                                      SPY REPORT

     It is I, Novgorodny Vir, Spymaster of Spymasters.  Look on my work, ye mighty, 
and despair!  The boys at MEAT YOUR MAKER left the arena dejected, after being kicked 
out of the top spot by ONE MAN BAND.  Good show!  ONE MAN BAND had cause to 
celebrate, after TABOR got 14 points by beating PERSISTANT BEGGAR.  A certain someone 
should cut down on the drinking and practice more, after losing 7 points to ACUMEN.  
(Discrete enough, STUMP FIDDLE?) Now I can't insult DRUWEZ, as he has gloriously 
dueled to the top.  Oh great new Duelmaster!!!  (Stop me if I lay it on too thick) So 
who was the warrior seen charging into immovable walls and challenging dead trees?  
Someone's got a basic problem...   
     My mother wished me to avoid conflict, and seek the gentle trade of Spyreporter. 
But warriors aren't supposed to avoid fights!  Like the noble eagle soaring amongst 
the mountaintops, so stand the warriors of TITANS III, alone and unchallenged.  Like 
a pup with its tail between its legs, ONE MAN BAND scurried away from TITANS III.  
Oh, the shame!  Everyone is famous for fifteen minutes, and HAMBURGER HILL is it 
right now.  Most challenged warrior.  Isn't MEAT YOUR MAKER proud!   
     Ah, the duel!  The roar of the oppenent, the smell of the crowd!  Ask not for 
whom the sword slashes; it slashes for thee.   
     All good things must come to an end.  My fingers tire and I fear my incessant 
prattling may cause unfair judgement upon my impeccable character.  Can anything 
compare to the pleasure of writing Spyreports for DRAGONHEAD?  On that giddy note I 
take my leave-- Novgorodny Vir

A salute to Duelmaster Hammy Hamster of Meat Your Maker fame. -- Allegro

Myoptic -- I think you played music on my countenance.  (sigh) -- Tabor

All -- Perhaps I have this all wrong?  Is this arena 82 rather than the 72 I thought
it was?  Is that why I am the only one writing personals?  Or could it be something I
did?  Or.... -- Allegro, One Man Band

Bobs Ur Uncle -- And I'm your daddy! -- Um-Pah

Well, Porky Pig dumped on us taking a bypass to the DM Column, but surely Hammy
Hamster is a better animal than that? -- Allegro

Chuckles -- I enjoys me music, but I hadta laugh at that result.  It was me high
note.  Yes! -- Stump Fiddle

May your Mailer have been exciting, pleasing, and rewarding. -- Allegro and the One
Man Band

All -- Well, well...here are some gladiators you can fight...those computer generated
fighters can come too easily, if you know what you mean.  *wink*  Good luck to all.
-- Sir Chester

All -- Manager of Crime Wave, Ad Hominem, and Glaciation Guild II, i.e., Sir Chester.

Vanek -- I may join you in DM 81.  Took a peek and it's a big arena.  Are you on the
Duel2 web site?  I have been out of action for at least two years. -- Sir Chester

Hail Alastarians!
     Allow me to introduce myself.  I am Vanek, manager of the Warmasters in the No-
Tourney arena of Shadowspire.  I come to you with a public service announcement.
Some of you may already be aware of Shadowspire and some of you may not realize what
exactly you're missing.  This isn't your average arena.  This is Shadowspire, a large
and very active arena where role-playing is encouraged; many managers are active both
the personal ads and the D2 forums online, and excitement reigns with many grudge
matches from turn to turn.
     If you haven't checked arena 81 out, I urge you to do so.  After returning to
the game almost 2 years ago, after a 15+ year hiatus, I was looking to try and
recapture the magic of the game I remembered from my youth.  After finding my first
two arenas lacking, I almost quit the game again.  That was until I found the newly
opening Shadowspire.  It was here that I found the magic and excitement that I
remembered.  I truly love this arena and am sure you will too if given a chance.
Rookie or experienced veteran, it matters not.  Both have come together here to
successfully make an arena with plenty of competition to challenge the vets, yet with
the no tourney format, friendly enough for the novices to get their feet wet and
learn (or relearn) the game.  When I say that even novices can find success here, I
speak from personal experience.  I still consider myself a "newbie" to the game but
have found plenty of success with my first two Duelmaster titles and two ADM
graduates to date.
     I encourage you all to check out the D2 forums at www.reality.com/duel2/ and
look over both the Shadowspire newsletter and DM-81 forum section at the bottom of
the page.  The forum banter and personal ads help to clearly show that the "old
school" feel for the game is still alive and well here in Shadowspire.
     Also, if you're a former Shadowspire manager who is currently away, I encourage
you to return and help continue to make this one of the most entertaining arenas in
the game today!
     I hope to see many new faces in the near future and am excited to see the return
of some of the old faces whom have been away!
     Sincerely,
          Vanek

After 17 long years they are finally cutting the Cowboy loose.  Red & stinging, my
hand is now sufficiently slapped.  The state of Texas' boot print is stamped across
my ***... Uncle Damnit!  I am only 34 (think about it...) so plenty of time to
reinvent myself...prospects are great.  After wading through the culture shock I hope
to be amongst you soon, dishing out paper "w"itch slaps and taking my share of them
from you.  See you @ the Winter face '09?  Only time will tell.  Good luck. --
CFH/Rat Salad, 5 Below Zero and an assortment of other underachieving thugs.
P.S.  Contact info coming soon for those who want it; email and all that other fun

                                 *TURF WAR VI RULES*
                            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

These awards will be listed by the Moderator for claiming from RSI (Lee) within 4
turns of the end of TW VI.

dealings during the course of the contest.  Their decisions will be final.  All
