     Perhaps you have not seen the rules for TW8, which has been posted in all
newsletters?  Here they are.

                                *TURF WAR 8 RULES*

Starting July 30 2012 (12 turns)
Bring acclaim and glory to the North Fork (DM47) arena.

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 Captain of the alliance in the North Fork (DM 47)
        2.  Indicate in the newsletter which Captain/alliance you will join.
        3.  Announcements made on the D2 Forums or elsewhere will not be accepted.

Captains are responsible for:
        1.  Verifying/authorizing, in the North Fork newsletter those who wish to
participate under the banner of their alliance. The confirmation/verification must
occur after, or in the same newsletter, but not before, the participants declaration.
(Lack of participant indication of joining and/or subsequent lack of Captain
confirmation will delay a team's participation in the Turf War.)
        2.  Distribution of prizes should their alliance win the Turf War.
        3.  Submit two (2) RSI Roll-Up Certificates to participate.  (Note: Captains
may, if they wish, submit certs for all potential members of their alliance.)

Participating managers who are not Captains must:
        1.  Submit two (2) RSI Roll-Up Certificates to participate (Unless already
submitted by Captain.  Note: extras will not be returned, but will go into the
winning pool of prizes.)
        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 an RSI Gift Certificate is
received, and participant indication and captain confirmation are posted in the North
Fork newsletter.  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 in the same or
subsequent newsletter by the alliance Captain they will represent.
               c.  Only one (1) team per player may compete.  No arena multiple teams
or aliases will be allowed.  Violations will result in immediate manager
disqualification (including team point adjustments) from the Turf War (so be sure to
take any multiple teams OFF of Team Maintenance and be certain not to run any other
team warriors).
               d.  Scoring will NOT be retroactive for teams/alliances that do not
properly declare or get captain confirmation 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 score 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 3 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.
(Note: the intent is to have a very thorough set of rules so that few decisions, if
any, are required from the moderators.)

Scoring will be as follows for Fights:
                                   Win   Loss   Kill      Die
Challenge (up or within same class) +2     -2     +5       -5
Down Challenge "Challenger"         -2     -2     -5       -5
Down Challenge "Challenged"         +2      0     +5       -5
Match Up                            +1     -1     +1       -5
Bloodfeud Challenge (Up or Down)    +2     -5     +5      -10 
Champion **                         x2     x2     x2       x2
Dark Arena*                        +10     -5     xx       xx
Tournament Death***                                        -3
Halfway (6 round total) best alliance win/loss percentage ****
Final (12 round total) alliance w/l% percentage ****
    * After 2nd win in DA, warrior scores no additional points for wins.
    ** Champions double applies to his score only - not to opponent.
    *** No warrior may be substituted without the proper use of the DA or arena death
or death in a tournament or graduation.  There must be a maximum of five only on a
team at any point and time.  (The penalty for such substitution is -10 points.)
Points awarded for team tournament participation are 1 for 1 entrant, 3 for 2
entrants, 6 for 3 entrants, 10 for 4 entrants, and 15 for 5 entrants.  A TV scores 7
points or a TC scores 15 points.   Death in a tournament results in a -3 score.
    ***** Halfway points scored are 25, 20, 15, 10, 5, 5, 5 (etc) for 1st, 2nd, 3rd
(etc).  (To qualify for any of these points the alliance must have fought 75% of its
possible fights.)  Final 12 Round points scored are 40, 30, 20, 15, 10, 5, 5, 5 (etc)
for the 1st, 2nd, 3rd (etc).  (To qualify for any of these points the alliance must
have fought 75% of its possible fights.)

Special Scoring Considerations for the Turf War are as follows:
Full Team:                                        +1
      1. A team which fights 4+ warriors (Includes DAing) gets a point
Full Alliance                                     +1
      2. An alliance were ALL teams get a Full Team point earns a point
Full Team/Alliance scores
      3. Will double for the last half (6 rounds) of TW8.
Style Master:                                     +2
      1. No matter how many stylemasters, an individual team can score only +2 per
Duelmaster:                                       +2
      1. Duelmaster points shall be earned separate of stylemaster points.

     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 have fought at least one previous fight in the North Fork
         (DM47 arena) to be able to be declared a champion.
     5.  A Champion can be declared on any round and point factors will begin that
         same turn.  (Must meet above 4 conditions prior to declaring.)

        1.  Bloodfeuds will score points on all four (4) turns.
        2.  There is no limit to which warrior may bloodfeud or how often.
        3.  To score as a bloodfeud, then feud/death must have occurred totally
within the TW8.  (E.g. Feuds created prior to TW8 will not be deemed or scored as a
bloodfeud, but rather as a challenge or downchallenge.

        1.  A downchallenge occurs when a warrior challenges a warrior in a lower
class.  (Lower class is defined as lower than the identical class.  E.g. A challenger
champion class challenging a champion class is a down challenge.)
        2.  In TW8 a standard challenge is up (in recognition points), parallel or
within the identical class but lower recognition.
        3.  No challenge by The Duelmaster shall be deemed a downchallenge.  (This
rule supersedes all other downchallenge rules.)

Tournament Considerations:
        1.  Tournament participation is allowed and ENCOURAGED as a great form of
recognition for North Fork.
        2.  Tournament Victors (live only) won during the course of the contest will
gain a one (1) time bonus of 7 points.  This bonus will apply EACH time a warrior(s)
wins such status.
        3.  Tournament Champions (live only) won during the course of the contest
will gain a one (1) time bonus of 15 points.  This bonus will apply EACH time a
warrior(s) win such status.
        4.  Points awarded for tournament participation are are 1 for 1 entrant, 3
for 2 entrants, 6 for 3 entrants, 10 for 4 entrants, and 15 for 5 entrants.  A TV
scores 7 points additional or a TC scores 15 points additional.  Death in a
tournament results in an additional -3 score.
        5.  Points for entrants, TVs, TCs, and tournament deaths 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 300, points will be credited on North Fork
turn 301 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 four (4) teams/managers allowed per alliance
for the Turf War VII.  The minimum is two (2).
        4.  The Dark Arena may be used on the first FE turn (e.g. no arena or
tournament fights) only, of every warrior, without penalty.
        5.  If at any time, the Moderators determine that any non-TW team in the
arena is aiding and/or abetting any TW alliance or team, the affected points won by
the gifted team/alliance will be disallowed and the aiding non-TW team will be asked
to desist from play in the arena until after the Turf War concludes.

The Turf War is meant to be a "winner takes all" contest.  However, for TW8, a prize
(RU cert) will be awarded each of the twelve turns to the individual team/manager
that fights five fights and has the best w/l record that turn. (Tiebreakers are in
this order -- kills, recognition points earned.)  All prizes and 100% of the Gift
Certificates will be awarded to the Captain of the winning alliance at the end of the
competition.  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.

     All entry fees (rollup certs) are awarded to the winning alliance, except for
the twelve reserved for the individual winning manager each week.)
     The following prizes have been secured from RSI:
        1.  Renaming of the North Fork (DM 47) arena;
        2.  Renaming of all Dark Arena Monsters (two for each manager in the winning
alliance, and two additional for the captain of the alliance).
        3.  Known Favorites for one DM47 warrior on each team of the winning alliance
(warrior must be ranked Initiate or above, must be alive, and must have at least one
DM47 arena fight to receive this award).
        4.  +1 Skill bonus (three) for each manager on the winning alliance.  Bonus
potions must be applied to living warriors from DM 47, no more than two skills per
        5.  +1 Skill bonus potion (one) for each and every individual manager who
fights in all 12 rounds AND 54 fights of the Turf War.  Bonus potion must be applied
to a living warrior from (DM 47)
        6. Two additional rollup certs for each manager of the winning alliance from
     These RSI awards will be listed by the Moderator for claiming from RSI (Lee)
within 4 turns of the end of TW VI. The certs will be mailed to the winning alliance
by the Moderators within two weeks of the end of the TW.

The Moderators for this event will be Oz and Master Darque.  They will arbitrate all
dealings during the course of the contest.  Their decisions will be final.  All
questions, comments, and scoring disputes may be directed to Land of Oz or Darque
Forces via diplo in DM 47.  Managers with internet access may send a private message
to [The Consortium] or [Darque] on the Duel2 Forums.  Lastly, you may also email
questions, comments, and scoring disputes to rebelnerfherder at yahoo dot com or
wfms101 at aol dot com.

Please note there have been rule changes from the last Turf War.  Please read them

This contest will begin in late July 2012 following the Summer FTF.

                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     I made it!  Duelmaster and Lord Protector!  I can tell you that it took a lot of
time and effort and losing to edge my way to the top.  Now I am here and I am
downright enthusiastic about saying "good-bye."  I am taking my popcorn and my candy
coating and going on a retirement binge.  I hope my 401K holds out!
     So for my last words, I will tell you about me.  I was born a 12-6-15-21-9-10-11
+1 riposte, +1 decise good damage, VL endu striker.  I learned well at a 2.63 skill
learn rate.I learned mostly decise, followed by attack.
I think my favorite weapon is either the SC or the BS.
     SC 7-49-6
     BS 5-11-2
     All others (QS, SS, HA, DA) @ 2-34-1
I have Master in decise, adexes in Attack and Init, and an expert riposte.
I did best against slashers (5-1).
And worst against bashers and total parries (both 0-2).
The others:
     PR 1-0
     ST 1-0
     PL 4-3
     WS, PS, LU (all 1-1)
Not much of a record at 14-11-1 for such a nice design, but good enough to now call
myself Lord Protector.
     You get one last shot at me.  Enjoy the try.
          Cracker Jacks, Duelmaster

                                      SPY REPORT

     It's me, The Unknown Spymaster here with my bag to give you the news on last 
week's fights.  Say good-bye to BLACK LIGHTNING II, as they are pushed from the 
coveted top team spot by the THE MYRMIDONS stable.  For every winner there is a 
loser.  Speaking of losers, lets take a look at SUDDENLY, THE VAN, who went down to 
2nd from 6th.  Life is tough.  Coming up with a solid 3-2-0 outing, THE MYRMIDONS has 
advanced 3 places in the rankings.  And falling like a basher in the top ten was 
BOMREX, who dropped 8 points after a disappointing (to say the least) bout with 
ROSANA SABEL.  Unlike most arenas, CRACKER JACKS managed to get his challenge off 
against the 23-22-1 MORIS NAHR.  Well, everybody's pal CRACKER JACKS moved his record 
to 15-11-1 by defeating MORIS NAHR in the Duelmaster's Title Bout and gaining 10 
recognition points.  4 out of 5 gladiators surveyed protect the body, so try and 
avoid aiming at that location.   
     Here is other news that is of note.  Did you hear that OLLIS HEROES was most 
avoided team this week?  Well, knowing the personal hygiene of OLLIS HEROES' 
warriors, I'm not surprised!  Okay, so I may not be funny, but catch OLDIES' act in 
the arena.  Those acrobats seem to be fairly deft at running from OLLIS HEROES.  And 
who is this SAM TALL you ask, with 84 points and a 19-27-0 record.  Ooh, the tales I 
could tell!  In a touching display by a 'touched' warrior, LIFE SCOUT went after SAM 
TALL, who was higher by 18 points.  Well, when the dust settled, LIFE SCOUT defeated 
     Being a spy is great--other people die and you spend the rest of the day 
drinking to their memory.  Better tanked than dead!  Ask not the elves for counsel, 
for they will say both yes and no.  Silly buggers, eh?   
     Well, there's the manager of the TELORINTHE giving me the 'cut' sign (or is that 
'They're going to strangle you in the alley?).  Okay, so I may not be the world's 
best comedian, but then you guys aren't the world's best warriors.  Its been real, 
and its been fun, but it hasn't been real fun...-- The Unknown Spymaster

Floyd -- My mop is like a whiffle.  I hate them both.  But I don't seem to have it
with any weapon.  It must be me.  (Or the management?)  Sigh. -- Custodian
P.S.  My janitorial vote goes for a management problem.  I need better coaching.

What you need, Custodian, is better conditioning, actually MUCH better conditioning,
and better listening skills. -- Coach

Moris Nahr -- Thanks for being the one to propel me to Lord Protectorship.  Now no
one will be able to steal my prizes in the box.  Here's to you and fine candy
coating. -- Cracker Jacks, Duelmaster

Slugbait -- With the team I currently have to work with, if you cannot get above .500
against them, you need to be playing more HW.  (wink) -- Coach

Slight Adjustment -- It was my day. -- Circle K

Sanger -- Come on!  That's not so fair.  How am I going to get more merit badges if
people like you keep on beating up on me?  Bullies! -- Life Scout

Faber Caster -- I don't like cleaning up all your erasings.  No wonder I was too
tired to fight. -- Custodian

Indiana Jones -- You played that well, my friend.  A well-deserved victory.  Kudos.
-- Contract Bridge

Well, I would like to think my Oldies are better than a 2-3.  I'd just better up my
management skills. -- Coach

Health.  Humility.  Honor. -- Coach and The Oldies

Sam Tall -- Not the best style match up for you. -- Floyd

Rosana -- You sure hit hard when you hit.  It's almost like you were trying to hurt
me. -- Levi

Southbound -- And off to the DA I go.  Thanks!  Thanks a lot. -- Legweak

Ben10 -- Now if you would have critted 10 times I would have been in trouble. --

Bomrex -- I wouldn't have fallen down if the beef hadn't been tainted. -- Beef

Custodian -- Um, hate to tell you this but wrong kind of "roids."  Think the body
building ones. -- Floyd

1-1 and you still lead the overall by a wide margin. -- slugbait

Aunty -- I'll ty to be good.  I really will. ;) -- Basso

slugbait -- Well, you'll do what you have to do.  Hard not to over-challenge in some
of these small arenas. -- Jorja, not inclined to feel grudges unless there's
deliberate killing because I hate recruiting

Our congratulations to Cracker Jacks. -- Jorja and the Middle Way

All -- I've been involved in a bunch of non-dueling activities lately (dueling is
easier, frankly) and don't have time for fight-by-fight personals today.  So I'll
just say:

To those we fought -- Good fight. -- We who fought you

Besides, it was an oh-fer.  I just don't feel up to reading the gory details. --
