     My name is Myrddin.  I'm the manager of the Pendragon Clan and personal advisor
to the Ard-Ri.  Congratulations on your victory, my King.  The Clan Pendragon hails
from Dyfed.  Somehow, while sailing in the fog toward Avalon, for 'tis home of the
Durids, we got lost.  When the fog parted, we found ourselves here at North Fork.
While the High-King himself and Lythar's brother, Lothar, landed at Niatoli Island
(DM-33) with the rest of our party.  Quickly realizing that these strange new lands
hold tournaments of valor, honor, and courage, the Ard-Ri decreed that we pit our
wills against the warriors of these lands until we can return to Dyfed and Avalon or
the summerlands call us home.  So I bid you hail and well met.  Long live the King!

                     ANNOUNCING TURF WAR VIII; DM47; JULY 2012

     Don't miss the premier event in all Alastari!  Gather an alliance.  (2 to 4
managers).  Select a captain.  Send in your entry fee(certs).  Prepare your warriors.
The competition, the acclaim, and the prizes await.
     The Turf War is expected to bring ten or more teams to battle.  The competition
is fierce.  Only one Alliance can win TW8.  Will it be yours?

                                 *TURF WAR 8 RULES*

                          Starting July 30 2012 (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 arena multiple teams
or aliases will be allowed.  Violations will result in immediate manager
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 3 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
Challenge (up or within same class) +2     -2     +5       -5
Down Challenge "Challenger"         -2     -2     -5       -5
Down Challenge "Challenged"         +2      0     +5       -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***                                        -3
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,
    ** Champions double applies to his score only -- not to opponent.
    *** 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.)
Points awarded for team tournament participation are 1 for 1 entrant, 3 for 2
entrants, 6 for 3 entrants, 10 for 4 entrants, and 15 for 5 entrants.  A TV scores 7
points or a TC scores 15 points.  Death in a tournament results in a -3 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:
Full Team:                                        +1
      1. A team which fights 4+ warriors (Includes DAing) gets a point
Full Alliance                                     +1
2. An alliance were ALL teams get a Full Team point earns a point
Full Team/Alliance scores 
      3. Will double for the last half (6 rounds) of TW8.
Style Master:                                     +2
      1. No matter how many stylemasters, an individual team can score only +2 per
         round 
Duelmaster:                                       +2
      1. Duelmaster points shall be earned separate of stylemaster points.

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.
        3.  To score as a bloodfeud, then feud/death must have occurred totally
within the TW8.  (E.g. Feuds created prior to TW8 will not be deemed or scored as a
bloodfeud, but rather as a challenge or downchallenge.

Downchallenges:
        1.  A downchallenge occurs when a warrior challenges a warrior in a lower
class.  (Lower class is defined as lower than the identical class.  (E.g. A
challenger champion class challenging a champion class is a down challenge.)
        2.  In TW8 a standard challenge is up (in recognition points), parallel or
within the identical class but lower recognition.
        3.  No challenge by The Duelmaster shall be deemed a downchallenge.  (This
rule supersedes all other downchallenge rules.)

Tournament Considerations:
        1.  Tournament participation is allowed and ENCOURAGED as a great form of
recognition for North Fork.
        2.  Tournament Victors won during the course of the contest will gain a one
(1) time bonus of 7 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 15 points.  This bonus will apply EACH time a warrior(s) win such
status.
        4.  Points awarded for tournament participation are 1 for 1 entrant, 3 for 2
entrants, 6 for 3 entrants, 10 for 4 entrants, and 15 for 5 entrants.  A TV scores 7
points additional or a TC scores 15 points additional.  Death in a tournament results
in an additional -3 score.
        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 300, points will be credited on North Fork
turn 301 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 four (4) teams/managers allowed per alliance
for the Turf War VII.  The minimum is two (2).
        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 meant to be a "winner takes all" contest.  However, for TW8, 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 week.)
     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, and two additional for the captain of the alliance).
        3.  Known Favorites for one DM47 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 (three) for each manager on the winning alliance.  Bonus
potions must be applied to living warriors 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)
        6. Two additional rollup certs for each manager of the winning alliance from
RSI.
     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 note there have been rule changes from the last Turf War.  Please read them
carefully!

This contest will begin in late July 2012 following the Summer FTF.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Thankyouthankyou.  It's great for me, The Unknown Spymaster to be back in NORTH 
FORK.  Hope you enjoy the show.  Oh, who am I kidding?  I already got paid!  We now 
have a new top team for all of you guys to dogpile on.  VEGAN CANNIBALS now holds the 
crown and they are betting they can keep it.  Rising in the ranks like a loaf of 
armored bread (okay, I admit it's corny) is GLORY DISCIPLES, who swept up 12 places 
in the ranks.  Suffering under a 1-1-0 record and dropping from 5th to 16th place 
were the PALINDROMES.  Keep trying!  It looks like the guys(?) at OTTODROME TW had a 
good week as they went 3-1-0 to put them in 3rd place.  I guess steroids help!  Hey 
everybody, watch out for DEI-MAN, who flew up 26 points in the rankings after mashing 
FENCE like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  And falling like a basher in the top 
ten was WILHELM SCREAM, who dropped 17 points after a disappointing (to say the 
least) bout with YUKON QUEST.  Well here's a duelmaster that doesn't sit back and say 
'Challenge me'!  GIZMO made a challenge against SALAD SLAYER this week.  In front of 
all the crowds, SALAD SLAYER took the Duelmaster's crown for his own.  I give the bum 
two weeks.  4 out of 5 gladiators surveyed protect the body, so try and avoid aiming 
at that location.   
     Here is other news that is of note.  And hey, kiddies, those of you who didn't 
avoid ROYAL FLUSH, please raise you hand.  Wow.  Does NORTH FORK really have that 
many liars?  And you guys like to boo me?  Well, unsling your rasberries, cause 
DARQUE FORCES beats feet every time ROYAL FLUSH smiles at them.  Try farming, eh?  
Well just about everybody wants a piece of RUSTY, who was this week's most challenged 
warrior.  Challenging down 17 points was BIG MAC.  Pretty soon he'll be using two 
shields and selling 'T.P.:  The only way to clean up' pins.  I just want to 
congratulate ENDEMIC on beating BIG MAC.  He overcame his superior-ranked opponent 
and gained 19 points.  Congrats!  Well, it looks like XANDER MANX wasn't happy with 
last turn's rank, so he went for broke by challenging up 29 points.  No guts, no 
glory.  Trading many whacks on the head and a loss for 1 recognition points, XANDER 
MANX shows that a guy doesn't have to be good to get places.  In a touching display 
by a 'touched' warrior, THE HUNTRESS went after DONETO, who was higher by 19 points.  
Well, when the dust settled, THE HUNTRESS was bested by DONETO.   
     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 20-20-1 PARTY TRAP was sent to 
the Dark Arena.  I know a lot of fighters with similar records who might take notice 
of this.  IRON LEGION has one more week to get their bloodfeud off.  I talked to the 
manager, but he could only grunt 'TENSILE who?'.  Ya gotta luv em!  Ask not the elves 
for counsel, for they will say both yes and no.  Silly buggers, eh?   
     Well, that wasn't too bad; Alarond told me that the people in NORTH FORK have no 
sense of humor.  Or maybe that they were senseless.  C'mon, Leadfoot, let's make some 
tracks.  Its been real, and its been fun, but it hasn't been real fun...-- The

Eureka Pride -- Thanks for the challenge.  I gladly take it for a chance at the
throne!  Just need to survive the next two weeks to join you on the Isle of the Eye!
Congrats. -- Party Trap

Tenth Inning -- I have no patience to wait so long.  Catch me earlier and I'll be
much more accommodating.  But to expect me to be nice after 9 innings is just too
much! -- Boob

Looks like the top ranks are clearing out in advance of the next Turf War.  Should be
very interesting if the graduations continue!  Congrats to all the grads (especially
mine). -- Assur

Turf War 8 is coming.  Hold onto your hats!  Gather your 4-manager teams!  The end of
July is quickly approaching! -- Oz The All Excited

Mummy's Boy -- For a pansy, you fought well.  By the way, who's your daddy? -- Zeke

Thundercracker -- You'll need a far better weapon and many more skills to get through 
my chain links. -- Fence

Talkeetna -- Who'd have thought THAT.  Perhaps broomsticks are in? -- Broomstick

Ding dong, the wicked Perretho is defeated. -- Ding Dong

Hey!  Congrats to Master Darque for Gizmo's Duelmaster Crown.  Kudos! -- Oz The All
Covetous

Great DM Columns, Stormlord.  Well done.  It is also great to see your godlings
graduate and get outta here! -- Oz The All Stimulating

Glory Disciples -- A rough one.  Some days you get the bear; some days the bear gets
you.  Stay the course; you have it in you! -- Oz The All Encouraging

Hoping to see some of you guys at The Philly Face! -- Oz The All Traveling

Health.  Humility.  Honor.  North Fork is calling.... -- Oz The All Loyal

Practical Gene -- Who ever thought you'd look up to the victor. -- Mississippi Queen

Bradly Gore -- Wow!   What a rise up the ranks.   Step carefully as the vultures have
a tendency to circle. -- Jack B. Nimble, but Jack Not Quick

Rusty -- That's a message to your teammate for avoiding me. -- Ace Hardware

Gizmo -- Glad I could help you to the throne.  It's much like an October win -- Tenth
Inning

All -- Greeting, Eager Warriors!  From the Lost City of Gailmia come the Starchildren
Elite.  We are VERY new to Duel 2, so please be kind to us and help us learn.
(Looking for a mentor or 10!) -- Sir Rowynstar, mgr Starchildren Elite

Glory Disciples -- Wins are precious for my team so it's not like I actually feel
sorry for you.  That being said, many managers here will help you out if you ask.
Bad luck versus Club Fed last month. -- Vae Victua, In Qeternum

Tofu Warrior -- Perhaps you could go running with me.  Get some conditioning, last a
little longer. -- Ultima Regum

Glory Disciples -- I did not intend for Marcus to die.  Our fight experience was
matched.  I honor the dead. -- Wrath

Stormlord -- I never would have guessed Khan would win, let alone kill someone.  You
and your team has my regrets and condolences.  I salute Denali Peak. -- Skaven

All -- I am looking forward to the Turf War.  I hope my team is not peaking too
early.  I shall do my best to make a good showing.  Good luck to all. -- Skaven

Wrath -- Lugh tipped his helm to you in Turn 311's match-up; you hewed thru his Parry
defensive.  But your down challenge with Marcus... (tsk, tsk, tsk) methinks thou dost
be but a mere prize fighter.  For that, we of the Glory Disciples throw the gauntlet
at your feet, vow BLOODFEUD, and wager amongst ourselves first to make prize of your
head.  Hope you've studied your Clausewitz. -- Noble Discord, mgr. Glory Disciples

Wrath -- You whooped on the mighty nor'easter (7548), then put down the hound of
havoc (7545)....  Ready or not, here comes both of me:  the half-crazy Andorian half-
elf. -- Bro'tor (7546, Glory Disciples gladiator)

Drago Kasov -- Good job pullin' thru on that one.  But that seemed to be the extent
of *you*, huh?  Yeah... I'll be back for you (...heh, heh, heh).  Just don't be
duckin' the ruckus I'm 'bout to bring. -- Bro'tor

Tactic Aeger -- [re: Turn 311]  I'm not the brightest.. actually, I'm not even
bright; so help me figure this one:  our fight starts, I step toward you, must've
slipped in something, launched forward, buried my weapon in your gut, end of fight.
I learned squat, and you learned a defensive action?  I gotta pay more attention. --
Bro'tor

Gluttony -- I commend your Obsidian Order manager's use of the *wish to fight*
option.  You weathered the storm that my blind date strategy was set for.  I can
appreciate that.  I can also appreciate that now I know who you are and what you're
about. -- The mighty nor'easter (7548, Glory Disciples gladiator)

Wrath -- [re: Turn 311]  Wrath, Wrath, Wrath...  Now that I've felt your strength
(letting you get the jump, while opting for a parry defensive), soon you and I will
see how *you* fare in the raging storm of a vengeful nor'easter. -- 7548 (Glory
Disciples gladiator)

Ace Hardware -- [re: Turn 311]  Good challenge, lad.  I should've given ya a better
run'o-the-sands; but me manager tells me my profile says I'm supposed to be very
quick on my feet (a Dwarf?  Imagine that!), often avoiding seemingly helpless
situations.  Anyway, so me manager says to me, "Hey, Christos.  How 'bout this time
we set you up with a 1-8-1 dodge tactic?"  I says to him, "Okay, you're the boss."
Between you and me, I may have over-exaggerated me profile a wee bit. -- Christos
(Glory Disciples gladiator)

Dominus Nox -- Well met, Lord Night. -- Christos

Fence -- [re: Turn 311]  What can I say?  The style match was in my favor; but being
a random matchup, I was set a bit faster than I would've been had I been out looking
to tear a fence down.  Kudos for being a maximum security quality product. -- Dei-man
(Glory Disciples gladiator)

Canum Moerdart -- I don't know where across the Daggerspine Mts. that Christos had
time to learn Latin, but a woman coming at me with a long, sharp blade usually never
translates well....  You hamstrung me, then spanked me.  Really? -- Dei-man

Clan Pendragon has stables at North Fork (DM 47) and Niatoli Island (DM-33) so we
will not compete in this Turf War. -- Myrddin

Canum -- Thanks for the advice.  Maybe we'll circle the arena again. -- Xander

What a pleasant surprise.  Apparently my record keeping years ago left a bit to be
desired and Party Trap had 2 more PPs than I thought.  He graduates 18(1)-4-10-17-15-
10-11 B Norm/Good.  HI/VL MS.  Skills: 25/14/30/20/13/28.  With Party Trap's
departure, the Palindromes are moving to DM 73 to make room for new team which will
enter shortly before the Turf War. -- Assur

Glory Disciples -- Welcome to North Fork.  You chose a FINE arena to make your home!
Good luck and while I'm leaving for a bit, I will be back this summer! --
