Coach Kruzzlak's Guide to Sports


10 Unique Sports Game Encounters to Thrill and Challenge Your Players!

You don't have to be a "sports person" to enjoy these new d&d sports

Coach Kruzzlak the orc is here to school you in the most harrowing challenges imaginable. Forget trap-riddled dungeons and ancient dragons, because your heroes haven't sweat until they've proven themselves in the field of organized sports.

Each sport in Coach Kruzzlak's Guide to Sports can be inserted into any game and has its own unique origin, easy-to-understand ruleset, and simple-but-effective mechanics for challenging your players with contests they'll never expect and will never forget.

Don't just roll athletics checks! Treat your players to gamplay that is complex, varied, designed to utilize a variety of skills, and offer as much strategic gameplay as they do roleplaying fun.

As a bonus, four unique player backgrounds are included: 1. Jock 2. Coach 3. Fanatic 4. Bookie

The ten fantasically fun sports are:

1. Celestial Rings: A sport where two teams try and bounce a rubber ball through a set of high-mounted rings to score points without using their hands or feet. The team falling behind in points is able to activate celestial levitation to temporarily give their team an edge.

2. Dragon Brawl: Not a game for weaklings, two teams fight over an egg-shaped leather ball and try and carry it across the field and through their goal posts. Good luck trying without getting tackled, though.

3. Elegantics: A contest of athletic, acrobatic, and magical performance. Impress the judges to earn a high score, but only the riskiest and most difficult routines will do the trick.

4. Free Fishing: A swimming sport where two teams try and catch a live fish before the other team. It's far easier said than done, though, and it will require skill, teamwork, and swimming speed of course.

5. Jousting: A classic sport of mounted valor, two riders try and knock each other off their mounts with long lances. However, don't expect things to be that straightforward, or for each rider to be on a horse either.

6. Magic Flag: A sport of capture the flag where the flag is a suit of mechanized armor and each team is equipped with special spell wands. Only magic is permitted, but anything else goes.

7. MMC: Standing for "mixed martial combat" this sport involves two combatants in a ring wrestling and striking for victory. Weapons and magic are forbidden, and while the fighting is fierce, the rules keep each fighter alive. 

8. Power Pong: Two players armed with special rackets bounce an explosive ball back-and-forth in dangerous volleys. The winner gets the ball to explode on the opponent's side of the court, but this game can be unpredictable.

9. Race-a-thon: A diabolocially challenging foot race (or mounted race) involving flats, uphills, and obstacles designed to trip up racers. Speed, stamina, and fast reflexes are a must.

10. ThwackerHit balls with a bat to score ho hums, doozies, or even the rare thwacker that goes sailing over the horizon. This sport pits the pitcher against the batter, and two teams pitting their skills against each other.

Rules Edition(s)
Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
