With the new Spike Journal being released, we now have a new Norse roster on the site. Apart from a couple of new traits and some minor changes, there are a couple of things existing coaches will need to know about this change:
- Throwers and Catchers are no longer available to purchase. Existing players will remain on the team until retired.
- Valkyries replace Catchers. No in-place changes have been made, and Valkyries need to be hired as any other new player. Catchers will use up the available Valkyrie slots though. The total number of Valkyries + Catchers can't exceed 2.
- There are new special rules that have replaced the previously existing set. Now, teams will need to choose between Old World Classic and Favoured of Khorne/Favoured of Chaos Undivided.
The last point is a bit tricky, and will need some work which I hope to address over the weekend. Without any action, existing teams will have no star player availability. To fix this, coaches need to make a selection. This selection is incomplete, and I will be working over the evening to sort it out. Hopefully, by the time most of you read this, things will be solved appropriately.
At the time of writing, the new star players are not in place (they will be added once I have sorted the special rule selection properly).
Other than that, if you have any issues with Norse (or related things), the best place to get in touch is on Discord.
