                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Oh, heck, the Commission has me down as a golem.  I'd forgotten that, because,
you know, I am NOT a golem.  My mother would have mentioned it.  I think it's
jealousy, myself--the clerks see that I'm superior, so they sneer and mark me as a
golem.
     That was invigorating, Hu Yan Zhuo.  We must have sounded like an anvil chorus,
but what the heck.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Much has changed in THE GREENHOUSE since last I was here.  Never fear, Olaf 
Modeen adapts to many situations, as do all successful fighters.  Bein' on top is 
great while it lasts, WAH CHING.  But how many friends do you have now?  I'm sure THE 
GREENHOUSE is excited about ZOUM LA BOUSE, the new Duelmaster from BLOOD AND GUTS!.  
(remember?)  But when you've seen as many as I have...  Advice to fighters with a 1 
will--give up fighting!   
     Speaking of cowardly avoiders and unfair challenges...  How well I know the 
feeling of being in the most avoided team!  Don't fall out of practive, DRAGONS GUARD 
II!  The bums at BLOOD AND GUTS! couldn't face the challenges from DRAGONS GUARD II!  
No excuse for that!  How well I know the feeling of being the most challenged 
warrior, URSILA RILVAR!  Don't make idle boasts, they may come back to haunt you.  
WEI YAN didn't quite know what to make of a challenge he received from VELVET ROSE of 
JADE WARRIORS, who is 19 points below him.  VELVET ROSE perhaps got hers just 
desserts, seeing as she defeated WEI YAN and ended up with 21 recognition points.   
     Warriors of THE GREENHOUSE unite.  You have only your games to lose!  Many a 
warrior has met his fate in a hungover stupor.  You young rapscallions, take note!   
     Many other cities have retirement homes for aged warriors.  Any plans here?  The 
end of another Spyreport!  That's cause for celebration in my book!  I don't want to 
overstay my welcome...-- Olaf Modeen

P.S.  Looks like we need to do some recruiting.  Only three of us left!

Zheng Tian Shou -- I feel like a new broom, sweeping clean.  Which is an illusion,
I'm not a NEW broom at all, as you can see by my record.  I 'spect you'll be ready
for me next time we met, hmm? -- Salinda Rees

Velvet Rose -- Well, um, you already had a win, and I didn't, so I needed it more? --

                        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!
