Bloody benefits

Vampire teams get the following advantage due to the stadium owners favouring their own.

Resurrection

This is a resurrection tournament. Casualties are ignored at the end of the game, no SPPs or winnings are ever earned and your team-value is never calculated. In essence you play with the exact same team all 6 games.

Illegal procedure:

Will not be called in this tournament in order to keep things nice and friendly.

Time limit:

Each game will have 2 hours and 15 minutes to be completed. If the game seems to be progressing too slowly, the referees can place a chess clock with half the time remaining per coach to be used for the rest of the game. When your time has run out you are only allowed to stand your models up, or place them for kickoffs, but may not take any further actions.

Dice:

No dice hogging, any dice used are allowed to be used by both coaches. Any cocked dice should be rerolled.

Vampire ball mood table

The weather table is replaced by this table.
2: Hungry ball
The ball is hungry and needs blood. The ball will drag the player towards the closest unsuspecting victim with surprising force! The ballcarrier gains blood lust (unless he already has it.) All other players on his team are valid to bite.
3: Flapping ball
The ball flaps its wings wildly, all passes risk that the ball changes trajectory midthrow! -1 to pass rolls. Throw team mate gets -1 only if the thrown player is carrying the ball.
4-5: Playful ball
The ball wants to play and tries to chew on everyone it gets close to. A skillfull player can use this to harm his opponents. Ballcarrier gains stab.
6-8: Sleeping ball
The ball is sleeping and does not affect the game. If this result is rolled on a kickoff, the ball hovers and scatters one square before landing.
9-10: Crooning ball
The ball is gently crooning a mesmerizing song, the ballcarrier can hold the ball next to an opponents ear causing him to fall into a trance. Ballcarrier gains hypnotic gaze.
11: Writhing ball
The ball does not want to be handled and is writhing away from players trying to grab it. -1 on all pick up-, intercept and catch rolls.
12: Screaming ball
The ball screams loudly and distracts the player holding it. The ballcarrier gains bone head.

12+ players on the pitch:

If a team has too many players on the pitch, the surplus players and one extra player will be randomly selected to be removed from play and placed in the reserves box. If the ballcarrier is removed, bounce the ball from the square he was placed in. This does not cause a turnover.
