Malcorn:

     Agro watched the humans and kept silent, but he was thinking.  First, he was
wondering what he was doing here, this was a matter for the humans, who had souls to
worry about.  He had never heard that Crocs had souls.  Okay, someone had said
earlier that they must, he couldn't remember if that had been the shaman Wolf or old
Math.  But the possible souls of Crocs were not his business, they were the business
of his manager, T-Hawk.  Who was not here.  Did that mean that he himself, Agro,
being here, had to look out for the interests of all Crocs?  That was not the way of
his kind.  Humans were herd animals.  Well, pack animals, anyway.  Crocs were
solitary.
     He looked around at the other members of the group.  Wondering what they
expected of him.  Glad he didn't have an indecently expressive face such as the warm-
bloods did; at least they wouldn't be able to read his uncertainty as easily as he
read their misgivings.
     "You've said that the enemies we're fighting have drawn in 'other creatures' to
aid in sowing disorder," Redfox said.  His comment came as a surprise; he was usually
quiet and simply let the others tell him what they wanted him to do.  "Would it be
useful to trap one of these others and question it?"
     The dark stranger, the one who had come out of the Silent Place, shook his head.
"Useful... perhaps.  The lesser creatures are not likely to know much of use to us,
but they might know something.  But not possible.  To bait such a trap would be easy,
any warm-blooded human would serve.  To close it, impossible, because any other warm-
blooded human waiting to do that would be as obvious as the bait.  It is your living
warmth that they detect."
     Redfox looked at Agro.
     The Croc nodded.  "My blood is not warm, and I have the skills of a hunter," he
said.  I could be the jaws of such a trap."
     The dark stranger stared at Agro for several minutes, then nodded.  "I can
barely detect your presence myself, from this close range and knowing you're there.
This effort might succeed."
     Redfox nodded, too.  "Okay.  It was my idea, so I'll stand bait, if you'll be
the trap, Agro."
     "Yes, I will do it."  In fact, Agro found himself looking forward to it.
Hunting was something he knew and enjoyed, and a whole new prey creature would be
intriguing.  Also, it was the first thing they'd come up with in this situation that
was more suited to him than any of the others.  "Tonight?" he asked.  "Right now?"
He pushed back his chair to rise.
     "No, there isn't enough of the night left.  Tomorrow night," Wolf said.
     Math raised his eyebrows.  "I thought we were leaving here in the morning."
     "It won't matter where we are, within fifty miles.  The lesser creatures are
already dispersed," the dark stranger said.  "They'll find us."

                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
MALCORN brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Later days, GREENWARDENS, since DARK 
CREATION took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  Gee, I'm 
impressed, a 4-1-0 is nice, but don't get cocky, STARBASE 5, the Fates teach 
humility, and the Fates are proud.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed to see 
VARPULIS RUKH win a fight and gain 20 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, MOSSROCK beat 
LYLYANNA and LYLYANNA lost 6 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  And if variety is 
the spice of life, MALCORN may be getting bland, as THULE stays top dog in the city.  
I'm not in a very good mood today, but why am I telling you this?  You want to know 
what's new, don't you, MALCORN?   
     My mother always told me, 'If you don't have anything nice to say, start 
talking.' I loved that woman.  GREENWARDENS, 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 
who led the way in this mass act of cowardice?  Let's see, well, whatcha know?  It 
was DARK CREATION.  Ha ha ha ha!  MOSSROCK was challenged more times this turn than 
the Duelmaster.  Now was the DM insulted or feared?  Heh, heh.  I notice NECROPALYPSE 
challenging down 17 points to fight THORNWOOD, DARK CREATION doubtless has some 
rotten excuse for such an insult to honor.  And golly gee, NECROPALYPSE dealt death 
to  THORNWOOD.  Aren't we all surprised and impressed?   
     Death and Taxes.  The less death I see, the more it taxes my patience.  Let's 
see if anyone's dead or dying.  Bye bye, warrior, bye bye...  THORNWOOD, a glorious 
3-6-0 fighter, has passed away.  Gee, too bad GREENWARDENS.  Honor is like a 
chainmail shirt, it only shines through use.  Certain nameless cowards will doubtless 
rebuke me on this one.   
     I was about to buy a new quill pen the other day, but some fighter took it for 
an epee.  Forgive me for writing with a dagger.  Well, I've had enough of this 
drivel, and I'm sure you have too.  Off like a dirty shirt of padded leather.  Glad 
to see the back of this place-- Snide Clemens

Hail Alastarians!
     Allow me to introduce myself.  I am Vanek, manager of the Warmasters in the No-
Tourney arena of Shadowspire.  I come to you with a public service announcement.
Some of you may already be aware of Shadowspire and some of you may not realize what
exactly you're missing.  This isn't your average arena.  This is Shadowspire, a large
and very active arena where role-playing is encouraged; many managers are active both
the personal ads and the D2 forums online, and excitement reigns with many grudge
matches from turn to turn.
     If you haven't checked arena 81 out, I urge you to do so.  After returning to
the game almost 2 years ago, after a 15+ year hiatus, I was looking to try and
recapture the magic of the game I remembered from my youth.  After finding my first
two arenas lacking, I almost quit the game again.  That was until I found the newly
opening Shadowspire.  It was here that I found the magic and excitement that I
remembered.  I truly love this arena and am sure you will too if given a chance.
Rookie or experienced veteran, it matters not.  Both have come together here to
successfully make an arena with plenty of competition to challenge the vets, yet with
the no tourney format, friendly enough for the novices to get their feet wet and
learn (or relearn) the game.  When I say that even novices can find success here, I
speak from personal experience.  I still consider myself a "newbie" to the game but
have found plenty of success with my first two Duelmaster titles and two ADM
graduates to date.
     I encourage you all to check out the D2 forums at www.reality.com/duel2/ and
look over both the Shadowspire newsletter and DM-81 forum section at the bottom of
the page.  The forum banter and personal ads help to clearly show that the "old
school" feel for the game is still alive and well here in Shadowspire.
     Also, if you're a former Shadowspire manager who is currently away, I encourage
you to return and help continue to make this one of the most entertaining arenas in
the game today!
     I hope to see many new faces in the near future and am excited to see the return
of some of the old faces whom have been away!
     Sincerely,
          Vanek

8 October 2008
After 17 long years they are finally cutting the Cowboy loose.  Red & stinging, my
hand is now sufficiently slapped.  The state of Texas' boot print is stamped across
my ***... Uncle Damnit!  I am only 34 (think about it...) so plenty of time to
reinvent myself...prospects are great.  After wading through the culture shock I hope
to be amongst you soon, dishing out paper "w"itch slaps and taking my share of them
from you.  See you @ the Winter face '09?  Only time will tell.  Good luck. --
CFH/Rat Salad, 5 Below Zero and an assortment of other underachieving thugs.
P.S.  Contact info coming soon for those who want it; email and all that other fun
sh...stuff.  *grin*  Sorry Ed.

                            Starting Nov 2008 (10 turns)

Anyone may participate; known alliances, new alliances, or temporary alliances
created solely to compete in the Turf War!  To participate, each alliance must:
        1.  Announce the alliance and the Captain of the alliance in the North Fork
            (DM 47) newsletter.
        2.  Announcements made on the D2 Forums will not be accepted.

Captains are responsible for:
        1.  Verifying those who wish to participate under the banner of their
            alliance;
        2.  Distribution of prizes should their alliance win the Turf War.
        3.  Submit one (1) RSI Roll-Up Certificate to participate

Participating managers who are not Captains must:
        1.  Submit one (1) RSI Roll-Up Certificate to participate
        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.
               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.

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

     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.

        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

            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

            War with Team A.
