"Enough!" Elly the orc yelled in rage.  The others seemed not to hear her and only
laughed harder as she stormed out.
     "Oh, good riddance to the brown-noser, I say," called an attractive woman known
as Irraka.  "I must admit, well done, T'Lani.  I had my doubts about you, but...top
recognition amongst us!"
     The well-dressed (and colorful) Fratsfan gave a devilish smile and leaned back,
stretching his legs.  "I did look good out there."
     Ithaeur the Rirorni, dressed in little more than a throw-over, steadily glared
at the dandy.  *What luck... now he'd be bragging for weeks.*  "At least Elodoth
didn't win.  Fate smiles on us.  I doubt we'll even hear a peep for a fortnight."
     "We made a good showing.  Garou has graced us with a bit of freedom at this fine
tavern, and seems more content each day.  I believe this city is special to him."
     "Yeah, Rin," Irraka said, resting her chin in her palms, looking throughtful.
"Do you remember his reaction when he finally laid eyes on Aljafir?  Kinda creepy."
     Rahu (Rin) nodded, and gestured to another table.  "Isn't that the new
Duelmaster?"
     All heads turned in curiosity.
     "Doesn't look very dangerous," Ithaeur commented.
     "Well then, Plainsman, why not go ask for a duel outside," T'Lani chimed.
     The Rirorni shrugged.  "Sure, I..." he looked down, seeing the lovely Harkeny,
Tamyra, clutching his arm and smiled.
     "Don't encourage him, T'Lani.  It's cruel....  I mean, he's not Elly, anyway."
The Fratsfan shrugged with a smile and gave a salute towards the Duelmaster.
     The Rirorni frowned as Tamyra drew her hand away, then settled back into his
seat, while the Half-Elf silently contemplated the words his master Garou had spoken
to them.  "And the whelp Rylian will follow the True Path, or be removed from it," he
muttered.
     "What's that, Rin?" Tamyra asked.
     Rin sat forward, leaning in close to the others.  "Anyone know what the 'True
Path' is?"

                                      SPY REPORT

     Oh, hi.  Its just little 'ol Debby Tonte.  Thought I'd check out ALJAFIR to see 
what's new.  Like, MIDDLE WAY had to be so embarrassed when they got kicked off #1 
spot by FORSAKEN!  Way to go FORSAKEN!  MVP award for YAREK ZURN?  MIDDLE WAY's proud 
of him after beating THE USEROUS MERCHANT and getting 13 points.  Talk about yer big 
time losers!  ZALMAN ARVO got smashed by AMBITIOUS GUARD, and lost 18 points!  Don't 
you think the Duelmaster is being unfair?  I think AURELIUS should let VETERAN 
MERCENARY be Duelmaster for a while, without fighting about it.  Who was the wiseguy 
that said ALJAFIR's Duelmaster was paying for drinks at The Vile Vizier?  Don't look 
at me!   
     AAARRGH!!!  I HATE SPYREPORTING!!!  Sorry.  I just had to say it.  MIDDLE WAY 
was ALJAFIR's most avoided team.  Is there some award for that?  Hhmph!  What kind of 
warriors are FIELDS OF ELYSIUM?  MIDDLE WAY, an easy team to beat if I ever saw one, 
can't get them to accept an invitation!  Can MIDDLE WAY's YAREK ZURN be more popular 
than me?  He was challenged the most, but is that really the same?   
     What does a fighter fight for?  I mean, the crowds don't give a hoot if someone 
gets killed.  Not after four more fights.  Hey you guys, don't you think your 
families would like to hear from you?  Write!  (Or have someone write for you.)  
     I really didn't, you know, study when I was a kid.  Who would've guessed I'd be 
a famous Spyreporter?  I gotta leave.  ALJAFIR is like such a dump, and you guys 
smell too much!  I had a fun time, see you later-- Debby Tonte

A Captured Orc?  I have to tell you, I think it's a mistake to go out capturing more
orcs.  We should stick with the domestic breeds; they're more predictable. -- Yarek
Zurn

I am opposed to usury. -- Ursila Vine

An encounter with a Fratsfa Slave leaves one wondering how the Fratsfans ever managed
to accomplish anything. -- Zalman Arvo

Wretched Ambitious Guards!  I didn't need that today. -- Grishort Hurm

Eldoth -- Again we fight, today as the only pair of managed gladiators, at least for
my team.  (pause to examine the newsletter)  Huh!  The only managed pair out of
twelve fights!  That's pathetic. -- Salara Lormin
P.S.  Have you considered defending yourself?

Garou -- I loathe all witches, and the Grey Witch more than any.  But if I can offer
suggestions or answer questions, why, ask away! -- Jorja
P.S.  I'm working on the "charts" question--it was you who asked, right?  Drake is
inactive at this time, so no reaching him with a diplo, and Pagan, compiler of the
Enchiridion is also inactive.  But I have the information...somewhere.  And I may do
an all-arena ad asking for assistance with this, too.

Salara Lormin -- Please!  I've been matched against you twice in a row.  Lord Garou
says I'm pathetic and can't seem to learn, even from an 'obviously superior foe.'  If
I lose again he speaks of branding me...have mercy? -- Elodoth

Great!  Now we're not only gladiators but crowd control  Where did all of these
rabble come from anyhow?  I better get extra pay for this. -- Irraka

Yes, and their dirty and icky, terrible fashion sense. -- Cahalith

Convicted Thief -- You didn't steal my sword or the win.  Some thief you are.  At
least you're not a Convicted Murderer.  Then, I would worry. -- Ithaeur

                            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:
                Win   Loss   Kill      Die
Challenge        +2     -2     +5       -5
Match Up         +1     -1     +1       -5

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

        2.  Tournament Victors won during the course of the contest will gain a one
