[Chaos] CitOW game 49

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 (and a fifth, uninvited guest). Speaking of which, I believe this calls for some introductions.

??? 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.

??? 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!

??? as Tzeentch
Spoiler:

??? 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.'

??? as the Horned Rat
The Horned Rat does not exist, nor is there such thing as the ratmen that worship it. Scholars have concluded that claims of an empire of vicious verminfolk are nothing more than stories invented to frighten the very young. Any reports of having sighted these "skaven" is seen as spreading discord amongst the faithful and, naturally, quite blasphemous. The skittering and scratching you hear deep below you at night is naught but the fevered workings of your imagination. If you insist that you have seen these creatures, please see your nearest witch hunter to be summarily executed for your blatant heresy.

This will be a Play-By-Post game of Chaos in the Old World for 5 players utilizing the new Morrslieb decks and the original set of Old World cards. Invitations will be taken from the discussion thread and offered to the top 3 players on the main list, a newbie, and a host.

    I'm in - I prefer Nurgle or Slaanesh. How do you get the cool colours?

  • DarianDarian Registered User regular
    Like this or this
    [b][color=limegreen]Like this[/color][/b] [b][color=mediumorchid]or this[/color][/b]
    

    I usually highlight whatever I want to color, then press bold twice, then change one of the set of bold tags to color tags.

    Darian, including your FAQ somewhere in the OP would be helpful.

  • DarianDarian Registered User regular
    Done. I knew I had that third post for a reason.

  • Bobkins FlymoBobkins Flymo The Positive Perspective Registered User, Super Moderator, Moderator mod
    Darian, your FAQ seems to imply a max of ONE DAC per phase, when my guess is one per region per phase.

    Round 1, Old World phase

    A harsh cry is heard from the south: WAAAAAGH!

    Greenskins Invade
    Remove all Event tokens from the board and remove any Old World cards bearing the Twin-tailed Comet icon from the Old World track. Then, place an Event token in each of The Badlands, The Empire and Tilea.
    While this Old World card remains in play, each player battling in a region containing an Event token may roll only one battle die, in total, per battle phase. If some of a player's battle dice have different capabilities than others, each player may choose which of his battle dice to roll.

    No decisions to be made for the OWC.

    Round 1, Draw phase

    Tzeentch may discard one card before drawing up to 5.

    Draw 2, 5 in hand, 19 left in deck
    Draw 2, 5 in hand, 19 left in deck
    Draw 2 or 3, 5 in hand, 19 or 18 left in deck
    Draw 2, 5 in hand, 19 left in deck
    Draw 2, 5 in hand, 19 left in deck

    Once Tzeentch makes his decision, Khorne is active to begin the first summoning phase. Good luck!

    ROUND 2: SCREW KHORNE
    ROUND 3: SCREW KHORNE
    ROUND 4: OH SAVE US FROM THE HORNED RAT, MR. KHORNE!

    NOW, I'M NOT TELLING YOU HOW TO DO YOUR JOBS. WAIT, I AM, BUT AT LEAST TRY TO IMPEDE THE FUCKING RAT. LET'S NOT HAVE A REPEAT OF HISTORY. I MEAN, DO I LOOK LIKE GODDAMN PEST CONTROL?

    THE ANSWER IS "NO, KHORNE! NOW PLEASE TAKE MY SKULL!"

    I don't think Slaanesh wants to give Tzeentch a free cultist in Bretonnia. :) Unless he does; you never know with that guy.

    You know, it would be a much more chaotic game if you could summon other people's figures, instead of just your own. Also, fixed.
