                    Blood on a Purple Robe: A Bloodgames Primer
                                by One Armed Bandit

     Twice a year, there is a great gathering.  These tiny men with their stained
clothing and great intellects do not look like your traditional gladiators, but they
will meet and compete for a chance at Duel-2 immortality.  No, no, I'm not talking
about the managers at the Face-to-Face.  I'm talking about the murderous dwarves of
the Bloodgames.
     It's probably the worst advertised event in Duel-2 history.  It happens twice a
year, in January and July, and you don't have to fly across the country to
participate.  For some, the Bloodgames are just a distant memory of a t-shirt that
never arrived, newer managers may have never even heard of it.  For others, though,
it is a way of life.  And it can be yours, too.
     The cost:  $10 to roll up the team, $49 to run them.  At each Face-To-Face
tourney, two Bloodgames arenas are run.  One of them (called the FtF Bloodgames) gets
run round-by-round for ten rounds, and warriors are allowed to change their
strategies, avoid, and make Bloodfeud challenges.  For the other arena (called the
Mail-In Bloodgames), there are no bloodfeuds or avoids and each warrior must use the
same strategy and train for all ten rounds.  You can participate in both even if you
don't attend the FtF, but you'll be at a slight disadvantage in the FtF Bloodgames
(the Mail-In Bloodgames is a perfectly level playing field).
     The teams:  Each team consists of TEN warriors, one of EACH style.  You can
design each warrior however you want, as long as the stats add up to 84 points and no
stat is lower than a 3 or higher than a 21 (referred to as DYOs or design-your-own
warriors).  Simply write down the following information on a piece of paper and mail
it to RSI (or email it to csr@reality.com): your name, your account number, the words
"Mail-In Bloodgames" or "FtF Bloodgames", the team name, and all ten warriors (name,
style, gender, ST-CN-SZ-WT-WL-SP-DF).  If you submit them early enough you will
probably get a chance to see the overviews before sending in strategies for each of
them (using a normal strategy sheet, remember only one strategy and one train for the
entire event).  If you want to play it safe, however, you can submit strategies along
with the team information, just write "NEW" in each of the Warrior ID spots and
either "MI BG" or "FTF BG" in the Game # spot.  Some managers who are especially
ambitious will roll up each team more than once, and look over the overviews to
determine which team had the best luck in the roll-up process.  Just remember, it
costs $10 each time you roll them up.
     The rules:  So what's the catch? $59 for 10 design-your-own warriors?  Not so
fast, buddy.  At the end of ten rounds, the top three warriors of different styles
from each arena will be granted immortality, trained up to the minimum ADM
requirements, and will graduate to ADM.  Every other warrior will be gone forever.
Executed, freed, or retired to a quiet life on the farm like your childhood dog
Buster, if that helps you sleep at night.  If the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd ranked warriors
are a LU, a WS, and an AB, then those three will win the prizes.  However, if the
1st, 2nd, and 3rd ranked warriors are a LU, a LU, and a WS, the 2nd place LU is out
of luck, his prize will drop down to the highest ranking member of a style that isn't
LU or WS.  So what does it take to be one of the top ranked warriors?  Warriors are
ranked based on number of kills, first and foremost, with their record and
recognition points being the tie breakers.  Oh, did I mention that the chances of
dying are FIVE TIMES that of a normal arena?
     What to expect:  You will run into many opponents who are SZ 3, who have 21 WT
and 21 WL, who are using a 10 KD and aiming for the vitals, who are using unusual
weapons that Duel-2 folklore says have a greater chance of delivering that killing
blow, such as the Battle Axe.  You may run into such classic archetypes as the 17-3-
3-21-21-8-11 ST or the 17-16-3-3-21-3-21 AB.
     So why should you play?  There are many reasons.  You don't have to feel guilty
about killing your friend's warrior, for starters, because that's the whole
objective.  Unique kill text make it all the sweeter, too.  You won't see anyone get
"pierced completely through" or "skewered through their vital organs" anywhere else
(at least I hope not).  Not only is it exciting to read, but my most rewarding
warrior came from the Bloodgames and yours could, too.  Whether you are a tournament
player or an arena player, if your warrior is tough enough to survive the Bloodgames,
he's tough enough for whatever task you set him to.  My first Bloodgames graduate was
a warrior named Sushi Slinger of Sea Dogs: 17-3-3-21-21-12-7 SL.  He left Old
Valamantis with a 10-0-3 record and immortality.  Since then, he has been a
Tournament Victor in the Freshman tourney, a Runner-Up in the ADM tourney, and a
three-time Tournament Victor in the Eligibles tourney.  He is now fighting in Primus
against the best of the best and holding his own.  Your Bloodgames graduate could
join him in Primus, too.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings warriors!  It is I, Zontani Sharp Eyes, here to bring report of the 
clash and bustle of the weekly ZUKAL games.  Did only my eyes note the 3-1-0 record 
which HOT STUFF managed to post this round?  I don't doubt that such a record will 
draw challengers!  BILBO BAGGINNI caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial 
commission as he skillfully bested BISBEE BLUE and was awarded 21 points in 
recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, BILBO BAGGINNI put down BISBEE 
BLUE, causing him to lose 16 points of recognition in the process.  Due to his 
absence and inability to defend the throne, HOMESTAR has lost the title of 
Duelmaster.  This time victory fell to the grasp of the usurper.  All hail EIGHTH 
MATE, Duelmaster of ZUKAL!  No confirmation, but my sources claim that the top team 
has gained their position using magical aids.  Charmed weapons perhaps?   
     I have been in deep conclave with my spies who watched all that has recently 
transpired.  Indeed there is much I would report.  ZUKAL, city of gladiators!  Mighty 
among the names of thy guilds is SEA DOGS, 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 MIDDLE ITALY last week.  Busy avoiding SEA DOGS?  Mighty fighters cannot 
but expect competition from those below.  BISBEE BLUE take warning!  You have more 
than a few enemies in ZUKAL.   
     Is not Death a warrior's foremost adviser?   Warriors, may this counselor stand 
ready at your right hand forever!  Fate is a fickle mistress.  She showers the 
miserable with fortune but sets enemies against the victorious.  Remember this!   
     A thought before I go.  Each warrior practices one style, but must not the wise 
manager learn the secrets of them all?  More than a sharp eye must I keep, indeed a 
stout pair of legs must I keep as well!  The endless paths of Alastari await me!  
Till next we meet remember:  a fool flies into a rage quickly and often.  The wise 
are angered by the same thing only once.  Zontani Sharp Eyes

teach so well.  I have a teaching certificate, you know, but I figured a little
combat training would be a good thing before I ventured into a classroom. -- Bisbee

The Cult Member is disappointing.  I had hoped to hear of some exotic and mysterious
