Jason put the keys into the lock... but the door was already cracked open. "That's odd. I must not have pulled it closed behind me when I left?" The hinges creaked as he pushed it open and he was startled by a group of people standing in his living room. "Mom, Dad... Father Shadow!?! What are you doing in my apartment? And who are you?" Jason questioned the stranger standing beside his parents.

"Jason," Father Shadow was first to speak, "this is an intervention." He held his hands out as if he was trying to give a hug from across the room.

"We love you, honey!" Mom interjected.

"Millie," scolded Dad, "don't interrupt!"

"An interv... what!?!" Jason was stunned and stumbled to find the right words to express his disbelief. "But... I don't have a problem..."

"Jason," said the stranger in a soft voice, "my name is Gus. I'm with Elves Anonymous and I know what you're going through 'cause I've been there myself. Smacks, Majors... even," the stranger swallowed and took a deep breath, "birthday Speed-Freak Challenges." Gus looked down, "I'm not proud of what I've done, but I understand what you're goi..."

"What!" Jason cut him off. "What? This is about my elves? Are you all nuts???" He was becoming furious now.

Father Shadow tried to calm him down. "Jason, my son. We're here because we care about you!" The Father put his arms around Jason's parents - Mom wiped tears from the corners of her eyes. "Perhaps a prayer would put us all in the right frame of mind," Father Shadow closed his eyes and held out his open palms. <i>"Oh, Great Nuffle. You giveth the double-pow and taketh away again with the double-one. We know it is not our skill which brings us success, but your will to allow us to triumph. Help poorest Jason to overcome these trying times an..."</i>

Jason startled them all with a shreik. "Trying times? The only thing that's being tried here is my patience! I have a mind to foul you all!!!" He turned and stormed for the door.

"Jason, wait!" Gus called to him. "Think about what you're doing to your parents!"

"I'm not the one with the problem, they are!" Jason screamed back over his shoulder. "You're all a bunch of nutjobs... you better be gone when I get back!" Jason turned and stood in the doorway.

"Son," called his Dad with pain in his voice, "where are you going?"

"You know where I'm going? I'm going to go sign up for the next season of the E.L.F.! That's where I'm going. And there's nothing you can do to stop me!!!" Jason slammed the door behind him.

Mom began to sob uncontrollably. "There, there." Comforted Father Shadow. "Everything will work itself out in the end." He patted her gently on the shoulder.

"I've seen this before," said a dejected Gus shaking his head. "My-oh-my, the E.L.F... Sometimes you just have to hit bottom before you can come to your senses!"



The #1 MetaGroup on Fumbbl is getting ready to kick off yet another great season!

Season XVII: Begins at 12:01 am BBtime June 21st, 2008 and ends promptly at Midnight BBtime August 31st, 2008!

i was that man.

First i just tried a little DE. What harm can it do i thought? All my firends were doing DE and i wanted to be as cool as them.

But DE are just 'gateway' elves. soon i was mainlining Woodies and chasin 'the pro'.

At my worst i got so bad i was smacking and minoring with anything ag4 i could lay my hands on. It wasn't enough to simply PASS the ball, oh no, i had to dodge and stall. i was even trying an occasional block.

But im better now. with EA and the 'dainty little steps(12)' im clean. im back on bash and feeling fine.

Im so good i can drop some elves into the ELF. no problem. i can handle it. It'll be alright, i am now in control, it'll just be one or two games.

I can handle it.


I can.


I.......

My Dark Constellations have signed up as well.

Although, I must say, it hardly seems fair to me that y'all are shamelessly cherrypicking your SKILLS. Surely a truly well-rounded ELF team ought to demonstrate flexibility not only by playing all races but by doing so with a well-rounded team, not just a bunch of faceless foresty blodgers?

Here's a version of the bio table that Mnemon made a little bit user friendly for the html challenged:

But you still have to enter the scores and calculate the scores yourself... much to my dismay.

LAZY, I WANT TO BE LAZY!

Another pair getting in just before the starting gun sounds:

  • surturiel [ R] School for Gifted Youngsters 100 Elf
  • ibambe [ R] Justicia 129 High Elf

Still a couple weeks to get your experienced team into the league... but why wait?!?

Hi

I'm a new player to online BloodBowl.
I very much like this concept concerning elves in general you have here.
Dark Elves were my favorite race for years with the board game.
Would very much appreciate someone with a little patience to get me acquainted with playing on line.
I am confident that once I am familiar with the process, that I would become a very capable coach.

Thanks for your time.

Karond Kar Poetry is back for its second season with the following objectives:

- get more points than last season (268 or more)

- win a category

- become best Dark Elf Team

- Finish Top 3

Well, I hope they will achieve at least one of these!

Last season saw the Poetry helpless in the end, when another Dark Elf team passed them just a few hours before end of the season. Sad

  • Nemeton [ R] Nemeton's Dragon Riders 168 Elf
  • cyric612 [ R] Dark Plague! 121 Dark Elf

The season just started, still time to get in!

Thanks for the Html...

I have one other question.

I understand that you get 10pts if your opponent is 155cr and a higher TS. Is this for every match, just once or once per race.

If its not for every match does that not mean you could just play one hard match then find the biggest ripest cherry you could find and then count that score including the +10 pts?
