                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     I arrive here for the third time, this time having traveled all the way from
Mercury.  That's a long way, you know?  That makes Mercury and me 1-1 in title
fights, but I have one other battle edge against him, making it 2-1 Travel.
     I have three pieces of advice to give you from the throne:
          save your money.
          see the world
          do good deeds
My grandmother taught me those at an early age.  I miss her.  She would have been a
fine manager, I am sure.
     Travel, Duelmaster

                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail MORYA!  Warriors of the arena, prepare to be praised and blamed for your 
deeds.  Now keep the taverns open late tonight, for there are sorrows to drown for 
BASH BROS BODY, whose 0-3-0 this turn dropped them by 4 into 8th.  And let's see, 
JUPITER fought PSYCHO DAD and gained 17 points and contributed to PLANETS' 2-2-0.  
Defending its title for another turn, TRAVEL kept MY GENERATION's warrior, ELECTRIC 
BOOGALOO, from claiming the throne.  By the way, was that our Duelmaster that I saw 
last night, cramped under the table at Arthur's Last Stand?   
     I tell you, a green quarterstaff lasts longer than a seasoned sapling.  A basher 
friend of mine assures me this is true.  DODGE BULLETS has cause to stand tall, as 
they were MORYA's most avoided team.  A smart manager knows this is a team to beat.  
And guess who avoided DODGE BULLETS stable the most?  Believe it or not, it was THE 
PROPHETS.  Anyone surprised?  The most challenged warrior this turn was DODGE 
BULLETS' warrior POP TARGET.  More fighters challenged him than challenged the 
Duelmaster!  In a brave attempt, PLUTO from PLANETS challenged up 24 points to fight 
WATER RAT from the LORDS OF DISCIPLINE stable.  PLUTO perhaps got his just desserts, 
seeing as he was overcame by WATER RAT and ended up with 63 recognition points.  
URANUS of PLANETS had better have a good reason for challenging down 9 points in a 
challenge which he lost.  I thought URANUS showed great skill and promise when he was 
beat by ACCRUED INTEREST.  All right, so I slept through it!  Big deal!   
     We only live a short time in this world, so why not take a sharp blade, and 
shave it close?  GHOSTWALKERS has lost THUMPER to the arena in the sky, but they 
don't seem to be worried.  What do you expect from 5-7-0?  Is it really true that 
MORYA has more dishwashers per capita that fighters?  Just thought I'd ask...   
     I like this place, MORYA, the taverns have old wine, and young serving girls.  
Who could ask for more?  Well, I'm burning daylight here in MORYA and I've a long 
road ahead of me.  Happy Trails.  Until the sun next rises and my pen sets to paper-- 
Alarond the Scribe

A very, very fine spotlight and tribute to Mary Mei.  Well done, Koroshiya. --
Finance Manager
P.S.  We Expense Accounts salute your fighting and writing skills.

Luckie Looie -- You didn't need insurance, I see.  How am I going to support my
family? -- Insurance

Storm Warning -- You weather forecasters are seldom right.  But, I sure was! --
Accrued Interest

Mercury -- It was a grand battle, but it was time for my 3rd DM Title. -- Travel
(Hopefully, here to stay a while.)

Fratsfa Slave -- The pleasure was all mine.  Call me anytime you need a Consultant.
-- Consultation

Health.  Humility.  Honor.  Let the budget cuts begin. -- Finance Manager

Travel -- Congratulations on being Duelmaster again.  While you were desperate
multiple times, you prevailed.  Good job! -- Mercury

Pop Target -- I thought we had a close, exciting match.  The fans were happy.  All
those fights of yours must equate to a lot of experience and many skills.  Thanks for
the lesson. -- Venus

Psycho Dad -- It would be easier to say something positive, if I did not expect
belittling comments from you.  Even when you're losing, you seem to gain recognition
points.  You must be improving.  Thanks for the skills. -- Pluto

Slinger -- I think I put a number of red spots on you this time.  Or maybe they are
purple. -- Jupiter

Wicker Gremlin -- Congratulations.  I told Mr. X that epees were too fragile.  Next
time I will have a real weapon and I won't need to try and wring your neck with my
bare hands. -- Jonah (nods respectfully)

Flint -- I forsee that you will lose your next match. -- Obadiah the Prophet

Uranus -- I am going to tell you this just once.  If you need it, I can use single
syllable words.  You probably got lucky with Mary Mei and I am not Psych.  If you
goons start challenging me, I will kill you. -- Water Rat

Stargazer -- Let's see: Turn 348-JUPITER defeated PSYCHO DAD (Jupiter Challenged),
Turn 358-VENUS vanquished PSYCHO DAD (Venus Challenged), Turn 360-PSYCHO DAD was
vanquished by MERCURY ( Psych blood feud), Turn 366 -PSYCHO DAD was viciously subdued
by PLUTO (match up), Turn-367-URANUS overcame PSYCHO DAD ( match up), Turn 368-
PSYCHO DAD was defeated by Venus (Psych challenged.  Pluto Challenged Mongo this
same turn), Turn 370-Pluto savagely defeated PSYCHO DAD (Match up), Turn 371- PSYCHO
DAD was viciously subdued by PLUTO (Psych challenged).  We are not imagining
anything.  We come across you a lot. -- Psycho Dad

Jonah --  Good fight.  Sorry about breaking your weapon and back up.  You hit like a
mule. -- Wicker Gremlin

Pluto -- New strategy.  We thought it would work. -- Psycho Dad

Thumper -- .... -- Mongo Crush

He said it looks like you got thumped.  We think that was funny, Mongo. -- Psycho Dad

Match -- Why you hit me?  I hit you!  Okay?  Lern da rulez, stooped! -- Big Guy
Jackie

Eye Bags -- You'll be Eye Steamer-trunks by 2015!  Get some sleep. -- Jorja

Uranus -- She didn't expect to die, either, but it happens. -- Jorja, Dodge Bullets
P.S.  Certain agreements prevent us from bloodfeuding formally.

Jupiter -- And I hope it slung me right out of the system. -- Slinger

Mongo Crush and Psycho Dad -- Well, of course I would, but I'd have to die or
graduate first, which is a problem. -- Lucky Looie

Longshot -- Watching tornadoes is cheaper than going to the movies, if you've got a
good seat. -- Jorja

Two-three.  Well, it could've been worse.

Venus -- I will orbit YOU any time, so long as Mom Target isn't around. -- Pop Target

Accrued Interest -- You may ignore my warnings NOW, but the STORM IS COMING. -- Storm
Warning

Insurance -- Your policy has expired. -- Lucky Looie

Jupiter -- Damn, cut it too close that time and fell into your gravity well.  You

                        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:

  FTF-Style (DM 98):      for Face-to-Face attendees, with turn-by-turn strategies
  Mail-in-Style (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 are 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 the FTF-style bloodgames, there are no regular 
challenges, only bloodfeuds.  For the Mail-in arena, warriors may not change their 
strategy from round to round (to make it fair for those who could not attend the 
FTF).  There will be no DA challenges in either arena.

TURN PROCESSING AND DUE DATES -- If you are not attending the FTF, we must have your 
rollups and strategies by the Wednesday before the FTF, 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 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 ADM.  Astute managers will note that this means that 
three warriors that are designed from scratch will survive the Bloodgames, win one of 
the top three places, and go on to immortal glory!  One of those warriors 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!
