                             Notes from the arena champ.

All hail Rocanis, Greatest arena in all the land.  First off I must thank Melinda
Chase for letting me win that last one.  Mucho thankx.  Best of luck to all less ibg
us an I.F. member Ryms Vellemaur!

                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, ROCANIS?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  Later days, MIDDLE WAY 20, since 
INCONSISTENT FURY took top team from you this turn, you guys are old news.  Of 
course, we're all terribly impressed to see MODREFT MEGLEEN win a fight and gain 16 
points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, OPAL beat SMASH and SMASH lost 14 points.  You're 
breakin' my heart.  And if variety is the spice of life, ROCANIS may be getting 
bland, as RYVAS VOLKMAURI stays top dog in the city.  The Grub & Rub Bar and Bistro, 
humph!  I've tasted better ale at mortuaries.  Where do they get this stuff?  From 
ROCANIS' trash dumps?   
     He who fights and runs away will live to fight another day, the coward.  
ROCANIS, I am losing what little hope I had in you.  INCONSISTENT FURY the most 
avoided team?  What insult will suffice, I cannot say.  And who led the way in this 
mass act of cowardice?  Let's see, well, whatcha know?  It was ON THE ROCKS.  Ha ha 
ha ha!  NICKOLI DRYBONE was challenged more times this turn than the Duelmaster.  Now 
was the DM insulted or feared?  Heh, heh.  Looks like time for laurels or hemlock, 
NICKOLI DRYBONE was challenged by RUBY, who was ranked 27 points below him.  And The 
Grub & Rub Bar and Bistro has banned NICKOLI DRYBONE from service until next turn for 
losing to RUBY and giving her 26 points in the process!  Ha!   
     Death and Taxes.  The less death I see, the more it taxes my patience.  Let's 
see if anyone's dead or dying.  Honor is like a chainmail shirt, it only shines 
through use.  Certain nameless cowards will doubtless rebuke me on this one.   
     I was about to buy a new quill pen the other day, but some fighter took it for 
an epee.  Forgive me for writing with a dagger.  Phlllt!  Just had to do that before 
I leave the fine city of ROCANIS.  I feel much better now.  Glad to see the back of 
this place-- Snide Clemens

Forlis Hooler -- Now, that's a match-up I can live with. -- Ruby

Gilpar Ibbins -- Now, that's a match-up I can pass on. -- Agate

Ieza von Draka -- Who won?  I sure feel like I lost. -- Opal (now showing the same
color variations as the gemstone he was named after)

All -- My name is Bartender and I manage the team On the Rocks.  The team was first
intended as a tourney team but they didn't do too well in the tourneys so I'm giving
up on that. -- Bartender, mgr On the Rocks

     Glad to have you here.

P. Begger -- Zoink. -- Oixie Doo

Opal -- Cruds!  Somehow I feel I got Robbed. -- Ieza Van' Draka

Erbin Geetz -- Blast, if I had any skin that wouldn't have hurt. -- Nickeli Drybone

Debra Farin -- That was a close one.  But I should do better next time.  Thanks for
the win. -- Mooloeth Megleen

Ryvas Volkmauri -- Thank you!  I know "they" say holding the title is good, but it
made me deeply uneasy.  I wasn't sure what was expected of me outside the arena, you
see.  I hate that kind of feeling. -- Abelinda Chase

Modreft Megleen -- It appears that you are, as the saying goes, "getting your feet
under you."  Those sayings are so often confusing.  Where else would your feet be? --
Debra Farin

Nickoli Drybone -- I don't know how you can keep it dry in this weather.  Rain, rain,
and again rain.  Flash flood warnings.  Rain.  General flood warnings.  Rain with
hail, high wind warnings.  Rain.  More rain.  Ugh.  I'm glad I'm not a farmer. --
Erbin Goetz

Ruby -- That's quite a rock! -- Forlis Hooler

Agate -- Actually, I didn't "calculate" that last attack, I was trying to control my
sword, which had become possessed of a spirit of malevolence.  Disconcerting. --

                        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!
