                                      SPY REPORT

     Much has changed in ZORPUNT since last I was here.  Never fear, Olaf Modeen 
adapts to many situations, as do all successful fighters.  What's with A. MONK, P.I.? 
It actually beat KRILL CAVALRY's TERI LARK, and walked away with 6 more points from 
the fight.  Laughs were big at 071406C while they watched A. MONK, P.I. clobber TERI 
LARK.  She lost 4 points and got bruised from objects thrown from the stands.  I'm 
sure ZORPUNT is excited about A. MONK, P.I., the new Duelmaster from 071406C.  
(remember?)  But when you've seen as many as I have...  Advice to fighters with a 1 
will--give up fighting!   
     If at first you don't succeed, avoid.  That'll get you in the Spyreports.   
     A fighter's lot is filled with strife, revenge, and killing.  Some fighters 
don't accept this.  The best do.  Here's some advice:  study your opponent, master 
many skills, fight dirty.   
     Well, I'm pretty much through.  You guys need to get back practicing.  Are you 
as tired of reading this as I am of writing it?  Actually, I guess I'm writing it 
before you read it.  Oh, well.  Remember--a good fighter needs both good skills and 
good luck.  Until next time,-- Olaf Modeen

Ultimate Sin -- Whew!  That was CLOSE, I might've ended up with the column to write.
I don't think I could have managed that today, due to various factors such as a
serious disinclination to do any such thing.  So...there I am, saved by chocolate
because nothing is more sinfully delicious than rich dark chocolate) (although some
things are equally sinfully delicious, of course). -- Teri Lark

Do Hickey -- Today, it's Don't Hickey.  After all, hickeys are unsightly.  They allow
cats to creep out of bags, to the embarrassment of many.  They are, generally,
undesirable.  So take a tip and Don't Hickey. -- Loren Poole

Ha!  Kusster, the Dangerous Criminal, falls before my blade!  Or under my blade, to
be more precise.  Or as a result of his furious and futile activity.  You know, he's
a tough customer.  I broke his weapon in the first minute, EARLY in the first minute,
he hit me several times with his fists, well, at least he tried twice, but I dodged
one and parried the other, and then he drew his backup and hit me lots more, no joke,
and didn't finally collapse until the end of a long second minute.  What a teammate
he would make!  But as it is, there was nothing for it but to clip off a lock of his
long blond hair (he's Fratsfan) and walk away while the crowd cheered my prowess. --
Travis T Flete

Absorb All -- I bet if I really tried, I could think of SOMETHING you couldn't
absorb.  Depending on how you're doing the absorbing, of course.  Like a sponge?  Bet
you couldn't absorb a mudslide! -- Kerman Jones

Holy Moly -- A neutered giant?  No wonder you have problems.  I may not LIKE a bunch
of testosterone running around in a large male body, but it DOES enhance certain
attributes. -- Miressea Poole

Looshus J. Kittson, Convicted Thief -- Everybody makes excuses. -- Miressea Poole

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
