                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Of course I bested "L8r."  She's an illiterate fool and DESERVED to be bested.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, in ERINIKA a quiet thief gets rich, but a quiet spymaster gets poor.  
So bring me ale and harken to my tidbits of news.  It seems the training can make the 
difference, as MIDDLE WAY 18 is pushed out of top team by H8 2 TXT, who came from 2nd 
with a 4-1-0 this turn.  And let's see, MRALISSA LOON fought R U DMB and gained 15 
points and contributed to MIDDLE WAY 18's 2-3-0.  SARMINO TIELO has lost to L8R, 
falling 12 points, while helping make MIDDLE WAY 18 a 2-3-0 turn.  And all eyes were 
on BBIAB this turn as she ascended to the throne of Duelmaster.  ERINIKA has a new 
victor!  By the way, was that our Duelmaster that I saw last night, cramped under the 
table at The Swinging Aardvark?   
     Oriental wise man once say, 'Hiding behind shields prevents proper sun tanning.' 
Inscrutable, but true.   
     A coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave man only once.  Wise men know this to 
be true.  A brave warrior does not carry a red shield, he has nothing to cover or 
hide when the fight is over.  Consider well.   
     Thought for the day, a new sword shines bright, but the notched sword sings the 
sweetest.  It's been nice chatting with you, until we meet again, keep your swords 
sharp and your hammers heavy.  Until the sun next rises and my pen sets to paper-- 
Alarond the Scribe

entirely, and I won't look the other way. -- Mralissa Loon

                        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!
