     I am complicated and comforting at the same time.  Peel back one layer, and you

                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of JURINE!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp Eyes, 
Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  WILLI ZANE caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as she skillfully bested ROB SLOB and was awarded 15 points 
in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, WILLI ZANE put down ROB 
SLOB, causing him to lose 13 points of recognition in the process.  Although JENNI 
KORREG made a valiant effort, it did not suffice to topple the reign of victorious 
ZENSU LASAGNA.  No confirmation, but my sources claim that the top team has gained 
their position using magical aids.  Charmed weapons perhaps?   
     I have been in deep conclave with my spies who watched all that has recently 
transpired.  Indeed there is much I would report.   
     Vendettas.  Bloodied blades and broken spears.  Indeed the city has seen more 
than its fair share of red in recent times.  Dark alleys may hide both secrets and 
assassins.  In the arena there is only the brightness of steel.  Keep vigil always!   
     If it were not for my skills as a spy I would have been mugged three times 
already in JURINE.  Nice atmosphere you have here!  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

From:       The Office of Accurate Census Reporting, Gladiatorial Commission
To:         All Managers

In the interest of preserving our natural resources and preventing managerial writer's 
cramp, census forms will be provided for warriors by request only, effective 
immediately.  Managers may register their warriors' races and/or favorite sayings by 
simply writing them on a separate piece of paper and submitting them to the Commission.  
For any questions, please contact the Gladiatorial Commission. 

                        WINTER FACE-TO-FACE IN SUNNY ARIZONA!

Our next winter FTF will be held in Tempe, Arizona, January 17-19, 2014.  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 $145.00 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 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!
