Just incase you missed it previously here is a great post about Bloodball and it's standard set of rules.

SPORTS FANS!

So you want to TAKE PART in the Known's FINEST SPORTING PURSUIT!?

Invented by House Kadius BUT ADOPTED AND PERFECTED BY ME – GREAT LORD RANDETH “THE SAVAGE” FALE THE RED through a series of INTENSE REVISIONS focusing on MAYHEM, BLOODSHED and the ULTIMATE expression of the ALLANAKKI SPIRIT, BLOODBALL is the team sport of CHAMPIONS.

What's the objective you ask? SIMPLE – EXECUTE THE HIGHLORD'S JUSTICE ON THE ENEMY TEAM'S CONVICT. Staked out to suffer at the hands of the assembled gladiators both of these criminals have been sentenced to death by BLOODBALL – pray to the Highlord that you don't join them.

But there is one complication – convicts may only be BLUDGEONED to death using the BLOODBALL – a flexible MACE designed to prolong the suffering of the condemned. It is the ONLY WEAPON permitted in the arena.

Play lasts until a convict is beaten to death – or dusk. But bore the crowd at your PERIL – they came for a spectacle and they'll get one – one way or another.

“But Great Lord – what about the other team?” I hear you mewl – well stop that! NO MEWLING. The answer's SIMPLE – pummel them into the DIRT so they can't protect their objective. EASY. There are NO HOLDS BARRED in the arena – fists, feet, bloodball, WHATEVER – the only law is the HIGHLORD'S – that only those sentenced to death may die. Kill another gladiator and the crowd gets a GRUDGE MATCH – with YOU as the goalpost.

Play begins with the bloodball itself being set at the centre of the arena and both teams taking their places at their respective posts. When a SIGNAL is given the teams are let loose.

“But Great Lord – bane of Tek'Serak, master of the Obsidian Storm – what should I do?” you beg – and you are right to beg! It will be the STRONG and WISE that survive! But, pitiful wretch – here are some SUGGESTIONS on how to structure your rag-tag team of would-be champions:

~ DEFENDERS or BLOCKERS must be assigned to guard and rescue the convict. Depending on the whims of the organizing highborn they may even be permitted SHIELDS.

~ RUNNERS and SCOUTS are needed to quickly assess enemy movements and attempt to quickly grab the bloodball, bringing it back to safety.

~ STRIKERS – these players will seek the enemy goal and look to smash their convict at range through throwing, or in melee.

~ ATTACKERS – the STAR PLAYERS – are gladiators that look to put down the enemy team, knocking as many out as possible to dismantle their defenses.

“But Great Lord – what if I -DIE-!?” you wail – and you're fortunate this is but text as I would love nothing more than to pulverise your SKULL for such cowardice! Death for the entertainment of the arena is the highest calling of any gladiator – but fear not, weakling – as, given a FORGIVING master of ceremonies the gates to the arena floor may be left open so incapacitated players can be bundled out by their peers and attended to by their TEAM MEDICS.

BLOODBALL is the ultimate spectacle but it is has endless permutations to entertain even the most slack-jawed of His City's denizens – such as the use of TRAINING WEAPONS, MOVING TARGETS or WILD BEASTS - the only limitation is the imagination of HIS HIGHBORN.
