                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
RIZTAB brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Later days, DREAMERS, since FORCE OF 
FIVE took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  Now keep the taverns 
open late tonight, for there are sorrows to drown for SWEET MAGIC, whose 0-5-0 this 
turn dropped them by 4 into 6th.  Ha!  I can just hear all the boasts coming in 
FURIES' next personal ads.  Their first turn they went 4-1-0.  Of course, we're all 
terribly impressed to see BIG SHRIMP win a fight and gain 26 points, terribly.  Tsk, 
tsk, PROTAGORAS beat MAMA MIA X and MAMA MIA X lost 18 points.  You're breakin' my 
heart.  And if variety is the spice of life, RIZTAB may be getting bland, as SORAK 
stays top dog in the city.  Kickbacks and bribes, kickbacks and bribes, how else do 
you think some of these guys win their fights?  Skill?  Ha!   
     Well, let's take a look at some more misdeeds of you miserable sword-boys.  
SWEET MAGIC, I suppose you'll be glad to know you were this turn's most avoided team. 
Care to know who is the most afraid of you?  And it looks like FURIES avoided them 
the most this turn.  What a pack of would be losers, if you ask me.  Hmph.  Ooh, I'm 
frightfully impressed, KISSA BELLE was this turn's most challenged warrior.  Watch 
that ego swell, sports fans.  And we have THE ROCK in a challenge, going down 10 
points for the fight.  Guess what?  I thought THE ROCK showed great skill and promise 
when he bested KISSA BELLE.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     Some people like volunteer work in the hospitals.  I volunteer for RIZTAB's 
morgue.  More variety.  Bye bye, warrior, bye bye...  MARLOW, a glorious 15-13-0 
fighter, has passed away.  Gee, too bad HIGH JINKS.  Titanium shields and bamboo 
daggers, guess what brave team is developing these kinds of weapons?   
     There's got to be a better place in RIZTAB to get a drink than The Swinging 
Aardvark!  Any suggestions?  Well, I've had enough of this drivel, and I'm sure you 
have too.  Off like a dirty shirt of padded leather.  I see the crowds are getting 
restless, I must leave now-- Snide Clemens

Gang -- That really was some kind of service.

Carlotta -- Well that could've gone better...but, bad as I was, the future is
brightening. <knock knock> -- Buttercup

Sorak -- It's the mantle of leadership.  Sometimes being thrust into the limelight is
all it takes to bring out the best in us. -- Marlow

Seth -- I'm getting the glare-eye (with eyebrows) from the head cheese.  Strat
changes better perform as anticipated in upgrading my performance. -- Billy

Caelum -- Are you sure you were only a force of five?  I thought it might easily be
six or seven.  (wincing)  Or even ten! -- Tariliss

Pythagoras -- I feel sure that there's more to you than just the dumb triangle, but
it seems like there's never time to look into it.  AUGHH!  But whatever my teammates
decide to do with the "team theme" idea--and no, we will NOT change our team name
"just because we can"--the very idea!  Where was I?  Ah, right, *I* am going to open
a pastry and candy shop.  So there.  And I would like to name a triangular filled
pastry after you.  Flaky crust, you know, and whatever really good preserves I can
get my hands on, which will obviously vary from day to day.  Stop in and try a
complimentary sample.  Um, after I get set up.  Probably a couple of weeks yet. --
Corianelle

Protagoras -- And I'm going to help Cori, and you strike me as the inspiration for a
sausage roll.  Garlic and pork and sage, in a pie crusty sort of roll.  Maybe with a
squiggle of mustard down the top after it comes out of the oven. -- Dora Bell
P.S.  Because it can't be ALL sweets, you know.  We wouldn't want the more piggish
gladiators barfing in the street outside our door, think of the horrible image that
would be!

Buttercup -- Definitely.  You can't go wrong with butter, not when you're baking
pastries.  With honey. -- Carlotta

The Blob -- Don't remind me!  I never realized making tidy little chocolate kisses
would be that HARD.  I can see I need more practice. -- Kissa Belle

Oh, well, if everybody ELSE is going to bake, I guess I need to also.  Wouldn't want
to be left out.  But I'm not going to get all elaborate like some people I can think
of.  Honeycomb, that's my entry.  And somebody else can do the harvesting. --
Tariliss

Oh, no!  Repulsive Rogan and Tiddles both gone!  How will we manage without them? --
the cooks at Sweet Magic

Buttercup -- Wow, I didn't know people ever grew hair that glorious. -- Dora Bell

Our congratulations to Sorak. -- Jorja and the Sweet Magic crew

        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

        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.
