TEAM PROFILE: Lorien 'Dire' Avengers

For Wood Elves the long pass is everything, even more so than their High Elf cousins, and all of their effort goes into being an expert at throwing or receiving. No Wood Elf worth his salt is going to be weighed down by extra armour and be forced to lurk about and attempt to knock opposing players over. Instead they rely on their natural athletic ability to keep them out of trouble, which is normally enough - it takes a very agile or lucky opponent to lay a hand on a Wood Elf!

Team Profile
Originally called the Loren Avengers in their debut season of 2496, they quickly acquired the nickname 'dire' after their poor showings in the league. The Avengers then incorporated this insult into their official name for the 2498 season, though whether this is an acknowledgement of their abilities or a sly joke at their detractors expense, is unsure. One thing is for certain, and that is the inscrutable Elves aren't telling.

The Avengers find their level in the league without much acclimatisation; they finish bottom.

The Avengers sign Jordell Freshbreeze and the Wood Elves shown some improvement this season, finishing second bottom. At this rate they will win the league in 2503. Freshbreeze leaves the shores of Albion vowing never to return.

Gluttons for punishment, the Wood Elves sign up for a third league season. They have a calamitous time, suffering numerous casualties and failing to win a single game. Can the Avengers persuade Jordell back in time for next season?
