                    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

     Well, what are you looking at, WILLAF?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Now let's all watch EMOTIONAL PANTS' 
heads swell from their 4-1-0 this turn.  Haa ha ha ha!  Big shots, big talk, big 
deal.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed to see CHANCE win a fight and gain 21 
points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, SHADOW DANCER beat CRIS CROFT and CRIS CROFT lost 9 
points.  You're breakin' my heart.  Looks like WILLAF has some guts at least, ON 
GOLDEN POND the Duelmaster was this turn's most-challenged warrior.  BRUAR challenged 
WILLAF's Duelmaster for a shot at the throne.  And if variety is the spice of life, 
WILLAF may be getting bland, as ON GOLDEN POND stays top dog in the city.  Kickbacks 
and bribes, kickbacks and bribes, how else do you think some of these guys win their 
fights?  Skill?  Ha!   
     He who fights and runs away will live to fight another day, the coward.  What's 
the big D?  GOLDEN GLADIATORS was the most avoided team?  Bunch of lily livered... 
grumble... mumble... curse...  And it looks like DRAGON'S GUARD avoided them the most 
this turn.  What a pack of would be losers, if you ask me.  Hmph.   
     Ah, now we come to my favorite part, where we see all the guys who are dead and 
gone, and get to see if their team cared.  We're all going to die in the end, so why 
worry if the fate catches up with you sooner that later?   
     What does the WILLAF arena have in common with the inns?  It's just as 
comfortable to sleep in either place.  Ha ha ha ha!  Just wait 'till next time I show 
up here, I won't be so nice!  So nyaaah!  Paste this one in your scrapbooks, you'll 
need the kindling come this winter-- Snide Clemens

Coyote -- Well, we lost out on The Jayhawks, didn't we?  While living in Lenexa, KS,
my daughter and her future husband graduated from KU.  I used to have a sign on my
refrigerator stating, "My daughter and my money go to KU."  I developed an affection
from them in those days. -- Midas

Eleesia -- No you couldn't, and good job for it!  The recent Mailer gave me even
further reason to realize how inadequate and lucky I am. -- Golden Delicious

Wow!  A Yamabushi sighting!  Best team on the move!  Beat us twice!  Kudos! -- Midas
and The Golden Gladiators

Crazy Capri -- It was a good day for me.  I fought better than I thought I would. --
Golden Delicious

Baabra -- It is always a treat and a challenge to fish with you.  (wink) -- On Golden
Pond

Budokimo -- You put me in my place.  I salute you. -- Silence Is Golden

Taikutsu -- You were way too good for me.  You grounded me.  Salute. -- Golden Eagle

Cranky Corduroy -- Maybe smiling would help? -- Gold Tooth

     Nah, his wales would crack.

On Golden Pond -- I don't want to sound inhospitable, but isn't it time you left? --
Baabra Lammont
P.S.  Not that I mind the skills.

Shadow Dancer -- You'll have to dance faster, and it still won't be enough.  As a
vampire, I don't cast a shadow. -- Fangs Ardente

Bruar -- And there you are again.  Seems like it might have been a while since one of
us fought you? -- Cris Croft

Stoga Steel -- You I have seen often enough, and we seem to be establishing a good
trend her.  You challenge, I win, that kind of trend. -- Allie Barnett

Eleesia -- You're such a pretty little thing, and then you take on like that...
couldn't you be more gentle? -- Sardo Grackel
