                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Six months ago I was lying in a grave while the worms frolicked through my
nostrils and down my throat.  Now I'm sitting on top of this fine arena and the
perfume of dancing wenches and cheap ale have replaced the night crawlers.  What a
change!  I'm done fighting until I'm shipped off to some place called Chiraq, or
maybe it's called Chicago.  Either way I'm out of here.  One of those bash bros will
have the seat next time.

Kid Funky Fried

                                      SPY REPORT

     Hail DRAGONHEAD!  Warriors of the arena, prepare to be praised and blamed for 
your deeds.  BASH BROS SPRING stable has parlayed this turn's 2-0-0 into a 7 space 
move up the rankings.  This brings them up to 4th place.  Good work, guys!  And let's 
see, CAVITY fought DANGEROUS CRIMINAL and gained 24 points and contributed to BASH 
BROS CANDY's 3-0-0.  POOR SIGNAL STRENGTH has lost to AMBITIOUS GUARD, falling 15 
points, while helping make BASH BROS CABLE a 1-2-0 turn.  Due to his absence and 
inability to defend the throne, KID FUNKY FRIED has lost the title of Duelmaster.  
And all eyes were on RUTABAGA this turn as he ascended to the throne of Duelmaster.  
DRAGONHEAD has a new victor!  Can someone confirm a rumor for me?  I hear the top 
team makes their losing fighters do dishes at The Dripping Blade until they win.  
Maybe?   
     He who challenges well, fights well.  He who avoids without cause, shall lose 
for good reasons.  My mama told me that one.   
     We only live a short time in this world, so why not take a sharp blade, and 
shave it close?  VIRUS must have surprised BASH BROS MICROSOFT this turn, after they 
sent him to the Dark Arena, but the Dark Arena couldn't hold him!  A brave warrior 
does not carry a red shield, he has nothing to cover or hide when the fight is over.  
Consider well.   
     Thought for the day, a new sword shines bright, but the notched sword sings the 
sweetest.  Well, I'm burning daylight here in DRAGONHEAD and I've a long road ahead 
of me.  Happy Trails.  Until the sun next rises and my pen sets to paper-- Alarond 
the Scribe

Vardon Weiss -- You didn't seem yourself, but perhaps it was too early in the
morning. -- 8 AM Class

Purvis Quail -- When you gotta go.... -- Potty Break

want to stop a train, you need to only one thing. -- Derailed

Twenty-eight deaths in the arena today!  The city could perish several times over.
Would we notice?

There's practically nobody here but Bash Brothers.  Weird.  And a lot of standbys,
none of whom fought US.  Dammit.

Our congratulations and a hasty farewell to Virus. -- Jorja and those who walk the
Middle Way

Book Lost -- My dog ate it. -- Rupert Sams

PPV -- I fell asleep, and I am NOT going to pay for it. -- Rupert Sams

8 am class -- You're JOKING! -- Vardon Weiss

Potty Break -- Some "rest stops" are not worth it.  I remember one, the people in
charge of it should have been hanged, with escalating penalties if they didn't clean
the place up. -- Purvis Quail

Free Trial -- Oh, right, that's like a free lunch, isn't it? -- Tom Underwood

Corn Flakes -- Huh, I *knew* that wasn't going to be good for me.  Soggy in the first
three seconds.  Bleh. -- Ghost of Zilla Yancy

                        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:

  FTF-Style (DM 98):      for Face-to-Face attendees, with turn-by-turn strategies
  Mail-in-Style (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 are 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 the FTF-style bloodgames, there are no regular 
challenges, only bloodfeuds.  For the Mail-in arena, warriors may not change their 
strategy from round to round (to make it fair for those who could not attend the 
FTF).  There will be no DA challenges in either arena.

TURN PROCESSING AND DUE DATES -- If you are not attending the FTF, we must have your 
rollups and strategies by the Wednesday before the FTF, 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 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 ADM.  Astute managers will note that this means that 
three warriors that are designed from scratch will survive the Bloodgames, win one of 
the top three places, and go on to immortal glory!  One of those warriors 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!
