The Nibble Big 10 is Formed!
Deep in the heart of the brutal land of "Pencil-Vania", exists an immortal Coach known only as "Joe." He looks out over the ominous mountains that surround his valley, searching for the Coach who one day might claim his throne. His team of Lions have dominated the land for as long as anyone can remember, besting all challengers on the Blood Bowl pitch. But the winds of change are sweeping across these hills, and a new band of Coaches hope to stake their claim on this title... Lord of these mountains, King of the Lions! Welcome to the Nittany Blood Bowl League (NiBBL)!
Season 2: Week 4 plus Bonus Coverage
Mon, Dec 5 2011 11:26 | Season 2
Ba-Zerka and the Villians of Yore already got us started on week 4, and now that the rest of the games have been played, let's have a look back at the week that was!
First up were the two undead teams in a match that would once and for all determine who is the most eeeeeevil. The Ashen Fist traded blow after blow with Mr. Spikey and the Gang... and after the foreplay, they actually played some Blood Bowl! The prediction the two teams would pummel each other to a powdery past was not too far off. NINE total casualties in this one folks. But in the end, the Ashen Fist emerged victorious with a 2 to 0 result. Qetu the Evil Doer, the massive Khemri Tomb Guardian, even scored his first career touchdown! Mr. Spikey's two Mummies have both picked up the Guard skill. So remember, if either one of them get close to you, they DO NOT want to be your friend!
The next match was played between the Wood Elves and the Orcs. Grrr ooo.. puppie controlled the tempo for the majority of the match. Whoever said Orcs couldn't dance, never saw these puppy munchers in action! They were making the Wood Elves look like Twig Elves! But when the Woodland Rashes' backs where against the wall, they turned to the only who could save them! A woman! Wait, wait, wait... seriously? A woman? I refuse to write any more... blah, blah, blah, Nightshade did this, Nightshade did that, Nightshade won the game... and the Wood Elves get their first victory of the season by a score of 2 to 1. That b*tch sure can play Blood Bowl though.
Finishing up the week were the Dragon Horde and the disease spreading Stirland Swamp Things. The heavyweight match-up between the mighty Kroxigor and the powerful Nurgle Beast was all hype as they rarely squared off on the pitch. The disappointed and angry crowd even rioted in a pitch invasion, demanding their money back! The remaining 9000 spectators got to see the Lizardman team show off their scoring prowess to the tune of 3 touchdowns, and the Nurgle team send Lizard after Lizard to the injury box! And then mysteriously, all 9000 onlookers came down with some sort of illness. Coincidence? Check back in week 5 to see if the Swamp Things have 9000 more Twitter followers!
For the second straight week, two teams were so anxious to do battle on the blood bowl field that they kicked off the week early! Or as I like to call it, premature e-jock-ulation! Leading the charge were the Uber-jock Norsemen! I mean, come on, there is no way those guys aren't juicing like Jose Canseco! And sure enough, they racked up another 4 casualties and yet another death! But the Woodland Rashes caused 3 casualties of their own thanks to their rising Treeman star Black Locust! The Wood Elves also brought their rookie Wardancer Belladonna (I think I want to puke!) to the party. When the final whistle blew, the Rashes scratched their way to a 3 to 0 victory. But Ba-Zerka shrugged off the loss and immediately sent word to their next opponent Mr. Spikey that he would be raping and pillaging their entire team come week 6. When head coach Robu was told Mr. Spikey was an Undead team, he said he didn't care! And that's why we love Blood Bowl!
The rest of the week 5 is open for business! The first match will pit the undefeated Dragon Horde up against the skillful Villians of Yore. The Dark Elf coach will stop at nothing in order to claim the honor of being the first to beat the slippery Lizards! The Ashen Fist will play host to the Orc team in yet another potential slug-fest. The second place Khemri need a win to keep pace for the top spot in the league! And Grr ooo.. puppie... well, they probably want more puppies! Lastly, we have an intriguing match-up between two teams that just love to drop the elbow on fallen opponents! Both the Stirland Swamp Things and Mr. Spikey will foul and foul often. I'd be surprised if the Refs even show up for this one!
Have at it everyone! May Nuffle watch over you!
