                                      SPY REPORT

     It's me, The Unknown Spymaster here with my bag to give you the news on last 
week's fights.  Hey everybody, watch out for EINHERJAR, who flew up 13 points in the 
rankings after mashing MERGE like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  Our last 
turn's Duelmaster has lost, folks, lost to PRIEST OF MYTORI, and CENTURION has made 
the way for a new Duelmaster!  With CENTURION clearing the throne, KNIGHTS OF ROCANIS 
of PREATORIAN takes a proud seat as ROCANIS' new Duelmaster, by virtue of recognition 
points.  Advice to bashers--never force anything, just get a bigger halberd!   
     Let's dig a little deeper into what's happening in the ROCANIS arena.  Well dang 
howdy, but if challenges were votes, HAWTHORN would be president.  Although it may be 
a contest he doesn't want to win.  Getting lots of flowers from sympathetic fans was 
GAFFER SMITH, who was successfully challenged by CONTRABAND who had a mere 27 points 
more than GAFFER SMITH.  Definition of petty:  CONTRABAND bested GAFFER SMITH, a 
mismatch of 27 points.  IN HIDING of YIELD had better have a good reason for 
challenging down 9 points in a challenge which he lost.  I thought IN HIDING showed 
great skill and promise when he lost to HAWTHORN.  All right, so I slept through it!  
Big deal!   
     Death is kind of like a new puppy:  he's always around wanting to play.  (Ha 
Zontani, how's that for a wise saying?).  I have no doubt that ROCANIS will be 
celebrating long and loud their warrior RIRORNI SPY's slaying of SAGE on the sands.  
In the 'Oops, What Have I Done?' category, WOODWORM was mashed by TRITUS, who let 
WOODWORM know that killing members of KNIGHTS OF ROCANIS is a no-no.  Remember:  
alliances are great, but try and take your ally in the arena with you and see what 
happens.   
     Well, there's the manager of the ROCANIS giving me the 'cut' sign (or is that 
'They're going to strangle you in the alley?).  Well, there goes another Spy Report.  
Good luck in next week's fights.  See ya next time I'm on this circuit!-- The Unknown 
Spymaster

A hearty greeting to Yield, who has saved us from the dreaded Two-Team Arena
Syndrome.  You know, the one where you fight the same people every two weeks for a
year or more.  Hi. -- Jorja and the Bad Apples

Praetorian -- Good fight.  Graduate already. -- Gaffer Smith
P.S.  So I'm not gracious, sue me.  Or better yet, send me a stranger to fight.

In Hiding -- Oh, great, my teammates want new people to fight, and who gets 'em?  Me.
Give me a standby any day, especially over someone who's going to attack me by
ambush.  There should be a rule against ambushes, dammit. -- Hawthorn, notoriously
poor loser

Tritus -- Ah, the familiar faces.  Hawthorn doesn't know how good he's got it, but
then, he wouldn't.  He's a bad apple through and through. -- Malus S'prout

Sawtooth -- Tricky little devil, aren't you?  I dropped the first limb on you, and
your just rrrripped it into splinters.  That kind of thing makes a tree think twice,
but in the arena, well, there isn't any time for thinking, so I just hit you with a
bigger limb.  And it worked, so I'm not complaining.  Stick around and we can make a
real mess together. -- Limbdropper

Sir Mac -- (severely)  I know people get upset if they bite into something and find a
worm, but they don't DIE of it.  Stop lying there pretending!  Get up and take your
bow for a fall well done. -- Woodworm, deep in denial

Our congratulations to Centurion. -- Jorja and the Bad Apples

Merge -- I don't want to. -- Halrhuzoi, Rirorni Archer

                            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

        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
