                                      SPY REPORT

     I can't believe the violence in ALJAFIR!  I still haven't told Mom I'm writing 
Spyreports.  She'd have a cow!  Well, here we go...  What was the name of that team 
who got 3-1-0 this turn for a total 510-694-9 you ask?  (Sure)  MIDDLE WAY's their 
name, and fighting's their game!  MVP award for BELLONA CHIST?  MIDDLE WAY's proud of 
her after beating EMBEZZLING SCRIBE and getting 16 points.  Talk about yer major 
upsets!  ZEBD ARVIN's match with MICK cost him a loss of 9 points!  Don't you think 
the Duelmaster is being unfair?  I think GRACCHUS should let VETERAN MERCENARY be 
Duelmaster for a while, without fighting about it.  I hear the top team insists all 
their warriors get nine hours sleep.  They want photogenic fighters for PR photos.   
     AAARRGH!!!  I HATE SPYREPORTING!!!  Sorry.  I just had to say it.  The warriors 
of GLADIATORS must be getting lonely.  They were the most avoided team.  Do you guys 
know something that I don't?  I don't know what FIELDS OF ELYSIUM's been doing.  They 
certainly haven't been accepting many fights from GLADIATORS, that's fer sher.  Like, 
is BRADLEY popular, or what?  He was challenged the most in all of ALJAFIR!  He's got 
a 10-6-2, is that good?  Some fights are really unfair.  How do you think DR DODGE 
feels about being challenged by FABRICIUS, 22 points above her?  I was sorry to see 
such an unfair "fight" in ALJAFIR.  FABRICIUS got 4 points after beating DR DODGE, 22 
points below him.   
     Challenges, revenges, Bloodfeuds.  All ALJAFIR ever talks about is fighting!  
Me, I'm more laid back.  Hey you guys, don't you think your families would like to 
hear from you?  Write!  (Or have someone write for you.)  
     Remember, blood on a purple robe may stain.  Soak it in cold water, and hand 
wash.  I'm getting tired of writing this stuff, so I'm calling it quits.  Its been 
really albendranius!  Later, guys-- Debby Tonte

Fabricius -- Thanks loads.  I could've gone happily all day without that: your eight
FE, your tv-downchallenge, the whole nine yards.  I suppose you killed me out of
relatively inexperienced inaccuracy, but it still hurts, you know. -- Ghost of
Tilbory Melvin

This North Fork Rabble is pathetic. -- Alida Bern

Dr Dodge -- Ah... so I see.  Resurrected out of a long retirement and to what end,
eh? -- Zebd Arvin
P.S.  How about dinner?  We all have to eat, and why not do it together?

Mick -- You were, truly, a minor threat compared to the danger of the Commission in
its irreducible cuteness labeling me a dwarf!  For that, I am greatful, and I don't
mind beginning with a loss. -- Ialgo Jahn

Titus -- Oh, wow, matched with a killer on my first fight!  I suspect I should be
glad to have survived, but where are my skills? -- Bellona Chist

                        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!
