                                      SPY REPORT

     Busy, busy, busy, lots of things happening in ARDIVENT this turn, and let's 
start with a look at some of the teams.  And let's see, SHELLEY ANN fought MARCI 
FOOTE and gained 25 points and contributed to FANDILS' 4-1-0.  CORBIN ROSS has lost 
to IRVIN, falling 16 points, while helping make BLUVALLEY WARRIORS a 1-4-0 turn.  
This week's Duelmaster bout was between LILA DEANE and our Duelmaster W. D. PURDY, 
making a challenge.  And not without some honor, LILA DEANE now claims the title and 
throne of Duelmaster of ARDIVENT.  Can someone confirm a rumor for me?  I hear the 
top team makes their losing fighters do dishes at The Seaside Manor until they win.  
     I tell you, a green quarterstaff lasts longer than a seasoned sapling.  A basher 
friend of mine assures me this is true.  BLUVALLEY WARRIORS has cause to stand tall, 
as they were ARDIVENT's most avoided team.  A smart manager knows this is a team to 
beat.  And guess who avoided BLUVALLEY WARRIORS stable the most?  Believe it or not, 
it was FANDILS.  Anyone surprised?  Well, sports fans, take notice that LILA DEANE 
from BLUVALLEY WARRIORS was ARDIVENT's most challenged warrior this turn.   
     We only live a short time in this world, so why not take a sharp blade, and 
shave it close?  We'd like to remind certain teams not to rob the graves of their 
enemies.  You know who you are; and it's considered rude.   
     Remember, blood on the purple robe does not change it from a purple robe.  Dare 
to fight bravely.  Well, I'm burning daylight here in ARDIVENT and I've a long road 
ahead of me.  Happy Trails.  Until the sun next rises and my pen sets to paper--

Look at those BluValley Warriors killing me on point gain!  Whew!  Kudos on the 4-1
and lambasting! -- WOF

W. D. Purdy?  Well, he finally made it.  Both DM and out! -- Fandil The Wise

Lila Deane -- I struggle with women-- especially pretty ones.  They are just not
normally in my lifestyle. -- Monsignor Mark

Marci Foote -- Whoa!  That hurt!  Well done, gal! -- Shelley Ann

M. Chardinee and Khalhum's Dwarf -- Thanks for the fine send-off. -- LP Earl,
retired, and LP Mildred Leona, retired

Health, Humility, Honor, and Thanksgiving! -- Fandil The Wise

Fandil -- Indeed, you had cause for pride.  But remember that pride, or as it might
be a haughty spirit, goes before a fall.  Be careful! -- Jorja

Monsignor Mark -- True, so long as you keep your sword sharp, too. -- Marci Foote

We congratulate W. D. Purdy. -- Jorja and the Bluvalley Warriors

Monsignor Mark -- As you see, prayer ALONE is not enough. -- Lila Deane

Shelley Ann -- Though not deliberate, that is an effective bloodfeud for Mingo Snee.
Not that he necessarily deserved it, he was a bit of... well, let's just say he
wasn't the best thing to come along.  But he shouldn't have had to leave so quickly.
-- Marci Foote

And 2-1 against some standbys.  How Ardivent's arena has fallen!

                        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!
