                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, KALTOS?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed 
to see FERGUS HILL win a fight and gain 19 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, FERGUS HILL 
beat TWINK and TWINK lost 14 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  SUSHIE challenged 
KALTOS' Duelmaster for a shot at the throne.  And it's out with the old, in with the 
new, as SUSHIE takes the Title and last week's bar tab from the old Duelmaster.  Heh, 
heh.  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, KALTOS?   
     My mother always told me, 'If you don't have anything nice to say, start 
talking.' I loved that woman.  KALTOS, I am losing what little hope I had in you.  
SPORTS GREATS the most avoided team?  What insult will suffice, I cannot say.  And 
who led the way in this mass act of cowardice?  Let's see, well, whatcha know?  It 
was PAPER MARIO.  Ha ha ha ha!  SUSHIE was challenged more times this turn than the 
Duelmaster.  Now was the DM insulted or feared?  Heh, heh.   
     Death and Taxes.  The less death I see, the more it taxes my patience.  Let's 
see if anyone's dead or dying.  We're all going to die in the end, so why worry if 
the fate catches up with you sooner that later?   
     I was about to buy a new quill pen the other day, but some fighter took it for 
an epee.  Forgive me for writing with a dagger.  Well, I've had enough of this 
drivel, and I'm sure you have too.  Off like a dirty shirt of padded leather.  Glad 
to see the back of this place-- Snide Clemens

What can I say, Mickey Mantle.  I was rash in my statements about you.  You are good.
You kicked my posterior.  I whiffed!  A salute to you. -- Sushie

Fergus -- Sometimes I wonder how I do that? -- Twink

Elinde -- Perfume?  Nah, it is my magnanimous personality! -- Bombette

Gretsky -- Hah, hah, hah.  If you challenged me, I probably wasn't there to fight
you.  I try not to waste any time on puck-people. -- Tubba Blubba

I am very, very disappointed, Sushie, that you lost the Duelmaster throne.  And to a
mere Yankee.  How embarrassing! -- Luigi, mgr. Paper Marios

Twink -- Nothing like a familiar, ah, sense-organ cluster.  I never know how to
handle golems.  Have you considered converting? -- Fergus Hill

Tubba Blubba -- I'd really like to get you over a hot fire and just...see what
happens.  Why, we could get enough oil rendered out to light Kaltos for a year! --
Elinde Goss

Star Rod -- I wish I knew how you attracted lightning like that, and then deflected
it onto your opponent.  It would be intriguing to interrupt the process in the
middle: let you attract it, and then NOT deflect it.  Just to see what would happen.
-- Jeri Lough
P.S.  When you make my hair stand on end, under my helmet, it gets hideously tangled,
you see.  Sometimes it takes DAYS to get it combed out again.

Bombette -- I think it IS your perfume.  (eyes watering)  Horrible stuff.  How do you
stand it? -- Helene Juste

Gretzky -- Well, this makes an oh-fer turn for us.  Good thing our manager isn't
hard-nosed about stuff like that! -- Orverd Quill

Our congratulations to Mickey Mantle. -- the Middle Way

Ah, the joys of being the team moving fastest...downward.  What excitement! -- Fergus
Hill, for the Middle Way

Bombette -- But I can't lift it. -- Elinde Goss

Star Rod -- You're a mechanism, not a person, so how can any treatment be despicable?
-- Fergus Hill, perhaps a lout but not despicable

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
to:  CFH/Rat Salad DM 47

RSI is now taking rollups for a slow version of the No-Tournament arena.  Send your
rollup to RSI listing the arena as "Slow No Tournament".  Sign and send in the
following pledge:

* I pledge that I will not send warriors from this team to a Tournament, nor will I
  use a Tournament prize on a warrior from this team.
* I pledge to run a full team when I run turns in this arena.  If circumstances
  preclude my running less than a full team I will notify the Player Committee.
* I agree to abide by the decisions of the Player Committee.
* I understand that any warrior that participates in a Tournament shall be sent to
  the Dark Arena until they are dead.
* I understand that any warrior that receives a Tournament prize shall be send to the
  Dark Arena until they are dead.

The following are the rules for joining this No-Tournament arena 

1.  No tournament play (Dead tournament or otherwise)
2.  One team per manager
3.  Team starts with new rollup (or a zero fight equivalent team is transferred into
    this arena.)
4.  No tourney prizes allowed to modify warriors in the arena
5.  20 teams required, per RSI
6.  Waivers are required to allow self-regulation on tourney ban, granting RSI
    authority to Dark Arena any warrior that participates in a Tournament (until the
    warrior is dead.)
7.  Rotating council to enforce tourney ban and maintain arena integrity.

Hammer will be the focal point for this arena's Player Committee.
