                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Nya-nya nya-nya NYAAA-nya... I'm still the Duelmaster and none of you guys can
beat me. Seriously... you guys... why even try.
    "Sweetie, would you and your little friends like a snack?"
     "MOM, I'm doin' my Duelmaster's column."
     "But, snoopiekins, you know how you get cranky when you're hungry.  Besides, I
made powdered donut and pancake surprise."
     (pause)  "Well what are you waiting for, bring it in here."
     No kitty... this is my snack... THAT'S A BAD KITTY!
     I like it when the powdered sugar and maple syrup mix together.  Now where was
I... oh yeah... YOU ALL WILL RESPECT MY AUTHORITY!
     I'm probably not gonna be around for much longer, people have been talkin' about
me and the buzz on the street is that I'm gonna get called up to the Big League.
That's fine, I'm sick of that jerk Deep Thought trying to tell me what to do, he's
not my Dad.
     Actually, there's a chance I could be... it's between me and the Denver Broncos.
     Shut up, this is my column, go write a personal ad.
     Alright, that's about it, I only have one thing left to say:
     Screw you guys... I'm going home.
                                           Eric Cartman, Duelmaster

                                      SPY REPORT

     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!.  Hey everybody, watch out for COOKING LITE, who 
flew up 35 points in the rankings after mashing DR. RUTH like a melon.  Keep your eye 
on this guy.  Ya know, some days it doesn't pay to walk out on the sands.  VICTORIA'S 
SECRET was bested by HAIR IN SINK and drops 13 points.  Going for the gusto and 
coming up with aught but bloody knuckles was THE MAGNIFICENT MAGS' THE ENQUIRER, who 
was turned away from the Duelmastership by ERIC CARTMAN.  Advice to bashers--never 
force anything, just get a bigger halberd!   
     But enough of that bunch, let's get on to the wimps who like to avoid battle!  
Did you hear that STREET WALKERS was most avoided team this week?  Well, knowing the 
personal hygiene of STREET WALKERS' warriors, I'm not surprised!  For those of you 
who like math, try this one:  STREET WALKERS + Weapons That go Boom = BASH BRO 
HOUSEMATE + Avoid City.  Well just about everybody wants a piece of DESERT PLANTS, 
who was this week's most challenged warrior.  Was it guts or an overtaxed mental 
capacity that had MILK IS OUT challenge up 29 points in the rankings to take on MINI 
ME?  I heard MILK IS OUT laughed all the way to the inn as his new point total of 100 
was posted in the arena.  I guess beating MINI ME really pays!   
     Remember that an arena is not always a safe place to be, but it is one of the 
most interesting, though!  This round goes to THE MAGNIFICENT MAGS, their 12-3-2 
warrior, COOKING LITE slew the 12-7-0 DR. RUTH.  Stay tuned next week to see what 
happens.  Proving again that ZUWAYZA is not rated G, AMBITIOUS GUARD of the ZUWAYZA 
slew the warrior CHANCE in a rather bloody bout.  Let's look for a bloodfeud.  On a 
sad note, DR. RUTH found an early retirement at the hands of COOKING LITE this week.  
I wonder what CUNNING RUNTS will be doing about it?  Ask not the elves for counsel, 
for they will say both yes and no.  Silly buggers, eh?   
     Well, that wasn't too bad; Alarond told me that the people in ZUWAYZA have no 
sense of humor.  Or maybe that they were senseless.  C'mon, Leadfoot, let's make some 
tracks.  See ya next time I'm on this circuit!-- The Unknown Spymaster

Mini Me -- 2-0 in your favor.  You're making me look as bad as milk left out
overnight.  But I'm not that bad (the milk is, though). -- Milk is Out

The Enquirer -- Sniffle, cry.  I can't reach your newest edition and I'm very sad.
You'd think a 6'10" giant like me would never have issues reaching anything, but this
turn, I can't reach.  I'll miss you! -- Did Not Flush

The Boot -- Nothing personal.  Needed a confidence booster and Assur had me working
the weights this week, so no need to challenge for skills.  The weight training paid
off as did the confidence boost of giving YOU the boot. -- Hair in Sink

Jorja -- I hope your ideas continue to flow.  For whatever reason, your ads here are
second to none!  Keep it up, enjoying them thoroughly!  I'll do my best to keep The
Enquirer alive, since you blamed him for your spark... -- Assur

Did Not Flush -- Bash Bro Seeks Enlightenment!  Startling Disclosures!  Story on page
three! -- The Enquirer

Eric Cartman -- Eat greasy junk food, then.  See if I care. -- Cooking Lite

Free Parking -- But a fee to get out of the lot.  We have to make money somehow. --
Desert Plants

To make the Persistent Beggar disappear was not difficult. -- Magic Today

I shall make the Persistent Beggar reappear by using him as a canvas.  Body painting,
you know. -- Art of the World

                                 *TURF WAR VII RULES*
                            Starting Nov 2010 (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)
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. (Lack of participant indication of
joining and/or lack of 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 newsletter
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
(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 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. (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
Up Challenge                        +2     -2     +5       -5
Down Challenge                       0     -2      0       -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***                                        -5
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,
    ** A Champion's double score applies to his score only -- not to the opponent.
    *** No warrior may be substituted without the proper use of the DA or arena death
or death in a tournament. 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
tournament participation are 5 for any entrant, 15 for a TV and 25 for a TC. Death in
a tournament negates any tournament points gained and results in a-5 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:
Spy Report mention (team name only)              +2 
     1. No matter how many mentions or stylemasters, an individual team can score
only +2 in each category per round
Style Master                                     +2
      1. No matter how many mentions or stylemasters, an individual team can score
only +2 in each category per round
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 have fought at least one previous fight in the North Fork
(DM47 arena) to be able to be declared a champion. 

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 15 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 25 points.  This bonus will apply EACH time a warrior(s) win
such status.
        4.  Points awarded for tournament participation are 5 for any entrant, (15
total for a TV and 25 total for a TC.) However, death in a tournament will result in
a -5 score for that tournament. (If a warrior TV's and is subsequently killed in a
tournament the points scored are -5 for that tournament.)
        5.  Points for TVs and 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 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 five (5) teams allowed per alliance for the
Turf War VII.
        4.  The Dark Arena may be used on the first turn only, of every warrior,
without penalty.

Prizes:
The Turf War is normally a "winner take all" contest.  However, for TWVII, a prize
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 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);
        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
DM47 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 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)
     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

Please note there have been rule changes from the last Turf War.  Please read them
carefully!

This contest will begin in November 2010 following the Fall Mail In.
