Boomer Eziasson

To use a black powder filled bomb in a blood bowl match has a long and meaningful tradition. So it is no wonder that the dwarfs, as masters of the art of explosives, used these not so secret weapons since the first days. Nowadays even goblins and other teams use the service of this quick fireball of doom, but some of these little helpers are prone to injure as often the thrower as the victim.

In 2477 this was about to change when Boomer Eziasson put on his gauntlets of doom. He is the second son of Ezias Eadsson, heir of the legendary cannon caster and main arms supplier of Karaz-a-Karak. Backed by the expertise of his family in the production of security products, Boomer started to develop and use new helpful devices on the second best environment compared to a real battlefield, a blood bowl pitch.

At his first assignment for the Dwarf Warhammers, back then he used still the good old standard bomb with a fuse, he managed to wipe out most of the opposing teams fan block as well as the north-east tribune of the lowdown rats stadium. After this initial success he was a familiar sight among the other secret weapons the Warhammers are known for. In 2484 however he took his leave of this team after the blackpowder-Saturday incident. One of Boomers new invention malfunctioned in a not very pleased way. The device was the so named “combustion-auto-kicker”, designed to kick the ball downfield while the rest of the team gains a head start on the opposing team. Somehow the device took fire and kicked the burning ball not into the opponents half, but into the Warhammerers dugout and their reserve supply of leftover ammunition. Boomer blamed for the following explosion and vaporizing most of the training staff, took his helmet and turned freebooter. In the following years he played for any dwarven team which could afford his payment and flexibility for the testing of new improved game helping devices. In the late years he was seen playing for several Norse teams, as he found it harder to play again for some dwarven teams he has “helped” in the past. His last successful appearance at the majors was in the 2507 Dungeonbowl. Hired by the Karak Zorn Crushers, his first thrown bomb injured not only the Crushers top blitzer, but also paved the way for the win of the “Most Casualty Award” of that tournament. His liaison with that team was rather short-lived, and so he is again up for some hire and fire action.

Boomer Eziasson:

Games played: 199

Awards: Spike! Magazine “Most dangerous player for his own team” 2484.

Most CAS caused with a single Bomb: 12 (8 from the opposing team)

I know, as I'm not a natural english speaker, some sentences might be a little "german" in their structure. So this is my first draft, and absolutely open to be changed or updated by the right persons (stormgiant).

Any veteran player learns to read the signs very quickly: a Dwarf with the smell of sulphur about him, black stains in his beard, from which small columns of smoke are rising, and a mad grin on his face, means trouble. With Boomer Eziasson the signs are not even that subtle.
Boomer is known for his moods of mad cackle that are frequently interrupted by the shout “BOOOM!”, followed by even more mad cackling and another hole in the building. Boomer’s idea of a perfect game comes down to a big crater and a gigantic column of black smoke rising from it. That’s what he calls a job well done! In no less than 35 cities of the old world Boomer Eziasson is branded as a menace to society and not allowed to stay within striking distance of the city until match day (it used to be 41, but for six of them the call came too late). You know the list: storms, floods, earthquakes, fast food and Boomer - five things that bring our civilisation to its knees. Boomer entering the pitch means that the ball is not the only thing flying around anymore, and ball-shyness, to dodge a ball instead of catching it, became rather common among the more nervous players. Especially after Boomer came up with the ball-shaped hand grenade to fool even more players into catching them. It worked surprisingly well, and a lot of touchdown-dances added a rather explosive element to their choreography. When the hand grenade-ball was finally banned, after a nasty merchandise mix-up, Boomer responded rather considerately and blew up only one RARG building. One last thing one should know about Eziasson is that after years of living at the centre of explosions he’s almost deaf, and unless your voice has the volume of an explosion, you won’t get through to him. Communicating with Boomer is therefore reduced to hand signs and a lot of misunderstandings. It’s also not recommended to wave your hands vigorously in any way when Boomer is around, just in case he gets the idea you’re talking to him. Seriously! It’s very hard to convince him otherwise, once he picked up on it.
