HKIRBBTL: Skogen Mörke Dimmubowl 2012: Mütants - Murderers 1-1

The cruel winds of the Sea of Claws were for once calm on the day Mephala's Murderers and the 3rd Street Mutants faced off for their game in Skogen Mörke Dimmubowl on the coast of Ostland. Seven thousand dedicated Dark Elf fans had crossed the ocean on their elegant galleys while ten thousand brutish Chaos supporters had come forth from the dark northern forests.

The 3rd Street Mutants won the coin toss and elected to kick, confident that the Murderers would not be able to find a hole in their perfect defensive coverage.

The assassin Balyn Omavel retrieved the ball and passed it to the runner Giron Manas while Dranas Dradas and Shishi Yanumibaal went to work to create a hole through the wide zone.

The agile lineman Savure Uvalor dodged through the gap to receive a pass from Giron Manas, trusting his teammates to tie up their beastly opponents long enough for him to score a touchdown. Unfortunately beastman Kinzgor managed to slip loose and sack him.

What followed was a prolonged mêlée during which neither side managed to get to the ball. The strength and sheer brutality of the chaos team served them well: chaos warrior Boss the Unbeaten smashed the hand of Assaba-Bentus and chaos warrior Cyrus the Unbeliever, making his debut in Helsinki-Kotka Interregional Blood Bowl Turboleague, fractured Tussurradad's skull. But the violence wasn't all one-sided: Zimgor could only watch the battle from the dugout, dazed but uninjured, after Shishi the witch elf kicked him into the stands.

Finally a disastrous blitz from the Minotaur Olegox that left the brute lying stunned on the astrogranite gave the Murderers an opening. Savure Uvalor nimbly evaded Boss the Unbeaten trying to cover him, retrieved the ball and ran it to the endzone to put the Murderers up one nothing.

There was still enough left of the first half for one kick-off. The frustrated beast Olegox vented its rage by sending the Blitzer Nina to the Murderers' dugout, laid out cold.

When the second half started the Murderers set up to kick with a severely depleted lineup. Like they had done in their previous reception, the Mütants started their attack almost before the Murderers were ready.

All too soon nearly all the darke elves were tasting astrogranite and the Mütants could retrieve the ball and set up the cage around the ball carrier Gorgor unobstructed. The Murderers scrambled to get some sort of defense together, but it was too little, too late.

Gorgor blitzed his way out of the cage, knocked out defending Savure Uvalor and didn't stop until he reached the end zone, tying the game.

At the midpoint of the second half the presence of thousands of chaos supporters made itself felt. In mockery of the bitter winds of the bleak shore the weather suddenly turned stiflingly hot. Breathing a little more heavily than they had before the Murderers set up to receive one more time. Nina had recovered from the blow Olegox had dealt her and returned on the gridiron with vengeance in her heart.

Nina knocked out Kinzgor, allowing Shishi Yanumibaal to slip through the Mütants line, looking for a pass. Unfortunately Balyn Omavel, sweltering heat having rendered his elegant hands unaccustomedly moist with sweat, failed to pick up the ball.

Forced by the assassin's error to help the witch elf remain open a while longer, the beautiful and deadly Nina blitzed Piergor, knocking him out of the game also. On the second try Balyn picked up the ball and handed it off to Giron Manas. Giron ran up the field unopposed and launched a pass intended for Shishi, who had a clear run to the endzone. Unfortunately the ball slipped in his hand just enough for the pass to go a little wide.

The shorthanded Murderers could hold the Mütants back no longer, and the chaos players surrounded the loose ball before the dark elves managed to recover it. The beastman Dexgor picked the ball up, and the Mütants had little difficulty in protecting it for the rest of the game.

The final result was a 1-1 tie. MVP for Murderers was #05 Giron Manas, despite missing the final pass. Mütants MVP was #10 Angor.
