    My elves fragility is slowly catching up with them. 2 deaths, a -mv on a thrower and mng my reward for daring to draw.

    There goes my 200k of spare gold. Without a much softer next season I can imagine me getting into journeyman purgatory, that means restart time. I guess I'd go high elves, but maybe something more capable of actually making murder death in the enemies ranks.

    Well, I'm still fully manned for now and one guard died and another -mv but I was blessed in that my kick wrestle lineman rolled a double, I'm pondering guard, as every double I've taken in the team has been guard.

    Normal skill roll :( Fend it is then. Not a single Double or Statup on Marriage Potential so far! Also, due to Hols, I'll be sitting out next season, I've Z'ed the team in the sheet.

    For CPD's benefit, my game-tieing action wasn't quite as bad as 4%...

    Pick up 5+ - Dodge 5+ with dodge skill - Go For It 2+ = 15.432% w/o TRR

    You don't really need doubles on norse. Guard on linemen is ok, but other than that there are so many great normal rolls for each class that it's fine. Your kick chap could have tackle, on the basis that he'll be behind the front line anway - you could use him as a sweeper.

    Little over 1/8 chance, eh? It's almost guaranteed!

    AG3 with dodge is 1/9 chance to fail but it always seem to bloody happen.

    Well timed AG3 dodges is how I keep my non-elf teams competitive.

    Marriage Potential do seem to have developed a habit of AG3 dodging away at just the right moment, especially when in base-to-base with some MB pieces...

    But yes, still wasn't expecting that score to happen! Esp as I'd not spotted the Diving Tackle on the SS goblin...

    So my AG5 MA4 Sure Hands, Kick Off Return nurgle rotter (yes, rotter) just hit 80spp. Failed to roll a double, which means yet again no dodge, sure feet, or pass for him.

    Any thoughts what to get him? I'm thinking big hand for stealing the ball from cages (guaranteed 2+ pickup with Sure Hands reroll) or possibly Pro for extra silliness. I basically use him as a ball launching machine for trick/desperate plays, or as possible ball handler if I'm not facing anything that can crack a nurgle cage too quick, and I'm in no rush to score.

    Oh, he has four niggles, just fyi. And decay.

    KTHX!

    MA4 means he's not going to be able to do much cage sneaking without being right next to it, and having 4 niggles right next to a cage probably means being pretty heavily targeted - I'd go for block just to keep him alive a little longer.

    Lets think about this, he can cover the entire backfield with KOR and mv4, but delivering the ball to anyone is an issue.

    You want him to die to reduce bloat, but you'd feel bad retiring him. the answer is quite simple. PassBlock. His speed doesn't matter, pass block further exaggerates the nurgles many auras.

    This is a rotter though, so lacks the aura - although the standing next to someone and jogging their arm thing always works.

    Pass Block is agility isn't it? Otherwise he'd have leap. :(

    Ah, I thought it was a 6+ on the pick-up... fair enough.

    A 1-1 draw against Rumpel's Unseelie Accords gives me division F. Tier 2 here I come... where I hope to finally get some inducements in my favour. ;-)

    Your Skillfu is weak. It's G. AG5 passblock is a serious interception hazard too.

    It's the fact he has four niggles which amuses me. And decay. I've never seen such a player!

    Just a footnote, my adventures with the Rotters in the stunty league and the murdering I got from Janek have made me long to try the Nurglites. It's currently full but if anyone steps down I call dibs.
