                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, Warriors of VEASTIAN.  Allow this humble servant Novgorodny Vir to 
give you a respite from the fights in the form of this Spyreport.  The boys at THE 
FAMILY left the arena dejected, after being kicked out of the top spot by HELL'S 
PAWNS.  Good show!  Practice pays for DAPHNE CAMISADO, who pummelled TIRO COCOCO, to 
pocket 16 points.  TIRO COCOCO certainly had a baffled expression on his face, after 
losing to DAPHNE CAMISADO and losing 12 points in the process!  CARLINE successfully 
staved off a grab for the roses by VETERAN MERCENARY of VEASTIAN.  Does VEASTIAN have 
no one talented enough to dethrone her?  Word has it one team in VEASTIAN is using 
psychics to predict wins.  They lead a charmed life!   
     A Zenmaster once told me, 'Does not the spinning wheel turn?  And do not the 
little birds cry out?'  Any ideas?  Is it charming personality?  Conversational 
abilities?  Good oral hygiene?  Whatever it is, STILTZ is the most challenged 
warrior.   
     Is there life after death?  Pragmatics (and warriors) know there is death after 
life!  Questions are being raised about the disposing of severed body parts in the 
arena.  A certain tavern in VEASTIAN would I avoid!   
     All good things must come to an end.  As if buffeted by forces of nature beyond 
my control, I must take my leave of this place.  Can anything compare to the pleasure 
of writing Spyreports for VEASTIAN?  On that giddy note I take my leave-- Novgorodny 
Vir

Daphne Camisado -- My, you are a FINE figure of a woman!  Truly splendid!  Are you
busy tonight?  Care to join me for dinner, maybe a little dancing afterward? --
Stiltz, smitten

Despair -- And a hearty congratulations to you at the end of this, your last regular-
arena fight.  I am glad to have survived the experience, and the skills are
wonderful.  Travel in good heart and show 'em what's what on the Isle. -- Tiro Cococo

Well...I suppose there's a certain nostalgia in fighting the Veteran Mercenary, but
there isn't much EXCITEMENT.  Oh, well. -- Carline

Bloodletter -- (wincing)  You take your name seriously, don't you?  Ouch. -- Vahnzur

Gutspiller -- Not mine, if *I* have anything to say about it. -- Tiro Cuckoo

Valerian

Jorja -- Yup, we're back for awhile.  Trying to get Daphne and Ethon to graduate.
Hopefully I'll get some decent replacements for then.  Lady Mantle and Red Valerian
are running out of time.  I may have to DA them. -- Noachian, mgr. Termagant Votary

     Our next Winter Face-to-Face will be held on Martin Luther King weekend, Friday 
through Sunday, 14-16 January 2005, at the Embassy Suites in Tempe, Arizona (4400 S 
Rural Rd--this is the same hotel as last year).  Room rates are $139.00 per night, 
1-4 occupancy, which includes breakfast.  The rooms are blocked.  The reservations 
number is 480-897-7444; tell them you're with the "Reality Simulations Face to Face 
Convention" block.  Our room block will be released in mid-December, so please make 
sure you reserve your room before then! 
     Room rates include a full cooked-to-order breakfast and a complimentary two-hour 
manager's reception.  There is a free shuttle to the airport, as well as free parking.  
The hotel is located down the freeway in Tempe.  All rooms have high speed internet 
(for an extra charge).  There is a fitness center, jacuzzi, and pool, and of course a 
bar and Mexican restaurant inside the hotel.  And there's Denny's right across the 
street.  Look for transportation info in the tournament information sheet.
     The tournament information sheet/strategy sheet should be out sometime in late 
November/early December. 
     If you haven't been to a Face-to-Face before, you're overdue.  If you have, 
you'll be back.  Don't miss this one, it'll be a blast!  See you there!
