                             Notes from the arena champ.

Greetings Dullens!

I really didn't expect to be on the throne this turn.  Sleepy thought with the top
two ranked warriors being from Kirkwood, that if either one of them won, they'd have
enough points.  To my surprise I managed to stretch out the fight with ST-Stump Run
and eke out a win and enough points.  I have nothing but good things to say about the
two top contenders from Kirkwood.  They have fought well as their records indicate.

Lullaby Lunger was too busy last turn packing for the trip to AD, so I'll pass along
his thoughts as well.  He wanted to thank everyone for all the great battles.  Said
he expects there to be three more invites for folks in Dullens in the next three
turns.  Not sure how he figures that, but he's pretty darn smart and his sources are
usually quite good.

Sleep well, Dullens!

Wishful Wall

                                      SPY REPORT

     Welcome DULLENS.  I, Olaf Modeen remember this place well.  Many the fights have 
I fought here.  The celebrations, the disappointments...  What's with JUMPINJACK 
FLASH?  He actually beat DREAMERS' DREAMER, and walked away with 19 more points from 
the fight.  Laughs were big at PERFECTION QUEST 13 while they watched JUMPINJACK 
FLASH clobber DREAMER.  He lost 12 points and got bruised from objects thrown from 
the stands.  Try as it might, ST-STUMP RUN wasn't good enough at persuading WISHFULL 
WALL to step down from the Duelmaster's throne...  Wouldn't it be nice to have live 
subjects to practice on?  I hear some team is looking into the uses of convicted 
prisoners.   
     No matter the time or place, men will always duel.  How well I know the feeling 
of being the most challenged warrior, WS-THE WALL!  Don't make idle boasts, they may 
come back to haunt you.  WS-THE WALL didn't quite know what to make of a challenge it 
received from BEDTIME BASHER of DREAMERS, who is 25 points below it.  BEDTIME BASHER 
perhaps got his just desserts, seeing as he lost to WS-THE WALL and ended up with 75 
recognition points.   
     There have been some calls to lengthen the time limit.  Do you want the fighters 
to walk away, or not?  How long have I been here?  I got people to see, places to 
go...   
     Many other cities have retirement homes for aged warriors.  Any plans here?  All 
work and no play makes Olaf a dull fighter.  Work and play no fighter dull Olaf.  
Olaffighterwork and no play.  Time for my medication, so I'll leave now.  Practice, 
practice, practice!-- Olaf Modeen

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
to:  CFH/Rat Salad DM 47
