On certain mornings, as the first rays of light radiate from the dawning sun, a long white cloud can be glimpsed in the distance over the rippled blue waters off the coast of the Southern Wastes. Tormented by the stifling heat and relentless dry winds turning their skin to leather, the Blood Bowl tragics are contemplating an off-season going to seed and withering like weeds under a good dose of 'Roundup".
Then one day in late December, a voice is heard drifting over the waves.
"Cricky dick! Bro, stop stuffing ya face with greasies and come here. Can't be sure based on the togs, but there is some pakeha cuz over other side."
"Sheez Bro, you ain't wrong."
"Now that Chrissy is done, you think that they might be wanting a tiki tour over here and play some Bloodbowl?"
The sun-addled brains absorbed the word 'Bloodbowl,' triggering an involuntary response. Before you could say, "couldn't see the road to the dunny if it had red flags on it," all the blokes and mates got a into g, grabbed their gummies went sailing off to Aotearoa to find Waikikamukau and play Bloodbowl in cooler climes.
"Sweet as. Hey bro, rattle your dags and make sure the chilly bin is chocka with L&P, get your nana to jack up some savs and pavs, and don't forget the chocolate fish from the dairy. This going be a piss up large, so better make sure that zambuck is around in case some dag carks it"
The Waikikamukau Bloodbowl Festival.
Open to all SWL teams, new and old, not currently playing in SWL proper. No TV limit and no age limit, so whether you are an LRB4 legendary team or a CRP rookie, you are welcome.
Format. Swiss chess scheduled rounds with seeding based on TV with overtime to avoid draws. Basically, the meaner and nastier you are, the more likely you will play together for the first couple of rounds.
The festival will use all the optional rules for Claw, Piling On, Right Stuff, Sneaky Git, and Stand Firm. So any dirty fouling 'flings and more than welcome to come and put the boot in.
The festival management has done a great deal with the local wizarding guild and got them to sponsor each game with some special items. This is pot luck, but every team will receive 100 gold to spend with the guild on CARDS before each match.
Prizes are to be determined, but as with all festivals, everyone is a winner.
