     Perhaps you have not seen the rules for TW8, which has been posted in all
newsletters?  Here they are.

                                *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. The confirmation/verification must
occur after, or in the same newsletter, but not before, the participants 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 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 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:
                                   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 (live only) 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 status.
        3.  Tournament Champions (live only) 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 status.
        4.  Points awarded for tournament participation are 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, no more than two skills per
        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.

     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!.  We now have a new top team for all of you guys 
to dogpile on.  BULLDOGS now holds the crown and they are betting they can keep it.  
It was a tough week for IMMORTALS, to drop 4 places in the rankings.  Coming up with 
a solid 2-3-0 outing, KRILL CAVALRY has advanced 3 places in the rankings.  BULLDOGS 
is no joke as it posted a 4-0-0 week advancing from 2nd place to 1st place.  Call it 
luck at the right time or bribes in the right hands, but the new team NATURE'S 
REVENGE scored a 4-1-0 record this week.  Hey everybody, watch out for SYRA SHORTER, 
who flew up 19 points in the rankings after mashing NASTY ELEMENTAL like a melon.  
Keep your eye on this gal.  Ya know, some days it doesn't pay to walk out on the 
sands.  NASTY ELEMENTAL was subdued by SYRA SHORTER and drops 18 points.  COWABUNGA! 
got through to the Duelmaster this turn.  No doubt he was more than anxious to kick 
SLARTIBARTFAST's tail out of the throne!  It's a proud day for the BULLDOGS stable, 
as their warrior, COWABUNGA!, ascended the Duelmaster's throne.  4 out of 5 
gladiators surveyed protect the body, so try and avoid aiming at that location.   
     Here is other news that is of note.  Did you hear that IMMORTALS was most 
avoided team this week?  Well, knowing the personal hygiene of IMMORTALS' warriors, 
I'm not surprised!  For those of you who like math, try this one:  IMMORTALS + 
Weapons That go Boom = COLORIFIC + Avoid City.  Well dang howdy, but if challenges 
were votes, COWABUNGA! would be president.  Although it may be a contest he doesn't 
want to win.   
     Death is kind of like a new puppy:  he's always around wanting to play.  (Ha 
Zontani, how's that for a wise saying?).  For those of you who missed it, Death 
showed up, grabbed WILBERT FRUE by the ear and took him away to a place where he 
won't need a coat.  Proving again that ARUAK CITY is not rated G, THE GENESIS of the 
ILLMATIC slew the warrior CHARRO LAYNE in a rather bloody bout.  Let's look for a 
bloodfeud.  In the 'Oops, What Have I Done?' category, FENCHURCH was mashed by MAYDEE 
QUICK, who let FENCHURCH know that killing members of KRILL CAVALRY is a no-no.  
Congrats to FHAI'TUL for revenging the death of his teammate (but more importantly, 
feeding XIURHN a bit of dirt).  In the 'Oops, What Have I Done?' category, HILDA was 
mashed by NURGLING, who let HILDA know that killing members of CHAOS CARNIVAL is a 
no-no.  Here's some advice:  warriors with little wit and will may encounter problems 
on the trail to the Isle.   
     I think I had better cut this one short.  It's been nice chatting to those of 
you whom I have not offended yet.  Okay, so I may not be the world's best comedian, 
but then you guys aren't the world's best warriors.  See ya next time I'm on this 
circuit!-- The Unknown Spymaster

Shucks, Shyra, I had been on a roll.  And you "luckily beat me in 1 minute"?  Super
shuckins!  Shades of the hare! -- Tangerine Turtle

     It probably depends on the roll.  I like cinnamon rolls.

Benjy Mouse -- Well done.  You are my better.  You made me feel out of my element:
the crick. -- Claret Crawdad

Smimatsu -- Pay me!  I'll try to help you. (grin) -- Blue Bulldog (out prepping and
awaiting Philly)

Fenchurch -- Pink is the new "in."  Peach is out.  So are fenchurches. (giggle) --
Pink Porpoise

Ahoy, Bart, ye matey!  Champeen!  Yo ho ho 'n yon bottle 'o rum! -- Mino (Saluting
Duelmaster Slartibartfast.)

Slartibartfast, (Can I call you Slart?) -- Congratulations on your Duelmastership.
The Hitchikers must be proud of you.  Duelmasters drink free at The Bulldog Inn. --
Kennelworth, Proprietor

Gee, Milamber, I know it was Hound Dog's challenge; but did you have to kill him?
The poor old pooch was such a favorite.  He was a special friend to us Bulldog clan.
He was: 11-3-15-15-17-16-7 slasher, bonused damage Great Damage, Poor Endu.  We will
miss him. -- Kennelworth and The Bulldogs

Cowabunga!  I beat YOU, Kung-Fu Master?!  Well, hello!  Aren't you the master over my
style?  Gotta love them apples!  That one was for The Peanut Gallery. -- Cowabunga!

     What?  I thought it was apples here, not peanuts.

The Userous Merchant -- Did you get more for your money's worth in that one?  I got a
win, so I am quite happy. -- Purple Poodle

LL Cool P -- Another great column!  Sorry for your loss, and it wasn't to a bovine.
Go get 'em again next time. -- Kennelworth

Health.  Humility.  Honor.  The Heart And Soul Of Andoria is calling.  Win her some
TCs and TVs in Philadelphia. -- Kennelworth

Convicted Assassin -- You were easy.  Somewhere along the line you must have lost
your touch, Bozo. -- Silver Hair, Proud Colorific

     That's why he was convicted.

Jadow!  Again?!  You jerk!  You must be rich to be able to keep paying off The
Commission. -- Red-Eye, Proud Colorific

"Red-Eye -- I'm sure this earned a return challenge at some point. -- Jadow"  UP
YOURS! -- Red Eye, Proud Colorific

Face it, Red-Eye, you punk!  You are all washed up-- if you ever were worth anything!
Bum!  You don't deserve to be able to lick my boots, LOSER! -- Purple People Eater,
Proud Colorific Manager

Maydee Quick -- I challenged you because you weren't, and because I am your master.
Har, har, har. -- Green With Envy, Proud Colorific

Pair-O-Sevens -- That was MY challenge!  What were you doing winning?!  I send you
the single middle digit raised sign of international peace, you Jerk! -- Yellow
Belly, Proud Colorific Manager

Yellow Belly -- You belong with Red-Eye.  Neither of you are worth any effort.  Where
are those Dark Arena challenge forms? -- Purple People Eater, Proud Colorific Manager

All I can say, Colorifics is that your 2-2 SUCKED!  Bimbos! -- Purple People Eater,
Proud Colorific Manager

Sin Rowynstar and Olivio Galvarius -- It is a pleasure to welcome you to Aruak City,
The Heart And Soul of Andoria.  My good friend and Consortium-mate, Gamemaster, told
me you might show us here.  We are glad to see you.  Mino, the pirate manager of
Animal Farm, and also Consortium-affiliated, may not be so pleased to see you, since
one of yours defeated Tangerine Turtle.  But, I say, great job!  And welcome. --
Kennelworth, Bulldogs

Rowenstar -- Me matey, hain't bloody likin' ye hackin' me turtle, but methinks ye be
gud fer Aruak.  So, ahoy, mate. -- Mino, Animal Farm (Me critters, ceptin' fer
Tangerine, bea sayin' howdy ta ye.)

Rapscallions -- Death, death, and more death.  We regret your loss, and will
anticipate the bloodfeud with heavy hearts. -- Nurgle, Chaos Carnivalmaster

Hilda -- That hurt!  I had such high hopes for Ananke, who began with an advanced
expert initiative rating among other things.  But the show, and the obligatory
bloodfeud, must go on. -- Nurgle, Chaos Carnivalmaster

Wilbert Frue -- Excellent blows there at the end; I thought I had you!  Well won. --
Dark Jester

Leo Guardsman -- A closer fight than I could have hoped for.  Perhaps after some more
training I'll be able to finish it. I salute you. -- Nurgling

Slartibartfast -- Why didn't I use the Battleaxe?  She already had a date planned.
Next time, I won't make that mistake!  Congrats on the title. -- Paragon

Benjy Mouse -- I have a strange feeling we'll be matching up this turn.  I really
need another win.... -- Paragon

Gagged Runt -- I think I'm a little bit more of a runt than you.  Still, even though
I'm generally friendly to my fellow runts, had to take you down this time. --

MC Wittle -- Never again, I say.  No more fisticuffs for me. -- Arakasi

Kennelworth -- Apologies on the death of Hound Dog.  I just don't understand my own
strength.  Hope you get a good conscript in his place. -- Milamber

Red-eye -- Wanna go for 3 in a row?  I think I may have learned my favorite way to
fight... -- Jadow

Nurgle Chaos Carnivalmaster -- Easy come Aimers, easy go huh?  Such was the life of
our newby, Anna Thema.  May she rest in peace after having fairly matched with your
newby, Xiurhn. -- Noble Discord, mgr. Rapscallions

Xiurhn -- Rest in peace?!  Bah!  There be no rest for the wicked, and we no know
honor amongst the Rapscallion chater; be it a matter of face that our lot takes voted
advantage of a coming bloodfued. --Cheeky, chrun'chyn, Fhai'tul, and Villan
(gladiators of the Rapscallions stable)

To the Bulldogs and Mino -- Thanks.  Not only well deserved, but long awaited! --
Berlam Foote

Tangerine Turtle -- I don't see it.  What's the point of having fast wind? -- Wilbert

A Dog's Life -- And not a Good Dog, either.  Would it have been too much for me to go
out with a win, after more than two years in the arena?  Ah, well, at least I'm going
out alive! -- Berlam Foote

Dark Jester -- I had my funny-bone numbed before the fight, so you couldn't reach me
with your humor, dark OR light. -- Wilbert Frue

Green with Envy -- Ah, your envy will do you no good.  I have gender and thus a lot
of fun, and you do not. -- Maydee Quick
P.S.  Mere skills are useless in THAT arena.

Aniketos -- I saw at once that you are a vicious parody of me, so, of course, I
sudued you viciously.  Nothing personal. -- Charro Layne

Ah!  I *like* fighting Embezzling Scribes!  I could fight Embezzling Scribes all
year. -- Old Harold Anne, hoping for more
