On the shores of a lake:

     Senator Sedalia stared at the magicians with consternation and displeasure.
     The magicians stared back, in much the same mood.  The one who seemed to be in
charge repeated his statement of position.  "We came here to summon lesser daemons to
deal with certain problems in Istoreth," he said.  "You appeared in response to that
spell.  Therefore you are the summoned daemons and must do our bidding."
     "And what if we can't deal with your problems?" Sedalia asked.  There might be
some value in passing through Istoreth--a city on the Skaithvarn Peninsula, as he
recalled--in the character of magical spirits.  And some risks.
     The chief magician scowled.  "Then you are the wrong daemons and must be
dismissed out of hand."  His scowl deepened, and he tapped his wand on the palm of
his other hand.  "A task which I am prepared to undertake without delay, it that
should prove... necessary."
     "Or any of us!" another mage added.
     "Summoned daemons should not be so quarrelsome," a third said.  His fingers were
twitching.  Since he was the one standing by the altar holding the knife (the victim
appeared to have been a rabbit), this was not encouraging.
     Sedalia was quiet for a moment, reviewing what facts he had, then nodded
sharply.  "It appears to me that you and we have been the victims of a daemonic
prank.  Just as you cast your spell, your net, as it were, into the immaterial world,
my comrade and I were attempting to escape the magical bounds of the Isle of the Eye.
And some mischievous daemon, seeing a way to escape the spell himself, guided us into
it in his place."  The senator shrugged.  "You have, in a way, done us a favor.  So
we will, so far as we can, return that favor by attempting whatever it was you wanted
the daemon to do."
     The mages all stared at him fixedly for several moments, then turned to their
leader, consulting with glances.
     Behind him, Gissanniah pinched his arm.  "You don't know what they might want,"
she said, keeping her voice low.  "We aren't demons--"
    "Freely granted," Sedalia said, "though some might argue that politicians do fall
into that category.  But they weren't fishing for demons.  'Lesser daemons', minor
spirits of some kind.  And we are ingenious and capable.  We may be able to handle
whatever is afoot."
     "The spell specified that certain abilities believed necessary would be present,
and you could not have been substituted if you did not have them," the chief mage
said.  "Therefore, we will allow you the attempt."  He gestured toward a grove of
trees farther along the shore, where a carriage could be glimpsed.  "Let us be away
to Istoreth and put it to the test."

Between Tarrgir and Andor:

     "I don't believe this!" Fandil said.  "After all these years of harmony, they're
just turning on their neighbors--"
     Lenpro held up a hand to stop his companion.  "Fandil, we could debate and
analyze till the cows grow wings, but it wouldn't do a bit of good.  Just a post
mortem:  How did the old Andorian League die?  What we need is to act.  Keep it
alive, make it stronger, a *new* Andorian League.  Start thinking about that."
     The old mage opened his mouth, then closed it again and frowned.  Finally he
ndded.  "You're right.  Okay.  Everything we've been able to find out indicates that
the king is dead or vanished, no one knows exactly how, but gone for good."
     "Right.  Somebody can investigate that later, if somebody wants to, but that's
done."  Lenpro glanced over his shoulder at Tarrgir, fading into the distance behind
them.  "Even if the king was found and returned to Andor, I don't think he'd be able
to rule effectively now."
     "But somebody has to," Fandil said, nodding.  "Not just to oversee the details
of government--although somebody should keep all those bureaucrats under close watch!
But--"
     Lenpro laughed.  "I suppose 'all those bureaucrats' are watching each other very
closely right now, making sure nobody gets more than their share of the power."
     "Maybe so, but all they can do is keep it grinding along in the same old way,
and slowing down and dying in its tracks, if we could see a long view.  No.  We need
a visible head of the government, a king or whatever, to form the pole around which
the new Andorian League will crystalize."
     "Right," Lenpro said again.  "And it should be someone whose claim to that role
is beyond dispute.  Andoria doesn't have *time* for internal disputes right now, not
with hostile and greedy neighbors.  So it has to be Emperor Alonj of Fratsfa."
     Fandil was silent for several minutes while their mounts negotiated a badly
graded slope and a weedy ford.  Then he sighed.  "I see your logic.  The baron of
Ardivent is an elf, the head of the Aruaki Clanholds is an Aruaki.  Neither would be
acceptable at this time to the rest of the Andorian population, even if they wanted
to take on the job.  The High Thane of Convincia... isn't really up for the job, and
he's old.  With the defection of Aradi, a Raltuman wouldn't be trusted.  So that only
leaves a Fratsfan, and their ruler is human, the right age, and legitimate.  But
there is a persistent rumor that he's a half-wit, you know.  Even if it isn't true,
that will undermine the confidence of--"
     "Lady Fern says he's capable enough," Lenpro said.  "But that's a secondary
factor.  He's the right man to serve as a figurehead for a new Andoria, so he's
hereby elected."
     "Whether he wants the job or not?"
     "Whether or not," Lenpro said.  He reined his horse to the right at a fork.
"Which is why we're going to Fratsfa instead of Andor."

Andor:

     Crystal Fireblade flicked a glance at the golem of the king, considering it and
dismissing it.  "It won't buy us much time," she said.  "You can make it look like a
king, but you can't make it act like one."
     "There is a rumor," Herlas said, "a whisper of a rumor among the clerks at the
palace, that the golem is intended to announce its abdication in favor of some other
person.  Maybe not today, but soon--we aren't the only ones who know this won't work
for long."
     "Who?"
     "Ah... probably Lord Korneth of Sengir."
     "I have never heard of this Korneth, or of Sengir," the knight said.  "What do
you know of him?"
     "Little more than you do.  He is as ambitious as any man I've ever seen.
Ruthless.  As to his background, nothing.  People who asked questions when he first
appeared... disappeared."

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, Warriors of AMEN-TEI.  Allow this humble servant Novgorodny Vir to 
give you a respite from the fights in the form of this Spyreport.  Say what you will 
about blind luck and dirty fighting, but BIBLICAL HAMMERZ will tell you 42-33-1 is 
nothing to laugh at...  1949 YANKEES had cause to celebrate, after RASCHI got 20 
points by beating TRUSTWORTHY SCRIBE.  MARIA certainly had a baffled expression on 
his face, after losing to KUNG-FU MASTER and losing 17 points in the process!  
Duelmaster DIMAGGIO from 1949 YANKEES is going for the gold, as he challenged THE 
EXILED ONES' ATRION.  Ooh, the excitement!  DIMAGGIO successfully staved off a grab 
for the roses by ATRION of THE EXILED ONES.  Does AMEN-TEI have no one talented 
enough to dethrone him?  So who was the warrior seen charging into immovable walls 
and challenging dead trees?  Someone's got a basic problem...   
     A Zenmaster once told me, 'Does not the spinning wheel turn?  And do not the 
little birds cry out?'  Any ideas?  Like the noble eagle soaring amongst the 
mountaintops, so stand the warriors of THE EXILED ONES, alone and unchallenged.  Like 
a pup with its tail between its legs, 1949 YANKEES scurried away from THE EXILED 
ONES.  Oh, the shame!  Everyone is famous for fifteen minutes, and ATRION is it right 
now.  Most challenged warrior.  Isn't THE EXILED ONES proud!   
     The moving sword slashes, and having slashed, moves on...  Ask not a spymaster 
for counsel, for he will pontificate long after you have fallen into an unconscious 
stupor.   
     All good things must come to an end.  As the seasons change, and the creatures 
of the wild change also, so do I feel a yearning to leave this place.  Can anything 
compare to the pleasure of writing Spyreports for AMEN-TEI?  On that giddy note I 
take my leave-- Novgorodny Vir

                            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

                   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

            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.
