The Phantom Menaces (Rakysh, Necromantic) 2-0 Barebone Bareboners (Skydancer, Khemri)
Ra'kish the Beastman-manager of the Phantom Menaces had really gone overboard on the pre-game sacrifices. Three draws last season had been acceptable, but this time he needed a win. As such, nothing was to be left to chance.
Skydancer got thoroughly Nuffled. Plenty of KOs and two injuries from a heretofore entirely pacifistic Flesh Golem (finally got the levels of pre-match drugs right, apparently) meant that despite kicking possession away, the Menaces were able to score in turn eight of the first half. Apart from a rather nice (if I say so myself) crowdsurf on a mummy in the first turn, I didn't really do anything to deserve this, but apparently my players were armoured in the righteousness of Nuffle. The Khemri's bad luck was compounded by the fact that not one of their four KOs woke up for the second half, meaning the full complement of the Menaces faced off against only three mummies and three skeletons. A ghoul ran in a two-turn touchdown, and a few players returned. After the kickoff, despite managing to cage successfully, the Khemri were unable to make much progress due to the large piles of zombies in the way.
Skydancer was a pleasure to play with, and was very good about the way the dice went. I think I got a level up or two and I definitely have a Flesh Golem to invest in, so could someone validate? Thanks.
