BREAKDOWN!

Downhouser rolled a critical on his pass, and ended up killing someone. Got Katie the "ball". Considered it good enough to give him back and awesome point. Wee.

Danyael spent an awesome point to not get crushed, and did a little (subdual) damage to the captain.

Percy made shitloads of snowmen, or something.

Virago needed an awesome point to kill the goalie, and killed him good.

Katie scored a pretty easy goal, which was good because she rolled terribly for the shot. But there was no goalie, so woo.

Vitali has scavenged the dead goalie's pads/blocker/mask. A little bloodstained, but useable. No one really got to the net, so his duct tape was wasted, the zamboni will tear it off.

There are three Wildfire's left.

The captain is going to stay centre, he's a bit bruised up. The lady is going back to defense, and she's got a bit of thing for Danyael. The last defenseman will be taking up goal.

Stats and statuses have been updated on the front page.

Questions?

“Ok, guys,” he said when everybody was bunched together on the bench, “we can win this thing. All I need to do is stomp our own goal so deep into the ice that there is no more room for that black, little, flat ball to get in.”

There was a moment of complete silence as the assembled group stared at the enormous Downhouser, who by all accounts believed this was a genuinely good suggestion, let alone physically possible. It was only the nervous twittering of Percy (who seemingly had constructed another snow man atop the boards) that finally drew the team's attention back to the fact that they had to step out onto the ice again shortly. Seizing the moment, Danyael quickly laid out his thoughts on the game plan.

"Virago has already reduced their team by 1 with some creative high sticking. That should make this next period a bit easier. I'll keep the captain and the incredibly she-hulk out of it as much as I can. All we have to do is hold them off, and score a single goal. We've seen that they play dirty, and the ref didn't call anything on Virago. So guys, what do you say we step up the beating a bit eh?"

There were murmurs of agreement (and some more giggling from Percy) as the team prepared to step out on the ice. Vitali began slapping dozens of pieces of duct tape to himself, as Katie managed to get Downhouser worked up into a “ball-getting frenzy”. As Downhouser stormed out onto the ice, the group realized that Virago hadn't been present at the huddle. A quick scan of the rink noticed the hyperactive man-child firing himself around the ice at near supersonic speeds, all the while shouting jeers and taunts at the Canadian and the other team. Virago finally returned to the bench just as the rest of the team prepared to step out on to the ice, and wasted no time in releasing his unique form of conversation.

"So guys. Hockey is fun, huh? Did you see what happened to their center? I like playing hockey. It's so much easier to move on these skates. I hope the Canadian lets me keep them. Who should I try to kill this time net man? And what's with the tape? Man this is fun, huh? I liked your snowmen Percy. You should totally try my version and just attack the other guys that come down here. Then make sure you hit that little black thingy down to the other side so those guys can do... uh... whatever it is they do.

He skated impatiently around the ice while the rest of the team took their positions, bobbing and weaving around Percy's small army of snowmen. The Wildfire's spread out on the ice as Virago skated back to Vitali's net, which by now was tactically surrounded in pieces of duct tape as some sort of deterrent.

"Hey Goalie, why does the other guy have so much better stuff than you? Hey I got an idea! I killed their guy and then took his stick. Why don't I kill THAT guy and then you can have HIS stuff? Good idea huh? I'm good at this hockey thing, right?"

Before Vitali even had a chance to respond, Virago was off again, spiralling towards centre ice and for some reason setting up opposite Downhouser on the Wildfire's half. Prompting the referee to attempt to push him back over the centre line and towards his own end as the Wildfire captain stepped off Katie's wing to take the face-off against the enormous super cop.

The referee took his place, and the players prepared for the near inevitable failure of Downhouser to win a face-off when Danyael managed to catch the captain's eye. Giving a sly smile, Danyael looked up to the stands where the captain's wife was sitting, and gave a very visible wink, causing the new centre's face to redden with rage. Danyael's distraction proved very useful as the captain didn't even notice as the puck dropped, taking off at a full sprint towards Danyael, who suddenly remembered why enraging a man twice your size was almost always a bad idea.

Downhouser meanwhile, had simply been repeating his new mantra over and over in his head. I will get you that ball. I will get you that ball. I will get you that ball. He looked over at Katie on the wings and gave what could be considered a knowing (for Downhouser anyway) nod just as the puck began to drop. As captain Connard took off in the opposite direction, Downhouser could hardly contain his joy. He was going to get her the ball. Overwhelmed by his sheer satisfaction with the situation, he swung his stick back in a large arc, more akin to the slapshot than a pass, and let loose a deafening bellow.

”I WILL GET YOU THAT BALL”

There was a resounding boom as the giant's stick connected with the puck, and for all her speed Katie had absolutely no chance of bringing it down as it tore towards her on her way up the wing. Left with no chance but to hurl herself onto the ice, she barely managed to get out of the way as the puck sailed centimetres over her head and through the glass, causing a terrific crash as the panel didn't so much shatter as dematerialize. The sailed down the long Zamboni entrance path and seemed to disappear into the darkness.

Seeing an opportunity to kick Katie while she was down, one of the Wildfire defensemen launched himself towards her, when a loud slapping noise was heard, followed by a sharp whistle. Any confusion was near instantly dispelled as the speeding defenseman suddenly flipped over backwards, having been struck by possibly the most fortuitous of ricochet slapshots. As his limp form hit the ice, the puck meekly slid away from his fallen form, and there was a momentary pause as just about every player on the ice paused to think about how incredibly improbable that had been. As the puck drifted towards Katie's waiting stick, a jubilant Downhouser could be heard yelling from centre ice.

”I GOT YOU THAT BALL”

Back near Downhouser, Danyael was in a mad dash for his life. Jean-Luc le Connard seemed entirely uninterested in playing hockey anymore, and he seemed a hell of a lot more proficient on his skates than the smooth lady's man. Doing his best to bob and weave across the ice, Danyael found himself running out of room as he worked his way down the rink. With the distance between the captain and himself rapidly closing, Danyael found no more ice for him to skate on, so drawing inspiration from something he'd seen in a movie once, he decided maybe it was time to skate on something other than the ice.

He waited until the captain committed to a hit before making his move, and he leapt towards the glass the the instant before the hit connected. Time seemed to slow down a moment before Danyael kicked outward, smashing his skate straight through the glass, forming an anchor keeping him suspended in the air. Left with no time to react, Jean-Luc ploughed into the boards forcefully, shattering the glass and bringing the no longer suspended Danyael dropping down on top of him knee first. While the captain groggily tried to right himself, Danyael quickly made his way down ice, back towards the action in the Wildfire's end.

With one defenseman flattened by Downhouser literally feeding him the puck and their captain still on the ice at the other end, the Wildfire line was in disarray. The lone defenseman found himself out of position as Katie streaked in on the net once again, seeking atonement for her missed shot last period. Just as she was about to take the shot however, a gibbering blur swept past her as Virago seemed to have torn his way across the ice towards the opposing goal. Before she could even think of passing to him however, he had his stick raised over his shoulder, and seemed to be making a beeline for opposing goalie, who was quickly discovering he had more pressing issues than the agile Irish lass preparing to take a shot at him.

Everything seemed to happen at once, and just as Katie fired off a quick wrister at the net time seemed to slow down, and Virago gave a mighty swing, sending himself twirling towards the Wildfire goalie, who was caught off guard by the two things sailing towards him. Catching a glimpse of the puck, he attempted to make a diving save, only to find Virago's stick hook him around the back of the neck, and pull him bodily off the ice. As the puck sailed easily into the empty net, Virago continued his slow motion death spiral, stopping his swing and sending the other goalie skyward, screaming all the while.

The goal horns blared as Katie's shot bounced off the twine and settled comfortably in the back of the net, though everyone's focus was more on the Wildfire goalie, who seemed to be setting a possible record of the longest recorded hockey stick assisted hangtime. As he collided with the ice just outside of Vitali's crease, the screams abruptly ended, and the goalie slid slow up to the Ukrainian goalkeeper, who wasted absolutely no time in getting a move on removing the ex-goalie's pads to better protect himself.

Goal celebrations were short lived however, as the sudden appearance of the Zamboni tearing towards the ice signalled the end of the period again. The players made their ways to the bench as the Zamboni began pushing the bloodied remains of the fallen Wildfire players off the ice.

”END OF THE SECOND PERIOD. CURRENT SCORE; WILDFIRES: ZERO, FANTASTI'S LAPDOGS: ONE. YOU HAVE ONE MINUTE BEFORE THE NEXT PERIOD.”

Well, it would be near impossible, and require awesome points to throw down.

And then possibly would result in me deploying...well ask Tek what I'll throw at you

Also, if every other player just wants to make a post where they stare incredulously at Downhouser until the start of the next period, I will be more than satisfied.

That's posted. Sorry about the quality, that just really sucked for some reason.

Quick breakdown.

Downhouser is like, possibly the first face off man ever, rolling a fantastic 1 for that reflex there. Also managed to miss every attempt to block he had. Well done.

Virago used an awesome point to insta-kill the unfortunate Wildfire centre. He actually did twice as much damage as the centre had health there, so well done.

Katie would have beaten the goalie for a goal but used her advantage/disadvantage to her...disadvantage and got denied. For her trouble, she also took a fairly hard hit into the boards and has had the wind knocked out of her something fiece.

Vitali used an awesome point to make a save on a damn near impossible shot.

Percy has made a couple tiny snowmen.

Danyael has spent most of his time drawing the captain out of position and hitting on the "woman".

Any changes to plans/positions/colours/bananas/bassoons should go here. Feel free to post up some backpost/in between period fluff and uh...you're still tied.

Sorry about the terrible delay, will be much better for the forseeable future.

Chapter 1.3: Everything is Manlier on Ice!

The team took a brief conference on their side of the ice. Introductions were made, and the couple of them that had played (or at least seen hockey before) laid out a brief game plan. The team skated about uneasily, getting their footing before finally settling in to their positions. Vitali took up his spot in goal, while Virago and Percy set up directly in front of him. The enormous Downhouser, flanked by Katie and Danyael, sidled up to centre ice, casting large shadow over the Wildfires' centre. The rest of the Wildfires took up their zones, with their captain Jean-Luc set up beside Katie, while staring menacingly across the ice at Danyael, who found himself matched up against the only female (or certainly the one that seemed the most female) on the Wildfire team. A pair of large, gruff players made up the Wildfire back line, with their goalie decked out in full gear, much to Vitali's under-equipped resentment.

The referee skated up to centre ice and stood between the towering Downhouser and the comparatively short Wildfire centre, who gave a short chuckle as he looked up to make eye contact with Downhouser's omnipresent sunglasses.

”What's the weather like oop there wit' yoo, eh?”, he asked, his question drawing a couple laughs from the other Wildfire players. Downhouser seemed slightly confused for a moment however, and right as he was taking a moment to evaluate the meteorological situation in the vicinity of his head the opposing centre nudged the ref, who quickly threw the puck to the ice before Downhouser could pay attention. With a simple tap of his stick, the Wildfire had the puck through Downhouser's legs and had streaked around his side towards the team's blueline.

Virago had been twirling in place in his end, his adrenaline and enthusiasm for unbridled violence leaving him barely able to stand still. The moment he spotted Downhouser's defensive lapse he surged towards the approaching player, barrelling towards him with barely a thought for his own well being. Holding his hockey stick over his head like some sort of battleaxe, Virago surged into the air mere feet from the Wildfire centre, whose attention had been momentarily drawn away by an errant bounce of the puck. Time seemed to slow a moment, and the centre only just managed to look up at Virago just as the stick met him right in the forehead.

For a brief moment there was no sound at all save an unsettling squish, and Virago appeared to be suspended in mid-air as his stick locked in place in the centre's skull. The Wildfire centre's legs buckled under him and he collapsed to his knees as Virago's momentum carried him bodily over the fallen man's head. As he adjusted to land on his skates, his movement inadvertently catapulted his stick, and the attached body over his own head, sending the now well dead player through the glass wall surrounding the rink, and resulting an improbable and impossibly fiery explosion as the body collided with the concrete wall.

The puck drifted idly down ice before bumping into Percy's idle stick, though he barely noticed, occupied as he was with constructing a wee snowcone out of the shavings on the ice. Virago swooped back as he grabbed the former centre's fallen stick from the ice, and took the puck off Percy's stick as he turned around to survey the ice, looking for either a teammate to pass the puck to or another player to possibly eviscerate.

Back near centre ice, Katie found herself nearly entirely free to move about, as the Wildfire captain Connard had headed across ice towards Danyael, who found himself doing his best to keep the questionably female Wildfire player between himself and the incensed winger. While the pair of Wildfire defenders were keeping themselves near the hulking mass that was Downhouser, Virago fired the puck up the left side of the boards to Katie with tremendous force, if little accuracy. The puck coasted past Katie and cleared its way into the Wildfire zone, and the Irish lass's speed allowed her to quickly outstrip the defenders as they hastily readjusted to try and catch her. Find herself one-on-one with the Wildfire goalie, she tried to remember things she'd seen players do back when she only bet on the games, instead of being thrust into them. Faking a short slap, she drew the goalie slightly out of possession before flicking the puck up and sending it hurtling towards the top corner of the net. Just when it seemed she'd beaten the goalie with her feint, the flailing Wildfire goalie managed to kick the opposite pole of the net, and to Katie's disappointment adjusting just enough to cause her shot to bounce forcefully off the post.

As Katie turned to look for a ref, she was immediately blindsided by one of the Wildfire defensemen, sending her coursing across the ice on her back and into the boards. As she regained her composure she noticed the defence had taken the puck up ice, leaving her woefully out of position. Cursing her luck, she righted herself and took off in pursuit.

At centre ice, Danyael attempted to block the speeding defensemen, but found himself having to quickly move out of position while the intimidating Wildfire captain attempt to smash him into the ice. His momentary loss of position allowed the defencemen to clear the puck up to the second defensemen, who had made his way up past the floundering Downhouser and was no just crossing into the team's end.

Vitali looked up at the Wildfire player crossing into his end. As Virago hastily tried to cut him off and Percy appeared to be constructing a small village of snowmen, his old instincts from playing goal as a child in the Ukraine kicked in, and within seconds he found himself reading the player's movements like an open book.

Roger LaRocque. Age 27. Kicked off his pee-wee team for fighting the referee. Parents divorced. Never had a meaningful relationship. Likes Chinese food and hackysack. Can't do long division. Once had an unfortunate encounter with an angry dog. Can't spell hospital. About to feint a wide shot and fire a hard slapshot top left.

Before he could even comprehend the information he'd just absorbed he was called upon to act. He saw the feint without even trying, and counter-intuitively streaked to the opposite side of the net just in time to glove the sudden slapshot as it sailed towards the twine. Clamping down on the puck as the defenceman closed in, play was stopped as a harsh whistle split the air. Vitali looked up to see the remaining Wildfire players filing off the ice onto their bench, and a loud voice came out over the sound system.

”END OF THE FIRST PERIOD. CURRENT SCORE; WILDFIRES: ZERO, FANTASTI'S LAPDOGS: ZERO. YOU HAVE ONE MINUTE BEFORE THE NEXT PERIOD.”

There is some quiet applause from The Canadian in the arena seating, and the team is quickly directed back to their bench by the sudden appearance of a Zamboni sweeping the ice.
