                                      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 AVALANCH LILY win a fight and gain 23 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, 
AVALANCH LILY beat DERWEAR and DERWEAR lost 19 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  
Due to absence, and inability to defend the throne, CLE has lost the Title of 
Duelmaster.  Start setting that alarm earlier!  And it's out with the old, in with 
the new, as AVALANCH LILY takes the Title and last week's bar tab from the old 
Duelmaster.  Heh, heh.  The Swinging Aardvark, humph!  I've tasted better ale at 
mortuaries.  Where do they get this stuff?  From AMEN-TEI's trash dumps?   
     My mother always told me, 'If you don't have anything nice to say, start 
talking.' I loved that woman.  What's the big D?  WAYFARERS was the most avoided 
team?  Bunch of lily livered... grumble... mumble... curse...  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.  And sending HENRICH to the Dark Arena was 
supposed to be one of your better ideas, 1949 YANKEES?  Three down, and one turn to 
go for WAYFARERS to call in the bloodfeud against HENRICH, else TOPPALGOR is but 
small history.  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.  Just wait 'till next time I show up 
here, I won't be so nice!  So nyaaah!  Glad to see the back of this place-- Snide

Cle -- Good for you!  Keep it up, hang onto that title! -- Avalanch Lily

Oh, heck, the Khalhums Dwarf.  I really wasn't ready for him, you know.  Really not.
-- Slippery

Heinrich -- I suppose it's because you're short that you feel you have to be
masterful?  I wish you wouldn't.  Sure, you won the fight, but that isn't the same
thing, and you just don't have the knack of "masterful." -- Tom-Tom Tora

Berra -- It's a yoga thing, right?  I never did figure out how anybody does that

stuff. -- Valnakaur
P.S.  I mean, crossing your ankles behind your head?  I not only don't know HOW, I
don't know WHY anybody does it.

Well, at least the Beggar was Polite.  I suppose that's something. -- Lennalgire
P.S.  But I didn't expect him to be a dwarf.

Lennalgire -- Your lack of generosity does not become you, but it is about what we
expect of a Fratsfan.  Beware, you make enemies with your attitude. -- Haldor
Ironfoot, Beggar in Good Standing

Slippery -- Greasing yourself before the fight is a low trick. -- Gorlok Bonecrusher,
Khalhums Dwarf

Derwear -- I hardly knew where to look!  You could at least put a robe over that. --
Karlirann of Murska, Noble Assassin

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
