                                      SPY REPORT

     Ready for some action-packed adventure, some thrills, chills and spills?  Well 
fergit it, cause this is the Spyreport for TALCAMA.  Uncool, SUPERIOR FORCES 6N.  I 
mean 2-2-0 is bad.  Will they will be allowed to fight?  I say use 'em for training 
practice!  RYAN'S HENCHMEN like really fought hard to move up to 3rd from 9th.  Way 
to go!  MVP award for EXTRADONAIRE?  CHAMPIONS' proud of him after beating SALLANCHE 
and getting 18 points.  Talk about yer big time losers!  LOCAR got smashed by CLOVER, 
and lost 14 points!  Like SUPERIOR FORCES 6N's HOLLY is sweating since she got 
challenged by Duelmaster WHATAMONSTER!  Was that a tear I saw in HOLLY's eye, as she 
took over Duelmastership?  And wasn't WHATAMONSTER fit to be tied!  Who was the 
wiseguy that said TALCAMA's Duelmaster was paying for drinks at The Original Arthur's 
Last Stand?  Don't look at me!   
     So just why would someone becomes a warrior anyway?  It can't be for these 
really neat Spyreports can it?  CENTER FOR OLDS was the most avoided team.  Is a 
1191-1170-70 record really that scary?  Hhmph!  What kind of warriors are THE 
GRATEFUL UNDEAD?  CENTER FOR OLDS, an easy team to beat if I ever saw one, can't get 
them to accept an invitation!  Like, is HELMSMAN popular, or what?  He was challenged 
the most in all of TALCAMA!  He's got a 5-5-0, is that good?  Some fights are really 
unfair.  How do you think ERIN GO BRAGH feels about being challenged by WILD WANDA, 
17 points above him?  A lotta people lost a lotta money in a lotta bets, when WILD 
WANDA challenged ERIN GO BRAGH, 17 points below and lost!  Send 'im to the Dark 
Arena!  ELRON THE BOLD must not be a good enough fighter to get in fair fights.  He 
challenged I B BAD.  13 is a big difference.  (Well, that's what they tell me.) I 
thought ELRON THE BOLD showed great skill and promise when he beat I B BAD.  All 
right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     Man, all these warriors dying and killing each other!  Don't you guys ever give 
it a break?  Hey!  Quit laughing!  Just because DEE QOO had 9-6-0 was no reason for 
CENTER FOR OLDS to send him to the Dark Arena!  Stop it!  How cruel!  SKI-BUM 18 
heartlessly sent his to ZED DARKSTONE certain fate in the Dark Arena.  Is a 7-11-2 
bad or something?  DEAD BOB really fought hard against BUBBLY BAALZEBUB.  That'll 
teach THE GRATEFUL UNDEAD not to go and kill any of SKI-BUM 18's guys again, huh!  
Fight, fight, fight.  Is that all you guys can do?   
     Remember, blood on a purple robe may stain.  Soak it in cold water, and hand 
wash.  I know how much you like reading this stuff, but I really should stop.  I had 
a fun time, see you later-- Debby Tonte

                        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!
