                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

Hello Arvat,

     It is I, your King for a turn, Mr. Schicicles.  A peculiar name I have, wouldn't
you say?  Yes, yes, it was due to some sort of "input error"--at least that is what I
was told.  My true surname is Schmesticles.  Marvin Schmesticles.
     This past turn, Filburt saw fit to challenge me.  The win put me on the throne
and prompted the Commission to extend an invitation to the Isle my way.
     For the curious, I am a PR  11-13-8-17-15-5-15  N/G.  Epee, Mod/Low, Lunge
tactic, Defense learn.   I must say, I am pretty damn happy about these faves.  I am
also the first of my style to graduate for the boss too.  Pretty cool.
     On the way out, I am issuing two challenges.  We'll see who gets a shot.  Until
next time...
     Your Duelmaster,
          Mr. Schicicles

                                      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...  Uncool, BORN TO KILL.  I mean 
0-0-0 is bad.  Will they will be allowed to fight?  I say use 'em for training 
practice!  The guys at DEVIL ADVOCATES like really pulled together to get a 4-1-0 
this turn, moving up by 6.  What was the name of that team who got 3-1-0 this turn 
for a total 7-12-0 you ask?  (Sure)  OLD GEEZERS' their name, and fighting's their 
game!  MVP award for OBLIVION?  ANGELS OF PAIN's proud of him after beating NEWBURT 
and getting 18 points.  Talk about yer major upsets!  DROGON's match with SLUETHY LU 
cost her a loss of 13 points!  Was that a tear I saw in APOCALYPSE's eye, as he took 
over Duelmastership?  And wasn't MR SCHICICLES fit to be tied!  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?  
Hhmph!  What kind of warriors are DEVIL ADVOCATES?  DEVIL ADVOCATES, an easy team to 
beat if I ever saw one, can't get them to accept an invitation!  Like, is WARGRATH 
popular, or what?  He was challenged the most in all of ARVAT!  He's got a 3-1-0, is 
that good?  People were asking me did RAGE REALLY challenge WARGRATH?  (all right, 
maybe they didn't, but it sounded good!) It wasn't a spectacular fight, or anything, 
but WARGRATH wants me to write about it since he bested RAGE.  Satisfied?   
     Man, all these warriors dying and killing each other!  Don't you guys ever give 
it a break?  What if they had a fight and nobody showed up?  I'd be out of a job, 
that's what!!!   
     Remember, blood on a purple robe may stain.  Soak it in cold water, and hand 
wash.  I gotta leave.  ARVAT is like such a dump, and you guys smell too much!  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:

  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!
