                       Reflections by the Captain of the Guard

Hello, all,

     Olaf, thanks for the warm introduction.  I am proud and surprised to have become
your Tower Guardian, Madwand's 1st for Home Guard and 2nd in ADM.  Coincidentally,
both have occured since his return to Alastari after a long abscence.  Buddercup, you
put up a valiant effort, thanks for the match and the title.  I will await all
comers.  See you on the sands.

Clever

                             REPORT FROM WITHIN THE TOWER

     Debby Tonte did the office notes on today's fights, and it didn't take her more
than five minutes, half of which she spent flirting with one of the clerks.
     She notes that Gob had the greatest increase in recognition, 27 points, after
beating Diving Hawk, who balanced that by having the greatest loss at 22 points.
     No avoids were issued.  As there was only one challenge, to speak of "most
challenged" would be pointless.  Out of twenty-five fights, eleven involved standbys.
Ah, well.

     LAZY LOOKOUT (42-4504) (22-15-1,31) of DUNGEON CELL fought HERMY (101-4) (0-0-
0,50) of Random Odds and Bods.  LAZY LOOKOUT lost to HERMY in a popular 4 minute
brutal fight.  Lazy indeed!
     PRISONER 0484 (82-49671) (18-38-1,66) of DUNGEON CELL 97 fought MEAN SPIRIT
(101-5) (0-0-0,70) of Random Odds and Bods.  PRISONER 0484 was defeated by MEAN
SPIRIT in an exciting 4 minute gory duel.  Which brings the standbys to 2-0.
     SURLY DECKHAND (21-6568) (32-38-1,70) of SEA DOGS fought HERMY (101-4) (0-0-
0,50) of Random Odds and Bods.  SURLY DECKHAND was devastated by HERMY in a 2 minute
gory one-sided bout.  3-0 for the standbys.
     SALTY (21-6607) (28-31-1,81) of SEA DOGS fought HERMY (101-4) (0-0-0,50) of
Random Odds and Bods.  SALTY was savagely defeated by HERMY in an action packed 3
minute gruesome fray.  4-0 for the standbys.  But can they sustain it?

     FLY FISHER (21-6727) (22-4-1,62) of SEA DOGS fought B&G BOUNCER (101-3) (0-0-
0,30) of Random Odds and Bods.  FLY FISHER overpowered B&G BOUNCER in an exciting 2
minute uneven fight.  4-1 for the standbys.
     FAMINE (21-6826) (15-10-0,77) of DARK AT HEART fought HEMPEN JIG (9-5388) (26-
21-1,59) of SEA DOGS.  FAMINE was overpowered by HEMPEN JIG in a 2 minute bloody
mismatched conflict.  A real fight!  Good work, Jig.
     PRISONER R02 (82-51078) (21-35-1,33) of DUNGEON CELL 4 fought LAKE SAILOR (101-
2) (0-0-0,30) of Random Odds and Bods.  PRISONER R02 overpowered LAKE SAILOR in an
exciting 1 minute brutal one-sided match.  4-2 for the standbys.
     PRISONER BG23 (97-3369) (7-12-5,26) of DUNGEON CELL W10A fought LAKE SAILOR
(101-2) (0-0-0,30) of Random Odds and Bods.  PRISONER BG23 was devastated by LAKE
SAILOR in a 2 minute gory mismatched brawl.  5-2.

     REEKY SNEAK (42-4491) (20-7-0,77) of DUNGEON CELL fought HERMY (101-4) (0-0-
0,50) of Random Odds and Bods.  REEKY SNEAK vanquished HERMY in a 1 minute one-sided
fray.  5-3 for the standbys.  Hey, who else to talk about, eh?
     CHATTY CABALIST (42-4488) (29-17-3,68) of DUNGEON CELL fought MEAN SPIRIT (101-
5) (0-0-0,70) of Random Odds and Bods.  CHATTY CABALIST overpowered MEAN SPIRIT in a
crowd pleasing 1 minute one-sided duel.  5-4.
     LAHRS ENNY (39-3400) (26-22-0,89) of CRIMINAL ELEMENT fought SEA LEGS (9-5387)
(23-21-2,68) of SEA DOGS.  LAHRS ENNY was viciously subdued by SEA LEGS in a crowd
pleasing 4 minute bloody bout.  Don't look down on Lahrs for this one.  I've seen the
Sea Legs myself, and... wow!  That's all I can say: wow!
     STOWAWAY (18-9722) (22-23-4,93) of SEA DOGS fought MIRAGE (84-10230) (14-10-
1,71) of DRAGON'S GUARD V.  STOWAWAY devastated MIRAGE in a 1 minute one-sided
battle.  Odd, for a minute there I read "Mirage" for "Migraine."  I'm in favor of
migraines being devastated, but more ambivalent with regard to mirages.
     ALARIC (28-3787) (23-12-0,113) of THE WARLORDS II fought IRON-PLATED IRV (101-
10) (0-0-0,150) of Random Odds and Bods.  ALARIC was subdued by IRON-PLATED IRV in a
crowd pleasing 2 minute competition.  6-4.  Still one more standby fight to go, but
you can see they'll be coming out of today with a winning record.

     GAR & BRILL (38-4252) (77-135-1,145) of JUST BECAUSE fought SHADOW BLADE (46-
2972) (22-8-6,99) of SERPENT'S HOLD.  GAR & BRILL handily defeated SHADOW BLADE in an
exciting 1 minute one-sided bout.  Ah, that's bad, not but what Gar's experience
gives him the edge.  We don't want him to have an edge.  We want him OUT of here.
     SPARE ANCHOR (18-9610) (35-23-1,168) of SEA DOGS fought TAVIS CADFALSON (35-
1419) (54-126-3,170) of CHILDREN OF LLYR.  SPARE ANCHOR defeated TAVIS CADFALSON in
an exciting 4 minute fight.  Now, this is odd, although it makes sense that it took
so long.  But Tavis should be used to dragging around a heavy weight, what with his
record.
     DIVING HAWK (3-2665) (45-65-0,172) of WE BIG WOHPUM fought GOB (51-5436) (22-14-
1,135) of SEA DOGS.  DIVING HAWK was defeated by GOB in an action packed 1 minute
duel.  Ah, this is the fight that caused the most change in recognition.
     PRIZMATYK WAHL (73-4252) (29-18-2,163) of MAGIC MAYHEM fought OWAIN HARLSON (35-
3130) (47-73-1,126) of CHILDREN OF LLYR.  PRIZMATYK WAHL won victory over OWAIN
HARLSON in a 2 minute gruesome duel.  I could make some crude joke here about Owain
"hitting the wall," but then he'd make an equally rude comment in reply, I have no
doubt.  Perhaps he was unable to cope with the spelling peculiarities.
     JETSAM (1-8172) (32-34-1,151) of SEA DOGS fought SMOKE (68-5868) (23-12-0,171)
of ZOMBIE SQUAD II II.  JETSAM overcame SMOKE in a 5 minute melee.  Why?  Who knows?

     NIGHTBLADE (6-2008) (35-48-0,196) of THE DARK LORDS fought PRISONER BG11 (99-
1620) (26-27-4,179) of DUNGEON CELL 508C.  NIGHTBLADE was overcome by PRISONER BG11
in a 1 minute fight.  You see how it is, those Prisoners are mad to get out.  Not
sure they've got a clear view of the hazards they're longing to embrace, things
like... income tax, utility bills, inconvenient visitors (usually relatives) when you
least want to see them....
     PRISONER 0103 (82-33733) (57-69-0,192) of DUNGEON CELL 21 fought NO CHASER (33-
6490) (35-31-0,160) of JOYS OF BOOZE.  PRISONER 0103 beat NO CHASER in a 1 minute
brawl.  The Prisoner chases?
     CORRUPT TURNKEY (42-4487) (28-8-3,191) of DUNGEON CELL fought OSWALD ORC (101-
24) (0-0-0,181) of Random Odds and Bods.  CORRUPT TURNKEY devastated OSWALD ORC in a
popular 1 minute bloody uneven brawl.  The last standby today, bringing their total
to 6-5.
     KEEL HAULER (9-5389) (29-5-0,197) of SEA DOGS fought MARY ANN (47-4378) (23-33-
0,166) of SCREEN DREAMS.  KEEL HAULER devastated MARY ANN in an exciting 1 minute
one-sided fight.  She kept sitting on the keel, which annoyed him.
     MATH OP OWAIN (35-1418) (67-113-1,185) of CHILDREN OF LLYR fought BUDDERCUP (60-
5967) (48-49-0,200) of BUMS 'R' US.  MATH OP OWAIN savagely defeated BUDDERCUP in an
action packed 4 minute bloody fight.  Somehow I don't see Math as a purveyor of
savagery.  Shows how much I know, eh?

The challenge:  NACHTRAG (51-4310) (21-7-0,135) of RESURRECTION challenged HUW AP HUW
(35-3030) (34-93-1,150) of CHILDREN OF LLYR.  Up 15.  NACHTRAG was viciously subdued
by HUW AP HUW in a 5 minute Challenge fight.  I hardly know what to say!  How about:
What took you so long, Huw?

For the title:
     CLEVER (50-2192) (50-24-2,205) of RANDOM BLADES fought PRISONER 0118 (82-33748)
(43-70-0,212) of DUNGEON CELL 24.  CLEVER was subdued by PRISONER 0118 in a 2 minute
Title melee.  A good try for Clever, and a better try for Prisoner 0118.
Congratulations to everyone who showed up today, and a couple of words of advice:
Stay out of the sun, and drink lots of fluids (beer will do).

                               PERSONAL CORRESPONDENCE

We tried to tell Jorja that the presence of a lengthy all-arena ad relieved us of the
need to write personal personals, but she wasn't having any.  Bummer. -- Math

Nightblade -- Come for more skills?  My supply is not endless, but while I have
anything to teach, you're welcome to it. -- Math op Owain
P.S.  Though I wouldn't mind a win.

Olaf -- It is true I have a bad record, but I chalk that up to a dire beginning:
sent out without managerial attention to run 1-1-1, no armor, no weapons, striking at
and protecting the head, and I SURVIVED this for a year.  But it leaves a mark. --
Math

     That, I believe.  Maybe a lot of marks... they're called scars. -- Olaf

Nachtrag -- Have you died, then?  To survive that is a feat indeed. -- Tavis
Cadfalson

Olaf -- I'm not as good a teacher as Math, though I learned in the same very hard
school. -- Tavis

Spare Anchor -- I reckon you could anchor just about anything.  Talk about immovable!
-- Huw ap Huw

Olaf -- Yeah, the heat's been bad.  But I think it was that stew last night, it was
like lead in my stomach. -- Huw

     Ah... troll stew?  That'll do it. -- Olaf

Gob -- Well, I got to see the Gob hobblin'.  I even got to enjoy it. -- Owain Harlson

Olaf -- Are you saying I read that wrong?  I could've sworn the Greywand herself
stopped the fight and saluted me.... -- Owain

     You were hit on the head, right?

                                 *TURF WAR VII RULES*
                            Starting Nov 2010 (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)
newsletter.
        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. (Lack of participant indication of
joining and/or lack of 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 newsletter
by the alliance Captain they will represent.
               c.  Only one (1) team per player may compete.  No multiple teams or
aliases will be allowed.  Violations will result in immediate 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 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. (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
Up Challenge                        +2     -2     +5       -5
Down Challenge                       0     -2      0       -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***                                        -5
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,
    ** A Champion's double score applies to his score only -- not to the opponent.
    *** No warrior may be substituted without the proper use of the DA or arena death
or death in a tournament. 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
tournament participation are 5 for any entrant, 15 for a TV and 25 for a TC. Death in
a tournament negates any tournament points gained and results in a-5 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:
Spy Report mention (team name only)              +2 
     1. No matter how many mentions or stylemasters, an individual team can score
only +2 in each category per round
Style Master                                     +2
      1. No matter how many mentions or stylemasters, an individual team can score
only +2 in each category per round
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 have fought at least one previous fight in the North Fork
(DM47 arena) to be able to be declared a champion. 

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 15 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 25 points.  This bonus will apply EACH time a warrior(s) win
such status.
        4.  Points awarded for tournament participation are 5 for any entrant, (15
total for a TV and 25 total for a TC.) However, death in a tournament will result in
a -5 score for that tournament. (If a warrior TV's and is subsequently killed in a
tournament the points scored are -5 for that tournament.)
        5.  Points for TVs and 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 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 five (5) teams allowed per alliance for the
Turf War VII.
        4.  The Dark Arena may be used on the first turn only, of every warrior,
without penalty.

Prizes:
The Turf War is normally a "winner take all" contest.  However, for TWVII, a prize
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 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);
        3.  Known Favorites for one 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 potion for each manager on the winning alliance.  Bonus
potion must be applied to a living warrior from (DM 47)
        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)
     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.

Moderators:
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
carefully!

This contest will begin in November 2010 following the Fall Mail In.
