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

                                      SPY REPORT

     It is I, Novgorodny Vir, Spymaster of Spymasters.  Look on my work, ye mighty, 
and despair!  BLUE STEEL?  Who?  CHAOS CARNIVAL is the top team these days, buddies!  
THE VULGARIANS after a sorry 0-0-0 might want to consider abandoning the sands and 
taking up singing the 'Can't fight no more' blues!  THE HITCHHIKERS had cause to 
celebrate, after HUMMA KAVULA got 22 points by beating MARAG.  D'ENDRRAH certainly 
had a baffled expression on hers face, after losing to BLUE BLOOD and losing 13 
points in the process!  KONANN CEE found out that ARUAK CITY isn't a democracy.  
You've gotta be the best to be Duelmaster here!  Word has it one team in ARUAK CITY 
is taking speech lessons to try to bore their opponent to death.  I'll bet it works.  
     A Zenmaster once told me, 'Does not the spinning wheel turn?  And do not the 
little birds cry out?'  Any ideas?  Perhaps the warriors of THE VULGARIANS should 
take up some hobbies, as they are the most avoided team...  As a woman of good 
breeding scorns the "warriors" of BLUE STEEL, so did that sorry team shy from THE 
VULGARIANS Is it charming personality?  Conversational abilities?  Good oral hygiene? 
Whatever it is, SMARG DARKBLADE is the most challenged warrior.   
     The moving sword slashes, and having slashed, moves on...  Ask not a spymaster 
for counsel, for he will pontificate long after you have fallen into an unconscious 
stupor.   
     Do not think spyreporting in ARUAK CITY is the highlight of my life.  As if 
buffeted by forces of nature beyond my control, I must take my leave of this place.  
Can anything compare to the pleasure of writing Spyreports for ARUAK CITY?  On that 
giddy note I take my leave-- Novgorodny Vir

All -- 3-1?  ONLY 3-1?  Who is the slacker in this mighty Colorific group I have
assembled?  Perhaps it is time he is mustered to the night fights?  The cretin! --
Purple People Eater, Proud Colorific Manager

Anneal -- I think you are on a streak!  A grey streak.  Har, har. -- Grey Streak,
Proud Colorific

Ace High -- You are nothing but a plodding tortoise that doesn't even make the
motions to try to beat the hare.  I just love turtle soup! -- Green Snot, Proud
Colorific

Karghust -- I had fun pulling yours one by one.  Yowser! -- Gold Tooth, Proud
Colorific

Mediocretaur -- Now you are in for it!  You got me in trouble with my boss by
cheating!  I will kill you! -- Blue Blood, Proud Colorific

Mordraith -- You are nothing but a pile of chicken droppings!  Let's call a spade a
spade.  You are taking your warriors and hiding because you are scared of my
Colorifics.  Coward!  Go tell your momma she's calling you. -- Purple People Eater,
Proud Colorific Manager

Mino -- I do believe your critters smell like a stable and seem to be fighting like
stable dung too.  I think it is wonderful! -- Purple People Eater, Proud Colorific
Manager

A salute to Honey Boo Boo, Duelmistress of The Heart And Soul Of Andoria.
Duelmasters drink free at The Bulldog Inn.  (Underage customers receive our very best
Shirley Temple.) -- Kennelworth, Proprietor
P.S.  What an entry to the throne!

And to "editor," or whomever added that unsigned notation, all Duelmaster Title
Winners receive a "tab" in the Bulldog Inn ledger, and they can collect whenever they
want.  Many are traveling or visiting The Isle, and may come back years later to
collect.  (Most want their freebies and more right away!) -- Kennelworth, Proprietor

Uncle Nurgle -- Congrats on your very first Lord Protector.  It is a great day in the
Chaos Carnival guild house.  And it was a great try at the DA!  Immortality is
wonderful, isn't it? -- Kennelworth, Bulldogs

Sprinkles -- Thanks for the challenge and easy win.  I prefer mustard on my dog and
sprinkles on my cake. (wink) -- Hot Dog

Hziuxxxxxxxxx -- I enjoyed everything about that match except having to write your
name. -- Doggy Bag, feeling proud and full

Konnann Cee -- A salute to your talent.  I feel like an old, banged-up dog after
that. -- Purple Poodle

Blackjack?!  You killed Dawg?!  What were you doing fighting him anyway with that
massive experience advantage?  That just wasn't plain nice.  Dawg had his
imperfections as a 15-13-9-17-9-10-11 hosed damage (normal) but bonused initiative
basher.  Apparently he could neither bash his way out of a paper bag, nor draw
anything except "busted" at the blackjack table.  We Bulldogs will miss him. --
Kennelworth

Health.  Humility.  Honor.  Aruak City awaits. -- Kennelworth

Honey Boo Boo -- A Duelmaster Column is needed and there will be a curse on your
manager's golf game if one is not written.  Beware! -- Kennelworth

Yo ho ho!  Blimey, mates!  Yer lusty li'l Boo Boo bea champeen?!  Aye! -- Mino

Klang -- It was simply my day to bray. -- Lemon Lamb

Nobody You Know -- Oh yes I do know you, and you can be a really hurtful gladiator.
I am avoiding! -- Claret Crawdad

Grey Streak -- All I can say is that your shields are hard to get past!  Good fight!
-- Annael

Lord Foxworth -- Thanks for the learns! -- Radion

Black Gold -- Finally I goot a win!  You goot an expert too!  That's ah win-win. --
Marag

Cat Underwater -- You dropped like a rock!  That doesn't bring our friend back, but
it sure feels good. -- Eglin

Current Top Team!  I'm very proud of them all with their 4-1 record.  Even our new
guy shows a lot of potential with his first win.  But they all need to dig in since
this seems to be a dangerous place to fight lately. -- Trim, mgr. of Blue Steel
