                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, in TRICORUS a quiet thief gets rich, but a quiet spymaster gets poor.  
So bring me ale and harken to my tidbits of news.  And let's see, KURBALD fought THE 
JONAH and gained 20 points and contributed to DARK HORSEMEN's 2-2-0.  THE JONAH has 
lost to KURBALD, falling 16 points, while helping make BLACK CONVENTICLE a 4-1-0 
turn.  Defending hers title for another turn, NEALA kept DARK HORSEMEN's warrior, 
AILLENDEI, from claiming the throne.  By the way, was that our Duelmaster that I saw 
last night, cramped under the table at The Silver Chalice?   
     Oriental wise man once say, 'Hiding behind shields prevents proper sun tanning.' 
Inscrutable, but true.  I also notice that the DARK HORSEMEN stable was the most 
avoided team this turn.  Come on TRICORUS, what are you afraid of?  And guess who 
avoided DARK HORSEMEN stable the most?  Believe it or not, it was AMAZON ELITE.  
Anyone surprised?  Well, sports fans, take notice that KURBALD from DARK HORSEMEN was 
TRICORUS' most challenged warrior this turn.   
     We only live a short time in this world, so why not take a sharp blade, and 
shave it close?  A farewell moment, if you please, DAPHNE of AMAZON ELITE has been 
sent to the Dark Arena, and was carried out on hers shield.  Is it really true that 
TRICORUS has more dishwashers per capita that fighters?  Just thought I'd ask...   
     Thought for the day, a new sword shines bright, but the notched sword sings the 
sweetest.  Always good to rest in TRICORUS, but never good to wear out my welcome.  
Look for me in future turns.  Until you see my quill in TRICORUS again, farewell-- 
Alarond the Scribe

Aillendei -- You are quite right about the death blow, as you saw fit to prove by
defeating me two turn in a row now--second time, sans death blow.  I get the point
already!  (A courtesy I might not extend to your comrade in our upcoming bloodfeud.)
-- Black Clansman
P.S.  It's not a cult, it's my nationality!  I hail from the Scottish Highlands of
Africa; you might have caught my accent in our previous bout.

Kurbald -- My teammates have not challenged yet because, quite frankly, they're
ascared of you; so we found ourselves an ambitious guardsman to fill in whilst they
brush up on their poetry to get more in touch with sensitive, feminine sides.... --
Warp Angel

Nick -- That was not an oversight; we just thought "sending your guy to pick on ours"
made for more colorful rhetoric than "accidentally kill our guy in a random match-
up."  Though, technically, just by submitting a turnsheet, you are indeed sending
your guys after us. -- The B.C.

Daphne -- I have no idea how I was able to pull that off, but thanks for the good
fight. -- The Jonah

Marskal -- Pay attention, young sir, getting the jump is what it's all about! -- Dark
Sweet Treat

Persistent Beggar -- Sorry about that; it was an accident; but hey, them's the
breaks, eh?  It seems wastes have a reputation for killing in this arena.... -- The
Shroud of Gloom

Neala -- Come for the title again, eh?  Go for it.  It isn't like it's doing me any
good. -- Galbei

Black Clamsman -- Do you find the black clams to be more edible?  I've always
regarded them as distinctly tricky. -- Aillendei

Dark River -- You're a pretty little thing!  If I defeat you, does that mean I get to
take you home with me? -- Kurbald

Dark Sweet Treat -- Are you sure you're supposed to be a guy? -- Marskol
P.S.  I was learning a lot from you, but that final blow to the head knocked all the
skills back out.  Darn.

Our congratulations to Kallie. -- Dark Horsemen

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.
