THE TURF WARS ARE COMING!
          THE TURF WARS ARE COMING!

     Gather your alliance-mates and friends.  Prepare your warriors and teams.  Turf
War NINE (TW9) is beginning the mid-Feb 2014 turn right after the winter Face in DM47
North Fork (currently MAMBOLAND).
     Alliances -- 2 to 4 teams
     Cost      -- two Rollup CERTS
     Prizes    -- certs, potions, honor & glory
     Length    -- 10 turns
     Moderators -- same old Oz and Master Darque

Rules, including details, are below.
.....................................................................................
                                 *TURF WAR 9 RULES*

Starting Mid-Feb 2014 (10 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 participant's
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 or Chatzy will not be accepted.
         a.  No scores will be tabulated until two RSI Gift Certificates are
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:
Team Points
    a.  Fights made: (includes DA fights)
1 = 0 points
2 = 0 points
3 = 1 point
4 = 3 points
5 = 5 points
     b.  Wins earned;
1 = 1 point
2 = 3 points
3 = 6 points
4 = 10 points
5 = 15 points
     c.  Champion win = 3 additional points 
     d.  Down Challenge = (-5) points each (DM is exempt from DC rule)
     e.  Team with most wins per round earns 4 additional points
         (If ties, points are split 2/2, 1/1/1, 1/1/1/1, no points if 5+ tie)

Alliance Points (Rounds 1 through 5)
     a. Fights made (DA fights count as a fight made)
All (each) team of the alliance fights 1 to 3 wariors = 3 points
All (each) team fights 4+ warriors = 6 points
All (each) team fights all five warriors = 9
     b. Alliance with most wins per that round = 5 points
Tie breakers, in order, are: least losses, most total recognition points (if still
tied after that, no points awarded).
Alliance Points (Rounds 6 through 10 as alliance point scoring doubles)
     c. Fights made (DA fights count as a fight made)
All (each) team of the alliance fights 1 to 3 wariors = 6 points
All (each) team fights 4+ warriors = 12 points
All (each) team fights all five warriors = 18
     d. Alliance with most wins per that round = 10 points
Tie breakers, in order, are: least losses, most total recognition points if still
tied after that, no points awarded).

Champions:
     1.  A Champion may be declared, but one is not mandatory.
It is to the team's/alliance's advantage that you do so.
     2.  Only one Champion allowed per manager at any given time.
     3.  Champions that graduate or are killed by another warrior or 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)

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.)

Downchallenges:
     1.  A downchallenge occurs when a warrior challenges a warrior with lesser
recognition points.
     2.  No challenge or bloodfeud by The Duelmaster shall be deemed a downchallenge.
     3.  No challenge of the Duelmaster shall be deemed a downchallenge.
     4.  Bloodfeuds against warriors with lesser recognition are deemed
downchallenges.

Tournament Considerations:
     1.  Tournament participation is allowed and ENCOURAGED as a great form of
recognition for North Fork.
     2.  It is an opportunity to gain skills and preferred challenging within the
Turf War.

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 at any time 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.  All prizes, except the
Endu award listed below, 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.

The following prizes have been secured from RSI:
     1.  Renaming of the North Fork (DM 47) arena;
     2.  Renaming of all Dark Arena Monsters 
     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 10 rounds AND 45 fights of the Turf War.  Bonus potion must be applied to a
living warrior from (DM 47) (Endu award)
     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 noting the following concepts/changes:
1. simpler scoring based primarily on wins and fight participation
2. DA is treated as simply another fight
3. Down-challenging is penalized
4. no emphasis/scoring on kills
5. 10 rounds

                             REPORT FROM WITHIN THE TOWER

     General chatter courtesy of Debby Tonte:

     "Ready for some action-packed adventure, some thrills, chills and spills?  Well
fergit it, cause this is the spy report for HOME GUARD.  MVP award for JACK DANIELS?
I C DRUNK PEOPLE's proud of him after beating TEDDY RUXPIN and getting 27 points.
Talk about yer major upsets!  NAKED LUNCH's match with LAKE SAILOR cost him a loss of
25 points!  And I was just getting used to the ex-Duelmaster's habit of...(!)  (She
never tells.  I hate it that she never TELLS what she knows.)  Oh well, welcome SHARK
BAIT.  Aren't SEA DOGS proud.  (Oh, my.) I hear the top team insists all their
warriors get nine hours sleep.  They want photogenic fighters for PR photos."  Ah,
make that "quick sketches by sidewalk artists."
     "So just why would someone becomes a warrior anyway?  It can't be for these
really neat spyr eports can it?  (Of course it can!)  SOUL WARRIORS was HOME GUARD's
most avoided team.  Is there some award for that?  Hhmph!  What kind of warriors are
IMPORTED FOOTBALLERS?  SOUL WARRIORS, an easy team to beat if I ever saw one, can't
get them to accept an invitation!  Like, is RALTUMAN OMELET popular, or what?  He was
challenged the most in all of HOME GUARD!  He's got a 32-14-2, is that good?  (He's a
good egg.)  Some fights are really unfair.  How do you think LI KUI feels about being
challenged by PIRES, 19 points above him?  Is this how IMPORTED FOOTBALLERS advances,
by having their members (PIRES) fight people that are really below them (LI KUI)?
RUBBER BULLET must not be a good enough fighter to get in fair fights.  He challenged
CRIXUS.  13 is a big difference.  (Well, that's what they tell me.)  (Her comment,
that one, and *I* didn't tell her.  It must've been Snide Clemens.)  I thought RUBBER
BULLET showed great skill and promise when he lost to CRIXUS.  All right, so I slept
through it!  Big deal!
     "Man, all these warriors dying and killing each other!  Don't you guys ever give
it a break?  Fight, fight, fight.  Is that all you guys can do?
     "I really didn't, you know, study when I was a kid.  Who would've guessed I'd be
a famous spy reporter?  I gotta leave.  HOME GUARD is like such a dump, and you guys
smell too much!  Its been really albendranius!  Later, guys-- Debby Tonte"

The bare details:
     Twenty-eight fights, four challenges, two standbys.  I don't think anybody died.

     EUROPEAN HAND BULL (73-3099) (18-11-0,65) of THE BULLS fought TICKLE ME TIGER
(11-7391) (18-11-2,69) of FURRY FURY.  EUROPEAN HAND BULL handily defeated TICKLE ME
TIGER in a 1 minute one-sided fight.
     SPIDERPIG (74-4304) (27-13-0,74) of HOMER'S PETS fought CROUCHING HAMSTER (21-
6184) (27-25-1,80) of D.R.I.  SPIDERPIG overpowered CROUCHING HAMSTER in an action
packed 1 minute one-sided fight.
     NAKED LUNCH (78-2917) (21-19-0,60) of SHEWISH BUFFET fought LAKE SAILOR (101-2)
(0-0-0,30) of the Louts Local 101.  NAKED LUNCH was overpowered by LAKE SAILOR in a 1
minute uneven competition.  Next time, wear something, Lunch.  Armor, maybe.
     MONTY BURNS (82-55805) (17-28-0,65) of NUCLEAR WASTES fought HOFFA (18-8478)
(29-121-1,52) of ARROGANCE.  MONTY BURNS viciously subdued HOFFA in a popular 2
minute gruesome fray.

     FROG FRACTURE (98-3813) (12-2-3,57) of MURDEROUS FROGS 3 fought ARTHUR DENT (11-
7305) (22-29-0,51) of THE HITCHHIKERS.  FROG FRACTURE was demolished by ARTHUR DENT
in a 1 minute one-sided melee.  Make that "Frog Smashed and Splintered."
     KATANA (31-6349) (23-7-1,86) of AVENGERS fought INNARD SKINARD (98-3573) (9-4-
4,41) of T-3.  KATANA overpowered INNARD SKINARD in a popular 1 minute gory uneven
fight.
     VULCAN (99-3864) (8-4-4,43) of DODEKATHEON fought URA GONER (8-5214) (9-1-0,60)

2882) (25-14-2,90) of SHEWISH BUFFET.  HUCKLE CAT won victory over KUNG PAO KOLACTAN
in a crowd pleasing 1 minute fray.  You can't beat a cat with a food fight.

     FURIOUS FROGPALER (35-4309) (14-7-0,49) of BATTLE FROGS fought HOFFA (18-9369)
(33-92-0,46) of ARROGANCE.  FURIOUS FROGPALER overpowered HOFFA in a popular 2 minute

4347) (16-5-2,55) of BATTLE FROGS.  MANNY LEHMAN was bested by THE DARK FROG in a
popular 1 minute contest.  Is it my imagination, or are the Frogs doing really well
today?
     NERO (29-5707) (31-35-1,107) of TREKKERS fought WHAT'S A VOLKSIE? (38-4563) (32-
25-0,91) of TEAM FLOYD.  NERO was overpowered by WHAT'S A VOLKSIE? in a popular 1
minute bloody one-sided bout.
     RABID TOAD (98-2767) (16-21-4,137) of BLOOD FROGS 2 fought LONE WOLF (31-162)
(39-51-1,124) of AVENGERS.  RABID TOAD devastated LONE WOLF in an exciting 1 minute
brutal one-sided brawl.  Is a toad a frog?  I thought that was not the case.  But
maybe only a lady frog would care.
     SULU (29-5705) (34-32-0,137) of TREKKERS fought THRESHPACK (50-138) (33-39-
0,140) of PUBLIC ENEMY.  SULU vanquished THRESHPACK in a crowd pleasing 2 minute one-
sided fray.

     XAVIER (75-2071) (20-6-2,102) of RUNEBLADES fought NINJA FERD (101-30) (0-0-
0,130) of the Louts Local 101.  XAVIER was defeated by NINJA FERD in a 1 minute
struggle.  That is both standbys as winners.
     DOPPLEGANGER (81-1382) (26-30-0,119) of MONSTER MANUAL fought HARE BINGER (81-
1790) (23-16-2,98) of FURRY FURY.  DOPPLEGANGER overcame HARE BINGER in an action
packed 2 minute fight.
     NASTY NES (50-142) (41-39-1,150) of PUBLIC ENEMY fought GLASS JOE (56-3847) (21-
12-0,109) of PUNCH-OUT!  NASTY NES bested GLASS JOE in a 2 minute bloody bout.
     DAGAN (21-7201) (32-25-0,176) of BLOOD AND SAND fought SLAP YOURSELF SILLY (21-
4697) (44-42-0,166) of SORE LOSERS.  DAGAN devastated SLAP YOURSELF SILLY in a 1
minute one-sided battle.
     RUPTURE (99-3463) (21-16-4,163) of BLOOD GANG fought RED ALERT (50-139) (40-33-
0,122) of PUBLIC ENEMY.  RUPTURE demolished RED ALERT in a 1 minute bloody mismatched
match.

     PHIL HELLMUTH (1-7842) (32-11-1,179) of POKER GREATS fought DROW (81-1774) (27-
25-1,102) of MONSTER MANUAL.  PHIL HELLMUTH overpowered DROW in a popular 1 minute
one-sided melee.
     GOPHER BAROQUE (2-3359) (75-65-0,192) of CREAM OF THE SLOP fought IRONIC TWIST
(65-7198) (30-2-1,177) of THE MOTHERSHIP CE.  GOPHER BAROQUE was overpowered by
IRONIC TWIST in a popular 2 minute gory uneven duel.  I kinda like that baroque
ornament on the armor.  Useless, of course, but really, um, ornamental.
     DON KING (47-5374) (45-41-3,190) of ROYAL FLUSH fought ROTTING ROLAND (32-5437)
(32-17-0,156) of THE WALKING DEAD.  DON KING vanquished ROTTING ROLAND in a 1 minute
uneven duel.
     TEDDY RUXPIN (11-6399) (40-26-1,196) of LORDS OF CHAOS fought JACK DANIELS (41-
3947) (29-15-0,182) of I C DRUNK PEOPLE.  TEDDY RUXPIN was devastated by JACK DANIELS
in a 2 minute one-sided competition.  Jack does that to lots of people.
     CAPTAIN KIRK (29-5754) (36-15-1,203) of TREKKERS fought HORSE D'OEUVRE (61-3635)
(34-6-3,198) of SHEWISH BUFFET.  CAPTAIN KIRK won victory over HORSE D'OEUVRE in a
crowd pleasing 2 minute fight.  So he was hungry, what did you expect him to do?  He
ate.

The challenges:
     PIRES (7-5665) (18-7-0,85) of IMPORTED FOOTBALLERS challenged LI KUI (52-851)

(78-2857) (31-14-2,188) of SHEWISH BUFFET.  Up 7.  HOCKEY DUCK was viciously subdued
by RALTUMAN OMELET in a 2 minute Challenge fight.  Tough egg.  Sorry, can't help the
"egg" comments.

For the title:
     CAO ZHENG (54-85) (44-43-6,238) of ASIAN INVASION fought SHARK BAIT (33-7652)
(51-38-0,217) of SEA DOGS.  CAO ZHENG was bested by SHARK BAIT in a 2 minute Title
brawl.  And now we have a new Captain of the Guard:  Shark Bait.  Congratulations.
This should have the sharks circling closer.
