                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, warriors of WILLAF!  Once again I've been called out of retirement 
for my abilities and insights into Spyreporting.  Woof!  PUNNY AMINALS were a bunch 
of dogs after GOLDEN GLADIATORS got through with 'em!  3rd ain't so sweet as 1st!  
What's with MICROSOFT WORKS?  He actually beat PUNNY AMINALS' DUNROE MINH, and walked 
away with 30 more points from the fight.  Laughs were big at OXYMORONS while they 
watched PEACEKEEPING FORCE clobber CRICKET.  He lost 12 points and got bruised from 
objects thrown from the stands.  Apparently WILLAF isn't filled with as many gutless 
wonders as I thought.  The Dreaded Duelmaster got 2 challenges this turn!  GOLDEN 
GLADIATORS' hatred of YAMABUSHI surfaced again as 24 CARAT challenged WILLAF's top 
dog.  I'm sure WILLAF is excited about 24 CARAT, the new Duelmaster from GOLDEN 
GLADIATORS.  (remember?)  But when you've seen as many as I have...  I suppose you 
want to hear some rumors and dirty gossip about your fellow fighters?  Tough!   
     Speaking of cowardly avoiders and unfair challenges...  WILLAF thinks MAXIMUM 
RESULTS and their 211-263-15 is too much!  If at first you don't succeed, give up...  
Management must be dealin', as the boys at YAMABUSHI ain't reelin'!  MAXIMUM RESULTS' 
mad!   
     A fighter's lot is filled with strife, revenge, and killing.  Some fighters 
don't accept this.  The best do.  DUNROE MINH, with his forgettable 16-22-1,  was 
slain by MICROSOFT WORKS in a forgettable match.  PUNNY AMINALS didn't seem to mind 
very much.  How long have I been here?  I got people to see, places to go...   
     Well, I'm pretty much through.  You guys need to get back practicing.  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

Taikuysu is Duelmaster again, and my own 24 Carat couldn't do anything about it.  A
salute to the winner! -- Midas of Golden Gladiators

Taikutsu -- We surely would like to know what makes you tick.  Why don't you write a
DM Column? -- Midas

Dunroe -- Your definition of fishing sure makes one want to. -- On Golden Pond

Taikutsu -- I bow to my superior. -- 24 Carat

Dunroe Mihn -- It was my day to find the pot of gold!  (wink) -- Gold Bullion

Kung-Fu Master?  I beat him?  Hubba hubba! -- On Golden Pond

I hope to get off the blocks as a Golden Gladiator this turn.  Greetings all.... --
Golden Glow

Me, too. -- Silence Is Golden

Budokumo -- We seem to meet a lot lately.  Yes, we will see each other again.  You
know what they say "If at first you don't succeed".... -- Amis

Ondo Fleur -- Well, you sure know how to hurt a guy.  See you on the sand. --
Stinging Nettle

Peacekeeping Force -- Okay, where are you keeping it?  Don't be selfish, share it
out. -- Chik-Chun Lill

Gold Bullion -- We ought to have a gladiator with a name like yours.  Bull Lion or
something.  But Jorja says the "bull" names were vastly overdone on this team before
she bought out the contract. -- Dunroe Minh

Stinging Nettle -- I've heard that steamed nettles are edible (I won't say delicious)
and highly nutritious.  Just goes to show, huh? -- Ondo Fleur

Ah, yes, a Persistent Beggar.  Just what I always wanted as a punching bag.  And he's
a dwarf, which makes it even better. -- Beau Ramn

If Mr. Ramn thinks he can "get on my sweet side" by "softening up" the Persistent
Beggar, he can darned well think again. -- Baabra Lammont

24 Carat -- More like just a few carrots short of a bunch, I think? -- Dunroe Minh

Midas -- Oh, no!  With a labrador?  How inappropriate, even if it was a golden lab.
-- Jorja

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

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

                            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, 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:
