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.

admanb 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.

Mordenthral 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!

Nought as Tzeentch
Spoiler:

Darian 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.

This standard game will take the four hosts as players from the signup list. Should any player not accept the position by Wednesday evening, I'll continue down the regular sign-up list until we have four players.

    For Chaos Lord choices, should we go random, consensus or first-come-first-served?

    No real preference for me; random is fine.

    Random results -

    admanb as Khorne
    Mordenthral as Nurgle
    Nought as Tzeentch
    Darian as Slaanesh

    Both IC and Orokos have CitOW game 30 started.
    You may draw your 3 starting cards.

    Round 1, Old World phase:

    Dwarf Trollslayers

    Place one Hero token in each of Norsca and Kislev, or place one Hero token in each of Troll Country and The Empire. - In the end phase when Old World cards are resolved, the player with the smallest Threat score places an additional Hero token in any region where there is already a Hero token.

    Nurgle to place the additional two Heroes before he draws his 2 Chaos cards.

    game0030state01.png

    Round 1, Draw phase

    Khorne: draw 2; 5 in hand, 19 remaining in deck
    Nurgle: draw 2; 5 in hand, 19 remaining in deck
    Tzeentch: may choose to discard before drawing to five; either 18 or 19 cards remaining in deck
    Slaanesh: draw 2; 5 in hand, 19 remaining in deck

    His choices were either:
    * Troll Country (which already has a Noble) and the Empire
    * Norsca and Kislev

    If he'd gone with the second, then I'd have appropriate tokens in Norsca, Troll Country, and Kislev to start the round.

    What's to be creeped out about. It's the least racially offensive mascot ever!

    (One of my friends hates to read my posts because of it. :) Thinking about changing it, but I feel that would be giving in to pressure.)

    Cards? Where we're going we don't need cards.

    Play The Meddling of Skaven in Norsca, targeting Slaanesh, since he/she/it is the only one there.

    There, three cards "played" with one move.

    Slaanesh remains unphased by being "meddled" by Skaven. I suppose it's as expected.
