                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, SOLVEN?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed 
to see NAFISAH win a fight and gain 19 points, terribly.  And if variety is the spice 
of life, SOLVEN may be getting bland, as DONNETTA stays top dog in the city.  
Kickbacks and bribes, kickbacks and bribes, how else do you think some of these guys 
win their fights?  Skill?  Ha!   
     Well, let's take a look at some more misdeeds of you miserable sword-boys.  THE 
REPUBLICANS, I suppose you'll be glad to know you were this turn's most avoided team. 
Care to know who is the most afraid of you?  And who led the way in this mass act of 
cowardice?  Let's see, well, whatcha know?  It was KELLUMBO'S KIDS.  Ha ha ha ha!  
Ooh, I'm frightfully impressed, TASHELL was this turn's most challenged warrior.  
Watch that ego swell, sports fans.  I guess I can give a little credit to 
KIDNERGUARDIAN of KELLUMBO'S KIDS for challenging up by 19 to BILBRAY.  
KIDNERGUARDIAN won to get 59 points of recognition.  And we have TASHELL in a 
challenge, going down 12 points for the fight.  Guess what?  I thought TASHELL showed 
great skill and promise when she won victory over FRIST.  All right, so I slept 
through it!  Big deal!   
     Some people like volunteer work in the hospitals.  I volunteer for SOLVEN's 
morgue.  More variety.  Honor is like a chainmail shirt, it only shines through use.  
Certain nameless cowards will doubtless rebuke me on this one.   
     I was about to buy a new quill pen the other day, but some fighter took it for 
an epee.  Forgive me for writing with a dagger.  Phlllt!  Just had to do that before 
I leave the fine city of SOLVEN.  I feel much better now.  I see the crowds are 
getting restless, I must leave now-- Snide Clemens

Team Country -- Got your diplo.  There isn't a lot I can do to help.  I will answer
questions in personals and diplos to the best of my ability, and I'll be glad to
comment on fights with your warriors, but I don't do letters at all anymore.
      It is true that this is not a talkative arena at the moment.  Some effort is
being made to persuade other managers on Noblish Island to transfer here when their
teams charter, and that may help.  Also, as of this turn you hold in your hand, The
Zoo will be replaced by Middle Way whatever, 15 I think, so I'll be running a full
team here again, which will automatically mean more personals and more chances for
our warriors to encounter each other. -- Leeta/Jorja
P.S.  There is also the option of closing down this team (which can't be moved to any
other regular-speed arena at this point), and starting a new one in, for instance,
Aruak City, DM 11, where lots of people talk constantly, often in two or three voices
each.

Tundra -- Well, at least you couldn't bury me in the sand.  It was frozen! -- Benito
Chatte, on his way out the door

25 September 2006
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!

         turns.
     5.  The turn  a declaration and verification will begin the scoring process.

         War 5.
     7.  For the purpose of scoring, I reserve the right to make all final decisions.
Scoring:
                  Win     Loss     Kill     Die

         must be in the Adepts or lower brackets on the turn they are declared
         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.
     c.  If you claim I did, and *YOU* are wrong, I'll subtract points at the rate of
         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.
     i.  Only 7 teams are permitted per alliance for the Turf War 5.
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!
