                                      SPY REPORT

     Good day, friends and fiends, welcome to your friendly neighborhood spyreport.  
I doubt TOBIR will ever be the same.  And let's see, ZACK FAIR fought STALLONE and 
gained 14 points and contributed to MIDGAR's 3-2-0.  BROWN BEAR has lost to KUNG-FU 
MASTER, falling 11 points, while helping make THE DOGHOUSE a 0-5-0 turn.  This turn 
SPONGEBOB challenged FLOPEAR in what was TOBIR's Title bout.  Defending its title for 
another turn, SPONGEBOB kept THE DOGHOUSE's warrior, FLOPEAR, from claiming the 
throne.  Tell me, is nothing sacred?  I have heard from unimpeachable sources that 
The Deeproot Inn uses trolls in their stew.  Talk about gristle!   
     I tell you, a green quarterstaff lasts longer than a seasoned sapling.  A basher 
friend of mine assures me this is true.  DRAGONS GUARD has cause to stand tall, as 
they were TOBIR's most avoided team.  A smart manager knows this is a team to beat.  
And guess who avoided DRAGONS GUARD stable the most?  Believe it or not, it was F 
WORDS.  Anyone surprised?  Well, sports fans, take notice that FLOPEAR from THE 
DOGHOUSE was TOBIR's most challenged warrior this turn.  TIPPI TURTLE of THE DEATH 
SQUAD had better have a good reason for challenging down 15 points in a challenge 
which he won.  I thought TIPPI TURTLE showed great skill and promise when he subdued 
YELLOW DOG.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     The Dark Arena is for those who cannot win, not who cannot lose with grace.  
Dignity in life or death is the warrior's creed.  A brave warrior does not carry a 
red shield, he has nothing to cover or hide when the fight is over.  Consider well.   
     I like this place, TOBIR, the taverns have old wine, and young serving girls.  
Who could ask for more?  Always good to rest in TOBIR, but never good to wear out my 
welcome.  Look for me in future turns.  Until you see my quill in TOBIR again, 
farewell-- Alarond the Scribe

Spongebob -- I don't know what you've been soaking it, but it's awful.  Bitter, you
know?  And moldy at the same time.  I don't mind rotten, but I draw the line at
moldy. -- Yellow Dog

Warthog -- It was awful, I couldn't bite you!  What if I got warts on my tongue? --
Bill Bitemore

The Virginal Concubine isn't very interesting. -- Flopear

Fustigate -- Cool name.  What does it mean? -- Brown Bear
P.S.  First guess:  to make fusty.  Second guess:  to eliminate fustiness, possibly
through a vapor attack.
P.P.S.  Yes, I know, we could look it up, but that's too much work for the moment.

Red Xiii -- Darned if I know what that was all about, but life's like that a lot. --

Our congratulations to Spongebob. -- Jorja and the Doghouse pack

                        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:

     DM 98:  for Face-to-Face attendees, with turn-by-turn strategies, and 
     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 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 98, there no regular challenges, only bloodfeuds.  
For DM 99, 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, July 7, 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!
