                             Notes from the arena champ.

I thought Defensive Lee was British.  I took care of her, eh?  I am now Duelmaster.  
It just goes to show what a little "political protest" can do for a fine fellow like 
me. Yes sir!

To my forerunners:
The Boston Tea Party (initially referred to by John Adams as "the Destruction of the 
Tea in Boston") was a political protest by the Sons of Liberty in Boston, on December 
16, 1773.  The Sons of Liberty, some disguised as Native Americans, in defiance of the 
Tea Act of May 10, 1773, destroyed an entire shipment of tea sent by the East India 
Company, which had 342 chests of tea on board.

To the rest of you:

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly ARKERS games.  There were bitter words at Z 
GLADIATORZ's guildhouse after a 2-1-0 showing this week which dropped the stable into 
6th.  Dark Arena anyone?  MALLAFAX caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial 
commission as he skillfully bested PARIS TROUT and was awarded 19 points in 
recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, MALLAFAX put down PARIS TROUT, 
causing him to lose 8 points of recognition in the process.  Who here was not present 
for the title fight this week as LUCIFEROUS HOPE boldly challenged BOSTON TEA PARTY 
in order to strive for the Duelmasters honors?  The city has turned out in honor of 
LUCIFEROUS HOPE, for with hers arena victory she may now lay claim to the highest 
position in the city!  Heed this!  A seer has warned that if exactly 6 die in duels 
this week, the whole city shall perish!  Just remember...5 or 7!   
     I have been in deep conclave with my spies who watched all that has recently 
transpired.  Indeed there is much I would report.  ARKERS, city of gladiators!  
Mighty among the names of thy guilds is SERIOUS LEE, a guild shunned and avoided by 
many in the weekly duels.  If you didn't look down dark alleys you'd have been hard 
pressed to find any of SMITHSONIAN last week.  Busy avoiding SERIOUS LEE?  Mighty 
fighters cannot but expect competition from those below.  THE GYPSY take warning!  
You have more than a few enemies in ARKERS.  I cannot but express pride for the 
fearlessness of CURLY BILL who cast caution to the winds and challenged THE GYPSY, a 
fighter 29 points higher.  To be sure the battle was a losing one.  But I like to 
think CURLY BILL at least gave THE GYPSY a run for his money.  I can not but mention 
with disdain the name of ETON THE STALWART who this week posted a challenge to a 
warrior a full 13 points below in the rankings.  I thought ETON THE STALWART showed 
great skill and promise when he beat CRUEL LEE.  All right, so I slept through it!  
Big deal!   
     What warrior does not hone his years, impatiently waiting for the moment of his 
foe's mortality?  Fate is a fickle mistress.  She showers the miserable with fortune 
but sets enemies against the victorious.  Remember this!   
     The girls are as pretty in ARKERS as ever I remembered them....and the fighters 
as ugly!  Don't let your reputation slip!  Ahh, but I can hear the spires of a far 
off city calling to me.  I must away!  Till we meet again, remember:  a turtle walks 
slow, hides head in a shell, and harms no one; a lion runs to slay its prey.--

Defensive Lee -- I believe you have something that belongs to me.  My damn throne.  
I'm getting that back! -- The Anxious Man

Ze Zee's ve zuper!  3-0!  Zippety-zoo-zah! -- The Z Man

The ugly, clattering noise ruined the serious funeral service for Zany.  It was 
terrible!  Someone should be shot! -- Zhelda, Z Gladiatorz Assistant

Gormax, I had to chuckle at the futility of your effort. -- Zhephyr

Paris Trout, your staying power was a male in heat. Har har. -- Zest

Doc Scurlok, is that all you've got? -- Zulu

Ve Vish yu'z all a zhort Mailer.  Ve do. -- Mr. Zee

Congrats to our own Boston Tea party for upending Defensive Lee from the throne.  
Duelmaster!  Hubba hubba! -- Curator

What a novel and caring rendition of Amazing Grace that was for the burial services 
for Zany, a member of the not-very-loved Z Gladiatorz.  Truly nice. -- Curator

Defensive Lee, it was a very, very fine and difficult fight.  Seriously. -- Boston Tea 

Anxious Man, I shall plug those holes in my hull you made and soon be back to normal.  
I salute you as my better. -- Mayflower

Health. Humility. Honor.  Good luck to all in The Mailer. -- Curator and The 

Fratsfa Mercenary -- I really hope no one paid you for that fight.  If they did, I 
hope they did not pay you a lot. -- Eiger the Hardy

Khalhums Dwarf -- We have a couple of Khalhums dwarves in our stable.  They fight much 
better than you.  Perhaps you should ask them for tips. -- Eton

Niobe -- Not only am I a Stormbreaker, but it seems that I am a spirit breaker as 
well. -- Ral

Stormbreaker -- We raise our cups to Boston Tea Party; Duelmaster of Arkers. Do 
whatever you want with the other teas, but leave the Earl Grey alone! -- the Chosen

Curly Bill -- Well, one must seay, that was not expected.  You, one's old bean, aaare 
quit spiffing with ah blade.  Absolutely top hole, I have to say.  But you and one 
buhth knoh one had you.  Ah rematch would simply result in you, one's old bean, paying 
the ultimate price!  The same price that Luciferous should be paying! -- Maquro 

Belle Star -- Heh... Yoos iz weak an yoos iz furry.  Shave already!  Yoos haz more 
hair on yer face than Gutsy haz on his back...  Heh... an on his belly...heh... and on 
his butt... heh... an in his arm pitz ... Come ta tink of it, he has hair everywhere 
except his head.... Heh... Blue Wack-a-doooo! Heh... Dat wuz cool. -- 'Acky Git

Cult Member -- Yoos came back and yoos was smart enough not ta bring a whistle dis 
time.  I still broke yer leg anyway.  But look on da bright side.  At least I didn't 
kill ya again. Hur hur hur. -- Maud

Luciferous Hope -- One is still angry about what happened last turn.  One did 
everything roysh and lost one's chance to mustah revenge.  Noh one's poohr cousin is 
lying cold in the eaaarth and you are prancing aaaround sucking in perfectly spiffing 
aair.  Preay to your god that one does not mustah ah rematch.  You are destined for 
the morgue, don't you know? -- Maquro Doomaxe

Humble Lee -- Now yoos, yoos is a good fighter.  Yoos can trow a punch and make it 
hurt.  A lil' bit anywayz.  Feel free ta give me more easy winz. Hur hur hur -- Gutsag 

Captured Orc -- It painz me ta have ta smash a fellow orc.  Can't we jus' stop dis orc 
on orc violence?  Can't we jus come ta getder and smash da elves instead?  Jus' 
kiddin' I loved smacking you repeatedly in the knee.  Da crunching sound iz da best 
part! -- Ugarg Snotsnik

Zhelda -- For a glorified office tramp you talk pretty tough.  If this so called "man" 
Z Man had a set he would come and talk to me, but he does not, so he hides behind your 
skirt, massive that it is.  And, if I were you guys, I don't know that I would 
irritate Jheri Bloomers.  That guy is nuts.  He has thin skin, is unbalanced, actually 
still does live with his mom, in the basement I might add, and becomes combative when 
offended.  I'm pretty sure I would not want to be on his bad side.  So, if you want 
more warriors killed, I would keep smart-mouthing him and then be prepared for the 
consequences.  I mean, let's be real, what are you going to do?  Bleed all over him 
some more? -- Den, High Priest of the mighty Allied Axis and manager of the Hoyt

                          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 

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 

         The challenge is yours to take.  The final plans are yours to make.  
          When the dust settles, remember:  To the victor goes the spoils!
