                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Welcome all to North Fork, home of most of the Turf Wars, except for one which
was held in Erinika.  It's nice to see such populous representation here on our
sands, but of course, if it weren't for the contest, we would probably be a speck not
much bigger than most arenas these days.  But as a native team, we'll open the doors
to our pubs and welcome everyone in.  We presume the next round is on you!

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
TEMPLE OF ABARSIS brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  If The Dripping Blade is 
buying drinks for PAWN OF PROPHECY's good turn, I'm afraid the place will be dry 
before long.  A 4-1-0 makes for a big thirst.  With any luck, I can sneak into The 
Dripping Blade and join VEGAN CANNIBALS' celebration over their good record this 
turn.  11th place, not bad.  If The Dripping Blade is buying drinks for OTTODROME 
TW's good turn, I'm afraid the place will be dry before long.  A 3-0-0 makes for a 
big thirst.  Oh, this is too good to be true!  KING CHARACTERS has fallen to 25th 
place after going 2-3-0 this turn.  Who's bragging now?  Look out below!  WARHAMMERS 
is on the way down, falling to 27th from 16th with a 1-2-0!  Ha ha ha ha!  Gee, I'm 
impressed, a 3-1-0 is nice, but don't get cocky, SECOND BANANAS, the Fates teach 
humility, and the Fates are proud.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed to see 
SHIV SQUIRREL win a fight and gain 29 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, DONAVAN beat GIZMO 
and GIZMO lost 18 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  Going for broke or broken, our 
Duelmaster AGOSERIS challenged this turn.  And if variety is the spice of life, 
TEMPLE OF ABARSIS may be getting bland, as AFRICAN QUEEN stays top dog in the city.  
Kickbacks and bribes, kickbacks and bribes, how else do you think some of these guys 
win their fights?  Skill?  Ha!   
     He who fights and runs away will live to fight another day, the coward.  What's 
the big D?  BEATNIK HORDE was the most avoided team?  Bunch of lily livered... 
grumble... mumble... curse...  And who led the way in this mass act of cowardice?  
Let's see, well, whatcha know?  It was OBSIDIAN ORDER.  Ha ha ha ha!  Ooh, I'm 
frightfully impressed, DRAGO KAZOV was this turn's most challenged warrior.  Watch 
that ego swell, sports fans.  I guess I can give a little credit to INANNA of TOKEN 
ENTRY for challenging up by 19 to OFF TO SEE THE....  INANNA lost to get 44 points of 
recognition.   
     Death and Taxes.  The less death I see, the more it taxes my patience.  Let's 
see if anyone's dead or dying.  Not that I'll be buying the drinks, but I'll be glad 
to see KANA BALLISTIC and DEVIATION at The Dripping Blade tonight celebrating their 
bloodfeud victory over VENDETTA.  A big yahoo goes out to BENGAL this turn, for 
revenging BLOOD MAGIC's bloodfeud against NEW VENGEANCE's warrior FALLEN ANGEL.  Heh, 
heh, heh.  Honor is like a chainmail shirt, it only shines through use.  Certain 
nameless cowards will doubtless rebuke me on this one.   
     There's got to be a better place in TEMPLE OF ABARSIS to get a drink than The 
Dripping Blade!  Any suggestions?  Just wait 'till next time I show up here, I won't 
be so nice!  So nyaaah!  Paste this one in your scrapbooks, you'll need the kindling 
come this winter-- Snide Clemens

All -- Team The Bizzarr declares its alliance with team Torpunz captianed by Dark
Angel of Black lightning in the Turf Wars. -- Luudo, mgr The Bizzarr

Hey, fellow COMMPers.  Great start!  Crip, kudos on the 14 point top-scoring team!
Le Pentarque, congrats on the only 5-0!  Me and The Mun and Mannequin will just ride
along.  Hubba, hubba! -- Oz The All Excited

Kiss Of Death -- You mean monster, you!  Why, you ruined my team's perfect record.
Just because you are better than I am is no excuse.  Nope. -- Broomstick, Land Of Oz

Anje and Sheldon, or any All-Stars for that matter, let's NOT do that again. --
Golden Cap and Off To See the... Land Of Ozers

TNT, wow! -- Quadling, Land Of Oz

Nin Quire -- You were there.  I needed it.  I had to have it.  It's mine! -- Basket,
Land Of Oz (Or is that basket-case?)

Greetings, Mambo.  What happened to your token entry?  And, howdy, Unnaturals.  Will
Tripwire ever get a full team?  A salute to LOLs.  A solid start which didn't leave
me lol.  And you Catalysts.  A losing overall record, yet positive points and
starting fifth place.  Kudos.  Salutations, Torpunz.  Were the titans too big for
their britches?  Yo, Club Fed.  Stick it out.  You guys will be tough.  A hip, hip to
All Under Heaven, showing that solo is not lasto.  And Arranghal's Lawnkeepers -- hi.
Let's leave it at my doubting you will stay in that spot for long.  There is much
more to come. -- Oz The All Welcoming

LP -- Not to put pressure on you, but 10-0 is a reasonably acceptable start for a
rookie.  Yep. -- Oz The All Stimulative

Turf War Moderators:  The Turn 296 newsletter says I need to declare, but I declared
on Turn 295.  To repeat:  Team: Obsidian Order, Manager: Skaven, Alliance: Club Fed,
Captain: Don Guido.  I will be participating in TW VII.  Thank you. -- Skaven

This confirms Grimm, managing Furry Fury as a member of Unnatural Alliance. --
Assurnasirbanipal

Norton -- Well fought, I was trying different strats all through those minutes to try
to find what he likes.  Minute 2 looked decent for 1 swing but stood around more than
I expected. -- Archer

Quickspawn -- Man, you were hauling butt there, usually I get a swing in there
somewhere. -- Saladin

Twisted Thief -- Thieving doesn't pay!  Okay, maybe it does but still!  Nice fight.
-- Witch Doctor

Tulian Vorl -- Hey!  I can be punny!  I am sure you weren't talking about me being a
doctor and poking you with my long pointed spear in the buttock now were you?  (Calm
down people I was using a pun about a needle, A Needle I tell you!) -- Witch Doctor

All/Turf War Combatants -- So, Kaos disappeared into the depths of the abyss, retired
from the Temple; however, now the Furry arrives from the distant forests that
surround the great swamp.  Furry Fury wishes to declare to join the Turf War.  They
will join the Unnatural Alliance with its Captain Assurasirbanipal. -- Grimm

All -- I wish to declare Shiv Squirrel as my champion for this tournament. -- Grimm

Oz -- You should have received my two certs by now.  If any issues let me know. --
Grimm

Dark Angel -- Well, I guess that I have been a bit childish with the name calling.  I
bow to our fearless leader. -- Arkane

Shade -- Nice to see you on my side instead of facing me, weird? -- Arkane

Plauge -- Thanx fro the input. -- Arkane

Madwand -- Thank you for all the help with setting of my Turf War entry. -- Arkane

Dark Angel -- My ale will get warm, fine!  This better be worth it or you're buying
the next round. -- Arkane

Loudo -- I got nothing but love for you. -- Arkane

Rain -- You know things would have to change, rest in pieces! -- Arkane

Esteemed managers, gladiators, spectators -- It is Skaven, manager ofObsidian Order.
I am announcing my participation in Turf War VII.  Iam a member of Club Fed, led by
Don Guido of Beatnik Horde.  May the Commission pay heed to this announcement.  Oz
and Master Darque, youshould already have my certs. -- Skaven, Obsidian Order
P.S.  I declared on turn 295.  It was in the newsletter and I was confirmed by Don
Guido on the same turn.

Arkane -- It appears we are now even.  Good fight. -- Skaven

Luudo -- Tuums is a beast.  I would love to know how you run him so well. -- Skaven

All -- The Champion of Obsidian Order shall be Scotty Wow. -- Skaven

     "*** No warrior may be substituted without the proper use of the DA or arena
death or death in a tournament OR GRADUATION.  There must be a maximum of five only
on a team at any point and time.  (The penalty for such substitution is -10 points.)"
Please note that the capitalized "or graduation" was supposed to have been added to
the last rules posted but was not.  Nothing else was "missed" in the rules and an
updated version will be posted in the next newsletter. -- Oz The All Apologetic

Kana Ballistic -- Ever feel like you just have to bite your tongue? -- African Queen

Mandorallen -- While Crip considers this arena his home nowadays, it still doesn't
take away the fact that, like you, Lyratilan was his very first arena.  Back in the
days of Cryptics, Grecian Formula, Freaks of Nature, Carnival, Sir Vivors, Wiltzdom
Doom, Zarov Brothers, The Destroyers II, The Duelists, Bloodhawks,  Shadows of Chaos,
Conquistadors, Fantasia Isle and The Stench.  Ahh, those were the days. -- The Lion
King

Chabat -- Maybe you guys should go back to an arena where you can win a fight? -- Ace
Of Base, the upstart tart

Tornado -- Do you suck or do you blow?  I can't tell which. -- Tenth Inning

Ithyic Thing -- So that's why we have an I.T. department that rarely makes anyone
happy. -- Jack Knife

Vendetta -- That's exactly what we have here... a vendetta!  Hopefully you'll be
fighting next turn so my brethren can attempt to avenge my untimely death.... --
Ghost of Suicide Blind

Broomstick -- Looks like I swept you under the rug there! -- Kiss of Death

Agaric -- It was a pleasure getting to know each other last turn... shall we dance
again soon? -- Judgement Day

Endemic -- Thadly I lotht that contetht. -- Thadithtic Lithper

African Queen -- Congrats on your ascension to the throne.  I'll be looking for a
rematch soon! -- Kana Ballistic

Team LOL -- Great showing during the first turn!  Keep up the good work... -- Marma
Duke

Juneau Dawning -- Next time stay down, won'tcha?  We'll need to do that again
(thanks, professor).  My boss gave me a bunch of Kraft Dinner in round four which
seemed to have upset my stomach... I'll have to remember to eat less next time. --
Dartanyon

Thadithic Lithper -- When they told me that you had made the challenge I was worried
that you might be a chatty fellow and spit all over me, you know, with your little
problem and all.  Don't worry about it though; folks tease me all the time.  "Shewish
Giant, more like my ant."  It gets tiring but you learn to deal.  Thanks for sticking
to business on the sands. -- Endemic

Captured Orc -- It seems like you've been locked up for quite some time.  One day I
sure all of North Folk would like to hear your story.  It couldn't have been that bad
considering what we do out here every month.  One of these days I think we need to
get a bunch of us so called warrior together and bust you out.  I'm sure the guards
aren't that tough. -- Gencon

Sandy Bear -- I wish you would show a little more skin, but from what I can tell you
have pretty, if not evil, eyes.  I'm honored that you were so eager to meet me.
We'll dance again. -- Rusty

Edax Rerum -- Redrum, redrum, redrum.  Apparently my showing against you was not
adequate to my manager.  What more could I have done???  Glad I taught you well.
This turn I fight at night.  Pray for me.  I bid you farewell. -- Bathsheba

Turf war notes -- I declare that as of this turn Dartanyon is no longer the champion
of Black Lightning.  Will advise if one is worthy at a future date. -- The
disappointed Dark Angel

Torpunz Alliance -- My apologies for the Dark Arena loss this turn.  Bathsheba came
back with an incredibly disappointing damage rating.  Dispite his win, I was not
impressed as that was going to be his only redeeming factor.  I should have waited,
but patience is not my strong suit.  I owe you boys 5 points or 4 beer, you pick. --
Dark Angel

Luudo -- Thanks for the support last turn, well done.  Let's hope you do that again.
-- Dark Angel

Plague -- Where the heck are ya?  Waiting to make a grand entrance?  Your golden
invitation is in the mail. (the printing of which is coming out of your cut) -- Dark
Angel

Shade, Arkane -- Better luck this turn, keep your head up, but make sure you're
wearing your helm. -- Dark Angel

Agoseris -- I could be mistaken, I guess. -- Earvling Klash

Succubus -- You pack quite a punch, but shouldn't you be an Incubus? -- Idalia

Bellum -- Quite the fight, my durable friend... -- Rime

Suicide Blind -- Ah spit, NOW I've gone and done it!  Rest in Peace, as I'm sure your
friends will see to me. *sigh* -- Vendetta

All right, Jorja, Looks like it's just you and me.  *wry grin*  Might as well see
what sort of mischief I can accomplish. -- Michael Eldritch

Club Fed -- I, Don Guido, captain of Club Fed, re-reconfirm Obsidian Order.
(Newsletter turn 295 Obsidian Order was already confirmed.)

Poke -- You sir, are very scary.  Hopefully I heal for the next fight. -- Thadius
Bantu

Basket -- urgh.  It's pinching wicker, I hate pinching wicker. -- Nin Quire
P.S.  My cradle was pinching wicker, and it marked me for life.

Limper -- Have you considered getting a specially built boot? -- Hilroc Ibbins

Talkeetna -- Um... I don't speak Alaskan?  I'm not in the pipeline?  Something like
that. -- Velma Xavil

Madfreeze -- Seasonal, at least.  Not fun, though.  I think winter stopped being fun
when I changed from "kid" to "parent." -- Tulain Vorl

Electrocution -- I think I'll pass on that one. -- Tia Relwan

Endemic -- Out of my shell?  As if!  It's dangerous out there!  No, seriously, the
odds of anyone giving me a calculated strategy change are minute. -- Nin Quire

Our congratulations to graduate Medee, and a salute to all the tourney participants.
-- Jorja and the Middle Way

Dartanyon -- For some reason I thought that you would be more dashing!  Oh well. --
Juneau Dawning

Velma Xavil -- You're not married to the German Fred Flintstone are you?  Thanks for
the confidence builder. -- Talkeetna

Ultima Regum -- I hate guys like you!  For a second there, I thought I might actually
pull it out in the end. -- Eureka Pride

Slim -- Now that was a big buzz kill!  I had you, and I let you slip away.  Back to
the drawing board. -- Iditarod Trail

Cave Canem -- Good fight!  My manager just gave me the MVP award for our team this
turn. -- Yukon Quest

Rain -- It pours. -- Kowalski

Mortimer -- We're an odd couple. -- Morgan

Fraid Knot -- You said a mouthful there. -- Luccio

P. Jardinia -- Nice fight!  Congrats on the nice start for L.T. -- Dresden

Will Helm Scream? -- Odds good with multiple stab wounds.  The ladies of North Fork
thank you for not killing me.  I'm fairly grateful as well. -- Carlos
