                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of COLLUSION COVE!  Know me for who I am, Zontani 
Sharp Eyes, Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  There were bitter words at 
LUROCIANS T308's guildhouse after a 0-0-0 showing this week which dropped the stable 
into 16th.  Dark Arena anyone?  Warriors--remember that glory waits always around the 
corner!  Witness how this week FUNKY FOLK went 1-2-0 to move up 9 in the rankings.  
My praise to MY BEST BUDS 2 for their 3-0-0 week this time out.  Indeed, it was a 
skillfully fought round deserving of notice!  B.C. GOLD caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as she skillfully bested ACIDULOUS and was awarded 30 points 
in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, B.C. GOLD put down 
ACIDULOUS, causing him to lose 23 points of recognition in the process.  Due to its 
absence and inability to defend the throne, BOY GEORGE has lost the title of 
Duelmaster.  This time victory fell to the grasp of the usurper.  All hail B.C. GOLD, 
Duelmaster of COLLUSION COVE!  Heed this!  A seer has warned that if exactly 6 die in 
duels this week, the whole city shall perish!  Just remember...5 or 7!   
     I have been in deep conclave with my spies who watched all that has recently 
transpired.  Indeed there is much I would report.  My inside sources tell me that the 
team to beat in COLLUSION COVE these days is ELOQUENT KNIGHTS.  At least, most blades 
in town are looking to avoid them.  Methinks more than a few here could name the 
guild it was that spent the better part of last week avoiding ELOQUENT KNIGHTS.  
Indeed it was NIHILISTIC ENDEAVOR.  Loose talk at the arena has reached my ears and 
it but confirms the knowledge that many fighters are after ZIG-ZAG MAN.  Watch your 
back!   
     Vendettas.  Bloodied blades and broken spears.  Indeed the city has seen more 
than its fair share of red in recent times.  Strange what qualities come forth in the 
face of certain doom.  BEAST XVII has the town astir with the news of its Dark Arena 
victory!  Dark alleys may hide both secrets and assassins.  In the arena there is 
only the brightness of steel.  Keep vigil always!   
     A thought before I go.  Each warrior practices one style, but must not the wise 
manager learn the secrets of them all?  Sadly warriors, now longer can I keep thy 
company nor savor the ale of thy fine city.  Depart I must and soon!  Till next we 
meet remember:  a fool flies into a rage quickly and often.  The wise are angered by 
the same thing only once.  Zontani Sharp Eyes

All -- I received a report from The Creepster, which loosely translated, reads:  "I
have been caught with my pants down!  For the wrong reason!  My two best warriors,
Dopey and Sentinel were killed.  Dopey by White Wolf of Death Studs VII, And Sentinel
by Best Buds 2.  Dirty rotten FONZERS!  Of course Sentinel doesn't matter as he had a
little FONZ name, but I kinda liked Dopey.  And me with my pants down with nobody
high enough or good enough to bloodfeud.  Life can SUCK!" -- The Crazy Creeps Scribe

Congrats to My Boy George for the DM Title and to My Boy George and 911 for their
well-deserved Lord Protectorships.  Salute. -- The Crazy Creeps Scribe

Nysterious Ways -- At least I won!  Hah!  I heard The Creepster saying "Why couldn't
it have been me?"  I wonder what he meant? -- Miss Piggy

Dopey -- 8-11-10-15-9-10-21 ambi and mode Aimer.  RIP. -- All Us Crazy Creeps that
are still left

Sentinel -- 19(+2)-21(+1)-9-5(+2)-18(+2)-10(+1)-11(1) Total Parry.  RIP. -- The
remaining Crazy Creeps

FONZ = Forlorn Old Nincompoopy Zeroes -- An Anonymous Crazy Creep

Note:  It is perfectly OK for managers to write personals even without TOGS. -- The

                            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;
        2.  Renaming of Dark Arena Monsters (one 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 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 manager who fights in all 10 rounds
            AND 45 fights of the Turf War.  Bonus potion must be applied to a living
            warrior from (DM 47)
These awards will be listed by the Moderator for claiming from RSI (Lee) within 4
turns of the end of TW VI.

Moderators:
The Moderators for this event will be Oz and Master Darque.  They will arbitrate all
dealings during the course of the contest.  Their decisions will be final.  All
questions, comments, and scoring disputes may be directed to Land of Oz or Darque
Forces via diplo in DM 47.  Managers with internet access may send a private message
