Obituary: Elison Crownstar, Catcher for the Loren rangers

It is with a heavy heart here in the HDWSBBL offices that we have to report the death of The Loren Rangers star catcher, Elison Crownstar.

During one of the bloodiest nights in HDWSBBL history, Crownstars reign as the best player the league has ever seen came to an end! It was during the Rangers 7-0 Victory against The Man Eaters when this occurred. During a match, which had already seen four other Rangers maimed or killed, Crownstar was brought to the ground by a pack of Snotlings. They then proceeded to jump on him until his team mates could get them off. Officials are currently reviewing the footage to determine which Snotling fouled him to death. Update – It was the Snotling called Dim!

At the time of his passing, Crownstar was recognised as the best player that the HDWSBBL has ever seen. For three and a bit seasons, he has defined the standard of what a Super Star is. We can only imagine how high he would have set the bar for greatness should he have continued playing.

Below are some facts and figures from this young elves amazing career. All stats are correct at time of Death.

  • Top player in the leagues history with 128 SPP (that’s 4.3 SPP per game and 2.3% of the leagues total)
  • Top scorer in the leagues history with 36 Touchdowns (that’s 1.2 TDs per game and 5.3% of the leagues total)
  • Debuted at the start of the 2506/07 season.
  • One of the founding 11 of The Loren Rangers.
  • Was part of the team that won the Open Scramble 2506/07.
  • Was part of the team that went to the XLVII Blood Bowl Tournament.
  • Scored the most TDs in the 2506/07 season.
  • Scored the most TDs in the Open Scramble 2507/08.
  • Was awarded with the best player award in the Championship I.
  • Was the first player to become a Star Player and a Emerging Star.
  • Was the first player in the league to reach 100 SPP.
  • Was the first player to score 20 Touchdowns and then the first to score 30.
  • Has scored an amazing five hat tricks in his career
  • Was the top scorer for the Loren Rangers
  • Only missed two games in his career
  • With the Loren Rangers, he qualified for a HDWSBBL Championship Tournament three times (I, II and III) and was runner up in the Open Scramble 2507/08

In addition to the above, Crownstar will be remembered for his spectacular plays on the pitch and the season defining race to be the top player with Manhunter Blitzer Moist Von Lipwig. It is safe to say that he is the best player the league has seen that has not won a player of the season award.

If you wish to pay your respects, a shire has been created by fans at The Loren Riverdome and the HDWSBBL has already received petitions to create a Hall of Fame for the single reason that Corwnstar can be indicted.

So far, no official comment has been made by the Rangers. After the match, the usually talkative Jordan Hawk had nothing to say as he left the area.

For completeness, his full statistics are below.

RIP Crownstar. 2484-2509

  1. God speed Crownstar. You where a worthy opponent.

    Although you have been one of the biggest pains in our asses over the years, you will be missed.

    You didn’t deserve an end like this, if anything we should have been the ones putting the boot in!

    1. Are you certain he was a Blood Bowl Player? One solitary casualty in thirty one games…thats what I call a poor Hit rate! He’d be lucky to be taken on as a Rookie Zombie if you ask me! 😉

  2. Normally I would say something snarky about Elves, but instead, I’d like us all to remember it wasn’t just Mr Crownstar who lost his life that night.

    At last count 9 players were killed on that night, and those of us left behind are going to have to pick up the pieces and move on.

    I will personally miss Herbert West, who died last thursday when propelled into the Skaven side of the crowd and was promptly gnawed to death.

    Even though he joined the team late, he was in many way’s one of our best players, always eager to get stuck in and give it his all, and I think his attitude to life and the game helped keep our spirits up during our terrible perfomances this season.

    The whole team is reeling* from his loss** and I’m without him in our back line, there’s a large gap that’s going to take hard work to fill.

    * well, those who aren’t mindless abominations anyway
    ** Technically speaking I ressurected him from anima materia over the weekend, but he’s decided to retire as a player and continue as an Assistant Coach, and I’m not going to argue with him – the process never quite brings the body back as it was… so he’s still not back in the team.

  3. Rumours are spreading of a new fan club called the DIM wits in honour of this new might blood bowl rising star! 😉
