                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Greetings, Sunset.  It is your Duelmistress, Terra Sigillata.  And, yes,
absolutely it was sweet to get our first throne on a bloodfued.  Especially the way
Weasel has been looking.  Thanks, by the way, for going with the Commission's
recommendations, Weasel.
     Disease got my challenge this turn.  If Bill finally guesses right on the
strategy, I should be pretty tough to knock off of this seat.  Good luck to the rest
of the Challenger Champs, but I'm hoping I can cruise on to be The Red Blades' first
graduate as well in short order.

Blades up, Sunset!

T.S.

                                      SPY REPORT

     I was going on vacation, see?  Surf, sun...  But what do those bums say?  "Hit 
the road, Debby Tonte.  SUNSET needs a spyreport."  Oh, well.  Uncool, OMINOUS REIGN. 
I mean 1-4-0 is bad.  Will they will be allowed to fight?  I say use 'em for training 
practice!  The guys at DARK AT HEART like really pulled together to get a 3-2-2 this 
turn, moving up by 6.  What was the name of that team who got 5-0-0 this turn for a 
total 648-953-22 you ask?  (Sure)  SWORD OPERA's their name, and fighting's their 
game!  MVP award for SELIA DOVE?  SWORD OPERA's proud of her after beating GRAVEN 
WARD and getting 21 points.  Talk about yer big time losers!  ZOLDIVAR got smashed by 
JESICKA, and lost 14 points!  Oh, wow, like the Duelmaster must be the most popular 
gal in all SUNSET.  She got the most challenges.  (But what about proposals?) Like, 
MILLHAUSER must be pretty gutsy!  He challenged the Duelmaster from THE RED BLADES.  
Does this guy have a death wish or what!  Was that a tear I saw in MILLHAUSER's eye, 
as he took over Duelmastership?  And wasn't TERRA SIGILLATA fit to be tied!  Is the 
Duelmaster really being a real snob to his teammates?  Don't ask me!   
     Look, you guys stick to fighting, all right?  GRIM FANDANGO was SUNSET's most 
avoided team.  Is there some award for that?  I don't know what REPTILE RAMPAGE's 
been doing.  They certainly haven't been accepting many fights from GRIM FANDANGO, 
that's fer sher.  Speaking of challenging 31 points above did you hear about TERRE 
HAUTE of TRIAL & ERROR vs. OMINOUS REIGN's ANGEL?  (And how was that intro!) Like, 
was that some fighting on TERRE HAUTE's part, or what?  And it got 24 points out of 
it!  (besides getting in my report)  Poor ANGEL.  I'm not so sure BULLFROG knew all 
the facts when he challenged GANGOL of GREDAN.  I saw BULLFROG stumbling and 
dribbling at Baba Yaga's Bar and Grill last week...  BULLFROG lost to GANGOL, but he 
got 1 points.  GANGOL won, and got 3 points.  I don't get it.   
     Man, all these warriors dying and killing each other!  Don't you guys ever give 
it a break?  I was SO depressed when I heard THE DRILL got killed.  He was just a 
kid, and didn't get a fair chance in SUNSET, or anything!  Hey you guys, don't you 
think your families would like to hear from you?  Write!  (Or have someone write for 
you.)  
     Remember, blood on a purple robe may stain.  Soak it in cold water, and hand 
wash.  I'm getting tired of writing this stuff, so I'm calling it quits.  Remember 
you guys, ease up sometimes!  Chill out!  Later, Debby Tonte

Opehlia Delphi -- Did you opehlia my sword upside your head... slathered with a
little deep fried batter of course for good measure! -- Fritersatafatfarm

Agamamnon -- I think you should file chapter eleven. -- Too Big To Fail

Updike -- Thanks for the win, but you need to do better in the teaching department.
-- Row Dayo Drive

Sacrificius -- I'd like to see you again in a few turns, my friend. -- Hambone

Falkirk -- That's how we likem'. -- Cannibal Animal

Poca -- Those avoids are working wonders for ya, my friend ;-)  -- Deviation

Blakskul -- I think you're going to get away with murder. -- Ghost of Chocolate
Thunder

Kallia May -- You know I am a kind warlord when I'm not drunk.  Here are a few gold
coins for your services. -- Agamemnon
P.S.  My first daughter left me.  But you can be my second if you want.

Too Big To Fail -- I grow tired of your challenging me.  If you want to pad your
record so much, do it with someone else.  Otherwise, I have friends in very high
places that can pad their record on you. -- Agamemnon

To the one complaining about the lungers:  Just be glad that we aren't in DM81.  90%
of that arena is total parries.

All -- If that Nomad wierd-o is going to be an insolent little punk, then he needs to
be treated like one.  Who I send out to fight and who I send into DA is none of his
or anyone's filthy business.  Tell the dimwit it's wholly apparent that the Nomad way
of down-challenging for wins speaks volumes about his limited capabilities and
inflated record.  Let's face it, he's just a dirty skumbag that deserves a spanking.
He has been and will remain our primary target. -- Kano-san

Looks like my ads missed last turn.  Ahh well, here's Weasel: 11-13-6-15-17-5-17 and
got the dagger which he used last turn and low, very low.  Thanks for the grats and
grats to the winder and smurf. -- Archelf

Blak -- I wasn't expecting you, but turtling up nice, hehe. -- Angel

Terra -- Grats on the throne.  Good fight; I almost had you and then, wow, nasty. --
Weasel the Protector (funny)

Selia -- Hehehehe.  Weasel is my cousin.. -- Wild

Virile -- That all ya got, hehe. -- Wild

Graven Ward -- I hope you graduate soon. -- Ice

Jaryul -- Crunch eww well better luck next time. -- Time

Angel -- It was worth a try.  I'm like a timex, ain't I?? -- Blakskul

Master Kush -- And a skill, even!  Bonus!  I'll leave you alone, now.  I said I, not
WE... -- Rezurekt

Salamander -- Wow, you are...interesting... -- Little Fang

Wall-E -- You were just what the doctor ordered for my break-in duel! -- Like Water

DM Terra S. -- Congrats on the throne and the successful feudage at last.  We salute
you! -- Grim Fandango
P.S.  Try to keep your dance card open...

Ben -- Thanks for dishing the goods on Grandaddy.  I figured he was somewhere close
to that, but thought maybe more speed, less CN.  Congrats on the graduation! -- Stik

Kano -- Ahh...strategy.  Perhaps that is what Walli was talking about when he
challenged Miramoto Jun?  Perhaps MJ will also be held out in fear?  Yes, "run and
hide" is certainly a strategy you are familiar with. -- Nomad and Tribe

Miramoto -- You can thank your BF dodging teammate for that one. -- Walli Weeble

Yuedebahl -- We shall see who the crappiest basher in this arena really is!  Get your
boxing gloves out! -- Bul

Borges -- It worked!  Most of my challenges recently have benefitted those I
challenged. -- Sasquatch

Darkness -- There are some things I am good at.  Not many, but a few, and that match
is exactly what I like.  -- Bul

Ice -- At least the loss got that stupid rap song out of my head.  "Ice, Ice..." --
Graven Ward

Cannibal Animal -- Intersting name, but it doesn't seem to explain why you attacked
me!  I am not an animal and thus should not have been on your menu... -- Falkirk

     What, you're a golem?

Yuedebahl Litha -- I had this Star Trek flashback thing goin and I kind of got into
the whole Cpt Kirk role a little too much with that ferocious FOREARM amash thing. --
CPT Kirk, I mean LP Grandaddy Smurf (RET)

Wild -- "7-13...duh" he says, "Can't be very good," he says... yeah, right!!!  I
think I will let Gentleben fight you himself next time. -- Virile Man

Alazir -- "Steeeerike 3," good thing this isn't baseball, we still have one more
shot.  Here goes nothing. -- Gentleben

Sin Eater -- Do you know how many carbs there are in sins? -- Scarbrough Man

     Lots, it's the butter.

Terra Sigillata -- Congrats on the Throne and succesful BF.  I bet Bill even let you
choose what to watch on TV all week. -- Gentleben

Stik -- You're on a nice roll there, but you better watch out I am rebuilding and I
plan on taking that top team title from you in about 5 turns or so. -- Gentben

Millhauser -- Why would anyone want to house a mill?  Could you lift an operatic
ballerina?  We're always looking for new dancers. -- Jonisson

Gangol -- You may grow out of it.  One can hope. -- Selia Dove

Chesterton -- Drat.  I thought you were Thursday, so I wasn't ready for you. --
Kallia May

Silver Haze -- I'm not getting the connection with your team name, but then, I'm no
historian. -- Elise Isla
P.S.  At the moment, the boss is more interested in four thousand years ago.  Weird.

Nannerpuss -- What you're saying is, I've been killed by a fossil?  How mortifying.
I knew I should have gone to Osksi instead. -- Ghost of Sauvarn Maur

Stik -- True, but we're moving more slowly, so that should balance. -- Jorja

Walli -- This is true, but I would never have imagined you read romantic poetry.
Truly, it takes all kinds to make an arena! -- Elisa

Graven Ward -- (sulk, pout) -- Jonisson

Bill The Bard -- Many thanks for the nod, but after 500, my eye is really only on one
prize now: 1-0-0-0 Ws!  Pardon me whilst I continue on my uphill climb... -- Stik

Weasel -- I thought you were a dead man there for a few moments.  Nice career here in
Sunset.  Congrats. -- Terra

GD Smurf -- Welcome to BASH club.  You jerk.  That looked more like you were the one
who had done that before.  I gotta get one of those in the win column!  Good luck
fishing, or whatever bored Smurfs do. -- Yuedebahl

Fatfarm -- What's the prob?  Not eager to party in the Champs? -- Ophelia

Hope conquers Despair!  Duh.  Buck up, mister! -- Hope Springs

The Butcher -- The butcher of a nice day, I guess... -- Bruno

Ruin -- Slurp! -- Gecko

Another batch of mutant lizards... -- Obregon

POSTED:  Arena recruitment effort, DM 32, Arvat -- seeing as our arena Participation
has dwindled in recent months, we're offering the following incentive to any new
teams looking for a new home arena.  We will GIVE a Free Rollup to any manager
willing to agree to fight in Arvat for the next 10 turns.  We have a number of VERY
solid arena teams stockpiled, and while we don't promise tournament godlings, we are
certain we can come up with teams with 3, 4 or even 5 solid arena warriors to start
out with.
     In addition we'll honor any no-challenge requests by relatively new managers to
help you get off on the right foot.
     If interested, please contact the Devil Advocates via Diplo or contact
theDarkOne via IM on the www DOT reality DOT com site.  We will even give a choice of
teams available if requested.

*************************************************************************************

                                 *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
