                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of ERINIKA!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp 
Eyes, Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  Fortune did not smile upon BASH BROS 
PAINTING this time out who this turn suffered a fall into 11th position in the wake 
of a 0-0-0 round.  Did only my eyes note the 3-0-0 record which CALENDAR GIRLS 
managed to post this round?  I don't doubt that such a record will draw challengers!  
This time out SUN RAY made its bid for the throne as it Bloodfeuded DOLT in an all 
out contest of skill for possession of the title!  Not for nothing has DOLT in the 
past laid claim to the Duelmaster's throne, and this week she's proven hers combat 
skill yet again.  No confirmation, but my sources claim that the top team has gained 
their position using magical aids.  Charmed weapons perhaps?   
     I have been in deep conclave with my spies who watched all that has recently 
transpired.  Indeed there is much I would report.  I saw one fighter that warriors 
avoided when this week's challenge seeking began.  WHO DA MAN? is feared.  This much 
I can say.  Apparently the stalwarts of GASHOUSE GANG are catching the bulk of jests 
down at the challenging board for their large share of the avoids.  Loose talk at the 
arena has reached my ears and it but confirms the knowledge that many fighters are 
after KLEPTO MAN.  Watch your back!  At the gambling halls I have started to bet 
money on STINK.  It has got the courage it takes.  Witness its challenge this turn 
against JEROME BETTIS!  The DUDS stable will be up late tonight, for indeed it was 
STINK who claimed victory in the contest, ascending 24 in recognition!  A match that 
raised a few eyebrows at the games this week, it seems that ADAM posted a challenge 
against the more highly recognized RASMUS.  The results, you ask?  Well, the 
firebrand ADAM beat RASMUS.  Remember warriors, this is the discipline of steel.   
     What warrior does not hone his years, impatiently waiting for the moment of his 
foe's mortality?  Some say a warrior is judged by the way he bears arms.  One thing 
is sure, better a dagger in hand then a sword on the belt!   
     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

   The Turf Wars are coming. The Turf Wars are coming. Come one; come all. Gather

your alliance or collection of 2-4 teams and join in the competition. Hurry up! While 
Feb 2016 seems so far away, it is only six or so turns away, and it does take a while 
to make sure you have a team in DM47, communicate to find a group, send in certs, 
announce in writing in DM47, etc. etc. Teams of all levels and managers of all types, 
including newbies, find themselves competing quite well in this type of competition. 
Let's make the tenth anniversary (TWX) the biggest and best ever.
     This 10th competition will be hosted and moderated by the triumvirate of Assur, 
Master Darque and Oz The All-Wonderful.    
     Anyone may participate: known alliances, new alliances, or temporary alliances 
created solely to compete in the Turf War!  

To participate, each alliance must:
    a.  Announce the Captain of the alliance in the North Fork (DM 47) newsletter.
    b.  Indicate in the newsletter which Captain/alliance you will join.
    c.  Announcements made on the D2 Forums or elsewhere will not be accepted.

Captains are responsible for:
    a.  Verifying/authorizing, in the North Fork newsletter those who wish to 
        participate under the banner of their alliance. The confirmation/verification 
        must occur after, or in the same newsletter, but not before, the participant's 
        declaration. (Lack of participant indication of joining and/or subsequent lack 
        of Captain confirmation will delay a team's participation in the Turf War.)
    b.  Distribution of prizes should their alliance win the Turf War.
    c.  Submit two (2) RSI Roll-Up Certificates to participate. (Note: Captains may, 
        if they wish, submit certs for all potential members of their alliance.)

Participating managers who are not Captains must:
    a.  Submit two (2) RSI Roll-Up Certificates to participate (Unless already 
        submitted by Captain. Note: extras will not be returned, but will go into the 
        winning pool of prizes.)
    b.  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 or Chatzy will not be accepted.
        1.  No scores will be tabulated until two RSI Gift Certificates are received, 
            and participant indication and captain confirmation are posted in the 
            North Fork newsletter. NO EXCEPTIONS.
        2.  Before a manager can compete, he/she must declare themselves in the North 
            Fork (DM 47) newsletter as stated above AND be verified in the same or 
            subsequent newsletter by the alliance Captain they will represent.
        3.  Only one (1) team per player may compete.  No arena multiple teams or 
            aliases will be allowed.  Violations will result in immediate manager 
            disqualification (including team point adjustments) from the Turf War (so 
            be sure to take any multiple teams OFF of Team Maintenance and be certain 
            not to run any other team warriors).
        4.  Scoring will NOT be retroactive for teams/alliances that do not properly 
            declare or get captain confirmation 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 score 
            will not begin until Turn 3.  All conditions must be met before scoring 
            will begin--declaration, verification, and Gift Certificate received.
        5.  No declarations or verifications will be accepted after Turn 3 of the Turf 
            War.

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. (Note: the intent is to have a 
very thorough set of rules so that few decisions, if any, are required from the 
moderators.)

Scoring will be as follows for Fights:

Team Points:
    a.  Fights made: (includes DA fights) 
            1 = 0 points,  2 = 0 points,  3 = 1 point,  4 = 3 points,  5 = 5 points
    b.  Wins earned: 
            1 = 1 point,  2 = 3 points,  3 = 6 points,  4 = 10 points,  5 = 15 points
    c.  Champion win = 3 additional points 
    d.  Down Challenge = (-5) points each (DM is exempt from DC rule)
    e.  Team with most wins per round earns 4 additional points
            (If ties, no points awarded)

Alliance Points (Rounds 1 through 5):
    a.  Fights made (DA fights count as a fight made)
            All (each) team of the alliance fights 1 to 3 warriors = 3 points
            All (each) team fights 4+ warriors = 6 points
            All (each) team fights all five warriors = 9
    b.  Alliance with most wins per that round = 5 points
            (If tied, no points awarded.)

Alliance Points (Rounds 6 through 10 as alliance point scoring doubles):
    c.  Fights made (DA fights count as a fight made)
            All (each) team of the alliance fights 1 to 3 warriors = 6 points
            All (each) team fights 4+ warriors = 12 points
            All (each) team fights all five warriors = 18
    d.  Alliance with most wins per that round = 10 points
    e.  (If tied, no points awarded.)
   
Champions:
    a.  A Champion may be declared, but one is not mandatory. It is to the 
        team's/alliance's advantage that you do so.
    b.  Only one Champion allowed per manager at any given time.
    c.  Champions that graduate or are killed by another warrior or the Dark Arena, 
        may be replaced.
    d.  Champions must have fought at least one previous fight in the North Fork (DM47 
        arena) to be able to be declared a champion. 
    e.  A Champion can be declared on any round and point factors will begin that same 
        turn. (Must meet above 4 conditions prior to declaring.)
    f.  Challenges to or by Champions against members of the same alliance shall be 
        scored as a loss for each warrior.

     No warrior may be substituted without the proper use of the DA or arena death or 
death in a tournament or graduation. A maximum of five warriors may be on a team at 
any time. (The penalty for such substitution is -10 points.) 

     It is not in the spirit of competition to challenge fellow members of the same 
alliance. Hence, challenges as such will be scored as losses for both warriors.

Downchallenges:
    a.  A downchallenge occurs when a warrior challenges a warrior with lesser 
        recognition points. 
    b.  No challenge or bloodfeud by The Duelmaster shall be deemed a downchallenge. 
    c.  No challenge of the Duelmaster shall be deemed a downchallenge.
    d.  Bloodfeuds against warriors with lesser recognition are deemed downchallenges.

Tournament Considerations:
    a.  Tournament participation is allowed and ENCOURAGED as a great form of 
        recognition for North Fork.
    b.  It is an opportunity to gain skills and preferred challenging within the Turf 
        War.

Special Considerations:
    a.  Each alliance begins the Turf War with zero (0) points.
    b.  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.
    c.  There will be a maximum of four (4) teams/managers allowed per alliance for 
        the Turf War VII. The minimum is two (2).
    d.  The Dark Arena may be used at any time without penalty.
    e.  If at any time, the Moderators determine that any non-TW team in the arena is 
        aiding and/or abetting any TW alliance or team, the affected points won by the 
        gifted team/alliance will be disallowed and the aiding non-TW team will be 
        asked to desist from play in the arena until after the Turf War concludes.

Prizes:
     The Turf War is meant to be a "winner takes all" contest.  All prizes, except the 
Endu Award listed below, and 100% of the Gift Certificates will be awarded to the 
Captain of the winning alliance at the end of the competition.  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.
     All entry fees (rollup certs) are awarded to the winning alliance.  
     The following prizes have been secured from RSI:
        a.  Renaming of the North Fork (DM 47) arena;
        b.  Renaming of all Dark Arena Monsters 
        c.  Known Favorites for one DM47 warrior on each team of the winning alliance 
            (warrior must be ranked Initiate or above, must be alive, and must have at 
            least one DM47 arena fight to receive this award).
        d.  +1 Skill bonus (three) for each manager on the winning alliance.  Bonus 
            potions must be applied to living warriors from DM 47, no more than two 
            skills per warrior.
        e.  +1 Skill bonus potion (one) for each and every individual manager who 
            fights in all 10 rounds AND at least 45 fights of the Turf War.  Bonus 
            potion must be applied to a living warrior from (DM 47) (Endu Award).
        f.  Two additional random rollup sheets or rollup certs for each manager of 
            the winning alliance from RSI.
     These RSI awards will be listed by the Moderator for claiming from RSI (Lee) 
within 4 turns of the end of TW VI. The certs will be mailed to the winning alliance 
by the Moderators within two weeks of the end of the TW.
