The Carstein Cup - Register your team!

Postby Morph » Wednesday 5th June, 2013 5:26 pm

In ages past there was the Albion Blood Bowl League which sadly collapsed amid frustration and a scandalously unfinished semi-final. The old league commissioner is said to have withered away due to (according to apothecaries) "a chronic lack of stats."

But now, mysterious eastern-Empire oligarch Roman von Carstein has sunk his considerable fortune into building new Blood Bowl stadiums all over his homeland of Sylvania and is inviting teams from around the Old World to come and compete for the honour of lifting the Carstein Cup.


So it looks like we have at least 8 players, let's get this league rolling!

First up - make your team using the standard league rules. Make sure you've got the latest ones from here...

Then on this thread post your team name and race.

The season will start with the play-offs in the next week or so and last until the end of the summer hols. When that happens the top 4 teams (I'll reveal how this is worked out in a later post) will be drawn into two semi-finals and then the winner of those will go into the final to play for the cup.

During the play-offs player can arrange whatever games they want with the exception that you can't play against the same team more than twice during the summer (this may change if we end up with some sort of frenzy of playing).

Games will not use any of the optional league rules such as special play cards and as we have new players/ we haven't played for a while/ playing the computer game has dulled our abilities we will ignore the Illegal Procedure rule (for the play-offs anyway).

So with that in mind, let me have your teams...

Teams so far...

Laurelorn Leapers - Wood Elves - Ian
Flydende Blade - Chaos Warriors - Tim
Phantoms - High Elves - Duncan
Strigoinometry - Undead - Scrowe
The Surrealists - Dark Elves - Scanham
Wandering Warriors - Humans - Chris

The Squig Lickaz - Orcs - Tom R
The Warpstone Stealers- Skaven - Victoria

What can you do against the lunatic who is more intelligent than yourself, who gives your arguments a fair hearing and then simply persists in his lunacy?

The wandering warriors. Humans.
