                             Notes from the arena champ.

Hello to all my fellow Freedom Fries Land citizens! I'm not one for words so I'll keep 
this short. I want to thank Ten Trick's Ex for a well fought battle. I apologize for 
the down challenge but there was no where to challenge but down. I really want to keep 
the throne and get my invite soon so I'll be looking for favorable match ups for me 
when I make my challenges. That means you may very well get another challenge from me 
again. Until next week...

                                          -- Lil Johnny

                                      SPY REPORT

     So why do I have this bag over my head?  Because I am The Unknown Spymaster and 
I'm going to give you a spy report!.  Say good-bye to ROYAL FLUSH, as they are pushed 
from the coveted top team spot by the LAND OF OZ stable.  For every winner there is a 
loser.  Speaking of losers, lets take a look at BIG LAKE GROOVE, who went down to 4th 
from 8th.  Life is tough.  Coming up with a solid 3-1-0 outing, TEAM TOONS has 
advanced 8 places in the rankings.  Hey everybody, watch out for EGG NOGGIN, who flew 
up 28 points in the rankings after mashing HANZO like a melon.  Keep your eye on this 
guy.  Ya know, some days it doesn't pay to walk out on the sands.  MEGABOLOX lost to 
GAUTREK and drops 15 points.  Unlike most arenas, LIL JOHNNY managed to get his 
challenge off against the 17-11-0 TEN TRICK'S EX.  Going for the gusto and coming up 
with aught but bloody knuckles was ROYAL FLUSH's TEN TRICK'S EX, who was turned away 
from the Duelmastership by LIL JOHNNY.  4 out of 5 gladiators surveyed protect the 
body, so try and avoid aiming at that location.   
     Let's dig a little deeper into what's happening in the FREEDOM FRIES LAND arena. 
And hey, kiddies, those of you who didn't avoid SERPENTS HOLD 200, please raise you 
hand.  Wow.  Does FREEDOM FRIES LAND really have that many liars?  For those of you 
who like math, try this one:  SERPENTS HOLD 200 + Weapons That go Boom = ROYAL FLUSH 
+ Avoid City.  And who is this EGG NOGGIN you ask, with 135 points and a 13-6-2 
record.  Ooh, the tales I could tell!  Well, it looks like LION wasn't happy with 
last turn's rank, so he went for broke by challenging up 28 points.  No guts, no 
glory.  I don't know about you, but when I saw LION step out on the sands with BUGS, 
I though it was over before it started.  Good upset LION!  In a mismatch, our friend 
QUICK SAND of BIG LAKE GROOVE got heroic notions and challenged ALEC BALDWIN.  What 
did it get him?  A 2-1-0 record, that's what.  Some advice to QUICK SAND.  Please 
don't challenge up 27 points to fight a 12-10-1 fighter like, say ALEC BALDWIN.  
(Okay, so it may be a little late).  CRYSTAL BALL of LAND OF OZ had better have a 
good reason for challenging down 8 points in a challenge which she won.  I thought 
CRYSTAL BALL showed great skill and promise when she beat FOX.  All right, so I slept 
through it!  Big deal!   
     Death is kind of like a new puppy:  he's always around wanting to play.  (Ha 
Zontani, how's that for a wise saying?).  For those of you who missed it, Death 
showed up, grabbed HANZO by the ear and took him away to a place where he won't need 
a coat.  Here's some advice:  warriors with little wit and will may encounter 
problems on the trail to the Isle.   
     Well, there's the manager of the FREEDOM FRIES LAND giving me the 'cut' sign (or 
is that 'They're going to strangle you in the alley?).  C'mon, Leadfoot, let's make 
some tracks.  And remember, you can pick your friends and you can pick your--(loud 
boos), oh, you've heard that one already!-- The Unknown Spymaster

Thomas Roberts, take that! Hah! (Big lion roar.) And, I will never, never, never watch 
you; I like something "Fair And Balanced". You know, the good and true and 
knowledgeable people. -- Lion

Congratulations to Lil Johnny, a big, big Duelmaster. -- Oz The All Jealous

Lion, please try to be nice to Thomas Roberts, after all, he has to work somewhere, 
even if it is for a Podunk-leaning group. Give him a break; it must be hard working 
for them. OK? -- Ox The All-Appealing

Drone A4, did someone forget to program you? Bwahaha. -- Golden Cap

Queen of the South -- What a great fight!  Thanks for the challenge. -- Hanzo

Yet another question!  I have the Consortium paperwork on stats, skills, etc...  It 
says that PS's are at heavy negatives (-45).  Does this mean the PS's can't be 
competitive in the upper levels of the game because when maxxed out they have far 
fewer skills than others?

OMG, another question!  OZ, you put "Good" skills in quotation marks.  What are "Bad" 
skills?

My limit is three questions, I swear:  Decisiveness, is it only good for determining 
who strikes first?  Is there any use for a defensive fighter to have a high decise?

Oz -- Thanks for answering my previous questions, though they were open to anyone. --

Pinhead -- You are mis-named. I found you to be an excellent teacher! -- Don Quixote

Drone A1 -- Dangit! -- One Time!

                        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!

               NEW GRADUATES--FROM ALL ARENAS (INCLUDING CLOSED ARENAS)

For those of you who keep track of such things, several additional warriors
