     "No!"  Fandil stopped suddenly in the middle of the street, rapping the butt of
his staff on the paving stones.  "We're going about this all wrong, Lenpro!"
     Lenpro pulled his brother toward the edge of the street.  "You're blocking
traffic," he said.  "Move out of the way and then tell me what's wrong.  Are you
saying that we shouldn't have come to enlist Emperor Alonj, or what?"
     "Alonj?  No, of course we have to use him, poor fellow.  Legitmacy is critical.
No, we're rushing about, acting in haste, without plan or even much thought.  If we
want to succeed and hold the Andorian League together, planning is critical."
     "Is your memory going?  I distinctly recall that we argued, discussed, and
planned all the way from Tarrgir to Fratsfa.  Both of us.  I was there, Fandil, and
*I* remember it."
     "Very amusing, ha ha.  I was there, too, and my memory is fine.  But it doesn't
include any memory of true planning beyond 'our opponents appear to have done this,
we must do that to counter it'.  Not real plans reaching into the future.  Not much
in the way of real information, either:  WHO is our opponent, WHY is he or are they
doing this, WHAT are they trying to achieve, and HOW can we best foil them?"
     "You left out when and where," Lenpro said.
     "WHAT are their resources, and our best resources against them?  WHERE is their
headquarters?" Fandil finished.  He made a gesture of impatience.  "You see the
problem, and you know it isn't a joke, brother.  All we're doing is reacting; our
opponent is calling the steps of the dance."
     "Yes, and probably he--or they--know as well as we do that we'll have to work
with Alonj.  That's one of the reasons the Empress was upset.  We might get a guard
of gladiators for the Emperor and his wife and children; that would be a start there.
But what are you proposing to do about the information shortage?"
     "I shall think," Fandil said.  "No distractions of travel.  And scry where I
can; magical information gathering isn't totally reliable, but it's better than no
information gathering."
     "I've no doubt Fern can fix you up with a private room to think in.  And I will
gather information on the streets," Lenpro said.  He turned toward the Flower Shoppe
and resumed walking.
     Lady Fern could.  "I've just the place for you, brother," she said.  "At the top
of the house in the back, no one traipsing up and down a hall outside your door, you
won't even hear activity from the shop down below."  She called one of the girls, too
many girls, Fandil thought, to show him the way.
     This one, a saucy piece called Charming Chenopodium or some such, okay, not
Chenopodium, it had no flowers to speak of and was eaten like spinach, maybe she was
an Alluring Alysum--  He jerked his thoughts back to the matter at hand.  But the
wretched girl was barely dressed; he supposed that garment she was almost wearing was
a... shift or something; it certainly kept shifting!  She opened a door at the end of
a long hall and stood back.  "Here you are, sir, and you'll have all the quiet you
need.  And then when you're ready for company, just give us a call, you know?"  She
pointed to a silver bell sitting on a table by the window.  "Just ring the bell, and
I'll hear you."  With a last smile that seemed to promise many things, and she
couldn't be as old as twenty!, she... shifted down the hall.
     Fandil shook his head and closed the door carefully behind him.  Did it have a
lock?  Yes.  He turned the lock.  There were days when he simply didn't know what to
make of his sister.  Many days.

     Lenpro was glad enough to separate from Fandil for a while.  He got along just
fine with his brother, but there was no denying that they had different strengths.
Fandil's strength was magic and careful thought.  His own was decisive action, and he
wanted to take some.  Okay, sure, first he would gather a little information in his
own way--walk the streets, linger in the bars, strike up conversations where he found
them--
     "You'll be going out, won't you, Lenpro?" Lady Fern said.  "A good thing, I'm
sure, but you aren't familiar with Fratsfa.  I'll provide you with a guide, I think."
She pointed to one of the girls lingering in doorways and leaning on counters around
the shop.  This one was a round-faced, cheerful blonde.  "That one."
     The blonde bounced over.  "Hi!  I'm a Decadent Dandelion, but you can call me
Dandy."  She smiled up at him.  "I know lots of good places to go in Fratsfa!"

     Fandil sat at the window and looked out over the city, sipping tea from a
service he'd found ready for him.  It was a dramatic view of the old place, pleasing,
too, if one cared for charming melancholy.  Fratsfa boasted of its ancient glories,
and they had been glorious, there was no doubt of that.  But they were in the past,
slipping farther and farther into the past.  There was still good in this old land,
but he had a feeling, almost a vision, of the present strength burning away to make a
carnival for the heedless.  There was a feverish rush after pleasures--not even Fern
was immune, and other parts of Andoria pursued it as blindly as Fratsfa did.  But
that hid the deeper issues.
     He was supposed to be considering the problems the disappearance of the king
presented, but he now saw that as merely one more symptom of the deeper issue:  The
Andorian League was a hollow shell, a shallow mask over the deep divisions between
the five realms that composed it.  No one, not any of the old kings--  Ha, OLD kings?
The League wasn't that old, there were humans alive who had been born before it
formed.  Still, not even the earlier kings of the League had addressed the problems
that divided the realms.  Race, of course, or more properly species:  human, elf,
werecat.  But there were cultural gulfs, as well.  The Andorian League was just that,
an alliance rather than a true nation.  If Aradi had been part of a true nation,
would it have seceded?  Would it have been ALLOWED to secede?
     He shoved these thoughts aside.  They represented a problem that needed to be
addressed, but not now.  Right now... he barked a laugh.  Right now, he had to figure
out how to patch together the League that still was, in the hopes that there would BE
a future when they could try to solve the deeper issues.
     Should that patching job even be attemtped?  He hesitated, then nodded.  Yes.
Even if the League didn't become a nation, its original purpose remained:  to unite
the people of this corner of Alastari against their enemies.  And the League, all
Alastari, had enemies.  Had one Enemy, at least, in common.  Because there was
something in the north, something within the Karnhorn lands, that was building
strength and would destroy all the good and simple things that made life worth
living, if it wasn't stopped.

     "First," Lenpro said, "I just want to get a feel for the town.  The moods, the
factions, the general attitudes--"
     "Great!  There are attitudes everywhere," Dandy assured him.  She grabbed his
hand and set off.  "I'll show you!"

                             Notes from the arena champ.

Well Zensu, I sit atop the throne once more after defending it against Grunt 3.  Just
remember Grunt 3, patience is a virtue.  But then again you may have a problem with
Tiny just giving it to you though.  She does have a temper.  I hope she didn't hear
that...I'll never hear the end of it!  You know women.  But anyway, I have two turns
left to defend the throne, so I was thinking maybe ol' Chucky can make me a red suede
tush warmer for the throne.  Either way I still would like to get those red suede
shoes...red is my favorite color after all.  Well Zensu, I guess I will float once
again and see what happens.  Remember to bring a sharp blade and plenty of healing
salves!  (Trust me, you can always use them.)  Until next time

                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, friends and fiends, welcome to your friendly neighborhood spyreport.  
I doubt ZENSU will ever be the same.  And let's see, CORBIE LEK fought MORDANT 
DESERTER and gained 14 points and contributed to BEYOND THE PALE's 3-2-2.  TERILEE 
LINZ has lost to GRUNT 4, falling 3 points, while helping make BEYOND THE PALE a 
3-2-2 turn.  Defending his title for another turn, NORM THE GNOME kept BEYOND THE 
PALE's warrior, DACEANA LINZ, from claiming the throne.  Tell me, is nothing sacred?  
I have heard from unimpeachable sources that The Victory Tavern uses trolls in their 
stew.  Talk about gristle!   
     I tell you, a green quarterstaff lasts longer than a seasoned sapling.  A basher 
friend of mine assures me this is true.   
     A coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave man only once.  Wise men know this to 
be true.  A brave warrior does not carry a red shield, he has nothing to cover or 
hide when the fight is over.  Consider well.   
     Thought for the day, a new sword shines bright, but the notched sword sings the 
sweetest.  It's been nice chatting with you, until we meet again, keep your swords 
sharp and your hammers heavy.  Until the sun next rises and my pen sets to paper-- 
Alarond the Scribe

                            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

        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.

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

            (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)
