The Longthorns sat somberly in the locker room waiting on Dmdouble0. The coach entered with an expression that mirrored his team. “Alright Thorns. Nothing about our first pro season was what we were looking forward to,” Dmdouble0 stated. “We finished with 3 wins, but the last one was to expensive.” A boom echoed through the locker room as a locker door crumpled in under Bloody Thorn’s fist. Rage and violence simmered in her eyes. “Just tell which week we play orcs,” she demanded! The coach clinched his lips in silence. He wanted to say that’s not called for. We’re not here for violence and revenge. We’re here to win. When he thought of orcs he saw red to. This was Blood Bowl, not a game for the faint of heart. THESE were dark elves. They were smaller, and usually weaker then orcs, but just as vicious. He had scouted, signed, and developed the biggest meanest dark elves for a reason. After a moments silence he responded. “Breaking bones and killing is always our second goal. The first is winning.” He locked eyes with Bloody and continued “Tripping over skaven and anything that doesn’t contribute to offense or defense serves no purpose.” The anger drained from Bloody’s face as she thought back to their CL playoff lost to skaven. As the locker room calmed down Dmdouble0 continued’ “Looks like Mistress is getting a position with G’ulf Coast Sports. She’s off the pitch but she’ll be alright.” He glanced at Bloody as he continued, “Looking past the bloody orc carcasses we’ll leave on the pitch this coming season, let’s talk rookies. We were planning on calling up Valeyard until Mistress went down. Being that she was an invaluable member of the team, she must be replaced.” Grumbles rolled through the room. ” We’re not replacing her, just her amazing contributions,” the coach quickly announced. ” I believe I’ve found the perfect candidate. Arachnia Queen of the spider people and bride of Chaotica.
She’s got the skills we need. The following season I plan on book ending her agility. She’s gonna be the next Longthorns super star. No doubt about it. I just need you lunk heads to keep her in one piece. She’s a queen so give her her due respect. I’m still in negotiations with coach Wyatt but he’s given me a verbal. First season of the CL we fumbled through. Second we made the playoffs. First season of the Pros we held our own and got kicked in the teeth. Next season we think about Mistress and the new royalty in our ranks. We bloody up some orcs, and
Win the whole Bloody thing!!!”
The elves begin Seth and rage like orcs. Chanting and smashing. When there was nothing left to smash they broke into a rhythmic banging on lockers and stomping of boots. To that rhythm a chant began to rise slowly until it was a roaring battle cry.
