                                      SPY REPORT

     Ready for some action-packed adventure, some thrills, chills and spills?  Well 
fergit it, cause this is the Spyreport for XOCHITHLAN.  One team deserves special 
mention 'cause they moved up 0 after going 4-1-0.  Keep it up, THE MIDDLE WAY!  MVP 
award for SNEAK?  CHEAP SHOTS' proud of her after beating XYOKOR YAHL and getting 18 
points.  Talk about yer major upsets!  XYOKOR YAHL's match with SNEAK cost him a loss 
of 9 points!  Like, MAELSTROM FURY must be pretty gutsy!  He challenged the 
Duelmaster from CHEAP SHOTS.  Does this guy have a death wish or what!  This 
Duelmaster is like something else!  CHUCKLE stopped MAELSTROM FURY dead in his 
tracks!  Is the Duelmaster really being a real snob to his teammates?  Don't ask me!  
     So just why would someone becomes a warrior anyway?  It can't be for these 
really neat Spyreports can it?  THE MIDDLE WAY was XOCHITHLAN's most avoided team.  
Is there some award for that?  Hhmph!  What kind of warriors are CHEAP SHOTS?  THE 
MIDDLE WAY, an easy team to beat if I ever saw one, can't get them to accept an 
invitation!  Like, is IGNORE popular, or what?  It was challenged the most in all of 
XOCHITHLAN!  It's got a 10-7-0, is that good?  For sure, I was holding my breath when 
I found out AKRAM AL' ABBAS challenged MORI NEB.  After all, haven't THE MYRMIDON and 
THE MIDDLE WAY had a long standing duel in XOCHITHLAN?  It wasn't a spectacular 
fight, or anything, but MORI NEB wants me to write about it since she overcame AKRAM 
AL' ABBAS.  Satisfied?   
     Challenges, revenges, Bloodfeuds.  All XOCHITHLAN ever talks about is fighting!  
Me, I'm more laid back.  Like was that some Bloodfeud, or what?  (MORI NEB vs. AKRAM 
AL' ABBAS, that is.) What if they had a fight and nobody showed up?  I'd be out of a 
job, that's what!!!   
     I really didn't, you know, study when I was a kid.  Who would've guessed I'd be 
a famous Spyreporter?  I gotta leave.  XOCHITHLAN is like such a dump, and you guys 
smell too much!  Remember you guys, ease up sometimes!  Chill out!  Later, Debby

going to make us really work for our victories now, aren't you? -- Mori Neb

Chuckle -- Bah, it's you, laughing like a hyena. -- Belle Cor

Smirk -- Think I'd put up with that TODAY?  Listen, I've got a headache, and people
are very CAREFUL around me when I'm out of sorts.  And I am.  The only sort I've got
left is short-tempered. -- Quia Rayne

Adrasai Siren -- You do shriek like one, that's the truth.  Makes me wish I'd cut
your throat or something, you know?  My ears may never be the same. -- Opara Persi

     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

         without having gone above the Adepts bracket at any time...including
         transferred teams.  (I'll be watching for this occurrence!)
     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.

     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
     i.  Only 7 teams are permitted per alliance for the Turf War 5.
     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!

20 October 2006
In accordance with those rules set forth by the Lady of the Realm, I hereby announce
the formation of a small group of managers calling themselves "The Outsiders".  The
group consists of the following members:
     Doc LeGrande
     Street Legal
     This group has only one rule.  Respect the play of the managers of this
alliance.  We have no worries about not playing by the rules set forth by others.  We
fight the way we like, and all those in this group appreciate what tools each manager
brings.  We have managers from the Delarquan, Andorian and Free Blade regions.  We
have managers that focus on the tournament arenas, and we have those that focus on
the regular city arenas.  We have those in our ranks that fight with honor and
respect for all, and we have those that have a bloodlust that cannot be quenched.
     Our goal is simple.  To create a ensemble of managers that will show their
prowess in the land of Alastari, and to bring a new level of competition to all those
that share the sands with our warriors.  Our warriors are many throughout the land.
We have no home arena.  We have no pacts we abide by.  Our fighters range from
Mordant to Talcama, from Lapur to Lyratilan, Aruak City to Valamantis, the Primus
arena to Talahya, and many more arenas throughout the land.
     Whether we are sought out or ignored makes no difference to us.  We are what we
are.  We fight how we fight.  And we do it however we wish.  We have no rules.  We
have no leader or ruler.  Be prepared.  We are.

20 October 2006
The Dark Knights of the Desolate Empire respond thus to the Avengers of the Light:
Where are you?  EACH AND EVERY Dark Knight can be found in arenas 31 and 52.  Your
pretty words mean less than nothing if you won't fight.  EVERY Dark Knight is more
than willing to back up their talk.  So...we give you three turns in either 31 or 52,
REPEAT 31 or 52 to show up or shut up.  If you don't show we'll let all of Alastari
know the Avengers are indeed cowards! -- Dark Knights of the Desolate Empire

I received a Gift Certificate from someone.  I'm assuming it's for entry into the
Turf War 5.  Whoever sent this to me...please email me at rbaphomets@yahoo.com.
