                                      SPY REPORT

     The sages err'd not in their foretelling of a god descending upon SUNSET, for I, 
Novgorodny Vir, have returned!  GRIM FANDANGO after a sorry 1-4-0 might want to 
consider abandoning the sands and taking up singing the 'Can't fight no more' blues!  
What's a move up by 8 you ask?  (alright, maybe you didn't ask)  Cause for 
celebration, according to XTINCTION.  Say what you will about blind luck and dirty 
fighting, but BIG LAKE TERROR will tell you 34-33-4 is nothing to laugh at...  
Practice pays for LARA CROFT, who pummelled DAUNT CANARY, to pocket 17 points.  
SPARHAWK certainly had a baffled expression on his face, after losing to OAK and 
losing 13 points in the process!  Duelmaster DAGGERMOUTH from RAGING LORDS is going 
for the gold, as he challenged WAR ZONE's BERLIN.  Ooh, the excitement!  DAGGERMOUTH 
successfully staved off a grab for the roses by BERLIN of WAR ZONE.  Does SUNSET have 
no one talented enough to dethrone him?  Word has it one team in SUNSET is taking 
speech lessons to try to bore their opponent to death.  I'll bet it works.   
     And how sociable are SUNSET's warriors?  Come, let us see.  Like the noble eagle 
soaring amongst the mountaintops, so stand the warriors of KANO CLAN, alone and 
unchallenged.  Like a pup with its tail between its legs, NOMADIC TRIBE scurried away 
from KANO CLAN.  Oh, the shame!  Is it charming personality?  Conversational 
abilities?  Good oral hygiene?  Whatever it is, -10 ATTACK is the most challenged 
warrior.  Place your bets!  DARK DREAM is the long shot of the week:  they challenged 
JACK PIPE, up by 29.  The gods smiled upon DARK DREAM, in its upset fight against 
JACK PIPE.  DARK DREAM gets a win, 29 points, and a free drink on me.  (Next week, 
OK?) PERICLES challenged -10 ATTACK!  Who says BLOOD AND SAND are just a bunch of 
wimps!  PERICLES of BLOOD AND SAND kept his wits as he was overcame by -10 ATTACK.   
     Ah, the duel!  The roar of the oppenent, the smell of the crowd!  Citizens of 
SUNSET, be sure to settle your debts with AXL-WADE of PHILTHBALLS.  He's relocating 
to the Dark Arena and has other things on his mind!  CRAZY CANARY of CARNAGE CANARIES 
sends MUTABA TOI of KANO CLAN goes to the Weary Warrior's Retirement Home.  SUNSET 
has no place for weaklings!  Ponder the possibilities, SUNSET:  AMBER has allowed 
BERLIN of WAR ZONE to kill GERARD unchallenged!  Is there no honour left???  Never 
one to advocate diplomacy and restraint, I was pleased to see DEAD LEGENDS retaliate 
against BIG LAKE TERROR in bloodfeud!  Oh hard!  that to strike a flame, the match 
itself must needs be wasting!   
     All good things must come to an end.  As if buffeted by forces of nature beyond 
my control, I must take my leave of this place.  Can anything compare to the pleasure 
of writing Spyreports for SUNSET?  On that giddy note I take my leave-- Novgorodny 
Vir

Ben's Bazaar -- The only thing I find bizarre is how you've managed to stay above 40%.  
Hey aren't you the guy who played the bear on Grizzly Adams? -- Shadowthrone, mgr 
Malazan Empire

Blood and Sand -- Too bad most of the blood seems to be yours. -- Shadowthrone

Nomadic Tribe -- You've had a good run, now it's time to break down the tents, pack 
your camels and head out. -- Shadowthrone

Tomcats -- Here puss, puss! -- Shadowthrone

Scorpio -- I can't tolerate anyone who would call themselves 'Scorpio'.  What is your 
team so that I may commence grinding them beneath my heel? -- Shadowthrone

Xtinction -- Soon to become xtinced. -- Shadowthrone

Den -- It has been more than two decades since I fought along side you and Bill in the 
great Delarq Tor wars.  Perhaps you don't remember as you were old even then? I still 
hold fond memories of the dismantling of Doc Steele and his cadre of simpletons.  Sad 
to see such a fun arena gone.  Anyhow, good to see some old faces here. -- 
Shadowthrone

Malazan Empire -- Welcome to Sunset, Jewel of the Delarquan Federation!  First round's 
on us at the Broken Bone post-fights! -- Grim Fandango

Tomcats, Celestial Wrath, Firestorm, Amber, Dead Legends, Snow Fort -- Great to see 
all of you back in action as well.  Don't let some early losses discourage you!  
Competition is rough here but worth it! -- Stik and G.F.

DM Daggermouth -- With a mouth like that, who needs another weapon?   Congrats on the 
throne, now write us a column if you haven't bitten your tongue off! -- Grim Fandango

LPs Nick Seafort and Park Pace -- Belated congrats on your immortality! -- Grim 
Fandango

And, no TV's from the Face-to-Face, but lotsa guys piling up extra FE...look out!

Dang Low -- How it took you that long to beat me, and you got that record, is beyond 
me... -- Grindstone

Quasar -- Did you really think I sucked that bad??  Suck on THAT... -- Punksure

Pac-Man -- What the hell, I thought I had a shot.  Guess not. -- Riplee

Jet Blak heads to the DA...sucks when a great rollup just refuses to win, had a few of 
those here over the years.  We really didn't need another striker anyhow, right?  
Right.... -- Stik

Scorpio -- Tell me simpleton, what is it like to walk the streets and byways of Sunset 
and be recognized by all as the greatest idiot the land has ever seen?  What kind of 
pathetic loser gets a warrior killed and does not even bother to bloodfeud?  There 
will be a special place for you in the nervous hospital where you can hold yourself 
and rock back and forth wondering about everything you don't currently understand, 
which is indeed everything. -- Den

Sunset -- It is always a pleasure to recognize those teams that did so well last turn.  
How about DRI and their inspiring 1-4?  Does that stand for Dumb Retarded Idiots?  
Tomcats posted a winless turn last cycle, that is awesome, meow! Maybe the catsuit was 
a little too tight. Blood and Sand went 1-3 and leaving a whole lot of their blood on 
the sand, you guys really should pick a new name and maybe that would change your 
luck, like maybe Run and Hide?  Ben's Bazaar posted a single win, I am sure in his 
family that warrants a trophy.  Good for you.  Looking forward to highlighting your 
achievements next turn. -- Den

General Ikillu -- Congrats on the throne, always nice to see it remain the AA's hands.  
Looks like you have the personnel in position to hold it for several turns until my 
Dark Dream and Dark Awakening arrive so you can hand it off.  What a great alliance we 
have. -- Den

   The Turf Wars are coming. The Turf Wars are coming. Come one; come all. Gather

your alliance or collection of 2-4 teams and join in the competition. Hurry up! While 
Feb 2016 seems so far away, it is only six or so turns away, and it does take a while 
to make sure you have a team in DM47, communicate to find a group, send in certs, 
announce in writing in DM47, etc. etc. Teams of all levels and managers of all types, 
including newbies, find themselves competing quite well in this type of competition. 
Let's make the tenth anniversary (TWX) the biggest and best ever.
     This 10th competition will be hosted and moderated by the triumvirate of Assur, 
Master Darque and Oz The All-Wonderful.    
     Anyone may participate: known alliances, new alliances, or temporary alliances 
created solely to compete in the Turf War!  

To participate, each alliance must:
    a.  Announce the Captain of the alliance in the North Fork (DM 47) newsletter.
    b.  Indicate in the newsletter which Captain/alliance you will join.
    c.  Announcements made on the D2 Forums or elsewhere will not be accepted.

Captains are responsible for:
    a.  Verifying/authorizing, in the North Fork newsletter those who wish to 
        participate under the banner of their alliance. The confirmation/verification 
        must occur after, or in the same newsletter, but not before, the participant's 
        declaration. (Lack of participant indication of joining and/or subsequent lack 
        of Captain confirmation will delay a team's participation in the Turf War.)
    b.  Distribution of prizes should their alliance win the Turf War.
    c.  Submit two (2) RSI Roll-Up Certificates to participate. (Note: Captains may, 
        if they wish, submit certs for all potential members of their alliance.)

Participating managers who are not Captains must:
    a.  Submit two (2) RSI Roll-Up Certificates to participate (Unless already 
        submitted by Captain. Note: extras will not be returned, but will go into the 
        winning pool of prizes.)
    b.  Announce their intent to compete with manager name, team name, and alliance 
        they will represent in the North Fork (DM 47) newsletter. Announcement made on 
        the D2 Forums or Chatzy will not be accepted.
        1.  No scores will be tabulated until two RSI Gift Certificates are received, 
            and participant indication and captain confirmation are posted in the 
            North Fork newsletter. NO EXCEPTIONS.
        2.  Before a manager can compete, he/she must declare themselves in the North 
            Fork (DM 47) newsletter as stated above AND be verified in the same or 
            subsequent newsletter by the alliance Captain they will represent.
        3.  Only one (1) team per player may compete.  No arena multiple teams or 
            aliases will be allowed.  Violations will result in immediate manager 
            disqualification (including team point adjustments) from the Turf War (so 
            be sure to take any multiple teams OFF of Team Maintenance and be certain 
            not to run any other team warriors).
        4.  Scoring will NOT be retroactive for teams/alliances that do not properly 
            declare or get captain confirmation or fail to send a Gift Certificate by 
            Turn 1.  In other words, if your Gift Certificate is not received until 
            Turn 3 of the Turf War, and you have fought on Turns 1 and 2, your score 
            will not begin until Turn 3.  All conditions must be met before scoring 
            will begin--declaration, verification, and Gift Certificate received.
        5.  No declarations or verifications will be accepted after Turn 3 of the Turf 
            War.

For purposes of scoring, the moderators will score the Turf War and settle any and all 
disputes as they arise.  Their decisions will be final. (Note: the intent is to have a 
very thorough set of rules so that few decisions, if any, are required from the 
moderators.)

Scoring will be as follows for Fights:

Team Points:
    a.  Fights made: (includes DA fights) 
            1 = 0 points,  2 = 0 points,  3 = 1 point,  4 = 3 points,  5 = 5 points
    b.  Wins earned: 
            1 = 1 point,  2 = 3 points,  3 = 6 points,  4 = 10 points,  5 = 15 points
    c.  Champion win = 3 additional points 
    d.  Down Challenge = (-5) points each (DM is exempt from DC rule)
    e.  Team with most wins per round earns 4 additional points
            (If ties, no points awarded)

Alliance Points (Rounds 1 through 5):
    a.  Fights made (DA fights count as a fight made)
            All (each) team of the alliance fights 1 to 3 warriors = 3 points
            All (each) team fights 4+ warriors = 6 points
            All (each) team fights all five warriors = 9
    b.  Alliance with most wins per that round = 5 points
            (If tied, no points awarded.)

Alliance Points (Rounds 6 through 10 as alliance point scoring doubles):
    c.  Fights made (DA fights count as a fight made)
            All (each) team of the alliance fights 1 to 3 warriors = 6 points
            All (each) team fights 4+ warriors = 12 points
            All (each) team fights all five warriors = 18
    d.  Alliance with most wins per that round = 10 points
    e.  (If tied, no points awarded.)
   
Champions:
    a.  A Champion may be declared, but one is not mandatory. It is to the 
        team's/alliance's advantage that you do so.
    b.  Only one Champion allowed per manager at any given time.
    c.  Champions that graduate or are killed by another warrior or the Dark Arena, 
        may be replaced.
    d.  Champions must have fought at least one previous fight in the North Fork (DM47 
        arena) to be able to be declared a champion. 
    e.  A Champion can be declared on any round and point factors will begin that same 
        turn. (Must meet above 4 conditions prior to declaring.)
    f.  Challenges to or by Champions against members of the same alliance shall be 
        scored as a loss for each warrior.

     No warrior may be substituted without the proper use of the DA or arena death or 
death in a tournament or graduation. A maximum of five warriors may be on a team at 
any time. (The penalty for such substitution is -10 points.) 

     It is not in the spirit of competition to challenge fellow members of the same 
alliance. Hence, challenges as such will be scored as losses for both warriors.

Downchallenges:
    a.  A downchallenge occurs when a warrior challenges a warrior with lesser 
        recognition points. 
    b.  No challenge or bloodfeud by The Duelmaster shall be deemed a downchallenge. 
    c.  No challenge of the Duelmaster shall be deemed a downchallenge.
    d.  Bloodfeuds against warriors with lesser recognition are deemed downchallenges.

Tournament Considerations:
    a.  Tournament participation is allowed and ENCOURAGED as a great form of 
        recognition for North Fork.
    b.  It is an opportunity to gain skills and preferred challenging within the Turf 
        War.

Special Considerations:
    a.  Each alliance begins the Turf War with zero (0) points.
    b.  There will be NO alliance or team changes once the contest has begun.  If you 
        begin the Turf War with Alliance A, you must end the Turf War with Alliance A.  
        If you begin the Turf War with Team A, you must end the Turf War with Team A.
    c.  There will be a maximum of four (4) teams/managers allowed per alliance for 
        the Turf War VII. The minimum is two (2).
    d.  The Dark Arena may be used at any time without penalty.
    e.  If at any time, the Moderators determine that any non-TW team in the arena is 
        aiding and/or abetting any TW alliance or team, the affected points won by the 
        gifted team/alliance will be disallowed and the aiding non-TW team will be 
        asked to desist from play in the arena until after the Turf War concludes.

Prizes:
     The Turf War is meant to be a "winner takes all" contest.  All prizes, except the 
Endu Award listed below, and 100% of the Gift Certificates will be awarded to the 
Captain of the winning alliance at the end of the competition.  It is the 
responsibility of the Captain to distribute Gift Certificates.  
     Moderators will submit a list of each manager on the winning alliance to RSI at 
the completion of the contest for the non-Certificate prizes.
     All entry fees (rollup certs) are awarded to the winning alliance.  
     The following prizes have been secured from RSI:

        b.  Renaming of all Dark Arena Monsters 
        c.  Known Favorites for one DM47 warrior on each team of the winning alliance 
            (warrior must be ranked Initiate or above, must be alive, and must have at 
            least one DM47 arena fight to receive this award).
        d.  +1 Skill bonus (three) for each manager on the winning alliance.  Bonus 
            potions must be applied to living warriors from DM 47, no more than two 
            skills per warrior.
        e.  +1 Skill bonus potion (one) for each and every individual manager who 
            fights in all 10 rounds AND at least 45 fights of the Turf War.  Bonus 
            potion must be applied to a living warrior from (DM 47) (Endu Award).
        f.  Two additional random rollup sheets or rollup certs for each manager of 
            the winning alliance from RSI.
     These RSI awards will be listed by the Moderator for claiming from RSI (Lee)
