Prancing Unicorns
P [L] Orc
"Prancing Unicorns?!" The CEO of Dark-side Bloodbowl Pty Ltd screamed at the coach Keothi, "What kind of a name is THAT for a Heavy-Duty Orc team? Sounds like the kind of foppish Elf-team name that I'd expect to see from the elf-lovers over in the Southern Wastes! Explain yourself!"

Keothi smiled and leaned back in his coaching chair...
"Yes, we're a heavy-duty Orc team, with the best players recruited from the Empire and the Rebel Alliance and yes our team name/logo looks like it belongs to the House of Elrond. Confusing isn't it? Well, I like to sow seeds of doubt into the minds of my opponents and this combination will certainly have them scratching their heads.

Luke Skywalker our young Jedi is coming along nicely, he has mastered the ways of the Force, is the team's first Legend and is causing a stir in the Southern Wastes Bloodbowl League. His contract will need re-negotiating soon and although expensive, I think he's worth the price. Bloodweiser, the brewery have also offered a sponsorship deal for his sister Leia, as she's also a star attraction at our games. Not many girls on an Orc side, so she has definite market appeal... Speaking of, Jaja is annoying, but we were forced by marketing to hire him. Something about appealing to the younger generation and broadening our demograph of appeal, not to mention the Jaja plushy dolls that sell like hot-cakes every game. Poor Obewan Kenobi has retired from numerous injuries on the field and who am I to deny him his retirement and generous benefits package? But he's still there in the background guiding Luke and now Rey.. Who else? Hmm, our front pack is looking solid with the Chancellor replacement Wookie and Ewok II all figuring out how to handle a hit or two and throw their support where needed.. You know the Chancellor moves very nimbly on the field for a big boy. Then there's Han Solo and Darth Maul, both of them have taken to Bloodbowl like they were born to it, I expect those two boys to continue to dominate the midfield and keep our opponents on their toes.

Of course, everyone laughed when I suggested putting a droid on the field, but with some reprogramming and then a leg servo motor upgrade to increase his speed, C3PO has repaid my coaching decision in spades. That robot can anticipate the kick, scoop up the ball and hurl it down-field like a seasoned veteran of Bloodbowl, both those with a pulse and those without. And he's also got a sharp boot! Oh, do you remember the time he smashed in Clark's leg? Sure the ref saw it and sent him off, but the fans loved it and I spoke to him in the dugout, telling him it was the right choice and worth the risk. I'll bet that furball Clark thinks of C3PO every time he limps onto the pitch... That's the core team, just leaving our older veteran Jedi Qui-Gon Jin, he has strengthened in the ways of the Force increasing his agility and has a remarkably accurate boot! Mace Windu has also agreed to join the team and enjoys dragging his foes down and then kicking them when down to keep them there. Yoda is getting old, slow, less agile and his injuries have taken their toll... With regret I have approved his request to retire from the side at the end of Season LXIX.

I had heard of another droid that was interested in playing Bloodbowl, called R2D2 so I've added him to the roster and I've recruited another talented young Jedi, by the name of Rey - Daughter of Han and Leia. It will be good for the fans to have another talented girl on the pitch to cheer!

I think that the Unicorns will continue to develop in strength and skill. I've got faith in this side. May the Force be with them.

**** Season History (Most recent to Trial of Blood) ****

Adelaide Anvils Conference LXIX

3 Wins, 1 Tie, 3 Losses
The Unicorns finished middle of the Conference table (4th out of 8). An average performance with much room for improvement. Some lessons to be learned here, hopefully the Unicorns perform better in their Conference Division in Season LXX.
The team is [mostly] intact. Darth Maul narrowly avoided death from the bloodthirsty Hungrinir [Yhetee] when he played against the Wonga Wonga Whalekillers; but he was stretchered off the pitch with a broken neck [-AG] after some swift doctoring. A couple of Unicorns will miss the first game of the Season due to serious injuries sustained against DDS' Lizard side and thankfully Samaranthae's beast of a side will be up in Prem causing carnage and mayhem where they belong :)

SWL Bob Borc Cup II

The Unicorns dusted themselves off and regrouped after losing two of their star players; Ewok and Obewan Kenobi. Three Swiss Rounds saw the Unicorns battle for 3 Ties, which was insufficient to make the cut for the final 8 contenders in BBCII. But the team was happy enough with their performances over the three games, no losses against some tough coaches, the ties were as enjoyable as wins and the it was a great three games to blood the rookies and slot them into the ranks, thus readying the team for Season LXIX.

SWL Season LXVIII
** Out of Play **

SWL Premier League LXVII

0 Wins, 0 Ties, 3 Losses and 4 Forfeits
On the back of a terrific Conference Season, Coach Keothi and the Unicorns suffered badly in Premier League and in 'RL'. The season was one of sadness and loss both on and off the pitch. The Unicorns reluctantly bowed out of SWL midway through the competition and sat out for the next Season as well.

Blue Mountain Dragons Conference LXVI



Conference Champion

5 Wins, 0 Ties, 2 Losses
Lucky to win in H2H against the other Conference leaders: RedMaul and buuface which gave the Unicorns the Conference Title. The losses were against eganra's Skaven and a Nuffle blessed game for almic's well coached Underworld team.
A tough Conference against the likes of (in order of play):
buuface's "Banner of the Black Stag" [1-0] WIN
tussock's heavy-weight Goblin Team "Bribery and Corruption" [3-1] WIN
eganra's "Psych Lab" [1-2] LOSS
PatDragon's "Wildcard Nats" [2-0] WIN
Irgy's "Eau de Toilet" [2-1] WIN
RedMaul's "Asha'maniacs" [1-0] WIN
almic85's "Southern Warpstone Scavengers" [1-3] LOSS

The Unicorns/Keothi started the season ranked 36/38 according to Tomay's team/coach assessment:

Tomay quote:
"36. Prancing Unicrons [+4]: Keothi has been watching some games and his team is cool. I hope he is the next guy I’m calling a big improver." SWL Season LXVI Forum
