World Cup of Hockey 48 [everything]

Postby Quintessence of Dust » Tue May 09, 2023 2:41 pm

This is the OP for the WCoH48, hosted in Quintessence of Dust and Canadian Dominion. OOC comments if you spot a mistake or have a question are welcome, but please direct them to the OOC thread.

The first step to your participation is to post a roster. Even if you do not think you will have time to RP, please consider posting a roster as a basic courtesy to everyone else. The roster should contain at minimum:

  • Your players. An ice hockey team has six players on the ice (one goalkeeper, two defensemen, three forwards – left wing, center, right wing) at any one time, but a squad for a tournament will typically have two or three reserves at each position; a squad size of 18-24 is recommended.

  • A style modifier, from -5 to +5. This dictates how attacking your team is (-5 being most defensive, +5 most attacking). It will influence goals per game but not affect the overall outcome or margin of victory. You may change this modifier once during the group stage, and once again during the playoffs.

  • RP permissions. See the guide to sports roleplaying if you’re new to sports roleplaying. You may customize your permissions as you wish, but a suggested version is included here which you can copy and paste into your roster.

Code: Select all
[b]My opponent, if they RP first, may do the following:[/b]
Choose my Scorers: Yes/No
Choose Scoring Events: Yes/No
Godmod Scoring Events: Yes/No
RP Injuries to my Players: Yes/No
Godmod Injuries to my Players: Yes/No
Assign Penalties to my Players: Yes/No
Eject my Players: Yes/No
Godmod Other Events: Yes/No

[b]Style Modifier:[/b]

Please read and respect other users’ RP permissions, and contact them directly if you are not certain. In addition to individual users’ RP permissions, the following tournament-wide permissions apply to all participants:

  • No pandemic, COVID or otherwise, may be introduced to the host nation or spread to any other teams.
  • No destructive violence towards the host nation's people or infrastructure.

In addition to the above, you may include other relevant information in your roster such as details about your players or coaching staff, uniforms, team history, tactics guide, PIN number and social security details, etc.

Once you have posted your roster, you may begin roleplaying. These roleplays may take any form, such as newspaper articles, narratives, or images. Audio/visual roleplays must provide a transcript. Please keep images to a reasonable size. For RP purposes, it will be assumed all games will be played under WCoHF [OOC: IIHF] rules; a summary of them, and comparison to RL NHL rules, can be found here.

The format of the tournament will involve all teams being drawn into four groups of 13 teams, and playing a single round robin (playing every other team in that group). The top four teams from each group will progress to the Round of 16 playoffs, which will be single elimination. All games will be played to a result, meaning ties will be decided by overtime, and tied overtime games by shootouts. The procedures for overtime and shootout will run according to the rules listed here.

Groups 1 and 4 will take place in Canadian Dominion and be scorinated by Quintessence of Dust.

Groups 2 and 3 will take place in Quintessence of Dust and be scorinated by Canadian Dominion.

Group 1
Canadian Dominion
Eden and Cambersey
The Spartan Dominion

Group 3

Group 4

Except for the final MD, there will be 2 matches scorinated at each cutoff. The team not listed has a bye.

The cutoff for groups 2 & 3 is 04:15 UTC.

The cutoff for groups 1 & 4 is 08:15 UTC.

Note that for those in the Americas, this means the cutoff will be in the evening of the previous day!

Quintessence of Dust (adj.: Quodite or, rarely, Quintessential) is a small (pop.: 5 million) country in the south of Polarverta, Wysteria. 25% of its area is below the Antarctic circle. The majority of its population is of Scandinavian stock, though it has a number of other poorly integrated ethnic groups, most notably its Quintessential-Chinese minority. An unremittingly boring, pointless people, Quodites have mainly achieved fame through sociology, alpine skiing, dreamgaze, fashion design, and anti-slavery advocacy - and are perhaps best known for their rabid secularism and republicanism, and lack of humour.

Quintessence of Dust exists in the mid 22nd century with technology to match including maglevs, advanced nuclear energy, and space travel to the country's extraterrestrial hangouts: a lunar base, a Martian colony, and Deep Space 9 3/4, currently in Triton orbit. Despite their technological advances, however, Quodites remain deeply distrustful of non-human intelligence. Biological sapients, such as ponies and bears, have been grudgingly recognized, but artificial intelligences such as robots, cyborgs, and androids are denied human rights.

Ice hockey is the most popular sport in Quintessence of Dust, especially among Quodites of Fenno-Scandian descent. However, Quodite hockey does have some differences from that played in the rest in the world. First, cross-checking that the referees consider not to be dangerous is legal, unlike in many other foreign leagues (and Quodite players have struggled with being penalised for this when playing abroad). This tournament will be officiated according to international rules, but Quodite officials may be lax in calling this penalty. Second, fighting is totally unknown in Quodite hockey. Of course, foreign teams might still engage in fighting - but home spectators won't respond favourably, and officials are under orders to be strict in breaking up fights. Finally, Quodite sports is well known for its rampant drug problems. Most Quodite hockey players are amped up on amphetamines or on discarded jetpack fuel cells.

You may RP however you like. If you find PMT/FT elements immersion breaking you may ignore them in your roleplaying.

City and stadium details

On each MD, the first two listed games will be played at the first listed stadium, the second two at the second, and the third two at the third.

Group 2


Kynythin Mountain Sports Club (HHL team: Motors) is the second oldest sports club in the country, and has been historically dominant in ice hockey. It has produced the country's two most famous players, Sebestyen Szöllôsi and Mikki Järvinen, and several members of both the men's and women's national squads. Many other athletes from other sports also have their base in Kynythin. It has a very strong rivalry with Greschmeier MSC.

Located in the northwestern state of Ballat, Kynythin is one of the oldest cities in Quintessence of Dust. Its population is overwhelmingly of Finnish ancestry, and double vowels and consonants abound in the many famous names to have hailed from the city. High in the Quintessential Alps, the temperature is above zero at this time of year, but there is still plenty of snow.

People from Kynythin tended to be extremely bitter, because they felt the country's political elite generally sided with the Quintessential-Swedish groups to their east. This changed when Natalia Kivistö, a Quin-Finn, was elected President. Reelected four times, she has led Quintessence of Dust through a golden age of "neoliberalism with Quodite characteristics".

Industry is dominated by forestry. Kynythin is not a highpoint of Quodite culture, and visitors may also get a bit tired of the unswervingly stodgy cuisine: be prepared to be backed up for weeks afterwards. You see, a responsible host even provides information about bowel movements.

Games will be played at Motor Hall, the largest ice hockey arena in the country.

Highmark City

The nation's capital is, to tell the truth, not all that big on ice hockey, as it has a very large Quintessential-Chinese population who disdain the sport for football and rugby. The Romantics are the MN Smith of Quodite hockey: almost always getting relegated, but always managing to stay up, just. Certainly, they've boasted no stars or national team players bar the occasional third line goon in recent years.

Highmark City has a population of a little over a million - puny by international standards, of course, but the major population centre of the nation. The home of most leading industries, the federal government, and the opera, arts and theatre scenes, Highmark City also has a huge Chinatown district boasting unique dishes such as Whale Chow Mein, Whale Chop Suey, Barbecue Whale Ribs, and Kung Po Whale. Dipping in the itty satay sauce dishes can be tricky, though.

Games will be played at the National Stadium of Sports, which only has a medium-sized ice hockey section. Few Highmarkers will attend, but fans from Toonmar and further afield might well make the trip in.

New Cleethorpes

Probably Quintessence of Dust's most famous city, New Cleethorpes is located in West Sponson in the west of the country. It is considerably warmer than any of the other venues at this time of year, and will also be warmer in a different way: much more welcoming of foreign teams and visitors. This is because everyone in New Cleethorpes unreservedly hates everyone else in Quintessence of Dust.

The home of the nation's Liberal community, New Cleethorpes's aversion to taxes and government has led to two civil wars and numerous political tumults, but the city has produced more Presidents than any other. Ice hockey is actually not all that popular - rugby, baseball and football are preferred - but the Quintessential-Icelandic community has its home there, with Sporting Með Blódnasir home to the HHL side Impressionists, as well as producing the country's best women players.

New Cleethorpes is a great place to experience live music and what little nightlife Quintessence of Dust has to offer, and also boasts a more varied cuisine than most other cities: some restaurants even serve vegetables. The people themselves are quite reserved, but positively outspoken compared to most Quodites.

Sporting Með Blódnasir lacks a purpose-built arena, so games will be played in the austere concrete setting of New Cleethorpes Municipal Sporting Ground Rinks #1 and #2.

Group 3


The oldest and most prestigious sports club in Quintessence of Dust, Greschmeier MSC (HHL: Forks) has produced many notable athletes in a variety of sports, including many famous hockey clubs. They once enjoyed a bitterly one sided rivalry with Vanorian club Therathor, who remain popular among local fans - many of whom wear fake "elf ears" to games.

Greschmeier has a majority Quintessential-Swedish populace, and is located in the northern state of Frendry. It is closely affiliated to Klein & Klein, the noted fashion house, who design many of Greschmeier's ultra-svelte outfits. Greschmeier is also among the most progressive in the nation in terms of women players, so will be more open to teams with female squad members.

Greschmeier's cultural high points include the Klein & Klein Museum of Anorexia, The Pool of Nothing (home of Quodite atheism), and sweeping views of the (thankfully nun-free) Quintessential Alps.

Games will be played at the Northern Astrodome, an underground, ultra-modern, environmentally friendly multisport arena.


The prosperous, northern suburb of Highmark City, Toonmar's HHL team (Brackets) are cheered on by a mixed bag of fans, who are ethnically diverse, unusual among the fairly stratified Quodite society.

Toonmar is almost exclusively a commuter belt sprawl, with little to say for itself but safer and cleaner living space than Highmark City. It has also been historically resistant to integration, even after its antiquated laws prohibiting persons of Chinese descent living there were invalidated, but otherwise is much more ethnically amorphous than most other parts of Quintessence of Dust.

The only thing "to do" Toonmar is get yourself onto a high-speed train into Highmark, unless you fancy paying down a mortgage on a clean little two-up/two-down with a Scandinavian who drinks alone at night.

Games will be played at Bracket Park, a very ancient arena where players might be afraid to play too hard for fear of busting through increasingly rickety walls.


Dareb is by far the most remote location to host a group. In the south of the country, it is the home of the main Spaceport that connects Terran Quintessence of Dust with the Moon via the regular "Silver Needle" rocket express, not to mention launching Mars flights and deep space missions.

Tourists are strongly advised not to visit Dareb unless they are Olympic standard cross country skiers, as simply leaving the hotel to get a bottle of milk from the shops can turn into an expedition. And when that happens, Eddie Vedder doensn't play a haunting soundtrack and you don't dream of Kristen Stewart: you just die, alone, in the cold. Idiot.

That said, the teams will find Dareb a welcoming community as the spaceport workers love their hockey, and the locals are real fanatics. Those interested will also find the soundstage used in filming the exciting final of popular reality TV showing Strictly Come Ironing.

Games will be played in the ice hockey arena underneath the Eli F. Baker Memorial Arena: by far the smallest being used, it still might sell out, given the difficulties of getting to the location.

MD1 is Tue 16 May @ 04:15 UTC (Groups 2&3) to 08:15 UTC (Groups 1&4)!

Greeting everyone and welcome to Canada Dominion, which is also commonly known as Goose Island and this Island is located in the north east of Atlantian Oceania! This marks the 48th edition of the World Cup of Hockey and we are here to be your guides throughout the course of this incredible event. Whether you want to explore the beaches (watch out for the Geese), forests or mountain slopes, Goose Island has a lot to offer. You will also get to witness some amazing hockey games along with learning a bit more about Canadian Dominions vibrant culture and customs. So, consider this article as your one-stop-shop guide to exploring all that Goose Island has in store and for your players to know where they will be staying and what rinks they will be playing at!

Alright so Canadian Dominion is a country with a vibrant culture and a long history. It's a popular destination for tourists from all over Asia and Oceania. For centuries, Canadian Dominion has been known for its hospitality, but although geese have been a problem for many travelers, it has always been known to have a warm welcome for travelers from the human side of Canadian Dominion. Visitors are drawn to the country’s several Goose-like landmarks and its wide array of recreational activities, such as ice skating on its famous ice rinks, such as the rinks that host the Canadian Dominion Hockey League’s most prominent teams, such as the Macro Center, which has hosted the Goose-Bay Beavers for three years now. Join us as we explore the culture of Canadian Dominion by learning about its key ice rinks and hotels where players can stay during their visit, and one thing we will say as athletes say in Canadian Dominion is that they watch out for the geese because if you get on the bad side of the geese in Canadian Dominion, there will be a grudge, so this is an important note for all athletes and visitors when they are in Canadian Dominion.

Macro Center - Home of the Goose-Bay Beavers

The Macro Center is an ice hockey arena sponsored by Megabrantid United Financial a sponsor from Squornshelan Remnant States and it's located in the capital city of Goose-Bay, Canadian Dominion that serves as a major sports venue for the city. It is home to the Goose-Bay Beavers of the Canadian Dominion Hockey League (CDHL) and also serves as a host venue for Group One of the World Cup of Hockey Tournament. Boasting a capacity of 10,300 people, Macro Center often has large crowds cheering on their team or favorite players during events like world cup hockey games. The fans are engaged with scoreboards, sound systems that create an entertainment experience like no other. With its state-of-the-art facilities, great sightlines and memorable atmosphere, it’s no wonder the Macro Center is one of the top sports arenas in Canadian Dominion. In the area’s around it is filled with food stands and other tourist attractions for both players and visitors

Blue Goose Arena - Home of the Toribo Geese

The Blue Goose Arena, located in the heart of the Canadian Dominion, will soon make history. As the home rink of the Toribo Geese and also the largest rink in all of the Canadian Dominion, this arena has been chosen as the host venue for the Fourth group in the 48th World Cup of Hockey. Those lucky enough to witness this event will be able to enjoy an unforgettable time filled with excitement and high-stakes hockey action that is sure to keep everyone on the edge of their seats. With its immense size and seating capacity that can hold up to 124 thousand people, Blue Goose Arena is certainly ready for such an immense challenge as hosting the World Cup. This event promises not only amazing hockey but also another great example of why Canadian Dominion sports and hockey should be seen at their highest level possible on a multiversal scale. Vendors and other sorts of activities are close to the arena with tracks being the most common to get to the arena.

Full Name: Principauté de Saint-Jean-Jacques-sur-Mer
Demonym: Jean-Jacquois
Nickname: Tapirs
Team colors: Red & Yellow
Population: 387 639
Land Area: 78 sq. km

Short Nation History:

Saint-Jean-Jacques-sur-Mer is a city state of 78 square kilometers located on Anaia and founded in lhe 18th century by Jean-Jacques Le Boucanier (John James The Buccaneer), a pirate of unknown North or Central Calanian origin who decided to retire from piracy and found his own nation south of his country of origin. Saint-Jean-Jacques-sur-Mer has emerged in the 20th century as a merchant city state which favors capitalism.The current ruler of Saint-Jean-Jacques-sur-Mer is Prince Pierre-Alexandre 1er de Saint-Jean-Jacques-sur-Mer, a direct descendant of Jean-Jacques Le Boucanier. Elections are outlawed in Saint-Jean-Jacques-sur-Mer. The national animal is the tapir, which you can see wandering in our streets. It's also our team nickname.


Île de Richelieu's national team disbanded due to a lack of funds and a lack of registered players from this tiny nation. Some Richelois players moved to Saint-Jean-Jacques-sur-Mer and has been granted citizenship and are now on our national team!

The Polar Powerhouses

Hockey has been a massive sport in United Hawkland since the country was created. Clubs like the Østad IceBears and the Royal Ryan Lions controlled the domestic leagues. Arenas filling up, with 10,000-seat arenas being spread across the country, and almost every town in United Hawkland has a community rink. United Hawkland dominated in hockey while in the Isle of Paterie, but this is Anaia, where things will be much more competitive. Backed by head coach Mark Delania, the United Hawkland national team hopes to make an impact in the Anaian hockey scene. Most of the players come from the Kapuvud area and anything north of this. The city of Njordstad alone makes up the entire 3rd offensive line. However, only two players from the entire team come from the Southern Area of the country. (Grant Mangold, Wolfgang Laurens)

L1: Tuomas Best
L2: Lowell Robertsson
L3: Dyson Olander
L4: Grant Mangold

Backup: Theo Maselnik

Head Coach, Mike Delani, will stand behind the bench. The team will also bring their own boat horn to every game to signal goals.

Vartugia, a nation known for many things, and none of them are good, takes part for the first time in the World Cup of Hockey with what has been described as the team with the lowest odds and with a lot of strange names. When the roster was announced there was confusion and laughter of all the names. All of the name is real and why they are named such is best not asked. One thing is for sure and that Vartugia has no idea on how hockey is played.




1 – Hi Wey (10)
34 – Itsa Jokename (52)
69 – Someones Introuble (yesen’t)
420 – Please Stop (-23)

444 – None Sense (18)
00 – Jokes Dead (??)
6,1 – Number Toohigh (30)
6,2 – Number Toolow (30)



1337 – Will Behated (1000)
123 – Ham Burger (1 month)

You Missed – 53 (52)
11 – Someone Laughted (16)
12 – 2002 Ford Fiesta with 2.0L petrol engine, manual gears, and leather seats (5234 km driven)
Can’t think of a number – A Tin-can? (-1)
1 – Thats horrible (2023)

Elejam men ishoci tim

Nickname: The Ice-a-phants
Style Mod: 0

Ice hockey is the most popular sport in Elejamie, followed by football/soccer (both are acceptable in Elejamie) and rugby [union], In fact, the men's national team - nicknamed the Ice-a-phants as of 2021 - are one of the best teams in the multiverse, winning four times (29th, 31st, 35th and 43rd), being runners-up in the finals three times (30th, 32nd and 44th) and getting three bronze medal games (28th, 37th and 46th); although the B-team won a gold medal in the men's ice hockey at the 12th Winter Olympics, they're considered a different team and as a result their achievement is not counted alongside the four WCoH wins. They're still on the hunt for a full-time coach, with the revered Michael Madgwick leading them to a bronze medal at the 46th edition and Alex Sorenson's brief return for number 47 ending in a humiliating fashion, but they're hoping this next guy will be the one to retain the reins.

(N.B. I'm fully aware that I'm not hosting anything, just consider this extra information)

Declan Madgwick Memorial Stadium, Davenport, WYKN
Horn: Generic ship horn
Goal song: Dropkick Murphys - I'm Shipping Up To Boston
Penalty song: Irish Rovers - Drunken Sailor
Win song: Queens of the Stone Age - Smooth Sailing

Home to the Davenport Dockers - the most successful team in the ENIHL (Elejamian National Ice Hockey League) - and the national team. Built in 1992 to replace Dockside Stadium, which was eventually demolished in 1995, Davenport Stadium is the largest ice hockey arena in Elejamie, with a capacity of 18,500. The stadium was originally known as the Davenport Stadium but it also spent a brief spell in the early 2000s as the Rapid Beer Co. Stadium. Eventually, it was renamed the Declan Madgwick Memorial Stadium just in time for the start of the 2015/16 season, in honour of famed politician and diplomat Declan Madgwick (1927-2015).

For the record: In the northwest of Elejamie, the term "stadium" is used for any building which hosts a professional sports team even if they don't play on a pitch.

HomeFiller Arena, Coventry, AVEN
Horn: Coventry Blaze 2021/22 horn
Goal song: System F - Out Of The Blue
Penalty song: Justice - Stress
Win song: Tiesto - Ten Seconds Before Sunrise

Built in 1989, the HomeFiller Arena is also known as the Coventry Arena, especially in situations where HomeFiller isn't sponsoring the event in question. With a total capacity of 17,000, it is also home to the Coventry Puffins; the backup stadium for the national ice hockey and basketball teams; home to the junior and U-18 ice hockey teams; and home to the Coventry Nets basketball team. It entered a sponsorship deal with furniture store HomeFiller in 2013, which is due to expire at the end of the season and isn't expected to be renewed.

My opponent, if they RP first, may do the following:
Choose my Scorers: Yes
Choose Scoring Events: Yes
Godmod Scoring Events: Yes
RP Injuries to my Players: Yes (but nothing too serious; one person at a time and they can't be out for anything longer than two games. Killing is definitely out)
Godmod Injuries to my Players: Yes (see above)
Assign Penalties to my Players: Yes (but try not to make my players seem dirty, especially since Cerin Meloten and Harrison Blackburn are two of the nicest players on and off the ice and Stacy Saunders is more interested in getting points rather than getting himself into trouble)
Eject my Players: Yes (one ejection per match with a one game suspension and they have to serve their suspension before another player can be ejected)
Godmod Other Events: Depends on what it is (fighting I'm OK with and gave a list of people likely to fight in the "Everything Else" spoiler) but I'd recommend TGing me if you've got any other ideas

  • "Keh-reen Mah-loh-tahn"; "Ah-lah-YEHM Mahn ees-hoh-kee teem".
  • Stacy Saunders is still a guy, if anyone's wondering. So, if you do mention him in your RP, make sure you say "he", "him" and "his" instead of "she" and "her".
  • In the event that any of my players interest you and you want to sign them, please tell me which one you want, which club wants them and all the details.
  • Please get back to me with RP info by 8pm BST. Otherwise, I'll go ahead and put my own stuff in.
  • My main enforcers are Lupe, Carlos Sierra, Ethan Swinburne, Mike Keller and Bill Judge (who was Elejamie's main enforcer during WJHC8). The only players that don't fight are Stacy Saunders, Cerin Meloten and Harrison Blackburn. Everyone else can fight, just not as often as those first guys I've mentioned.
  • Elejamie will wear their alt kit on MD1 and either the quarter-final or the semi-final if they're not the home side for the QF.
  • Although "Carpio" appears on his jersey, Kiko Carpio is usually on a full name basis when he's being commentated on. I won't complain if you just call him "Carpio", though.
  • Danilo and Felipe Barajas are twin brothers, with Danilo being the oldest by about five minutes.
  • OOC rant but please can we use the discussion threads whenever there's a new edition of something being announced? Not everyone has access to the NS Sports server, not everyone has or wants to get Discord and not everyone's checking the NS Sports subforum every 0.4 femtoseconds just to see if sign-ups are open. I'm just glad I caught this in time and not missed it like I did the last RWC.

The team's special teams tend to struggle, as they are more likely to score goals when it's 5 v 5.

As Banija is a country that lacks winter, the sport's popularity struggles inside the country itself. However, Banijans rank as some of the largest migratory people in the multiverse, as there are multitudes of Banijan migrant communities across Atlantian Oceania and far beyond. Therefore, the vast majority of places come from those Banijan migrant communities, in countries that actually have winter. Ice hockey has, quite famously, become a sport that migrant Banijan communities rally around, as thanks to the GBHL, it has become a way to connect both to other Banijan migrant communities, as well as the homeland.

At WCoH 46, Banija made the knockout stages at a World Cup of Hockey for the first time since WCoH 40 in Taeshan. After getting a rather encouraging run to the quarterfinals(where they were felled by tournament hosts, Mercedini), they built on that at WCoH 47. They stunned the entire multiverse by winning four consecutive KO stage games, to blow everybody away and reach their first ever Final, where they fell to Trolleborg, 2-0.

While almost everybody equally regards this as an 'insane lucky' run, the Banijan team is out here to prove that their stunning run to the Final wasn't just a Cinderella story- but the start of a statement of intent, where the Banijans are transformed from a 'potential top 10 but not top 5' ceiling to 'legitimate championship contender' status.

Godmode other events: If you mean someone got sick, there was a power outage at the rink, there was a disagreement between players, I'll run with it. Anything else is a no-go.

* Stuff like deciding how the goal's scored as long as it's within the realm of realism is fine. Magic shit is not.
Home Rink: Bank of Sarzonia Arena, Nicksia, Benatar, Sarzonia (18,090 capacity)
Home kits: Navy blue with silver trim
Away kits: White with navy blue trim
Alternate kits: Silver with navy trim

Coach: Brett Tanguay, Sr., 42
Assistant Coach: Joe Crosson, 59
Goalie Coach: Pete Peeters, 58

GOALTENDERS (starter in bold)
32 Jacob Parsons, 26, 5-foot-10, 175 pounds
Uses a butterfly style and quick reflexes to make up for inexperience with positioning. Suspect puck handling.
39 Yuri Evgenikov, 32, 6-foot-3, 230 pounds
Provides veteran depth in the event of any calamities and uses a stand-up style in contrast to Parsons.
43 Owen Franks, 21, 6-foot-1, 195 pounds
Franks is a stand up goalie who plays the puck well and can be a weapon when the Stars are shorthanded. He scored a goal into an empty net during a college game last season.

First pair
14 Chris Walton, 27, 6-foot-3, 195 pounds. Alternate captain.
Can sometimes play on the fourth line or a penalty killing forward if needed, but he's also an at-home defenceman.
5 Jill Sanders, 25, 5-foot-7, 150 pounds
Certainly not the first woman to play for the Stars, but she's certainly the scrappiest. She willingly goes into the corner to scrum to win pucks.

Second pair
6 Mia Chretién, 34, 5-foot-8, 145 pounds.
Can move the puck in and out of the zone well. Sometimes used on the front line during penalty kills.
7 Erik Weingart, 30, 5-foot-11, 200 pounds. Second alternate captain.
He's there for both hitting and leadership on the ice.

Third pair
19 Gil Sondberg, 24, 6-foot, 185 pounds
Has surprising physicality compared to his size. He's a big hitter and he's a force in the weight room.
52 Kirk Stephens, 25, 6-foot-1, 190 pounds.
Stephens is the offensive defenceman on the Stars, and often lines up as a right wing on the penalty kill. He's a threat to score a shorthanded goal.

Seventh defenseman
55 Milt Radner, 22, 6-foot-4, 210 pounds
Has youthful energy but lacks the polish needed for a spot on a main pairing.

First Line
LW 19 Matt Davies, 25, 6-foot-2, 190 pounds
Lanky and fast, also with good puck movement skills, but can be relatively easy to get physical with.
C 38 Nate Barnes, 27, 5-foot-11, 189 pounds. Captain.
Best faceoff guy on the Stars, winning them at a 62 percent clip last season. Second in the league with 78 assists in 72 games.
7 RW Brett Tanguay, Jr., 20, 6-foot-1, 215 pounds
He has skill and power, and fires a blistering shot from the point. The son of the defence-minded assistant coach is as offence-minded as it gets.

Second Line
LW: 22 Dylan Bannister, 29, 6-foot, 210 pounds
Bannister replaces the now-retired Cameron Granato as the second line left wing. He has acknowledge he has big skates to fill, though perhaps not as big as also retired left wing Sylvan Turcotte's.
C: Alyssa Hannigan, 25, 5-foot-7, 149 pounds.
A great puck distributor, she often features as the first or second line centre on the power play.
RW: Calan Leftwich, 26, 5-foot-10, 180 pounds.
Plays well enough on defence to be on the checking line, but his offence keeps him on the ice in offensive situations. Could double-shift to the fourth line in case of injury.

Third Line
LW: 15 Jeff Tucker, 31, 5-foot-11, 179 pounds.
Has the versatility to play any of the three forward positions offensively, but his defence is suspect.
C: 16 Colin Yarmouth, 23, 5-foot-8, 175 pounds.
Plays a sparkplug style, but is still working on the conditioning and stamina needed to play on the first two lines. May not be able to play long minutes in extended knockout round overtime sessions.
RW:24 Ray Olendorff, 33, 6-foot-1, 190 pounds.
Plays harder than most. Is now much improved in conditioning, but meshes so well with the third line that he only plays on the other lines in knockout stage matches.

Fourth Line
LW: 37 Brock Willingham, 24, 6-foot-3, 215 pounds
Takes over the enforcer role from Alan Donald, though he has more skill and a little bit less pure braun. Don't sleep on him in a fight, though.
C: 26 Cliff Sauerchuck, 30, 6-foot-4, 230 pounds
His checking and physical play are what have him playing fourth line centre, but his ability to win faceoffs and distribute the puck are why he plays centre.
RW: 44 Terré Sombulier, 24, 5-foot-10, 170 pounds
They check well, and cleanly. That's why they're fourth line.

Ko-oren - WCOH 48

Team Colours: Green, blue, yellow
Demonym: Ko-orenite
Nickname: Dragonflies, Green-and-blue
Head Coach: Deniigi Kuang (GKI)
Assistant coaches:
Stats: Here

G Bertus Bitterboom (20) - ImageLamau-Dartha Hunters
G Per Janszoon (27) - ImageLaunott Polar Bears
G Alca Aegumelin (21) - ImageSerevne Northerners
G Wugeld Zudalu (25) - ImageWest Coast Blizzards

Bitterboom is the real deal. The golden boy. The prodigy. Janszoon might have definitely lost his starting spot to the Hunters' number one. Zudalu need not apply - after storming onto the scene, his time with the Blizzards has shown that he's good, but not per se great. Janszoon remains the most important commodity with his experience, but Bitterboom is the one starting from here on out. Finally, stability?

Line 1
LD Aedeti Aenec (26) - ImageNoordrug Bi-state
RD Aennirin Ehoni (30) - ImageSouth Aevanna Storm

Line 2
LD Vilokatsu Akinaga (24) - ImageArboren Vortex

Line 3
LD Aebubu Aol (22) - ImageAevanna Explorers-Mariners

RD Gerhild (f) Casselaer (22) - ImageStraudum Ice
RD Arisife Alinise (25) - ImageAevanna Plains Wanderers
LD Aenoi Alrella (23) - ImageSerevne Northerners
LD Petrus Roodplataan (21) - ImageStraudum Ice

Aenec and Ehoni are the best two players in a big field of players that aren't all that different from each other. Akinaga and Winterhaag are not much worse than the starting duo, and Aol/Aiaros aren't far behind that, and that continues into the substitutes. Aenec was the only defender in the top 10 players of last season, which otherwise featured two goalies and seven forwards, what with the insane offensive explosion taking place. Winterhaag represents the champions and will play next to Akinaga, who bounced around the league and has found a stable income in Arboren who are rebuilding with a young and exciting roster. Aol is Ex-Ma's only big name at the moment, while Aiaros comes from a star-studded Hunters roster. Aol will like to play with this roster of all-pros, and hopefully it releases a new version of him. There's a Straudum duo on the bench, with Casselaer and Roodplataan - keep your eyes on them: if any duo falters, due to their club chemistry they're an easy hot swappable pair.

Line 1 (Scoring line)
LW Moen de Zwaluw (23) - ImageLaunott Polar Bears
C Mathias Loenaren (25) - ImageLamau-Dartha Hunters
RW Aerine Aorifi (33) - ImageSouth Aevanna Storm

Line 2 (Balanced line)
LW Kjell IJsberg (33) - ImageNoordrug Bi-state
C Birtle Montrose (21) - ImageAevanna Scouts
RW Woutre Heerekornuit (27) - ImageStraudum Ice

Line 3 (Checking line)
LW Aone Aenec (28) - ImageAevanna Plains Wanderers
C Tiele van April (20) - ImageStraudum Ice
RW Aenime Aivobelin (21) - ImageAevanna Plains Wanderers

Line 4 (Defensive line)
LW Jacob IJzerkroon (23) - ImageLamau-Dartha Hunters
C Aelocu Aurtinia (27) - ImageSerevne Northerners
RW Arinia Aolopei (27) - ImageSerevne Northerners

C Aoere Aegomenna (19) - ImageArboren Vortex
RW Detger Veldappel (19) - ImageLamau-Dartha Hunters
RW Tiele Loenaren (23) - ImageNoordrug Bi-state
LW Robert Dartett (23) - ImageStraudum Ice
RW Aenva Avdu (25) - ImageAevanna Scouts
LW Enoni (f) Aolubi (28) - ImageEgevea Islanders

It's been said: there's an explosion of offensive talent and they're all hitting their early 20s now. While line one has some established guys (whoa, Loenaren is 25 already? Where has the time gone), it gets younger and younger the further down you scroll. On line 1, De Zwaluw won the league with the Polar Bears and made the Team of the Year, while Loenaren suffered a down year, at least, for his standards. Aorifi chipped in with a decent number of assists and goals for 7th placed Storm - while only the top six go to the postseason. Line 2 has IJsberg, a household name and one of the first big names to be known nationally, with Heerekornuit (TOTY) and Montrose (#1 in goals). The Scouts' target man is a mean screen-setter and tip-in specialist, and his support will be far better than what he's used to in Aevanna. Line 3 features a winger duo from the Wanderers (5th, first round exit in playoffs) and Aenec (yes, related to defenceman Aenec) is the aggressive captain of the group. Aivobelin is an enforcer, and Van April (#2 in points, #3 in goals, #3 in U21 players) might have liked to team up with Heerekornuit but his style might fit this pair of checkers more. Lucky he's good at the penalty kill. Line 4 is 66.6 per cent recurring Northerners (9th), which comes across as a weird choice but if there's anything that stopped Serevne from dropping to 12th, it was them. Serevne didn't really have any problems creating chances but were wasteful - and they still ended up in 8th in goals scored. On the bench there's Aegomenna (#2 U21, #2 in goals), Tiele Loenaren (little brother of Mathias), Avdu (#3 in points), and a few complementary pieces.

Akinaga-Aiaros-Heerekornuit-Van April

The Ko-orenite league cracked down on fighting to speed games up. Don't be surprised if the Dragonflies don't respond to a call to arms. Ice hockey is a regional (but not necessarily small) sport in Ko-oren, limited to frigid Aerellen, the temperate (but cold) northeast, and parts of the unwelcoming west coast. Venues are limited, and Aerellen's largest venue hosts multiple games per day while the season is on, so speeding up games and keeping them plannable is key. Languages used by the team are Dutch and Aerellen (Ko-orenite). Aerellen names are easily recognisable, they start with vowels, featuring many Au, Ao, Ai, Ae combinations at the start of each word. Tarrashall is also a culture that you'll run into, famous players from there include Hallady Buck and Yaller Nyan, and they often play for the ImageWest Coast Blizzards.

The league has made the move from amateurism/semi-professionalism to fully professional over the last year. To get there, some teams were moved, some merged, others folded while new teams (in different locations) sprang up to fill the void. This has left part of the fanbase bitter and resentful: their team might have moved, a 80+ year old rivalry might have disappeared, etc. The rest of the fanbase has been very welcoming: more of Ko-oren can enjoy the fastest team sport in the multiverse. Still, the league didn't exactly expand beyond its usual borders (Aerellen, the northeast, and the north coast). There's also the matter of Banija's team in Schemerdrecht: while opening up the city to ice hockey, it has taken away expansion opportunities.

Being born in the Fire Nation doesn’t exactly exude a future storied career in a sport played on ice. Yet in the small village of Kajinazumi, a household name would be born in the Kuang family; in their middle child Deniigi. Playing youth hockey all the way through the system before getting a full-ride scholarship to Republic City State University, where under one of the best hockey programs in the Republics Kuang would find himself making the Reserve Roster for the Gyatso-kai National Ice Hockey team at the age of 19 for the Seventeenth Edition of the World Cup of Hockey. He would make nine appearances on the reserves, often times subbing in for an aging Ito Pakku. His transition to starter after the retirement of Ito, as well as his continued development, led to an integral part in the first World Cup of Hockey victory for the Ice Bisons.

Following his retirement, Kuang has accepted a position at his alma mater, as an assistant coach for the RCSU men’s team. He has been entertaining coaching positions for a few AHL and RHL teams, and even an Arendallic team. His defensive style of coaching, though, might be just the perfect fit for the Dragonflies of Ko-oren, who have always been a far more defensively minded team than most others on the multi-verse stage.

It's election season- here are your FAQs!

BUSUKUMA, NATIONAL CAPITOL REGION- We've gone the full-length of the Lukiiko- it's election season in Banija once again! The left-wing coalition government is officially over(for now), as the Katikkiro, Xolile Lubabalo, officially submitted the end of her writ of mandate from the Lukiiko to the Kabaka, and the Lukiiko was officially dissolved. There will be big-time changes coming, as Lubabalo strives for a second term, while Banija's right wingers try to force her out of power.

After Banija's last census results, it was determined that Banija's Lukiiko would expand by 100 seats- from 500 to 600, and that the size would stay at 600 for the long-term future(if Banija ever hits a population of 200 million, it'll expand again from 600 to 750). Of course, this sudden expansion by such a large number, adding 50 constituency seats and 50 more at-large seats, has created a scramble- many people see this election, specifically, as a unique way to enter the Lukiiko without having to challenge an incumbent.

And many people are taking advantage of it. Ambassador Toyuwa Okafor, from Banija to Cardenao, has resigned his Commission has an Ambassador to run for a seat in the Lukiiko, as a member of the Collective Resistance Union. All sorts of small-town mayors, and city council members, even regional legislators are trying to take advantage of this fact to get themselves an upgrade in their own political career, and reach the Lukiiko.

This will also mean a much more diverse Lukiiko. The Apportionment Commission drew a record amount of majority-minority seats within the country, which was 5. There was a second majority-Farf seat drawn in Busukuma, and another majority-Farf seat drawn in nearby Busembe. On the outskirts of Aissa, in a seat that covers both urban and suburban portions of greater Aissa, there was a majority-Yue seat drawn, as the strong Yue migrant community will likely elect their first ever member to the Lukiiko. And lastly, although there was no majority-Farf seat drawn, an ethnically Græntfjaller local politician was nominated for a seat with the PPM, and is a big favorite to become that community's first ever elected Mkiiko.

And beyond that, while a few Busogans will certainly be elected, many expect an ethnic Quebecois politician in South Moravica to become the first Quebecois-born elected member of the Lukiiko in nearly 30 years. So as much diversity as we've ever seen in the city of the 7 Hills.

#2 The potential royal Regency- not hanging over this election

In what is becoming increasingly rare as the world becomes more polarized, the four parties have largely agreed on one thing- that the Kabaka, who is 92 years old, should be given space to make his choice for a Regency for his great-grandson, Sekakama, who is one year old- but that they will all be prepared to take over the process if the Kabaka passes before he appoints a Regent. Perhaps the Katikkiro said it best. "The Constitution allows for the Kabaka to appoint future Regents, subject to the law, from members of his own family. I trust that the Kabaka will do so in due course. But rest assured- there will be no constitutional crisis if he dies before appointing a Regent- a CRU-led government will stand ready to swiftly appoint a regent."

Even the Kiongozi said something similar, saying that "Banija will not be in doubt about who will take the throne. Isebantu Sekakama, although young, is the heir, and if the Kabaka cannot appoint, we will." The Kabaka is said to be 'appreciative' of the space being given to him by the Banijan political class, although he is well aware that kind of space will not last forever- he says a Regent for the child will be appointed 'in due course'.

#3 The Banijan Esportivan Territories will not be a factor- directly, anyways

Of course, everybody knows about the newly established Banijan Esportivan Territories of Njaza. We saw videos of the crazy World Cup watch parties that they threw, as their first World Cup as part of this country saw their new nation, Banija, win the whole damn thing right across the way, in Tumbra. But Njaza are a collection of overseas territories- they are not integral parts of Banija. Therefore, they do not have seats in the Lukiiko. 600 seats- and all are with mainland Banija.

Of course, in practice, they will have non-voting representation. What does that mean? Each of the four major political parties is having what is called a 'closed primary' in the Territories. Meaning what, exactly? Basically, members of each party can run on an open ballot, and party members in the Territories can vote for an elected official to represent them with their party back in Busukuma. Non-voting partisan members can help advise the major parties on how their constituents feel about certain issues when the Lukiiko legislates regarding Njaza.

Of course, that is not expected to last for long- each party has a different proposal on how Njaza should be represented in the Lukiiko by fully elected members, although we'll cover that in the next edition of this newspaper.
Former champion of quite a few things. Former President of even more things.

The Irritating Stick national ice hockey team, which is run by the Ice Hockey Federation of Irritating Stick (IHFIS), represents the country of Irritating Stick in ice hockey competitions. The IHFIS also oversees all aspects of domestic hockey within Irritating Stick, which has its own unique set of rules compared to the rest of the international ice hockey community, which includes gray pucks and 20 second "shot clocks" to enforce a blistering style of play. In order to please the World Cup of Hockey Federation, however, the players on the national team will confine to its ruleset.

Team Nickname: The Irritants
Primary Colors: Purple and Yellow
Alternative Colors: White and Red
Style: +5
The national team employs many of the techniques found throughout the ISHL, including offensive blitzes and considerable uses of checks. They are a pretty aggressive looking bunch, and as a result a player on the Irritating Stick national team is more likely to end up in the penalty box than most.


Offensive First Line
Center: Bradley Weston
Leftwing: Amadis Spannagel
Rightwing: Sune Lowell

Offensive Second Line
Center: Volkmar Achterberg
Leftwing: Rostislav Holland
Rightwing: Barrett Millhouse

Offensive Third Line
Center: Einar Traves
Leftwing: Avery Trent
Rightwing: Anders Herberts

Offensive Fourth Line
Center: Randall Wilkins
Leftwing: Gry Daniel (F)
Rightwing: Kōta Steuben

Offensive Fifth Line
Center: Keith Atkinson
Leftwing: David Richardson
Rightwing: Lee Walker (F)

Offensive Sixth Line
Center: Patrick Preston
Leftwing: Clem Ashton
Rightwing: Kristen Cole

Defensive First Line
Left: Heinrich Feigenbaum
Right: Prue Ashley (F)

Defensive Second Line
Left: Davie Towner
Right: Bárðr Donaldson

Defensive Third Line
Left: Tiara Jacobs (F)
Right: Milton Mathewson

Defensive Fourth Line
Left: Brady Steele
Right: Jerry Simen

Primary: Roy Mizuno
Secondary: Elena Glöckner (F)
Emergency: Orville Atwood

(F) designates a female member of the national team. Each team in the ISHL is required to have at least 3 females on their roster, and this extends to the national team.
Whilst no ages are given, all members of the national team are aged somewhere between 18-35, with the top lines being reserved for the older players and the bottom lines being reserved for the younger players.
