Hail Ramchop and Razmus. good work. I have been unable to get in games with my cube so well done.

As we prepare for BB2020, I am not sure how to move forward. Skill choices are changing as are how teams skill up. Also, Pact has a passer. How should this be incorporated?

Anyway, the Borg will have to change with the times.

Any time a Blood Bowl player gets assimilated (to others it seems to look like he has been killed), his or her useful skills will be added to the following list (other skills are recorded at the bottom).

A Dodge 21
G Block 18
S Thick Skull 7
G Frenzy 5
S Guard 5
A Leap 3
G Tackle 3
A Side Step 2
A Jump Up 2
M Foul Appearance 2
S Mighty Blow 2
G Sure Hands 2
G Dauntless 2
M Extra Arms 1
G Shadowing 1
M Disturbing Presence 1
A Diving Tackle 1
P Pass 1
M Horns 1
M Very Long Legs 1
P Dump-Off 1
M Prehensile Tail 1
G Kick 1
S Stand Firm 0

If a player of yours improves and rolls normal, simply pick the first skill from the top of the list that he/she can learn. Example: A Dark Elf Renegade and a Marauder would both learn Block on a normal first skill roll. Second normal skill would be Dodge for the Renegade and Thick Skull for the Marauder.

If your player rolls a double, he/she has to take the first skill from the top of the list that he/she can only learn on doubles. Example: Your previously mentioned Dark Elf would have to learn Thick Skull, while your Marauder had to choose Dodge.

If there's no such skill on the list, treat the roll like a normal roll.

If your player rolls a stat increase, it has to be taken as by the rules (i.e. AV before MA).


I don't think much needs changing. I'd prohibit random skills to avoid taking skills yet to be assimilated. Other than that let the Hive Mind decide what they'd like to save up for (e.g. stats, doubles) and from there priority picks as listed above.

Thrower. I think there are two ways of approaching this: Make any "Thrower" assimilated as a "Renegade Human Thrower".
or
Allow the Hive Mind to decide whether the "Thrower" is assimilated as "Renegade Human Thrower" or the appropriate Renegade Race position

Minotaurs and ROgres split. Which side of the split do Snow Trolls go?
