                                      SPY REPORT

     Like the magnificent Sun, rising upon the Dawn and exiling the Night for a Day, 
I, Novgorodny Vir, return once again!  HANNA BARBARIANS had cause to celebrate, after 
HONG KONG PHOOEY got 25 points by beating CANON.  A certain someone should cut down 
on the drinking and practice more, after losing 15 points to VORGAN TEN TALH.  
(Discrete enough, SANDMAN?) A certain someone saw GREEN DISEASE at The Crystal Wheel 
with the shakes, and now he fails to show up to defend his throne.  What a pathetic 
slob!  Now I can't insult SPALDING, as he has gloriously dueled to the top.  Oh great 
new Duelmaster!!!  (Stop me if I lay it on too thick) Word has it one team in DAYLA 
KIV is using psychics to predict wins.  They lead a charmed life!   
     A Zenmaster once told me, 'Does not the spinning wheel turn?  And do not the 
little birds cry out?'  Any ideas?  Like the noble eagle soaring amongst the 
mountaintops, so stand the warriors of INSIGNIFICANCE, alone and unchallenged.  Like 
a pup with its tail between its legs, HANNA BARBARIANS scurried away from 
INSIGNIFICANCE.  Oh, the shame!   
     Is there life after death?  Pragmatics (and warriors) know there is death after 
life!  The audience gave a nice round of rasberries to KRISSARA of SAND DANCERS, for 
expiring in such an ungraceful fashion.  8-6-0, indeed!  Oh hard!  that to strike a 
flame, the match itself must needs be wasting!   
     Leave me now, you base fools!  More important duties call me.  Can anything 
compare to the pleasure of writing Spyreports for DAYLA KIV?  On that giddy note I 
take my leave-- Novgorodny Vir

Ah, four standbys in five fights.  This is going to be thrilling, I can tell. --
Jorja, Sand Dancers
P.S.  Especially since we choose not to talk to the standbys today.

Comatose -- I guess with that name, we shouldn't expect a personal comment from you?
(sigh)  Such is life.  At least you survived, so it IS life and not death. -- Dolby
Klee

It comes to our attention that last time the standbys wrote personals to US.  Well,
we thank them, but, really, we're just to burned out today to answer. -- the Sand

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
