     Fergus chose a boat that was big enough for stability, and small enough for two
men to handle.
     Orverd clambered in behind him and took a rowing position, reaching for the oars
while Fergus got them shoved away from the dock.  "Who saw whatever-it-is off
Whistling Rock?" he asked.  "Not many people go out that way."
     "A guy off a ship," Fergus answered, shrugging.  "A pilot, I think, but not a
harbor pilot, so he had time to look around when they were coming in.  At least, I
think so."
     "Think he was a pilot?"
     "Yeah...and I think he was off one of the ships that just came in today.  Or
yesterday.  Probably.  Not someone I've seen before, anyway."  He glanced over his
shoulder to set a course and dipped his oars into the water.
     Orverd frowned over that as he rowed, but after a few minutes dismissed the
puzzle.  No one expected him to solve puzzles, after all.  If Fergus wanted to go
check Whistling Rock because a stranger saw something, fine.  Better than hanging
around the guildhouse practicing his gladiatorial moves.  Besides, he was never sure
he HAD any personal moves, just ones he'd copied, usually not very well--at least,
they didn't work well for him--from other gladiators.
     Much better to think about what he might say to Bombette to get her to go for a
walk with him, and maybe a drink.  Dancing, maybe.  He was actually a pretty good
dancer, though most people never expected it of him.
     The job of rowing reclaimed his attention as the boat suddenly slid sideways
down a wave that was too big to be happening right now, and the water grabbed at one
of his oars.  Well, he was no stranger to tricky currents, and neither was Fergus, so
he set himself to follow whatever orders Fergus gave, and in the meantime to row
whenever he could get an oar into the water.  He could hear the sound for which
Whistling Rock was named, so they must be there.  Oh.  Then Fergus was probably going
around the rock to see if he could find whatever was here, which would explain the
strange motions.  Good.  He liked for things to have reasons.
     "There's a man in the water!" Fergus said.

     Sushie, The Really Neat Duelmistress

                                      SPY REPORT

     Oh, hi.  Its just little 'ol Debby Tonte.  Thought I'd check out KALTOS to see 
what's new.  Like, THE MIDDLE WAY 5 had to be so embarrassed when they got kicked off 
#1 spot by PAPER MARIO!  Way to go PAPER MARIO!  And I was just getting used to the 
ex-Duelmaster's habit of...(!)  Oh well, welcome MICKEY MANTLE.  Aren't SPORTS GREATS 
proud.  (Oh, my.) I hear the top team insists all their warriors get nine hours 
sleep.  They want photogenic fighters for PR photos.   
     So just why would someone becomes a warrior anyway?  It can't be for these 
really neat Spyreports can it?  THE MIDDLE WAY 5 was the most avoided team.  Is a 
311-333-13 record really that scary?  Is there some deep dark secret why PAPER 
MARIO's been avoiding THE MIDDLE WAY 5 so much?  Or is it just that they're too 
scared?  Can SPORTS GREATS' MICKEY MANTLE be more popular than me?  He was challenged 
the most, but is that really the same?  For sure, I was holding my breath when I 
found out TWINK challenged FERGUS HILL.  After all, haven't PAPER MARIO and THE 
MIDDLE WAY 5 had a long standing duel in KALTOS?  It wasn't a spectacular fight, or 
anything, but FERGUS HILL wants me to write about it since he lost to TWINK.  
     Man, all these warriors dying and killing each other!  Don't you guys ever give 
it a break?  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'm getting tired of writing this stuff, so I'm calling it 
quits.  I had a fun time, see you later-- Debby Tonte

Star Rod -- No loafing on MY boat.  So if you want to come along, you have to shape

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....

     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
