                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, friends and fiends, welcome to your friendly neighborhood spyreport.  
I doubt TRICORUS will ever be the same.  Now keep the taverns open late tonight, for 
there are sorrows to drown for DARK HORSEMEN, whose 1-4-0 this turn dropped them by 4 
into 6th.  THE FINAL FRONTIER stable has parlayed this turn's 2-3-0 into a 3 space 
move up the rankings.  This brings them up to 2nd place.  Good work, guys!  On their 
very first turn, XCOM CHARLIE had a 4-0-0, and with this kind of luck or skill, 
should do well.  Welcome to TRICORUS.  And let's see, CHOPS fought EMBEZZLING SCRIBE 
and gained 21 points and contributed to XCOM CHARLIE's 4-0-0.  LEFT EARACHE has lost 
to SANTA, falling 13 points, while helping make PHISH a 0-2-0 turn.  This week's 
Duelmaster bout was between HARGERD and our Duelmaster FROG BELLY LINT, making a 
challenge.  The attempts to dethrone the Duelmaster have failed, and FROG BELLY LINT 
remains TRICORUS' top warrior for another turn.  By the way, was that our Duelmaster 
that I saw last night, cramped under the table at The Silver Chalice?   
     I tell you, a green quarterstaff lasts longer than a seasoned sapling.  A basher 
friend of mine assures me this is true.  VENTURE BROS. has cause to stand tall, as 
they were TRICORUS' most avoided team.  A smart manager knows this is a team to beat. 
And guess who avoided VENTURE BROS. stable the most?  Believe it or not, it was 
BATTLE FROGS 03-13.  Anyone surprised?  The most challenged warrior this turn was 
DECEIVERS' warrior BEER BELLY.  More fighters challenged him than challenged the 
Duelmaster!  In a brave attempt, DALE BOZZIO from CHUCK'S PINUPS challenged up 18 
points to fight MORNING DEW from the DARK HORSEMEN stable.  DALE BOZZIO perhaps got 
hers just desserts, seeing as she beat MORNING DEW and ended up with 32 recognition 
points.   
     A coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave man only once.  Wise men know this to 
be true.  We'd like to remind certain teams not to rob the graves of their enemies.  
You know who you are; and it's considered rude.   
     I like this place, TRICORUS, the taverns have old wine, and young serving girls. 
Who could ask for more?  Always good to rest in TRICORUS, but never good to wear out 
my welcome.  Look for me in future turns.  Until the sun next rises and my pen sets 
to paper-- Alarond the Scribe

Odo was one of the most popular warriors last turn?  Then why wasn't there a better
turn out for his funeral? -- Coach

3-2 with 2 D.A.s...cool, we are on the move. -- TFF

Twelve dead!  The city will perish twice over.  Or maybe perish and be reborn in
consecutive instants.  Either way, get out in the middle of a field and lie down,
preferably with a pillow.  Best way to ride out an earthquake or whatever it is. --
Hargerd

Three-two and a death.  Now the Frog has his belly lint in ringlets.  Gods, how,
well, how disgusting.  Unless, I suppose, you're another Frog.  Somebody should have
told Shadow Rose that a Molotov Cocktail is not something to drink.  I guess we all
thought she just knew. -- Hargerd

Joan Jett -- You're probably insane, but then, you're a gladiator.  And I didn't mind
the easy win. -- Morning Dew

3 Toed Toad -- Well, you're a Convincian toad, which explains a lot. -- Klaralla
P.S.  Not that you can help that, of course.

Beer Belly -- So, are you saying that is NOT a beer belly?  You've actually got a
goose under your shirt? -- One Eye Dark

                        WINTER FACE-TO-FACE IN SUNNY ARIZONA!

Our next winter FTF will be held in Tempe, Arizona, January 16-18, 2015.  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 $149.00 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 reservations now if you plan to go.  This is prime season for 
Phoenix, and this year will be crazy:  the Superbowl, Phoenix Open, auto auction, PF 
Chang's Marathon, and more are all during that time.  The hotel will be filling up 
quickly and I won't be able to add rooms to the block after they are full.  So please 
book your room now -- if you can't make it you can cancel your reservation, but we 
hope you do!

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!
