Blood Bowl Wiki

The Blood Bowl Universe

Although the Blood Bowl Universe may seem to take place in the Warhammer Fantasy Universe due to its identical maps and place names, the Blood Bowl Universe is an alternate universe of Warhammer Fantasy. Therefore, though country, province, and city names may be the same, the history is quite different.
