                                      SPY REPORT

     The sages err'd not in their foretelling of a god descending upon FRATSFA, for 
I, Novgorodny Vir, have returned!  Nothing is certain in FRATSFA, with changing 
loyalties, changing Duelmasters.  Write this down:  new top team--MIDDLE WAY 8.  OHIO 
had cause to celebrate, after AKRON got 26 points by beating RENDOR QUIL.  MAYHEM 
certainly had a baffled expression on his face, after losing to LENA KORIL and losing 
10 points in the process!  MUTILATE found out that FRATSFA isn't a democracy.  You've 
gotta be the best to be Duelmaster here!  So who's the team that's been walking into 
taverns last week and ordering milk?  Sounds like a PR stunt to me.   
     A Zenmaster once told me, 'Does not the spinning wheel turn?  And do not the 
little birds cry out?'  Any ideas?  To quell some nasty rumors, the guys in OTTO'S 
PARTS are not carrying any incurable diseases.  No need to avoid 'em.  As a woman of 
good breeding scorns the "warriors" of ASSASSIN NATION, so did that sorry team shy 
from OTTO'S PARTS Is it charming personality?  Conversational abilities?  Good oral 
hygiene?  Whatever it is, TOLEDO is the most challenged warrior.   
     The moving sword slashes, and having slashed, moves on...  Never one to advocate 
diplomacy and restraint, I was pleased to see MIDDLE WAY 8 retaliate against ASSASSIN 
NATION in bloodfeud!  Questions are being raised about the disposing of severed body 
parts in the arena.  A certain tavern in FRATSFA would I avoid!   
     Do not think spyreporting in FRATSFA is the highlight of my life.  My fingers 
tire and I fear my incessant prattling may cause unfair judgement upon my impeccable 
character.  Do not despair!  I shall return!-- Novgorodny Vir

Brain Tumor -- Gods, you're a sinister one!  The way you just...crept up on me, that
makes my blood run cold. -- Lena Koril
P.S.  Very disturbing feeling, cold blood.

Murray -- I think your problem must be your height.  You're too tall for a Dwarf, and
then you keep crouching down so as to look properly Dwarf-like, and you end up
stepping on your beard.  Just stand tall, pretend you're a short Shew or something.
-- Rendor Quil

Severity -- But I didn't FEEL like having a severe day, so....  (shrug)  So I was
severe with YOU, instead.  They do say that what goes around comes around, which is
rather odd when you think about it carefully, but still, who knows? -- Tealin Sali

I don't give to beggars, however polite they are.  They don't really MEAN it when
they hold up those signs that say "will fight for food."  They just want you to give
them money.  Ha!  I surprised THAT one! -- Salina Rees

Kiwitahi -- Odd name.  Does it mean something?  Er, something you can mention in
public? -- Norvan Patt
P.S.  Did *I* mention that I really, really admire tall, slim blondes?

Collapsed Lung -- But I skipped breakfast.  That was a bad mistake. -- Tealin Sali

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:
     Anthony Wells

     Stanton, MI  48888
or by personal ads in DM 25.

                                FACE-TO-FACE XXXIV

     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,
