Yeah, well, you guys will be glad to know that I TRASHED the Convicted Assassin. I had him trembling and groveling, he was terrified! I am BAD. Larsen E SPY REPORT If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of NIANIA brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too. Of course, we're all terribly impressed to see 4 BRIDGES win a fight and gain 26 points, terribly. Tsk, tsk, 4 BRIDGES beat FINDELLIS and FINDELLIS lost 24 points. You're breakin' my heart. And if variety is the spice of life, NIANIA may be getting bland, as LARSEN E stays top dog in the city. I'm not in a very good mood today, but why am I telling you this? You want to know what's new, don't you, NIANIA? He who fights and runs away will live to fight another day, the coward. Ooh, I'm frightfully impressed, VERELESSE was this turn's most challenged warrior. Watch that ego swell, sports fans. Ah, now we come to my favorite part, where we see all the guys who are dead and gone, and get to see if their team cared. Honor is like a chainmail shirt, it only shines through use. Certain nameless cowards will doubtless rebuke me on this one. What does the NIANIA arena have in common with the inns? It's just as comfortable to sleep in either place. Ha ha ha ha! Just wait 'till next time I show up here, I won't be so nice! So nyaaah! I see the crowds are getting restless, I must leave now-- Snide Clemens DUELMASTER W L K POINTS TEAM NAME LARSEN E 5421 9 3 1 98 THE GOLDEN FISH (147) ADEPTS W L K POINTS TEAM NAME 4 BRIDGES 5347 3 2 0 54 OUT THE WINDOW (630) CHALLENGER INITIATES W L K POINTS TEAM NAME KORONEDUS 5430 4 3 0 33 THE GOLDEN FISH (147) FINDELLIS 5427 6 3 1 31 THE GOLDEN FISH (147) SASHINDA 5434 4 1 0 29 THE GOLDEN FISH (147) -SWITZER'S 5350 3 1 0 24 OUT THE WINDOW (630) INITIATES W L K POINTS TEAM NAME JIRIK DURSTE 5435 2 1 0 18 THE ABYSMALS (642) DIVAKA MANWAR 5437 1 2 0 16 THE ABYSMALS (642) VERELESSE 5432 3 3 1 15 THE GOLDEN FISH (147) -MISSISSIPPI 5349 1 0 0 15 OUT THE WINDOW (630) -MOUSSE 5443 1 0 0 13 SWEETS (643) -EJ DOME 5351 1 0 0 13 OUT THE WINDOW (630) GERSKOL KILLIT 5439 1 1 0 10 THE ABYSMALS (642) -ORANGE CONE 5348 1 1 0 8 OUT THE WINDOW (630) HELESA GREEN 5436 1 2 1 6 THE ABYSMALS (642) -DONUT 5440 0 1 0 1 SWEETS (643) '-' denotes a warrior who did not fight this turn. THE DEAD W L K TEAM NAME SLAIN BY TURN Revenge? PERSONAL ADS The Userous Merchant? Like I would ever BUY anything from him, or borrow money from him? I may be dumb, but I'm not THAT dumb. -- Fendellis Well, I'd be upset about being defeated by the Captured Orc, except that he's so MASTERFUL! He carried me out of the arena over his shoulder and took me to a private place...and then I knifed him in the ribs. Men shouldn't think they can get AWAY with stuff, you know. -- Sashinda Divaka Manwar -- A real opponent, and I won! This is great! Thanks, babe. Let me buy you dinner, eh? -- Koronedus Gerskol Killit -- Like I'm going to get in a bathtub with you? As if! -- Verelesse Red Barskol -- (cringe) -- Verelesse 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 14 February 2007 RSI is now taking rollups for a slow version of the No-Tournament arena.
