Sup guys,

let's have one of those. As we all heard the release date has been delayed.

What are your thoughts on the current development of the project, your hopes and your fears?
I also heard that many of you got to back for Kingdom Death, while being newbs to tabletop. Most peculiar, how did you even find out about the project and what made it stand out for you?

Honestly, having bought some of his pre-kickstarter products before and given poots dedication to a quality product, I don't really have any worries, just that it isn't going to get here sooner.

>I also heard that many of you got to back for Kingdom Death, while being newbs to tabletop.

Was never really a noob to tabletop, just a newb to miniatures I guess. I remember seeing some art floating around for some of his older products on /tg/, did some clever internet searching, found his site and was just fell in love with his vision and setting.

Monster Hunter meets Civilization in the setting from Dark Souls.

Kill monsters, shred the corpses, use those resources to make new armor and discover new shit to get bonuses, build up a settlement, then cower in fear and die a bunch and more and more monsters get attracted to your growing settlement, leaving you trying to win a battle of attrition.

Here are the gameplay videos that the creator posted. First one is of combat, second one is of building up the settlement and hunting down a monster, as well as building upon character creation and combat a bit more.



If you plan on playing the game IRL, it will be another half year, and cost you $200. $1k easy if you want to get the expansions. Which is why I'm gonna work on putting it in VASSAL, Lackey, or OCTGN (still undecided, but leaning towards VASSAL. Maybe Lackey if it gets some better support for campaigns)

I think it's important to note that in the vanilla game box you get /a lot/ of stuff.

Ignore the last two boxes near the bottom as those were only for the kickstarter pledges anyways.

>> No.27407449

Traps.... thats a verry good question. No comment from the creator. Probably could with the right innovations though?

Also, lanterns seem to be the equivalent of souls. There is no natural light in the setting. The settlement is built around a horde of lanterns that the survivors discovered, and your starting characters each have a lantern. But if you LOSE a lantern, its pretty much a death sentence.

Quite a few of the monsters also mimic lantern light, to lure in people to attack them.

I think its important to mention that that ISN'T the vanilla game box. You still get a LOT of stuff, but not nearly that much.

The only monsters present in the kickstarter that have crafted genetalia are the gorm, the scribe, and the lion god. That's three, three monsters out of nineteen.

Oh are you offended already.

>I'm not prudish by any means but that's almost every monster in the setting

Yes ,you are. You were even so outraged that you developed a highly selective view. As a anon pointed out, in Kingdom Death: Monster there are actually very few monsters designed with genitalia (which is not a horrible thing to do per se btw). The majority lacks any sexual iconography.
But hey, I guess you don't wanna hear that. Your opinion is irreversible and you wanted to share your anger about some tits with us.

>> No.27414728

>If you don't love it you can't have an opinion.

Real logical, some of the miniatures are indeed very pretty, however for the most part I'm not a fan and I certainly don't think the game itself looks good.

Might pick up some of the more ornamental models at retail to paint and display but that's as far as it goes with the setting for me.

Oh also the sunstalker definitely has a massive penis out the front, and some semblance of monster boob. I'm not too sure what the other 15 are though as they don't seem to be showing on the pledge calculator. Unless for some reason you're counting human form dragon king and the man hunter as monsters which is clearly just trying to make the proportion of these monsters work in your favour.

>> No.27414746

Oh please you're just trying to pigeonhole me into that niche so you can discount a very fair point, if nothing else the hands thing alone is too much by itself. Even someone else who clearly loves the setting can see that:

I never said you couldn't have an opinion, however, seeing as yours is mostly negative and based off of general ignorance and a general dislike of well... everything about it, I'm failing to see why you're still here.

You're welcome to have your opinion, this game obviously isn't going to appeal to everybody and that's fine, but there's better places and better ways to express it than further derailing the pretty rare kingdom death thread with your shitposting.

Let's all just get along (´・ω・`)

and post more cheesecake.

>> No.27416301

Honestly it looks like the cheesecake is the problem 9/10 times. Very few people seem to dislike the game, but the cheesecake and wet nurse cause shitstorms without fail.

Manhunter IS a monster though. Its hard to count a ten foot tall, faceless creature, as something other then a monster. Human mode dragon just counts as the same monster as dragon king though. Its just a proxy piece to my knowledge.

Sunstalker, Gorm, and Lion God are anatomically correct. The scribe is as well, but all those pieces are optional bits.

But those are all expansion monsters. The CORE GAME is very good at keeping out T&A, if your problem is the sexual horror, just dont get the expansions that display it. Or dont get the game at all, if you dislike it that much.

But complaining about it on a message board where your opinion doesnt even have a name tied to it to associate with it, instead just being a bit of hate towards the game floating around, is kinda silly. mind you! you are a lot more articulate then most of the people who come in here just to post how much they dislike the game, so thanks for that.

>> No.27416592

>the cheesecake and wet nurse cause shitstorms without fail.

I don't want to say that the game was founded on cheesecake, but sexuality seems to be a core aspect of the games setting. Not that sexuality is a bad thing in any sense, but people seem to equate it to sexualization, objectification, etc. and start vilifying it.

> mind you! you are a lot more articulate then most of the people who come in here just to post how much they dislike the game, so thanks for that.

Agreed, I just wish people would do a little more research into what they are arguing about before complaining about it. It's okay to not like the game, but it's not okay to dislike the game and then publicly debase it based off of ignorance or some perceived notion that every model is covered in dicks.

>> No.27416639

>I don't want to say that the game was founded on cheesecake, but sexuality seems to be a core aspect of the games setting.
This is very true. But all of that, at least as far as I have seen, have been through the monsters. Humans display very little sexuality, and when they do, its from mimicing a monster (like the dragon armor).

Thats why the pinups aren't canon. The humans we have seen just don't dress like that in the setting, with the exception of white speakers, which are heavily implied to be working AGAINST other humans, and thus probably fall into the 'monster' category.

And yes, having the people trying to detract from the game be able to form sentences properly is very refreshing.

>> No.27418365

It comes from a multitude of places I think. What underlies most debates on political correctedness (I dislike calling it "social justice", as it's nothing of the sort), is the idea that the definition of what's socially acceptable can be changed - and generally, should be changed in such a way as to avoid causing harm to people, whether emotional or physical. Of course, the fundamental sticking point is on what causes harm? But it essentially comes out of a positive wish to help people, which is why it's pervasive (and why it's sometimes vocalized so self-righteously).

But it still bugs me, you know? Why the hell did he though she needed to show flesh? They are in an apocalyptic world in which fucking lions and giant babies are out there to eat you, and she decides to show flesh instead of protecting herself. I repeat, is not that bad, but it's still a bit stupid.

Kickstarters are made to run a set period of time. The creator can make multiple "pledge" levels that people are able to back at, but people can also pay MORE then that, if they wish.

Once the time runs out, if the creator has reach the funding goal they set, then all people who backed it are charged however much they pledged. If they don't reach it, no one gets charged. After that, no one is able to back it, and it is up to the project creator to set up a means of sale, using the funding of their backers.

No, it's not. Technically, after years of grueling combat against horrible monsters leaving numerous people in your village maimed and scarred, you have the opportunity to kill the one horrendous monster that does horrible things to your people specifically, but the most likely thing then is for some other horrible monster to come in and rape and murder/eat/enslave/all of the above your village at a later date.

>> No.27426020


You're quite wrong.

The difference between any classic comedy and tragedy is where things end up. Ancient comedies also had to think about where they started.

Ancient Grecian comedies were about small men becoming great through fate, and their tragedies great men becoming small through defying fate.

The forms evolved over time, particularly in how people got from good to bad or bad to good. Fate was no longer compulsory as the cause. Theatre stopped being a pure religious-moral lesson and became more and more for entertainment. This also meant that stories became more powerful emotionally, because this became their goal.

By the Shakespearian time a comedy more or less meant a show where circumstances leave the main characters better off. They also tended to be absurd, and over time the absurdity became the meaning of the term. It is only in very recent years the word comedy has meant 'funny'.

Tragedy was far more resilient, and meant a great man becoming small, usually through hubris, even for most of the last century. Despite furtive efforts earlier, it wasn't until Death of a Salesman that changing the premise was generally accepted, in that case taking away the great man falling low and replacing it with a small man failing to achieve anything of worth and then losing everything anyway.

So the difference between the Tragedies and Comedies is that they are tragedies following the tragic forms and comedies following the comic forms.

Recasts are more time consuming, and require you to remake the mini entirely every time you want to change it, but there is less room for error. Likewise, magnetizing is much quicker and requires you to only prep each piece once and then you can swap it out in seconds, however, it has more room for error and you can destroy minis if you do it wrong.

thats why you recast everything once, then magnetize the recasts, leaving the originals as display pieces

i know it attracts trolls. And I'm not zealous about the game. I just really like arguing. Helps me blow off some steam.

But really, they DONT have anything to do with the game. They are there because the sculptor can pretty much leave at any time and still get work, but he likes titties so poots keeps him passified with fan art, which the guy then sculpts, and poots sells for extra funding.

They aren't included in the game. They don't exist in the games canon. They are a completely seperate product line. They don't have any game rules. They cant be used in the game in any manner other then a proxy piece, or as some kind of homebrew. They aren't even compatible with the other armor kits or each other.

I don't know, I feel like you're right and wrong at the same time. On the one hand, you've got the majority of the pinups, and on the other hand, you've got things like Nico, Lantern Festival girl, and Dragon Sacrifice which are most certainly part of the game's world, despite not having rules.

They're certainly not as unrelated as a 40k miniature, or as different as 4e and Magic, but more importantly, they're simply not a problem. That's just my take on it, but it's a little tiring seeing people argue from that angle.

See the baby-slippers guy at the bottom? He's the boss. He is THE boss. He is the god of the setting and everything happens because he simple wills it into existance. The players start out waking up in a pitch black nothingness, knowing nothing and can't even speak (speech is an invention once you can research once you have a settlement). The ground they are standing on are covered by stone faces, stretching out in every direction. Everyone only has a piece of cloth and a lantern, the latter is supposedly their soul or a representation of it. The objective is to survive, which is a hard task as the humans are at the bottom of the food chain.

Monsters lurk in the crushing, infinite darkness, ready to pounce, kill and devour any humans they come across. If you manage to kill a monster you can tear up its corpse and fashion equipment, weapons and armor out of it. There is no 'natural' source of metal to mine. Every scrap of metal comes from extinguished lantern hoards or from certain defeated foes. Bone and leather have to suffice to start with.

you are not that group of humans. You were just a bunch of meat sacs he dropped in the middle of nowhere for monsters to eat, so they dont get hungry and start eating his precious worker drones.

That video of the guy who magnetized one of the KD minis, while he did it relatively successfully, you could see how the arm would just spin around really easily, and was generally loosely attached.

True, but that was a pin-up, if I recall correctly. Plus the arms of the various armors will be made to sit in one pose very well.

It was a pinup, but the size of the joints will still be fairly small. Also, it's not really the pose that's the problem, it's the fact that two small magnets have low grip on each other. Even with something like magnetizing crisis suit weapons, with relatively large magnets, still slides a bit at times if it's not completely perfect.

I'm not saying it won't work or can't be done, it's just touchy.

But women can't rape women.

>fat men in a bannanna hammock is perfectly acceptable
Um, what? Male nudity is considered much more offensive than female. You can show boobs and camel toe before you could show even a concealed schlong.

The key word there is 'fat'. If it's a fat man in a speedo, it's humor. If it were a regularly-bodied, or fit man- or (dare I say) a young boy, then it'd be too scandalous for out precious American eyes.

>About as frequently as an image of a sexy girl is used as a lead-in for every other thread (read: all the damn time)
You mean, men are drawn to images of attractive women? It's almost as if we're mammals, or something.
