                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
AMEN-TEI brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Of course, we're all terribly 
impressed to see LENNALGIRE win a fight and gain 16 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, 
BERRA beat VALNAKAUR and VALNAKAUR lost 2 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  And if 
variety is the spice of life, AMEN-TEI may be getting bland, as CLE stays top dog in 
the city.  The Swinging Aardvark, humph!  I've tasted better ale at mortuaries.  
Where do they get this stuff?  From AMEN-TEI's trash dumps?   
     Well, let's take a look at some more misdeeds of you miserable sword-boys.  
WAYFARERS, I suppose you'll be glad to know you were this turn's most avoided team.  
Care to know who is the most afraid of you?  And who led the way in this mass act of 
cowardice?  Let's see, well, whatcha know?  It was UN.  Ha ha ha ha!   
     Ah, now we come to my favorite part, where we see all the guys who are dead and 
gone, and get to see if their team cared.  Titanium shields and bamboo daggers, guess 
what brave team is developing these kinds of weapons?   
     I was about to buy a new quill pen the other day, but some fighter took it for 
an epee.  Forgive me for writing with a dagger.  Phlllt!  Just had to do that before 
I leave the fine city of AMEN-TEI.  I feel much better now.  I see the crowds are 
getting restless, I must leave now-- Snide Clemens

Cle -- Thank the gods!  I was having trouble finding things to say!  Take the title
and welcome. -- Avalanch Lily

The "Honest" Merchant?  Oh, ha! -- Tom-Tom Tora

Well, Tora may have been a bit hard-nosed about it, you know how orcs are, I think
the Merchant is probably honest enough.  He just doesn't teach worth a darn. --

What's the good of a polite beggar? -- Valnakaur

Ed. -- It's also a moderately repulsive object.  Throw a napkin over it. -- Avalanch
Lily

     Then you have a repulsively soaked napkin, which may not be an improvement. --

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
