Season 3 – Week 28 – The Daemon Returns while the Snakes run out of luck

This week saw the final Semi-Final matches of the season take place. After 27 weeks of gaming we where down to the final 4 teams who had made it through to the Semi-Finals of the Hunts Havoc 2508/09.

The Corsairs took on the Man Eaters in a brilliant display of North vs (stand-in) South Champions. There where limbs flying as the Dark Elf front line tore through the assembled mass of Snotlings. Rarely a hit went though without a Snotling leaving the league in a little wooden box. The main instigator of this violence was Takarath Balefire who once again played like he was possessed. We don’t know how he manages to channel these spirits but it helped him score 4 Touchdowns and cause 2 Casualties (Once of which was a sweet decapitation on a Snotling). This personal best broke the record for the best performance in a single game by an individual, a record that had stood unbeaten for over 2 seasons!

The Man Eaters didn’t totally roll over though as they managed to kill one of the Corsairs. The Corsairs have taken this in their stride and are fully confident that when they play in the final in two weeks they will come out on top.

The Reavers did the unthinkable this week and ended the reign of the Lustrian Snake Queens. Just when everybody thought that there was no end to their dominance and they would be the first team to win the triple-crown of HDWSBBL Championships they where crudely eliminated by the Dark Elves.

Obviously bitter about their loss in the ZombWay Semi-Finals the other week the Reavers used every trick in their book to take down the Queens. At one point their new Assassin managed to stab one of the Lineswomen straight through the heart causing instant death. In the final stages of the match the Snake Queens showed signs of a total rout and the Reavers ran home two successive Touchdowns to make their point.

The Snake Queens final undefeated streak lasted an impressive 10 games, smashing the previous record of 7 held by the Loren Rangers. The Snake Queens are desperate for revenge so it is wise of Ragnars Swift Velocity to watch out when they face off in the final of the ZombWay Competition in a few short weeks.

There is now a week’s break before the Finals begin. Keep a close eye on the News section for any last minute updates. Of course stay tuned here to the Warzone for any gossip or slander as it occurs.

  1. This is where I would make some witty comment about Amazons like to go down, but I cannot be bothered!

    If Balefire does manage to top Roeder as the best player for this competition I am lodging a formal complaint. I am sure it is against the HDWSBBL Rules to play with a demonically possessed player. Now let me see…..*Looks for Rule Book*..No, that is my beer…..Nope, that is the Rangers Playbook…. Never mind, I know my rights. Dammed cheating Elves, they are all the same.

  2. – “Dammed cheating Elves, they are all the same.”

    As the coach of the Innsmouth Shadows, I totally agree with the above sentiments. All elves are pointy earred cheating gits, and I would know, having played every single elf team in the league.

    Oh, and as for the rules query about possessed players, I checked at the start of the season, it’s apparently totally legal to field players: Possesed by Daemonic entities, Cursed with Lycantropy or Vampirism, Multiple Heads or a personal odour so strong that it has gained full sentience.

    It NOT legal however to summon daemons onto the pitch during play, raise dead buried underneath the field during a drive, have players clone themselves through badly understood science or anything else that would break the 11-men-aside-as-long-as-the-ref-is-looking rule.

    Hope that clears things up.

  3. Hey you necromantic moan about us beautiful folk cheating but a least we don’t have an complexion that makes an troll blush! And all that raising the dead mojo surely there is something wrong with that?

    And as for the Corsairs, I heard that some idiot fan called Balefire a “Wood Elf” and he soon took to the stands and ripped the chap apart! I didn’t really get why he was so worked up about it but just goes to show that’s why they are doing well.
    No one wants to touch them.

  4. “Hey you necromantic moan about us beautiful folk cheating but a least we don’t have an complexion that makes an troll blush! And all that raising the dead mojo surely there is something wrong with that?”

    That’s not a blush on the Troll, Jordan, that’s his opponents blood.
    And as for raising the dead? That’s the easy part.
    I’m frankly more worried about making dark pacts with gods whose names were not meant to spoken by human tongues, who live in places man is not meant to go, and whose merest existence is a thing that man is just not meant to know.

    Don’t even get me started on the Non-Euclidian properties of my stadium, damn thing started to rain frogs during the Manhunters Game… oh wait, you know about that as you were there.

    I wouldn’t mind the weather so much, but the damn thing’s underground.

    Its not like we all worship the Nuffle, the God of Bloodbowl or anything! He can be a real mean son of a bitch (just ask the Manhunters!).
