your mate is in a room full of zombies the first thing you shoot is them?!?!

 

Well, it's not like your average modern-day person knows how to use a gun -- particularly when they see zombies. Search on "gun vs. knife".

 

Thanks to Hollywood, not only do we think guns hit everything (except the main character), but also cause bad guys to be flung backwards through saloon windows... <_<

Upgrade set confirmed with replacement character cards for ALL survivors and the plastic dashboards.  Very happy to see this.  Now to see the cost differential between it and the new "core", which I imagine will be set to push folks towards the full new edition...  :wacko:

True but when I shoot into a room filled with zombies and poor Timmy ends up with 15 holes in him, I then try a bow and arrow and add an extra 10 arrows to his corpse...something's not quite right.

 

I even stood next to the door with my gun on a zombies head and managed to shoot Timmy instead.

"Hey, Lassie! Timmy fell down the well again?"

"RUFF RUFF RUFF RUFF"

"Oh, Timmy escaped from the well but was attacked by zombies?"
"RUFF RUFF WARF WARF"

"Then was shot with fifteen holes in him then got arrows stuck into his corpse?"

"BARK BARK BARK WOOF"

"Shoulda stayed in that well, eh?"

 

Yeah, I get what you think, which is why 2nd edition is out there. :lol:

 

More importantly :zombie:: "With that, backers with a Reboot, Presidential, or All-Out pledge will get for free the 2nd Edition ID cards of ALL Survivors ever made for the 1st Edition of Zombicide!

Yeah, that always bugged me. They fixed it in Zombicide: Black Plague so I'm hoping 2nd edition fixes it also.

 

It sounds like they have changed the friendly fire rules.  The intro video has Danny Trejo (Uncle Machete!) saying something like “now you can shoot zombies in a room without hitting your compadres”.

 

This looks pretty good, and the RPG looks interesting.  I pledged for the All-Out package, since I don’t have the 1e.

The friendly fire rule was instantly house ruled out here. I adopted the BP rule back into Zombicide, and I'd assume that's what's revised for it here. It was always a dumb rule. It may have some use cases (as ced points out), but that's better kept as a scenario or per-character rule (ie; this is John's first encounter with the undead or John really sucks with ranged weapons) to keep Sylvester the combat vet from making those incomprehensible shots every time.

I was just going to get the upgrade kit, but eh...I'm in for the new version. I'm going to need a Zombicide storage room. Right next to my KDM room.

I think the 3d sculpts look really nice, so I am in. I really like the Danny Trejo ad, too. So will probably be picking that one up, too, because of that. :)

Careful of shipping. They have been increasing and the latest project, trudvang, was $42 when their estimate was sub $30.

Whoa, was it $42 shipping in the US? If so I'll have to drop down to $1 and see what shipping will really be in the pledge manager. The estimate says $15 to most states, but I haven't backed a CMON game since Z:BP.

Yep. They started charging "actual shipping costs" plus tariffs starting with Bloodborne.

 

Tariffs get all the headlines, but it's shipping costs that are killing small companies. State internet sales tax also threatens to make small mail order business owners quit.

Thanks for letting us know. I went down to $1. I'll have a look at the shipping cost and if it's something I can handle, I'll up my pledge for the goodies.

Yeah, that ad worked on me. I may need to reconsider this.

      About
        Start your journey through deep caverns, and the land of the spiders, before venturing forth into the cursed realms. Ancient demons and foul creatures dwell in the shadows of The Forsaken Lands...lands of ruin, mystery, and decay! Make a pledge to begin your adventure and choose your own path!
      3D printed and painted model depicted above. This piece was printed with a Creality CR-10 and Creality Ender 3. Miniature not included, used to demonstrate overall scale of model. Not affiliated in any way with any companies who produced the 28 mm miniature knight used to show scale in the photographs. The Forsaken Lands terrain collection is designed for 28 mm tabletop wargames and role-playing games. Each pledge is delivered as an STL file pack, designed to be printed on your home 3D printer.
      Each model is to designed to capture your imagination and evoke feelings of mystery, through an ancient lived in world, full of ruin, decay and beautiful imperfection! All files are green lit in Meshmixer and Netfabb, are single shells, and have been extensively test printed and optimized. Printing instructions will be included in each pack.  As a complete set, each piece is designed for a full and diverse setup on your gaming table, intended for games that utilize elevation as well as larger terrain pieces and scatter.

Begin your long journey in the forsaken caverns where flickers of shadow swell up from the backdrop of ancient rocks and darkened pools amid the torchlight. Enter the land of the spiders as you traverse these narrow paths and hollows with untold numbers of eight-legged, bloodsuckers on the prowl. It would seem that a moment of respite can be found here, as you stumble upon the ruins of an ancient temple. But it is not the holy place it once was. Decayed and covered in thick overgrowth, mystery awaits you as you journey forth. Legend holds that a beautiful and powerful witch once dwelt in this great tower. After a tragic loss, her madness grew in a storm of grief. Some say she still lingers here, immortal, feasting on the flesh of all those who wander into the ancient mountain pass. Creatures of darkness plague this mountain village; there will be no sanctuary for you here. Those who still dwell here may prove even more dangerous than the night hordes responsible for the hundreds of dead buried nearby. An old villager takes you as far as they dare before sending you forth onto what the locals call, The Path of Despair. Here you find the ancient ruins of the city of Irkalla as ghostly moans rise up from the Gate of Souls...

      There's a bunch of stuff in the project, which closes at 2100 MST (2300 EST) on Tuesday, 19 Nov. Looks like they've run other projects, but I can't speak to how well.
       
      Which is partly why I'm posting this. Has anyone dealt with these people before? If so, how did it go?
       
       
      Note: Apologies if I've missed an existing thread; I tried several searches (company name and project name) and looked through the first three pages of "Live" tags without seeing anything, but I've missed threads before.

      Deadlands Lost Colony is a roleplaying game setting for the Deadlands universe and uses the Savage Worlds Adventure Edition game system. It takes place in 2097, thirteen years after the Last War in Deadlands Hell on Earth. Hellstromme Industries created a “Tunnel” between Earth and a distant star system later called Faraway. Millions of colonists settled on asteroid mining stations and the only inhabitable planet, Banshee, before the Tunnel collapsed and left them stranded. Now the humans must fend for themselves against a rogue military, ruthless pirates, angry anouks, the rise of an evil alien presence, and worst of all, the arrival of the Reckoners—made flesh on Earth and exiled to Banshee!
