Guild Ball

Guild Ball is the game of medieval fantasy football from Steamforged Games. The Century War has wracked the land, and all that forges the fractious nations of the new Empire together is the blood-sport of Guild Ball, brought together by the scheming Guilds. Will you play the slippery Fishermen, the arcane Alchemists, or the suspicious Union? Read some articles, listen to some podcasts, watch some videos, and maybe you’ll find out which is best for you!

Klaw Goes WTC: The Top 10 teams identified … and so my watch begins

Posted by on 4:13 am

Ladies and gentlemen, so nice of you to join me again for the bestest of yearly traditions – the WTC predictions, brought to you by last year’s WTC stars. The idea of the article is simple: I ask all teams who went 5-1 or better last year for 7 teams to go 5-1 or better this year. Very simple, very effective, always entirely correct1. Kicking off my little survey was te captain of last year’s winning team, the legendary Aaron Wale. Despite the fact he won’t be around to defend his title (boo, hiss 2), I for one really want to know what he thinks. He came up with the following baseline: Canada Moose, England Knights, England Lions, Germany Wildsau, Poland Centrum, Poland South, and USA East. His dark horse pick was Scotland Laphroaig, and he predicted 5 hermits in the winning team. At first, we thought it’d be funny to also predict the amount of conversions for said hermit, but … it’s become clear that all will be conversions anyway. Wale was really eyeing Germany Wildsau to take the trophy. I can get behind that notion, as long as they don’t run into France Obelix, that is3. I know, it’s a lame reference. Moving on to Marcin Mycek (still the only guy to have never finished outside of the top 5 at the WTC, while playing at every single one of them) – as usual, he made me wait a bit for his little list, but to keep me busy, he came up with the little side quest of naming the amount of hermits in the winning team. In the end, he came up with England Lions, England Knights, France Panoramix, Germany Wildsau, Poland South, Scotland Laphroaig and USA East. His dark horse is Japan – as first timers, they fit the profile perfectly. He answers the hermit question with 4, for obvious reasons4. Moving on to England, I talked to Pat Dunford. I must have interfaced with him wrong, because at first, the only reply I got was “hey sexy pants”, followed by silence. Despite the obvious accuracy of that statement, I needed more information. I mashed some buttons and made him cough up this list: Canada Goose, Canada Polar Bear, England Knights, England Lions, Germany Wildsau, Norway Hugin and USA East. Pat doesn’t actually look like this. Apart from not caring about the Poles, Patbot also had this little nugget of wisdom regarding USA East: If Australia can carry Tom Guan to victory, perhaps USA East can too. An interesting perspective. Dark horse: Scotland Laphroaig, and three hermits in the winning team. Mark from England Knights (who is my friend ever since the Welsh Masters5) had some quite different views: England Knights, England Lions, Germany Wildsau, Norway Munin, Poland South, Sweden 2 (Sweden Beep Boop), USA East Mark’s dark horse is Scotland Laphroaig, and 4 hermits on the winning team. We see here the first instance of anyone identifying the Swedes as a potential threat. Enter Johan Dyrlind, if just to ask what his actual team name is. Turns out it’s Lagom, which roughly translates to “just right”, applicable for situations ranging from the temperature of a sauna to the cuisson6 of a steak, and now for the composition of a team as well, I guess....

Boosted Rolls #21 – Battle at Lund, Team Tournament with England Knights

Posted by on 2:53 pm

Welcome back for Part 2 of our Battle at Lund coverage. This time we invite all the important members of England Knights (because who cares who won Welsh Masters but didn’t fly to Sweden?) to walk us through how to win a 5 man team tournament. We thought that might be somehow relevant at the moment. However, it seems to largely involve a handy Dane, lots of bois and rolling dice one at a time. Madness or Mayhem? We will let you be the judge. Podcast: Play in new window | Download (Duration: 2:03:35 — 169.7MB)Subscribe: Android |...
