Causing Havoc in the old world since 2506

Nachthaften Nightlords

Awoken in 2512 from their immortal slumber by the fervent cheers of sycophantic servants watching Blood Bowl, the vampire lords of the Von Nachthof family took a keen interest in the HDWSBBL of the Old World. Following the World Championship Superbowl VI Lord Marek Von Nachthof believed that:

“If a band of lycanthropes, mindless fools and vile creations could reach the Superbowl surely the Vampire Lords will reach the heights of the championship!”

Glory, blood and admiration were at stake and he knew he needed a coach who was experienced, someone who had faced the dead before and was not afraid of such a task – Dr Viktor Nekromortis.

It was a miserable dark and rainy night as Dr Viktor Nekromortis climbed into his elongated black coach to travel back after the HDWSBBL Superbowl VI. After 2 days and nights of furious tactical experimenting there was no apparent solution to the lost match and he slumped over his desk into a deep and restless sleep. Viktor awoke to find tall pale man, dressed in a long black cloak, with large elongated teeth standing in his surgery who said nothing but stared at the OWC trophy glinting in the moonlight. Without a word and with lightning speed the man leapt over the table and sunk his fangs into Viktor’s neck. The cry made the Universal Horrors come to his aid only for the vampire to stop them dead in their tracks with a simple glance. A deal was struck between the vampire and the Doctor. Lord Von Nachthof would fund the ‘Horrors to travel the Old World honing their skills and their creator would stay to coach the new vampire team of the immortal Nachthaften Nightlords.

In season 2513 Dr Viktor Nekromortis was reviewing his first season with the ‘Nightlords. He realised that he had been easily tempt by the offer of coaching superior players and to breakthrough with new research on immortality. He could barely believe that he was now sitting in the Grand Hall in Castle Nachthof looking and smiling at the NWC trophy that he had won with his team. The Superbowl and the NWC matches had been truly violent but as part of the post season celebrations the vampires had been allowed to drink the blood dry from the pitch….not to mention the cheerleaders. As the nights celebrations moved on “The Doc”, as he was now commonly known, was called to Lord Marek’s private chambers in the castle.

Entering the crowded room fell silent Lord Marek greeted him fondly giving Viktor a glass chalice containing a suspiciously thick deep red wine. Toasting all that had been achieved the vampires offered Viktor a new contract with the Nightlords for as long as he would want it. The grim physician realised the chance for unending glory and (un)sporting redemption was in front of him. The choice was simple, with a gracious nod and sly smile he agreed. Vampires and mortals drank but as the cup left Viktor’s lips and he knew that something was dreadfully wrong. He swayed. He couldn’t breathe. Grasping at his collar his vision blurred as he slumped to the floor.

The Doc lay motionless. No breathe and no heartbeat could be found but Viktor’s eyes flicked open and he stood back up. Reborn with the immortality he had set out to find all those years ago Viktor now trains the Nightlords as one of their own. Coaching the Nightlords to move with eerie ease past players, entrance their opponents with a glance or simply hit others with unmatched ferocity. Unsuspecting human ‘volunteers’ are easily gained through the towns surgery and are hypnotically enthralled to Viktor’s every whim with unwavering compliance.

HDWSBBL - Did You Know

After the success of the Pitrat Challenge Cup during the 2507/08 season, Netslay had announced that nearly one million pitrats had been sold during the competition. A record amount, however reports are that the owner of Netslay simply rigged the results to gain more money. Proof of this is yet to be found.
