Round 1, Corruption Phase
First, we calculate Domination. To dominate a region, you must have a combination of # of figures plus card value greater than the region's Resistance (the number next to the region name in the board image) to score that region's Conquest value in victory points. The Resistance and Conquest Value are the same number, modified by the presence of cards or certain Old World tokens. I'll step through this region by region so you understand what's going on.
Again, in region order:
Norsca: No scoring.
Troll Country: Nurgle has four figures present for a total of four. Tzeentch has a total of two figures present for a total of two. Nurgle scores one VP.
Kislev: Nurgle has two figures present plus one point from card value for a total of three. Tzeentch has two points from card value for a total of three. Neither player has enough to exceed the region's Resistance of 3, so no scoring occurs.
The Empire: Slaanesh has two figures present for a total of two, not enough to exceed the region's Resistance of 5 so no scoring occurs.
Bretonnia: Khorne has two figures present for a total of two. Horned Rat has one figure present for a total of one. Neither player exceeds 3 blahblahblah so no scoring occurs.
Estalia: Khorne has one point, Horned Rat has five from figures and a card. Horned Rat scores four VP and earns one DAC.
Tilea: No scoring.
The Border Princes: No scoring.
The Badlands: No scoring.
Secondly, Corruption is calculated, one for each cultist in every region. In order:
Norsca: No corruption placed.
Troll Country: Nurgle places two corruption. Tzeentch places one corruption.
Kislev: Nurgle places one corruption. Note that Nurgle placed two corruption this round (one of them during the Battle phase) but this does not qualify him for a DAC because his condition requires the corruption to be dropped in the same phase (see reference card).
The Empire: Thanks to Daemonic Subtlety (is that an oxymoron?), Slaanesh places two corruption and earns a DAC.
Bretonnia: Khorne places one corruption.
Estalia: No corruption.
Tilea: Slaanesh places one corruption but does NOT earn a DAC. See below for explanation.
The Border Princes: No corruption.
The Badlands: No corruption.
Okay, so in researching I discovered info conflict and I apologize to bb2112 if he made choices based on this. Specifically, I discovered that while the dial advancement information in my typed up info section is correct, the image of the reference card is from the original printing of the game and therefore the dial advancement info (which says you need to drop one or more corruption to earn a DAC) there is erroneous. The correct condition is two or more corruption in any region containing a noble or hero. Hopefully your single cultist play in Tilea wasn't based on the erroneous information.
