                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Not surprisingly, I was able to beat Psirena.  I send challenges out this turn
to Take Your Lumps and Absolution.  A win should grant me immortality.  Hopefully I'm
able to make that win happen and give you the entire scoop of who I am.

                                      SPY REPORT

     I can't believe the violence in ARVAT!  I still haven't told Mom I'm writing 
Spyreports.  She'd have a cow!  Well, here we go...  I don't wanna hurt anybody's 
feelings or anything, but DEATH BY DESIGN really goofed with their 1-0-0.  PAINFUL 
THOUGHT like really fought hard to move up to 4th from 11th.  Way to go!  MVP award 
for S.W.A.T.?  SECRET SQUIRRELS' proud of him after beating HANNANNA and getting 25 
points.  Talk about yer major upsets!  MATHEU's match with KHALHUMS DWARF cost him a 
loss of 9 points!  What a putz!  EMPTY BOTTLE fights so hard to be Duelmaster, then 
quits fighting and loses the title.  No one said he was a genius...  And I was just 
getting used to the ex-Duelmaster's habit of...(!)  Oh well, welcome TIA MATTE.  
Aren't DEVIL ADVOCATES proud.  (Oh, my.) Who was the wiseguy that said ARVAT's 
Duelmaster was paying for drinks at The Warty Toad?  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?  The warriors of DEVIL ADVOCATES 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 DEVIL ADVOCATES' been avoiding DEVIL ADVOCATES so 
much?  Or is it just that they're too scared?  Like, is BALKIR popular, or what?  He 
was challenged the most in all of ARVAT!  He's got a 1-5-0, is that good?  Some 
fights are really unfair.  How do you think FIZZGIGUE feels about being challenged by 
ABSOLUTION, 21 points above him?  ABSOLUTION beat FIZZGIGUE.  No surprise about that. 
Really I'm not surprised ABSOLUTION would do such a scummy thing, either.  I'm not so 
sure BRAINS MCGEE knew all the facts when he challenged DEE N. EMMI of DEVIL 
ADVOCATES.  I saw BRAINS MCGEE stumbling and dribbling at The Warty Toad last week... 
BRAINS MCGEE lost to DEE N. EMMI, but he got 3 points.  DEE N. EMMI won, and got 2 
points.  I don't get it.   
     Challenges, revenges, Bloodfeuds.  All ARVAT 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 know how much you like reading this stuff, but I really should stop.  I had 
a fun time, see you later-- Debby Tonte

Assur -- Just thought I'd mention:  Mordant, Zuwayza, Tricorus, they just aren't the
same without you.  The Random Maniac is slipping back into the darkness, The
Enquirer's replacement has no real verve, and no one else in Tricorus has any
answers.  We miss you. -- Jorja
P.S.  At least, I miss you.

Tia Matte -- Ah, hot tea!  A real treat on a day like this.  This, as far as we're
concerned, is the real, true, first day of winter.  It snowed.  Not just a few flakes
drifting around, real snow, at least an inch and maybe two.  The snowplows were out.
It's real.  Again.  I mean, we already HAD winter a few, nine or so, months ago.  Why
do it again? -- Catfish Annie

Gutted Gary -- You're a mess, and really gross to look at.  Can't you get that sewed
up, at least? -- Hannalouise

Empty Bottle -- What I liked best, when you tilted JUST so, and the wind blew across
the mouth of the bottle and made a sound like a foghorn.  It made me feel all warm
and fuzzy, which leads me to suspect that dueling may have disturbed the balance of
my mind, but there it is.  I liked that sort of hooting sound. -- Psirena

Matheu -- I thought you were a fish, and you turned out to be an old boot.  Damn. --
Fizzgigue

Undercover Lily -- You need to dig out before you get snowed in and smother. --

                        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!
