                             REPORT FROM WITHIN THE TOWER

     Welcome ANDORAK.  I, Olaf Modeen remember this place well.  Many the fights have 
I fought here.  The celebrations, the disappointments...  What's with G.I.I.L.?  She 
actually beat WRATHMEN XXV's DAEMYN, and walked away with 46 more points from the 
fight.  Major screwup at WRATHMEN XXV.  DAEMYN lost 38 points to G.I.I.L..  Some new 
strategies, perhaps?  Maybe DAEMYN will provide more easy wins...  VIRGINIA'S SECRET 
was reminded on the sands why BARBARIAN is Duelmaster.  Wouldn't it be nice to have 
live subjects to practice on?  I hear some team is looking into the uses of convicted 
prisoners.   
     Speaking of cowardly avoiders and unfair challenges...   
     Warriors of ANDORAK unite.  You have only your games to lose!  Here's some 
advice:  study your opponent, master many skills, fight dirty.   
     Well, I'm pretty much through.  You guys need to get back practicing.  The end 
of another Spyreport!  That's cause for celebration in my book!  Remember--a good 
fighter needs both good skills and good luck.  Until next time,-- Olaf Modeen

                              NEW NOVEL:  "BLOOD GAMES"

Hail Gladiatorial Managers of Alastari,

     My name is Mark G. Manley, AKA Grimwood, author of the Duel 2 novel, "Dark 
Arena."  The RSI staff and I are pleased to announce the next novel in the Duel 2 
reality, "Blood Games."  A publisher has offered a contract to publish the novel and 
I'll continue to provide detailed updates as they become available.  However, I wanted 
to share a quick blurb about the novel.

                                        * * *

     WAR!
     The land of Alastari is thrown into chaos caused by the invasion of the Rirorni 
horde.  Swept up in the conflict and captured is My-re, a young girl living on the 
edge of the Rirorni plains.  Regarded as a spoil of war and growing up in a Rirorni 
family band, her troubles just begin as warlords within the Rirorni Empire fight each 
other for prestige, property, and personal honor.  For mutual protection, My-re is 
taught the family band's Wall of Steel combat style, where if executed correctly, no 
blade, no weapon, no arrow can penetrate.
     In a land where life is dangerous, brutal, and short, My-re is confronted by a 
prominent Rirorni warrior and kills him in self-defense.  She is sold to a Rirorni 
slaver after being found guilty of murder, and exiled back to her native land of 
Alastari.  However, there is no happy reunion, no joyful return, as she is sentenced 
to fight in the Blood Games arena for her crime.
     My-re's one chance of freedom resides in winning the Blood Game tournament.  But 
the champion is not declared by besting your opponents, but by slaughtering them.

                                        * * *

     As with novel "Dark Arena," I worked with RSI to write and publish "Blood Games" 
in the Duel 2 world of Alastari.  But it will always be known as Duelmasters to me.
     I wanted to share a little bit of background about myself, I started my first 
team back on turn 12 in Niania (Arena #2) on February 13, 1990.  I managed a team 
called Wolverines.  The next summer at Gen Con, I started my main team, Skull Squadron 
in Rocanis (Arena #56).  The following summer at Gen Con, I stared Legion of Death, in 
Valamantis (Arena #62).  Twenty-five years later, I've graduated numerous warriors, 
which would not be an easy feat to count.
     Good luck on the arena sands and more to come.

                                          -- Mark G. Manley
