[Chaos] CitOW Game 83 - In doldari's 8th Old World, who will be able to destroy it?

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.

Aegis as Khorne
The Blood god - murder, maim, kill. Tends to win by dial victory, and earns advances by killing enemy figures. Straightforward to play, but must keep a close watch on everything that is happening to extend the game long enough to achieve victory (he needs nine dial ticks, so he has to double tick multiple times and prevent others from winning by VP before he gets there).
Spoiler:

pesky as Nurgle
The Lord of Pestilence - spreading filth and disease among the cities and towns. Longest dial track, making a dial victory difficult, if not impossible. But Nurgle can benefit from others' ruinations and can shoot up the VP track in the mid-to-late game. Never out of contention.
Spoiler:

susan as Tzeentch
The Changer of Ways - making plans and reshaping reality to suit himself. Tzeentch is the most reliant of all the gods on his Chaos cards; his are cheaper and he gets to draw more of them than anyone else. Depending on the Old World deck, he can go for either a dial or VP victory, but he has to find Warpstones and cast magic spells in order to prepare regions for ideal corruption.
Spoiler:

Rius as Slaanesh
the Prince of Pleasure (and pain) - seducing the nobility and heroes of the land, swaying them to his side. With the shortest dial track, Slaanesh can win without ever double-ticking, and by focusing on regions with nobles can build up VP quickly.
Spoiler:

LoserForHireX as the Horned Rat
The Undying Schemer - rising from under the ground with his skittering horde. Rather than seeking to corrupt the Old World, the Horned Rat instead strains to overrun it, with more figures than any other god and abilities that enhance their mobility.
Spoiler:

----

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 who wish to play Morrslieb only, expert OWC only.

Rules in effect for this game:
Morrslieb decks for Chaos cards
Expert set of Old World cards
Khorne's Bloodletter upgrade is only worth 1 VP per kill.

    1. Select god order.
    2. Let me know weather or not to change Bloodletter upgrade.

    If anyone has a different handtracker login name than on here, please let me know.

    Hmm... I will sign up for this game. More self-immolation with Morrslieb + Expert =)

    I think... N = H >T = S > K, for me. I still want a Khorne win but having just played him I'd like to expand a bit.

    I'm down

    HR = N > S = K > T

    Round 1-1. Old World Phases

    Draw 3 chaos cards each.

    Vermin Outbreak
    Place one Skaven token in each of four different regions. - The cost to summon each figure is increased by one. Chaos card effects are immune to this limitation. Each player may roll no more than two battle dice per battle, per region.

    Round 1-2. Draw Phases

    Tzeentch may choose to discard one card before drawing.

    Draw 2, 5 in hand, 19 left in deck, 0 discard
    Draw 2, 5 in hand, 19 left in deck, 0 discard
    Draw 2 or 3, 5 in hand, 18 or 19 left in deck, 0 or 1 discard
    Draw 2, 5 in hand, 19 left in deck, 0 discard

    Things that need to happen:

    2. @susan decide whether or not to discard chaos card.
    3. Start Summon Phase.

    Wait, didn't we have "only one chaos card in event regions" a moment ago?

    Edit: Hah, ok; that's 82's board.

    Edit x2: Also, my condolences Aegis. Hopefully you pull some useful Chaos Cards.

    Indeed, after the filthy cock block of Tzeentch I had to go there instead...
