Hello Dere Sportin’ Fans, it me Bob ToeKruncher an’ me assistant Pat Lightfingers. ‘ere we are in da fine sportin’ township of Nez. We be bringin’ the Cabalvision broadcast of an excitin’ game today between da GobStoppers, a personal favorite o mine and some chickies in feathers called Bust Loose from down souf somewhere.

Actually Bob, Bust Loose were Albion Cup Champions of 2521 and are generally feared both on and off the Pitch. They have had some very impressive victories lately including a 5-0 thrashing of the Altdorf Underlurkers and an incredible 456 yards rushing against Half-foot Shamblers.

Whatever Pat, ta me dere jus a bunch o girlies running around in feathers an…. Umm…. Well……. Ok, I can see why dey are popular……oh yea….

There are a number of last minutes roster changes to the Bust Loose squad submitted by the coach Dihenydd. It appears many of the top flight stars are all out with a sudden case of stomache flu. Coach Dihenydd is blaming it on eating at a certain eating establishment in the Prime Docks ward of the town. It also appears that the owner of the restaurant is a 2nd cousin twice removed to the Gobstopper assistant coach. Purely coincidence in my mind.

Right you are, Pat, dere ain’t no excuses fer choosin’ bad meat. I ‘member playing against Dihenydd in 2521 I don ‘member him bein’ so whiny. Always was a sportin’ type, in fact I sees him spendin’ a lot of time before da match askin’ how da Ref’s family were doin’.

There are some interesting additions to the Bust Loose roster. Helmut Wulf and his trusty chainsaw is in the lineup, along with several of the, rather ‘less skilled’ junior members of the team.

Hold on dere, dere is jus’ as much skill to deliver a hammerblow to the nose as tossin’ da ball thru da air.

Well I guess we’ll just have to wait and see Bob. I hope the many Bust Loose fans will appreciate this new brand of Bloodbowl from their team.

Whatever Patsie, and dere’s da kickoff, Gobstoppers deliver da ball to Anaix who…

+++++

Well, dat’s da end o da first half, and I musts say what a fine diplay of cunnin’ on da pitch.

Well, by cunning, I assume you mean the Bust Loose tactic of swarming goblins on the pitch and delivering multiple boots to the head Bob?

Exacterly Pat. Dat kind of teamwork is what makes a team speshul.

I was especially intrigued how Anaix of the Bust Loose team turned around with a minute left in the first half. Instead of trotting in for the game’s first touchdown she proceeded to run back to the sideline to push Bibbsnot Grunt into the stands.

Righto Patty, and de Bust Loose fans were more den ‘appy to rip Bibbsnot into pieces. It gonna take days to find all o’ him!

I do find it interesting that Anaix forgot to run the rest of the way into the endzone for the score though Bob.

Not at all! She was so taken wid da thrill o da game.

Whatever Bob, still we are a 0-0 and by my count the Gobstoppers have only 11 players left for start of the 2nd half.

Yeah, Patio and I sees dat Helmut Wulf is linin’ up fer da kickoff

++

And with 7 minutes left in the second half the Gobstoppers will not be able to continue after that beautiful touchdown pass by the Bust Loose Amazons! After a very bloody start to the second half with Helmut Wulf chewing up no fewer than 4 Gobbo’s before tripping and falling on his own chainsaw.

Rightio Pat, dat was a beoootiful play dat brought tears ta me eyes!

So you say Bob, but it was a very interesting beginning with the carunching of all 10 gobbo’s in short order leaving the lone Troll in the centre of the pitch playing with some feathers. I am especially intrigued how the ref put the whistle away in the second half and called no fouls at all against Bust Loose.

Ol’ school Bloodbowl right dere. Let da players do da policin’ I say.

Still once all the gobbo’s were scraped off the field, it was a beautiful TD pass to go up 1-0. It’s a wonder how Bust Loose dropped all those passes in the first half but suddenly got it all together for that one play.

Must be da rain dat was effectin’ dere game. Still, a verra excitin’ finish.

Right Bob, the Gobstoppers are unable to take to the field as only the Troll is currently able to stand. The Gobstopper coach went to talk to game officials and was asked to speak to someone in the locker room immediately after. So far no one has been able to find him.

Must be takin’ a sudden vacation.

Right Bob, at the bottom of the river by my guess. Anyways, so the Final score is Bust Loose 1, Gobstopper 0 with the goblins being force to concede with time remaining in the second half due to lack of players. Stay tuned to your Cabalvision Broadcasting Service for post Game analysis from Aldorf with Gary Shoeless and Booma Eviserator.

Shortly before the game, a figure wrapped in the clothes of a man of the deep deserts of Araby arrives at the gate, drawing curious stares from passerby. Only the stranger's eyes are visible, and the heavy cloth obscures any indication of figure. All that you can see is that the person is tall with grey eyes.

The mysterious figure seeks out whoever looks to be in charge.

"I believe you have a box for me?" he whispers, hoarsely.

Coach Dihenydd comes trotting over after Tom has a word in his ear. He leaves behind a rather shaken referee for today's match.

"Thank you sirs for expressing an interest in our little team. As you can see the pitch is a little on the worn side. However I was able to set aside a small box for your enjoyment of the match. Let me escort you"

Dihenydd speaks idly of the intracies of today's matchup, but wants to point attention to the stadium in general.

"Its often the case with the smaller, less travelled venues. Things wear out, contracts with CBS and ABC get forgotten, vendors rates are upped but quality goes down. Its often the case with the tier 3 and 4 stadiums. No worries there."

"It would be good however if someone was in the right frame of mind, to attempt to shore it up a bit. I've had a look at the foundations and they are solid, the stonework under the pitch and they are uncracked, well for the most part. Just needs the right sort of guy to take it over. Fix it up right proper and its a Tier 2 Stadium attracting the right sort of crowd, and of course, sponsors. Seems no one can find who actually owns it now. Looks like the last 3 rentals went straight to city coffers instead. Sure is a shame. A mighty shame." Dihenydd shakes his head sadly.

"Still, good enough for a little tumble today? Ah, here's the best box in the house."

Dihenydd points to the shaky structure at the top of the public stands. "No worries, she'll hold up. Just a couple wormholes is all. I had the boys set up a nice umbrella for the rain and there's a cold stash of Orca-Cola in the back."

"Oh, and I, er, took the liberty of of inviting two of our injured players to sit up here with you. You know, to explain the, umm intracies of the match to you."

"Enjoy the match, be sure to stop by later and I'll introduce you to some other members of the team."

....

"Oh, just for interest, the curtains do work."

"Thank you." the visitor croaks. "But I think that won't be necessary. It's not that I don't trust you to keep a secret. It's just that it would be... inconvenient if my identity were to be revealed, and my mother taught me that one can never be too careful..." Whoever-it-is clearly doesn't speak like this normally, and is disguising their voice. "But I will enjoy the company, thank you."

After the match, your girls reveal to you that the stranger sat calmly for the duration of the match. From time to time, another question would be asked, usually about themselves, their past and how they came to the Old World. The figure revealed that he had a passing interest in the team, and was excited by the fact that they would be spending time in town. When the Amazons scored, a laugh emerged from under the wraps.

At the end of the match, the visitor thanked each of the players in the box for their company, and expressed confidence that with their return to play the team would be able to achieve great things. Then the stranger moved quickly away, into the crowds as they streamed out of the stadium.

Dihenydd sits back in his chair, chomping one of the fine Moot cigars. He is cleaning his nails on his giant meathook sized hands with a small sharp dagger. He listens to every word the girls report.

"Ah, so he's a mysterious one is he?"

"I hate mysteries, they get you killed. CLOAK," he bellows, "get in here".

The figure slides inside and closes the door on the retreating Amazons, the enegetic partying from the main room of the Dusty Drum disappears with the girls.

"Ya think you could find that peasant boy what delivered that letter the other day?"

The Cloak merely looks at Dihenydd as if to suggest its high point of idiocy to suggest otherwise. He/it fixes Dihenydd with a stare that would cause a tree to blush.

Dihenydd didn't survive 23 bloodbowl seasons, nor learn to coach an Amazon team by ever showing fear. He stares back and its the Cloak who turns away and exits by the same door.

The coach reaches under the table and pulls out a nice sized bat. He slams it with considerable force on the table, which shatters.

Turning to the small bundled and cowering form in the corner, Dihenydd screams. "Now! Who the F@(% paid you to poison my girls?!" He brings the bat down, hard, on the knees of the figure who screams in pain. It starts to babble amidst the crying.

The peasant boy is found within 30 minutes, caught playing in one of the many side streets crisscrossing the poorer district. He quickly tells all, well aware of the dangers of holding back.

"He had a long, loose brown robe on, with the hood up like you would do if it was raining. He was kind of thin underneath, I could see. It was dark out, so I dunno what his face looked like or anything." He glances nervously at the Cloak, who shifts slightly, as though he was going to spring on the serf. "I don't know, I'm telling you! C'mon, would I be stupid enough to lie?" The boy looks like he's going to burst into tears.

"He... he gave me a silver to take the message to you. Me dad said he'd never seen so much money in his life. I don't have it anymore. We spent it on a feast. Meat and everything, you should have seen it!" He sniffles, then continues.

"Whoever it was, he ran real fast when he left. The next day I found out that one of the gangs had tried to hurt him. They got banged up real bad instead." He glances around again, nervous. "That's all I know, I swear! Like my dad says, I'd say it to Sir Giles or to the Lady or to anyone! Can I go now?"

"Good, good. All good." Dihenydd chews another Moot cigar while washing his hands. He wipes his hands on a towel leaving small bloody spots.

"Ok, so's the kid knows next ta nuffin. No worries. Go, give him a job, sponge-boy or something. Oh, and give him a hat." Dihenydd tosses Cloak a cap with the Bust Loose logo on it.

He points to the corner, "be sure to toss the mess to the pigs, they need a reward too."
