After my second play I can't wait to get this back on the table. It feels like it deserves a place in my top 3 games (and I have hundreds) along with Blood Bowl and 7 Ages (strange how it has similar aspects to both of those games...), sorry EiA but you have been a dynasty for ages.
Chaos in the Old World is decidedly awesome; I'm glad you like it! I have also found the various powers to be hugely different. Each player's strategy definitely varies by a considerable amount from game to game.
