                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of LYRATILAN!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp 
Eyes, Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  Former top team DARK FORCES was 
unseated this week as GOTTA GET A CLUE moved up from 2nd ranking to take the top spot 
with a 1-4-0 record for the round.  GOG OF MAGOG caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested TRUSTWORTHY SCRIBE and was awarded 21 
points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, MRS. PEACOCK put 
down APOLLYON, causing him to lose 6 points of recognition in the process.  This time 
victory fell to the grasp of the usurper.  All hail INDIGO, Duelmaster of LYRATILAN!  
Heed this!  A seer has warned that if exactly 6 die in duels this week, the whole 
city shall perish!  Just remember...5 or 7!   
     Many and various are the arts of battle.  In LYRATILAN "art" is a word that has 
long since passed from the language!   
     What warrior does not hone his years, impatiently waiting for the moment of his 
foe's mortality?  Fate is a fickle mistress.  She showers the miserable with fortune 
but sets enemies against the victorious.  Remember this!   
     The girls are as pretty in LYRATILAN as ever I remembered them....and the 
fighters as ugly!  Don't let your reputation slip!  Ahh, but I can hear the spires of 
a far off city calling to me.  I must away!  Till next we meet remember:  a fool 
flies into a rage quickly and often.  The wise are angered by the same thing only 
once.  Zontani Sharp Eyes

Kraken -- You're sushi, and don't you forget it.  Not that any sane person would eat
raw squid, but there are a lot of insane people around. -- Isek Krol, not insane, not
an eater of sushi

Jeb Lewes, Veteran Mercenary -- You're getting darned pushy lately.  Who told you a
rolled-up newspaper was an acceptable weapon to use on a werewolf? -- Urbin Yates,
who would much rather read a newspaper than be hit by one

Robard Wolf, Master of Kung-Fu -- Ouch.  Dammit, you don't need kung-fu, you've got
teeth, haven't you? -- Kolter Neethe the ill-used

Mrs. Peacock -- When you whistle at me, I have to obey.  That means you don't need to
HIT me, just whistle. -- Tol Voram
P.S.  Okay, so it won't really work that way, since I'm not a werewolf, but I thought
it was worth a try.  I suppose you're one of those werewolves that has a "thing"
about Fratsfans.  Just my luck.

Bob Riddle, Constable with Compassion -- Oh, yes?  I can see that leash in your
pocket, and I'm not having any! -- Gilgamesh Idon

                        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!
