    Announcing the Kingsfoil Championship League

    Michel Delving, Shire April 1 –Mayor Will Whitfoot unveiled plans today for Middle-earth’s first major sports league, the Kingsfoil Championship league. The league will bring together teams from as far away Dunland and possibly beyond, though Mayor Whitfoot did acknowledge events in the east were a source of concern for some teams and their ability to travel at this time.

    Mayor Tenderlarch must be a bit annoyed at his name being wrong though ...

    Brilliant! Will this mean the Thornley Construction Company is busy with their final work on their current construction site? Or will they simply dispatch a new team of construction workers?

    The idea of an activity so close to hockey got me super excited. Ah well, maybe the Council can try to get this for real!?

    I think they've committed to a team, but I doubt very much they'd accomplish anything.

    Well done article for April 1st I will be watching as the new stadium rises and will visit Sandson to look for the increase in the chicken population.

    The outfits are being supplied by Lalia. While all she needs to make the strips are a couple of light leathers and some dye, her corporate tie-ins with Angmidas, Umbaro, and AberCurunir and Fitch mean she is charging ordinary hobbits 2000g per shirt.

    I always liked this game and am glad to see it back in game. It was one of the funniest most enjoyable repeatable quests I did waaaaay back when.

    Glad to see it back after 6+ years of retirement. Great work Devs.

    I am sure many first time players of this game will love it also. For me there was nothing like seeing a chicken fly through the air with a little assist from my club!!!!

    Edit: the write up was one of the funniest I have read. Love the part about the Ettenmoor's team eating the other team. ROFL funny.
    I wonder what IS behind that waterfall?

    Back in 2013, I got tired of seeing an empty stadium and tried to come up with a system to play using the game mechanics. Viola, ORCBALL was born! As you can tell, ORCBALL has a lot of potential!
