Waikikamukau
On certain mornings, as the first rays of light radiate from the dawning sun, a long white cloud can be glimpsed in the distance over the rippled blue waters off the coast of the Southern Wastes. Tormented by the stifling heat and relentless dry winds turning their skin to leather, the Blood Bowl tragics are contemplating an off season going to seed and withering like weeds under a good dose of ‘Roundup”.


Then one day in late December a voice is heard drifting over the waves.
“Cricky dick! Bro, stop stuffing ya face with greasies and come here. Can’t be sure based on the togs, but there is some pakeha cuz over other side.”
“Sheez Bro, you ain’t wrong.”
“Now that Chrissy is done, you think that they might be wanting a tiki tour over here and play some Bloodbowl?”

The sun-addled brains absorbed the word ‘Bloodbowl’, triggering an involuntary response. Before you could say, “couldn't see the road to the dunny if it had red flags on it”, all the blokes and mates got a into g, grabbed their gummies went sailing of to Aotearoa to find Waikikamukau and play Bloodbowl in cooler climes.

“Sweet as. Hey bro, rattle your dags and make sure the chilly bin is chocka with L&P, get your nana to jack up some savs and pavs and don’t forget the chocolate fish from the dairy. This going be a piss up large so better make sure that zambuck is around in case some dag carks it”

The Waikikamukau Bloodbowl Festival.

Rules.

Open to all SWL teams new and old, not currently playing in SWL proper. No TV limit and no age limit so whether you are a LRB4 legendary team or a CRP rookie you are welcome.

Format. Swiss chess scheduled rounds with seeding based on TV with overtime to avoid draws. Basically the meaner and nastier you are the more likely you will play together for the first couple of rounds.

The festival will use all the optional rules for Claw, Piling On, Right Stuff, Sneaky Git and Stand Firm. So any dirty fouling ‘flings and more than welcome to come and put the boot in.

The festival management have done a great deal with the local wizarding guild and got them to sponsor each game with some special items. This is pot luck, but every team will receive 100 gold to spend with the guild on CARDS before each game.

Prizes to be determined, but as with all festivals, everyone is a winner.

Sign up here, post here and lets have a great off season blast before SWL starts afresh in 2017

The Waikikamukau Festival kicks off on Boxing Day!! 26th of December the day after Christmas ;-)
MRS SMACKS SMACK TOURNEYS
Better than a Halfing Chef's pastries, Mrs Smack produces the best lard bun wrapped gravy and meat morsels in the Southern Wastes. Guaranteed to hit the spot a Mrs Smack pie, pasty or sausage roll is the nourishment of choice amongst Southern Wastes Blood Bowl fans.

Long term denizen of the Southern Wastes <<<deposed>>> has secured Mrs Smack as naming right sponsor for SWL Fringe SMACKS. Fast, furious and fun for players and fans alike, PM ramchop or subscribe to the SWL Fringe Touneys Forum Topic to keep in the loop.

SMACKS are KO tournaments of at least 4 Fringe teams. Arranged at the drop of the hat in SWL discord, or perhaps flagged a little ahead of time in the forums. Fringe Teams, old and new, big and small, loved and hated, can stretch their legs and show they still have what it takes to win something.

TV restricted SMACKS are for those terrified to match up to the big boys. First round TW must be at of below the stated level. Subsequent rounds, TV increase cannot be more than skills gained, winnings won, or fan factor ummm factored.

The Greatest SMACK is of course the unrestricted OPEN

And a new addition. Sevens SMACKS, open TV. Max 7 on the pitch, minimum 2 on LOS, and none in the wide zone.

THE THUNDERDOME
- AN SWL MAJOR


"Listen on! Listen on! This is the truth of it. Fighting leads to killing, and killing gets to warring, and that was damn near the death of us all. Look at us now, busted up and everyone talking about the Great War! But we've learned! By the dust of them all, we've learned. Now, when men get to fighting, it happens on the pitch, and it finishes on the pitch! Two teams enter; one team leaves."



WELCOME TO ANOTHER EDITION OF THUNDERDOME!

Post your team below by August 11th @ 7pm (Sydney time) to apply

Another year has passed, and it is back!

After two hard years on the Thunder Road, Fringetown has this year decided to open the gates to any team that dare enter!.

REIGNING CHAMPS: FREEZY TREES (ramchop)





TOURNAMENT BRIEF
  1. • A Fumbbl tourney for the Australasian time zones with weekly rounds
    • Open for any [L]eague team of the default ruleset, new or old (not open to active SWL teams, unless leaving SWL proper)
    • Max roster size: 14 players
    • Three rounds Swiss with overtime; then top half (rounded up to 2, 4, 8, etc.) plays TV-seeded King of the Hill. Winner plays the reigning Thunderdome Champions. The bottom team in the Swiss stage will have to face The Wheel (read on, read on)
    • No extensions
    • Banned Sneaky Gits goes to KO box
    • All teams receive 300k extra inducement money allowance for each game, to be spent like this:
    50k to be spent on 1 Dirty Trick
    100k to be spent on bribe(s)
    150k that must be spent on player(s) with the Secret Weapon Skill (including Mercs with SW like Loonies and Deathrollers)
    • You must spend as much of the 150k in this way as possible and you can also add other (normal) inducement cash to hire for instance a Mercenary Deathroller. Any spare cash after your maxed out secret weapon purchases may be spent as normal
    • Note: Elves not having access to Secret Weapons, must instead spend this 150k on a combination of Cards/Apothecary/Babes/Bribes
    • Take care getting the inducement buying phase right!

    • If mistakes are made during the inducement phase, you can have the game restarted by Fumbbl staff (ie. ramchop ;-))




DO NOT READ ANY FURTHER!!!

... unless you want to know all about the prizes, the fluff, the secret weapons, and the rostered star players...




STAGES
The tournament has 3 stages.
  1. Thunderdome Swiss
    Thunderdome Knockouts
    The Thunderdome Final



WHAT IS THUNDERDOME?
A tournament in Fringetown (aka godforsaken place) named after the local Blood Bowl stadium. A slightly oval shaped astrogravel pitch, with a massive overbuilt steel dome that spectators climb onto.

Fringetown (aka filthy pit of swine) has rigged the Thunderdome with all kinds of traps and weapons. They have also rigged the draw -- making sure the biggest teams face off towards the end of the knockouts.

Note: The Champions don't compete in the tourney, and are automatically qualified for the Thunderdome Final. If the Champions are unavailable, the last game of the Thunderdome Knockouts doubles as the Thunderdome Final. The reigning champion may enter a new team in the tournament, however this means forfeiting their chance to defend the title.

***Did you know...
When the Tunderdome hosted the final of the Big Guy Cup between two local ogre teams, the Big'un Bogans and the Bogan Bigwunz, the game had to be suspended at half time as the entire Thunderdome collapsed under the weight of several hundred cheering ogre fans climbing back on after their half time snacks. The second half was played a whole year later. Then as a Goblin 7s game.





THE FINAL
"Two teams with a gutfull of fear!
Ladies and gentlemen,
boys and girls,
dying time's here!!

Deep in the Southern Wastes...

...desert winds race uninterrupted across endless leagues of scorched earth. Ever erratic, the winds this particular day offer up the fractured remains of a skull, as it comes skittering across the sands. For an age it has wandered the desert like a nomad, seemingly doomed to the mercy of the winds, but finally its path has now terminated at this barren piece of ground marked out in the middle of nowhere. A behomothian orc spots the skull as it comes to rest, and looking immensely pleased, wanders over and straps the skull to his shoulder pad.

This is the Fringe... there may not be much else, but there is Blood Bowl!

WHAT IS SWL FRINGE?
The SWL Fringe is the entry portal for new coaches to the Southern Wastes League, and is home to most non-league Blood Bowl in the Southern Wastes. In these barren lands new legends are born, and old legends come to die. Play free standing fringe games versus other roaming teams; train your team for the next Fringe Tourney; raid Old World tournaments and bring back trophies & glory to the Wastes; prime your team for the SWL through the gruelling Trial of Blood; or stand in/on the rookies' way/throat as one of the Blooders.

ENTER THE FRINGE
As with the SWL, to participate you must be living in an area within the broad GMT+7 to GMT +12 timezones. (Usually this consists of Australian/New Zealand and East Asian areas). Each coach is allowed any number of [L]eague teams. These can be any team you like, a brand new team, an SWL team, or an [L] team that once played elsewhere but have migrated to the Fringe. Once in however, they're ours! No dodging in and out of the group except for when raiding Old World tournaments.
