Check out the 2001 Rules Review rules, available from the Downloads
page. If there is any interest out there in trying out these rules
using the Blood Bowl IRC client, contact
me. If there's enough interest I'll reactivate the PBBL to test out
I'm currently learning some JSP and SQL, hopefully over the summer I
can get these pages automated to make running a league fairly
The P.B.B.L. now uses full 4th Edition Gold rules, as published
on the official Games Workshop Fanatic Blood Bowl website.
Differences are listed on the rules page.
Downloads page now open, containing the 4th Edition Gold rules,
Blood Bowl IRC client, and other necessary files.
Just an on-the-fly clarification to taking Allies. An allied position player takes the place of a similar position on your team. If there are no similar positions, then the allied player may take the place of any positional player on your roster.
Example 1: A Human team takes an allied Wood Elf Catcher. The Wood Elf then counts towards the Human team's 0-4 Catcher limit, thus he may take 0-3 Human Catchers.
Example 2: A Chaos team takes an allied Dark Elf Thrower. Since the Chaos team does not have any
thrower positions, then the Dark Elf counts towards the Chaos team's 0-4 Chaos Warrior limit.
Further clarifications will be made when I am able to publish the rule to the Allied Players rules page.
Match Report and Join The League forms are now working correctly. Both are in the league section.
The first game of 4th edition has been played between the Morrislem Maulers and Liberi
Doloris. After 16 turns of Dwarfs knocking over Undead, the dust settled with a 1 all tie! No noticeable difference has sprung up, even Mighty Blow was unaffected, as all my armour rolls were too low for MB to have any effect. 2+
Just added rookie Unicorns into the mix. Amazons, High/Wood Elf and Brettonian only.
The PBBL pages have been completed, and full rules for 4th edition changes can now be found in the rules section. All allowed races can be found in the races section.
Now all we require are a few coaches to put 4th edition through its paces.
Welcome to the newly re-vamped PBBL homepage. Herein you'll find rules and races for a smaller, play-test league based on the 4th edition rule-set.
Tad Wesley's Araby
Wood Elf Mages have been altered: their Heal
spell now works on a 3+, rather than the 2+ used by
Apothecaries. Only one attempt to Heal or Apothecary each injury
may be made. Thanks to JThan for this idea.
Since I'm the only commish, if you want to
join the PBBL simply find another coach who also wants to join, follow
the steps outlined on the Joining the
League page, and then play a game!
Also, what does everyone think of letting Big
Guy teams start with 7 players instead of 1,500,000gp? E-mail
me your thoughts.
Lastly, the Khemri
Undead team is being developed. Does anyone have any ideas
for allies, wizard or possibly another position? E-mail
