  • Always hungry is on the Crab not because the Crabs eat the Cresters, it is there because they occasionally snip them in half with their giant claws when trying to throw them.

Giant Crab

Nautican - Are a race of fishmen that live in the Seas between the continents of the Old World and Amorica. They are typically a peaceful race, isolated from the land dwellers and un-interested by the wars that ravaged the lands above for many years.

Their existence in the Old World has always been in question. Fishermen in the port towns of Estalia to Araby told tales of small creatures with webbed feet and hands surfing on the crests of waves, then disapearing under the waves never to be seen again. The local towns folk never believed the rumours and even pilloried some sailors for telling such tales.

All this changed when the wars above ground to a halt and the different land dwelling races started playing Boodbowl. The Nautican witches interecepted the transmissions of the games being broadcast by the NBC (Necromancers Broadcasting Circle) and watched the teams competing in this brutal sport. The Nauticans king who had grown tired of the peaceful life under the waves ordered his followers to create a team and to go forth to the lands above to test his greatest warriors in a game of Bloodbowl. The king was not stupid and having watched many games from his palace in the depths, he was all to aware of how terrible the Ogre teams were and so he decided his team would face them in their first game.

Once word spread of the game - Humans, Orcs and beasts traveled from far and wide to see the Nauticans reveal them self to the world and compete in their first game of Bloodbowl.

The game however did not last long. The Nauticans team was made of a Giant Crab, Cresters - the Nautican Kings royal soldiers and Ignimbrite; a volcanic ash that transforms its self into the shape of the nearest living creature and capable of projecting balls of larva from within, both possible because of an incantation placed upon the ashy substance by the sea witches.

The Nauticans received the kick off first, and the Giant Crab tried to throw a crester down field with the ball but its claws slipped and sliced the Crester clean in half. The Ogres, realising that those giant crab claws could hurt them proceeded to gang up on the crab crushing it and ripping its limbs off in seconds. Meanwhile the Ogres sent their Snotlings to run interference against the Ignimbrite. The snotlings were very surprised to find that as they approached the morphing wet ash the Ignimbrite turned into grey Snotlings. The Snotlings were overjoyed to see an opponent that they might be able to hurt and proceeded to stamp all over the Ignimbrite for the rest of the game, they could not hurt the morphing ash, but they didn't mind, they were just happy jumping up and down in the wet sand, and relieved that they may actually live to play a second game. The Cresters were disheartened watching their Crab get killed and their Ignimbrite's reduced to lumps of sand, so they turned and fled back to the sea never to return again.

That is until now....

The reason Lizardmen are selected as Nautican Teams star players is because in Bloodbowl Magazine 5, a Skink star player formally of Soteks Word left the Lizardmen team and joined The Bluemen who are later described as a race that live under the sea. The rest of the rationale can easily be determined by reading the background above.
