Inhabiting the cold wastelands of Norsca, the Norse enjoy Blood Bowl, because it means they get paid to beat each other up, and sometimes get paid to leave Norsca for somewhere warmer and friendlier... and beat up the locals there. Living so close to the Chaos Wastes, the Norse have a fairly liberal attitude towards "gifts from the gods" and many teams feature mates of theirs who turn into wolves at the full moon and are renowned for their ferocious play. They've also been known to corral local Yetis and Snow Trolls into playing for them on the pitch, with mixed results.
Norse teams are characterized by most of their players starting with the Block skill. This makes them pretty good out-of-the-box and one of the more reliable teams for the blocking game. They have some great players who come with Frenzy, meaning they can really open up holes in the defense and get a lot of knockdowns.
The downside for Norse is their fairly low armor values. While they tend to get knocked down less on the whole, they will break more often when they go down. The teams also have no dedicated Catachers and average Agility isn't great for passing. The amount of Frenzy on the team can also be tricky to handle, having players dragged out of position or making dice rolls you would rather avoid.
- Most Players have Block
- Lots of Frenzy
- Low Armor

The league has so far seen two Norse teams. Rampage! were a dominant force in the first season and remained highly competitive until they were orphaned in Season III. Nature's Guardians succeeded them and hired a number of retired Rampage! players. They were orphaned in short order but were nevertheless a thorn in the side of several teams during Season IV.
