[Chaos] CitOW Game 54 - Khorne Dials Up a Victory!

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.

texasheat 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.

3clipse 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!

jakobagger as Tzeentch
Spoiler:

BobCesca 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.'

FunkyWaltDogg 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 both the original and expert sets of Old World cards mixed. 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 don't think Darian ever got around to doing it, but I think The Cow King should be at the top of the signup list again?

    Hey, the map is wrong - texas played the Bloodthirster in Estalia, not a bloodletter. Also, he should be at 2 power not three, for the same reason. And 3clipse played the second leper in Bretonnia, not Estalia.

    PS: dear Khorne, I don't really see how that will stop any DAC's and also I'm probably not the guy to be messing with.

    I love this part of the post. You can just hear the word -
    HEY! :?

    Thanks for the heads up jako! I mean it.
    Never let a host get too far from a mistake.
    It gets even harder to fix it.

    Hmmm. Perhaps you are correct brother Tzeentch. However, every time time i've played korne, here at home anyway, i always seem to lose to your power. Your play against Nurgle with Glean was very well done. And to be honest, i think it says something about your thought process...you're good. In addition, Slaneesh is a noob, but don't worry i'll be getting to him too, i'm already messing with Nurgle in Estalia and the empire, the rat, well it was a choice between you and him for the first round...nothing personal mind you...tails just isn't your side of the coin...Thank you for the correction there, i couldn't see the map to confirm my actions.

    I know that i stopped you in Kislev from getting DAC. However, i've played wrong in the past, so i'll ask the question. You need 2 magic icons, And/Or 2 warpstones yes? That dosen't seem to say 1 of each yes? I could have been playing wrong and it DOES mean 1 of each, but that's not how i read it originally. If i'm wrong, then yes the bloodbath was perhaps a stupid move...

    Maybe I thought those moves I posted were better. Ever think of that? Huh?

    No actually only Stalin attended that meeting. Who is this Trotsky-person of whom you speak, comrade? Also, we have always been at war with Eurasia. What is problem?

    PS. actually it was supposed to be more of a relaxed "hey", the kind that might be followed by "dude". Getting nuances right in a foreign language is hard sometimes.

    To Khorne: I thank you for the compliment, but also warn you that I might decide to ruin your fun if you ruin mine. Wouldn't you rather be friends? Also, Nurgle's still got plenty of power to run to whichever of Bretonnia or Kislev you don't put a warrior in. So uh, contemplate that shit.
