                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     No one asked me if I *wanted* to graduate.  Well, I suppose I do, since it means
I can retire.

                                   Ellirin Imbray

P.S.  The war flail totally does not appeal to me.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of JHANS!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp Eyes, 
Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  IRBEN JESSIT caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested THE USEROUS MERCHANT and was awarded 
17 points in recognition.  Although JAHGG GRIMEYE made a valiant effort, it did not 
suffice to topple the reign of victorious ELLIRIN IMBRAY.  Informants "close" to the 
city champion have told me that he never fights without pantyhose on beneath his 
armor.  Watch out!   
     Many and various are the arts of battle.  In JHANS "art" is a word that has long 
since passed from the language!  My inside sources tell me that the team to beat in 
JHANS these days is BABES.  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 BABES.  Indeed it was THE FALLEN ANGELS.   
     Vendettas.  Bloodied blades and broken spears.  Indeed the city has seen more 
than its fair share of red in recent times.  Dark alleys may hide both secrets and 
assassins.  In the arena there is only the brightness of steel.  Keep vigil always!   
     If it were not for my skills as a spy I would have been mugged three times 
already in JHANS.  Nice atmosphere you have here!  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 we meet again, remember:  a turtle walks slow, hides head in a shell, and 
harms no one; a lion runs to slay its prey.-- Zontani Sharp Eyes

                        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!
