White Isle Star Bowl IV

It's back after a 4 year hiatus, with the classic crazy ruleset that you used to love. Excitement for everyone, and lots of prizes to play for, including a pro-painted team for the winner!

Held in the picturesque village of Great Chesterford, on the Essex, South Cambs border. The railway station is 30 seconds walk away, and there is lots of parking.

Full rules: https://www.dropbox.com/s/rmvvt8xcaec6h ... V.pdf?dl=0

Summary:
Only £15!
TV1.1 - 6 rounds swiss
Tiered racial selection
Opportunity to create your own star player that you always dreamed of!
Prizes for the star that causes the most cas, and most TDs. Prize for the most imaginative and exciting team build.
A free gift for every attendee.

First person to book in each race get to be the 'champion' for that race, with a line player gaining pro - and potentially winning bonus prizes.

(Awaiting NAF approval, but please start excited comments now.)

This is nonsense, and I also approve. Until game one. ;)

Kidding aside, I am paid up. Looking forward to Pro based shenanigans. Let's go Cambridge tournaments!

Can tier 3 teams take stars?

This passage seems ambiguous: "only tier 4 races can take up to 1 star player. If you wish to hire a star player for your tier 3 team, then you must have 11 rostered players first."

Very interested although I suspect I'm in Cornwall that week. I will let you know if I can make it - I'll also share with the BB players at my club as this is under an hour from Chelmsford.

Thanks Joe - good spot. I'll update that tonight. It is only tier 4 teams that can take a bought star player. [Edit: now fixed]

Goo - which race will you champion!?

Let's go Necro. Only ever used them once.

I'm a little flummoxed by this picking a team three months before turning up thing. I hope it doesn't catch on, but who can turn down the magic of a Pro Zombie? ;)

Pro zombie ftw. I want to see him up there for most tds!

Don't forget, you can just pay and pick any team on the day... But you wouldn't get to be a champion then!

If you take a 13 man fouling roster then we have concrete evidence that the NAFC broke you. ;)

I look forward to seeing what kind of monster you create as Champion of Norse!

Quick question (sorry if this is covered in the rules but can't check on my phone...)...

Can you give the "star" skills they normally don't have access to? E.g. could I give a goblin a mutation...or an extraordinary skill perhaps?

Just wondering quite how crazy I can get with this...

Doesn't look it. In the rules pack there is:

Normal, MA, or AV = 2pts
Double = 3pts
AG = 4pts
ST = 5pts
Remove negatrait = 3pts
Pro = 1pt (because Pro is awesome)

You have 12 points to spend, and the star gains Loner after all else is done (so you cannot remove it).
