Bloodborne : 24 hour EB

Recommended Posts

I'm interested because of its card-based game system, which includes upgrading your character, and custom weapons.

Scroll down to the Rulebook section, for the overviews of the game!

 

So far, including the unlocks, the game has 50+ miniatures.

Huh, I was hoping they'd have more stuff from the main story and expansion rather than the Chalice Dungeon heavy focus they have so far.  But it is still quite early.

Its a fast paced souls-like (made by the same people) set in an ultra-gothic victorian city, starting with a lycanthrope theme and blending into lovecraftian nightmare as the story progresses.

Base pledge has about 85 miniatures, most of them large sized for your nightmare fuel needs.

Also, first expansion announced. Kinda pricey compared to the base pledge.

Didn't know Bloodborne had mosh pits.

Typically IF expansions make it to retail they'll be cheaper than KS with CMON project

 

but it's a gamble as if not enough people bit during the KS they may decide not to go to retail with it at all  (especially if you're outside the US where even if they do go to retail you may not be able to get hold of them)

That one is marked KS exclusive, so not much of a chance it will be cheap at retail.

You play a "hunter" in a world that's dark gothic horror mixed with lovecraft.. Blood can be used to make powerful healing medicines.. and many people have become afflicted with blood diseases that transform them into Beasts, which are the creatures you're hunting..

 

There's a lot of exploration and retreading areas, trying to find the best way to survive your way through them.. In souls games, if you kill a friendly NPC, they tend to stay dead.. same with bosses.. Normal monsters revive themselves every time you stop at a resting point (usually marked by lamps) and recover your health.. You there's a leveling system and you gain experience points for killing monsters.. The combat can be difficult at times, you can use bells to summon other players to help you fight though..  (I think this comes at a risk of allowing hostile players entering your world to fight you.. it's been a while so I might be mistaken on that..)

Interesting that this property from From Software is not being done by the Dark Souls peeps... maybe it was cause the DS boardgame is STILL trying to finish up. :) CMON is a better move. :D

I don't mind if it takes me three years to complete a video game. I mind if it takes three years to *get* a boardgame! :lol:

 

Bloodborne is a Japanese take on Gothic horror (and, as Dwapook said, Lovecraft), so it's not surprising that the monsters and therefore the miniatures are... different. ^_^

 

Like... the game has "messengers" who are small diminutive little guys who deliver stuff. Maybe in another videogame, they'd look like familiars, or faceless constructs. But in Bloodborne?

Well, at least you can hide their faces.

And, hey, who doesn't want to look pretty every once in awhile.

I picked up the Bones Dreadmere expansion, so these BB miniatures would fit into the more nightmarish parts of that region.

 

Also, BB has a card-driven combat system that's a change from the usual dice mechanics in dungeoncrawlers and miniatures games.

It's because of the KS exclusive expansions that I dropped.  In my opinion those expansions are not good value.  At $25 each I would think they are reasonable, but certainly not at $40.  And I actually feel fine with that decision.  Very sorry that I missed Carnival Zombie though.

      Story
      The world of Alberon, as ancient and unknowable as its timeless depths are, has few certainties for those that live in it, but ruin and corruption awaits all but a blessed few.  Halflings are, of course, no exception...
      The Western Wastelands beyond Midlam are a harsh unforgiving environment, that breeds a fierceness through necessity for survival alone.  It is thought that the first halflings to enter the Wastelands, did so unwillingly, captured by Hobgoblin Raiders some several hundred years ago.  
      It is reported that the Hogoblins thought that their small size would make them useful servants for all manner of tasks, but when the monstrous and unstoppable nature of their appetites became apparent, the halflings were stranded in the middle of the wasteland and left them to die.  
      That they didn't is some testament to the hidden reserves and ingenuity of these small folk, but they have not survived unscathed.  Their souls, often forsaken to unknowable gods, have changed as much as their bodies and minds.
      As a counterpoint to the Wasteland halflings, those that inhabit the town have found unusual niches, whether that be as criminal masterminds, pirates, anarchists, grave robbers and the somewhat cliched, but ever problematical, burglars.
      An Excerpt from 'The Robbit' by The Wizard R.R.R. Gudgrief
      Welcome to Halflings Gone Bad - Volume One!
      A collection of sixteen 28mm scale halflings from the wrong side of the elven forest tracks, for all of your fantasy miniature games.
      Welcome to our second Kickstarter to cover some of the more nefarious occupations and depths that halflings have stooped to.
      The worrying nature of the appearance of wasteland halflings, something seen as a threat to all halfling civilisation, combined with the new depths of depravity of halflings in Midlam has called for a new town council to be convened from amongst the artisans and workers of Halftown.

      I´m a sculptor from Germany and started sculpting about 5 years ago. Art, in whatever form, has always interested me. And I was so fascinated by all the details that I really wanted to sculpt my own miniatures. All my miniatures were traditionally sculpted, mostly in epoxy putty, sometimes in polymer clay. 
      Over the years I started working for smaller companies and smaller projects, and after a small edition of my first miniature was successfully produced and sold out, I felt that it was time for a somewhat larger project. After 2 years of hard work, I proudly present my first Kickstarter project, Into The Abyss!
       
      The "Abyssal Warriors" tier includes the 7 Miniatures with 21 handbits(weapons, shields, banners) and 12 helmets + the stretch goal miniature, in case it gets unlocked. All weapons and heads are interchangeable, so you can build the Abyssal warriors in your favourite way!
