                             Notes from the arena champ.

     It's a fine season for fighting--yes, indeed.  The fates have been kind to me,
helping the powers that be decide that I am worthy--I shall put that to the test in a
night fight.  Hopefully I shall travel to the Isle in style, or at least a nice box.
Best of luck to all--less it's vs. the Inconsistent Fury. -- Manza Wiggles

                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of ROCANIS!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp 
Eyes, Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  Former top team MIDDLE WAY 20 was 
unseated this week as INCONSISTENT FURY moved up from 2nd ranking to take the top 
spot with a 4-1-1 record for the round.  My praise to MEN OF STEEL for their 3-1-1 
week this time out.  Indeed, it was a skillfully fought round deserving of notice!  
LEELAYLA NORIN caught the eye of many in the gladiatorial commission as she 
skillfully bested ROCANI TURNCOAT and was awarded 17 points in recognition.  In one 
of the week's more notable duels, POW! put down ELISE GOUDGE, causing her to lose 17 
points of recognition in the process.  Not for nothing has RATHNOK MULROOT in the 
past laid claim to the Duelmaster's throne, and this week he's proven his combat 
skill yet again.  Would you believe that over half of the old women in ROCANIS seem 
to feel that they could fight better than you gladiators?   
     But come now, let us look deeper into the maze of contention and crossed blades 
that is city ROCANIS.  ROCANIS, city of gladiators!  Mighty among the names of thy 
guilds is INCONSISTENT FURY, a guild shunned and avoided by many in the weekly duels. 
Apparently the stalwarts of THEM are catching the bulk of jests down at the 
challenging board for their large share of the avoids.   
     Vendettas.  Bloodied blades and broken spears.  Indeed the city has seen more 
than its fair share of red in recent times.  Dark alleys may hide both secrets and 
assassins.  In the arena there is only the brightness of steel.  Keep vigil always!   
     The girls are as pretty in ROCANIS as ever I remembered them....and the fighters 
as ugly!  Don't let your reputation slip!  Sadly warriors, now longer can I keep thy 
company nor savor the ale of thy fine city.  Depart I must and soon!  Till we meet 
again, remember:  a turtle walks slow, hides head in a shell, and harms no one; a 
lion runs to slay its prey.-- Zontani Sharp Eyes

Mr. Hooler -- You're beginning to make me look not so bad--lucky I know better. --
Rathrok Mulroot

Whomp -- A bit of an overmatch, surprised I survived.  Let's not do it again--the
fighting part, anyways.  The surving part I hope to repeat as much as possible. --
Linkin Logger

Ghost of Aal -- Who was Anl?  I feel like I'm missing something and now I'll never
know--this is a dangerous job, especially on work day. -- Tam Tam Ka'blam

Calis -- I'm slow as a plant.  How did you not go first?  BTW, SC turned out to be
fav--I used it every match--very fortunate, I'd say.  Size 17, deftness 21 AB,
survivability isn't a nice probability. -- Manza Wiggles

Kulgan -- I feel our learns should have been reversed, yet what is, is what is.
Style-wise, I'm surprised I took home the victory.  See you next cycle. -- Tiki
La'Bane

Hmm, we didn't have very many tourney participants, but we salute them all. -- Jorja
and the Middle Way

The Kung-Fu Master was easy today.  I think he was cold.  He had icicles in his
beard. -- Dobie Frome

Obviously, Dobie warmed him right up.  Ouch. -- Chebob Erle

I couldn't let the Kung-Fusiot walk away a winner, could I? -- Forlis Hooler

Did you see what the Rocani Turncoat HAD inside that coat?  Words fail me. --
Leelayla Norin

Whomp -- I took that as an instruction. -- Elise Goudge

                        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!
