                                      SPY REPORT

     Ready for some action-packed adventure, some thrills, chills and spills?  Well 
fergit it, cause this is the Spyreport for ZUWAYZA.  Too bad, WALI'S FINEST, but 
TAHAHN HAH was just too good to be stopped.  The guys at TAHAHN HAH like really 
pulled together to get a 3-2-1 this turn, moving up by 3.  MVP award for DARDANIUS?  
IDES OF MARCH's proud of him after beating MATARSE FURY and getting 13 points.  Talk 
about yer major upsets!  FLIGHT JOURNAL's match with TIPPY cost him a loss of 7 
points!  Our last turn's Duelmaster has lost, folks, lost to CONVICTED ASSASSIN, and 
CARY YON has made the way for a new Duelmaster!  AURORA of TEAM CHAOS takes CARY 
YON's place.  (But seriously, who could ever take the place of CARY YON?  Oh, all 
right.) I hear the top team insists all their warriors get nine hours sleep.  They 
want photogenic fighters for PR photos.   
     Look, you guys stick to fighting, all right?  The warriors of FUNKY FOLK must be 
getting lonely.  They were the most avoided team.  Do you guys know something that I 
don't?  Hhmph!  What kind of warriors are JAGUAR WARRIORS?  FUNKY FOLK, an easy team 
to beat if I ever saw one, can't get them to accept an invitation!  Can TEAM CHAOS' 
AURORA be more popular than me?  She was challenged the most, but is that really the 
same?  I'm not so sure HIDEKI HAO knew all the facts when he challenged AURORA of 
TEAM CHAOS.  I saw HIDEKI HAO stumbling and dribbling at The Drunken Ox last week...  
AURORA beat HIDEKI HAO, and was I surprised (right!).  But its a good thing AURORA 
could stop laughing long enough to give HIDEKI HAO a good pounding.   
     What does a fighter fight for?  I mean, the crowds don't give a hoot if someone 
gets killed.  Not after four more fights.  AURORA really fought hard against HIDEKI 
HAO.  That'll teach JAGUAR WARRIORS not to go and kill any of TEAM CHAOS' guys again, 
huh!  Like was that some Bloodfeud, or what?  (FLAVIUS VALERIUS vs. ONG-BAK, that 
is.) What if they had a fight and nobody showed up?  I'd be out of a job, that's 
what!!!   
     Remember, blood on a purple robe may stain.  Soak it in cold water, and hand 
wash.  I know how much you like reading this stuff, but I really should stop.  Its 
been really albendranius!  Later, guys-- Debby Tonte

Aurora -- Just remember that I did not make the challenge.  I don't think that I can
beat you.  All I ask is that you do not kill me.  That is if you are the one
challenging me. -- Ong-Bok

The Kung Fu Master cheats!  He doesn't use weapons. -- Hideki Hao

     Thus, they never break.  A great economy.

Times -- Not enough time.  To do what I want to you.  Not enough time. -- Matarse
Fury

Flight Plan -- You must take me on a flight one of these day.  Then I'll atest to
it's wortyness. -- Matarse Fury

Flavius Valerius -- If you should chance to wish to sell that useless armor, I could
make you a good deal on an ad.  I have a special page:  Armor Tried and True, Bought
and Sold.  Through my pages, one may find a market for ANYTHING.  Yes, it's true,
ANYTHING. -- Nifty Nickel
P.S.  It's a question of wording.
P.P.S.  And price.

Matarse Fury -- I can see that you are the Woman of the Week!  An interviewer and
sketch-artist will be dispatched at once. -- Times

Jewel -- Tricky, very tricky.  I was going along just fine and then... poof, all my
instruments went haywire.  It must be something in your aura. -- Flight Journal

White Chocolate -- (with the curled lip of scorn)  White?  Bloodless. -- Blood Sports

Caramel -- It took me so long to get my teeth unstuck, I missed the beginning of our
match.  Which was also darned near the end of it.  Rats.  And you want to put that
stuff in my CARBURATOR?  Gods. -- Hot Rod

Our congratulations to Cary Yon.  Go for it! -- the Magnificient Mags

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
