[Chaos] CitOW Game 13 - Witch Hunters join the battle!

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.

There are loads of previous games you can use to nail down your understanding of the rules and strategy. See the stickied PBP thread for a list.

    The name of this game: favoritism! In all seriousness: due to their role in bringing many delightful games of CitOW your way, Mordenthral and Darian have guaranteed spots in this game. If they have god preferences they should post them now.

    The last two spots are open to regular sign-ups.

    !sign up but only if I don't get into game 12. Any god is fine.

    I am in Copenhagen which is currently GMT plus 2 due to daylight savings, soon plus one. But my sleep schedule is quite random anyway.

    Ooh, a battle of hosts! Damn, I need to do the following;

    A) Pick up a physical copy of the game
    B) Host a game for Darian, Modrenthal and Admanb

    But until I do that, I'll sign up for this one, and any god will do.

    If I don't make into Game 12 I'd like to be in consideration for this one.
    I have been meaning to give this a try.

    Nurgle > Tzeentch > Slaanesh > Khorne

    I am terrible at strategy games but I still enjoy them, so including me should be fun for the other three players!

    My preference is Nurgle, thanks. I'd like to try and boost his win ratio. :winky:

    Edit: And no, I will not be trying for a Nurgle dial victory. :D

    It'd probably be fair to say that if I get picked for game 12, I wouldn't mind stepping aside for this game.

    If I said that 8-)

    I assure you no one who gets picked for game 12 will be picked for game 13.

    Which actually means I should add an addendum: don't hesitate to sign-up for both games. It's not rude and it's not flooding the pool.

    I would imagine it's actually helpful; aren't you guys keeping a list of sign-up-ees around?

    I've (at least) stopped using the old sign-ups, recently. Just taking people that continue to show interest.

    I'm gonna host one of these eventually, but I'm finding that I'm reasonably retarded when attempting to learn GIMP. One of these months...

    Sign up!. Any god is fine. My physical copy will also be arriving Thursday if I need anything from that.

    I'm Pacific Time. If it matters and if the game lasts that long, the last week of April my availability will probably diminish greatly as my parents will be here and I'll be taking them around, but I expect to still be able to make at least 1 post a day.

    And we're off. Our players are a helpfully non-picky group:

    Mordenthral - Nurgle
    Darian - *
    Shushnik - *
    Dracil - Khorne

    Which means the gods will go to first-come, first-serve. Post who you want! If I don't have choices by the time I get back from the FLGS this evening I'll randomize the rest.

    Replace cactus with a pike long enough to go through their skull and that's mine.
