Pitch cleared score ~ Tombification 11 : 1 Blackbox
• Tomb Guardians are named after types of tomb
• Blitz Ras are named after some famous tombs
• Skeletons are named after human bones
- how original!
• Thro-Ras suck at throwing but we make 'em into bashers
• Players who earn a HOF spot advance the name (II, III etc) ~ game 187 onwards
First age: dawn of the star skeleton (games 1-89)
The first age for Tombification was dominated by two skeleton stars - Tibia and Sternum. One agile, one strong, they provided the main thrust for the team whilst tomb guardians and blitz ras generally died under the claws and mighty blows of their foes. This meant the team became quite unbalanced, as unskilled positionals were overmatched in high TV games and thus the survival rate was low.
Eventually, with injury-inflicted low AV, both skeletons succumbed, and the team got a chance to re-balance.
Second age: rise of the super foulers (games 90-158)
Foulers that received MVPs, have skills, and have racked up a long list of infractions and victims. It sounds broken, and probably is, but Carpal and Carpals
are making Blood Bowl history with their cruel exploits.
• Game 136
~ Carpal breaks all time blackbox fouls record
• Game 147
~ finally achieve a positive balance to the casualty statistics
• Game 157
~ Carpals goes down in a blaze of glory in his 144th game.
Third age: return of Fibula (games 158-224)
With Carpals gone but Carpal still left to carry the flag, the coach re-introduces Fibula
to the team. 30 games and 9 MVPs later, the star skeleton is running every play. The thro ras become blockers, whilst some handy Tomb Guardians finally emerge. Briefly the team has two +ST tomb guardians although they soon die.
• Game 187
~ Thorar, #1 all time Thro Ra blocker, dies; team reduced to 1440TV
• Game 206
~ disaster as Fibula is seriously injured -ST
• Game 220
~ a skeleton hattrick - it can only be Fibula \o/
• Game 223
~ Fibula becomes a legend but is niggled in the next game and retires
Fourth age age: Carpal's reign (games 224-?)
Many have come, many have fallen, but the super star and all time #1
