                             Notes from the arena champ.

     A good try, Shadowfire, and since the rabbits darted in and back out again, it
was between us.  Naturally, I believe the best dog won.

                                      SPY REPORT

     Oh, hi.  Its just little 'ol Debby Tonte.  Thought I'd check out ARADI to see 
what's new.  MVP award for HUSH PUPPY?  RED DOG GANG's proud of him after beating 
MAXIMILLIAN KI and getting 22 points.  Talk about yer major upsets!  KISMET's match 
with DAWNBLADE cost her a loss of 5 points!  Our Duelmaster has lost, folks, lost to 
VETERAN MERCENARY, BUT BB BULLY BOY is still the Duelmaster because he has the most 
recognition points!  Is the Duelmaster really being a real snob to his teammates?  
Don't ask me!   
     AAARRGH!!!  I HATE SPYREPORTING!!!  Sorry.  I just had to say it.  Like, is 
CHIQUITA CHIWAWA popular, or what?  She was challenged the most in all of ARADI!  
She's got a 2-2-0, is that good?  Ooh!  Did WORLOCK really know what he was doing 
when he challenged GARM?  A 4-0-0 speaks volumes.  (Zontoni said that.  I don't know 
what it means.) WORLOCK was so studly out there in the sands!  Beating GARM and 
getting 31 points.  TWILIGHT BRIGADE must be proud, for sure!   
     Man, all these warriors dying and killing each other!  Don't you guys ever give 
it a break?  What if they had a fight and nobody showed up?  I'd be out of a job, 
that's what!!!   
     I really didn't, you know, study when I was a kid.  Who would've guessed I'd be 
a famous Spyreporter?  I know how much you like reading this stuff, but I really 
should stop.  Its been really albendranius!  Later, guys-- Debby Tonte

Cinder -- I don't like fighting you.  You're too... gritty, I guess.  You hurt my
teeth. -- Chiquita Chiwawa

A Visting Orc?  He'll not visit MY house! -- Garm

Maximillian Ki -- Listen, drop the frisbee, dude!  It isn't like it was doing you any
good, and it might've been getting in your way. -- Ready Eddie

Kismet -- Does that mean it's my fate to be hushed? -- Hush Puppy

Godric -- You recently asked about what I feed my gladiators. well, just let me tell
you, dinner time at the Twilight Brigade guildhouse is very trying on the cook.
Shadowfire and Cinder both want seafood.  Dawnblade is trying to be a vegetarian, but
I think he sneaks a steak when he thinks no on is watching.  Trauma Hound will eat
anything you put in front of him.  Salad, pasta, meat and potatoes, I don't think he
cares.  It's Warlock that gives the cook fits.  She's a nice old lady who thinks
everyone should have a balanced diet.  The only thing I've ever seen Warlock eat is
meat and he prefers it very, very rare. -- Stronghold

     Should I put "Stronghold" as the manager name for this team?

Godric -- My sources in Veastian and Chimlevtal tell me that your gladiators have
recently held the thrones in those cities.  Congratulations, I'm sure it's well
deserved. -- Stronghold

BB Bully Boy -- That's twice you've beaten me in what turned out to be the title
fight. -- Shadowfire

Chiquita Chihuahua -- I understand that smaller dogs have to work harder.  Do you
understand that when you bite you have to get smacked on the nose with a rolled up
newspaper? -- Cinder

Sai Jin -- Nice fight.  Let's try that one again. -- Dawnblade

BB Bullyboy and Spot  -- Congrats on winning the DM spot. -- Stronghold and Twilight
Brigade

                        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!
