In an historic development, the League and the BBPU (Blood Bowl Players Union) agreed to a new
contract. The two year long Lock Out has been lifted! Blood Bowl games will be played again!
Details of the contract are unknown, but sources say that after big up front cash payments to the
BBPU lawyers, the Players have agreed that in exchange for their Immortal Souls, they will be able
to buy beer from the stadium concessions at cost plus a small handling fee. Fans are expected to
return the games in droves as the replacement sport of Women's Snotling Ball never really caught on
outside of Lustria.
The featured game of Opening Night was the inter-family squabble of the reformed Apocalypse Drow
Redux vs the Lords of Lorien. The game was closer than the 3-1 score indicated, but it was clear
that the Woodelves were more than a little rusty as they repeatedly dropped open catches and
tripped over their own fabulously oversized shoes. (perhaps the curled toes with the bells attached
were not such a good idea)
#2 Lineelf gained +1 MA
#3 Lineelf learned Guard
#5 Lineelf gained +1 MA (yes that's right I rolled 2x 6+4s)
#8 Lineelf became a Leader
#16 Misses a week
Commentary from da Coach: I was successfully able to whore for many many points,
unfortunately the 2 MA increases kind of dampened the 4 skills I received. My cards were
Inspiration and Magic Hand of Jark Longarm which went unused. Cory, as a harbinger
for the game to come, rolled a one for cards, which ended up being Get 'Em Lads. Game was
relatively close, as I marched down and scored, his catcher scored easily, I score again. On his
counterattack he failed the critical go-for-it that would have sprung his catcher for another score
and I wrote "game over" in my notebook.
