I thought Defensive Lee was British. I took care of her, eh? I am now Duelmaster. It just goes to show what a little "political protest" can do for a fine fellow like me. Yes sir! To my forerunners: The Boston Tea Party (initially referred to by John Adams as "the Destruction of the Tea in Boston") was a political protest by the Sons of Liberty in Boston, on December 16, 1773. The Sons of Liberty, some disguised as Native Americans, in defiance of the Tea Act of May 10, 1773, destroyed an entire shipment of tea sent by the East India Company, which had 342 chests of tea on board. To the rest of you: Phblttt! -- Boston Tea Party, DMI SPY REPORT Greetings warriors! It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the clash and bustle of the weekly ARKERS games. There were bitter words at Z GLADIATORZ's guildhouse after a 2-1-0 showing this week which dropped the stable into 6th. Dark Arena anyone? MALLAFAX caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested PARIS TROUT and was awarded 19 points in recognition. In one of the week's more notable duels, MALLAFAX put down PARIS TROUT, causing him to lose 8 points of recognition in the process. Who here was not present for the title fight this week as LUCIFEROUS HOPE boldly challenged BOSTON TEA PARTY in order to strive for the Duelmasters honors? The city has turned out in honor of LUCIFEROUS HOPE, for with hers arena victory she may now lay claim to the highest position in the city! Heed this! A seer has warned that if exactly 6 die in duels this week, the whole city shall perish! Just remember...5 or 7! I have been in deep conclave with my spies who watched all that has recently transpired. Indeed there is much I would report. ARKERS, city of gladiators! Mighty among the names of thy guilds is SERIOUS LEE, a guild shunned and avoided by many in the weekly duels. If you didn't look down dark alleys you'd have been hard pressed to find any of SMITHSONIAN last week. Busy avoiding SERIOUS LEE? Mighty fighters cannot but expect competition from those below. THE GYPSY take warning! You have more than a few enemies in ARKERS. I cannot but express pride for the fearlessness of CURLY BILL who cast caution to the winds and challenged THE GYPSY, a fighter 29 points higher. To be sure the battle was a losing one. But I like to think CURLY BILL at least gave THE GYPSY a run for his money. I can not but mention with disdain the name of ETON THE STALWART who this week posted a challenge to a warrior a full 13 points below in the rankings. I thought ETON THE STALWART showed great skill and promise when he beat CRUEL LEE. All right, so I slept through it! Big deal! What warrior does not hone his years, impatiently waiting for the moment of his foe's mortality? Fate is a fickle mistress. She showers the miserable with fortune but sets enemies against the victorious. Remember this! The girls are as pretty in ARKERS as ever I remembered them....and the fighters as ugly! Don't let your reputation slip! Ahh, but I can hear the spires of a far off city calling to me. I must away! Till we meet again, remember: a turtle walks slow, hides head in a shell, and harms no one; a lion runs to slay its prey.-- Zontani Sharp Eyes DUELMASTER W L K POINTS TEAM NAME LUCIFEROUS HOPE 5522 19 17 1 129 BROKEN SPIRITS (632) CHALLENGER CHAMPIONS W L K POINTS TEAM NAME ZEST 5224 38 10 1 137 Z GLADIATORZ (519) PLYMOUTH ROCK 5218 36 11 0 119 SMITHSONIAN (245) CHALLENGER CHAMPIONS W L K POINTS TEAM NAME SITTING BULL 5638 16 6 0 109 SMITHSONIAN (245) GROUND SHEET 3725 15 11 2 103 BOOK OF THOMAS (411) DEFENSIVE LEE 4062 23 8 0 100 SERIOUS LEE (486) -MAYFLOWER 5235 27 16 0 97 SMITHSONIAN (245) TEXAS RED 5504 10 6 2 96 THE OUTLAWS 2 (631) THE GYPSY 5587 14 14 3 95 HOYT FOUNDATION (636) -ZIRCONIUM 5493 20 5 0 93 Z GLADIATORZ (519) ETON THE STALWART 5496 23 13 0 92 THE CHOSEN (613) BOSTON TEA PARTY 5706 13 4 1 91 SMITHSONIAN (245) CHAMPIONS W L K POINTS TEAM NAME MALLAFAX 5508 8 14 0 85 BROKEN SPIRITS (632) GUTSAG BAKWORT 5500 20 15 0 81 BLOODY HAND CLAN (626) HALIN STORMBREAKER 5498 12 18 1 81 THE CHOSEN (613) CRUEL LEE 5676 9 6 2 79 SERIOUS LEE (486) PARIS TROUT 5591 17 16 0 71 HOYT FOUNDATION (636) HUMBLE LEE 4061 12 17 0 70 SERIOUS LEE (486) -DELAYED 5640 11 6 1 70 BB PUBLIC TRANSIT (604) -CORRECT CHANGE 5720 7 3 0 68 BB PUBLIC TRANSIT (604) -STANDING ROOM ONLY 5282 12 9 0 67 BB PUBLIC TRANSIT (604) CHALLENGER ADEPTS W L K POINTS TEAM NAME JHERI BLOOMERS 5643 11 13 2 60 HOYT FOUNDATION (636) MAQURO DOOMAXE 5634 11 15 0 59 BLOODY HAND CLAN (626) CURLY BILL 5501 8 8 0 58 THE OUTLAWS 2 (631) -BREAK DOWN 5618 9 7 0 57 BB PUBLIC TRANSIT (604) ADEPTS W L K POINTS TEAM NAME THE DEALER 5685 9 8 1 51 HOYT FOUNDATION (636) HELGA LOARWEN 5632 12 11 1 48 THE CHOSEN (613) MAUD STONEGUT 5721 9 6 2 48 BLOODY HAND CLAN (626) UGARG SNOTSNIK 5815 6 0 0 47 BLOODY HAND CLAN (626) EGRIM 5510 9 16 1 44 BROKEN SPIRITS (632) EIGER THE HARDY 5811 6 1 0 44 THE CHOSEN (613) RAL STORMBREAKER 5786 4 6 0 42 THE CHOSEN (613) 'ACKY GIT 5814 5 1 1 40 BLOODY HAND CLAN (626) CHALLENGER INITIATES W L K POINTS TEAM NAME -ZULU 5817 2 1 0 29 Z GLADIATORZ (519) -WORKER STRIKE 5751 3 0 0 27 BB PUBLIC TRANSIT (604) INITIATES W L K POINTS TEAM NAME -MASON-DIXON 5722 5 8 0 23 SMITHSONIAN (245) SCRAP METAL 5758 2 1 0 23 BOOK OF THOMAS (411) -MYSTERIOUS LEE 5729 4 0 0 22 SERIOUS LEE (486) NIOBE 5818 1 3 0 22 BROKEN SPIRITS (632) PIP SQUEAK 5789 1 0 0 15 BOOK OF THOMAS (411) ARKANSAS DAVE 5832 1 0 0 12 THE OUTLAWS 2 (631) ZOMBIE 5823 1 0 0 10 Z GLADIATORZ (519) DOC SCURLOK 5816 1 3 0 6 THE OUTLAWS 2 (631) ZEPHYR 5824 1 1 0 4 Z GLADIATORZ (519) GORMAX 5825 0 2 0 2 BROKEN SPIRITS (632) HODGE PODGE 5790 0 1 0 1 BOOK OF THOMAS (411) '-' denotes a warrior who did not fight this turn.

I'm getting that back! -- The Anxious Man Ze Zee's ve zuper! 3-0! Zippety-zoo-zah! -- The Z Man The ugly, clattering noise ruined the serious funeral service for Zany. It was terrible! Someone should be shot! -- Zhelda, Z Gladiatorz Assistant Gormax, I had to chuckle at the futility of your effort. -- Zhephyr Paris Trout, your staying power was a male in heat. Har har. -- Zest Doc Scurlok, is that all you've got? -- Zulu Ve Vish yu'z all a zhort Mailer. Ve do. -- Mr. Zee Congrats to our own Boston Tea party for upending Defensive Lee from the throne. Duelmaster! Hubba hubba! -- Curator What a novel and caring rendition of Amazing Grace that was for the burial services for Zany, a member of the not-very-loved Z Gladiatorz. Truly nice. -- Curator Defensive Lee, it was a very, very fine and difficult fight. Seriously. -- Boston Tea Party Anxious Man, I shall plug those holes in my hull you made and soon be back to normal. I salute you as my better. -- Mayflower Health. Humility. Honor. Good luck to all in The Mailer. -- Curator and The Smithsonians Fratsfa Mercenary -- I really hope no one paid you for that fight. If they did, I hope they did not pay you a lot. -- Eiger the Hardy Khalhums Dwarf -- We have a couple of Khalhums dwarves in our stable. They fight much better than you. Perhaps you should ask them for tips. -- Eton Niobe -- Not only am I a Stormbreaker, but it seems that I am a spirit breaker as well. -- Ral Stormbreaker -- We raise our cups to Boston Tea Party; Duelmaster of Arkers. Do whatever you want with the other teas, but leave the Earl Grey alone! -- the Chosen Curly Bill -- Well, one must seay, that was not expected. You, one's old bean, aaare quit spiffing with ah blade. Absolutely top hole, I have to say. But you and one buhth knoh one had you. Ah rematch would simply result in you, one's old bean, paying the ultimate price! The same price that Luciferous should be paying! -- Maquro Doomaxe Belle Star -- Heh... Yoos iz weak an yoos iz furry. Shave already! Yoos haz more hair on yer face than Gutsy haz on his back... Heh... an on his belly...heh... and on his butt... heh... an in his arm pitz ... Come ta tink of it, he has hair everywhere except his head.... Heh... Blue Wack-a-doooo! Heh... Dat wuz cool. -- 'Acky Git Cult Member -- Yoos came back and yoos was smart enough not ta bring a whistle dis time. I still broke yer leg anyway. But look on da bright side. At least I didn't kill ya again. Hur hur hur. -- Maud Luciferous Hope -- One is still angry about what happened last turn. One did everything roysh and lost one's chance to mustah revenge. Noh one's poohr cousin is lying cold in the eaaarth and you are prancing aaaround sucking in perfectly spiffing aair. Preay to your god that one does not mustah ah rematch. You are destined for the morgue, don't you know? -- Maquro Doomaxe Humble Lee -- Now yoos, yoos is a good fighter. Yoos can trow a punch and make it hurt. A lil' bit anywayz. Feel free ta give me more easy winz. Hur hur hur -- Gutsag Bakwort Captured Orc -- It painz me ta have ta smash a fellow orc. Can't we jus' stop dis orc on orc violence? Can't we jus come ta getder and smash da elves instead? Jus' kiddin' I loved smacking you repeatedly in the knee. Da crunching sound iz da best part! -- Ugarg Snotsnik Zhelda -- For a glorified office tramp you talk pretty tough. If this so called "man" Z Man had a set he would come and talk to me, but he does not, so he hides behind your skirt, massive that it is. And, if I were you guys, I don't know that I would irritate Jheri Bloomers. That guy is nuts. He has thin skin, is unbalanced, actually still does live with his mom, in the basement I might add, and becomes combative when offended. I'm pretty sure I would not want to be on his bad side. So, if you want more warriors killed, I would keep smart-mouthing him and then be prepared for the consequences. I mean, let's be real, what are you going to do? Bleed all over him some more? -- Den, High Priest of the mighty Allied Axis and manager of the Hoyt Foundation LAST WEEK'S FIGHTS ICKY BOB was butchered by BLACK ORC in a 1 minute Dark Arena fight.

The following warriors will travel to AD after next turn: LUCIFEROUS HOPE (8-5522) BROKEN SPIRITS (632) ZEST (8-5224) Z GLADIATORZ (519) BLOODGAMES AND MORE BLOODGAMES! The Mail-in Bloodgames that were set to run at Face-to-Face 58 in January did not process because we had trouble with the warrior data for that arena. Unfortunately, the warrior data was irretrievably lost. We have credited everyone for those teams. So here's what we're going to do: We will hold a replacement Mail-in Bloodgames (DM 97) on June 17. To participate, submit your team (10 warriors, design-your-own, one of each style). When we receive your team "rollup", we will send you back warrior overviews. Your strategies for the Replacement Mail-in Bloodgames (DM 97) are due June 17. We will process all ten rounds, one after another, and mail all results later that week. The costs and Bloodgames rules will remain the same. In addition to this, we will also hold another Bloodgames (DM 95), but this one will process as a slow arena. Design your teams in the same way: 10 warriors, design- your-own, one warrior of each fighting style. Managers may submit turn input each round for their warriors, similar to the Face-to-Face style Bloodgames (no challenges, only Bloodfeuds). Your strategies for the first round of the Arena Bloodgames (DM 95) are due on June 24. This arena will run ten rounds, once every four weeks. The Summer Face-to-Face is coming up and we will hold the regularly scheduled Face-to- Face style and Mail-in style Bloodgames there, as well. We hope everyone will enjoy one or more of these Bloodgames arenas! -- RSI BLOODGAMES at the SUMMER FACE-TO-FACE Back by popular demand, we will be having Bloodgames at the Summer FTF! For those of you who always wanted the chance to manage the last warrior standing alive upon the arena sands, your day has come. At the end of the ten turns, even though several warriors, bruised and scarred, MAY yet live, only one will be crowned Champion of the Bloodgames. And in this game mere survival counts for little. A great general once said, "The object of battle is not to die for your cause, but to make your enemy die for his." This general would have greatly enjoyed the Duelmasters Bloodgames. There will be two different arenas: FTF-Style (DM 98): for Face-to-Face attendees, with turn-by-turn strategies Mail-in-Style (DM 99): for all managers, with one strategy for all ten rounds Gameplay proceeds according to standard DM rules, except for a few notable exceptions: BLOODGAMES ROLLUP -- Your Bloodgames team is ten warriors, one of each fighting style, each warrior designed from scratch! (All are 84 points, 3-21, as usual.) DEATH -- As the name implies, the Bloodgames will leave the arena sands somewhat darker before they're over. It's a dangerous sport intended only for the tough and spirited. The Arenamaster will be less likely to intercede on behalf of a dying warrior. Even at a 1 kill desire, kill attempts will occur. REPLACEMENTS AND ROLLUPS -- There will be no replacement characters. CHALLENGES AND STRATEGIES -- In the FTF-style bloodgames, there are no regular challenges, only bloodfeuds. For the Mail-in arena, warriors may not change their strategy from round to round (to make it fair for those who could not attend the FTF). There will be no DA challenges in either arena. TURN PROCESSING AND DUE DATES -- If you are not attending the FTF, we must have your rollups and strategies by the Wednesday before the FTF, else they are due by 9pm on Friday, at the hotel. The Bloodgames will process at the FTF with the regular tournament. MISSED TURNS -- All warriors fight each round. Only the dead may rest. ERRORS -- If we make an input error, that warrior will be awarded a win and kill. Errors must be reported before the next turn processes. NEWSLETTER -- Warriors are ranked according to their number of kills. Champions of Bloodgames may write a column for the newsletter at the end of the games. FEES -- A Bloodgames rollup costs a $10 set-up fee. Managers may roll up more than one team but may run only one team in each arena. The fee for all ten rounds is $49. AWARDS -- The Bloodgames last ten rounds. Only warriors who survive to the end of Turn 10 will be eligible for an award. However, a consolation award of a Bloodgames T-shirt will be awarded to the dead warrior with the most kills. The living warrior with the greatest number of kills will be the Bloodgames Champion. Bloodgames Victor titles, 2nd and 3rd place, and Bloodgames Runner-up titles, 4th through 6th place, will be awarded to those living warriors with the greatest number of kills at the end of Turn 10, with one other important consideration: Each of these six warriors must be of a different fighting style. Win/loss records and, if necessary, recognition points will only be used to determine awards if there is a tie. A Bloodgames T-shirts will be awarded to the manager of the team with the most kills. The Bloodgames Champion fights for free in Advanced Duelmasters, and all Champions and Victors earn Tournament Victor status, which allows them to challenge once per turn with increased priority. These awards last for six months. The manager of the Bloodgames Champion, Victors, and Runners-up will receive Bloodgames T-shirts. AFTERMATH -- Warriors from the Bloodgames may not transfer to any other arena. Once the games are over, the arena and teams will be disbanded. The fighters have won their freedom and will never more be seen in the gladiatorial games. A special bonus will, however, be awarded to the 1st through 3rd place warriors. Lady Sheila Greywand, of the Isle of the Eye, has consented to allow the top three gladiators in each Bloodgames admission to the Advanced Duelmasters games. Any special training required to qualify those three warriors for Advanced Duelmasters combat will be conducted before transfer into ADM. Astute managers will note that this means that three warriors that are designed from scratch will survive the Bloodgames, win one of the top three places, and go on to immortal glory! One of those warriors could be yours! The challenge is yours to take. The final plans are yours to make. When the dust settles, remember: To the victor goes the spoils!
