    So sticking with the "City + alliterative DnD monster" naming scheme, what's your favourite team?

    High fantasy sports isn't exactly treading a new ground - e.g. Blood Bowl; It's not "esports popular" granted, but it can still be pretty entertaining to watch if just for the instances of soul-crushingly bad RNG that can happen to people that are not-me.

    Ft Lauderdale Flumphs!

    Also, as someone who has not even a passing interest in esport, I could totally get behind a competitive dnd sporting competition.

    As long as they use 5e and not 3.5e, else the entire league will be nothing but ridiculously munchkined kobolds.

    Washington Wizards. Since Ted Leonsis wants to revert the basketball team's name back to the Bullets, I'm sure the DC of the persuasion roll is reasonable perhaps even with advantage.

    Signed up just to comment on this,

    Can we have this please? Anyone? It very much appeals to me, right now my mind is going wild trying to figure out how you could organize and arrange it and how it would actually work.

    I've always had a soft spot for the Baltimore Balors. I always found it a shame that they had to change the name.

    Baltimore Blink dogs is a perfectly acceptable replacement name, At least its better name than the Baton Rogue Bullywugs.

    Nice color scheme, although Comcast (most likely teamowner) would probably want black and orange like the Flyers (NHL) and Fusion (OWL).

    Unfortunately, I think people missed the joke about the original name for the Balors.

    If I could buy Orlando Owlbears merch I'd be a happy, happy boy, seeing as I'm both an Orlando resident, and a fan of Owlbears in general. :)

    On the one hand, I wish I could have made a Bullywug reference.

    On the other hand, this means I'm not alone in loving those froggy bastards
