                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, warriors of SUNSET!  Once again I've been called out of retirement 
for my abilities and insights into Spyreporting.  Woof!  NOMADIC TRIBE were a bunch 
of dogs after LIGHT BRIGADE got through with 'em!  2nd ain't so sweet as 1st!  Up 'n 
down.  Up 'n down.  Rankings always change.  Up 'n down.  I think I'm gonna be...  
Well, LIGHT BRIGADE's 1st moved them up to 3-2-1 place.  Some people say I ramble too 
much, I don't say anything relevant.  I repeat myself.  I ramble.  Well KANO CLAN 
moved up 3, to 7th.  What's with DANTE FURIOSO?  He actually beat SEA DOGS' SURLY 
DECKHAND, and walked away with 19 more points from the fight.  Laughs were big at 
LIGHT BRIGADE while they watched ASSASSIN clobber HAMMETT.  He lost 11 points and got 
bruised from objects thrown from the stands.  Har har har!  Did KNOTHANDLER wimp out, 
or just get lazy?  Anyway, he's not Duelmaster anymore.  I'm sure SUNSET is excited 
about KEROUAC, the new Duelmaster from LITERATE LOONS.  (remember?)  But when you've 
seen as many as I have...  Advice to fighters with a 1 will--give up fighting!   
     If at first you don't succeed, avoid.  That'll get you in the Spyreports.  
SUNSET thinks GRIM FANDANGO and their 452-388-15 is too much!  If at first you don't 
succeed, give up...  The bums at NOMADIC TRIBE couldn't face the challenges from GRIM 
FANDANGO!  No excuse for that!  What do people see in BARON TONE?  His 14-11-0?  
SWORD OPERA ain't talkin', but he's got 59 points.  BLEDD of GRIM FANDANGO knows how 
to pick 'em.  It challenged FOORMAN of LIGHT BRIGADE who is up by 23.  Now was this a 
wise move?  BLEDD perhaps got its just desserts, seeing as it won victory over 
FOORMAN and ended up with 86 recognition points.   
     There have been some calls to lengthen the time limit.  Do you want the fighters 
to walk away, or not?  Someone told MAGGOT that KANO CLAN never Bloodfeuded, that 
she'd have an easy kill.  Well, I'm sure whoever misled you is right sorry.  Is it my 
imagination, or are fighters getting younger every day?  To die so young, so 
gloriously!   
     Who knows what the future holds for a warrior.  More fights, there's no doubt.  
The end of another Spyreport!  That's cause for celebration in my book!  I don't want 
to overstay my welcome...-- Olaf Modeen

Kano Clan -- Thelonius has managed to fight off Mega Roku again.  I must say I am
surprised.  Sadly, he will not be available to fight Roku again this turn.  He will,
however, be back for your final shot at a bloodfeud. -- Nomad and Thelonius

Surly -- Oh, now you are making em...surly?  Ouch. -- Ullrich

Helle's Belles -- Well turn two was better than turn one.  But thankfully not against
us.  Thar appreciated the challenge and I the match-up. -- Jagare

Pilson -- You were everywhere.  On top of the fight, on top of me, jumping up and
down, bouncing off the walls, totally mobbing me almost to death.  I am glad it was
only "almost."  I'm not ready to die.  I still have to do Bacon's homework. --
Breakspere
P.S.  Bacon...now there's an idea.

Dougal -- That beat is really bad.  Singcopated I might have managed, but how can
anyone sing to something to that?  It's worse than modern poetry. -- Rose Lamont

Whitman -- Not today.  This is, for reasons I don't quite follow, not a good day for
persiflage.  Something about "changes in barometric pressure."  I'm glad it isn't my
problem. -- Baron Tone

Gamma -- Couldn't you have radiated some more skills my way? -- Merry Leona

Raider -- So?  Go raid, then. -- Stellita

Ghost of Ursa Minor -- So?  Why can't we do them together? -- Ghost of Rossmont

I don't think we congratulated Nevermoor last time!  Shocking.  Congratulations. --
Jorja and the Sword Opera cast

                                 *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
