                             Notes from the arena champ.

Well, I'm back.  I really didn't expect to win when I saw whom I was fighting, much
less win that quickly.  Maybe next time, Pythy.  (You don't mind if I call you Pythy,
do you?)

My tournament performance was, as expected, miserable.  Too many warriors in
Challengers who do nothing but train year-round for tournaments--it's not very
healthy for a weekly warrior like me to try to compete with them.  Still, I learned a
thing or two, so it wasn't completely a waste.

Since I know nothing about either of Sleepy's warriors other than their styles, I
won't be issuing any challenges this turn.  Let's see if the modified approach will
work on whichever of the his two I get.  With any luck, I'll be back for one more
turn of boring you to tears.

Until next time....

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, warriors of RIZTAB!  Once again I've been called out of retirement 
for my abilities and insights into Spyreporting.  What's with MAMA MIA X?  She 
actually beat SWEET MAGIC's CORIANELLE, and walked away with 23 more points from the 
fight.  Major screwup at SWEET MAGIC.  CARLOTTA lost 14 points to MORWEN.  Some new 
strategies, perhaps?  Maybe CARLOTTA will provide more easy wins...  Har har har!  
Did BELEG CUTHALION wimp out, or just get lazy?  Anyway, he's not Duelmaster anymore. 
I can barely restrain my enthusiam for DREAMERS' outstanding member, Duelmaster 
DEMOCRITUS.  I suppose you want to hear some rumors and dirty gossip about your 
fellow fighters?  Tough!   
     Speaking of cowardly avoiders and unfair challenges...  RIZTAB thinks HIGH JINKS 
and their 310-286-20 is too much!  If at first you don't succeed, give up...  
Management must be dealin', as the boys at SILMARILLIAD ain't reelin'!  HIGH JINKS' 
mad!   
     A fighter's lot is filled with strife, revenge, and killing.  Some fighters 
don't accept this.  The best do.  Is it my imagination, or are fighters getting 
younger every day?  To die so young, so gloriously!   
     Who knows what the future holds for a warrior.  More fights, there's no doubt.  
The end of another Spyreport!  That's cause for celebration in my book!  Remember--a 
good fighter needs both good skills and good luck.  Until next time,-- Olaf Modeen

Huh, I go away trusting Sweet Betsey to see to hiring new gladiators, and what do I
find when I return?  A team of four, one of them dying as I ride into town, making a
team of three!  Somebody's going to find she doesn't have as big a pension as she
expected. -- Jorja, Sweet Magic
P.S.  And sour or even bitter at need, so there!

Heraclitus -- No, no, no.  I'm just not going to do that kind of stuff.  Honestly,
you gee-- I mean, you Greeks! -- Tariliss
P.S.  Throat, face, chest, leg, arm, head, why do I think you don't like me anymore?

Democritus -- Cheese!  I didn't think you took that "reduce it all to atoms" stuff
seriously.  If I can assemble enough ectoplasm to formulate a good curse, I'll lay
one on you. -- Ghost of Tiannary
P.S.  And you did laugh.  I distinctly heard it.
P.P.S.  Well, I suppose it could have been somebody else.

Marlow -- Honestly, men!  If you hack those off and take them home, you'll find they
aren't nearly as much fun as if you had the whole ensemble, so to speak. --
Corianelle
P.S.  Unless you've got some really weird fetishes.
P.P.S.  And yes, of course I bit the hand you offered me.  What else could I do?

Tiddles -- If visual daggers, you know "looking daggers at" someone were a little
more potent, you'd be pinned to the arena wall.  I'd try the other kind, but it will
have to be in an alley somewhere, as Jorja says I can't take a dagger into the arena,
even as a backup.  Spoilsport, what she is. -- Carlotta
P.S.  You laugh now, but after I catch you in an alley, you'll be laughing out of the
other side of your face.

Repulsive Rogan -- Of course.  I practice. -- Carlotta

Billy -- You can admire my style without looking down the front of my shirt, surely?
-- Corianelle, fluttering her eyelashes just a little to confuse things

17 July 2008
All -- Many of you know me and many more don't, but I will be scarce for a few
months.  I am relocating, so look for my presence online!  As my will, so mote it
be! -- Abraxis

               c.  Only one (1) team per player may compete.  No multiple teams or
                   aliases will be allowed.  Violations will result in immediate
                   disqualification from the Turf War (so be sure to take any
                   multiple teams OFF of Team Maintenance).
               d.  Scoring will NOT be retroactive for teams that do not properly
                   declare 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 scoring
                   will not begin until Turn 3.  All conditions must be met before
                   scoring will begin--declaration, verification, and Gift
                   Certificate received.
               e.  No declarations or verifications will be accepted after Turn 5 of
                   the Turf War.
               f.  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.

Scoring will be as follows for Fights:
                Win   Loss   Kill      Die
Challenge        +2     -2     +5       -5
Match Up         +1     -1     +1       -5
Bloodfeud        +2     -5     +5      -10
Champion         x2     x2     x2       x2
Dark Arena*     +10     -5     xx       xx
*After 2nd win, warrior scores no points for wins

Special Scoring Considerations for the Turf War are as follows:
Spy Report mention (team name only)              +2
Style Master                                     +2
Duelmaster                                       +2

Champions:
     1.  A Champion may be declared, but one is not mandatory.
     2.  Only one Champion allowed per manager at any given time.
     3.  Champions that graduate or are killed by another warrior in the arena, but
         not the Dark Arena, may be replaced.
     4.  Champions must be in the Adepts bracket or lower on the turn they are
         declared, and may NOT have gone above Adepts level at any time; this
         includes teams transferred into North Fork for the Turf War.

Bloodfeuds:
        1.  Bloodfeuds will score points on all four (4) turns.
        2.  There is no limit to which warrior may bloodfeud or how often.

Tournament Considerations:
        1.  Tournament participation is ALLOWED and encouraged.
        2.  Tournament Victors won during the course of the contest will gain a one
            (1) time bonus of 25 points.  This bonus will apply EACH time a
            warrior(s) wins such status.
        3.  Tournament Champions won during the course of the contest will gain a one
            (1) time bonus of 50 points.  This bonus will apply EACH time a
            warrior(s) win such status.
        4.  Points for TVs and TCs will be applied the Turn after RSI posts
            tournament results in the North Fork (DM 47) newsletter (i.e., if the
            results post on North Fork turn 275, points will be credited on North
            Fork turn 276 to the applicable teams).

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 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.
        3.  There will be a maximum of seven (7) teams allowed per alliance for the
            Turf War.
        4.  The Dark Arena may be used on the first turn only, of every warrior,
            without penalty.

Prizes:
The Turf War is a "winner take all" contest.  All prizes and 100% of the Gift
Certificates will be awarded to the Captain of the winning alliance.  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.

            (warrior must be ranked Initiate or above, must be alive, and must have
            at least one arena fight to receive this award).
        4.  +1 Skill bonus potion for each manager on the winning alliance.  Bonus
            potion must be applied to a living warrior from (DM 47)
