                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly SOLVEN games.  Former top team MIDDLE WAY 15 was 
unseated this week as SERPENTS HOLD moved up from 2nd ranking to take the top spot 
with a 5-0-0 record for the round.  ASP caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial 
commission as it skillfully bested CHICKEN GUARD and was awarded 22 points in 
recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, THOME put down CRANKY OLD 
ROOSTER, causing him to lose 12 points of recognition in the process.  Although HEN 
OF DEATH made a valiant effort, it did not suffice to topple the reign of victorious 
LUGER.  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 SOLVEN "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!  Dark alleys may hide both secrets and assassins.  
In the arena there is only the brightness of steel.  Keep vigil always!   
     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.-- 
Zontani Sharp Eyes

when people do that. -- Dejanna Kalm

probably make everybody sick who ate it.  Probably too tough and too, ah, rangy. --
Gorlon Inthur

Chicken Guard -- I only wanted a couple of eggs for breakfast!  Honest. -- Lynnis
Nall

Embezzling Hen -- Embezzlers never thrive.  Remember that. -- Korine Orles

Balisong -- Ideally, there should be a sort of dance, kind of a hula-type, to go with
that song. -- Fedora Linde

                        WINTER FACE-TO-FACE IN SUNNY ARIZONA!

Our next winter FTF will be held in Tempe, Arizona, January 14-16, 2011.  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 $129.00 per night, 1-2 occupancy, which 
includes full cooked breakfast, complimentary manager's reception (yes, really!), 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 22 
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!
