                                      SPY REPORT

     It is I, Novgorodny Vir, Spymaster of Spymasters.  Look on my work, ye mighty, 
and despair!  CORPS?  Who?  SLYTHERIN HOUSE is the top team these days, buddies!  
SLYTHERIN HOUSE had cause to celebrate, after LUCIUS MALFOY got 12 points by beating 
TEASE.  A certain someone should cut down on the drinking and practice more, after 
losing 7 points to THE TICK.  (Discrete enough, RETRIBUTION?) Duelmaster LORD TAYLOR 
from CORPS is going for the gold, as he Dark Arena Challenged DARK ARENA's 
ARENAMASTER DERNAL.  Ooh, the excitement!  The crowds were amazed this turn, as 
ARENAMASTER DERNAL killed the Duelmaster, LORD TAYLOR, leaving CORPS in mourning.  
The audience got their money's worth, as they witnessed RIOT ACT attain the throne at 
the cost of LORD TAYLOR's life!  Word has it one team in CHAVEZ RAVINE is taking 
speech lessons to try to bore their opponent to death.  I'll bet it works.   
     And how sociable are CHAVEZ RAVINE's warriors?  Come, let us see.  Like the 
noble eagle soaring amongst the mountaintops, so stand the warriors of BROTHERHOOD, 
alone and unchallenged.  The warriors of BROTHERHOOD found their efforts at combat 
frustrated as SLYTHERIN HOUSE apparently had more important things to do than fight.  
Everyone is famous for fifteen minutes, and TSIRELL is it right now.  Most challenged 
warrior.  Isn't SAND DANCERS proud!   
     Ah, the duel!  The roar of the oppenent, the smell of the crowd!  Questions are 
being raised about the disposing of severed body parts in the arena.  A certain 
tavern in CHAVEZ RAVINE would I avoid!   
     All good things must come to an end.  My fingers tire and I fear my incessant 
prattling may cause unfair judgement upon my impeccable character.  Do not despair!  
I shall return!-- Novgorodny Vir

Lord Taylor -- Well, I see you're graduating.  Good cess!  Have a nice trip. -- Pelak
ten Zorn

Retribution -- That's all well and good, but make sure you've got the proper guilty
party first!  I'm done some things in my life for which somebody--if they were mean-
spirited enough--might want retribution, but nothing to YOU. -- Donstan

Too bad standbys don't teach better. -- Tsirell

Pansy Parkinson -- Don't look at me!  I'm not taller enough. -- Ronsevan

Deatheater -- Odd diet, that.  But if it works for you.... -- Jaego Klee
P.S.  The Commission actually got my race right.  How do you suppose they guessed?
Maybe because I'm more than seven feet tall?
