                             Notes from the arena champ.

What's a Rubber Duckie look like you ask?  Well, I'm small, yellow, and a little
rubbery.  Not good to chew on, at least from a taste perspective, but enjoy taking a
bath.

Oh, stats you mean....   Try 15-5-10-17-10-10-15, with Masters in Attack, Decise and
Init, and an Advance d Expert in Riposte.  Also compiled a record of 10-9 in the Rookies/Apprentices and Inits tourney, then went 13-16-2 in Dead tourneys.
Fortunately, there was an 8-3-1 Dead Champs tourney in there.  So far, 78 skills
learned, and everything is mode except for a little +2 in Initiative.  The Commission
says the Duck likes the Longspear, with a High/Very Low Rhythm, and learns
initiative.  He'll probably be retiring in Home Guard.

3 time Duelmaster of Snowbound

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly SNOWBOUND games.  Did only my eyes note the 4-0-1 
record which OPEN SESAME managed to post this round?  I don't doubt that such a 
record will draw challengers!  DYLATH-LEEN caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial 
commission as he skillfully bested KIRLA LORVIN and was awarded 13 points in 
recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, DYLATH-LEEN put down KIRLA 
LORVIN, causing her to lose 13 points of recognition in the process.  As is fitting, 
the most sought after warrior on the challenge boards this week was none other than 
Duelmaster RUBBER DUCKIE itself.  Unwilling to wait upon the will of others, 
Duelmaster RUBBER DUCKIE Dark Arena Challenged EXILED ELF last week in a match to 
decide the fate of the throne.  Not for nothing has RUBBER DUCKIE in the past laid 
claim to the Duelmaster's throne, and this week it's proven its combat skill yet 
again.  No confirmation, but my sources claim that the top team has gained their 
position using magical aids.  Charmed weapons perhaps?   
     But come now, let us look deeper into the maze of contention and crossed blades 
that is city SNOWBOUND.  I saw one fighter that warriors avoided when this week's 
challenge seeking began.  DRUID'S GROVE is feared.  This much I can say.  Apparently 
the stalwarts of LIFE IMPACTS are catching the bulk of jests down at the challenging 
board for their large share of the avoids.   
     Vendettas.  Bloodied blades and broken spears.  Indeed the city has seen more 
than its fair share of red in recent times.  RUBBER DUCKIE has sworn to take up 
religion upon living to tell of its recent bout with the Dark Arena horrors.  A rare 
thing indeed!  Dark alleys may hide both secrets and assassins.  In the arena there 
is only the brightness of steel.  Keep vigil always!   
     If it were not for my skills as a spy I would have been mugged three times 
already in SNOWBOUND.  Nice atmosphere you have here!  Ahh, but I can hear the spires 
of a far off city calling to me.  I must away!  Till we meet again, remember:  a 
turtle walks slow, hides head in a shell, and harms no one; a lion runs to slay its 
prey.-- Zontani Sharp Eyes

Y'all have a nice day now, y'hear? -- Smitty

Hoops -- (head spinning)  That was so fast, I can't even comment on it. -- Gobert
Hinny

Mrs. Vaughn -- Fourteen minutes!  That's great, I *knew* we could make it last
longer.  The fans like that, it gives 'em time to gossip and have a beer.  Speeking
of which, would you care for a good gossip and maybe a sparkling water?  There's a
fizzy spring up near Iceberg Acres that is getting into the bottled-water business, I
think it's run by a retired gladiator.  We should probably support this effort. --

Dylath-Leen -- Hmm, not my kind of place at all.  I think I will avoid it.  There are
better places to live and trade. -- Inglemort Juls

Leering Shantak -- Not at *me* you don't leer, you beast.  Go lear at a ghoul. --

Night Gaunt -- Seems to me your problem could be alleviated with a bedtime snack.  A
big juicy rat, maybe?  Or, well, my momma used to swear by ovaltine. -- Cass Dolan

Hoops -- I dunno, Jorja says that if you have a set of hoops, what you need to do is
start embroidering.  Women!  Go figure. -- Gobert Hinny

Our congratulations to Rubber Duckie. -- Jorja and the Middle Way

And also congratulations to Trash Can on a tourney victory. -- Jorja and the Middle

                            Starting Nov 2008 (10 turns)

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 alliance and the Captain of the alliance in the North Fork
            (DM 47) newsletter.
        2.  Announcements made on the D2 Forums will not be accepted.

Captains are responsible for:
        1.  Verifying those who wish to participate under the banner of their
            alliance;
        2.  Distribution of prizes should their alliance win the Turf War.
        3.  Submit one (1) RSI Roll-Up Certificate to participate

Participating managers who are not Captains must:
        1.  Submit one (1) RSI Roll-Up Certificate to participate
        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 a Gift Certificate is received.
                   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
                   by the alliance Captain they will represent.
               c.  Only one (1) team per player may compete.  No multiple teams or
                   aliases will be allowed.  Violations will result in immediate
                   disqualification from the Turf War (so be sure to take any
                   multiple teams OFF of Team Maintenance).
               d.  Scoring will NOT be retroactive for teams that do not properly
                   declare 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 scoring
                   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 5 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.

Scoring will be as follows for Fights:
                Win   Loss   Kill      Die

         not the Dark Arena, may be replaced.
     4.  Champions must be in the Adepts bracket or lower on the turn they are
         declared, and may NOT have gone above Adepts level at any time; this
         includes teams transferred into North Fork for the Turf War.

        1.  Bloodfeuds will score points on all four (4) turns.
        2.  There is no limit to which warrior may bloodfeud or how often.
