Before there was multi-million dollar salaries, there was sport and sportsmanship. Nice story.

Nice story, but there is no hope for us. I have this plan and I will not be stopped. You have been warned. BTW, skijor is going to go first on my list, then Ahsposo. Windchaser is near the very end.

No one is getting killed. Transmogrified maybe, killed, never. Well, maybe a few killings, but not many. But to answer your question, yes. You can start tomorrow.
