    It would be quite the turn of events if the Orciad turned their backs on Big Crunch. They are the most formidable team we've had in these parts, yet. What are your plans then going forward?

    Another disappointing season in Altdwarf, but the eporcs added two more Legends to their roster:

    [​IMG]

    (The latter portrait isn't quite right but I ran out of patience). After 102 matches the team is as strong as ever but I find myself tired of Blood Bowl these days; after three years it's time for a good long break, and maybe when I return Blood Bowl 2 will inspire me more than it has thus far. If Big Crunch is still going I'll probably have to bring the eporcs back for an encore, but who knows, this might be all for them. It's been a fun run and though this blog has faded from its glory days when I spent hours on posts and eagerly awaited reactions, it's brought me a lot of enjoyment (often more than actually playing) and kept me going longer than I would have without it. And now for a suitable sendoff...

    THE EPORCS SET SAIL

    There lies the port; the vessel puffs her sail:
    There gloom the dark, broad seas. My Orciad,
    Souls that have toil'd, and wrought, and fought with me—
    That ever with savage smiles took
    The thunder and the sunshine.

    The lights begin to twinkle from the rocks:
    The long day wanes: the slow moon climbs: the deep
    Moans round with many voices. Come, my friends,
    'T is not too late to seek a newer world.
    Push off, and sitting well in order smite
    The sounding furrows; for my purpose holds
    To sail beyond the sunset, and the baths
    Of all the western stars.

    It may be that the gulfs will wash us down:
    It may be we shall touch the next world
    And see the great Hectorc, whom we knew.
    Tho' much is taken, much abides;
    And that which we are, we are;
    One equal temper of heroic hearts,
    Tested by time and fate, still strong in will
    To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield.

    THE END
    ?

    Thanks for reading.

    The Orciad have certainly always been more than the sum of their exploits on the pitch. They are legends (not just the 4 of them), and they produce legendary tales. I am looking forward to more - whenever that might be!

    My wussie heart is filled with sadness. The age old rival of Suckers (since their opening season, season 2) is sailing on to more prosperous lands. Thanks for all the matches (I think there were 5) and this blog of yours. Hopefully we'll see you again, rather sooner than later.

    I have never played the Orciad, and to be honest I don't think I would ever want to-especially with my Skaven, but it is sad to see such a legendary team move on.

    Hope to see you back sometime.
