                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, Warriors of STORMCROWE.  Allow this humble servant Novgorodny Vir to 
give you a respite from the fights in the form of this Spyreport.  CALLOUS COURTNEY 
successfully staved off a grab for the roses by KUNG-FU MASTER of STORMCROWE.  Does 
STORMCROWE have no one talented enough to dethrone her?  So who's the team that's 
been walking into taverns last week and ordering milk?  Sounds like a PR stunt to me. 
     So much to report, so little time!  Everyone is famous for fifteen minutes, and 
GELIDNIA HALE is it right now.  Most challenged warrior.  Isn't NORTHERN LIGHTS 
proud!  FORSETI challenged STORMWIND!  Who says GOD OR GODDESS are just a bunch of 
wimps!  FORSETI of GOD OR GODDESS kept its wits as it subdued STORMWIND.   
     Like the wind whispering among the pines, do hearest I many disquieting rumors.  
Ask not a spymaster for counsel, for he will pontificate long after you have fallen 
into an unconscious stupor.   
     Do not think spyreporting in STORMCROWE is the highlight of my life.  More 
important duties call me.  STORMCROWE, I leave you now.  The Duelmaster has agreed to 
foot my bill at The Shadow's Fountain.  'Til next time-- Novgorodny Vir

                        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!
