Rosenstadt Rumble is a NAF-approved, resurrection-style, four-game, two Saturday Blood Bowl Second Season Edition tournament at the Ordo Fanaticus clubhouse in SE Portland, Oregon. Games one and two will be held on April 10th 2021, and games three and four, as well as awards, will be held on April 24th 2021. Both days begin at 10am PDT, and should end around 4pm PDT each Saturday.
Rosenstadt Rumble is limited to the first eight participants in order to comply with the Multnomah County moderate risk guidelines. COVID-related precautions, including mandatory mask use, will be enforced. Coaches who refuse to comply will be asked to leave, and will not receive a refund.
Coaches are expected to bring:
•Their painted team, including coaching staff
•Dice, tokens and other in-game indicators
•A BB2016 or later pitch, dugouts and templates
•A BBSSE rulebook
•Five copies of their approved roster
•A great attitude!
Each game will be limited to two hours and fifteen minutes. If coaches have not begun the second half by one hour and fifteen minutes, both coaches will have a mandatory four-minute turn timer; if the time expires, the coach may finish the active player's activation and then their turn is done. All models on your team must be numbered to your matching roster, and all added skills must be clearly marked. CTV will not be calculated before each game, and the inducement phase is completely skipped, including the Prayers to Nuffle table.
The tournament winner will be determined from tournament points, which are earned from each game. Points are scored as follows:
•Win: 30 points
•Draw: 10 points
•Loss: 0 points
oWon by two or more TD’s: 5 points
oInflicted three or more casualties: 5 points
oFinished before time is called: 2 points
Awards include: Rosenstadt Rumble Champion, Best Offense, and Most Brutal.
Coaches have 1.2M gold crowns to build their team. Coaches may choose any team from the Blood Bowl Second Season Edition (BBSSE) rulebook, the most-recent Teams of Legend document, or from the most-recent NAF-approved team lists. Coaches may purchase players, Team Re-Rolls, Sideline Staff, and Dedicated Fans as stated in the BBSSE rulebook, and as their team rules allow. A coach must purchase eleven players, and a Star Player may be your eleventh player. Teams with the Low Cost Linemen receive no benefit at Rosenstadt Rumble. The following inducements are also eligible for purchase, at the quantities, cost and restrictions listed in the BBSSE rulebook:
·Temp Agency Cheerleaders
·Part-time Assistant Coaches
·Extra Team Training
·Halfling Master Chef
·Star Players (only BBSSE Stars)
·(In)Famous Coaching Staff: Josef Bugman and any Staff from BB2016 publications
Players may not purchase any inducements not listed above which includes special play cards and Wizards.
Coaches will have 36 SPPs to distribute across the players on their team. There are no restrictions on how these SPPs can be distributed; in other words, go wild! Do you want a player with two chosen secondary skills? Awesome! That will cost you 26 SPPs, and likely hinder the remainder of your team. Coaches are allowed to purchase random skills and characteristic improvements, but will pay the cost associated with the choice they made. Example: an Orc Blitzer will pay 18 SPPs for a random characteristic increase, but if the coach rolls a PA improvement, the coach may select a skill as stated in the rules, but will still pay the full 18 SPPs for the chance at the characteristic improvement. All random skills and characteristics will be rolled in front of the Tournament Organizer during registration, and are static for all four-games of the tournament. No subsequent random skill or characteristic rolls are made at the beginning of game two, three or four.
