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 DUELMASTER W L K POINTS TEAM NAME ENLIGHTENED BEING 4642 10 4 0 78 PHILANTHROPISTS (467) CHALLENGER CHAMPIONS W L K POINTS TEAM NAME -SAILOR VENUS 4326 26 16 0 102 SHERWOOD FOREST (438) -SUPER FREAK 4532 9 0 0 95 WARCKERS (362) CHAMPIONS W L K POINTS TEAM NAME -DARKLY 4572 8 1 1 86 WARCKERS (362) CHALLENGER ADEPTS W L K POINTS TEAM NAME CLEMMIE 4630 11 12 1 64 GOLDEN CANYON (290) ADEPTS W L K POINTS TEAM NAME LORIS KEY 4706 5 0 1 49 GOLDEN CANYON (290) GOLDERIE 4657 8 8 1 44 GOLDEN CANYON (290) -GOLDMINE 4681 4 1 1 44 WARCKERS (362) -SCREAMER 4538 5 1 0 40 HOME LIFE (453) -HORRIBLE 4675 4 2 1 35 SHERWOOD FOREST (438) CHALLENGER INITIATES W L K POINTS TEAM NAME PLEXIGLASSJAWJOE 4650 6 3 0 33 PHILANTHROPISTS (467) -BLOOD MOON 4507 6 7 0 31 WARCKERS (362) ORTH 4643 6 3 0 27 PHILANTHROPISTS (467) SMAYNURN 4656 6 3 0 25 PHILANTHROPISTS (467) INITIATES W L K POINTS TEAM NAME MAUREEN 4702 4 3 0 22 GOLDEN CANYON (290) -ORC SKIN 4689 3 2 1 22 SHERWOOD FOREST (438) -AGAIN 4704 2 0 0 22 HOME LIFE (453) -SHE SCREAMS 4678 4 1 0 20 HOME LIFE (453) -SEED 4705 1 1 0 16 SHERWOOD FOREST (438) IRON FORGE 4707 2 2 0 11 PHILANTHROPISTS (467) -SLOW BURN 4701 2 1 0 11 HOME LIFE (453) PIKE 4708 1 3 0 6 GOLDEN CANYON (290) -KOKANEE 4699 0 3 0 3 HOME LIFE (453) '-' denotes a warrior who did not fight this turn.

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. 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! 5 October 2006 *Turf War IV Rules* Everyone may participate; known alliances, new alliances, or temporary alliances created to compete in the Turf War! However, to participate, each alliance must: A. Announce the alliance and the Captain of the alliance in the North Fork (DM 47) newsletter. Captains are responsible for: a. verifying those who wish to participate under the banner of their alliance; b. distribution of prizes should their alliance win the Turf War. Managers must: a. Submit one (1) RSI Roll-Up Gift Certificate to participate to: Baphomet, mgr. Knights Templar (568), DM 47 -- North Fork, or Rick Stringer 13 St. Michael's CT Elkton, MD 21921 b. Announce their intent to compete with manager name, team name and alliance they will be fighting under in the North Fork (DM 47) newsletter. Rules: 1. No scoring will begin until a Gift Cert is received. No exceptions. 2. Before a manager can compete, he/she must declare and be verified by the Captain of the alliance he/she has claimed for; 3. Only one (1) team per player may compete. NO multiple aliases please. Violations will result in disqualification. 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: 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 Downchallenge -10 xx -10 xx Dark Arena +10 -5 xx xx Special Scoring: a. Each mention in the Spy Report is worth 2 points (team mentions only!) b. Each Style Master is worth 2 points. c. Duelmaster Throne 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!
