                             REPORT FROM WITHIN THE TOWER

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly ANDORAK games.  WELL DON caught the eye of many in the 
gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested EVENING STAR and was awarded 20 
points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, WELL DON put down 
EVENING STAR, causing him to lose 24 points of recognition in the process.  Not for 
nothing has LI'L RED in the past laid claim to the Duelmaster's throne, and this week 
she's proven hers combat skill yet again.  No confirmation, but my sources claim that 
the top team has gained their position using magical aids.  Charmed weapons perhaps?  
     But come now, let us look deeper into the maze of contention and crossed blades 
that is city ANDORAK.   
     What warrior does not hone his years, impatiently waiting for the moment of his 
foe's mortality?  Dark alleys may hide both secrets and assassins.  In the arena 
there is only the brightness of steel.  Keep vigil always!   
     A thought before I go.  Each warrior practices one style, but must not the wise 
manager learn the secrets of them all?  Ahh, but I can hear the spires of a far off 
city calling to me.  I must away!  Till next we meet remember - the pen is mightier 
than the sword, but a maul is a different story!-- Zontani Sharp Eyes

   The Turf Wars are coming. The Turf Wars are coming. Come one; come all. Gather

your alliance or collection of 2-4 teams and join in the competition. Hurry up! While 
Feb 2016 seems so far away, it is only six or so turns away, and it does take a while 
to make sure you have a team in DM47, communicate to find a group, send in certs, 
announce in writing in DM47, etc. etc. Teams of all levels and managers of all types, 
including newbies, find themselves competing quite well in this type of competition. 
Let's make the tenth anniversary (TWX) the biggest and best ever.
     This 10th competition will be hosted and moderated by the triumvirate of Assur, 
Master Darque and Oz The All-Wonderful.    
     Anyone may participate: known alliances, new alliances, or temporary alliances 
created solely to compete in the Turf War!  

To participate, each alliance must:
    a.  Announce the Captain of the alliance in the North Fork (DM 47) newsletter.
    b.  Indicate in the newsletter which Captain/alliance you will join.
    c.  Announcements made on the D2 Forums or elsewhere will not be accepted.

Captains are responsible for:
    a.  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.)
    b.  Distribution of prizes should their alliance win the Turf War.
    c.  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:
    a.  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.)
    b.  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.
        1.  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.
        2.  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.
        3.  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).
        4.  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.
        5.  No declarations or verifications will be accepted after Turn 3 of the Turf 
            War.

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, no points awarded)

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 warriors = 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
            (If tied, 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 warriors = 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
    e.  (If tied, no points awarded.)
   
Champions:
    a.  A Champion may be declared, but one is not mandatory. It is to the 
        team's/alliance's advantage that you do so.
    b.  Only one Champion allowed per manager at any given time.
    c.  Champions that graduate or are killed by another warrior or the Dark Arena, 
        may be replaced.
    d.  Champions must have fought at least one previous fight in the North Fork (DM47 
        arena) to be able to be declared a champion. 
    e.  A Champion can be declared on any round and point factors will begin that same 
        turn. (Must meet above 4 conditions prior to declaring.)
    f.  Challenges to or by Champions against members of the same alliance shall be 
        scored as a loss for each warrior.

     No warrior may be substituted without the proper use of the DA or arena death or 
death in a tournament or graduation. A maximum of five warriors may be on a team at 
any time. (The penalty for such substitution is -10 points.) 

     It is not in the spirit of competition to challenge fellow members of the same 
alliance. Hence, challenges as such will be scored as losses for both warriors.

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

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

Special Considerations:
    a.  Each alliance begins the Turf War with zero (0) points.
    b.  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.
    c.  There will be a maximum of four (4) teams/managers allowed per alliance for 
        the Turf War VII. The minimum is two (2).
    d.  The Dark Arena may be used at any time without penalty.
    e.  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:
        a.  Renaming of the North Fork (DM 47) arena;
        b.  Renaming of all Dark Arena Monsters 
        c.  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).
        d.  +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.
        e.  +1 Skill bonus potion (one) for each and every individual manager who
