[Chaos] CitOW Game 64 - Khorne Dominates the Old World!

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.

pesky 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.

SeGaTai 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!

LoserForHireX as Tzeentch
Spoiler:

stever777 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.'

Belfast 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 five players, wherein the players will vote on whether to use the Base or Morrslieb decks (for all but The Horned Rat), and on the composition of the Old World Deck. Invitations will be taken from the discussion thread and offered to the top four players on the main list and one newbie.

    Hurray!

    I think I might just be overly enthusiastic about everything. It'll be my new angle on life. Not in an annoying way though.

    Anyway: back on topic. I would like to change my preference of Old World Cards to - Expert Old World Cards *ominous music*

    [Edit to avoid double post and provide more info]

    Also I think it should be noted that my username on Handtracker is BelfastMarsh
    do I need a username/profile for anything else?

    I'm in. I'm down for doing the Expert OWC mixed in, and using the expansion upgrades.

    I have no real god preference. I'll play whateva.

    I'd actually prefer you post again rather than edit an old post, as I receive a new notification when you post, but not when you edit, so I could've easily missed your question. Anyway, you'll need an account at either Orokos or Invisible Castle if you need to roll dice at some point.

    A new game! And hosted by blah no less. I AM IN!!!!

    And preferences are for expert Old World Cards only and any god is fine.

    Thanks.

    Makes sense that the first two games I hosted had mixed OWCs, the third is base only, and the fourth is now Expert only. Going by preferences and a single roll, we have:

    pesky as Khorne

    SeGaTai as Nurgle
    LoserForHireX as Tzeentch
    stever777 as Slaanesh
    Belfast as the Horned Rat

    Permissions have been updated on handtracker, so you should all draw your first three cards. Board coming shortly.

    Round 1, Old World and Draw Phases

    You asked for it...

    Rousing the Rabble
    Place one Peasant token in each region. Then, place one Peasant token in the region with the most corruption. - During the end phase, when Hero tokens are resolved, all Peasant tokens count as additional Heroes (they are still Peasants for all other purposes).

    game64state1.png

    Draw Phase:

    Tzeentch may choose to discard one card (discards are done just by playing the card on handtracker, then linking it here) before drawing 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 has decided whether or not to discard, Khorne will be active to begin the first summoning phase.
