                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

All hail Rocanis!  Greatest arena in the land.  I am off to the Dark Arena, a trip my
manager has decided I should have taken about 40 fights ago....  Ha ha.  Welp, 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.  It seems so recently 
people were saying YIELD was washed up, finished.  But 3-0-0 moved them up 1.  I 
guess they're washed no more...  What's with WOODWORM?  He actually beat STRAIGHT UP 
THUG's LOIS THUG, and walked away with 25 more points from the fight.  Major screwup 
at STRAIGHT UP THUG.  LOIS THUG lost 22 points to WOODWORM.  Some new strategies, 
perhaps?  Maybe LOIS THUG will provide more easy wins...  See how the Duelmaster Dark 
Arena Challenged DARK ARENA's MAINAKHA-TE MASTER?  That sort of initiative is how she 
got where she is now.  The crowds were amazed this turn, as MAINAKHA-TE MASTER killed 
the Duelmaster, TYI VELWIC, leaving INCONSISTENT FURY in mourning.  So now WONDER 
BUBBLE gets to be ROCANIS' Duelmaster.  But what comes around goes around.  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...  ROCANIS thinks KNIGHTS 
OF ROCANIS and their 345-226-19 is too much!  If at first you don't succeed, give 
up...  In my day, no team with a 344-222-19 would scare me off!  What's the problem, 
INCONSISTENT FURY?  How well I know the feeling of being the most challenged warrior, 
MOSSIE ROCKTROLL!  Don't make idle boasts, they may come back to haunt you.   
     Warriors of ROCANIS unite.  You have only your games to lose!  Here's some 
advice:  study your opponent, master many skills, fight dirty.   
     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.  Time for my medication, so I'll leave now. 
Practice, practice, practice!-- Olaf Modeen

Hawthorne -- Smiles, I believe the inconsistent part is cause we, the warriors, can't
seem to get to the sands, oh and not sure about large mind but he, the manager,
certainly has a large ego. -- Wonder Bubble

L Larry -- I didn't challenge you this turn, but you are truly loveable.  BTW, nice
riposte.  Too bad it was with a shield. -- Wonder Bubble, putting armour back on,
yes, yes.

In keeping with the level of repartee exhibited by members of this arena over the
last year, and on the understanding that our typist is tired:

To those whom we fought -- Good fight. -- Those who fought you

On another day, we'll almost certainly do better.  Why not write some personals
yourselves to inspire us?

Congratulations to the unpronounceable Tyi Velwic. -- Jorja and the Bad Apples

9 August 2008
All -- We are currently looking for capable manager that will give the Desolate
Empire Alliance a full roster for the Turf War.  We currently have four (4) roster
slots that are open to capable managers without questionable morals.  If interested
for the Turf War, contact:  Lamar Treas-Wilson, Dok Sik, Dok Sik Killas DM 47

               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

        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.

The Turf War is a "winner take all" contest.  All prizes and 100% of the Gift

            (warrior must be ranked Initiate or above, must be alive, and must have

        4.  +1 Skill bonus potion for each manager on the winning alliance.  Bonus
