No Longer the Final Boss Edition

>What is it?
Kingdom Death is a board game where you kill monsters to make cool new hats.
>Where can I buy it?
Nowhere at the moment. You just missed the kickstarter, and the webstore won't be getting any more stock while the update is in production.
Should restock on Black Friday, depending on production schedule. If you want to play it, check eBay for the old version, or play over Tabletop Simulator.
>When does it deliver?
Core game will likely be this year, mid-late fall. Current Expansions will ship soon after, followed by Gamblers Chest and Promos next year, then Expansions shipping in two or three waves between then and 2020.
>Can I add to my pledge in the Pledge Manager?
Nobody knows. Anybody who claims otherwise is lying.

Previous thread >>51209661

>Threadly Question
Which new expansion is going to be the new "Must Get" expansion to the game?

>> No.51236295

Frogdog or Honeycomb Weaver probably, possibly also abyssal woods from a sheer value perspective though that will depend on the final msrp.

>> No.51236538

I'm personally looking forward to the red witches expansion, but that's just me.

>> No.51236673

If Poots is a real bro and lets us add funds to the pledge manager and I have around $60 to spend, what do you guys think is the most appealing option:
Pathfinders of Death
Red Witches
or Black Knight?

>> No.51236702

Black Knight, he's a quarry and you don't need any other expansions to use all the content in the expansion, unlike Red Witches which requires the Pariah.

Of course if you already have the Pariah then it'd say just pick whatever you think has nicer models though I'd still tend towards the Black Knight.

>> No.51236703

Pathfinders seems to have the lowest gameplay value. I like the Red Witches more because tits n hips, plus dope-ass pimp gear and lots of minis. Though I think most would say doggo.

>> No.51236711

I'd go with one of the actual expansions, so the Red Witches or Black Knight.
The Pathfinders are cross-over miniatures, I don't know how much content they'll get.
It's probably going to be far more limited than the expansions will be.

>> No.51236723

The Red Witches do not require the Pariah, but I admit an interaction between the two is likely.

>> No.51236738

That's what I meant by
> to use ALL the content
without him you can only use some of he content (no limited campaign).

>> No.51236776

I don't know why, but the pariah tripped my " this fight will be ass" sensor. When you fight him upside down, I'm worried it will have stupid rules like " reduce speed and movement to 1" or " you can't use two handed weapons".

>> No.51236793

If balanced properly, that shouldn't matter too much.

>> No.51236805


Considering I'd been thinking of grabbing a chinaman version of Black Knight before the expansion got released. Mostly interested in Pathfinders simply because I'm concerned about not being able to get them later. Plus elf waifu.

>> No.51236835

Unless you absolutely adore Pathfinder I wouldn't recommend Pathfinders of Death, you can always get Chinaman recasts of the models if your interested in those, the rules seem easy enough to just print out or have in PDF form with how little of them there are.

>> No.51236867

Best Doggo for Best Girl it is.

>> No.51236913

Frogdog and Honeycomb Weaver will be big. I'm gonna go out on a limb and say that Gryphon, as another traditional alt campaign, will also end up being seen as highly desirable. The expansions that require other expansions will be seen as less desirable due to the barrier to entry involved in using them.

Speaking of Honeycomb Weaver, some notes from my time playtesting the Fan Campaign...

1.) The theme is pretty strong in the first hunt, but dies off after until you start getting Honeypots. They're a big part of the campaign, so that's not surprising.

2.) Tons of shit needed wording tweaks and I realized I had no guaranteed access to Heat in my campaign. As such, I created a replacement for Hands of Heat and a population level dependent access to heat via a new innovation that replaces Lantern Oven.

3.) Blue Honeypot seemed powerful, but it's actually shit compared to the other two, so I buffed it a bit.

4.) That said, Honeypots in general seemed to be in a good spot. They're powerful but vulnerable, and constantly having to deal with Vestiphobia means they can't benefit from most armor bonuses, leading to some difficult choices when it comes to building gear.

5.) Figuring out when to bring a powerful male survivor and when to bring trash to breed with feels fun.

6.) Death principles are stupid powerful in this campaign. Life principles are pretty even, though I'd give the edge to SotF. Without Augery, I really feel like there needs to be another dump for endeavors, though. They're useless in the early game.

>> No.51236938

>Which new expansion is going to be the new "Must Get" expansion to the game?
A good argument can be made for Node 1 monsters as per >>51236295 but I feel that's going to be diluted because you've got Gorm, Frogdog, and Weaver for various flavors of Node 1. The other real "Must buy" from KS1 has been Dragon King for being the more fun alt campaign. To which I feel you're going to be looking at Abyssal Woods for offering a Node 3 (whatever), Node 5 GSK-pusher-forward (Cool), Short Campaign that people had actually been crying for (Like Squires), AND a full longform campaign (Even if it takes other xpacs, it's just two). That's a ton of content, and perhaps more importantly a ton of modes.

>> No.51236948

>The expansions that require other expansions will be seen as less desirable due to the barrier to entry involved in using them.
That's defintely true for the Inverted Mountain Campaign butI'm not so sure about Silver City or Abyssal Woods, both of them have so much stuff packed into them that the barrier to entry might be seen as totally worth it for what your're getting.

Silver City especially I think will be very sought after as the Lion God is one of the games cheaper expansions.

>> No.51236976

We don't even yet know what kind of monster the Spiral Knight will be, for all we know the Abyssal Woods might end up coming with another Quarry monster which would make it even crazier.

And I do think It'l be a quarry since we already have the Disciples, The Witch herself and the Sparrow King human form which could already cover 3 nemesis nodes.

>> No.51237000

Was Flower Witch confirmed Nemesis? I know Disciples of the Witch were but FW herself seems like something that wouldn't come to you; you'd have to go to her.

>> No.51237023

In the reveal, Poots described Spiral Knight as a quarry in certain types of campaigns and a nemesis in others. I'm interested to see what that looks like.

>> No.51237048

I would assume so, she's entirely unique.
There is only 1 of her.

>> No.51237075

The Disciple 6 lore (About the 5th petal) implies she can/will be replaced by a successor.

>> No.51237089

My guess in that case is that He's a nemesis in normal Campaigns and a Quarry in Abyssal Woods campaigns.

Either that or it's the other way round and the Flower Witch is the campaigns Watcher equivalent to the Sparrow Kings GSK equivalent.

>> No.51237106

Probably, but I'm not so sure.
I imagine one of the Disciples becoming the new Witch with the 5th Petal containing something else, as she will leave it to her successor, implying that it's not a new her.

Pretty much. KDM may be the most funded game kickstarter, but it's still seriously small time compared to the games that maintain persistent generals like GW games, PF/D&D, Warmahordes, and so on. And it's more constrained than any of those, too, with less diverse builds than an RPG (though settlement stories could be just as varied) and no competitive meta to go on about.

Maybe that will change once the horde of new folks get their copies some time hopefully before 2017 is out, but somehow I doubt it. Enjoy the generals while there's enough hype to sustain them or melt into Board Game General.

3 wanderers. Pathfinders is right now kinda dubious. I mean, it may explode depending on how big "Revamped hero mode" is. It may effectivley become a full alt campaign/game mode. But in the meantime, Wanderers seem like a nice, low-impact something you can drop into your game while Pathfinders seem just a little out of theme.

It's the translation. The early fan translations of Berserk are fucking terrible. The official ones do a much better job of it.

Flower Knight really isn't good though. You can get basically everything it has to offer from a level 1 and it doesn't even offer that much. In the end it just serves as a way to make the overrall campaign easier by giving you easy access to an OP weapon. The fights great but imo all of the expansion fights are great so you have to judge it based on what it adds to the campaign.

I adore its fight but it comes with hardly anything and its like a $75 expansion, that's just pathetic compared to everything else in terms of value.

I don't like its custom campaign that much either, but as a quarry its an absolute must-have. It adds a lot and almost all of it is interesting.

As for Lonely Tree vs. the Lion God, lets compare what both expansions come with.

Lonely Tree at $75:

Lonely Tree Sprues
25x Lonely Tree AI cards
23x Lonely Tree HL cards
1x Lonely Tree Hunt Event card
5x Strange Resource cards
1x Terrain card
1x Lonely Tree card divider

Lion God at $60:

Lion God sprues (includes survivor gear and the Lion God Monster)
9x Gear cards
32x Lion God AI cards
20x Lion God HL cards
5x Strange Resource cards
8x Lion God Hunt Events cards
2x Terrain cards

Holy shit , is fake Ekoi Micheal Wade?

>> No.51247577

My group is planning a set house rules that we hope will boost the spider out of the meh tier:

1) He doesn't replace the antelope and comes a few years later (maybe just before Phoenix).

2) The kidnapping is kind of a pain and what you get out of fighting spid at all isn't worth the maintenance of fighting him every few years. Possibly make kidnapping only occur on lvl 2+ encounters.

3) We are debating messing with silk surgeon some, just making it a little more likely to get. It's feels like a major focus of the expansion, but it occurs a little too rarely to be a main theme.

Any other ideas or better ones?

It would not surprise me... butthurt over not getting his winged ape, he takes it out on someone who DID get something in the game as a fan.

As the person who originally posted that theory, I feel people took it a little too literally. I mostly meant that the dragon King was more of a celestial being than an alien, and that the other major deities were the same species.

yes, my plan is to use that or something similar, I just fear for air bubbles in places I don't want due to the terrain.

On page 79 of the rulebook, it states that for setting up the settlement event deck that you 'shuffle all settlement event cards" to make the deck.

On the next page when you draw a settlement card it says to just put it face up on the table and never says anything about removing it from future settlement decks. It also never states anything about removing those cards during the End Settlement Phase either.

So by raw you shuffle them all together every time.

a very slow, inclined pour of a low viscosity resin should be enough to not have air trapped on the model, then maybe some light tapping or maybe even vacuum degassing
Still water doesn't usually need texture, maybe just abit of rippling near the bits poking out of the water, shouldn't be too difficult. The layer of scum on top could be litter, muck and leaves, so grainy/slimy could work well and you definitely could add some spiraling or clumping of debris and leave a bit of the surface clear

I've never made it this far, but at year 16,19, and 23 you're given the option of selecting which nemesis to face. My gut feeling tells me you should go for the butcher, but thinking about it maybe it would be better to go for the kings hand. Then you just have to run away right?

>> No.51262062

If you want to disincentivize Zanbato use play a campaign with as many monsters with as many super dense hit locations as possible, currently that means a campaign with all the knights.

Even then Katars certainly have their place, both in luck spam builds and as means to peal off battle pressure.

>> No.51262100

Generally, the Hand is the easiest of the core game nemeses if you fight him defensively, even at level 2. And a level 2 Butcher is fairly reasonable at LY19 as well. And then you fight the watcher at LY20 and that's game.

L2 King's Man is fucking absurd, though. If you thought the L1 King's Man was bad, he gets so much worse in L2.

>> No.51262119

With the hand if you don't try to go for his secret fighting art, and why would you, the fight is just about having your survivors tank a bunch of hits, so slap your best non irreplaceable armour onto them, give them all shield and get ready to dash into position so he can smack you in the face.

>> No.51265400

What the good book says:

pg 74: In step 2 you determine a 'hit' for each hit that meets or exceeds the accuracy.
The glossary has a similar definition of: Hit(Survivors): A hit is the result of an attack roll that meets or exceeds the accuracy for an attack using a weapon.

Only in step 4 do you then draw hit location cards and read them. It also states that traps 'end the attack(s)'.
Since the wording on a trap card says 'cancel all hits' we can say 'end the attack(s)' and 'cancel all hits' are equivalent.

Since determining hits happen in a separate step before reading any hit location cards and the claw head arrow simple states 'if you hit'. You hit in step 2, apply the arrow effect, and then move on to drawing and reading hit location cards, your attack is then ended.

If claw head arrow said 'if you have any uncanceled hits' then you wouldn't get the effect from traps/other hit cancelling effects, but as it is, so long as you hit, you get the effect.

>> No.51265548

The wording is unambiguous. It says 'if you hit'. A hit is determined once you roll the dice. Once you fulfill an effect you apply it.

There are effects that state 'uncanceled hits'. If they meant 'uncanceled hits' they would have put 'uncanceled hits'.

KD needs twisted Genies with harems as a settlement event. It would stay active, and while the settlement would gain a random resource from a deck of their choosing, no pregnancies can occur. To end both effects start a nemesis fight to drive the genie off, and give it the stats and AI of a L2 kingsman.

I would say that the effect of the arrow is applied when you say it is, BUT if all hits are cancelled later on it undoes the effect too. Cancelling is inherently retroactive.

Dragon King has the best set for PotS, pretty much, and its set isn't that good in a regular campaign, so it's kinda doubly worth including. Lion Knight's Katars are pretty fun with the PotS mechanics, in my opinion, though adding a nemesis into PotS increases difficulty. If you really want to make things nasty, Slendie is fun, too.

Trouble in the settlement, all survivors come out to see the commotion. Highest insanity is the accused, rando with less than 2 exp is the accuser.

3-6: One kills the other. Resolve the Murder event, randomly select victim/murderer
7-8: An argument turns to blows. Resolve the Rivalry event.

Another day, another round of testing my Honeycomb Weaver homebrew. Got to about year 11ish. I've hunted mostly lions, with the intent to eventually go for the upgrade stuff from the Lion God and see how it is. Also gone against a lvl 1 Antelope (easy fight), a lvl 1 Sunstalker (fucked my shit up), and a lvl 1 Slendie (having relatively easy access to Legendary Lungs makes him kind of a loot pinata, but he's still dangerous so I think it's fine).

I've noticed that the campaign kind of exaggerates KD's tendency towards safeish showdowns and game ending hunts/settlement phases. Drew plague the hunt after I got my first Royal Honeypot and thought that was gonna be the campaign right there. It managed to just kill everyone else in my party instead, which was considerate of the dice gods, and it took me two more years to finally get rid of the thing. It's also significantly harder to gain anything approximating Weapon Mastery. I think family might be particularly important to succeed in the campaign, but even then it takes forever to get moving. So far the campaign's feeling like the exact opposite of the People of the Stars campaign. Individual survivors don't matter for shit. Even the savior equivalents are best treated as carry-alongs explicitly for breeding (at least in the first half of the game). Developing the settlement is King.

I'm about to get the second Settlement Location I designed. Its intent is to allow for a transition in the mid game from having to focus purely on settlement building and keeping Honeypots alive to a more traditional "try to level survivors" approach. Vaguely worried the easy access to safe intimacy will kill the intended challenge of the campaign, though. We'll see.

Flower Knight probably, though that mith make the rest of the campaign too easy if you just spam Vespertine Bows. Other than that Gorm or Spidey are the only other earlier game monsters available right now, but gorm will seriously fuck with your campaign thanks to Gorm Climate.

>> No.51274958

Honestly if you're wrecking level 1's, I've found it's pretty easy to take down level 2 antelopes. Much easier than level 2 lion IMO. But also keep in mind that in a few years you'll have to fight the kingsman, so while it may be kind of boring now, it may be best to just farm some easy hunts till you fight him, then jump into level 2's or Phoenix. If you're itching for new mechanics though, try a level 2 lion. You wouldn't think it, but cunning drastically changes the fight and makes it a LOT more intense.

Also highly recommend finishing a full leather set if you don't have one already, including shield. Helps ridiculously with the kingsman fight. You can slot affinities for 2 evasion off monster grease, and most of his attacks are 3+ accuracy, so it really helps.

And then you go in there and just try to burst him down as fast as fucking possible. If everyone has a shield the trap doesn't do anything, and if nobody has heavy gear his First Strike HLs don't do anything, so you just clear that Battle Pressure with King's Step on the first activation and go balls to the wall Surge like a madman full stop damage until he dies or you die trying.

It ain't pretty. Time is on his side, and his AoEs are really brutal. And then someone gets hit by Coup de Grace and things go from bad to worse.
