                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of LIN 
TIRIAN brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Later days, THE LEGENDS, since SAND 
DANCERS took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  Of course, we're 
all terribly impressed to see MIRIAL ADAMANT win a fight and gain 15 points, 
terribly.  Due to absence, and inability to defend the throne, ROGAR THORFIN has lost 
the Title of Duelmaster.  Start setting that alarm earlier!  And it's out with the 
old, in with the new, as JIGGER KREE takes the Title and last week's bar tab from the 
old Duelmaster.  Heh, heh.  Kickbacks and bribes, kickbacks and bribes, how else do 
you think some of these guys win their fights?  Skill?  Ha!   
     My mother always told me, 'If you don't have anything nice to say, start 
talking.' I loved that woman.   
     Ah, now we come to my favorite part, where we see all the guys who are dead and 
gone, and get to see if their team cared.  Honor is like a chainmail shirt, it only 
shines through use.  Certain nameless cowards will doubtless rebuke me on this one.   
     There's got to be a better place in LIN TIRIAN to get a drink than The Lost Hope 
Inn!  Any suggestions?  Phlllt!  Just had to do that before I leave the fine city of 
LIN TIRIAN.  I feel much better now.  I see the crowds are getting restless, I must 
leave now-- Snide Clemens

Rogar Thorfin -- Go go go!  You look good on the top of the heap, trying to fend off
the challenges of upstarts while keeping your balance on that slippery peak. --
Jigger Kree
P.S.  And I don't mind the skills, either.

Captured Orc?  What a travesty.  Apparently the arena recruiters weren't up to
capturing an orc, so they settled for a dwarf, adding blindness to ineptitude. --
Shana the Knife

Almost I could feel sorry for the Ambitious Guard, locked into this dead-end
ambition.  I wonder what HIS crime was that he was given this punishment? -- Chalbaeg

Take that, you Convicted Thief!  And any others I meet up with will get the same! --
Mirial Adamant

Houdini -- We are almost all empty spots here.  We will breathlessly await your
tricks. -- Jorja, Sand Dancers

     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

     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!

     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

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
     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!)
     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.

     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
     i.  Only 7 teams are permitted per alliance for the Turf War 5.
     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!
