                                      SPY REPORT

     I was going on vacation, see?  Surf, sun...  But what do those bums say?  "Hit 
the road, Debby Tonte.  KATI-TEI needs a spyreport."  Oh, well.  Too bad, WRECKING 
CREW, but WANDERERS was just too good to be stopped.  WANDERERS like really fought 
hard to move up to 1st from 4th.  Way to go!  Cut this out and put it in your 
scrapbooks, MEDAL OF HONOR 26!  'Cause they got 3-1-0 and moved up to 3rd!  MVP award 
for GRUNT 1?  MEDAL OF HONOR 26's proud of him after beating PAINFIRE and getting 16 
points.  Talk about yer major upsets!  PAINFIRE's match with GRUNT 1 cost him a loss 
of 7 points!  Oh, wow, like the Duelmaster must be the most popular beast in all 
KATI-TEI.  It got the most challenges.  (But what about proposals?) Was that a tear I 
saw in DEATH'S DOORMAN's eye, as he took over Duelmastership?  And wasn't SKIN ZESTER 
fit to be tied!  Who was the wiseguy that said KATI-TEI's Duelmaster was paying for 
drinks at The Warty Toad?  Don't look at me!   
     I gotta admit I haven't been in "deep con caves" with any spies.  Really, I just 
wing this stuff.  MEDAL OF HONOR 26 was the most avoided team.  Is a 68-31-5 record 
really that scary?  Hhmph!  What kind of warriors are THE PLAGUE?  MEDAL OF HONOR 26, 
an easy team to beat if I ever saw one, can't get them to accept an invitation!   
     What does a fighter fight for?  I mean, the crowds don't give a hoot if someone 
gets killed.  Not after four more fights.  Fight, fight, fight.  Is that all you guys 
can do?   
     I really didn't, you know, study when I was a kid.  Who would've guessed I'd be 
a famous Spyreporter?  I know how much you like reading this stuff, but I really 
should stop.  Remember you guys, ease up sometimes!  Chill out!  Later, Debby Tonte

Sorry folks, my ads vanished last turn....  I am sure you are all broken up!!! --
Reaper

Leeta -- Geez, I guess having the "I manager master of all destinies conversation"
with the troops helps.  Congrats on the 4-1-1.... -- Reaper
P.S.  I gotta work on the bullying the stable speech....

Khalhums Dwarf -- You have something to say for yourself....  I have never seen that
happen before.  Medal of Honor is gonna be pissed with you. -- Reaper
P.S.  Turn 500 Dawn of the Dwarf.

William Crawford -- Yawn.  Dude, I have not changed my setup in the three times I
have met you.  You are gonna get killed eventually....  I am knacky in my hit
location. -- Death's Doorman

Zester -- I am coming for you!!!! -- Death's Doorman

Valgard -- Hmmmm...if I went on a carriage ride with you I might feel bad cracking
you in the head.  I just can't live with the regrets. --  Reign Of Blades

Hammerjack -- Well met. --  Reign Of Blades
P.S.  Still wondering where your stable got its name.

Painfire -- Sigh...the beginning is so cruel...1-1. -- Blinded By Knowing

Dominator -- What are you trying to do, uphold the reputation of Shews as not being
the sharpest knife in the drawer?  I sincerely hope you have tourney fights hidden
somewhere about your person to make that a LITTLE less reckless. -- Quinore
P.S.  Nobody should have an undefeated record.  It's an offense against the gods.

Whoa!  Who's been feeding the Ambitious Guard red meat?  He's getting dangerous! --
Valgard

I don't think this was a PROPER Fratsfan Noble, because he was even shorter than I
am, and his hair was just kind of dust colored.  Everybody knows the real Fratsfan
Nobles are tall and golden blond. -- Chericille

I don't get the big deal about "cult members."  Where do you draw the line between a
cult and a non-cult congregation, anyway? -- Forandin the Puzzled

Well, gee, I didn't MEAN to kill the Fratsfan Noble.  I didn't realize he was so
fragile! -- Rambling Ox

Rambling Ox -- You idiot!  Had it not been for you, I would have been in much better
condition for my NEXT match and would have been able to give a better account of
myself. -- Pelhirion Teej, Noble of Fratsfa
P.S.  In fact, if I hadn't needed the resurrection fee in a hurry, I wouldn't have
FOUGHT a second time.

Forandin -- You were disrespectful.  We frown on this. -- Garvol of the Cult of the
Lady of the Northern Wave
P.S.  That means, next time, either lose of make a donation to our temple.

Chericille -- My dear woman, naturally I permitted you to win in this instance.  It
was the only gentlemanly thing to do, and I am always a gentleman. -- Pelhirion Teej,
Noble of Fratsfa

Valgard -- Ha!  I KNEW I could make that work if I just kept trying.  Proof!  Thanks.
-- Moro Sullogra, Ambitious Guard and what's wrong with that?

Soldier 1 -- I suppose I should have known better than to come anywhere near a
soldier, shouldn't I?  Some things don't change. -- Marga Porlan, formerly Virginal
Concubine

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
