  1. Just do it. Slit his throat. He's lying there, waiting. "No" she said. The man in the barber chair opened his eyes looking up at her, her thick black fringe sticking to her forehead, she was profusely sweating. "I-is everything alright?" He stuttered. Valerie just smiled, before sliding her straight edge back across his supple throat, then back down again, taking away the soap with it. She wiped the blade on the flannel over his shoulder, "DONE" she exclaimed; an odd tone of relief rang through her voice. What a waste of time. She left him in the chair, getting some cold water to drink in the back of shop- "cool and calm" she said to herself quietly, staring straight at the water settling down after her swig. "Cool and calm". "Valerie." Edge interrupted her thoughts, "its time, get your kit, we're about to kick off." Valerie nodded at Edge, "I'll be there shortly." The Barbers Guild team captain, nodded and replied, "good, don't want to lose our star so soon." He winked and left, laughing. What was so funny, she thought to herself- probably at what you did to that baker boy last week. She shook the voice from her head and walked back into the barber shop. The Barbers Guild were relatively new to the game of Guild Ball, but each district the guild was in, were trying players out for the main team. Valerie was the newest of this team, having only played one game, which she was reluctant to play in. She said she wouldn't play again after the incident but Edge had insisted she had to play one more game. One more game to impress the Longshanks. Edge had big plans for his team, really get the Barbers on the map, or as he would say "get a slice of the pie." Edge was the one who took her in when she had nowhere to go, he hadn't said he'd figured out where she'd come from, but Valerie thought he probably had guessed. Edge was different, the only person she'd met that she didn't have to stop her self from harming, she hadn't worked out why yet. There were quite a few people int he crowd, all Local to their region, but none Valerie knew, the rest of her team were waving and shouting to their friends and family. The opposing team were doing the same, members drawn in from the local Gardeners Guild. Gardening was a trade only the wealthy could afford, so it was obvious how they had special kits made up embroidered and clean. Valerie's kit wouldn't come clean. The stain of the baker boys blood still splattered up her sleeves. The Gardeners were all glaring at her, the Baker whose blood she was sporting was the cousin of the Gardeners team captain, so she thought he wouldn't be the most easy going in this game. The gardener captain was a tall man, white, styled hair, clean shaven with a little knick just below his chin. Clearly the sign he's started shaving his own face after last weeks game. Let's open that cut up "Stop it." She said to herself, "it's just a game, no one needs to get hurt." But someone will, either us, or them. Valerie hated to admit it, but she was right. The two captains shook hands and the Gardener whispered in Edges ear. Edge, a stocky man, bald head and a thick beard, turned round, his face white and ghost like. What he heard must have chilled him deeply. The score was in favour of the Gardeners and they were outnumbering the Barbers with 6 to 4, it was just Edge, Valerie, Soap, and old barber, a veteran of the century war and Tyson, Edge's pet chihuahua. A very small animal with a styled Mohawk between his ears. As He looked ridiculous, had little impact on the game, but he was very distracting and the crowd loved him. Whilst she was looking at the miniature dog, she saw him barking at Edge, who had two Gardeners laying into him. They stepped back as he collapsed, a pile of black cloth, beard and tattoos. She saw them laughing as time seemed to slow, and squaring up to Tyson, ready to attack the mascot. Tyson! "Don't worry Valerie, we've got this" she said reassuring the voice in her head. Valerie charged the two Gardeners before they could get too close to the dog, she slit the throats of the young one in one quick flurry with her straight edge. At the same time she grabbed the ponytail of the other and dragged him to the floor then started kicking his head, turning it to a bloody mush, glistening on the grounds. The crowd went silent, clearly in shock of this display of violence. She let out a deep breath, then slowly turned to the Gardener captain, his face whiter than Edge's was at the start of the match. Valerie wasn't in control now. She flicked her straight edge, cleaning it in an instant, she'd clearly done this before the Garner worried... "Her", Longshanks said to his hooded associate. "We want her in the Barbers Guild." "But, but she's uncontrollable, unhinged, unhealthy!" "She's perfect. She's fury, rage and beauty." The associate looked across the pitch at Valerie. Her thick black hair, messy and stuck to her face in a mix of blood, saliva and sweat. "Beauty?" He questioned, "are, are we looking at the same woman?" "Just picture it, the revenue. She'll draw them in for her beauty before the match, then keep them there with her displays of violence. Perfect to elevate this start up Guild to the big leagues." Longshanks started to laugh, the only sound in the crowd of people watching Valerie sat in the middle of the pitch, stroking Tyson, both of them covered in the Gardeners teams blood. "Calm and Cool. Calm and Cool." Valerie repeated over and over to herself and the little dog.

  4. Funnily enough, my local Hunters player listened to the cast and had a little mentoring from Mr Perkins and has turned his Hunters game completely around! So there must be something about it... Well for a while now I've been playing the "Attricimen " roster and Hunters have struggled against it at times because it can be so flexible. It's certainly something that I think season 3 will help them fix. Cheers, Saves me getting the link lol
  5. Salt in S3 and your take on changes

    Salt has always been a realistic goal threat. Sure his 1:4 kick meant you HAD to bonus time, but even if you didn't, it was still a 50/50 chance. Plus if you miss, he's likely just 4" away from the ball, so not in a bad spot at DEF5. however, when you bonus time, suddenly becomes a 2/4 which if you're already in range (which he can easily do from deployment line with the right set up) you're golden for an end of Turn goal. In season3, he just got turned up, he's always his 2/4 and his bonus time makes him 3/3 😱 Only needing 3s from Tap In, WITH THE SAME THREAT RANGE. Salt is my most regular goal scorer in my Attricimen, Just needs set up.
  6. Thanks for he feedback, I've passed this to Podbean, they said their Tech dept. are looking into it Personally I still think the way Jamie described the Hunters tactics in this still ring true with he new Hunters. Hearne has been turned up with a higher kick. Seenah can disengage himself. Minx is now awesome. Theron had lost some spark, but I think the rest of the changes make up for this.
  7. "To celebrate the success of "The Local Legend Big League", Mr Hall decided to throw a party, a celebration, a grand event, a Ball Of Legends! A date was selected, a venue chosen, guests to be invited when there wasn't 40,000 other things going on, or any Magical Gatherings! However, upon writing his invitations, he thought to himself, "everyone is a guild Ball hooligan or player....". He scribbled out "Formal Wear Required" and replaced with "Violence Optional", cancelled the food and ordered some trophies. The Ball Of Legends would crown a new Legend, and the crown, it would be stained with blood!" About: Hull's 3rd Guild Ball tournament and second hosted at Stronghold Games.

  8. What is the error message saying? I emailed PodBean and for their app they said make sure you're using the newest version of their app, 3.7.1 Still not sure on ITunes... waiting for their response.
  9. This is a problem I'm encountering and I can't seem to solve yet. however, I listen on my iTunes app on my iPod fine, 'my podbean app also works fine, the website works fine for me on chrome (mobile and pc) and my PC will play it through iTunes too. thats why it's difficult to fix, it works for some people, not for others.
  10. Double Dodge Episode 9 - The Quickening

    We in the U.K. have grown to fear Jack. He is the chosen one. I think in Britain we've all come to terms with Jack iron-manning the Saturday LCQ then taking the worlds. He wins almost as many tournaments as Steve, but the very image of this kid stood across from you smiling from underneath his 'fro, is bound to psyc out some of his opponents 😅 Theres nothing wrong with mascot goals. The majority of my goals have been scored with Salt.
  11. Help me pick a new team!

    You enjoy a 2/2 game with control and manipulative tactics? This sounds like a job for Morticians!
  12. Double Dodge Episode 9 - The Quickening

    Once again gents, setting the bar for the rest of us podcasters. Good work, funny and on point as always. As has been said above, I can imagine the final to have some level of Obulus/Fillet. Now you mention it, I want a Jack Vs Steve Newton Final; no offence Steve, with Jack taking the gold. Because nothing will make egomaniacs more salty than a 12 year old saying, "you're just bad at the game" 😂
  13. So does mine Yaan, so I'm going to make sure she gets lots of presents for her first Christmas.
  14. The Actor's Guild

    Personally, 8 really like the idea of them. I like the activation tactics and it looks fairly balanced. Good work!
