                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly TROCAR games.  Former top team USELESS TOOLS was 
unseated this week as TRADERS OF TROCAR moved up from 2nd ranking to take the top 
spot with a 4-1-0 record for the round.  Did only my eyes note the 4-1-0 record which 
TRADERS OF TROCAR managed to post this round?  I don't doubt that such a record will 
draw challengers!  DALAN HILLEI caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial commission 
as he skillfully bested YAHOO WAHOO and was awarded 16 points in recognition.  In one 
of the week's more notable duels, KORILL SAI put down CHERRY PICKER, causing it to 
lose 10 points of recognition in the process.  Due to his absence and inability to 
defend the throne, INNUK SHUK has lost the title of Duelmaster.  This time victory 
fell to the grasp of the usurper.  All hail DYSLEXIC EDITOR, Duelmaster of TROCAR!  
Heed this!  A seer has warned that if exactly 6 die in duels this week, the whole 
city shall perish!  Just remember...5 or 7!   
     I have been in deep conclave with my spies who watched all that has recently 
transpired.  Indeed there is much I would report.  I saw one fighter that warriors 
avoided when this week's challenge seeking began.  ASIAN INVASION is feared.  This 
much I can say.  Methinks more than a few here could name the guild it was that spent 
the better part of last week avoiding ASIAN INVASION.  Indeed it was USELESS TOOLS.   
     Is not Death a warrior's foremost adviser?   Warriors, may this counselor stand 
ready at your right hand forever!  Some say a warrior is judged by the way he bears 
arms.  One thing is sure, better a dagger in hand then a sword on the belt!   
     The girls are as pretty in TROCAR as ever I remembered them....and the fighters 
as ugly!  Don't let your reputation slip!  Sadly warriors, now longer can I keep thy 
company nor savor the ale of thy fine city.  Depart I must and soon!  Till next we 
meet remember - the pen is mightier than the sword, but a maul is a different 
story!-- Zontani Sharp Eyes

Three-two and a death.  Damn.  That Dyslexic Editor is worse than useless, he's
DANGEROUS.  Levandar wasn't great, but he'd been with us a long time.  Still, that a
gladiator should die in the arena is not a matter of wonder. -- Desert Pearl

                 NEW TEAMS IN THE TEMPORARY TOURNAMENT ARENA (DM 85)

Please note that all new teams created at the Face-to-Face were temporarily placed in 
a temporary Tournament Arena, DM 85.  If you requested that your team be placed in a 
specific arena, it has already transferred to that arena.  Effective immediately, any 
teams placed in DM 85 and not transferred out to another arena, will be automatically 
deleted a month after the tournament.  If you have questions about any of your teams, 
please contact Customer Service. -- RSI 

                        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!
