    Prologue: "Loke "Cr3pusculum" Halfgiant looked at the ragtag of miscreants he'd manage to scrape together from the isolated villages of Norscean. It wasn't much to throw out on the bloody fields of Blood Bowl but it was at least a full squad. For as long as he could remember he'd wanted to win personal fame in the Big Crunch 2 League, but as a player he'd hadn't even managed to make it to the Loner stables due to his physique, as a half giant you should think he'd have the muscles and such for Blood Bowl but he'd only inherited the length not the strength. But now due to a shortage of full rosters in the Indus division mid season he'd gotten the chance to put together at team of Norscean half giants and join the league on the sufferance of league manager HelGn. The Norscean half giants weren't in their prime but if he could get a few games in he'd be able to convince some o the more fit half giants of Norscean warriors to join the team. He'd even managed to trap a Yehtee from the caves outside one of the villages, if nothing else they could bring some welcome havoc on the line of scrimmage. Now the road to fame in the domes of Blood Bowl and Big Crunch 2 could begin."

    S11 (Indus)

    Game 1 (MD4)
    Middenheim Magic 3 vs. 0 Norscean Lycans
    Casualties: 8 - 1
    Kills: 1 - 1
    Fallen "giants":
    Lineman Sigurôr Sturluson (5 SPP) - Dead
    Yhetee Unr the Frozen (0 SPP) - Left in a cellar under the pitch of Middenheim Magic

    - "What a bloodbath"
    Cr3pusculum looked with horror as his rag tags of half giants got torn asunder on the pitch in their opening game vs. Middenheim Magic. He couldn't fathom a human team could wreck such havoc on his hardened half giants (well they were not in their prime but still "Cr3pusculum" thought). Not even close to getting the ball over the goal line of the opponents side of the pitch. Unr the Frozen even got injured which affected his strength (gonna take a while before I can replace him "Cr3pusculum" thought in the back of his head). They had played quite aggressively and thrown a decent amount of succesfull blocks, but the 13 times they'd broken the armour only 4 had resulted in KO and 1 CAS (which was self inflicted) it had all ended with Lineman Sigurõr Sturloson dead (and to really rub it in the "!#¤"%" goblins had awarded him the MVP), Lineman Drifta the Drunk, the Runner Egillfrear and and Ulfwerener Afi Ulfhedinn all three MNG. The only small comfort was the death of Lineman Blind Benfred Hill, a death he couldn't even acknowledge to one of his one half giants due to that it was caused by a clumsy block attempt by the killed one himself.
    - "This will be a deep chasm to climb up from"
    Cr3pusculum snarled under his breath before he closed the gates of the cellar on the Yhetee Unr the Frozen and left the dome with heavy shoulders."

    Game 2 (MD5)
    The Hard Scales (Lizzards) 1 vs. 1 Norscan Lycans
    Scoring "Half-giants":
    "Who?"
    Casualties: 1 - 1
    Kills: 0 - 0
    Fallen "giants":
    None :D

    "Cr3pusculum surveyed the field entering the home of the Hard Scales and thought to himself: "How big can those monstrosities of Lizzards actually become?"
    He looked at the opponents players and started to draw up a rough game plan of todays game.
    "Well we need try and mark down the big lizzards and take out those skinks, I mean how hard can it be?"
    Quite hard Cr3pusculum learned as the match started and progressed, Doge, Sidestep and Stunty made thoose skinks slippery as iced fish and it didn't take the Skink Vulthuryol to long before he managed to slip free with the ball and cross the Lycans goal line. Cr3pusculum was furious: "How could those little blue critters survive the repeated blocks from his half-giants. The team was in for a warm awakening tonight in the saunas (after the Norse thrives in the cold so what use would a cold awakening be...)"
    In the 2nd half the Lycans had the offensive start and ... managed to score the Lycans first TD since they joined Indus. Cr3pusculum left the pitch not at all as dissatisfied as he had been in half time.
    "The wretched half-giants even managed to score a TD in this game, not bad, not bad at all and all!" Cr3pusculum thought to himself.
    The team had been somewhat intact leaving the pitch except for Lineman Geirrgerâr who had managed to get himself injured and would miss the next game.
    "Ah well, at least he'll survive!" Cr3pusculum joyfully exclaimed!
    But the happy moment hastily disappeared as Cr3pusculum murmured under his beard: "Now if only the defense could manage to take down thoose quick little buggers there could be hope still for the coming games."

    Game 3 (MD6)
    The Big Crunchers (Orcs) 2 vs.0 Norscan Lycans

    Game 4 (MD7)

    Norscan Lycans 0 vs. 0 Horns Gorer (Chaos)

    Game 5 (MD8)

    Norscan Lycans 1 - 2 V for Skink

    "Cr3pusculum shook his head due to the failure to show up for to the field in time for kick-off due to some Skaven blew up the bridge connecting the hostel in which the team had taken refuge prior to the game with the stadium. The referee gave V for Skink the win with 2-1"

    Game 6 (MD9)

    Norscan Lycans 2 vs. 1 Naggaroth Blues (Dark Elves)
    Casualties: 3 - 3
    Kills: 1 - 0

    "Cr3pusculum looked at the Dark Elf team of Naggaroth Blues across the field with a distaste. Long, slender and dark they didn't look dangerous but the information he could gather regarding the Dark Elf race said they would be troublesome to lock down. He wanted to so bad to end the season with at least one win to show that after the initial blood bath they had gotten back and was a force to be somewhat feared on the pitch. His hopes went tumbling down the drain when the opposition got a Blitz and killed the Berzerker "Insert Name" on their first block. Thankfully the Apothecary he had hired managed to get him up on his feet again ready for some more mayhem. Naggaroth managed to break the Lycans offense and scored a TD in the middle of the 1st half of the game and Lycans didnt manage to equalize the score before halftime. Cr3pusculum had a long and quite imaginative talk with the team at half time. The Lycans managed to get a blitz going on the kickoff of 2nd half so well placed so that Thrower "Insert Name" could run up and actually catch the ball from the kick off with a decent cage around him. The following turns took a tull on Naggaroth and when Runner "Insert Name" took the ball over the goal line Naggaroth could only set up 6 players for kick off. Cr3pusculum could smell the possibility of actually snatching a win in this final game of the season when Lycans got a 2nd blitz, they couldnt get to the ball this time but managed to lock down Naggaroth quite well and on the final turn when Naggaroth was down to 3 players on the pitch (whereas 2 was stunned) Runner "Insert Name" passed the goal line with the ball for a 2-1 win in the closing game of the season. Cr3pusculum gleamed with satisfaction to the win and started to dream of accomplishments in the future...."

    S12 (Indus)

    Prologue S12
    Cr3pusculum sat in the dim light from the flickering candle in the small shack next to the stable that he had managed the locate the team for S12. He had been forced to make some tough decisions before the start of the new season, a lot of fresh teams where gonna join Indus this season and a to high TV would encourage the new comers to spend inducements on wizards or other nasties. So before he moved the team to their new home he had given Runner Egillfrear and Lineman Drifta the Drunk some coins from the team treasury and sent them on the way home to Norsca. After all they had joined him when he tried to scramble a first line up going in mid season 11 in Indus, and Egrillfrear had put the living fear in one or two opponents during his games. That had left an empty bench but at least the risk of wizards or mercs in the first matches of the season was minimized.

    I'm never forgetting that match ;) a complete and utter blood bath! But if anything that game taught me to be completely merciless when it comes to rushing headlong into the games so far! I've managed to rebuild decently since that game and I will need to get rid of some Niggling dead weight entering S12 but will still end up with a valid team starting next season, even managed to squeeze of a win vs. Naggaroth Blues (DE) in the final game. Think he had 3-4 players left on the field when I scored the final TD so Nuffle blesses my "half-giants" when he feels like it :p
    Hope to get some more inspiration and continue the saga of the Norscan Lycans aswell :D glad you like it!
