MOOOORRRGGGG!
Just what does a team created for a knock out tournament do after being sent home on Round 1? Morgwegian suffered such a fate in the Big Star Cauldron. Morg was badly hurt by Big Bertha before he had his Turn 1. Without Morg the team was lost, and defeat was a foregone conclusion.

But no! Morg would not be silenced, so the Norse played the inducement game. Morg has appeared in every game the team has ever played. Initially a friendly or two, then a successful Lambhurly Shield Challenge. After losing the Shield, Morg took a bit of a break. Then signed up to play in a SWL Fringe tourney Waikikamukau Festival. The team surprised many winning the first two games against much bigger teams, before defeat in the last 2 rounds saw him finish mid-table. However, Morg did secure most individual Cas in the tournament.

So what was next for Morg? Well, in the Southern Wastes League, occasionally you'll find there's a division with an odd number of teams. Or perhaps a team never showed up to the starting blocks. In LXIII a Norse team "Mad Midgardians" had a somewhat brutal encounter with a goblin tandem chainsaw act. After 5 turns the Norse had suffered a death, 2 x -ST, and a MNG. Dummy well and truely spat, the Norse coach conceded, retired his team, and left FUMBBL, never to be seen in SWL again. So a Filler team was needed. This team was Morgwegian.

Shitt this is a fun team to play with. Morg has had an absolute ball in the Emily Regional. In five games Morg has scored 4 TDs and 10 Cas. Not being able to pick opponents has meant the inducement game occassionally requires a bit of work. Against DDamAge's Rats, he had to fire his perfectly healthy pet Ulf and go into the game with only 9 teammates. But Morg has been a success story. Despite getting one less game than the other teams (he carries the Round 1 concession loss), with 3 wins and 2 draws, Morg is in a position to take the trophy.

All that stands in his way is a Khemri team. Sphinxes from Mars, a team that pitch cleared Freezy Trees a few seasons back. The Trees have never beaten a bash team. However, Morgwegian has! A win early next week will secure the Regional victory!

But before that happens Morg must cross back across the ditch. And play 6 games on the Deserted Isles. Morg is coming to the Capital Shield! :D

Link to table top team photo. Not quite finished, first time I've ever gotten a team painted for a tourney in two weeks.

EDIT: Morg managed to squeeze in the game before hopping on the boat across the ditch. Sadly the fairy tale ending didn't happen and the mighty Sphinx lift the trophy

For the love of Nuffle, you haven't done a team in homage to B2k have you?

Funny you should say that. Recently a Balle has been added to the team roster.

Day 1 of TT NAF Tourney
Game 1: Disastrous game against Elves. Morg mishandled the ball 4 or 5 times. FAME -2, pitch invasion. Blitz.... 0-5 loss
Game 2: Morg Scores! Up 1-0 against Vampire at half time. Sweltering heat removes Morg, Strip Baller, Blodge Tackler, and Dirty Player. 7 linemen against a full Vampire team. Bloodlust prevails... 1-0 win!
Gamw 3: Ogres. Easy canter to 2-1 win.

Morg 1TD. Zero Cas. Team at 2/0/1... in with a shot going into Day 2
