Kick-Off Result

2 Loving Embrace: The ref understands that this time of year the players are even more loving than usual and allows the love to “flow” appropriately.

No players will be sent off for fouling until a casualty has been caused by a foul or the drive ends. Once a casualty has been caused all normal fouling rules apply. Secret Weapons still function as normal.

3 … THE FLOWERS!!! The ref has a hot date tonight and just realized he forgot to pick up flowers. Roll a D3 to decide how much time he needs to make up to grab them on the way over.

Roll a D3 and move your turn marker forward appropriately. 1: 0 Turns, 2: 1 Turn, 3: 2 Turns. If this event would end the half for either team, both teams move their turn marker to 7 and each receive their final turn.

4 Came to play: The kicking team really came to play and isn’t distracted by everything else going on.

The kicking team’s coach may reorganize his players – in other words he can set them up again into another legal defense. The receiving team must remain in the set-up chosen by their coach.

5 Love is in the air: Like literally! Somehow a pink gas cloud has formed and is hovering over the pitch.

The gas cloud causes the ball to move slowly while in it. Allowing a player on the receiving team time to move into the perfect position to catch it. Any one player on the receiving team who is not in an opposing player’s tackle zone may be moved into the square where the ball will land no matter what their MA may be, as long as the square is unoccupied.

6 Dat Outfit Though… The Cheerleaders have ditched their normal uniforms for something more festive they picked up at Victorian Sacrifice and really have the players excited.

Each coach rolls a D3 and adds their team’s FAME and the number of cheerleaders on their team to the score. The team with the highest score gains a re-roll this half. If both teams have the same score, both teams gain a re-roll.

7 Weather Update: Mawllie Killiams weather reporter for “The 17th Turn” is down on the sideline with a weather update.

Make a new roll on the Weather table. Apply the new Weather roll. If the new Weather roll was a ‘Nice’ result, then a gentle gust of wind makes the ball scatter one extra square in a random direction before landing. If the resulting change in weather is Pouring Rain, the receiving teams coach is to stand up and exclaim loudly “IT’S GUNNA RAIN BLOOD!!!” If they do not however, their opponent gains a re-roll this half.

8 We’re on to Reikland: Among the current festivities, as well as the chaos that ensures on a daily basis. The coach has kept his eye on the prize and has prepared well for the match.

Each coach rolls a D3 and adds their team’s FAME and the number of assistant coaches on their team to the score. The team with the highest score gains a re-roll this half. If both teams have the same score, both teams gain a re-roll.

9 I just want to be close to you: The players of the offense just want to get a little closer to their opponents.

All of the players on the receiving team are allowed to move one square. This is a free move and may be made into any adjacent empty square, ignoring tackle zones. It may be used to enter the opposing half of the pitch.

10 Oh no they didn’t!!! While waiting for play to resume, one of the players looks up in the stands and see’s their current love interest cheating with an opposing team fan!

Each coach rolls a D3 and adds their team’s FAME. Select a random player for the coach that won the roll. For the remainder of the drive that player becomes enraged and gains the Frenzy skill. Roll a D6 for the same player, on a 6 it turns out it’s not a fan but an opposing teams reserve player! The player gains Mighty Blow in addition to Frenzy.

11 Goo Goo Eyes: It’s this time of year even the players start falling for one another!!!

Each coach rolls a D3 and adds their team’s FAME. Select a random player for the coach that won the roll. For the remainder of the drive that player for whatever reason is so entrancing to the opposing team that they gain the Hypnoticgaze skill. However, if they would ever fail the Hypnoticgaze roll. The player that the gaze was attempted upon gains Hypnoticgaze and the player who had it loses it as they ran into someone even more entrancing than themselves.

12 Passionate Fans: One way or another a group of “passionate fans” have made their way down to the sidelines and are showing their “talents” to the players.

For the remainder of this drive any player that would begin their action in either wide zone must make a Bone-Head roll. On a 2+ they may take their action normally. On a 1+ they are otherwise preoccupied with what is happening on the sidelines and is considered Bone-Head.

Wish I could make it up to visit some family while I was there. Give more notice next year and I'll try to make it work!
