                             Notes from the arena champ.

Here I am for a third turn.  M Chardinee wasn't much of a challenge.  The standings
below me haven't really changed.  I wonder if the Wizard's Wrath will be here.  Now I
know how Bombette felt when she was here.  Here's hoping for a fourth.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, in KALTOS a quiet thief gets rich, but a quiet spymaster gets poor.  
So bring me ale and harken to my tidbits of news.  It seems the training can make the 
difference, as IMAGE is pushed out of top team by THE MIDDLE WAY 5, who came from 2nd 
with a 5-0-0 this turn.  And let's see, JAMMY LARKE fought TINY TOES and gained 20 
points and contributed to THE MIDDLE WAY 5's 5-0-0.  TINY TOES has lost to JAMMY 
LARKE, falling 19 points, while helping make PAPER MARIO a 1-2-0 turn.  And not 
without some honor, GERDIG IBBINS now claims the title and throne of Duelmaster of 
KALTOS.  Tell me, is nothing sacred?  I have heard from unimpeachable sources that 
The Victory Tavern uses trolls in their stew.  Talk about gristle!   
     I tell you, a green quarterstaff lasts longer than a seasoned sapling.  A basher 
friend of mine assures me this is true.  I also notice that the IMAGE stable was the 
most avoided team this turn.  Come on KALTOS, what are you afraid of?  And guess who 
avoided IMAGE stable the most?  Believe it or not, it was CASSEY'S CREW.  Anyone 
surprised?  The most challenged warrior this turn was THE MIDDLE WAY 5's warrior 
KATIRONA MURH.  More fighters challenged her than challenged the Duelmaster!   
     The Dark Arena is for those who cannot win, not who cannot lose with grace.  
Dignity in life or death is the warrior's creed.  A brave warrior does not carry a 
red shield, he has nothing to cover or hide when the fight is over.  Consider well.   
     Thought for the day, a new sword shines bright, but the notched sword sings the 
sweetest.  It's been nice chatting with you, until we meet again, keep your swords 
sharp and your hammers heavy.  Until the sun next rises and my pen sets to paper-- 
Alarond the Scribe

Gee, maybe Shy Guy isn't so shy after all.  Sorry about that, Mordant Deserter. --
Luigi, Paper Marios

Barbra Amarilla -- All right!  I'll take that to even my record.  I suspect we shall
meet again. -- Goombario

Jammy Larke -- I guess I lucked my way through that one.  Salute. -- Slinky

Gerdig -- I wasn't so sure I could make that happen.  I want to move to the top. --
Tiny Toes

Felissa -- Miming?  Hmmm.  Maybe.  I have trouble keeping my mouth shut some times.
-- Goombario

Well, now, that was a spiffy little turn for us Paper Marios at 51 points.  Can we
keep it going, guys? -- Luigi

Katirona Murh -- Try out Gen-13 this turn. -- Violater

Pendru Rost -- My breath does not offend you. -- Savage Dragon

Tiny Toes -- Hmm.  Devastate me if you must, this is, after all, gladiation, but if
you show up with a ukulele, I'm out of here.  Never could stand the things. -- Gerdig
Ibbins

Slinky -- It was that ringy, clinky sound that did me in.  Darned if I know why.
Probably some kind of prenatal influence.  At least, that's my story, and I'm
sticking to it.  Er.  Good fight. -- Jammy Larke
P.S.  But the way you just sort of...spilled down the tiers of the arena to make your
entrance was frankly spooky.  Don't do that again, okay?

Spawn -- (embarrassed look)  I got carried away.  Your name was the unfortunate
trigger, I have an abhorrence of things that are spawned in dark places.  Probably
Freudian, but who knows?  Or cares, really.  I mean, I would have defeated you
anyway, I was up for it, but I wouldn't have been savage if you'd been named, oh,
George or something. -- Katiriona Murh

Savage Dragon -- Ah.  "Narrowly defeated."  Is that an improvement?  It feels like it
might be one. -- Felissa Hurm
P.S.  If the Commission thinks that fight was unpopular with the fans, it should ask
what *I* felt about it!  Major unpopularity, you know?

When they say that I "handily defeated" the Convicted Thief, what they mean is, I cut
his hand off.  That's the established punishment for theft, isn't it? -- Pendru Rost

Violator -- Oh, there's a comment to make a woman's heart go pit-a-pat.  Maybe I
will, but then again, maybe you'll get the sharp end of that stick. -- Katirona Murh

Savage Dragon -- I wouldn't know, I've never had a chance to try one. -- Felissa Hurm

Sasha -- I don't know why the crowd was pleased at the outcome of our fight.  I would
have made a good duelmaster, given the chance. -- M. Tolovi Chardinee

Pendru Rost -- Beast!  What had I done to deserve that of you?  Who gave you that
authority?  Do you know how much it costs to have a hand re-attached?  I'll have to
go out and rob somebody, and it's against my religion. -- Lewis Jones, the Black
Sheep of the Famous Jones Brothers, non-robber of banks
P.S.  You'll probably hear from my brothers, who take a darker view of the whole
thing.

Shy Guy -- Huh, it's going to be one of *those* weeks, isn't it?  I can tell. --
Rovalo d'Kormachi, formerly of Mordant
P.S.  Who paid you for my life?  Who *wants* it that much, besides me?

Gerdig Ibbins -- I'm sure, but that is not my decision. -- Arenamaster Troktai

Jammy Larke -- Anyone can benefit from broadening their understanding of the martial
arts. -- Master Fu Toledo, Expert of Esoteric Martial Arts

                            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

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

            (warrior must be ranked Initiate or above, must be alive, and must have
