Many thanks to Apox for hosting both this season and our series - thanks for putting up with my endless questioning about minor details to get a sentence or two right, and for being a generally sunny and lovely person. Muldoney will have his revenge, I'm sure... More to come Tuesday or Wednesda...

Well done to Apox for that *hell* of a performance - I'll admit this was quite a challenge to write, and most of it was done in one sitting while struggling with an ear infection and general work-related nonsense unfortunately. Bits of it might therefore not make sense, so please point out if I...

I feel...awful, I'll admit; I was able to do the scorecard but my head's been pounding and I've been feeling in no condition to do much - so I might be able to edit an RP-lette in later, I might not, my apologies in advance to Apox. Hopefully I can recover in time for the third Test! ht...

Ouch - sorry Elejamie , I think we went a bit overboard here! Thanks very much for visiting though, I've found these RPs a bit tricky to write but it's been good practice and I'd like to think some good stuff has come out of it. Hopefully you can get another series scheduled and get a w...

Another hard one to write for some reason - although I've recently taken up curling, so I think the physical exhaustion I've been suffering from that might be a factor! Hopefully this is somewhat legible though - I'm going to be trying a couple of different things for the tour of Apox, ...

This took a long time to write - it was one of those Apoxballer scores that led you down the path of one result, so the actual flow of the game was reasonably easy to work out, but boy did it ever get lots and lots of events packed into it...controversy, heroism, match-changing partnerships, match-...

Would you like to visit the Plough Islands for a three-Test series on MDs 4-6?

8-10 works, shall we get that scheduled?

After the last two this looks like it was a more entertaining game - I might have been a bit unlucky in the second round but I think there's little shame ICly in losing in the way we have. And I'm glad those who've told me they enjoy my RPs have been doing so, hopefully these last two w...
