OBBLM is the Online Blood Bowl League Manager, and is the mostly widely used way of managing the teams and statistics for your tabletop Blood Bowl league. There is a wiki for how to install it and use it, but this page is the NAF’s attempt to simplify the process as much as possible to help out as many leagues as we can!
There is now a helpdesk available on theendzone.co: http://theendzone.co/groups2/89-obblm.html
Once you have installed it, or if you just want to know how to use it as a regular coach, read all about entering a match etc.
If you want to get online, you have 3 main options, depending on how comfortable you are with making changes to websites:
- Use thenaf.obblm.com
- Sign up for yourleague.obblm.com
- Install OBBLM on your own existing webpage
NAF – Hosted OBBLM
Getting a league hosted by the NAF is simple. We don’t check you’re a NAF member, but it would be polite! Simply go to http://thenaf.obblm.com/ and Register, then Click on Home > Request league, and one of our admin team will be in touch. For help using NAF OBBLM once you’re in, check out this guide – Using NAF OBBLM.
For $5 a year you can get your own OBBLM site, hosted by mercuryvps.com, which comes with OBBLM installed. You can then configure the code for this site either through the online File Manager or through ftp access, and the NAF Admins or the OBBLM creators can help with this process. This will allow you to have your own picture at the top and your own title to the webpage, for example. You can be guided through the process here.
The code for OBBLM is freely available, and you can install it on your own webspace. You can then make any changes you want to the code to allow for house rules, different displays, and anything else you are able to programme! The NAF has substantially developed OBBLM into NAFLM, and you can see here for full details.
