                                      SPY REPORT

     Like the magnificent Sun, rising upon the Dawn and exiling the Night for a Day, 
I, Novgorodny Vir, return once again!  BEYOND THE PALE had cause to celebrate, after 
DACEANA LINZ got 15 points by beating PERSISTENT BEGGAR.  SELVUN certainly had a 
baffled expression on his face, after losing to DEVILISH ANGEL and losing 12 points 
in the process!  A certain someone saw SLICE at The Victory Tavern with the shakes, 
and now he fails to show up to defend his throne.  What a pathetic slob!  Now I can't 
insult TILARIN, as she has gloriously dueled to the top.  Oh great new Duelmaster!!!  
(Stop me if I lay it on too thick) Word has it one team in ZENSU is using psychics to 
predict wins.  They lead a charmed life!   
     So much to report, so little time!   
     The moving sword slashes, and having slashed, moves on...  Oh hard!  that to 
strike a flame, the match itself must needs be wasting!   
     All good things must come to an end.  As the seasons change, and the creatures 
of the wild change also, so do I feel a yearning to leave this place.  Like a mixed 
metaphor, and an overtaxed simile, I now bid ZENSU farewell-- Novgorodny Vir

Slice -- You believe in living up to your name, don't you?  Drat.  Do you realize how
HARD it will be to get the bloodstains out of my clothes?  This is totally the pits.
-- Tilarin

Stubby -- (heavy sigh)  I don't know what it is with Shews, but I've noticed a
tendency lately for Shews to knock me down and jump on me.  I have the most amazing
bruises! -- Dellis Linz
P.S.  Remember, I am not a butterfly, so you don't need to pin me to a display board.
Or the ground, of course.  Actually, if you offered me a chance to surrender, I'd
take it, if I had time before you hit me again.

Devilish Angel -- Who'd have thought you'd be ticklish THERE? -- Selvun

Ebola -- You and Sally Monella.  (sigh) -- Chuck Elvis
P.S.  I tried to serenade you from the Infirmary, but the orderlies came in and sat
on me.  The life of an artist is hard.

Blue Eyes -- Well, that's the pits. -- Ghost of Dacea Linz
P.S.  A curse....  How about:  If you go out in the rain, the blue of your eyes will
run, drip down your face, and stain your shirt.  Your orcishly generous body parts
will swell until you fall flat on your face.  Men, flocking to you, as those
aforementioned body parts cause, will lose all control and trample you in their
eagerness to get closer.  Or simply, may you trip and fall on your weapon.

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
