                                      SPY REPORT

     You elder fighters surely remember me.  The younger ones may call me Olaf 
Modeen.  I return to KYR'TERR once again!  Bein' on top is great while it lasts, FEAR 
FACTORY 12.  But how many friends do you have now?  FEAR FACTORY 12 bit the big one 
as they could not win.  They dropped from 1st down to 12th!  Are you guy giving 
lessons or what?  What's with RECKLESS LIFE?  He actually beat WARCKERS' PEPPER, and 
walked away with 32 more points from the fight.  Major screwup at HOME LIFE.  LIGHT'S 
OUT lost 16 points to PERISTYLIUM.  Some new strategies, perhaps?  Maybe LIGHT'S OUT 
will provide more easy wins...  Try as he might, BAR-B-DOO wasn't good enough at 
persuading KHARONA to step down from the Duelmaster's throne...  Wouldn't it be nice 
to have live subjects to practice on?  I hear some team is looking into the uses of 
convicted prisoners.   
     No matter the time or place, men will always duel.  The most avoided team was 
FEAR FACTORY 15.  Management must be dealin', as the boys at D IS FOR DOG ain't 
reelin'!  FEAR FACTORY 15's mad!   
     A fighter's lot is filled with strife, revenge, and killing.  Some fighters 
don't accept this.  The best do.  Sending a warrior to the Dark Arena reminds the 
others they'd better shape up.  Tough beans, SHIVER.  That's what a 11-4-0 gets you.  
Some people in KYR'TERR think 100% CANADIAN was too harsh when they sent SHIVER 
(11-4-0) to the Dark Arena.  Them's the breaks, I say.  Hmm...  More surprises must 
remain in store for me, if ANGRY BIRDS can return from the Dark Arena.  RECKLESS LIFE 
proved too determined for PEPPER.  PEPPER was lucky to go in the ring, with 8-2-2 to 
his credit.  He will be remembered.  RECKLESS LIFE of FEAR FACTORY 3 has spared 
PEPPER from the boredom of a warrior's retirement...  But I doubt WARCKERS is 
grateful.  Is it my imagination, or are fighters getting younger every day?  To die 
so young, so gloriously!   
     Well, I'm pretty much through.  You guys need to get back practicing.  The end 
of another Spyreport!  That's cause for celebration in my book!  Remember--a good 
fighter needs both good skills and good luck.  Until next time,-- Olaf Modeen

                          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!
