[Chaos] CitOW game 20 - Slaanesh Victory at the last moment!

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. Speaking of which, I believe this calls for some introductions.

The Bashar 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.

jakobagger 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!

Nought as Tzeentch
Spoiler:

Capfalcon 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.'

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

Sign ups are being taken from the discussion/general sign up thread. Spots will be offered to the top three players on the main list there, along with the top host.

    It's quite impressive. Mordenthral gives him some serious competition though.

    This has always seemed to me to be one of those boardgames that I'll never figure out unless I can physically see everything in front of me while having people explain at the same time.

    I thought so too until I actually played in a game here. Once you play it starts to make sense instantly.

    Waiting to hear from The Bashar - hasn't been on the forums in a while; I'll give him until Monday evening to check in, before grabbing the next name on the list.

    Yeah I knew, or figured, that you were in America.

    Regarding the World Cup: I'm Danish, not Dutch, which many Americans seem to confuse. We were knocked out long ago. I did root for the netherlands at first in the final, but god damn they played terribly. Boring and violent. It was a Good Thing for non- boring football that Spain won, even though they didn't play as well as they could have.

    But thanks though! I don't really follow football, but I like it when we win.

    Round 1, Old World phase

    The Emporer sounds a warning to the people, and throughout the land they begin to flee for safety...

    Franz's Decree
    Discard this card and immediately draw another Old World card.

    Mass Exodus
    Place one Peasant token in every region except Norsca, Kislev, and the Badlands.
    Discard this card instead of adding it to the Old World track.

    citowg20r10.gif

    Tzeentch may discard a card (three in hand) before drawing to five, then Khorne is active for the round one Summoning phase.

    Lets make Khornes decisions a bit more clearcut.

    The Meddling of Skaven to Bretonnia.

    The Meddling of Skaven - 1 - When you play this card, choose an opponent with figures in this region. That player must discard two Chaos cards from their hand.

    5/6 PP

    Can't really figure out whether I should be aggravated or happy about Franz' Decree first turn. But damn I hope there won't be a peasant uprising next turn.

    Khorne is angry!

    Discards:
    Reborn In Blood - 2 - During the battle phase, conduct an additional battle in this region.

    Slaanesh is active

    By the way, I'm finding I like limegreen for Nurgle and regular Orchid for Slaanesh, for improved readability.

    It makes it harder to beat the Old World, since you get 2 spots on the Track taken up in 1 turn.

    Even Slaanesh is going to have to double tick to win now. It definitely makes a dial victory a bit harder.

    (M) Dazzle - 2 - During the corruption phase, one Cultist in this region belonging to each of your opponents does not count for corruption token placement.
