                             Notes from the arena champ.

     First, I must thank Typhon for giving me an opportunity to fight for the throne.
He is a great champion whom I fear will win our next battle.  And his teammate Masema
is the one who, rightfully, called me a prude.  I fear I will also lose in an
additional battle with him also.  That does not bode well for me to retain the crown,
but I can truthfully say, even if I only hold it once, I will have felt fulfilled.
Besides, Major Martin tells me he deserves the Title more than me, and he is probably
right.
     Well, I must go off to evening prayers, and I will certainly add "staying alive"
as one of my requests.  Meanwhile, here I am; come and get me.
          Sister Mary Jane, surprise Duelmaster

                                      SPY REPORT

     Ready for some action-packed adventure, some thrills, chills and spills?  Well 
fergit it, cause this is the Spyreport for IAYE.  MVP award for STINGER?  ANGRY BEES' 
proud of him after beating LITTLE ROSIE and getting 20 points.  Talk about yer major 
upsets!  LITTLE ROSIE's match with STINGER cost her a loss of 17 points!  Boo, hoo!  
MASEMA slew (slaught?  slet?) SISTER MARY JANE!  Actually I never liked her much.  
She just wanted to fight all the time.  I hear the top team insists all their 
warriors get nine hours sleep.  They want photogenic fighters for PR photos.   
     Look, you guys stick to fighting, all right?  The warriors of HER BEST ASSETS 
must be getting lonely.  They were the most avoided team.  Do you guys know something 
that I don't?  Is there some deep dark secret why LENPROS' been avoiding HER BEST 
ASSETS so much?  Or is it just that they're too scared?  Can LENPROS' MAJOR MARTIN be 
more popular than me?  He was challenged the most, but is that really the same?   
     Challenges, revenges, Bloodfeuds.  All IAYE ever talks about is fighting!  Me, 
I'm more laid back.  Like was that some Bloodfeud, or what?  (STEALTH vs. QUEEN, that 
is.) Fight, fight, fight.  Is that all you guys can do?   
     I really didn't, you know, study when I was a kid.  Who would've guessed I'd be 
a famous Spyreporter?  I know how much you like reading this stuff, but I really 
should stop.  Its been really albendranius!  Later, guys-- Debby Tonte

Gracious!  Sister Mary Jane slipped ahead of Major Martin for the DM Crown?  Tsk.
Tsk.  You go, Sister! -- Lenpro

Honey -- I like bees; not really angry ones, but pretty little honey bees.  I do.  I
also eat them for lunch.  (wink) -- Ma miller

Trustworthy Scribe -- I lost to YOU?  Well, I am glad it was to someone trustworthy.
(I guess.) -- Herr Hagedorn (translated by the publicist who hears HH say something
like "scheist".)

     (smirk) -- Alvin Moss, Trustworthy Scribe

Shiftyeyed V -- You should not have taken your eyes off of me. -- Sgt Smith

Typhon -- Thank you for the opportunity.  You are a gracious champion. -- Sister Mary
Jane

Masema -- Prude?  You call me a prude?  Of course I am a prude, you heathen!  (wink)
-- Sister Mary Jane

Health,  Humility.  Honor.  Iaye Forever. -- Lenpro

Shade -- This is disturbing.  You should be lying quietly under a tree!  And I would
then lie down there, too, and we could both take naps. -- Stripe

Masema -- Well, you know how it is, I don't actually care about the arena now.  That
game is over.  I'm going to do something new and more fun.  Maybe chase fish in the
shallows off the south coast of the island, I'd like that.  So long as there was no
danger of catching them.  Fish taste awful.  Slimey. -- Spud

Stealth -- Aha!  So that's how you got away with the extra bone!  I knew *someone*
had stolen it, but I just couldn't see how.... -- Moondog

Cup -- Huh, at least you only have TWO.  I've got six. -- Little Rosie
P.S.  Or maybe it's eight, I haven't counted lately.

Buzz -- I knew you wouldn't follow me into the water. -- Splash

Typhon -- Yes. -- Moondog

                        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!
