    @Madmac - Humans - Backtown Brawlers

    The Grimdark Cup is a blood bowl season which has a league round and then a playoffs to determine the winner.

    All teams will start with 5 fan factor which does not need to be purchased.

    The league round:
    Will consist of 6 meets, where we will try to play at least one game at every meet and should try to play as many different opponents as possible during the 6 meets. You will score 3 points for winning, 1 for a draw and 0 for losing.

    At the end of the league team will be ranked first by points, then touchdowns (higher is better), then casualtys (higher is better) and finally ejections (lower is better). If all these factors are tied and both team agree they can play a round of overtime to determine position, otherwise a coin will be flipped.

    After the league the playoffs begin, which is a knockout tournament, how many rounds will depend on the number teams in the league. Matches which are a draw after turn 16 will immediately play a round of overtime to determine a winner.

    Semi finals:
    3D6 fans turn out, +20,000 income to losers, +40,000 income to winners

    3rd place match:
    Only 1D6 fans

    Final
    4D6 fans turn out, +50,000 income to loser, +100,000 income to winner

    Glittering prizes:
    Up to 1 hour of smugness and gloating
    If the same team is chosen to be redrafted next season it gets +1 to fame roll and a free reroll during league games.

    Overtime in playoffs:
    Overtime consists of an extra 4 turns, kick off coin is flipped, winner chooses to either kick or receive, if the receiver scores they win, if they don't score the kicker wins. Rerolls are not reset like half time.

    Overtime for league position.
    As above but have standard rerolls, injuries stand, do not make an MVP roll and income is halved.

    Participating teams will not have friendly matches during the league or playoff.

    Available Inducements:
    Star Players
    Famous Coaching Staff
    Mercenaries
    Bloodweiser Kegs
    Bribes
    Extra Training
    Wandering Apothecaries

    Optional rules used:
    Free fan factor
    Spiralling Expenses

    You may want to save your flexing for this one ghoul-Taku!
    You score five points for gryfindor if you can spot the ball in the same pic!

    Looking forward to the next game.

    Has anyone had any ideas for marking skills on players

    Also @CaptainDangerous you asked about base colours these are the usual ones

    Grey - lineman
    Red - blitzers
    White - thrower
    Green - blocker
    Yellow - catcher

    Cheers pressure! Tho you can keep the yellow -the colour of sneaky, dodgy, cowardly grots! :p:D

    I plan to mark their armour with marks for touchdowns (cross), casualties (tally), completion (arrow) and MVP (chevrons). I might mark the bases with block (square) and dodge (circle). And I’m toying with the idea of giving blork Medmommas Sox a bloody fist in recognition of his kill, but I’m not sure as I’m not sure I’ll be using this team again next season (I might do the unthinkable and play halflings!)

    And one last thing, the box at the top should read 7 casualties for the Orchids! I can’t be letting you weedy raider boyz thinking you iz da toughest! ;):D
