                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

We bid farewell to a three time Duelmaster last turn, and welcome back a now six time
Duelmaster this turn.  Unfortunately, we also have to bid adieu to Trash Can, who
only held the throne here once, but had two TV's to his record, once as a Dead
Initiate, and another in the Champions Class.  His 11-11-7-21-15-8-11 stats don't
seem particularly awe-inspiring, and neither do his Moderate/Very High Rhythm with
the Longspear while learning attack skills.  But he was +4 Init, +3 Rip, and +3
Defence, so that will probably keep his career in Home Guard going a little longer.

On My Way
Open Sesame
6-time Duelmaster of Snowbound

                                      SPY REPORT

     Busy, busy, busy, lots of things happening in SNOWBOUND this turn, and let's 
start with a look at some of the teams.  And let's see, C IS FOR COOKIE fought GOBERT 
HINNY and gained 23 points and contributed to OPEN SESAME's 3-2-0.  NIGHT GAUNT has 
lost to PETRA QUORD, falling 5 points, while helping make DREAMS OF KADATH a 2-2-0 
turn.  This week's Duelmaster bout was between CANTEX and our Duelmaster ON MY WAY, 
making a challenge.  Defending his title for another turn, ON MY WAY kept LIFE 
IMPACTS' warrior, CANTEX, from claiming the throne.  By the way, was that our 
Duelmaster that I saw last night, cramped under the table at The Victory Tavern?   
     I tell you, a green quarterstaff lasts longer than a seasoned sapling.  A basher 
friend of mine assures me this is true.  MIDDLE WAY 6 has cause to stand tall, as 
they were SNOWBOUND's most avoided team.  A smart manager knows this is a team to 
beat.  And avoiding MIDDLE WAY 6 more than any other team we find DREAMS OF KADATH.  
SNOWBOUND, are we going to accept, or respect this sort of thing?  Well, sports fans, 
take notice that PETRA QUORD from MIDDLE WAY 6 was SNOWBOUND's most challenged 
warrior this turn.   
     A coward dies a thousand deaths, a brave man only once.  Wise men know this to 
be true.  A farewell moment, if you please, TRASH CAN of OPEN SESAME has been sent to 
the Dark Arena, and was carried out on its shield.  OPEN SESAME has some questions to 
answer.  Like 'why did you kill your fighter, TRASH CAN, who had a record of 12-2-3?' 
We'd like to remind certain teams not to rob the graves of their enemies.  You know 
who you are; and it's considered rude.   
     I like this place, SNOWBOUND, the taverns have old wine, and young serving 
girls.  Who could ask for more?  Well, I'm burning daylight here in SNOWBOUND and 
I've a long road ahead of me.  Happy Trails.  Until you see my quill in SNOWBOUND 
again, farewell-- Alarond the Scribe

                            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.

               f.  For purposes of scoring, the moderators will score the Turf War

Special Scoring Considerations for the Turf War are as follows:
Spy Report mention (team name only)              +2
Style Master                                     +2

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 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.

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

Tournament Considerations:
        1.  Tournament participation is ALLOWED and encouraged.
        2.  Tournament Victors won during the course of the contest will gain a one

            Fork turn 276 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 seven (7) teams allowed per alliance for the
            Turf War.
        4.  The Dark Arena may be used on the first turn only, of every warrior,
            without penalty.
