    I think Khorne took the other card slot there, so you'll probably have to do something else.

    And I don't think I've won just yet, depending upon the die rolls and what Tzeentch does. I've been expecting him to screw me over.

    Nurgle is out too, so be careful who you kill in Bretonnia. (Death is creeping around the corner...)

    If Tzeentch wins because of havoc I'm going to be very cross with you guys, since you could have stopped it if you tried.

    Hmmm with one more acolyte and havoc he still cant win. He gets 5 + 3 from his dial. You however are pretty much set to win automatically next turn if you dont win in this one. :(

    If he lays down havoc he gets 9 domination points there, while Slaanesh has 8. The game will end with either him or me as the winner this turn if he does that.

    Eh...not that it matters so much in the end, but I still have 2 PP to spend, and this was done out of order.

    Though now knowing that a Havoc is going to happen...Bloodletter to Norsca I guess.

    0/7 PP and rest.

    You are going over 50 this turn. You have enough to dominate which is worth a ton due to the nobles and the keeper of secrets, and ratty can only tie you for second place in ruination bonus. I'm pretty sure I can pass you if I ruin Bretonnia, but if not you win.

    I warned you guys, but oh well.

    Nurgle should never have been allowed to double creeping death in BP. Nurgle stuck a warrior in Estalia on turn 3, stoping significant domination points for me, so cry me a river. I played the game I had available, and made a couple of mistakes. Slaan is not something I have a handle on, but I think I am getting there. Maybe next time those sodding Witch hunters will not be permanently in play. Go Tz, Unless I change my mind...

    Estalia is experiencing Havok. Yea yea yea.

    Spoiler:

    Round 4 Old World Phase

    Norsca: 3 dice 1 dead rat
    Troll Country: 1 die
    Bretonnia: 3 dice 2 dice 1 die
    Estalia: Havok'd
    Tilea: 3 dice
    The Border Princes: 1 die 1 die

    Be very careful about region/power order here since this will likely decide things.

    I am willing to entertain arguments about the proper amount of dice for Khorne to roll in The Border Princes. It becomes an order of operations question as I see it.

  • TomeWyrmTomeWyrm Registered User regular
    Bloodletter in Norsca grabs one rat and hugs him and squeezes him and calls him George before reducing him to paste.

    With regards to Border Princes, I can easily see why I wouldn't get any dice at all now that I read the exact wording for Vengeance. I certainly wouldn't mind rolling, but won't oppose the ruling if you go with me not being able to.

  • DevoutlyApatheticDevoutlyApathetic I've Done Worse Registered User regular
    My thoughts were something like Vengence requires you to be rolling a die and Choking reduces the amount you roll....so if that number is 0 then you aren't rolling "at least one die". I'll wait until I've heard in from other players before making a final call. It is happily at the end of the battle order.

  • DarianDarian Registered User regular
    edited December 2011
    I'm on the 0 dice side of the argument. In my opinion, Vengeance gives an extra die after you are ready to roll some, but can never be your only die.

    edit: This exact example is already in the unofficial FAQ in post 3, actually.

    Darian on
  • DevoutlyApatheticDevoutlyApathetic I've Done Worse Registered User regular
    Argh! I went and checked that but missed it hiding at the bottom.

    As it is explicitly called out in the FAQ we're going with the FAQ interpretation.

    So we're just going to follow the rules now?

    What happened to you man, you used to be cool.
