SQL 2018 - Week 2 - Quidditch Fouls

Post by Prof. Tarma Amelia Black » Mon Jul 16, 2018 12:12 am

Again referring to Quidditch Through the Ages by Kennilworthy Whisp, there is a fascinating paragraph which talks about fouls and our first ever World Cup.
Rules are of course "made to be broken". Seven hundred Quidditch fouls are listed in the Department of Magical Games and Sports records, and all of them are known to have occurred during the final of the first ever World Cup in 1493.The full list of these fouls, however, has never been made available to the wizarding public. It is the Department's view that witches and wizards who see the list "might get ideas."
Some of the fouls known to have occurred during that game are attempted decapitation with a broadsword, turning a Chaser into a polecat, letting loose a hundred blood-sucking vampire bats, setting fire to an opponent's broom tail, attacking an opponents's broom with a club, and attacking an opponent with an axe. Those, along with blagging, blatching, blurting, bumphing, cobbing, flacking, haversacking, quaffle-pocking, snitchnip and stooging, only make up a small number of the 700 Quidditch fouls!

Your task, should you accept it, is to come up with another foul than those listed above. What is the name of the foul (the correct Quidditch term), to whom does it apply and what is the description? Please include an illustration of this foul. Stick figures are perfectly acceptable. Yes, please do make sure your foul is HOL appropriate!

Post your Quidditch foul and picture in here (be sure the graphic is a maximum 600 x 600 size). Have this posted within a week and earn 5 Team Points for your Team. If you post after that date, you will earn 3 Team Points. Please keep in mind that all activities are due by August 20th.

Note: Again, should you rely on assistive technology or have other any needs that should be taken into account to complete this task, please send an HOL Forum PM to me, explaining which task it is, and I'll provide an alternative task for you.

Gaffing can only be committed by the home team. This foul consists of shrinking the scoring hoops that your team is defending (i.e. the hoops the other team is trying to score on) before the match so that they are smaller than the Quaffle. Because the Quaffle does not fit into a gaffed hoop, it is impossible to throw the Quaffle through such a hoop to score!

Snitch hallucination spell is intermediate spell that is known as a foul and is very often used. It is usable only on the seeker, as it does not have wanted effect on other players, as they are not searching for the snitch. It effect's seekers brain and make seeker see the snitch every minute at least once, altough it is only hallucination. So the seeker of opponent's team has full hands with trying to catch imaginary snitch and sometimes even disturb his owb team with flying all over the ground. Hallucination spell is not so easy to find, because it is accepted into brain only as a change of thinking, so it is impossible to know if it was that spell that was used.

Graphic shows a broomstick of the 1300s - obviously hand made and not the sleek and shiny broomsticks we have today. The ash broom tail, or brush, appears to have fresh green growth coming out from the twigs.
The name of the Quidditch foul is Pullulanto, taken from the latin pullulant plantae of burgeoning new plant growth. When this foul is utilized, it causes the broom not only to lose velocity but also severely affects its maneuverability and general ability to stay levitated. If the caster of the foul is a puissant witch, the broom handle also might sprout new growth.

Ghosting is a foul committed by any player, trainer, substitute, official or audience. It involves casting Disillusionment Charm on the Golden Snitch, rendering it invisible to Seekers. The first and the only occurrence of the foul happened in the match between Brazil and Argentina, in quarter-finals of 1878 Quidditch World Cup. Argentinian Seeker was seriously injured and the team was dependant on Chasers scoring the difference of 150 points in order to win. Argentinian Beater spotted the Snitch and cast Disillusionment Charm on the Snitch, which made it impossible for Brazilian Seeker to find it. The terrible illustration shows Argentinian Beater casting the spell on the Snitch.

"Soloculus" (Sole-ock-you-luss)

The act of using an ordinary object, like a mirror, to shine sunlight into the eyes of someone carrying the quaffle. Note, this only counts as a foul if they are carrying the quaffle. Otherwise, it's just rude and unsportsmanlike!

Thwacking is when a beater intentionally extends his or her bat to try to block or hit an incoming chaser instead of manipulating the bludger for blocking purposes. It is generally only given when the bludger is not in the area and there can be no mistaken intent.

Asamana is a foul committed by one of the competing teams towards their opponent's team. This foul affects all players, but they are mostly happening to chasers and beaters. This foul happens when someone creates stormy weather that weirdly only seems to be affecting their opponents. For example when a chaser tries to score a goal, they suddenly get hit by a lightning! The storm can come in many forms, from hurricane, thunder, to heavy rain that would lower the visibility of the opponent. Some cheating teams would try to use this foul when they're playing under bad weather because it's easier to hide the foul, but sometimes it can also happens during bright sunny day!

Switching is a foul that can be committed by all players and is similar to Snitchnip. It is called when a player performs a task that is not under the purview of his or her position. Beater scores or keeps a goal, Keeper hits a Bludger, Seeker takes the Quaffle and scores, and so on. Some actions are permitted, such as a Chaser catching a Quaffle inside the scoring area if a Keeper is incapacitated, but only under special and very strict circumstances.

Tinning occurs when the Beaters deliberately hit the Bludgers at the hoops continuously. The foul originated when hoops were made of tin, which could be bent fairly easily by a well hit Bludger. At first, Beaters would try to change the shape of their own team's hoops or move the hoops closer together to make their Keeper's job easier. Soon, they discovered that they could hit Bludgers at their opponents' hoops and spread them out. There was also the added benefit of annoying the opposing Keeper with the metal vibrations.
