                             Notes from the arena champ.

     This "Dope Boy Fresh" appears to be a fool.  He's certainly a easy win.

                                  Long Beach Lila

P.S.  I hope somebody feeds you so many limes you turn green.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, BONSUR?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  AMEN! turned their 3-2-1 turn into a 3rd 
place rank in the listings this turn.  Any better than this, and you get put on hit 
lists.  Now let's all watch CHURCH LADIES' heads swell from their 3-1-0 this turn.  
Haa ha ha ha!  Big shots, big talk, big deal.  Of course, we're all terribly 
impressed to see CHIOS win a fight and gain 21 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, LORD T. 
JEEBUS beat PAM and PAM lost 12 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  Looks like BONSUR 
has some guts at least, LONG BEACH LILA the Duelmaster was this turn's 
most-challenged warrior.  OLIANDER challenged BONSUR's Duelmaster for a shot at the 
throne.  And it's out with the old, in with the new, as OLIANDER 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.  What's the big D?  BONSUR BABES ROCK was the most 
avoided team?  Bunch of lily livered... grumble... mumble... curse...  And who led 
the way in this mass act of cowardice?  Let's see, well, whatcha know?  It was AMEN!. 
Ha ha ha ha!   
     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.  Whoa!  I'll even buy SWEET CHRISTMAS a 
drink tonight!  Anyone who can come back from the Dark Arena, I want to be on his 
good side!  We're all going to die in the end, so why worry if the fate catches up 
with you sooner that later?   
     There's got to be a better place in BONSUR to get a drink than The Swinging 
Aardvark!  Any suggestions?  Phlllt!  Just had to do that before I leave the fine 
city of BONSUR.  I feel much better now.  I see the crowds are getting restless, I 
must leave now-- Snide Clemens

Utaku Kamoko -- It's been a long time since we had a gladiator beginning with U, this
may have given you an edge.  Not that I grudge, I'm too cold to waste energy on
grudges!  I just wish you hadn't called the thunder HERE, because it's been totally
the pits with rain and lightning and power flickers and COLD.  We had to turn the
furnace on! -- Rose o' the Reef, laboring under a feeling of ill usage
P.S.  But at least we have a furnace to turn on, so it isn't all bad.

Erasmus -- Aloha, old friend.  My thanks for the splendid skills.  I'm not sure--no
ever seems SURE about graduation--but that rating may have done the trick.  I don't
know whether you're going to the Isle?  I've heard it's crowded there and the weather
is nothing to write home about.  So, I'm going to stay home and keep busy around the
cabana.  At the very least, my thanks for your company at that splendid party. --
N'Orleans Nora

Neanderthal -- Can you BELIEVE those arena scribes?  "She finds out she doesn't like
hospitals."  This is NEWS?  I've known I didn't like hospitals for at least two
years.  Probably longer, because I probably didn't like them before I became a
gladiator, either.  You know how it goes:  they smell strange, people boss you
around, just about everyone is really sick and some are dying right and left, and
they totally empty your pockets of cash before they let you out.  Who COULD like
them? -- Pensacolita

Lord T. Jeebus -- You know, that's EXACTLY what I said when I saw who I was matched
with. -- Palmetta Patty

Neanderthal -- A choice and an art.  Keeping it simple isn't always easy. -- Nora

Chios -- Any time.  It's what we do. -- Pensacolita
P.S.  Besides making smash.  Very apple-y at this season, our smash, as the tree in
front of the cabana has chosen to fruit bountifully.  But apples are good for us,
right?  Keep us out of hospitals and all.

Pam -- I am impressed with your endurance.   Actually, with the whole fight.  It was
a good match with a great outcome! -- Epee

Pensacolita -- Yes, perhaps you do need some smash.  I know I do.   It was an
interesting match. -- Neanderthal

Sexy Salena -- Stick around lady, the guys in the stands love a sexy gladiator.  And
I like a good opponent that gives me a win. -- Chios

Nora -- How ironic that you get your invite after a fight in which I defeat you!  I
believe that was my second win against you.  I have lost count of the losses.
Congratulations on your honor from the entire Sentinels squad--it is well deserved.
A solidly winning record with no challenges and avoids is an accomplishment worthy of
a smashing celebration! -- Lord Protector Erasmus and guild

9 August 2008
All -- We are currently looking for capable manager that will give the Desolate
Empire Alliance a full roster for the Turf War.  We currently have four (4) roster
slots that are open to capable managers without questionable morals.  If interested
for the Turf War, contact:  Lamar Treas-Wilson, Dok Sik, Dok Sik Killas DM 47

        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
Challenge        +2     -2     +5       -5
Match Up         +1     -1     +1       -5
Bloodfeud        +2     -5     +5      -10
Champion         x2     x2     x2       x2
Dark Arena*     +10     -5     xx       xx
*After 2nd win, warrior scores no points for wins

Special Scoring Considerations for the Turf War are as follows:
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

            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

            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
contest for the non-Certificate prizes.

                                  Name-Change-O-Rama

     The summer tourney brought a lot of people to the Isle who didn't appear there 
normally.  This included Commission employees.  Half a dozen arenamasters regarded 
each other warily in the mirror behind the bar at the Pig in a Haystack.  The Pig was 
obscure and mediocre, drawing few gladiators, which is what they had all been looking 
for.  They saw gladiators every day.  Most arenamaster were convinced that this was 
some kind of punishment.
     You could always pick out the arenamasters in a crowd.  There were superficial 
differences:  One of these had clearly Adantri features, one wore an eye-patch, two 
were female.  But there were, in significant ways, alike.  The same size, the same 
hair-trigger alertness, the same deadliness.
     The one-eyed man broke the ice, raising his beer mug in salute.  "I'm Zrof One-
Eye from Zukal.  Sugar of Arvat--"  One of the women bowed slightly.  "I know Sugar.  
The rest of you...?"
     The Adantri matched his salute.  "Dernal of Dayla Kiv."
     "Daiyla Kiv?  Ah...."
     "No, without the 'I' in it.  These damned bureaucrats can't spell, and they 
thought adding an unnecessary vowel was exotic."  Disgust dripped from his voice.
     "Tell me about it!" another man growled in agreement.  "Khagal of Niatoli, and 
what they do to the spelling of THAT simple word--!"
     "I thought Daiyla, I mean Dayla Kiv had a different name right now," 
Arenamistress Sugar said.  "The arena, at least, because of a contest?"
     "Chavez Ravine."  Dernal's tone was the one that substituted in polite company 
for spitting on the floor.
     Zrof blinked, taken aback by the bitterness.  He wouldn't have minded a contest 
in Zukal, and damn what they called the place.  "It's only temporary, though."
     "Temporary, shmiperary," another man muttered.  He seemed well into his drinking, 
although, like all arenamasters, he carried his liquor well.  "They do it all the time 
in Aradi.  No reshpect.  Go around changing thish, changing that.  I wish I could 
change shome thingsh."  He signalled the bartender for a refill.
     The second woman put her hand over his mug.  "You've had enough, Harkon.  Try the 
coffee, instead."
     "You should be mad, too, Ripplesh," Harkon said.  "They're going to do shtuff 
like that in Jahnsh, aren't they?"
     Ripples Dorrigan shrugged.  All the men paused, some with glasses half raised, to 
watch.  "It's the way things are," she said.  "Not much we can do about it."
     "You know," Khagal of Niatoli said, "maybe we could make a few changes.  Fix the 
spelling of Arena 33, for one, change a few standby titles--"
     "The Commission hates changes."  Dernal of Dayla Kiv topped up his glass and 
drained it gloomily.
     "Yes, but if we disguise it," Sugar of Arvat said, excited, "make it... maybe a 
general Name-Change-O-Rama!  Then we could slip OUR changes through and no one would 
notice or mind."
