Miskatonic U Avatars

Race:  Nurgle
Coach:  James H
Those whose minds are already unstable should beware what they read...

Formerly the History and Archaeology department at the (admittedly warped) Miskatonic University of Nurgle, they have become the avatars of Gods and Beings from a different plane of existence, thanks to the influence of warpstone and a peculiar volume called the NECRONOMICON.

Foes be warned, facing this team will toll on your minds as well as your bodies!

Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn!

Minds Destroyed and Bodies Fortified
Dread Cthulu's avatar and his minions took to the field against the despisable and deplorable dark elves of the Purple Haze. Being foes of old, the Avatars spared no mercy for the elves, their cprrupting influence evident from the very start.

All through the match, the mind- and reality-warping effects the Great Old Ones exerted on the elves was evident. The usually agile, if not swift, elves were reduced to cowering cravens, unable to pick up the ball or pass it without falling cringing under the stare of a force against the laws of nature.

In the end, with bodies broken, minds torn asunder and egos deflated, the elves slunk away the losers, and Cthulu heaped upon his favoured followers and Avatars boons and skills.

The serpents were the stars of this match and to the victor the spoils. Yig's faithful and dedicated servants were favoured by being asked to join in a dark ritual by the Avatar of the Father of Serpents. Yig's Hands were gifted with agility, now able to dodge around their opponents with the greatest of ease. The Father of Serpents himself was granted a set of threshing claws, which in addition to his terrible fangs, will leave his opponents broken and bleeding on the pitch in his wake.

Only time now will tell of Cthulu will continue to favour his chosen avatars, or if the god's fickle whims change as often as his dreams of madness.

With Strange Eons...
Abdul Alhazred said "That is not dead, which can eternal lie. And with strange eons, even Death may die."

Truer words were not spoken when it came to this match, the first match played by the Avatars. The game's only two casualties were deaths, and both against the Avatars. The first was caused when Yig was cast violently into the crowd, who them proceeded some time later to violently cast his remains into the Avatar's reserve bench.

While nothing could save Yig, nothing could save Death from Dread Cthulu.

When the Great Old One was felled by a lucky blow from a dwarf, Death came once again to collect his payment. But instead it was Cthulu who walked away from the encounter, sending away the Bone Walker with a warning, should he dare to return.

So yes, the key word of Alhazred was indeed may, for Death descended twice, but only took his price once.
