or upgrade to Investigator for $120 to add



and if you've got it all already

I was part of the first campaign and it was a good one with regular info from Dimension Games, and a decent product at the end of the day (mini quality is similar to recent CMON boardgames). It was delayed, but with most of the assets already done this should be a lot easier to estimate the timings right

BGG seems to like the game reasonably well too https://boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/202077/deep-madness

so if you fancy a lovecraft/body horror inspired fairly hard boardgame or just a pile of creepy monster minis this is well worth a look

Is there any truth to the comments that some of the atmospherically gloomy components (the tiles specifically) are too dark for visually challenged (old) eyes?  I would love a good solo game but ocular weariness is a chronic issue for me these days.  Your thoughts are welcome.

The tiles seemed all right. I mean, the art is pretty good, but I couldn't repurpose them for other games (which was really my whole goal with this one).


Can you elaborate? Are the tiles different in this set? (I didn't back the previous one, and want to re-purpose the tiles for RPG's)

The tiles are thick cardboard stock (not corrugated), and the print quality was pretty good. They aimed for atmosphere so yes, they're dark. The contrast is high, however, and I didn't have any trouble seeing the art in warm light. I haven't really dug into the rules (since, y'know, I recycled them...) but the tiles didn't come with much of a grid, just occasional lines suggesting zones. They also ran a little small. They're appropriately sized for the game, but not quite the right size for a tabletop RPG. 


The reprint should, I believe, include the same tiles. They're shown in the breakdown of each pledge level. Mine were a shade darker than what the image suggested on my various screens, but that's hard to get right as a web publisher.

I've played the first scenario a couple times now.  Died horribly, but I think that was mostly due to my own decision making rather than an issue with game design.  There is a lot to keep track of on the board, but it doesn't feel overwhelming.  And the gameplay itself is pretty straightforward.  The monsters all have their own AI card, so it flows pretty smoothly.  Should be playing with a group of friends next week, but might have to play again myself because I want to try a different approach now.  :-)

      Kemet: Blood and Sand is a reworking/second version of the popular game Kemet.  Set in Ancient Egypt, you gain powerful abilities and monsters by building pyramids of various colors.  Emerald/Green is a completely new color to this version and adds new mechanics and a bit more of a sinister feel.  It brings in the ability to sacrifice your troops for enhanced powers, and summoning gods to the table that behave similar to, but slightly different from, creatures.  In addition, if you want a more Lovecraftian feel, you can replace the two core gods with Lovecraftian gods/monsters that are mechanically identical.  
      The Emerald original group - 

      Lovecraftian replacements - 

      Demeaned Sphinx -
      Thoth - 
      Apophis (his rear quarters has no mechanical importance, it just sits in the Nile) - 
      Nyarlathotep (Thoth's replacement)- 
      Cthulhu (Apophis' replacement)-

      I barely received my last campaign pledge from Midlam that already it has something that caught my interest.
      Sisters of the Kraken Cult. The female counterparts of the previous "Onslaught of the Cult of the Kraken Lord" and "Cultists of the Kraken Lord". (I now have some regret of not getting it)

      What's also interesting is the optional add-on of fish folk.

      Brinewind is going to have some interesting neighbors.

      After the estate of one Fomo Barrowblight (who many moons ago, and with heavily laden bags, had said he was just off for a morning walk, never to return) was sold at auction, there came to light a strange scroll that appeared to be a map of the final resting place of a lost tribe of halflings.  These cousins lived down in the scorching Southlands, amidst endless dunes that had buried whole cities and civilisations.
      The newly elected (and so still very enthusiastic) Halfling Town Council had organised an expedition to make contact with their fellow halflings, with the aim of swapping some stories and recipes, and who knows, perhaps even coming back with some interesting new cakes.
      And, after many great perils and travails, the expedition found itself in a mysterious location known as 'The Valley of the Things'.  Here, recipes in strange hieroglyphs were marked on tomb walls,  guarded jealously by High Priests and long mummified pastry chefs.  
      The expedition takes time to assuage the fears of the High Priests that they are here to steal the sacred recipes and make formal diplomatic relations.  But Fomo Barrowblight and another mysterious figure seem intent on stealing the recipe to the sacred pie and have already gleaned some of the ingredients...
      To the Mummy's Tomb!
      Introducing a series of  Eight Fantasy Miniatures in 28mm scale from a halfling expedition to the burial grounds of their cousins, in the desert southlands. 
        Halfling Town Council Five
      The latest elected Halfling Town Council, has been responsible for launching the expedition to the distant Southlands, as always, it is made up of eight different townsfolk from all walks of life.
      I've already pledged for the whole set, why haven't you?

      Echoes of Camelot: Arthurian Legends is a project that will expand our 75mm resin miniature range with new and exciting models based on the Matter of Britan, particularly around the figure of King Arthur and his Knights. We have many cool surprises prepared should you help us bring this dream to life.
      These miniatures have been sculpted and painted here at the Big Child Creatives studio with the collaboration of some of the most talented miniature artists out there. And what is more, they will be manufactured by our own talented team of resin casting experts. This allows us to monitor the process closely to ensure the best quality in the market and a timely delivery.
      We have learned a lot from our previous campaigns, and we want to put all this experience to good use, repeating everything we did right, improving upon it, and correcting our past mistakes. We invite you to join us in this journey of discovery throughout the Matter of Britain and its amazing cast of unique characters.
      This campaign is a journey of discovery, full of surprises such as custom bits to make your miniatures even more striking than they already are. Some of these kits will be Kickstarter exclusive, so those of you who choose to support us will be able to proudly show it through unique miniatures, even more full of life and character than our regular releases.
