And there you go, folks!  Turf War is officially underway!  Please note that scoring 
is "live" in the newsletter, but these scores are unofficial.  They should not deviate 
too much for the final scoring for the turn, but it is early and there are still kinks 
to work out in the system.  We hope, after a few turns, the live scoring will not 
deviate much (or any) from the final scoring.  Thanks to all the partcipants and good 
luck to each of you!

                             Notes from the arena champ.

Strength and Honour!  

'Tis indeed an honour to be on the throne of North Fork again although it could have 
waited one turn 'til the start of the TW.  This will be my second TW, my first was 
TW3.  Due to my current grad criteria I will not long be a part of this great contest 
for long, as the Isle is very close for me.  I wish my team and alliance the best of 
luck.  Sir Killalot will be the only warrior from TW3 after I'm gone; sadly, SS Guard 
was murdered last turn--he was a TW 3 veteran also.  

Anyway, I digress.  

I raise my sword to you all.  Spread the word of your god and slaughter the infidels 
in his name!

And say your prayers, for death and defeat come your way!

     So why do I have this bag over my head?  Because I am The Unknown Spymaster and 
I'm going to give you a spy report!.  Take a look at KAOS!'s act, as they have a 
4-1-0 week and gain 16 places in the team ranking.  What goes up, must come down.  
Watch out NORTH FORK!  CLAN KITFOX may fall on you as it crushes past the teams below 
it to fall on the 18th spot.  Rising in the ranks like a loaf of armored bread (okay, 
I admit it's corny) is SECOND BANANAS, who swept up 14 places in the ranks.  Take a 
look at HOWLIN MAD's act, as they have a 4-1-0 week and gain 14 places in the team 
ranking.  Rising in the ranks like a loaf of armored bread (okay, I admit it's corny) 
is WEIRD STUDENTS, who swept up 18 places in the ranks.  Take a look at SPECTRAL 
STEEL's act, as they have a 4-1-0 week and gain 16 places in the team ranking.  A 
seasoned team is steady in the lists.  But to BAD BEATS, which fell to 32nd, it's 
what you soak in before going to the Dark Arena.  Rising in the ranks like a loaf of 
armored bread (okay, I admit it's corny) is 80'S DISCO, who swept up 11 places in the 
ranks.  Suffering under a 1-4-1 record and dropping from 21st to 42nd place were the 
BIG LAKE MAULERS.  Keep trying!  A seasoned team is steady in the lists.  But to TEAM 
TOONS, which fell to 48th, it's what you soak in before going to the Dark Arena.  
GARBAGE PAIL KIDS is no joke as it posted a 4-1-1 week advancing from 14th place to 
7th place.  WEIRD STUDENTS seems to have it's eye on the top team spot, and if they 
continue having 4-1-0 weeks they may get it!  Hey everybody, watch out for JACK 
O'LANTERN, who flew up 77 points in the rankings after mashing LAUGHING LUNATIC like 
a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  And falling like a basher in the top ten was 
QUICK SAND, who dropped 19 points after a disappointing (to say the least) bout with 
DRONE A4.  What does the Duelmaster and Piltdown Man have in common?  They are both 
the most challenged apes in human history!  Heyheyhey!  Unlike most arenas, DEVOUT 
CHRISTIAN managed to get his challenge off against the 8-0-1 DRONE A1.  Going for the 
gusto and coming up with aught but bloody knuckles was TOLBINS HIVE A's DRONE A1, who 
was turned away from the Duelmastership by DEVOUT CHRISTIAN.  An apple a day keeps 
the doctor away, but an onion a day keeps T.P.s at bay.   
     Here is other news that is of note.  Did you hear that EL CAMINO:HOT SAUCE was 
most avoided team this week?  Well, knowing the personal hygiene of EL CAMINO:HOT 
SAUCE's warriors, I'm not surprised!  Okay, so I may not be funny, but catch SECOND 
BANANAS' act in the arena.  Those acrobats seem to be fairly deft at running from EL 
CAMINO:HOT SAUCE.  Was it guts or an overtaxed mental capacity that had MR. WOLF 
challenge up 40 points in the rankings to take on DEL ICIOUS?  A Carrion Bird 
Sellout:  MR. WOLF 13-13-0 fights DEL ICIOUS 12-3-0.  (BYOB) In a touching display by 
a 'touched' warrior, JENNA went after LION, who was higher by 22 points.  Well, when 
the dust settled, JENNA was overcame by LION.   
     Remember that an arena is not always a safe place to be, but it is one of the 
most interesting, though!  I have no doubt that GARBAGE PAIL KIDS will be celebrating 
long and loud their warrior FOUL BILL's slaying of GRRR on the sands.  We might as 
well mark the passing of FOE SHOW, who was relatively new to the arena at 3-2-0.  
Probably killed before his first shave.  In the 'Oops, What Have I Done?' category, 
DRONE A1 was mashed by DEVOUT CHRISTIAN, who let DRONE A1 know that killing members 
of NATURAL B. KILLERS 2 is a no-no.  Congrats to SILK for revenging the death of his 
teammate (but more importantly, feeding O'JAY a bit of dirt).  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

All (non FRODOs), my words shall be limited.
1. May your FTF have been fruitful. (read: all your warriors died)
2. May you have gotten your TWX entry "all in". (fingers crossed when said)
3. Happy New Year (may the RUGs treat you miserably)
    -- Oz The All Friendly (sort of)

Let the TWX games begin. (Goooooooooooooooo FRODO!) -- Oz The All Excited

Whoops!  Yes, Land Of Oz will have a CAPTAIN and that will be:  Lion. -- Oz The All 
Communicative

All, TWX coordinators, uh, Lion is both my Captain AND my CHAMPION. -- Oz The 
Sometimes Confused

I declare Rice & Bean my champion for the TWX.  Thanks. -- Floyd

North Fork -- I am declaring our warrior Sex (I'm A) as our champion. -- D. Noble, mgr 
80's Disco

Go Arcane Mercs!  Go Arcane Mercs!

All -- I'm declaring Doom Slinger as the champion of my team. -- Var, Mgr of Baal's 
Minions

TW Organizers and contestants -- I declare my Team Champion for the TW will be Aether 
Marine! -- La Guillotine, Weird Alchemy (team KGGP)

YAO MING -- Humpf... Thought you were taller... -- Fast Eeek

Alright TWX participants, it's time for the IC to kick some butt! -- DD

I am declaring Warrior Wight as the champion for Spectral Steel. -- DD

All -- I declare as my champion The Doctor (47-8142). Prepare to be dominated!! :P -- 
Spirit

All -- Good Luck to all in the TW! -- Spirit

Oz -- A big thanks to you for all the work you've done to get this TW going. You're a 
good man, I don't care what Assur says about you! -- Spirit

TW Moderators -- A big thank you for the work and effort you will put into this TW. -- 
Spirit

I would like to announce a change in our alliance.  Blackstorm is going to be replaced 
by Manta and his team will be Token Entry -- Maximillian

Why oh why do I have have good turns befooore the start of the contest..... -- 
Maximillian

Drone A1 -- We at the Natural B. Killers have only one way of dealing with the death 
of a teammate.  FULL 3 ROUNDS OF BF!  And if that does not suffice then a headhunting 
we will go till turn ten. -- Maximillian

Is it just me or is this Den and his group.....just unpleasant?! -- Maximillian

Mr Wolf -- There never was a hope for you. -- Devout Christian

Knights call -- Another notch in the spear. -- Sir Killalot

Devout Christian will be the champion for Natural B. Killers for now.  Say your 
prayers.... -- Maximillian

Votan -- A nice back and forth match, you may want to drop some weight.... Suicide I

Let's rock!  My champion will be Late or Early... -- LP, Les Turfistes

North Fork -- Although it is nowhere near Halloween, we are still declaring Jack 
O'Lantern to be the champion representing Royal Flush. -- Crip, mgr of Royal Flush

Wednesday -- Someone else can run through the compilation of newsletters to officially 
annotate the history of the Turf War, but my long-standing position on the Turf War is 
that I wish it were run in some slow turnaround arena besides North Fork.  XoChitlan, 
Snowbound, Fratsfa, Trocar and Illis could all use some extra teams.  North Fork 
always seems to have enough teams, even without this contest.  But we participate 
nonetheless.  The one time it was not run here, I ran one of my other stables in it. 
-- Crip

Hear ye, hear ye!  PEANUT BLUBBER is the Champion for SHEWISH DINER for the Turf War! 
-- One Armed Bandit, mgr. of Shewish Diner, member of Clockwork Doom

All -- I am declaring The Doctor as my Champion for D.A. Rejects. I'm also declaring 
that the AA are weenies! But we already know that. -- Spirit

Due to Blackstorm going MIA we have had to make a change in our alliance.  Please 
welcome Manta to The Wrecking Crew.
  Maximillian will represent Natural B. Killers 2, also team captain.
  Dr. F will represent -- Mentors Misfits  
  Manta will represent Token Entry
  Nomad will represent -- The Wild Hunt

I declare Lack of Hygiene as Champion of Biker Life.  Much as it is in real Biker 
Life. -- Bill

Let the Turf War begin!  The Wild Hunt rides again along with the rest of the Wrecking 
Crew!  Bloodfire will be The Hunt's Champion.  Let the Hunt begin!

Just dropping a line to announce Life's Lessons' Champion.  Not to be confused with 
his cousin.... my champion will be Homie D. Clone. -- Street Legal mgr. of Life's 
Lessons, member of the Great Lakes Syndicate.  All fear the Great Lakes Syndicate!!!!! 
-- Street Legal  		 	  		  

Good luck to all you TWXers.  May the games begin! -- Master Fox

Busted Aces -- What a good fight!  We may need a rematch. -- Dulcinea

All -- Why are Slashers so unpopular?  I want to try and get a good one but I'm not 
sure what that would look like.  Any thoughts? -- Master Fox

All -- I, Manta, manager of Token Entry, declare that I am entering the Turf War as a 
member of the Wrecking Crew (TWC) in lieu of Blackstorm. -- Manta, mgr Token Entry

All -- Token Entry, managed by Manta, is declaring for the Turf War. -- Manta

-- Manta

Second Bananas declares Agent 99 as its champion for the Turf War. -- Mannequin, mgr 
Second Bananas

Good luck to all in the Turf War! -- Mannequin

All note: A group of formidable and deadly teams are allying under the name 
MERCENARIES.  Lord Scorpio will be captain, leading Wednesday, Deitys Of Chaos, and

and declarations should be in this newsletter. -- Oz The All-Trying-To-Help

TW Organizers and contestants -- Just like last year, KGGP will count in its ranks 
Khisanth, Grimm and Le Pentarque, while I will captain the team. -- La Guillotine, 
Weird Alchemy

All -- Announcing that Drone A1 is my Champion for Tolbins Hive A in TW. -- Tolbin

All -- I would like to declare Stink Face as my champion. -- Howlin' Wolf of Howlin 
Mad

Moderators -- Wednesday, mgr of Deitys of Chaos, is fighting under the Mercenaries 
banner with Keyoke and our captain will be Lord Scorpio.  My champion is Low Key. -- 
Wednesday

Master Fox -- Thank you for the words of warning; being the stubborn type I plan to at 
least present a challenge to these experienced managers! -- Wednesday

Hear ye, hear ye!  Following the poor Iowa showing, Trump has folded the House of 
Cards.  So they will not be part of TEABAG.  Instead, please give a warm Free Blades 
welcome to Sprout Of My Mind, which replaces House of Cards in both the Turf War and 
TEABAG.  I will manage them as deftly as I did the HoC folks.  Good luck! -- Vlad

All -- I'm declaring Rick (47-8810) as my champion, from my team Rick and Morty. -- 
TMM

I, The Upright Man, declare that my Turf War champion is Digital Pop. -- TUM

Turf War Participants -- I am declaring a champion for team Big Lake Groove.  You 
shall soon be flummoxed by the abilities of my new warrior Oodles of Talent, the 
declared champion of Big Lake Groove.  Many points will be scored in this little 
contest by my champion much to my joy and to your chagrin. -- Den, manager of the Big 
Lake Groove and High Priest of the mighty Allied Axis

Street Legal -- So very sad that your cruddy alliance has to resort to 57 point down-
challenges in a pathetic effort to secure a win.  The amalgamation of your 37 more 
fights, your inability to design good warriors, and your absence of any managing skill 
met with my remarkable design strategies and unsurpassed management techniques quickly 
resulted in an expected victory for Ookla the Mok over Jenna.  Honestly I didn't even 
watch the fight, I just skipped back to my records room and noted the win, certain it 
was going to happen.  This will be a difficult contest for you since you can no longer 
down-challenge without losing points, if you have any points to lose, that is.  If you 
wish to talk this over, you can find me easily, I'm the guy that everyone wants to 
talk to, and you, well, not so much. -- Den

Crip -- Get used to losses like my Blinding Man delivered last turn; they will come 
faster and more furious than the goiters on your neck. -- Den

Blackheart -- Would love to still bloodfeud your junk warrior, but as is usually the 
case, my guys are all ranked above yours. -- Den

Assur -- I have some additional names for your team as we begin to kill them off for 
you.  Guy with Duct Tape, Guy in Van, Guy with Bags of Candy, Guy with Camera, and of 
course Guy with Mirror on Shoe.  Funny thing is, these are all things Oz has been 
called as well. -- Den

Oz the Self-Righteous -- How about this?  How about you sit there with that blank look 
on your disgusting saliva-covered face and watch me work my magic instead of acting 
like some kind of self-righteous nut-job?  Don't pretend to think the simpleton known 
as Wednesday (the worst day of the week in my opinion) needs or wants your help.  Did 
you consider that maybe he is the kind of sadomasochist freak that loves to come into 
an arena and get belittled by incredibly charming managers like myself?  Of course you 
didn't because you live your sad existence thinking you know what is right for 
everyone.  Crawl back behind the curtain and let us real men manage our teams the way 
we want.  My smile makes women feel giddy, your smile scares women as it is usually 
accompanied by the strong smell of ether. -- Den

Scorpio -- You are seriously going to attempt to fight in the contest?  Man, I wish I 
had more young warriors as we could win this contest by only fighting against you.  If 
you stick around, that is; you already left Niytyole as you could not compete.  You 
continue to prove my point, that you are a sad and simple individual.  Be prepared to 
go 2-13 in your first 3 turns, loser. -- Den

Mannequin -- I see you are still the type of manager that must cling to simple tourney 
kills like you cling to the mailbox awaiting your next assistance check.  Like you 
could really afford going out to dinner, don't try to act cool around the rest of us, 
trying to pretend like you can actually eat somewhere other than a soup line.  Don't 
fear, little fella, I will exact my satisfaction from you for killing Lom. -- Den

Wednesday -- I am sure you had much time in grade school to learn those tactics, since 
you were there for over 10 years.  Some of us get out in just a few years, but I guess 
they call us "smart" so you probably would not understand that technique.  Let me 
paint a visual for you, limper.  The next time I see you in the North Fork Commons I 
am going to grab you by your enlarged left ear and drag you into the public center, 
then I am going to jump into the air and shoot my left foot out in a massive leg 
strike which you will not be able to defend.  The blow will strike you center-chest 
and you will be propelled backwards into the grass, the inertia of the blow so 
incredible that once your back hits the grass you flip over backwards, but your super-
large head will prevent a graceful flip and it will hold you ramrod straight vertical 
for a fraction of a second (just enough time for that homeless child Little Francine 
to point and laugh at you) and then you will complete the tumble and lay there for 
several minutes.  While you are laying there I will march in a perfect circle around 
you clockwise pointing with my right hand and laughing the entire time.  Once the 
wheel is set in motion it cannot be stopped. -- Den

Master Fox -- I recently had a birthday and when I blew the candles out on my cake I 
made a wish, the wish was that you succumb to a painful illness.  The thought made me 
smile so huge my cheeks hurt.  Sure hope that wish comes true. -- Den

All -- Let it be known that Supersize Me will be my Champion for the TW. -- Madwand

All -- I want to announce for the Turf Wars.  My alliance shall be known as 
MERCENARIES (a.k.a. SCORPIONS ALLIANCE). :)  My team is SOVEREIGN; I am teaming up 
with KEYOKE of team Beyond the Wall and WEDNESDAY of team Deities of Chaos.  I am to 
be the captain of the alliance. -- Lord Scorpio

I designate O'Jay as the champion of the Mentor's Misfits -- Dr. F

Looking for trouble, now you've found it. You're a drum and we're gonna pound it. -- 
Dr. F 	

All -- I would like to declare WARGRATH (47-8735) as my champion.  May he not graduate 
in 1-2 fights. -- Grimm

All -- Lets see what spell I can cast on your weak warriors. -- White Wizard

Good Luck to all. -- Grimm

Let it be known that Gaseous Clay shall henceforth be recognized as the Champion of 
the Ottodrome TW stable.  Long may he live, and many be his victories! -- Otto X

All, I thought I said it before (old age, you know) but I will say it again:  Lion 
shall be the Land Of Oz Champion. Come on, Lion; roar! -- Oz The All Notifying

I, Crambus, manager of Big Lake Maulers and Head Court Jester of the power-house 
Allied Axis, am declaring Thugger Jax (47-8524) as my champion.

Master Fox -- This chicken coop belongs to me.  Stay out. -- Crambus

OZ the all over-bearing - #1, Deeders spoke first. #2, whatever goes on between 
Deeders and the AA members can and will be resolved between Deeders and the AA 
members. I'm pretty sure we've known each other long enough to figure it out. You need 
not stick your snout in it or throw in your 2 cents. Back off while your warriors 
still suck air. -- Crambus

All -- My Champion for the contest will be Conversation (47-8672). -- LHI

Greetings TW participants!  This is my first ever TW, and I'm not quite sure what to 
expect!  I do know that I've got some of the best managers by my side so confidence is 
high!!  If I may, I will go ahead and name my warrior "Sex (I'm A)" as the champion 
for our team "80's Disco". -- D. Noble

                                NAME CHANGE-O-RAMA

     The crowd was surprisingly orderly, but it was still a crowd, and the Commission 
clerk, Algernon, looked at it uneasily.  Whenever this many people came together to 
petition for something, it meant trouble.  For him, anyway.  Records to be altered.  
Altering records was Bad.  It made Extra Work.
     His assistant clerk leaned close and whispered, "If it weren't for gladiators, we 
wouldn't have jobs.  Smile at them and ask what they want."
     Algernon closed his eyes briefly.  Looking at this crowd made him dizzy.  They 
were all wearing black and white stripes.  Like a herd of zebras, except that zebras 
didn't carry swords.  Then he took a deep breath and managed a smile.  "What... ah, 
what can I do for you?"
     "We want new names," the first gladiator said.  There was a number on the front 
of his shirt:  0381.  He thumped the number with his thumb.  "This here isn't a 
name--"
     "We want REAL names!"  That voice came from farther back in the crowd.
     "Yeah!  We've paid our dues," another shouted, "and we've EARNED real names!"
     One from the very back yelled, "I want to be called Tom."
     All the others turned to look at him.
     Algernon couldn't see him, but apparently those looks were accusing.  Well, he 
could understand that, "Tom" was such a... common name.
     "My mom called me Tom," the voice in the back protested.  "It's a good name."
     "It isn't the name you put on the petition," 0381 said.  "We talked about this.  
We got our manager's agreement.  You get the name on the petition."
     "But--!"
     Algernon didn't really want to keep staring at all these stripes while they 
argued.  He picked up the petition.  "These names are the ones you want?"
     0381 turned back.  "Yes."
     "It's a lot of trouble, and when other people see that YOU are getting name 
changes, THEY are going to want them--"  Seeing the gladiators beginning to frown... 
and finger their weapons, he went on quickly, "So I figure we might as well make it a 
complete deal.  A Name-Change-O-Rama.  Everyone who wants a name change can petition 
for it.  Get it all over with at once."  He glanced at the petition, shuddered 
slightly, and passed it to his clerk.  "We'll announce it, proclaim it, even, and you 
will get the names on this petition.  And others will get the names THEY think they 
should have had, too."  He paused.  "And I think I'll get a new name, I'm tired of 
being an Algernon...."
