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.

I've backed for the EB, but not sure I'll keep it.  The card-based system is interesting though.  Will see where this goes.

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.

      Miniatures based on the art from the Fighting Fantasy books. 
      I was an avid fan of the books growing up so I'm definitely in
       





       
      WHEN IS THE KICKSTARTER?
      Our kickstarter release will go live approximately October 16th. It will feature all of the new models and the updated versions of some models with plenty of extras. If you can't attend FFF3 or don't get exactly what you want, then join us on Kickstarter and check out what's on offer.

      WHATS BEING ADDED TO THE RANGE?
      The 10 additional models will be gradually revealed on here and social media in the build up to the kickstarter release. Why not generate a little hype! 

      HOW WILL I KNOW WHEN ITS LIVE?
      If you sign up to our newsletter via www.atlantisminiatures.com, email notifications will be sent during the build up and once we are live.

      WILL THERE BE AN EARLY BIRD OFFER?
      This is something we have always struggled to get right. This time we will have a first 48 hour discount on some of the rewards options.
      There will be no super early bird discounts on this release.

      WHAT ABOUT STRETCH GOALS?
      There will be some stretch goal additions to the Collectors options. We will not be using miniatures as stretch goals in this release. Instead, we have tried to get the prices as generous as possible on box offers. It doesn't feel right to separate some of the release as freebies. Each character from the franchise deserve their own spot in the box, which is why we have priced accordingly on the box offers.

      This small project is to fund a collection of little encounters that can be dropped into an existing adventure for low level adventurers.  I backed his previous project for alternate character backgrounds, and he delivered the PDFs early.

      What are GOAT Dice?
      Polyhedral 20 sided dice that produce a visual swirling effect when rolled. The effect is akin to animation or holographic. Don't believe me? Watch the video!
      Handmade and Artisanal. 
      Each GOAT Dice is produced by hand by one person(me). The process takes 4 days total with many overnight curing processes. The dice are made from resin and secret proprietary ingredients to create the visual effect. 
      Are these dice fair?
      The #1 question asked. The truth is, I don't know, but I think so. I've rolled these dice hundreds of times to shoot the very videos you see here as well as having played with them and they don't seem to be unfair based on my experience. They cannot be tested by the infamous salt water trick because they sink due to their higher than normal weight and density.
      They roll just like any other D20 with one small difference. The inertia from the spinning core causes a drama moment at the end of the roll, sometimes the inertia is strong enough to make the dice flip one more side and other times the inertia is not strong enough and it does a bounce back. This does not effect the randomness, but can create tension. 
      Shipping.
      I've done shipping like this, on a good month working full time I can make 300 total GOAT Dice, so I've split that in half and adjusted the shipping accordingly. The early backers, the first 150 dice, I am expected to get out before the end of December and with any luck delivered before Christmas. Then I batch them into 3 months (450) for each quarter of 2020, so if you miss early backing then your delivery will be targeted for end of march, if you miss March, end of June and so on. Best case scenario all dice are shipped in half the time allotted. When one reward tier is out of stock, another will be added with +3 months on expected delivery. 
       
      GOAT Admirer $1
      You like what you see and want to support this project. You can adjust your pledge at anytime and choose a reward. If you adjust your pledge for a reward, I will do my best to place you in the correct shipping timeline based on your time of pledging. If you want dice, best practice would be to back one of the other tiers. 
      Petting Zoo GOAT $25
      You will receive a single GOAT Dice of your choosing.
      Mountain GOAT $45
      You will receive two GOAT Dice of your choosing. Add $22.50 for additional GOAT Dice up to 4, if you want more than 4 you are upgraded to GOAT Shepherd. (you may choose the same color twice or more)
      GOAT Shepherd $95
      You will receive five GOAT Dice of your choosing. Add $18.00 for additional GOAT Dice, no maximum. (you may choose the same color twice or more)

      Midlam always has some very nice sculpts, great castings and timely delivery ... and I do not have enough Hobgoblins ... (i.e. less than 20).

      And lots more ... this is a bad time with Reaper Bones and lots of other interesting projects at the same time. Probably the first time I will take full advantage of every "pledge $1 now and rest in pledge manager" offer possible.
