Right out of the gates Booker heads straight for Ginger, flattening her with a tackle. But Ginger shakes it off and in a vengeful rage destroys Booker and his teammate Quinn. But a battered Booker won't be deterred. He fights through the injury and scores two 20 pointers despite some excellent goaltending by Sprye. Absolutely brilliant chasing! This man is invincible! Mo answers with two goals of his own, a nice 20 pointer and then after a fakeout to the largest goalpost sinks a beautifully aimed 30 point shot, leaving a confused Walltur defending the empty 10 pointer. Fangral makes an early attempt to end the game, but the snitch escapes and the period comes a close at 50-40 Banshees. It's a tight game, but will the Cuddlepuffs overcome their injuries to stay competitive in this match?
Heading into the second all eyes are on our Beaters having fought hard in the first period. It looks like they're all looking to rest up a bit before heading out again after the beatings they've taken. They're back on the field, Ginger takes another swipe at Booker and Quinn taking away whatever recovery they've made, she's got it out for them! Quinn changes targets this round wailing on both the Banshee's Fangral and Mo. Walltur is shoring up the Cuddlepuff defense easily blocking an attempt to score by Mo. On the other side of the field Booker is taking his shot at the Banshees, just barely getting the quaffle through for a solid 20 points, bringing them ahead of the Banshees by ten. Mo tries to gain some ground aiming for the Medium hoop and releases the quaffle too soon sending it flying off out of bounds. Booker circles back, still injured and attempts another shot at the teams smaller goal but is rebuffed by Sprye's tough defense. Morris goes for another goal but can't make it in, with the period ending it looks like the Cuddlepuffs are giving the Banshees a run for their money!
A sudden dash by both Seekers straight across the pitch - it looks like we've spotted the snitch, folks! Neck and neck they're rushing for it, Fangral pulls ahead at the last second taking the snitch out of the air just before Morris can reach it.
Walltur: Mmk, I can see that now

Vester Lombard: Beating a seeker in the 4th is pretty huge. Each IP is essentially erasing the effect of one of their successful searches.

Quinn Starling: Yeah, I would have hit Ginger more if I thought she'd rest up or if you'd heal her. But I figured that you guys would maybe leave her at 2 since that was her max, especially since we decided to stay inujurred, too Lol

Quinn Starling: We planned back between periods 2-3 to consider staying injured if we got to -3 again, to waste any coming beatings. If you aim for low DCs, have enough skill to make up for the IP, AND get lucky, it's sometimes worth it to keep the damage & keep rolling

Vester Lombard: I think in the 2nd period you definitely have to rest. 3rd period, maybe, pending your team strategy. 4th period, probably not.

Sprye Tatel: In the interest of not adding a new post each day to the Space Debate threads, would we be interested in sharing ideas via Google Docs? tinyurl.com/zlk8sb3

Quinn Starling: I'm in favor of death penalty for illegal pretty floral bonnets. I think that needs to be an argument that happens Lol
Mar 21, 2016 13:54:41 GMT
Walltur: Pro, but under the argument that all viewers of the bonnet be executed, rather than the wearer. Deadly illegal bonnets
Mar 22, 2016 4:16:02 GMT
Quinn Starling: Depends on how pretty. We'd need a numerical rating scale, to start. Any bonnet rated 6 or over (by 2/3 vote of galactic council) is determined "pretty" and a single flower may be defined as "floral." Any fixture worn upon the head may serve as "bonnet."
Mar 22, 2016 15:54:13 GMT
Quinn Starling: (that's on a scale of 1-10) And I'd be against death penalty for illegal ones (unregistered, obtained illegally, etc.) Jail sentencing and community work are appropriate, but not death penalty. Too extreme.
Mar 22, 2016 15:56:18 GMT
Vester Lombard: While I am against the death penalty for pretty floral bonnets, I do think that all people who have encountered the bonnet should have their brains slightly melted. I think this would both save lives and prevent any risk of spreading that fashion
Mar 22, 2016 16:25:34 GMT
Sprye Tatel: Again with the slightly-melting brains proposal? Seems very convenient for the Muppet-race; who can re-grow/stuff brain cells! Whose pocket are you in? Who is pulling your strings!?
Mar 22, 2016 17:16:41 GMT
Sprye Tatel: I say that the punishment should fit the crime: The penalty for Pretty Floral Bonnet's (PFB's) should be death by PFB!

Quinn Starling: I have found my people. This is where I belong <3

Walltur: Any games coming down the pipe? Online practice game of Cornucopia?

Vester Lombard: If you guys want we could try doing some online Galactic Debate. It would lose a bit of the spontaneous improv element when played on the forum, but maybe it could at least help figure out which cards are fun or boring.

Quinn Starling: We could schedule a "live" session and either skype or have the speaker type up their response within a certain time frame. So, speaker says they're free at 9pm. At 8:55 they're given their topic, then they have from 9:00-9:05 to type up their platform...?
