                             Notes from the arena champ.

     I've been taking a course in dog grooming, by way of learning a day job, you
know, so the Lion's Mane was no problem for me.  I sheared him good.

                                  Kevsilessa Kiro

                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of CLIFFHOME!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp 
Eyes, Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  THE COWS AFOOT caught the eye of 
many in the gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested MORINDEL SALM and was 
awarded 12 points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, CONVICTED 
ASSASSIN put down LION'S MANE, causing her to lose 17 points of recognition in the 
process.  Although FAITH made a valiant effort, it did not suffice to topple the 
reign of victorious KEVSILESSA KIRO.  Would you believe that over half of the old 
women in CLIFFHOME seem to feel that they could fight better than you gladiators?   
     Many and various are the arts of battle.  In CLIFFHOME "art" is a word that has 
long since passed from the language!   
     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!  
     If it were not for my skills as a spy I would have been mugged three times 
already in CLIFFHOME.  Nice atmosphere you have here!  Sadly warriors, now longer can 
I keep thy company nor savor the ale of thy fine city.  Depart I must and soon!  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

Another five-oh turn!  Two wins over Sherlock's rangers, and three over standbys.  We

                        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 (480-897-7444), 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!
