                    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.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Much has changed in FRATSFA since last I was here.  Never fear, Olaf Modeen 
adapts to many situations, as do all successful fighters.  Biff!  Pow!  FRATSFA 
watched with glee as PYROMANIA got knocked off top spot by DRAGONS GUARD II!  Hmmmph! 
I always thought PYROMANIA was an over-rated team and they proved it with a 1-4-0!  
DRAGONS GUARD II showed FRATSFA what they were made of as they fought with a 
vengeance to walk off with 4-1-0.  What's with TORTURING TULIP?  She actually beat 
BLOOD AND GUTS!'s TWO, and walked away with 19 more points from the fight.  Major 
screwup at PYROMANIA.  451 DEGREES lost 12 points to CONFLICT.  Some new strategies, 
perhaps?  Maybe 451 DEGREES will provide more easy wins...  Try as he might, JOLLY 
ROGER wasn't good enough at persuading ZOUM LA BOUSE to step down from the 
Duelmaster's throne...  Advice to fighters with a 1 will--give up fighting!   
     If at first you don't succeed, avoid.  That'll get you in the Spyreports.  The 
most avoided team was SEA DOGS.  The bums at DRAGONS GUARD II couldn't face the 
challenges from SEA DOGS!  No excuse for that!  What do people see in 451 DEGREES?  
His 11-6-0?  PYROMANIA ain't talkin', but he's got 49 points.  DESPAIR didn't quite 
know what to make of a challenge it received from GLOATING GARDENIA of FLOWER GIRLS, 
who is 22 points below it.  GLOATING GARDENIA perhaps got hers just desserts, seeing 
as she was defeated by DESPAIR and ended up with 66 recognition points.   
     A fighter's lot is filled with strife, revenge, and killing.  Some fighters 
don't accept this.  The best do.  KITIARA was plum wore out after ANASTRIANNA pounded 
'im silly in a Bloodfeud.  DRAGONS GUARD II'll have to get a little better before 
going after ANASTRIANNA again!  Many a warrior has met his fate in a hungover stupor. 
You young rapscallions, take note!   
     Well, I'm pretty much through.  You guys need to get back practicing.  All work 
and no play makes Olaf a dull fighter.  Work and play no fighter dull Olaf.  
Olaffighterwork and no play.  I don't want to overstay my welcome...-- Olaf Modeen

Zoum La Bouse, full of Blood and Guts, but a fine champion.  My girls all WANT you.
-- Lady Fern

Dragon Guard, nice point gain.  It feels like you got it all against us!  Now my gals
want to make all your warriors beg for mercy.  Yes!  How many of them can make it
three times a night? -- Lady Fern

Fratsfa Quest?  What Fratsfa Quest? -- Lady Fern

Despair, yeah, I'm feeling despair.  I never could get a good grip on your weapon,
you know?  Now I really WANT you. -- Gloating Gardenia

Onyx, I'd say wham, bam, thank you ma'am, but....  Indeed, I will say wham, bam,
thank you ma'am. (giggle) -- Savage Snowball

Two, you win the battle of the Ts.  I had fun. -- Torturing Tulip

Anastrianna, girls just wanna have fun, don't they?  And you had the most. -- Caustic
Crocus

Poor ole Devlish Dahlia.  Kitiara challenged her, killed her, and raped her of
skills.  (Nice adex, Kitiara.)  I guess I will have to do something about it, even
though "it" was not much at 17-13-10-15-8-10-11 (- attack, good damage, norm end).
But what shall I do? -- Lady Fern

All my gals hope you did well in The Mailer.  Come on over to The Flower Shoppe to
celebrate your wins. -- Lady Fern

Here we are!  Back from the tournament and alive!  After the miraculous Ftf, reality
struck the untimed adventurers...  Two pulled one poor victory, wasn't able to finish
his fights.  Victory Program made a mockery of his name with one victory.  Arepolite
struggled to reach turn 5.  The only one improving is Champ Chump... 3-3, 4-3, 5-3
now... that one can seriously dream about a 6-3 in a few months! -- Le Pentarque

Torturing Tulip -- I guess I can give you what you like... -- Two

We had enough of the Onyx/Conflict guys... please hit someone else. -- Champ Chump
and Areopolite

Always a pleasure to fight 451 Degrees.  I must have a word with my blacksmith,
though. -- Areopolite

Areopolite -- I came, I saw, it was hot!!! -- 451 Degrees

Gangway -- Needless to say, there was no dancing after our fight. -- Disco Inferno

Sir Breuse -- No where's a good zippo when you need one... -- Lighter Fluid

Crow's Nest Guy -- /shakes head in disappointment/ -- Tuscan Flame
