                             Notes from the arena champ.

     A Kung-Fu Master?  Piffle.

                                   Roekfort Sims

                                      SPY REPORT

     I was going on vacation, see?  Surf, sun...  But what do those bums say?  "Hit 
the road, Debby Tonte.  JURINE needs a spyreport."  Oh, well.  MVP award for JEHAD 
NGA?  BLADE AND BLOOD's proud of him after beating XAROK YOLE and getting 12 points.  
Talk about yer big time losers!  LADY THORNE got smashed by AMBITIOUS GUARD, and lost 
11 points!  Boo, hoo!  CIRSIUM VULGARE slew (slaught?  slet?) ROEKFORT SIMS!  
Actually I never liked him much.  He just wanted to fight all the time.  I hear the 
top team insists all their warriors get nine hours sleep.  They want photogenic 
fighters for PR photos.   
     So just why would someone becomes a warrior anyway?  It can't be for these 
really neat Spyreports can it?  Like, is CHAM DUGAN popular, or what?  He was 
challenged the most in all of JURINE!  He's got a 4-3-0, is that good?  For sure, I 
was holding my breath when I found out SUBU EL KEER challenged CHAM DUGAN.  After 
all, haven't BLADE AND BLOOD and MIDDLE WAY 16 had a long standing duel in JURINE?  
It wasn't a spectacular fight, or anything, but CHAM DUGAN wants me to write about it 
since he overcame SUBU EL KEER.  Satisfied?   
     Challenges, revenges, Bloodfeuds.  All JURINE ever talks about is fighting!  Me, 
I'm more laid back.  D'ya think JEHAD NGA is feeling guilty for killing MIDDLE WAY 
16's XAROK YOLE, a mere boy?  Naah, I doubt it.  What if they had a fight and nobody 
showed up?  I'd be out of a job, that's what!!!   
     I really didn't, you know, study when I was a kid.  Who would've guessed I'd be 
a famous Spyreporter?  I gotta leave.  JURINE is like such a dump, and you guys smell 
too much!  Its been really albendranius!  Later, guys-- Debby Tonte
