                       ... HOW TO JOIN THE TURF WARS ...

     Turf War VII is a competition of  alliances composed of one to five managers/ 
/teams.  Yes, one can battle as an individual team if said manager so desires.  TWVII
is so designed to be more about wins and losses than past events have been, and since
it is mostly composed of plus(+) points to the winner and minus(-) to the loser,
Smaller teams can be quite competitive.  Minus(-) team scores definitely do occur,
usually to the larger teams.
     So, as Vae Victus asked in his DM47 personal, "... thoroughly confused about how
to join or if I even can..." this spotlight's purpose is to make it clear how simple
it is to join in the Turf Wars.
     1. Any manager/team can join.  Any.  (As long as they have or place a team in
DM47
     ....................
     a. If they provide two rollup certs (not teams, but certificates for teams) to
the moderators.  These certs are part of the prize pool.
     ....................
     1. If they declare in writing in a DM47 newsletter (only) that they are captain
of a team and list the team/alliance name
     2. Note that they must then later (or at the same time) in a DM47 newsletter
(only) confirm/accept any other members to their alliance -- but after or at the same
time as those other members commit in the newsletter (only) to joining his alliance.
     .................... OR ....................
     1. If they declare in writing in a DM47 newsletter (only) that they join an
alliance (or Captain), listing their team and Manager name.
     2. AND they are then confirmed (same newsletter or later) in a DM47 newsletter
(only) by the Captain of the alliance

     So, there you have it.  A team captain has no "formal" responsibilities other
than declaring his team and alliance, confirming all teams that join his alliance,
and distributing any winnings to his team that he receives from the moderators.  Of
course, some teams may expect more that just those duties from their Captain, but
that is an individual alliance decision.

     Let the Wars begin.

                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Have you ever fought your shadow?  It can be tricky and shifty.  It can move as
the lights move, changing size and position with each slight shift of the source that
casts the darkness.  It is I, your Duelmaster or so I have been dubbed "My Shadow."
I first received my name while training, well before I ever made my way to the great
sands of this fine arena.  Grimm said I responded as if I was my opponent's image
cast on the bloodied field of our great city, and so he named me.
     I wish to thank my fine opponent, Kana Ballistic, and rest easy I plan to leave
the arena as soon as the Isle calls.  I must join my friends who have moved on before
me.  Ahh, the memories of the last turf war.  It echoes in our hearts still to this
day.  The competition we faced showed us grit, determination, and honor.  So, it is
with this spirit that I wish upon you as your next games come to happen.  I would
like to leave you with this, before anyone changes this city's name, think of why you
wish to change it from the one now bestowed upon it.  Good luck on the sands, and
stay out of the grave.

                                      SPY REPORT

     It's me, The Unknown Spymaster, back to give you this week's Spy Report.  Sit 
back in your seats and we'll have more fun than a barrel of Zontanis.  Coming up with 
a solid 2-3-0 outing, BEATNIK HORDE has advanced 8 places in the rankings.  Advancing 
in the rankings was ALASKAN PIPELINE who went from last turn's 18-13-1, to this 
week's record of 21-14-1.  Hey everybody, watch out for CARRIE, who flew up 22 points 
in the rankings after mashing THE USEROUS MERCHANT like a melon.  Keep your eye on 
this gal.  Ya know, some days it doesn't pay to walk out on the sands.  KISS OF DEATH 
was beat by GOLDEN CAP and drops 14 points.  Well, everybody's pal MY SHADOW moved 
his record to 11-3-0 by defeating TNT in the Duelmaster's Title Bout and gaining 11 
recognition points.  Can you believe they are paying me 10 gold to deliver this 
stuff?   
     Here is other news that is of note.  Did you hear that THE BIZZARR was most 
avoided team this week?  Well, knowing the personal hygiene of THE BIZZARR's 
warriors, I'm not surprised!  And you guys like to boo me?  Well, unsling your 
rasberries, cause BEATNIK HORDE beats feet every time THE BIZZARR smiles at them.  
Try farming, eh?  Well just about everybody wants a piece of RELAMPAGO, who was this 
week's most challenged warrior.  Getting lots of flowers from sympathetic fans was 
RELAMPAGO, who was successfully challenged by GORGON who had a mere 22 points more 
than RELAMPAGO.  Definition of petty:  GORGON subdued RELAMPAGO, a mismatch of 22 
points.  In a touching display by a 'touched' warrior, ACE OF BASE went after 
AGOSERIS, who was higher by 22 points.  Well, when the dust settled, ACE OF BASE was 
beat by AGOSERIS.  VINCERE MORS of IN QETERNUM had better have a good reason for 
challenging down 12 points in a challenge which he won.  I thought VINCERE MORS 
showed great skill and promise when he beat BENGAL.  All right, so I slept through 
it!  Big deal!   
     Death is kind of like a new puppy:  he's always around wanting to play.  (Ha 
Zontani, how's that for a wise saying?).  This week 7-18-0 DETARTRATED was sent to 
the Dark Arena.  I know a lot of fighters with similar records who might take notice 
of this.  Yesterday I talked to the ALASKAN PIPELINE's manager and DAFNE, slayer of 
TRAVELLING NOME.  The manager:  'I think I can, I think I can'.  DAFNE:  'I already 
did'.  Ask not the elves for counsel, for they will say both yes and no.  Silly 
buggers, eh?   
     I think I had better cut this one short.  It's been nice chatting to those of 
you whom I have not offended yet.  C'mon, Leadfoot, let's make some tracks.  Its been 
fun, and I'm sure you enjoyed it (boos).  Now that I've got you worked up for Snide 
Clemens, I'll be leaving-- The Unknown Spymaster

long and profitable. -- Oz The All Welcoming

Manager -- Gee.  I can understand how you might be fearful to defend that fine record

be terrible to see your luck change.  Devastating!  I shall pray for you to the Good

of, Ahringol's Lawnkeepers, as competitors in the Turf War.  My partners in this
great and honorable venture are Gentleben, The Walking Dude, Obregon and Bill the

to TEMPLE OF ABARSIS in the old town of North Folk.  We have moved here to
participate in Turf War VII.  We will be joing the alliance "Ahringol's Lawnkeepers,"
captained by Daemonspawn.  Torak figured since we were coming to a temple and him
being a diety that he should be the one to bear the torch that lights our way and
announces aour arrival.  The only problem is that he saw what he thought was the
other torch bears in line so he fell in.  It was the line for the Dark Arena, and
well he normally doesn't carry his QS with him and dormally doesn't wear much if any
clothes so you can probably guess the out come.  Any ways, we are all glad to be here
and look forward to crossing swords with you. -- Gentleben and Pawn of Prophecy

My Shadow -- That make the second turn in a row that I've lost a title fight, each

Inanna -- Consider yourself judged. -- Judgement Day

All -- Hear ye, Hear ye.... To the mortal men and women of this fair city!!!!  WE
have searched the land of Alastari wide and far... scoured under every rock, behind
every tree in the shewish forest.... made inquiries on docking ships originating from
parts past the Trier and Storm seas.... sent word past the Dagger Spine mountains,
dispatch to the Rirorni plains, and liased with the tribes in the Clanholds of the
far west.  After this long tumultuous quest of vim and vigor, we have assembled FIVE
teams of note, worthy of battle in the impending Turf War VII.  I am PROUD to
announce as Captain of "Team LOL" that five outstanding teams have been assembled to
bring destruction and mayhem to the sands of North Fork.  The Storm Lord (managing
Alaskan Pipeline) shall join our ranks, The Anarchist (managing Vegan Cannibals) has
travelled from far off lands to join the fray, The Reaper (Mr. death himself --
managing Abysmal Rites) brings his infamous Sicle, Chief Illiniwek (managing
Aggressive Mediocrity) rides in from afar to assist in our noble cause, and I, Marma
Duke (managing Deviation) have sworn an oath to lead this infamous motley crew to
victory.  Fear not, for our vengeance will be swift and painful. -- Marma Duke
(captain of Team LOL)

Chief Illiniwek and Aggressive Mediocre declare our allegiance to the LOL Alliance.
See you on the sands!

I am formally announcing my intent to compete with Maximillian, Natural B. Killers,
and Captain of the Unnatural Alliance in the North Fork (DM 47) Turf War.  My
champion will be Sandy Bear. -- Kat (Bear's Paw)

     Does this mean you're going to be a Calico of Contention? -- Arenamaster Okel

Basket -- Only the finest withies, huh?  Bummer.  I'd've unraveled you if I could. --
Nin Quire

Off to See the... -- What, is this "fight the wizard" day for us?  I hope not! --
Velma Xavil

Agoseris -- You confuse me, I keep expecting you to be a flower.  Probably a member
of the Asteracea.  A daisy or something along that line.  Of course, you ARE rather
flower-like in some ways.... -- Rondol Quiglo
P.S.  Glad I won't match against you again, I hate cut flowers.

Normanfnbates -- Looks like the handicapper hates you.  Rotten match for you.  But I
liked it. -- Hilroc Ibbins

Golden Cap -- Oh, right, like Jorja's going to do strat changes?  As if! -- Hilroc
Ibbins

Quadling -- There's good money in a line of persuasive quackery. -- Hilroc Ibbins

I'm probably going to regret this but... anyone wishing to run in the Turf War and
having no associates, if all you're looking for is warm bodies, draft the Middle Way.
I will not make strat changes, I can't be counted on to send information in a timely
manner on who my guys fight unless you have email, but I would undertake to run the
full team. -- Jorja, The Middle Way 3

Greetings all!  Vegan Cannibals managed by The Anarchist joining the Turf War and
will be representing team LOL.  Remember, we're Vegan not because we love animals,
we're Vegans 'cause we hate plants! -- Anarchist

All -- the Mun manager of All-Star Nana's is announcing that he will be joining the
Turf War team of COMMP Squad.  The captain of that team is Mannequin.  And my
Champion will be Anje (47-4109). -- the Mun

headed by "Lord" Daemonspawn.  Stay deadly, my friends. -- Obregon

All -- Black Lightning is coming... (or some derivation of that, team name undecided
-- decisions, decisions)  I'm thinking of team full a full stable of PRs? -- Dark
Angel

     Sounds classic.

Shade -- Wall of Steels are such old news!  Is Lucifer's favourite (**Canadian
spelling!**) now his walking stick?  I suggest you use it, even if strength is
lacking. -- Dark Angel

Shade -- Let all the arena know... old debts still need to be repaid...  Medium rare
please. -- Dark Angel

Arkane -- Glad to see that time has not silenced you... leave that to my Maul.  Or
everyone else... 1-9 record...ouch. -- Dark Angel

Stranger -- Your style of hit and run won't work anymore.  Can't wait to find you on
the sands.  It's been a while... Is 'foot' an attack location on the strategy sheet,
can't remember. -- Dark Angel

Plague and Madwand -- What to say, what to say.  Good to hear from you both.

Shade, Stranger, Arkane, Plague, Madwand -- What teams are you boys running here?
It's difficult for me to figure out, but I figure if I look for the 5 teams with the
worst win/loss percentages that would about cover it. -- Dark Angel

     Just a note for those of you sending your personals electronically:  Something
     in the various programs always freaks when it sees an ampersand.  I will always
     replace an ampersand with the word "and."  Save me the trouble, eh? -- the
     Editor

27 September 10
Note -- We are still looking for additional teams in Arvat, DM 32.  I still have a
number of good team rollups available FREE for whoever wants one.
     Contact the Devil Advocates ASAP to join the fun!  You can either reach me by
diplo or on the RSI site.
     Also, whoever sent me the diplo with no name on it requesting a rollup /
information on how to get into Arvat, I'm embarassed to admit that the diplo slipped
out of my folder and was lost.  Please just send me another one with your mailing
address and I'll get a rollup to you ASAP.  Sorry about that!
