Came across a Kickstarter from CMON's RPG publishing arm (Didn't know they had one) for a RPG about various Fairy Folk living in an abandoned mansion.

Not a RPG player myself, so I can't comment much on the game, but it does use special dice which seems a bit limiting:-

There is a link to some quickstart rules on the page to have a look at though.

 

My interest is in the set of minis (It is a CMON Kickstarter after all):-

Unfortunately, I can't get the figures without also pledging for the RPG at least at the PDF level, so I've got this on remind while I ponder if the minis are worth the extra $30.

I like Floyd & Timothy, but once you said CMON, I'm out on this one. Hopefully it's worth it to people that want it thou.

 

I'm hoping as it's only kinda, sort of coming from CMON (As part of the same megacorp umbrella) and if I do back, I'm only after a handful of figures and not the big heavy books, it won't be subject to the same sort of shenanigans I hear their projects are usually plagued by.

They've put out a 2nd figure set for this, and they're not the ones I was expecting:-

They've been unlocking minis as stretch goals, so I was expecting them to become an add-on set when they were all unlocked, but nope different dudes.

So whether I back this or not is now entirely down to the stretch goal minis becoming a 3rd set, my inner collector couldn't cope with not having all of them, regardless of how much I really want that guy with the Key-gun.

CMON's published a zombicide RPG. I'm sure the component quality will be good, but there's already errata. : https://roebeast.blogspot.com/2011/03/deodorant-container-scratchbuilding-and.html

 

RPG authors look to have a good background. I've noticed that CMON uses a good variety of international game designers. "Winner of the Roleplaying Game of the Year in 2019 in Italy, Household is the latest game by the ENNIE Awards nominated authors of Broken Compass, Riccardo Sirignano and Simone Formicola, and is beautifully illustrated by Daniela Giubellini."

Maybe ask for an "all-in" for the miniatures?

Well that explains why they haven't done a set of stretchgoal minis yet, they weren't finished adding them:-

As much as I like the minis using unusual weapons, the animal handler ones are the best.

Urgh...

 

Since this one is getting close to wrapping up and they're still adding more stretch goal minis, I thought I'd ask them when they were going to hit the add-on section, and... They're not, they are staying exclusive to the top tier pledge level.

Now I've got to decide if I can justify spending over $200 (closer to $300 with shipping) on 30 minis.

 

A decision they didn't make any easier by adding a dude with a pet snail:-

Last day for this one.

 

Still adding more game stuff and more importantly (IMO) more minis:-

Cleric with Key-Mace.

Assassin with Pen Nib Punch-Dagger.

 

I've decided to back this in the end, I haven't been this excited for a set of minis for years (As you can probably tell from all my posts on the subject!) so I'm not too disgruntled at having to pick up all the RPG stuff as well.

I can always try and sell the books when they arrive.

I missed the end date of this, I just wish you didn't have to go all in at $150 to get those excellent stretch goal minis.  And this being CMON the odds of them being individually for sale are pretty slim.....

      A co-author and I have started a venture and would appreciate you checking out our RPG supplement!! This is our first KS project, but I’ve been here on the forums for years. We’ve backed tons of projects and all well-versed in KS.
       
      Little secret…the project is named in homage to my favorite band. 😆
       
      Please scope out our project! See you at ReaperCon.

      They took a long time to come live with this one.......
       
      like their other one (Sombras) Reina Roja has chosen an artist with some just askew of normal surreal artwork to draw from.    His insta is here Gary Villarreal
       
      Looks like the only complaints on their previous KS (Sombras) were shipping delays and people who didn't seem to understand that they were ordering multipart resin models and were determined to kick up a storm about how this wasn't what they thought they were ordering.

      CMON project.  I usually avoid those.
