                                      SPY REPORT

     Three teams this turn made strong bids for what I call the best turn performance.  
For me, the choice was obvious, but others would certainly give a different opinion.  
I'm ok with them being wrong!  No question in my mind it goes to NUMBERS GAME.  
Perhaps some would call it a strange choice, given that they only went 2-0-1 in 
regular arena fights.  But when I can highlight three of their fights, the choice 
becomes obvious to me.  The most important fight of the turn (the title fight) had 
ARSON against NINE-TAILED FOX in a classic Striker vs. Lunger match.  After two 
minutes, skill overcame experience and NINE-TAILED FOX is our new Duelmaster.
     In the second fight I wish to highlight today, ELUSIVE 12TH faced the young HAT 
PIN.  And while that HAT PIN has been deadly in the past, today it is just a memory, 
killed by the more experienced ELUSIVE 12TH.  And finally, the clincher: NUMBERS GAME 
sent two warriors to the Dark Arena this turn.  Normally that wouldn't be news.  But 
when one of those fights results in a Stone Golem kill, I take notice.  That Stone 
Golem is one mean customer.  311 viciously butchered STONE GOLEM in ONE MINUTE!!!  I 
always love to see where Dark Arena victors fight the next turn!!!
     On another day, I would have given the top recognition to AVENGERS.  4-1 with 3 
awards is plenty impressive.  SPECTRUM is our current top undefeated warrior at 3-0.  
ADIOS AMIGO tried to get kill #4 in a challenge victory over QUEEN OF THE NORTH (who 
was our most challenged warrior this turn).  A great turn for the AVENGERS.  Keep the 
throne or get that kill and I'd be talking about you all day long.
     The final team that deserves more than a small mention is HELP WANTED.  We 
welcome them back to the sands, though perhaps most of the rest of you aren't all that 
enthousiastic about it after seeing what they did.  A perfect 5-0 return!  Can't argue 
with perfection, even if it was helped by facing two stand ins.  Welcome back, I'm 
sure I'll be talking about your warriors more in the near future.
     The final fight I wanted to mention today was MOTHER LODE versus DR. SOX.  MOTHER 
LODE has scummed its way up the ranks and was looking at another easy victory, going 
after a bad lunger.  What do you mean DR. SOX wins in 2 minutes?!?  That isn't 
supposed to happen!  I didn't even think about watching that fight, thinking I'd seen 
it all before.  MOTHER LODE led the rest of the Total Parries to an 0-3 turn record, 
too.  I'm sure it is just a blip, but it does make for an interesting blip; Total 
Parries still have the best ten turn record.
     Another interesting fact, in 17 fights, only 6 ended in 1 minute.  Ok, maybe not 
interesting, but not typical!  6 DA's, 36 total warriors, and 7 of the regular fights 
were challenges (no bloodfeuds).  
     15 of the 30 warriors not fighting in the Dark Arena issued avoids.  The inactive 
LANGUAGE BARRIER received the most avoids, followed closely by THE STORM REAVERS and 
USEFUL WEAPONS.  BASH BROS OCEAN avoided LANGUAGE BARRIER the most.
     I had a lot of fun this turn.  Probably I'm just awed with actually getting to 
see a Stone Golem fall and have let that excitement color my memory of the boredom of 
the rest of the day.  But we are all biased, whether we admit it or not!  See you next 
turn.

   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:
        a.  Renaming of the North Fork (DM 47) arena;
        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) 
within 4 turns of the end of TW VI. The certs will be mailed to the winning alliance 
by the Moderators within two weeks of the end of the TW.
