                                      SPY REPORT

     Busy, busy, busy, lots of things happening in ZUWAYZA this turn, and let's start 
with a look at some of the teams.  And let's see, MISCHEF fought CAPTURED ORC and 
gained 17 points and contributed to CURTAIN CALL's 3-1-1.  VIN DIESEL has lost to 
MALIGN, falling 1 points, while helping make XXX a 0-1-0 turn.  Defending his title 
for another turn, CHAOS kept ZUWAYZA's warrior, KUNG-FU MASTER, from claiming the 
throne.  Tell me, is nothing sacred?  I have heard from unimpeachable sources that 
The Drunken Ox uses trolls in their stew.  Talk about gristle!   
     He who challenges well, fights well.  He who avoids without cause, shall lose 
for good reasons.  My mama told me that one.   
     A coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave man only once.  Wise men know this to 
be true.  Is it really true that ZUWAYZA has more dishwashers per capita that 
fighters?  Just thought I'd ask...   
     I like this place, ZUWAYZA, the taverns have old wine, and young serving girls.  
Who could ask for more?  Well, I'm burning daylight here in ZUWAYZA and I've a long 
road ahead of me.  Happy Trails.  Until you see my quill in ZUWAYZA again, farewell-- 
Alarond the Scribe

members).  I've been out of the game for many (at least 5) years.  I would like to
hear from anyone who remembers me, as well as any Alliance that is seeking to add
experienced managers to their roster.  Contact me at:

                                FACE-TO-FACE XXXIV

     Our next Winter Face-to-Face will be held on Martin Luther King weekend, Friday 
through Sunday, 14-16 January 2005, at the Embassy Suites in Tempe, Arizona (4400 S 
Rural Rd--this is the same hotel as last year).  Room rates are $139.00 per night, 
1-4 occupancy, which includes breakfast.  The rooms are blocked.  The reservations 
number is 480-897-7444; tell them you're with the "Reality Simulations Face to Face 
Convention" block.  Our room block will be released in mid-December, so please make 
sure you reserve your room before then! 
     Room rates include a full cooked-to-order breakfast and a complimentary two-hour 
manager's reception.  There is a free shuttle to the airport, as well as free parking.  
The hotel is located down the freeway in Tempe.  All rooms have high speed internet 
(for an extra charge).  There is a fitness center, jacuzzi, and pool, and of course a 
bar and Mexican restaurant inside the hotel.  And there's Denny's right across the 
street.  Look for transportation info in the tournament information sheet.
     The tournament information sheet/strategy sheet should be out sometime in late 
November/early December. 
     If you haven't been to a Face-to-Face before, you're overdue.  If you have, 
you'll be back.  Don't miss this one, it'll be a blast!  See you there!
