A pretty lady asked me to relay these...

Jugga – The Sport of Kings

Teams: There are two teams, each of seven players.

Thirds: There are three thirds, each of ten minutes play. These are separated by intervals of five minutes.

The Umpire: There is a umpire. He is responsible for adjudicating, applying the rules, Calling Points and Restarting play and ensuring the smooth running of the game.

Infractions: The umpire should punish infractions, like deliberate contact with the Skull by a player who is not a Quick, by removing the offending player from play for the duration of the Point. More severe infractions may result in the player being removed from play for the remainder of the Third, Game or Season. The use of magic to affect the outcome of the game is considered a serious infraction of the rules, as is deliberately wounding a player.

The Pitch: The Pitch is an area between two Goals, usually buckets although they may be baskets, pits or poles. It is not permitted to move the goals.

The Skull, and Points: A skull is provided. The teams attempt to win Points by placing the skull, through legal means, into the opposing team's goal. The period of time between a Restart and the scoring of a goal, or the arrival at a condition where a goal can no longer be scored, is also referred to as a Point.

Winning: At the end of the final third, the team who has Won the most Points is the winner of the game. If both teams have won an equal number of points, the game is a Draw. In this case the game will continue until the next point.

Restarts: Initially the game is begun by the Umpire calling both teams to their baselines, and throwing the skull up into the air between the two. As soon as the skull leaves the referee's hand the first Point has begun, and the teams may leave their baselines. The Point is played until either team scores (who are said to have Won The Point) or neither team is able to score a goal (when the Point is said to have Been Drawn). When either of these conditions occur, the umpire Calls The Point. Fallen teammates rejoin their comrades and the teams return to their baselines to await the Restart and the beginning of play for the next Point.

ADDITIONAL RULES
If a player leaves the bounds of the pitch, he must fall and take no further part in the current Point. If the Skull leaves the pitch, the umpire should call a halt to play, asking the players to remain where they stand. He should then return the skull to play as near to the point where it left the pitch as possible. As soon as the skull leaves the umpire's hand, play resumes. Unlike a Restart, fallen players do not rejoin their teams.

Weapons: Jugga is often played with steel weapons. It is expected that players pull their blow so to not damage the other players (it is assumed that all players on the pitch are using the “NO DAMAGE†call unless they call otherwise)

Positions: Each Jugger team must contain: one Quick, two Sticks, two Blocks and two Blades.

The Quick: The Quick is the only member of either team allowed to move the Skull, whether by kicking, throwing, picking up or carrying. He is unarmed. If a team’s Quick falls, they can no longer win the Point. If both teams' Quicks fall, neither can Win the Point, and the Umpire should Call the Point Drawn.

The Sticks: The Sticks are each armed with a long weapon - traditionally a six foot stave. The Blocks: The Blocks each carry a shield. They have no weapons and may not strike opponents with the shield. A Block may ignore the first two hits upon him in any given Point; that is, he must only fall after being struck for the third time.
The Blades: The Blades each carry a light weapon, no longer than three and a half feet in length.

Substitutions: Any members of the team may be removed and replaced from any position during an Interval between Thirds. No players may change positions during a Third, except at the Umpire's discretion. It is usually considered sporting to allow a team to replace an injured, discomfited or exhausted player without complaint.

I have no doubt that if there is sufficient demand, the Guild will repeat the Workshop, and that if there is not they will arrange for smaller scale tuition.

Ah'm told each faction has been asked to put someone forward - more than that, no idea!
