                                      SPY REPORT

     Thankyouthankyou.  It's great for me, The Unknown Spymaster to be back in 
CHIMLEVTAL.  Hope you enjoy the show.  Oh, who am I kidding?  I already got paid!  We 
now have a new top team for all of you guys to dogpile on.  MIDDLE WAY 7 now holds 
the crown and they are betting they can keep it.  Coming up with a solid 4-1-1 
outing, DARQUE FORCES has advanced 4 places in the rankings.  Hey everybody, watch 
out for PISON, who flew up 21 points in the rankings after mashing EMBEZZLING SCRIBE 
like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  Ya know, some days it doesn't pay to walk 
out on the sands.  MANDIN ORLE lost to JACK SPARROW and drops 7 points.  In front of 
all the crowds, LODEN NORVIS took the Duelmaster's crown for his own.  I give the bum 
two weeks.  Can you believe they are paying me 10 gold to deliver this stuff?   
     Let's dig a little deeper into what's happening in the CHIMLEVTAL arena.  CABIN 
BOY of PIRATES had better have a good reason for challenging down 8 points in a 
challenge which he lost.  I thought CABIN BOY showed great skill and promise when he 
was defeated by GILEAD.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     Remember that an arena is not always a safe place to be, but it is one of the 
most interesting, though!  Remember:  alliances are great, but try and take your ally 
in the arena with you and see what happens.   
     I think I had better cut this one short.  It's been nice chatting to those of 
you whom I have not offended yet.  Well, there goes another Spy Report.  Good luck in 
next week's fights.  Its been real, and its been fun, but it hasn't been real 
fun...-- The Unknown Spymaster

Jorja -- Hello again.  I keep activating old teams here and there to see if anything
(specifically any warrior) ignites some interest.  This arena looks promising, though
it pains my heart to see my home so desolate.  Perhaps I should start another war.
The last one kept this place kicking for over a decade. -- Master Darque

All -- Greetings to everyone.  I can't say that I recognize anyone here apart from
Jorja, but I have been gone awhile.  My name is Master Darque and I manage Darque
Forces.

Jorja -- I'm trying to be optimistic about this team, but it is pretty horrid. --
Master Darque

Loden Norvis -- Speaking for Dogs generally, we resent the implications in your
column last cycle. -- Spot, manager of Red Dog Gang, Aradi

Cabin Boy -- Well, THAT is embarrassing. -- Lumus Nelp

Chaldea -- That was darned sneaky!  I was lead to believe you were some beautiful,
exotic woman--that armor is explicit and massively deceitful--and then you turned out
to be a guy!  By the time I recovered my aplomb, I'd lost.  Bummer. -- Loden Norvis
P.S.  No, seriously, good fight.

Jack Sparrow -- I was hoping to see a sparrow fall, but it was not to be.  At least,
not today. -- Oswell Quirn

Wakizashi -- Will I need chopsticks to eat that? -- Mandin Orle

Amur -- Good try.  I like "good tries" by guys who lose to me.  Let me buy you a
drink. -- Ombert Qurl
P.S.  Just one, though!  We've both got practicing to do.

                                 *TURF WAR VII RULES*
                            Starting Nov 2010 (12 turns)
           Bring acclaim and glory to the North Fork (DM47) arena.

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 Captain of the alliance in the North Fork (DM 47)
newsletter.
        2.  Indicate in the newsletter which Captain/alliance you will join.
        3.  Announcements made on the D2 Forums or elsewhere will not be accepted.

Captains are responsible for:
        1.  Verifying/authorizing, in the North Fork newsletter those who wish to
participate under the banner of their alliance. (Lack of participant indication of
joining and/or lack of lack of Captain confirmation will delay a team's participation
in the Turf War.)
        2.  Distribution of prizes should their alliance win the Turf War.
        3.  Submit two (2) RSI Roll-Up Certificates to participate. (Note: Captains
may, if they wish, submit certs for all potential members of their alliance.)

Participating managers who are not Captains must:
        1.  Submit two (2) RSI Roll-Up Certificates to participate (Unless already
submitted by Captain. Note: extras will not be returned, but will go into the winning
pool of prizes.)
        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 an RSI Gift Certificate is
received, and participant indication and captain confirmation are posted in the North
Fork newsletter. 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 in the newsletter
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
(including team point adjustments) from the Turf War (so be sure to take any multiple
teams OFF of Team Maintenance and be certain not to run any other team warriors).
               d.  Scoring will NOT be retroactive for teams/alliances that do not
properly declare or get captain confirmation 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 score 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. (Note:
the intent is to have a very thorough set of rules so that few decisions, if any, are
required from the moderators.)

Scoring will be as follows for Fights:
                                   Win   Loss   Kill      Die
Up Challenge                        +2     -2     +5       -5
Down Challenge                       0     -2      0       -5
Match Up                            +1     -1     +1       -5
Bloodfeud Challenge (Up or Down)    +2     -5     +5      -10
Champion **                         x2     x2     x2       x2
Dark Arena*                        +10     -5     xx       xx
Tournament Death***                                        -5
Halfway (6 round total) best alliance win/loss percentage ****
Final (12 round total) alliance w/l% percentage ****
    *After 2nd win in DA, warrior scores no additional points for wins,
    ** A Champion's double score applies to his score only -- not to the opponent.
    *** No warrior may be substituted without the proper use of the DA or arena death
or death in a tournament. There must be a maximum of five only on a team at any point
and time. (The penalty for such substitution is -10 points.) Points awarded for
tournament participation are 5 for any entrant, 15 for a TV and 25 for a TC. Death in
a tournament negates any tournament points gained and results in a-5 score.
    ***** Halfway points scored are 25, 20, 15, 10, 5, 5, 5 (etc) for 1st, 2nd, 3rd
(etc). (to qualify for any of these points the alliance must have fought 75% of its
possible fights.) Final 12 Round points scored are 40, 30, 20, 15, 10, 5, 5, 5 (etc)
for the 1st, 2nd, 3rd (etc). (to qualify for any of these points the alliance must
have fought 75% of its possible fights.)

Special Scoring Considerations for the Turf War are as follows:
Spy Report mention (team name only)              +2 
     1. No matter how many mentions or stylemasters, an individual team can score
only +2 in each category per round
Style Master                                     +2
      1. No matter how many mentions or stylemasters, an individual team can score
only +2 in each category per round
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 have fought at least one previous fight in the North Fork
(DM47 arena) to be able to be declared a champion. 

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 15 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 25 points.  This bonus will apply EACH time a warrior(s) win
such status.
        4.  Points awarded for tournament participation are 5 for any entrant, (15
total for a TV and 25 total for a TC.) However, death in a tournament will result in
a -5 score for that tournament. (If a warrior TV's and is subsequently killed in a
tournament the points scored are -5 for that tournament.)
        5.  Points for TVs and TCs and tournament deaths 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 five (5) teams allowed per alliance for the
Turf War VII.
        4.  The Dark Arena may be used on the first turn only, of every warrior,
without penalty.

Prizes:
The Turf War is normally a "winner take all" contest.  However, for TWVII, a prize
will be awarded each of the twelve turns to the individual team/manager that fights
five fights and has the best w/l record that turn. (Tiebreakers are in order - kills,
recognition points earned.) All prizes and 100% of the Gift Certificates will be
awarded to the Captain of the winning alliance at the end of the competition.  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.

     All entry fees (rollup certs) are awarded to the winning alliance, except for
the twelve reserved for the individual winning manager each week.)
