                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
KYR'TERR brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Of course, we're all terribly 
impressed to see FAIZUN GOTE win a fight and gain 18 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, 
FAIZUN GOTE beat MESSY MONGREL and MESSY MONGREL lost 11 points.  You're breakin' my 
heart.  And if variety is the spice of life, KYR'TERR may be getting bland, as 
BLOODBANE stays top dog in the city.  The Dripping Blade, humph!  I've tasted better 
ale at mortuaries.  Where do they get this stuff?  From KYR'TERR's trash dumps?   
     He who fights and runs away will live to fight another day, the coward.  
ENTENTER, 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 it looks like DOGS OF WAR avoided 
them the most this turn.  What a pack of would be losers, if you ask me.  Hmph.  Ooh, 
I'm frightfully impressed, PUPPY ON PATROL was this turn's most challenged warrior.  
Watch that ego swell, sports fans.  LES PAUL was challenged by one of DOGS OF WAR's 
warriors this turn, with PUPPY ON PATROL having a lead of 27 points going into the 
fight.  Question now is, will KYR'TERR accept this sort of tacky behavior?  PUPPY ON 
PATROL beating LES PAUL.  The insult, the....yech!  I guess I can give a little 
credit to WITCH of DOGS OF WAR for challenging up by 24 to KOOL GREEN.  WITCH lost to 
get 64 points of recognition.   
     Some people like volunteer work in the hospitals.  I volunteer for KYR'TERR's 
morgue.  More variety.  I could say I saw this coming, but so could anyone else.  
Anyway, this turn it came.  PHILIPH's 7-5-0 has earned him the Dark Arena.  Gee, THE 
MUSKETEERS, ain't it past due for sending EROS Dark Arena?  What took ol' '3-9-0' so 
long?  Hope?  Ha ha aha ha!  Whoa!  I'll even buy DEATH 2 a drink tonight!  Anyone 
who can come back from the Dark Arena, I want to be on hers good side!  Honor is like 
a chainmail shirt, it only shines through use.  Certain nameless cowards will 
doubtless rebuke me on this one.   
     There's got to be a better place in KYR'TERR to get a drink than The Dripping 
Blade!  Any suggestions?  Phlllt!  Just had to do that before I leave the fine city 
of KYR'TERR.  I feel much better now.  I see the crowds are getting restless, I must 
leave now-- Snide Clemens

Xerxes -- It's your eckses.  They're a handicap.  Er, to you.  To me, well, they look
like a sawbuck, and I just set to work. -- Benito Chatte

Hmm.  There are literally dozens of self-proclaimed Mordant Deserters scattered
around Alastari.  I wonder what that says about Mordant, eh? -- Halda Impola

Le Pue -- Outflown by an overgone mosquito?  Horrors!  What is the world coming to?
-- Dorine Eagel

Mindee -- You Alastarians have had it IN for us Rirorni ever since the war.  Talk
about unfair!  I was a KID back then! -- Jole Kangour, not a veteran of the Rirorni
War

Huh, that's a new one.  The Persistent Beggar, an Aruaki Werecat, rubbed his head
against my hand and purred, and when I didn't give him some money right away, he bit
me! -- Faizun Gote

Impulse -- Well, for you, I will make the attempt.  Although I would prefer to drop
from exhaustion rather than serious wounds.  I don't really trust those people in the
Infirmary. -- Dorine Eagel

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

RSI is now taking rollups for a slow version of the No-Tournament arena.  Send your
rollup to RSI listing the arena as "Slow No Tournament".  Sign and send in the
following pledge:

* I pledge that I will not send warriors from this team to a Tournament, nor will I
  use a Tournament prize on a warrior from this team.
* I pledge to run a full team when I run turns in this arena.  If circumstances
  preclude my running less than a full team I will notify the Player Committee.
* I agree to abide by the decisions of the Player Committee.
* I understand that any warrior that participates in a Tournament shall be sent to
  the Dark Arena until they are dead.
* I understand that any warrior that receives a Tournament prize shall be send to the
  Dark Arena until they are dead.

The following are the rules for joining this No-Tournament arena

1.  No tournament play (Dead tournament or otherwise)
2.  One team per manager
3.  Team starts with new rollup (or a zero fight equivalent team is transferred into
    this arena.)
4.  No tourney prizes allowed to modify warriors in the arena
5.  20 teams required, per RSI
6.  Waivers are required to allow self-regulation on tourney ban, granting RSI
    authority to Dark Arena any warrior that participates in a Tournament (until the
    warrior is dead.)
7.  Rotating council to enforce tourney ban and maintain arena integrity.

Hammer will be the focal point for this arena's Player Committee.
