                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of NIYTYOLE ISLAND!  Know me for who I am, Zontani 
Sharp Eyes, Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  Former top team THE MOTHERSHIP 
ALPHA was unseated this week as DYSLEXIC COWBOYS moved up from 6th ranking to take 
the top spot with a 4-1-0 record for the round.  Warriors--remember that glory waits 
always around the corner!  Witness how this week RAVAGING LORDS went 4-1-0 to move up 
9 in the rankings.  My praise to DYSLEXIC COWBOYS for their 4-1-0 week this time out. 
Indeed, it was a skillfully fought round deserving of notice!  RECYCLE OVERFLOW 
caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested KYMZO 
KAKASHI and was awarded 18 points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable 
duels, MR FRIDAYNIGHT put down DEATH PRETZEL, causing him to lose 14 points of 
recognition in the process.  This time out THE UNCHOSEN ONE made its bid for the 
throne as it challenged GENTILE BIBLETHUMPER in an all out contest of skill for 
possession of the title!  Not for nothing has GENTILE BIBLETHUMPER in the past laid 
claim to the Duelmaster's throne, and this week he's proven his combat skill yet 
again.  Heed this!  A seer has warned that if exactly 6 die in duels this week, the 
whole city shall perish!  Just remember...5 or 7!   
     Many and various are the arts of battle.  In NIYTYOLE ISLAND "art" is a word 
that has long since passed from the language!  I saw one fighter that warriors 
avoided when this week's challenge seeking began.  BIG LAKE BANDITS is feared.  This 
much I can say.  Apparently the stalwarts of HE BE GBS are catching the bulk of jests 
down at the challenging board for their large share of the avoids.  Mighty fighters 
cannot but expect competition from those below.  PRESSTONE SMELLS take warning!  You 
have more than a few enemies in NIYTYOLE ISLAND.  At the gambling halls I have 
started to bet money on BAT CALLOU.  She has got the courage it takes.  Witness hers 
challenge this turn against PENANGGALAN!  To be sure the battle was a losing one.  
But I like to think BAT CALLOU at least gave PENANGGALAN a run for hers money.   
     What warrior does not hone his years, impatiently waiting for the moment of his 
foe's mortality?  Some say a warrior is judged by the way he bears arms.  One thing 
is sure, better a dagger in hand then a sword on the belt!   
     The girls are as pretty in NIYTYOLE ISLAND as ever I remembered them....and the 
fighters as ugly!  Don't let your reputation slip!  Sadly warriors, now longer can I 
keep thy company nor savor the ale of thy fine city.  Depart I must and soon!  Till 
we meet again, remember:  a turtle walks slow, hides head in a shell, and harms no 
one; a lion runs to slay its prey.-- Zontani Sharp Eyes

Consortium -- You hire educated spokesmen to cover your own lack of command of the 
English language?!?  I'd say brilliant, but I know the idea (the only ideas you ever 
have are to stuff yourself full of food when you get hungry -- and those only on a 
good day) came from one of your lackeys.  Likely Assur, your newbie arena buddy.  
Pretty funny, the two of you having to pick on newbies to win fights -- General Bashur

Larlu on the throne?!?  What has become of our fine city?  I remember when Hastur was 
sending Larlu to lose against Snowed In, one of the worst warriors ever to fight here 
on the Isle.

Darkfart -- Never ever go off your meds again!!!  That was disgraceful. -- Bashur

Bill -- Spectacular display!!!  5 DA's! -- G. Bashur
P.S. You should just run whatever the RUGs give you.  It's not like you could manage a 
quality warrior any better than a loser.

Den -- "Mighty" Allied Axis?  Mighty what?!?  Mighty mediocre? Mighty illiterate?  
Mighty dull?  I will give you credit for keeping your alliance fighting in the arena.  
And the illiteracy part does exempt them from writing personal ads.  But perhaps you 
should think about the adjectives you're using.  Hmmm.  Perhaps you should just think.  
Even your little brain won't explode from the effort. -- Bashur

Why, Private Bashur, thank you for the neat compliments. You are so much nicer that 
everyone seems to think. -- The Consortium

Ah, Stik; "den", "d-bags"; I get the connection, now. Sorry to be a little slow. Must 
be old age. -- The Consortium

Lamien Darkhart -- It's funny that you and your girlfirend Caitlyn Denner call ME all 
kinds of Dorkio this and Dorko that, but WE ALL recognize the fact that the REAL DORKS 
are the ones that crave the attention so much they just can't keep their pie holes 
shut.  What a pack of losers if you ask me.  HA!!  Put that Jester in your pipe and 
smoke it. -- Scorpio

                  TURF WAR XI EXTRAVAGANZA(TWIXIE)RULES (Rev 6-3-18)

                           (Estimated start T398, OCT 2018)

               Bring acclaim and glory to the North Fork (DM47) arena.

Anyone may participate; known alliances, new alliances, thrown-together alliances, or 
temporary alliances created solely to compete in the Turf War!  To participate, each 
alliance must:

    1.  Announce as Captain of an alliance in the North Fork (DM 47) newsletter. (List 
        teams and managers in the three-team alliance. (Also designate alliance name.)
    2.  Announce in the newsletter which Captain/alliance your team is joining.
    3.  Announcements made on the D2 Forums or elsewhere will not be accepted.

Captains are responsible for:

    1.  Announcing, in the North Fork newsletter, those who are a part of their 
        alliance. Both Manager announcement and Captain announcement/confirmation are 
        required.
    2.  Distribution of certs should your alliance win the Turf War.
    3.  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:

    1.  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.)
    2.  Announce an intent to compete with their manager name, team name, and alliance 
        they will join in the North Fork (DM 47) newsletter
    3.  Announcement made on the D2 Forums or Chatzy will not be accepted.

No alliance 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.             

All entry certs should be sent to Oz or The Consortium via RSI.

Only one (1) team per player/manager may compete in the Turf Wars, and only one team 
per player/manager may compete in North Fork DM47 during the Turf War.  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). NOTE: Since alliances require three teams, this would mean the 
remaining alliance/alliance members cannot score in the TW.

Any Turf War team must show/be posted/listed in the DM47 Newsletter just prior to 
their actual scoring/participation. (E.g. New teams, transfers, current teams must 
show up in the newsletter prior to the beginning of participation, allowing opponent 
knowledge and challenging/avoiding.) Manager/teams may not participate/score in the 
Turf War the same turn they are first posted in the newsletter. (So get your team in 
the newsletter early.)Clarifying: All teams MUST show up in the NL just prior to the 
first TW turn to be allowed to score in the first TW round. Teams do not have to run 
that turn prior to TW-T1, but will have had to run shortly before to allow their 
warriors to be visible in the newsletter just prior to TW-T1.

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, confirmation, and Gift Certificate 
received.

No declarations or confirmations 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.)

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

SCORING will be as follows:

*  Only top two base score teams score/count per round per alliance.
*  Top one base score team per alliance scores twice (double).
*  Lowest team base score per alliance gets a ?pass? and does not score.
*  Team is disqualified for round scoring if fighting less than 5 fights. 
   (Exception:The turn after a Mailer or FTF where a death occurred to a TW 
   team/manager, the manager may fight only four and be scored. If multiple deaths, 
   then multiple ?non fight? exemptions occur for that turn after the tournament.)
*  If a team is disqualified from scoring, the remaining top one base score team 
   scores double and the lowest team gets a ?pass? and does not score.
*  If two disqualified teams occur, the third team cannot score double and only scores 
   single.

BASE SCORING =    W = +2       L = -1      K = +1       Death = 0  

Those scores are the same for match ups, up or down challenges, NPC matches, 
or Dark Arena fights. With these exceptions:

--- Each warrior is limited to two DA matches during the TW. A 3rd and subsequent DA 
    fight during the TW shall be scored at -5 points (win or lose.)
--- Alliance Match Up scored = 0 for each warrior. Kill point disallowed.
--- Intra Alliance Challenge scored = -1 for each warrior; no kill points may score.  
    (It is not the spirit of competition to challenge fellow members of the same 
    alliance. Hence, challenges as such will be scored as losses for both warriors 
    with no kill points awarded.)

First 6 rounds scores 1x.
End of round 6, top alliance adds 6 points. 2nd adds 4, 3rd adds 2, 4th adds 1.
Rounds 7 thru 9 scores 2x.
Final round 10 scores 3x.

Tournament Considerations:

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

Special Considerations:

    1.  Each alliance begins the Turf War with zero (0) points.
    2.  There will be NO alliance or team changes once the contest has begun.  If you 
        begin the Turf War with Alliance X, you must end the Turf War with Alliance X.  
        If you begin the Turf War with Team X, you must end the Turf War with Team X.
    3.  There will be a maximum of three (3) teams/managers allowed per alliance for 
        the Turf War VII. The minimum is three (3).
    4.  The Dark Arena may be used without penalty.(Limit twice per warrior.)
    5.  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 near "winner takes all" contest. It is the 
responsibility of the Captain of the winning alliance to distribute Gift Certificates.  
Moderators will submit a list of each manager winner to RSI at the completion of the 
contest for the non-Certificate and RSI awarded prizes, to then be claimed by the 
manager from RSI Customer Service within 6 months.

    *  Winning alliance gets 90% of the pooled certs.
    *  Individual Team with most wins in 10 rounds gets 10% of the pooled certs.
    *  RSI awards: (all must be applied to DM47 warriors, cannot create out-of-bounds 
       warrior, and one max prize applied to any warrior ? all within 6 months)(one 
       max prize means that if you win two prizes they cannot be applied to the same 
       warrior.)
    *  Winning alliance captain may choose two (each manager/team receives same prize 
       as chosen by captain):
       - Limited Damage Bump (bump one level damage) (warrior must have fought in the 
         TW)
       - Stat replace (remove 2 SZ, replace 2 to any other stat) (warrior must have 
         fought in the TW)

mailed to the winning alliance by the Moderators within two weeks of the end of the 
TW.

Addendum: 
Examples of scoring for clarification.
Code = win-loss-kill-death   (W = +2  L = -1  K = +1  Death = 0) 

Example #1:
Team A goes 2-3-0-0 (points = +4-3+0-0 = +1)
Team B goes 3-2-1-0 (points = +6-2+1-0 = +5)
Team C goes 2-3-2-0 (points = +4-3+2-0 = +3)
Team B top score, scores twice 2x+5 (+10)
Team A lowest score, does not score and gets a pass.
Team C, then, scores normal at (+3)
Alliance Score = 10 + 3 = +13

Example #2:
Team A goes 4-0-1-0 (points = +8-0+1-0 = +9)
Team B goes 3-2-0-0 (points = +6-2+0-0 = +4)
Team C goes 2-3-0-0 (points = +4-3+0-0 = +1)
Team A is disqualified from scoring having not fought five fights.
If a team is disqualified, then the top remaining team scores double while the lowest 
remaining score gets a ?pass?.
Team B top remaining score, scores twice = 2 x +4 (+8)
Team C lowest score, does not score and gets a pass.
Alliance Score = 8

Example #3
Team A goes 4-1-1-0 (points +8-1+1+0 = +8) 
However, Team A fought the DA for the 3rd time = -5.
Team A adjusted to (+8-1=1=0-5 = +3)
Team B goes 1-4+0-0 (points +2-4+0-0 = -2)
Team C goes 1-4+1-0 (points +2-4+1-0 = -1)
Team A top score, scores twice 2x+3 (+6)
Team B lowest score, does not score and gets a pass.
Team C, then, scores normal at (-1)
Alliance score = +6-1 = +5

Example #4
Team A goes 1-4-0-0 (points = +2-4+0-0 = -2)
Team B goes 1-4-0-0 (points = +2-4+0-0 = -2)
Team C goes 0-5-0-0 (points = +0-5+0-0 = -5)
Team A or B is top score and scores twice 2x-2 = -4
Team C lowest score, does not score and gets a pass.
Team B, then, scores normal at (-2)
Alliance score = -4-2 = -6

Example #5
Team A goes 3-2-0 with a winning match-up with Team B alliance mate.
Team B goes 2-3-1-0 with a winning and killing challenge to Team C alliance mate.
Team B also lost the alliance match-up with Team A.
Team C goes 1-4-0-1 having been killed in a challenge from alliance mate Team B
Team A points normally = +6-2+0-0 = +4, but one win was an alliance match-up which 
scores as 0, hence score = +4-2+0-0 = +2
Team B points normally = +4-3+1-0 = +2, but one loss was an alliance match up which 
counts as 0, and one winning kill was an intra alliance challenge which the win counts 
as -1 and the kill is negated. Hence Team B score = +1-2+0-0 = -1
Team C points normally = +2-4+0-0 = -2; with one loss and kill coming from an intra 
alliance challenge, but the IAC (intra alliance challenge) scores (-1)the same as a 
loss and there are no points scored for being killed, the +2-4+0-0 = (-2) stands.
Team A top score, scores twice 2x+2 (+4)
Team C lowest score, does not score and gets a pass.
Team B, then, scores normal at (-1)
Alliance score = +4-1 = +3

Remember: (W = +2  L = -1  K = +1  Death = 0) 
It only gets complicated with intra alliance match-ups (IAMs) and intra alliance 
challenges. (IACs)
