                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, VEASTIAN?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed 
to see KENSELJO win a fight and gain 21 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, KENSELJO beat 
ALVERNON STRONGAXE and ALVERNON STRONGAXE lost 20 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  
Our Duelmaster has lost, folks, lost to KUNG-FU MASTER, BUT VAISTINIE is still the 
Duelmaster because she has the most recognition points!  The Dripping Blade, humph!  
I've tasted better ale at mortuaries.  Where do they get this stuff?  From VEASTIAN's 
trash dumps?   
     My mother always told me, 'If you don't have anything nice to say, start 
talking.' I loved that woman.   
     Death and Taxes.  The less death I see, the more it taxes my patience.  Let's 
see if anyone's dead or dying.  A big yahoo goes out to KENSELJO this turn, for 
revenging THE FAMILY's bloodfeud against WARRIORS OF STEEL's warrior ALVERNON 
STRONGAXE.  Heh, heh, heh.  Titanium shields and bamboo daggers, guess what brave 
team is developing these kinds of weapons?   
     There's got to be a better place in VEASTIAN to get a drink than The Dripping 
Blade!  Any suggestions?  Well, I've had enough of this drivel, and I'm sure you have 
too.  Off like a dirty shirt of padded leather.  Glad to see the back of this place-- 
Snide Clemens

                        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!
