                                      SPY REPORT

     I can't believe the violence in VEASTIAN!  I still haven't told Mom I'm writing 
Spyreports.  She'd have a cow!  Well, here we go...  Too bad, ANIMAL MAGNETISM, but 
TERMAGANT VOTARY was just too good to be stopped.  MVP award for TAMARA RAHN?  
TERMAGANT VOTARY's proud of her after beating TIRRAJ and getting 21 points.  Talk 
about yer big time losers!  TIRRAJ got smashed by TAMARA RAHN, and lost 1 points!  
What a putz!  BENGAL fights so hard to be Duelmaster, then quits fighting and loses 
the title.  No one said he was a genius...  And I was just getting used to the 
ex-Duelmaster's habit of...(!)  Oh well, welcome ETHON EL KEER.  Aren't TERMAGANT 
VOTARY proud.  (Oh, my.) I hear the top team insists all their warriors get nine 
hours sleep.  They want photogenic fighters for PR photos.   
     AAARRGH!!!  I HATE SPYREPORTING!!!  Sorry.  I just had to say it.  Like, is 
TIRRAJ popular, or what?  He was challenged the most in all of VEASTIAN!  He's got a 
21-14-0, is that good?   
     Challenges, revenges, Bloodfeuds.  All VEASTIAN ever talks about is fighting!  
Me, I'm more laid back.  Hey you guys, don't you think your families would like to 
hear from you?  Write!  (Or have someone write for you.)  
     Remember, blood on a purple robe may stain.  Soak it in cold water, and hand 
wash.  I know how much you like reading this stuff, but I really should stop.  Its 
been really albendranius!  Later, guys-- Debby Tonte

Kuressa D'Gen -- You look good in leather.  Your blood only adds to your overall
look.  Red on black, a good combination. -- Tamara Rahn

Hyena -- You changed your strategy.  Good move. -- Draco El Tannjn

Sjordhal -- You Family guys are such good teachers.  We will fight again. -- Nestor
Bane

Tamara Rahn -- You WERE laughing, you termagant!  You're mean and nasty and I hate
you! -- Kuressa D'Gen
P.S.  Good work, though.

Lion -- Well, damn!  I thought we could be, you know, just a little friendly before
hand, and you leaned on my lightning pigeon with your animal magnetism and it
CRASHED.  That was not the act of a friendly person, buster. -- Konjor
P.S.  I'd beat you over the head for it, but you're better at this stuff than I am,
apparently.

Bengal -- Ah, good!  Somebody ELSE to do the "column" this time.  What a relief, eh?
-- Tirraj

Jaguar -- Everywhere I look, CATS.  What if I'm an ailurophobe?  What if I'm just
allergic to cats?  What then, eh? -- Tirniellis the disgusted

Nestor Bane -- What are you, some kind of rancher?  Well, listen, you!  I'm no
farmer, and don't you forget it. -- Sjordhal
P.S.  I always heard that the devil and her minions had red hair, and you're a case
in proof.

     I am back in the arena and thinking back to those days in 1984 where I was a
novice and clueless manager.
     Now, 22 years later it looks like I am an ancient and once again clueless
manager.
     I am looking to recover some old warriors.  Since none of them are Aimed Blows,
they are no threat to win anything.  I just want to see how they turned out.

The Couatl 2-17
Madam Butterfly 20-701
Gypsy Moth 20-703
King Crab 21-1
Priestess Python 26-1388

Please contact me at DekeYoung@Comcast.net if you know about any of these ancient
warriors, or just want to bs about the old, old, old times.

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!

     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.
     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!
