                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, KATI-TEI?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Later days, LADY OF THE MOON, since 
WANDERERS took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  Of course, we're 
all terribly impressed to see THISTLEDOWN win a fight and gain 20 points, terribly.  
Due to absence, and inability to defend the throne, HECATE has lost the Title of 
Duelmaster.  Start setting that alarm earlier!  And it's out with the old, in with 
the new, as RAMBLING ROSE takes the Title and last week's bar tab from the old 
Duelmaster.  Heh, heh.  Kickbacks and bribes, kickbacks and bribes, how else do you 
think some of these guys win their fights?  Skill?  Ha!   
     He who fights and runs away will live to fight another day, the coward.  
WANDERERS, I suppose you'll be glad to know you were this turn's most avoided team.  
Care to know who is the most afraid of you?  And who led the way in this mass act of 
cowardice?  Let's see, well, whatcha know?  It was HELL FROZEN OVER.  Ha ha ha ha!  I 
guess I can give a little credit to FLYING PIG of HELL FROZEN OVER for challenging up 
by 20 to WINGS IN SUNLIGHT.  FLYING PIG won to get 59 points of recognition.   
     Ah, now we come to my favorite part, where we see all the guys who are dead and 
gone, and get to see if their team cared.  We're all going to die in the end, so why 
worry if the fate catches up with you sooner that later?   
     I was about to buy a new quill pen the other day, but some fighter took it for 
an epee.  Forgive me for writing with a dagger.  Phlllt!  Just had to do that before 
I leave the fine city of KATI-TEI.  I feel much better now.  I see the crowds are 
getting restless, I must leave now-- Snide Clemens

One-four, uninspiring.  And the only win was over a standby.  The Honest Merchant is
at such a handicap, all of the others being enthusiastically not honest.  Well, it's
his choice. -- Wings in Sunlight, team winner and thus Personal Writer

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

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!
