                             Notes from the arena champ.

Talcama...the city and arena are steeped in incredible history.  The boss told me to
be humble in my address of the citizens/warriors of this arena and city.  Said we
were just stopping by for a couple of cycles to prepare me for the next Grand Tourney
coming when the leaves change....  Preparation?!?!  I don't need any preparation...I
am ready for all comers.  Boss said we would run here full time with the rest of my
comrades after the tournament in the fall...to speak as should be required of ALL to
obtain the throne in any of the fine arenas throughout the land...but to say
little....

It appears that I am relatively inexperienced in the number of times that I have
appeared on the sands of Talcama compared to the may below me...so in that same vein
my two challenges are heading to the two active challenger champs with the least
amount of time on the sands as well...in no particular order Dick Tater and/or Papa
Rotzi will be the targets of my challenges.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of TALCAMA!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp 
Eyes, Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  Former top team HELP WANTED was 
unseated this week as CENTER FOR OLDS moved up from 5th ranking to take the top spot 
with a 4-1-0 record for the round.  There were bitter words at FUNKY FOLK's 
guildhouse after a 0-5-0 showing this week which dropped the stable into 10th.  Dark 
Arena anyone?  Warriors--remember that glory waits always around the corner!  Witness 
how this week SKA ROBOT ARMY went 3-2-0 to move up 5 in the rankings.  My praise to 
SEA DOGS for their 4-1-0 week this time out.  Indeed, it was a skillfully fought 
round deserving of notice!  SPARE ANCHOR caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial 
commission as he skillfully bested DICK TATER and was awarded 24 points in 
recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, RAT CATCHER put down LOWELL 
HALE, causing him to lose 16 points of recognition in the process.  Unwilling to wait 
upon the will of others, Duelmaster BLUE MOON challenged PAPA ROTZI last week in a 
match to decide the fate of the throne.  Although PAPA ROTZI made a valiant effort, 
it did not suffice to topple the reign of victorious BLUE MOON.  Informants "close" 
to the city champion have told me that he never fights without pantyhose on beneath 
his armor.  Watch out!   
     But come now, let us look deeper into the maze of contention and crossed blades 
that is city TALCAMA.  My inside sources tell me that the team to beat in TALCAMA 
these days is WIZARDGUARD.  At least, most blades in town are looking to avoid them.  
Apparently the stalwarts of HELP WANTED are catching the bulk of jests down at the 
challenging board for their large share of the avoids.  Mighty fighters cannot but 
expect competition from those below.  HOFFA take warning!  You have more than a few 
enemies in TALCAMA.  For some warriors honor is not important--only empty victory.  
See, gladiators, how JB BLAH of CENTER FOR OLDS challenged down 20 points to 
DEMENTIA.  The weight of the challenge fell hard upon DEMENTIA and predictably she 
was beat by JB BLAH.  This is how to arouse the anger of an entire guild!  FROO-FROO 
must really be harboring a grudge against the ARROGANCE guild!  Merciless, 24 
challenged down NULN points this week to duel with she.  Few would not have guessed 
the outcome of the bout as NULN was overcame by FROO-FROO.  Is this what passes for 
courage in TALCAMA?   
     What warrior does not hone his years, impatiently waiting for the moment of his 
foe's mortality?  This week's duel proved deadly to DORIO WHITING as he fell to the 
more renowned warrior, DIZZ SCHUIER.  How will LACONIANS find revenge?  Dark alleys 
may hide both secrets and assassins.  In the arena there is only the brightness of 
steel.  Keep vigil always!   
     A thought before I go.  Each warrior practices one style, but must not the wise 
manager learn the secrets of them all?  Ahh, but I can hear the spires of a far off 
city calling to me.  I must away!  Till next we meet remember - the pen is mightier 
than the sword, but a maul is a different story!-- Zontani Sharp Eyes

                                 *TURF WAR VI RULES*
                            Starting Nov 2008 (10 turns)

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 alliance and the Captain of the alliance in the North Fork
            (DM 47) newsletter.
        2.  Announcements made on the D2 Forums will not be accepted.

Captains are responsible for:
        1.  Verifying those who wish to participate under the banner of their
            alliance;
        2.  Distribution of prizes should their alliance win the Turf War.
        3.  Submit one (1) RSI Roll-Up Certificate to participate

Participating managers who are not Captains must:
        1.  Submit one (1) RSI Roll-Up Certificate to participate
        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 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;
        2.  Renaming of Dark Arena Monsters (one 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 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.

dealings during the course of the contest.  Their decisions will be final.  All
