                                      SPY REPORT

     Greetings, Warriors of DWES EG.  Allow this humble servant Novgorodny Vir to 
give you a respite from the fights in the form of this Spyreport.  Managers were 
muttering after SHORT BUT DEADLY showed DWES EG what they could do:  1-0-0 to move up 
by 16.  Perhaps it is SUPERIOR FORCES 1405 members' intannibility that enabled them 
to move from 35th to 18th last week...  (Less time in the sun...) Like a chunk of 
francium heaved into a wet pond, WORLDSPAN 16 blew up the rankings to 17!  Managers 
were muttering after NOTHING BUT DIP showed DWES EG what they could do:  1-1-0 to 
move up by 19.  Rumor has it an incurable disease has swept the stable of STREET 
WALKERS 5.  Note their drop in the rankings from 30th to 49th.  Watch out!!!  
Thinking about sending their team manager to the Dark Arena is STREET WALKERS 10, 
after suffering a 19 drop in ranking.  The boys at FLYING DINGOS 17 aren't the 
happy-go-lucky bunch we all know and love, after suffering a 18 drop last week.  
Thinking about sending their team manager to the Dark Arena is STRANGE SAINTS, after 
suffering a 20 drop in ranking.  Rumor has it an incurable disease has swept the 
stable of ENIGMA 6.  Note their drop in the rankings from 36th to 55th.  Watch out!!! 
Thinking about sending their team manager to the Dark Arena is STREET WALKERS 9, 
after suffering a 13 drop in ranking.  Practice pays for MATRIX, who pummelled TUBA, 
to pocket 39 points.  THE WILLBURY certainly had a baffled expression on his face, 
after losing to ELEPHANT and losing 13 points in the process!  CURIOUS GEORGE 
successfully staved off a grab for the roses by VETERAN MERCENARY of DWES EG.  Does 
DWES EG have no one talented enough to dethrone him?  So who was the warrior seen 
charging into immovable walls and challenging dead trees?  Someone's got a basic 
problem...   
     And how sociable are DWES EG's warriors?  Come, let us see.  To quell some nasty 
rumors, the guys in WORLDSPAN 15 are not carrying any incurable diseases.  No need to 
avoid 'em.  Like a pup with its tail between its legs, SHORT BUT DEADLY scurried away 
from WORLDSPAN 15.  Oh, the shame!  Is it charming personality?  Conversational 
abilities?  Good oral hygiene?  Whatever it is, LAME DWAYNE is the most challenged 
warrior.   
     Is there life after death?  Pragmatics (and warriors) know there is death after 
life!  Ask not for whom the sword slashes; it slashes for thee.   
     All good things must come to an end.  As if buffeted by forces of nature beyond 
my control, I must take my leave of this place.  DWES EG, I leave you now.  The 
Duelmaster has agreed to foot my bill at The Swinging Aardvark.  'Til next time-- 
Novgorodny Vir

                        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!
