Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp Eyes, Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari. Warriors--remember that glory waits always around the corner! Witness how this week VINCERE AUT MORI went 0-0-0 to move up 6 in the rankings. BIMBO caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial commission as she skillfully bested CONVICTED ASSASSIN and was awarded 16 points in recognition. In one of the week's more notable duels, KUNG-FU MASTER put down LUG, causing him to lose 9 points of recognition in the process. Not for nothing has ENDU ENDU in the past laid claim to the Duelmaster's throne, and this week he's proven his combat skill yet again. No confirmation, but my sources claim that the top team has gained their position using magical aids. Charmed weapons perhaps? I have been in deep conclave with my spies who watched all that has recently transpired. Indeed there is much I would report. I saw one fighter that warriors avoided when this week's challenge seeking began. FOUND IN THE SAND is feared. This much I can say. If you didn't look down dark alleys you'd have been hard pressed to find any of DUDS last week. Busy avoiding FOUND IN THE SAND? Is not Death a warrior's foremost adviser? Warriors, may this counselor stand ready at your right hand forever! 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 ERINIKA. Nice atmosphere you have here! Sadly warriors, now longer can I keep thy company nor savor the ale of thy fine city. Depart I must and soon! Till next we meet remember - the pen is mightier than the sword, but a maul is a different story!-- Zontani Sharp Eyes DUELMASTER W L K POINTS TEAM NAME ENDU ENDU 5242 18 4 0 94 DUDS (602) CHAMPIONS W L K POINTS TEAM NAME BIMBO 5325 10 5 1 76 DUDS (602) LUG 5316 10 6 1 71 DUDS (602) ADEPTS W L K POINTS TEAM NAME TWERP 5410 4 4 0 46 DUDS (602) CHALLENGER INITIATES W L K POINTS TEAM NAME -SLEEP WALKER 5451 4 1 0 33 PERFECTION QUEST II (513) -DOLT 5506 3 1 0 26 DUDS (602) INITIATES W L K POINTS TEAM NAME -PETRAFIED CREEPY 5585 3 5 1 19 VINCERE AUT MORI (641) -MINNET 4448 4 5 0 17 PERFECTION QUEST II (513) -ILYENA 5584 1 4 0 9 VINCERE AUT MORI (641) -PICUS 5577 1 1 0 4 VINCERE AUT MORI (641) -PRAETORIUS 5578 0 2 0 2 VINCERE AUT MORI (641) '-' denotes a warrior who did not fight this turn. THE DEAD W L K TEAM NAME SLAIN BY TURN Revenge? PERSONAL ADS Erinikans, fighting NPC' is so lovely. I am really such a fine, fine manager, -- Amy A. Airhead, Duds Princess 25 September 2006 It is obvious that the Dark Knights wish to be shown the light. Allow me to step forward and blind them with truth. YOU ARE WORTHLESS!!! The Dark Knights are so afraid of the light that they hide behind their black armor and empty threats. It is too bad they are unwilling to actually FIGHT us! I guess our natural light is too bright for you all to face! Fear us, for we are here! -- Gemini Goldphoenix, Overlord of the Avengers of Light! 5 October 2006 *Turf War IV Rules* Everyone may participate; known alliances, new alliances, or temporary alliances created to compete in the Turf War! However, to participate, each alliance must: A. Announce the alliance and the Captain of the alliance in the North Fork (DM 47) newsletter. Captains are responsible for: a. verifying those who wish to participate under the banner of their alliance; b. distribution of prizes should their alliance win the Turf War. Managers must: a. Submit one (1) RSI Roll-Up Gift Certificate to participate to: Baphomet, mgr. Knights Templar (568), DM 47 -- North Fork, or Rick Stringer 13 St. Michael's CT Elkton, MD 21921 b. Announce their intent to compete with manager name, team name and alliance they will be fighting under in the North Fork (DM 47) newsletter. Rules: 1. No scoring will begin until a Gift Cert is received. No exceptions. 2. Before a manager can compete, he/she must declare and be verified by the Captain of the alliance he/she has claimed for; 3. Only one (1) team per player may compete. NO multiple aliases please. Violations will result in disqualification. 4. The contest will begin on the turn following the January F2F and run for 12 turns. 5. The turn a declaration and verification will begin the scoring process. 6. No declarations or verifications will be accepted after Turn 10 of the Turf War 5. 7. For the purpose of scoring, I reserve the right to make all final decisions. Scoring: 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 Downchallenge -10 xx -10 xx Dark Arena +10 -5 xx xx Special Scoring: a. Each mention in the Spy Report is worth 2 points (team mentions only!) b. Each Style Master is worth 2 points. c. Duelmaster Throne is worth 2 points Champions: a. Champions may be declared, but are not mandatory. If declared, the Champion must be in the Adepts or lower brackets on the turn they are declared without having gone above the Adepts bracket at any time...including transferred teams. (I'll be watching for this occurrence!) Bloodfeuds: a. Bloodfeuds count for all four (4) turns. However, the same warrior may not be used all four turns. 4 turns means 4 separate warriors. A penalty of -10 will be given to the team who violates this. Special Conditions: a. I reserve the right for all final decisions. b. If I make a mistake, I'll multiply the points by 2. c. If you claim I did, and *YOU* are wrong, I'll subtract points at the rate of x10. d. Each alliance begins with zero (0) points. e. Dark Arena may be used on the first turn of every warrior with no penalty (this means a warrior with 0 FE). f. TVs won after the contest begins gain a 25 point one time score once the tourney reports are posted in the NL. g. TCs won after the contest begins gain a 50 point one time score with the same conditions as noted for TVs. h. NO switching alliance once verified by an alliance that a team has declared for. i. Only 7 teams are permitted per alliance for the Turf War 5. PRIZES: Turf Wars are a "Winner Takes All" type contest. All prizes and 100% of the RU Certs will be given to the Captain of the winning alliance and it is his/her responsibility to give these to the alliance membership. I have requested from RSI the following: a. renaming of the orth Fork (DM 47) arena; b. renaming of Dark Arena Monsters; c. known favourite rhythms for one warrior on each team of the winning alliance. This warrior would be in the Initiates or above brackets on the last turn of the Turf War (they must have at least one arena fight to receive this award). Baphomet, Host of TW5 Special Note: A downchallenge is considered from a higher bracket to a lower bracket. Same bracket, more recognition points? Not a downchallenge!
