                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly JURINE games.  Former top team FEAR FACTORY was 
unseated this week as CLAN GHOST BEARS moved up from 3rd ranking to take the top spot 
with a 3-2-1 record for the round.  CITIZEN CAPET caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested THE USEROUS MERCHANT and was awarded 
16 points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, SCYTHE put down 
CHILLILI CHES, causing her to lose 1 points of recognition in the process.  Due to 
hers absence and inability to defend the throne, AMAZONIA has lost the title of 
Duelmaster.  The city has turned out in honor of CHILLILI CHES, for with hers arena 
victory she may now lay claim to the highest position in the city!  Heed this!  A 
seer has warned that if exactly 6 die in duels this week, the whole city shall 
perish!  Just remember...5 or 7!   
     But come now, let us look deeper into the maze of contention and crossed blades 
that is city JURINE.  I saw one fighter that warriors avoided when this week's 
challenge seeking began.  FEAR FACTORY is feared.  This much I can say.  Methinks 
more than a few here could name the guild it was that spent the better part of last 
week avoiding FEAR FACTORY.  Indeed it was CLAN GHOST BEARS.   
     What warrior does not hone his years, impatiently waiting for the moment of his 
foe's mortality?  Some say a warrior is judged by the way he bears arms.  One thing 
is sure, better a dagger in hand then a sword on the belt!   
     The girls are as pretty in JURINE as ever I remembered them....and the fighters 
as ugly!  Don't let your reputation slip!  More than a sharp eye must I keep, indeed 
a stout pair of legs must I keep as well!  The endless paths of Alastari await me!  
Till we meet again, remember:  a turtle walks slow, hides head in a shell, and harms 
no one; a lion runs to slay its prey.-- Zontani Sharp Eyes

Amazonia -- Whew!  That was close.  If you'd been less good, I'd be Duel2Dudette, and
very unhappy about it.  Thanks. -- Chillili Ches

Bernie -- I didn't sign on to fight bears, so you'll have to go with the "ghost" part
of your name. -- Laelkorissa

Amazonia -- No, I do not "deserve" to lose.  But since I would not be allowed to take
the title anyway, what is the point of fighting hard enough to win? -- Farroj Lal,
Master of Kung-Fu

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.
