STEELE RISING had cause to celebrate, after NAKA got 26 points by beating IT'S NACHO CHEESE. Win some, lose some. Speaking of which, NAKA was winsome, after beating IT'S NACHO CHEESE and seeing him lose 22 points. Those who hoped for a new Duelmaster were disappointed by VIRGINAL CONCUBINE, of AMEN-TEI, who despite a 0-0-0 couldn't overcome AMEN-TEI's Number 1. So who's the team that's been walking into taverns last week and ordering milk? Sounds like a PR stunt to me. So much to report, so little time! Like the noble eagle soaring amongst the mountaintops, so stand the warriors of EXCLAMATION!, alone and unchallenged. Like a pup with its tail between its legs, BAD ATTIFOOD scurried away from EXCLAMATION!. Oh, the shame! Is it charming personality? Conversational abilities? Good oral hygiene? Whatever it is, PICKLES AND ONIONS is the most challenged warrior. Like the wind whispering among the pines, do hearest I many disquieting rumors. I hear GOLIATH of STEELE RISING tired of the battles and was thinking of becoming a priest. JOHN BOSCO of SATAN'S SAINTS saved him the effort of getting references. Questions are being raised about the disposing of severed body parts in the arena. A certain tavern in AMEN-TEI would I avoid! All good things must come to an end. More important duties call me. Can anything compare to the pleasure of writing Spyreports for AMEN-TEI?

Anyone may participate; known alliances, new alliances, thrown-together alliances, or temporary alliances created solely to compete in the Turf War! To participate, each alliance or participant must: 1. Announce an Alliance Name, Captain, and Assistant of the alliance in the North Fork (DM 47) newsletter or on the RSI site. 2. Determine and submit either 1 or 2 or 3 certificates per participant. Amounts can be different per alliance participant. (See Scoring section for more details.) 3. Each participating team must run in DM47 on one of the three turns prior to the start of TW12 so that the team shows in the last newsletter prior to the 1st TW12 turn. At the end of the game, Captains are responsible for distributing any winning certificates to the team participants. No alliance scores can be tabulated until the chosen amount of RSI Gift Certificates are received, the teams are listed in the newsletter, and participant indication and captain confirmation are posted in the North Fork newsletter. All entry certs should be sent to Oz or The Consortium via RSI. Only one (1) team per player/manager may compete in the Turf Wars, and only one team per player/manager may compete in North Fork DM47 during the Turf War. 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). NOTE: Since alliances require two teams, this would mean the remaining alliance member cannot score in the TW. Any Turf War team must show/be posted/listed in the DM47 Newsletter just prior to their actual scoring/participation. (E.g. New teams, transfers, current teams must show up in the newsletter prior to the beginning of participation, allowing opponent knowledge and challenging/avoiding.) Manager/teams may not participate/score in the Turf War the same turn they are first posted in the newsletter. (So get your team in the newsletter early.) Teams do not have to run that turn prior to TW12-T1, but will have had to run shortly before to allow their warriors to be visible in the newsletter just prior to TW12-T1. 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, confirmation, NL listing, and Gift Certificate received. No declarations or confirmations will be accepted after Turn 2 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.) 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 -25 points.) SCORING will be as follows: Only three things affect scoring. Number of initial certs submitted, wins, fighting all five warriors, and the round modifier. (Later rounds have higher modifiers.) NUMBER OF CERTS SUBMITTED 1. Alliances will start the competition with the amount of points based on the amount of certs submitted. Two certs (1 each, the minimum required) = 0 points. Three certs total = 3 points for the alliance Four certs total = 6 points for the alliance Five certs total = 10 for the alliance Six certs (the max) total = 15 for the alliances 2. After the sixth and after the eleventh round those same amount of turn starting points are awarded to each alliance. 3. Hence, alliances may earn up to 45 points through the event via certs. (Note: cert points are not impacted by the Round Modifier.) NUMBER OF WINS 1. Each teammate win per round is worth 3 base points. (e.g. 1 win = 3 points, 5 wins = 15 points) FIGHT ALL FIVE WARRIORS 1. Each turn there is a +3 base point bonus for each teammate fighting all five warriors 2. Each turn there is a -3 base point penalty for each teammate not fighting all five warriors. ROUND MODIFIER 1. The first 6 rounds of TW12 are scored at 1x base points. (Base points includes win scoring, and any all-5 bonus/penalty, but not any cert scoring) 2. The 7th through 11th rounds are scored at 2x base points. 3. For the final and 12th round, base point scoring is at x3. Special Considerations: 1. There will be NO alliance or team changes once the contest has begun. If you begin the Turf War with Alliance X, you must end the Turf War with Alliance X. If you begin the Turf War with Team X, you must end the Turf War with Team X. 2. Each alliance is comprised of two and only two managers. 3. The Dark Arena may be used without penalty. (Limit twice per warrior.) 4, 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 Certs: The winning alliance gets 70% of the pooled certs. Second place alliance gets 20%, and third place gets 10%. It is the responsibility of the Captain of the winning alliance to distribute Gift Certificates to his alliance. Moderators will mail them shortly after the final round. Moderators will submit a list of each manager winner to RSI at the completion of the contest for the RSI awarded prizes, to then be claimed by the manager from RSI Customer Service within 6 months. RSI awards: (all must be applied to DM47 warriors, cannot create out-of-bounds warrior, and one max prize applied to any warrior ? all within 6 months)(one max prize means that if you win two prizes they cannot be applied to the same warrior.) 1. Winning alliance captain may choose three (each manager/team receives same prize as chosen by captain): * Limited Damage Bump (bump one level damage) (warrior must have fought in the TW) * Stat replace (remove 2 SZ, replace 2 to any one other stat) (warrior must have fought in the TW) * Choice Replacement (Receive 5 replacements, choose 1, delete 4) * Replacement stat swap (Replace/flip any 2 stats on one new replacement)(may not use in combination with Choice Replacement.) * Favorite weapon knowledge (warrior must have fought in the TW) 2. 2nd place alliance captain may choose two (each manager/team receives same prize as chosen by captain) * Favorite weapon knowledge (warrior must have fought in the TW) * Favorite rhythm knowledge (warrior must have participated in TW) * Free stat raise of choice except size (may not create out-of-bounds warrior) 3. 3rd place alliance captain may choose one (each manager/team receives same prize as chosen by captain) * Favorite weapon knowledge (warrior must have fought in the TW) * Favorite rhythm knowledge (warrior must have participated in TW) * Free stat raise of choice except size (may not create out-of-bounds warrior) Participation Award: All teams who fight in all rounds and 54 min fights (of 60) * Two +1 skill pots (added to warrior base; cannot create out of bound warrior) These RSI awards will be listed by the Moderators within two weeks of round twelve for individual claiming from RSI within 4 turns of the end of TWXII. 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, Master Darque, and Assur. (The TWX Triumvirate) 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 or Bash Bros Park via diplo in DM 47. Managers with internet access may send a private message to [The Consortium] or [Darque] or [Assur] on the Duel2 Forums.
