                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, TRICORUS?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed 
to see HARZOGH win a fight and gain 7 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, CAPTURED ORC beat 
DELANGE and DELANGE lost 8 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  And it's out with the 
old, in with the new, as SPIDER-MAN takes the Title and last week's bar tab from the 
old Duelmaster.  Heh, heh.  Kickbacks and bribes, kickbacks and bribes, how else do 
you think some of these guys win their fights?  Skill?  Ha!   
     Well, let's take a look at some more misdeeds of you miserable sword-boys.   
     Some people like volunteer work in the hospitals.  I volunteer for TRICORUS' 
morgue.  More variety.  We're all going to die in the end, so why worry if the fate 
catches up with you sooner that later?   
     I was about to buy a new quill pen the other day, but some fighter took it for 
an epee.  Forgive me for writing with a dagger.  Phlllt!  Just had to do that before 
I leave the fine city of TRICORUS.  I feel much better now.  Paste this one in your 
scrapbooks, you'll need the kindling come this winter-- Snide Clemens

My family and I are moving from Colorado to Northern Virginia.  I may miss a couple
of turns but I'll be back.  Also, as I'll be on the East Coast rather than the West
Coast I will attend the Summer FTF in 2005, I will NOT attend the Winter FTF in
Phoenix.  I hope to see some of you next year and meet those I've not seen in
Phoenix. -- Shocking Toad
P.S.  I vote for a Washington D.C. Summer FTF in 2005.

I hate Dangerous Criminals.  They're one standby I just can't seem to beat.  It's so
embarrassing.  I'd avoid them if I could. -- Delange

Fortunately, the Ambitious Guard is almost a pushover. -- Turagh

I wouldn't have said that. -- Kolvegh

Well, the Fratsfa Slave is definitely a pushover. -- Harzogh

No active initiates at all, and only five fights?  Apple's title match was the only
one between managed warriors.  Is this arena asking to be closed, or what? -- Nick,
Dark Horsemen

20 September 2004
Azereth has returned!  I am the manager for Scarlet Blades in DM 25.  I was a member
of the Crimson Alliance and the Crimson Brotherhood (which was composed of former CA
members).  I've been out of the game for many (at least 5) years.  I would like to
hear from anyone who remembers me, as well as any Alliance that is seeking to add
experienced managers to their roster.  Contact me at:

or by personal ads in DM 25.

     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

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

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!
