.  Remember warriors, this is the discipline of steel.   
     Vendettas.  Bloodied blades and broken spears.  Indeed the city has seen more 
than its fair share of red in recent times.  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!  
     A thought before I go.  Each warrior practices one style, but must not the wise 
manager learn the secrets of them all?  Ahh, but I can hear the spires of a far off 
city calling to me.  I must away!  Till we meet again, remember:  a turtle walks 
slow, hides head in a shell, and harms no one; a lion runs to slay its prey.--

To:         All Managers

In the interest of preserving our natural resources and preventing managerial writer's 
cramp, census forms will be provided for warriors by request only, effective 
immediately.  Managers may register their warriors' races and/or favorite sayings by 
simply writing them on a separate piece of paper and submitting them to the Commission.  
For any questions, please contact the Gladiatorial Commission. 

                        WINTER FACE-TO-FACE IN SUNNY ARIZONA!

Our next winter FTF will be held in Tempe, Arizona, January 17-19, 2014.  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 $145.00 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 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!
