First, here are the different areas you can access for Ordo Bowl II: Southstorm Slaughter information:

Second, you want rules! In addition to being posted at https://southstormslaughter.splashthat.com/, they can be found here:

Ordo Bowl II: Southstorm Slaughter is a two-day, resurrection style Blood Bowl tournament, swiss style. First games will be determined randomly, with the remaining games determined based on tournament points. For the first round only, we will do our best to pair players off against members that are outside of their home club. The tournament will run six total matches, with four games on Saturday, and two on Sunday.

What to bring:

Painted and based team with suitable models; a fully painted and based team is mandatory. Bringing an incomplete team will disqualify you from any and all awards, including the Ordo Bowl II championship. It's easy; bring a painted team! You are not required to paint your own team, just bring a painted and based team to play with.

Skill rings or another appropriate way to identify skills/positions (mandatory)

Stunty teams will play for their own cup while still participating in the main tournament
Stunty teams include Goblins, Halflings, Lizardman (only when team build is all Skinks or plus a Kroxigor), Ogres and Underworld teams (without Skaven players).
Star players can be added to a stunty team without disqualifying them from the Stunty Cup.

⭐⭐⭐Did you know...?
...that the Southstorm Squids’ star player Sara Von Squid began her Blood Bowl career as a Cabal Vision camera operator? In the Squids’ first game with human players, a Southstorm player blocked an Oldheim Ogre player into the crowd, destroying Sara’s camera! The resulting brutality unleashed by the young woman gained the attention of Squids’ owner Brixton Murmader. Von Squid’s ferociousness took over, and she was soon wearing that Ogre’s smile as a necklace! Murmader signed her to her first NAF contract on the spot. Just a few years later, Sara is the Squids’ best player, leading casualty inflictor, and spirit squad coordinator.

Did you know...?
...that when the Southstorm Squids fans want to change the run of play, they perform ‘the wave’? Not the same synchronized wave made famous by Lustrian fans at the Würld Cup 2486, the Squids wave actually affects the pitch! That’s right, as the thousands of fans hop and jump in unison, the Southstorm Schooner Stadium starts to rock, giving the Squids an unusual advantage. In the 2508 playoff semifinal versus the World’s Edge Wanderers, the combined force of the wave caused the Southstorm harbor to flood the Schooner’s deck with two meters of water! The result was terror for the Dwarfs, as their many secret weapons were ruined by the saltwater attack, and several of their players were washed into the sea.

Did you know...?
...that the Squids were fined by the NAF 10,000 gold pieces and had to forfeit a game versus the Orcland Raiders for an illegal play? Back when the Southstorm pitch was submerged, the Squids were struggling to find league success. Prior to the game versus Orcland, the Squids' coach Jun Grouperden devised a play so sneaky, even a Goblin team would be impressed. Down by one with little time remaining, Squids' linefish Gil Barnacleface placed the ball in a spiky blowfish, who then began swimming to the end zone. As Raiders' players approached, the blowfish would expand, impaling Orc after Orc before finally crossing the line for a touchdown. However, the NAF quickly punished the Squids...why? Twelfth player? Secret weapon(s)? Nope, the NAF and Orcland took exception to the blowfish's age! NAF rules at the time stated a minimum player age of five years old, and the blowfish was only spawned weeks earlier. Nevertheless, the Squids' infamous Blow Bowl play has gone down in history.
