                                      SPY REPORT

     Ready for some action-packed adventure, some thrills, chills and spills?  Well 
fergit it, cause this is the Spyreport for RODEKI.  MVP award for QUICK DEAD HAMMER?  
KLK RANGE HAMMERZ's proud of her after beating ACELESS DEUCER and getting 25 points.  
Talk about yer big time losers!  WINKY DINK got smashed by CELIE SHATTERSTONE, and 
lost 10 points!  Don't you think the Duelmaster is being unfair?  I think JOCKSTRAP 
JONES should let M. CHARDINEE be Duelmaster for a while, without fighting about it.  
Who was the wiseguy that said RODEKI's Duelmaster was paying for drinks at The 
Swinging Aardvark?  Don't look at me!   
     Look, you guys stick to fighting, all right?  BEASTIAL LEGION was RODEKI's most 
avoided team.  Is there some award for that?  Hhmph!  What kind of warriors are COLOR 
ME SUAVE?  BEASTIAL LEGION, an easy team to beat if I ever saw one, can't get them to 
accept an invitation!  Like, is ROCKSOCK popular, or what?  It was challenged the 
most in all of RODEKI!  It's got a 11-18-0, is that good?  Speaking of challenging 32 
points above did you hear about DELAWARE RUN of COLOR ME SUAVE vs. DELVERS' ROCKSOCK? 
(And how was that intro!) Like, was that some fighting on DELAWARE RUN's part, or 
what?  And he got 27 points out of it!  (besides getting in my report)  Poor 
ROCKSOCK.   
     Man, all these warriors dying and killing each other!  Don't you guys ever give 
it a break?  I'm always kinda bummed when a decent warrior gets killed.  ACELESS 
DEUCER, of COLOR ME SUAVE had a 10-2-0 when he got bumped off by QUICK DEAD HAMMER.  
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'm getting tired of writing this stuff, so I'm calling it 
quits.  I had a fun time, see you later-- Debby Tonte

All -- If I'm silent for a while, it's because my wife recently gave birth to our
third son on January 23.  He's been in the NICU since; he's recovering, but we're
still awaiting the day he gets to come home.  If any of you wants updates, I'm
keeping a blog at http://nashvillebecker.livejournal.com.  If you don't, that's fine.
When things return to some normalcy, I'll return to my normal talkative self.  Until
then, my efforts belong elsewhere.  God bless. -- Jim (Suave)

     Congratulations and all the best for the sprout to come home soon, happy and
     healthy! -- Ed.

Jockstrap Jones -- So glad to hand off the title to you!  I'm just not up for it.  Of
course, you aren't either, but that isn't MY problem. -- Fredibar
P.S.  Amazing how much more decisive I feel now.  I shall go straight away and order
coffee!  LOTS of coffee.

Winky Dink -- Gods, you're disgusting! -- Christellina
P.S.  And very forward.  Just because you're shorter than I am doesn't mean you
should be putting your hands, uh, "there."  And get your nose out of my cleavage!
You damned Fratsfans have no couth at all.

Aceless Deucer -- Yeahyeahyeah, not today.  I'm busy. -- Rackaboy

Chip -- You must, as they say, "Take that."  The rest of the team seems to be taking
time off for some peculiar rite of generation, leaving me to uphold our win-loss
percentage.  I do what I can, but one golem can only do so much. -- Rocksock

Nitemare Nonbeliever -- Uh...yes, whatever.  Talk to me about it later, I'm really
busy. -- Celie Shatterstone

Aceless Deucer -- Well, I didn't know what came next, either.  So I just went with
the pattern.  That's what we learn those things for, isn't it? -- Rackaboy

Scaddie -- Clay golems, yes, but I am, obviously, not one of them. -- Rocksock
P.S.  Didn't you ever wonder what happens to all those socks that go missing in the
laundry?

Winky Dink -- Ah, okay.  Everyone should have a hobby. -- Celie Shatterstone

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
