                                      SPY REPORT

     Welcome JADE MOUNTAIN.  I, Olaf Modeen remember this place well.  Many the 
fights have I fought here.  The celebrations, the disappointments...  What's with 
GANOOSH?  He actually beat SAND DANCERS' KASTENMAR, and walked away with 11 more 
points from the fight.  What a role model for JADE MOUNTAIN's young 'uns!  BALISONG 
becomes Duelmaster, but don't bother to fight no more!  I'm sure JADE MOUNTAIN is 
excited about BUBBA, 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.   
     If at first you don't succeed, avoid.  That'll get you in the Spyreports.   
     Warriors of JADE MOUNTAIN unite.  You have only your games to lose!  How long 
have I been here?  I got people to see, places to go...   
     Well, I'm pretty much through.  You guys need to get back practicing.  JADE 
MOUNTAIN is a nice place to live, but I don't like to live in nice places.  
Remember--a good fighter needs both good skills and good luck.  Until next time,-- 
Olaf Modeen

                        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!
