[Chaos] CitOW game 84 - BrendenPA Wins as Khorne in First PA Game!

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.

BrendenPA 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.

Daemonis 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!

texasheat as Tzeentch
Spoiler:

doldari 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.'

visiblehowl 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. Old World deck will be voted upon, as well as how to, or not, nerf the Khorne Bloodletter upgrade. Invitations will be taken from the discussion thread and offered to the top 3 players on the main list, a newbie, and a host.

    No preference on God or Khorne upgrade

    Thank you also for hosting this.

  • MrBodyMrBody Registered User regular
    I'll have to pass right now. Little too much going on.

  • CerberusCerberus Registered User regular
    Hey, just so you know i was down as inactive until game 76 finished, which it has. So if you get anymore passes I'd totally love to play. If not, no big deal.

  • DaemonisDaemonis Registered User regular
    I'm in. No god preferences, no game preferences...

  • texasheattexasheat Registered User regular
    I'm in, really want Tzeentch...never played him on here, prolly my fav god.

    Expert only, as it's really the only way for an old world victory
    Base decks, as i've never tried expert base
    If we play morsleb, i would ask not to nerf korne, but rather ask that the korne player not take it as the first upgrade.

    Morrslieb Chaos Cards.
    Expert Old World Card deck.
    Khorne player may not take Bloodletters as the first upgrade,
    (since the 1VP/kill has been used in some games already & I like the non-first choice idea).


    BrendenPA gets Khorne,
    Even=BrendenPA as Khorne; Odd=Daemonis as Khorne
    1d6 = (2)

    So,
    BrendenPA as Khorne
    Daemonis as Nurgle
    texasheat as Tzeentch
    doldari as Slaanesh
    visiblehowl as The Horned Rat

    All may draw their 3 pre-game cards now.

    You may discard, if you wish, but you still draw only one card :)

  • texasheattexasheat Registered User regular
    I fucked up then....i drew 3 cards, not paying attention....i know which one it was...but at this point i think i should probably fix the mistake...suggestions?

  • CerberusCerberus Registered User regular
    No, you start with 3 cards as normal, but in the draw phase when every god except Tzeentch draws 2, you only draw one due to the OWC Closing the Portal.
    So you should have 3 cards and then draw a fourth, note that next turn you will only draw one card, not draw up to 5 because of the OWC, hence why Daemonis was suggesting you may not want to discard. Does this make more sense?

  • texasheattexasheat Registered User regular
    Yes perfectly. Thank you for clerifing
