                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly JHANS games.  NICOLE KIDMAN caught the eye of many in 
the gladiatorial commission as she skillfully bested ABALOND EGRAN and was awarded 23 
points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, KELLY BUNDY put down 
DEETY HINCH, causing her to lose 2 points of recognition in the process.  Although 
MORNGRIM THORTH made a valiant effort, it did not suffice to topple the reign of 
victorious EVA MENDES.  No confirmation, but my sources claim that the top team has 
gained their position using magical aids.  Charmed weapons perhaps?   
     But come now, let us look deeper into the maze of contention and crossed blades 
that is city JHANS.  My inside sources tell me that the team to beat in JHANS these 
days is GIRLS X3.  At least, most blades in town are looking to avoid them.  Methinks 
more than a few here could name the guild it was that spent the better part of last 
week avoiding GIRLS X3.  Indeed it was GIRLS GIRLS GIRLS.   
     Vendettas.  Bloodied blades and broken spears.  Indeed the city has seen more 
than its fair share of red in recent times.  Some say a warrior is judged by the way 
he bears arms.  One thing is sure, better a dagger in hand then a sword on the belt!  
     A thought before I go.  Each warrior practices one style, but must not the wise 
manager learn the secrets of them all?  More than a sharp eye must I keep, indeed a 
stout pair of legs must I keep as well!  The endless paths of Alastari await me!  
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

Danette Rogers -- Would you care to come try some of my choicest wines?  I have quite
a good cellar, you know, with a lamp and a couch as well as the wine racks. --
Abalond Egran

Kelly Bundy -- I can see why, if it became necessary to create you with a gender,
your manager or manufacturer picked "female."  After all, why settle for second best?
But what I do NOT see is why you needed that win.  You need a loss more than a win,
since you don't have one.  And besides, it's so embarrassing.  I hope you have
tourney fights. -- Ellirin Imbray

This Cult Member is a low and disgusting person.  I would have killed him, but the
arenamistress stepped in too soon. -- Deety Hinch

The Persistent Beggar is a joke, isn't he?  I kept expecting the arena staff to break
out laughing, but I suppose that would have spoiled the joke.  And they're probably
used to seeing him bumbling around. -- Eddie Incher

Alyssa Milano -- You're a pretty little thing and no mistake!  Would you like to come
see my illuminated manuscripts? -- Gorm Hollis

                          SUMMER FACE-TO-FACE IN CLEVELAND!

Our summer FTF will be an eastern one this time, located in Cleveland, Ohio  on July 
17-19, 2009.  It will be held at the Holiday Inn in Strongsville, OH, at 15471 
Royalton Rd (440-238-8800).  Rooms are only $95.00 per night, 1-2 occupancy.  

There is a free shuttle from the airport, free parking, and free high-speed wireless 
internet in all guestrooms ($3/day in public space).  The hotel has an indoor pool, 
pool table, and hockey, and a fitness center.   The hotel is located 1/2 mile from the 
largest mall in Northeast Ohio, with indoor minigolf and pottery painting, and right 
next door to Iceland Arena, which offers open skate and skate rental.  They also have 
four bikes on property available for checkout, as the Metro parks are next door as 
well.  The rooms are blocked--ask for the "Reality Simulations" room block.  There are 
many restaurants and nightspots nearby and at the Mall, as well as a cafe in the 
hotel.  

The tournament information sheet will be out imminently.  We hope you're all looking 
forward to the tournament and that we will see you there!
