                                      SPY REPORT

     Thankyouthankyou.  It's great for me, The Unknown Spymaster to be back in 
WILLAF.  Hope you enjoy the show.  Oh, who am I kidding?  I already got paid!  
Advancing in the rankings was MAXIMUM RESULTS who went from last turn's 218-271-15, 
to this week's record of 221-271-16.  Hey everybody, watch out for SILVIA MINNO, who 
flew up 17 points in the rankings after mashing THE USEROUS MERCHANT like a melon.  
Keep your eye on this gal.  And falling like a basher in the top ten was CHIK-CHUN 
LILL, who dropped 2 points after a disappointing (to say the least) bout with 
STINGING NETTLE.  The most challenged warrior this week was BUDOKUMO.  If this keeps 
up, our Duelmaster's going to need more avoids!  It's a proud day for the MAXIMUM 
RESULTS stable, as their warrior, ZIGADENUS, ascended the Duelmaster's throne.  An 
apple a day keeps the doctor away, but an onion a day keeps T.P.s at bay.   
     Let's dig a little deeper into what's happening in the WILLAF arena.  Did you 
hear that GOLDEN GLADIATORS was most avoided team this week?  Well, knowing the 
personal hygiene of GOLDEN GLADIATORS' warriors, I'm not surprised!  Okay, so I may 
not be funny, but catch YAMABUSHI's act in the arena.  Those acrobats seem to be 
fairly deft at running from GOLDEN GLADIATORS.   
     Remember that an arena is not always a safe place to be, but it is one of the 
most interesting, though!  Here's some advice:  warriors with little wit and will may 
encounter problems on the trail to the Isle.   
     Well, there's the manager of the WILLAF giving me the 'cut' sign (or is that 
'They're going to strangle you in the alley?).  Well, there goes another Spy Report.  
Good luck in next week's fights.  Its been real, and its been fun, but it hasn't been 
real fun...-- The Unknown Spymaster

A salute to Budokimo, Duelmaster, and my better.  You won the random match up and I
offer my "well done's".  I suspect that I only have a chance to defeat you on my
challenge.  That chance may be slim.  You go, Duelmaster. -- Gold Bullion

Everyone -- My stats ended at 15-9(2)-12-14(1)-17-7-13 BA.  I went 2-9 vs. TP's
(thanks to On Golden Pond for the last win!)  First basher for my manager to go up to
the Isle.  VH Off and L Act level favors great axe and bash tactic.  See some of you
on the ADM Arena. -- Anis

Midas -- Thanks for the info.  "9ish" for will?  Wow--I am experimenting with wl's as
low as 5 (tournaments mostly).  Probably just will confirm not to run them. -- Coyote

Jorja -- Computer?  No.  I barely know how to use a cell phone.  However, I plan on
going to the next FTF in Phoenix.  I do have a few charts from going to a FTF some
years past.  I will try to get on-line for the rest--as you suggested. -- Coyote,
mgr. Maximum Results
P.S.  Good luck in the Turf War.  I run Warhammers in DM 47.  But do not fight in
Turf Wars!

Midas -- Are you in the Turf War?

Cricket -- We will meet again. -- Stinging Nettle

Silence Is Golden -- You keep hinting at that.  But you're wrong, wrong, wrong.
Totally wrong. -- Ondo Fleur

Oh, Cult Member.  Pooh. -- Silvia Minno

This Osksi Noble is a joke, yes? -- Beau Ramn

I feel bitter about the Dangerous Criminal.  He is not what a standby should be. --
Baabra Lammont

The sky fell on the Fratsfa Slave, and I laughed. -- Chik-Chun Lill
P.S.  It's a dirty job, but someone has to do it.

Coyote -- I would modify Midas's comment on win/loss percentages and current fights
to say that any perceived correlation might also be due to something shallower, such
as "insufficient data."  The "deeper" part could well be "managerial skill." -- Jorja

8 October 2008
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.

                   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.

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

            (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
