[Chaos] CitOW game 73

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.

visiblehowl 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:

Tayrun 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.'

Gorden858 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 2 players on the main list, 1 newbies, and 2 hosts. Once chosen, the players will decide which decks to use in this game.

Rules in effect for this game:
Morrslieb decks for Chaos cards

    Darian's personal Unofficial FAQ for the Horned Rat (Now with some official rulings):
    Spoiler:

  • TayrunTayrun Registered User regular
    Invitation happily accepted, dearest Darry.

    Khorne/Slaanesh/Tzeentch > Nurgle > Horned Rat

    No preference on Base or Morrslieb chaos decks.

    No preference on base/expert/mixed Old World Cards.

    If using Morrslieb chaos decks, yes to nerfing the bloodletter upgrade. I think either 1VP/kill or max 2VP/region are both fine choices.

    Wildstar: Kragor, Stormtalon.

    Thanks for the invitation.

    HR>S>N>K>T

    Morrslieb

    Mixed

    1P/kill

    I will try to find an avatar, although I kind of like the default one :-(

  • visiblehowlvisiblehowl Registered User regular
    I think I've played everybody but Khorne in the expansion, so I guess he's my first choice. Otherwise I'd like another crack at Horned Rat, I think, now that I actually know how his stuff works. After that I have no real god preference.

    Heavy preference for Morrslieb chaos decks.

    Old World preference: Expert > Base >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Mixed

    No preference on the Khorne rule, I guess.

    If it's alright with you, Darian, I'll let @Elldren play instead of me, as she was up to play in Game 72 and missed out due to a short wait (and I'm particularly sensitive to such issues). If it's not ok or if she declines, my preferences:

    Gods: T > N > HR > K > S
    Cards: Morrslieb
    OWCs: Mixed > Base > Expert
    Bloodletter upgrade: 1 VP per kill

    Elldren has already declined to play.

    As usual, when I try to be a nice guy, I just end up looking like a douche anyway. I remember Tayrun saying he was looking for a more newbie-ish game, so I figured another player with less experience would also be better. Kill two birds with one stone, right? But I probably should've done some PMing before posting and showing people up.

    Yay, I get to play again!

    True. I'd have stopped 1v1ing you weeks ago if I didn't.

    Also, can't tell if compliment or just looking forward to watching me get beaten down.

    Both, right?

    Hey !
    (: I think I just got invited. (:

    I do not mind about OWC.

    HR>Tz>Khorne>Nurgle>Slaan
    I am not claiming to be a good player of HR, but I would like to have a play at it.


    I do not like The Bloodletter Pointathon. It makes the game no fun.
    Anyone taking it will have the size of their genitals questioned.

    Looks to me as though we are going with Morrslieb decks and a Mixed OWC set, assuming visiblehowl doesn't talk the rest of you out of it between now and when I draw the first card.

    Bloodletter upgrade will be worth 1 VP per kill and Magic Geek promises to think less of you if you choose it.

    Also, bad @Magic Geek; DarkOrange is reserved for hosts.

    Quick roll to see whose preferences will be first considered:
    Power choice: T/g/v/b/M
    Results 5d1000: [5d1000=143, 432, 47, 976, 312]

    Gorden858: Horned Rat
    Magic Geek: Khorne (!)
    Tayrun: Slaanesh
    visiblehowl: Nurgle

    Actually, thinking about it, I'd rather use either base or expert OWC. Don't mind which.

    Mixing makes it harder for us newbies to learn the decks.

    Pregame

    Each of you may draw the first three cards from your deck.

    Round 1, Old World phase

    citowg73r10.png

    Dwarf Trollslayers
    Place one Hero token in each of Norsca and Kislev, or place one Hero token in each of Troll Country and The Empire.
    In the end phase when Old World cards are resolved, the player with the smallest Threat score places an additional Hero token in any region where there is already a Hero token.

    @Gorden858 needs to decide where the Heroes will arrive

    Round 1, Draw phase
    @blahmcblah may discard one card before drawing up to 5

    Everyone else draws two more cards, giving them 5 going into the first round

    I'll defer to the newbie and the joint second choice--Base Deck for Old World cards. (I'm not going to change anything in the game as set up, but we'll discard any expert cards which are drawn.)

    Hmmm. Half-Strength Bloodletter Upgrade.

    "We salute you, our half-inflated dark lord!"

    Still seems kinda strong, but obviously not Viagra level.
