[Chaos] CitOW Game 72 - Gorden is giving his hosting-debut- BE KIND

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.

Angry Guy 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.

Stinky Guy 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!

Tricky Guy as Tzeentch
Spoiler:

Horny Guy 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.'

The Gimp 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 5 players on the main list. Once chosen, the players will decide which decks to use in this game.

    Hey, I am away on honeymoon on the 15th April for 2 weeks, so not really fair for me to play until I get back.
    Thanks for the invite though and good luck with the first time hosting.

    Thank you and have a nice time on your honeymoon. Next name on the list is @Ardor.

    I'll play. No preferences.

    I'm easy like Sunday morning.

    I've not yet played Nurgle or Tzeentch. I'd prefer one of those over the other Gods. I would prefer we not do just expert OWC, fighting the board is much less fun I think.

    Thank you for hosting!

    I think that Elldren don't play it, because when I was invited him Game 71, he didn't response.
    I think that he just enjoy other games. :P :P :P

    Whatever you mean by that ^^. Let's then move down the list to...me. Hmm, tempting but that wouldn't be fair probably ;-) But since the list is long enough, down down down we go to...@Belfast.

  • BelfastBelfast Penguins PenguinsRegistered User regular
    Epic! In by default. I'm down with whatever.

    3 cheers for Chaos!

    I am perfectly willing to play, but when you start games at 3 in the morning and pass over me before 24 hours are up...

  • BelfastBelfast Penguins PenguinsRegistered User regular
    Back to the waiting list I go.

    Sry, @Elldren different timezones etc. I would have waited longer without doldari's post. You're still in, when you give me your preferences. Sry Belfast for making you hope, but there should come another invitation your way soon. I'm looking forward to crush you then ;-)

  • ElldrenElldren 3067-6294-6208Registered User regular
    No, go ahead @Belfast, I am actually fairly busy this week anyhow

    If I interpreted right, that leaves us with:

    -Morrslieb Chaos Cards and Upgrades

    -Basic + Expert OWC

    -NO Houserules

    -God distribution:

    Doldari as Tzeentch
    Ardor as Nurgle
    Felix as the Rat
    Sticks as Khorne
    Belfast as Slaanesh

    If nobody wants to complain, I will set up the board and cards in a few hours.
    When one of you has a different username on the handtracker site, this is the time to tell me. (Felix = FelixPA? & Belfast = BelfastMarsh?)
    I also assume you are all familiar with our PbP gaming style, or does anyone need an explanation to the handtracker, orokos or whatever?

    FelixPA is likely mine as well but I stumped myself on the password.
