THE 7 TRIALS OF CHIP
Before each game the player choses one player on the oppositions team and they then roll on the below table and apply the result to the selected player for the duration of the match. The player chosen does not have to be on the table
The trials of running a FLGS is myriad and every frustrating, for ever 100 satisfied customers there is one who needs 13 different shades of black or some obscure Japanese card game released in the 1970’s. The results below reflect some the challenges Chip navigates on a daily basis, you only have to put up with for 12 rounds of Bloodbowl!
So quit your moaning and cowboy up, last one to roll a GFI is a Snotling’s loincloth…
1 - Outraged at yet another customer who doesn’t know their own address chip erupts into a fit of rage - Player gains the Frenzy skill
2 - “Who put that bloody box there!?’ Navigating the Incom HQ with its 7 different floor levels is still a challenge for our hero - Player gains -1MV
3 - School night drinking is never big or clever but it is fun! However it also leaves Chip feeling a touch delicate - Player gains -1AV
4 - The week prior to a new release is more a case of keeping people in line and away from the new shiny toys until the correct day, Chip is a master at fending off these plastic crack fiends - Player gains the Fend skill
5 - Sometimes Chip drives but sometimes he cycles, luckily for you today is a cycling day - Player gains +1MV
6 - After 56 years Chip finally gets a day off but has to Wrestle Mrs Chip (who is lovely we hasten to add) for the TV controller. Despite never winning he is getting better and only cry 1/4 of the time - Player gains the Wrestle skill
7- On the final day of his long week Chip gets an extra spring in his step - Players gains +1 Agi
8- Despite mainly living on a diet of pot noddles and those weird trail mix bags (I stand buy this comment, its basically rabbit food) Chip is fond of a good steak, Beef, Grox or Squid he doesn’t care - Player gains +1 str

Vampire, Ogres and Chaos teams are exempt from this rule.
