                                      SPY REPORT

     I can't believe the violence in TRICORUS!  I still haven't told Mom I'm writing 
Spyreports.  She'd have a cow!  Well, here we go...  MVP award for MARGANAD?  DARK 
HORSEMEN's proud of him after beating WHO and getting 16 points.  Talk about yer 
major upsets!  BEFORE SUNRISE's match with SGT. HATRED cost her a loss of 8 points!  
This Duelmaster is like something else!  TACK TACK stopped GALDOR O'HARE dead in his 
tracks!  Is the Duelmaster really being a real snob to his teammates?  Don't ask me!  
     AAARRGH!!!  I HATE SPYREPORTING!!!  Sorry.  I just had to say it.   
     Challenges, revenges, Bloodfeuds.  All TRICORUS ever talks about is fighting!  
Me, I'm more laid back.  Hey you guys, don't you think your families would like to 
hear from you?  Write!  (Or have someone write for you.)  
     I really didn't, you know, study when I was a kid.  Who would've guessed I'd be 
a famous Spyreporter?  I gotta leave.  TRICORUS is like such a dump, and you guys 
smell too much!  Remember you guys, ease up sometimes!  Chill out!  Later, Debby 
Tonte

Answer of the Week:  Start the caffeine earlier in the day.

We congratulate Who, identity unconfirmed. -- Jorja and the Dark Horsemen

Who -- NOW I learn to defeat you, when you're LEAVING.  Figures. -- Galdor O'Hare

Why -- Why?  Now we both have level records, which is monumentally annoying. --
Marganad

The Userous Merchant comes with his own question:  How much?  I don't care for the
experience. -- Windsong

I Drank What? -- Doesn't matter, we'll pump your stomach regardless. -- Before
Sunrise

For a town reputedly full of criminals, the crowd was amazingly pleased to see the
Convicted Thief get beat up.  Maybe it was because he was so stupid as to get caught
and convicted. -- Salmgedan

                        WINTER FACE-TO-FACE IN SUNNY ARIZONA!

Our next winter FTF will be held in Tempe, Arizona, January 13-15, 2012.  It will be 
held at the Embassy Suites Hotel in Tempe, Arizona (480-897-7444), the same hotel as 
last year by popular request.  Room rates are $134.00 per night, 1-2 occupancy, which 
includes full cooked breakfast, complimentary manager's reception, 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 15 
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!
