It is time for the second Major of the Ranked Season: The Ulthuan Invitational

Hello FUMBBL!! It is, I, Milford your humble servant and follower of all things majors related. I have arrived in Ulthuan under the cover of darkness after the "affair" in Skavenblight had me on the run and hunted by 20 gutter runner assassins. Lucky for me there was a group of adventures playing some Warhammer Quest in the dungeons below Skavenblight and they rescued me.

I once again take up residence in the Ritz sea side resort and casino. The pent house suite is fully stocked and this year I got a upgrade on the bed to a double king sized bed. It is so mammoth it takes me 3 minutes to find the edge of the bed and get out of the dang thing.

So, now is the time to get your team ready and set sail for the Ulthuan. This tournament though has very strict entry requirements. The qualifier round is split between light and dark teams. There will be 8 qualifiers in each group and they only take the top 64 teams in each group based on TV.

The light Group
The Ulthuan Invitational Light Qualifiers are for the following races: Amazon, Dwarf, Elf, Halfling, High Elf, Human, Lizardman, Norse, Slann and Wood Elf. There is a Team Value (TV) minimum for this tournament of 1650 TV. Teams will be given a spot in descending TV order (highest TV teams first).


The Dark Group
The Ulthuan Invitational Dark Qualifiers are for the following races: Chaos, Chaos Dwarf, Chaos Pact, Dark Elf, Goblin, Khemri, Necromantic, Orc, Rotters, Skaven, Undead, Underworld, Vampire and Ogre. There is a Team Value (TV) minimum for this tournament of 1650 TV. Teams will be given a spot in descending TV order (highest TV teams first). Only teams from the [R] division may apply.

So, make sure you apply to the right Qualifier Group.

Blood Sea Buccaneers have pulled into port and immediately head to the local pub to get properly drunk and in the right frame of mind for the upcoming tournament.

Buccaneers are primed and ready

Seriously folks.
Don't apply.
I need to get to top 8 in this one so I can let Crossdressers rest.
So - do something else with your life. Lets hope for 12 applicants! Thats Painstate, me and 10 more.
Very Happy

The Bored Supercomputer looks for another chance at glory. At least there will be no wood elf teams to stop us in the beginning.

The team hasn't lost against any other races since this happened a long time ago:

** Milford from the UI **

One of the fun aspects of the UI is "we" get to see all the uber high TV elf teams that are lurking around in the woods of the FUMBBL Ranked Div. You know, the ones who dodge everyone on gamefinder.

Now is our chance to trim some Elf TV and get the fans all excited.


**Edit: It could be they just "dodge" the Buccaneers all the time and have no issue playing every one else OR they are just better at "picking" compared to the Bucs. **

** Full Disclaimer: I think they dodge the Bucs because we are to damn good and they know their pointy ear elfs will get pounded so far into the pitch that only their boots will be sticking out of the weeds and grass **

** Milford from the UI **

I was lurking about the UI HQ and I have found out some breaking news.

It seems that the UI committee could not find last years champions.

Lame to Fame and it looks like they will not be around to defend their title. The rumor around HQ is that Lame to Fame went back to Lustria, walked into the jungle and like a mirage they all vanished.

Other reports/rumors I have heard is that coach Nielsh has been imprisoned in a Ulthuan prison since the conclusion of the UI last year because in his excessive celebration afterwards he broke around 8 laws involving debauchery, nudity and possibly "knocking up" a high born High Elf princess....Well if that is true at least he has some good memories of that night and hopefully a good story if he ever gets out.

** Morning update from the UI **

Good morning FUMBBL fanatics. Well it was a very interesting wake up call I got this morning.

It turns out that the hotel staff serves a posh continental breakfast, served in the room at 6:00 AM IN THE FREAKING MORNING!!!! Some lovely lady came walking into my room to deliver this breakfast. Needless to say I was a little groggy and wiped the morning druel from my mouth and implored to her that I cannot take any more. When she started yelling at me in some foreign tounge I finally came around and realized this was not my regular dream of a maid slipping into my hotel room in the middle of the night.

Well after that embarissing moment passed and I answered the phone from the hotel staff that I would no longer be getting a free continental breakfast served in my room. I pulled out my notes from the previous day of BB coverage and going over the sheets. Whille I destroyed the buffet line up they served on the breakfast. It seems they think 15 people are staying in the suite because I will have enough breakfast biscuits to last me until at least round 2 of the tournament in my room now.

I decided to take advantage of my penthouse suite balcaony and decided to start the day going over the BB rosters of teams I know are in town, sizing them up, looking over their lists to get a better grasp on who are the front runners and who are the first round exits. I reached over and grabbed my traditional whiskey on rocks with a orange slice in it, makes breakfast go down nice and smooth, plus the orange slice makes it a breakfast drink. I tried Blood Marys a few years ago but it made me feel weird drinking some wowans drink disquised as a breakfast drink, plus I get that vomit taste in my mouth when I see celery.

That was when I heard a comotion way down in the streets. I stood up and walked over to the edge of the balcony. Scanned the glorious horizon, the seaside below me, the port filled with ships, the sea gulls gliding on the morning drafts. The smell of sea salt in the air, the crispness of the morning dew still lingering, the smell of civilization was gone, replaced by purity and calm. Then I looked over as some guy who was two balconies over, he is stretching out, arms over his head, doing doing some strange stretching excersice, butt naked and showing his glorious 350LB body to ever wanted to witness, turned out I was the only one who witneesed.

That was when I heard that comotion again. I looked down from the 20th floor balacony and started to scan the streets. That was when the smile crossed my face. Down in the dock district there is a street with many taverns. I saw a man get thrown through a window at one of the bars and then a group of men moved out and a massive brawl started to take place. Then from around the corner 16 chariotes came rolling down the street. The Hellbound Charioteers dismount and jump into the fray. Bodies are flying left and right and the scrumm reaches a crescendo and then it is over. The Charioteers stride into the bar and take over the joint.

Well, it is official, the Hellbound are in town and this place is going to get very lively now.
