                                      SPY REPORT

     Hello, my pretties!  It is I, Sidara Brightbell, here to bring you all the news 
that is worthy of noting for Seam!  I have gotten a new familiar this week, so I have 
spent much of the time outside of the press box training the pooch.  Yes, yes, it is a 
dog instead of the normal, boring black cat or raven.  I find dogs have more of a 
protective streak in them and won't bolt at the first sign of danger.  Oh well, I'll 
get back to doggy training later, let's take a look at this cycle's action. 
     Prof. Monkeypants is OUT in more ways than one.  Our former Duelmaster got his 
invitation to the Isle of the Eye, so his final fight was this turn.  He fought Able 
Baker Charlie of Huckle's Cats in a match that was surrounded with much fanfare.  
These final arena fights for newly minted Lord Protectors are always joyous occasions 
flowing with ale and confetti.  In an outcome no one saw coming, Able Baker Charlie 
executed Prof. Monkeypants.  This would have put a damper on the festivities except 
Prof. Monkeypants was seen by the healers and brought back to the land of the living.  
And, most importantly perhaps, the ale had been flowing for hours so most were unaware 
of what actually happened on the sands.  Congrats to our newest Duelmaster Able Baker 
Charlie, who is managed by Huckle Cat. 
     The most avoided team was Darque Knights and they were most avoided by I'm Not 
Eggbert.  Darque Knights went 1-4 this turn, so I'm not sure what those other guys 
were avoiding.  The most challenged warrior this turn was NOT the Duelmaster, but Ben 
Nevis of Thirsty Thugs.  Ben had a 7-3-1 record coming into the turn, so he isn't a 
slouch.  Frahndahdahdiah of Ah Tongues of Fire was the lucky, err unlucky, challenger 
that got to fight Ben.  This fight was actually a bloodfeud.  It did not go well for 
the avenging team as Ben won in a 3 minute bout. 
     The top team remains I'm Not Eggbert.  Huckle's Cats are holding steady at the 2 
spot.  Devil Dinosaurs move up to 3rd, and Losers move up an astounding 7 places to 
take over 4th.  They, of course, had the turn's largest gain.  Lost Sentinels round 
out the top 5.  The biggest loss of the turn goes to Darque Knights, who fell 3 places 
after an abysmal 1-4 effort.  Huckle's Cats could perhaps pose a threat to the top 
spot if they ran all 5 warriors each turn.  As it stands now, Devil Dinosaurs pose the 
biggest threat to I'm Not Eggbert for the top team spot next turn. 
     There were no Dark Arena deaths this turn, but 4 deaths in the arena.  Well, I 
guess we can say 3.5 deaths since one of them was Lord Protector Prof. Monkeypants, 
who was promptly brought back to life by the Isle healers.  In a contest of who has 
the longest, most difficult name, Rhondohlavishah was killed by Nyarlathotep.  
Asmodesaurus of Devil Dinosaurs challenged Barnabas Crow, but was unable to finish the 
match after Barnabas executed him.  Finally, we have Wicked of Lost Sentinels dying in 
a random match up with Panic of Losers.  Condolences to the dead and good luck next 
turn if you decide to bloodfeud. 
     It is time for me to go, my sweets.  I hear the doggy whimpering.  I need to take 
him for a walk, and perhaps let him make a deposit by the I'm Not Eggbert guildhouse.  
Good luck to everyone next turn.  Able Baker Charlie did not get his invite to the 
Isle, so he will have the opportunity to defend the title and retain the throne.  I 
hope to see you all next turn!

                          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!

                        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!
