The lizardmen started a punishing first drive, with the Krox injuring 2 linemen on the first few turns. The Bretonnians waited patiently for an opening (while targetting skinks), and when the lizardmen tried to stall for just one more turn, a Lucky chain push allowed the Brets to penetrate the Cage, put the ball on the ground and cause enough of a problem to prevent the score. KO rolls were kind to the Brets, anfd suddenly they were up 10 vs 8 - 8 very strong lizards mind you. The Brets didn't want to attack too quickly, but an early injury forced their hand, and the Brets narrowly managed to get to the endzone before they were overwhelmed. That left the lizards with 3 turns to score, and as the numbers advantage had now swung in favour of the lizardmen, the made a fairly straightforward charge - and a somewhat poor defenseive effort Sealed it. 1-1 tie, with 2 skinks and a Bretonnian lineman missing the next game. http://plasmoids.dk/pbem Fri, 21 Sep 2018 09:52:18 +0200 http://plasmoids.dk/pbemindex.php?1537516338 Match: Deadly Recipe (1) vs. Tools are not Suede (1) Master Chef stole all 3 rerolls in the first half, and combined with some weak rolls from the CDs, the halflings had a pretty easy TD. And that was that. The CDs 4 turn offense didn't really pan out, but they mauled quite a few halflings. Then, in the second half, they took their time to maul some more halflings getting an uncontested score. The halflings chance of an OTS win vanished when they failed the first pick-up, but they did manage to protect the ball long enough (while getting some more players mauled) to secure the tie. Last block of the game killed one of the few skilled players on the halfling team, so over all the team is in a slightly worse state than before the game. http://plasmoids.dk/pbem Tue, 18 Sep 2018 08:12:16 +0200 http://plasmoids.dk/pbemindex.php?1537251136 Match: Autums Eleven (3) vs. Hidden Fun Stuff (0) Expectations for a goblin team are low, but this game went beyond that. With Nubbins Sawyer, the Looney, killed by the end of turn 1 by one of Wile E. Coyote (the Bombardier)'s bombs and said Wile E. Coyote spending most of his time on the ground until he seriously injured himself in the 6th turn, and despite a Get the Ref that allowed Giordano Bruno, the fanatic, to play through two drives, the elves were mostly able to dodge away from the Trolls and pummel the gobbos, who spent the last few turns just running away from the danger. Only good point for the Goblins, despite two attempts, the trolls didn't eat any of the goblins. http://plasmoids.dk/pbem Mon, 17 Sep 2018 12:11:35 +0200 http://plasmoids.dk/pbemindex.php?1537179095 Match: Yog-Sothoth Beardies (1) vs. Supervixen (2) A well deserved victory for Supervixen! The Chaos Dwarves were receiving and managed to pick up the ball in the pouring rain, but the Drows applied pressure from the beginning, and the poor hobgoblin ball carrier tried to pass the ball to Marguerite, the very dexterous Bull Centaur, who let the ball slip. Of course, being elves, Supervixen managed to pick the ball up and then, despite strong pressure from the Dwarves, to score at the last second of the first half. The Dark Elves started the second half receiving, but were forced in a relatively quick score by the dwarves. To draw, the dwarves would have needed to score twice in five turns, and one of those whilst kicking. Marguerite did manage a very nice three turns touchdown, but time was running short and the elves managed to protect the ball for the last turns. Supervixen is now celebrating its victory. Those of the players that survived, that is. http://plasmoids.dk/pbem Mon, 17 Sep 2018 11:45:55 +0200 http://plasmoids.dk/pbemindex.php?1537177555 Match: GlamRok Clan (1) vs. Morgul Maniacs (1) The Maniacs started the season in a new league, after the Spike final of last season. In the first match they where facing GlamRok Clan - a bunch of very strong Orcs. The orc started the game as expected, by knocking 4 Undead players out, with 10 against 7, the orcs scored in turn number 4. Morgul Maniacs tried to push for a late goal in first half, but the ball carrier was knocked down, at the end of the half. After a visit to the local cementary in the half, the undead started a strong drive. Manfred Von Carstein their star Ghoul, managed to run at the sideline, all the way up to the endline, and by that the Maniacs scored an equalizer at turn 5. There was a lot of arguing about whether an undead player has used dirty tricks, and the ref time went on, and they lost a turn. Having 3 turns left, the Orc was now in a hurry. The didnt managed to reach the endline, as their blitzer where caught, when trying to dodge away from the undead defence. http://plasmoids.dk/pbem Fri, 14 Sep 2018 07:47:59 +0200 http://plasmoids.dk/pbemindex.php?1536904079 Match: Blue Cobras (1) vs. Box Tribe (2) Thanks for the game Henrik. It was a bloody affair, with the goblins beating and fouling their way to a win. See you next time for some revenge for you :-) http://plasmoids.dk/pbem Mon, 10 Sep 2018 20:59:21 +0200 http://plasmoids.dk/pbemindex.php?1536605961 Match: Dirty Bandages (1) vs. The Mighty Blow's (0) The Khemri blunted the Norse offense and bashed them into submission before scoring a slow grind in the second half http://plasmoids.dk/pbem Tue, 04 Sep 2018 20:41:17 +0200 http://plasmoids.dk/pbemindex.php?1536086477 Match: Great Danes (3) vs. Orcdorp Posse (0) Game finished late. http://plasmoids.dk/pbem Sun, 02 Sep 2018 15:07:38 +0200 http://plasmoids.dk/pbemindex.php?1535893658 Match: No Gain No Pain (2) vs. Itza Dino-Might (3) Magic leap but dead frogs!!! http://plasmoids.dk/pbem Sun, 02 Sep 2018 10:39:29 +0200 http://plasmoids.dk/pbemindex.php?1535877569 Match: Shadow Sphynxes (0) vs. Dummy (0) Dummy match to delete MNGs http://plasmoids.dk/pbem Tue, 21 Aug 2018 11:56:37 +0200 http://plasmoids.dk/pbemindex.php?1534845397 Match: Shadow Sphynxes (2) vs. Sneak Steal Touchdown (3) A good Blood Bowl show with everything the 8k unwavering fans were expecting. Many touchdowns, elves failing easy dodges and getting injuries for life and even a double death at the end of the game, just to keep the crowd amused. The elves lost to faster, less incompetent skaves players but with a new ST4 blitzer, it felt like victory! ... It was still a loss, mind you. Against lowly rats. The linemen will get whipped accordingly. http://plasmoids.dk/pbem Mon, 20 Aug 2018 21:00:35 +0200 http://plasmoids.dk/pbemindex.php?1534791635 Match: Stockholm Bombers (1) vs. Supervixen (3) Tough game for the rats. The elves were just to agile for us.

The game was played Deep in the Lustrian jungle, so more Prehysteria fans were present even though Force Majeure are the most popular team in the League. Having lost their two earlier championship games (season 6 and season 7) Force Majeure had come out of retirement for one more shot at the big title, and having played a perfect 5-0-0 season, the were slightly worried that Nuffle would abandon them a third time. And right from the first kick-off, the Bretonnians seemed riddled with play-off nerves. The dirty player caught the kick-off and had to run back and do a hand off, while LOS blocking cost a reroll, and on the follow up turn, when the dirty player sprinted to get back into the action, he stumbled on his way to a key foul. In fact, not many Blocks hit home, and the Bretonnians were quickly swamped by their high-ST opponents. 3 turns in, the Brets were forced to do both 1 dice Blocks and half dice Blocks, and Things started to look pretty dire. The lizards wanted to press their advantage and went after the ball carrying squire, but left a single blitzer unmarked. On this very turn, Nuffle gave the Brets a reprieve, as the squire stepped back, threw a wobbly pass to the blitzer, who managed to outrun the lizards and get the touchdown on turn 5. That left a full quarter for Prehysterias offense, but already on their first turn, the ball carrying skink got a bit too eager, and was blindsided by a very fast Bretonnians blitzer. Ball on the ground and clock ticking, the lizards opted for an aggressive offensive play, but the skink who retrieved the Loose ball was tackled, and the Brets managed to make off with the ball Again. A saurus managed to Dodge and blitz from behind, but the Bretonnian noble evaded the crude beast and scored a TD for the lady of the lake on turn 8. After much deliberation, the Bretonnian head coach decided to risk the health of his finest players in order to avoid a 1-turn-score. 3 sidestepping blitzers took the line, which proved crucial, as the lizards rolled a quick snap. 2-0 at halftime, and Prehysteria knew they had to score quickly. They rushed forward, but the skink trying to dodge through the defensive line tripped and fell. It looked like a simple task of grabbing the ball and burning time off the clock, ut 2 horrible turns from the Bretonnians saw them beleaguered by big strong saurii. It was a grim fight and ultimately neither team was able to get their hands on the slippery ball until it was too late to change the outcome of the game. 2-0 for Force Majeure, who finally took their first title. http://plasmoids.dk/pbem Tue, 14 Aug 2018 17:40:05 +0200 http://plasmoids.dk/pbemindex.php?1534261205 Match: Temple of Doom (0) vs. Soft and Cuddly (1) Pretty standard first half grind by Soft and Cuddly. Second half saw the Temple of Doom (missing a KOd) guardian running into trouble and losing the ball, but a Blitzra recovered it and proved unblitzable. In the end though, he was slowed down enough to be just short of the EZ when the ref ended the game. http://plasmoids.dk/pbem Sun, 12 Aug 2018 12:18:56 +0200 http://plasmoids.dk/pbemindex.php?1534069136 Match: Tree Huggers (3) vs. GlamRok Clan (2) Wood Elves vs Orcs for the Dungeon Bowl, the least one can say is that the hatred was palpable on the pitch and in the tribunes. GlamRok Clan won the toss and decided to receive. The elvish kicker got over-excited, and not only did he kick high, but far out of the field. Varn Hail'in, the orcish Thrower, got the ball back and Nuffle seemed to be smiling on the Clan, who built a cage and started bashing the elves, alas without doing much damage. To make things even worse, for the elves, Bregalad's first decision was to take root, after which he got on his main job, which was to keep T-Wrecks, the Troll, out of the way. Enggoth Sagerock, the strip ball wardancer, then had a go at Varn Hail'in, but an overlooked guard and the thrower's sure hands limited his chances, whilst leaving Lithaldoren, the other wardancer, in a dangerous position. Unsurprisingly, he was stunned at the beginning of round 2, as was Daggael Riverbrook, one of the linemen, but the orcs were still failing to cause real damage. Using some of his teammates as meatshields, Enggoth Sagerock managed to jump in the cage and bring down Van Hail'in with a fractured skull (let Van Hail'in fans be reassured, the Apothecary was able to fix this). But Sylien Acornpool, one of the linemen, then failed to dodge out of danger, leaving the ball on the ground, in the middle of the orc cage. Turn 3 started with Fear Da Tears, one of the Black Orc Blockers, badly hurting Lindir, the elvish thrower, and Kveen, another Black Orc, also badly hurting Filgal Duskwood, one of the linemen. Twist da Head off your Sister, an agile orcish lineman, then picked up the ball and moved forward, the cage reforming around him. Enggoth Sagerock, once again, managed to bring him down and to run and dodge into safety, but the ball was still in the middle of the cage. In a bold move, Lorcaelyn Lichenlake, on of the elvish catchers, managed to dodge in the cage, pick up the ball despite the two angry orcs, and dodge out again and pass it to Elladan, the other catcher who ran deep in orcish territory. Turn 4 saw White Snake Eyez, an orcish blitzer, fail to bring Elladan (who got saved by his block skill) down, even after trying twice, and Elladan, dodging out with difficulty, ran to the opposite side of the pitch, misjudging the distance with his nearest opponent, whilst Lithaldoren could not dodge out to bring him protection. In turn 5, an angry White Snake Eyez tried again, to no avail, to block Elladan, and the orcs positioned themselves as strongly as they could to prevent him from reaching the line. Alas, their efforts proved useless, Elladan touched down, and the score was 0-1. Thanks to another high kick, Twist da Head off your Sister was able to get the ball. In addition, Daggael Riverbrook, a lineman, was knocked-out by Kveen, leaving the elves with only 8 players on the pitch, and properly surrounded by the orcs. Enggoth Sagerock tried to play his usual ball stripping game, but a failed dodge left him wriggling on the ground. Running forward, Twist da Head off your Sister tried to pass the ball to Wham! in your Face II, a blitzer, but fumbled, and Inksz failed to save it. turnover. Enggoth Sagerock then proceeded to throw Twist da Head off your sister on the ball, in the hope of pushing it in a better place, which partly succeeded. Alas, Lithaldoren failed his leaped pick-up, and this time, Inksz caught the bouncing ball. Chained pushed, he managed to get near Wham! in your Face II and to give him the ball, which the Blitzer then carried behind the line. 1-1. With only half a turn before half time, the Tree Huggers had to hope that Nuffle would favour them. Which is not exactly what happened, as the blizzard started to blow over the stadium. Still, a group of strong elves, with the invaluable help of Bregalad, managed to push Elladan within running distance of the touchdown zone. Lorcaelyn Lichenlake, substituting as a thrower, then picked the ball and handed it to him, although both the Sure Hands and the Catch skill had to be used, and Elladan managed to dodge through the ennemy lines and score. 2-1 at half time. The second half started with a rock thrown on the pitch, seriously injuring one of the Black Orc Blockers, Fear Da Tears, and prompting Danish_Dan, GlamRok's coach, to shout about being outbashed by elves. Alas, Sylien Acornpool's failure to pick up the ball brought the elves turn to a quick end. The orcs put real pressure on the elvish team, although still failing to do some real damage. Sylien Acornpool finally picked the ball, handing it off to Tokith who passed it to Lorcaelyn Lichenlake, who retreated slightly from the front line. And then, Daggael Riverbrook, having recovered, decided to avenge himself and KO'd Kizz, the fourth Blocker. The elves failed to protect the ball, though, and thanks to a blitz by Wham! In your Face II, the ball was thrown out of bounds, and touched back in an advantageous position for the orcs. Twist da Head off your Sister was then able to pick it up and start to progress, in a cage, towards the touch down line. Of course, Enggoth Sagerock then decided to leap after him and, although not bringing him down, stripped him of the ball. Elladan picked it up, but knocked himself out while trying to dodge out of T-Wrecks' grip. Running back, Twist da Head off your Sister managed to pick the ball up again. Once again, Enggoth Sagerock, although outnumbered, deprived him of the ball, but Sylien Acornpool failed to pick it up. And that is when the elves got a taste of their own medicine. Twist da Head off your Sister picked the ball up, ran, and passed it to Wham! in your Face, the fast moving blitzer, who ran deep in elvish territory, hopefully out of reach for Enggoth Sagerock. Alas, this was not the case, and a sprinting War Dancer managed to send him to the ground, although none of the Huggers was near enough to be able to pick the ball up. Wham! in your Face II got his bearings back, picked up the ball and scored. 2-2 at the start of turn 7. Apparently, Suger, the Huggers coach, was brilliant at kick-off, which would prove decisive later on. Both wardancers and the remaining catcher managed to go deep behind the orcish line, whilst Faudis Sagesky got his hands on the ball. The turning point of the game came when White Snake Eyez failed to push him to the ground. There was just one turn left, but the elves pushed some more brilliant play (still in the blizzard, remember). Lorcaelyn Lichenlake ran behind the scoring line, then Faudis Sagesky dodged to safety, handed the ball to Sylien Acornpool, who then passed it to the waiting catcher. There was no miracle during the last orcish turn, and a very disputed game ended on a score of 3-2, with the Tree Huggers winning the Dungeon Bowl. "Da orcs got one comment - we wuz robbed!" http://plasmoids.dk/pbem Wed, 08 Aug 2018 12:44:55 +0200 http://plasmoids.dk/pbemindex.php?1533725095 Match: The Avengers (2) vs. Morgul Maniacs (0) THE SPIKE CUP: (Kick off) With no inducements in play, no cards and nice weather, the numerically superior Morgul Maniacs chose to receive the kick off. The Avengers spread out across the pitch hoping to use their abundant standfirm skill (and the deathroller) to hold back the undead. The undead set up to smash down the left flank with their +AG ghoul set up deep. The dwarves kicked the ball deep and the dwarven crown out cheered the undead fans. The ball went directly to the star ghoul but the pressure of his first playoff game was a bit too much and he dropped the easy catch. (Turn 1) Hiding his embarassment the ghoul picked up the ball and ran to join his mates on the flank. The undead tried to push forward but only achieved a single knockdown. The dwarves started counter blocking but suffered an early double skull, however the encouragment from the crowd at the kick off crowd turned that early turnover into a double POW. This early momentum was crucial and led to three undead players knocked down and the AV9 Mighty Blow Wight taking a nap. The turn ended with another double skull but by then the dwarves had nice positioning. (Turn 2) The undead managed to get an early knock down and dodged a ghoul downfield should a pass emerge, however a failed GFI that would have protected the player from blitzes ended the turn early and stunned the potential receiver. Taking advantage, the dwarves knocked down most of the team, badly hurt the dauntless wight and finally sacked the +AG ghoul. (Turn 3) Lacking options the undead were forced to just stand players up in tackle zones. The ghoul was able to dodge through multiple tackle zones to recover the scattered ball, but in an exposed position and with only a 5% chance of staying upright against the inevitable blitz, the Ghoul threw a long bomb to his stunned teammate. The dwarves were able to capitalise managing to just get a player in range to put a tackle zone on the ball as well as stunning and KOing players, before finally having a dwarf lineman dodge free from a tackle zone, pass a GFI and pick up the ball. (Turn 4-8) The dwarves used their superior numbers and stand firm skill to protect, and at the speed of a glacier move the MV4 lineman 18 squares for a TD, and the +Str ghoul joined his teammates in the KO box. (Half time) Having just watched a dwarf lineman go end-to-end, and witnessed the dwarf head coach argue with the ref that the deathroller should stay on the pitch because "under clause 17b a player may not be sent off if that team has just scored while playing defense" most of the important undead players in the KO box refused to take the field. The demotivated undead kicked the ball out of bounds and the dwarven fans once again outcheered their dead rivals (Turn 9) Dwarves get 2 stuns and two knockdowns and establish a cage on the half way line. An undead mummy smashes through the cage and stands next to the dwarven runner. (Turn 10) The deathroller moves the mummy back out of the cage and the dwarven formation heads for the sideline. The undead do their best to contain the dwarf formation and slow their momentum. (Turn 11) Lead by the deathroller, the dwarves crash into the undead, knocking down many an injuring a zombie, The undead try to stem the tide but a one dice block results in a stunned skeleton. (Turn 12) The deathroller created a large enough hole for the dwarf offence to advance 6 squares up the field and back into the center, with an intact team able to screen the defenders away. The undead redeploy rapidly to try and contain the breakaway. (Turn 13) The dwarf runner heads up the pitch and to the other flank arriving safely in a cage. The undead once again rapidly redeploy and use a three player screen to try and hold off the runner from scoring. (Turn 14) The dwarves use their tackle skill to take out the ghoul blocking the route to the endzone and run in a second touchdown. The referee sends of the death roller and the more talented undead players return to the field. Once again the dwarven fans show their loud appreciation... though its hard to tell if its the game or the celebratory beer at this point. The undead try to get a quick passing play going, while the dwarves try to keep a clean sheet. The dwarves do what they can to shut down the offense but the undeniable talent of the +AG ghoul cannot be denied. The 'at the whistle' touchdown pass is right on target..... until a troll slayer rips the ball from the air and punts it into the crowd. The dwarven fans express their joy through drunken song but also financially with the dwarves comming away with the maximum possible 160K in gate revenue and the undead also takign home the maximum 120K meaning this is probably the most gate revenue in league history. During the celebrations one of the dwarf linemen was caught drinking an entire barrel of beer from the spike cup and afterwards appeared to have put on the muscle mass of a black orc. TLDR The undead team gave a good account of themselves but a couple of the gambles that would have almost certianly resulted in a touchdown if successful simply didn't come off. The failure of the talented undead players to return from KO's and the return of the deathroller made the second half one sided. http://plasmoids.dk/pbem Tue, 07 Aug 2018 09:34:06 +0200 http://plasmoids.dk/pbemindex.php?1533627246 Match: Mohagany Mohawks (5) vs. Tree Huggers (4) The teams left the defenses at home as the run and shoot offenses were on for this game. Game was decided by a failed dodge at the buzzer giving the underdogs a win in a meaningless game... 11 Pass completions and 9 TDs...you aren't going to see that everyday... http://plasmoids.dk/pbem Thu, 02 Aug 2018 12:13:53 +0200 http://plasmoids.dk/pbemindex.php?1533204833
