                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, Warriors of ZENSU.  Allow this humble servant Novgorodny Vir to give 
you a respite from the fights in the form of this Spyreport.  The boys at XCOM ALPHA 
left the arena dejected, after being kicked out of the top spot by ADVENTURE TIME 2.  
Good show!  BOTCHED & BUNGLED had cause to celebrate, after JACK LUCAS got 11 points 
by beating DUNCAN.  Win some, lose some.  Speaking of which, GREAT WHITE FLOYD was 
winsome, after beating VINCENT and seeing him lose 6 points.  TREE TRUNKS 
successfully staved off a grab for the roses by CONVICTED ASSASSIN of ZENSU.  Does 
ZENSU have no one talented enough to dethrone her?  Word has it one team in ZENSU is 
taking speech lessons to try to bore their opponent to death.  I'll bet it works.   
     And how sociable are ZENSU's warriors?  Come, let us see.   
     Is there life after death?  Pragmatics (and warriors) know there is death after 
life!  Questions are being raised about the disposing of severed body parts in the 
arena.  A certain tavern in ZENSU would I avoid!   
     Do not think spyreporting in ZENSU is the highlight of my life.  As if buffeted 
by forces of nature beyond my control, I must take my leave of this place.  Can 
anything compare to the pleasure of writing Spyreports for ZENSU?  On that giddy note 
I take my leave-- Novgorodny Vir

   The Turf Wars are coming. The Turf Wars are coming. Come one; come all. Gather

your alliance or collection of 2-4 teams and join in the competition. Hurry up! While 
Feb 2016 seems so far away, it is only six or so turns away, and it does take a while 
to make sure you have a team in DM47, communicate to find a group, send in certs, 
announce in writing in DM47, etc. etc. Teams of all levels and managers of all types, 
including newbies, find themselves competing quite well in this type of competition. 
Let's make the tenth anniversary (TWX) the biggest and best ever.
     This 10th competition will be hosted and moderated by the triumvirate of Assur, 
Master Darque and Oz The All-Wonderful.    
     Anyone may participate: known alliances, new alliances, or temporary alliances 
created solely to compete in the Turf War!  

To participate, each alliance must:
    a.  Announce the Captain of the alliance in the North Fork (DM 47) newsletter.
    b.  Indicate in the newsletter which Captain/alliance you will join.
    c.  Announcements made on the D2 Forums or elsewhere will not be accepted.

Captains are responsible for:
    a.  Verifying/authorizing, in the North Fork newsletter those who wish to 
        participate under the banner of their alliance. The confirmation/verification 
        must occur after, or in the same newsletter, but not before, the participant's 
        declaration. (Lack of participant indication of joining and/or subsequent lack 
        of Captain confirmation will delay a team's participation in the Turf War.)
    b.  Distribution of prizes should their alliance win the Turf War.
    c.  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:
    a.  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.)
    b.  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 or Chatzy will not be accepted.
        1.  No scores will be tabulated until two RSI Gift Certificates are received, 
            and participant indication and captain confirmation are posted in the 
            North Fork newsletter. NO EXCEPTIONS.
        2.  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 same or 
            subsequent newsletter by the alliance Captain they will represent.
        3.  Only one (1) team per player may compete.  No arena multiple teams or 
            aliases will be allowed.  Violations will result in immediate manager 
            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).
        4.  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.
        5.  No declarations or verifications will be accepted after Turn 3 of the Turf 

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 

Scoring will be as follows for Fights:

Team Points:
    a.  Fights made: (includes DA fights) 
            1 = 0 points,  2 = 0 points,  3 = 1 point,  4 = 3 points,  5 = 5 points
    b.  Wins earned: 
            1 = 1 point,  2 = 3 points,  3 = 6 points,  4 = 10 points,  5 = 15 points
    c.  Champion win = 3 additional points 
    d.  Down Challenge = (-5) points each (DM is exempt from DC rule)
    e.  Team with most wins per round earns 4 additional points
            (If ties, no points awarded)

Alliance Points (Rounds 1 through 5):
    a.  Fights made (DA fights count as a fight made)
            All (each) team of the alliance fights 1 to 3 warriors = 3 points
            All (each) team fights 4+ warriors = 6 points
            All (each) team fights all five warriors = 9
    b.  Alliance with most wins per that round = 5 points
            (If tied, no points awarded.)

Alliance Points (Rounds 6 through 10 as alliance point scoring doubles):
    c.  Fights made (DA fights count as a fight made)
            All (each) team of the alliance fights 1 to 3 warriors = 6 points
            All (each) team fights 4+ warriors = 12 points
            All (each) team fights all five warriors = 18
    d.  Alliance with most wins per that round = 10 points
    e.  (If tied, no points awarded.)
    a.  A Champion may be declared, but one is not mandatory. It is to the 
        team's/alliance's advantage that you do so.
    b.  Only one Champion allowed per manager at any given time.
    c.  Champions that graduate or are killed by another warrior or the Dark Arena, 
        may be replaced.
    d.  Champions must have fought at least one previous fight in the North Fork (DM47 
        arena) to be able to be declared a champion. 
    e.  A Champion can be declared on any round and point factors will begin that same 
        turn. (Must meet above 4 conditions prior to declaring.)
    f.  Challenges to or by Champions against members of the same alliance shall be 
        scored as a loss for each warrior.

     No warrior may be substituted without the proper use of the DA or arena death or 
death in a tournament or graduation. A maximum of five warriors may be on a team at 
any time. (The penalty for such substitution is -10 points.) 

     It is not in the spirit of competition to challenge fellow members of the same 
alliance. Hence, challenges as such will be scored as losses for both warriors.

    a.  A downchallenge occurs when a warrior challenges a warrior with lesser 
        recognition points. 
    b.  No challenge or bloodfeud by The Duelmaster shall be deemed a downchallenge. 
    c.  No challenge of the Duelmaster shall be deemed a downchallenge.
    d.  Bloodfeuds against warriors with lesser recognition are deemed downchallenges.

Tournament Considerations:
    a.  Tournament participation is allowed and ENCOURAGED as a great form of 
        recognition for North Fork.
    b.  It is an opportunity to gain skills and preferred challenging within the Turf 

Special Considerations:
    a.  Each alliance begins the Turf War with zero (0) points.
    b.  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.
    c.  There will be a maximum of four (4) teams/managers allowed per alliance for 
        the Turf War VII. The minimum is two (2).
