                                      SPY REPORT

     Much has changed in DWES EG since last I was here.  Never fear, Olaf Modeen 
adapts to many situations, as do all successful fighters.  You know what they say 
about the herd of lions who studied a judge...  LAMENTATION moved up 11 places, to 
6th.  Who can explain it?  Not you, not me, not R AND D's opponents, after watching 
them shoot up the ranks from 19th to 7th.  You know what they say about the herd of 
lions who studied a judge...  BRAIN FOOD 26 moved up 22 places, to 13th.  Who can 
explain it?  Not you, not me, not PLEAS' opponents, after watching them shoot up the 
ranks from 31st to 17th.  Looking for a good fight, confident, skilled, tough 
opponents.  Well don't look at THIRSTY THUGS 708, cause they dropped by 16.  Ever 
take one of those association tests?  You know, he says black, you say white.  
Water-Lake, Sky-Blue. Try this:  Flop.  11405G!  WEATHER bit the big one as they 
could not win.  They dropped from 18th down to 33rd!  Are you guy giving lessons or 
what?  You know what they say about the herd of lions who studied a judge...  
RESTRICTIONS moved up 12 places, to 34th.  It seems so recently people were saying 
ARCANE TREASURES was washed up, finished.  But 3-0-0 moved them up 2.  I guess 
they're washed no more...  What's with THAI CHILI?  He actually beat THIRSTY THUGS 
708's CARBOMB, and walked away with 27 more points from the fight.  Laughs were big 
at HARVEST DAY while they watched THAI CHILI clobber CARBOMB.  He lost 23 points and 
got bruised from objects thrown from the stands.  Apparently DWES EG isn't filled 
with as many gutless wonders as I thought.  The Dreaded Duelmaster got 2 challenges 
this turn!  I'm sure DWES EG is excited about TOY HORSEY, the new Duelmaster from 
ARCANE TREASURES.  (remember?)  But when you've seen as many as I have...  I suppose 
you want to hear some rumors and dirty gossip about your fellow fighters?  Tough!   
     If at first you don't succeed, avoid.  That'll get you in the Spyreports.   
     A fighter's lot is filled with strife, revenge, and killing.  Some fighters 
don't accept this.  The best do.  How long have I been here?  I got people to see, 
places to go...   
     Many other cities have retirement homes for aged warriors.  Any plans here?  Are 
you as tired of reading this as I am of writing it?  Actually, I guess I'm writing it 
before you read it.  Oh, well.  Time for my medication, so I'll leave now.  Practice, 
practice, practice!-- Olaf Modeen

                        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!
