                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail and well met warriors of VALAMANTIS!  Know me for who I am, Zontani Sharp 
Eyes, Spymaster extraordinaire of all Alastari.  THE PLAGUE caught the eye of many in 
the gladiatorial commission as he skillfully bested MURDER FACE and was awarded 19 
points in recognition.  In one of the week's more notable duels, THE PLAGUE put down 
MURDER FACE, causing him to lose 16 points of recognition in the process.  Although 
JERANS LA'ROC made a valiant effort, it did not suffice to topple the reign of 
victorious DETONATOR.  No confirmation, but my sources claim that the top team has 
gained their position using magical aids.  Charmed weapons perhaps?   
     But come now, let us look deeper into the maze of contention and crossed blades 
that is city VALAMANTIS.  My inside sources tell me that the team to beat in 
VALAMANTIS these days is TOKEN ENTRY.  At least, most blades in town are looking to 
avoid them.  Apparently the stalwarts of DISASTERS are catching the bulk of jests 
down at the challenging board for their large share of the avoids.  Loose talk at the 
arena has reached my ears and it but confirms the knowledge that many fighters are 
after TOKI.  Watch your back!  A match that raised a few eyebrows at the games this 
week, it seems that LAND SLIDE posted a challenge against the more highly recognized 
TOKI.  The results, you ask?  Well, the firebrand LAND SLIDE subdued TOKI.  Remember 
warriors, this is the discipline of steel.   
     Is not Death a warrior's foremost adviser?   Warriors, may this counselor stand 
ready at your right hand forever!  Some say a warrior is judged by the way he bears 
arms.  One thing is sure, better a dagger in hand then a sword on the belt!   
     If it were not for my skills as a spy I would have been mugged three times 
already in VALAMANTIS.  Nice atmosphere you have here!  Sadly warriors, now longer 
can I keep thy company nor savor the ale of thy fine city.  Depart I must and soon!  
Till next we meet remember:  a fool flies into a rage quickly and often.  The wise 
are angered by the same thing only once.  Zontani Sharp Eyes

Detonator -- Well, at least you didn't blow my face off.  That would have been bad.
-- Jerans La'Roc

The Khalhums Dwarf seemed awfully angry.  But why take it out on me?  *I* wasn't the
one who persuaded the Commission that he is *not* a dwarf. -- JimEmma Loca
P.S.  I suppose it could be be the dwarf-orc thing.

Nathan -- Like you had a chance!  The handicapper must be mad at you. -- Fargo Hail

The Plague -- Had my vaccinations.  Ah... I thought you were a team in Kati-Tei? --

                        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!
