**RANDOMIZER**: 

– All lists will be built with the Random List Generator:  http://www.infinityutilities.de/randomlistgenerator

– To ensure that no-one randomizes repeatedly until a perfect list comes up, Spud will generate the lists for all participants. Either poke Spud Spudlington on Facebook or e-mail him at captainspud@gmail.com, specifying the faction or sectorial you’d like to use, and he’ll reply back with four army lists for you to choose from. Pick the two that seem most playable or that best align to your collection, and use those at the event.

– You may rearrange the combat groups of the lists you receive, as long as all of the same units and profiles are retained.

-Soldiers of Fortune **ARE** allowed
-Spec Ops **ARE NOT** allowed

Prizes:
-Store credit prizes for top-placing players. The amount of the prizes will vary depending on the number of attendees.
-All attendees will receive a custom-made NEOCANADA 2020: YEAR OF THE INDIGNANT HONKBIRD patch (if they don’t have one yet).

Be sure to register on the ITS site at this link: https://its.infinitythegame.com/event/0428506eb-300pt-special-format-its-event-randomizer

Army lists can be sent in early for review to alexander.kus@gmail.com.

5 – 50% or more of the army is painted and based to the above standard
0 – Less than 50% of the army is painted and based to the above standard

Sportsmanship: This will be scored on a Pass/Fail system. Everyone starts with 10 Sportsmanship points. For each “Fail” you receive, 2 points will be deducted from your Sportsmanship score. If you Fail someone, please be prepared to explain your reasoning to the TO in detail. We are all here to have a good time.

Prizes: We will put $20 (minus the cost of the pizza) towards a prize pool, which will be in the form of Store Credit. The top players will split this prize pool based on how well they do!

Blood Bowl BKBBL Season 17

Secretary Kip: “Mr. Vice President, Commissioner Awesome just sent this telegram…it says he isn’t coming back from his Lustrian vacation, and that we should just move the league there this year…”

SK: “It seems so sir…”
VP BK: “Well that’s insane. Teams have stadiums, sponsorships, fanbases, we can’t just move because the Commissoner is working on his tan!”
