                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     The Khalhums Dwarf.  I was over-matched, but what the heck.  No guts, no glory.

                                    Deemer Eppt

                                      SPY REPORT

     The sages err'd not in their foretelling of a god descending upon JURINE, for I, 
Novgorodny Vir, have returned!  Practice pays for FORBERT GRELL, who pummelled BOOTSY 
COLLINS, to pocket 25 points.  BOOTSY COLLINS certainly had a baffled expression on 
his face, after losing to FORBERT GRELL and losing 12 points in the process!  Our 
Duelmaster has lost, folks, lost to VENOMOUS CONCUBINE, BUT DEEMER EPPT is still the 
Duelmaster because he has the most recognition points!  So who was the warrior seen 
charging into immovable walls and challenging dead trees?  Someone's got a basic 
problem...   
     My mother wished me to avoid conflict, and seek the gentle trade of Spyreporter. 
But warriors aren't supposed to avoid fights!   
     Like the wind whispering among the pines, do hearest I many disquieting rumors.  
Oh hard!  that to strike a flame, the match itself must needs be wasting!   
     Do not think spyreporting in JURINE is the highlight of my life.  As the seasons 
change, and the creatures of the wild change also, so do I feel a yearning to leave 
this place.  Can anything compare to the pleasure of writing Spyreports for JURINE?  
On that giddy note I take my leave-- Novgorodny Vir

                        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!
