                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail JHANS!  Warriors of the arena, prepare to be praised and blamed for your 
deeds.  It seems the training can make the difference, as MEDAL OF HONOR J11 is 
pushed out of top team by STILLMATIC, who came from 2nd with a 2-1-1 this turn.  
SERPENTS HOLD stable has parlayed this turn's 2-1-0 into a 3 space move up the 
rankings.  This brings them up to 3rd place.  Good work, guys!  And let's see, BOLDIN 
fought ORVAL PAYNE and gained 16 points and contributed to SERPENTS HOLD's 2-1-0.  
JONZ KLEE has lost to BUNCH OF BULLETS, falling 2 points, while helping make MIDDLE 
WAY 17 a 1-4-0 turn.  Due to his absence and inability to defend the throne, ONE 
TRICK PONY has lost the title of Duelmaster.  And not without some honor, THE FLYEST 
now claims the title and throne of Duelmaster of JHANS.  Can someone confirm a rumor 
for me?  I hear the top team makes their losing fighters do dishes at Lucas Lounge 
until they win.  Maybe?   
     I tell you, a green quarterstaff lasts longer than a seasoned sapling.  A basher 
friend of mine assures me this is true.   
     We only live a short time in this world, so why not take a sharp blade, and 
shave it close?  This is not good to see.  Why pray tell has DA1 been sent to the 
Dark Arena by MEDAL OF HONOR J11?  And why with a 2-0-0 record??  GORAN KOBLINZ has 
departed JHANS, leaving MIDDLE WAY 17 without their 15-28-0 warrior.  Question, just 
what was his team doing at the taverns last night?  STILLMATIC, with any luck MIDDLE 
WAY 17 will successfully bloodfeud THE FLYEST for killing such a warrior as GORAN 
KOBLINZ.  Have a little decency, will ya?  A brave warrior does not carry a red 
shield, he has nothing to cover or hide when the fight is over.  Consider well.   
     I like this place, JHANS, the taverns have old wine, and young serving girls.  
Who could ask for more?  It's been nice chatting with you, until we meet again, keep 
your swords sharp and your hammers heavy.  Until the sun next rises and my pen sets 
to paper-- Alarond the Scribe

Two-three, and... Dallas was "overpowered" by the Embezzling Scribe?  Say it isn't
so!  That's just incredibly embarrassing. -- Jonz Klee, for the rest of the Middle

note it.  Bet he can't do it again!

immediately.  Managers may register their warriors' races and/or favorite sayings by 
simply writing them on a separate piece of paper and submitting them to the Commission.

Our next winter FTF will be held in Tempe, Arizona, January 17-19, 2014.  It will be 
held at the Embassy Suites Hotel in Tempe, Arizona (480-897-7444), the same hotel as 
last year by popular request.  Room rates are $145.00 per night, 1-2 occupancy, which 
includes full cooked breakfast, complimentary manager's reception, free airport 
shuttle, free parking and free high speed internet.  There's a fitness center, 
jacuzzi, and pool.  The rooms are blocked--code RSI--please make your reservation by 
December 15 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!
