[Chaos] CitOW game 26 - the game is afoot

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.

Holofernes as 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.

lodwilk as 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!

susan as Tzeentch
Spoiler:

Nought as 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.

Sign ups are being taken from the discussion/general sign up thread. Spots will be offered to the top three players on the main list and the top host.

    Okay, that made me double-check my invite PM. Invites are out to: Holofernes, lodwilk, Nought, susan

    Should any of them be unable to join us, though, Spawnbroker is next up to clear the newb list. Given the late Thursday evening notice, they've got until noon EST Monday to confirm. Hopefully we'll get this started sooner than that, though.

    You have each been added to the game on handtracker; go ahead and draw 3 cards to your hand to start the game.

    Looks good, Tzeentch.

    You should each now have access to your google-doc as well as the handtracker.

    Round 1, Old World phase:

    The residents of the Old World begin to flee their homes as omens of doom are spotted throughout the land...

    Mass Exodus
    Place one Peasant token in every region except Norsca, Kislev, and the Badlands.
    Discard this card instead of adding it to the Old World track.

    citowg26r10.gif


    Round 1, Draw phase:

    Tzeentch may discard one card before drawing up to 5. The rest of you can go ahead and draw your full hand of five. Once everyone has drawn their cards, Khorne will be active to begin the initial summoning phase.

    Discard the Meddling of Skaven - 1 - When you play this card, choose an opponent with figures in this region. That player must discard two Chaos cards from their hand.

    When you discard or play a card, link the action from handtracker and name the card. No need to continue to post the full text of the card here, unless you want to.

    I think I have drawn three cards in the correct manner. Is each draw supposed to be a separate action?

  • DarianDarian Registered User regular
    edited September 2010
    Yep; you can draw two more, now. We've made it to the draw phase.

    Ah, Nought, we meet again my Slaaneshi [strike]fiend[/strike] friend. May this battle be slightly more satisfying than the last couple...

    Also, with this setup, I think it's safe to say that the entire course of this game will be determined by where AND when Khorne plays his first unit. With all courses leading to my victory, of course.

    Muwahahahahahahahahah!

    My dear susan, I'm looking forward the pleasurable torment that is you company, and titillating lodwilks boils will be excruciating fun.

    Going by past game winners, I guess this is really my game to loose. I'm really spilt. I want Khorne and Tzeentch to get some wins, but I want to win now dammit :) So close last game.

    edit:

    I meant past winners as in Gods. Not saying I'm a great player, since there really isn't any basis fore me to state that.
