                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, IAYE?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens before? 
Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  HER BEST ASSETS turned their 3-1-1 turn into a 
3rd place rank in the listings this turn.  Any better than this, and you get put on 
hit lists.  And if variety is the spice of life, IAYE may be getting bland, as LOST 
IN PACE 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?  PACE'S WILD was the most avoided team?  Bunch of lily livered... 
grumble... mumble... curse...  And it looks like LENPROS avoided them the most this 
turn.  What a pack of would be losers, if you ask me.  Hmph.  LUMBER JACK was 
challenged more times this turn than the Duelmaster.  Now was the DM insulted or 
feared?  Heh, heh.  I guess I can give a little credit to WHITE THIGHS of HER BEST 
ASSETS for challenging up by 21 to BUKKA WHITE.  WHITE THIGHS won to get 105 points 
of recognition.   
     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.  HER BEST ASSETS has cause to pause today, 
as CLEAVAGE was sent to the Dark Arena, and came back--though not in the best of 
moods, I'll wager.  Honor is like a chainmail shirt, it only shines through use.  
Certain nameless cowards will doubtless rebuke me on this one.   
     There's got to be a better place in IAYE to get a drink than The Rat Nest!  Any 
suggestions?  Phlllt!  Just had to do that before I leave the fine city of IAYE.  I 
feel much better now.  Paste this one in your scrapbooks, you'll need the kindling 
come this winter-- Snide Clemens

All Jacked Up -- Big point turn, guys!  No wonder we avoid! -- The Lenpros

Lost In Pace -- I would like to say someting nice-- like congrats on the DM Title--
but I find little joy and praise in my heart for your having killed Doctor Dersch. --
Lenpro
P.S.  Interpreted, that means-- you dirty, rotten, low-down killer.

The Lenpros mourn the passing of Doctor Dersch, a 9-15-9-21-9-14-7 mode striker.  May
he fight well in That Great Arena In The Sky. -- Lenpro

Sultry Walk -- I enjoyed watching you wiggle around in those high heels.  My, my.  It
was my pleasure to take advantage of you. (wink) -- Senator Smith

Tooth Pace -- Not only did I pray, but I brushed. (chuckle) -- Archbishop Arndt

M. Chardinee -- Thanks for being there.  I enjoyed every single minute of that romp
in the sands. -- Honorable Hafale

Hey, Scagnetti; I enjoyed your spotlight.  It was well done.  Who wrote it for you?
-- That "same old nice guy Lenpro"

As you requested in your spot, Mr. Sajak....
   There once was a feller named Pat.
   Who sang off-key and flat.
   His pal named Pace
   Was wild and base.
   And jacked ole Pat like a rat.

   They fumed and they fought.
   Whilst attention they sought.
   But stardome never caught.
   So life was all for naught.

   Until... (But that's another story for another time.) -- Lenpro

Pacemask -- Why am I still alive?  You were supposed to kill me.  I suck. -- Jack
Rabbit

Bukka White -- Come get me.  I want you to.  Please, one and done me.  Cause you
don't mean Jack. -- Meoff

Jorja -- So please explain your "one" comments a little further than, cause I gotta
hear this. -- Pat Sajak

Jorja -- You should name your team after insects instead of dogs, 'cause your
warriors are droppin' like flies. -- Jack Scagnatti

Pacemask -- It was the way your loin cloth flapped in the wind.  It startled me. --
Midnight Barker
P.S.  When startled, I bark.

Pacemaker -- It happens.  The name of the game is not Pattycake in the Park, after
all. -- Jorja

Chevy Pace -- Eh?  Now it's snowing. -- Jorja

One Eyed Jack -- Yes, but did you see those DUCKS? -- Speckle

Jack Scagnetti -- Tedious of you. -- Ghost of Cor-Culainn

Blind Lemon -- What?  I was baying at the moon and didn't realize the fight had
started.  Sorry. -- Little Bayer

Bo Carter -- Well, *I* didn't know you had a right to be sneaking around in the dark!
There was no need to throw a boot at me.  Somebody could've just SAID it was okay. --
Midnight Barker, feeling a deep sense of ill usage

I dunno who the guy with the feather was, but he sure ran when I lunged at him! --
Muley

                        BLOODGAMES at the WINTER FACE-TO-FACE

Back by popular demand, we will be having Bloodgames at the Winter 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 96:  for Face-to-Face attendees, with turn-by-turn strategies, and 
     DM 97:  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 96, there no regular challenges, only bloodfeuds.  
For DM 97, 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, January 11, 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!
