                                 DUELMASTER'S COLUMN
                             Notes from the arena champ.

     After that long DM column last time about me, I don't think I need to say much.
I am very pleased to be back for a sequel, but, then, as you now know, I have done an
awfully lot of sequels.
     I will tell you a few more things about The Durango Kid....
No 21's in the repertoire.
Two +4 bonuses for sure.
Skill learn rate of 2.07.
     Such is life behind the mask.
                 The Durango Kid

                                      SPY REPORT

     So why do I have this bag over my head?  Because I am The Unknown Spymaster and 
I'm going to give you a spy report!.  Hey everybody, watch out for BULLDOG, who flew 
up 14 points in the rankings after mashing GOBERT HINNY like a melon.  Keep your eye 
on this guy.  Ya know, some days it doesn't pay to walk out on the sands.  SHOBART 
TEEGUE was overcame by SMOKEY BEAR and drops 10 points.  Well, everybody's pal 
DURANGO KID moved his record to 15-4-1 by defeating NASTY NES in the Duelmaster's 
Title Bout and gaining 5 recognition points.  An apple a day keeps the doctor away, 
but an onion a day keeps T.P.s at bay.   
     Let's dig a little deeper into what's happening in the SNOWBOUND arena.  And 
hey, kiddies, those of you who didn't avoid PUBLIC ENEMY, please raise you hand.  
Wow.  Does SNOWBOUND really have that many liars?  Okay, so I may not be funny, but 
catch LIFE IMPACTS' act in the arena.  Those acrobats seem to be fairly deft at 
running from PUBLIC ENEMY.  Well dang howdy, but if challenges were votes, PURPLE ACE 
would be president.  Although it may be a contest he doesn't want to win.  In a 
touching display by a 'touched' warrior, PRESENTATION went after MOLDAR NAY, who was 
higher by 23 points.  Well, when the dust settled, PRESENTATION was defeated by 
MOLDAR NAY.   
     Remember that an arena is not always a safe place to be, but it is one of the 
most interesting, though!  Knowing when to use the right tactics at the proper time 
is a very important step on the road to Duelmaster.   
     I think I had better cut this one short.  It's been nice chatting to those of 
you whom I have not offended yet.  Okay, so I may not be the world's best comedian, 
but then you guys aren't the world's best warriors.  And remember, you can pick your 
friends and you can pick your--(loud boos), oh, you've heard that one already!-- The 
Unknown Spymaster

Bulldog -- Yes, but I wasn't done with that leg. -- Gobert Hinny, only having one leg
left to stand on

Durango Kid -- A dirty trick, sending your teammate last time to bite me up good (or
bad) and so make me easier meat.  Frustrating, too.  I would've liked to give you a
real fight, but so be it.  I couldn't get out of the way fast enough, and you one-
shotted me.  Embarrassing. -- Gobert Hinny

Smokey Bear -- You don't LISTEN.  Smoking is BAD for athletes!  It ruins your wind.
Makes you unable to last for a longer fight.  Give it up. -- Moldar Nay
P.S.  Besides, girls don't like to kiss guys who smoke, not unless they smoke, too.
My sister used to say that kissing a smoker was like licking out an ashtray.  Bleh.

Red Alert -- Why?  If a loser like me can defeat you, then you aren't so dangerous as
you want people to think. -- Ladiro Maels

Under the Gun -- Ah, I mis-heard the announcer.  I thought he said "under the SUN,"
and after the winter we've had, I got all excited.  Jumped up and down, waved my arms
around, stuff like that.  Turns out to be a good fighting strategy, huh? -- Shobart
Teegue

High Voltage -- This is some kind of plot to make me look bad to my teammates, isn't
it?  The only loss!  Rats. -- Elena Faresta

Public Enemy -- I shore are sorry ta have ta be the main cause o' y'alls 0-4.  I am.
Better luck next'n time. -- Smitty

Khalhums Dwarf -- You lucky dog!  I beat you last time, but you stuck it to me this
round.  <Grrrrrrr> -- Bulldog

Presentation, Threshpack. and Nasty Nes -- We were the lucky ones this time. -- Math,
Purple Ace, and 4-H -- Life Impacts all

Gobert Hinny -- You are one of my very favorites. -- Durango Kid DMII
