     I'm hoping the format comes through correctly.  The list is short for now, but
I'm expecting more verifications and declarations this turn.  Good luck to everyone.
As of last turn, I have only received RU Certs from SCOMSSS Shire.
     Most of you have probably noted that the list of Team Champions is missing.  I
will organizing a separate list for Champions so the information is easier to access
and easier to verify.

Here I sit on the throne again.  Another turn, another free drink.  Hope to write
more next turn.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Like the magnificent Sun, rising upon the Dawn and exiling the Night for a Day, 
I, Novgorodny Vir, return once again!  Like a chunk of francium heaved into a wet 
pond, SOLDIERS OF ROME blew up the rankings to 12!  Perhaps it is DARQUE FORCES 
members' intannibility that enabled them to move from 26th to 8th last week...  (Less 
time in the sun...) The boys at RAPTOR aren't the happy-go-lucky bunch we all know 
and love, after suffering a 14 drop last week.  Say what you will about blind luck 
and dirty fighting, but SPOONERTIKS will tell you 124-81-8 is nothing to laugh at...  
Like a new team fighting for the first time and entering the official rankings, THE 
FALLEN got 4-1-1 to come in 13th.  THE SERPENTS had cause to celebrate, after MOMBA 
got 23 points by beating TEN LORDS ALEAPIN.  A certain someone should cut down on the 
drinking and practice more, after losing 19 points to MOMBA.  (Discrete enough, TEN 
LORDS ALEAPIN?) SPECTRE found out that SCOMSS SWAMP isn't a democracy.  You've gotta 
be the best to be Duelmaster here!  So who was the warrior seen charging into 
immovable walls and challenging dead trees?  Someone's got a basic problem...   
     My mother wished me to avoid conflict, and seek the gentle trade of Spyreporter. 
But warriors aren't supposed to avoid fights!  Like the noble eagle soaring amongst 
the mountaintops, so stand the warriors of THE BEAR'S PAW, alone and unchallenged.  
As a woman of good breeding scorns the "warriors" of THE SERPENTS, so did that sorry 
team shy from THE BEAR'S PAW Is it charming personality?  Conversational abilities?  
Good oral hygiene?  Whatever it is, BALDER is the most challenged warrior.  Take heed 
SCOMSS SWAMP, of the unprincipled action of BARNEY BEAR.  By challenging KURGER BING, 
17 points below him, BARNEY BEAR besmirches the noble art of dueling.  Bookies and 
BARNEY BEAR were more than a little surprised, as KURGER BING snatched an easy 
victory from BARNEY BEAR, gaining 12 points.  Mismatched by 9 points, SWAMP BURN 
HAMMER was subdued by VALERIUS.  Is this really worth noting?  I thought VALERIUS 
showed great skill and promise when he beat SWAMP BURN HAMMER.  All right, so I slept 
through it!  Big deal!   
     Like the wind whispering among the pines, do hearest I many disquieting rumors.  
Those who owe SSCOMSS of DARQUE FORCES money and had written him off, take note:  
he'S BACK FROM THE DARK ARENA!!!  AND he'S MAD!!!  Charity is unknown in SCOMSS 
SWAMP, and rightly so.  SPOONERTIKS exacted their revenge against STRANGE BREW.  Ask 
not for whom the sword slashes; it slashes for thee.   
     Do not think spyreporting in SCOMSS SWAMP is the highlight of my life.  More 
important duties call me.  SCOMSS SWAMP, I leave you now.  The Duelmaster has agreed 
to foot my bill at The Welcome Wench.  'Til next time-- Novgorodny Vir

Snuln The Solemn (Things I Drool In) and Mannequin (Second Bananas) -- You are both,
of course, accepted and confirmed into SCOMSSS Shire.  Now we are seven--all
confirmed--all paid. -- Oz The All Organized

Turf War Teams and Managers -- There are ONLY two turns (one after this) to allow
your personals announcing your affiliation, and acceptance by the Team Captain.  (The
Team Captain cannot do so in advance, but can do so the very same newsletter--as JGW
intends to do.)  And do not forget also that if your entry fee (rollup cert) is not
in Master Darque's hands, you cannot score points. -- Oz The All-Excited

Congrats to The Ron who is back-to-back Duelmaster.  Apparently he is a better
warrior than he credits himself.  Salute. -- All The Land Of Oz Warriors

DA1 and SSCOMSS (the warrior) -- You both lost to the weakest DA monster, Dwayne The
Dog?  How embarrassing! -- Oz The All Amused
P.S.  Nice naming, Mr. Manager.

Snuln The Solemn -- The formality was necessary, but the solemnity was not.  Loosen
up!  You have much carrying to do! -- Oz The All Motivating

Python -- I salute you.  You were my better.  Well done. -- Winkie

Manager -- Thank you for the compliment for our forming of the formidable SCOMSSS
Shire.  It was very thoughtful of you to notice.  As to your application for
admittance, I am pleased to announce that we are full this year.  Perhaps next TW, if
you can improve your team's w/l record and, for a change, show some high-level
management and leadership, you will be considered.  Perhaps. -- Oz The All Thoughtful

The Bear's Paw declares for YOURBAGD in the upcoming Turf War. -- Kat

Darque and Oz -- ABYSMAL RITES (215) will be participating in TWVI.  I will join JGW
with the "TO BE NAMED LATER" alliance. I have contacted RSI and a RU Cert should be
headed your way.  PM me if you don't hear from them. -- Reaper

I am formally announcing that my team Of Wolf and Man will be joining the alliance of
YOURBAGD for the upcoming Turf War.  Your blood will flow. -- Tripwire

Master Darque/Oz -- I, Wretch, manager of Strange Brew, declare my team for the TW
under the banner of the team "to be named later".  Gods help us all.

Turf War Participants -- I would like to announce the entrance of You Other Uppity
Rat Bastards Are Going Down! (YOURBAGD for short) into the Turf War.  Please consider
this an announcement and confirmation of the following members so far:  Manager,
Grimm, Kat, Master Darque, Tripwire, and Jekyll. -- Manager (also the Team Captain)

I, the Dark One, announce I will be competing with my team, They Must Die! (688) on the side of the Brotherhood of the Blade Alliance in the upcoming Turf War.

North Fork -- Err make that SCOMSS SWAMP -- Things have been hectic of late, and I
haven't been writing much.  So much so, I forgot to give the details on Jack & Jill,
who left here for retirement on the isle.  By killing Fabulous Father M, they left
here with a 29-22-1 record, and stats of 14(1)-21(2)-14-5(1)-20(2)-10(1)-9(2), and an
Expert +2 in Parry with the equivalent of 46 skills learnt and burnt.  Faves were
greatsword (Never Used), VL/LO, learning Decise and favouring the Riposte tactic.
Hopefully, the replacement, Jack Knife, will have a more memorable career, and will
start off the Turf War as the Royal Flush Champion. -- Crip, mgr. of Royal Flush

The Ron -- Congrats on your last two wins, though we have to say, we like what you
teach. -- Ten Lords A Leapin

Ivan Poisy -- Once the turf war starts, we'll have to stop meeting up like this. --
The Lion King and Bullpen Ace

Luminous Lox -- Why did you have to blemish your record like that? -- African Queen

My Soldiers of Rome will be fighting under the Brotherhood of the Blade banner in the
upcoming Turf War.  We are awaiting orders from our Captain, the venerable Mad Max,
and the commencement of this contest.  It is the Will of Caesar!  Caesar has Spoken!

TW organizers -- Just dropping a line to announce my intentions to join JGW's to be
named later group.  Tentatively will announce Life's Lessons with Homey D. Clone (or
Homie not sure which survived) as my champ.  It may however change previous to the
start of the war. -- Street Legal<br 

Liam -- I have not written you a response because I have lost your address and many
others also.  I did receive the note, and do apologize for the prolonged response
time.  I have/had however already been recruited to a team for the Turf War.  Once
again.  I apologize for the delayed response. -- Master Darque
P.S.  I'm no longer in NC and no longer using the PO Box.  If you need to reach me,
diplo is the best method at this point Darque Forces DM 45 and 47; Darque Ages DM 81,
though snail mail is okay too 523 Mason Avenue, Suffolk, VA 23434

Good day swamp, I, Grimm, manager of Kaos, wish to announce my allegiance to Yourbagd
for the upcoming contest.

Ahh feels good to set foot here again.  It has been many years. -- Grimm

Master Darque -- I declare Owlin the Wise, Team Raptor (674) for Dread Naughts. --
Owlin the Wise
P.S.  You should have all the gift certs for Dread Naughts on the way.

Michael Eldritch -- Don't bother sending gift certs. -- Owlin the 
Wise

Dread Naughts -- This Turf is on me, don't send in certs. -- Owlin the Wise

Master Darque -- Being as we did not receive a response, I will proceed forward and
announce that I, Buddy Lee will be CAPTAIN of Dread Naughts.  As of right now I will
verify; Liam the Goth, Olwin the Wise, Michael Eldritch, Azaziel (don't know his name
for sure), and I will declare and verify as well. -- Buddy Lee, Dark Pinacle (598)

Michael Eldritch -- Must declare, tell Azaziel? as well, be glad to have both your
swords for this shin-dig, I already sent you a dip hopefully you got it by now.  Keep
up the good work and watch out for those sand baggers up in the top (look at them
only one active!) pick your fights well. -- Buddy Lee

Scribe -- Can we get a managerial list please!?!  Thank you. -- Buddy Lee

     Here's what I have.  These are teams listed in last turn's newsletter.  If I've
     gotten anyone's name wrong, just let me know and I'll fix it. -- The Saint,

                            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
            warrior(s) win such status.
        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.

Prizes:
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
submit a list of each manager on the winning alliance to RSI at the completion of the
contest for the non-Certificate prizes.

The following prizes have been secured from RSI:
        1.  Renaming of the North Fork (DM 47) arena;
        2.  Renaming of Dark Arena Monsters (one 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 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 manager who fights in all 10 rounds
            AND 45 fights of the Turf War.  Bonus potion must be applied to a living
            warrior from (DM 47)
These awards will be listed by the Moderator for claiming from RSI (Lee) within 4
turns of the end of TW VI.

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.

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