Still no salary increases for the coordinators.  Words are expensive!  We give up;
hence, you get the short and simple version.  So sad.  But, hey, M@MBO was HOT turn

                                      SPY REPORT

     It's me, The Unknown Spymaster, back to give you this week's Spy Report.  Sit 
back in your seats and we'll have more fun than a barrel of Zontanis.  Suffering 
under a 2-3-0 record and dropping from 7th to 19th place were the SECOND BANANAS.  
Keep trying!  A seasoned team is steady in the lists.  But to TEAM TOONS, which fell 
to 31st, it's what you soak in before going to the Dark Arena.  What goes up, must 
come down.  Watch out MAMBOLAND!  WEIRD ALCHEMY may fall on you as it crushes past 
the teams below it to fall on the 32nd spot.  Coming up with a solid 4-1-1 outing, 
ROYAL FLUSH has advanced 9 places in the rankings.  D.A. REJECTS is no joke as it 
posted a 5-0-0 week advancing from 11th place to 4th place.  And falling like a 
basher in the top ten was SUPERSIZE ME, who dropped 13 points after a disappointing 
(to say the least) bout with NUT BROWN.  Well here's a duelmaster that doesn't sit 
back and say 'Challenge me'!  WITCHCRAZE made a challenge against DING DONG this 
week.  Our battling duelmaster WITCHCRAZE has managed to hold the title, fending off 
DING DONG's none too subtle advances.  Better luck next time, LAND OF OZ.  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 MAMBOLAND arena.  Here's 
a song for you:  Who's afraid of the big, bad SERPENTS HOLD  200?  Big bad SERPENTS 
HOLD 200.  Big bad SERPENTS HOLD 200.  MAMBOLAND's afraid of the big bad SERPENTS 
HOLD 200.  Tra la la la la!  Okay, so I may not be funny, but catch SHEWISH BUFFET's 
act in the arena.  Those acrobats seem to be fairly deft at running from SERPENTS 
HOLD 200.  And who is this FLESH HUNTER you ask, with 101 points and a 16-2-0 record. 
Ooh, the tales I could tell!  In a mismatch, our friend ASTROTRAIN of DARQUE FORCES 
got heroic notions and challenged BIKINI ATOLL.  What did it get him?  A 21-10-0 
record, that's what.  To the crowd's chants of 'Bo-zo bo-zo bo-zo', BIKINI ATOLL was 
taken out by the lower-ranked ASTROTRAIN.  (Maybe it's time to think Dark Arena?).  
In a touching display by a 'touched' warrior, REBECCA went after EMERALD CITY, who 
was higher by 21 points.  Well, when the dust settled, REBECCA was put to death by 
EMERALD CITY.   
     Being a spy is great--other people die and you spend the rest of the day 
drinking to their memory.  Better tanked than dead!  CHICKEN A LA KING defied all 
odds and slew SUPER-SIZE ME in the Dark Arena.  The only ones displeased were the 
buzzards, as SUPER-SIZE ME's meat is notoriously tough.  Big deal, so MAGIC MIKE & 
IKE got mashed in the Dark Arena.  With his face he was more at home with the trolls

Yes, and another newbie bites the dust as 1958 B. LAYNE goes down under the sword of 
ZOMBIE ZULU.  Thanks to this, ZOMBIE ZULU now has 45 recognition points.  In the 
'Oops, What Have I Done?' category, ROGUE STACHE was mashed by LILITH, who let ROGUE 
STACHE know that killing members of CHEERS is a no-no.  Knowing when to use the right 
tactics at the proper time is a very important step on the road to Duelmaster.

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

                        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!
