[ERROR] No.22399830 [Reply] [Original] [4plebs] [archived.moe]

For those of you that have even following Kingdom Death: Monster, the second gameplay video was post yesterday. Thoughts?

>> No.22399931

It looks fun and accessible. Easily be able to play this with friends. Though knowing my friends it will be difficult getting them to give it ago.

Poots should have a stretch goal that includes a friend.

>> No.22400116

The various mechanics actually look pretty interesting. I like that it's a co-op style boardgame, but it seems to have a lot of RPG elements as well. Like a deeper version of Descent.
Bumped my pledge to $358.00 based on it.

>> No.22400366

So what's the backstory/plot to this thing? Looks cool as hell and some of the monster designs give me a bit of a Giger vibe if for no other reason than the psychosexual overtones. Gameplay vids look pretty cool, too, but I can't stand that guy's voice.

>> No.22400500

My thoughts are "holy shit that's a lot of people that were waiting for the second gameplay vid because 50k in a single night WTF."

Bumping this thread since the janitor deleted the recent one, I dunno why

Anyone else ignored the resin ladies and went for resin paul the survivor?

No. I put in $210+ so far, just for all the plastic ladies.

I didn't even get the game.

I will wait until it goes mainstream and buy one.

OK, so who here is getting the extra armor sets, which kind, and how many? I know I'm getting all of the gameplay stuff, but seeing as this is my first foray into miniatures I was thinking of getting some of the bulk packs should I want to use them as proxies for other games.

>> No.22404049

This game is looking great awesome. The Hunt phase surprised me, I was expecting more of a bookwork set-up phase. I like the little to-and-fro play you do with the monster on the track.

It doesn't ship until November. You're saving no money by buying it now, $200 now is worth a lot more than $200 a year from now.

>> No.22404277

I can't speak for everyone, but like the earlier anon said, I was waiting for that second gameplay video to help me convince myself to drop $500 on a board game in one go.

I was already planning on buying the game and all the expansions.

Now I'm thinking about going Survivor and getting fifty of those face stand thingies.

>You're saving no money by buying it now
The expansions themselves will cost $225 more after the kickstarter is over, not to mention whatever the RRP of the base game is, and the lack of an easy survivor level pledge.

>> No.22404361

And if it has to be shipped it might be even more than the $0 in-America, flat $45 everywhere else. Plus you get to be the first to play it, which is ultimate nerd-cred for any game.

>> No.22404369

Kingdom Death: Monster? More like Kingdom Death: Monster Hunter, amirite?

No seriously its like Grimdark Monster Hunter: The /tg/ and I'm loving it.

>> No.22404412

Well, to be fair, to get the game you need to spend ~$100, plus $45 shipping if outside the United States, or $30 shipping if in Canada.

>> No.22404427

Yeah. Personally, I don't care about any of that. I've looked at the game, and from the gameplay videos, mechanics, and content that's been shown and discussed by the creator, I'm 100% certain that I will enjoy the fuck out of this game.

I wouldn't have spent a single cent on it otherwise, and because of that there was no reason to get anything less than all expansions.

>> No.22405215

For me, knowing the major gameplay expansions are done was actually kind of a relief. Now I know exactly how much I want to spend.

>> No.22405276

>For me, knowing the major gameplay expansions are done was actually kind of a relief. Now I know exactly how much I want to spend.
I agree with this. Between that and the second gameplay video, it pretty firmly cemented my pledge amount. Though I did pick up the new stretch goal, since it's got promo game content. I can't resist that.

Same reason I got Holiday Nico.

>> No.22405296

I hope the promo events/whatever else are available online later, if only in text-form.

>> No.22405321

Game looks solid, as long as it has (and keeps producing) tons of content. The characters seem a bit lacking in variety though, with only 2-3 stats, and a detailed health and status system. The gear might make up for that, but how much? Also breaking apart models for gear changes seems like a pain.

Also: DEM SCULPTS and DAT AESTHETIC. Debating on whether to rape my wallet with this now.

>> No.22405353

>The gear might make up for that, but how much?
Most of the character advancement is said to come from gear, though it's clear that some will come from civilization advancements as well.

Poots has said a few times that revealing too much would be spoilers that he wants to avoid, but there was mention, for example, of character abilities that would allow you to peek at the next monster AI card.

>> No.22405774

I was pretty much 90% sure of my pledge before the second video because the models at all these costs were worth it to me. The second the 2nd gameplay video came out I was further sold on teh game upped my pledge. I know it sounds bad but I hope we don't meet that many more goals, This is like my christmas present for this past year and this future year to myself I don't want to have to throw too much more money at the screen. *getting every Pin up just for display and all expansion*

>> No.22405820

It'll probably meet another goal or two at this rate. It's now the weekend AND the last minute AND the second gameplay video was released AND there was another expansion which has a ridiculous amount of content to it.

>> No.22405911

Yeah I know, I'd complain about the wallet hit but eh it doesn't cure anything, and i'm going to buy it anyways.

>> No.22405999

Looks like a barrel of fun, but how much is this shit going to cost, exactly? Looks like a lot of high-detail minis involved.

>> No.22406013

The game with no frills is around $100. The game with all ten expansions and all current content is closer to $500.

After the kickstarter, it will be closer to $800 or $900.

>> No.22406039

$800/900 with the frills, that is.

>> No.22406068

Right. The expansions themselves will cost over $200 more, and the base game will likely see a similar price increase.

>> No.22406090 [SPOILER] 

Yeah. Its mentioned that that was the major influence. Also, warhammer quest.

I'm going to be working on reworking the fluff, renaming a few cards, and proxying in EVERYTHING, so I can actually play with family.

My father would seriously love the gameplay in this, and I would rather not give him a heart attack by sending him up against pic related.

>> No.22406109

I'll probably be working on an online solution (if a proper engine is available) shortly after the game arrives. I'm going with $420 dollars for survivor+all expansions, so the only things that will be missing are Nico's settlement event, and the Candy challenge scenario.

>> No.22406116

Well shit, this game is going to be extremely niche.

>> No.22406122

I'm sure people would be willing to provide scans easily enough.

Hell, I would, though I'll probably be more interested in playing alone than online.

>> No.22406130

>Well shit, this game is going to be extremely niche.
It's still a more competitive price than the offerings of a company like Games Workshop.

Sure, it's expensive, but even at current prices, the cost per model is quite low compared to GW minis, especially when you consider the size of some of them, or the Survivor level extra minis.

>> No.22406132

>My father would seriously love the gameplay in this, and I would rather not give him a heart attack by sending him up against pic related.
Super Dungeon Explore is somewhat similar while work/parents safe (unless they are allergic to anime).

>> No.22406175

The flexibility of this site (http://roll20.net/) looks like it'd be for KD, providing the 'GM' has the game, and the time to integrate scans of the cards and pics of the minis into it.

>> No.22406191

>> No.22406203

Vassal would probably work pretty well for it too, it can easily do main and sideboards, it would actually be quite easy, minus getting all of the scans and information entered.

>> No.22406230

Yeah, but I remember trying and failing to use Vassal one time, plus the campaign setup of roll20 seems better for keeping a settlement going over weeks, months or even years.

>> No.22406248

Rules look a little simplistic and not tactically minded enough to justify the price drop

>> No.22406264

True, that might be the case.
I haven't even used Vassal that much, but I made a Gears of War module for it to play with a friend at one point... something like KDM would be even easier, I think.

Poots says the next goal gets added to Herald of Death pledges!

>> No.22406441

It's been suggested that there are things like the ability to look at (and possibly manipulate) the monster's AI deck, survival points to perform extra actions, consumable items and equipment that can be used on your turn, and possibly the ability to force or tactically use critical hits to weaken the monster and so on.

Unfortunately, Poots doesn't really seem too keen on sharing a lot of this stuff because he doesn't want to have spoilers.

Multiple decks, with different requirements to draw from them. So, the most aggressive deck can only be drawn from by either a bit of luck, or by going through another deck first.

It also allows for more reflexive actions among the creature as it can draw from different emotions as a response to different actions

>Dung Beetle Knight $25 (One of the best looking minis, and seems to have some very nice innovations tied to it)

>The Lantern Festival $45 (Greatly lengthens the game, offering Watcher armor, and a few extra bosses)

>Sunstalker $45 (Adds an entirely new campaign to the game)

>Gorm OR Spidicules $40 (both are major game expansions that added armor sets to the game. Which to go with is based on your personal preference)

>Flower Knight $15 (is $15)

>This comes out to $300 total, which gets you the Manhunter and the Lion Knight expansions for free.

>It also allows for more reflexive actions among the creature as it can draw from different emotions as a response to different actions
To an extent, that does happen. Enemies can be crippled and change their actions by damage or a loss of limb, and it stands to reason that harder monsters could have an altogether different reaction based on circumstance.

It's in the gameplay footage, when you damage, you flip a hit location card to find out where it hit. If it's a critical (or if you do enough damage?) that location can be wounded, cut off, etc.

One of the cards that was shown for the lion was an attack card where it does a swipe with its claws. If its paw was missing though, it instead swings at the survivor with its bloody stump, doing no damage, but causing a little bit of insanity damage.

Hey, don't get me wrong, "nignog" is probably the most adorable way of referring to a black person I've heard, and I'm not even sure you mean a black person. It could somehow refer to Koreans possible.

>> No.22407280


Arright. Let me throw my blubborous body and my two cents in here.

"Swag" is what's called a plural noun, and it is also a mass noun. It is for something good, but you do not have a "swag of something" - it is not a unit of measurement or a specific amount, like a grouping. It is not interchangeable with other words like "head" or "pile." Allow me to explain:

You don't have odds and ends ofshit on your shelf; You have odds and ends on your shelf.

You don't have a swag of shit in your loot bag; You have swag in your loot bag.

Even if it does fail in every aspect of being a playable game, some of us still get some gorgeous miniatures to add to our collections for a fairly decent price given the quality.

I just can't justify dropping $350 on this thing. There is not enough information on the gameplay. I could buy seven copies of Fury of Dracula for that price, for crying out loud.

That's a flimsy counterpoint that needs to stop right now. It's extraordinarily subjective and nobody seems to have the capacity to understand that. Yeah, nearly all tabletop games use randomization. Not many implement mechanics where you instantly lose after a couple poor rolls in a row. You mention strategy. Yeah, overarching strategy should win out. That's clearly not the case here. You tweak some stat lines and pray the dice work out. By anyone with a brain's standards the gameplay looks shoddy as all fuck, and that's what makes these threads so ridiculous.

>> No.22410840


You want me to elaborate then fine. Let's start with the basics. He spends an entire video essentially showing off how early on two bad rolls in a row can lead to your character instantly dying. Even if it was only one bad roll, you would be in awful shape. So, the first clear point is that early game you are completely at the mercy of the dice and the randomly drawn AI cards. Your victories aren't going to be won through strategy but luck. The way AI cards cycle and get repeated does not change that they are still done so in a random order, and a couple bad dice simply end it for you. Likewise a couple lucky dice can win it instantly. If you take joy in winning by luck alone I can see this being fun I suppose. So is Monopoly in that sense.

But let's go further. The more recent shit. In an attempt to appear as though there's some semblance of player agency you have the settlement, crafting and gear mechanics. As I said this is clearly just fiddly crap that doesn't look as though it will counterbalance the randomness. Poots tries to pitch it all as a "puzzle" within the overarching game. That's a joke. The major encounters and events that decide what happens to your characters are still heavily randomized. Didn't research a specific trait that would counteract this random encounter? Hey fuck you then. Besides, this could, metagame wise, play out one of two ways. There are enough random events that you simply can't plan for any given one and you're just flying blind. Or, there are so few that it's predictable and you follow the same path in terms of research and gear every time. "I need this monster bait for an encounter I know will happen, but we never got the chance to make it. Oh well."

You can see him TRYING to add depth to it, and that's what's fooling you. The problem is he keeps drifting back to randomization being too heavy a factor negating it all and turning it into a fiddly mess instead of an elegant strategic amalgam like he wants it to be.

Let me let you in on something; what's he's saying is not ok. It is the fucking definition of BAD GAME DESIGN. He clearly does not know what he's doing.

You do know that you can spend a Survival Point to negate an attack right? And you start off with at least one.

Furthermore dying doesn't seem to be that much of a setback, seeing as how your settlement has at least 4 more people to replace dead characters with. At the very least it means you can completely wipe at least once and not have the game end there and then. The big 'advancement' mechanic seems to be equipment, which can be given to a fresh character, and 'veteran' characters that survive multiple fights only get more survival and insanity points.

Not that anon, but... as I recall the video made that sound like it was always the best option, i.e. a no-brainer.

Personally, though, the thing most off-putting about the gameplay description is the campaign-ness of it. Getting people together for that many seqeuntial games ain't necessarily easy.

The way I'd like to fluff Survivors dying and being replaced with new Survivors using the exact same gear is basically the Curse of the (Un)dead. That way you can continue your character, and not mutilate the model in the process trying to unassembling it..

its not neccesary at all, players can coem and go, but the survivors remain, and could happily be played by anyone., though a continual group would be different, bringing new players in randomly to swap old players also works fine, as there is no "roleplaying" and they could mix-match equipment willy-nilly.

>> No.22411137


For that specific aspect of the gameplay, yes. In fact it's such a damn no brainer that there will obviously be cards that actively discourage it by saying "if there's a character behind the monster it hits them." More randomization you can't account for. Either monster AI is so predictable in its attack patterns that you go through the appropriate motions and hope the dice rolls bear out, or it's randomized and you just crawl up its ass...and hope the dice bear out alongside the card draws. Fun fun.

There's discussion in the video regarding positioning to gain advantages. I don't see the lack of strategy you're seeing..

As a game designed to be player versus board, it's pretty common to have it be hard mode. In a sense, it's the nature of the beast. It's one of the reasons why I asked you of your opinion on "Shadows Over Camelot" and the Knizia's "Lord of the Rings." Even "Pandemic" taunts the players with its difficulty.

> learn what random bullshit you may or may not see.

..I can't tell you how much random bullshit will pop up in all manner of games that one may or may not see. The "fog of war" happens even in real life. I'm not sure how you go about it but if nothing ever blindsides you, I wish I had your eyes.

> It's artificially complex and still suffers from severe and unpredictable gameplay.

I kind of expect it to be unpredictable when I have no experience with it..

>Stop trying to justify bad design.

I'm mostly trying to understand your PoV and provide counterpoint in order to help qualify it.


I can think of quite a number of games you'd hate. I'm going to chalk it up that this gameplay type is simply not for you. Thanks for taking the time to discuss your opinion though.

>how easy is it to persuade people to join you in playing Chapter 5: The Anteloping?
I wouldn't know, ask your own friends.

But really, there'd be no problem. Survivors are more of a resource than "This is my one super-important character." Sure, names are encouraged so that you become more attached to them, to make losing them more disheartening, but in the end they're all interchangeable. It might be a bit harder for someone new to the game to fight the ultimate rapelord, but there's no real barrier to them jumping right in.

>> No.22411320


Not a single bit of that is justification. I already stated that the way this is presented reeks of just being poorly thought out, and is ultimately exemplary of bad design. Randomization isn't inherently bad as a concept. An encounter that's completely randomized isn't bad in an of itself. It's bad when it produces something you have no way of dealing with or are forced to rely entirely upon good luck to beat. Randomization should serve to mix things up and present you with something that's unexpected, but you still have the capacity to deal with by way of your own ability. Using multiple dice for a single roll immediately changes things because suddenly you have averages to work off of when considering numbers. This game uses single dice. Having a variety of skills and options to utilize to maximize efficiency is good. This game has equipment as a bunch of numbers and minute effects that pad your base numbers to hopefully counteract the random attacks you'll experience.

That's what's not sinking in for you people. That's the subjectivity. You can't say "well almost all games use randomness and dice." No shit they do, it's all about how they're used. What's been shown with Kingdom Death is a blatant lack of understanding with this stuff. It's a simple minded approach desperately trying to be complex and just making a mess of itself. No fundamentally sound concepts have been shown, only ideas that have terrible implementation into the actual gameplay.

>> No.22411355

So characters are sinners woken up in hell? Needs some sort of a system for perks or skills, resembling memories of their past. Some wake up without memories and tend to be pretty normal or good, but they don't remember anything. Other wake up with limited or full memories of previous lives and tend to be bastards or traitors with useful skills.

>> No.22411370

And you're missing the hints about the other aspects of gameplay that, while not directly stated, have been strongly hinted at. Usage of survival points at key moments, manipulation of critical hits to disable powerful enemy attacks, abilities that allow players to definitely peek at and possibly manipulate the enemy AI deck, consumable and usable items with various effects, and so on. All things that have been briefly touched upon at one point or another, and all things that add more depth to the combat system.

But whatever, keep telling everyone else how they just don't understand and how "it's really just run at the monster and roll dice, really! You've got to believe me, you all know nothing!"

I'm definitely getting the Dragon King but I'm not sure whether to get some of the limited pin-ups (especially with challenge scenarios) or more expansions (the Flower Knight is really good value). I reckon I'll go for the TNA and sell it on in a few months for profit. Christmas Nico is one, anyone know what the other ones are?

Idiocy deserves criticism. You don't pretend you're aloof and move past it, that's the mindset of an asshole psuedo-intellectual. You argue in hopes that maybe it will spark some modicum of critical thought. It's a bad looking board game, and shouldn't get the mindless support that it is. It's reinforcing bad concepts, bad design, and is alltogether silly. Jesus christ people just be more critical of your shit and more intelligent with your money.

Oh I agree but I don't see what you're seeing as completely random. It's like a wargame, where you improve your changes through maneuver but your results may vary. Certainly being better equipped and experienced will help.

I can't say if the game works or is broken based on what's shown so far but it seems to work okay -yet the details that are only hinted at could break things.

>When you're about to get fucked you use your get out of jail free card. Disable the widget the monster uses for his big attacks. It's only meaningful if you've got to put thought into it.

Similar to the Merlin card in "Shadows Over Camelot" actually. Like the Merlin card, there are different ways in which you can use that "get out of jail free" card. It's a judgment call on how to use it.

>These threads are orgies of stupidity because people laud the gameplay

Wait. I thought you were complaining earlier that these threads were nothing but people cheering for tits and ass? Well... I guess it doesn't matter.

Well, I think it has potential and I'd like to see some diversity, so I put some money in it. I've bought many games that are considered popular with the BGG community. Some of which have characteristics that match what you don't like about Kingdom Death.. Time will tell if it stands up or not.

Insanity is a double edged sword.
Insanity actually counts as ARMOR against anything that would cause brain damage.

Take too much brain damage, and you start developing disorders which give you less control over the Survivor, and makes them do stupid shit, like devouring all of your consumables. INCLUDING THE PARASITE RIDDLED ORGAN THAT EVERY MONSTER DROPS. FUCKING RETARDS.

However, if you have too much insanity, certain settlement events will cause them to go apeshit and fuck up your settlement, and some monsters have things that specifically affect insane survivors.

It takes a MINIMUM of 3 settlement phases (roll 1d10 for each lantern year that has passed. If its 21+, you jump into a nemesis encounter) before you face a random encounter. If you fight any monster during that time, the 'timer' resents.

Yes, fighting nothing but random monsters will leave your fate to the dice and you will eventually die horribly to it.

Thats the ENTIRE FUCKING POINT. DON'T DO THAT. You have to go out there and hunt them YOURSELF, which is NOT randomized, and even lets you choose the difficulty level of the monster you fight. This gives you far more control over what you are fighting, and makes you far more likely to survive.
