                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Hardy har from the Bulldog Inn, I've had but a few but I have something to say
to YOU, Hanibal.  You Farkin Butwipe who sent me to the DA, all becuz of that one
weaknez, haha showed you and that one style you were truly worried about.  Nuff of
that where's me wenches, this is a party after all....

                                      SPY REPORT

     It is I, Novgorodny Vir, Spymaster of Spymasters.  Look on my work, ye mighty, 
and despair!  Nothing is certain in ARUAK CITY, with changing loyalties, changing 
Duelmasters.  Write this down:  new top team--BULLDOGS.  Good things come to those 
who fight well, as ANIMAL FARM can attest, moving up by 1.  Practice pays for CLARET 
CRAWDAD, who pummelled NASTY ELEMENTAL, to pocket 22 points.  Win some, lose some.  
Speaking of which, CLARET CRAWDAD was winsome, after beating NASTY ELEMENTAL and 
seeing him lose 19 points.  Like a flirtacious debutante, ARUAK CITY's Duelmaster 
EQUALIZER found himself the man of the hour, being "invited to dance" 4 times!  The 
arena was more crowded than usual this time, as MINUTE STEAK faced ARUAK CITY's 
Duelmaster.  What can be a greater victory?  MINUTE STEAK has taken his place as the 
top, as ARUAK CITY's new Duelmaster.  So who was the warrior seen charging into 
immovable walls and challenging dead trees?  Someone's got a basic problem...   
     My mother wished me to avoid conflict, and seek the gentle trade of Spyreporter. 
But warriors aren't supposed to avoid fights!  Perhaps the warriors of IMMORTALS 
should take up some hobbies, as they are the most avoided team...  The warriors of 
IMMORTALS found their efforts at combat frustrated as BULLDOGS apparently had more 
important things to do than fight.   
     Ah, the duel!  The roar of the oppenent, the smell of the crowd!  Citizens of 
ARUAK CITY, be sure to settle your debts with DRAYTON FLASHSTONE of IMMORTALS.  He's 
relocating to the Dark Arena and has other things on his mind!  Ask not for whom the 
sword slashes; it slashes for thee.   
     All good things must come to an end.  As the seasons change, and the creatures 
of the wild change also, so do I feel a yearning to leave this place.  Can anything 
compare to the pleasure of writing Spyreports for ARUAK CITY?  On that giddy note I 
take my leave-- Novgorodny Vir

Congratulations to our new Duelmaster, Equalizer of Cannibalz who bested Black Bee
for the throne.  Duelmasters drink free at The Bulldog Inn. -- Kennelworth,
Proprietor

And kudos to our old friend Lord Protector Drayton Flashstone of Immortals who is
heading to The Big Time.  Way to go, Dartor! -- Kennelworth and The Bulldogs

Cannibalz -- Great point gain!  You guys are good! -- Kennelworth

Drayton -- Well, now, you know I wouldn't throw a challenge at you if I were above
you.  Watch out!  I like to think I am good, but I am probably just a lucky old dog.
-- Hound

Drayton Flashstone -- Wow!  I won!  You really shouldn't have lost to me.  Wait until
the day comes and you get to see my numbers.  Oh, my.  But good luck to you at The
Isle.  I will always think of you as the better warrior. -- Minute Steak

Khalhum's Drawf?!  I like dwarves!  I can chew on anything. -- Udder

M. Chardinee -- I do not know what got into me, but I am truly sorry.  I did not mean
for you to die.  Mea Culpa. -- Hound

     They all say that.  Doesn't change what happened. -- M. Garfeld Chardinee

The Hitchhikers -- Keep up the great work, guys.  With that type of showing, you will
have us all gunnin' for you.  (wink) -- Kennelworth

Equalizer -- Champeen!  Gratters.  Aye. -- Mino, Animal Farm

Equalizer -- You proved you were the better warrior and deserved the title.  I salute
you. -- Black Bee

Pluck; pluck. -- Cherry Chicken (Soon to debut after The Mailer)

Nasty Elemental -- You were just plain too much of a warrior for this li'l
crustacean.  You win the stylemaster title.  Well done. -- Claret Crawdad

Arthur Dent -- The Arthur was okay, but did you have to put a dent in my beak? --
Purple Pelican (Still feeling woozy.)

Venomous Concubine -- I just loved rolling around in the mud with you, Honey.  (wink)
-- Purple Pig

Ahoy, ye, Drayton Flashstone.  This'n ole pirate done bea sad ta see ye go.  Luck at
ye, Champ.  Aye. -- Mino

Corvo Black -- Gold is the premier in taste, you know?  I just had to prove it to
you.  (chuckle) -- Golden Tongue, Proud Colorific

Purple Passion -- ANOTHER loss?!  You lavender lush!  What are you doing to my team?
A loss to a box followed by a loss to a dancer?  Perhaps it is time to eat you for
dinner, you loser! -- Purple People Eater, Proud Colorific Manager

     Maybe she's become a Mauve Melancholy?

Venomous Concubine -- Girls just wanna have fun, and I did. -- Red Head, Proud
Colorific

Zaphod B. -- You were easy. -- White Hair, Proud Colorific

Irvin Flete -- I like private, you hunk.  (wink) -- Red Head, Proud Colorific

Hey, Irvin Flete, I don't really get to play or manage.  My "dad" won't let me yet.
I'm just an old sort-of-ugly grey tabby alleycat who wandered starving for food to
his house, and now I am a pure inside cat.  His wife named me after her father,
Casper Irvin, and it, Irvin, stuck.  I like my "dad" and he likes me.  Everybody else
is okay, I guess, including that other rescued inside cat, a calico called Beatrice.
His daughter, who often chides our dad about Duelmasters AND me, saw me on his office
chair looking at his computer, and accused me of being a Duelmaster manager.  (I wish
I were.)  She gave me the title Swirvin' Irvin.  Hey, I have to go grab some chow and
then take a nap on the screened porch.  Maybe I will see you later. -- Swirvin' Irvin

A 13 wit and all I have is expert init and expert dec, and I get my invite.  No
wonder I struggled lately. -- Drayton

Hitchhikers -- Just to let you know, downchallenging is frowned upon in this arena.
I will keep my eye on you. -- Dartor

Crawdad -- I never expected to defeat someone of my style who has more experience.
Thanks. -- Nasty Elemental

Dogmeat -- You know, I knew a guy once who ate dogs.  Rirorni, of course, and they're
weird, but still... he should meet you. -- Irvin Flete

Marvin -- My momma told me not to pick up hitchhikers, and I didn't listen.  I should
have. -- Berlam Foote

Purple Passion -- It occurred to me that I should try meeting you in a Red Rage, and
it worked. -- Tirla Dancer
P.S.  And maybe next time, I could try a White Heat?  You never know.

Golden Tongue -- I shouldn't have listened. -- Corvo Black
P.S.  Now I have Black Despair.

Toby Bloodspike -- Hard luck for you, good for me.  That's the way luck should go,
too. -- Harline Flete

Cowlick -- Nah, maybe I'll get a dagger and shave it close. -- Berlam Foote

Our congratulations to Drayton Flashtone. -- Jorja and the Krill Cavalry

POSTED:  Arena recruitment effort, DM 32, Arvat -- seeing as our arena Participation
has dwindled in recent months, we're offering the following incentive to any new
teams looking for a new home arena.  We will GIVE a Free Rollup to any manager
willing to agree to fight in Arvat for the next 10 turns.  We have a number of VERY
solid arena teams stockpiled, and while we don't promise tournament godlings, we are
certain we can come up with teams with 3, 4 or even 5 solid arena warriors to start
out with.
     In addition we'll honor any no-challenge requests by relatively new managers to
help you get off on the right foot.
     If interested, please contact the Devil Advocates via Diplo or contact
theDarkOne via IM on the www DOT reality DOT com site.  We will even give a choice of
teams available if requested.

           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. (Lack of participant indication of
joining and/or lack of 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 will not be accepted.
               a.  No scores will be tabulated until an RSI Gift Certificate is
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 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
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!

This contest will begin in November 2010 following the Fall Mail In.
