                                      SPY REPORT

     You elder fighters surely remember me.  The younger ones may call me Olaf 
Modeen.  I return to VALAMANTIS once again!  Woof!  RIO VISTANS were a bunch of dogs 
after RANDOM SITH got through with 'em!  3rd ain't so sweet as 1st!  Some people say 
I ramble too much, I don't say anything relevant.  I repeat myself.  I ramble.  Well 
SINFUL SISTER moved up 2, to 6th.  What's with T.R.?  He actually beat MIDDLE WAY 
10's CHIA EDEL, and walked away with 21 more points from the fight.  Laughs were big 
at RIO VISTANS while they watched T.R. clobber CHIA EDEL.  She lost 16 points and got 
bruised from objects thrown from the stands.  VALAMANTIS has a Duelmaster who doesn't 
sit back and get lazy.  He challenged MASTERS OF RAGE's XAVIER (14-9-2), which should 
prove (ahem!) interesting.  I can barely restrain my enthusiam for MASTERS OF RAGE's 
outstanding member, Duelmaster XAVIER.  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.  How 
well I know the feeling of being in the most avoided team!  Don't fall out of 
practive, MASTERS OF RAGE!  Management must be dealin', as the boys at RIO VISTANS 
ain't reelin'!  MASTERS OF RAGE's mad!  What do people see in XAVIER?  His 14-9-2?  
MASTERS OF RAGE ain't talkin', but he's got 110 points.   
     There have been some calls to lengthen the time limit.  Do you want the fighters 
to walk away, or not?  Death is no stranger to a warrior.  SINFUL SISTER's MENAGE A 
TROIS led a good life before leaving VALAMANTIS.  Many would be proud to leave behind 
a 6-4-0.  Here's some advice:  study your opponent, master many skills, fight dirty.  
     Who knows what the future holds for a warrior.  More fights, there's no doubt.  
The end of another Spyreport!  That's cause for celebration in my book!  Time for my 
medication, so I'll leave now.  Practice, practice, practice!-- Olaf Modeen

Pauly -- Yeah, I really don't see all the fuss over AB's and LU's.  I say give a man
the heaviest stick he can grasp with two hands, and you have a happy man.  Next up:
my campaign to convince everyone that pikers are the second best style in the game.
-- Nuln
P.S.  My goal is to see Valamantis at %60 BA's before I leave.

Pauly -- Look at you, ruling Valamantis with the iron fist.  While you're up there,
do you take bribes? -- Nuln

Valamond Jr., A.T. Jr. -- We juniors must stick together...or die divided, say I.
Hereforth and henceforth (and forthwith) I propose the foundation of the Valmantinian
(with possible chapters in other arenas) Junior Alliance, and death and despair to
all who would oppose us!!! -- Son of Butch

Nick -- Too true, too true.  Why look, here's one now! (and I suspect another after
this) -- Nuln, gaining perception by the second

Bali Darras -- Any relation to Halle Barry?  If so... -- Great Weapon Choice
P.S.  859-6274

Indimar -- Don't make me reclaim that "Zestivo" moniker of yours... -- Nuln

Soultaker -- I see you have brought your murderous ways to Valamantis.  We shall have
to teach you as lesson, I see. -- All About Bashers

Random Sith, Legion of Legend -- I hope the RUGS were kind...we need more warriors
here! -- said by Nuln, who will be running a full team after the mailer

Prostitute -- So uh, that's not a maul in my pocket, btw. -- Zero Maul Envy
P.S.  859-6274 (we all share the same phone at the guild, cheap *&^ Null)

T.R. -- Well, that falls under the heading of "was my face red!"  You just walked all
over me.  Er, figuratively speaking, since I didn't actually fall down. -- Dana Friss
P.S.  I try to avoid falling down.  Getting the sand out of my hair is such a
problem.

Great Weapon Choice -- ANY weapon is nasty.  Even fists, if you're dealing with a
master of kung-fu.  Specifically, the one YOU were using was nasty, and I really
hurt. -- Bali Darras
P.S.  Secret admirer?  Bah.

Chuck -- Well, that was a bummer!  Tell me, just as a matter of curiosity, was that
the legendary hatred of elves for half elves? -- Ghost of Finilla Hars

Buzz -- Bzzzpt! -- Chia Edel
P.S.  I just couldn't resist.

Martavius -- Well, you have to admit that I'm getting pretty good at losing, at
least.  There's an art to it, you know. -- Erfin Goram
P.S.  But you need to work on your teaching ability.  You were slacking.

25 September 2006
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!

*Turf War IV Rules*

     Everyone may participate; known alliances, new alliances, or temporary alliances
created to compete in the Turf War! However, to participate, each alliance must:
     A.  Announce the alliance and the Captain of the alliance in the North Fork (DM
         47) newsletter.
Captains are responsible for:
     a.  verifying those who wish to participate under the banner of their alliance;
     b.  distribution of prizes should their alliance win the Turf War.
Managers must:
     a.  Submit one (1) RSI Roll-Up Gift Certificate to participate to:
          Baphomet, mgr. Knights Templar (568), DM 47 -- North Fork, or
          Rick Stringer
          13 St. Michael's CT
          Elkton, MD 21921
     b.  Announce their intent to compete with manager name, team name and alliance
         they will be fighting under in the North Fork (DM 47) newsletter.
Rules:
     1.  No scoring will begin until a Gift Cert is received.  No exceptions.
     2.  Before a manager can compete, he/she must declare and be verified by the
         Captain of the alliance he/she has claimed for;
     3.  Only one (1) team per player may compete.  NO multiple aliases please.
         Violations will result in disqualification.
     4.  The contest will begin on the turn following the January F2F and run for 12
         turns.
     5.  The turn  a declaration and verification will begin the scoring process.
     6.  No declarations or verifications will be accepted after Turn 10 of the Turf
         War 5.
     7.  For the purpose of scoring, I reserve the right to make all final decisions.
Scoring:
                  Win     Loss     Kill     Die
Challenge          +2      -2       +5       -5
Match-Up           +1      -1       +1       -5

Dark Arena        +10      -5       xx       xx
Special Scoring:
     a.  Each mention in the Spy Report is worth 2 points (team mentions only!)
     b.  Each Style Master is worth 2 points.
     c.  Duelmaster Throne is worth 2 points
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
