                             Notes from the arena champ.

     Well, I did it!  I did it all!  A win for my fourth Duelmaster Title.  I think
the title of Durango Kid DMIV has quite the ring to it; don't you?  A win to get my
twentieth arena fight and Lord Protector status.  And I think LP Durango Kid DMIV
sounds even better!
     For those whom are interested, here's my make up, and as you will see, it took
effort to get where I am:
   10-8-11-17-17-9-12 SL
   +4 Init and +4 Rip
   good damage; normal endu
   worked out and studded to 11-9-17-18-10-13 (still norm endu)
   nice skill learn rate of 2.13
   16-4-1 in arena; 3-3-0 in tournaments
   4 DM Titles
   Master Initiative, Expert Riposte (excludes recent fight)
   like a  variety of weapons
      6-26-2 LO
      3-10-1 BS
      2-39-1 HA
      1-7-0 SH
      1-37-0 SC
   Fave guess???  BS; high/low, learns init
     I hope that tells you something of value.  Nevertheless, I am on top.  Come and
get me for the final fight, unless Smitty sends me against the DA Monsters.  Next
stop, retirement and watching and rewatching all my old movies.  Can't wait!
               Lord Protector Durango Kid DMIV

                                      SPY REPORT

     I was going on vacation, see?  Surf, sun...  But what do those bums say?  "Hit 
the road, Debby Tonte.  SNOWBOUND needs a spyreport."  Oh, well.  MVP award for UNDER 
THE GUN?  DANGER DANGER's proud of her after beating THE USEROUS MERCHANT and getting 
21 points.  Talk about yer major upsets!  MOLDAR NAY's match with MATH cost him a 
loss of 4 points!  The Duelmaster isn't going to stop just cause he's Number One!  
NASTY NES knows this.  He was challenged by the Duelmaster.  Was that a tear I saw in 
NASTY NES' eye, as he took over Duelmastership?  And wasn't DURANGO KID fit to be 
tied!  Is the Duelmaster really being a real snob to his teammates?  Don't ask me!   
     Look, you guys stick to fighting, all right?  The warriors of PUBLIC ENEMY must 
be getting lonely.  They were the most avoided team.  Do you guys know something that 
I don't?  I don't know what LIFE IMPACTS' been doing.  They certainly haven't been 
accepting many fights from PUBLIC ENEMY, that's fer sher.  Can PUBLIC ENEMY's NASTY 
NES be more popular than me?  He was challenged the most, but is that really the 
same?   
     Challenges, revenges, Bloodfeuds.  All SNOWBOUND ever talks about is fighting!  
Me, I'm more laid back.  Fight, fight, fight.  Is that all you guys can do?   
     Remember, blood on a purple robe may stain.  Soak it in cold water, and hand 
wash.  I gotta leave.  SNOWBOUND is like such a dump, and you guys smell too much!  I 
had a fun time, see you later-- Debby Tonte

Treshpack -- I don't know where all this moxie comes from when I fight a highly
experienced warrior like you, but I surely will take it.  Luck conquers all?  Gooooo,
Aces! -- Purple Ace, Life Impacts

Convicted Assassin?!  What's he doing on my dance card?!  I showed him that we 4Hers
are not suck easy pluckin's, and that maybe he should just go back to jail. -- 4H,
Life Impacts

Nasty Nes -- You were simply too good, too skilled, too warrior-like for me.  Kudos.
-- Bulldog, Life Impacts

Pec Killer -- What a FINE spotlight!  Welcome back.  You may wish to access the DM
site at www DOT reality DOT com/dm to get lots of data and talk to us all more often.
And Smitty says he wishes he were 40 again.  (Or even 50)  Luck at you. -- The Life
Impact Publicist, Consortium affiliated

Moldar Nay -- I wasn't sure I could do it, but the numbers crunched just right. --
Math, Life Impacts

Gobert Hinny -- I fought at my very best.  Hasta la vista. -- Durango Kid, Life
Impacts

Pec -- Y'all done be top three-turner.  Yup.  Nice'n point gain, Bud. -- Smitty

Luck at y'all! -- Smitty and The Life Impacts

The Durango Kid's official favorites are: EP, HI/Vlo, Slash Tactic, Learns Parry --
The Life Impacts Publicist

Pec Killer -- Welcome back. -- Jorja, the Middle Way

Bulldog -- I was, ah... maybe a little tipsy. -- Gobert Hinny

Smitty -- Well, a person can't write thirty or forty personals a day, year in and
year out, without hitting a good one now and then. -- Jorja

We congratulate the Durango Kid. -- Jorja and the Middle Way

Durango Kid -- All well and good to congratulate you, which I do, most sincerely, but
fighting you is a different matter.  Ouch. -- Gobert Hinny

Math -- That's why I always deal cash.  If I have it in my hand, I can spend it, and
if I don't, no matter what the mathematicians say I *should* have, I don't spend it.
Those mathematicians are all Embezzling Scribes at heart anyway. -- Moldar Nay

Red Alert -- Ow!  That screech of alarm was such a shock that I bit my tongue. --
Ladiro Maels

High Voltage -- Rubber shoes. -- Shobart Teegue

Almost--ALMOST--I felt sorry for the Karnhorn Deserter.  Who wouldn't desert the
Karnorns, given the chance?  But my business here is to win fights, not sympathize
with sniveling Karnhorns. -- Elena Faresta
