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.

----

This will be a Play-By-Post game of Chaos in the Old World.

HOW TO MAKE A BATTLE ROLL:
You can make battle rolls via orokos
Delmain wrote: »
Use Xd6o6h4.

o is for Open, it rolls them over and over until you get a not-6. e6 just rerolls 6s once, even if another 6 comes up.

Please use "COW 10" as the campaign name.

If you are uncomfortable inputing your own rolls, I can make them for you. I have been modding games on BGG for awhile now, but this will be my first on this board.

----

You can read some good game information in the first few posts of Game 9 if you are unfamiliar with how to play.

I will be using the growing list of people who have been wanting to play to fill the Chaos Gods' shoes for this match.

    Welcome aboard, Mordenthral. I loosely followed your first game on BGG; glad to see you here with us.

    Speaking of the BGG games, I'm still not quite sure how this happened:

    Victory step
    Khorne 42VP, 4/10
    Nurgle 27VP, 5/11
    Tzeentch 23VP, 7/9
    Slaanesh 24VP, 4/8

    How in the world did they manage to let you get that many VP with Khorne, that quickly?

  • MordenthralMordenthral Registered User
    edited March 2010
    Yeah.. right?

    Everyone is too afraid to give Khorne something to kill. They give me the run of the board every turn. Even with my cultists.

    OK, the following players should sound off and select the Chaos God of their preference, in the order listed.

    El Skid
    The Cow King
    GoodOmens
    Shushnik

    I will then deal out cards; post the starting board; and give Tzeentch a chance to discard before the draw phase.

    If I might make a suggestion, it may be wise to inform the other players that they have been granted slots in this game. I doubt they will be subscribed to this thread, and they probably won't be responding until they stumble upon it's chaosy goodness.

    Yep, I got lucky stumbling in here. I figured I'd sign up just in case I didn't get into Game 9.

    I'm eager to avenge my terrible performance in my game that just ended (check my signature for the thread, if you're interested.)

    I've read through the games that have been modded on here. Some good reading. :)

    If you want to see a game where Khorne is (hopefully) about to win by VPs, check out the link that Darian put in above.

    I think the nature of this game -- minimal interaction with card draws and other hidden stuff, and frequent but short actions -- really lends itself to PbP play.

    The fact that it's a bloody great game helps too, but I think it's the natural convenience that has brought us to 10 straight games.

    I've thought about trying Primordial Soup for similar reasons.

    I've just tried to ping The Cow King on Windows Live Messenger. I'll wait until after work tomorrow before moving on to GoodOmens and tacking another name from the list on as the last player.

    Obviously GoodOmens has first selection, but for the record I'll select in this order, so just fit me in depending on what he takes.

    Nurgle>Slaanesh>Tzeentch

    Looks like I didn't make it into Game 9, so if you need a fourth player here, I submit my name!

    OK, then I'll go with Tzeentch.

    I know I previously said that I'd prefer to actually roll some battle dice, but Nurgle is the power I'm least interested in, and Khorne's out.

    Let us bathe the Old World in BLOOD (and pus and change and sex juices, optionally)!

    Ok, Tzeentch, we expect to see Horrors take the field of battle as you strive for victory. Roll those bones!

    I'm actually at a store right now waiting on my wife. I'll kick it off when I get home in a bit.

    Starting hands have been sent out.

    Old World card - Skavengers: Place one Skaven in Badlands and Border Princes. In the end phase, the player with the lowest threat places one Skaven in one region where there is at least one Warpstone.

    Tzeentch, let us know if and what you wish to discard before drawing to 5 cards.

    No discard, thanks. These cards fit my plans perfectly.

    Of course, all cards fit my plans perfectly. Even the one that don't.

    Brothers, the old world appears to align itself to the joy of Khorne. Blood shall run deep, the bloodthirsters will feast. Our actions must balance this sanguine delight.

    Although you are entirely correct in your conclusions, the piddling skaven will only serve to make my task harder.

    I'm told the harder fought the victory, the greater the rewards... Truly I shall have to see that my throne grows large with the skulls of my enemies...and my friends too, of course.

    Let us send an emissary to the Border Princes, just to scope things out and prepare for the slaughter to follow...

    Dangit Mordenthral, the map template is minimalistic so that it can be saved as a gif or indexed png without any loss while maintaining a small file size. Saving the map as a jpg misses the point entirely, since it introduces noise AND has larger file sizes. Fix it! :D

    I think we can assume that brother Tzeentch does this move now, given his comments. That would mean Slaanesh is up.
