     M. Chardinee is all they could find to fight ME?  That's insulting.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, friends and fiends, welcome to your friendly neighborhood spyreport.  
I doubt LIN TIRIAN will ever be the same.  And let's see, HAROUN SHADDAR fought GREEN 
J and gained 20 points and contributed to SAND DANCERS' 2-2-0.  GREEN J has lost to 
HAROUN SHADDAR, falling 19 points, while helping make J a 3-2-0 turn.  The attempts 
to dethrone the Duelmaster have failed, and DELNA BERIN remains LIN TIRIAN's top 
warrior for another turn.  By the way, was that our Duelmaster that I saw last night, 
cramped under the table at The Lost Hope Inn?   
     He who challenges well, fights well.  He who avoids without cause, shall lose 
for good reasons.  My mama told me that one.   
     A coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave man only once.  Wise men know this to 
be true.  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?  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

Okay, Jorja says we've got to hustle these personals, because the hands are going
somewhere else almost immediately.  Bummer, I could've thought of lots of good stuff
to say, I bet.  Still, I didn't mind defeating the Khalhums Dwarf on my last fight
here. -- Tesla Sharpe

Mike -- You will never make a duck hunter, and you should be glad of that.  We Ducks
hunt down the hunters, you know. -- Kurtal Duck

                        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 (480-894-7444), 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!
