New update, and holy shit, the giant Phoenix is getting the hard plastic treatment! PVC was mentioned as a possible material choice in a previous update. Just look at all that detail! It makes me really happy that I'm getting two of those.

Also, reopened pledge manger soon, fellow stalkers.
>Pledges Re-Opening
>Let me just say thank you to all the people interested in more plastic via the kickstarter! We will re-open pledges but it has to wait until we have bandwidth to devote to your needs.

And one more thing in the update: 8 pinups collection in hard plastic, including promo gear and settlement event. In the words of Dr Weird: DAMNIIIIIT! I didn't intend to buy any pinups but... rules! Gear!

They raised 5200% of their initial goal in funds. And since the maker doesn't seem to have run to Tahiti, you better believe it's happening.

Of course it is. The game was funded nearly 60 times over. International shipping will more than likely be a thing, with an increased cost, I'm sure.

You'll be paying a lot, though, and not just for shipping. MSRP is planned to be double the kickstarter price on many things.

>> No.30775990

Well yeah, Poots (the dude running this thing) has said that the final deadline is Q2 this year. I would expect the boxes to arrive in june or something like that. There have been lots of shots of hard plastic minis, so it's moving along quite nicely it seems.

Speaking of gruesome however...

That sounds wonderfull!

So, anyone can explain me how the game would be played like?

Last time I've heard it was going to be like monsterhunter and darksouls: the board game.

>> No.30776242

The kickstarter page has some brief gameplay samples that you should probably watch. You have various phases where you develop your settlement by spending the resources from hunting monsters, random events occur, the survivors send out a hunting party and events happen while you track a monster, then you actually fight it.

Combat looks to be your average tactical combat, the monster has a deck of AI cards that also represent its life. As it becomes wounded, it has less options available to it. More predictable, but it could get stuck doing one nasty attack over and over.

From speculation, it seems like there will be ways to look at and manipulate the AI deck as well.

>> No.30776269


Oh, they included more characters to choose? or we can only choose between 4 characters?

>> No.30776292

There aren't really characters, just some designs for minis and heads. The characters are your own creation (and in fact giving them a name so that you can be more attached to them when they die grants you a small stat bonus).
If there were only 4 characters, this would be a very short game. Because they'd fucking die.

Dammit. Although, that is interesting. I was wondering how they would handle cards that don't affect actual gameplay, like Nico was supposed to have. The genderswap belt doesn't seem to have an actual impact on the gameplay with its effect, but still does /something/. Interesting take on it.

And to make it not be a total waste of space, it still has gear-links. I think this is actually the first time we are seeing green ones.

>> No.30776677

Fuck. Every time. I did not know it was possible to wince that hard.

Thats pretty much exactly what its going to be like, yeah. With some civ building elements for character advancement.

The Rawhide Headband we saw. Lets you look at the top card of the AI deck.

Characters aren't set, like in Descent, or similar games. You build them yourselves. They just gave us four 'unique' minis to start with. They are also including 12 extra unique heads to use for making your mini.

The game uses 'armor kits' which come with parts to make 4 minis of that set of armor. 2 male, 2 female. However, every single armor kit is compatible with each other, so you can swap around heads/legs/arms/torsos/etc. to customize the mini.

The exception is the Green Knight armor, which in game, can't be used with other armors, so they didn't make its mini armor kit compatible.

Core game? Without a doubt.
Expansions? Probably.
Promos? Maybe not.

I don't think so? We certainly haven't seen any that do. That's just speculation from the typical "MONSTER RAPE FETISH GAME" crowd that likes to take part in these threads.

I COULD possibly see that being the case for something like the Grand-Mother, and even then probably only for targeting, but she isn't a part of the game, so probably not.

>> No.30776715

Its just a VERY badly named mechanic. Its a population growth table, that's it. At the start of each lantern year (basically, each session), you roll on a table to see if your population increases, stays the same, or decreases, and if any of the new survivors have any special abilities. That's... pretty much the extent of the table, at least as far as we have seen.

The game DOES have some pretty messed up stuff in it, but in depth sex scenes is not one of those things.

>> No.30776732

Yeah, how else will you replace the horribly mauled and killed survivors if you don't have children?

And its NOT that kind of game. Its a fucked up game, with lots of gore, and enough sick fetish shit to make Slaanesh smile. But what it ISN'T, is explicit about those things.

So like I said. This game has sick shit in it, and a lot of it is fetish shit. But actual sex scenes are not something in the game.

That's actually a really good point... I wonder what happens if a white speaker gets a belt of gender swap? Would be a neat character concept.

Like this:

Did you already forget what happens to Kickstarters that display any content like that? They get nothing but trouble, something that Poots neither needs nor wants. It's the same reason a number of monsters were left out of the game during the Kickstarter, why the Watcher was censored, or why the Illuminated Lady was a hidden, unofficial addon.

>> No.30776920

The beef is generally that the nay-sayers seem to think there is nothing else in the game but fetishes. There really is a game that seems very interesting to many of us. Though if the detractors really are offended by the contents and some of the themes, then that is unfortunate.They are not wrong for feeling weirded out/thinking it's gross/whatever, but I do think they may miss out on a potentially interesting game.

Oh, I agree on that much, don't get me wrong. There's a very interesting world, and an incredible looking game here, and it's not SUPER RAPE FETISH FUEL LAND either.

I'm just sick of the equally retarded reaction to this as well, where people reply to those trolls and ignorant idiots with the equally unrealistic "Nuh-uh, this is a wholesome christian game, my uncle works for Poots, so here's a list of things that will NEVER EVER EVER be in KD ever!"

It's a dark horror survival game. The fetishy stuff comes mostly from early models, and the cheescake pinup 'bonuses' during the Kickstarter. The actual game won't have much in the way of cheescake, and a lot of the regular minis are pretty fucking sweet looking.

>The actual game won't have much in the way of cheescake

I wasn't saying that at all though.

You started picking a fight (or at least, continued an argument someone else made) over me saying that the Reproduction Table was just a poorly named mechanic. Which it IS. Its one of the LEAST 'fetish shit' parts of the game. We already know how it works for the most part, because Poots himself has told us that much.

We know exactly what the table is for and what it does, and I was replying to someone who was confused by what its name implies, more then what it actually does.

I KNOW that once the game leaves kickstarter, and Poots can fully fund it himself, it will probably get kicked up a few notches, because he won't have to follow any guidelines for content. But he is a decent buisness man who knows what the hell he is doing, and isn't about to shove fetish shit into the core game, reserving that for promo content and addons.

>> No.30777281

I'm so tempted to try and paint my minis in that style/scheme but I'm positive they'd look boring. Monsters would have more color to them, but the humans would be all marbley in color.

Why is that? Because you think that it should have a nice, pleasant, more wholesome name like "population growth table" because "reproduction table" has certain implications that might feel a little more unsettling? Yeah, I fucking thought so.

>> No.30777540

No. Because its named just for the sake of being ~*~Flavorful~*~ instead of using a name that conveys exactly what the mechanic is for. Which is bad game design.

Take DnD for example. The system has its faults (it has a LOT of them actually), but one of the things it did right was the fucking names made sense.

Fireball: You shoot a ball of fire.
Acid Spray: You spray acid.
Tenser's Floating Disc: A spell that creates a disc, that floats, and was created by a guy named Tenser.
Attack Bonus: The bonus you get on your attack rolls.

You shouldn't HAVE to explain a mechanic by going "Well, its CALLED this, but its really more like THIS." If you ever have to do that, you should almost always use the name of what it actually does.Doing otherwise bloats the rules, makes it more difficult to explain to others, and doesn't actually add anything to the game.

Kingdom Death in particular, looks like its going to be pretty fucking rules heavy, and if you can cut down the explanation needed for a mechanic just by changing its name, you should PROBABLY FUCKING DO THAT. Especially because with how magical realm the game already is, that name specifically just gives the wrong impression to people looking to play the game. It has nothing to do with how wholesome it is. This is not a family game. Not even fucking CLOSE. It has to do with the kind of message a mechanic conveys with its name.

You don't. The game doesn't use WYSIWYG. Its just peoples OCD wanting to have everything look like it 'should'.

What a lot of people are planning to do, is make 1 male and 1 female of each full set, and then take the remaining sets, and hold on to them, using them to build the gearsets of their favorite survivors after they die, and then just use them as proxies. Mechanically, your mini doesn't matter. Just shows where you are standing. Your actual gear is shown by what cards you have.

Alternatively, you could just make some forged copies to use.

>> No.30779709

The just revealed promo card is oversized.
The settlement events, innovations, AI cards and hit locations are dominion sized.
Resource cards are playing card sized, as are set bonuses. I think challenge scenarios will be as well?

There's been a lot of different types of card, along with non-final stuff, but if memory serves me correctly, Poots's reply when I asked about sleeves suggested that most of the game's cards would be euro, and that there would be a LOT.

Adam even specifically asked that people not buy as many expansions if they could help it, cause they WOULD be offered later, and the game was already getting so overfunded that it would be hard to deliver everything on time.

Which is exactly what happened. This kickstarter, while EXTREMELY well handled compared to others, is pretty much the exact reason you don't want stretch goals like that. I'd point to Hex as a good example of how to do it. Stretch goals are just "Things we will prioritize in getting into the game after release."

Sure they have the funding to do that, but they don't have the TIME. Each expansions added more time needed to playtest everything, which is whats been delaying the game so long.

The proper solution, imo, is to offer the expansions, but not directly. Instead, people could buy 'coupons' (at the kickstarter price) to let them get the expansions when they got released.

That would let the game still get shipped on time, the game would still raise the same amount of money, that money could still go towards the same product, but it also prevents delays.

Mine has tons. They have big sections for Reaper, GW, Warmahordes, WWII/Flames of Warand then a bunch of smaller sections for Battletech and other small games. I talked to the owner last week and he kickstarted the Robotech Tactics game and is getting half a dozen starter sets of it. And because the shop supports them, all of those games have communities that have events at the shop.

Good for you? Those all sound like established mainstream war games to me. My point was simply that this product's success won't be decided by how much retail shelf space it gets. It's an expensive as fuck boutique board game for people who actively seek out such things.

The pinup models are pretty cheesy, but most of the monsters are a breath of fresh air in a hobby that's still dominated by aesthetics from the 60's and 70's.

I know nothing about the board game, I just want the models.

While the game concept looks fun, it's too cheesecake for me to play with anyone. I would definitely change my tune if were just nudity and gore. But no - they're not just primitive or scantily dressed, they have to be weirdly hyper-sexualized in a way that sacrifices realism for what I can only describe as outdated conceptions of what is considered attractive. The whole 60's pin-up / action hero vibe clashes with the underlying themes of desperate survival, loss, mutilation and horror in a way that isn't haunting, disturbing, or engaging. The obviously intentional dissonance designed to provoke emotional reaction is well executed, but flawed in conception.
And it's not just the limited edition special optional pin-up models - this is something that runs through the entire work. All the tits and hips protruding. All the pecs and biceps bulging. The guys are aesthetic as fuark, and the women, by contrast, look like they've lived a life of luxury and have just enough body fat to be considered ideal, forty or fifty years ago. You can try to claim that they're trying to play into the whole barbarian/fantasy trope and subvert it with horror - but this medium isn't a good way of doing that. The barbarian/fantasy trope is wish fulfillment - a good way of exposing and denying common elements of that through horror is a good plan - except that the game is almost entirely mechanical, with what appears to be very little fluff-player interaction to drive the message through. There's not really a chance to establish the tropes the horror elements would dissolve, and when those tropes are dissolved, the mechanical effects take precedence over any flavor, due to the nature of the gameplay.
I think they had a great idea, but the addition of sexuality was poorly handled, and resulted in a confusing and distasteful mess, conceptually.

As a result, I'm really just here for the awesome monster art. Which is pretty fucking awesome.

Humanity struggles against monsters. Basic premise. Immediately alerts players to the narrative of the game.
Explorers venture out to gather supplies and fight horrors. Excellent.
Grow your small group of humans by succeeding at the previous step. Great mechanic builds on previous foundations.
Horror, death, and gore are to be expected. Tone of the game established , very doable in context of setting and mechanics.
As for the metaphysics - the gods are trying to wipe out humanity through inhuman abominations. Wow, it's even got a cool mythos attached.
Oh, and nearly all of the humans come straight from Frank Frazetta's illustrations. Wait, what? Why? How does this at all work? Is it for marketing? I mean, sure, some pandering is understandable - but the rest of the game sounds like a gritty horrorfest. This seems (to me, at least) like a completely different direction to take, especially given the rest of the game's (monster and setting) design. Body horror, psychological horror, death, and let's throw in some good old fashioned escapism - you know, soft curvy women (with huge TITS and ASSES) and some mysteriously beardless hunky dudes. It's bad when I have to hunt for a realistically norm-proportioned and/or practically dressed woman (leather thongs and string bikinis?).
Nudity is fine. Primitive clothing is fine. Even everybody-is-attractive is fine (marketing kills realism). But why is it a necessity for the women to be in provocative poses, shapely tits thrust forward, generous ass jutting out?

Do a google image search for "kingdom death" and tell me that the results you get weren't intended to be found erotic. Attached is an image of the basic female survivor, taken directly from the online store.

Uh, yes. Now women's ideal body fat is lower, and has been, since the mid 90's, thanks to heroin chic. Recently there's been a move towards fitness, and "toned" is more acceptable.

>> No.30794607

Yeah well they also don't take to paint particularly well either, people love the pretty renders, artwork and occasional unpainted model but just look at:

Face is clearly an uneven cast, surface details aren't pronounced enough meaning even extreme edge highlighting with NMM technique doesn't really make it pop.

Faces look derpy as fuck, cloth doesn't work on many of the models as the 'flow' is unnatural making it look like hard edged sheet plastic.

Looks incredibly flat, attempting to do a dark scheme to hide flaws with the model, minor attempts at OSL to add something to actually look at.

Just a mess, faces on the cloth stick out too far to try and add depth, ends up looking silly, it's essentially a ball of cloth with a few lamps and protrusions but of course as its from KD people are praising the fuck out of it.

Lets face it neckbeards just loves some tittys, that's fine I wouldn't deny them that but all the painting threads have shown none of them will be able to make these models look good, apart from maybe one or two exceptions. That combined with the game looking like a hot mess right now means fervent 'no poots is a genius because he does updates rabble rabble' replies are all you're going to get because they've invested too much in a mediocre product.

>> No.30794618

The core game comes with 7 big monsters, 28 human minis, rulebook, enough cards to overload a truck, and a game board for the price of about $200. It's not cheap, certainly not, but GW is still a hell of a lot more expensive at $35-$60 per big mini.

The surface detail comes out poor on a lot of minis, one good phoenix sprue and you think you're vindicated? Once the paint goes on it looks awful, same problem the Malifaux 2.0 plastics have the faces etc look fine on renders but they're too flat once the paint hits them.
