This is a thread dedicated to the "match reports" for the Outer Tilog versus Halcyon & Allies war in the Colonies.

Things were kicked off by Aoifa Dubhaine. And from there they've kinda spiralled...

Halcyon 1 - Outer Tilog 0

The East Coast season has kicked off with a surprise upset by newcomers Halcyon as they defeat current champions Outer Tilog in the Bode Batura Uncharitable Derby.

Come on OT, putting on a first innings funk is all well and good for getting the suckers to lengthen your odds, but us aficionados want to see your star bowlers in action.

Well the second Battle of Naan Forest kicked off with a good strong infantry opening from the away side as Alowca, Oritolon and Halcyon put their soldiers out in front. Unfortunately their rear left much to be desired - although rather round and plump it was sadly strung out with the horses to the rear.

The defending Outer Tilogian United kicked off with a strong infantry defence with archers behind. A few plucky local peasants also joined in on the Tilogian side - the locals are always keen for any excuse to loot the bodies of the dying and dead here in Naan Forest!

The OT soldiers charged towards the charging away team and both sides met in the middle. The away side had more men in the scrum, including some on horses, which led to the OT team getting mauled a bit and some of the peasants running off, but in terms of points OT came out ahead.

The away team managed to put down Grant "Pucker up" Puckett, Baron of Volkanita but some excellent fouls by OT saw them take down Eliza Vermiculus, Dame of Alebad, and Ash "Ketchup" Ketchum, Grand Justiciar of Oritolon, was fouled repeatedly by angry peasants.

With most of the OT infantry out the way the away team advanced on the OT archers who proceeded to turn them into porcupines with arrows. Ash Ketchum got shot in the face, fouling him again, Lady Cassandra "Foxy Lady" Foxglove, Warlord of Aren, Dame of Alowca, was fouled by the peasants before they were wiped out, Isidro de Zueww, Knight of Maira Merani, was fouled by some drunk satyrs, and Rolf Cruscavas, Knight of Iglavik,was chewed by some wargs.

With most of the away team infantry dead or fled, OT continued to pepper the visiting team with arrows.  Johannes Von Lunkhofen, Viscount of Rollsovar, was fouled by some maidens, Ash "Ketchup" Ketchum was seriously fouled yet AGAIN by some urchins (letting them collect the bounty on his head) and Lady Cassandra "Foxy Lady" Foxglove, Warlord of Aren, was fouled again by the home team.

OT United didn't get it all their own way though, Vladamire Abjur, Minister of Offense of Outer Tilog also got fouled by some of the away team archers.

The match was almost over now, with OT well ahead on fouls and in terms of men left alive on the field, but they still had time to foul Pippa "Porcupine" Anderbliss, Queen and General of Oritolon, and Javic Essenhorn, Lawgiver of Aren, with arrows before the away team all ran away and the home side claimed victory.

The final score saw OT United ahead on 8 fouls to 2.

The rematch is scheduled to take place soon and the man of the match goes to Baron Tobias "Murderous" Mersault and his band of urchins for their bone crunching final foul to the pimple nosed Ash "Ketchup" Ketchum, the Grand Juicer of Oritolon (or something like that).

Bode Batura Shield Rematch

Another day, another match.

The away team Outer Tilog United was still a bit worse for the wear from their match earlier this week and fielded a team mostly made up of special forces - which was ably countered by the home team of Halcyon International and their archer-heavy team.

The match started with some ritual attempts at intimidation from OTU with Minister of Offense Vladamire "Vicious" Abjur waving his Brutal Broadsword around, but he was overshadowed by his teammate Duke Garm "Gonads" Tanngrisnir Crownguard and his Grisly Codpiece which was far larger than the aforementioned Brutal Broadsword.

While this might have had the home team feeling a little nervous, especially since the best they could offer in return Baron Ares "Airy" Manor's Sacred Ring, they didn't show it and soon got stuck in, peppering OTU with arrows and even scoring a spectacular foul against "Gonads" with no fewer than five arrows hitting his Grisly Codpiece.

However, Halcyon International didn't have it all their own  way and the away team struck back by fouling Sir Sapiens Dulcis and Emeralda Starfall, Countess of Warmanoras - giving OTU an early lead.

Unfortunately it was all downhill from there for OTU. Team Captain Grimwald charged out in front with his five remaining members of the vicious Elderly Ladies Knitting Club of Outer Tilog, only to get charged by Sir Ardow "Moony" Moonsun and his Black Cavaliers coming the other way, who successfully fouled Grimwald by trampling him and the rest of the OTU forwards repeatedly with their horses.

"Moony" didn't stop there either and kept charging the away team frontline, even managing to foul Rory "Surly" Sarwell before Sarwell's men struck back and fouled "Moony" and his Black Cavaliers so badly that all of them were either killed or taken to the healers tents. The rest of the home team also managed to foul Baron Grant "Pucker Up" Puckett.

With no forwards left for either team, the remainder of the match was made up of the two teams shooting at each other. This was lucky for Halcyon International as even their opponents recognise them as being the undisputed champions of fighting from as far away as possible.

After a few rounds of shooting, all the OTU players were either dead, wounded or fled, allowing Halcyon International to claim victory. Although OTU did manage one last foul against Dame Eliza Vermiculus, Halcyon International are doubtless still celebrating their two fouls against Vladamire "Vicious" Abjur by Sovereign Kohvic "Raving" Raven's The Great Purge, leaving "Vicious" seriously wounded.

The final score saw Halcyon International ahead on 6 fouls to 4.

Stay tuned for the next match. Man of the match goes to Sir Ardow "Moony" Moonsun for the combination of his excellent foul against Grimwald Sussex and his rank stupidity in charging headlong into the OTU midfielders - that's the kind of spirit we need more of in the Colonies!
