                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
IAYE brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Later days, LENPROS, since RED DOG GANG 
took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  Of course, we're all 
terribly impressed to see EMERICA win a fight and gain 13 points, terribly.  Tsk, 
tsk, DREAM OF DAY beat CUP and CUP lost 9 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  Looks 
like IAYE has some guts at least, ISPEP the Duelmaster was this turn's 
most-challenged warrior.  And if variety is the spice of life, IAYE may be getting 
bland, as ISPEP stays top dog in the city.  Kickbacks and bribes, kickbacks and 
bribes, how else do you think some of these guys win their fights?  Skill?  Ha!   
     My mother always told me, 'If you don't have anything nice to say, start 
talking.' I loved that woman.  ANGRY BEES, I suppose you'll be glad to know you were 
this turn's most avoided team.  Care to know who is the most afraid of you?  And who 
led the way in this mass act of cowardice?  Let's see, well, whatcha know?  It was 
LENPROS.  Ha ha ha ha!   
     Death and Taxes.  The less death I see, the more it taxes my patience.  Let's 
see if anyone's dead or dying.  And what a stunning loss we have here, boys and 
girls, HONEY of ANGRY BEES has added the final loss to hers 3-9-0.  Tee hee!  We're 
all going to die in the end, so why worry if the fate catches up with you sooner that 
later?   
     There's got to be a better place in IAYE to get a drink than The Dragon's Blood 
Inn!  Any suggestions?  Phlllt!  Just had to do that before I leave the fine city of 
IAYE.  I feel much better now.  I see the crowds are getting restless, I must leave 
now-- Snide Clemens

Congratulations to ISPEP, the new Iaye Duelmaster. -- Lenpro

Ispep -- You handled me fair and square and quite soundly.  You deserve the DM crown.
-- Major Martin

Calvin -- Oh, no!  I am really, really sorry for the death.  I did not once hit where
I aimed.  Mea culpa. -- Doctor Dupree

We Lenpros regret the death of Calvin.  May he fight well in That Great Arena In The
Sky. -- Lenpro and The Lenpros

Health.  Humility.  Honor.  Iaye Forever. -- Lenpro

Moondog -- Maybe you can't teach an old dog new tricks but that old dog sure taught
me some new ones! -- Stealth

Dr Dupree -- Maybe it was my name but I guess it just wasn't meant to be. -- Calvin
P.S.  11-4-14-17-8-9-21 at +1 to 5 Att

Welcome back to Random, Her Best Assets, and Rescue Rangers.  May you stay a while!
-- Madwand of Steel Blades

Lenpros -- I thought about sending Stealth after Dr. Dupree to avenge Calvin's death
but I didn't see any good coming of that for either of our warriors (well, at least
not mine).  Carter will be challenging next turn to see what my newest recruit is
made of. -- Madwand

Stealth -- Sneaking around again!  Why do you humans insist on doing this? -- Moondog
P.S.  Okay, dogs do it sometimes, when we're hunting, but that isn't the same at all.
Really, it isn't.

Aram -- You have helped me demonstrate that I can be a real guard dog, not just some
(curled lip of scorn) house pet.  I thank you for that, and when you get out of the
Infirmary, I would be glad to give you one of my best bones. -- Pug

Cup -- So there. -- Little Rosie

Okay!  I've been wanting to bite someone for WEEKS, and I finally got a chance at the
Ruthless Jaywalker.  No one can complain about that, he's a bad guy, after all.  He
doesn't follow the rules. -- Stripe

Honey -- I think you got the best out of that.  I had to go and do my stuff in
public, and you got to lie around and sleep all the time.  I might almost have traded
with you. -- Splash

                        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!
