                                      SPY REPORT

     Oh, hi.  Its just little 'ol Debby Tonte.  Thought I'd check out ZUWAYZA to see 
what's new.  One team deserves special mention 'cause they moved up 2 after going 
4-0-0.  Keep it up, TROUBLED WATERS!  MVP award for BART SIMPSON?  CUNNING RUNTS' 
proud of him after beating PUBLIUS and getting 22 points.  Talk about yer big time 
losers!  PUBLIUS got smashed by BART SIMPSON, and lost 15 points!  Like, WHITE 
CHOCOATE must be pretty gutsy!  She challenged the Duelmaster from FUNKY FOLK.  Does 
this gal have a death wish or what!  Was that a tear I saw in WHITE CHOCOATE's eye, 
as she took over Duelmastership?  And wasn't PETE MOSS fit to be tied!  Is the 
Duelmaster really being a real snob to his teammates?  Don't ask me!   
     AAARRGH!!!  I HATE SPYREPORTING!!!  Sorry.  I just had to say it.  The warriors 
of WALI'S FINEST must be getting lonely.  They were the most avoided team.  Do you 
guys know something that I don't?  Hhmph!  What kind of warriors are BANZAI 
BARBARIANS?  WALI'S FINEST, an easy team to beat if I ever saw one, can't get them to 
accept an invitation!  Like, is ORNAMENT popular, or what?  She was challenged the 
most in all of ZUWAYZA!  She's got a 6-10-0, is that good?  People were asking me did 
MINI ME REALLY challenge ORNAMENT?  (all right, maybe they didn't, but it sounded 
good!) It wasn't a spectacular fight, or anything, but ORNAMENT wants me to write 
about it since she defeated MINI ME.  Satisfied?  MARCELLUS must not be a good enough 
fighter to get in fair fights.  He challenged ERIC CARTMAN.  15 is a big difference.  
(Well, that's what they tell me.) I thought MARCELLUS showed great skill and promise 
when he won victory over ERIC CARTMAN.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!  
     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!  Quit laughing!  Just because 
ANICETUS ENNIUS had 5-6-1 was no reason for TEAM CHAOS to send him to the Dark Arena! 
Stop it!  WHITE CHOCOATE really fought hard against PETE MOSS.  That'll teach FUNKY 
FOLK not to go and kill any of WALI'S FINEST's guys again, huh!  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 know how much you like reading this stuff, but I really 
should stop.  Remember you guys, ease up sometimes!  Chill out!  Later, Debby Tonte

Ms. Imnpact -- Sorry about the trip to the infirmary.  But it was great to win my
first fight ever.  All advice welcome. -- Banzai Barbarians

Eric Cartman -- You're a runt?  I'd never have guessed.  I mean, you're shorter than
I am, but so many people are.  Still, it probably isn't your fault.  Your mother
probably ate too well during her pregnancy or something. -- Trash Collector

Jack Hamma -- You're out there tearing up the roads even as I write, aren't you?
Gods, the nerve of some people!  Beat me in the arena if you must, but leave the
roads in good condition for the carriages, dammit. -- Hot Rod

Dan Steppe -- What, you're still here?  I thought you'd graduated already.  Why
haven't you?  You're not exactly overburdened with finesse, but within your stylistic
limits, I'd think you were ready to go. -- Black Belt

Pete Moss -- Yes, okay, the cover.  Man of the Week.  Maybe an interview for the
Gardening section?  And, it would appear, a certificate of excellence (aka Invitation
to the Isle) from the Commission.  You made out very well from this turn. -- Times
P.S.  I don't care what your time is worth, you don't get paid for the interview.  Be
glad we don't charge you for the advertizing!

Stewie Griffin -- It isn't enough to be cunning, little fellow.  No less authority
than Dove Chocolates advises us to decorate our lives.  What are you using to
ornament your life? -- Ornament, provisionally concerned

Anti -- Excuses are unacceptable, although we appreciate the personals.  If you find
yourself needing a e-newsletter and not getting one, contact me. -- Jorja (aka Livia
AT reality DOT com)

Nicanor -- That kind of thing happens.  Generally we don't get excited about it. --
Ornament

Archippus -- The real question is, are they CHICKEN wings, or BUFFALO wings?  On the
answer to this hangs many things, including a major dose of bicarb. -- Hot Rod

Deep Thought -- Every trash can hides unexpected treasure, no? -- Trash Collector

Our congratulations to Pete Moss. -- Jorja and the Magnificent Mags

All -- C'mon guys and dolls, only 14 warriors fought last turn.  Zuwayza is starting
to look as barren as DM 4 Jhelum.  That arena only has me and Jorja, so if one of us
didn't show, the arena doesn't run.  If anyone wants to start a team in DM 4, they
would be the only unchartered stable, and we would love to have some more
competition. -- Deep Thought

Pete Moss -- Congrats on your ascension to ADM, and after only 20 fights.  Is Dan
your next lunger to take the next "steppe"?  Oh ha ha yourself, the Runts thought it
was funny.  I'll be here all week, two shows a night. -- Deep Thought

All -- Wee Man just earned a Master rating, my first.  I know this is a small
accomplishment for most, but it's new for me.  I like the idea of still having so

                                 *TURF WAR VI RULES*
                            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
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
            warrior(s) win such status.
        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.

Prizes:
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
submit a list of each manager on the winning alliance to RSI at the completion of the
contest for the non-Certificate prizes.

The following prizes have been secured from RSI:
        1.  Renaming of the North Fork (DM 47) arena;
        2.  Renaming of Dark Arena Monsters (one for each manager in the winning
            alliance);
        3.  Known Favorites for one warrior on each team of the winning alliance
            (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
            potion must be applied to a living warrior from (DM 47)
        5.  +1 Skill bonus potion (one) for each manager who fights in all 10 rounds
            AND 45 fights of the Turf War.  Bonus potion must be applied to a living

These awards will be listed by the Moderator for claiming from RSI (Lee) within 4
turns of the end of TW VI.

dealings during the course of the contest.  Their decisions will be final.  All
