GET YER GROTZ ON!

v1.0 Released: 18th June 2005

By Ian "Titler" Hodgkinson

(SCAR Code by Dyeslon & FinalDeath)


___________________________________________

INSTALLATION:

Just run the installer. It'll do everything for yer. Cuz it's smart like dat, see?

Be aware that this map uses the Ork Fighta Bomba model, which causes problems with shadows. Best switch shadows off if yer usin' dem.

Bear in mind that extensive playtesting may result in changes being made at a later date: I make no guarantee this will be the last version released.

INTRODUCTION

"*thwack*
*thwack*
*thwack*

Aboard the recently renamed and Kustomized Space Hulk, "Da Big Wanderin' Waaagh!", Ugluk was sat at his console on the bridge, and was getting angry. He was supposed to be working on the planz which would allow them to navigate the warp, and SOMEONE was kickin' his chair.

*thwack*
*thw...*

"Right!" spat Ugluk, spinning around, "You zoggin well better stop dat, or..." and then he froze in horror, as he saw that it was Warboss Nazgrub Da Butcher, Slayer Of Fousands, who was currently also Kicker Of Chairs. Nazgrub, the Ork who was built like 3 kanz welded together. "Oh Mork's droppingz!" thought Ugluk "I'z for it now". Nazgrub paused, mid boot, and grinned evilly at him... then he said slowly "Or wot, den?". Behind him, Ugluk could see Nazgrub's retinue of Nobz pause at their various tasks, recognizing entertainment was clearly approaching. Ugluk knew all about Orky entertainment, and as far as he was concerned, it was when someone else got a bootin', not him... but for the moment his noggin was overwhelmed by fear that he'd be lucky to get out of this with all his own teef.
"Well, I, er... da fing iz... " Ugluk stuttered.
Nazgrub grinned again "Ya know, if we were at da Waaagh already, I could be stompin' some 'oomies. But we ain't, fer some reason. So wot else iz I supposed ta do den? Can't be a Warboss without givin' somethink a kicking"
But then, the kno-wotz which had made Ugluk the chief Mekanik came to his rescue once more; "Tell yer wot boss, I hear dey've turned one o'da old engine rooms into a fightin' pit, and tonight'z Grot night. It'z always funny ta watch runtz chop each other up... me mate Appultize tells me he never laughed as 'ard as ee did when he saw one runt fall into da machinery, and cover the audience with flyin' limbs. So why don't I treat ya ta a seat dere, wot with ya bein' obviously bored, an' it bein' all my fault, yer?"
For a moment, it looked like Nazgrub wouldn't go for this sneaky distraction... "Weeeelll, I dunno. Dat does sound like fun, but runtz is runtz, and I was feelin' up for seein' some Boyz get duffed over..." Desperately trying to keep cool, Ugluk quickly talked on before Nazgrub could finish his point; "Dat'z lucky den, cuz on Grotz night, da slavedrivers goes in there with dere grotz... so yer'll get to see dem torn apart by hordes of runtz. It's dead good, I promise!"
"Hmmm, ok den. And yer gonna pay fer it, yer sayz?" Ugluk silently breathed a sigh of relief. "Yer boss, I'll pay for yer. My pleasure." It looked like he'd gotten away with cheekin' da boss without too many bad consequences, not something many had done. "Right!" roared Nazgrub "Hear dat ladz?! We'z all off to da runt fight!" Keep quiet, keep quiet, thought Ugluk. It's only money, that's all. Better than a kicking. "Now den', let's just get yer money out, shall we? Grab 'im, ladz!" "Arrrgh, no boss, I dun't want to pay with those teef... no, I... arrrrggGGGGGHHH!"

GAMEPLAY:

This map is for 2 - 8 players. You cannot build ANYTHING: This is deliberate. It's just you, 60 Grotz, and 3 Mad Dokz (Slavedriverz), against the rampagin' runtz of everyone else. Play as teams or free for all, it doesn't matter... just start juicin' dem small buggers, and GET YER GROTZ ON!

AI players are not supported, as they don't use Gretchin aggressively, only the Mad Doks. Best find some more 'oomies, eh?
