                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly VEASTIAN games.  HAWK NELSON caught the eye of many in 
the gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested J'KOROU and was awarded 19 points 
in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, KRYSTAL MEYERS put down 
SOLDIER 1, causing him to lose 11 points of recognition in the process.  The city has 
turned out in honor of JEREMY CAMP, for with his arena victory he may now lay claim 
to the highest position in the city!  Would you believe that over half of the old 
women in VEASTIAN seem to feel that they could fight better than you gladiators?   
     But come now, let us look deeper into the maze of contention and crossed blades 
that is city VEASTIAN.  My inside sources tell me that the team to beat in VEASTIAN 
these days is THE FAMILY.  At least, most blades in town are looking to avoid them.  
Methinks more than a few here could name the guild it was that spent the better part 
of last week avoiding THE FAMILY.  Indeed it was POSITIVE ALTERNATIVE.  Loose talk at 
the arena has reached my ears and it but confirms the knowledge that many fighters 
are after RALPH NEPPEL.  Watch your back!  A match that raised a few eyebrows at the 
games this week, it seems that DAVID CROWDER posted a challenge against the more 
highly recognized RALPH NEPPEL.  The results, you ask?  Well, the firebrand DAVID 
CROWDER was beat by RALPH NEPPEL.  Remember warriors, this is the discipline of 
steel.   
     Vendettas.  Bloodied blades and broken spears.  Indeed the city has seen more 
than its fair share of red in recent times.  Strange what qualities come forth in the 
face of certain doom.  SIZE 17 has the town astir with the news of his Dark Arena 
victory!  Walk proud, warriors of LUROCIAN ROYALTY!  By striking down MERCY ME you 
have avenged the honor of your dead.  Your virtue is known to all in VEASTIAN.  Dark 
alleys may hide both secrets and assassins.  In the arena there is only the 
brightness of steel.  Keep vigil always!   
     A thought before I go.  Each warrior practices one style, but must not the wise 
manager learn the secrets of them all?  More than a sharp eye must I keep, indeed a 
stout pair of legs must I keep as well!  The endless paths of Alastari await me!  
Till we meet again, remember:  a turtle walks slow, hides head in a shell, and harms 
no one; a lion runs to slay its prey.-- Zontani Sharp Eyes

Road Warriors -- Bwa! Ha! Ha!  I escaped three turns of your vengeance.  Then again,
I'm dead now.  So I guess it's not much of a victory.... -- Psychoman

All -- Apparently I'm a team of one at the moment.... -- Hambergerizer

Jorja -- Nah.  Just keep on fighting.  We're just having a little family contest.
Nothing that would make us a want to clear the arena out of the regular teams! -- the
Brotherhood of the Blade Contest Committee

Leo Powers -- Oh, grabby, are you?  Well, take the title, then.  See if I care. --
Selinsia

Killed by the Khalhums Dwarf?  By that hairy little runt?  That's an insult, that is.
I resent it deeply. -- Ghost of Worth Lissando

Jeremy Camp -- Every young gladiator should have a loss to keep him humble.  I was
just doing my civic duty. -- J'Korou

Hawk Nelson -- Ah, you're a mean one.  I like that in an opponent, up to a point. --
Sjordhal
P.S.  And I expect it in a dwarf.

Someone's been feeding the Khalhums Dwarf red meat.  Whoever it is, stop right now!

                   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
                   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 from the Turf War (so be sure to take any
                   multiple teams OFF of Team Maintenance).
               d.  Scoring will NOT be retroactive for teams that do not properly
                   declare 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 scoring
                   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.

Scoring will be as follows for Fights:
                Win   Loss   Kill      Die
Challenge        +2     -2     +5       -5
Match Up         +1     -1     +1       -5
Bloodfeud        +2     -5     +5      -10
Champion         x2     x2     x2       x2
Dark Arena*     +10     -5     xx       xx
*After 2nd win, warrior scores no points for wins

Special Scoring Considerations for the Turf War are as follows:
Spy Report mention (team name only)              +2
Style Master                                     +2
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 be in the Adepts bracket or lower on the turn they are
         declared, and may NOT have gone above Adepts level at any time; this
         includes teams transferred into North Fork for the Turf War.

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 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 points.  This bonus will apply EACH time a

        4.  Points for TVs and TCs 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 seven (7) teams allowed per alliance for the
            Turf War.
        4.  The Dark Arena may be used on the first turn only, of every warrior,
            without penalty.

Prizes:
The Turf War is a "winner take all" contest.  All prizes and 100% of the Gift
Certificates will be awarded to the Captain of the winning alliance.  It is the
responsibility of the Captain to distribute Gift Certificates.  Moderators will

            (warrior must be ranked Initiate or above, must be alive, and must have
            at least one arena fight to receive this award).
        4.  +1 Skill bonus potion for each manager on the winning alliance.  Bonus
            potion must be applied to a living warrior from (DM 47)
