Hello coaches and Nuffle worshippers! Welcome to the inaugural edition of the Thursday Night Blood bowl recap! Our first week of Thursday Night Blood Bowl featured Coach Midway_Monster01's Varangian Guard versus MrB1129's House Verindath!
A fierce showdown between poorly-armored Norsemen and crafty Dark Elves. The game started with the Norsemen receiving the ball, Nuffle smiled on them as the Ulfwerener found himself in possession of the ball.
MrB1129 made his intentions clear straight away; when given the opportunity he was going to foul the Yhetee Bragh An Scather!
With the feminine wiles of Matron Verindath distracting our poorly paid referees a line elf was able to take the opportunity to put a spiked boot down on the Yhetee's throat!
Even though the Yhetee was knocked out and removed from the pitch the cheap shot did little to blunt the Varangian Guard's Momentum. With a quick hand off from the ulfwerener Midway_Monster01 was the first to get on the board!
After the kick off House Verindath resolved to double down and not give up any more points, however no one told the Varangian Guard as they continued to come full force. After the flagrant cheap shot on their Yhetee, they resolved to gain possession on House Verindath's side of the Pitch.
The House Verindath were not going to accept an invasion into their domain without challenge. With a swift counter attack Norseman Skeld suffered a brutal injury.
The elves of House Verindath looked disdainfully upon the injured norseman. With cold hate in their black eyes they planned their next move.
Despite the injury to Skeld the norsemen did not take their eyes of the prize of another touchdown. Even though the dark elves were able to dislodge the ball they were unable to prevent the score.
With Midway_Monster01's smartly executed Blitz, Roneth was able to block the dark elf off the ball and scoop it up for the score. With a half left to play House Verindath was staring at 2 to 0 deficit. Will Mr B1129 have the time to even the score?
After receiving a few key blocks and taking more than a few risks, MRB1129 lined his team in position to put a touchdown on the board. Would the score be able to turn the tide? Or had too many turns elapsed to make the difference?
With a swift dodge the matron was able to get into the end zone. As she soaked up the adulation from the drunken crowd, she planned her next move knowing that a win was unlikely.
After the touchdown House Verindath reluctantly prepared for the kick off knowing that barring some form of calamity befalling them, The Varangian Guard would escape with the 2 to 1 victory.
Once the ball was secured by the Norse runner, they were able to run out the remainder of turns and secure the 2 to 1 victory. The teams left it all out on the pitch and all praise must go to Nuffle for providing the dice.
