The Dungeon Bowl final has started at full speed between Game Ogre and the ale fueled vikings known as the Brassic Monkeys. Despite their name, the Monkeys got a cash full of gold before the match, which they spent in a huge keg full of beer (vikings being vikings) and hiring star player Boomer Eziasson.
It was a match made in heaven, at least for the dwarf. Eziasson has decided to sit out the first half, drink as much as he can and tell stories about his younger days to the rest of the bench, prompting Dead Eye Dwight, the young but promising Monkeys' thrower, to utter "Ok, Boomer" several times already.
On the pitch, the end of the half looms over both teams which are busy beating the crap out of each other in the center of the gridiron. Berserk Bill tried to run for the TD but was quickly intercepted by the Workat the Ogrepaid, who seems to be earning his keep this time around!
Unfortunately the damn snotlings seem to have trouble picking up a ball bigger than themselves so the ball is still near the Ogres' end zone.
More news to come after a pause for advertisement!
But, they pick the ball! And the snotling flies! flies! And lands! He is within scoring range! Now, here comes Crazy Man Michaels... dodges! And dodges! again! goes for it... Ball carrier down! Half time! 0-0 and the Ogres will receive the ball. Will they be able to score despite Boomer going in the pitch? Not likely!
Second half starts! Very long kick-off, thanks to Adalan Adakz kicking boots. However, Workat the Ogrepaid picks it up beside his own endzone and starts running. Will he really just run the whole pitch for the touchdown?
Crazy as it is, it might happen! After 5 turns, his teammates have thinned the norse's ranks and the Ogrepaid is, after an 80 yards* race, within range for a running touchdown! Boomer tried to stop him but hit instead Wild Billy Irish! The werewolf is not happy about it and likely still a bit confused, but he might be the only thing between Game Ogre and the touchdown! Will he manage to stop the unstoppable? Stay tuned!
* 19 squares. Assuming 24 squares = 100 yards
The Ogrepaid keeps running! 20 yards left. 15 yards left. 10 yards left. 5 yards. Touc... Wait what? He stops to wave at the crowd before the end zone! Come on, you dimwit! Move! Move! Stop smiling and score!
Behind him Wild Billy Irish and Lupus Lorringer dismember #Iamnotfood, the snotling activist marking them. They also kind of make a point, I think. Both werewolves are eating him while running towards the ball carrier. The ogre keeps waving. The werewolves are closing in!
"Run, you fool!" says the team's wizard, but Workat is loving the crowd! Now the ogre's coach is angrily shaking the wizard, telling him to do something useful. Wh..? Why is everything black now? An Eclipse! the werewolves stop and howl, confused. In this light everyone looks like a goblin! Workat finally takes a hint and moves. He scores! Touchdown! Tooooooooouchdooooown! Gaaaaaaaame Ogreeee ONE! Braaassic Monkeeeeeeys ZERO!
With only 5* minutes left in the clock, will the vikings manage a come back? We'll find out after a word (or two. They run the show, basically) from our sponsors!
* Assuming 50 (Calcio Florentino) to 60 (american football) minutes for a match, 2 turns for the Monkey and 1 for Game Ogre should be between 4m40s or 5m37s
Aaaaand that's the final whistle! The Monkeys got entangled with the Ogre's defense and couldn't get close to the End Zone. Game Ogre is the new Dungeon Bowl winner!!
What a game, only one touchdown but 11 players couldn't finish it, 6 are so battered they will not be able to play in a couple of weeks and 2 even died! Blood Bowl at its finest! Of course, the question remains... How could an eclipse be so decisive when the game is played underground?
