We go against this merry little bunch of fellas today
Their players are not too skilled as of yet. A couple of Side Stepping persons will prove to be a nuisance to get rid of.
They hire Eldril Sidewinder, the amnesiac Star Player who goes on by helping any elves, despite having forgotten which faction he belonged to. A Bloodweiser Babe has been added to the mix as well.
"Horned Rat Gutters" stadium?
This is Eldril. He can hypnotize people.
We won the coin toss, so we are actually kicking. Remember, it's elves. If we score quickly, I don't want to play defensive for the rest of the game. I much prefer the elves score quickly.
This is our defensive formation. As you can see, I've taken an extra square between the pitch border and the players, this is because of Frenzied Witch Elves.
And we go!
Well a Quick Snap ain't too bad
Elf turn #1
They start from the arrow formation
After some moves for pitch control, we see their first action. And it's nasty, their assassin attempts to stab Spoon!
Spoon's armor holds, but he definitely is at much greater risk of getting assassinated than he used to be.
The other witch elf picks up the ball. Luckily, as she won't be able to do anything worse
Having moved the players, we finally see the Blitz action. It's by nobody else than Eldril, and against Black Dynamite!
However, the outcome is somewhat anticlimatic
Finally, line elf defends the super star
Our turn #1
Since our defensive lines weren't broken, this is quite an easy turn. Rakclaw assists
And Scotty blitzes
And reduces the head count already by one. It's a knock out
And as much as the elves tried to protect Eldril, they found themselves in a situation where their defences crumble. Black Dynamite discusses the Blitz action with Eldril. With his fists!
Eldril goes back to the grass roots level.
Swashmebuckle goes to talk to Spoon. Can't imagine topics but I suspect it might have something to do with eating.
Srihag closes the right flank, as the witch would have difficult time attacking Srihag alone.
Mad Max and Mammoth reinforce the defensive line on the left
And Spoon blocks
Well I sort of counted on this and Spoon going down isn't actually a problem. Perhaps he'll be able to repeat the incident last time where he hurted somebody with Both Down?
Nope, the opponent is just stunned. At least the assassin is down for the next turn.Turnover
Elf turn #2
We see the elves concentrating their players around the ball carrier
And Eldril runs back? What do they have on their minds?
Great, Blackbelt must now break the hypnosis. He doesn't even provide tackle zones.
Then we get a blitz against Scourge
Which indicates that Scourge goes down. Will this be a breakthrough attempt?
Interestingly, no. Instead, it's our turn #2.
[Sigh] And I had such high hopes for you troll
Scotty, Swashmebuckle and Rakclaw reinforce the left hand side
Black Dynamite provides a flanking support for the right
Srihag moves in to assist
Mammothtank engages in the fisticuffs. What ever you do, don't lose to the zoggin' elves!
It's a stun. Good. Now don't jump, and everything will be alright.
Mad Max blocks Eldril
It's the second one that catches and injures him
Good. One less annoyance on the pitch.
Black Knight then blocks the last standing line elf on the right, not very successfully.
Blackbelt goes head to head against the witch elf
Whatever, you can go wrestle with her.
Our second turn ends in this
Elf Turn #3
The first hopeful is running away from Black Knight. This is a grave receiving threat and must be dealt with.
The witch elf moves closer to the left
Are they attempting to dodge through our left flank?
The elves guard the ball in a very tight group
Hmmm, this could work to our advantage.
The second witch elf then blocks Mad Max, and Mad Max goes down
Our turn #3
Srihag checks the guy who got past our defensive line
The more effective defense is of course, to steal the ball from the elves.
Scourge takes one down like that
Black Dynamite does the same
Scotty blitzes the guy next to the ball carrier, he is the last line of defense
The result leaves something to be wished for.
Alright, push him then.
Swashmebuckle goes first in attempts to knock the second witch elf down
That's a push.
Rakclaw is next on the line, and that's two pushes
Black Knight moves to stop the elves from switching sides
And our wall-o-orc looks like this for the end of Turn #3
Elf turn #4
The scoring threat just laughs at our petty attempts at arresting him.
A blitzer blocks Scotty
Nice. Scotty goes down with a one die block. Will they escape our clutches this turn?
Unfortunately, they had to attempt a one die block against Mad Max. It didn't go well for themTurnover
Our turn #4
Did someone say punch buffet?
Scourge blocks first the ball carrier
The witch goes down! The ball scatters next to the border!
Scotty rolls a push once again. He pushes the guy on the ball.
The does a lengthy scatter, and ends up next to the recently downed witch elf.
Mammothtank continues next with a block, attempting to push the elf Blitzer out of the pitch. Unfortunately, this was the fella who had Side Step. He literally side steps Mammoths push.
Black Knight moves in to tighten the loop
Blackbelt attempts to knock down the Witch elf again. No such luck today.
Swashmebuckle finally nails the direct hit
Yay, the witch is down!
Rakclaw moves in to assist the SNAFU at left hand side.
Srihag reaches the runaway once again
"You ain't passing us without a dodge check, pal!"
Black Dynamite blocks the assassin
Well, that Fear Maker met his maker
Black Dynamite levels up too
Spoon goes to assist the cage break up on the right hand side. Just get your ass over there troll, Guard is needed!
Mad Max makes it harder to escape skimming the border
And that's our turn #4.
