                      *****REVISION TO TW RULES (Rev 9-23)*****

Please note the following changes/corrections/alterations to the upcoming TW rules.
Go to the bottom of the rules to see a summary of the changes.

                       *TURF WAR VII RULES* (Revision 9-23-10)

Starting Nov 2010 (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) newsletter.
       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.  (Lack of participant indication of
joining and/or lack of 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 newsletter 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
(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 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. (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
Up Challenge                        +2     -2     +5       -5
Down Challenge                       0     -2      0       -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***                                        -5
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,
   ** A Champion's double score applies to his score only--not to the opponent.
   *** No warrior may be substituted without the proper use of the DA or arena death
or death in a tournament. 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
tournament participation are 3 for any entrant, 15 total (e.g. not 3 + 15) for a TV
and 25 total for a TC.  Death in a tournament negates any tournament points gained
and results in a-5 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:
Spy Report mention (team name only)              +2
    1. No matter how many mentions or stylemasters, an individual team can score only
       +2 in each category per round
Style Master                                     +2
     1. No matter how many mentions or stylemasters, an individual team can score
        only +2 in each category per round
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 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)

Bloodfeuds:
       1.  Bloodfeuds will score points on all four (4) turns.
       2.  There is no limit to which warrior may bloodfeud or how often.

Downchallenges:
1.      A downchallenge occurs when a warrior challenges another warrior with less
recognition points.
2.      The Duelmaster is exempted from any downchallenge rules.  All challenges by
the DM, no matter the recognition, except bloodfeuds, will be considered as up or
equal challenges.

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 15 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 25 points.  This bonus will apply EACH time a warrior(s) win such
status.
       4.  Points awarded for tournament participation are 3 for any entrant, (15
total for a TV and 25 total for a TC.) However, death in a tournament will result in
a -5 score for that tournament. (If a warrior TVs and is subsequently killed in a
tournament the total points scored are -5 for that tournament.)
       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 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 five (5) teams allowed per alliance for the
Turf War VII.
       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.

Prizes:
The Turf War is normally a "winner take all" contest.  However, for TWVII, 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 month.)
    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);
       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
DM47 arena fight to receive this award).
       4.  +1 Skill bonus  (one) 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 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)
    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.

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 or
wfms101 at aol dot com.

Please read them carefully!

This contest will begin in November 2010 following the Fall Mail In.

                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Good day, Temple of Abarsis, it is your Duelmaster and all around great guy My
Shadow packing to head to the Isle.  It feels good to be the third from the original
team to make it to the Isle prior to 20 arena fights and under 40 FE.  In fact I was
under 35 FE, but who is counting.
     So a guy goes into the arena and asks the commission "who is this town's
Duelmaster?  I am supposed to take him to the Isle."
     "My Shadow," responds the grumpy old commissioner.
     "Your shadow?  Nahh, really who is your arena champion," questions the Isle's
guide.
     "My Shadow not your shadow," responds the now agitated commissioner.
     This continues on for a few minutes until the guide reaches his explosive
threshold. "Well then, I am going to sit on MY Butt and wait for YOUR duelmaster to
move HIS slow can!!!"  And this is what begins my journey to the Immortal Isle where
I will continue my career.
     If you wish to know, I was a bit of an odd design for Grimm.  I will not reveal
a lot, but I was bonused damage, some in Att and a lot in Dec and Rip.  I have not
seen my faves as of yet, but I am guessing the longsword (wohoo) and a fairly high
rhythm.  I liked to kill in tournaments, but I kept my bloodlust free from the arena
to appease Grimm.

     Oh a final note, let me as the departing Duelmaster Welcome you to the Turf War,
and so it begins....

                                      SPY REPORT

     It is I, Novgorodny Vir, Spymaster of Spymasters.  Look on my work, ye mighty, 
and despair!  LAND OF OZ?  Who?  OBSIDIAN ORDER is the top team these days, buddies!  
Perhaps it is CALM AND SEDATE members' intannibility that enabled them to move from 
20th to 7th last week...  (Less time in the sun...) Managers were muttering after 
PAWN OF PROPHECY showed TEMPLE OF ABARSIS what they could do:  3-2-0 to move up by 
18.  Thinking about sending their team manager to the Dark Arena is BLOOD MAGIC, 
after suffering a 17 drop in ranking.  Good things come to those who fight well, as 
ALL-STAR NANA'S can attest, moving up by 3.  DEVIATION had cause to celebrate, after 
KANA BALLISTIC got 26 points by beating BOGBANE.  RERUN certainly had a baffled 
expression on his face, after losing to SHELDON and losing 15 points in the process!  
STYLUS found out that TEMPLE OF ABARSIS isn't a democracy.  You've gotta be the best 
to be Duelmaster here!  So who's the team that's been walking into taverns last week 
and ordering milk?  Sounds like a PR stunt to me.   
     And how sociable are TEMPLE OF ABARSIS' warriors?  Come, let us see.  To quell 
some nasty rumors, the guys in LAND OF OZ are not carrying any incurable diseases.  
No need to avoid 'em.  As a woman of good breeding scorns the "warriors" of 
DEVIATION, so did that sorry team shy from LAND OF OZ If challenges were horses, KANA 
BALLISTIC could open up a fast food joint!  Call 'im brash!  Call 'im brassy!  Call 
'im brave!  Call 'im sassy!  CHABAT will face TNT, up by 28.  Aaaah, just call 'im 
dead meat.  The gods smiled upon CHABAT, in hers upset fight against TNT.  CHABAT 
gets a win, 25 points, and a free drink on me.  (Next week, OK?) Take heed TEMPLE OF 
ABARSIS, of the unprincipled action of GORGON.  By challenging XICOHTENCATL, 21 
points below him, GORGON besmirches the noble art of dueling.  Warriors of TEMPLE OF 
ABARSIS!  Do you wish your reputations tainted by the base challenge of GORGON?  
Them's the breaks, RELAMPAGO.  Expecting fair challenges from OBSIDIAN ORDER is 
evidently too much to ask.  DRAGO KAZOV slew RELAMPAGO with a point difference of 19. 
So this is what TEMPLE OF ABARSIS calls a duel.  This will make an interesting tale.  
HETTAR challenged BASKET!  Who says PAWN OF PROPHECY are just a bunch of wimps!  
HETTAR of PAWN OF PROPHECY kept his wits as he was overcame by BASKET.   
     Is there life after death?  Pragmatics (and warriors) know there is death after 
life!  Q:  What's a record like 10-16-1 get you?  A:  A free trip to the Dark Arena!  
This week's winner:  TARZAN of AN EPHRAIM!  Citizens of TEMPLE OF ABARSIS, be sure to 
settle your debts with PUCK of AN EPHRAIM.  He's relocating to the Dark Arena and has 
other things on his mind!  I get a special thrill from seeing innocent boy like 
KCOMUS from OBSIDIAN ORDER get pointlessly killed.  Good show, TUUMS!  (No mercy.) 
The audience gave a nice round of rasberries to BOGBANE of DARQUE FORCES, for 
expiring in such an ungraceful fashion.  19-23-1, indeed!  The warriors at BLACK 
LIGHTNING stable were more sober than usual, after STYLUS' demise at the hands of MY 
SHADOW.  MY SHADOW, don't make any long term plans!  Nothing is certain except death 
and more death in these bloody arenas.  KCOMUS of OBSIDIAN ORDER met his fate at the 
hands of TUUMS.  A moment of silence for STYLUS, who died an untimely death at the 
hands of MY SHADOW.  In the spirit of revenge, we call upon BLACK LIGHTNING to act!  
Ponder the possibilities, TEMPLE OF ABARSIS:  ALASKAN PIPELINE has allowed DAFNE of 
THE OPERA to kill TRAVELLING NOME unchallenged!  Is there no honour left???  Oh hard! 
that to strike a flame, the match itself must needs be wasting!   
     Do not think spyreporting in TEMPLE OF ABARSIS is the highlight of my life.  As 
if buffeted by forces of nature beyond my control, I must take my leave of this 
place.  TEMPLE OF ABARSIS, I leave you now.  The Duelmaster has agreed to foot my 
bill at The Dripping Blade.  'Til next time-- Novgorodny Vir

Rime -- I'm trying, every fight gives me more info.  Good fight, thanks. -- Fallen
Angel

Shade -- I can see that knife in your back that Madwand left.  It's just right of
your shoulder blade.  Do you need help pulling it out or can you reach it? -- Arkane

I am happy to announce my participation in Turf War VII.  I will be Captain of "Club
Fed."  With so many inmates, it was a challenge to find the perfect crew.  Vae Victus
(managing In Qeternum) will serve, Skaven (managing Obsidian Order) will serve, and
myself Don Guido (managing Beatnik Horde) will gladly cross blades with the other
teams.  My champion will be Thadius Bantu (47-7088).  (OOL: having two characters of
the same name, totally unintentional!)

Bloodflicker -- I thank you for the many permanent scars you have given me; however,
I do not fall easily.  Sorry about stabbing you in the throat... I hope it's not
permanent. -- Thadius Bantu

Fellow managers -- I shall be joining Vae Victus of In Qeternum and Don Guido of
Beatnik Horde in Turf War VII.  Don Guido shall lead the Club Fed team.  May luck
shine on all (but on me the most). -- Skaven of Obsidian Order
P.S.  My champion shall be Scott Wow.

Vae Victus -- I hope my comment about never wanting to fight Foeter again did not
curse him to die in the arena.  My condolences. -- Ravage

The Reaper (manager of Abysmal Rites) -- I salute your fallen warrior, Supernaut.  I
had no intention of killing him.  He was strong.  I hope he fights in the Tourney of
the Dead. -- Kcomus

Turf War Notes -- Assurnasirbanipal, declares himself as captain of Unnatural
Alliance.  I confirm the following as part of the team:  Assurnasirbanipal managing
the Palindromes, Tripwire managing Of Wolf and Man, Khisanth managing Serpent's Hold,
Kat managing Bear's Paw, and Maximillian managing Natural B. Killers. -- Assur

All -- This is a confirmation and proclomation of our previous declaration that The
Reaper (Mr. death himself -- managing Abysmal Rites) is a card carrying member of
Team LOL.  A kind Reaper... one who prefers to give death as opposed to receive.  It
has been said and it shall be so. -- Marma Duke (captain of Team LOL)

Sheldon -- You are not the fairest Basher of them all! -- Kana Ballistic

Golden Cap -- You caught me with my lips down. -- Kiss of Death

Oz -- Certs should be in route. -- Vae Victus, mgr In Qeternum

       Already gone. -- NAIEI

All -- Dated 10-22-10, this rule change has been made and will be reflected in the
final posted rules next turn:
"... Down Challenge "Challenger" -2 -2 -5 -5
     Down Challenge "Challenged" +2 0 +5 -5 ..."
Correction has been made clarifying the penalty for downchallenging (except in the
case of bloodfeuds) and clarifying the points scored by the downchallenged warrior.
-- Oz and MD

     Khisanth -- If you tried to send personals and they don't show in this
     newsletter, hal hates you.  Did you send them as an attachment?  Were they in a
     dot-doc format?  Hal only "sees" plain text in the body of an email. -- the
     Editor

All -- It's certainly nice to be back.  Good luck to all in the tourney, may your
dead walk again in these sands. -- Dark Angel

All -- Last turn before the kick-off:) Jorja, I'll confirm you next turn, and do
thank you for the offer.  As for the rest, let's see if I can at least be a thorn in
your heels. *wry grin* -- Michael Eldritch, mgr Force of Will & captain of Catalyst
Alliance
P.S.  Any word on the rule clarification?  If not, expect to see it brought up by
someone.

Archer -- Oooo... that's gonna leave a mark. *wince* -- Vendetta

Foetor -- Michael's into the whole "Latin" thing.  Me, not so much.  I'll check with
your teammates and see if they're up to avenging you.  Least I can do, eh? -- Rime

Jack Knife -- I remember you, knave, and next time it's not your arm I'll be aimin'
for. -- Earvling Klash, the disgruntled

Velma Xavil -- Just checking to see how I stack up.  Hope it doesn't go to my head!
-- Juneau Dawning

Katie -- The least you could have done was teach me something!  Sheesh! -- Talkeetna

Broomstick -- Now if you were the one of those flying monkeys, then I would really be
scared!  Nice practice run. -- Eureka Pride

Bellum -- My plans for world domination is rounding nicely into form.  ;) -- Yukon
Quest

All Turf War Contestants -- Let's all enjoy this quiet before the storm.  Because
next turn, let mayhem reign!  Good luck to everyone in the Turf War... unless you are
facing Team LOL! -- Storm Lord, mgr Alaskan Pipeline

Juneau Dawning -- If by "dawning," you mean actual, literal sunrise, I'm for it.  Too
many gray days lately. -- Velma Xavil

Normanfnbates -- Ah, tough going. -- Hilroc Ibbins
P.S.  I could use some going, and this win will get me a little closer to it, so
thanks.

Basket -- Nin's comments to you are unprintable.  But I'm sure she realized it was
basically a good fight. -- Hilroc

Off to see the... -- How can I TELL which road is yellow brick?  There are yellow
LEAVES fallen all over! -- Velma Xavil

Basket -- Nin's comments on your personal are also being suppressed.  You'd thank me
if you know the details. -- Hilroc

All, and Michael Eldritch, Captain of Catalyst Alliance -- I have been advised to
declare The Middle Way 3 for your team, and I do so.  Let it be understood that if
you can fill your team with other managers, I will withdraw this with no prejudice
against any of us--I cleared that with Master Darque.  And if I end up on your team,
how about if I bodily mail you my fight reports after I do the personals?  That, I
can probably get done. -- Jorja, the Middle Way

Our congratulations to My Shadow.  Since the sun came out today, I can see it... no,
wait, wrong shadow.  Congratulations to the gladiator and graduate My Shadow. --
Jorja and the Middle Way
