Causing Havoc in the old world since 2506

The Tlaqua Spacehoppers

It was the year 2516 when a Slann named Nautalan made his way out of the wetlands after his spaceship, The Battletoad Galactica, crash landed in the Dragonbath Swamps. Treking his way through the jungle, Nautalan stumbled onto a white sandy beach and in the distance on a beautiful peninsula he saw a gleaming temple-city of the Old Ones. On arriving, the temple-city (which he found out was the temple-city of Nahuontl) was in full celebrations as their newly reformed Blood Bowl team, the Nahuontl Natterjacks, had lifted silverware come the end of their first league season and and made it to the semi-finals of the HDWSBBL Super Bowl Championship. That was three long and sometimes very frustrating seasons ago, during which Nautalan had risen to the position of head assistant coach.

After the end of their most recent season and the fans had all gone home, Nautalan sat on the side of the Amphistadium’s pitch contemplating the team’s performance. Tripping Space Balls on a particularly strong brew of Ombongo that the distiller called Hop-no-Toad, Nautalan flopped onto his back and stared into the sky with unusually bulbous eyes. Losing himself as his consciousness wandered the astral plane of time and space, he drifted Northwards on the Plains of Eternia, reaching out with his senses. The smell of the ocean, distorted images of stone skulls then the deafening roar of the earth and the blurry remains of a massive building filled his mind. The roaring became more and more unbearable the closer he got until he abruptly woke (although this could have been due to the grounds keeper sticking Nautalan with the handle of his rake to see if he hadn’t croaked on the job!).
Unknown to Nautalan, head coach Axolotalan had felt the need to return to his lil’ pad on the island of Newt Xealand to work on some new plays and contemplate the direction the Natterjacks would take on their return to the HDWSBBL. In doing so it would give his assistant coach Nautalan the opportunity to fully coach his own team should he wish to. Naturally Nautalan jumped at the chance but he was given strict instructions to form his own team rather than coach the Natterjacks as coaching a team of rookies (especially when it comes to a wet, or rather mucous, behind the ears Slann team) is no easy task and would be a true test of what he learnt over the years.

After searching for what seemed like to infinity and beyond, Nautalan managed to source enough players to form a team. Transporting them back to the Dragonbath Swamps, Nautalan used his telepathic powers and force of will to raise his crashed ship up out of the pond weeds and murky waters. Now they had their own training ground to practice on and master their plays. During the course of the team’s drills, a young charismatic toad emerged who took lead of the players. Nicknamed “the Millennial Falcon” by his slannmates, he proved to be the fly in the ointment that brought the team together. On seeing the metamorphosis in his players, Nautalan deemed them to be ready and signed them up to the HDWSBBL. Being around the sport and it’s athletes had given Nautalan some of his own quirky superstitions regarding the game. Subconsciously wanting emulate the success of the Natterjack’s first season, Nautalan found himself migrating his way back to the shopping grounds of Marienburg and the sporting goods emporium that had sold Axolotalan the Natterjack’s uniform in order for him to purchase his own team’s kit. Now all Nautalan needed was a name for his team. In a nod of respect to his old coach, Nautalan named his new team the Spacehoppers after Axolotalan’s old disbanded team and after his hallucination on Ombongo, chose to revive the glory of the ruined temple-city of Tlaqua. By combing the two names, the Tlaqua Spacehoppers were spawned.
