I don't know how we ended up here, in 2515 surrounded by monsters, but Otago is still a province and we are now it's sole representative rugby team! The rules have evolved a little, but the principles remain the same, it just involves a little more blood.
We arrived and looked for a game of Rugby, as you do. We found a few, and talk about blood, with the odd death on the field of play. At least it was them and not us.
What a mess. We went 4/1/2, which wasn't bad, and evened out the squad ready for a proper season, adjusting to the rules as we went. Earnt a bit of the local currency too, which covered the entry fee, and took the Lamburly Shield into the main comp!
Holders of the Lambhurly Shield, one win. Taken from a monster and his sycophants.
It was Season 2 for the Deserted Isles, which still looked a lot like New Zealand to us, and horrible monsters everywhere. Less deaths for them on the field, but we suffered our first loss in the long nine-game season.
Vengeance is due! Season 2, game sixVengeance is owed Conniving Pete Team fled the League! Cowards!
Had two successful defences against stinky monsters and a pack of giants! But some strange scaly folk were all a bit much for the girls after the beating those clumsy giants gave us. One day we will claim it back!
We lost the semi-final "Tickling" playoff to Mech Tech, the season Champions. Ah well, upwards and onwards.
On to Season 3 in the Deserted Isles, Stinkfinger division, and their deaths haunted us something fierce as we finished up 0/2/4.
We won the bottom of the table Wobbly Boot off those woodies. It is a tragedy we were even playing for it, but there we go.
On to Season 4 in the Deserted Isles, Zuggy Cuddles division, wasn't very cuddly really, we finished an improved 3/0/3 after Mech Tech abandoned the games rather than face our growing talents in the seven-game season. So many dead!
Got a few shots in. First against some high-flying elfin types, a tie was ruled not enough to claim it back. But they kept stealing the ball! Second against some low-kicking elfin types, and they just plain smashed us. Third, we won the Wobbly Boot and the shield was handed to us just like that!
On to Season 6 in the Deserted Isles, Fatal Flaws division, tragedy struck again, we finished last with a continuing run of sad performances 0/4/1 in the five-game season. At least the deaths were somewhat rare.
Defended against those high fliers, despite them stealing the ball. Defended against those bloodthirsty Vamps, despite a lapse on defence. Lost it to some temporary little gents with big hats, and half the team with it.
Played in, and won, the Wobbly Boot bottom of the table competition. No shield this time.
On to Season 7 in the Deserted Isles, Mech Tech division, a slight recovery of form after a softer run to finish 2/2/2 in the six-game season, oddly we didn't really kill anyone at all. Feels wrong.
Played in the "Tickling" Playoffs with the best once more. Won our way to the final against Temporary Placeholder. It did not go well at all.
On to Season 10 in the Deserted Isles, Blackwater Blitz division, no recognition for all our Wobbly Boots. Finished an uncomfortable 4/1/2 in the seven-game season.
Vengeance is due! Season 10, Game one
This blitzer must die! Let nothing be spared. Olivia will show us how. Season 10, Game three
Apes are disgusting creatures, and suprisingly mean. Nails was just the first. Season 10, Game seven
Necromantic, a Dance Party they said, we'll be dancing on all their ashes soon enough.
Played in the "Tickling" Playoffs Lost first game to the eventual champions?, Temporary Placeholder. Those tall-hatted little monsters are an endless curse apon the Spirit.
Pending, the ladies are raring to exact some Vengeance on all sorts of players and teams.
