                                      SPY REPORT

     Ready for some action-packed adventure, some thrills, chills and spills?  Well 
fergit it, cause this is the Spyreport for STORMCROWE.  I couldn't believe it.  Did 
ASAIRE really go up by 12?  If only those guys didn't have so may missing teeth...  
Gross!  I don't wanna hurt anybody's feelings or anything, but PACIS EX NEX really 
goofed with their 2-2-0.  What was the name of that team who got 4-1-0 this turn for 
a total 32-29-0 you ask?  (Sure)  JGW PERISHABLE 1's their name, and fighting's their 
game!  MVP award for SEBASTIAN HAMMER?  MUTANT HAMMERZ's proud of him after beating 
SMACKY and getting 22 points.  Talk about yer big time losers!  SMACKY got smashed by 
SEBASTIAN HAMMER, and lost 16 points!  Was that a tear I saw in JEFFERSON DAVIS' eye, 
as it took over Duelmastership?  And wasn't TUNDRA fit to be tied!  I hear the top 
team insists all their warriors get nine hours sleep.  They want photogenic fighters 
for PR photos.   
     So just why would someone becomes a warrior anyway?  It can't be for these 
really neat Spyreports can it?  PHANTOM REGIMENT was STORMCROWE's most avoided team.  
Is there some award for that?  Hhmph!  What kind of warriors are OLD MAN RIVER?  
PHANTOM REGIMENT, an easy team to beat if I ever saw one, can't get them to accept an 
invitation!  Can OLD MAN RIVER's TIGRIS be more popular than me?  She was challenged 
the most, but is that really the same?  Some fights are really unfair.  How do you 
think PT CRUISER feels about being challenged by BOLI, 31 points above him?  BOLI 
beat PT CRUISER.  No surprise about that.  Really I'm not surprised BOLI would do 
such a scummy thing, either.  People were asking me did 121 REALLY challenge LYNX?  
(all right, maybe they didn't, but it sounded good!) It wasn't a spectacular fight, 
or anything, but LYNX wants me to write about it since she bested 121.  Satisfied?  
MERCY FOR NONE must not be a good enough fighter to get in fair fights.  He 
challenged HALF.  15 is a big difference.  (Well, that's what they tell me.) I 
thought MERCY FOR NONE showed great skill and promise when he beat HALF.  All right, 
so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     What does a fighter fight for?  I mean, the crowds don't give a hoot if someone 
gets killed.  Not after four more fights.  BOLING of OF WOLF & MAN 4 wasn't planning 
on killing THE AMAZON, I bet.  Now he has to worry about being Bloodfeuded, and 
getting put on lists...  Hey you guys, don't you think your families would like to 
hear from you?  Write!  (Or have someone write for you.)  
     I really didn't, you know, study when I was a kid.  Who would've guessed I'd be 
a famous Spyreporter?  I gotta leave.  STORMCROWE is like such a dump, and you guys 
smell too much!  Remember you guys, ease up sometimes!  Chill out!  Later, Debby 
Tonte

All -- Two turns left and a mighty tight race!  Let's see what happens when the dust
settles. -- Nomad, High Plains Duelers

Roselyn -- Down Challenges!  Ok, I guess I can't complain.  Such is life in a
contest.  Perhaps Payne and I can commiserate together. -- Grateful Dead

Payne -- Perhaps I will stop at two.  Blame your manager for the challenges, Darque's
the one that insists on staying competitive in this contest. -- Prowler

Magmus Martum -- That's two.  Should I go for a third?  Hhhmmm...you really shouldn't
kill those already dead. -- Ichabod Crane

121 -- That was a nice little match-up.  I guess now I have to see what the champions
division is made of. -- Jacob Marley

Kat -- Good matchs, you have the edge on me. -- Liam the Goth

Master Darque -- What a way to run a contest! -- Liam

Owlin -- It happens buddy, we'll get them next year.  Get ready for TW6.  We're
friends to the end. -- Liam

All -- I've had it up to my head, thanks for letting a no one play in your sandbox.

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.

                            Starting Nov 2008 (10 turns)

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 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

         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.

        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.

Special Considerations:
