                                      SPY REPORT

     I can't believe the violence in XOCHITHLAN!  I still haven't told Mom I'm 
writing Spyreports.  She'd have a cow!  Well, here we go...  MVP award for PAT 
RISIDE?  CRIMINAL ELEMENT's proud of him after beating FALLON GRIMM and getting 19 
points.  Talk about yer major upsets!  CRATOR'S CAUSE's match with UDARN VOYL cost it 
a loss of 13 points!  This Duelmaster is like something else!  MS D. MEENER stopped 
TIMOR UNRED dead in his tracks!  Who was the wiseguy that said XOCHITHLAN's 
Duelmaster was paying for drinks at The Warty Toad?  Don't look at me!   
     Look, you guys stick to fighting, all right?   
     Challenges, revenges, Bloodfeuds.  All XOCHITHLAN ever talks about is fighting!  
Me, I'm more laid back.  Hey you guys, don't you think your families would like to 
hear from you?  Write!  (Or have someone write for you.)  
     Remember, blood on a purple robe may stain.  Soak it in cold water, and hand 
wash.  I gotta leave.  XOCHITHLAN is like such a dump, and you guys smell too much!  
I had a fun time, see you later-- Debby Tonte

Udarn Voyl -- Round two.  Same result.  But at laest I can parry some now. -- World
Brink

Rirorni Woman -- Go find a man.  I'm a golem and I'm not a Rirorni.  It doesn't take
any omens to see the outcome of that relationship. -- Crator's Cause

     Might be good, you never know.

Rirorni Looters -- Aren't looters the ones grabbing all the goods during a disaster?
Does that mean you're strippng yourselves before you even pick yourself up off the
sand. -- Ripple Causer and Swirls and Arcs

Rirorni Deserter -- You can run but when you wake up the next morning, you'll find my
mist has still crept in unawares. -- Misty Form

Rirorni Assassin?  Huh.  If Arenamaster Xoron had been a sport about it, I might have
gotten to assassinate the Assassin.  That would have been... fair. -- Timor Unred

I heard my opponent, the Hidden Archer, planned to hide up in the stands and shoot at
me, so I took my own steps of preparation and bri-- paid a couple of hot-dog venders
to grab him and throw him down here.  Took him by surprise. -- Quita Rosala

Pat Riside -- I'm thinking of becoming a father one of these days, so naturally I
don't want to encourage your particular problem. -- Fallon Grimm

World Brink -- Ah... what are you prophesying?  The world could be on the brink of
ANYTHING.  Peace, prosperity, and really good beer, for instance. -- Udarn Voyl
P.S.  How about an on-hand that moves?  Might be even better.

Our congratulations to Ms D. Meener. -- Jorja and the Middle Way

                        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!
