                                      SPY REPORT

     Oh, hi.  Its just little 'ol Debby Tonte.  Thought I'd check out CLIFFHOME to 
see what's new.  MVP award for SHOGUN?  BARHOPPERS' proud of him after beating 
RIQUETTIE and getting 26 points.  Talk about yer big time losers!  RIQUETTIE got 
smashed by SHOGUN, and lost 19 points!  This Duelmaster is like something else!  LEE 
LEE LO LEE stopped RUNNA DAMILL dead in his tracks!  Is the Duelmaster really being a 
real snob to his teammates?  Don't ask me!   
     Look, you guys stick to fighting, all right?  U.A.K. was the most avoided team.  
Is a 299-283-16 record really that scary?  Hhmph!  What kind of warriors are BOY O'S? 
U.A.K., an easy team to beat if I ever saw one, can't get them to accept an 
invitation!  Can JINDA-BAN's BENT FENDER be more popular than me?  He was challenged 
the most, but is that really the same?  People were asking me did LEONARDO REALLY 
challenge BENT FENDER?  (all right, maybe they didn't, but it sounded good!) It 
wasn't a spectacular fight, or anything, but BENT FENDER wants me to write about it 
since he was defeated by LEONARDO.  Satisfied?   
     What does a fighter fight for?  I mean, the crowds don't give a hoot if someone 
gets killed.  Not after four more fights.  What if they had a fight and nobody showed 
up?  I'd be out of a job, that's what!!!   
     I really didn't, you know, study when I was a kid.  Who would've guessed I'd be 
a famous Spyreporter?  I'm getting tired of writing this stuff, so I'm calling it 
quits.  Remember you guys, ease up sometimes!  Chill out!  Later, Debby Tonte

Vanilla -- I don't see it.  Pick, I mean, him being so hot about "plain vanilla."
Scratches always show on white and cream.  I think you should get some, I don't know,
chocolate or cinnamon (that would look like rust spots) or something like that.  Much
more practical. -- Bent Fender, very cinnamon

Runna Damill -- Well, you should go back to Damill and run it, then, shouldn't you?
Do the job that's nearest and so on. -- Riquettie

Average Joe -- Wow, does this mean that I'm ABOVE average?  Cool! -- Dasher

Vito -- Oh.  Darn.  I thought I'd established a pattern or bias with that first win.
Guess not, huh.  Darn. -- Pickel Upson

Leonardo -- Wow, you want me to MODEL for you?  Great!  I always thought I'd be good
at something artistic like modelling.  Lead me to it. -- Connie Pakkit

Vanilla -- (cautiously)  I don't THINK I'm kosher, but how can I be sure? -- Pickel
Upson
P.S.  But I'm a Ford, does that help?

Average Joe -- Well, feel free to come back any time, I don't mind another win!  But
if YOU want to win, I've got some teammates that should be right in your parking lot.
-- Riquettie

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

RSI is now taking rollups for a slow version of the No-Tournament arena.  Send your
rollup to RSI listing the arena as "Slow No Tournament".  Sign and send in the
following pledge:

* I pledge that I will not send warriors from this team to a Tournament, nor will I
  use a Tournament prize on a warrior from this team.
* I pledge to run a full team when I run turns in this arena.  If circumstances
  preclude my running less than a full team I will notify the Player Committee.
* I agree to abide by the decisions of the Player Committee.
* I understand that any warrior that participates in a Tournament shall be sent to

  the Dark Arena until they are dead.
* I understand that any warrior that receives a Tournament prize shall be send to the
  Dark Arena until they are dead.

The following are the rules for joining this No-Tournament arena

1.  No tournament play (Dead tournament or otherwise)
2.  One team per manager
3.  Team starts with new rollup (or a zero fight equivalent team is transferred into
    this arena.)
4.  No tourney prizes allowed to modify warriors in the arena
5.  20 teams required, per RSI
6.  Waivers are required to allow self-regulation on tourney ban, granting RSI
    authority to Dark Arena any warrior that participates in a Tournament (until the
    warrior is dead.)
7.  Rotating council to enforce tourney ban and maintain arena integrity.

Hammer will be the focal point for this arena's Player Committee.
