                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail TROCAR!  Warriors of the arena, prepare to be praised and blamed for your 
deeds.  And let's see, ZHUGE LIANG fought LAKE PATROL and gained 17 points and 
contributed to ASIAN INVASION's 1-4-0.  TONG PAK FU has lost to HARAZIM KOREH, 
falling 11 points, while helping make ASIAN INVASION a 1-4-0 turn.  The attempts to 
dethrone the Duelmaster have failed, and ALBERT remains TROCAR's top warrior for 
another turn.  Can someone confirm a rumor for me?  I hear the top team makes their 
losing fighters do dishes at The Welcome Wench until they win.  Maybe?   
     The crowd's roar, the smell of iron and leather, mixed with sweat, what more 
could a warrior ask of life?  Well, besides that.   
     The Dark Arena is for those who cannot win, not who cannot lose with grace.  
Dignity in life or death is the warrior's creed.  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.   
     Thought for the day, a new sword shines bright, but the notched sword sings the 
sweetest.  Well, I'm burning daylight here in TROCAR and I've a long road ahead of 
me.  Happy Trails.  Until you see my quill in TROCAR again, farewell-- Alarond the 
Scribe

A Warrior-Mage.  Not much of a warrior, I wonder how good he is at magic? -- Worzeel

The Ambitious Guard is, still or again or also, depending on whether there is one
guard or many, a fool. -- Harazim Koreh

Zhuge Liang -- Somehow, I thought you'd be... bigger. -- Aline Taras

Dacre -- I thought that was the stuff inside pearl shells? -- Levandar
P.S.  You didn't look pearly.

Dian Wei -- I didn't mean to be savage.  I was afraid, and that made me over-react.
-- Desert Pearl

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!
