                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Hello, Kati-Tei!  It's good to be back on the throne.  Of course I would have
liked to regain the title by beating The Wait, but hey I'll take it.  It was still a
hard earned victory to get back on top, facing a good and worthy opponent in Lucky
Dawg.  The air up here from the throne is always crisp and clear, and I aim to stay
around a little longer than last time.  Tyefoon season is coming again soon, and
should be a strong one this year!
     As for the challenges, well, since The Plague decided to take a break from our
fair city last turn, my first challenge goes out to Four Pawz.  He has shown his
resilience and tenacity the last few moons and deserves the first shot at the title.
And in case his manager decides to come back before the summer tourney, my second
challenge goes to Angel of Arkham.  I promised him a rematch, and now he may get it.

See you on the sands,
Tyefoon Turmoil

                                      SPY REPORT

     If you were disturbed from your beauty rest only to have to watch a bunch of 
KATI-TEI brutes like you, you'd be grouchy, too.  Later days, THE PLAGUE, since DA 
DOG POWNDAZ took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  DA DOG POWNDAZ 
turned their 3-1-0 turn into a 1st place rank in the listings this turn.  Any better 
than this, and you get put on hit lists.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed to 
see SUNBANE win a fight and gain 21 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, MARLIN REEVE beat 
RED TENTACLE and RED TENTACLE lost 13 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  Looks like 
KATI-TEI has some guts at least, TYEFOON TURMOIL the Duelmaster was this turn's 
most-challenged warrior.  FOUR PAWZ challenged KATI-TEI's Duelmaster for a shot at 
the throne.  And it's out with the old, in with the new, as FOUR PAWZ takes the Title 
and last week's bar tab from the old Duelmaster.  Heh, heh.  The Swinging Aardvark, 
humph!  I've tasted better ale at mortuaries.  Where do they get this stuff?  From 
KATI-TEI's trash dumps?   
     Well, let's take a look at some more misdeeds of you miserable sword-boys.  THE 
STORM FRONT, I suppose you'll be glad to know you were this turn's most avoided team. 
Care to know who is the most afraid of you?  And who led the way in this mass act of 
cowardice?  Let's see, well, whatcha know?  It was DA DOG POWNDAZ.  Ha ha ha ha!  I 
guess I can give a little credit to UBBA-SATHLA of THE PLAGUE for challenging up by 
18 to MOHNSOON MAYHEM.  UBBA-SATHLA lost to get 30 points of recognition.   
     Some people like volunteer work in the hospitals.  I volunteer for KATI-TEI's 
morgue.  More variety.  We're all going to die in the end, so why worry if the fate 
catches up with you sooner that later?   
     There's got to be a better place in KATI-TEI to get a drink than The Swinging 
Aardvark!  Any suggestions?  Just wait 'till next time I show up here, I won't be so 
nice!  So nyaaah!  Glad to see the back of this place-- Snide Clemens

El Nino -- I'd be willing to go best of three if you wanted! -- Four Pawz

Balin Chane -- Sorry to see you were matched up against me yet again.  I'm sure you
weren't too happy to see that! -- Skitzoid Snoopy

Tyefoon Turmoil -- Will you just get the call to ADM already!  LOL -- Lucky Dawg

Skitzoid Snoopy -- I like to play with a dog from time to time, but you're a strange
one.  Very strange.  A beagle who acts like a mastiff with the temper of... I dunno,
a rabid wolf?  Well, anyway, I survived the experience, which had better be enough.
-- Balin Chane

Requiem -- Ah, an elf.  Well, half an elf, at least.  That explains a few things,
such as this sophisticated introspection.  Most people would settle for a mere wake.
-- Grimm Lurcher

Syklone Sequel -- Don't DO that!  Every time I turn around, something else has blown
down or away. -- Marlin Reeve

Yes, well, cults have always been fascinated by comets, and rightly so. -- Kohoutek

Doomed -- I've got a horrid feeling that may apply to me. -- Samara

Syklone Sequel -- Nah, the trilogy has an unfinished feel to it.  Probably have to go
for a tetralogy. -- Marlin Reeve
P.S.  Later.
P.P.S.  Much later.

Lucky Dawg -- How do you like all those crits!?  I'm starting to think I'm rounding
out my form and finding my faves!  Hope I can tell you what they actually are in a
few turns. -- Tyefoon Turmoil

Four Pawz -- That actually surprised me!  Didn't think you could get the jump on me.
But I'll give you credit... you're nothing if not persistent. -- El Nino

Marlin Reeve -- Don't get me wrong, I like our little rivalry, but there has to be
someone else around here we can fight besides each other!  Now I think that's 2 wins
for me and 2 for you by my count.  But I could be wrong.  Either way, let's make our
5th fight way down the road and fight someone else for awhile. -- Syklone Sequel

Sunbane -- You pack quite a punch!  And I used to think I could take a beating and
keep on ticking!  Guess I have to rethink my game plan. -- Wrolling Thunder

Samara -- I'll be whoever you want me to be! -- Wrolling Thunder

Ambitious Guard -- Ambition usually takes you places, but the only place it took you
this time was Smack Down City! -- Mohnsoon Mayhem

                        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!
