                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of TALCAMA!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp 
Eyes, Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  Former top team VINCERE AUT MORI was 
unseated this week as BIG MEAN FISH moved up from 4th ranking to take the top spot 
with a 3-2-1 record for the round.  There were bitter words at SHEPHERDS' guildhouse 
after a 0-5-0 showing this week which dropped the stable into 14th.  Dark Arena 
anyone?  Warriors--remember that glory waits always around the corner!  Witness how 
this week HEAVYMETAL KIDS went 2-3-0 to move up 9 in the rankings.  LOCO REY caught 
the eye of many in the gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested THE VOYEUR and 
was awarded 26 points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, LOCO 
REY put down THE VOYEUR, causing him to lose 23 points of recognition in the process. 
This time out THE PEDOPHILE made his bid for the throne as he challenged CHUNKY 
SUPERDUDE in an all out contest of skill for possession of the title!  Cold and 
lifeless, former Duelmaster CHUNKY SUPERDUDE will fight no more!  THE PEDOPHILE has 
slain him!  Would you believe that over half of the old women in TALCAMA seem to feel 
that they could fight better than you gladiators?   
     Many and various are the arts of battle.  In TALCAMA "art" is a word that has 
long since passed from the language!  My inside sources tell me that the team to beat 
in TALCAMA these days is BIG MEAN FISH.  At least, most blades in town are looking to 
avoid them.  Methinks more than a few here could name the guild it was that spent the 
better part of last week avoiding BIG MEAN FISH.  Indeed it was HELP WANTED.  Loose 
talk at the arena has reached my ears and it but confirms the knowledge that many 
fighters are after HEXALUS.  Watch your back!  A match that raised a few eyebrows at 
the games this week, it seems that PANTHER GROUPER posted a challenge against the 
more highly recognized V'DO.  The results, you ask?  Well, the firebrand PANTHER 
GROUPER was put to death by V'DO.  Remember warriors, this is the discipline of 
steel.   
     What warrior does not hone his years, impatiently waiting for the moment of his 
foe's mortality?  Strange what qualities come forth in the face of certain doom.  
ROCK CROAKER has the town astir with the news of its Dark Arena victory!  This week 
marked the last days of SHADRACH who at 23-16-0 was dispatched to the Dark Arena by 
the command of SHEPHERDS' demanding management.  The warrior's path is harsh.  For 
mediocrity there is but one reward--death.  This past week PANTHER GROUPER, at 7-7-0, 
departed TALCAMA forever.  Some say a warrior is judged by the way he bears arms.  
One thing is sure, better a dagger in hand then a sword on the belt!   
     A thought before I go.  Each warrior practices one style, but must not the wise 
manager learn the secrets of them all?  Sadly warriors, now longer can I keep thy 
company nor savor the ale of thy fine city.  Depart I must and soon!  Till we meet 
again, remember:  a turtle walks slow, hides head in a shell, and harms no one; a 
lion runs to slay its prey.-- Zontani Sharp Eyes

Apex -- Yeah, right! -- D.K. Toker (who doesn't need to run his mouth!)

Thorium -- You are definitely a Heavymetal!  See you this turn! -- Hexalus

Dizz Schuier -- Blind challenges always suck! -- Soricca the Crazed

Assur and Jolly -- Congrats on the grade! -- D.K. Toker

Suave -- That information is on a need-to-know basis, when I decide you need to know,
I will answer your questions.  Until that point, go about your business and no harm
may befall you. -- Den, manager of Impure Thoughts and High Priest of the Allied Axis

Chunky Superdude -- If only you were a little younger, the outcome would have been
much different.  Perhaps this turn I shall have my way with you. -- The Pedophile

Assur -- Whenever the BR stars, count me in!  I had a blast last time and look
forward to it! --D.K. Toker, V.A.M.

Suave -- Hexalus just needs 4 more political pts. and a couple more skills to grad to
retirement if he can survive.  I hope he decides to learn (Damn Scum!) so I can try
and find a solid warrior for the BR. -- D.K. Toker (crossing his fingers!)

It is obvious that the Dark Knights wish to be shown the light.  Allow me to step
forward and blind them with truth.  YOU ARE WORTHLESS!!!  The Dark Knights are so
afraid of the light that they hide behind their black armor and empty threats.  It is
too bad they are unwilling to actually FIGHT us!  I guess our natural light is too
bright for you all to face!  Fear us, for we are here! -- Gemini Goldphoenix,
Overlord of the Avengers of Light!

Captains are responsible for:
     a.  verifying those who wish to participate under the banner of their alliance;
     b.  distribution of prizes should their alliance win the Turf War.
Managers must:
     a.  Submit one (1) RSI Roll-Up Gift Certificate to participate to:
          Baphomet, mgr. Knights Templar (568), DM 47 -- North Fork, or

         they will be fighting under in the North Fork (DM 47) newsletter.
Rules:
     1.  No scoring will begin until a Gift Cert is received.  No exceptions.
     2.  Before a manager can compete, he/she must declare and be verified by the
         Captain of the alliance he/she has claimed for;
     3.  Only one (1) team per player may compete.  NO multiple aliases please.

     4.  The contest will begin on the turn following the January F2F and run for 12
         turns.
     5.  The turn  a declaration and verification will begin the scoring process.
     6.  No declarations or verifications will be accepted after Turn 10 of the Turf
         War 5.
     7.  For the purpose of scoring, I reserve the right to make all final decisions.
Scoring:
                  Win     Loss     Kill     Die

         without having gone above the Adepts bracket at any time...including
         transferred teams.  (I'll be watching for this occurrence!)
Bloodfeuds:
     a.  Bloodfeuds count for all four (4) turns.  However, the same warrior may not
         be used all four turns.  4 turns means 4 separate warriors.  A penalty of
         -10 will be given to the team who violates this.
Special Conditions:
     a.  I reserve the right for all final decisions.
     b.  If I make a mistake, I'll multiply the points by 2.

         x10.
     d.  Each alliance begins with zero (0) points.
     e.  Dark Arena may be used on the first turn of every warrior with no penalty
         (this means a warrior with 0 FE).
     f.  TVs won after the contest begins gain a 25 point one time score once the
         tourney reports are posted in the NL.
     g.  TCs won after the contest begins gain a 50 point one time score with the
         same conditions as noted for TVs.
     h.  NO switching alliance once verified by an alliance that a team has declared
         for.

PRIZES:
     Turf Wars are a "Winner Takes All" type contest.  All prizes and 100% of the RU
Certs will be given to the Captain of the winning alliance and it is his/her
responsibility to give these to the alliance membership.
     I have requested from RSI the following:
     a.  renaming of the orth Fork (DM 47) arena;
     b.  renaming of Dark Arena Monsters;
     c.  known favourite rhythms for one warrior on each team of the winning
         alliance.  This warrior would be in the Initiates or above brackets on the
         last turn of the Turf War (they must have at least one arena fight to
         receive this award).
               Baphomet, Host of TW5
Special Note:  A downchallenge is considered from a higher bracket to a lower
bracket.  Same bracket, more recognition points?  Not a downchallenge!

20 October 2006
In accordance with those rules set forth by the Lady of the Realm, I hereby announce
the formation of a small group of managers calling themselves "The Outsiders".  The
group consists of the following members:
     Doc LeGrande
     Apex
     Street Legal
     Carnage
     Ghoti
     Roadkill
     Valamond
     This group has only one rule.  Respect the play of the managers of this
alliance.  We have no worries about not playing by the rules set forth by others.  We
fight the way we like, and all those in this group appreciate what tools each manager
brings.  We have managers from the Delarquan, Andorian and Free Blade regions.  We
have managers that focus on the tournament arenas, and we have those that focus on
the regular city arenas.  We have those in our ranks that fight with honor and
respect for all, and we have those that have a bloodlust that cannot be quenched.
     Our goal is simple.  To create a ensemble of managers that will show their
prowess in the land of Alastari, and to bring a new level of competition to all those
that share the sands with our warriors.  Our warriors are many throughout the land.
We have no home arena.  We have no pacts we abide by.  Our fighters range from
Mordant to Talcama, from Lapur to Lyratilan, Aruak City to Valamantis, the Primus
arena to Talahya, and many more arenas throughout the land.
     Whether we are sought out or ignored makes no difference to us.  We are what we
are.  We fight how we fight.  And we do it however we wish.  We have no rules.  We
have no leader or ruler.  Be prepared.  We are.

The Dark Knights of the Desolate Empire respond thus to the Avengers of the Light:
Where are you?  EACH AND EVERY Dark Knight can be found in arenas 31 and 52.  Your
pretty words mean less than nothing if you won't fight.  EVERY Dark Knight is more
than willing to back up their talk.  So...we give you three turns in either 31 or 52,
REPEAT 31 or 52 to show up or shut up.  If you don't show we'll let all of Alastari
know the Avengers are indeed cowards! -- Dark Knights of the Desolate Empire
