    Kingdom Death: Monster 2

    I mean technically the Tree is an encounter which can ambush you during the hunt phase already so this is not entirely unprecedented.

    Oh I'm aware of that. As far as I know the Choose Cthulu books have nothing to do with Chaosium (although I wouldn't be surprised if Chaosium sued them out of existence either). I mean those scum at Chaosium are the reason we're not allowed to buy Hero Quest anymore because they wanted to use the name for Runequest then never used it.

    Interesting. I met the Choose Cthulu guys at Fighting Fantasy Fest in London back in August and they had a lot of printed books with them. Not one mention of Sans Detour having anything to do with it. Nobody even mentioned a kickstarter. What was the deal? Sans Detour running a kickstarter to publish French language editions? The Choose Cthulu running a campaign and Sans Detour was going to be their publisher? I was considering picking up a few of the books but now it sounds like I need more information.

    So yesterday or the day before they changed to something called "daily unlocks". I've heard of this phenomenon before but never witnessed it. To my mind this could mean a few different things. First it could mean they don't need any more money and can comfortably afford to produce everything they're going to unlock. This could mean that they never needed to run a kickstarter in the first place (and were just doing so to gauge market interest) or it could mean that they've been much more successful than they expected. It could also mean that they're easily pressured by the vocal minority who were demanding daily unlocks because some other project did it (I did not check how many of those demanders had backed projects with daily unlocks before. That would be an interesting investigation). Daily unlocks could adversely affect funding as it would give people less of an incentive to push that funding level. That would probably depend on how many of these unlocks were add ons. I love what I'm seeing with this project and the sculpts look great (as do the prototypes) but the price they're charging has me thinking we might get very inferior production quality when it comes to the actual miniatures themselves.

    Having forgotten precisely which two miniatures I backed the project for I was not pleased to be stung today for a £12 customs charge (including the bogus illegal £8 "handling fee" ransom money they always add on nowadays). Now normally I don't mind paying import duties but I've never had it be so disproportionately high compared to the actual value of the parcel before. Here's hoping the two bonus miniatures make up for it.

    Oh man, you are in for such a treat. Still waiting for my second wave with expansions myself but it can't be long now.

    Well then I have bad news for you. It seems the monster box will be available separately as an add on in the pledge manager for people who want extra copies of all the monsters. I think they said it would be around $90 (all the monsters and all their gameplay elements).

    Well you've got 18 hours left.

    At the moment that's almost an all in pledge (sans scenery).

    Live and thriving. It's funding at a rather swift rate despite having good competition in the likes of Reaper Bones 5. It's not going at Kingdom Death speed or the kind of speed you'd see for yet another CMON ZOmbiecide re-release. They also set the funding goal lower than expected so the overfunding percentage would look very successful. That being said they're doing very well 'though and it will be interesting to see where they end up. Needless to say I went all in immediately, on the dot, on the hour, and still 2,069 people somehow managed to get their pledges processed before me. That implies a day 1 swell which may die down over time. I'm expecting the mid campaign lull to hit this one hard.

    Mine is nowhere near arriving yet but it's apparently arrived at no less than eight different carrier facilities* and it hasn't even left America yet! *Although the tracking system seems to list a lot of duplicate entries so they're not all that different. The last listed "arrived at carrier facility" entry doesn't even have a name yet. The column's just empty.

    I'm the guy asking for a Painter's Pack of multiple hero bodies so I can assemble different variants. They said they hadn't planned it but might put out such a pack if there was enough demand. Perhaps you might want to go and demonstrate demand in the comment's section....?

    I fully appreciate your concern. I mean hey, I backed Axes and Anvils and we all know how badly that turned out. That being said, I've backed a load of projects and a vast majority have turned out well. In over a hundred projects there's only been two or three instances where someone ran off with the money. There's been projects that fully delivered, projects that partially delivered (meaning I'm still waiting for more stuff that isn't due out yet), projects that are due to deliver later on etc. From everything I'm seeing so far I've got a good feeling about this one. I'm willing to give them the benefit of the doubt.

    I got shipping confirmation and a tracking number on Tuesday. Apparently the label has been created somewhere in Utah. Eventually I presume it'll start it's journey across the Atlantic ocean.
