The Candian Open
In the Great White North there comes a time one a year when the strongest of warriors of the land and beyond are drawn to a remote northern town. This pilgrimage has gone on for centuries and has always resulted in two days of mass open combat between the pilgrims; much to the chagrin of the town's people. The climax of this spectacle occurred on the second day when a pillar of light shown upon a single combatant who would than be hailed as the Champion. And as quickly as the light appeared from the heavens it returned and the pilgrims dispersed to return to their own lands. The locals gave a name to this event, Chinook.
Many of the great sages pondered the purpose of this yearly event and more importantly which God ruled over it. The combat lent itself to be attributed to the Gods of War, the random nature and destruction was said to be the work of the Gods of Chaos, and the correlations continued for years. One thing that has been agreed upon was that at some point Nuffle gained control once it was observed that the massed combat was slowly transmuting into something that resembled an organized game of Blood Bowl.
Now a half century later, there is no denying that Nuffle is behind this yearly pilgrimage as established Blood Bowl teams have replaced the warriors. With this turn of events the locals say an opportunity to cash in on this yearly influx of Blood Bowlers and set forth to establish what is now commonly known as the Canadian Open.
