    I looked in the BB Competition Rules but couldn't find a straight answer, and though it doesn't come up very often in-game, I thought it'd be fun to know:

    Can assists raise a player's ST above the maximum of 10 during a block?

    For example: Will my Treeman (ST 6) with five assists reach ST 11 in order to get three block dice against say, a Troll?

    Of course You can. Why not? The "maximum of 10" rule only applies to players' natural stats.

    Bonus info - Maximum strenght of any player in the game would be 9 and that would be one heck of a deathroller:powdodge:

    Yeah I would, just for the sheer fun of it - I do like crazy builds. I think he would cost 270k with +2 ST:p

    Just need to wait for Underworld to get a fanatic with mutation access. Then it would be 7 +st +st Horns. Even though it would never blitz because it can only make a move action.

    Cancel my thread.

    But now I have hijacked it, think a about a Underworld Fanatic, with tentacles, stand firm and block. Talk about stopping any cage :)

    Thanks, I figured as much, but I was unsure because of how it is worded in the BBCR:

    "These extra players add +1 to the Strength of the player they are assisting."
    Assisting a block, pg. 21

    "No characteristic may ever be increased by more than 2 points over its starting value or to a value greater than 10."
    Imporvement rolls, pg. 26

    I realize how dumb it was now, however, since if it worked in this way, no player would ever be able to get more than two assists on a block.

    I kinda like the discussion the thread sparked though, and now I kinda want to grind a Dwarf team with a Death Roller on BBLE :)

    You are probably right, but they do eat a lot of mushrooms down there. It was only some wishful dreaming :)
