I finally found a concept for my Blackbox Nurgle team:

What happens to all those poor souls that get fired by their coaches due to some minor inadequacy? Well, at least a few of them wander the world, frustrated and restless. Some of those get in touch with darker forces, incidentally or on purpose. And as dark forces like bloodbowl, they eventually enter the pitch again - alive and kicking.

All players bought for this team (except beasts) will be retired players.




Further requirements:
- appropriate name (after my fancy)
- no undead, big guy and stunty players
- no players from slann and lizardman teams
- no bull centaurs

If you have some retired players you'd like to see on my team, feel free to post a link in your answer. Smile



Players accepted so far
Patton (Purplegoo) - Rotter
Field Agent Taylor (DukeTyrion) - Rotter
Homer Simpson (Kryten) - Rotter
Skruv (orko_oskar) - Rotter
Cantillon Gueuze (Garion) - Rotter (R.I.P.)
Can't POW (flyor) - Rotter
Angelen Hothris (Craftnburn) - Rotter | Note to Craftnburn: His background story made him a perfect rotter candidate (see bio). Smile
Turgon (Araushnar) - Rotter
Mnemonix (Rijssiej) - Rotter
Keith Marks (Arktoris) - Rotter
Prince Joor (uzkulak) - Rotter

Aghieh (James_Probert) - Rotter
Coniston Bluebird (Garion) - Rotter
Archroy (KenThis) - Pestigor

Waiting list - rotters
Harviestone Bitter (Garion) | Note to Garion: Didn't want to start with three players from the same team.
AZZ-KiKR (Rijssiej) | Note to Rijssiej: Would make a perfect rotter but I'm not sure about the name.
Cynthia Airflame (Albemouff)
Ol' Dirty (BooAhl)
Te has pasado, Tim (zakatan)
Mister X (thedemon) | Note to thedemon: I'd love to have that ghoul on my team - fillers are in general sad figures. Very Happy

Bruktafn (DukeTyrion)
Zorro & Phantom "The Ghost Who Walks" (Kryten)
Siss (Prez)

Waiting list - warriors (humans, norse, amazons, marauders, chaos warriors and thralls only
Kevin O' the Glen (Macavity) | Note to all: He seems quite dead, but he was promised a second chance that he never got - perfect match, I'd say.
Abercrombie/Crom (Kinks)

Waiting list - pestigors (beastmen and pestigors only)
-- empty --

Pending decisions
Party Boy (JimmyFantastic) | Unsure about skilled pestigor to rookie pestigor evolution.

Declined
Fludgop (DukeTyrion) - died an honorable death (I guess)
Dragan Pantelic 4, Dieter Muller 5, Patrick Battiston 6 (Alf115) - players with various incarnations don't seem to fit in my concept, sorry. Sad
DOOM_er, lsSCaRa (Rijssiej) - trees rot but don't become rotters Smile
Various zombies (thedemon) - because they are zombies Wink
Spandex (Sixletters) - to big a guy
Cabrit II (zakatan) - the number thing...


Edit:
Added list headers and team link. Removed beastmen from the "not allowed" list - they are welcome now!

What about Patton?

He was the only legend I ever built, [R]'s brightest ever star Hobgoblin in terms of SPPs, and he had some silly, sub-optimal skills. Stick him on your team, sir, and I shall come cheer you. Wink

How about Samuro, a hybrid tank/wood-elf of an orc blitzer:

6 4 5 9 MB/Tackle

He'd still be around today, but niggling injuries caught up with him and we retired him for the betterment of the team. He'd love to get back into action.

(edit: I think he'd make a good Nurgle Warrior)

Well, not much has been heard about Field Agent Taylor since his memory was wiped, perhaps he ended up as a Nurgle.

Willing to donate Ember. A niggling injury today and he would still be playing for me.

EDIT: Er, never mind. He's a Chaos player.

It wouldn't suprise me if Aghieh was to be found on a nurgle team after his disappearance into the crowd one game...

Homer Simpson

Homer played on my Academy team and has the most matches played at 45. As you can see, Homer never suffered an injury in all that time training up newbies, and was eventually fired. His crime? He got too good for the team! Please help him find a new home. Will work for beer.

Well, they think he died, but early stages of Nurgle's Rot look that way sometimes.

http://fumbbl.com/FUMBBL.php?page=player&op=view&player_id=1506343 My first "hero", forgot to build a team around him.

If you are taking 'formerly' Dead players, then Fludgop might also fit in.

Wow, those are great guys! Thanks for all the offerings!

Just to make it clear: Most of them will end up as rotters and probably only have a short second career... Plus: I'm not a great coach and sometimes have strange ideas while playing, so they might end up as... well, anything. And their team will probably not be a very successful one. Wink

So, in many cases, just like their first careers? Smile

These 3 were all good players from the same team, retired for niggles and a St drop.
I'm sure they would be proud to be rotters Smile
