                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
OSKSI brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Gee, I'm impressed, a 3-0-0 is nice, 
but don't get cocky, PASTA, the Fates teach humility, and the Fates are proud.  Of 
course, we're all terribly impressed to see HERMOD win a fight and gain 20 points, 
terribly.  Tsk, tsk, SMEG MAGGOD beat ZOMBIE BAIT and ZOMBIE BAIT lost 9 points.  
You're breakin' my heart.  Going for broke or broken, our Duelmaster VIPER challenged 
this turn.  And it's out with the old, in with the new, as VIPER takes the Title and 
last week's bar tab from the old Duelmaster.  Heh, heh.  Kickbacks and bribes, 
kickbacks and bribes, how else do you think some of these guys win their fights?  
Skill?  Ha!   
     My mother always told me, 'If you don't have anything nice to say, start 
talking.' I loved that woman.  GENERATION X, I suppose you'll be glad to know you 
were this turn's most avoided team.  Care to know who is the most afraid of you?  And 
who led the way in this mass act of cowardice?  Let's see, well, whatcha know?  It 
was AESIR.  Ha ha ha ha!  Ooh, I'm frightfully impressed, SALDORINIVAN KIRO was this 
turn's most challenged warrior.  Watch that ego swell, sports fans.  I guess I can 
give a little credit to SKADI of AESIR for challenging up by 24 to OF ALHAZRED.  
SKADI lost to get 60 points of recognition.   
     Death and Taxes.  The less death I see, the more it taxes my patience.  Let's 
see if anyone's dead or dying.  Titanium shields and bamboo daggers, guess what brave 
team is developing these kinds of weapons?   
     I was about to buy a new quill pen the other day, but some fighter took it for 
an epee.  Forgive me for writing with a dagger.  Phlllt!  Just had to do that before 
I leave the fine city of OSKSI.  I feel much better now.  Paste this one in your 
scrapbooks, you'll need the kindling come this winter-- Snide Clemens

Vicki -- Um, hmm, your questions:  Yes, but it was probably the sauce.  Why Delarquan
gourmands get all excited about that "fish sauce" I can't fathom.  I saw them making
it once, and it would turn your stomach.  For that matter, there are some things
cooks do with salted dried fish up in my part of the world that leave me queasy.  As
for the mouth on Where Dreams etc., well, yes, it's big, but he'd need a big one to
swallow down SOME of the dreams around here.  The final loss... eh.  I got out alive,
and that's the important thing.  You might try trapping Noodles with string-cheese,
hard to slide away with that gripping!

Pasta tonight, and would you prefer chicken and white wine, or beef and red? --
Velovorinsal Nors

Existance Mundane -- Good, that's my goal. -- Saldorinivan Kiro

Miserys Hollow Chasm -- But it was out of the wind. -- Darirokan Kor

We salute the tourney participants of Osksi, all of 'em.  After considering naming
names for special salutes, we realized that it would cut into the possible personals
we might get to write (there's a limit of some kind on our use of the hands), so...
just a general salute. -- the Games Librarians

Kvasir -- Oh, well.  I couldn't realistically expect to defeat someone who does
TOURNEYS, could I? -- Darirokan Kor

Loabal Domination -- My loabs are totally dominated and oppressed!  I can hardly
stand it.  Maybe I should try NOT standing it, and go lie down.... -- Saldorinivan
Kiro

Zombie Bait -- Have you no--  Oh, you're a golem.  Of course you have no pride.  Oh,
well. -- Delisandara Meru
P.S.  My thanks for all the skills.

Hungry Hungry Hippo -- Oh, gods, not only did you eat my LUNCH, you ate my HAND, too.
Ouch.  Give it back. -- Velovorinsal Nors

                        BLOODGAMES at the WINTER FACE-TO-FACE

Back by popular demand, we will be having Bloodgames at the Winter 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:

     DM 96:  for Face-to-Face attendees, with turn-by-turn strategies, and 
     DM 97:  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 is 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 DM 96, there no regular challenges, only bloodfeuds.  
For DM 97, warriors may not change their strategy from round to round (to make it fair 
for those who could not attend the F-t-F).  There will be no DA challenges.

TURN PROCESSING AND DUE DATES -- If you are not attending the FTF, we must have your 
rollups and strategies by Wednesday, January 11, 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 surviving 
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 A.D.  Astute managers will note that 
this means a slim, but possible chance that a warrior designed from scratch will 
survive the Bloodgames, win one of the top three places, and go on to glory in A.D.  
That warrior 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!
