                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail LIN TIRIAN!  Warriors of the arena, prepare to be praised and blamed for 
your deeds.  It seems the training can make the difference, as SAND DANCERS is pushed 
out of top team by J, who came from 2nd with a 4-1-0 this turn.  And let's see, SJS 
fought KURTAL DUCK and gained 27 points and contributed to J's 4-1-0.  KURTAL DUCK 
has lost to SJS, falling 23 points, while helping make SAND DANCERS a 3-2-0 turn.  
Due to his absence and inability to defend the throne, UNFORGETTABLE has lost the 
title of Duelmaster.  And not without some honor, JOEY now claims the title and 
throne of Duelmaster of LIN TIRIAN.  Can someone confirm a rumor for me?  I hear the 
top team makes their losing fighters do dishes at The Lost Hope Inn until they win.  
Maybe?   
     The crowd's roar, the smell of iron and leather, mixed with sweat, what more 
could a warrior ask of life?  Well, besides that.   
     We only live a short time in this world, so why not take a sharp blade, and 
shave it close?  Is it really true that LIN TIRIAN has more dishwashers per capita 
that fighters?  Just thought I'd ask...   
     I like this place, LIN TIRIAN, the taverns have old wine, and young serving 
girls.  Who could ask for more?  Always good to rest in LIN TIRIAN, but never good to 
wear out my welcome.  Look for me in future turns.  Until you see my quill in LIN 
TIRIAN again, farewell-- Alarond the Scribe

                        WINTER FACE-TO-FACE IN SUNNY ARIZONA!

Our next winter FTF will be held in Tempe, Arizona, January 14-16, 2011.  It will be 
held at the Embassy Suites Hotel in Tempe, Arizona (480-894-7444), the same hotel as 
last year by popular request.  Room rates are $129.00 per night, 1-2 occupancy, which 
includes full cooked breakfast, complimentary manager's reception (yes, really!), 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 22 
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!
