     Welcome BLACKSTONE.  I, Olaf Modeen remember this place well.  Many the fights 
have I fought here.  The celebrations, the disappointments...  You know what they say 
about the herd of lions who studied a judge...  HE'S SUPER FREAKY moved up 30 places, 
to 9th.  Who can explain it?  Not you, not me, not 011609J's opponents, after 
watching them shoot up the ranks from 33rd to 10th.  You know what they say about the 
herd of lions who studied a judge...  KEEP YOU GUESSING moved up 23 places, to 11th.  
Who can explain it?  Not you, not me, not MISISTERS OF DEFENSE's opponents, after 
watching them shoot up the ranks from 30th to 12th.  You know what they say about the 
herd of lions who studied a judge...  MY HOMETOWN moved up 22 places, to 14th.  Who 
can explain it?  Not you, not me, not 011510M's opponents, after watching them shoot 
up the ranks from 50th to 15th.  You know what they say about the herd of lions who 
studied a judge...  FLASHBACK! moved up 36 places, to 16th.  Who can explain it?  Not 
you, not me, not WITTY COMEBACK's opponents, after watching them shoot up the ranks 
from 59th to 18th.  You know what they say about the herd of lions who studied a 
judge...  DUNGEON CELL 07 moved up 46 places, to 19th.  Looking for a good fight, 
confident, skilled, tough opponents.  Well don't look at STREET WALKERS 2, cause they 
dropped by 11.  BLACK OPS bit the big one as they could not win.  They dropped from 
15th down to 42nd!  Are you guy giving lessons or what?  Who can explain it?  Not 
you, not me, not DUNGEON CELL 39's opponents, after watching them shoot up the ranks 
from 90th to 43rd.  You know what they say about the herd of lions who studied a 
judge...  DUNGEON CELL 50 moved up 34 places, to 45th.  Who can explain it?  Not you, 
not me, not MY TEEN YEARS' opponents, after watching them shoot up the ranks from 
83rd to 47th.  You know what they say about the herd of lions who studied a judge...  
SECRET TRYSTS moved up 34 places, to 51st.  Who can explain it?  Not you, not me, not 
IDIOMS' opponents, after watching them shoot up the ranks from 80th to 52nd.  Ever 
take one of those association tests?  You know, he says black, you say white.  
Water-Lake, Sky-Blue. Try this:  Flop.  WHYILOVEGOLF!  You know what they say about 
the herd of lions who studied a judge...  SERPENTS HOLD 6 moved up 14 places, to 
59th.  STREET WALKERS bit the big one as they could not win.  They dropped from 48th 
down to 61st!  Are you guy giving lessons or what?  Looking for a good fight, 
confident, skilled, tough opponents.  Well don't look at 072909M, cause they dropped 
by 15.  Who can explain it?  Not you, not me, not FORMER BOSSES' opponents, after 
watching them shoot up the ranks from 92nd to 77th.  What's with ROAD KILL?  He 
actually beat DRAGON'S GUARD V's DIRVISH, and walked away with 63 more points from 
the fight.  Laughs were big at MY HOMETOWN while they watched SPUNKY PUDDLE clobber 
DOCTOR STRANGE.  He lost 11 points and got bruised from objects thrown from the 
stands.  LORD OF COLLUSION was reminded on the sands why VODKA GIMLET is Duelmaster.  
Advice to fighters with a 1 will--give up fighting!   
     No matter the time or place, men will always duel.  The most avoided team was MY 
HOMETOWN.  In my day, no team with a 5-3-0 would scare me off!  What's the problem, 
ONE HIT WONDERS?  How well I know the feeling of being the most challenged warrior, 
ZESTFUL FLATTERY!  Don't make idle boasts, they may come back to haunt you.  PRISONER 
075 didn't quite know what to make of a challenge he received from CART GIRLS of 
WHYILOVEGOLF, who is 25 points below him.  CART GIRLS perhaps got hers just desserts, 
seeing as she was overcame by PRISONER 075 and ended up with 74 recognition points.  
I hate going to the effort of writing about the kind of fights that SMITHERS gets in. 
He fights people like PRISONER 431, 15 points below.  I thought SMITHERS showed great 
skill and promise when he overcame PRISONER 431.  All right, so I slept through it!  
Big deal!   
     A fighter's lot is filled with strife, revenge, and killing.  Some fighters 
don't accept this.  The best do.  Is it my imagination, or are fighters getting 
younger every day?  To die so young, so gloriously!   
     Many other cities have retirement homes for aged warriors.  Any plans here?  All 
work and no play makes Olaf a dull fighter.  Work and play no fighter dull Olaf.  
Olaffighterwork and no play.  Remember--a good fighter needs both good skills and 
good luck.  Until next time,-- 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:

     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!
