                                      SPY REPORT

     It's me, The Unknown Spymaster here with my bag to give you the news on last 
week's fights.  Hey everybody, watch out for MORWEN, who flew up 13 points in the 
rankings after mashing BILLY like a melon.  Keep your eye on this gal.  And falling 
like a basher in the top ten was BILLY, who dropped 11 points after a disappointing 
(to say the least) bout with MORWEN.  Well, everybody's pal DEMOCRITUS moved his 
record to 16-9-1 by defeating MARLOW in the Duelmaster's Title Bout and gaining 4 
recognition points.  4 out of 5 gladiators surveyed protect the body, so try and 
avoid aiming at that location.   
     Let's dig a little deeper into what's happening in the RIZTAB arena.  And hey, 
kiddies, those of you who didn't avoid SWEET MAGIC, please raise you hand.  Wow.  
Does RIZTAB really have that many liars?  Okay, so I may not be funny, but catch 
SILMARILLIAD's act in the arena.  Those acrobats seem to be fairly deft at running 
from SWEET MAGIC.  Well dang howdy, but if challenges were votes, BILLY would be 
president.  Although it may be a contest he doesn't want to win.   
     Death is kind of like a new puppy:  he's always around wanting to play.  (Ha 
Zontani, how's that for a wise saying?).  Remember:  alliances are great, but try and 
take your ally in the arena with you and see what happens.   
     Well, that wasn't too bad; Alarond told me that the people in RIZTAB have no 
sense of humor.  Or maybe that they were senseless.  Well, there goes another Spy 
Report.  Good luck in next week's fights.  Its been fun, and I'm sure you enjoyed it 
(boos).  Now that I've got you worked up for Snide Clemens, I'll be leaving-- The 
Unknown Spymaster

Morwen -- Drat.  Is this the effect of having a real "team theme" to ground yourself
on?  If so I may have to talk to Jorja about this.  It's bad enough that we're
handicapped by managerial inattention; if establishing a theme will help us, at
little or no effort from the management, I say we should go for it. -- Carlotta
P.S.  Sure, I know what was said about our original, pre-Jorja theme, but she said
when she took us over that it was ridiculous and demeaning, and I have to agree.  I
wasn't here then, but I've heard the old, ah, the senior members of the team speak on
it.  Forcefully!

Pythagoras -- You've got an angle, sure enough, and it's acute, too.  Ah, that's like
astute, but more pointed, right?  But hey, what works for you won't work for us.
Geometry is not what anyone would call our strong point.  Oh, a pun!  Well, good,
this personal needs all the help it can get.  Ah, where was I?  Oh, right, theme.
Well, we all got together and put a bunch of ideas in a hat, anonymously, writing
them with our left hands (except when left-handed to begin with) so that we couldn't
recognize each other's writing, and somebody put in "students and practitioners of
love magic of all kinds."  Nope.  Not buying that one.  It's manipulation, and I do
not approve of manipulation.  Maybe that's the golem in me, I mean, I don't know why
some darned magician "created" me to begin with, but I figure it's going to be
manipulative sooner or later, and I'm against that.  Free will, that's my motto. --
Tariliss

Mama Mia X -- Cheese, lady, there's no need to be savage with me.  My idea was a
perfectly innocent one, that we should open a confectionery.  Candy and cookies and
maybe the odd cake now and then, you know?  Brownies, too.  Chocolate covered nuts.
Vanilla Fruit Medley Fudge.  The good stuff, you know?  All kinds of stuff like that.
There's the true sweet magic. -- Corianelle
P.S.  Maybe take out a silent partnership with a dentist.

My teammates, the sweethearts, say I can't vote on a theme because I'm "too new."
Because I killed that stupid thief.  What *I* say is, we have to wait till the fifth
member of the team arrives, and then *all* of us vote.  And we'd better come up with
some other ideas than love magic and candy.  That's kinda limiting, you know?  There
must be other stuff we can hitch to the team name. -- Dora Bell
P.S.  Or we can start lobbying for a name-change-o-rama and just *change* the team
name.  What the heck, you know?  Just because it's an old name doesn't mean we have
to keep it.

Democritus -- Damned dwarf.  I'd've made a better duelmistress than you.  Not that
anyone on the Commission would have *let* me do it. -- Angry Rosetta

Rosetta -- Democritus will never make a duelmistress, being male.  But he earned
fairly the title of duelmaster, so go take out your anger elsewhere.  I don't want to
hear about it.  I have a headache. -- Arenamaster Rillion (not to be confused with
the manager of that name)

Protagoras -- It isn't often that I meet someone who can talk faster than I can.  It
was an interesting experience. -- Hezash the Mouth

Philolaus -- Listen, (whine) I've got a family to feed.  (whine, whine)  I need that
victor's bonus.  (grovel)  How about letting me win next time we fight? -- Willie the
Rat

Dora Bell -- That is no way to "win friends and influence people," young lady.  We
don't have an endless supply of thieves willing to fight in the arena, which means
the ones we do have must be resurrected.  Which is expensive.  You'll get a bill for
that.  Also, it creates a lot of bad feeling.  Sibata has declared his intention to
lay a curse on you as soon as he gets over the resurrection hangover. -- Arenamaster
Rillion

9 August 2008
All -- We are currently looking for capable manager that will give the Desolate
Empire Alliance a full roster for the Turf War.  We currently have four (4) roster
slots that are open to capable managers without questionable morals.  If interested
for the Turf War, contact:  Lamar Treas-Wilson, Dok Sik, Dok Sik Killas DM 47

        2.  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 will not be accepted.
               a.  No scores will be tabulated until a Gift Certificate is received.
                   No EXCEPTIONS.
               b.  Before a manager can compete, he/she must declare themselves in
                   the North Fork (DM 47) newsletter as stated above AND be verified
                   by the alliance Captain they will represent.
               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)
