                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
TRICORUS brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Later days, DARK HORSEMEN, since 
AMAZON ELITE took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  AMAZON ELITE 
turned their 2-0-0 turn into a 1st place rank in the listings this turn.  Any better 
than this, and you get put on hit lists.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed to 
see FROG BELLY LINT win a fight and gain 18 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, HARGERD beat 
NERDS and NERDS lost 9 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  Due to absence, and 
inability to defend the throne, HELPER has lost the Title of Duelmaster.  Start 
setting that alarm earlier!  And it's out with the old, in with the new, as ATOMIC 
PUNK 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.  
What's the big D?  DARK HORSEMEN was the most avoided team?  Bunch of lily livered... 
grumble... mumble... curse...  And who led the way in this mass act of cowardice?  
Let's see, well, whatcha know?  It was AMAZON ELITE.  Ha ha ha ha!  MOONDARK was 
challenged more times this turn than the Duelmaster.  Now was the DM insulted or 
feared?  Heh, heh.  Now here's guts and stupidity all rolled into one, ATOMIC PUNK 
challenged up 32 to take on MOONDARK of DARK HORSEMEN.  And The Silver Chalice has 
banned MOONDARK from service until next turn for losing to ATOMIC PUNK and giving him 
32 points in the process!  Ha!   
     Some people like volunteer work in the hospitals.  I volunteer for TRICORUS' 
morgue.  More variety.  Titanium shields and bamboo daggers, guess what brave team is 
developing these kinds of weapons?   
     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.  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

In the interest of preserving our natural resources and preventing managerial writer's 
cramp, census forms will be provided for warriors by request only, effective 
immediately.  Managers may register their warriors' races and/or favorite sayings by 
simply writing them on a separate piece of paper and submitting them to the Commission.  
For any questions, please contact the Gladiatorial Commission. 

                        WINTER FACE-TO-FACE IN SUNNY ARIZONA!

Our next winter FTF will be held in Tempe, Arizona, January 17-19, 2014.  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 $145.00 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--code RSI--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!
