                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of AMEN-TEI!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp 
Eyes, Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  SERGEANT 4 caught the eye of many in 
the gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested LADY GAGA and was awarded 21 
points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, SERGEANT 4 put down 
LADY GAGA, causing her to lose 12 points of recognition in the process.  Due to hers 
absence and inability to defend the throne, BATHSHEBA has lost the title of 
Duelmaster.  This time victory fell to the grasp of the usurper.  All hail PFC 2, 
Duelmaster of AMEN-TEI!  Informants "close" to the city champion have told me that he 
never fights without pantyhose on beneath his armor.  Watch out!   
     But come now, let us look deeper into the maze of contention and crossed blades 
that is city AMEN-TEI.  I saw one fighter that warriors avoided when this week's 
challenge seeking began.  WAYFARERS is feared.  This much I can say.  Apparently the 
stalwarts of BAD GIRLS are catching the bulk of jests down at the challenging board 
for their large share of the avoids.  Loose talk at the arena has reached my ears and 
it but confirms the knowledge that many fighters are after GANGLION.  Watch your 
back!   
     What warrior does not hone his years, impatiently waiting for the moment of his 
foe's mortality?  Some guilds are strict but few are as heartless as BRAIN BOYZ.  
Witness, last turn they sent PONS, a 3-0-0 fighter, to the Dark Arena!  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!   
     If it were not for my skills as a spy I would have been mugged three times 
already in AMEN-TEI.  Nice atmosphere you have here!  Ahh, but I can hear the spires 
of a far off city calling to me.  I must away!  Till next we meet remember - the pen 
is mightier than the sword, but a maul is a different story!-- Zontani Sharp Eyes

Two-three, and there were a lot of standbys on the sands.  But did WE get any?  Not
likely!  Soldiers and Bad Girls!  And the worst was Bathsheba:  She wanted to get ME
into a bath!  Obviously some kind of plot intended to utterly destroy me.  Baths are
BAD.  Everyone knows that. -- Tomas Katt

                        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!
