                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, Warriors of CALEAM.  Allow this humble servant Novgorodny Vir to give 
you a respite from the fights in the form of this Spyreport.  GOLDEN CANYON posted a 
nice gain, to come in 2nd.  Everybody loves a winner...  Practice pays for CLEMMIE, 
who pummelled PLEXIGLASSJAWJOE, to pocket 8 points.  A certain someone should cut 
down on the drinking and practice more, after losing 5 points to CLEMMIE.  (Discrete 
enough, PLEXIGLASSJAWJOE?) NOBLE ASSASSIN found out that CALEAM isn't a democracy.  
You've gotta be the best to be Duelmaster here!  So who was the warrior seen charging 
into immovable walls and challenging dead trees?  Someone's got a basic problem...   
     My mother wished me to avoid conflict, and seek the gentle trade of Spyreporter. 
But warriors aren't supposed to avoid fights!  If challenges were horses, PIKE could 
open up a fast food joint!   
     The moving sword slashes, and having slashed, moves on...  Oh hard!  that to 
strike a flame, the match itself must needs be wasting!   
     Leave me now, you base fools!  My fingers tire and I fear my incessant prattling 
may cause unfair judgement upon my impeccable character.  Do not despair!  I shall 
return!-- Novgorodny Vir

Enlightened Being -- I don't see why Clemmie thinks highly of you.  You're a dwarf,
and it just seems WRONG to think highly of a dwarf.  But I suppose one could think,
um, lowly but in a respectful way?  Anyway, this arena is sick if somebody like me,
or even you, is contesting for the title.  I mean, look at my ranking!  Look at
yours!  It'd be enough to make me cry, except that I'm a gladiator, and gladiators
don't DO that. -- Golderie

Iron Forge -- I knew a guy once who used mesquite for his anvil.  Maybe he should've
called his place of business the Wooden Forge, hmm? -- Maureen
P.S.  No, really, he did.  I guess it was more reliable than some random rock.

Kung-Fu Master.  (sigh)  I never did master kung-fu.  I couldn't bring myself to
shout every time I hit somebody, you know?  Just too embarrassing. -- Clemmie

Orth -- Well, I'm glad you soon recovered.  I was a little worried, to tell the
truth.  I mean, I really unlocked you, and I didn't want it to end up fatally. --
Loris Key

Smaynurn -- We spend whole evenings playing with your name, did you know that?  It's
been a great boon to the team, a lot better than just sitting around drowning our
sorrows.  Besides, they can swim. -- Pike
P.S.  For instance, Loris came up with Nrunyams, but nobody else liked 'em.  Too much
molasses.  And Clemmie contributed Marsunny which was... well, it was interesting.
I'm not really into almond paste, but with the raisins and spices and then stuffed
into a pastry shell, it wasn't bad.  Better than the Nrunyams, anyway.  I dunno what
Golderie's doing, except that it's taking a long time and smells like moonshine.
We'll see.

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!

     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:

Special Scoring:
     a.  Each mention in the Spy Report is worth 2 points (team mentions only!)
     b.  Each Style Master is worth 2 points.

Champions:
     a.  Champions may be declared, but are not mandatory.  If declared, the Champion
         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!
