                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Yes, there is a new stop on the subway.  This stop is being used on a trial
basis only, stopping at the throne of Valamantis.  Depending on its popularity (more
likely depending on whether any bears or zombies appear to harass customers) will
determine how permanent this stop will be.

                                      SPY REPORT

     You elder fighters surely remember me.  The younger ones may call me Olaf 
Modeen.  I return to VALAMANTIS once again!  Bein' on top is great while it lasts, 
MAGIC KINGDOM.  But how many friends do you have now?  Phhbltt!  Too much drinking 
and too little dodging gave MAGIC KINGDOM a 0-0-0!  I got a good laugh out of it!  Ya 
gotta be quick on yer feet!  Keep your elbow off the table!  Thrust!  Block out the 
pain!  ZOMBIE SQUAD is now ranked 1st with a 3-1-0 turn.  MIDDLE WAY 10 showed 
VALAMANTIS what they were made of as they fought with a vengeance to walk off with 
4-1-0.  What's with MARIAH?  She actually beat GARBAGE PAIL KIDS' DANG LEN, and 
walked away with 29 more points from the fight.  Laughs were big at ZOMBIE SQUAD 
while they watched MARIAH clobber DANG LEN.  He lost 24 points and got bruised from 
objects thrown from the stands.  I'm sure VALAMANTIS is excited about WALKER, the new 
Duelmaster from ZOMBIE SQUAD.  (remember?)  But when you've seen as many as I have... 
Wouldn't it be nice to have live subjects to practice on?  I hear some team is 
looking into the uses of convicted prisoners.   
     No matter the time or place, men will always duel.  How well I know the feeling 
of being in the most avoided team!  Don't fall out of practive, DARKSIDEOFTVLAND 3!  
In my day, no team with a 7-2-1 would scare me off!  What's the problem, PUBLIC 
TRANSIT?   
     A fighter's lot is filled with strife, revenge, and killing.  Some fighters 
don't accept this.  The best do.  Here's some advice:  study your opponent, master 
many skills, fight dirty.   
     Many other cities have retirement homes for aged warriors.  Any plans here?  
VALAMANTIS is a nice place to live, but I don't like to live in nice places.  Time 
for my medication, so I'll leave now.  Practice, practice, practice!-- Olaf Modeen

I think that's enough.  At least for a while. 22-12-.647 seems adequate, if not
downright nice, for a bunch of crap.  It goes to show that Crapmasters can win with
ANYTHING. -- That's Mr. Crapmaster to you.

Dang, Len, that was Well Don!  Seriously, despite the puns. -- Kim Neuw

A-1 -- As you can see, I'm well down in the alphabet.  But at least my record remains
unbroken. -- Lendis Ohlm

Mariah -- You're surprisingly good looking for a zombie. -- Lon Olbert

Star -- I have no trouble believing that. -- Oder Quin

Danny Glads -- YOU may be glad, *I* am not.  This is a bad trend for me, and for the

                        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!
