[Chaos] C(thulhu)itOW game 86 - Cthulhu Takes A Meteor Shower with Franz & Witches

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.

Cerberus 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.

Cutfang 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:

Not being played this game.
??? 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.'

mi-go hunter as Cthulhu
...the Old or Ancient Ones, the Elder Gods, of cosmic good, and those of cosmic evil, bearing many names, and themselves of different groups, as if associated with the elements and yet transcending them: for there are the Water Beings, hidden in the depths; those of Air that are the primal lurkers beyond time; those of Earth, horrible animate survivors of distant eons.
"Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn!"

Lykouragh 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 4 players on the main list & a host.

    Sweet! Thanks for hosting stever :D

    I will take the mantle of Cthulhu.

    I will go with the Bloodletter nerf of 1 VP per kill. Base OW please!

  • CerberusCerberus Registered User regular
    Awesome, totally in!
    Will have a think about preferences in a few hours, its too early for that right now!

  • CerberusCerberus Registered User regular
    Okay, totally more awake now!

    I would like to play...

    Base OWC (Be an easier test run of Cthulhu)
    Morrslieb Chaos Cards and Upgrades
    1 VP per kill for the Bloodletter Upgrade, or the unnerfed upgrade but it cannot be chosen first.
    God preferences - K>Tz>S>N>HR

  • CutfangCutfang Registered User regular
    Oh I will happily play. I had no idea I was in the play list. Preferences go Nurgle = Tzeentch = Horned Rat > Khorne > Slaanesh.

    I'd prefer mixed OW but don't mind much, and 1VP for Bloodletter upgrade. And I'd prefer Morrslieb.

    Slight problem with the board.
    Cthulhu goes before The Horned Rat.
    Not that I'm complaining... :rotate:

    This should be very interesting.
    As I told mi-go before, what a great idea for a Chaos god. :^:

    E - Will the other players know how to handle this new threat to their rule over the OW?
    Will Cthulhu know how to deal out his multi-dimensional power to rule over the puny mortals?
    We shall see...

    Bad weather in mid-continent, huh?

    I'm really interested in C's first move.
    A warrior, a card?

    Honestly, this is the most interesting thing in gaming I've seen in quite a while.

    Frankly, I'm not sure of my first move right now even though I created him! Cthulhu seems like a tricky god to play, so I have to time my moves right.

    True, It'll be interesting how you play your god.

    I noticed this at the last minute, but decided to fix it later rather than making mi-go hunter wait even longer. Perhaps I'll take a look at it today.
