At some point in our lives, Death will claim us all*. For Blood Bowl Players this is normally sooner than the rest of us.
Over the course of theÂ 154 games played in the league there have been some impressive deaths that Khorne himself would be proud of. Below are some facts and figures from the HDWSBBL vault. Please be aware that this information is gained from the match report sheets that you submit. As the information has not always been recorded in full, some information may be inaccurate.
- 50 recorded deaths over the last three seasons (Average of 1 death everyÂ 3 games)
- 11 of those have no recorded Killer!
- Only 1 person has killed them self (2508/09 Eagle Award Winner, Karond Kar Corsairs Witch Elf Venonia Spite)
- Only 1 of the dead has been re-risen. (Thomas Eckhart of the DrackWald Deadheads, formally of the Stickland Slammers).
While most players only get a â€œluckyâ€ kill once in their career, others excel at killing. Here is a list of the â€œTop Killersâ€ in the leagues history (I.E. any player with more that one Kill). At present it is a shot list!
|1||Takarath Balefire||Blitzer||Karond Kar Corsairs||4|
|3||Bowel Gusher||Ogre||Ragnars Swift Velocity||2|
|3||Dirk Hammett||Blitzer||Ragnars Swift Velocity||2|
|4||Athtar||Blitzer||Perverse Maidens of Torture||2|
As a result of all the Carnage on the pitch, Sly Sports (who have broadcast every HDWSBBL game) sponsored a new award, the â€œFinger of Death Awardâ€. This Award is to be awarded to the player to makes the most Kills in a single season. This award will be handed out for the first time at the end of the upcoming season.
So there we are. We hope that none of your players are visited by the Finger of Death this season. When completing the match report sheets in the future, please record who was the person who inflicted the injury so we can accurately track these deaths in the future.
*Alright, some people like Necromancers will live forever but slumming around in half-forgotten Graveyards is not really an exciting life.
