Previous thread is on it's last legs.

There has been some awesome news lately, so time for a KD:M General

>Gencon 2015 demo with TechRaptor
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T_Im2AaXK18 [Open]

>Gencon 2015 floor demo
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jtqvidHYXu8 [Open]

>Interview with Adam Poots
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y6wF8d-zUHw [Open]

>Tablet friendly Character Sheet, created by a KD:M Developer
This one is actually a prototype. Not supposed to have a public release yet. It doesn't work as well on PC because its meant for tablets, but you can increase/decrease your stats by clicking and dragging up or down on it.
Major News:
Shipping will happen in 3 waves.
Wave 1 is the promos and pinups, and will start shipping 2 days after gencon ends.
Wave 2 is the core game + Survivor pledge bonuses, and will be shipping once it gets through customs, probably late next month.
Wave 3 is the expansions and will ship once all the core games are sent out.

So who is going to cut up their rulebook for the glory of /tg/ so that sweaty neckbeards can play the game you paid so much for online for free?

I know a guy who owns a printing shop so he hooked me up for free.

Kinkos could do it, any printing shop really. It's not expensive. A 8.5 x 14 standard is $3 so I imagine you could put most of the big cards on two or three sheets and have them cut them for you. I only have a 1/2 cm instead of 1/4 inch or whatever border on mine though so they still fit in stuff.

There are going to be a fair amount of typos in the core game. There's an especially hilarious one in the book.

I mean, I work in a daycare, I can't imagine the looks I'd get if I brought that up while getting them done, but no one cares really. I live in a big city and people go to kinkos to print posters for kink parties.

People wake up fully grown in pitch darkness (if it wasn't for their lanters) on a cold stone floor shaped like faces, stretching out into infinity. They are attacked by a highly intelligent monster, have to defeat it. Survivors band together and travel, until they find a lantern hoard. That will be the basis of their settlement. You hunt monsters and scavange their corpses to get as much resources as possible, then use those to craft new gear, settlement locations, and innovations.

The game is divided in three parts. Settlement phase, Hunt phase, and Showdown phase. In the settlement phase you craft gear, innovate, develop new techniques, ideas, and philosophies you have to choose from. As an example: do you cannibalize your dead for extra resources, or do you bury them to develop your understanding and culture, which will help your settlement in other ways?

Next is the Hunt phase. A group of survivors set off to hunt a specific monster, be it a White Lion, Phoenix, Screaming Antelope, or any other of all monsters available. During the hunt you will trigger events which can either be beneficial or detrimental. You find some broken glass and twisted metal, do you follow it or leave it alone? Maybe you follow it and get lucky and find a pile of broken lanters, which gives you scrap metal to craft gear (if you survive the showdown phase), or maybe you take a wrong turn and end up wounded.

Last is the Showdown phase. Either you found the monster first or the monster found you, and now you have to fight it. The monster is lethal and difficult to kill, and is controlled by the AI and Wound deck which determines how it acts. There are mechanics that help the players influence the deck/s. The AI deck is the monsters hit points, and every monster has 25 AI cards. For each wound inflicted a card is removed, making the fight more and more predictable, but depending on the cards left it might get signifcantly harder or easier.

While it does look grotesque it's pretty much obviously sexualized.
'Normal people' without brain damage will be able to tell as much, by looking at the art for any of the female characters at least. Then add in the fact that the monsters are sexual organs thrown into a blender.
It's not like the sexual themes in Alien were missed by the mainstream either.

>Making it optional appeals to the desires and whims of the realm dwellers.
More like makes it 'okay' for the american market. The way you put it implies it wasn't intended to be magical realm-y.

I didn't know Alien was sexualized or had sexual themes until a few years ago.

I'm not saying everyone thinks that, but if I thought that then I was/is far from alone. Aliens (and KD) is more body horror genre for me.

That is the point of sexualized themes. It takes something comfortable and desired and turns it into something horrid and monstrous. If it makes you want it while it also being repugnant its doing its job especially well.

That is NOT true. Adam has specifically addressed this, and said he will NOT be doing this, because the bulk of the weight is not the minis, it is the cardboard tokens already in it + the 7000 or so cards. And the cost of the printing is the major money sink in it, the price difference between the two versions would be very negligable, and would NOT lower it to the 100 dollar price point people want.

What he IS planning to do, is offer an alternate starting point. A major expansion that has 2 or 3 monsters, a couple armor sets, and some settlement locations and events. Enough to run a mini campaign. It can be used standalone, or integrated into the core set as an expansion.

A lot of people are also guessing this set will have the PvP rules.

Sorry if this was evident to everyone except me.

>> No.41706178

Just a heads up, It will take a bit to mod KDM into it. I'll definitely post to /tg/ when its done though.

Another person emailed me after I mentioned it in the last thread, who is also 'all in' getting every bit of gameplay content. Having multiple people scanning cards should speed things up. But it will still take time

However there are a few things that may cause issues:
>The rulebook
This is the major one. No one really wants to debind their book to provide quality scans. I'm still trying to figure out what to do with that.

This boss has a WAY different base, in that he doesn't have one. Using tokens to represent the minis wont really be an option for him. I might be able to create a new model for him, which is a token for each of his legs, but I cant think of any solutions that actually would look nice.

This one is the one I'm least worried about. But the gameboard is very large and hard to scan. Worst case, you dont get the pretty game board, you just get a grid of the same size, that I threw together in those images.

Tabletop Sim mods aren't that hard if you have some basic 3d modeling software, and an image editor. But yes, it is a work in progress. I'm just setting up some basic stuff now, before I have cards to scan in. Thats why all the tokens are blank.

Also, not shown in that image, I have changed the texture for the tokens to now be grey in the front, dark grey on the sides, and black on the back. This is to show facing. The reverse of each token is greyscale and has a red ring around it, to indicate knockdown.

Dont forget he also had a FAILED kickstarter.

On his website, he used to have a roadmap for what he wanted to do with his Kickstarter to make it as successful as possible.

Start it on Black Friday, when people are of a mindset to spend a ton of money on good deals. Offer discounted levels for that day as well.

Have the campaign run through Christmas, where many backers will get an increase in money as gifts.

Run through New Years to get people ambitious to take on a big painting project.

He had already done 2 projects. One failed, and one that barely scraped by. He knew EXACTLY what he was doing, and how to make it sell on kickstarter. And it wasn't the Tits and Ass that everyone thinks it is. The tits and ass didn't even enter the campaign until it was already 300% funded.

Guy who totally caved, having missed the original kickstarter due to being enveloped in classes at the time, and not really being aware of kickstarter. I gotta say, I'm fucking hype for this, and so so lucky that the preorder sale was still going on. Unforunately, I feel like a fucking idiot having missed such beauties as the Lion, Dung and Flower Knight, and even the Slenderman stuff. I gotta ask, any hope that I'm gonna be able to aquire any of it? A Forasker model would be amazing too, even the Butcher. I want that White Knight model the most though.

All the expansions (including Lion, Dung, and Flower knight, and Slenderman) will be available on the Kingdom Death store after every backer has had their package sent. There's a pinup Forsaker model in the Pinups of Death collection on the store, the Butcher is part of the core game (table of contents for the core game here http://kingdomdeath.com/ks_images/text-box-contents.jpg).

>> No.41711375

I didn't kickstart it because it looked like there was way too much chessecake and repulsive stuff in it by the time I got to it. And to get the level of completion that I wanted would have been a big investment.

And now I've watched gameplay demos and seen more models and I want it. I wish I had gone in on the kickstarter.

But I'm not going to be preordering it now because $275 is a lot of money for missing out on a TON of stuff from the kickstarter. And I am ESPECIALLY not going to be paying the full $400 for it when it goes live.

So it's still the coolest, most beautiful game I will never own.

Honestly? Its quirky as hell. Its a simulator game, dont forget that. My regular game group spends a lot of time yelling at the physics engine, every time a card clips through the table, shoots off into outer fucking space, then respawns in the center of the table where it lands on top of a deck, automatically merging with the deck, making you spend 5 minutes looking around the table for it before you realize thats what happened.

Also just like in real life, dice fall under the table ALL THE FUCKING TIME.

Also you can disable the 'flip table option' if you are the host, in which case whenever someone clicks the button, everyone gets a message saying they tried to flip the table, but they were too weak. But sometimes the person hosting the game will forget, and thank fucking god there is an 'undo' button.

Nah. I only posted that first one as a joke, and the second one to show the tablet pop out. I'm not gonna be one of those assholes who makes the thread about them. I would rather it be about KDM, and ways to play it.

And on that note, the KS comments have been spending the past 2 days trying to make a viable Evasion build. The way they have decided to do this, is to try and make the greased up deaf guy from Family Guy. 3 Monster Grease accessories on them, all of them linked with some other accessory to complete their Affinities, to get you 6 evasion. After that, you just need some way to get +2 evasion, either from the accessories that are completing your affinities, or with one or the remaining 3 slots.

That leaves you 2 or 3 slots left for a weapon, and some form of armor. Though some people think you should leave those open to see if there is some item that regens survival, so that you can use it to fuel Dodge's.

Once thats done, congrats, you can now only be hit by a monster rolling a Lantern 10 on their accuracy roll.

Poots seems to have put most of the extra work into the main game, to ensure that all backers got it. Hence it spiking in price so much. The major expansions didn't seem to get that much changed.

The minor expansions, on the other hand, probably jumped from like 30 dollars, to 50 dollars. They got a lot of extra bits added, and became more fleshed out.

If a monster hits them twice they're fucked. You can only spend 1 survival per turn, so you can only negate one hit. With no armor any hit of 3 damage wil critical, which is not something you want to happen. Usually just means you're dead or lose a limb.

Also there should only be 4 monster grease in the core set iirc.

>> No.41714811

I actually find it very unlikely that any monsters will have Devastating 2. Every monster attack we have seen so far only inflicts a single wound. That means you can survive a minimum of 4 direct hits, assuming to don't roll any instant deaths, as some serious injuries give 2 bleeding tokens. That would require all hits to be to the head, and all of the serious injury rolls to give 2 bleeding tokens.

You only have a 10% chance to get hit at all. If you are hit, you roll to see where the hit lands. It has less than a 17% chance of hitting your head. If it does, you can spend 1 survival and ignore the attack entirely.It has to do this TWICE in a single round, or keep doing it until you burn through your survival, in order to deal any serious damage to you. It then has to repeat that AT LEAST one more time, in order to kill you, and will likely require up to 5 attacks to actually kill you.

Those are REALLY GOOD odds.

As for the number of monster grease accessories, there are 3, and you would need all of them for the build, and have their 3 green affinity to double their bonus.

So basically, chances are good, but not great, that we can avoid fatal hits, but it's still easily possible for one battle to leave a person completely dead?

>> No.41714942

I mentioned two hits. You dodge one- you have no armor for the other. If it deals three damage it doesn't matter where it lands you take a critical. Also some attacks don't have to roll to hit, meaning your super evasion guy just gets fucked.

>> No.41714997

Oh yeah, I played the Phoenix demo and the dude across from me got dead on the first turn. Luckily Poots handwaved it away because it was basically a freak thing.

>> No.41715289

Pretty much. Which doesn't sound great, but its chances are still better than most survivors we have seen so far in the demos.

I'm sure the parasites grow into something, but I doubt its normal humans. Its probably something closer to the Illuminated Lady. A monster that looks like a human, and uses that to prey on people.

You have to be hit in the head twice before you take a serious injury (which is different from a critical wound)

All other locations dont deal serious injuries until the third hit. Again, those are really good odds in your favor.

And again, attacks aren't just going to deal 3 damage automatically. We haven't seen a single card in all of the spoilers to show that. And if, god for fucking bid, there IS an attack that does 3 automatic damage, THAT IS THE ATTACK YOU SAVE YOUR SURVIVAL TO DODGE. You dont burn it the second you take any damage at all. That would be fucking stupid.

If you really still want it to be better, just make the 3 accessories that complete your monster grease affinities be Calcified Shoulders. Only Lantern 10's hit you, any hits have a 24% chance of being ignored, AND if they still get through, you have 9 armor in ever hit location. Only downside is that it is working outside vanilla, since it requires the Dung Beetle Knight. And that you would probably look like a World of Warcraft character with that many pauldrons on you.

>There are attacks that fuck over ANY possible build. Your build can't deal with those!
Well yeah, obviously. We dont have the game yet. No build is gonna be perfect, its just fun speculation. I'm also not saying its a perfect build, cause its not. Neurological damage will COMPLETELY fuck you over, as will any Trap in the monsters hit location deck. But given the information we have right now, its not that bad of a build.

The game is called Kingdom Death.

People die in Kingdom Death.

No build is going to get around that entirely.

>> No.41715444

>And again, attacks aren't just going to deal 3 damage automatically.
What makes you say this, the Lion in the demo, which was presumably level 1 or 2, was dealing 2 damage on pretty much every attack.

>> No.41715666

No, it had 2 speed, so it rolled two dice with every attack. Each one only did 1 damage. Its just they both usually hit, because the lion has really good accuracy. For an evasion build, the monsters accuracy is a non-issue.

Also, Pheonix armor comes from the strongest huntable monster in the core game. It only gives 4 points of armor. I find it extremely hard to believe that any monster in the core game will practically instantly cripple the best armor in the core game, with a single attack. And if it did, yes, it would fuck over an evasion build. But it would ALSO fuck over every other build you could make. Which would make it something you couldn't defend against, and not really worth considering.

Its like saying you shouldn't play Blue in Magic the Gathering, because Island dies to land removal. No shit it does. So does every other color. So why are we even discussing that?

Like, I get what you are saying. There is a hole in the build that can get you killed. But that hole is "You are targetable", Every build has that flaw.

>> No.41715975

Phoenix does 3 damage with every attack(played the demo at Gencon at Gallery 42). I assume other monsters do as well. As said lion does 2. You only have 2 body points after your armor everywhere, the head only has 1.

You can totally attempt to build a dodge character, but they will die. Every monster has attacks that don't roll to hit. If a monster attacks 3 times a turn(Phoenix), hits twice, you can only dodge one hit, because you can only spend 1 survival per round. Other attack goes right through, and you're a goner or maimed at best.

Not to mention, you only have so much survival, and it doesn't regenerate. You either have to have something in your gear that gives it(First aid gives each survivor 3 survival at the beginning of the hunt phase and prevents disembowlment), or something special has to happen. May be a settlement option that gives returning survivors survival as well.

Let's not forget each monster has a hit location deck that can screw you over even on a crit. In our demo dude rolled a critical hit, split open the Phoenix's belly but slipped in the slime knocking him prone. Iirc you can't use survival from being prone(but another character can spend a point to have you auto-stand up: "Encourage").

All I'm saying is, building a one-trick pony isn't going to work. Well-rounded characters are the way forward.

>> No.41716123

Just noticed lion has 2 speed, not damage.

Any critter that knocks you back will avoid your evasion too(Phoenix has a wind attack- you can dash to get into the Eye of the Storm, but that has it's own drawbacks.)

After the game I played, i just don't think an all-in evade build is viable outside of shits and giggles. We'll know more when the game hits.

>> No.41716169

Huh. Well. Fuck me I guess. I was wrong. The people working on this build on the KS are gonna be very disappointed.

Guess I'll stick to my High Insanity build that uses blood paint to double attack with a Xmaxe and Gloom Katana.

And/or my luck heavy whip build to deal multiple crits per turn (and get completely fucked over by Traps in the hit location deck)

>> No.41716219

As an apology for me being WRONG AS FUCK, here everyone.

Have a Q&A with poots:

>> No.41716342

This game is fucking lethal. I'm sure an evasion heavy build may help with some earlier hunts(if you use a bow with said character for maximum safety-range), but against higher-level monsters(you can face level 1-3 of any monster in the Core, you choose what level and what you hunt before you set out) it's going to get messy.

I should point out that doing more attacks is good, but you're more likely to flip the trap card too. Not to mention some hit locations can hit you back(think acid blood type stuff), or do weird shit(Pheonix had some hit where it would end the turn and rewind all the attacks and damage done to it- Did I mention the Phoenix is a time manipulator?). This game is meant to fuck you over for being too good at something. Average is where it's at.

During our battle with the Phoenix(and the group before us) only one survived. Between all the damage he deals, and the fact that he can age everyone each turn if they have a doom counter(or didn't- can't remember) it's just a brutal fight. Poots said they're all like that.

I haven't built it, so I could be wrong.

And chances are that I can't even bring a good majority of the monsters into a FLGS without either getting stares or kicked out.

Hell, Slaaneshi Daemonettes are probably more acceptable than some of this stuff....

Most of the monsters more... indecent parts are separate pieces that don't necessarily have to be used.

Otherwise there's always green stuff.

Name one monster on the Core you can't take to an LGS.

The phoenix has an anus with hands stuffed in it and literally has an attack when it pulls you into its ass.

Yeah, that one's a classic but I've always had a soft spot for:
Looks a bit milfy.

is really pressing all the right buttons for me.

Actually nevermind- the rulebook had nudity in it, so it's not going to be played there for that.

>> No.41727878

And that's a problem why? Animals not supposed to have anuses?

Not to mention that's a late-game hunt to begin with.

And the hand-anus is supposedly a separate part you don't have to glue on if you don't want to.

And women are supposed to have tits. But slamming down a pinup model in an brick and mortar store is not generally 'acceptable'.

The monster is grotesque and indecent to the point where a 'family friendly' place like an FLGS would likely ask you to not.

And so what if it's a late game hunt? The question was literally name one monster you can't take into an LGS. And I did.

No it's part of the whole torso piece. You'd have to greenstuff over it.

Thats the resin one.

Plastics use a different mould.

The hands are separate parts in the plastic version
