    Okay, so I think I know how to win this one.

    I Skitterleap everything into Norsica, and then use Under Empire to jump my Rat Ogre from Norsica to Kislev. By my calculations that should give me first in Norsica, causing Tzeentch and Slannesh to tie for second (which results in no bonus points to either of them I think). The Rat Ogre gives me second place in Kislev, and the bonus that goes with that. This appears to not violate the rules.

    Also, I got 5 VP from Estalia, not 4, right? Because of the Noble?

    Tie for second place means we split second place points.

    In case anyone's interested;

    After Khorne, Nurgle and Tzeentch rolled in Norsca, I missed an 87.5% probability of one hit which would have been used to kill one Acolyte. The Rat then landed a 2.2% chance of six hits (actually he landed a 0.5% chance of seven hits!), wiping out enough of my cultists to do two things; leave me tied for second place instead of a clean second place and remove the possibility of me getting a dial tick. Then, when domination of Estalia was denied him, he landed a 9% chance of rolling 3 hits on two dice, allowing him to regain domination and ultimately tie me on VP. And, of course, since I didn't get a dial tick this round, instead of us being tied 61-61 with 24 threat each (a win for me, since the Rat always has lowest threat in ties) we were tied 61-61 with 24-19 threat for the tiebreaker.

    12.5% chance, 2.2% chance, 9% chance. And all three happened, and that's how the Rat won. Well, that and Tzeentch sending half a dozen Acolytes to Norsca when he would have been better served merely disrupting me instead of hastening the region's ruin. Stalling me out then teleporting the greater Daemon to a ruined region would have been infinitely more effective than the last-place securing strategy he ultimately employed, but this isn't his fault. This is nobody's fault but the dice gods'.

    The combined odds of those three events happening? 0.0002475%, or one in four thousand. What is this, I don't even.

    Congrats, LFHX.

    I like to think that, though I did come in last in the end, I was by far the most hated player this game, which is kind of like winning :) .

    GG All, and congrats LFHX!

    Well, that was stupid lucky. Though I have to say, Tzeentch whiffed it big time, and that gave me less room to play with. If I had rolled a bit worse, like 3 hits worse, and Tzeentch had rolled an extra hit, the game would have turned out the same.

    Also, if Khorne had managed to not hit in one of his two combats, then I could have gotten two dial ticks, giving me threat and more VP.

    Though I do have to relish this victory quite a bit, as it's my first one in the PA community. I wish it could have been a bit of a cleaner win though.
