                             Notes from the arena champ.

     I love the smell of chili in the morning.  Smells like... victory.

Chili Con Carnage

                                      SPY REPORT

     Welcome ZORPUNT.  I, Olaf Modeen remember this place well.  Many the fights have 
I fought here.  The celebrations, the disappointments...  What's with FUNKY DIABETIC? 
He actually beat MEDAL OF HONOR Z3's SERGEANT 7, and walked away with 11 more points 
from the fight.  Major screwup at MEDAL OF HONOR Z3.  SERGEANT 7 lost 9 points to 
FUNKY DIABETIC.  Some new strategies, perhaps?  Maybe SERGEANT 7 will provide more 
easy wins...  I'm sure ZORPUNT is excited about WHAT?, the new Duelmaster from TRIBE. 
(remember?)  But when you've seen as many as I have...  Wouldn't it be nice to have 
live subjects to practice on?  I hear some team is looking into the uses of convicted 
prisoners.   
     If at first you don't succeed, avoid.  That'll get you in the Spyreports.   
     Warriors of ZORPUNT unite.  You have only your games to lose!  Someone told 
CHILI CON CARNAGE that TRIBE never Bloodfeuded, that he'd have an easy kill.  Well, 
I'm sure whoever misled you is right sorry.  Many a warrior has met his fate in a 
hungover stupor.  You young rapscallions, take note!   
     Who knows what the future holds for a warrior.  More fights, there's no doubt.  
All work and no play makes Olaf a dull fighter.  Work and play no fighter dull Olaf.  
Olaffighterwork and no play.  Time for my medication, so I'll leave now.  Practice, 
practice, practice!-- Olaf Modeen

My condolences to The Tribe for the loss of their top warrior. -- One Armed Bandit,
mgr of Shewish Buffet

What are the Krill Cavalry doing in Zorpunt, anyway?  Perhaps we need to brush up on
our geography. -- Hero Sandwich and Baby Back Ribs

Wow, I "devastated" a Fratsfa Slave.  It would've been more fun, those Fratsfans are
so stuck up, if he'd actually BEEN Fratsfan, but... oh, well.  Everybody else on the
team lost.  Pah.  Slackers, really.  Well, maybe not Pearl, but she should have KNOWN
she couldn't eat all those ribs alone; especially since those dwarves are so GREASY.
-- Pogo Polen

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

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!
