                                      SPY REPORT

     Much has changed in SCOMSS SWAMP since last I was here.  Never fear, Olaf Modeen 
adapts to many situations, as do all successful fighters.  Woof!  FORCE OF WILL were 
a bunch of dogs after THE BEAR'S PAW got through with 'em!  2nd ain't so sweet as 
1st!  Ya gotta be quick on yer feet!  Keep your elbow off the table!  Thrust!  Block 
out the pain!  STRANGE BREW is now ranked 8th with a 3-2-1 turn.  THE BEAR'S PAW 
showed SCOMSS SWAMP what they were made of as they fought with a vengeance to walk 
off with 4-1-0.  Major screwup at ALL SWAMP HAMMERZ.  SWAMP BOGG HAMMER lost 13 
points to WINKIE.  Some new strategies, perhaps?  Maybe SWAMP BOGG HAMMER will 
provide more easy wins...  SCOMSS SWAMP has a Duelmaster who doesn't sit back and get 
lazy.  He Dark Arena Challenged DARK ARENA's SENSATIONAL SNULN (0-0-0), which should 
prove (ahem!) interesting.  The crowds were amazed this turn, as SENSATIONAL SNULN 
killed the Duelmaster, BARBARINO, leaving SECOND BANANAS in mourning.  So now THE RON 
gets to be SCOMSS SWAMP's Duelmaster.  But what comes around goes around.  I suppose 
you want to hear some rumors and dirty gossip about your fellow fighters?  Tough!   
     No matter the time or place, men will always duel.  SCOMSS SWAMP thinks SECOND 
BANANAS and their 148-104-17 is too much!  If at first you don't succeed, give up...  
Management must be dealin', as the boys at THE SERPENTS ain't reelin'!  SECOND 
BANANAS' mad!  How well I know the feeling of being the most challenged warrior, ROIS 
ANIN!  Don't make idle boasts, they may come back to haunt you.  MAKRIYANNIS didn't 
quite know what to make of a challenge he received from SLEEMAN of STRANGE BREW, who 
is 21 points below him.  SLEEMAN perhaps got his just desserts, seeing as he overcame 
MAKRIYANNIS and ended up with 22 recognition points.  I hate going to the effort of 
writing about the kind of fights that LOKI gets in.  He fights people like DAR-LOTTE, 
11 points below.  I thought LOKI showed great skill and promise when he beat 
DAR-LOTTE.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     There have been some calls to lengthen the time limit.  Do you want the fighters 
to walk away, or not?  Who will dare fight JACK & JILL, after he returned from the 
Dark Arena?  (For the record 29-22-1 is 126, and has he points) Sending a warrior to 
the Dark Arena reminds the others they'd better shape up.  Tough beans, A.D..  That's 
what a 8-5-1 gets you.  BARLEY of STRANGE BREW got 17 points for removing another 
young punk.  Tough luck, SPOONERTIKS!  I like to see warriors put young 
whippersnappers in their place.  I guess you could say TEAM ASGARD'BALDER did just 
that.  Right FORCE OF WILL?  Here's some advice:  study your opponent, master many 
skills, fight dirty.   
     Well, I'm pretty much through.  You guys need to get back practicing.  The end 
of another Spyreport!  That's cause for celebration in my book!  I don't want to 
overstay my welcome...-- Olaf Modeen

Barbarino -- Well done Vinny, it appears you are entitled to the throne afterall.  Oh
well, congrats on the invite anyway. -- Jack & Jill

North Fork -- In case you were wondering, Jack & Jill, 14(1)-21(2)-14-5(1)-20(2)-
10(1)-9(2), Expert in Parry, and probably 1 skill short of experts in Decise and
Defence, apparently is adept with the Greatsword, with a Very Low/Low Rhythm while
using the Riposte Tactic and learning decise skills.   Obviously had a little trouble
with the skills, hence the tumbling down the hill. -- Crip, mgr or Royal Flush
P.S.  Oh yeah, Jack & Jill were 0-9 in North Fork, err, SCOMSS Swamp, against Aim
Blows.  Didn't know there were that many aimblows in town.

Agaric -- Are you suffering from a little rating envy yet? -- African Queen

Rhiannon -- You too, congrats on the invite, even though you really didn't seem to be
around here long. -- Ten Lords A Leapin

Cobra -- Sir, I do believe that makes it one apiece. -- The Lion King

SCOMSS Swamp -- Oh, yes.  I almost forgot, Royal Flush declares its allegiance to
SSCOMSS Shire for the coming turf war. -- Crip

Barney Bear -- Wow!  How did I get through all that?  And being of china?  I shall
call that "very nice". -- China Milkmaid

It is now official; SCOMSSS shall include Spoonertics, Royal Flush, Land Of Oz,
Second Bananas, Mystic Orc Feast, Things I Drool In, and Old Habits.  All seven have
been at one time or another in The Fellowship Of The SCOMSS.  Bring on the Turf War!
-- Oz The All Proclaiming

3-0-0!  Second Bananas!  It isn't the Turf War yet is it, Mannequin?  And, BTW, why
no kills? -- Oz The All Hypocritical

Barbarino, Jack & Jill, Rhiannon -- A salute to you all--Great Lord protectors. -- Oz
The All Covetous

All -- Turf War.  Turf War.  Come and get us.......... -- SCOMSSS

Heraclius -- Not sure that was much fun for either of us... -- A.D.

Rois Anin -- An unexpected challenge, and even more unexpected weaponry chosen by
you... Whatever your plan, I liked the result! -- Ivan P

Adder -- What a snake in the grass... Next time I'll try to be more prepared... --
Fourth Nork

High Test -- Unlike my compadre, I wasn't quite ready for you... yet... -- Stingo
Rarr

Barbarino, Jack & Jill, Rhiannon -- A triplett of graduates.... Congrats all! --
Spawn

Oz The All Organised -- Delighted to re-claim my place within the SCOMSS if there's
still space... Though some consideration of where to place all the SS'S may be
required... SMS SOCS ?? SS SCOMS? SOS SCMS... -- Spawn

China Milkmaid -- Congrats for your impressive display at the Mail In... Maybe Oz
will promote you... Cow Girl?? -- Spawn

Ivan Poisy -- Guess I had too much to drink when I requested that shield!!  Oops my
bad.  Care to dance again? -- Rois Anin

Master Darque, Oz -- I am declaring my team of Dok Sik Killas for the up-coming Turf-
War.  Our team champion will be declared at a later time, before the Turf War begins.
-- Dok Sik

Master Darque, Oz -- We will be fighting for, in addition to being the captain for
the Desolate Empire Alliance. The current members that may declare for the Turf War
are Goat = Desolate Ones & Toker = Smoked Out. -- Dok Sik

Gentlemen Of The Fellowship Of The SCOMSSS .....
--You must declare for SCOMSSS in the DM47 personals, the sooner the better--
-- List your Manager name, Team name, SCOMSSS declaration--
-- You may also at this time designate your captain
--Oz must then accept your declaration in the personals, and will do so quickly--
7 RU Certs have been authorized by Oz from Sandy to Master Darque for the Team This
note is the formal statement that
                   The Fellowship Of The SCOMSSS is chartered
                   Oz The All Communicative shall be designated team leader
Slugbait, Crip, Oz, Mannequin, Snuln(Nuln), Soultaker(Father), & Spawn are the
expected partnering in this the Turf War VI.
     The Land Of Oz Publicist.

I, Oz of Land Of Oz, declare for SCOMSSS.  My captain shall be China Milkmaid. -- Oz
The All Excited

Magnificent Moderator -- Please accept my declaration for the forthcoming Turf War...
Spawn, mngr of Spoonertiks declares for SCOMSSS... I would like to designate Oz as my
captain... I hope this is in order! -- Spawn

Phokus -- Hey, wow, that weapon's like, HEAVY... *whew*  By the way, what is a
Hallani anyway? -- Kortelia

Botoru -- I'm impressed.  You took my advice. -- Earvling Klash

Tohrture -- A bit ill-equipped and under-advised, if I might offer the opinion. --
Nyan'ti

Balder -- I know how to train, but this whole fighting thing has yet to work out.
*sigh* -- Gauntlyn

Swamp Burn Hammer -- For Kortalia, my friend... and just because, of course. *smirk*
-- Pariah

Hmm, not a bad round.  Barbarino, congrats on both your status and the invite.  Jack
& Jill, Rhiannon, good luck on the Isle.  Oz the All Inquisitive, the poem was a
sporadic from a few years back, but content reference can be found in T.S. White's
"The Once and Future King."  It refers to Merlin's teaching Arthur what bravery
REALLY is.  All in all, a great book, though not my personal favorite concerning the
Arthurian legend.  Owlin, I need a bit of wisdom now.  If you, Liam, Buddy Lee, and I
are in the TW coming up, who's the captain?  I'm not an option given my current
status, but I need to know who to refer to, so keep me updated as necessary.  Okay,
time to get back to work on the matter at hand... -- Michael L. Eldritch, mgr. Force
of Will
P.S.  NICE turn, Owlin!

All -- Let it be known that a voice has spoken unto me:  "Take forth your Sisters and
administer the faith and true understanding unto all those that whould participate in
the TURF war".  So I again offer the services of my Sisters to the all mighty Oz if
he so desires them.  I would like to declare "Old Habits" in the TURF war under the
holy banner of the SCOMSS.  I would also like to declare Sister MaryJane as the
champion for the Old Habits. -- Father O'Malley

I, Slugbait of Mystic Orc Feast, declare for SCOMSSS.  My captain shall be LUMINOUS
LOX. -- Slugbait

17 July 2008
All -- Many of you know me and many more don't, but I will be scarce for a few
months.  I am relocating, so look for my presence online!  As my will, so mote it
be! -- Abraxis

                            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
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:
        1.  Renaming of the North Fork (DM 47) arena;

            (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
