                                      SPY REPORT

     I was going on vacation, see?  Surf, sun...  But what do those bums say?  "Hit 
the road, Debby Tonte.  CLIFFHOME needs a spyreport."  Oh, well.  Like, U.A.K. had to 
be so embarrassed when they got kicked off #1 spot by INQUISITION CLONES!  Way to go 
INQUISITION CLONES!  MVP award for VANILLA?  U.A.K.'s proud of him after beating BENT 
FENDER and getting 18 points.  Talk about yer big time losers!  AVERAGE JOE got 
smashed by DASHER, and lost 10 points!  Don't you think the Duelmaster is being 
unfair?  I think LEE LEE LO LEE should let CPT. CRUNCH be Duelmaster for a while, 
without fighting about it.  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?  Like, is DA9965439564 popular, or 
what?  He was challenged the most in all of CLIFFHOME!  He's got a 5-5-0, is that 
good?  See if I ever talk to SHOGUN again!  DA9965439564 was so low when He 
challenged he.  Hhmph!  If SHOGUN can't beat a warrior 20 points below himself, that 
he CHALLENGED, he oughtta be selling food in the stands!   
     What does a fighter fight for?  I mean, the crowds don't give a hoot if someone 
gets killed.  Not after four more fights.  Everyone has problems, but why did BOY O'S 
send PEDRO to the Dark Arena?  He had a 3-0-1, and I thought he looked neat on the 
sands...  Hey you guys, don't you think your families would like to hear from you?  
Write!  (Or have someone write for you.)  
     I really didn't, you know, study when I was a kid.  Who would've guessed I'd be 
a famous Spyreporter?  I gotta leave.  CLIFFHOME is like such a dump, and you guys 
smell too much!  I had a fun time, see you later-- Debby Tonte

Man, talk about being in a Pickle.  Was that Kosher?  Think I'll try a Bent Fender
this turn.  Might be more my speed. -- Vanilla

Riquettie -- I think you have proven with your two victories over me just how average
I am.  Think I'll try to stay away from you until I learn a few more skills. -- A.J.

That Khalhums Dwarf sure has a thick skin and tanks up on top of it.  Teach me not to
be prepared for heavier armor. -- Cpt Crunch

Lee -- Let's hear some words of wisdom from the throne.  You may be up there quite a
while.  Both my champs are rather underskilled to be able to challenge you.  But
we'll give it the Old School Cliffhome try as Riquettie puts it. -- Otis of the Iron
Council

Lee Lee Lo Lee -- What, your manager ran out of letters and had to make your name
from just THREE?  That's pathetic. -- Riquettie, six different letters, some
duplicated
P.S.  Hey, what ELSE is there to talk about?

Shogun -- I suppose it was a good instinct to bury me in the sand after killing me.
But I wouldn't have minded you NOT killing me.  I'd kind of gotten used to being
alive. -- Ghost of Lomber Bos
P.S.  Cut fuel lines can be tricky.  You're lucky I didn't explode right there in the
arena!

The Userous Merchant?  Heck.  It's no fun to talk to him, because he just keeps
telling me it's two cents plus interest compounded by the minute for his words.  Two
cents each.  I don't know what the interest is, I don't want to hear about it. --
Dasher

Da9965439564 -- I refuse to associate with somebody who has no identity beyond the
number tattooed on his engine block. -- Bent Fender

Vanilla -- Wow, my first fight, against a much more experienced warrior, and I WIN!
This is sooo cool! -- Pickel Upson
P.S.  I don't care that you're "plain vanilla."  I like vanilla.

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
