                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Ribsplitter, I say to you Ha, and also Ho Ho!
     To be graduated, to be Invited to the Isle, is sooo good!  I love it.

                             Lord Protector Tiro Cococo

                                      SPY REPORT

     Ready for some action-packed adventure, some thrills, chills and spills?  Well 
fergit it, cause this is the Spyreport for VEASTIAN.  MVP award for WILLBREAKER?  
WIDOWMAKERS' proud of it after beating RAPTURE and getting 16 points.  Talk about yer 
major upsets!  REGRET's match with DURCIEF cost him a loss of 12 points!  This 
Duelmaster is like something else!  TIRO COCOCO stopped RIBSPLITTER dead in his 
tracks!  Is the Duelmaster really being a real snob to his teammates?  Don't ask me!  
     I gotta admit I haven't been in "deep con caves" with any spies.  Really, I just 
wing this stuff.   
     What does a fighter fight for?  I mean, the crowds don't give a hoot if someone 
gets killed.  Not after four more fights.  What if they had a fight and nobody showed 
up?  I'd be out of a job, that's what!!!   
     Remember, blood on a purple robe may stain.  Soak it in cold water, and hand 
wash.  I gotta leave.  VEASTIAN is like such a dump, and you guys smell too much!  
Remember you guys, ease up sometimes!  Chill out!  Later, Debby Tonte

Dismay -- There's people going around handing out sheet music, did you know that?
And I ended up with a sheet of it, but it was too short to fit on my bed, so I had to
read it instead.  And it says right here, "Let nothing you Dismay."  Kinda weird
phrasing, but I figured it meant I had to win this one.  So I did. -- Stiltz

It says here that the Convicted Assassin's Harkeny.  But I bet he's really
Convincian, but he dyed his hair red.  I mean, everyone KNOWS that the Andorians are
assassins, right? -- Tiro Cuckoo

I don't think we should allow a Dangerous Criminal to get that tall.  He should be
forced to hunch down.  He'd look more humble that way, which would be a Good Thing.
This one is arrogant. -- Vahnzur

Durcief -- I've never heard of you, but I'm SURE you're up to no good. -- Kelroth
P.S.  You know how it is with people giving out advice all the time.  They told me I
had to "just say no" to you, and I tried, I really did.  Over and over again.  Ouch.

     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!
