                                      SPY REPORT

     Like the magnificent Sun, rising upon the Dawn and exiling the Night for a Day, 
I, Novgorodny Vir, return once again!  Nothing is certain in CLIFFHOME, with changing 
loyalties, changing Duelmasters.  Write this down:  new top team--JINDA-BAN.  What's 
a move up by 3 you ask?  (alright, maybe you didn't ask)  Cause for celebration, 
according to JINDA-BAN.  JINDA-BAN had cause to celebrate, after LOGRANAL MAUR got 15 
points by beating FRATSFA SLAVE.  A certain someone should cut down on the drinking 
and practice more, after losing 3 points to KEVSILESSA KIRO.  (Discrete enough, 
BASKERVILLE PIG?) What can be a greater victory?  LION'S MANE has taken hers place as 
the top, as CLIFFHOME's new Duelmaster.  Word has it one team in CLIFFHOME is taking 
speech lessons to try to bore their opponent to death.  I'll bet it works.   
     My mother wished me to avoid conflict, and seek the gentle trade of Spyreporter. 
But warriors aren't supposed to avoid fights!   
     Is there life after death?  Pragmatics (and warriors) know there is death after 
life!  Ask not for whom the sword slashes; it slashes for thee.   
     Leave me now, you base fools!  As the seasons change, and the creatures of the 
wild change also, so do I feel a yearning to leave this place.  Do not despair!  I 
shall return!-- Novgorodny Vir

Korgoth -- Of course I'm ranked higher.  Absolute minimum ranking would do that:  one
point for every loss and three for every win.  You've got a ways to go to catch up
with that. -- Morindel Salm 

That Cow is a trampler.  It stepped on me and knocked me down and then stepped on me
AGAIN. -- Kvesilessa Kiro
P.S.  No point addressing it directly, it's a cow. 

Where's what's-her-name, Delilah, to sheer this Lion's Mane? -- Morindel Salm 

Korgoth -- Cheese louise, guy!  How many tourney fights do you have?  I know it's got
to be at least... eleven?  Ouch. -- Vonsitan Korv 

It's unreasonable to expect me to fight Dangerous Criminals.  That's a job for the
City Watch. -- Logranal Maur 

Stupid Beggar. -- Trokessa Salm

                        WINTER FACE-TO-FACE IN SUNNY ARIZONA!

Our next winter FTF will be held in Tempe, Arizona, January 13-15, 2012.  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 $134.00 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--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!
