                             Notes from the arena champ.

Hello Rocanis!

What a great way to return to active play!  Smiles!  Best of luck on the sands.

                           Your DM,
                               Tyi Velwic

                                      SPY REPORT

     Much has changed in ROCANIS since last I was here.  Never fear, Olaf Modeen 
adapts to many situations, as do all successful fighters.  Woof!  KNIGHTS OF ROCANIS 
were a bunch of dogs after INCONSISTENT FURY got through with 'em!  4th ain't so 
sweet as 1st!  What's with MR THUG?  He actually beat BAD APPLES' HAWTHORN, and 
walked away with 17 more points from the fight.  Laughs were big at YIELD while they 
watched SAWTOOTH clobber LIMBDROPPER.  He lost 10 points and got bruised from objects 
thrown from the stands.  Try as he might, TRITUS wasn't good enough at persuading TYI 
VELWIC to step down from the Duelmaster's throne...  Wouldn't it be nice to have live 
subjects to practice on?  I hear some team is looking into the uses of convicted 
prisoners.   
     Speaking of cowardly avoiders and unfair challenges...  How well I know the 
feeling of being in the most avoided team!  Don't fall out of practive, KNIGHTS OF 
ROCANIS!  In my day, no team with a 342-219-19 would scare me off!  What's the 
problem, INCONSISTENT FURY?  How well I know the feeling of being the most challenged 
warrior, LOVEABLE LARRY!  Don't make idle boasts, they may come back to haunt you.  
WONDER BUBBLE expects the easy win by going 24 points down.  LOVEABLE LARRY will find 
this a hard lesson!  WONDER BUBBLE subdued LOVEABLE LARRY.  I bet WONDER BUBBLE could 
beat two-year-olds, too.  Well, STRAIGHT UP THUG knows who to set their sights on.   
     Warriors of ROCANIS unite.  You have only your games to lose!  How long have I 
been here?  I got people to see, places to go...   
     Who knows what the future holds for a warrior.  More fights, there's no doubt.  
Are you as tired of reading this as I am of writing it?  Actually, I guess I'm 
writing it before you read it.  Oh, well.  Remember--a good fighter needs both good 
skills and good luck.  Until next time,-- Olaf Modeen

Silly Apples!  They're all riled because I had a couple of apple trees pruned when it
isn't the pruning season.  I maintain that it was, none the less for that, a
perfectly logical thing to do.  I was given to understand, obviously by someone not
"au fait" with the facts, that the trees were purely ornamental.  So when the flowers
fell off, I basically ignored them.  Little did I know I should've been out there
every day, anxiously thinning fruit!  Some of the branches were so heavily loaded
they were breaking.  Clearly, surgery was needed.  Surgery was applied.  Let the Bad
Apples beware! -- Jorja

Contraband -- Hmphf.  I wish you came with a label, young fellow.  It would make so
much difference what *kind* of contraband I was looking at.  For instance, if you
were a bale of Fratsfan lace, I couldn't care much less, but on the other hand, what
if you're barrel of Ardiventi apple brandy?  That would be *quite* a different
matter.  As it is, not being partial to pigs in pokes, I believe I will have to pass.
-- Gaffer Smith

In Hiding -- That is *soooo* unfair!  How can I be expected to fight someone I can't
see?  Besides, an oriental wise man said it would prevent tanning, and Debby Tonte is
against it.  So come out, come out, wherever you are! -- Malus S'Prout

Wonder Bubble -- Ah.  Huh.  I find myself at a loss for words.  Ah... "Good fight."
-- Hawthorn
P.S.  What's wrong with inconsistency in your fury, anyway?  I believe it was Ralph
Waldo Emerson, a person not to be sneered at, who said that consistency was the
hobgoblin of small minds.  Your manager must, therefore, have a large mind, yes?

Lois Thug -- Have an apple.  Have two.  I've got plenty. -- Limbdropper

Mr. Thug -- Malus commented last time on how polite you were, but what I think is, if
you want to be really polite, you could lose more fights.  Work on this, okay? --
Woodworm

Tritus -- Eh?  Seems like plenty of people around here today. -- Gaffer Smith
P.S.  Although I will admit that your team is conspicuously not here except for you.
That can be hard, having to carry the torch, as they say, alone.

Our congratulations to Contraband. -- Jorja and the Bad Apples

17 July 2008
All -- Many of you know me and many more don't, but I will be scarce for a few
months.  I am relocating, so look for my presence online!  As my will, so mote it
be! -- Abraxis

                                 *TURF WAR VI RULES*
                            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
Challenge        +2     -2     +5       -5
Match Up         +1     -1     +1       -5
Bloodfeud        +2     -5     +5      -10
Champion         x2     x2     x2       x2
Dark Arena*     +10     -5     xx       xx
*After 2nd win, warrior scores no points for wins

Special Scoring Considerations for the Turf War are as follows:
Spy Report mention (team name only)              +2
Style Master                                     +2
Duelmaster                                       +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
            (1) time bonus of 25 points.  This bonus will apply EACH time a
            warrior(s) wins such status.
        3.  Tournament Champions won during the course of the contest will gain a one
            (1) time bonus of 50 points.  This bonus will apply EACH time a
            warrior(s) win such status.
        4.  Points for TVs and TCs will be applied the Turn after RSI posts
            tournament results in the North Fork (DM 47) newsletter (i.e., if the
            results post on North Fork turn 275, points will be credited on North
            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.

Prizes:
The Turf War is a "winner take all" contest.  All prizes and 100% of the Gift
Certificates will be awarded to the Captain of the winning alliance.  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.

The following prizes have been secured from RSI:
        1.  Renaming of the North Fork (DM 47) arena;

            alliance);
        3.  Known Favorites for one warrior on each team of the winning alliance
            (warrior must be ranked Initiate or above, must be alive, and must have
            at least one arena fight to receive this award).
        4.  +1 Skill bonus potion for each manager on the winning alliance.  Bonus
            potion must be applied to a living warrior from (DM 47)
        5.  +1 Skill bonus potion (one) for each manager who fights in all 10 rounds
            AND 45 fights of the Turf War.  Bonus potion must be applied to a living

These awards will be listed by the Moderator for claiming from RSI (Lee) within 4
