                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly JHANS games.  Former top team PORN IN A BARN was 
unseated this week as DEVIATION moved up from 4th ranking to take the top spot with a 
3-2-0 record for the round.  Fortune did not smile upon 5440 OR FIGHT! this time out 
who this turn suffered a fall into 7th position in the wake of a 0-3-0 round.  
Warriors--remember that glory waits always around the corner!  Witness how this week 
DEVIATION went 3-2-0 to move up 3 in the rankings.  SILVERBLEED caught the eye of 
many in the gladiatorial commission as she skillfully bested DESTROY and was awarded 
23 points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, SILVERBLEED put 
down DESTROY, causing him to lose 19 points of recognition in the process.  Although 
'WERD made a valiant effort, it did not suffice to topple the reign of victorious 
ALOYSIUS THE BEAR.  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.  I saw one fighter that warriors avoided when this week's 
challenge seeking began.  PORN IN A BARN is feared.  This much I can say.  Methinks 
more than a few here could name the guild it was that spent the better part of last 
week avoiding PORN IN A BARN.  Indeed it was DEVIATION.  Mighty fighters cannot but 
expect competition from those below.  KERN take warning!  You have more than a few 
enemies in JHANS.   
     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

                 NEW TEAMS IN THE TEMPORARY TOURNAMENT ARENA (DM 85)

Please note that all new teams created at the Face-to-Face were temporarily placed in 
a temporary Tournament Arena, DM 85.  If you requested that your team be placed in a 
specific arena, it has already transferred to that arena.  Effective immediately, any 
teams placed in DM 85 and not transferred out to another arena, will be automatically 
deleted a month after the tournament.  If you have questions about any of your teams, 
please contact Customer Service. -- RSI 

                        WINTER FACE-TO-FACE IN SUNNY ARIZONA!

Our next winter FTF will be held in Tempe, Arizona, January 16-18, 2015.  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 $149.00 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 reservations now if you plan to go.  This is prime season for 
Phoenix, and this year will be crazy:  the Superbowl, Phoenix Open, auto auction, PF 
Chang's Marathon, and more are all during that time.  The hotel will be filling up 
quickly and I won't be able to add rooms to the block after they are full.  So please 
book your room now -- if you can't make it you can cancel your reservation, but we 
hope you do!

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!
