Massive Darkness 2

Recommended Posts

Yeah this might break my CMON hiatus. Massive 1, was really nice. The minis were great. The game was fun... though only lasted a while in my group.

 

the updated kind of hinted it was demon themed. Face your demons... sounds demon themed! I’m excited.

I just did a big purge of my Massive Darkness 1 stuff.  Much of it went into the BoGW, and the rest went into the trash.

Gloomhaven fired everything (: but the MD miniatures are great and I used the orcs and goblins as a proxy race for GH. GH races need melee, ranged, and spellcasting units, and MD KS was one of the few ones that had them in sufficient numbers. Demon themed might work, since I still need demons for GH.

 

I hope CMON settles its auditing issues and fulfills several KS by then.

Haven't played the game often. Campaign mode (which was the most intriguing aspect) was not good.

Minis were great.

CMON has done a LOT over the last couple of months / years to alienate backers like me (the way they dealt with shipping costs, the way they communicated (not), the lukewarm offers of many of the recent projects that could only be turned around after they made the offer a lot better).

Add to that the fact that I'm not yet convinced that they are financially healthy (which means that even if MD 2 is a great offer, great minis ... I feel there is a risk of not getting what is offered ... or getting it a LOT later).

I'll probably pass.

Weren't they bought by Asmodee?

 

And Asmodee isn't in great shape either.

No, but they now use Asmodee as their North American distributor. That means that outside of items received directly from kickstarters CMON products effectively no longer offer customer service in NA from CMON itself. With Asmodee in charge of customer service replacement part for missing and damaged components no longer exist and the only means of service is working directly with the store the game is purchased from with varying results.

enjoyed the game (but the tacked on campaign rules were a bit rubbish), and the minis, especially the evil gnomes were excellent

 

looking forward to part 2 and hope they plan on campaign rules from the start this time in which case they might be worth using

I was only interested in it for the minis but had to drop out of the first one.  I keep hoping to get into the BoGW that had a ton of MD stuff, I finally snagged a Troglodyte Barbarian out of this round.

I wouldn't mind getting the elementals that never made it to retail.

 

Didn't that apply to a good chunk of the supposedly non-Kickstartet exclusive items?

      And now for something completely different.
      I have just launched the Facebook page for our latest collaborative effort - Ian Miller's Middgyr: Tower of Chaos!
      So what's this all about, I hear you ask? Here is a quick summary:
      A cold wind moans, its sighing a thousand alien voices breathing in your mind – meaningless, tenebrous. Yet promising everything. You look up at the great gates before you and at the impossible tower above. The gates are open. You take a step forward…
      Middgyr: Tower of Chaos is a co-operative dungeon crawl board game for 2-5 players set in a world plagued by war and the increasing influence of Chaos. Players fight for their lives as they explore the mysterious Tower of Chaos, high above the swamps of Middgyr, united in their quest to end the war, yet each with their own veiled agendas.
      Players take charge of four grim anti-heroes as they set out upon a vital quest that will take them through the twisted forests, crumbling bergs and foggy meres that crawl, slither and gibber from Ian Miller’s wonderfully dark imagination. One player takes control of the unknowable Tower of Chaos and its many devious denizens, acting as Game Master.
      The labyrinthine Tower of Chaos will offer an immersive gaming experience, fast-paced and intense combat, and many challenging puzzles for the players to overcome. Middgyr aims to deliver an experience that will capture the very essence of Ian Miller’s legendary artwork with an expansive, story-driven campaign mode containing many twists and turns, as well as a number of different outcomes. Make the right choices and untold power, fame and fortune awaits – make one wrong decision and oblivion is your only reward...
      If you are on Facebook, you can join the fun here [link to commercial site removed, if your on facebook just search for Middgyr and you should find the group]
      If not, watch this space as I will be creating the mailing list soon.
      Cheers everyone and stay safe!

      Hello 3D Print Artists and Tabletop Gamers,
      Quick introduction, My name is Ben Donges and I have been making video and tabletop games for the better part of 2 decades now. Currently, I run my own micro-studio Gnarly Tree Games. Sculpting my own figures, designing games, and 3D printing for the last 5 years and I love it.
      My first 3D figure campaign, Pirates of Atlantis will be launching shortly on Kickstarter. It is a fantasy Pirate campaign based on my boardgame Avast, with full-size Pirate Ships, Ancient Sea Creatures, and awesome Pirate Captains.
      This campaign will offer everyone a great number of figures that are highly detailed, with a great variety of content and some really head-turning pieces.
      I will be adding more preview content as I get closer to launching. Feel free to reach out to me and you can visit GnarlyTreeGames.com for more information.
