    It was that or suffer a sudden migration of 4 players across the teams - IWTNH started with 13 players and Taxiderm with 14 (IIRC), after those 2 deaths it would have been at IWTNH 11 and Taxiderm 16! Given the way the rats were dying (2 in the first 2 turns) it seemed prudent to try and stem the flow somewhat...

    Not only did I pick up my first non guard/block skills after it but it taught me much on priorities of development and deployment.

    Sure my iron curtain of guard players is devastating on the LOS but I need to force dodges, risky passes and do a little square counting for point to point risk assessment.

    Also ag 3 players are bloody useless at passing without skills.
    One of the biggest helps I have at attempting elf ball in my Human team is my Strong Arm/Accurate thrower. If only he'd get +AG I'd be laughing.

    But how do your other players manage to catch it with their clumsy human hands?

    Put 9 of them in a square throw at the middle player, you'll get at least 2 chances to catch, 3 on average.

    My first game has been played! I got an beating both figurative and literal. Including one dead Ogre, who tripped and fell.

    RIP Tinkerbell, you shall be missed.

    Heh, fair guess but no, sure hands on a ghoul, but I have a zombie who I can't decide between dirty player and kick.

    I guess I need to decide what's important to me, touchdowns or corpses,

    You have my sympathies, fellow Ogre prodder. Tis a sad day indeed when one of the big lugs forgets to breathe. Good luck in your next match, and hope you can save up enough to buy a new bull soon.

    I can symphatize, having lost one lineman thusly and getting another player seriously injured. Dammit, they should look into softer alternatives to astrogranite!

    You're nagging. Shame on you! Shame!
    But seriously folks, Pier and Nullky Nulks are reliable folks from way back. It'll get sorted out soon.

    No doubt about that. I'll be over in that corner wearing my hat of shame.

    Much as I approve of the theory of using zombies to kick in heads I don't think it really works in practice. A good zombie is a zombie standing next to something with every likelihood of ripping off a few limbs - Ag2 and MA4 are never going to get you to the right place at the right time.

    Always liked the idea of a dedicated fouling ghoul on a undead team, just feels a bit wasteful.

    The Necromancer can only raise 1 zombie per game, regardless of how many players die.
