                        Reflections on Bonsur Babes Rock(ed)
                                   by Hammer the
                                     WordSmith

     "This almost seems to be a waste of time and energy!" mused the veteran manager
Hammer from an outpost of seclusion Far BeYond the Realms of ElseWhere and ElseWhen.
He had long ago misplaced his parchments for analyzing arena warriors and tracking
their progress.  "What a waste of time!" his thoughts echoed through the corridors of
his mind as he dispatched a registration for the new replacement for his Bonsur Arena
stable.
     Eron Vampira Babe was aptly named for someone the veteran manager was reminded
of from a time he had been in communication with during his long months of travel and
seclusion from the arena sands.
     Sexy Selena Rocks was the only bright moment that shone upon his Bonsur Babes
Rock stable during their Bonsur Arena debut.
     Bonsur Bunny Babe had the misfortune of a style matchup, but she did manage to
stay away from the infirmary.
     Not so with Tubby Babe Martha!  Her cries of pain from the infirmary were eerily
poignant of the futile showing of his Bonsur stable!
     Bonsur Babe Rocks was seriously "Rocked" by her opponent, as was the entire
stable, with the exception of Sexy Selena Rocks!
     Hammer had authorized the return of his stable to Bonsur to keep a promise to
his friend Nomad, but the veteran manager was not too excited about the prospects of
these ditzy ladies dancing on the Bonsur Arena sands.  He was not even interested in
entering any of his warriors from any of his numerous other inactive and scattered
stables for the upcoming Florida Facer!
     Hammer had emerged from his unexplained exile from the arena sands to return to
the remnants of the Madness of his Home Arena in Morya... because ...

                        Something Evil was Brooding Unseen!

                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     I didn't think I was going to get a chance to write a column this time around
because the boss is off travelling around parts unknown.  He said something about the
"birthplace of gladiators," so I assume he means Mordant, but who knows with a Nomad?
Do they call the arena in Mordant the "Colosseum" anyway?
     Travels aside, I was informed that I could not allow the return of the Rockin'
Babes to go unnoticed.  So the welcome mat is out.  "Welcome!" I guess.  It didn't
seem like a big deal to me, although we could use the competition,  but then Nomad
mentioned that their manager had once written an article on Rippers on another site
that got him started with the style.  Well, if you know me, you can see why that
caught my attention.  I'm sort of a fan of the style and am quite glad that my
manager has learned a few things about the style, from whoever might offer it!
     So, with the "welcome backs!" aside, I shall now return to my training and allow
the readers of this newsletter to return to the cleverly written spyreport.

-- Cajetan the Ripper,
          Duelmaster of Bonsur

                                      SPY REPORT

     Welcome BONSUR.  I, Olaf Modeen remember this place well.  Many the fights have 
I fought here.  The celebrations, the disappointments...  What's with PAM?  He 
actually beat BEACH BABES' REDONDO RHONDA, and walked away with 18 more points from 
the fight.  Laughs were big at REAVERS while they watched HARPOON clobber BLAGO THE 
AXE.  He lost 7 points and got bruised from objects thrown from the stands.  I'm sure 
BONSUR is excited about SUZIE, the new Duelmaster from CHURCH LADIES.  (remember?)  
But when you've seen as many as I have...  I suppose you want to hear some rumors and 
dirty gossip about your fellow fighters?  Tough!   
     No matter the time or place, men will always duel.  BONSUR thinks CHURCH LADIES 
and their 108-102-13 is too much!  If at first you don't succeed, give up...  The 
bums at REAVERS couldn't face the challenges from CHURCH LADIES!  No excuse for that! 
How well I know the feeling of being the most challenged warrior, BONSUR BUNNY BABE!  
Don't make idle boasts, they may come back to haunt you.   
     Warriors of BONSUR unite.  You have only your games to lose!  We all knew it had 
to happen sooner or later.  A warrior can't stick around with a 9-10-1, and BARILOCHE 
easily took care of SEXY SALENA ROCKS.  How long have I been here?  I got people to 
see, places to go...   
     Who knows what the future holds for a warrior.  More fights, there's no doubt.  
All work and no play makes Olaf a dull fighter.  Work and play no fighter dull Olaf.  
Olaffighterwork and no play.  Remember--a good fighter needs both good skills and 
good luck.  Until next time,-- Olaf Modeen

Hammer -- Welcome back to Bonsur. -- Chase (mgr. of Reavers)
P.S.  Nomad, thanks for inviting them back too.

Mary Ann -- What's up with trying to kill me twice???  I thought these were supposed
to be friendly matches. -- Harpoon

     You always hurt the ones you love?

Bonsur Bunny Babe -- I knew it was over when your fine butt hit the ground.  Come on
back, I'll be glad to spank it again. -- Gateway

Orsinius -- You wouldn't wake up disoriented if you would drink coffee instead of
smash. -- Kona Kate

gladiators, or maybe some of these managers, just go on and on. -- Luau Lila

I fought Elvisnith, late of Mordant, also known as the Mordant Deserter, which was
fine as far as that went.  Topped out our five and oh turn, made Jorja happy, all
that stuff.  But... he insisted on singing.  Something about blue suede shoes.... --
Redondo Rhonda
P.S.  Hey, I know he sang it WELL, allowing for the way I whacked him, but I didn't
want to HEAR it, okay?

Harpoon -- Into the life of every gladiator some blood must fall. -- Queenie

Bariloche -- That works for me, but why go out?  We've got a back room at the cabana.
-- Lila

Fork newsletter. 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 in the newsletter
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
(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).
               d.  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.
               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. (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:
                                   Win   Loss   Kill      Die
Up Challenge                        +2     -2     +5       -5
Down Challenge                       0     -2      0       -5
Match Up                            +1     -1     +1       -5
Bloodfeud Challenge (Up or Down)    +2     -5     +5      -10
Champion **                         x2     x2     x2       x2
Dark Arena*                        +10     -5     xx       xx
Tournament Death***                                        -5
Halfway (6 round total) best alliance win/loss percentage ****
Final (12 round total) alliance w/l% percentage ****
    *After 2nd win in DA, warrior scores no additional points for wins,
    ** A Champion's double score applies to his score only -- not to the opponent.
    *** No warrior may be substituted without the proper use of the DA or arena death
or death in a tournament. There must be a maximum of five only on a team at any point
and time. (The penalty for such substitution is -10 points.) Points awarded for
tournament participation are 5 for any entrant, 15 for a TV and 25 for a TC. Death in
a tournament negates any tournament points gained and results in a-5 score.
    ***** Halfway points scored are 25, 20, 15, 10, 5, 5, 5 (etc) for 1st, 2nd, 3rd
(etc). (to qualify for any of these points the alliance must have fought 75% of its
possible fights.) Final 12 Round points scored are 40, 30, 20, 15, 10, 5, 5, 5 (etc)
for the 1st, 2nd, 3rd (etc). (to qualify for any of these points the alliance must
have fought 75% of its possible fights.)

Special Scoring Considerations for the Turf War are as follows:
Spy Report mention (team name only)              +2 
     1. No matter how many mentions or stylemasters, an individual team can score
only +2 in each category per round
Style Master                                     +2
      1. No matter how many mentions or stylemasters, an individual team can score
only +2 in each category per round
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 have fought at least one previous fight in the North Fork
(DM47 arena) to be able to be declared a champion. 

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 15 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 25 points.  This bonus will apply EACH time a warrior(s) win
such status.
        4.  Points awarded for tournament participation are 5 for any entrant, (15
total for a TV and 25 total for a TC.) However, death in a tournament will result in
a -5 score for that tournament. (If a warrior TV's and is subsequently killed in a
tournament the points scored are -5 for that tournament.)
        5.  Points for TVs and TCs and tournament deaths 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 five (5) teams allowed per alliance for the
Turf War VII.
        4.  The Dark Arena may be used on the first turn only, of every warrior,
without penalty.

Prizes:
The Turf War is normally a "winner take all" contest.  However, for TWVII, a prize
will be awarded each of the twelve turns to the individual team/manager that fights
five fights and has the best w/l record that turn. (Tiebreakers are in order - kills,
recognition points earned.) All prizes 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, except for
the twelve reserved for the individual winning manager each week.)
     The following prizes have been secured from RSI:
        1.  Renaming of the North Fork (DM 47) arena;
        2.  Renaming of all Dark Arena Monsters (two for each manager in the winning
alliance);
        3.  Known Favorites for one 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).
        4.  +1 Skill bonus potion for each manager on the winning alliance.  Bonus
potion must be applied to a living warrior from (DM 47)
        5.  +1 Skill bonus potion (one) for each and every individual manager who
fights in all 12 rounds AND 54 fights of the Turf War.  Bonus potion must be applied
to a living warrior from (DM 47)
     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.

Moderators:
The Moderators for this event will be Oz and Master Darque.  They will arbitrate all
dealings during the course of the contest.  Their decisions will be final.  All
questions, comments, and scoring disputes may be directed to Land of Oz or Darque
Forces via diplo in DM 47.  Managers with internet access may send a private message
to [The Consortium] or [Darque] on the Duel2 Forums.  Lastly, you may also email
