                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of ERINIKA!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp 
Eyes, Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  Former top team CALENDAR GIRLS was 
unseated this week as MONGOL HORDE moved up from 2nd ranking to take the top spot 
with a 4-0-0 record for the round.  The proverbial rising comet can only hope to 
compare with THE BULLS' team record!  A 2-0-0 week and now a firm grasp on a 8th 
place ranking.  VULPECULA bore the brunt of major assault on their standings this 
week as they dropped to 24th position as the result of going 0-1-0!  My tutors were 
fond of telling me that the higher you rise the harder you fall.  This week OCTANS 
went 0-1-0 and fell 14 notches into 28th!  My praise to ALPHABET SOUP for their 3-0-0 
week this time out.  Indeed, it was a skillfully fought round deserving of notice!  
DJIBOUTI CALL caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial commission as it skillfully 
bested EMBEZZLING SCRIBE and was awarded 19 points in recognition.  In one of the 
week's more notable duels, PREVENT A BULL put down NERGAL, causing him to lose 12 
points of recognition in the process.  Due to his absence and inability to defend the 
throne, MURMILLO has lost the title of Duelmaster.  This time victory fell to the 
grasp of the usurper.  All hail ROSENTHAL, Duelmaster of ERINIKA!  Heed this!  A seer 
has warned that if exactly 6 die in duels this week, the whole city shall perish!  
Just remember...5 or 7!   
     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.  MYTHOS 14 is feared.  This much I 
can say.  Methinks more than a few here could name the guild it was that spent the 
better part of last week avoiding MYTHOS 14.  Indeed it was SUE'S BOYS.  Mighty 
fighters cannot but expect competition from those below.  ALPHA TUCANAE take warning! 
You have more than a few enemies in ERINIKA.  A match that raised a few eyebrows at 
the games this week, it seems that GARY ALLEN posted a challenge against the more 
highly recognized ALPHA TUCANAE.  The results, you ask?  Well, the firebrand GARY 
ALLEN beat ALPHA TUCANAE.  Remember warriors, this is the discipline of steel.   
     Vendettas.  Bloodied blades and broken spears.  Indeed the city has seen more 
than its fair share of red in recent times.  Dark alleys may hide both secrets and 
assassins.  In the arena there is only the brightness of steel.  Keep vigil always!   
     A thought before I go.  Each warrior practices one style, but must not the wise 
manager learn the secrets of them all?  More than a sharp eye must I keep, indeed a 
stout pair of legs must I keep as well!  The endless paths of Alastari await me!  
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

                     SECOND DELUXE ARVAT CONTEST EXTRAORDINAIRE

Who can join?  Anyone with a team in Arvat as of 11/1/2020.

When does it start?  First turn due after 11/1/2020.

How long does it run?  13 turns.

How do I join?  Announce your manager name and team name in the Arvat newsletter prior 
to 11/1/2020 and state that you are entering the contest.  Prior to the contest 
actually starting you need to have 2 rollup certs sent to the Dark One care of RSI.  
No sheets, no contest.

How do I win the contest?  The team which has accrued the most points as of the end of 
the 13th turn is the winner.  The team which has the 2nd most points is declared the 
runner up.  And the team which has the 3rd most points is declared honorable 
contender.  Everyone else is a loser and should be ridiculed.

How do I score points?

1.  Every challenge you win vs. another team in the contest = 10 points, as long as 
    that challenge is to a warrior equal to or above yours in the rankings.  Except 
    for the Duelmaster who can challenge anyone he wants.

2.  You also earn bonus points for every challenge won.  For every point of 
    recognition your target is ranked above you, you earn one bonus point.  This is 
    for challenges only.

3.  If you are challenged by a warrior below you and defeat him, you will gain 5 
    points.

4.  Also every random matchup that you win will earn you 5 points ? up or down.

5.  You CAN downchallenge, however you get no points for doing so, and if you are 
    beaten, your opponent will earn 10 points and the right to ridicule you in the 
    newsletter.

6.  Bloodfeud challenges count just like regular challenges during the contest.

7.  In addition there are the following bonus points that are awarded each turn:

 A.  Duelmaster earns 10 points

 B.  Graduating a warrior earns 10 points

 C.  Recognition Leader (Chartered or Unchartered) earns 5 points (if the Duelmaster 
     is the recognition leader as well, then only the DM points apply)

 D.  Popularity Leader earns 5 points

 E.  Turn?s most popular earns 5 points

 F.  Top team on the move earns 5 points

 G.  Current Top team earns 10 points

 H.  Any warrior that earns a Tournament Champion in either the January FTF or April 
     Mail In  earns 20 points

 I.  Any warrior that earns a Tournament Victor in either of those tournaments earns 
     10 points

 J.  Note that Top Chartered and Unchartered team awards do NOT earn points

What are the rules regarding other teams in the arena?  If you challenge any warriors 
not participating in the contest you LOSE 20 points, unless the challenged warrior is 
the Duelmaster.  It is always acceptable to challenge the Duelmaster.  HOWEVER ? if 
you are challenged by a team not in the contest, you may challenge back the following 
turn.  If you win that challenge you will get 10 points.

If any manager has a 2nd (or 3rd) team in the arena they may NOT challenge any warrior 
of any team participating in the contest or they are DISQUALIFIED. 

What do I win if I win this contest? 

1.  The winner wins all of the rollup certificates given as entry fee for the contest.  
    In addition, the winner gets to pick 3 of the prizes below.

2.  The runner up gets to pick 2 of the prizes below.

3.  The honorable contender gets to pick one of the prizes below.

In addition, all competitors in the contest who run all 13 turns and at least 62 total 
fights will earn a potion of +1 bonus, which must be used on a warrior who 
participated at least 1 fight in the contest. 

Also, the team that scores the most points on any one turn of the contest (other than 
the winner, runner up or honorable contender) can pick one prize that was NOT selected 
by those three.

    rollup that you receive within the next 6 month)

                                     KALTOS KAOS

  THEREFORE THEN, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses [who have 
  borne testimony to the Truth], let us strip off and throw aside every encumbrance 
  (unnecessary weight) and that sin which so readily (deftly and cleverly) clings to 
  and entangles us, and let us run with patient endurance and steady and active 
  persistence the appointed course of the race that is set before us, --- Hebrews 
  12:1 Amplified Classic

                                      * * * * *

Ironhand, the owner of The Golden Ship Inn, stood before the small crowd that had 
gathered and motioned for his guests to have a seat with a sweeping wave of the steel 
hook that had replaced his right hand after a bloody engagement between his ship and 
another ten years ago.

Because of the location of The Golden Ship Inn, standing on a headland overlooking the 
main harbor on Kaltos, the disrepair of the dilapidated Kaltos Arena could not be 
seen.  From the turret on top of the inn, one could look across to Lord Lindharrow's 
castle on the opposite horn of the little bay and see all the shipping sheltered 
within.

But this evening was not about castles and shipping, but rather how a once magnificent 
Kaltos Arena could possibly be restored to some of its former glory.

Although Lindharrow of Vandal's Bay is the Protector of Kaltos, the island's 
representative on the Crown Council and the closest thing to a governor, it was not 
Lindharrow that Ironhand had brought before the gathered crowd, but rather it was 
Arenamaster Troktai and another rather special guest.  There are few laws in Kaltos 
and those that exist are not rigorously enforced, which is why Ironhand chose to 
invite Arenamaster Troktai to address the issue of the dilapidated Kaltos Arena.

Arenamaster Troktai got directly to the point, without a lot of pomp and circumstance, 
by introducing a Veteran Manager, known far and wide as Hammer, who had recently 
returned to Alastari. One of his motivations for returning was to host a contest in a 
fast arena that would hearken back to the glory of the Hammer hosted Morya Madness 
that had begun over 17 years ago and concluded over 15 years ago: 28 rounds of Madness 
in Morya Arena that Hammer desired to emulate in Kaltos arena for 25 rounds!

Hammer stood before the small crowd to unveil his plan to rejuvenate Kaltos Arena (DM 
5) at the behest of Arenamaster Troktai, including an announcement of the upcoming 
Kaltos Kaos contest to be held in the currently sparsely populated Delarq Arena (4 of 
7 active in Kaltos arena as of turn 912).  Kaltos arena had fallen into a bit of 
disrepair with the sparse revenue generated from even sparser crowds, but the much 
needed revenue from a 25 turn contest beginning with T-926 (due date 2/1/21) and 
ending with T-950 (due date 1/3/22) would provide more than enough for repairs and 
improvements for the overall prosperity of Kaltos Arena!

Hammer had also succeeded in purchasing the northeast section of Kaltos arena to build 
his Klub Kaltos, as an act of good faith that the Kaltos Kaos contest would attract 
enough managers, both old and new, to pump new life into a once glorious arena!  Klub 
Kaltos would feature some of the finest dining and gambling venues that Kaltos had 
ever seen, plus provide a training area and housing for the stable that Hammer was 
entering for the Kaltos Kaos.

Five of his retired Lord Protectors had been lured by the Veteran Manager to help make 
Klub Kaltos a success, by providing future patrons the opportunity to rub shoulders 
with some of his legendary Lord Protectors from the early years of Hammer's managerial 
history.

Zebra of Jungle Fever (DM 39), a Total Parry with a Short Sword as his favorite 
weapon, who was the only Hammer-managed warrior to ever TV in a tourney, had agreed to 
oversee the dining area and mingle with the crowd. He had won a TV in a Novices 
tourney (1 or 2 FE) long ago at a Tempe Facer, before the Novices tourney had been 
eliminated from tournaments by the Gladiatorial Commission.

Death Duck 1, a Basher with a Morningstar favorite weapon, along with Death Duck 7, a 
Piker favoring a Small Shield as her favorite weapon, had both fought in Kaltos Arena 
years ago as representatives of Da Deadly Ducks, the first Hammer managed stable to 
ever run in Kaltos. Da Deadly Ducks duo were now assigned as celebrities to run the 
Klub Kaltos gambling facilities.

Mahatsawd, a Basher favoring a Mace as his favorite weapon, along with Madkawraw?s 
Law, a Ripper favoring an Epee as her favorite weapon, were both from the veteran 
manager?s first-ever stable that began fighting on Noblish Island under the Milchamah 
banner.

Hammer introduced the duo as two of his favorite warriors from his original stable, 
Milchamah, who the veteran manager had convinced to come to Klub Kaltos to train the 
stable that Hammer was entering in the Kaltos Kaos Klassick Kontest Kompetition.  Klub 
Kaltos, the veteran manager explained to the gathered crowd, included a gladiator 
training facility where his stable of warriors, who Hammer was entering in the Kaltos 
Kaos, would be housed for training in private as well as featured in some public 
exhibition matches for his gambling facilities.

A ripple of excited cheers arose from the five Gladiators that had been languishing in 
oblivion these past several years during the absence of the veteran manager, their 
stable all-but-forgotten, but Hammer raised both his hands and stared somberly at his 
rusty relics, before announcing publicly:

"You have been transferred to Storm Point arena!"

The Veteran Manager had to break the news to his Kaltos Kriminals (514) stable that 
they had been transferred to Storm Point Arena (DM 86) because of two of the contest 
categories that were to be the highlights of the Kaltos Kaos (as had the same two 
categories also been the contest category highlights in the original Morya Madness 
contest that Hammer had hosted those many long years ago!), namely, the First Initiate 
Duelmaster and the Top Ten Fighting Styles.  Obviously, the only eligible warriors to 
win this prize are those who are listed in the Initiates rankings on the first 
round/Turn 926 or later!  Therefore, the Kaltos Kriminals with 4 arena fight 
experience, namely Assault N Battery, Wanted For Murder, Shady Larry LaRue and Trick 
Ponie Polly, would probably not be eligible to compete for the First Initiate 
Duelmaster [after fighting in either one or both of the two upcoming tourneys], nor 
for one of the Top Ten Fighting Styles!

Upon hearing "You have been transferred to Storm Point arena!" the Kaltos Kriminals 
were crestfallen!

    The RSI approved prize for the First Initiate Duelmaster is the opportunity 
    to rename the DM 5 arena for 6 months.

    The RSI approved prize for each of the Top Ten Fighting Styles is the 
    favorite weapon knowledge reveal for any one of a contest-registered team?s 
    active warriors on round 25/Turn 950.  Eligible warriors must declare their 
    name and fighting style in the DM 5 personal ads on the first round that they 
    enter the Kaltos Kaos.  All warriors must have 0 arena fight experience to 
    enter as a Top Ten Fighting Style competitor and must rank as an 0-1 or 1-0 
    Initiate after their first arena fight experience! 

In other words, any warrior ranked as a Challenger Initiate with more than one arena 
fight experience after their fight debut is automatically disqualified to compete for 
one of the Top Ten Style awards, so choose your tournament entries wisely!  It gives 
non-tourney managers the opportunity to compete for a Top Ten Fighting Style prize! 
[Tourney warriors may die!]

This obviously eliminates the four Kaltos Kriminals mentioned above, because they 
already have 4 arena fights; therefore, only Cooking The Books would be eligible to 
compete with 0 arena fight experience!

    First Initiate Duelmaster contenders include every warrior on a registered 
    team that is ranked as an Initiate after the first round in the DM 5 Turn 926 
    newsletter. [This includes tourney experienced warriors and warriors who have 
    fought in DM 5 on previous turns.]

"You have been transferred to Storm Point Arena!" resonated in their ears as Hammer's 
Kaltos Kriminals grumbled a bit at being denied the opportunity to compete in the 
Kaltos Kaos, which had a rippling effect throughout the sparse crowd.  Arenamaster 
Troktai stepped forward while Hammer spent a few minutes talking privately to his 
Kaltos Kriminals stable.

Arenamaster Troktai raised his hands to quiet the small crowd as he proclaimed that 
the winner of the most 'This Week's Most Favorite Warrior' and the winner of the most 
'This Week's Least Favorite Warrior' would be awarded the first choice to change the 
name and statements of the Dark Arena monster of their choice [with exception of the 
Arenamaster himself] and the first choice to change the name and statements of the NPC 
character of their choice, respectively.

    RSI Prize: Rename and Change the Statements of a DM 5 Dark Arena Monster of 
    your choice [excepting the Arenamaster] is awarded to the team with the most 
    'This Week's Most Favorite Warrior' awards listed over the course of the 
    contest.

    RSI Prize: Rename and Change the Statements of a DM 5 NPC Character of your 
    choice is awarded to the team with the most 'This Week's Least Favorite 
    Warrior' awards listed over the course of the contest.

Arenamaster Troktai went on to proclaim that the remaining Dark Arena monsters and NPC 
characters that were not chosen by the two winners will be placed in a drawing pool 
[to change the name and statements] from which the remaining Kaltos Kaos registered 
managers would be selected, as bonus prizes for merely being registered for the Kaltos 
Kaos! The first 20 managers to register for the Kaltos Kaos & the host & co-scorer are 
guaranteed to automatically be entered in the random draw!

Arenamaster Troktai motioned for Hammer to conclude the announcements of the other 
Kaltos Kaos Kontest Kategories, as his Kaltos Kriminals sat down for more drinks, 
resigned to their Arena 86 fate!

Kaltos Kaos would draw some of the most competitive managers and teams that Kaltos DM 
5 had ever seen bleed on the arena sands!

"Well Wishes and Good Luck to All Involved," says the Co-Scorer who will be posting

                       TURF WAR XII -- TW12       (Rev 8-8-20)
                      (Start turn after FTF or Mailer JAN 2021)

                   Bring acclaim and glory to the North Fork (DM47)

TURF WARS is a team event and unlike all other events in D2, involves "certs."

Anyone may participate; known alliances, new alliances, thrown-together alliances, or 
temporary alliances created solely to compete in the Turf War!  To participate, each 
alliance or participant must:

1.  Announce an Alliance Name, Captain, and Assistant of the alliance in the North 
    Fork (DM 47) newsletter or on the RSI site. 

2.  Determine and submit either 1 or 2 or 3 certificates per participant. Amounts can 
    be different per alliance participant. (See Scoring section for more details.)

3.  Each participating team must run in DM47 on one of the three turns prior to the 
    start of TW12 so that the team shows in the last newsletter prior to the 1st TW12 
    turn.

At the end of the game, Captains are responsible for distributing any winning 
certificates to the team participants.

No alliance scores can be tabulated until the chosen amount of RSI Gift Certificates 
are received, the teams are listed in the newsletter, and participant indication and 
captain confirmation are posted in the North Fork newsletter.

All entry certs should be sent to Oz or The Consortium via RSI.

Only one (1) team per player/manager may compete in the Turf Wars, and only one team 
per player/manager may compete in North Fork DM47 during the Turf War. 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). NOTE: Since alliances require two teams, this would mean the remaining 
alliance member cannot score in the TW.

Any Turf War team must show/be posted/listed in the DM47 Newsletter just prior to 
their actual scoring/participation. (E.g. New teams, transfers, current teams must 
show up in the newsletter prior to the beginning of participation, allowing opponent 
knowledge and challenging/avoiding.) Manager/teams may not participate/score in the 
Turf War the same turn they are first posted in the newsletter. (So get your team in 
the newsletter early.) Teams do not have to run that turn prior to TW12-T1, but will 
have had to run shortly before to allow their warriors to be visible in the newsletter 
just prior to TW12-T1.

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, confirmation, NL listing, and Gift 
Certificate received.

No declarations or confirmations will be accepted after Turn 2 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.)

No warrior may be substituted without the proper use of the DA or arena death or death 
in a tournament or graduation. There must be a maximum of five only on a team at any 
point and time. (The penalty for such substitution is -25 points.)

SCORING will be as follows: Only three things affect scoring. Number of initial certs 
submitted, wins, fighting all five warriors, and the round modifier. (Later rounds 
have higher modifiers.)

NUMBER OF CERTS SUBMITTED

1. Alliances will start the competition with the amount of points based on the amount 
   of certs submitted.

          Two certs (1 each, the minimum required) = 0 points.
          Three certs total = 3 points for the alliance
          Four certs total = 6 points for the alliance
          Five certs total = 10 for the alliance
          Six certs (the max) total = 15 for the alliances

2. After the sixth and after the eleventh round those same amount of turn starting 
   points are awarded to each alliance.

3. Hence, alliances may earn up to 45 points through the event via certs. (Note: cert 
   points are not impacted by the Round Modifier.)

NUMBER OF WINS

1. Each teammate win per round is worth 3 base points. (e.g. 1 win = 3 points, 5 wins 
   = 15 points)

FIGHT ALL FIVE WARRIORS

1. Each turn there is a +3 base point bonus for each teammate fighting all five 
   warriors

2. Each turn there is a -3 base point penalty for each teammate not fighting all five 
   warriors.

ROUND MODIFIER

1. The first 6 rounds of TW12 are scored at 1x base points. (Base points includes win 
   scoring, and any all-5 bonus/penalty, but not any cert scoring)

2. The 7th through 11th rounds are scored at 2x base points.

3. For the final and 12th round, base point scoring is at x3.

Special Considerations:

1. There will be NO alliance or team changes once the contest has begun.  If you begin 
   the Turf War with Alliance X, you must end the Turf War with Alliance X.  If you 
   begin the Turf War with Team X, you must end the Turf War with Team X.

2. Each alliance is comprised of two and only two managers.

3. The Dark Arena may be used without penalty. (Limit twice per warrior.)

4, 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

Certs:  The winning alliance gets 70% of the pooled certs. Second place alliance gets 
20%, and third place gets 10%.

It is the responsibility of the Captain of the winning alliance to distribute Gift 
Certificates to his alliance. Moderators will mail them shortly after the final round. 
Moderators will submit a list of each manager winner to RSI at the completion of the 
contest for the RSI awarded prizes, to then be claimed by the manager from RSI

mailed to the winning alliance by the Moderators within two weeks of the end of the 
TW.

Moderators:  The Moderators for this event will be Oz, Master Darque, and Assur. (The

Their decisions will be final.  All questions, comments, and scoring disputes may be 
directed to Land of Oz or Darque Forces or Bash Bros Park via diplo in DM 47.  
Managers with internet access may send a private message to [The Consortium] or
