                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of LYRATILAN!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp 
Eyes, Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  RACHEL caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested TRUSTWORTHY SCRIBE and was awarded 20 
points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, KEOKUK MOON put down 
JUNGLE JIM, causing him to lose 22 points of recognition in the process.  This time 
victory fell to the grasp of the usurper.  All hail GRAPE APE, Duelmaster of 
LYRATILAN!  Would you believe that over half of the old women in LYRATILAN seem to 
feel that they could fight better than you gladiators?   
     I have been in deep conclave with my spies who watched all that has recently 
transpired.  Indeed there is much I would report.  I saw one fighter that warriors 
avoided when this week's challenge seeking began.  WHEEL OF TIME is feared.  This 
much I can say.  If you didn't look down dark alleys you'd have been hard pressed to 
find any of PRIMATES-R-US last week.  Busy avoiding WHEEL OF TIME?  Loose talk at the 
arena has reached my ears and it but confirms the knowledge that many fighters are 
after INDIANA JAMES.  Watch your back!  A match that raised a few eyebrows at the 
games this week, it seems that JON SNOW posted a challenge against the more highly 
recognized INDIANA JAMES.  The results, you ask?  Well, the firebrand JON SNOW 
overcame INDIANA JAMES.  Remember warriors, this is the discipline of steel.   
     Is not Death a warrior's foremost adviser?   Warriors, may this counselor stand 
ready at your right hand forever!  Fate is a fickle mistress.  She showers the 
miserable with fortune but sets enemies against the victorious.  Remember this!   
     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 next we meet remember:  a fool flies into a 
rage quickly and often.  The wise are angered by the same thing only once.  Zontani

                        WINTER FACE-TO-FACE IN SUNNY ARIZONA!

Our next winter FTF will be held in Tempe, Arizona, January 16-18, 2015.  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 $149.00 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, 
jacuzzi, and pool.  The rooms are blocked--code RSI.

Please make your reservations now if you plan to go.  This is prime season for 
Phoenix, and this year will be crazy:  the Superbowl, Phoenix Open, auto auction, PF 
Chang's Marathon, and more are all during that time.  The hotel will be filling up 
quickly and I won't be able to add rooms to the block after they are full.  So please 
book your room now -- if you can't make it you can cancel your reservation, but we 
hope you do!

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!
