     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)
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. 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
         round.
Duelmaster:                                       +2
      1. Duelmaster points shall be earned separate of stylemaster points.

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.
     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.)

Bloodfeuds:
        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.

Downchallenges:
        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.

Prizes:
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
warrior.
        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
RSI.
     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 late July 2012 following the Summer FTF.
                             **TW8 Revision 06-05-12**

                                 THE GUARDIAN'S FORUM
                       Reflections by the Captain of the Guard

     What a surprise to be here.  Don King falls to a commission flunky, which goes
to prove to you that he can't really fight anyway.  I'll do my best to stay here next
turn, but all of Crip's Crap are running the same strategies as the turn before with
no challenges or avoids, so we'll see what happens.  Strats for next turn have
already been sent in, but those challenges/avoid had to be done based on the turn 585
newsletter.
     Do you realize that both Home Guard and Crysalis have Bashers on the throne now.
Who says we don't belong in ADM.

Wahoo
Here to Phoenix
Captain of the Guard

                             REPORT FROM WITHIN THE TOWER

     Okay, here we are again, lots of stuff happening, some of it in the arena.  (You
don't want to hear about the new eaves, do you?)
     Arrogance was most avoided, and rightly so.  Most of the avoiding was done by
Minions of Chaos.  Ace of Base seems to have gotten the most challenges, though it's
hard to be sure.  The notes are unclear, having been made by a reporter with a bag
over his head.  Silly bugger.
     Twenty-two fights, eight challenges, three standbys.  Doing good here today!

     RABID TOAD (98-2767) (9-4-4,46) of BLOOD FROGS 2 fought BEAULIEU (41-3057) (23-
16-0,61) of WRATHMEN.  RABID TOAD was overpowered by BEAULIEU in a 1 minute uneven
fight.  It takes the Bloodgames killers a while to catch on to our ways.
     HAMMERHEAD (35-4129) (33-33-2,71) of SEA DOGS fought BWIN EVOC (71-1965) (19-15-
1,40) of WRATHMEN II.  HAMMERHEAD handily defeated BWIN EVOC in an exciting 1 minute
one-sided contest.  Probably hammered his head.
     PERCY QUIN 24 (82-29478) (20-41-0,100) of ATTACKO/TCLONES05 fought BAKED
CONVINCIA (98-2341) (17-15-4,93) of SHEWISH BANQUET.  PERCY QUIN 24 was savagely
defeated by BAKED CONVINCIA in a 5 minute bout.  Baked Convincia (good with fresh
cream) was the most popular warrior today.
     PORKY PIG (72-5953) (28-16-2,145) of MEAT YOUR MAKER fought KOLACTAN KABOB (65-
7072) (21-3-3,100) of SHEWISH BUFFET.  PORKY PIG was beaten by KOLACTAN KABOB in an
action packed 1 minute fight.  I foresee a fresh batch of kabobs coming up.
     OWAIN HARLSON (35-3130) (63-108-1,106) of CHILDREN OF LLYR fought DOMINIC (27-
3085) (32-18-0,93) of WRATHMEN.  OWAIN HARLSON was overpowered by DOMINIC in a 1
minute mismatched conflict.  Tedious, but not surprising.
     RUBBER BULLET (54-2503) (33-15-1,178) of USELESS TOOLS fought HYDROPONICUS (29-
4605) (25-8-0,126) of BLUNT FORCE.  RUBBER BULLET demolished HYDROPONICUS in an
exciting 3 minute one-sided bout.  Rubber is our top wall of steel.

     LEE LEE LO LEE (38-4653) (30-10-2,158) of INQUISITION CLONES fought HEARTBREAK
(36-4612) (20-3-3,102) of WRATHMEN.  LEE LEE LO LEE devastated HEARTBREAK in an
exciting 1 minute one-sided brawl.  Lee is our master striker.
     IMMOVEABLE OBJECT (59-2110) (46-19-1,175) of NOT QUITE fought SHARK BAIT (33-
7652) (29-25-0,108) of SEA DOGS.  IMMOVEABLE OBJECT was viciously subdued by SHARK
BAIT in an exciting 3 minute fray.  Ouch!  This fight resulted in the most movement
in the rankings, with Shark Bait going up fifty-six and Immoveable Object down
thirty-eight.
     KIANA (24-3878) (20-12-0,177) of WRATHMEN fought LAZY LOOKOUT (42-4504) (38-33-
1,131) of DUNGEON CELL.  KIANA was overpowered by LAZY LOOKOUT in a crowd pleasing 1
minute one-sided duel.  Lazy is the leading parry-lunger.
     HOCKEY DUCK (39-937) (40-31-1,177) of DUCKS UNLIMITED fought SHARON SHEW (101-
25) (0-0-0,181) of the Louts Local 101.  HOCKEY DUCK slimly lost to SHARON SHEW in a
2 minute conflict.  Hard luck for the Duck, who is the rippingest ripper.
     CATFISH HUNTER (5-3315) (25-26-1,184) of PARTY ANIMALS fought SURLY DECKHAND
(21-6568) (56-65-1,164) of SEA DOGS.  CATFISH HUNTER devastated SURLY DECKHAND in a 2
minute one-sided battle.  Catfish is top parry-striker.
     DON KING (47-5374) (37-35-3,190) of ROYAL FLUSH fought ASSUR (18-7821) (36-90-
2,156) of ARROGANCE.  DON KING was demolished by ASSUR in a crowd pleasing 1 minute
mismatched match.  That's arrogance for you:  Down with kings!

The challenges:
     ARIOCH (21-7423) (17-9-1,58) of MINIONS OF CHAOS challenged AMPUTATOR FROG (99-
3206) (11-10-4,65) of BLOOD FROG 3.  Up 7.  ARIOCH was vanquished by AMPUTATOR FROG
in a 1 minute one-sided Challenge duel.  That was a lot of amputation in one minute.
     WHAT'S A VOLKSIE? (38-4563) (16-6-0,66) of TEAM FLOYD challenged HOFFA (18-9369)
(27-63-0,60) of ARROGANCE.  Down 6.  WHAT'S A VOLKSIE? overcame HOFFA in an action
packed 2 minute Challenge melee.  Hoffa, this particular Hoffa out of all others, was
the most impervious total parry, and it was not enough.
     PASTRAMI ELEMENTAL (96-3748) (12-6-3,53) of ARCANE GREATS FTF challenged HOFFA
(18-8478) (22-93-1,49) of ARROGANCE.  Down 4.  PASTRAMI ELEMENTAL devastated HOFFA in
a 3 minute mismatched Challenge match.  People have told Hoffa to lay off the spicy

     SHOCKING (2-5352) (17-15-0,75) of INQUISITION SL5 challenged DOMINIC (30-3545)
(25-20-0,90) of WRATHMEN.  Up 15.  SHOCKING was devastated by DOMINIC in a popular 1
minute uneven Challenge brawl.  There are days like that, Shocking.

     SCROD BOY (38-4675) (24-28-1,101) of INQUISITION CLONES challenged ACE OF BASE
(47-6905) (23-13-0,148) of ROYAL FLUSH.  Up 47.  SCROD BOY was defeated by ACE OF
BASE in an exciting 2 minute Challenge fight.  No surprise here.

(35-3030) (49-129-1,140) of CHILDREN OF LLYR.  Up 16.  SYSTEM OF A DOWN was
slaughtered by HUW AP HUW in a 1 minute Challenge brawl.  Going back for more skills,
System?  Not this time.  Huw remains the overall popularity leader.
     EM (15-3737) (33-52-0,171) of LORDS OF DARKNESS challenged PHONELESS CORD (54-
2018) (44-31-0,200) of USELESS TOOLS.  Up 29.  EM subdued PHONELESS CORD in an
exciting 2 minute gory Challenge melee.  Em is Mr. Accuracy, the leading aimed blow.

6694) (28-14-1,159) of ROYAL FLUSH.  Up 8.  POOP SLINGER viciously subdued JACK KNIFE
in a 4 minute Challenge fight.  The Slinger is slasher-supreme here today.

For the title, a pair of fights, read 'em and weep:
     Former Captain of the Guard WAHOO (26-3916) (29-18-1,232) of HERE TO PHOENIX
fought NAIHREN (101-27) (0-0-0,240) of the Louts Local 101.  WAHOO was vanquished by
NAIHREN in a 1 minute one-sided duel.  Despite this disappointing loss, Wahoo remains
the top basher.  And is now least popular.
     Into the vaccuum left by Wahoo's loss:  ROWDY YOBBO (20-3429) (43-43-1,218) of
SPARF! fought LONG-NECKED LARRY (101-22) (0-0-0,181) of the Louts Local 101.  ROWDY
YOBBO overpowered LONG-NECKED LARRY in a popular 1 minute uneven Title match.  Which
makes Rowdy, our top lunger, Captain of the Guard by default.  Show us you deserve it
next time, Rowdy, and good luck to you.

                               PERSONAL CORRESPONDENCE

Scrod Boy -- Scrod are decidedly less dangerous than sharks. -- Shark Bait

Heartbreak -- That was more like a heart attack! -- Hammerhead

Em -- Hmm, I've never beaten your style before, and I certainly wasn't expecting to
win that way. -- Hockey Duck

Kiana -- Oink, Oink, hogging the limelight on your way to the top. -- Porky Pig

Huw Ap Huw -- For a single minute fight, that sure was back and forth -- Ace of Base

Surly Deckhand -- I thought I was doomed when you started parrying my punches.  Good
slugfest nonetheless. -- Catfish Hunter

Jack Knife -- My TV came back in the era of color w/remote. -- Kiana
P.S.  Your boss had to blow some dust off his notes to find that one!  Impressive.

Porky Pig -- Hows the stuttering problem?  Gotten any better? -- Kiana

Hoffa -- So soon?  I was just getting warmed up.

Kolactan Kabob -- Free for the taking!  One slightly used morning star.  No scratches
or dents. -- Dominic
P.S.  Not that weapon selection had much to do with the whoopin' you gave me.

Pastrami Elemental -- Just the way I like it. -- Dominic

Ace of Base -- Right, a good show.  I can do that... wouldn't mind a win now and
then, though. -- Huw ap Huw
P.S.  Yeah, okay, not your fault, I was cursed from the moment of my entry into the
arena.  I'm lucky to have survived.

System of a Down -- Ignore Modeen's comments.  I am without, okay, with few parallels
here as a trainer.  This is a valuable service I provide. -- Owain Harlson, looking
for a bright side

Hockey Duck -- I'm allergic to duck down. -- Huw ap Huw
