CitOW: Game 62-Chaos Returns

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. Invitations will be taken from the discussion thread and offered to the top 4 players on the main list and a host. Will use the Morrslieb set-you guys can decide on the old world deck construction.

    The new year has been lacking in Old World-time to put a stop to it. Sending out invites to top 4 on the list + 1 host. I believe the list is up to date but Darian hasn't been around for awhile so if someone knows otherwise let me know.

    Game will be 5 player Morrsleib decks, post player preference and OWC deck preferences so we can get going

    Thanks for hosting!

    Prefs: Nurgle -> Slaanesh -> Horned Rat -> Khorne -> Tzeentch

  • DevoutlyApatheticDevoutlyApathetic I've Done Worse Registered User regular
    As I'm playing Khorne in 57 I'll state my preferences as:

    Everything that isn't Red > Khorne

    So people can play what they'd like if they have a strong preference.

    I guess I'd like Khorne>Slaanesh>HR>Tzeentch>Nurgle, and I like all the cards in the OWC deck.

    Thanks for hosting! I have played in four games now, I really need to step up and host one.

    Well that's everyone giving us the following players:
    Khorne-Lykouragh
    Nurgle-Wolf of Dresden
    Tzeentch-devoutlyapathetic
    Slaanesh-Visiblehowl
    Horned Rat-admanb

    And with one vote each for mixed OWC and expert only I will rule in favor of expert only, because and old world victory is a host victory as far as I'm concerned. Will put together the board and deck permissions in a little bit

    Round 1-Summoning Phase

    And it all began with an eruption!
    The Warrens Erupt! - Place one Skaven token in each region that does not currently have a Skaven token. - In the end phase, players who collected only one dial advancement counter do not advance their dial.

    giving us the following board

    game62state1.png

    Everyone may draw 5 cards to start, Tzeentch may draw to 3-choose to discard 1, then finish drawing to hand size of 5. Khorne can began before or after that or whenever the blood god pleases really

    In the past I have included a list of all the chaos cards that had a persistent effect here, though the reason for this was mostly due to the expansion being new and everyone not being as familiar to everyone. Is this still wanted by the current players or does anyone bother to read any of the things after the board image anymore?

    also Nurgle is active
