                             Notes from the arena champ.

     What's unbelievable is that it took me NINE MINUTES to put down that stupid
Assassin.

                                    Naefan Ordh

                                      SPY REPORT

     Well, what are you looking at, DRAGONHEAD?  Ain't you never seen Snide Clemens 
before?  Ah, shaddup and listen to my news.  If this keeps up, KIWI CONNECTION 12, 
you'll have to shine swords instead of use them.  A drop of 6 in the rankings?  
MIDDLE WAY 9 turned their 2-3-0 turn into a 3rd place rank in the listings this turn. 
Any better than this, and you get put on hit lists.  Gee, I'm impressed, a 3-0-0 is 
nice, but don't get cocky, BASH BROS MICROSOFT, the Fates teach humility, and the 
Fates are proud.  Of course, we're all terribly impressed to see MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT 
win a fight and gain 21 points, terribly.  Tsk, tsk, BLACK HOLE SUN beat ANOTHER 
PROBLEM and ANOTHER PROBLEM lost 11 points.  You're breakin' my heart.  And if 
variety is the spice of life, DRAGONHEAD may be getting bland, as NAEFAN ORDH stays 
top dog in the city.  I'm not in a very good mood today, but why am I telling you 
this?  You want to know what's new, don't you, DRAGONHEAD?   
     My mother always told me, 'If you don't have anything nice to say, start 
talking.' I loved that woman.  DRAGONHEAD, I am losing what little hope I had in you. 
ONE MAN BAND the most avoided team?  What insult will suffice, I cannot say.  And it 
looks like BASH BROS LAWYER avoided them the most this turn.  What a pack of would be 
losers, if you ask me.  Hmph.  Ooh, I'm frightfully impressed, QUANTUM HICCUP was 
this turn's most challenged warrior.  Watch that ego swell, sports fans.  I notice 
BLOATWARE challenging down 23 points to fight QUANTUM HICCUP, BASH BROS MICROSOFT 
doubtless has some rotten excuse for such an insult to honor.  And golly gee, 
BLOATWARE beat QUANTUM HICCUP.  Aren't we all surprised and impressed?   
     Ah, now we come to my favorite part, where we see all the guys who are dead and 
gone, and get to see if their team cared.  Nipped in the bud, you might say, was 
INVITES HIS FRIENDS of BASH BROS MOUSE this turn.  Course, I wouldn't say that, so 
much as have a belly laugh.  Heh heh.  Titanium shields and bamboo daggers, guess 
what brave team is developing these kinds of weapons?   
     There's got to be a better place in DRAGONHEAD to get a drink than The Warty 
Toad!  Any suggestions?  Well, I've had enough of this drivel, and I'm sure you have 
too.  Off like a dirty shirt of padded leather.  Paste this one in your scrapbooks, 
you'll need the kindling come this winter-- Snide Clemens

                        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!
