Causing Havoc in the old world since 2506

The Riverside Rainbows

After years of watching the HDWSBBL Bob Hopeless had always dreamed of running his own blood bowl team and rise to glory like the great teams who have played in the league, however being only of 3′ 4″ in total height most people use him as a footstool or a bar table. After years of being mocked he heard about a famous chap who had came into a lot of money which he was using to buy teams in the HDWSBBL.

Bob could see it now, all he had to go was go to this chap, talk him over to helping him become coach of a famous team and all his dreams and aspirations would come true, instead of him being the home furniture it would be others who would be his.  A fire burned in his eyes and he headed off to the office and headquarters of the famous millionaire Harthur Daily. Funnily enough Bob had never actually seen Harthur on Sly Sports nor in magazines, he had only heard about him down the local pub, so to his shock and surprise he couldn’t believe it when he came face to face with the most famous man in the HDWSBBL was indeed a fellow Halfling.

“Now” said Harther, “What can I do for you?, I’m bloody busy as it is!”. Bob told Harther of his desire and lifelong dream. He did waffle on for much longer than Harther had wished for so with a sudden raise of halt to Bob to shut his mouth Harther gave him this response…..”Get Out you bloody good for nothing bum! What am I a bleeding charity?! Show the way out yourself and don’t let the F@*&ing door hit you on the way out!”

Down in the dumps Bob sat on his armchair at home for days, maybe weeks not uttering a word or even stuffing himself full of treats. Then a sudden banging came at his door and a letter fell through the letter box. Bob rushed and picked it up, he couldn’t believe it! it was from Harther Daily! He ripped open the letter and this was what followed:

Dear Blob, I must apologise for my rudeness in our meeting a few days ago. Some business opportunity were on the line and I had to bust my ass to get them through. So I considered your situation and have decided the following, you have no real experience in Blood Bowl other than the Sunday leagues which is nothing compared to the big leagues or the HDWSBBL at that matter. But luck would have it I do have a chance for you to prove yourself. The coach for the Riverside Rainbows, Doug McLongjogging sadly and brutishly cut his head off whilst combing his hair, and therefore I require an immediate replacement and have thought of you. They are a very green team which I brought out for a bet but I think they could churn me a great deal of money. So take the role and prove your worth, perhaps I may even promote you if this job goes well. Come by the ground as soon as you can. Yours Harther Daily, CEO.

Bob couldn’t believe his eyes, he dashed and packed his bag as soon as he could cramming all his play books and how to play books while getting his playing gear in as well. Dashing down to the ground he soon met up with Harther and the rest of the team ready to great their new head coach. “Now Blob, meet the Rainbows, they are prepared to give you a chance to prove your salt and show you a thing or two about how Halflings really play blood bowl!” Bob’s head dropped and he thought to himself, “He never said they were Halflings……”.
