     The ground tore itself asunder, throwing magma and flame into the sky.  Dark 
smoke billowed forth from the gap and a lone figure emerged. 
     "I really have to stop temporal stormriding."  The figure cracked into thunderous 
laughter. 
     Blackstorm walked into the sun and brushed the dust from his black robes. "It 
seems..." he started to say, but was muffled by the sound of steel on steel and war 
songs, as all of Blackstorm's legions descended on Alastari.... again. 
     "Ahem," Blackstorm began again.  "Seems we found the duel grounds again.  Time to 
train before we return to face the great hordes of doom... again."  And again, he went 
into a fit of laughter.  "Let's see if the folk of North Fork still remember us."  
     And down the hill they went... right to the closest pub.
     And the rest will be history.

                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Greetings again!  I'm glad to see I'm still DM.  So glad I got my invite.  Now 
Spirit doesn't have to worry about me being gutted!  I'm the most talented he's had.  
Well, most bonused, at least. 
     For the curious few this is what I look like: 6(1)-9-7-21-9-12-21.  Poor/little.  
Luckily my fave weapon is a SC.  I seemed to do well with it regardless of my low 
strength.  I'm also +4 attack and +4 defense.  A bit knacky, too!  Gonna be awhile but 
I'll be busting out one of these days! 
     Not sure who I'll challenge this turn.  Good luck to whoever! 
     Later!
                                          -- Little Johnny

                                      SPY REPORT

     Ready for some action-packed adventure, some thrills, chills and spills?  Well 
fergit it, cause this is the Spyreport for FREEDOM FRIES LAND.  Uncool, MYSTIC ORC 
FEAST.  I mean 1-2-0 is bad.  Will they will be allowed to fight?  I say use 'em for 
training practice!  FAST FOOD like really fought hard to move up to 11th from 18th.  
Way to go!  One team deserves special mention 'cause they moved up 1 after going 
4-1-0.  Keep it up, WHITE SHADOW!  MVP award for REAPER?  THE HEATHENS' proud of him 
after beating OOKLA THE MOK and getting 19 points.  Talk about yer big time losers!  
OOKLA THE MOK got smashed by REAPER, and lost 12 points!  Like DARK ARENA's FOIE GRAS 
SWEETIE is sweating since he got Dark Arena Challenged by Duelmaster LIL JOHNNY!  The 
crowds were amazed this turn, as FOIE GRAS SWEETIE killed the Duelmaster, LIL JOHNNY, 
leaving D.A. REJECTS in mourning.  EGG NOGGIN gets to be new Duelmaster.  But doesn't 
this mean people might try to kill him, too?  Who was the wiseguy that said FREEDOM 
FRIES LAND's Duelmaster was paying for drinks at The Dripping Blade?  Don't look at 
me!   
     AAARRGH!!!  I HATE SPYREPORTING!!!  Sorry.  I just had to say it.  The warriors 
of WEIRD ALCHEMY must be getting lonely.  They were the most avoided team.  Do you 
guys know something that I don't?  Hhmph!  What kind of warriors are LAND OF OZ?  
WEIRD ALCHEMY, an easy team to beat if I ever saw one, can't get them to accept an 
invitation!  Can THE HEATHENS' BRAINOR be more popular than me?  He was challenged 
the most, but is that really the same?  Ooh!  Did DIAPER LEEK really know what she 
was doing when she challenged WENDY?  A 19-14-2 speaks volumes.  (Zontoni said that.  
I don't know what it means.) DIAPER LEEK lost to WENDY, but she got 1 points.  WENDY 
won, and got 12 points.  I don't get it.  See if I ever talk to EGG NOGGIN again!  
YRSA was so low when He challenged he.  Hhmph!  EGG NOGGIN beat YRSA.  No surprise 
about that.  Really I'm not surprised EGG NOGGIN would do such a scummy thing, 
either.  For sure, I was holding my breath when I found out ORESTES  challenged ODIN 
AVERSSON.  After all, haven't WHITE SHADOW and JOMSVIKINGS had a long standing duel 
in FREEDOM FRIES LAND?  It wasn't a spectacular fight, or anything, but ODIN AVERSSON 
wants me to write about it since he defeated ORESTES.  Satisfied?   
     Challenges, revenges, Bloodfeuds.  All FREEDOM FRIES LAND ever talks about is 
fighting!  Me, I'm more laid back.  I hear OTTODROME TW sent GOLD DUST to the Dark 
Arena.  What, is that like not well-lit, or what?  That was so totally rude when ALEC 
BALDWIN wasted PINHEAD.  I think all you warriors in FREEDOM FRIES LAND should gang 
up on MSNBC!  Like was that some Bloodfeud, or what?  (ALEC BALDWIN vs. PINHEAD, that 
is.) CONSTANCE really fought hard against AZUMANIAC.  That'll teach WEIRD ALCHEMY not 
to go and kill any of GARDEN STEWARDESS' guys again, huh!  What if they had a fight 
and nobody showed up?  I'd be out of a job, that's what!!!   
     Remember, blood on a purple robe may stain.  Soak it in cold water, and hand 
wash.  I know how much you like reading this stuff, but I really should stop.  I had 
a fun time, see you later-- Debby Tonte

   The Turf Wars are coming. The Turf Wars are coming. Come one; come all. Gather

your alliance or collection of 2-4 teams and join in the competition. Hurry up! While 
Feb 2016 seems so far away, it is only six or so turns away, and it does take a while 
to make sure you have a team in DM47, communicate to find a group, send in certs, 
announce in writing in DM47, etc. etc. Teams of all levels and managers of all types, 
including newbies, find themselves competing quite well in this type of competition. 
Let's make the tenth anniversary (TWX) the biggest and best ever.
     This 10th competition will be hosted and moderated by the triumvirate of Assur, 
Master Darque and Oz The All-Wonderful.    
     Anyone may participate: known alliances, new alliances, or temporary alliances 
created solely to compete in the Turf War!  

To participate, each alliance must:
    a.  Announce the Captain of the alliance in the North Fork (DM 47) newsletter.
    b.  Indicate in the newsletter which Captain/alliance you will join.
    c.  Announcements made on the D2 Forums or elsewhere will not be accepted.

Captains are responsible for:
    a.  Verifying/authorizing, in the North Fork newsletter those who wish to 
        participate under the banner of their alliance. The confirmation/verification 
        must occur after, or in the same newsletter, but not before, the participant's 
        declaration. (Lack of participant indication of joining and/or subsequent lack 
        of Captain confirmation will delay a team's participation in the Turf War.)
    b.  Distribution of prizes should their alliance win the Turf War.
    c.  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:
    a.  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.)
    b.  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 or Chatzy will not be accepted.
        1.  No scores will be tabulated until two RSI Gift Certificates are received, 
            and participant indication and captain confirmation are posted in the 
            North Fork newsletter. NO EXCEPTIONS.
        2.  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 same or 
            subsequent newsletter by the alliance Captain they will represent.
        3.  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).
        4.  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.
        5.  No declarations or verifications will be accepted after Turn 3 of the Turf 
            War.

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:

Team Points:
    a.  Fights made: (includes DA fights) 
            1 = 0 points,  2 = 0 points,  3 = 1 point,  4 = 3 points,  5 = 5 points
    b.  Wins earned: 
            1 = 1 point,  2 = 3 points,  3 = 6 points,  4 = 10 points,  5 = 15 points
    c.  Champion win = 3 additional points 
    d.  Down Challenge = (-5) points each (DM is exempt from DC rule)
    e.  Team with most wins per round earns 4 additional points
            (If ties, no points awarded)

Alliance Points (Rounds 1 through 5):
    a.  Fights made (DA fights count as a fight made)
            All (each) team of the alliance fights 1 to 3 warriors = 3 points
            All (each) team fights 4+ warriors = 6 points
            All (each) team fights all five warriors = 9
    b.  Alliance with most wins per that round = 5 points
            (If tied, no points awarded.)

Alliance Points (Rounds 6 through 10 as alliance point scoring doubles):
    c.  Fights made (DA fights count as a fight made)
            All (each) team of the alliance fights 1 to 3 warriors = 6 points
            All (each) team fights 4+ warriors = 12 points
            All (each) team fights all five warriors = 18
    d.  Alliance with most wins per that round = 10 points
    e.  (If tied, no points awarded.)
   
Champions:
    a.  A Champion may be declared, but one is not mandatory. It is to the 
        team's/alliance's advantage that you do so.
    b.  Only one Champion allowed per manager at any given time.
    c.  Champions that graduate or are killed by another warrior or the Dark Arena, 
        may be replaced.
    d.  Champions must have fought at least one previous fight in the North Fork (DM47 
        arena) to be able to be declared a champion. 
    e.  A Champion can be declared on any round and point factors will begin that same 
        turn. (Must meet above 4 conditions prior to declaring.)
    f.  Challenges to or by Champions against members of the same alliance shall be 
        scored as a loss for each warrior.

     No warrior may be substituted without the proper use of the DA or arena death or 
death in a tournament or graduation. A maximum of five warriors may be on a team at 
any time. (The penalty for such substitution is -10 points.) 

     It is not in the spirit of competition to challenge fellow members of the same 
alliance. Hence, challenges as such will be scored as losses for both warriors.

Downchallenges:
    a.  A downchallenge occurs when a warrior challenges a warrior with lesser 
        recognition points. 
    b.  No challenge or bloodfeud by The Duelmaster shall be deemed a downchallenge. 
    c.  No challenge of the Duelmaster shall be deemed a downchallenge.
    d.  Bloodfeuds against warriors with lesser recognition are deemed downchallenges.

Tournament Considerations:
    a.  Tournament participation is allowed and ENCOURAGED as a great form of 
        recognition for North Fork.
    b.  It is an opportunity to gain skills and preferred challenging within the Turf 
        War.

Special Considerations:
    a.  Each alliance begins the Turf War with zero (0) points.
    b.  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.
    c.  There will be a maximum of four (4) teams/managers allowed per alliance for 
        the Turf War VII. The minimum is two (2).
    d.  The Dark Arena may be used at any time without penalty.
    e.  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.  All prizes, except the 
Endu Award listed below, 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.  
     The following prizes have been secured from RSI:
        a.  Renaming of the North Fork (DM 47) arena;
        b.  Renaming of all Dark Arena Monsters 
        c.  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).
        d.  +1 Skill bonus (three) for each manager on the winning alliance.  Bonus 
            potions must be applied to living warriors from DM 47, no more than two 
            skills per warrior.
        e.  +1 Skill bonus potion (one) for each and every individual manager who 
            fights in all 10 rounds AND at least 45 fights of the Turf War.  Bonus 
            potion must be applied to a living warrior from (DM 47) (Endu Award).
        f.  Two additional random rollup sheets or 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.

     The Moderators for this event will be Oz, Master Darque, and Assur (the TWX 
Triumvirate), They will arbitrate all dealings during the course of the contest.
