                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

Well, this was unexpected.  When the boss told me to dust off my sword, I figured I'd
hang around the champs and challenger champs for a couple months, then quietly move
to the Isle.  Taking the throne really wasn't on the radar, and it just doesn't seem
right for someone from Silmarilliad to be here without the (long-gone) Texan around
to abuse.

Looks like it's either going to be me vs. Big Shrimp or I'll be fighting a stand-in. 
With any luck I'll be able to hold it a couple turns and then I can finally follow
the team captain Melkor to the Isle!  Ichabod says that he'll be running Glorfindal
and Morwen for a few turns, and then I guess we'll be out of your hair for a while.

Anyway, good luck to everyone in the tournament, and hopefully I'll be here to yammer
at y'all again next turn!

                                      SPY REPORT

     Thankyouthankyou.  It's great for me, The Unknown Spymaster to be back in 
RIZTAB.  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.  DREAMERS now holds the crown 
and they are betting they can keep it.  Advancing in the rankings was HIGH JINKS who 
went from last turn's 306-285-20, to this week's record of 310-286-20.  Hey 
everybody, watch out for DEMOCRITUS, who flew up 42 points in the rankings after 
mashing TIANNARY like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  And falling like a basher 
in the top ten was BIG SHRIMP, who dropped 15 points after a disappointing (to say 
the least) bout with GLORFINDAL.  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 BELEG CUTHALION moved his record to 15-7-0 by defeating PYTHAGORAS in 
the Duelmaster's Title Bout and gaining 10 recognition points.  Can you believe they 
are paying me 10 gold to deliver this stuff?   
     Here is other news that is of note.   
     Being a spy is great--other people die and you spend the rest of the day 
drinking to their memory.  Better tanked than dead!  Carrion Bird Cinematic Humor:  
TIANNARY II:  THE REMATCH.  Here's some advice:  warriors with little wit and will 
may encounter problems on the trail to the Isle.   
     Well, there's the manager of the RIZTAB giving me the 'cut' sign (or is that 
'They're going to strangle you in the alley?).  C'mon, Leadfoot, let's make some 
tracks.  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

Marlow -- I guess the maxim here is "Be careful what you ask for!"  I am not looking
forward to the rematches a couple years down the road. -- Beleg Strongbow

All -- Too Repulsive, even for the DA, and have you seen some of their prize-winners?
I'm practically an Adonis. -- Rogan
P.S.  Carlotta, Ahhhh...heat of the moment, mouthy, yer still first rate

Beleg Cuthalion -- Did I say "eye to eye?"  It seems I've seen the musculature of
that mustache somewhere before. -- Marlow

Corianelle -- Seems you get cuter by the contest.  Well, cuter by the contest when I
win.  Just let me lean on your shoulder and admire your style. -- Billy

Democritus -- Nice of you to cut in.  Good dancing partners are all the rage.  Dang!
Got my foot stepped on. -- Tiddles

Big Shrimp -- Hmm, if I'd realized the sauce was the key, I'd've polished you off
long since.  Very tasty, yes, very tasty indeed. -- Sweet Betsey

Pythagoras -- You've got too many angles for me.  I'll never figure it out. --
Tiannary, not a gemometrician

Heraclitus -- Drat.  If Betsey defeats you, I don't see why I can't.  She's just a
little pipsqueak. -- Tariliss

Billy -- Well (sigh), at least one of us comes out of this with a winning record.  I
guess that's something, though I'm not sure what. -- Corianelle

Hmm, never trust a runty Shewish money-changer.  They've got more tricks and a lot
more meanness than anybody else I can think of, except a Zukalite. -- Carlotta

Repulsive Rogan -- (smug look)  Yep. -- Carlotta

Short Peter -- As if! -- Tariliss

Martos Chard -- Whaaaat?!?  No *way* am I your secret admirer!  Let go!  Let go, I
say! -- Tiannary

Zagga the Claw -- Promises.  Bah. -- Corianelle

Repulsive Rogan -- You *fiend*! -- Tilkirrin the Elf

Carlotta -- Unreasonable woman!  You can't get rid of your debts that easily. -- Tio
the Moneychanger

Deapth Bomb -- You thought all standbys would be easy?  Think again. -- Hezash the
Mouth

17 July 2008
All -- Many of you know me and many more don't, but I will be scarce for a few
months.  I am relocating, so look for my presence online!  As my will, so mote it
be! -- Abraxis

               a.  No scores will be tabulated until a Gift Certificate is received.
                   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
                   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 from the Turf War (so be sure to take any
                   multiple teams OFF of Team Maintenance).
               d.  Scoring will NOT be retroactive for teams that do not properly
                   declare 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 scoring
                   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.

Scoring will be as follows for Fights:
                Win   Loss   Kill      Die
Challenge        +2     -2     +5       -5
Match Up         +1     -1     +1       -5
Bloodfeud        +2     -5     +5      -10
Champion         x2     x2     x2       x2
Dark Arena*     +10     -5     xx       xx
*After 2nd win, warrior scores no points for wins

Special Scoring Considerations for the Turf War are as follows:
Spy Report mention (team name only)              +2
Style Master                                     +2
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 be in the Adepts bracket or lower on the turn they are
         declared, and may NOT have gone above Adepts level at any time; this
         includes teams transferred into North Fork for the Turf War.

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 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 points.  This bonus will apply EACH time a
            warrior(s) win such status.
        4.  Points for TVs and TCs 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 seven (7) teams allowed per alliance for the
            Turf War.
        4.  The Dark Arena may be used on the first turn only, of every warrior,
            without penalty.

Prizes:
The Turf War is a "winner take all" contest.  All prizes and 100% of the Gift
Certificates will be awarded to the Captain of the winning alliance.  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.

The following prizes have been secured from RSI:
        1.  Renaming of the North Fork (DM 47) arena;

            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 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 manager who fights in all 10 rounds
            AND 45 fights of the Turf War.  Bonus potion must be applied to a living

These awards will be listed by the Moderator for claiming from RSI (Lee) within 4
turns of the end of TW VI.
