                                      SPY REPORT

     Thankyouthankyou.  It's great for me, The Unknown Spymaster to be back in 
ZORPUNT.  Hope you enjoy the show.  Oh, who am I kidding?  I already got paid!  Hey 
everybody, watch out for HARRY DRESDEN, who flew up 20 points in the rankings after 
mashing JELLO like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  And falling like a basher in 
the top ten was JELLO, who dropped 12 points after a disappointing (to say the least) 
bout with HARRY DRESDEN.  In front of all the crowds, PINK TACO took the Duelmaster's 
crown for hers own.  I give the bum two weeks.  An apple a day keeps the doctor away, 
but an onion a day keeps T.P.s at bay.   
     Here is other news that is of note.  Here's a song for you:  Who's afraid of the 
big, bad KRILL CAVALRY?  Big bad KRILL CAVALRY.  Big bad KRILL CAVALRY.  ZORPUNT's 
afraid of the big bad KRILL CAVALRY.  Tra la la la la!  Okay, so I may not be funny, 
but catch DISASTER's act in the arena.  Those acrobats seem to be fairly deft at 
running from KRILL CAVALRY.  Well dang howdy, but if challenges were votes, MODESTA 
STONE would be president.  Although it may be a contest she doesn't want to win.   
     Remember that an arena is not always a safe place to be, but it is one of the 
most interesting, though!  Knowing when to use the right tactics at the proper time 
is a very important step on the road to Duelmaster.   
     Well, there's the manager of the ZORPUNT giving me the 'cut' sign (or is that 
'They're going to strangle you in the alley?).  Well, there goes another Spy Report.  
Good luck in next week's fights.  And remember, you can pick your friends and you can 
pick your--(loud boos), oh, you've heard that one already!-- The Unknown Spymaster

                        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!
