The Veteran Mercenary's a nice enough guy, you know, loyal Nianian and all that stuff, but the Commission just doesn't see him as a Duel2Dude, so they stuck me with the job. Oh, sure, I WON the fight, so it isn't as bad as it MIGHT be, but cheese loueese, this is pathetic. Larsen E SPY REPORT I was going on vacation, see? Surf, sun... But what do those bums say? "Hit the road, Debby Tonte. NIANIA needs a spyreport." Oh, well. MVP award for GERSKOL KILLIT? THE ABYSMALS' proud of it after beating VERELESSE and getting 21 points. Talk about yer major upsets! VERELESSE's match with GERSKOL KILLIT cost her a loss of 11 points! Don't you think the Duelmaster is being unfair? I think LARSEN E should let CONVICTED ASSASSIN be Duelmaster for a while, without fighting about it. Who was the wiseguy that said NIANIA's Duelmaster was paying for drinks at Jim's Tap Room? Don't look at me! I gotta admit I haven't been in "deep con caves" with any spies. Really, I just wing this stuff. What does a fighter fight for? I mean, the crowds don't give a hoot if someone gets killed. Not after four more fights. Fight, fight, fight. Is that all you guys can do? I really didn't, you know, study when I was a kid. Who would've guessed I'd be a famous Spyreporter? I know how much you like reading this stuff, but I really should stop. Its been really albendranius!

More fun, too, I do like a tall blonde now and then. But (squinting) I think he's Illisni. Oh, well, he lost very nicely, so that will do. -- Findellis 4 Bridges -- What an odd name! But less embarrassing than many odd arena names visited upon gladiators, so I suppose you got off lightly. -- Koronedus People call them Dangerous Criminals, and they ARE, so why are they allowed to run loose in the arena? It seems unreasonable. -- Verelesse P.S. Or a dark comment on what the Commission thinks of US. Divaka Manwar -- You can't be TRULY abysmal, can you? Sure, I won, but I've had more practice at it. You'll improve! -- Sashinda P.S. You might try juggling lessons. Tarash Whatever, Embezzling Scribe -- Surely you aren't saying that someone LIED when you were convicted? No way, buster. You're a creep and a crook, and I won't let you sweet-talk me around again. -- Verelesse Biff Mugg -- I don't blame you for leaving Mordant, not really, I saw it myself once, and I couldn't WAIT to get away. But what's that got to do with dinner and dancing? -- Sashinda Helena Green -- Ow! -- Ghost of one too-Persistent Beggar Jirik Durete -- Okay! All right, you can stop biting my ear, I'll give you back your ring. I was just trying it on for size anyway. -- Zag the Dip Verelesse -- (twisting his mustache and smiling) My, you are a pretty little bird, are you not? Perhaps I have a gilded cage for you at home, eh? -- Red Barkol, not really a dwarf, though I do have a splendid black beard Findellis -- I could see you thinking, young woman, and it is actually much worse than you imagine. I was not, myself, ever Fratsfan, I was ENSLAVED by the evil Fratsfans! Would my former master could feel the sharp edge of your blade! -- Jenj, once a slave in Fratsfa, now a free man in Niania and employed by the Commission as Dire Warning not to trust those two-faced Northerners Larsen E -- Well, good enough. At least you managed to win, I had my doubts for a while. Try and pick up your cues faster in the future, though. I don't LIKE walking into your--or anybody's--blade just to make sure you take the title on a win. -- Korvoskol Turo 24 January 2007 The Council of Lords would like to propose a rule change in ADM and Primus. We propose that Lord Protectors ranked "Grand Champions" and below (ADM) and "The Tower Guard" and below (Primus) be allowed to fight in the Dark Arena. This would not impact the top rankings or title match. Any managers who never got his fill or shot at fighting Gateway monsters would have it as an option. We believe it might spark some interest in the ADM/Primus realm for some managers. If interested, speak up in the newsletters or on forums under the "rules changes" thread and let RSI know. This could even be something to try for 12 months and then be re-evaluated. What say you, managers of Ghea? -- The Icelord sends.... 29 January 2007 HDFA Mission Statement "Show me the money!" This is the battle cry of a newly formed collection of like-minded individuals: The High Dolla' Free Agent$. We are not a tough guy alliance: No...we offer no battle without reward. We search for victory and the prizes and accolades that follow. We are motivated by winning and will freely use whatever means necessary to obtain our currency. No stuffy rules, no mandates, no constitutions, no leaders, only a few objectives: 1) Win as often as possible 2) Celebrate freely and revel in your victories; the more meaningless the victory the more we celebrate. Highsiding and chest thumping are encouraged. Ostentatious endzone celebrations with prop usage are encouraged, regardless of fines, penalties, suspensions or arrest by local authorities. It is important to let your opponent know how great you are; more importantly, you must let your own alliance mates know how great you are. This is a 1-up alliance, let the performance of your fellow Free Agent$ motivate you. If a Free Agent wins a TV, win 2; if a Free agent wins a contest, win a more prestigious one. Current members of the HDFA include: CFH and Abraxis. Inquires can be directed to: CFH/Rat Salad DM 47 LAST WEEK'S FIGHTS CANOLI was unbelievably slain by STONE GOLEM in a 3 minute Dark Arena fight.
