                                 THE GUARDIAN'S FORUM
                         Reflections by the Chief Tower Guard

     Meow!  All right!  Tower Guardian!  Me, Tabby, Tower Guardian!  It has a ring to
it, doesn't it?  I have worked long and hard to get here, from my days as a clumsy
rookie, despite the double twenty-ones, to now a polished (I hope) Tower Guardian.
     Think of it!  Which seems nicer?  A violating demonic fury or a fluffy orange
striped alley cat for Tower Guardian.  I mean, I use a specific litter area, but does
Violator?  I can relax for hours on a throne with pillows?  Can Violator?  And
Violator has a manager named Manager?  How crude is that?
     I have already left you with one clue to my character, and now for another.  How
many of my style are born with the statement "preferentially learns decisiveness"?
Is that cool and cat-like or what?
     So who will fight me next.  I am pretty sure I cannot win against Primus.
(Crip, you can hold him out one more month.  Wink.)  Ashar is not a style I am
interested in trying on for size.  That means Wynett or Mad Cat.  Doesn't Tabby
verses Mad Cat seem like a feline fever fit for fun?  (Get that!  Wow!  The
Alliterating Tabby.)
     Only time will tell.  Until then, I remain
          Tabby, Tower Guardian

                             REPORT FROM WITHIN THE TOWER

     This has been an amazing turn here:  fifty-seven fights!  Yes, okay, seventeen
of those fights involved standbys, but still, if no one looks closely, we could be
said to have wiped the floor with the regionals.  Well, even if they do look closely,
what the heck.  That's forty fights without standbys, eighty active gladiators plus
the seventeen that fought the Mimes, so, is ninety-seven active bodies on the sands
good, or what?  A significant part of this will be due to the return of Crip, and we
greet him with loud hossanahs.  And to tourney prep, since the tourney will be held
before we meet again here.

     But now, some details:  Obrojobo had the greatest point gain, 32 points, due to
defeating Amelia.  She, in turn, had the greatest drop, 24 points.
     Witless Wonders were most avoided by Sentinels.
     Thelonius got the most challenges.  I have no idea what he did with them.
     On which notes, we will leave Alarond the Scribe to take a sharp blade and shave
himself close, with luck, too closely, eh?  And we'll go on to the fights.
     Not that I'm going to talk about fifty-seven fights tonight or any other time.
That's just asking for the clerks to come after me and beat me with bales of paper.
So I'm going to check on the record for the standbys today, it being something that
stands out of the normal run of arena activity, and then cover the five challenge
matches.

LORD EXETER overpowered CAPTURED PIRATE KING in a popular 1 minute mismatched duel.
ADAM'S APPLE subdued ZORRO, THE GAY BLADE in a 3 minute fight.
PHILLIP THE BIRD was unbelievably bested by CLOTTO in a crowd pleasing 3 minute
melee.  First win for a standby, making them 1-2.
BASE ON BULLS was vanquished by CRYSALIS GUARD in a 2 minute brutal mismatched bout.
HARI-KARI handily defeated CLOTTO in a popular 2 minute gory uneven match.
DISCO QUEEN outlasted RIRORNI CAPTAIN in an exciting 7 minute struggle.
GROLSCH narrowly defeated TELGOR in a popular 3 minute gruesome bout.  2-5.  They
aren't doing so well, are they?  Not enough exercise.
BODDINGTON'S savagely defeated ARENAMASTER SANDAVOL in an action packed 3 minute
duel.
BEERVAHNA handily defeated VILLAINOUS INFORMER in a popular 1 minute one-sided duel.
LITTLE SIR GRUNGE overpowered ARENAMASTER SANDAVOL in a 2 minute one-sided duel.
DUTCH TREAT vanquished VERMICIOUS KNID in an action packed 3 minute one-sided match.
REMARK A BULL devastated CLOTTO in an exciting 2 minute brutal one-sided fight.
F.O.A.D. was vanquished by AMBER WOLFWALKER in a 1 minute one-sided fray.
FIGHTER ACE was defeated by CRYSALIS GUARD in a 2 minute struggle.
PRIMUS overcame GOJIRO in an action packed 2 minute fight.
TOTTI devastated VILLAINOUS INFORMER in an exciting 2 minute mismatched conflict.
BLACK JACK SHELACK was overcome by CRYSALIS GUARD in a 3 minute bout.
     I make it 5-12 for the standbys.  Not a good showing, they're getting lazy.

But now!  The challenges:
     OLIANDER (7-5911) (26-16-2,131) of SENTINELS challenged U.S.S. ARIZONA (34-2643)
(36-26-1,159) of D-DAY SQUAD.  Up 28.  OLIANDER slimly lost to U.S.S. ARIZONA in a
popular 3 minute Challenge duel.  If Oliander can challenge up that far and get a
"slim" loss, either he's too skinny, or he's good.
     BALDASSARE (7-6003) (22-9-0,126) of SENTINELS challenged EVALON ELKHORN (50-
3553) (31-25-3,139) of DRUID'S GROVE.  Up 13.  BALDASSARE savagely defeated EVALON
ELKHORN in an exciting 2 minute Challenge fight.  And Baldassare was looking very
good out there, besides being exciting.
     JAVELIN (82-33234) (14-5-0,176) of THE WEAPONS challenged STINGRAY (30-2264)
(34-29-0,187) of STEEL BLADES.  Up 11.  JAVELIN won victory over STINGRAY in a crowd
pleasing 3 minute Challenge brawl.  A javelin is a good weapon, a sort of short-
spear, yes?  I understand they throw them.  Good plan.
     VIOLATOR (44-2122) (52-41-1,192) of DEMONIC FURY challenged YOUNG JOAN (28-3534)
(39-43-1,198) of DODGE BULLETS.  Up 6.  VIOLATOR vanquished YOUNG JOAN in an exciting
3 minute gory uneven Challenge battle.  Ah, demons... dangerous creatures, demons.

For the title:
     TABBY (82-29373) (20-8-0,217) of FELINES challenged WYNETT (30-2340) (46-40-
2,215) of STEEL BLADES.  Down 2.  TABBY devastated WYNETT in a 1 minute mismatched
Challenge Title fight.  Good show, Tabby.  Congratulations.

                               PERSONAL CORRESPONDENCE

Violator and Mr. Manager -- It was my pleasure to dethrone you and perhaps hold you
both to your only Tower Guardian Crown ever.  I felt it only appropriate to fill in
for Crip and crew whom you expected. -- Tabby, Tower Guardian (Consortium affiliated)

     Such selfless friendship!

Thelonius -- I had such fun with you rolling around on the arena floor.  We put on
quite the show didn't we?  Those voyeurs! -- Whacking Willow

We are looking forward to the return of Crip's Crew.  The arena is not the same
without them. -- The Consortium Elders

Come on, now, guys.  This is an arena with a tradition of roleplaying and personals.
Write, write, write.  Right? -- Us Consortiumites

     "Or get someone to write for you," as Debby Tonte would say.

Stingray -- Why aren't you a Sea Dog?  Why aren't you out stinging rays?  Etc.  Good
fight, I do like it when I win, but you made a good effort considering your handicap.
-- Young Joan

Balliol Blackmoon -- I'm not a dragon, so back off with the bane stuff.  It just
makes me sneeze. -- Desperado

Baldassare -- I don't doubt it, but have you battled through more dangerous foes to
reach the latest batch of smash?  Aged three days!  Come try it. -- Billy Lilly

Gushan -- So much for your death match, eh? -- Amelia

Scarlet Rose -- I was hoping you'd be "silk," but it turns out you're "steel."  Oh,
well. -- Ghost Dancer

                        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!
