Sigh... Was just writing a longish report when my browser decided to crash for some reason. Reminded me why I used to write the reports in an auto-save Editor when I had time for the long ones. But anyways, don't feel like trying to repeat myself, so here's just the report:

Lovely and relaxed game that also doubled as a regular season concert, as the ZEN who were hired to perform the concert decided to do it a the same time as they were playing the match. Kvasilad played nice defence and deserved the win, even though he only made one Ogre Airline play. Thanks for the game, Kvasiman, see you next season!

Oops, just realized I have a beer-festival-thingie both Friday and Saturday, sorry. Sunday and Monday might work, unless we're doing some work on the cabin, which I'm not certain about right now. If all falls through, I'll have to come back with times for next week I'm afraid.

No worries, this just means I'll have more easy-going Friday evening. Have a fun festival, maybe enjoy one or two pints of Bloodweiser! Monday is a no-go, that's the weekly boardgaming night but Sunday should be OK anytime before 19.00 with two-to-three hours heads-up. Tuesday/Wednesday should be OK for 18.30-20.30. Thursday not sure yet. Friday through Sunday will be no-go due to an orienteering event in here.

Final match day is on! Not much hope for either of our teams, J-R, although I guess you still have a very theoretical shot at the finals?

Anyway, it's the first time I have 5 ogres on the field, and I'm excited about it! :D

Play times, however, can be hard. I think Thursday 19+ is good, Friday 20+ is probably good.

Weekend is uncertain, but if you squawk in our Discord channel, I might suddenly have the time for a match.

Failing all that, it's next week sometime.

Yup, time to see if my bards can make an impression on your Ogres. Could be a hard mission, as I fear your guys are more used to rock music (you know, the kind where you make your ears ring by bashing a rock at your head). But anyways, Friday should work, I'm going to see the new X-Men flick but should be back home ready to play at around... 20.30.

If that fails, I'll Disco around on weekend.

Wowzers, this one was a violent one. There's a rumour going around that both teams had refused to sign an armour sponsoring contract with the famed Norse armor manufacturer Fantasy Armor Inc. and for some reasons, the armours of both teams were mysteriously corroded before the game and thus were breaking all around. The bearded bard Dwarfs started on the attack, got stopped, lost the ball and then failed to stop the pirates from scoring the go-ahead 1-0. However, saving grace for the Dwarfs was that they managed to take the chef of the One Piece Pirates away from the game permanently, like really permanently. Thus the Orcs had to settle for some stadium food instead of a well-planned rations of groot and chicken guts that they would've normally gotten.  Thus began the second half with the famished Orcs on the offence. The lack of nutrition really showed, though the green ones managed to pick-off one Dwarf in their hunger rage before the combination of rotting armour and grumbling stomachs took their toll and Orcs started dropping like flies. Orc ball-carrier got driven close to sidelines and when he tried to dodge away to safety, he used his sealegs instead of the dry-land ones, and down he went. Dwarfs soon had the ball and as the admiral of the Pirate team also suffered a permanent removal, the Dwarfs seemed to have the game in hand. But then a brave Orc blitzer took a chance with a solo blitz at the carrier. But the distance was too much and the famished Orc fell down before getting through. Dwarfs quickly went for a 1-1 tie and set up for a scoring chance defence. That chance was taken away when the angried Orc crowd decided to rock down both the TD scorer and the Orc Blitzer who had failed to stop the score. But the Orcs still had a scoring chance, so after some trickery with the ball (it was actually handed off from a player to another, which was quite a surprise for Dwarfs who are used to hanging on to everything they manage to pickup in the fear of fumbing it away from their stubby fingers) ball-carrying Blitzer was on a scoring run. But the bearded bards would have none of that, and the Orc Blitzer was taken down by a Troll-Slayer while another, more furrier Blitzer held the green Blitzer in check. Some mindless violence ensued and then the match ended.
Yup, this was a bashy game. Haven't dared to check the numbers yet, but I bet both teams had well above average armour rolls. Tough game for Gnaar-man, losing two Orcs, but as always, Gnaarkill acted cool and collected, like a true gentleman he is. Sorry again for those dead greens, hope you make it to the finals!

Match day has been forwarded, so it's time for the penultimate week of the regular season. Play on!

All righty, now we're talking. Match against the man who really is the embodimend of the heart of the Norsca Union League. Gnaarkill, the coacher of Greens, Master Pirate of the Old World, Clearly a Reader of a Pirate Manga, may I tempt you for a CEST start on any of the following times?

- Friday 20-
- Sunday any time before 18
- Tuesday/Wednesday 17.30-20

Let me know if any of those suits you, sir!

All righty, this was one one of the purest bashy vs bashy match I've ever seen. Dwarfs started on the attack but the lizzie line held and even though one Saurus was -ST injured (and then killed by an apothecary who may or may not have been missing a corpse for a lecture he is about to have tomorrow in the University of Butchering for Doctors and Meatpackers), and Dwarfs couldn't get past with deeper Skink wall preventing deep penetrations. Dwarfs went for a break on the last possible moment, Lizardmen responded by sending a Skink to a scoring distance. Ball-carrying Dwarf managed to stay on his feet initially but then was forced out of bounds by a second block and the crowd toss gave the Illuminati a scoring chance. That they took, and thus the first half ended 1-0 for the Illuminati.
2nd half started with the 9 Dwarfs against 10 Lizards, but soon there were only 7 Dwarfs left and second Lizardmen TD seemed invetable. But then two unfortunate blocks followed which gave the Dwarfs a chance for the ball-carrying skink. Down he went and the ball landed next to endzone. There it was fumbled out of bounds by a Dwarf blitzer, perhaps intentionally, as the crowded ball was thrown back into the play and straight into the hands of a Dwarf Berserker. Suddenly there was an (unlikely) chance for a score for the Dwarfs with a deep going for it run from another Blitzer and a throw to him. But that would not be as the inaccurate pass took off succesfully but landed too much to the right for the Blitzer to get it and still make it to the goal. Mindless violence ensued, and then the match ended.
Nicely played by Napoleon, haven't checked the stats yet, but it felt like we both had good and bad breaks with the dice, so everything was about even. It really came down to the side getting most take-outs winning and this time it was the Lizards. Nice game, good luck in the rest, Napoleon the man!

Yep, that's fine for me too. So see you tomorrow at 19:00!

Match day has been forwarded and day 5 is ready to play.

Napoleon, looks like I won't be able to play until next week as I'm visiting the capital of your home country during the weekend. And at the moment I can't offer any other CEST starting times than this:
- Wednesday (the 29th) 18-20

Let me know if that suits you, sir. If not, just offer me a time on Thursday 30th - Sunday 2nd and I should be able to plan around it.

Another gig for the Dwarf bards, this time in a place So Dry, So Hot. You know the place, one where Nuffle has his Winter home set up because he likes it dry and hot. And this has shown in the results of the local Blood Bowl team. But it seems that Nuffle doesn't like dwarfen music, as the Khemri side were allowed to play with relatively normal luck after the initial rush of bad luck. Must've been the lingering nuffling.
Match started with the ZEN on the attack. Everything proceeded as it would between two bashy sides when neither one is getting key players off field. That is, situation bogged down and ball was knocked out eventually. On the last minutes of the half Saitani got a chance for score, but the Khemri Blitzer didn't have agile enough hands (or someone had replaced the Blood Bowl receivers most trusted helper, Madam Trustworthy's Horse Farm's Moisticky-Glue Stick with a version that doesn't stick to a bone). Zero all on the first half.
Second half the Khemri managed to break through the side fast and got enough Dwarfs down or held up that a fast score became unevitable, 1-0 for the Khemri. Dwarfs went at it second time, and after a midfield bog-down the little bards made an uncharasteristic passing play to a Blitzer deep within Khemri side. Blitzer got blitzed and kept to his feet, and soon his band-mates organized a blitz play that freed up the sidelined Blitzer for a dodge-TD which he made. 1-1. Khemri had more than enough time to score, but some lingering nuffle scent prevented a go-ahead goal. So it would be a tie.
Very nice play from Saitani, he really knew what he was doing and surprised me in his first attack with a fast Khemri play. Thanks again for the game, really fun one this one was.

Day 4 looks to be up, so it's time to game on!

Saitani, looks like it's time to see how well the sweet tunes of my Dwarfen bards echo inside the sandy skulls of your Khemri. Weekend will be my best bet for some gaming, but there are some other CEST start times during next week also:

- Saturday any time
- Sunday any time before 18.00
- Tuesday/Wednesday 17.30-19.30

Let me know if any of those suits you, sir. Things look hazy after Wednesday, so I won't be able to say anything definate about later days until about Monday, if that is nescessary.

Another rainy match for the Dwarf bards, but this time with more anticipated goins on. ZEN started on offence, but as their routes were blocked by a green wall that refused to be budged even though individual pieces of it went down. But those pieces didn't crumble and got up to take the beating. So the Dwarfes were forced to change routes couple of times as the BOB line held and the Orc Blitzers were bringing the pressure. This resulted in Metal Orkhestra getting a blitz on the ball-carrier and it was such a nice blitz that Kojo the runner was carried off the field badly hurt. Dwarfs were tied up, so Orcs managed to get the ball. ZEN bards managed to put some easy pressure on, but that did nothing else but forced the Orcs to score 1-0 so early that Dwarfs had a theoretical chance of scoring. That however wouldn't be, as the kickoff resulted in well-planned Orkish Blitz which combined with a shallow kick made the Orc TD much more likely than that of Dwarfs. So, ZEN runner decided to pickup the ball, run to the sideline and dump a ball deep into Orcish territory with a long pass. Bashing ensued and soon after the 1st half ended.
2nd half started 10 Dwarfs against 9 Orcs and soon the numbers got even more skewed when the Dwarfs got their armor breaking gloves on. 2 Bobs were carried off the field and on top of that the Orc Blitzers couldn't get the slippery ball up due to pouring rain. Their second botch resulted in the ball going over the sideline and resulted crowd punt ended up in the hans of a ZEN longbead. Little fella proceeded to run towards the goal as fast as he could but as the carrier was longbeard, Orc Blitzers had no trouble catching him. Dwarfs had a decent cover, but Orcs managed to pick off one of the covering players on two consecutive plays and thus the situation was hairy. Finally the ball-carrier went down few yards away from the goal. Couple of plays later the only chance of Dwarfs scoring was up to a brave longbeard to pickup the ball next to an Orc blitzer, dodge away and go for the goal with speed exceeding his capacity. This brilliant plan ended up failing during the first part of the process as the wetted ball slipped over the hands of the longbeard. Thus, metal music proved to be superior over the noicedoing of the Dwarf bards today.

Hairy match where lack of any armor breaks on the 1st half kept the Dwarfs stagnant and Lars got a chance for the ball, which he used expertly. On the 2nd half tables turned as I got blessed by Nuffle on my armor breaks and injured Orcs left and right and even got the ball early due to a crowd toss. However, as Lars had all of his Blitzers free, he managed to expertly pick off all my cover and finally halted the advance three squares from the goalline. Exciting match that came down to few key dice rolls. Nicely played, Lars the man, thanks for the game again and good luck in the rest!
