Lustrian Challenge VI qualifier V final report
I put a bit too much effort into this, so I'm blogging it as well.

the game:

the comments:
The final of the LC VI qualifier V. tiny little dwarves v some huge stat freak Woodies. Wielding two developed dancers, 2 str4 elves, with skills, and a str5 blodge guard.

My great fear had been the evil stat freakier vamps from the draw made it to the final, but Nuffle and some excellent coaching put paid to them in round 1. Their conquerers, a punchy little undead team had not been able to handle the elves sheer force of elfishness and so I had to man up to this final.

A little in tourney bloat meant i went in a little heavier than we had begun the LC, and only managed to scrape a babe off inducements. Without any cash to spend, it was left at that.

In CRP almost nothing is as important as the coin toss, to most races. Here Nuffle smiled for once and the Dwarves recieved. the kick was deep but the MA7 runner meant that wasnt a huge worry. i always set too far forward and am open to blitz, so was pleased to see that didnt cost me.

Foolishly i had elected to face the tree. You should never face the tree. just ignore it and wait for it to root. I even had a rookie dorf skilled to blodge, for tree sitting. yet still i tried to face the tree. i always bloody do. one day I'll learn. the whole 'face the tree' thing goes predictably wrong and i have to scramble a save and get dorfs away from the damn thing before it gets worse. this cost me early momentum, and attacks on the backfield elves, the position looks OK.

the elves get 2 of their evil kind into my backfield but basically set up a screen on halfway. near the edge the str5 blodge guard hangs out a big sign saying 'come surf me', 'rude not to' i thought. so i did. this made everything for the first half look much better.

We formed a big bunch. We like being ina big bunch, We rolled it forward, the tree rooted, the elves failed some dodges and the tackle worked a treat. We started turn 6 in striking range of the endzone, with a big bunch o'dorfsd round the ball and all well. then it happened...

I killed an elf, and i liked it.
The way it splooshed got me kind of excited.

It was a str4 SS blodge elf. The apoth offered RIP or RIP. He was dead.

I think the_cursed_one felt the vibe through the screen because he pressured the cage a little then jumped a dancer in for a blitz on the ball at -38 dice or something equally elfy. Now, jumping hadn't been working great, but he did it anyway.

SPLOOSH. Another elf dead, Another good elf down.

Magic. The next leap also failed, leaving a lot of exposed elves. An Si on a rookie was followed by a BH to the last str 4.

1-0 and 2 dead elves. the other str4 Bh and and an SI. turn 8-7.

Bloody elves. One turn TD. 1-1 half time. Bloody elves. Ought to be a law against that sort of thing.

Second half, 7 elves and the tree. I get a blitz and get my SF Blodge ag4 under the ball but with little protection. It doesnt work, he gets the pows woith his tackler, and the ball and runs away like a bloody coward. We manfully swarm his cage, but he dodges out and runs further away backfield, crying and sniffing the flowers. Worse he breaks a loose elf downfield and sets some others as a screen. Bleak.

He keeps dodging his little band of elves back and forth and then SPLOOSH. Another dead elf. But he gets a blodge ss line-elf downfield and the str5 and dancer are keeping the ball well out of reach.

At turn 5-5 i manage to get the str5 Ko'd and under pressure on the sideline the upfield elf one die blitzes out and takes position, the dancer leaps and dodges free, passes for the TD.

2-1 Woodies. 3 Dead Elves, 1 Si, 1 BH.

We have 3 turns, and only 2 ag3 and one ag4. We rush the two blitzers downfield. i say rush, 'slowly amble' is more accurate. But leave both exposed and both are put down,a scramble on turn 7 puts both in range. Fortunately the-cursed-one marks the rookie and downs the SF AG5, who gets only 1 marking elf. i blitz it clear and... SPLOOSH, another dead elf. The MA7 runner throws it, the dorfs all stand looking confused at the ball in the AIR, but the blitzer remembers what thats all about and catches it using a reroll.

2-2. 4 dead Elves. Elves get Overtime ball.

Now 5 elves and a tree. The ball goes to the str5 blodger. he blitzes downfield but has to stand on the sideline to be clear of dorfs without GFI. the dancer takes guarding position just ahead. He just needs one more elf to cover the str5 from the rear. But it snakes the dodge out and we surf the str5 for the second time this game. ball goes midfield and we recover it with the AG4. From there the plucky little dorfs trot it in. The leaps still fail from the elves, there's another BH. But the game is done. Won on a snaked elf dodge.

Nuffle is the comedian, we are merely the jokes.

The Delvers face the challenge stage.
