                                 TURF WAR IV MUSINGS
                               IT WAS A VERY GOOD YEAR

     What a terrific event!  Fun, intrigue, companionship--what more could one ask.
It was a well run and communicated undertaking.  (Thanks, Baphomet.  And SALUTE.)  It
was competitive.  (Congratulations to the X-SYNDICATE winners.)  We OZers look
forward to Turf War V in about six months.
     It was a great pleasure to be in a fellowship like SCOMS.  Why?  The managers,
themselves, are neat people.  Each contributed solidly and regularly to the team.
All were highly competitive and intent on winning.  There were no secret agendas, and
a mutual willingness to win as a whole.  Hard to beat.
     The Fellowship finished strong.  45-25-6-64% (last three turns) and 17-8-3-68%
(final round).  But it wasn't enough.  A great effort, but second to the well
organized and ingenious Syndicate.
     A big well done to all the teams--especially Vendetta Cartel who pushed SCOMS
closely all the way.  A special thanks to Barnabas The Man, for his contribution.
(You The Man.)  But most of all, a BIG thanks to Slugbait, Crip, Mannequin, and
Soultaker.  Thanks for carrying this old wizard.

DOA HQ, Dwes Eg, One-Year Ago:

     Now that Manager had decided to take down the incredibly overpowered SCOMSS
alliance, he needed to find a group of SCOMSS's greatest archrivals.  A group of
managers who were not only good, but had a score to settle with one or more of the
various SCOMSS members.  No manager could manage to play for any length of time
without making enemies--and it was these enemies that Manager was going to track
down.
     Manager knew that his first recruit also had to be someone who could watch his
back.  His target was an ex-alliance mate of his, not coincidentally a manager who
had just proved his mettle in basic play by winning Zalcon 3.
     Just a few blocks north of TUMVille was the DOA Fortress where the warriors of
the DOA trained for tourneys.  Unlike the laissez faire ghettos of TUM-Ville, Manager
had made sure that the DOA Fortress had state of the art security that could store
all of the DOA's darkest secrets.  (In fact, it was so big and so secure, no one in
the alliance noticed a certain manager's secret cloning factory.)
     Fortunately, Manager knew the password to get in.  He quickly typed 'I<3SCUM' in
the magical terminal outside the gates.  To his utter amazement, his old password
didn't work.
     "I can't believe they actually paid attention enough to change the pass codes
after I left," he muttered to himself.   After thinking about the situation for a few
minutes, he suddenly he had an epiphany:  If it was LHI or DMobster who set the new
password it could only be one thing.  He quickly typed in the letters 'TC' onto the
terminal and the doors to DOA HQ opened.
     "DMobster are you there?" Manager's voice echoed as he walked down one of the
long hallways down to DMobster's wing of the fortress.
     "Over here!"
     Manager made his way to the lounge where he found DMobster watching a game of
soccer through a Crystal Ball.
     "Hi DMob!"
     "Hey Manager, what's up?"  DMobster didn't even bother to turn his head over as
he talked to Manager.
     "You know, I am trying to put together and elite group of managers who take on
the SCOMSS in the Turf War-and..."
     "Can you come back later?  This game is between Cameroon and Zimbabwe is kind of
intense."
     Manager frowned for a second.  When DMobster was in one of his soccer moods he
was damn near impossible to talk to.  There wasn't a lot of time to waste and he
needed DMobster on his side as soon as possible.  Fortunately, Manager came prepared
with his ace in the hole.
     "Hey DMob, remember the 1957 FIFA World Cup in Toronto?"
     DMobster's face turned red with hate.  "Yeah.  I remember."
     "Me too.  I remember Canada humiliating the United States, 5-1!"
     "What's your point?  Why do you have to bring up bad memories?  Are you a soccer
hater or something?"
     "Me?  Of course not!  Why would I hate a low scoring game like soccer?  I just
wanted to remind you that Canada got the better of us in 1957!"
     "I know!  I think about it almost every day!"
     "Well...here's your chance for revenge.  You see, the SCOMSS teams has not one,
but TWO Canadians on their team..."

BOB Headquarters, Free Cities

     Next up was Rillion.  While Rillion had never been on the winning end of well--
any basic arena competition, he had still proven his mettle as a manager, runnering
up on many different occasions.  Manager was confident that Rillion would be an easy
sell--the tough part was going to be getting him away from his BOB teammates.  Upon
entering the BOB Lounge, the members of the Brotherhood of the Blade (minus the Dark
One and Mad Max who were vacationing in another dimension again) immediately swarmed
him.
     "Why are you here, Manager?" the Greek Guy folded his arms and tapped his foot.
     "He's probably here to spy on all of our BOB secrets!" gasped Rascally Rabbit.
     "You don't have any secrets." pointed out Manager.
     "Yes we do!" Rascally Rabbit said indignantly.
     Manager knew there was no point in arguing because the conversation would
eventually lead to the story of how Won Too Many lost all of his TC fights.  He
quickly decided to state his business.
     "Actually, I'm here to talk to Rillion.  Privately."
     "Oh no!  He's here to poach another one of our alliance members--just like
everyone else does!  Quick!  Grab Rillion and lock him up so he can't escape!"
TigToad, who was one of the acting leaders of BOB, was in panic mode.
     "I'll tie him up!" volunteered Zalgor.
     "Get a hold of yourselves!" sighed Manager,  "How many TCs has Rillion won in
the past couple of years?"
     "Uh---none?"
     "Exactly."
     TigToad laughed at his mistake, "Oh you're right.  You couldn't possibly want
Rillion.  Feel free to talk to him then."
     "Whew!  Crisis averted." said Rascally Rabbit as he, Zalgor, TigToad, and TGG
left the room.  Rillion smirked.
     "Little do they realize--you recognize my brilliance and came to recruit me into
your new alliance after all, am I right?" Rillion asked hopefully.
     "Actually, I didn't.  At least not my real alliance.  Sorry."
     "Oh." Rillion looked slightly hurt,  "Well then, what can I do for you?"
     "It's not what you can do for me, it's what I can do for you."
     "What do you mean?"
     "Remember the time Mannequin's warrior, Daydream Believer, killed one of your
guys en route to his Rookies TC?"
     "Not really."
     "Well, he did!  And here's your chance to get revenge!"  Manager grabbed an old
tourney newsletter and showed it to Rillion.
     "Uh, that's not my warrior...."
     "It isn't?  Oh well, I'm entering a contest and there's free roll-ups if we
win!"
     Rillion's face brightened.  "Count me in!"

Temple of Khorne, Aradi:

     With Mannequin, Slugbait, Crip and the Consortium taken care of, (Manager saw
himself as Oz's arch rival--there could only be one scum master after all), it was
now time to find someone who could take out Soultaker.
     "Are you sure that we'll find an arch enemy of Soultaker's in his own alliance's
guild house?" asked Rillion
     "Yes." Manager affirmed.
     "And why exactly did you want us to go with you?" asked DMobster,  "And why are
you walking behind us--AAAAAH!!!"  DMobster plunged to his death in one of the
infamous Temple of Khorne trap doors.
     "That's why."  The temple of Khorne was known for its constantly changing death
traps.
     A few minutes later, Rillion and Manager made their way to the main entrance.
     "Helloooooooooo!"  There was no answer.
     "Is anyone home?" shouted Rillion.  "Looks like there's no one here."
     "Oh they're home...." said Manager.  "Remember, it's the FONZ.  They're
apathetic towards everything.  You just have to know how to approach them....  Watch
this...."
     Manager yelled down the hallway:  "HEY FONZ!  I'M LOOKING FOR SOMEONE TO HELP ME
TAKE SOULTAKER DOWN A FEW PEGS!"
     Within moments, all of the members of the FONZ (including the farm animals)
charged out to the main entrance.  Rillion, unprepared for the rush, was accidentally
trampled to death.
     "Pick me!  Pick me!" shouted all of the members of FONZ as they congregated
around Manager.  Manager looked at the entire FONZ roster, trying to figure out which
one to take, but it was the littlest voice that seemed the most compelling."
     "Death Stud!  Why do you want to help me take down Soultaker?"
     Death Stud made a face that showed pure disgust.  "Have you seen my hunched back
lately?  I'm always carrying that clod!  I help make his tourney rosters look
respectable.  I carried him all throughout the last TOGS.  I let him sit on the TC
chair when he proxies for me.  He's nothing without me!"
     "Hmm...you certainly have a good argument," noted Manager, "and while I totally
don't trust you--if there's one thing I can count on, it's the FONZ's willingness to
stab other members in the back.  Now...we are still short at least one member...let's
see...there's Farmer boB, Ganolus, Hombre, Nuln...."
     "Me!  Me!"  The Sandman came running out of the room wearing a straightjacket.
"Soultaker recruited me into the FONZ and didn't tell me what it was like.  Need I
say more?"
     Manager laughed.  "No you don't have to say anything more at all."
     And so the X-Syndicate was born.  (And a year later, SCOMSS was utterly defeated
by a score of 772-334.)

     Well...Turf War IV turned out to be a major success and I'd personally like to
thank everyone who participated.  Not a whole lot of crap and I also appreciate those
who had hostilities brewing for keeping it on the DL.
     Eventually, Turf War V *WILL* happen, but not for a while.  Still trying to get
RL together.
     I'd like to especially thank Hammer and Oz, Blackstorm and Snarky for making
this the success it has been.  Hammer and Oz did a lot of promotion.  Snarky was just
plain funny!  And Blackstorm was a major supporter.
     I'd also like to thank X-Syndicate for blowing everyone's mind.  Rookies?  HAH!
But...just shows ya how devious folks can be.
     Okay...here's the final standings (I didn't bother scoring them).

1.  X-Syndicate
2.  SCOMS Tower
3.  Vendetta Cartel
4.  Illuminati
5.  Iron Council
6.  Desolate Empire
7.  T.A.T.I.O.A.H.C.

     Until next time...remember...it wasn't personal...just business.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Oh, hi.  Its just little 'ol Debby Tonte.  Thought I'd check out SCOMSS SWAMP to 
see what's new.  DOJO had like a really albendranius week!  Those hunks got a 3-2-1 
and wound up as 12th team!  Wanna hear about a real loser?  Listen to this--CHAOTIX 
BEASTS got 1-2-0 and dropped 11.  Didn't see much of them after the fights!  One team 
deserves special mention 'cause they moved up 6 after going 3-1-0.  Keep it up, DARK 
PINNACLE!  MVP award for KILL*SWITCH?  DARQUE FORCES' proud of him after beating 
SIMON MAGUS and getting 26 points.  Talk about yer major upsets!  JENKINS' match with 
TEMPUS cost him a loss of 16 points!  Like, FIGHTING TREE must be pretty gutsy!  It 
challenged the Duelmaster from NATURAL B. KILLERS 2.  Does this beast have a death 
wish or what!  Was that a tear I saw in FIGHTING TREE's eye, as it took over 
Duelmastership?  And wasn't WHITE SETTLER fit to be tied!  I hear the top team 
insists all their warriors get nine hours sleep.  They want photogenic fighters for 
PR photos.   
     AAARRGH!!!  I HATE SPYREPORTING!!!  Sorry.  I just had to say it.  The warriors 
of DARK PINNACLE must be getting lonely.  They were the most avoided team.  Do you 
guys know something that I don't?  I don't know what DARK PINNACLE's been doing.  
They certainly haven't been accepting many fights from DARK PINNACLE, that's fer 
sher.  Like, is RED DRAGON popular, or what?  He was challenged the most in all of 
SCOMSS SWAMP!  He's got a 12-5-0, is that good?  I'm not so sure OPAI knew all the 
facts when she challenged SISTER MARY SARAH of OLD HABITS.  I saw OPAI stumbling and 
dribbling at The Swinging Aardvark last week...  OPAI lost to SISTER MARY SARAH, but 
she got 8 points.  SISTER MARY SARAH won, and got 4 points.  I don't get it.  For 
sure, I was holding my breath when I found out RED DEVIL challenged RED DRAGON.  
After all, haven't LOST SOULS and CHAOTIX BEASTS had a long standing duel in SCOMSS 
SWAMP?  It wasn't a spectacular fight, or anything, but RED DRAGON wants me to write 
about it since he was subdued by RED DEVIL.  Satisfied?  ETIENNE DUPLAIX must not be 
a good enough fighter to get in fair fights.  He challenged CRYPT ANGEL.  14 is a big 
difference.  (Well, that's what they tell me.) I thought ETIENNE DUPLAIX showed great 
skill and promise when he overcame CRYPT ANGEL.  All right, so I slept through it!  
Big deal!   
     Challenges, revenges, Bloodfeuds.  All SCOMSS SWAMP ever talks about is 
fighting!  Me, I'm more laid back.  I hear LOST SOULS sent DARK HEART to the Dark 
Arena.  What, is that like not well-lit, or what?  Hey, warriors get killed by other 
warriors, not by their manager sending them to the Dark Arena.  What's wrong with 
DARK HEART's 9-5-1, LOST SOULS?  Pinch me, I must be dreaming!!!  FESTUS returns from 
the Dark Arena, maybe a "little upset" at its SECOND BANANAS teammates...  Fight, 
fight, fight.  Is that all you guys can do?   
     Remember, blood on a purple robe may stain.  Soak it in cold water, and hand 
wash.  I gotta leave.  SCOMSS SWAMP is like such a dump, and you guys smell too much! 
Remember you guys, ease up sometimes!  Chill out!  Later, Debby Tonte

Oz The All Philosophizing

Baphomet -- Yep.  Art looks like a Rascally Rabbit understudy to me.  Tank 'em up.
Well done. -- Oz The All praising

Cyrus The Great, (now not so great) -- Well, well.  A great tournament victor like
you, with your 80%+ W/L record, and your great skills, and your near top position,
feels the need to challenge down 14 full points to fight a mere mortal like me.  And
LOST!  What a dork.  Bah! -- Humbug (thanking Cyrus in his own way)

Jill

P.S.  I guessed at your style based on your manager's reputation alone.

Stuff -- The only unusual thing our boss claims to have drooled in is an astrakhan.
-- Drama Queen

Maybe avenge though. -- Buddy Lee

Hammer -- Thank you for doing such a great job in earning "Excuse me" Leading
Illuminati, in points.  Any day should you need me give me a holla. -- Buddy Lee

Assur -- It was great having you as an ally.  Hope we could do so again the near
future, just give me a holla whenever you need me. -- Buddy Lee

Liam -- Great run.  Way to hold your own. -- Buddy

Baphomet -- Freedom!  Have fun brother for all of us who count. -- Liam

Crip -- Did Oz stick a "challenge Liam the Goth" on the back or something like that?
I can't ever remember being challenged by you this much.  It's been fun.  Tag you're
it. -- Liam (wink)

Buddy Lee -- Wow!  You had a good contest #12 on active points.  See...you and
Baphomet didn't need me.  I spent most of the contest fighting out of the Red, it was
fun. -- Liam

Sensei Jan -- Knock me into fourth why don't you.  Nice play gal pal.  See you
elsewhere. -- Liam

Raven and Master Darque -- Thank you for knocking me down minus 25 points on turn 2.
Made me use everything I know how to fight my way out, making this the most fun I
have ever had in the game.  Thanks for giving me something to work for.  I've learned
much from our fights. -- Liam

Mr. Snarky -- I know you are here, and 39.  Where else do you run?  You're the
funnest manager I've met.  I only wish I had run into you sooner. -- Liam

Mannequin -- Buddy Lee and I are starting a fan club for you.  You're Mannequin.

winning the last Turf War, and now they're killing off Minstrels like they was sissy
musicians which they're not!...clear it up any?  (Oh, and 100-word-limit and parry-

prayers to the RUGs got me 3 ambidextrous warriors! -- "SNARKyouforyoursupport"

Dark Knight Toker -- A bad showing on my part!  I am back and do not like what I see.
I guess we will have to win the next Turf War.  I will be sticking around to torment
Hummer and his fluffers.  I will do this alone of course.  As for Abraxis and
Skullagrim, they are probably managing under another name.  As usual my p-ads were
not printed last turn.  My comments to Hummer and his KLK cronies were probably too
harsh.  Oh well (evil grin).  Nice job you have done in Fratsfa.  Need a list of
styles, for this arena. -- Dark Knight Goat

X-Syndicate -- Congratulations to your alliance and your victory. -- Dark Knight Goat

Greetings to Slugbait, Crip, Mannequin, I did not, forget the great and mighty OZ!!!

you and Assurnasirbanipal.  The arena will be fun once again. (smile) -- Dark Knight
Goat

Council of Iron -- Ahem!  My Horn is raised to you both. -- Dark Knight Goat

T.A.T.I.A.H.C. -- Freedonia, Blackstorm, where is Heathen?  Look to the future and
remember.  You have my vote for the toughest crew. -- Dark Knight Goat

3 May 2006
All -- I've seen what's on the forum.  So I'm prey, am I, Max.  You and all your
devious buddies will become my prey, even those I thought okay.  I don't have to
explain anything I do, much like yourselves so bring it on.  Feel free to come over
to 31 for a thrashing.  Oh, by the way, I am also in a new alliance.  They tend to
share my sentiments about the VC.  If they follow me or not, we will see; I'm not at
liberty to talk for them.  The VC may be on their last stand!!!! -- Blackstorm

6 May 2006

more!  Olympians petitioned the Commission to make an allowance for late entries, and
the Commission agreed, and will allow new entrants to partake, as long as they are
active by Round 3 (T546, due May 29th).  So if you wish to enter, please email your
intentions to amicitia@gwi.net with team name, manager name, and affiliation
