newsletters?  Here they are.

                                *TURF WAR 8 RULES*

Starting July 30 2012 (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)
        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. The confirmation/verification must
occur after, or in the same newsletter, but not before, the participants declaration.
(Lack of participant indication of joining and/or subsequent 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 same or
subsequent newsletter by the alliance Captain they will represent.
               c.  Only one (1) team per player may compete.  No arena multiple teams
or aliases will be allowed.  Violations will result in immediate manager
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 3 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
Challenge (up or within same class) +2     -2     +5       -5
Down Challenge "Challenger"         -2     -2     -5       -5
Down Challenge "Challenged"         +2      0     +5       -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***                                        -3
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.
    ** Champions double applies to his score only - not to opponent.
    *** No warrior may be substituted without the proper use of the DA or arena death
or death in a tournament or graduation.  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 team tournament participation are 1 for 1 entrant, 3 for 2
entrants, 6 for 3 entrants, 10 for 4 entrants, and 15 for 5 entrants.  A TV scores 7
points or a TC scores 15 points.   Death in a tournament results in a -3 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:
Full Team:                                        +1
      1. A team which fights 4+ warriors (Includes DAing) gets a point
Full Alliance                                     +1
      2. An alliance were ALL teams get a Full Team point earns a point
Full Team/Alliance scores
      3. Will double for the last half (6 rounds) of TW8.
Style Master:                                     +2
      1. No matter how many stylemasters, an individual team can score only +2 per
Duelmaster:                                       +2
      1. Duelmaster points shall be earned separate of stylemaster points.

     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.
     5.  A Champion can be declared on any round and point factors will begin that
         same turn.  (Must meet above 4 conditions prior to declaring.)

        1.  Bloodfeuds will score points on all four (4) turns.
        2.  There is no limit to which warrior may bloodfeud or how often.
        3.  To score as a bloodfeud, then feud/death must have occurred totally
within the TW8.  (E.g. Feuds created prior to TW8 will not be deemed or scored as a
bloodfeud, but rather as a challenge or downchallenge.

        1.  A downchallenge occurs when a warrior challenges a warrior in a lower
class.  (Lower class is defined as lower than the identical class.  E.g. A challenger
champion class challenging a champion class is a down challenge.)
        2.  In TW8 a standard challenge is up (in recognition points), parallel or
within the identical class but lower recognition.
        3.  No challenge by The Duelmaster shall be deemed a downchallenge.  (This
rule supersedes all other downchallenge rules.)

Tournament Considerations:
        1.  Tournament participation is allowed and ENCOURAGED as a great form of
recognition for North Fork.
        2.  Tournament Victors (live only) won during the course of the contest will
gain a one (1) time bonus of 7 points.  This bonus will apply EACH time a warrior(s)
wins such status.
        3.  Tournament Champions (live only) won during the course of the contest
will gain a one (1) time bonus of 15 points.  This bonus will apply EACH time a
warrior(s) win such status.
        4.  Points awarded for tournament participation are are 1 for 1 entrant, 3
for 2 entrants, 6 for 3 entrants, 10 for 4 entrants, and 15 for 5 entrants.  A TV
scores 7 points additional or a TC scores 15 points additional.  Death in a
tournament results in an additional -3 score.
        5.  Points for entrants, TVs, 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 300, points will be credited on North Fork
turn 301 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 four (4) teams/managers allowed per alliance
for the Turf War VII.  The minimum is two (2).
        4.  The Dark Arena may be used on the first FE turn (e.g. no arena or
tournament fights) only, of every warrior, without penalty.
        5.  If at any time, the Moderators determine that any non-TW team in the
arena is aiding and/or abetting any TW alliance or team, the affected points won by
the gifted team/alliance will be disallowed and the aiding non-TW team will be asked
to desist from play in the arena until after the Turf War concludes.

The Turf War is meant to be a "winner takes all" contest.  However, for TW8, a prize
(RU cert) 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
this 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, and two additional for the captain of the alliance).
        3.  Known Favorites for one DM47 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 (three) for each manager on the winning alliance.  Bonus
potions must be applied to living warriors from DM 47, no more than two skills per
        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)
        6. Two additional rollup certs for each manager of the winning alliance from
     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.

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
wfms101 at aol dot com.

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

This contest will begin in late July 2012 following the Summer FTF.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Welcome MORYA.  I, Olaf Modeen remember this place well.  Many the fights have I 
fought here.  The celebrations, the disappointments...  Phhbltt!  Too much drinking 
and too little dodging gave MAYHEMS MINIONS a 1-4-0!  I got a good laugh out of it!  
ZODIAC showed MORYA what they were made of as they fought with a vengeance to walk 
off with 4-1-1.  What's with THE INFLUENCER?  She actually beat PHANTACITY's BRZ, and 
walked away with 18 more points from the fight.  Laughs were big at LORD OF 
DISCIPLINE while they watched THE INFLUENCER clobber BRZ.  He lost 19 points and got 
bruised from objects thrown from the stands.  EXPENSE ACCOUNT's hatred of MY 
GENERATION surfaced again as TAXES challenged MORYA's top dog.  I'm sure MORYA is 
excited about TAXES, the new Duelmaster from EXPENSE ACCOUNT.  (remember?)  But when 
you've seen as many as I have...  I suppose you want to hear some rumors and dirty 
gossip about your fellow fighters?  Tough!   
     Speaking of cowardly avoiders and unfair challenges...  How well I know the 
feeling of being in the most avoided team!  Don't fall out of practive, THE 
PENTARCHY!  The bums at STEEL AND SILK couldn't face the challenges from THE 
PENTARCHY!  No excuse for that!  What do people see in SHUPALJ?  His 7-6-0?  
PHANTACITY ain't talkin', but he's got 42 points.  Keep challenging up 28 points, 
CASANOVA, and I won't have to write about you much longer.  GOPHER BROKE always 
accepts those kind of challenges...  I don't get it.  CASANOVA goes and challenges 
GOPHER BROKE, way above him, but gets 2 points after he loses!  Is this a new 
strategy?  I hate going to the effort of writing about the kind of fights that 
KOROSHIYA ICHI gets in.  He fights people like RANDALL MAYES, 10 points below.  I 
thought KOROSHIYA ICHI showed great skill and promise when he bested RANDALL MAYES.  
All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     A fighter's lot is filled with strife, revenge, and killing.  Some fighters 
don't accept this.  The best do.  GERADE STREIK looked pretty sick and surprised when 
she learned LORD OF DISCIPLINE is sending her to the Dark Arena!  Whadd'she expect 
with a 6-12-0?  I like to see warriors put young whippersnappers in their place.  I 
guess you could say ZODIAC'COR did just that.  Right MAYHEMS MINIONS?  GEE larned his 
lesson (COR taught it well), and we right likely won't be seein' 'im fight any ZODIAC 
members with the same gusto.  How long have I been here?  I got people to see, places 
to go...   
     Who knows what the future holds for a warrior.  More fights, there's no doubt.  
MORYA is a nice place to live, but I don't like to live in nice places.  Time for my 
medication, so I'll leave now.  Practice, practice, practice!-- Olaf Modeen

Shucks, for some reason we didn't fight last round!  Must be the finances? -- Finance

Kudos again, to Colgate Smile, a very worthy Duelmaster. -- The Expense Accounts

LP -- The TW is getting mighty, mighty close.  Our time will come. -- Finance Manager

Please meet Mister Hollande, fresh from the tourney! -- LP

Finance Manager -- We need you back to check our account! -- LP

I don't have anyone wipe that smile off... -- Lp

Summer Thunder -- Well, you really supprised me.  No, no not with your fighting, I
already knew you couldn't fight.  Ha!  I didn't even break a sweat. I ment that you
are a male.  With a name like Summer Thunder Thighs I just assumed... you know maybe
you're just pretending to be a male.  It's always so hard to tell with you dwarves.
-- Casanova

Ara -- I guess you didn't bother to read the stars.  Oh well, I'm glad you didn't die
on me.  What say we get drunk and chase some skirts.  Com on, first round's on me. --
Todd Mayes

Mercury -- Good fight.  Well, for you.  I look forward to meeting you on the sand
again. -- Randall Mayes

Psycho Dad -- That was a horrible fight, long and I lost.  Next time, I'll drawl you
out from behind that shield of yours. -- Rodger Mayes

Koroshiya Ichi -- That was fast... um, what happened. -- Olaf R. Bizarro

Le Pentarque -- Thank you for the welcome.  After last turn, reality gave me a smack
to the face. -- Longshot

After being in retirement for twenty years, it is good to be back on the sands.  It
was sad to see Monutial has closed but I hope to make Morya home.  Let's see if I can
get back on the winning side of 50.0%. -- Longshot

ZTL -- I am very impressed.  I didn't expect anyone to be faster than me for another
three or four turns.  That isn't my ego talking.  You are good.  I will keep my eye
on you. -- The Prey

Charlie Rankin -- Ah?  Wee-Jar?  Okay.  Different names from different perspectives.
She would probably have said she was going to Shierrah.  Definitely for rebirth. --
P.S.  Death happens.  We all know it before entering the arena.  Without the
possibility of death, the battles would be meaningless.

Todd Mayes -- It happens.  No hard feelings, it could have gone the other way. --
Ghost of Autumn Leaves

Gerade Streik -- You're too tall.  I don't like that in a woman.  I need to shorten
you a little, eh? -- Gopher Broke

A Convicted Assassin, bah. -- Madeline

Mr Book -- Think of me as a fast reader. -- Lily of Sarmatia

Heh, if I can keep the kids in line, a Captured Orc is nothing. -- Pop Target

Casanova -- This is so I don't get swelled head, isn't it? -- Summer Thunder
P.S.  I'm not a dwarf, you know.  I just happen to have a mustache.
