                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, friends and fiends, welcome to your friendly neighborhood spyreport.  
I doubt JURINE will ever be the same.  And let's see, KJARRAN'S HAMMER fought XANDER 
HAXAN and gained 14 points and contributed to FEAR FACTORY's 2-1-0.  XANDER HAXAN has 
lost to KJARRAN'S HAMMER, falling 12 points, while helping make BLADE AND BLOOD a 
3-2-0 turn.  The attempts to dethrone the Duelmaster have failed, and SHIVAREE SJDEN 
remains JURINE's top warrior for another turn.  Tell me, is nothing sacred?  I have 
heard from unimpeachable sources that The Warty Toad uses trolls in their stew.  Talk 
about gristle!   
     The crowd's roar, the smell of iron and leather, mixed with sweat, what more 
could a warrior ask of life?  Well, besides that.  Well, sports fans, take notice 
that LAELKORISSA from FAVORITE GUYS was JURINE's most challenged warrior this turn.   
     The Dark Arena is for those who cannot win, not who cannot lose with grace.  
Dignity in life or death is the warrior's creed.  Kudos go out to KJARRAN'S HAMMER 
this turn, for revenging FEAR FACTORY's bloodfeud against BLADE AND BLOOD's warrior 
XANDER HAXAN.  Well done.  A brave warrior does not carry a red shield, he has 
nothing to cover or hide when the fight is over.  Consider well.   
     I like this place, JURINE, the taverns have old wine, and young serving girls.  
Who could ask for more?  It's been nice chatting with you, until we meet again, keep 
your swords sharp and your hammers heavy.  Until you see my quill in JURINE again, 
farewell-- Alarond the Scribe

Sibi El Keer -- You might not think it to look at my record, but there's a lot of
experience in losing, so long as you don't die.  Good try, though. -- Laelkorissa
P.S.  Well, actually, after learning four skills, you might think it after all.

Shivaree Sjden -- Maybe we should rename our team "Teachers United," or something.
In those few seconds, which you spent beating me up, HOW did you manage to learn four
skills? -- Chillili Ches, who really REALLY does not like hospitals

Mikai Abados -- Lay'l kor IS a. -- Laelkorissa

     I am back in the arena and thinking back to those days in 1984 where I was a
novice and clueless manager.
     Now, 22 years later it looks like I am an ancient and once again clueless
manager.
     I am looking to recover some old warriors.  Since none of them are Aimed Blows,
they are no threat to win anything.  I just want to see how they turned out.

The Couatl 2-17
Madam Butterfly 20-701
Gypsy Moth 20-703
King Crab 21-1
Priestess Python 26-1388

Please contact me at DekeYoung@Comcast.net if you know about any of these ancient
warriors, or just want to bs about the old, old, old times.

It is obvious that the Dark Knights wish to be shown the light.  Allow me to step
forward and blind them with truth.  YOU ARE WORTHLESS!!!  The Dark Knights are so
afraid of the light that they hide behind their black armor and empty threats.  It is
too bad they are unwilling to actually FIGHT us!  I guess our natural light is too
bright for you all to face!  Fear us, for we are here! -- Gemini Goldphoenix,
Overlord of the Avengers of Light!

         turns.
     5.  The turn  a declaration and verification will begin the scoring process.

         War 5.
     7.  For the purpose of scoring, I reserve the right to make all final decisions.

Special Scoring:

Champions:
     a.  Champions may be declared, but are not mandatory.  If declared, the Champion
         must be in the Adepts or lower brackets on the turn they are declared
         without having gone above the Adepts bracket at any time...including
         transferred teams.  (I'll be watching for this occurrence!)
Bloodfeuds:
     a.  Bloodfeuds count for all four (4) turns.  However, the same warrior may not
         be used all four turns.  4 turns means 4 separate warriors.  A penalty of
         -10 will be given to the team who violates this.
Special Conditions:
     a.  I reserve the right for all final decisions.
     b.  If I make a mistake, I'll multiply the points by 2.
     c.  If you claim I did, and *YOU* are wrong, I'll subtract points at the rate of
         x10.
     d.  Each alliance begins with zero (0) points.
     e.  Dark Arena may be used on the first turn of every warrior with no penalty
         (this means a warrior with 0 FE).
     f.  TVs won after the contest begins gain a 25 point one time score once the
         tourney reports are posted in the NL.
     g.  TCs won after the contest begins gain a 50 point one time score with the
         same conditions as noted for TVs.
     h.  NO switching alliance once verified by an alliance that a team has declared
         for.
     i.  Only 7 teams are permitted per alliance for the Turf War 5.
PRIZES:
     Turf Wars are a "Winner Takes All" type contest.  All prizes and 100% of the RU
Certs will be given to the Captain of the winning alliance and it is his/her
responsibility to give these to the alliance membership.
     I have requested from RSI the following:
     a.  renaming of the orth Fork (DM 47) arena;
     b.  renaming of Dark Arena Monsters;
     c.  known favourite rhythms for one warrior on each team of the winning
         alliance.  This warrior would be in the Initiates or above brackets on the
         last turn of the Turf War (they must have at least one arena fight to
         receive this award).
               Baphomet, Host of TW5
Special Note:  A downchallenge is considered from a higher bracket to a lower
bracket.  Same bracket, more recognition points?  Not a downchallenge!
