Description Edit | History

Chaos in the Old World makes you a god. Each god’s distinctive powers and legion of followers grant you unique strengths and diabolical abilities with which to corrupt and enslave the Old World.

  • Khorne, the Blood God, the Skulltaker, lusts for death and battle.
  • Nurgle, the Plaguelord, the Father of Corruption, luxuriates in filth and disease.
  • Tzeentch, the Changer of Ways, the Great Conspirator, plots the fate of the universe.
  • Slaanesh, the Prince of Pleasure and Pain, the Lord of Temptations, lures even the most steadfast to his six deadly seductions.

Yet, as you and your fellow powers of Chaos seek domination by corruption and conquest, you must vie not only against each other, but also against the desperate denizens of the Old World who fight to banish you back to the maelstrom of the Realm of Chaos.

Chaos in the Old World features three ways to win, and gives you an unparalleled opportunity to reshape the world in your image. Every turn you corrupt the landscape, dominating its inhabitants, and battle with the depraved followers of rival gods. Each god has a unique deck of gifts and abilities, and can upgrade their followers into deadly foes. Summon forth living manifestations of Chaos, debased and hidden cultists, and the horrifying greater daemons - beings capable of destroying near everything in their path.

1 Lista de Cartas y movimientos de rueda tanto del juego básico como de la expansión
Lista de las cartas de de las casillas de las ruedas del juego, tanto de la expansión como del juego básico. No intento más que crear una ayuda del juego para aquellos que quieran tenerlo todo controlado en una partida. Este documento sirve de chuleta para saber qué esperar de tu mazo de cartas del caos y del de los rivales. También permite predecir los próximos movimientos de rueda sin moverlas físcamente con la posibilidad de alterar la partida que eso conlleva. ¡Espero que os sea de utilidad! Un saludo

29 My Custom Chaos Map
Although I like the original board as a clever, beautiful piece of art, I thought it cluttered and quite busy for play - especially for new players. Also, i favor a chart over the dials, as I like to see where all the Gods are at a glance, and what they are close to getting. Just my opinion - I know most folks love the original board. I researched several Warhammer RPG maps to make sure I was being somewhat accurate in my placement of stuff (such as the Sea of Claws). Some changes I made: more space for figures and tokens in the regions Borders very easy to see arrows showing region order are replaced with forests that serve the same purpose Populous regions are marked with cities, as opposed to the word "populous" written very small Old world cards are now in the center of...

24 Chaos in the Old World and Horned Rat - Rules Summary Sheets
I've updated the files to include the comments of 'MrMt' who rightly pointed out some confusing areas. Zip contains: Summary of Rules with Horned Rat changes and latest FAQ corrections. Formatted to fit on to 2 or 4 sides of A4 as PDF, also DOC if you want to edit it. Based on previous summary 'Chaos in the Old World memory jogger' (CITOW_refsheet_v1.doc) by 'saxman75'. Also contains 'Horned Rat expansion Dial and Card list' (threat_levels.xls) by 'legendgod' modified to remove typos and slightly re-formatted. If you want to edit the files in Word you will need the font 'Dominican' which can be downloaded here: http://allfont.net/download/dominican/
