                    Blood on a Purple Robe: A Bloodgames Primer
                                by One Armed Bandit

     Twice a year, there is a great gathering.  These tiny men with their stained
clothing and great intellects do not look like your traditional gladiators, but they
will meet and compete for a chance at Duel-2 immortality.  No, no, I'm not talking
about the managers at the Face-to-Face.  I'm talking about the murderous dwarves of
the Bloodgames.
     It's probably the worst advertised event in Duel-2 history.  It happens twice a
year, in January and July, and you don't have to fly across the country to
participate.  For some, the Bloodgames are just a distant memory of a t-shirt that
never arrived, newer managers may have never even heard of it.  For others, though,
it is a way of life.  And it can be yours, too.
     The cost:  $10 to roll up the team, $49 to run them.  At each Face-To-Face
tourney, two Bloodgames arenas are run.  One of them (called the FtF Bloodgames) gets
run round-by-round for ten rounds, and warriors are allowed to change their
strategies, avoid, and make Bloodfeud challenges.  For the other arena (called the
Mail-In Bloodgames), there are no bloodfeuds or avoids and each warrior must use the
same strategy and train for all ten rounds.  You can participate in both even if you
don't attend the FtF, but you'll be at a slight disadvantage in the FtF Bloodgames
(the Mail-In Bloodgames is a perfectly level playing field).
     The teams:  Each team consists of TEN warriors, one of EACH style.  You can
design each warrior however you want, as long as the stats add up to 84 points and no
stat is lower than a 3 or higher than a 21 (referred to as DYOs or design-your-own
warriors).  Simply write down the following information on a piece of paper and mail
it to RSI (or email it to csr@reality.com): your name, your account number, the words
"Mail-In Bloodgames" or "FtF Bloodgames", the team name, and all ten warriors (name,
style, gender, ST-CN-SZ-WT-WL-SP-DF).  If you submit them early enough you will
probably get a chance to see the overviews before sending in strategies for each of
them (using a normal strategy sheet, remember only one strategy and one train for the
entire event).  If you want to play it safe, however, you can submit strategies along
with the team information, just write "NEW" in each of the Warrior ID spots and
either "MI BG" or "FTF BG" in the Game # spot.  Some managers who are especially
ambitious will roll up each team more than once, and look over the overviews to
determine which team had the best luck in the roll-up process.  Just remember, it
costs $10 each time you roll them up.
     The rules:  So what's the catch? $59 for 10 design-your-own warriors?  Not so
fast, buddy.  At the end of ten rounds, the top three warriors of different styles
from each arena will be granted immortality, trained up to the minimum ADM
requirements, and will graduate to ADM.  Every other warrior will be gone forever.
Executed, freed, or retired to a quiet life on the farm like your childhood dog
Buster, if that helps you sleep at night.  If the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd ranked warriors
are a LU, a WS, and an AB, then those three will win the prizes.  However, if the
1st, 2nd, and 3rd ranked warriors are a LU, a LU, and a WS, the 2nd place LU is out
of luck, his prize will drop down to the highest ranking member of a style that isn't
LU or WS.  So what does it take to be one of the top ranked warriors?  Warriors are
ranked based on number of kills, first and foremost, with their record and
recognition points being the tie breakers.  Oh, did I mention that the chances of
dying are FIVE TIMES that of a normal arena?
     What to expect:  You will run into many opponents who are SZ 3, who have 21 WT
and 21 WL, who are using a 10 KD and aiming for the vitals, who are using unusual
weapons that Duel-2 folklore says have a greater chance of delivering that killing
blow, such as the Battle Axe.  You may run into such classic archetypes as the 17-3-
3-21-21-8-11 ST or the 17-16-3-3-21-3-21 AB.
     So why should you play?  There are many reasons.  You don't have to feel guilty
about killing your friend's warrior, for starters, because that's the whole
objective.  Unique kill text make it all the sweeter, too.  You won't see anyone get
"pierced completely through" or "skewered through their vital organs" anywhere else
(at least I hope not).  Not only is it exciting to read, but my most rewarding
warrior came from the Bloodgames and yours could, too.  Whether you are a tournament
player or an arena player, if your warrior is tough enough to survive the Bloodgames,
he's tough enough for whatever task you set him to.  My first Bloodgames graduate was
a warrior named Sushi Slinger of Sea Dogs: 17-3-3-21-21-12-7 SL.  He left Old
Valamantis with a 10-0-3 record and immortality.  Since then, he has been a
Tournament Victor in the Freshman tourney, a Runner-Up in the ADM tourney, and a
three-time Tournament Victor in the Eligibles tourney.  He is now fighting in Primus
against the best of the best and holding his own.  Your Bloodgames graduate could
join him in Primus, too.

     Thank you, thank you, thank you!
     It is so great being back here in Murska.  I am always so glad when I can help
you guys and gals out.
     These are very busy times for me indeed.  It seems I am all over the place now.
Just got back from France where I hold two positions currently:  Most Hygienic and
Bravest Soldier.  On my way here I stopped by England to pick up the award for Best
Teeth.  Yes, busy times indeed.
     But I shall not be long.  After the splendid award ceremony where I expect you
will bestow me with the same delicious Swiss roll and firm hand shake you always
honor me with in these circumstances, I am off to Primus again where I hold a tenure
as Top Natural Warrior.
     I must be going now and I hope you will sort it out here in Murska, though, so I
don't have to see you again next turn.

Ta ta!

                                      SPY REPORT

     Thankyouthankyou.  It's great for me, The Unknown Spymaster to be back in 
MURSKA.  Hope you enjoy the show.  Oh, who am I kidding?  I already got paid!  We now 
have a new top team for all of you guys to dogpile on.  CHILDREN OF LLYR now holds 
the crown and they are betting they can keep it.  ON THE ROCKS is no joke as it 
posted a 3-1-0 week advancing from 4th place to 3rd place.  Hey everybody, watch out 
for PELICAN EEL, who flew up 25 points in the rankings after mashing MAIRE MCANGUS 
like a melon.  Keep your eye on this guy.  And falling like a basher in the top ten 
was MAIRE MCANGUS, who dropped 23 points after a disappointing (to say the least) 
bout with PELICAN EEL.  4 out of 5 gladiators surveyed protect the body, so try and 
avoid aiming at that location.   
     Let's dig a little deeper into what's happening in the MURSKA arena.  Here's a 
song for you:  Who's afraid of the big, bad SEA DOGS?  Big bad SEA DOGS.  Big bad SEA 
DOGS.  MURSKA's afraid of the big bad SEA DOGS.  Tra la la la la!  And you guys like 
to boo me?  Well, unsling your rasberries, cause ON THE ROCKS beats feet every time 
SEA DOGS smiles at them.  Try farming, eh?  And who is this BRENDAL you ask, with 100 
points and a 17-18-0 record.  Ooh, the tales I could tell!  In a touching display by 
a 'touched' warrior, SAZERAC went after ICICLE, who was higher by 21 points.  Well, 
when the dust settled, SAZERAC beat ICICLE.   
     Being a spy is great--other people die and you spend the rest of the day 
drinking to their memory.  Better tanked than dead!  Remember:  alliances are great, 
but try and take your ally in the arena with you and see what happens.   
     I think I had better cut this one short.  It's been nice chatting to those of 
you whom I have not offended yet.  Well, there goes another Spy Report.  Good luck in 
next week's fights.  And remember, you can pick your friends and you can pick 
your--(loud boos), oh, you've heard that one already!-- The Unknown Spymaster

Modranect -- You didn't see that coming, now did you, huh?  And I bet you are
expecting another challenge from me this turn since my learns were so great but I

left it to Fartior to deal with you.  Hope you didn't see that coming, either.
Either way, thanks for a good fight and awesome learns.  You jungle boys are so much

well, I hear my replacement Gruel is something else.  Ha ha.  He's so clumsy and
stupid that he hasn't been able to make it in time for this turn.  Expect to see him
in the Dark Arena next turn, though. -- Mortlach

Frostbite -- Thanks for the final fight and good luck on the Isle. -- Fartior

Icicle -- With a start like that, it's hard to get back in the fight.  Think I did an
okay job with it, though.  Another go at it, perhaps? -- St Magdalene

Lucy Jordan -- Being from a jungle, I expected you to be tougher.  But I guess this
isn't your accustomed battlefield, is it? -- Tamra Kai

The Murskan Dwarf was easier than I expected, and less educational. -- Brendal

Don't talk to me about that ass, the Veteran Mercenary! -- Maire McAngus

Maire is annoyed because the Veteran Mercenary made a pass, but she should be glad
she didn't draw the Venomous Concubine!  Talk about a poisonous woman! -- Harec O'Kai

Decembre -- You're awfully short for a Shew.  Must explain the chip on your shoulder?
-- Kailie Rhinn

Mr. Bad Guy -- No, I don't think so.  A goal that is impossible to achieve isn't
worth having.  There should be at least SOME chance, after all. -- Jorja
P.S.  At the moment, just keeping up with my work is an ever-receding goal....
