Looks like that is the Zara replacement. Guess they didn't want to have to worry about getting sued by the creators of Buffy.

parodies fall under the fair use protection and cannot be reason for sueing.

It is always a tricky area of law as GW have found out to their cost when going after Chapterhouse. Often a much bigger company can bully a smaller one even if they are in the wrong (though GW was usually the one doing the bullying). So I suspect they didn't think it was worth even a tiny risk when they could easily rename her.

There has been a concerted effort from GW to make their fantasy range less generic with the creation of AoS. So I can certainly see them doing the same with BB, after all they renamed some of the positionals in Deathzone 1.

This sounds worryingly BB2 - silly stadium upgrades anyone?

Refs! But 'well known coaching staff' sounds more like famous coaches etc rather than new coaching positions, so perhaps no wiz yet.

POMB back? (hope not) new skills - or just those few still missing from DZ1 eg animosity for U-world and secret weapon skills (probably, I think)

New skill will likely be kick team mate.

Some of that looks very worrying...

The Wizard is already there in the special play cards in BB2016, there's a fireball card, a lightning bolt card, and a zap card. I don't really see that it needs to come back in another form, we just need a deck that includes effects that good for something like 200k a card.

"Just", he says, with a knowing smirk. Poor Kalimar. Very Happy


Well, this is a good point. GW might not bring back wizards because they are in the deck of cards now.

If you are playing BB2016 TT, then yes, you can buy a card to give you a wizard spell.

On FUMBBL though we are still playing with CRP cards and thus no access to the spells.

Lets see what happens in BB Season #3 expansion. It seems wizards will not show up in Season #2.

Season #3 or later on we might see a expansion of the available deck of cards to choose from at various Gold values. Harken back to the golden days of Death Zone in 3rd Ed or the optional decks found in CRP.

I hope that one of the new refs has a chainsaw and when ever he ejects a player they take a chainsaw attack.

Stadium upgrades? Well, you could go hog wild with this and have a small civ like meta to build your stadium from the ground up. You start with just a dirt lot. Then have to build up every aspect of the stadium. Is it cheesy? sure, but then again some coaches would love to build up their own stadium and stuff.

The options for this is almost endless. Upgrade your Hot Dog vendor to Lv 2 or buy the Bloodweiser beer stand? Add a second deck of seats or upgrade the dugout out to make them less pitch invasion prone?

For some this would be fun, for others, meh, who cares.

Well I think the stadium is a good idea. and I love the principle that PainState puts forwards about upgrading from a dirt lot. Fluff wise it also makes sense. bankrupt league teams sell up and go roaming. eventually they will settle down and build from scratch again. Also I'm guessing without stadium owners taking a cut of th winnings you could get + gold for a home game on your own pitch? also could make some proper funny expensive mistakes rolls. (builder runs off with your cash) (stadium made of substandard material and collapses etc.

well we know what the new secret weapons are now.

They are

Doom Diver, player with a skill called Swoop. We don't know what this is yet, but if I were to guess I would say d3 scatter instead of d8 for TTM, you pick the direction it faces. Or RR landing.

The other is 'Ooligan a goblin with fan favourite.
Neither have Secret Weapon skill

sadly trolls have loner still....

Or maybe longer TTM range.
