                             Notes from the arena champ.

     This is even more a pits than last time.  I didn't mean to kill Peep, and it was
really the Infirmary's doing anyway, bunch of butchers.  But not only did I kill
Peep, or set him up for it, I seem to have killed the arena as well.  Nobody fought
but our team and Peep!  This is ridiculous.  And sad, but arenas do die.  I guess it
was Niatoli's time.

                                      SPY REPORT

     It's me, The Unknown Spymaster, back to give you this week's Spy Report.  Sit 
back in your seats and we'll have more fun than a barrel of Zontanis.  Hey everybody, 
watch out for HELEN KELLER, who flew up 13 points in the rankings after mashing 
AMBITIOUS GUARD like a melon.  Keep your eye on this gal.  Ya know, some days it 
doesn't pay to walk out on the sands.  MANUTE BOL was overcame by THE USEROUS 
MERCHANT and drops 2 points.  Our battling duelmaster DIRTY HOWEL has managed to hold 
the title, fending off KUNG-FU MASTER's none too subtle advances.  Better luck next 
time, NIATOLI ISLAND.  Can you believe they are paying me 10 gold to deliver this 
stuff?   
     Here is other news that is of note.   
     Death is kind of like a new puppy:  he's always around wanting to play.  (Ha 
Zontani, how's that for a wise saying?).  Here's some advice:  warriors with little 
wit and will may encounter problems on the trail to the Isle.   
     Well, that wasn't too bad; Alarond told me that the people in NIATOLI ISLAND 
have no sense of humor.  Or maybe that they were senseless.  Well, there goes another 
Spy Report.  Good luck in next week's fights.  See ya next time I'm on this 
circuit!-- The Unknown Spymaster

                        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!
