                                      SPY REPORT

     The sages err'd not in their foretelling of a god descending upon VEASTIAN, for 
I, Novgorodny Vir, have returned!  POSITIVE ALTERNATIVE?  Who?  LUROCIAN ROYALTY is 
the top team these days, buddies!  ROAD WARRIORS after a sorry 0-0-0 might want to 
consider abandoning the sands and taking up singing the 'Can't fight no more' blues!  
What's a move up by 5 you ask?  (alright, maybe you didn't ask)  Cause for 
celebration, according to THE FAMILY.  Practice pays for PRINCE CONNOR, who pummelled 
RALPH NEPPEL, to pocket 20 points.  A certain someone should cut down on the drinking 
and practice more, after losing 16 points to PRINCE CONNOR.  (Discrete enough, RALPH 
NEPPEL?) In VEASTIAN, nothing is permanent (except Death), and we find ourselves a 
new Duelmaster, NORILTENNE.  So who's the team that's been walking into taverns last 
week and ordering milk?  Sounds like a PR stunt to me.   
     So much to report, so little time!  Like the noble eagle soaring amongst the 
mountaintops, so stand the warriors of POSITIVE ALTERNATIVE, alone and unchallenged.  
Like a pup with its tail between its legs, MEDAL OF HONOR F1 scurried away from 
POSITIVE ALTERNATIVE.  Oh, the shame!  Everyone is famous for fifteen minutes, and 
SJORDHAL is it right now.  Most challenged warrior.  Isn't THE FAMILY proud!  Take 
heed VEASTIAN, of the unprincipled action of HAWK NELSON.  By challenging J'KOROU, 24 
points below him, HAWK NELSON besmirches the noble art of dueling.  HAWK NELSON will 
have to start challenging legless old maids next, as he was beat by J'KOROU.  Good 
show, J'KOROU!  HAMBERGERIZER found himself challenged by a warrior 23 below:  QUEEN 
RANDI.  QUEEN RANDI of LUROCIAN ROYALTY kept hers wits as she lost to HAMBERGERIZER.  
     Is there life after death?  Pragmatics (and warriors) know there is death after 
life!  Oh hard!  that to strike a flame, the match itself must needs be wasting!   
     Do not think spyreporting in VEASTIAN is the highlight of my life.  Keep those 
sands bloody and the buzzards fat!  VEASTIAN, I leave you now.  The Duelmaster has 
agreed to foot my bill at The Swinging Aardvark.  'Til next time-- Novgorodny Vir

Hail Alastarians!
     Allow me to introduce myself.  I am Vanek, manager of the Warmasters in the No-
Tourney arena of Shadowspire.  I come to you with a public service announcement.
Some of you may already be aware of Shadowspire and some of you may not realize what
exactly you're missing.  This isn't your average arena.  This is Shadowspire, a large
and very active arena where role-playing is encouraged; many managers are active both
the personal ads and the D2 forums online, and excitement reigns with many grudge
matches from turn to turn.
     If you haven't checked arena 81 out, I urge you to do so.  After returning to
the game almost 2 years ago, after a 15+ year hiatus, I was looking to try and
recapture the magic of the game I remembered from my youth.  After finding my first
two arenas lacking, I almost quit the game again.  That was until I found the newly
opening Shadowspire.  It was here that I found the magic and excitement that I
remembered.  I truly love this arena and am sure you will too if given a chance.
Rookie or experienced veteran, it matters not.  Both have come together here to
successfully make an arena with plenty of competition to challenge the vets, yet with
the no tourney format, friendly enough for the novices to get their feet wet and
learn (or relearn) the game.  When I say that even novices can find success here, I
speak from personal experience.  I still consider myself a "newbie" to the game but
have found plenty of success with my first two Duelmaster titles and two ADM
graduates to date.
     I encourage you all to check out the D2 forums at www.reality.com/duel2/ and
look over both the Shadowspire newsletter and DM-81 forum section at the bottom of
the page.  The forum banter and personal ads help to clearly show that the "old
school" feel for the game is still alive and well here in Shadowspire.
     Also, if you're a former Shadowspire manager who is currently away, I encourage
you to return and help continue to make this one of the most entertaining arenas in
the game today!
     I hope to see many new faces in the near future and am excited to see the return
of some of the old faces whom have been away!
     Sincerely,
          Vanek

After 17 long years they are finally cutting the Cowboy loose.  Red & stinging, my
hand is now sufficiently slapped.  The state of Texas' boot print is stamped across
my ***... Uncle Damnit!  I am only 34 (think about it...) so plenty of time to
reinvent myself...prospects are great.  After wading through the culture shock I hope
to be amongst you soon, dishing out paper "w"itch slaps and taking my share of them
from you.  See you @ the Winter face '09?  Only time will tell.  Good luck. --
CFH/Rat Salad, 5 Below Zero and an assortment of other underachieving thugs.
P.S.  Contact info coming soon for those who want it; email and all that other fun
sh...stuff.  *grin*  Sorry Ed.

        1.  Announce the alliance and the Captain of the alliance in the North Fork
            (DM 47) newsletter.
        2.  Announcements made on the D2 Forums will not be accepted.

Captains are responsible for:
        1.  Verifying those who wish to participate under the banner of their
            alliance;
        2.  Distribution of prizes should their alliance win the Turf War.
        3.  Submit one (1) RSI Roll-Up Certificate to participate

Participating managers who are not Captains must:
        1.  Submit one (1) RSI Roll-Up Certificate to participate
        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 a Gift Certificate is received.
                   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
            warrior(s) win such status.
        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
submit a list of each manager on the winning alliance to RSI at the completion of the
contest for the non-Certificate prizes.

The following prizes have been secured from RSI:

            (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)
