                                      SPY REPORT

     You elder fighters surely remember me.  The younger ones may call me Olaf 
Modeen.  I return to TRICORUS once again!  Up 'n down.  Up 'n down.  Rankings always 
change.  Up 'n down.  I think I'm gonna be...  Well, SRETSAMLEUD's 4th moved them up 
to 1-0-0 place.  What's with MANNY LEHMAN?  He actually beat DARK HORSEMEN's TURAGH, 
and walked away with 12 more points from the fight.  Major screwup at DARK HORSEMEN.  
TURAGH lost 10 points to MANNY LEHMAN.  Some new strategies, perhaps?  Maybe TURAGH 
will provide more easy wins...  VENEMOUS CONCUBINE was reminded on the sands why 
APPLE is Duelmaster.  I suppose you want to hear some rumors and dirty gossip about 
your fellow fighters?  Tough!   
     If at first you don't succeed, avoid.  That'll get you in the Spyreports.  
TRICORUS thinks DARK HORSEMEN and their 432-538-15 is too much!  If at first you 
don't succeed, give up...  Management must be dealin', as the boys at AMAZON ELITE 
ain't reelin'!  DARK HORSEMEN's mad!   
     There have been some calls to lengthen the time limit.  Do you want the fighters 
to walk away, or not?  Is it my imagination, or are fighters getting younger every 
day?  To die so young, so gloriously!   
     Who knows what the future holds for a warrior.  More fights, there's no doubt.  
The end of another Spyreport!  That's cause for celebration in my book!  I don't want 
to overstay my welcome...-- Olaf Modeen

     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!
