                     ANNOUNCING TURF WAR VIII; DM47; JULY 2012

     Don't miss the premier event in all Alastari!  Gather an alliance.  (2 to 4
managers).  Select a captain.  Send in your entry fee(certs).  Prepare your warriors.
The competition, the acclaim, and the prizes await.
     The Turf War is expected to bring ten or more teams to battle.  The competition
is fierce.  Only one Alliance can win TW8.  Will it be yours?

                                 *TURF WAR 8 RULES*

                          Starting July 30 2012 (12 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)
        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 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:
                                   Win   Loss   Kill      Die
Challenge (up or within same class) +2     -2     +5       -5
Down Challenge "Challenger"         -2     -2     -5       -5
Down Challenge "Challenged"         +2      0     +5       -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***                                        -3
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,
    ** Champions double applies to his score only -- not to opponent.
    *** 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.)
Points awarded for team tournament participation are 1 for 1 entrant, 3 for 2
entrants, 6 for 3 entrants, 10 for 4 entrants, and 15 for 5 entrants.  A TV scores 7
points or a TC scores 15 points.  Death in a tournament results in a -3 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:
Full Team:                                        +1
      1. A team which fights 4+ warriors (Includes DAing) gets a point
Full Alliance                                     +1
2. An alliance were ALL teams get a Full Team point earns a point
Full Team/Alliance scores 
      3. Will double for the last half (6 rounds) of TW8.
Style Master:                                     +2
      1. No matter how many stylemasters, an individual team can score only +2 per
Duelmaster:                                       +2
      1. Duelmaster points shall be earned separate of stylemaster points.

     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.
     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)

        1.  Bloodfeuds will score points on all four (4) turns.
        2.  There is no limit to which warrior may bloodfeud or how often.
        3.  To score as a bloodfeud, then feud/death must have occurred totally
within the TW8.  (E.g. Feuds created prior to TW8 will not be deemed or scored as a
bloodfeud, but rather as a challenge or downchallenge.

        1.  A downchallenge occurs when a warrior challenges a warrior in a lower
class.  (Lower class is defined as lower than the identical class.  (E.g. A
challenger champion class challenging a champion class is a down challenge.)
        2.  In TW8 a standard challenge is up (in recognition points), parallel or
within the identical class but lower recognition.
        3.  No challenge by The Duelmaster shall be deemed a downchallenge.  (This
rule supersedes all other downchallenge rules.)

Tournament Considerations:
        1.  Tournament participation is allowed and ENCOURAGED as a great form of
recognition for North Fork.
        2.  Tournament Victors won during the course of the contest will gain a one
(1) time bonus of 7 points.  This bonus will apply EACH time a warrior(s) wins such
        3.  Tournament Champions won during the course of the contest will gain a one
(1) time bonus of 15 points.  This bonus will apply EACH time a warrior(s) win such
        4.  Points awarded for tournament participation are 1 for 1 entrant, 3 for 2
entrants, 6 for 3 entrants, 10 for 4 entrants, and 15 for 5 entrants.  A TV scores 7
points additional or a TC scores 15 points additional.  Death in a tournament results
in an additional -3 score.
        5.  Points for entrants, TVs, 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 300, points will be credited on North Fork
turn 301 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 four (4) teams/managers allowed per alliance
for the Turf War VII.  The minimum is two (2).
        4.  The Dark Arena may be used on the first FE turn (e.g. no arena or
tournament fights) only, of every warrior, 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.

The Turf War is meant to be a "winner takes all" contest.  However, for TW8, a prize
(RU cert) 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
this 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, and two additional for the captain of the alliance).
        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.
        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)
        6. Two additional rollup certs for each manager of the winning alliance from
     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.

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

This contest will begin in late July 2012 following the Summer FTF.

                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Oh, my!  This is precarious!  What am I doing all the way up here on top of
Aruak City?!  Now everyone will be after me and some will even want to kill me.  Oh,
my!  I am just a simple warrior way in over his head.  Oh, my.
     Oh, no; it isn't that I am not honored to be Duelmaster.  Certainly not!  I love
the honor and am proud of the accomplishment.  To be pronounced the best in Aruak
City?  Wow!  Hey, and I get free drinks at The Bulldog Inn.  (Be it known to those
Assembly guys that I am sticking with the ale.  Yup.)
     It is simply that I am here by a whole lot of luck and am not sure I have the
skill or experience of the many challengers in Aruak City.  I will try my best.  I
     As always, we Bulldogs like to provide some tidbits in our DM Columns, so here
are two sets of offerings from me.
     The current set of Bulldogs are sized at 9,12,14,15,16.  So why aren't you all
beating them more regularly?
     I sneaked a peak at Kennelworth's diary the other day and found out the
Favorite color - yellow
Favorite author - W. E. B. Griffin
Favorite passtimes - games, golf, gardening, and grandkids
Best golf score ever - 83
Favorite food - meat loaf
Favorite Snack - Tell City Pretzels
Favorite Movie - Hoosiers
Alma Maters - Cannelton High School Bulldogs and U Of Evansville Purple Aces
     Enough of that.  I am here.  Challenge me.  Please don't kill me!
          A Dog's Life, Duelmaster I

                                      SPY REPORT

     So why do I have this bag over my head?  Because I am The Unknown Spymaster and 
I'm going to give you a spy report!.  Say good-bye to THE HITCHHIKERS, as they are 
pushed from the coveted top team spot by the BULLDOGS stable.  Coming up with a solid 
4-1-0 outing, BULLDOGS has advanced 5 places in the rankings.  Hey everybody, watch 
out for MAYDEE QUICK, who flew up 22 points in the rankings after mashing ALABASTER 
AUK like a melon.  Keep your eye on this gal.  Ya know, some days it doesn't pay to 
walk out on the sands.  SMIMATSU was subdued by SILVER HAIR and drops 19 points.  
What does the Duelmaster and Piltdown Man have in common?  They are both the most 
challenged apes in human history!  Heyheyhey!  Well, everybody's pal A DOG'S LIFE 
moved his record to 10-1-2 by defeating PARAGON in the Duelmaster's Title Bout and 
gaining 6 recognition points.  4 out of 5 gladiators surveyed protect the body, so 
try and avoid aiming at that location.   
     Let's dig a little deeper into what's happening in the ARUAK CITY arena.  And 
hey, kiddies, those of you who didn't avoid THE ASSEMBLY, please raise you hand.  
Wow.  Does ARUAK CITY really have that many liars?  Okay, so I may not be funny, but 
catch BULLDOGS' act in the arena.  Those acrobats seem to be fairly deft at running 
from THE ASSEMBLY.  Well, it looks like COWABUNGA! wasn't happy with last turn's 
rank, so he went for broke by challenging up 29 points.  No guts, no glory.  Trading 
many whacks on the head and a loss for 3 recognition points, COWABUNGA! shows that a 
guy doesn't have to be good to get places.  In a mismatch, our friend VILLAN of 
RAPSCALLIONS got heroic notions and challenged TANGERINE TURTLE.  What did it get 
him?  A 2-1-1 record, that's what.  I don't know about you, but when I saw VILLAN 
step out on the sands with TANGERINE TURTLE, I though it was over before it started.  
Good upset VILLAN!   
     Death is kind of like a new puppy:  he's always around wanting to play.  (Ha 
Zontani, how's that for a wise saying?).  Yes, and another newbie bites the dust as 
ALABASTER AUK goes down under the sword of MAYDEE QUICK.  Thanks to this, MAYDEE 
QUICK now has 51 recognition points.  Congrats to BINKLE for revenging the death of 
his teammate (but more importantly, feeding GREEN WITH ENVY a bit of dirt).  Knowing 
when to use the right tactics at the proper time is a very important step on the road 
to Duelmaster.   
     Well, there's the manager of the ARUAK CITY giving me the 'cut' sign (or is that 
'They're going to strangle you in the alley?).  Okay, so I may not be the world's 
best comedian, but then you guys aren't the world's best warriors.  Its been fun, and 
I'm sure you enjoyed it (boos).  Now that I've got you worked up for Snide Clemens, 
I'll be leaving-- The Unknown Spymaster

Congratulations to our own A Dog's Life, upset Duelmaster of Aruak City.  Duelmasters
drink free at The Bulldog Inn. -- Kennelworth, Proprietor

Smimatsu -- We loved your DM Column!  Sorry about your drink.  You should go with the
ale as the bartender isn't so good with those pansy-type drinks.  (wink) --
P.S.  You heard it here in Aruak City.  The whiffle is making a comeback-- per The
Assembly clan.

Greetings to all the new teams.  We welcome you to Aruak City, The Heart And Soul Of
Andoria.  I hope your stay is long and prosperous. -- Kennelworth, Bulldog Manager
and Proprietor of The Bulldog Inn

All, shucks!  Be it known that Purple Poodle was improperly named by The Commission.
It was a surprise to me, but since it is in reasonable keeping with the BULL--DOG
theme, I will just learn to enjoy it. -- Kennelworth, Bulldogs
P.S.  Mino is threatening to sue for utilizing his alliterated color/animal theme.

Kung Fu Master -- I am stoked with that win!  You, an aimer, were the odds-on
favorite, but thoughts of The Peanut Gallery pulled me through to the win.  Yes! --

Dark Jester -- I salute your enduring talent.  You were too much for me. -- Purple
Poodle (crying, but heading to the stylist for a shampoo and haircut)

Slartibartfast -- I was so lucky to earn that win.  When I saw my random match up, I
thought I had another loss being tagged on my record.  Lucky, lucky, lucky!  I like
lucky. -- Woof Woof

Joker's Wild -- I, for one, was very sad to see Jinkle die.  That was highly
inappropriate of Green Envy and The Colorific.  They sometimes have no heart.  May he
fight well in That Great Arena In The Sky.  (And may your new recruit be a beaut!) --
Kennelworth, Bulldogs

Tapik -- I salute you as my better.  Well done. -- Cowlick (feeling kinda low)

Smimatsu -- I am just plain dumbfounded and proud! -- A Dog's Life

Health.  Humility.  Honor.  Aruak City, The Heart And Soul Of Andoria, awaits. --

Jinkle -- Well, THAT was not expected!  A kill!  The win, kill, and success keeps
that mad manager, Purple People Eater, from threatening to eat me though.  So I will
just be proud. -- Green With Envy, Proud Colorific

Oski Noble -- The pleasure was all mine.  I hope that you enjoyed the loss. -- Gray 
Area, Proud Colorific

Dangerous Criminal -- Hah!  Dangerous?!  Perhaps you have simply lost your touch?  I
must admit I thought you more hilarious than dangerous. -- Silver Hair, Proud

Tickle Me Tiger -- You cheated!  That was MY challenge.  You bum! -- Yellow Belly,
Proud Colorific

Yes!  Killed that Dark Champion of The Dark Arena!  Yes!  That'll show you, Purple
People Eater!  Don't you ever send me to The DA again or I will be comin' after YOU!
I eat your kind for breakfast! -- Red Eye, Proud Colorific (and apparently quite
angry with his manager)

Colorifics!  Now THAT'S what I'm talking about!  4-1-2!  Well done!  Beat that, Mino,
you ugly pirate!  Look who has the best w/l persentage now!  Colorifics! -- Purple
People Eater, Proud Colorific Manager

Yellow Belly -- You suck! Our Colorific record would have been perfect, if not for
you and your obviously stupid challenge.  Dunce! -- Purple People Eater, Proud
Colorific Manager

Nay, Kennelworth, this'n ole pirate nay bea suin'.  Me critters bea likin' ye's
copyn' name.  Aye.  Kin we hav 'er? -- Mino, Animal Farm
P.S.  'Sides, me gots me Blue Bulldog. Aye.

5 Aces -- I knew that if I could get you wet, I could win.  I am not so good on the
card table. -- Pink Porpoise

Georgie Boy -- You were there and I decided to try.  I have not been the best warrior
of late.  Too slow, I guess.  I need all the wins I can get. -- Tangerine Turtle

Franklin -- I am sorry to make your day blue, but I really, really need to win and
climb the charts for Mino.  Luck at you henceforth. -- Blue Bulldog

Jadow -- Congrats!  You were too much for me in the arena, just like you were at The
Tournament.  I salute my better. -- Alabaster Auk (getting her wings bandaged once

Avast ye, A Dog's Life!  Gratters on yon champeenship!  Aye. -- Mino and The Animal
Farm critters

Tiny Meerkat -- I figured this would come down to who was faster... think I may be a
hair quicker on the draw... -- Paragon

Alabaster Auk -- F.E. Bowl keeps telling me that just because I "can" fight as well
with either hand doesn't mean I "should" start hitting people with my shield! --

A Dog's Life -- I wasn't expecting this matchup!  My blockers didn't do a very good
job.  Good fight, and congrats on the Duelmaster's title! -- Smimatsu

Cowlick -- Once again we meet.  You owe me the after-fight beer this time. -- Tapik

Gag Halfrunt -- Is your name hal-frunt?  Or Half-Runt?  I don't know... what I do
know is I'm not sure how effective punching either plate armor or weapons are as a
general strategy. -- Esterbrook

Aruak City -- Well, no more DM columns for you from Smimatsu!  No, really, I mean it.
You can stop your snickering now.  I blame my wife for the loss, she didn't take that
Battle Axe comment very well and proceeded to make me sleep outside.  A Dog's Life,
maybe you can give me some pointers on how to live in the Dog house.  And really,
Aruak City?  You think I should lose 42 recognition points?  Shame on you, Aruak
City! -- Smimatsu (former 2 turn DM, #1 in your hearts)

Benjy Mouse -- Damn, a brutal mouse.  Just what I don't need. -- Berlam Foote
P.S.  Hey, would YOU want mouse holes in your socks?

Blue's Clues -- Hmm, when it came to that fight, I didn't have a clue. -- Maydee

Winny -- Meant to be a lucky name, as in "win-y, one who wins"?  It worked. --
Wilbert Frue

Tangerine Turtle -- I was actually hoping for a navel orange. -- Georgie Boy
P.S.  Or, if I can get away to the coast for a holiday, a naval orange.

Binkle -- You're a great guy!  Me with the only win on the team, this is good stuff.
Let me buy you a taco. -- Charro Layne
