    When the Fall is All There is...

    Landwaker watches Glorcus and Patorclus II hobble out of the camp, their careers ended by smashed knees at the claws of the chaos dwarfs. The other eporcs are quiet as their comrades move out of view, and Doc leans in toward the coach. "The ladz could use a few words, LW..."

    "No," the coach replies coldly. "No more words, no more speeches. I've said what can be said, now we just need to do something."

    The halfling hesitates. "Don't you think..."

    "I think we're in last place with four matches left. I think they know that we need to do better. I think this team has likely seen its height, and now we're going down."

    Doc frowns. "How can you give up already?"

    "I'm not giving up. I'll fight till the end as best I can, and I'll probably stick with these eporcs at least until all the originals are gone. I'm just facing facts, and starting to think about the future." He looks to the north.

    It's hard to hold the line season after season. Starting to feel the same way about the pierats. But that's just the nadir before our glorious pie ship victory ;)

    Well it's hardly gloom and doom when we still have six superstars, I just felt a bit of fluff was overdue and that was what came out. Been a frustrating season but so it goes; I prefer pessimism as it allows for pleasant surprises.

    Extract from Abercrombie I read last night:

    -'Expect nothing and you won't be disappointed'. (Ferro)
    -'Expect nothing and you'll get nothing'. (Logen)

    Choose your side :)

    This season I've been Ferro in theory but have gotten Logen results. :eek:

    Our most notable achievement will probably be killing the league's greatest ghoul, which feels more sad than celebratory. :(

    So let's take a stab at optimism ... hey, plenty of room for improvement! :rolleyes:;):D

    How about "Aim for the stars but expect to hit your foot"?

    Nice, is that from the same barrel? I loved this one:

    - It seems we got off on the wrong foot.
    - I have only one that works.

    :D

    Might have been? I just made it up, but someone has to made something similar in the past.

    Also: :D

    Another season done, and it's a bit painful to reread the opening speech because it's been a bust both win-wise and fluff-wise. But once again the eporcs have come through surprisingly unscathed, with double-niggled Glorcus being the only real loss. Hopefully inspiration will return on the pitch and in the blog as the team returns to tier two; I can't say I'll regret missing Altdwarf much next season as it looks to be shaping up quite nastily, and Reikland looks like the more inviting of our possible destinations. We shall see...

    Season Eight
    DARK FLUFF RISING

    Excerpts from Still Here: Chronicles of the Life and Undeath of Kit Kavdaver, Erstwhile Elf

    (Volume XXX, Chapter 1, Section 1)

    Fallen from glory
    Yet still taunting hope lingers
    To draw out the doom


    It has been long since I wrote, but for lack of other pursuits I take up a new volume despite the flagrant futility. My investigation of my murder revealed nothing, and with the Blahville shut down my work as a compelled correspondent has faded as well; how strange that I would miss it. My sole consolation of late has been to reacquaint myself with the ancient Eastern art of "ku-hai" -- its rigid syllabic structure offers a comforting island of solidity in the aimless foggy seas of undeath and blank pages.

    Why Landwaker keeps me in his camp, I cannot fathom. He pays me no mind and orders me away if I make any attempt to question him. His eporcs faltered in the top tier of their competition and have now returned to Reikland. Though they remain a formidable force, their coach remains inconstant, mostly staying within his tent murmuring about dark obscurities like "Hidden Naresh" and "the shadow herd of Thaemor." I would hope that we do not all succumb to such madness... but hope has hardly been helpful.

    MATCH DAY ONE

    Begin with a win
    Also the unexpected
    A new star is born?


    Rookie lineorc Polydorcmas, first of his name, rolled +AG and it just isn't the eporc way to turn that down. :cool:
