                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, warriors of ROCANIS!  Once again I've been called out of retirement 
for my abilities and insights into Spyreporting.  What's with MR THUG?  He actually 
beat BAD APPLES' WOODWORM, and walked away with 14 more points from the fight.  Major 
screwup at BAD APPLES.  LIMBDROPPER lost 7 points to LOIS THUG.  Some new strategies, 
perhaps?  Maybe LIMBDROPPER will provide more easy wins...  ROCANIS has a Duelmaster 
who doesn't sit back and get lazy.  He Dark Arena Challenged DARK ARENA's HAKKON TAIN 
(0-0-0), which should prove (ahem!) interesting.  HAKKON TAIN was reminded on the 
sands why PREATORIAN is Duelmaster.  Wouldn't it be nice to have live subjects to 
practice on?  I hear some team is looking into the uses of convicted prisoners.   
     If at first you don't succeed, avoid.  That'll get you in the Spyreports.  The 
most avoided team was KNIGHTS OF ROCANIS.  In my day, no team with a 340-217-18 would 
scare me off!  What's the problem, YIELD?  How well I know the feeling of being the 
most challenged warrior, MALUS S'PROUT!  Don't make idle boasts, they may come back 
to haunt you.  Taunt your opponent GAFFER SMITH!  That was my lucky charm when I was 
unfairly challenged.  (and by 33 points!)  CONTRABAND should have an easy win.  
CONTRABAND defeated GAFFER SMITH.  YIELD calls this fighting?  In my day...   
     A fighter's lot is filled with strife, revenge, and killing.  Some fighters 
don't accept this.  The best do.  Who will dare fight PREATORIAN, after he returned 
from the Dark Arena?  (For the record 20-7-1 is 130, and has he points) Here's some 
advice:  study your opponent, master many skills, fight dirty.   
     Many other cities have retirement homes for aged warriors.  Any plans here?  Are 
you as tired of reading this as I am of writing it?  Actually, I guess I'm writing it 
before you read it.  Oh, well.  I don't want to overstay my welcome...-- Olaf Modeen

Hey where did everyone go? -- A very lonely Tritus

Contraband -- Got anything good there, sonny? -- Gaffer Smith
P.S.  Hey, it's been that kind of fortnight.  A little relief of one kind or another
would be welcome.

In Hiding -- Not from me.  I didn't have any trouble at all finding you.  Ha. --
Hawthorn the ungracious winner

Tritus -- I hope you get powder-post beetles in your wooden face. -- Woodworm

Loveable Larry -- By your mother, maybe. -- Limbdropper
P.S.  I wish the arena staff would either get tired of telling us, over and over
again, that we're fighting locals--or else let us fight an out-of-towner.

Mr Thug -- I think you're too polite--the "Mr" and all. -- Malus S'prout
P.S.  Not that it doesn't make a pleasant change.

Our congratulations to Praetorian. -- the Bad Apples

Kill Me -- (snicker) -- Mainakha-Te Master

Centurion -- It is good that you're leaving.  You do not belong here. -- Priest of
Mytori

Praetorian -- No point in me even trying to win, it isn't like they'd let me take the
title. -- Gardrik Hookhand, Master of Kung-Fu, slightly sore loser

Sage -- That was easier than I expected. -- Dhalgoi, a Rirorni Spy

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

                   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

            warrior(s) wins such status.
        3.  Tournament Champions won during the course of the contest will gain a one

            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.
