                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

The transition from whaling to dueling has not been an easy one.  For one thing, the
targets are much smaller here.  In addition, when I first began, I was used to the
rolling sea beneath my feet, not this terra firma.  You would think this would be
easier, but it took some time to adjust.  Not only that, but I found that with a few
notable exceptions, my opponents here swung back much more than those gigantic beasts
on the high seas.  In the end, though, if you can drive a harpoon into tons of
blubber, you can drive your longsword through platemail.

It is nice to leave Talcama on a high note.  The throne will be up for grabs as I
flaunt my immortality by venturing into the Dark Arena.  Take care, fellow
gladiators. -- Shewish Whaler

Shewish Whaler is 11-5-19-15-19-4-11 LU good end/trem dam +4 Defense +3 Rip.  His
favorites were part good (Longsword) and part bad (mod/mod, rip learn, no tactic).
His closest brush with greatness was a 7-3 in the Apprentices tournament.  I have a
soft spot for decent warriors with large SZ, so I suspect I will run him for some
time to come.  Who knows, maybe he will make something of himself years from now when
he has gotten Unearthly damage. -- One Armed Bandit

                                      SPY REPORT

     It is I, Novgorodny Vir, Spymaster of Spymasters.  Look on my work, ye mighty, 
and despair!  He who laughs last didn't get the joke.  Speaking of laughing at jokes, 
observe RUN AND HYDE.  Last week they got 0-0-0 to drop by 4!  Like a new team 
fighting for the first time and entering the official rankings, GOON SQUAD got 2-1-0 
to come in 9th.  STREET PIZZA had cause to celebrate, after CANDIRU got 26 points by 
beating DECK APE.  Win some, lose some.  Speaking of which, CANDIRU was winsome, 
after beating DECK APE and seeing him lose 22 points.  Well, Duelmaster SHEWISH 
WHALER Dark Arena Challenged DARK ARENA's BLACK ORC.  Is a 21-11-0 good enough?  
Those who hoped for a new Duelmaster were disappointed by BLACK ORC, of DARK ARENA, 
who despite a 0-0-0 couldn't overcome TALCAMA's Number 1.  Word has it one team in 
TALCAMA is taking speech lessons to try to bore their opponent to death.  I'll bet it 
works.   
     So much to report, so little time!  Perhaps the warriors of CENTER FOR OLDS 
should take up some hobbies, as they are the most avoided team...  As a woman of good 
breeding scorns the "warriors" of FUNKY FOLK, so did that sorry team shy from CENTER 
FOR OLDS If challenges were horses, HOFFA could open up a fast food joint!  As a 
confidence booster, JB BLAH challenged HOFFA, down 27 points.  Do you also slay 
vicious rodents in your spare time, JB BLAH?  JB BLAH defeated HOFFA with a point 
difference of 27.  So this is what TALCAMA calls a duel.  This will make an 
interesting tale.  CHAOS SLAYER challenged SCATHING!  Who says THE GUARDIANS II are 
just a bunch of wimps!  CHAOS SLAYER of THE GUARDIANS II kept his wits as he subdued 
SCATHING.  My love of complete Spyreports dictates that I note the mismatched fight, 
FROO-FROO and DEMENTIA.  Are CENTER FOR OLDS unwilling to engage in a fair fight?  I 
thought FROO-FROO showed great skill and promise when she dealt death to  DEMENTIA.  
All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     Is there life after death?  Pragmatics (and warriors) know there is death after 
life!  Those who owe SHEWISH WHALER of SEA DOGS money and had written him off, take 
note:  he'S BACK FROM THE DARK ARENA!!!  AND he'S MAD!!!  You've heard about DEMENTIA 
of SKA ROBOT ARMY.  Death plays no favorites, and neither do I.  What was a 11-12-0 
doing on the fields in the first place?  PAPA ROTZI of FUNKY FOLK sends CATAPHASIA of 
SKA ROBOT ARMY goes to the Weary Warrior's Retirement Home.  TALCAMA has no place for 
weaklings!  Ask not for whom the sword slashes; it slashes for thee.   
     Leave me now, you base fools!  More important duties call me.  Like a mixed 
metaphor, and an overtaxed simile, I now bid TALCAMA farewell-- Novgorodny Vir

                            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.
