[Chaos] CitOW Game 71 - In doldari's 3rd 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.

texasheat 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.

Aegis 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!

Jebu as Tzeentch
Spoiler:

Darian 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.'

jakobagger 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.

----

  • DarianDarian Registered User regular
    I think I'm the fifth here? No preference on chaos cards. I don't think I've tried Expert OWC only yet, so lets go for that.

    First preference is Tzeentch or the Rat since I haven't won with them; no preference past that.

    Elldren, I guess he don't want to play it. So I'll invite Sticks.

    I would like to, but I'll be out of town for a week starting tomorrow. I don't want to hold up the start of the game when momentum is usually highest.

    Ok, I'll invite Aegis.

  • AegisAegis Registered User regular
    Sweet! I don't like the mixed deck, so Expert Only would be my first choice followed by Basic Only. Morrisleb deck preference, also.

    Nurgle > Tzeentch > Slaanesh > Khorne > Horned Rat

    1. Basic or Morrslieb Chaos Cards and Upgrade Cards.
    Basic (texasheat) / Morrslieb (Aegis) / No preference (jacobagger, Darian, Jebu)

    I roll dice to choice type.
    Roll Basic or Morrslieb(ja,t,je,d,a) [5d100=74, 30, 72, 14, 93]
    In Aegis opinion, Morrslieb Chaos Cards and Upgrade Cards.


    2. Basic Old World Cards or Basic+Expert Old World Cards or Only Expert Old World Cards
    Basic (jacobagger) / Mixed (jacobagger) / Expert (texasheat, Darian, Aegis) / No preference (Jebu)

    So, majority decision, Only Expert Old World Cards.


    3. Also any preference to playing any particular gods.

    I roll dice to get God Order and Player Order.
    Roll God Order(K,N,T,S,HR) [5d1000=55, 231, 135, 402, 991]
    God Order ( HR > S > N > T > K )
    Roll Player Order(ja,t,je,d,a) [5d10000=9811, 9113, 9323, 3579, 5505]
    Player Order ( jakobagger > Jebu > texasheat > Aegis > Darian )

    1. jakobagger ( HR > S > N > T > K )
    2. Jebu ( HR > T > S > K > N )
    3. texasheat ( T > K > N > HR > S )
    4. Aegis ( N > T > S > K > HR )
    5. Darian ( HR > T > S > N > K )

    texasheat as Khorne (red)
    Aegis as Nurgle (limegreen)
    Jebu as Tzeentch (dodgerblue)
    Darian as Slaanesh (mediumorchid)
    jakobagger as The Horned Rat (gray)

    I have no idea what any of those rolls mean, but I would still just like to say that you're all my little beautiful diseased creations and I will shower my undying pus and pestilence upon you.

    Round 1-1. Old World Phases

    Closing the Portal
    Place one Warpstone token in every region with six or more total corruption tokens (not counting Warpstone already in that region). - Players cannot draw more than one card during the draw phase.

    No Warpstone token.

    Draw 3 chaos cards each.

  • doldaridoldari Registered User regular
    Round 1-2. Draw Phases

    Tzeentch may choose to discard one card before drawing.

    Draw 1, 4 in hand, 20 left in deck
    Draw 1, 4 in hand, 20 left in deck
    Draw 1, 3 or 4 in hand, 20 left in deck
    Draw 1, 4 in hand, 20 left in deck
    Draw 1, 4 in hand, 20 left in deck

    Once Tzeentch has decided whether or not to discard, Khorne will be active to begin the first summoning phase.

  • texasheattexasheat Registered User regular
    So based on the rolls, the two people who specifically asked to be tzeentch did not get tzeentch....Yea i'm gonna vote against random rolls on that in the future. BLOOD FOR THE BLOOD GOD!!!!!

    So, were starting the game with...4 cards? Or 3? We should have 3 at the start, plus only 1 for the draw phase...right?

    Worse is what I got in game 66: Skaven tokens in Estalia and Empire. I consider that the worst possible placements.

  • DarianDarian Registered User regular
    Yeah, the outer regions are easy to dominate with just cards, if you need to.
