                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, in IAYE a quiet thief gets rich, but a quiet spymaster gets poor.  So 
bring me ale and harken to my tidbits of news.  And let's see, WILLETA fought 
TRUSTWORTHY SCRIBE and gained 14 points and contributed to RED DOG GANG's 3-2-0.  
DARK CHOCOLATE has lost to M. CHARDINEE, falling 12 points, while helping make RED 
DOG GANG a 3-2-0 turn.  Due to his absence and inability to defend the throne, THE 
ROCK has lost the title of Duelmaster.  And not without some honor, SONORA SARA now 
claims the title and throne of Duelmaster of IAYE.  By the way, was that our 
Duelmaster that I saw last night, cramped under the table at The Dragon's Blood Inn?  
     I tell you, a green quarterstaff lasts longer than a seasoned sapling.  A basher 
friend of mine assures me this is true.   
     The Dark Arena is for those who cannot win, not who cannot lose with grace.  
Dignity in life or death is the warrior's creed.  Is it really true that IAYE has 
more dishwashers per capita that fighters?  Just thought I'd ask...   
     Remember, blood on the purple robe does not change it from a purple robe.  Dare 
to fight bravely.  Well, I'm burning daylight here in IAYE and I've a long road ahead 
of me.  Happy Trails.  Until you see my quill in IAYE again, farewell-- Alarond the

Xoxoxo -- I find it really strange, that you, a warrior of Love Letters, are a neuter
golem.  Can you explain this?  Because I'm really confused. -- Gissanniah
P.S.  And by your id number (the study of which is much neglected but repays effort):
4488, you give the impression of being more interested in cloning than other methods
of reproduction.

C-Cup -- Really!  Do you honestly believe that men are so shallow?  (pause for
thought)  Retract that question, and substitute, Do you honestly think that a mere C
will catch a man's eye when there are orcs around? -- Freeda

The Rock -- The willpower with which you resisted my dark lures is amazing.  Not
necessarily good, but amazing anyway. -- Dark Chocolate

That M. Chardinee is a wily one!  For a hotly contested minute he attacks me with his
epee, giving me a chance to get into the rhythm of parrying it, and then whammo,
minute two he starts using his offhand shortsword!  Who told him he could do that?
He did a lot of damage with that thing!  And then, when he had me reeling and so on,
he switched back to his epee--damn thing's nothing but a sharpened knitting needle,

you know--why, he just...well, he didn't KNIT me, I can tell you that! -- Sonora
Sara, planning something revengeful for the Chardinee, maybe involving habanero

Double-D -- And does that make me love you?  No. -- Willeta
P.S.  You should be an orc with a frontage like that.

The total number of fights calculated was reported as 250 fights.  This is a
misprint.  It should have read "over 2,500 fights." -- Baphomet

     Our next Winter Face-to-Face will be held on Martin Luther King weekend, Friday 
through Sunday, 14-16 January 2005, at the Embassy Suites in Tempe, Arizona (4400 S 
Rural Rd--this is the same hotel as last year).  Room rates are $139.00 per night,

street.  Look for transportation info in the tournament information sheet.
     The tournament information sheet/strategy sheet should be out sometime in late 
November/early December. 
     If you haven't been to a Face-to-Face before, you're overdue.  If you have, 
you'll be back.  Don't miss this one, it'll be a blast!  See you there!
