                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, warriors of JHELUM!  Once again I've been called out of retirement 
for my abilities and insights into Spyreporting.  Woof!  DOGS OF WAR were a bunch of 
dogs after TRIBAL COUNCIL got through with 'em!  2nd ain't so sweet as 1st!  Phhbltt! 
Too much drinking and too little dodging gave TL;DR a 0-3-0!  I got a good laugh out 
of it!  What's with PARACHUTE CAT?  It actually beat LEGION OF VIRTUE's HONOR, and 
walked away with 16 more points from the fight.  Laughs were big at LEGION OF VIRTUE 
while they watched VALOR clobber GRRUNCH.  He lost 10 points and got bruised from 
objects thrown from the stands.  I'm sure JHELUM is excited about CUSSTER, the new 
Duelmaster from DOGS OF WAR.  (remember?)  But when you've seen as many as I have...  
I suppose you want to hear some rumors and dirty gossip about your fellow fighters?  
Tough!   
     If at first you don't succeed, avoid.  That'll get you in the Spyreports.  The 
most avoided team was TRIBAL COUNCIL.  The bums at JOTUN couldn't face the challenges 
from TRIBAL COUNCIL!  No excuse for that!  How well I know the feeling of being the 
most challenged warrior, CRIME AND PUNISHMENT!  Don't make idle boasts, they may come 
back to haunt you.   
     A fighter's lot is filled with strife, revenge, and killing.  Some fighters 
don't accept this.  The best do.  Here's some advice:  study your opponent, master 
many skills, fight dirty.   
     Many other cities have retirement homes for aged warriors.  Any plans here?  
JHELUM is a nice place to live, but I don't like to live in nice places.  Time for my 
medication, so I'll leave now.  Practice, practice, practice!-- Olaf Modeen

We can hope that the "positions are empty" is the worst this ill-numbered turn
brought us, eh?  Not that, ahem, WE believe that stuff, but if a lot of people around
(like the fans) are believing it, well, it carries a certain weight in the world,
doesn't it? -- the Dogs of War
P.S.  Running Deer, you going to the winter tourney?  We hear they're holding it
somewhere warm!

Brave 1 -- That makes me feel better.  Thanks. -- Cusster

Snapping Turtle -- Well, of course!  You couldn't expect me to just... SURRENDER to
you, surely? -- Blind Betsy

Bestla -- Now I'm confused.  Shouldn't you be... taller?  If you're a giant or
something.  Not that I ever *heard* of a half-elf giant, but then again, why not? --
Fenris Khan

Hex -- Magic.  I knew it. -- Warburton

Honor -- I wouldn't've been vicious if you'd quit sooner.  I was just trying to end
things before one of us got SERIOUSLY hurt.  As in, dead.  Don't want that! -- Dawe

                        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!
