[Chaos] CitOW Game 16 - Warpstone from the sky heralds the first scouts of Chaos

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.

    !sign up. I've played one game recently.

    Anyone except Slaanesh will do. I hope it's ok to sign up for two games at once?

    Yep. You'll be taken out if you get into one.

    btw, I don't think I said it anywhere, but like the previous games you're just signing up for a lotto ticket. The players will be determined randomly, and gods based on preferences.

    I'll make an attempt to get into this one. I haven't played before, but I've looked over the rules a little.

    As for god, I would prefer Nurgle, and after that no preference.

    Be excellent to each other you stupid cunts.

    It almost seems like we should have a CitOW signup common thread- if you want to play, you sign up there, and a host can just grab your name from the list... if you can't play, there are other names there.

    Regardless, I also sign up here.

    Tzeentch > Slaanesh > Nurgle > Khorne

    An interesting idea, El Skid. It wouldn't be practical for the phallas, since they need so many players, but for this it might work out nicely.

    For me anyway, having to sign up in each thread is slightly painful.

    On the other hand, it might not work so well for people who don't frequent the forums as much as I do- if a month goes by and a lurker signed up once and promptly stopped visiting the forums because he didn't get into a few games, that might cause the host some difficulties.

    Nurgle is my preference (he needs more wins!), but anything is fine.

    This is why I/we've been doing it the way we have. I kept a general sign-up list for a while, copying it over from each spreadsheet to the next, but after a while dropped that list to start fresh. People's availability changes over time, so people who would be ready and able to play in a game this month might not be next month. Doing it this way also encourages everyone who wants to play to follow all the games (since you'll have posted in the thread and be subscribed), so hopefully that will improve our quality of play over time.
    If you all would rather do a common sign-up thread, though, we can.
    In that case, would you rather we just take the top four people from the list each time and work our way down, so everyone gets a chance, or keep randomly choosing from the signups? (Note: my "random" choice gives extra rolls to people who haven't played any yet, which is how you end up with things like my current player list.)

    Also, sign up, no preferences for gods; no special dispensation requested, since I was just able to play in one.

    I have great plans for these mortals. Though my worshippers may be fewer than Slaanesh, they hold a far greater power at their hands combined. Great wizards, scholars and keen political minds that seek to change their world for the better have come to me for answers, for no small price.

    Do not get too comfortable. Those you see as coincidences could be the footwork for my plans, or not. If you seek knowledge, you need only to ask.


    Of course, I could be lying.

    Beginning of Round 1

    The invasion of the Old World is heralded with a Warpstone Discovery!

    Place two Warpstone tokens in any one region

    In the end phase when Old World cards are resolved, any player with at least one follower in any region containing at least one Warpstone token draws a Chaos card.
    (FAQ: Max one card per player)


    CitOW-g16-r0-0.gif

    Nurgle chooses where to place the two Warpstone, then Tzeentch can choose whether or not he discards a card, at which point I'll update his hand. Khorne will start us from there.

    No... but you are supposed to tell him whether you want to discard one of those three before drawing the rest.

    So... yes?
