                                      SPY REPORT

     I was going on vacation, see?  Surf, sun...  But what do those bums say?  "Hit 
the road, Debby Tonte.  IAYE needs a spyreport."  Oh, well.  Too bad, CRYSTAL PALACE, 
but CIRCUS MAXIMUS was just too good to be stopped.  Uncool, I TRAINED THEM.  I mean 
0-0-0 is bad.  Will they will be allowed to fight?  I say use 'em for training 
practice!  The guys at THE A'S -- LOSERS II like really pulled together to get a 
3-1-0 this turn, moving up by 5.  Cut this out and put it in your scrapbooks, CIRCUS 
MAXIMUS!  'Cause they got 4-1-0 and moved up to 1st!  MVP award for SCARECROW?  
CIRCUS MAXIMUS' proud of it after beating QUEEN CHINEE and getting 22 points.  Talk 
about yer major upsets!  MR SELF DESTRUCT's match with BIGFOOTS cost him a loss of 17 
points!  This Duelmaster is like something else!  GARCIA stopped LADY HUNTSMAN dead 
in hers tracks!  Is the Duelmaster really being a real snob to his teammates?  Don't 
ask me!   
     AAARRGH!!!  I HATE SPYREPORTING!!!  Sorry.  I just had to say it.  The warriors 
of LENPROS must be getting lonely.  They were the most avoided team.  Do you guys 
know something that I don't?  Is there some deep dark secret why CIRCUS MAXIMUS' been 
avoiding LENPROS so much?  Or is it just that they're too scared?  Like, is GARBO 
popular, or what?  He was challenged the most in all of IAYE!  He's got a 16-19-0, is 
that good?   
     What does a fighter fight for?  I mean, the crowds don't give a hoot if someone 
gets killed.  Not after four more fights.  Fight, fight, fight.  Is that all you guys 
can do?   
     Remember, blood on a purple robe may stain.  Soak it in cold water, and hand 
wash.  I'm getting tired of writing this stuff, so I'm calling it quits.  Its been 
really albendranius!  Later, guys-- Debby Tonte

Welcome to the real world, Walton, you dunce!  Well done, Pop Idol.  You gave me my
comeuppance.  Health.  Humility.  Honor. -- Lord Walton (feeling the Humility)

Hithelliene -- I challenged YOU?  What was I thinking?  Lucky, lucky me.  Divine
intervention? -- Cardinal Arizpe

     Or something.

Mr. Self Destruct -- Pardon me for taking advantage of Sgt Schmid's clues and advice.
Well, pardon me sort of. -- Lady Huntsman

Garcia -- A salute to the Duelmaster.  Well done!  And congratulations for the ascent
to The Big Time.  Well deserved. -- Lenpro

Good luck to all Iayeans in The Mailer.  Health.  Humility.  Honor.

Cardinal Arizpe -- That ith not the way to convert anyone to your faith, you nathty
cat!  I hope you DROWN in your bathtub. -- Hitheliene
P.Eth. -- I ethpethially didn't like the way you thtarted thcreaming "Kill!  Kill!"
Very bad public relationth.

Princess Diana -- (recoiling in horror)  You're a guy!  Gods, that is SOOO unfair,
words fail me.  Uh, give me a minute or two, though, and I'll think of some other
words to express my shock and disgust. -- Fence Post the revolted
P.S.  And you were STINGY and didn't teach me a single thing!  How ungracious.

Wrote the Book -- You DID?  Who proofed this thing?  Who was your copy editor?  It's
a mess.  The grammar is atrocious, and the punctuation leaves much to be desired, and
the spelling is simply beyond comment. -- Bigfoots
P.S.  And who okayed including a peanutbutter sandwich in the binding?

Windy Wind -- We had that today, blowy blow, and rainy rain, too.  Miserable. -- Dr
Trinaire

Eck -- That was the most unnecessary, unenjoyable experience I can recall, and I've
seen some nasty messes.  Don't yo EVER do that to me again! -- Ghost of Killer Joe

Senator Sedalia and Old Doc Circ -- Circumstances beyond my control make it
impossible to advance your adventures today. -- the Scribe

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!

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.

     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.

Special Scoring:

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.

         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!
