  4. The Rookie

    So I've been somewhat loathed to post a link here for some reason, but I guess I really should I started The Rookie podcast towards the end of last year and have recently released my 3rd episode. At best this is a the ramblings of a "completely new" player trying to get to grips with the game of Guild Ball, around not having a lot of time, and a small child on hand to take up whatever moments I have spare. In either case, its about as open as I can be about what I think of this game, as well as a desperate plea for someone to help me "Get Good". From this I hope great epic stories will unfold and a new world will open before me... or otherwise I can make a few friends and get hopelessly drunk at weekend tournaments. Both potentially being the same thing. Anyway, I hope you listen, and either discard this to the out bin in your office. Or keep it on your app of choice, should you be so kind. http://www.buzzsprout.com/135717 It is on iTunes as well should that help.
  5. Hello guys, I'm new player and I would like to make my own Morticians goal. I have no idea where to start. It would be nice, if you can give me advice, about what materials/tools/paint should I use. I would like to make me a coffin (something like on the picture attached, sorry for stealing to whoever did that great goal). I've been googling, but I'm little bit confused. Thanks for any advice! PS.: (I couldn't find any thread like this, so hopefully it will not be deleted, thank you.)
  6. This week I managed to get an interview with Strictly the Worst Guild Ball Podcast's own Alex Botts. We discussed his Union, the team that he took to the Guild Ball World Team Championship. He's pretty good at Guild Ball and threw some light on the dark world that is, Rage led Union. http://www.halloflegends.co.uk/2017/10/legendary-plays-with-alex-botts-on.html let me know what you think! regards Mr Hall
  7. Melodice

    I have recently discovered a website specifically designed to play music for whatever board game you are interested in playing to set a theme. I host an ongoing board game night every other weekend and have used it a few times. Out of curiosity I typed in Guild Ball and found an interesting play list that I feel could use a few tweaks. Check it out if you are interested. https://melodice.org/playlist/guild-ball-2015/

  9. Forum Challenge - Making the Cut

    Just do it. Slit his throat. He's lying there, waiting. "No" she said. The man in the barber chair opened his eyes looking up at her, her thick black fringe sticking to her forehead, she was profusely sweating. "I-is everything alright?" He stuttered. Valerie just smiled, before sliding her straight edge back across his supple throat, then back down again, taking away the soap with it. She wiped the blade on the flannel over his shoulder, "DONE" she exclaimed; an odd tone of relief rang through her voice. What a waste of time. She left him in the chair, getting some cold water to drink in the back of shop- "cool and calm" she said to herself quietly, staring straight at the water settling down after her swig. "Cool and calm". "Valerie." Edge interrupted her thoughts, "its time, get your kit, we're about to kick off." Valerie nodded at Edge, "I'll be there shortly." The Barbers Guild team captain, nodded and replied, "good, don't want to lose our star so soon." He winked and left, laughing. What was so funny, she thought to herself- probably at what you did to that baker boy last week. She shook the voice from her head and walked back into the barber shop. The Barbers Guild were relatively new to the game of Guild Ball, but each district the guild was in, were trying players out for the main team. Valerie was the newest of this team, having only played one game, which she was reluctant to play in. She said she wouldn't play again after the incident but Edge had insisted she had to play one more game. One more game to impress the Longshanks. Edge had big plans for his team, really get the Barbers on the map, or as he would say "get a slice of the pie." Edge was the one who took her in when she had nowhere to go, he hadn't said he'd figured out where she'd come from, but Valerie thought he probably had guessed. Edge was different, the only person she'd met that she didn't have to stop her self from harming, she hadn't worked out why yet. There were quite a few people int he crowd, all Local to their region, but none Valerie knew, the rest of her team were waving and shouting to their friends and family. The opposing team were doing the same, members drawn in from the local Gardeners Guild. Gardening was a trade only the wealthy could afford, so it was obvious how they had special kits made up embroidered and clean. Valerie's kit wouldn't come clean. The stain of the baker boys blood still splattered up her sleeves. The Gardeners were all glaring at her, the Baker whose blood she was sporting was the cousin of the Gardeners team captain, so she thought he wouldn't be the most easy going in this game. The gardener captain was a tall man, white, styled hair, clean shaven with a little knick just below his chin. Clearly the sign he's started shaving his own face after last weeks game. Let's open that cut up "Stop it." She said to herself, "it's just a game, no one needs to get hurt." But someone will, either us, or them. Valerie hated to admit it, but she was right. The two captains shook hands and the Gardener whispered in Edges ear. Edge, a stocky man, bald head and a thick beard, turned round, his face white and ghost like. What he heard must have chilled him deeply. The score was in favour of the Gardeners and they were outnumbering the Barbers with 6 to 4, it was just Edge, Valerie, Soap, and old barber, a veteran of the century war and Tyson, Edge's pet chihuahua. A very small animal with a styled Mohawk between his ears. As He looked ridiculous, had little impact on the game, but he was very distracting and the crowd loved him. Whilst she was looking at the miniature dog, she saw him barking at Edge, who had two Gardeners laying into him. They stepped back as he collapsed, a pile of black cloth, beard and tattoos. She saw them laughing as time seemed to slow, and squaring up to Tyson, ready to attack the mascot. Tyson! "Don't worry Valerie, we've got this" she said reassuring the voice in her head. Valerie charged the two Gardeners before they could get too close to the dog, she slit the throats of the young one in one quick flurry with her straight edge. At the same time she grabbed the ponytail of the other and dragged him to the floor then started kicking his head, turning it to a bloody mush, glistening on the grounds. The crowd went silent, clearly in shock of this display of violence. She let out a deep breath, then slowly turned to the Gardener captain, his face whiter than Edge's was at the start of the match. Valerie wasn't in control now. She flicked her straight edge, cleaning it in an instant, she'd clearly done this before the Garner worried... "Her", Longshanks said to his hooded associate. "We want her in the Barbers Guild." "But, but she's uncontrollable, unhinged, unhealthy!" "She's perfect. She's fury, rage and beauty." The associate looked across the pitch at Valerie. Her thick black hair, messy and stuck to her face in a mix of blood, saliva and sweat. "Beauty?" He questioned, "are, are we looking at the same woman?" "Just picture it, the revenue. She'll draw them in for her beauty before the match, then keep them there with her displays of violence. Perfect to elevate this start up Guild to the big leagues." Longshanks started to laugh, the only sound in the crowd of people watching Valerie sat in the middle of the pitch, stroking Tyson, both of them covered in the Gardeners teams blood. "Calm and Cool. Calm and Cool." Valerie repeated over and over to herself and the little dog.

  11. A few of us were talking and we're going to need to get some clarity on this situation as we're making our Summer Con plans. http://steamforged.com/sfg-news-blog/regional-qualifiers-gotta-catch-em-all Steamforged.com states that Texas Games Con is June 3-4, but then it calls it 'The Texas Games Con' (also known as TheGameCon) which happens in Galveston. https://thegamecon.com/ https://www.facebook.com/thegamecon/ However; Texas Games Con is also a name used by WargamesCon and that happens in Austin in August. Texas Games Con is actually WargamesCon. Also formerly, BoLS Con. The owner changed the name for 1 of the years to Texas Games Con because the Austin media outlets, i.e. News and Newspapers wouldn't print the event with the word "War" in it. He's since changed it to its original name, WargamesCon. http://www.wargamescon.com/ General Information Contact: wargamescon@gmail.com https://www.facebook.com/pg/warGamesCon Neither CON's website lists the event at all, thus further muddying the waters. Please help clarify this Steamforged and community. Thank you! Lastly, we need to know if there is a last chance qualifier at the con

  14. Hi, My name is Mikael and I'm from Quebec Canada (near Montreal). I just started playing Guild ball 2days ago using the kick off box. I played 2 vassal games before and decided to jump in the game. I played the union and the Brewers. Thought I like unions but finally I'm sticking with the Brewers and looking for way to score between two bashing sessions. Glad to meet you guys! Can't wait to hear your stories and find new tactics.
