                             REPORT FROM WITHIN THE TOWER

Greetings!           

We had seven fights again, three against NPCs.  There were no challenges or avoids. 

Azaghal and his team didn't fight this round, so he sadly lost the Champion's seat.  
THE UPRIGHT MAN (10-5185) (48-64-1,211) of ALASTARIAN IDOL fought 1977 AMC MATADOR 
(42-4116) (88-76-0,190) of COLOR ME SUAVE.  THE UPRIGHT MAN devastated 1977 AMC 
MATADOR in a 2 minute mismatched Title fight.  The Upright Man is our new Champion of 
the Horn!  Congratulations!  May you be worthy of the honor, sir.  

The Upright Man is also our top basher.  

Here are the rest of the fights:
VIRGINIA, NO SANTA (65-6623) (57-78-1,217) of GOT IT FOR CHRISTMAS fought ALMOST 
PRETTY (42-4496) (104-59-0,202) of COLOR ME SUAVE.  VIRGINIA, NO SANTA was demolished 
by ALMOST PRETTY in a 1 minute one-sided melee.  Almost Pretty is our top Wall of 
Steel.

PINCH BLISTER (18-9859) (55-93-0,164) of CENTER FOR OLDS fought TELGOR.  PINCH BLISTER 
was devastated by TELGOR in a popular 2 minute brutal one-sided contest.

JELLO KNUCKLES (42-4554) (65-71-0,174) of COLOR ME SUAVE fought CRYSALIS GUARD.  JELLO 
KNUCKLES was bested by CRYSALIS GUARD in a action packed 3 minute brawl.  Despite his 
loss, Jello Knuckles is our top Total Parry.  

DIRTY DIAPERS (38-5071) (22-20-1,50) of BASH BROS CHILDREN fought INIGO MONTOYA (33-
8054) (14-7-1,50) of BIG LAKE BANDITS.  DIRTY DIAPERS was savagely defeated by INIGO 
MONTOYA in a 2 minute brutal struggle.  Inigo Montoya is our top Slasher. 

BURM WOLFSNARL (81-113) (17-9-0,50) of BIG LAKE OUTCASTS fought FLAT (72-6880) (25-5-
1,81) of BASH BROS TIRES.  BURM WOLFSNARL was butchered by FLAT in a 1 minute one-
sided competition.  Flat moved up 19 points in the rankings for his kill.   

WONTON NOT NOW (73-6069) (33-22-1,80) of PALINDROMES fought CAPTURED PIRATE KING.  
WONTON NOT NOW handily defeated CAPTURED PIRATE KING in a 1 minute uneven melee.

Aimed Blows and Slashers, all one of them each, were undefeated this round.  Nice!  
But all of the Total Parrys lost, and at least one to an NPC as we saw above.  We have 
the most Bashers and then Total Parrys.  Can any other arena say it has more Bashers 
fighting than any other style? 

Suave has a nice hold on the Top Team spot, with his 56.6% record, but went 1-3 this 
round.  Assur's moving up with a nice 3-2.  Interestingly, the NPCs went 2-1.  A new 
manager enters the ranks with a respectable 1-1 this turn, although sadly, the -1 was 
a death.  Welcome to Storm Rock, Den.  Nomad and Crip didn't fight this round.

May the sands bring you luck.  Until next time, I remain

   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.

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.
