*Chaos Chosen Blocker* special rule change:
Indomitable: The player cannot be Knocked Down. If they would be, make an Armour check for them - if it is passed, they remain standing. If they had possession of the ball, it will scatter from their square as if they had been Knocked Down. If the Armour check is failed, they are injured.
Halfling special rule changes:
Slippery Little Runt: When this player is the target of a block action, and the result of that block is a Miss, Shove or Tackle, their coach can choose to ignore the result and this player makes an immediate free Sidestep action; if they are unable to make the free Sidestep action, the result of the Block stands.
Very Well Fed: Once per this player's turn, while this player is on the pitch, they can make a free Block or Mark action.
Sudden Death victories are not in effect for this tournament; all games are played until the end of the Challenge deck as normal
