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”


"What is this Crap?" - DIBBL BB16 commish Happy_Amateur needed to vent. But he was alone, oh so alone. Fortunately he wore a number of hats and was perfectly capable of holding a conversation with himself.

H_A Shiny 2ic: It appears to be an old flyer from the West Island.

H_A DIBBL BB16 commish: The convicts held a tournament at Waikik? The cheek of it.

H_A Shiny 2ic: It's actually an annual event.

H_A DIBBL BB16 commish: How the hell have they gotten away with that? Surely RC wouldn't stand for such nonsense!

H_A Shiny 2ic: errr... well he ran two of them

H_A DIBBL BB16 commish: Under a West Island banner? I'm shocked. Truly shocked. And a bit disgusted.

H_A Shiny 2ic: Another kiwi picked up the baton and did the last three. Dunno who'll do it this year.

H_A DIBBL BB16 commish: I'll tell ya who. It's on the Isles, and it's getting run by the Isles. Now fetch me my crayons, we need a new flyer......

…and the crowds wept because the Fun Police had at long last retired their most scrupulous form of governance.

H_A DIBBL BB16 commish: Stuff this!

A blue crayon was hurled across the room, rebounded and hit him square in the face

H_A Shiny 2ic: Ouch!

H_A DIBBL BB16 commish: I used to be so good at art. Won that Form 7 prize and all. Really impressed Miss Karoo.

H_A Shiny 2ic: That was Primmer 4. Forget about doing something original. Don't muck about with a flier, just rip something off YouTube and whack it onto CabalVision.

H_A DIBBL BB16 commish: Like what?

H_A Shiny 2ic: Like this. It ticks all the boxes, cringey nostalgic parochialism. The Punters will lap it up

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AYvMeT2GC14

H_A DIBBL BB16 commish: Yeah, alright. But didn't he turn Ocker?

H_A Shiny 2ic: Pretty sure he switched back mid '17. Anyway, if the West Islanders know him, maybe a few of them will show up too.

H_A DIBBL BB16 commish: And the logistics? Don't want to let RC down.

H_A Shiny 2ic: That control freak will probably just step in and run the whole thing anyway. Leave the boring stuff to him. Anyway the Vineyard crew dropped in. We're off down the pub.

...the boring stuff

Image

- Kick off Boxing Day
- NZ time zone
- Swiss format
- Weekly rounds (up to 4 rounds)
- Overtime will be switched on in later rounds to help ensure a winner
- CRP/BB16 ruleset with the following additions
* Claw/MB do not stack.
* Piling On player is knocked out when rolling a double on armour or injury rolls.
* Right Stuff cancels Tackle on Blocks.
* Sneaky Git will move to the KO Box when sent off.
* +100k for cards, for both teams, use it or lose it.


- Any ex-DIBBL team or ex-CRP SWL team are welcome to apply
- Any BB16 SWL team from the draft era can also apply. Either after drafting to the prescribed TV, or without draft by dumping any gifted draft treasury unspent.
- Teams from other leagues may also apply if they can commit to the NZ timezone, and their team was never artificially boosted (e.g. by playing snotling-only teams in the build to their league).

Coaches apply in this thread, by PM to DIBBL BB16 commish Happy_Amateur, or on the NZBBC discord channel ( HERE )

Teams should apply to the Deserted Isles Blood Bowl Leeg here

A special thanks to SWL admin for allowing this competition to be run under the Deserted Isles umbrella.
