                  TWX PRE-EVENT UPDATE and COMMUNICATION (12-16-15)
       ONE, only one, MORE NEWSLETTER BEFORE THE START OF TWX!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

     After the last DM47 newsletter (T362 on 12-15-15), the following is the current 
status of entrants in TWX.  Updates are also posted regularly on the RSI site under 
Turf Wars.

     There is much yet to be done.  Some managers and teams are not yet declared.  
Quite a few certs yet are awaited.  One alliance (Mercenaries) is looking for 
teammates.  ONLY ONE MORE TURN and newsletter before the start of TWX!  You need to 
act now!  Maybe yesterday.

     Remember, it takes four things to make an entry.  All must be strictly done for a 
team to be scored in the TWX.

a.  Get yourself a team in DM47.
b.  Announce the alliance in the DM47 newsletter. (code: AN)
c.  Each team manager declare (in the DM47 newsletter) for an alliance. Include the 
    team and manager name. (code: MD)
d.  Each team manager have two certs submitted in his/her name. (Have them sent to OZ 
    or The Consortium.) (code: CE)  

So get with it, folks. Let's just "do it"!

     The following is the status of all TWX alliance groups with a summary first:

-- There are 5 alliances completely registered. FRODO, ATX, AA, AM, PANGEA
-- There are 3 very close (only 1 or 2 action items) CDOOM, TEABAG, M*MBO
-- There are 4 in process (3+ items to go) TWC, IC, GLS, "INTL"
-- There is  1 advertising for alliance mates.

Yet needed from the twelve are: 1 alliance name, 7 manager declarations and 12 sets of 
certifications.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Oh, hi.  Its just little 'ol Debby Tonte.  Thought I'd check out NORTH FORK to 
see what's new.  Like, DEATHLY HALLOWS had to be so embarrassed when they got kicked 
off #1 spot by NATURAL B. KILLERS 2!  Way to go NATURAL B. KILLERS 2!  I couldn't 
believe it.  Did DEITYS OF CHAOS really go up by 12?  If only those guys didn't have 
so may missing teeth...  Gross!  Cut this out and put it in your scrapbooks, LAND OF 
OZ!  'Cause they got 3-1-0 and moved up to 4th!  MVP award for LAUGHING LUNATIC?  
A'MERKIN INJUNS' proud of her after beating BARSTOOL 5 and getting 29 points.  Talk 
about yer major upsets!  BARSTOOL 5's match with LAUGHING LUNATIC cost it a loss of 
24 points!  Don't you think the Duelmaster is being unfair?  I think ASP should let 
QUEEN OF THE SOUTH be Duelmaster for a while, without fighting about it.  I hear the 
top team insists all their warriors get nine hours sleep.  They want photogenic 
fighters for PR photos.   
     AAARRGH!!!  I HATE SPYREPORTING!!!  Sorry.  I just had to say it.  OTTODROME TW 
was NORTH FORK's most avoided team.  Is there some award for that?  Hhmph!  What kind 
of warriors are THE WILD HUNT?  OTTODROME TW, an easy team to beat if I ever saw one, 
can't get them to accept an invitation!  Like, is SILK popular, or what?  He was 
challenged the most in all of NORTH FORK!  He's got a 5-6-0, is that good?  People 
were asking me did LION REALLY challenge BUGS?  (all right, maybe they didn't, but it 
sounded good!) It wasn't a spectacular fight, or anything, but BUGS wants me to write 
about it since he was defeated by LION.  Satisfied?   
     What does a fighter fight for?  I mean, the crowds don't give a hoot if someone 
gets killed.  Not after four more fights.  I'm always kinda bummed when a decent 
warrior gets killed.  SS GUARD, of NATURAL B. KILLERS 2 had a 8-5-0 when he got 
bumped off by DRONE A1.  EGG NOGGIN bloodfeuded (is that a word?) HARRY SLAUGHTER for 
revenge over some guy's bad fortune.  Was it really worth it?  RON WE SLAY really 
fought hard against PHAROS.  That'll teach WHITE SHADOW not to go and kill any of 
DEATHLY HALLOWS' guys again, huh!  Like was that some Bloodfeud, or what?  (QUICK 
SAND vs. AMIINANY DANGER, that is.) What if they had a fight and nobody showed up?  
I'd be out of a job, that's what!!!   
     I really didn't, you know, study when I was a kid.  Who would've guessed I'd be 
a famous Spyreporter?  I know how much you like reading this stuff, but I really 
should stop.  Its been really albendranius!  Later, guys-- Debby Tonte

This is The Chosen One (TCO) (A'merkin Injuns) declaring my intention to fight 
alongside The Inner Circle in the Turf Wars.

Congrats to Duelmaster Asp and graduating Lord Protectors Asp and Egg Noggin/ Big Time 
Guys! -- Oz The All Jealous

My, my; Deeders is surely getting lots of flack from the AA (Angry Anti-people) group. 
Perhaps it is mere jealousy that Deeders is now an alliance captain?  After all, few 
make it to AA captain, and fewer still would want it. -- Oz The All Observing

48 Teams! 12 Alliances!  Maybe 13?!  This will be a big one.  It is sad that there can 
be only one winner, FRODO, of this big time affair.  Oh, well, the eleven alliance 
losers can always join AA for their kicks. -- Oz The All Expecting

Mannequin are they (the Angry Anti-people) jealous of you and your fortune cookies, 
too? -- Oz The All Questioning

Jenna, you cute little bimbo, nice challenge and nice loss.  I will help you get to 
The Emerald City since you were so kind to give me a win. -- Lion

Crapulodan, my tarot cards say you were the winner, I know it was such a surprise. -- 
Crystal Ball

Granolo, that was fun.  I eat things like you for breakfast. -- Golden Cap

Sir Killalot, run, run, run, as fast as you can.  You can't kill me.  I'm the Munchkin 
man. -- Munchkin

Den, your comments, meanly discouraging a newby from entering the TWX, were out of 
order.  One up all you want, but take the inappropriate stuff to The Big N, where you 
can apparently say anything you want. -- Oz The All Enforcing

See y'all at The Face.  Hope y'all had some fine Holidays.  May the force be with you. 
-- Oz The All Hopeful
P.S. Please pray for all those in the AA.  They need all they can get.

Health. Humility. Honor. -- The Consortium Elders

Floyd, my man, I am certainly pleased to see that DM78 allowed you to transfer El 
Camino: Hot Sauce here.  DM47 surely needs some Hotties. -- Oz The All Knowing

REMINDER  REMINDER  REMINDER (Don't be penalized!)
Participants in TWX MAY NOT have any additional team active in DM47.  Inappropriate 
outside influence from non-TWX teams is watched for and penalized.  Teams missing 
declarations and/or certs will not be scored. -- Oz The All Informative

I will be entering the TW as part of Scorpio's alliance. -- Keyoke, mgr Beyond the 
Wall

Turf War Participants -- We have arranged with RSI to do LIVE scoring.  What this 
means:
- The scoring report in the newsletter will not be 'official.'  We have to turn that 
report around too fast to ensure accuracy.  But since the report is more or less 
automated, it should be correct and allow us to have the scores up to date with the 
current newsletter.
- Announcements in the ads (or spotlights) will very likely NOT be included in the 
'live' report.  We will post in the RSI online forums the official scores and those 
scores will be reflected in the next turn's report, but champ declarations will most 
likely have delayed impact on the scores.
- Finally, if you let Assur know in advance, he can include the declarations in the 
scoring report 'before' seeing the ads.  Most likely the ads will not be available for 
the generated report.  Feel free to cc or forward him personal ads sent via email.  
Thanks, -- Assur (for the TW moderators)

Greetings all.  I will be participating in the upcoming Turf War with the KGGP 
alliance, along with Khisanth, Grimm and Le Pentarque.  My team is Weird Alchemy.  
Good luck to all. -- La Guillotine.

Greetings, Citizens and Managers of North Fork!  My name is Lord Scorpio, and I am 
pledging myself and my team into the Turf Wars!  Since I am acting alone, I am 
entering as an individual mercenary and am searching for at least two other managers 
who are interested in conquest.  Please contact me soon! -- Lord Scorpio, mgr. 
Scorpions DM 11

Happy New Year!  The KGGP is back and I will have the honor to fight again in his 
glorious ranks with my team Les Turfistes.  Let's roll... -- LP

Den -- My pre-Turf War got off to a promising start when I killed Lom Lackluster in 
the Apprentices tourney.  I celebrated my tourney success by going out to dinner.  The 
message in my fortune cookie actually read, "Congrats on kicking Den's *** once 
again!" -- Mannequin

Yrah -- Let me get this straight, you ask about why I am still here, and then go out 
and make a 49 point down-challenge?  It doesn't seem like you should be passing 
judgement on anyone!  Just accept that we are here now and try to deal with it! -- The 
Pitchfork kid

Smithsonian -- Perhaps Sitting Bull did deserve better.  "Peasant" is not a term 
usually applied to his people, but they are certainly a part of the under-class.  But 
when elitists who pilfer the treasures of the people to stick in their collections 
force one to fight, then fight they must.  Bring back Mayflower and I would be happy 
to express my opinions to him personally instead of to the seated one. -- Torchbearer 
Tom

Punk Chilsner -- Nice try.  You almost had me.  Even with that loss your team name 
seems a bit misapplied.  Do not let anyone convince you that you are "born" anything.  
Victory is within your grasp whatever those who are born to more choose to tell you.  
Well, not against me, but you get the idea. -- The Kid

Eton the Stalwart -- Truly you are fairly stalwart.  But not enough when the Cossacks 
get angry! -- Pugachev

Ground Sheet -- Uhm, interesting name.  With that talent, why fight as a mercenary?  
You can be your own boss!  Let us make that world a reality!  There are torches 
aplenty for all who shall join the cause! -- Torchbearer Tom

Cutter Crites -- Read what the Kid wrote to Punk.  'nough said.  My club is as good as 
anyones. -- Clyde

Oz -- Thank you for your help.  You are both wise and generous.  May the gods bless 
your weapons. -- Wednesday

Crip -- Perhaps you could see your way to offering the history of this Turf War?  I 
would truly be interested. -- Wednesday

Moondog -- Typically my manager is the leader of the Wild Hunt, especially this time 
of year.  Well fought, though. -- Mr Nancy

White Wizard -- That was some spell you cast... it's as though I knew not what my 
weapons were for! -- Shadow

Dwarka -- An unexpected victory for me; I hope to not meet you again! -- Low Key

Stink Face -- I'm glad you chose such a puny weapon; I've never won a fight without 
swinging a single time! -- Czernobog

Den -- An unprovoked attack by implying lack of masculinity--how quaint!  I haven't 
witnessed such a tactic since grade school, and then, as now, it always struck me as a 
tactic used by one with a lack of intelligence.  Try something more witty next time, 
if you're capable of such a demonstration of intellect.  For example:  You strike me 
as a Wigger who would prefer to puff his chest like a pretty peacock, profering his 
plumage, rather than prove his manhood on the sands in an actual battle.  See?  Much 
more direct, yet creates a visual.  I'll be here for the duration. -- Wednesday

To those whom have asked:  Scorpio, with teams in 11 and 33 and others, has sent in 
certs and is looking for teammates for TWIX. Contact him. -- Oz The All Helpful

I am declaring for the TW, Gas Monkey and champion Vicky Mendoza will be fighting with 
the Great Lakes Syndicate. -- Stillgard

We would like to declare Del Icious as our champion. -- Garbage Pail Kids

A Serpents Hold team (not yet in this arena) will be joining KGGP for the upcoming 
Turf War! -- Khisanth

Wednesday -- Don't worry if you don't get a team.  I was in this thing last year and I 
can tell you from experience that it's tough to win.  The managers with a lot of 
experience dominate.  Good luck to all TWXers. -- Master Fox

To all experienced managers -- I am looking to up my Duelmasters game and require some 
sage tutelage.  I have no access to a computer so this must be done analog-style 
thorough Diplos.  I'm counting on you North Fork leaders! -- Master Fox, mgr. Clan 
Kitfox (781)

Den -- I find your wit to be sharp, however, it is also a bit too ascerbic.  Relax, 
and stop being such a troll. -- The fun loving Master Fox

I Otis, Manager of the Cheers stable, declare myself a willing participant in the 
upcoming Turf War under the Clockwork Doom banner. Beers and shots for everyone on The 
Consortium's tab.

I am declaring A'merikin Injuns as a member of the Inner Circle alliance for the Turf 
War. -- The Chosen One

A Serpents Hold team (coming this turn) will be joining KGGP for the upcoming Turf 
Wars! -- Khisanth

                              NEW NOVEL:  "BLOOD GAMES"

Hail Gladiatorial Managers of Alastari,

     My name is Mark G. Manley, AKA Grimwood, author of the Duel 2 novel, "Dark 
Arena."  The RSI staff and I are pleased to announce the next novel in the Duel 2 
reality, "Blood Games."  A publisher has offered a contract to publish the novel and 
I'll continue to provide detailed updates as they become available.  However, I wanted 
to share a quick blurb about the novel.

                                        * * *

     WAR!
     The land of Alastari is thrown into chaos caused by the invasion of the Rirorni 
horde.  Swept up in the conflict and captured is My-re, a young girl living on the 
edge of the Rirorni plains.  Regarded as a spoil of war and growing up in a Rirorni 
family band, her troubles just begin as warlords within the Rirorni Empire fight each 
other for prestige, property, and personal honor.  For mutual protection, My-re is 
taught the family band's Wall of Steel combat style, where if executed correctly, no 
blade, no weapon, no arrow can penetrate.
     In a land where life is dangerous, brutal, and short, My-re is confronted by a 
prominent Rirorni warrior and kills him in self-defense.  She is sold to a Rirorni 
slaver after being found guilty of murder, and exiled back to her native land of 
Alastari.  However, there is no happy reunion, no joyful return, as she is sentenced 
to fight in the Blood Games arena for her crime.
     My-re's one chance of freedom resides in winning the Blood Game tournament.  But 
the champion is not declared by besting your opponents, but by slaughtering them.

                                        * * *

     As with novel "Dark Arena," I worked with RSI to write and publish "Blood Games" 
in the Duel 2 world of Alastari.  But it will always be known as Duelmasters to me.
     I wanted to share a little bit of background about myself, I started my first 
team back on turn 12 in Niania (Arena #2) on February 13, 1990.  I managed a team 
called Wolverines.  The next summer at Gen Con, I started my main team, Skull Squadron 
in Rocanis (Arena #56).  The following summer at Gen Con, I stared Legion of Death, in 
Valamantis (Arena #62).  Twenty-five years later, I've graduated numerous warriors, 
which would not be an easy feat to count.
     Good luck on the arena sands and more to come.

                                          -- Mark G. Manley
                                             AKA Grimwood
