    Glad to see my virtual self learned that the ref doesn't care if you kick them when they're standing. He must've picked up the recommended footwear as well.

    Looks like the silly victory dances
    Meanwhile, Jibar actually made himself useful by standing around and distracting the other team while the competent players got them from behind.

    P.S. Anonomuss' beating skills have manifested themselves in his passing - he gained the skill Strong Arm after I rolled a double on his level up.
    Excellent. Maybe someone else should take the kick skill, just to make sure I can maximise the 'thrower-ey' skills. Maybe Jibar?

    I think he lost a glove in that sucking chest wound. Keeping up the carnage, Balthazar cold-cocked one of the seven-foot tall warrior lizards.

    He would go on to spend the rest of the game as an iron pillar that the big lizards just kept bouncing off. Meanwhile, the area around the ball had descended into a huge fight, with no one able to keep their hands on it.
    That's me! One big, irony pillar of... stuff.

    The final. It wasn't much of a cup, but any trophy is better than no trophy at all. It was the Bright Crusaders again, other humans, who had handed us our first ever defeat. It was payback time.

    We all trooped out onto the field for the coin toss, glaring daggers at each other. Well, I was glaring daggers. I couldn't see what anyone else was doing because of the helmets. The ball was kicked and the game was on. Things started out pretty well:

    Spoiler
    Show


    Then the Crusaders counterattacked. Anonomuss' little cadre of guardians folded like house of cards in a stiff breeze. Despite Obadiah's best efforts (and his new diving tackle technique) they managed to make a break for it.

    Spoiler
    Show


    Spoiler
    Show


    Where had our great start gone? How was this going downhill already? We received the ball again and Anonomuss began setting up the pass. Then he was interrupted by a Crusaders hit squad and Conan the Fullbladder had to snatch the ball from his hands.

    Spoiler
    Show


    Balthazar made an expert gap for him to run through and Fullbladder did so, lining up a pass to Anegrim who was ready to run it home. Then he dropped it.

    Spoiler
    Show


    The end of the first half devolved into a brawl over the ball, but we just couldn't get it back in time to score. We kicked off in the second off, 1-0 down. The line of scrimmage became a war zone, neither side giving an inch.

    Spoiler
    Show


    An opportunity arose! Balthazar blitzed through the enemy defenders and punched the ball carrier into the crowd, who took the opportunity to throw a few punches of their own. Punches, and kicks, and bottles...

    Spoiler
    Show


    Then the crowd threw the ball back onto the pitch. About six inches from our end zone and right at the feet of one of their players.

    Spoiler
    Show


    Obadiah the Slim ran halfway across the pitch and fought off two of the Crusaders by himself until Knuckles and Sir Alex were able to reinforce him.

    Spoiler
    Show


    Meanwhile, the trippin' foot of Anonomuss was in fine form.

    Spoiler
    Show


    With support from several other players, Obadiah started the long run up the pitch. The second half was about to end and we needed a touchdown to equalise and get to extra time. Could he make it?

    Spoiler
    Show


    Spoiler
    Show


    YES. In the very last seconds of the match, Obadiah snatches us another chance. Now it was the meatgrinder of extra time, where every injury counts and every mistake can be fatal - literally.

    Overtime turned into a huge fight, with neither team able to get much over the halfway line. We would seize the ball and push a few inches forward, then they would take it back and push a few inches back. One by one, players fell victim to concussions or injuries.

    Spoiler
    Show


    It ground my teeth, but they were winning. One of their blitzers made a run for our end zone with the ball. Dominic! Get in there!

    Spoiler
    Show


    He didn't hold onto the ball for long. The same blitzer tried the same run only to be brought down by Anegram.

    Spoiler
    Show


    But we just didn't have enough people or enough luck to hold.

    Spoiler
    Show


    It had taken so long to get to this point that the referee blew his whistle out of desperation to finish the match. We wouldn't get a chance to equalise. Our dreams of the Clean Cup had come to nothing.

    So I signed us up for another one. Who needs this crummy cup? The Aerial Cup isn't far away, they'll let anybody play, and we'll be playing in proper stadiums this time.

    In the meantime, I'm going to hire some guys to burn and salt this poxy field so that no one ever speaks of the Clean Cup again.

    - * -

    You might have been able to hear me swearing as I played this game. It lasted 32 turns - fully twice the length of a standard match - and featured the most rollercoaster luck I've ever had. In the end, with half the team unconscious I just couldn't get the ball upfield faster than the Crusaders moved it downfield. Bah.

    Oh well: Next Cup!

    Sorry, Coach. I guess they don't call me "Slippery" Fullbladder for running.

    Actually, they don't call me that. But after this game they just might. Ah well, "Old Ironshod" Fullbladder can take a bit of namecalling.

    We'll take something other than lizards down in the next cup, Coach. You can count on us.

    Looks like Sir Alexander was still recovering from the concussion he got before the previous game. Standing on the halfway line and rucking with everything that walks past might sound like a fun job, but he didn't even do THAT spectacularly enough to get noticed

    So, the Aerial Cup. Apparently it was invented by elves to show off their passing, but who cares? It's a small cup and it draws proper crowds. Unlike the Clean Cup, though, this one is a tour. We'll be going to all sorts of proper stadiums, not playing all our games in some guy's field. The Bugman's guy wasn't happy about the contract we'd screwed up but I made sure to bring a few helpers to the next negotiation. A few, like, the entire team.

    He wasn't going to sign us again - not with all those broken fingers - but some goblin casino owner was willing to throw us a bit of cash for a promised 50% win rate. With new 'Goblin Gambling' team shirts, I loaded the lads into carts and headed for our first game.

    When we arrived, I got two surprises. Firstly, the venue:

    Spoiler
    Show


    I knew the dwarves had done some sort of deal to host a few games, but when I thought of dwarf stadiums I had expected something underground. This... this was high up.

    The second surprise was our opponents. Remember the Bramble Blockers from the Clean Cup? Yeah. Turned out they (and their treeman) had come along as well. Was I ever shocked when they danced out onto the pitch. Still, we were here now and the match was ready to start.

    Things started out pretty well. We clashed with their front line, they dropped the ball, and 'Zippy' Fullbladder was able to nip around and snatch it before they could recover. He didn't hold on to it for long, though, but their thrower seemed to be a bit confused and ran the wrong way up the pitch.

    Spoiler
    Show


    A quick blitz from Dominic opened the scoring - the bloody-handed destruction scoring, that is.

    Spoiler
    Show


    Anegram took advantage of the opening to duck past his marker and leave the elves' thrower in a heap on the ground. The inevitable followed:

    Spoiler
    Show


    (I saved over the touchdown pic by accident, but he definitely scored.)

    It was looking good. Clearly the elves were distracted by being surrounded by dwarf spectators waving "we hate elves" banners. They were more distracted when, guided by our strangely androgynous cheerleader, one of the dwarves threw a rock at one of the elf wingers - and by 'threw a rock' I mean 'fired a cannon'. That took him out of the picture.

    We kicked off again and, again, we smashed through their lines like a cannonball through goblins. Again, they were having chronic trouble picking up the ball. The only thing that stood between the Giants and total domination of the pitch was that blasted treeman - until Onimaru pulled out a perfect lumberjack impression.

    Spoiler
    Show


    Knuckles saw his chance and boy, did he take it:

    Spoiler
    Show


    I don't know where he got a jar of deathwatch beetles from at such short notice, but that sort of thinking shows a prepared mind. The treeman wouldn't be taking any more part in this match. One of the elves shed a single tear at this wanton destruction of the woodlands, so Dominic punched him. Meanwhile, Anegram reprised his touchdown-scoring method of earlier and took out the ball carrier.

    Then the wardancer arrived. In seconds, it looked like this:

    Spoiler
    Show


    I hate wardancers. A fierce fight for the ball followed, but we didn't see another wardancer sneaking behind the line of scrimmage. One inch-perfect pass later...

    Spoiler
    Show


    Have I mentioned that I hate wardancers? It was 1-1 heading into the second half but we'd done a lot of damage to the elf team. Could they withstand any more beating?

    Not really, no. We knocked holes in their line like whatever it is that puts holes into that holey cheese. Narazil was clear, Anonomuss wound up his arm:

    Spoiler
    Show


    What a throw! Narazil sprinted for the end zone when:

    Spoiler
    Show


    Where did she come from? Have I mentioned that I hate wardancers?

    Then the other wardancer tripped over and fractured her collar bone. Oh, how I laughed.

    Spoiler
    Show


    Apparently the elves took offence at my laughing and one of them managed to put down Sir Alexander in a permanent-until-Bucky-got-his-hands-on-him kind of way. Dominic took offence at this and returned the favour:

    Spoiler
    Show


    The surviving wardancer, now in possession of the ball, sprinted through our lines like they weren't even there. It would have been jaw-dropping if it wasn't for the fact that she was on the other team. Then she made the mistake of dodging past Obadiah, the best tackler on our team. That stone pitch is merciless on elf skulls.

    Xeper stepped in with elf-like grace and snatched the ball from the twitching hands of the wardancer. Knuckles cleared away the elven defender, and Xeper fired the ball through the tiniest of gaps into the safe hands of Narazil:

    Spoiler
    Show


    Spoiler
    Show


    Note in the background of those two shots the utter carnage in the elves' infirmary. Two wardancers, a treeman, and three pointless schlubs. Nice work team!

    All we had to do was hold the elves off for the last few minutes of the match and we would be home free. We were doing okay when, horror of horrors, Knuckles made a mistake. Instead of punching out the ball carrier, he fell flat on his face in front of him.

    Spoiler
    Show


    The elf was open! He sprinted off towards our end zone with the sort of speed only an elf running away from eleven huge, angry men can muster. The end zone was almost under his feet when:

    Spoiler
    Show


    *punch*

    Nice one, Onimaru.

    The whistle blew! The match was over. Victory was ours! I hear the next team might be orcs, who will give us a run - or rather, a fight - for our money, so no slacking!

    (Fullbladder rolled +1 MV on his level-up, so now he really is zippy, and Dominic picked up Block, the better to hit people with. The team is coming together! )

    You know, given the name of the team, you should totally try and hire a real giant. He could fall over and squash the enemy scrimmage

    Meanwhile Jibar is spending some time in the infirmary after punching a hole in his skull while picking his nose waiting to play.
    It could be worse - in the last 6 pictures with me in it, I've been either unconscious or being dragged off by a pair of panicky-looking Orderlies!

    That settles it - Next game, I'm riding my horse onto the field and claiming Racial Discrimination against anyone that asks. I mean, Centaur players have just as many rights as the rest of us, right?

    (The alternative was to find something that rhymes with the Lumberjack song from Monty Python, but there are dwarves out there with cannons...)

    Nice one, Onimaru.
    No problem coach, it's what you're paying us for, right?

    What was that? A 'dee furred rye in purse meant claws' in my contract? Dammit, small print...

    So is this going to be a standup fight or another pig hunt?

    At least the league-sanctioned shiv should work well against the Orcs. Knuckles didn't expect the elves to bring a tree with them the first time, but he was prepared the second time. Don't ask how many officials needed to be bribed to bring the beetles onto the playfield.

    What works well against Orcs? Or should the family heirloom brass knuckles and league-approved shiv be fine?

    Against orks? Fire. Lots of fire. Or holy warhammers, alternatively, wielded by barbarians who later become gods.

    Huzzah!

    Winning is awesome.

    I suppose those Orcs wouldn't mind obliging us by lying down while we score?
