|The Second Annual Orcland Slaughter and Block Challenge, run by the Oakland Blood Bowl League ("OBBL") will be held on Saturday, November 5, 2011 at EndGame (www.endgameoakland.com) in Oakland, California. The tournament will have space for 24 coaches and will consist of 4 rounds of Blood Bowl action. The tournament will be CRP, with Slann / Underworld / Pact teams also welcome.|
Teams must be TV 1000 (1m gp in starting value). All coaches will receive a skill package consisting of Three (3) Regular skills, one (1) double skill and one (1) mutation, with the caveat that no one player may have any more than one added skill and no skill may be selected more than twice. The regular race/team mutation limitations will not apply, so every race will have access to one mutation of the coach's choosing. For example, if you've ever been daft enough to want to see a Black Orc Blocker with Very Long Legs, well here's your chance.
The tournament is a resurrection tournament, so all injuries will be erased at the end of each round. Table 1 will roll for Weather at the beginning of each round and the result will remain the same for all tables for the duration of the round. We will also be using a modified Kick-Off Table.
Coaches may roster the following inducements into their starting TV: Babes, Bribes, Master Chef, Star Players and Wandering Apothecaries. No other inducement types will be allowed.

10:00 – 10:30: Check in.
10:30 – 12:30: Round 1.

What To Bring
You should bring …
1 – Your BB team (fully painted is always nice, but is not required).
2 – 2 copies of your roster (one for yourself and one for the Tournament Director).
3 – Your BB board, dice, templates.
4 – Copy of the CRP (if you have it).
IP will not be called. The 4 minute rule will not be in effect unless both coaches agree to it beforehand. If it appears that a match is dragging to the point where it will delay the tournament, the Tournament Director reserves the right to implement the 4 minute rule for the remainder of the match at any time and / or end the match prematurely.
Narrow Defeat (lost by 1): .25 points.
Caused 1 more CAS than your opponent (blocks only): .25 points.
Caused 2+ more CAS than your opponent (blocks only): .5 points.
Won by 2 TDs: .25 points.
Won by 3+ TDs: .5 points.
The first round matchups will be by random draw. Each following match will be by Swiss pairing. Overall tournament ranking will be determined by total points scored over the course of the tournament. Tiebreakers will be resolved by:
1 – Cumulative Opponent’s Score; then
2 – Head to Head Record; then
3 – TD ratio (Scored / Allowed).
If this still doesn’t resolve any ties, the remaining tied coaches will duel on Washington Avenue outside of the venue with single-shot pistols at 10 paces ;).
Don’t be a dick. We’re all here to have fun. This is and should be your primary goal and mindset. The term “being a dick” will be interpreted solely by the Tournament Director, at his sole discretion. Good sportsmanship is required. Someone “being a dick” will be cautioned once. A second warning and the offending coach will be ejected from the tournament. For clarity’s sake, fouling every turn, stalling to preserve a victory and running up the score is NOT “being a dick.” Excessive gloating about it, on the other hand, is. Basically, if you have to consider asking yourself, "Am I being a dick?" then you are being one.
Each coach will be charged a $15.00 fee to participate in the tournament. All funds will be used to fund various awards for the tournament. Those funds will be spent on the following awards: Champion, Runner-Up, Most TDs, Most CAS (blocks only) and Wooden Spoon. Other prizes may be given out during the tournament at the Tournament Director's discretion.
We are all here to have a good time. This is the primary goal. Please keep this in mind. Should you wish to sign up and play in our tournament, please notify the Tournament Director at OrclandSlaughter@gmail.com and provide your contact information and your name (and your NAF ID and screen name, if you have one). You will then be given instructions on how to pre-pay for the tournament. Due to space restrictions, the first 24 people to sign up and pay for the tournament will be accepted. Overflow / empty slots may be a possibility on the day of the tournament. However, it is not guaranteed, so please sign up early if you definitely want to attend, just to reserve your space.
We look forward to seeing you there.
