this post will explain how to import your tabletop league teams on to Fumbbl in times of social distancing (and for other occasions!).
The first thing you will need is a “skill ruleset”. You can use my one (ruleset 1206) or you can make your own using this link. There is a huge amount of variety available within rulesets, so it is definitely worth making your own. If you do choose to use mine, note that it:
- uses Spiralling Expenses not Expensive Mistakes
- allows Piling On without a Reroll
When you create your ruleset, you will want to make the starting TV large (I went for 5,000,000) so that people can buy everything they currently have. The admin can then reduce the TV as needed. Choose the name of the ruleset carefully, as you can’t change it later!
There are 5 pages of options in the ruleset options, which are mostly self explanatory. “Petty cash adds to TV” means CRP inducements. You will need to add Brets and Khorne into the rosters if you want to use them. Do this by choosing custom “yes” and then save, and then choosing Add Roster on the bottom right. The versions marked NAFC are the official ones.
While you are creating the ruleset, look in the url for the number of it and make a note.
After you have a ruleset, you should create a League. On your homepage, click Create a New Group on the bottom right.
- Change the Group Type to League
- Change ruleset ID to the ID of your ruleset
- Change status to recruiting
Fill in the rest of fields as required.
Once you have created your league, you should have something like this:
Provide this page to your league chums, and get them to click on Create team for this league, then buy everything they have in their tabletop team (players, FF, goods, rerolls).
Once they have done that, as league admin you can go to the team, and adjust anything that is in red by clicking on it. To adjust FF or Treasury, this will be through the main team list. To adjust player skills etc you click on the player first, then click on the SPPs and award the correct number of SPPs.
You then Edit skills to give the correct skills. You can also click on the Injuries box and can award injuries to the player.
Once the teams are made, the teams can play each other by clicking play next to the team and using the name of the game as previously decided between the teams.
Thanks for reading, hope all is clear – there may be a video tutorial later, let me know if I’ve missed any steps!
