                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, warriors of LIN TIRIAN!  Once again I've been called out of 
retirement for my abilities and insights into Spyreporting.  What's with GENERAL 2?  
He actually beat LIN TIRIAN's EMBEZZLING SCRIBE, and walked away with 16 more points 
from the fight.  Laughs were big at SHEWISH BUFFET while they watched MONSTER MASH 
clobber SILVER SLIM.  He lost 13 points and got bruised from objects thrown from the 
stands.  Our Duelmaster has lost, folks, lost to KUNG-FU MASTER, BUT URIK DARKHEART 
is still the Duelmaster because he has the most recognition points!  Advice to 
fighters with a 1 will--give up fighting!   
     Speaking of cowardly avoiders and unfair challenges...   
     There have been some calls to lengthen the time limit.  Do you want the fighters 
to walk away, or not?  SILVER SLIM larned his lesson (MONSTER MASH taught it well), 
and we right likely won't be seein' 'im fight any SHEWISH BUFFET members with the 
same gusto.  Here's some advice:  study your opponent, master many skills, fight 
dirty.   
     Many other cities have retirement homes for aged warriors.  Any plans here?  The 
end of another Spyreport!  That's cause for celebration in my book!  Remember--a good 
fighter needs both good skills and good luck.  Until next time,-- Olaf Modeen

No POINT!  A lot SHE knows.  I bet SHE wrote columns when SHE had the chance.  She's
just out to get me down.  She's jealous.  Bah. -- Urik Darkheart

I wish somebody had TOLD me that the Veteran Mercenary was, as they say, "onto" the
bottom dealing business. -- Silver Slim, now black and blue

Knuckle Sandwich -- You'd serve that to a woman?  To ME?  You orcs really are crudely
physical, aren't you? -- Vera Teague

AMAZING. -- Rock Hardman

last year by popular request.  Room rates are $145.00 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 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!
