Proposal - Thrudball 2011 Rules Pack

Post  Giraffe on 2011-03-30, 13:21

Had a go at doing the new rules for Thrudball, taking on board all the suggestions we got from last year.

Would appreciate your feedback guys.

THRUDBALL 2011
Welcome to the Sixth annual Thrudball Tournament, Organised by GCN club BRGA. We wish you all a “Thrudderly”good time!! This pack should tell you everything you need to know about the weekend but if you’ve a question just mail me (Frank) at mrfrankhill@yahoo.com or call / email 07896 319683


RULES
The tournament will be played using the BBRC LRB6 rules (i.e the “Competition Rules” and page 5 from LRB5, which defines the range ruler is now measured by squares and not the player's base.
Make sure you print out Page 5 from the LRB 5.0 and add it to the Competition Rules Pack)
Please ensure that you have read and have access to these rules on the day.

TIME LIMIT
Rounds are two hours apiece, so play to four minutes or risk not finishing! You will be given a warning 15 minutes and 5 minutes before the end of the round.

STRUCTURE
We will play 6 games of Blood Bowl over the weekend.

At the end of the Sixth round, the player with the most tournament points will win the Thrudball Trophy. In the event of a tie, we will hold a simple D6 dice-off (down the entire length of the hall) to determine the winner.

At the end of Round 5, the bottom four teams are entered into “DockBowl”, played on Bogg Norr Dock and Seaside!!
The rest will be thruggling for position and improving overall NAF rankings for the weekend.

TEAM SELECTION
Teams should be selected from the Teams section of the Competition Rules or from the three New Experimental Teams – Chaos Pact, Slann or Underworld. . A MAXIMUM of 1,200,000 Gold Coins are available to Field your team.

DEAD AND SERIOUS INJURIES
If a player dies or is seriously injured during the match, To-Me Ku-Pa’s Spell of Weasley Cunning whisks the player away for full healing / reanimation. In other words, players which die are healed to full health for the next match with all skills and fundamentals intact.

WIZARDS
Team wizards CAN be hired, BUT evil necromancer, To-Me Ku-Pa, WILL zap any spellmeister who DARES nick his beach towel!

INDUCEMENTS
ALL Inducements CAN be used at this event this year!

TEAM PROGRESSION
There is NO Team progression at Thrudball, your team does not gain any additional skills during the tournament.

PRIZES
Prizes are sponsor- generosity dependant. I’ll update the website as/if details emerge.


PAINTING
When you register at the event you will be given a result card. On it will be a tear off strip with which to vote for the Best Painted Auction Item (Saturday Lunchtime) and also Best Painted Team(Sunday Lunchtime). The Referees will shortlist 3-7 Auction Items and teams after the first match, for you all to vote on after the first and fourth games.

SCORING
Games will be scored as follows:
WinDrawLoss
Result1050
BonusPer TD*Per CAS*Thrashing**
Points+1(max3)+1(max3)+1


*Fouls & Fan Casualties are NOT included
**if your TD+CAS > opponents TD+CAS+6, you get a bonus point
TD then CAS will determine ranking if tied.

SPORTSMANSHIP
No sportsmanship scores will be added in this event. If you are in breach of sportsmanship you will be yellow carded this deducts 10 points from your score, if you persist in un-sportsman like behaviour a red card will eliminate you from the event. The referees will be looking for examples of great sportsmanship, please tell us if you’re impressed by your opponent’s attitude in this respect.

STAR PLAYERS
Star Players WILL be allowed this year, To-Me Ku-Pa has a mind control spell on Thrud, to protect him from any tough guys kicking sand in his face! The price for Star Players from the list in the Living Rulebook is per the Living Rulebook.

You also have the option this year of creating your own stars for your team. To do this you will need to purchase your players skills.

SKILL COSTS
CostRequired
+20,000"Normal " New Skill
+30,000"Double" Skill (Skills that can only be taken on rolling a double)
+30,000+1 MA or +1 AV
+40,000+1 AG
+50,000+1 ST

STAR PLAYER CREATION RULES:
1) You may not purchase the same combination of skills or stats on more than one player (this includes players with just one skill, so you may not have two players with just Block, but you may have one with just Block, one with Block & Dodge and one with Block & Tackle).

2) You may only create experienced and veteran players (up to two skills per player).

3) Only one of each stat increase is allowed per TEAM, so sorry NO you CANNOT make six +1 Strength halflings / gobbos ...

4) Veteran Created Star Players (I.E. with Two skills), MUST have at least one "Normal" (+20k) New Skill. So you can't create a Star Player with 2 Stat increases, a Stat increase + a Double Skill or 2 "Double" Skills.

5) You cannot give Created Star Players Exceptional Skills (though chainsaw Snotlings would have been fun...)

6) The amount of Created Star Players you can buy depends on the team you are using...

SATURDAY EVENING ENTERTAINMENT

THRUD GURNING
Since the moment we sourced our cheap plastic Thrud Helmet and Latex axe, people have been compelled to put them on and pull silly faces at the camera...so this year we're going to hold a Thrud Gurning competition, may the ugliest face-puller (your own face, not someone elses)win!

THE WIDE ZONE
We will be raffling off tickets for the chance to compete in our Bloodbowl Themed Game Show, "THE WIDE ZONE" which I must continually stress for IP reasons is NOTHING LIKE ITV's "THE CUBE". One lucky competitor will be given the opportunity to attempt a number of simple challenges under the stress and pressure of the Thrudball audience for a chance to win between 1 and AS MANY AS THEY CAN CARRY* FREE Beers!

BUSH TUCKER
We are looking for brave and (fool)hardy souls to perform a sponsored Bush Tucker Trial, eating all manner of disgusting grub(s?) for the entertainment of the crowd. We’re looking for two
“Tuckerettes”, the only criteria we need you to fulfill is a GUARANTEE you will raise over £100 (as the bugs don't come cheap). Have you got the stomache for it? If not please give whoever does all your support, they need it!

THRUDLIKE COMPETITION
Are you an outgoing type, an extrovert? Have you a particularly amusing anecdote you would share with the world? Will you do anything for a laugh, in the quest to be Most Thrudlike? Will you sign the disclaimer, so you cannot sue us in the event of your social death? Then YOU could be Most Thrudlike, see the refs on the Saturday for more details...!

THRENDURANCE
It seems I will do anything to ensure my punters enjoy their Thrudball tournament, and as it seems the majority of these punters are sadists, I will be subjecting myself to all manner of painful but hopefully funny tortures to ensure customer satisfaction! I am really scared of the "ten most painful places to be shot with a paintball gun at point blank range" challenge...wish me luck!

WHO'S LOS IS IT ANYWAY
IF we can recruit four naturally witty and extrovert volunteers willing to attempt live improvised Bloodbowl themed comedy in front of a hopefully forgiving (or at least by then pissed) Thrudball crowd, we will have a shot at this ...but it depends on how much guts you guys have!

WANDERING BEAUTY THERAPIST - WAX CHALLENGES
This year our wandering Beauty Therapist will be performing instantaneous WAX CHALLENGES.
Basically you can call a Wax Challenge during ANY of your rounds of Bloodbowl, throwing down the gauntlet to your opponent. You select an area of the body for the wager, and an amount, which you must either both donate there and then or IOU to the charity (call a Ref who’ll come running with the collection pot to record the wager). Of course, your opponent can back out, but if they do they must wear a Chicken Hat for the rest of the Tourney!!
If you win the match, then as soon as the round ends you get to Wax them, if they win they get to Wax you, and in the event of a draw you simultaneously Wax each other! Let the screaming commence!!

THE N.A.F
The N.A.F is a worldwide independent (GW supported) coach’s society. Its aim is to organise, supervise and run BB tournaments worldwide.
Become a member and you'll get a personalised membership card (with your name and number) and a set of 3 NAF coloured Block dice.
You can then access members only areas of the NAF website, and are part of the world ranking system. Anytime you play another NAF coach, you can enter the result into the database. The more NAF coaches present at an event, the more effect on your ranking.
NAF coaches have separate rankings for each race, so could be riding high in the Orc rankings, while languishing with Wood Elves.
The NAF guys will be at the event in order to sign up new coaches and participate in the mayhem.


BRGA-LICIOUS! NIGHT OUT.
Bognor Town on a Saturday night… a holiday atmosphere in early August… tour the local inns … eat, drink and party! See Mark(The “Animal”) or Althea on Saturday for the best places to eat, drink, relax…or boogie! This year we’ll be at the Waterloo on Saturday evening to play Weed!, Perudo, etc – oh, and to eat worms / be Thrudlike!

WHY BOGNOR REGIS?
Bognor is officially the sunniest sea side town in England, with plenty of pubs , a pier and a Butlins for the kids (if you want to make it a family weekend). Also close by is:

• the Witterings, an great award winning sandy beach ;
• Chichester (better shopping than Bognor maybe, Chi also
• has a Multiplex cinema, a cathedral and a great sports centre with pool);
• The beautiful South Downs (best viewed from Goodwood Hill-or by plane via Tangmere airfield);

Within half an hours drive are Worthing and Portsmouth. Southampton and Brighton are an hour away. All four make great shopping destinations if a “Bloodbowl Widow” is accompanying you.

FINAL NOTE
Please remember that Blood Bowl is a fun game and play within the spirit of the game. If you don’t win who cares but just make the most of playing.
Cheers guys and good luck. See you there…

Re: Proposal - Thrudball 2011 Rules Pack

Careful with WE catchers and Gutter runners that can have Sprint and +1 MA.

I really love the idea of creating Star Players, but ask a few people on TFF for their advice, they know what kind of combination to use.

Maybe only one stat increase per team (or not at all); maybe Stat and Double increase can only have one skill; this is where the most "abuses" will occur.
