THE TURF WARS ARE COMING!
          THE TURF WARS ARE COMING!

     Gather your alliance-mates and friends.  Prepare your warriors and teams.  Turf
War NINE (TW9) is beginning the mid-Feb 2014 turn right after the winter Face in DM47
North Fork (currently MAMBOLAND).
     Alliances -- 2 to 4 teams
     Cost      -- two Rollup CERTS
     Prizes    -- certs, potions, honor & glory
     Length    -- 10 turns
     Moderators -- same old Oz and Master Darque

Rules, including details, are below.
.....................................................................................
                                 *TURF WAR 9 RULES*

Starting Mid-Feb 2014 (10 turns)
Bring acclaim and glory to the North Fork (DM47) arena.

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 Captain of the alliance in the North Fork (DM 47) newsletter.
     2.  Indicate in the newsletter which Captain/alliance you will join.
     3.  Announcements made on the D2 Forums or elsewhere will not be accepted.

Captains are responsible for:
     1.  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.)
     2.  Distribution of prizes should their alliance win the Turf War.
     3.  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:
     1.  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.)
     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 or Chatzy will not be accepted.
         a.  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.
         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 same or
subsequent newsletter by the alliance Captain they will represent.
         c.  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).
         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 3 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:
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, points are split 2/2, 1/1/1, 1/1/1/1, no points if 5+ tie)

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 wariors = 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
Tie breakers, in order, are: least losses, most total recognition points (if still
tied after that, 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 wariors = 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
Tie breakers, in order, are: least losses, most total recognition points if still
tied after that, no points awarded).

Champions:
     1.  A Champion may be declared, but one is not mandatory.
It is to the team's/alliance's advantage that you do so.
     2.  Only one Champion allowed per manager at any given time.
     3.  Champions that graduate or are killed by another warrior or 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.
     5.  A Champion can be declared on any round and point factors will begin that
same turn.  (Must meet above 4 conditions prior to declaring)

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 -10 points.)

Downchallenges:
     1.  A downchallenge occurs when a warrior challenges a warrior with lesser
recognition points.
     2.  No challenge or bloodfeud by The Duelmaster shall be deemed a downchallenge.
     3.  No challenge of the Duelmaster shall be deemed a downchallenge.
     4.  Bloodfeuds against warriors with lesser recognition are deemed
downchallenges.

Tournament Considerations:
     1.  Tournament participation is allowed and ENCOURAGED as a great form of
recognition for North Fork.
     2.  It is an opportunity to gain skills and preferred challenging within the
Turf War.

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 four (4) teams/managers allowed per alliance for
the Turf War VII. The minimum is two (2).
     4.  The Dark Arena may be used at any time without penalty.
     5.  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:
     1.  Renaming of the North Fork (DM 47) arena;
     2.  Renaming of all Dark Arena Monsters 
     3.  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).
     4.  +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.
     5.  +1 Skill bonus potion (one) for each and every individual manager who fights
in all 10 rounds AND 45 fights of the Turf War.  Bonus potion must be applied to a
living warrior from (DM 47) (Endu award)
     6. Two additional 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.

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
questions, comments, and scoring disputes to rebelnerfherder at yahoo dot com or
wfms101 at aol dot com.

Please note there have been rule changes from the last Turf War.  Please read them
carefully noting the following concepts/changes:
1. simpler scoring based primarily on wins and fight participation
2. DA is treated as simply another fight
3. Down-challenging is penalized
4. no emphasis/scoring on kills
5. 10 rounds

                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Well I made Duel Master a lot quicker than I expected.  Hopefully I can hold
onto it until I graduate.
     Guess that bloodfeud backfired on you a little huh Gnaeus Magnus?  It also looks
like you helped me find my faorite weapon.  "Double dukes!"  You and your teammates
can continue to try to avenge Cotia Mortis & hopefully join him in Ahringol!

Your humble Duel Master,
2012

                                      SPY REPORT

     Thankyouthankyou.  It's great for me, The Unknown Spymaster to be back in 
KOLACT.  Hope you enjoy the show.  Oh, who am I kidding?  I already got paid!  We now 
have a new top team for all of you guys to dogpile on.  THIRSTY THUGS now holds the 
crown and they are betting they can keep it.  It was a tough week for ANTHROPOS 
KRATOS, to drop 4 places in the rankings.  Coming up with a solid 3-0-0 outing, 
VIKINGS has advanced 3 places in the rankings.  It looks like the guys(?) at THIRSTY 
THUGS had a good week as they went 3-1-0 to put them in 1st place.  I guess steroids 
help!  Hey everybody, watch out for HREIDMAR THE RED, who flew up 23 points in the 
rankings after mashing HAMMER like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  Ya know, 
some days it doesn't pay to walk out on the sands.  BUELLER was bested by DAGG 
AXELJORG and drops 17 points.  In front of all the crowds, SLITHERING IDIOT took the 
Duelmaster's crown for its own.  I give the bum two weeks.  An apple a day keeps the 
doctor away, but an onion a day keeps T.P.s at bay.   
     Here is other news that is of note.  Here's a song for you:  Who's afraid of the 
big, bad ABOMINATION?  Big bad ABOMINATION.  Big bad ABOMINATION.  KOLACT's afraid of 
the big bad ABOMINATION.  Tra la la la la!  For those of you who like math, try this 
one:  ABOMINATION + Weapons That go Boom = THE MENTORS + Avoid City.  Well dang 
howdy, but if challenges were votes, YOUNG HOV would be president.  Although it may 
be a contest he doesn't want to win.  Was it guts or an overtaxed mental capacity 
that had DROCK challenge up 26 points in the rankings to take on COUNT BLYTHE?  This 
week DROCK 6-9-2 fought COUNT BLYTHE 11-6-0 and in losing gained 4 points.  I know 
several gladiators who could go for a few fights like that.  In a touching display by 
a 'touched' warrior, BETTY WHITE went after ALLY YEAR MONEY, who was higher by 18 
points.  Well, when the dust settled, BETTY WHITE was overcame by ALLY YEAR MONEY.   
     Death is kind of like a new puppy:  he's always around wanting to play.  (Ha 
Zontani, how's that for a wise saying?).  Knowing when to use the right tactics at 
the proper time is a very important step on the road to Duelmaster.   
     I think I had better cut this one short.  It's been nice chatting to those of 
you whom I have not offended yet.  Well, there goes another Spy Report.  Good luck in 
next week's fights.  Its been real, and its been fun, but it hasn't been real 
fun...-- The Unknown Spymaster
