                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, ZUWAYZA?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Later days, CUNNING RUNTS, since IDES OF 
MARCH took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  IDES OF MARCH turned 
their 3-0-0 turn into a 2nd place rank in the listings this turn.  Any better than 
this, and you get put on hit lists.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed to see 
MARCELLUS win a fight and gain 18 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, ARCHIPPUS beat TIMES 
and TIMES lost 19 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  And it's out with the old, in 
with the new, as HOT ROD II takes the Title and last week's bar tab from the old 
Duelmaster.  Heh, heh.  The Drunken Ox, humph!  I've tasted better ale at mortuaries. 
Where do they get this stuff?  From ZUWAYZA's trash dumps?   
     Well, let's take a look at some more misdeeds of you miserable sword-boys.  
ZUWAYZA, I am losing what little hope I had in you.  CUNNING RUNTS the most avoided 
team?  What insult will suffice, I cannot say.  And who led the way in this mass act 
of cowardice?  Let's see, well, whatcha know?  It was IDES OF MARCH.  Ha ha ha ha!  
TIMES was challenged more times this turn than the Duelmaster.  Now was the DM 
insulted or feared?  Heh, heh.  And we have ANTONIUS in a challenge, going down 12 
points for the fight.  Guess what?  I thought ANTONIUS showed great skill and promise 
when he bested ORNAMENT.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     Ah, now we come to my favorite part, where we see all the guys who are dead and 
gone, and get to see if their team cared.  Titanium shields and bamboo daggers, guess 
what brave team is developing these kinds of weapons?   
     What does the ZUWAYZA arena have in common with the inns?  It's just as 
comfortable to sleep in either place.  Ha ha ha ha!  Well, I've had enough of this 
drivel, and I'm sure you have too.  Off like a dirty shirt of padded leather.  Glad 
to see the back of this place-- Snide Clemens

Mini Me -- Pshaw!  You call that small?  I'm sure that I have contributors who can do
much more tiny and intricate work. -- Ornament
P.S.  And learn more skills from such an uneven challenge, too.

Archippus -- Stir up those waters, brother, stir 'em! -- Hot Rod
P.S.  I never did care for boating, so it's nothing to me.

Jack Hamma -- Not today, not in front of MY office, bub. -- Times
P.S.  But feel free to set a "broken pavement" trap for Hot Rod.  He needs something
to slow him down.

Jewel -- In every blow of faceting, there must be pain, but the result is greater
brilliance and fire.  Rise above it. -- Black Belt
P.S.  Hey, I may be a martial artist, but remember that name contains "artist" as
well as martial.  Besides, the old bustard who taught me was full of sayings like
that.

Nicanor -- Oh, well, if you LIKE your waters troubled with trash, then don't mind ME.
-- Trash Collector

Deep Thought -- Re Jhelum, very true.  Though since I'm on maintenance, you hold the
fate of that arena in your hands alone.  Alas that it is not the only two-team arena,
and that there are some which don't run simply because nobody shows up!  What a waste
of opportunity. -- Jorja

Our congratulations to Dan Steppe. -- Jorja and the Magnificent Mags

You know, if I had a volunteer or two from Zuwayza, I might be able to fold this
arena into the Edge of Night storyline currently running in Lapur, Morya, and
Malcorn, with probable expansion into Murska and Willaf.  Just say the word, and
you're in. -- the Scribe, a glutton for over-work

        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

        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.

            (warrior must be ranked Initiate or above, must be alive, and must have

        4.  +1 Skill bonus potion for each manager on the winning alliance.  Bonus
