[Chaos] CitOW Game 9 - Victory for Slaanesh!

Welcome to Chaos in the Old World, Fantasy Flight Games' boardgame take at Games Workshop's famous fantasy IP. In this game, players take the role of one of the four Ruinous Powers of the universe. Speaking of which, I believe this calls for some introductions.

Khorne
Khorne loves long walks on the battlefield and nights alone with the recently deceased. He enjoys handywork, and has even so constructed a throne for himself from nothing but the skulls of the living. He's always on the lookout for new blood - in the most literal sense possible - earning him the title of "The Blood God." If Khorne were a flavor of ice cream, he would be Berserk Banana.

Nurgle
The other white meat! Or in this case, possibly white pus. Nurgle, now with 300% more pestilence! This is Great Unclean One with the new Nurgle Treatment, and you won't believe it! Have you ever been traveling around, and all of a sudden you wish you had brought your horrific ailments with you? But how are you going to fit it all in your bags? Well that's easy with the new Nurgle (or as we should say, the Old Nurgle)! Watch as it spreads the epidemic over the entire countryside as you pass. And if you order now, we'll throw in this free plaguebearer. Call now!

Tzeentch
Spoiler:

Slaanesh
"Working for Khorne? It's ok, I guess, but I worry about my future prospects. You know how I'm probably going to die? Not enough blood left in my neck. You know how those Slaanesh dudes over there are probably going to die? Too many orgasms.
You can see my consternation." - Khorne Thrall

As the Prince of Pain and Pleasure, some might say that Slaanesh 'goes both ways.' His followers don't quite have a 'lust for battle,' but enjoy the 'corruption' of the aristocracy. He finds subtle usurping 'invigorating,' and sometimes even so much that he just has to release his 'keeper of secrets.'

----

This will be a Play-By-Post game of Chaos in the Old World. It will give priority to those who have not yet played the game, but if you have played, please feel free to sign up. I may purposefully include a veteran in the game to keep it moving more smoothly, for instance.

Please, sign up, announce interest, and declare which Ruinous Power you'd prefer to play.

    HOW TO MAKE A BATTLE ROLL:
    Delmain wrote: »
    Hey guys, helpful IC tidbit here.
    Roll Xd6.hitsopen(4,6). It'll reroll 6s and then count all the dice 4 and above and give you a convenient number of hits.

    Alternatively, you can make battle rolls via orokos (thanks, Infidel!)
    Delmain wrote: »
    Use Xd6o6h4.

    o is for Open, it rolls them over and over until you get a not-6. e6 just rerolls 6s once, even if another 6 comes up.

    Battle dice probabilities:
    MrBlarney wrote: »
    I made a table for expected results up to 6 battle dice. Cells without values have probabilities below 0.1%. There is some rounding, so the values won't be exact, but they'll be close enough for most purposes.

    Darian has a held spot for his role as host of six games. I also have a list of previous sign-ups, so if you haven't gotten to play you're probably on the list. However, recruiting is open and will be randomized!

    I do believe I'd prefer Khorne or Nurgle at this point.

    I'd prefer Khorne or Nurgle as well, but I'm flexible. I also promise not to be as stupid as in our last game.

    Read through and watched a few games so far, so I think I have an idea of how to play and strategy.
    Slaanesh, Khorne, Tzeentch, Nurgle in that order, but any is fine.

    One thing I haven't understood is what regions count as being adjacent to each other? Like, from the maps it looks like Estalia is adjacent to only Brettonia and Tilea, but I've seen moves like summoning from Estalia to Empire or Badlands.

    I think I can help there- You can move to any region that is adjacent to one of your figures.

    So you can move from one end of the map to the other, so long as you have a figure adjacent to (or in) the region you're moving to. Or just adjacent to the one your figure is moving from.

    I had trouble with that too, at first. There's only two rules to follow with regards to summoning;

    1) You can only summon figures to regions you already have figures in or regions adjacent to those you have figures in.
    2) Move and Summon are interchangeable for basically all purposes.

    So if you only have a figure in Estalia, you can only summon figures there or Bretonnia or Tilea. But if you have a figure in Estalia and another in Norsca, you can move the figure from Estalia to Norsca, or vice versa, or Estalia to Troll Country, etc etc.

    OK, but to get the figures in both Estalia and Norsca in the first place, you'd need either a Teleport or some link between the two, correct? You couldn't just turn 1 summon Estalia, turn 2 summon Norsca? Thus it makes sense to begin summoning in places like Border Princes or Brettonia, since they're most connected?

    All of this depends on strategy, and which god you are.

    By the end of the game, you'll likely have figures all over the map. How quickly you get there is up to you.

    Never played but I'm into 40k stuff so I have a concept for the gods. I've skimmed the rules and I'll look at older games to get a feel for it.

    Order of preference is Tzeentch, Khorne, Nurgle, Slaanesh

    Yeah... I'd be tempted to run with all new people, but Darian deserves a spot so that throws that off. If anyone else starts hosting, they should do newbies-only signups.

    As stated above, I can sit this one out if we want to run a newb game. I get to play this every couple of weeks on Friday night, so I'll be okay. :)

    Also, I think Nought said he might be able to start up a third concurrent game, so you could pass the failed sign-ups on to him.

    I'd be willing to put some time and effort into learning how to run a game for our European brethren. I'd just need somebody to point me towards wherever I can educate myself on the matter.

    I kid. I kid.

    It's really simple. If you've ever worked with layers in Gimp and spreadsheets in Google Docs, you're 100% of the way there. If you haven't, it takes a few hours of fiddling.

    If you PM me an e-mail address I'll send you the Gimp file and share the docs from an old game.
