                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Schmid on top.  But you knew that.  You expected that.  You ain't all dumb.  You
know the best rise to the top.  You probably feel good because the best is on top.
You should.
     Lady Sheila knows.  She pulls the best to The Isle.  Here I go.  A Lord
Protector, as expected.
     I know.  I know.  You lust after me and my make up.  You wanna be like The
Schmid.  Well, here I am:
     12(+2)-19)+3)-13-9(+1)-21(+2)-15(+1)-7(+3) mode TP
     Trem Endurance; Good damage
     Experts in parry and defense (The best need no more)
     Longspear
     Low/Mod
A winning machine.  That's what life is about, right?
     Over and out.
                 Sgt Schmid, Duelmaster & Lord Protector

                                      SPY REPORT

     Much has changed in IAYE since last I was here.  Never fear, Olaf Modeen adapts 
to many situations, as do all successful fighters.  Phhbltt!  Too much drinking and 
too little dodging gave CIRCUS MAXIMUS a 0-0-0!  I got a good laugh out of it!  
What's with QUEEN CHINEE?  She actually beat CRYSTAL PALACE's UNSCATHED, and walked 
away with 22 more points from the fight.  Major screwup at GAMEHENDGE.  SLEEPS ALL 
DAY lost 10 points to BAZTHRAX.  Some new strategies, perhaps?  Maybe SLEEPS ALL DAY 
will provide more easy wins...  IAYE has a Duelmaster who doesn't sit back and get 
lazy.  He challenged THE A'S -- LOSERS II's THE CLEAR (25-24-0), which should prove 
(ahem!) interesting.  THE CLEAR was reminded on the sands why SGT. SCHMID is 
Duelmaster.  Wouldn't it be nice to have live subjects to practice on?  I hear some 
team is looking into the uses of convicted prisoners.   
     Speaking of cowardly avoiders and unfair challenges...  How well I know the 
feeling of being in the most avoided team!  Don't fall out of practive, CIRCUS 
MAXIMUS!  In my day, no team with a 186-171-10 would scare me off!  What's the 
problem, LENPROS?  How well I know the feeling of being the most challenged warrior, 
EARTHQUAKE EXCUSE!  Don't make idle boasts, they may come back to haunt you.  
Fighting is a better craft than farming, EARTHQUAKE EXCUSE, but you have to pay your 
dues.  Being challenged by MAORAKITH, 22 points above you, is dues.  MAORAKITH 
defeated EARTHQUAKE EXCUSE.  I bet MAORAKITH could beat two-year-olds, too.  Well, 
THE A'S -- LOSERS II knows who to set their sights on.  FENCE POST didn't quite know 
what to make of a challenge he received from ISPEP of RANDOM, who is 18 points below 
him.  ISPEP perhaps got his just desserts, seeing as he won victory over FENCE POST 
and ended up with 46 recognition points.   
     There have been some calls to lengthen the time limit.  Do you want the fighters 
to walk away, or not?  Here's some advice:  study your opponent, master many skills, 
fight dirty.   
     Who knows what the future holds for a warrior.  More fights, there's no doubt.  
All work and no play makes Olaf a dull fighter.  Work and play no fighter dull Olaf.  
Olaffighterwork and no play.  I don't want to overstay my welcome...-- Olaf Modeen

Enchanted -- You Crystal monster-sized aimer, just because you are an aimer, you
really didn't think you had a chance, did you?  Har.  Har. -- Sgt Schmid

Wrote The Book -- Is it easy?  I always wanted to write a book.  But always too busy
with royal duties, you know? -- Lady Huntsman

Sarjski -- That was a very nice record, and did not see how I could win matched head-
to-head.  But the gods intervened and blessed me with luck.  Salute. -- Lord Walton

The Boy King -- Whew!  That was hard work!  My last offering to the one true god paid
off in the extra power and endurance to excel.  You should consider converting. --
Cardinal Arizpe

All -- It is good to see Sgt Schmid graduate and move on.  I must admit to having had
some difficulties with the control of some of my stable of late.  As you know, The
Lenpros were built on Health, Humility, Honor.  As we move towards that elusive 1000
win status, (only Mino of Animal Farm has reached it for The Consortium) I want to
bring The Lenpros back to our roots.  I will be teaching and training much harder in
HUMILITY. -- Lenpro

Obbo -- Primitive?  That weapon reeks of history and value.  Why on e-bay.... -- Lord
Walton

Pop Idol -- I was doing fine, I can, you know, and then you went POP and it startled
me so much that I...well, I just lost. -- Bigfoots
P.S.  Promise me you'll explain to Leeta that it wasn't MY doing.  It was just, you
know, being hit by your hands while I was on the ground, on my knees at least, and
you hit me on the ankle with your fist!  That was confusing.
P.P.S.  Er, well done, I guess.  I'm still confused about the whole thing.

Princess Diana -- It just seems so WRONG that you're a guy.  It offends my sense of
rightness and order.  Try not to do that again.  Become a woman or, I suppose, a
prince. -- Fence Post, who likes things straight up and down

Vranthelle -- Ha!  I DO laugh at you!  Well, thnicker, at leatht.  Not a big laugh.
Becauthe you were a very good thtudent, and I approve of that.  Thtudy well, and you
will do better. -- Hithelliene

Sleeps All Day -- I wish. -- Dr Trinaire

Obbo -- Amazing!  Did you know that your name spelled backwards is obbO?  What a
peculiar congruence.  Probably highly significant, but I don't do highly significant,
so you'll have to work out the inner meanings yourself.  Sorry.  I'm a superficial
kind of guy. -- Irish Cream

Our congratulations to Sgt. Schmid.  Go, man, go! -- the Red Dog Gang
P.S.  Collections are for lowly clerks and scribes, you don't need one.

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....
