Later days, THE LEGENDS, since SAND DANCERS took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news. Of course, we're all terribly impressed to see MIRIAL ADAMANT win a fight and gain 15 points, terribly. Due to absence, and inability to defend the throne, ROGAR THORFIN has lost the Title of Duelmaster. Start setting that alarm earlier! And it's out with the old, in with the new, as JIGGER KREE takes the Title and last week's bar tab from the old Duelmaster. Heh, heh. Kickbacks and bribes, kickbacks and bribes, how else do you think some of these guys win their fights? Skill? Ha! My mother always told me, 'If you don't have anything nice to say, start talking.' I loved that woman. Ah, now we come to my favorite part, where we see all the guys who are dead and gone, and get to see if their team cared. Honor is like a chainmail shirt, it only shines through use. Certain nameless cowards will doubtless rebuke me on this one. There's got to be a better place in LIN TIRIAN to get a drink than The Lost Hope Inn! Any suggestions? Phlllt! Just had to do that before I leave the fine city of LIN TIRIAN. I feel much better now. I see the crowds are getting restless, I must leave now-- Snide Clemens DUELMASTER W L K POINTS TEAM NAME JIGGER KREE 2631 16 28 0 83 SAND DANCERS (68) CHALLENGER CHAMPIONS W L K POINTS TEAM NAME -SAMMY 2678 13 7 0 91 THE LEGENDS (208) CHAMPIONS W L K POINTS TEAM NAME -ROGAR THORFIN 2255 6 3 1 89 DOMINATION (201) CHALLENGER ADEPTS W L K POINTS TEAM NAME SHANA THE KNIFE 2663 13 17 0 60 SAND DANCERS (68) ADEPTS W L K POINTS TEAM NAME CHALBAEG 2705 7 10 2 49 SAND DANCERS (68) -OLAF THORFIN 1720 6 2 0 48 DOMINATION (201) -DEAN 2712 9 2 0 46 THE LEGENDS (208) MIRIAL ADAMANT 2729 5 0 1 43 SAND DANCERS (68) -FRANK 2692 13 3 0 42 THE LEGENDS (208) INITIATES W L K POINTS TEAM NAME -MIKE 2730 0 2 0 2 THE LEGENDS (208) '-' denotes a warrior who did not fight this turn. THE DEAD W L K TEAM NAME SLAIN BY TURN Revenge? PERSONAL ADS Rogar Thorfin -- Go go go! You look good on the top of the heap, trying to fend off the challenges of upstarts while keeping your balance on that slippery peak. -- Jigger Kree P.S. And I don't mind the skills, either. Captured Orc? What a travesty. Apparently the arena recruiters weren't up to capturing an orc, so they settled for a dwarf, adding blindness to ineptitude. -- Shana the Knife Almost I could feel sorry for the Ambitious Guard, locked into this dead-end ambition. I wonder what HIS crime was that he was given this punishment? -- Chalbaeg Take that, you Convicted Thief! And any others I meet up with will get the same! -- Mirial Adamant Houdini -- We are almost all empty spots here. We will breathlessly await your tricks. -- Jorja, Sand Dancers 14 September 2006 I am back in the arena and thinking back to those days in 1984 where I was a novice and clueless manager. Now, 22 years later it looks like I am an ancient and once again clueless manager. I am looking to recover some old warriors. Since none of them are Aimed Blows, they are no threat to win anything. I just want to see how they turned out. The Couatl 2-17 Madam Butterfly 20-701 Gypsy Moth 20-703 King Crab 21-1 Priestess Python 26-1388 Please contact me at DekeYoung@Comcast.net if you know about any of these ancient warriors, or just want to bs about the old, old, old times. 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!

CHALBAEG viciously subdued CAPTURED ORC in a 2 minute gory master vs. novice brawl. MIRIAL ADAMANT demolished FRATSFA SLAVE in a 2 minute mismatched competition.
