                                      SPY REPORT

     Do you ever just step outdoors and look up in the expanse of the sky and wonder, 
"Are we alone?"  Me either, I have more important things to do than ponder questions 
that I may never be able to answer.  BUT, I can answer your questions about 
Shadowspire's news for this cycle.  Let's get to it, shall we?
     It is out with the old and in with the older!  Some Kinda Pate leaves for the 
Isle, while Thelonius seizes the throne with recognition points.  I would be remiss if 
I did not point out Monoceros' missed opportunity at glory.  What happened, Arcane 
Kid?  Or, are you going to shift the blame to Havok?  Enough about missing your shot 
at glory!  Thelonius has taken the throne and he deserves the recognition for the 
feat.  Vanek and his Warmasters are certainly proud of their warrior and his 
accomplishments.  There will be yet another new Duelmaster next turn, as Thelonius has 
been invited to the Isle of the Eye and immortality.  Will a strong challenger come 
for the seat or another take it on recognition?
     The most avoided team this turn was Big Lake Outcasts.  You found the Dragonbane 
Guild scurrying away from them the most.  Fenn of Doom Brigade was the most challenged 
warrior this turn.  What does that say about the warriors of Shadowspire, especially 
those in the Challenger Champions?  A 1-3 warrior received more challenges than our 
Duelmaster?!?!  Wake up, warriors!  This is how civilizations crumble!  Shanghaied had 
another strong turn going 4-1.  Congrats to Blackhart for a spectacular start in 
Shadowspire.  The Commodores jumped up 7 places to seize the top spot.  10-5-2 over 
the last three turns is very nice.  Their kills alone edged out Some Kinda Hate for 
the top. A hearty hello to Puppet Lords!  Welcome to Shadowspire.  May your stay be 
long and prosperous! 
     There wasn't much unplanned death this turn, but then again, who REALLY plans for 
death?  Four warriors were sent to the Dark Arena.  It is a relief to read the 
listings and see Hombre easing up on his hatred of people named Bob.  In the actual 
arena, three warriors have given up the ghost.  Monster Manual says good bye to Ogre.  
I can think of no one else that was sad to see an ogre leave.  NBA Legends bids 
farewell to Magic.  One of his tricks was obviously not easing blood flow from the 
body.  Last, War Machine will be burying John Little this week.  His record wasn't 
spectacular, but no one likes to lose passable warriors to the opposition.
     The SYP says good bye to new immortals and former Duelmasters Some Kinda Pate and 
Djeree the Djerk.  They will be joined next cycle by Thelonius of Warmasters and Mr 
Brain Smasher of Some Kinda Hate.  So many warriors have been gaining political favor 
in Shadowspire, the rumor is more will be following them soon.  This is, of course, 
assuming they live long enough. 
     With that, we sign off.  On behalf of the Commission and the SYP, we look forward 
to next turn.

White Lightning -- You're fast!  Bravo.  We'll rematch soon. -- Pheare

Byruho -- Did you feel a light breeze in the arena, or was that just the impact of 
your hits?  Heh, nice try. -- Fenn

Pixie -- Bah!  Fals advertisement.  You're a golem! *throws away his pixie bane 
amulet* -- Vilbradr

Shaga -- Thanks for being such a good stepping stone. -- Callamytie

Den -- Hey pot, it's the kettle calling!  If everyone pointed out all of your 1-4's & 
0-5's in the NL, there wouldn't be any room for the regular personal ads! -- DeGotti

Quark -- Unfortunately, those steroids sometimes don't prolong life! -- Ayla

John Little -- Nice try, weak-sauce! -- Hollowsoul

All -- I sent my ships to Seam and brought my sailors here.  Be wary...there a surly 
lot. -- BlackHart, manager of Shanghaied

Le Mutant -- Boing, matey!  Down ye go! -- Three-Toe Joe

Canicule -- Wut kind uv name is Kan-eh-koo?  Must mean "hard to bring down". -- No-
Teeth Keith

Beer Gut -- Great Aunt Mary's backside!! Could ye be wearin' more armor? -- Two-Finger 
Tony

Armageddon -- What were you a-thinkin' draggin' that giant hog-chopper into the arena, 
boy?  Smacked you upside the head to knock some sense into ye. -- Four-Eyed Floyd

Raynor -- Even with my one eye, I could see them chinks in your armor.  Time to fire 
your armorer. -- One-Eyed Clyde

Otto -- Helluva turn, matey!  Rum is on us. -- Shanghaied

DeGotti -- I am sure it is very easy to surprise you, like waking you up to go to 
work, that would certainly be a surprise.  Not having a street urchin spit on your 
disgusting face would indeed be a surprise.  You actually saying something intelligent 
would surprise the entire land.  Do us a favor, eat at Otto's on Botulism Night. -- 
Den

Otis the Dull -- Just in case someone props you up against your futon that you sleep 
upon and drops the newsletter in your hand, I wanted you to know that I was witness to 
your 1-4 last turn.  You don't know much about anything do you?  Is your team named 
after your immediate family?  If you have not drooled upon the paper, thus moistening 
it beyond use, I am guessing that once again you have penned some really boring 
personal ad directed upon my good nature, my good fortune, and trying to libel my all-
around good attitude towards my fellow managers.  I am aghast why you attack me so 
viscously?  Have you no conscious?  I suppose you have to do something since you 
cannot seem to post a decent record. -- Den

Shadowspire -- Let's take a moment to recognize true talent that walks among us.  NBA 
Legends, that was a great 1-4 last turn, I hope NBA stands for NewBand Aids as you are 
going to need them.  Cult of Bacchus impressed us all with yet another 1-4, getting to 
be more common than rumors of DeGotti consoling Otis on dark nights.  Dragonbane 
Guild, maybe you are allergic to dragonbane?  Your 1-4 and was perhaps the most funny 
of them all.  Warmasters once again and for the second turn in a row posts 1-4, keep 
it up guys, managers like you keep the rest of us in the game.  Furry Fury, maybe not, 
maybe just furry, nice 1-4 for you guys last turn.  As noted above the Mongoloids 2 
can't seem to post win #2 these days.  Should have tried naming your team Mongoloids 5 
and then maybe you would get those other wins, or was that team name patented by your 
father?  I am guessing I will get to write about some more of you idiots next cycle. 
-- Den

Rummer -- No kills for you.  Thanks for the skills though. -- Wilt the Stilt

Phineas -- Challenging a warrior with 13 more FE who happens to be a few points below 
you is not a down-challenge in my book.  Now challenging down 70 points against my 
teammate 4 times in a row for a bloodfeud, well, I'll let you decide what to call 
that. -- Magic

   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.
