                             Notes from the arena champ.

     A Veteran Mercenary?  I didn't *want* to fight the Veteran Mercenary, I wanted
to overpower another Hen.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly SOLVEN games.  GILLY MANDERSON caught the eye of many 
in the gladiatorial commission as she skillfully bested THE HONEST MERCHANT and was 
awarded 21 points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, STING put 
down LYNNIS NALL, causing her to lose 14 points of recognition in the process.  Not 
for nothing has KORINE ORLES in the past laid claim to the Duelmaster's throne, and 
this week she's proven hers combat skill yet again.  Informants "close" to the city 
champion have told me that he never fights without pantyhose on beneath his armor.  
Watch out!   
     I have been in deep conclave with my spies who watched all that has recently 
transpired.  Indeed there is much I would report.   
     Is not Death a warrior's foremost adviser?   Warriors, may this counselor stand 
ready at your right hand forever!  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!   
     If it were not for my skills as a spy I would have been mugged three times 
already in SOLVEN.  Nice atmosphere you have here!  Ahh, but I can hear the spires of 
a far off city calling to me.  I must away!  Till next we meet remember - the pen is 
mightier than the sword, but a maul is a different story!-- Zontani Sharp Eyes

Kyngrath -- And good luck to you, also. -- Jorja

Grimm -- And we wish you luck in your retooling.  Retoolling?  I dunno, either way
looks wrong, but the spell-checker, an idiot savant, says one ell. -- Jorja

I found the Veteran Mercenary easy, and NOT because Korine "softened him up" first.
It was a DIFFERENT Veteran Mercenary, a fresh, undamanged one.  I could tell. --
Lynnis Nall

Cult Members?  Bah, they know nothing about truly dark and desperate cults!  I could
show them a thing or two, but it's top secret.  Or maybe bottom secret. -- Erris
Leona

Roost Keeper -- Right, like anyone would trust a CAT to take care of a roost?  As if!
-- Gilly Manderson

That Constable was TOO Friendly.  The things he whispered in the clinches!  I hardly
knew where to look. -- Holm Joubert

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,

sheet and minioverviews some time in December.  We hope you're all looking forward to 
it and that we will see you there!
