                             Notes from the arena champ.

Hooaah!  No surprise I am still here.  Not with the swine I see groveling at 
my sweaty feet.  Jarvis, nice try, I guess.  Throwing a challenge at Death's 
Hand and the Rabbi this time.  More worried about Paladin's boy, then Deeders' 
Preacher.  Then, next turn, I believe it will be Kashitz' turn. 

                                          Still your better,

                                          Fever Dog

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, Warriors of NIATOLI ISLAND.  Allow this humble servant Novgorodny Vir 
to give you a respite from the fights in the form of this Spyreport.  He who laughs 
last didn't get the joke.  Speaking of laughing at jokes, observe THE ILLEARTH.  Last 
week they got 0-5-0 to drop by 7!  What's a move up by 6 you ask?  (alright, maybe 
you didn't ask)  Cause for celebration, according to NYE MAULERS.  Good things come 
to those who fight well, as WILLIAMSBURG MALITIA can attest, moving up by 4.  
Practice pays for GWYN THE HUNTER, who pummelled ANDREW, to pocket 23 points.  Win 
some, lose some.  Speaking of which, GWYN THE HUNTER was winsome, after beating 
ANDREW and seeing him lose 14 points.  FEVER DOG found out being NIATOLI ISLAND's 
Duelmaster isn't all nuts and berries, receiving 4 challenges!  Duelmaster FEVER DOG 
from THE ILLEARTH is going for the gold, as he challenged WILLIAMSBURG MALITIA's 
DEATH'S HAND.  Ooh, the excitement!  In NIATOLI ISLAND, nothing is permanent (except 
Death), and we find ourselves a new Duelmaster, DEATH'S HAND.  Word has it one team 
in NIATOLI ISLAND is taking speech lessons to try to bore their opponent to death.  
I'll bet it works.   
     And how sociable are NIATOLI ISLAND's warriors?  Come, let us see.  Like a horde 
of jackals fleeing from the lion, so did the "warriors" in NIATOLI ISLAND avoid XXX 
BANDITS.  As a woman of good breeding scorns the "warriors" of BRASH BROS XMAS, so 
did that sorry team shy from XXX BANDITS  
     Ah, the duel!  The roar of the oppenent, the smell of the crowd!  Justice was 
served as GENOVYFA fought BLACKTOOTH GRIM in bloodfeud.  Well done, OBSIDIAN HALL!  
Ask not for whom the sword slashes; it slashes for thee.   
     Leave me now, you base fools!  Keep those sands bloody and the buzzards fat!  
NIATOLI ISLAND, I leave you now.  The Duelmaster has agreed to foot my bill at The 
Don't Drop Inn.  'Til next time-- Novgorodny Vir

Studcraft -- If you think scumming my warriors is appropriate payment for that great 
meal I had, I will pay gladly!  Not only that, but it pleased me to watch Clean Up 
with a unique strategy I thought to try out. -- Bashur

Commission -- Get your priorities straight.  You have brutalized our name.  You 
misplace our personal ads.  You withhold our paperwork.  Do you not realize that 
Niytoyle Isle the heart and blood of Alastari?!?  The atmosphere here is unique in all 
the world and recreating what exists here is near impossible!  Give us our day! --

     Pfui.  You try reading the scribbles these guys send in.  They're worse than a      
     pack of left-handed barbicoots! -- GC

Bashur -- If you think you're having trouble getting a rise out of Padre, perhaps the 
little blue pill would help? -- Bill

Padre -- I tried to return your mother's undergarments, but your directions are 
atrocious.  "Rusty Helm Trailer Park, third single wide on the left" you said, but the 
gentleman who resides there said you live in much less 'ritzy' area. What gives? --

Den -- I've missed the fun of seeing your responses.  What a twisted mind you have. 
Like the one to me saying I took out a gang leader.  Gang leader. :-)  I'm a country 
boy with a herd of cattle, unless you call a bull a "gang leader."  I stay out of the 
cities because they are full of crazies like you and other gangs.  I'm looking forward 
to your response to my last personal.  I haven't had a good laugh in a week.  Just in 
case you need some ammo for a response, there is this:  We have had 15 fights and you 
are 9-6 on me.  Change is coming. -- Padre

Bill -- What team do you manage?  I can show you why I'm still here (and will stay). 
-- Padre

General Bashur -- I laid off of you because our first meeting was random (both of us 
first turn) and you got a better result against what was a bunch of scrubs.  Now if 
you want to renew that, bring it on.  And since you can determine my warrior's stats, 
tell me what Pro 1's stats are.  You met him last turn. -- Padre

General Rash -- Brevity is the sole of wit. -- Phil My Beer

Chief Justice -- You. Are. Welcome. -- Philthball

My, my, it appears that a few of you losers had to say something mentioning my team.  
I just wonder, are most of you AA a bunch of middle-aged, going bald, beer-bellyis-
maximus, life-has-slipped-past-me-so-quickly,help!  The-sky-is-falling-looking dudes 
coming into this fantasy game to vent your frustrations?  Really, get off on the 
results you're trying to fish for--because trust me, losers, I can surely give it back 
to you witless mid-life crises monkeys! -- ME

Bashur -- I wasn't aware I was under some sort of "exam" to receive your praise.  
Reading your weekly rants really makes me want to puke.  Ha!  Real piece of work 
indeed. -- ME

Padre -- You spoke something "real" that time about the gang issue, but some people 
don't really fathom that sort of lifestyle, so shrug it off because one has to be in 
the struggle to know of the struggle. -- Me

Deeders -- You absolutely speak about nothing interesting.  I suggest you take Bill's 
advice and "grow up" some.  Man up, dude!  Yes, you're still AA, but I believe in 
change, one step at a time.  BTW, I'm a Donald Trump guy!  Far from Obama, trust me on 
that. -- Me

DD -- Actually, I have bad news to deliver to anyone who actually gives a crap. lol  
Xoden was slaughtered in the FTF.  So what I'll do is bring in two fighters, because I 
like this arena (not the people in it) and when they do the name-change-a-rama in Jan, 
I'll make ONE DEEP into FIVE DEEP!  I really look forward to killing some of you. -- 
Me

Last but not least, most of you knjow who I am. It's easy to recognize prestige when 
you see it. So for you that have no clue as to who I am, it is none other than Lord 
Scorpio himself!!  The Big Guy and future Champ of Niytyole. -- Scorpio

All who hated -- I might be dead, but if I get lucky to win that Dead man's tourney, 
I'll be back to seek vengeance. -- Ghost of Xoden Nightshield

Deeders; Denner -- ONE Inch is ready, so y'all share the one inch, since y'all imagine 
that so much; skeet, skeet, skeet! -- Scorpio, *handing the ladies a towel*  Bill!  
Call up Randy and get these ladies out of here!

One Inch -- Hahahahahaha, you held to a single hope, and that hope has died. You're 
done, you're gone, take your 4-7 record and go play with razor blades.  Next stop, 
Loserville for you! -- Den

Padre -- Let the records show that you had 3 losses last turn, one for every hair that 
grows from that enormous pimple under your eye.  Let the simple and uninformed also 
know that you once again challenged me and lost, and to a democrat to boot.  How dumb 
do you have to be to lose to a democrat?  Uhrhammer is not my favorite, but he is good 
enough to graduate from here as long as he can fight against dorks like you and 
Studcraft. -- Den

Darkfart Lord of Bacon Stripes -- Strange how all your little friends have left you 
alone, must feel like the playground in 4th grade all over again.  I love this place 
now that your nerdy friends are gone. -- Den

General Flasher -- Look at you getting all growed up and posting a 3-1 last turn, 
funny part is your single loss was to Deeders. I am conflicted, you are so close to 
taking the top team from Darkfart, but I hate you both so much that I don't know what 

to hope for. Is it too much to ask for you both to become violently ill and maybe 
permanently disabled somehow? That would bring great joy to me, perhaps I would even 
memorialize the 2 of you in a song or something like that. -- Den

Chief Justice Bill -- A very nice 3-0 last turn, as expected. Yes, I do remember the 
TP of which you speak.  One of the greatest to be sure, and the first warrior to ever 
kill Stone Golem let us not forget.  I am sure Filthy Phil will soon be holding the 
reins to that beast, for he just loves killing warriors of Deeders' ilk. -- Den

Filthy Phil -- Yet another title for you to boost. I assume you sent another challenge 
to Jarvis as Crambus feels there is more to be said on the sand between the two of 
them. You may smell, but you know how to score awards. --
Den

Marvel -- I marvel at your ignorance, your constant failures, and your ability to 
remain celibate. -- Den

Paladin -- Ouch! 0-4 last turn.  That truce was a silly idea wasn't it? Bet you wish 
you could reconsider now. -- Den

Studcraft -- What you felt last turn was just the beginning.  Your arrogance will be 
your ultimate undoing. What we have in store for you will make your cross country ride 
with Spirit seem like a magical vacation. -- Den

Venomous Concubine -- I think I might have been married to you.  You destroyed my 
perfect 5-0 last turn. Disgusting! -- Den

Deeders -- Old friend and comrade, you sit warriors in the Challenger Champs, but they 
are denied their shot at the title. Once I see you and Filthy embrace I will know that 
life does indeed hold miracles. Mayhap I will see it, mayhap I will not. -- Den

Crambus -- You going to let Bashur talk to you like that? -- Den

Gwyn -- I know why you have failed in your pursuit!  Aside from being a bad hunter you 
must learn to start small.  Baby steps.  Come back to me after you have successfully 
hunted a few clearings.  Perhaps even better to wait until you've conquered a valley 
or two. -- Dagger Dale

General Gasser -- You are nothing if not creative.  Well, you are nothing at any rate. 
-- Dameon Darkheart

Bill, I don't believe you will have much success with your Skeletor bounty without 
including the winning half of Niytyole in the hunt. By the way, did you just volunteer 
to be my minion?  I'd say I'm flattered but my mother told me it is wrong to lie! -- 
DD

Old age is threatening the AA like the IC never can or will. -- G. Bashur

Den -- Amusing words as always. I'm not usually a connoisseur of comedy, but your 
words have piqued my interest.  Perhaps there are some other authors I'd enjoy.  Not 
likely as much as you, but it is definitely worth investigating. -- Bashur
P.S. The greatest achievement in all Alastari?!?  I may have to frame that one...And 
just so the rest of you Niytyole managers are slacking in the personals because you're 
afraid of the comparison with Den's writing, don't worry.  We won't hold anyone to his 
standard.  I know.  For anyone else that writes, we'll compare you to Darkfart's 
writing!  Nothing like stacking the deck to get what you want! -- General Bashur

Deeders -- Last turn was full of entertainment.  Seeing a full team of your warriors 
in the dead ranks was more than enough to bring smiles to my face many times over the 
last couple weeks.  You won't listen and I probably shouldn't bother, but have you 
ever considered telling your warriors that you believe in them and that your every 

intention is that they should win immortality in addition to victory on the sands 
instead of constantly screaming to win or die from the stands?  The old honey is 
better than vinegar philosophy? -- Bashur

Padre -- Another fight that was truly enjoyable.  Part of me almost wanted Pro 1 to 
live (a small part) because I fear his loss would drive you from our sands.  And while 
you may not bring competition, I'd rather see you here than not!  Then again, if your 
participation is dependent on a single warrior, perhaps it'd be best to end it sooner 
rather than later. -- G. Bashur

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.
