A Christmas Carol Part 4
The bell struck Twelve.

The Great Gobbo woke instantly and looked about him for the Ghost, and saw it not. As the last stroke ceased to vibrate, he remembered the prediction of old Christer, and, lifting up his eyes, beheld a solemn Phantom, draped and hooded, coming like a mist along the ground towards him.

The Phantom slowly, gravely, silently approached. When it came near him, The Great Gobbo bent down upon his knee; for in the very air through which this Spirit moved it seemed to scatter gloom and mystery.

It was shrouded in a deep black garment, which concealed its head, its face, its form, and left nothing of it visible, save one outstretched hand. But for this, it would have been difficult to detach its figure from the night, and separate it from the darkness by which it was surrounded.

He felt that it was tall and stately when it came beside him, and that its mysterious presence filled him with a solemn dread. He knew no more, for the Spirit neither spoke nor moved.

"Iz yew der Ghost of Fumbbl Yet to Come?" said The Great Gobbo.

The Spirit answered not, but pointed onward with its hand.

"Iz wot yew iz gunna show me stuff dat will appen or may appen? Itz wot may appen innit?”

The upper portion of the garment was contracted for an instant in its folds, as if the Spirit had inclined its head. That was the only answer he received.

Although well used to ghostly company by this time, The Great Gobbo feared the silent shape so much that his legs trembled beneath him, and he found that he could hardly stand when he prepared to follow it. The Spirit paused a moment, as observing his condition, and giving him time to recover.

But The Great Gobbo was all the worse for this. It thrilled him with a vague uncertain horror to know that, behind the dusky shroud, there were ghostly eyes intently fixed upon him, while he, though he stretched his own to the utmost, could see nothing but a spectral hand and one great heap of black.

“Oi yew" he exclaimed, "Why woant yew talk ter me?"

It gave him no reply. The hand was pointed straight before them at a computer screen. The screen flickered brightly in the gloom, revealing a game of Fumbbl being played. The Great Gobbo watched for a few minutes before he started to notice some things. First the coaches were not talking to each other using the chat box, and even though there were ten spectators none of them were making any noise. Annoyed, the Great Gobbo grabbed the keyboard from underneath the screen and typed in /crickets. Nothing happened so he tried again, /boo. Once more nothing happened. Annoyed the Great Gobbo looked at the teams. Both were completely min/maxed to the extreme. Getting mad now he clicked on the team bio page. Nothing. Neither coach had written a word of fluff. Disgusted the Great Gobbo shut the game down and went looking for some of the more interesting coaches. Kam, Zed, Painstate, akaRenton, EasilyAmused even Harad had not been on the site for years. Puzzled the Great Gobbo went back to find game to see what teams were playing. Every single one was Nurgle. Closer inspection revealed that they were all of exactly the same build.

“Oi ghost face, where iz all der ovva teemz?”

The Spirit leaned over his shoulder and clicked on forums. Under general chat he clicked on a thread labelled Why min/max nurgle is the only team to win with by Matthueycamo. The Great Gobbo read the dry diatribe on how the mathematically best way to win was with min/maxed nurgle and therefore every other build was stupid. There were lots of posts from people agreeing, although at the beginning some coaches had talked about fun and were quickly shouted down and soon they stopped posting at all.

The Great Gobbo shook his head. “Diz ent a game bowt winnin, itz abowt enjoyin. I fink I unnerstand now spirit, wot yew iz showin me iz der future where I doant win Fumbbler of the year 2016.” Ignoring the spirit who was vigorously shaking his head the Great Gobbo carried on. “I no wot I az ter do spirit, I az ter win Fumbbler o der yer ter stop der site turnin into a place for borin min/maxin coaches an whinin tossers. I shall rite a blog abowt me experiences an let everywun no why I az ter be Fumbbler o der yer 2016.”

Rated a six to try and avoid any pet eating or crapping on the carpets.

Great tale from a tremendous fumbler. A stark warning indeed.
