Here is the classified check:

An Alien Werewolf in London 2 4 Curse of the Bone
The Mad Dwarf 0 5 The Black Broo of Dyskund

To review the semi-finals: who else but the Statler and Waldorf of scenario punditry – Brian L Rowland and ‘Big’ Ron Livingstone.

“So Ron, after some very close battles in the previous rounds, both semi-finals were pretty clear cut.”

“The Bone crew played an absolute blinder. The Vargr boy, on his day he’s unplayable, but all that time-travelling homicidal mayhem must have taken its toll. He just couldn’t last the pace.”

“And the other semi?”

“Listen, the Mad Dwarf has been the star of this tournament. He’s taken on all-comers, he’s proved he can hack it on a wet night in Glorantha, he looked unstoppable. But ultimately, playing solo is tough, and those Broo, well… *chuckles* oh those Broo!”

“And so, here we are at the final. The Curse of the Bone takes on The Black Broo of Dyskund.”

“Yeah, it’s Cthulhu Now against Exploding Broo! Ken Rolston versus Marcus L Rowland. Hang on Brian, any relation?”

“Umm. Same time next week then Ron.”

3 Ghost Jackal Kill

Brian L Rowland and ‘Big’ Ron Livingstone chew these results over.

“Well Ron, the #ScenarioSlam threw up some very tasty battles. The ‘Mad’ derby was certainly a tight match.”

“That clash was madder than a Call of Cthulhu investigator at a Great Old Ones reunion party. But that canny Dwarf keeps battling through; he’s got a good engine on him. One swing of that axe in extra time, and those Mad Gods weren’t laughing anymore.”

“And with wins for Curse of the Bone and An Alien Werewolf in London, that’s the last of the scenarios from the AD&D league out.”

“Hmm, ol’ Sepp Gygax won’t be happy about that one. The Vargr lad was the difference in the match with the Embertrees boys. That deranged lupine alien fiend really likes to get in the faces of his opponents; Embertrees just couldn’t live with him.”

“And the last quarter-final: the tightest match of all.”

“There was nothing between these two during the whole battle Brian. I couldn’t call it; no-one could. Penalties is always a bit of a lottery. Admittedly, the Broo striker spontaneously exploding just as Theda Bara took her spot kick was questionable behaviour – I’m surprised the ref let that go.”

“Onward to the semi-finals Ron. Your thoughts?”

“We’ve got four quality scenarios left in the competition, Brian. The semis are going to be brutal. Bring ’em on!”

The Mad Dwarf 7 1 Heart of the Dark

Once again we join Brian L Rowland and Ron Livingstone to analyse the results.

“Well Ron, that’s the #ScenarioSlam second round completed. Some emphatic wins, and a few surprises too. Your highlights?”

“The Mad Dwarf just gets madder and madder. The Heart of the Dark boys just couldn’t live with him. There were some handbags early doors between the Mad Gods and those Green Horizon lads, but the Gods had the last laugh. See what I did there Brian?”

“Yes, thanks Ron. After a strong first round, the representatives from the Traveller league took a bit of a battering this time round.”

“Absolutely. I don’t think anyone was expecting Amber to Red, The Sable Rose Affair and Smile Please to all go out. What a shocker! I’ve heard the Amber lads took the loss badly. They flew the St Christopher to low orbit and then opened up on the Alien Werewolf team bus with the triple laser turret. Let’s hope the homicidal Vargr can run that off before the next round.”

“Indeed. Could those Black Broo be the surprise package of the competition this year?”

“Beating Smile Please was quite a result for those vile pestilential goatkin. The Smile Please lads just weren’t working as a team. I think there’s trouble on the Silver Wolf; maybe Captain Logad has lost the state room.”

“It was a strong showing by Ghost Jackal Kill putting out The Sable Rose Affair. They’re one to watch I think Ron. What are your thoughts on the all-Cthulhu tie?”

“I expected that to be close, but those zombies from Paddington soon fell apart. Ahahahahaha!”

“Ahem. Yes. Join us soon for the quarter-final draw. Excited Ron?”

“Too right. It’s the greatest scenario competition in the world, Brian.”
