                             Notes from the arena champ.

     You were much to careless, Waldo!  Can't have that.  Straighten up, fly right,
and keep your socks pulled up.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Thankyouthankyou.  It's great for me, The Unknown Spymaster to be back in 
KOLACT.  Hope you enjoy the show.  Oh, who am I kidding?  I already got paid!  Hey 
everybody, watch out for KILIMANJARO, who flew up 26 points in the rankings after 
mashing NESTOR ORDH like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  Ya know, some days it 
doesn't pay to walk out on the sands.  WALDO lost to QUIZNOS and drops 14 points.  
It's a proud day for the SIR AGLIO stable, as their warrior, SIR COPHAGUS, ascended 
the Duelmaster's throne.  Advice to bashers--never force anything, just get a bigger 
halberd!   
     Let's dig a little deeper into what's happening in the KOLACT arena.   
     Being a spy is great--other people die and you spend the rest of the day 
drinking to their memory.  Better tanked than dead!  Here's some advice:  warriors 
with little wit and will may encounter problems on the trail to the Isle.   
     Well, there's the manager of the KOLACT giving me the 'cut' sign (or is that 
'They're going to strangle you in the alley?).  Well, there goes another Spy Report.  
Good luck in next week's fights.  See ya next time I'm on this circuit!-- The Unknown 
Spymaster

Quiznos -- Do I get a waxing with that buff-up job? ...or was that a buff-up with

Actaen -- It's time to fall back on my strengths.  Oh, wait one, I'm a piker, I don't
have any strengths.  Ha! -- Waldo

Sir Cumference -- I detected a bit of a corner there!  Unacceptable.  Rounder,
rounder, curve that line! -- Estrella, trying out for a post as an Aerobic Instructor

while sipping a double mocha)

Sir Cophagus -- There's really nothing to be done about it, is there?  With weather
like this, EVERYONE coughs. -- Cynica

Fratsfa Slave?  These darned Fratsfa Slaves are all OVER the place.  Next thing you

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
