                                      SPY REPORT

     Busy, busy, busy, lots of things happening in VEASTIAN this turn, and let's 
start with a look at some of the teams.  And let's see, FELSTAVA fought VAISTINIE and 
gained 22 points and contributed to THE BRETHREN's 3-2-1.  VAISTINIE has lost to 
FELSTAVA, falling 16 points, while helping make THE FAMILY a 2-3-0 turn.  Defending 
hers title for another turn, ELDARRAN kept THE FAMILY's warrior, LIRVENZ, from 
claiming the throne.  By the way, was that our Duelmaster that I saw last night, 
cramped under the table at The Dripping Blade?   
     I tell you, a green quarterstaff lasts longer than a seasoned sapling.  A basher 
friend of mine assures me this is true.   
     A coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave man only once.  Wise men know this to 
be true.  Hearty mugs of ale were raised in VEASTIAN today as LIRVENZ was bid 
farewell to a 11-7-1 warrior, with ELDARRAN of THE BRETHREN standing silent and 
pensive.  Seriously now, is it really honorable for ELDARRAN from THE BRETHREN to 
kill LIRVENZ and give THE FAMILY the chance to bloodfeud?  Mmmm, could be.  A brave 
warrior does not carry a red shield, he has nothing to cover or hide when the fight 
is over.  Consider well.   
     I like this place, VEASTIAN, the taverns have old wine, and young serving girls. 
Who could ask for more?  Well, I'm burning daylight here in VEASTIAN and I've a long 
road ahead of me.  Happy Trails.  Until the sun next rises and my pen sets to paper-- 
Alarond the Scribe

Lirvenz -- I will certainly give it a try.  Godric doesn't seem to know how to
properly train an aimed blow, so any input is appreciated. -- Marius

Kenseljo -- I am very familiar with tall red-haired, handsome, charismatic fellas.
That's how I know their weaknesses. -- Eldarran

Vaistinie -- I've been trying different tactics from the ones that have gotten me
this far.  I totally need to cut that out. -- Felstava

Eldarran -- I will not boast of my "personal attributes" as my teammate did last
time.  I am quite ordinary that way.  I will just say that it was, as these things go
(I'm not that violent by nature), a good fight.  You handled it--and me--well.  If
you should want to handle me in a more private and congenial situation, we could
perhaps discuss this over dinner? -- Lirvenz

Festava -- Darned if I know why that worked out the way it did.  Luck?  But you
should have jumped me. -- Vaistinie

Marius -- Okay, let's look at this.  Armor, reasonable.  Weapons... well, we have a
managerial bias against carrying an off-hand weapon, and come to that, a general
distrust for your chosen main weapon, but that's just bias.  You weren't burning out
too fast.  But... not a single parry?  And only one dodge that I can see.  Maybe you
need to contemplate a defensive tactic?  We really don't know much about them, I
don't think Jorja orders a tactic more than once in a blue moon (that team runs in
Zukal anyway, so who cares?).  But you might want to consider it. -- Kenseljo

Jeremiah Broadblade -- Your name is so long, it obviously crushed you to the ground
under the weight of the letters. -- Nekkar Agin

Jonas Switchblade -- Bah.  Cheap tricks, and a massive experience edge.  Later,
things may be very different. -- Babar

Eldarran -- Hmm, I'm not sure what the comment meant, either.  Ah!  Senjiro being so
damned graceful about losing.  Bah. -- Lirvenz

                                 *TURF WAR VII RULES*
                            Starting Nov 2010 (12 turns)
           Bring acclaim and glory to the North Fork (DM47) arena.

Anyone may participate; known alliances, new alliances, or temporary alliances
created solely to compete in the Turf War!  To participate, each alliance must:
        1.  Announce the Captain of the alliance in the North Fork (DM 47)
newsletter.
        2.  Indicate in the newsletter which Captain/alliance you will join.
        3.  Announcements made on the D2 Forums or elsewhere will not be accepted.

Captains are responsible for:
        1.  Verifying/authorizing, in the North Fork newsletter those who wish to
participate under the banner of their alliance. (Lack of participant indication of
joining and/or lack of lack of Captain confirmation will delay a team's participation
in the Turf War.)
        2.  Distribution of prizes should their alliance win the Turf War.
        3.  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:
        1.  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.)
        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 an RSI Gift Certificate is
received, and participant indication and captain confirmation are posted in the North
Fork newsletter. 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 in the newsletter
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
(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).
               d.  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.
               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. (Note:
the intent is to have a very thorough set of rules so that few decisions, if any, are
required from the moderators.)

Scoring will be as follows for Fights:
                                   Win   Loss   Kill      Die
Up Challenge                        +2     -2     +5       -5
Down Challenge                       0     -2      0       -5
Match Up                            +1     -1     +1       -5
Bloodfeud Challenge (Up or Down)    +2     -5     +5      -10
Champion **                         x2     x2     x2       x2
Dark Arena*                        +10     -5     xx       xx
Tournament Death***                                        -5
Halfway (6 round total) best alliance win/loss percentage ****
Final (12 round total) alliance w/l% percentage ****
    *After 2nd win in DA, warrior scores no additional points for wins,
    ** A Champion's double score applies to his score only -- not to the opponent.
    *** No warrior may be substituted without the proper use of the DA or arena death
or death in a tournament. There must be a maximum of five only on a team at any point
and time. (The penalty for such substitution is -10 points.) Points awarded for
tournament participation are 5 for any entrant, 15 for a TV and 25 for a TC. Death in
a tournament negates any tournament points gained and results in a-5 score.
    ***** Halfway points scored are 25, 20, 15, 10, 5, 5, 5 (etc) for 1st, 2nd, 3rd
(etc). (to qualify for any of these points the alliance must have fought 75% of its
possible fights.) Final 12 Round points scored are 40, 30, 20, 15, 10, 5, 5, 5 (etc)
for the 1st, 2nd, 3rd (etc). (to qualify for any of these points the alliance must
have fought 75% of its possible fights.)

Special Scoring Considerations for the Turf War are as follows:
Spy Report mention (team name only)              +2 
     1. No matter how many mentions or stylemasters, an individual team can score
only +2 in each category per round
Style Master                                     +2
      1. No matter how many mentions or stylemasters, an individual team can score
only +2 in each category per round
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 have fought at least one previous fight in the North Fork
(DM47 arena) to be able to be declared a champion. 

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 15 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 25 points.  This bonus will apply EACH time a warrior(s) win
such status.
        4.  Points awarded for tournament participation are 5 for any entrant, (15
total for a TV and 25 total for a TC.) However, death in a tournament will result in
a -5 score for that tournament. (If a warrior TV's and is subsequently killed in a
tournament the points scored are -5 for that tournament.)
        5.  Points for TVs and TCs and tournament deaths 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 five (5) teams allowed per alliance for the
Turf War VII.
        4.  The Dark Arena may be used on the first turn only, of every warrior,
without penalty.

Prizes:
The Turf War is normally a "winner take all" contest.  However, for TWVII, a prize
will be awarded each of the twelve turns to the individual team/manager that fights
five fights and has the best w/l record that turn. (Tiebreakers are in order - kills,
recognition points earned.) All prizes and 100% of the Gift Certificates will be
awarded to the Captain of the winning alliance at the end of the competition.  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.

     All entry fees (rollup certs) are awarded to the winning alliance, except for
the twelve reserved for the individual winning manager each week.)
     The following prizes have been secured from RSI:
        1.  Renaming of the North Fork (DM 47) arena;
        2.  Renaming of all Dark Arena Monsters (two for each manager in the winning
alliance);
        3.  Known Favorites for one warrior on each team of the winning alliance
(warrior must be ranked Initiate or above, must be alive, and must have at least one
DM47 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)
        5.  +1 Skill bonus potion (one) for each and every individual manager who
fights in all 12 rounds AND 54 fights of the Turf War.  Bonus potion must be applied
to a living warrior from (DM 47)
     These RSI awards will be listed by the Moderator for claiming from RSI (Lee)
within 4 turns of the end of TW VI. The certs will be mailed to the winning alliance
by the Moderators within two weeks of the end of the TW.
