The United States of HUElavia


History: HUElavia is a nation of over 1.2 Million Square Miles that is home to the Hueti, the native people of the land. The country was colonized in the late 1600s by Portuzians (Portuguese) and Aestellians (Spaniards) and was basically split off by both countries for over 200 years. Eventually, immigrants came and decided that the nation needed to get off from Colonial power and the country split into two, East HUElavia and West HUElavia, in 1897. Although, the country merged together into HUElavia in 1900, and the nation saw a massive growth of population from immigrants and a rising birth rate. Many of the immigrants that came included the following: Euskati (Basque), Tallian (Italians), Franc (French), Rus (Russians), Breitzen (Germans) Ibo (Nigerians), Tanden (Berber), Quhah (Arabic), Yamoto (Japanese), Guang Tzu (Chinese), Cog (Vietnamese), Pinoy (Filipino), and Jeong (Korean). While there has been bouts of Conservative times in the country, HUElavia has been mainly a Liberal society where people are free to do generally whatever they want, and today there is a massive level of scientific and technological advancement in the country that makes things such as transportation very reliable.

Culture: HUElavia is mainly influenced by Portuzian and Astellian culture, but there are regions that are their own cultural influence from the large groups of immigrants in that area. English, Portuguese and Spanish are the official languages. Galician serves as the Lingua Franca of the country, with significant populations that speak French, Italian, German, Russian, Basque, Cantonese, Japanese, Vietnamese, Tagalog, Korean, Arabic, Ibo, and Hueti. In terms of dishes, Portuguese and Spanish dishes are mainly eaten, along with some Native dishes, but regional dishes such as French, Italian, German, Russian, Berber, Nigerian, Arabic, Japanese, Chinese, Filipino, Vietnamese, and Korean can be found virtually everywhere. In terms of Religion, Christianity is the majority Religion, with Roman Catholicism being the main form of Christianity, with a sizable portion of Protestantism. Judaism, Islam, Shinto, Buddhism, and Native Religions are also found in the country, and there is virtually a place of worship for many religions. In music, traditional Portuguese, Spanish, and Latin music are popular, but there are high interests in Asian Music (Pop, Rock, and Hip Hop), French (Pop, Rap, and Hip Hop), Italian, and Russian Hardbass. HUElavia does have a massive entertainment industry, so feel free to view HUElavian movies and shows in whereever you can watch. You could also enjoy all the things we have to offer in our Malls spotted all around the country. In terms of clothing, save for those in buisness and politics or those for fancy events, people tend to dress casually with men wearing t-shirts, jeans or shorts, while women may wear t-shirts, jeans or shorts, or dresses or blouses. Swim suits are also worn in the costal areas as well. These clothes are worn to stay cool in the hot and humid temperatures of the country. Although, it is not uncommon to see people go about their day naked due to the heat and humidity, as well as the more lax laws regarding wearing clothes in public (The HUElavian Government recommends to look solely at their face, in order to avoid any accusations of sexual harassment). Due to current crime rates, there is a national curfew put in place for those 20 years old or younger. This would be apply to visiting fans, and they can only be exempt if they are with a relative or friend that has legal ability to watch over them. As a note, the crime rates have fallen significantly due to putting in new funds to welfare and law enforcement, as well as programs to keep people from going into criminal organizations.

People: HUElavians are a very multicultural and multiethnic population, with about 50% of the population claiming of being mixed race. While there are people who are fully of a certain ethnic origin, many come from different backgrounds and tend to identify with the culture they look the most like or feel the most attached to. HUElavians tend to be very intelligent with virtually every citizen over the age of 21 having some sort of formal schooling, whether it be from college or from trade school, thus it is not uncommon to hear serious debates as part of "light conversation." HUElavians tend to be very kind, compassionate, and cheerful, being among the best in the multiverse, but they're too honest to a fault, and they can come off rude with their remarks. They're also very healthy, with a very small amount of people suffering from Obesity, and many tend to be either slim, in form, or muscular. The average height for HUElavian Males is 1.78 Meters (5'10"), while the average height for HUElavian Females is 1.58 Meters (5'2"). As a note, due to the tax cuts, especially in the field of Welfare, Crime rates have skyrocketed and there is a notable amount of murder that goes on in shady areas. For the fans and teams, please stay in among yourselves, or stay around public areas in order to avoid trouble. Please follow orders from local authorities in order to stay safe.
What to do: HUElavia is a massive country with many things to do. From attending the games, to visiting cultural locations to visiting natural areas, there is something for everyone to do in HUElavia. Some of these things to do include: Going to the beach, visiting a national park, going to intellectual parks to discuss a variety of topics, going to parties, going to conventions (from sci-fi, to anime, to gaming), visit cultural centers in different regions to learn firsthand the different cultures of the country, go to libraries, go to restaurants, go to indoor pools, go to parks to play sports or have a picnic or to skate, or visit one of our many shopping malls and restaurants.

Accomodations: Fans travelling from all over will be able to take plane or ship to the country and arrive to any of the hosting cities. There are hotels available not far from the stadiums, usually either a walk, bus ride, or metro ride will get them to the stadium quick. If coming from a different dimension, we do have aircrafts and busses designed to travel to a different dimension in order to pick up passengers of different varieties (thanks to the advances in HUElavian science and technology).

Map and Venues

Venues:

Arena Nacional, Curumba (25,000)

Banco da HUElavia Arena, HUEsilia (21,000)

Known as the "HUEliwood" of HUElavia, this is a massive place for entertainment in HUElavia.

Many moviestars do live in this city, and the city's sights allow for constant filming to occur.

HUGames Arena, Sega (20,000)

The Cultural Capital of the Yamoto people, Sega is the "Silicon Valley" of HUElavia. Most of HUElavia's tech companies are either based in this city or hold a major firm for the companies. The place is filled with cultural attractions for the Yamoto people, and there is a variety of interesting places to visit. Sega is also the video game capital of HUElavia, with HUElavian video game companies mainly being from here. The city is a massive hub for young tourists who are into geek culture, due to the gaming scene and the large-scale anime conventions that happen every season.

Arena Santos, San Rafael (19,250)

The cultural capital of the Astellians, where Spanish was first spoken. Most of the architecture of this city reflects the Astellian culture, and the culture is very high and esquisite.

Jaguar Center, Pamallu (19,000)

The cultural capital of the Hueti, the natives of HUElavia. One of two capitals for the culture, there is a heavy influence of Hueti culture, but some influence from Astellians and Portuzians.

HUElines Arena, Sao Salvador (18,500)

The cultural capital of the Portuzians, where Portuguese was first spoken. Portuzian culture dominates the city, where it has influenced the national thought and language of HUElavia.

There is also a large gambling culture in Sao Salvador, where casinos can be found in every district.

Arena Acuatica, Bello Mar (16,000)

A major city where beach culture influences the city. The beaches are thought to be the very best in HUElavia and the waters are very blue and beautiful.

Hoon Electronics Arena, Goang (14,500)

The cultural capital of the Jeong people, and one of the more recent cities to be developed. It is becoming a rising tourist attraction, as it grows to rival the likes of Sega in terms of technology, and Jeong cuisine makes it very popular for tourists to visit and to buy foods and cooking supplies from here to bring home. It is also a particular place of interest for young tourists, particularly young females, due to the music scene in Goang. It's also a rising place of interest for shooting movies and shows.

Arena football is hardly a mainstream sport in Golgothastan, but fortunately the small squad size means it has been popular to scratch together a squad. Arena football is mostly played in cities, at nights, by amateurs. Golgothastan operates under the platoon system: six two-way players, with two specialists on either side of the ball.

Quarterback

Bastían Bjarkansson

The only player on the team with any professional experience, Bastían played Austinite football in college and subsequently has played on several teams, of both Austinite football and arena football, around the world, usually as a back-up. He has a big, if slightly erratic arm, and loves to scramble both broken plays and broken eggs. Team captain.

Offensive specialist

Þorberg Gauason

One of the most offensive people in all Golgothastan, Þorberg is a fishmonger by trade, with excellent hands and the ability to catch almost anything thrown his way. Unfortunately once he has it, he’s not particularly fast, agile, or familiar with basic playing rules.

Iron men

Hásteinn Líamsson
Ottó Heimisson
Gunnsteinn Hallþórsson
Vöggur Snæhólmsson
Árgils Mortansson
Príor Sólimannsson

Construction workers, warehouse hands, artificial inseminators of wild samskeyti … these are the big, hard men whose physiques and temperaments reflect their day jobs, and carry over into doing the physical stuff on the field, whether it’s playing as linemen, tight ends and fullbacks on offense, or linemen, linebackers and safeties on defense, fueled on hearty diets of turnip and extra rations of wodka.

Defensive specialists

Tonni Trúmannsson
Jónatan Eyleifsson

The team’s two player-coaches are stats nerd computer guys, who spend a lot of time when they should be doing network admin on Golgothastan’s creaking internet instead playing fantasy arena football. They’re a bit more competent than the rest of the side, but probably not a physical match for the world’s best.

Kicker

Dissý Sveinmarsdóttir

The youngest member of the team, Dissý has just one job – kicking the ball – which she does pretty well. A college soccer player, she started playing arena football to help pay for school.

RP Permissions
Choose my scorers: Yes, but use Dissý for kicks
Godmod scoring events: Yes
RP injuries to my players: Yes, but I have no subs so no game-ending injuries
Godmod injuries to my players: Yes, as above
Suspend my players: No
Godmod suspension events: No
Godmod other events: Yes, you have more or less total freedom

Postby Grey County » Sun Feb 28, 2021 9:38 am

Grey County Arena Football Team Arrives in HUElavia
The Grey County Arena Football team has arrived in the Capital City of HUElavia Curumba ahead of their opening day match against host HUElavia in the famous Arena Nacional. The Team will be holding a Light practice tonight at a nearby practice field before checking in to a local hotel with a state of the art Gym and pool as well as a top-level nutritional kitchen. The Team will hold a full team practice tomorrow and the opening day lineup will be released after that practice. The Coach has recently said that "He has never been so excited for an opening game before" and "I think the atmosphere will be amazing and hopefully we can put a good showing for the crowd and start our campaign off right"

HUElavia Enters Arena Bowl as Hosts with Optimism!


For the fourth time in the nation's history, HUElavia will be hosting a competition in the Multiverse. This time around, it is the Arena Bowl, the World Cup for Arena Football. Arena Football is the indoor equivalent of regular Gridiron Football, much like how Futsal (a sport that HUElavia has dominated in) is the indoor equivalent to Football. The nation won the bid after being the only bidder, as well as giving a very detailed bid regarding the tournament itself.

After a lackluster 0-3 Group Stage exit in Arena Bowl VII, the team is looking to develop well. The team is filled with some of the top talents of HUElavian College Football, where they look to be scouted well by teams across the HUElavian Gridiron Football League (HGFL). While it isn't known how far HUElavia will be going in the tournament, there is optimism this tournament can bid the interest of Gridiron Football in the country. Not to mention, this hosting duty helps build the country's repertoire on hosting sporting tournaments for a variety of sports in terms of the games itself and the organization of the competition itself.

Fans from all over the Multiverse are coming in solid groups to enjoy the games in HUElavia, especially since this is the largest tournament to date in Arena Bowl history. HUElavian fans will be flocking to the arenas to support the team in their Group Stage matches, and hopefully even more.

As hosts, HUElavia was put in Group A, along with the likes of Grey County, The Crowned Republic, and Kohnhead. HUElavia will play in Arena Nacional in Curumba against Grey County for the opening match, followed by HUElines Arena, in Sao Salvador against The Crowned Republic, and at MetroHUE Centre, in Lourdes against Kohnhead. The team feels optimistic they can advance to the Round-of-16. For this tournament, there is 6 groups, of which the Top 2 of each group and the four best 3rd Place teams will advance to the Round-of-16.

Regardless of what happens, the country is excited to be hosting another tournament and showing off HUElavian culture and society to the Multiverse. Even though there has been issues with crime in the country recently, there is optimism this tournament can go well and fans can be safe wherever they go.

Here's to what can be the greatest Arena Bowl tournament yet!

FORCA HUELAVIA! VAMOS HUELAVIA! GO HUELAVIA!

The Gohulian Republic of Bunkaiia
Repobilikà Gohulei là Bàñkaïa


Nation Name: The Gohulian Republic of Bunkaiia
Shortened Name: Bunkaiia
Demonym: Bunkaiian
Team colours: Burgundy-Dark Red, Seagreen, Yellow
Team Info: After then-teenager (Vohuka Kahinu) saw a vision after ritually consuming the fruit of the holy Uakuak tree atop of Mount Jua Girei upon turning 13 as is customary for all Bunkaiian children. Kahinu came to the conclusion that it was his destiny to play at the HUElavianArena football competition. He has dedicated his life to learning the rules and playing internationally as much as possible. Now at the age of 26 and with the backing of the Remishi Gohul, Mrs. Šàdiboïa, (one of the five Heads of State of Bunkaiia, who is chiefly responsible for leisure and cultural activities sponsored by the government), Kahinu has finally mustered enough fellow players and support to form a national team to participate. Otherwise, Arena Football is not known at all in Bunkaiia. British administrators had introduced Rugby in the 1950s, which is the closest sport akin to it.
It is widely expected that Kahinu's Team will not perform well, however, there is much interest in Bunkaiia on what exactly will transpire for Kahinu as his story has garnered much curiosity at home.

Great question!

The collegiate athletes are not being compensated, to avoid any clashes with Ranorian College Football.

The quarterback, Astrid Verona, is the perceived next starter for the Richardson University Governors. She apparently convinced Quan Mullins, Elon Forbes, and Garry Fulchs to come out for the arena bowl as well, all young wideouts on the team, along with Elliot Roach, the running back. The linemen, meanwhile, are all former small school defensive starters. Err, besides Heinz. For the most part, their weight isn't what you'd expect of a pro, so don't expect our defensive front to be doing much. Oh, and Lil' Clorox! Ranoria's most successful rapper decided that he thought this would be a good time, so here he is, as a defensive specialist!

This...should be interesting.

Sarzonia Stars

Head Coach: Chad Embry (38 years old)
Recently retired from a playing career in Delaclava as a well-traveled backup quarterback, Embry brings a conventional style of offense for arena gridball and a reputation as a players' coach. He calls his own offensive plays.

Assistant head coach/defensive coordinator: Kristin Walters (49 years old)
Walters takes over for the now-retired Skip Donahue, bringing with her the intention of adopting a more disciplined approach with fewer blitzes.

Special teams coordinator: Thad Regala (44 years old)
Regala punted for 11 years in the Sarzonian outdoor gridball system, then took on an apprenticeship as an assistant coach at various high schools and universities before he became a special teams assistant with Catherina in the Delaclav indoor gridball league.

Quarterbacks coach: Gavin Davis (34 years old)
Davis played in the Sarzonian outdoor league for years, but he's best known as the starting quarterback for Sarzonia's two-time World Bowl champion national gridball team.

Line coach: Joe Agnew (48 years old)
Agnew played five years in the now-defunct Sarzonian gridball league, earning the league's best two-way player honours in 2006.

Running backs/linebackers coach: Cal Pendry (40 years old)
Pendry played linebacker for nine seasons in the outdoor game and began coaching his daughter as a running back for her university gridball team.

Receivers/defensive backs coach: Philip Longley (42 years old)
Longley played wide receiver for 11 years and played three games as a free safety when his outdoor gridball team suffered multiple injuries in its defensive secondary. He served as a defensive backs coach for the Raleigh Knights semipro side in Sarzonia for four years.

ROSTER
Starting Lineup (10 players are listed; one quarterback and one defensive specialist and one kicker)
QB 12 Clark Weston (6-foot-2, 225 pounds), known as a pocket passer with a strong deep arm, he isn't going to gain a lot of yards on the ground, but he can be elusive in the pocket
RB/LB 21 Alvin Pendry (5-foot-8, 195 pounds), small and elusive, he's able to duck under hits and prevent himself from getting the brunt of the most vicious contact.
WR/CB 23 Sylvain Landry (6-foot-1, 200 pounds), great combination of size and speed and great hands make him a terrific all around threat. Still a work in progress as a defensive back.
WR/CB 34 Barry Tomlin (5-foot-9, 182 pounds), absolute burner on offense who's expected to be a shutdown corner on defense.
TE/LB 46 Lawrence Tyler (6-foot-2, 230 pounds), better known as a terrifying linebacker and phenomenal hitter than a tight end, although he's a good possession receiver when needed
OT/DT 60 Asante Daniels (6-foot-5, 329 pounds), great blind side blocker who can take up space on the defensive line and push back most offensive tackles
C/NT 53 Howie Bostic (6-foot-3, 296 pounds), arguably the smartest player on the roster; he calls all the line signals on both sides of the ball
OT/DT 70 Kyle Michaels (6-foot-4, 300 pounds), brilliant pass rusher who's made impressive strides as a blocker on offense.
DS 33 Dylan Geoffrey (6-foot-3, 215 pounds), a ferocious hitter with the coverage ability of a cornerback, he can often resolve matchup problems with bigger, faster receivers if necessary
K: Joe Avant (6-foot-2, 205 pounds), one of the few kickers who works out with and does drills with the team, he can often be seen hanging out with the receivers/defensive backs and can make the occasional special teams tackle

Reserves
QB 10 Ja'relle Gaffney (6-foot-0, 195 pounds), unlike Weston, Gaffney is a scrambler. He does not have the best deep arm, but he's deadly accurate on short to medium throws.
RB/LB 39 John Crowley (6-foot-1, 235 pounds), he often handles the short-yardage role and can bring a powerful running style to spell the fleet Pendry.
OL/DL 63 Reggie Thompson (6-foot-3, 320 pounds), mostly a tackle, but can play center or nose tackle in an emergency
OL/DL 77 Hugh Thomas (6-foot-6, 350 pounds), he's a brick wall and often plays nose tackle on defense and offensive tackle
FB/LB 52 Reed Davis (5-foot-11, 260 pounds), no relation to the quarterbacks coach; known more for being an edge rusher on defense
WR/DB 80 Willie Laws (5-foot-10, 185 pounds), played defensive back in the outdoor game; this is his first time potentially playing offense and it's his first exposure to the indoor game
WR/DB 82 Chris Stallworth (6-foot, 200 pounds), he grew up with the indoor game, and is the best combination of offensive and defensive skillsets on the roster.
DS 34 Kevin Lowery (6-foot-1, 200 pounds), he played strong safety in college and in the outdoor game.

Sooner or later, bronze medals won't be good enough.

The Sarzonian national indoor gridball team may be fortunate that it plies its trade in a code of a sport that's easily brushed aside as a minor tournament. However, that doesn't mean that forever being bronze medalists will be accepted for long by the supporters they do have.

The Stars returned to the NS Arena Bowl after an absence and qualified for the semifinals in both tournaments before falling short to its eventual champions (St. Kanye in Arena Bowl VI) and its eventual finalists (Abanhfleft in Arena Bowl VII). They came out on the medal stand with bronze in each tournament, but Coach Chad Embry is under no illusions that his job will be safe if his team fall short of gold.

"We've done well enough the first tournament after a lengthy absence," he said. "We did well to hold St. Kanye to its fewest points by far and its closest margin of victory in the entire Arena Bowl our first time back. We ran out of gas the next time out against Abanhfleft, but we're expecting to do better this time around."

The Stars will be missing two of their signature rivals in this edition as St. Kanye and Delaclava both opted not to send a team. The Stars will make up for that by having a traditional gridball rival in their group with Allamunnic States joining Lisander and Bunkalia in Group F. Embry said the long ago outdoor gridball rivalry between Allamunnic States and Sarzonia would "not likely" carry over, but added that anything was possible.

"They were one of the important teams our outdoor teams faced in the early days of the World Bowl," Embry said of Allamunnic States. "Once you put on the pads and the kits, it still says Sarzonia. It still says Allamunnic States. We may have the kind of rivalry we've always wanted."

Of course, another knockout round matchup against Abanhfleft would also meet that desire for a rival. The Stars knocked out Abanhfleft in the quarterfinals of Arena Bowl VI and lost to them in the semifinals of Arena Bowl VII. Another matchup would make for a so-called rubber match, but Embry warned his team not to look past the team's opponents in the group stage.

"We have to get to the knockout rounds first," he said. "We have to start by playing each match as it happens and not allowing ourselves to get distracted."

Embry faces the Arena Bowl with a brand new defensive coordinator as Skip Donohue announced his retirement before the start of training camp. Embry hired Kristen Walters, who served as defensive coordinator for a women's professional gridball team for five seasons before its league went defunct.

"Walters has a great defensive mind," Embry said. "She wants us to minimise penalties and play sound, fundamental gridball, and that is in sync with what I want from this team. She's a natural fit as both defensive coordinator and assistant head coach."

Lisander Gridiron Football National Team
Os Linces (The Lynxes)


SOME BRIEF WORDS
The Arena Bowl V Champions returns for another try on the Arena Bowl. But don't expect great things from this team for now. It is a team in restructuring, made up of players selected from National Arena League teams. The only thing new for this season is the new nickname. The Lynx (Lynx lisanderiensis) was chosen as the new mascot of the team for this season, and it already shows its grace on the uniform, which had few changes.

Gridiron Football in Lisander is not professional. The more correct term is perhaps "subsidised". Due to the financial inconstancy caused by the NAFL (an entity that acts as both Federation and National League), Gridiron Football in Lisander survives mostly on small sponsorships and the pockets of its own players, who are amateurs. Another obstacle to the growth of this sport in Lisander is the unintended association made with Rugby League, an ever-frowned-upon code in the country, which is kind of devoted to the Rugby Union.

With little money, but a few hundred loyal and dedicated players to the sport at various levels (League, College, Full-pad amateurs, Arena Football, Flag Football, Beach Football), and among these, some benefactors unafraid to spend money on the sport, Gridiron Football keeps developing with the dream of one day reaching World Bowl success. While this dream is not possible, the NAFL seeks to popularise the sport with less challenging opportunities such as the Arena Bowl.

However, being in the same group of 6-time World Bowl Champions Allamunnic States and 2-time World Bowl Champions Sarzonia, two powerhouses of the sport, lights up a yellow light in Eric Jones' locker room.

Kriegiersien Football team starts successful into Arena Bowl VII

After ending the World Bowl with only one win and three losses, smashed 44-0 by Cassadaigua at the end, the Kriegiesien team rushed to HUElavia to in turn smash Devonta with 20-0. The same nation that they had beaten 82-26 in the group stage of the last Arena Bowl in Golgothastan.

"Arena Football is almost a different sport, you can pummel your opponents much easier to the ground and just dash brute force through defenses with less movement", tried the Coach to explain the discrepancy in the performance of his team.

They denied that the World Bowl was just a warm-up for the Arena Bowl, where they wanted to defend their title.
“That is ridiculous, of course we want to win every tournament we take part”, grunted Fullback Jack Fat, who had been seen eating a burger during the game against Cassadaigua at the World Bowl on the field.
“And that most players that played at the World Bowl didn’t play the first match against Devonta is also just because of rotation. We just have enough canon fodder, I mean...variety in our big squad”, explained Coach Levan Hershel, who didn’t attend a single match at the World Bowl because of knee pain.

The first victory was celebrated with a banquet in the next Restaurant in Goang.

"Why are we here, again?" Quan Mullins shot a glare over at his quarterback, who grinned in response.

"Hey, coach said it couldn't hurt, and, well, you guys didn't say no!" She spun the ball on her finger and continued splitting it up between the three wide receivers as they warmed up. "Trust me, people will think it's hilarious. And bonus points, we get to say we're professionals!"

Elliot Roach deadpanned the overly optimistic passer as the ball bounced off his hands, "Right. Professionals, professionals who can't beat out college juniors and seniors."




Krauts Arena Football The Next Big Thing?
Probably Not, But Here's Some Takeaways From Opening Week!


So, while it was Ranoria's first foray into international arena football, it was still a good bit of fun!


Despite a couple slip ups, particularly with an out-of-practice offensive line and Astrid Verona struggling against pressure, the first week went relatively smoothly with a 17-0 win. Astrid was, of course, the biggest name on the ticket, but having some Governor wideouts in the rotation certainly doesn't hurt either.

Now, let's get into those takeaways from the opening matchday!

1: Everyone on the field is mobile, and that has to include quarterbacks

Astrid prefers to stick in the pocket, but her athleticism served her well, as she finished with thirty three rushing yards. She nearly scored as well, extending the ball out to the pylon, but ended having to loft the to Quan Mullins in the corner to get that touchdown.

2: The cast is different for every squad, and it makes for some interesting matchups

From old men with dad bods on our line (who are indeed plenty strong) to crossfit athletes, blue collar workers, you name it. No one has any idea what the norm is for these players, and we are here for it. Hell, we have a professional rapper with very little in terms of athleticism, it appears, as our defensive specialist.

3: No matter what happens, we are at least in for an interesting season

This will be different for a Ranorian fanbase used to contending in traditional, high-stakes gridiron. This isn't an industry with hundreds of millions flowing through each franchise or program's fingertips, it's a niche, ragtag squad. And guess what? No one really has any idea how they'll perform. That's okay.

As always with our (non collegiate) international squads: Go Krauts!
Fan of football, the Murican kind. But soccer is cool too! Just not really my thing. C(:^D/-<

I go by Ran. Unless, of course, you want to type out Ranoria. That's your decision.
