                                      SPY REPORT

     It is I, Novgorodny Vir, Spymaster of Spymasters.  Look on my work, ye mighty, 
and despair!  Nothing works for a team like victory (How's that for a perceptive 
observation?) as DARK PANTHEON can attest...  DARK PANTHEON had cause to celebrate, 
after FORLORN got 17 points by beating DAVY CROCKETT.  A certain someone should cut 
down on the drinking and practice more, after losing 12 points to FAIRY.  (Discrete 
enough, MINNIE PEARL?) The Duelmaster is dead.  Long live the next one.  THE LADY'S 
LIST is ecstatic as SATCHEL becomes top dog.  Word has it one team in TRANSEL is 
using psychics to predict wins.  They lead a charmed life!   
     So much to report, so little time!  Like a horde of jackals fleeing from the 
lion, so did the "warriors" in TRANSEL avoid DARK PANTHEON.  As a woman of good 
breeding scorns the "warriors" of 071406AD, so did that sorry team shy from DARK 
PANTHEON If challenges were horses, DAVY CROCKETT could open up a fast food joint!   
     The moving sword slashes, and having slashed, moves on...  Oh hard!  that to 
strike a flame, the match itself must needs be wasting!   
     All good things must come to an end.  As the seasons change, and the creatures 
of the wild change also, so do I feel a yearning to leave this place.  Can anything 
compare to the pleasure of writing Spyreports for TRANSEL?  On that giddy note I take 
my leave-- Novgorodny Vir

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....
