[Chaos] CitOW game 67 - Blood crazed Khorne wins a dial 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.

Magic Geek 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.

Cerberus 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!

blahmcblah as Tzeentch
Spoiler:

admanb 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.'

Ardor 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, and on the composition of the Old World Deck. Invitations will be taken from the discussion thread and offered to five players.

    Invitations have been sent; should any of the invitees not respond by Monday, I'll send invites down the signup list until we have five players. Players, please remember to state your preferences for deck, OWCs, and god when you check in here. I personally would vote for expert OWC only as I think it balances out the new upgrades pretty well. But then again I am only the host. *sniff*

  • Magic GeekMagic Geek Registered User regular
    Yes please!

    :)

    I dont mind about what kind of deck.


    Khorne please.

    Or maybe HR, but I do not claim to be any good as HR.
    Possibly TZ
    Nurgle I have played enough.
    And I suck at Slaan.

    Slaanesh for me
    But if there are a lot of eager players, I can be last priority.

    @mi-go hunter That's strange, you were not one of those I invited. I took the top 5 of the list which was Magic Geek, blahmcblah, admanb, Ardor and Cerberus. Unless you are one of them?

    Hey, cool! When I saw I had a PM from pesky, I thought I probably just screwed something up in one of the games I'm hosting, so this is a pleasant surprise. Anyhoo, I'll vote for Morrslieb, mixed OWCs, and a Bloodletter upgrade nerf of some kind (if you put it to a vote).

    Oh, and my god preferences: T > N > HR > K > S

    Hell Yes!!!

    Do we want to do a HR game with the base cards? Would be interesting, just throwing it out there...
    I am fine with Expert deck, I think it makes the HR a lot more fun.

    I'm with Blah on the nerf if the question gets asked...

    @Ardor come in and play!

    Votes so far.
    OWC: 1 Expert, 1 Mixed, 2 don't care
    Upgrade cards: 1 Morrslieb, 1 Base, 2 don't care
    Khorne Bloodletter Nerf: 2 for nerf, 0 against nerf, 2 don't care

    Please vote for type of nerf:
    A. 1 point per kill
    B. 2 points max per region
    C. Complete nerf, replace with Base upgrade

  • ArdorArdor Registered User regular
    I've played Slaan and Khorne now, so I'd like to try a God that isn't one of them.

    I think the khorne bloodletter upgrade needs some review as well. I only know the morrslieb cards so I'll probably stick to them. I think it'd be interesting to try the expert OWC deck.

  • ArdorArdor Registered User regular
    You know, I'd be fine with the khorne playing choosing which nerf from the above options to take prior to the game starting (Magic Geek).

    OK that leaves us with the following:

    Votes
    OWC: 2 Expert, 1 Mixed, 2 don't care
    Upgrade cards: 2 Morrslieb, 1 Base, 2 don't care
    Khorne Bloodletter Nerf: 3 for nerf, 0 against nerf, 2 don't care
    Type of Nerf: 3 to allow Khorne to choose, 2 don't care

    The game will be played with Expert OWC only, Morrslieb upgrades and Bloodletter nerf with Khorne deciding.

    Power Assignments
    admanb, Ardor, blahmcblah, Cerberus, Magic Geek: 5d100=75, 98, 94, 68, 87
    Khorne (red)-Magic Geek
    Nurgle (limegreen)-Cerberus
    Tzeentch (dodgerblue)-blahmcblah
    Slaanesh (mediumorchid)-admanb
    HR (gray)-Ardor

    Magic Geek, please choose from the following nerfs:
    A. 1 point per kill
    B. 2 points max per region
    C. Complete nerf, replace with Base upgrade

    You have all been added to CitOW Game 67 at the handtracker site. Decks have been shuffled to please proceed to draw your starting 3 cards each. OWC and draw phase will be coming shortly. Good luck to all!

    Round 1-Old World Phase

    game67state02.png

    The Horned One's Due - 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 one Event token in each of Bretonnia and the Empire, or in each of Estalia and Tilea. - Only one Chaos card (rather than two) may be played in any region containing an Event token.

    In the interest of time, we will combine the draw phase with this OWC phase.

    Things that need to happen (Do not wait for card draws but feel free to do the rest in order or not, your choice):
    1. Magic Geek to decide on the type of nerf
    2. Magic Geek to draw starting 3 cards. 3 in hand, 21 left in deck.
    3. Cerberus to draw starting 3 cards. 3 in hand, 21 left in deck.
    4. blahmcblah to draw starting 3 cards. 3 in hand, 21 left in deck.
    5. admanb to draw starting 3 cards. 3 in hand, 21 left in deck.
    6. Ardor to draw starting 3 cards. 3 in hand, 21 left in deck.
    7. Ardor to decide which 2 regions to place Event tokens in.
    8. Magic Geek to draw 2 cards. 5 in hand, 19 left in deck.
    9. Cerberus to draw 2 cards. 5 in hand, 19 left in deck.
    10. blahmcblah to decide on discarding and then draw up to 5. 5 in hand, 19 or 18 left in deck.
    11. admanb to draw 2 cards. 5 in hand, 19 left in deck.
    12. Ardor to draw 2 cards. 5 in hand, 19 left in deck.

    Yay, I finally get to play as Tzeentch! Boo, my hand sucks so far! At least we haven't hit Closing the Portal yet. Oh, I guess that'd actually be better for me early rather than late. Bah.

    Regardless of the nerf or event token placement, I will discard Transmogrify.

    Edit: At least it wasn't Morrslieb Eclipsed!

    This is hysterical. :)

    I got perma-banned from BGG because I argued The Bloodletter Upgrade is broken.
    And here I get forced to choose how I want to nerf it....



    I choose D.

    I will not play a Bloodletter Upgrade.

    Mid April I get married, so will be away on honeymoon for two weeks. Not sure on activity here during that time.

    Yes, hopefully we'll be done before then. Congratulations! I was also honeymooning during my time away from Game 52 back when.
