Succumb to the Blood Frenzy of the Tribe of Um'Gra!

Hail Savages!

We are getting very close to unlocking the next Stretch Goal, but in the meantime, how about we get to know a little better one of the tribes already in the HATE core box? Meet the bloodlusting savages of the Um'Gra tribe!

 

 

 

 

 

 

As the world choked on pallid dust, and the moon burned bright with fire and death, the Varn strode across the world as titans. Each man an army unto himself, each woman an arsenal of sorcery and guile. They ruled over lesser men, those incompetent former custodians, and wrought order or chaos to sate their whim. There existed only the masters and the slaves.  

In the pens, so too did hierarchies arise. It is man’s nature to build, to seek leadership, to bend knee. The most savage could rule for a time, often falling to the most intelligent, or treacherous. Yet, by strength or intellect, whether brute or plotter, a slave remained a slave, and all remained in shackles beneath the whip.  

Yet the whip served indiscriminate justice, its judgment rendered by wanton mongrels. The overseers were those blind enough, or fool enough, to believe themselves the whip’s master. They too were but slaves.  

All too often, the whip’s victims proved powerless. Impotent. Worthless. But the Varn do not bear the lash easily, and under duress, with passions inflamed, the blood of titans might manifest.

The Tribe of Um'Gra once ruled over all the others, though that time is now gone (but not forgotten). The men of the tribe are armies unto themselves. The women and powerful sorceresses and spiritual guides. They are reckless, and that is their strength (at the same time that it's their weakness).

In the battlefield, the Um'Gra tribe are masters of using Savagery to their advantage. They use it in all sorts of different ways to make different and devastating attacks. The Um'Gra must always strive to have more Hate accumulated during any battle they participate in. Having the most Hate allows them to unleash powerful effects!

Now let's take a closer look at the members of this tribe.

In order to help her tribe maintain their necessary lead in Hate during a battle, the Um'Gra Shaman's dark ritual generates an extra Hate whenever she KO's an opponent.

Finally, let's look at what this figures can look like when painted. These miniatures were painted by Angel Giraldez. As always, keep in mind that the figures will come unpainted.

      I think you guys are right about the promo video. The script along with the over the top announcer voice started to feel like satire at some point.

      As for the cards and the laungauge, I am all for it. The nature of the game is about basically fucking the very friends you invited to come play the game. I like titles tjat are blunt about that vs names like "Sharpen your Spears". I have several people in my group who prob wont play this not because of the content or theme but the fact its a 1v1 where you juat screw your opponent vs screw your opponent seeking the same goal.

      As for the rape stuff thier hands are tied with that. Laat thing you need is people finding out there is a game where you can rape your opponents for a gain . . . . . .

      I wonder if this campaign will hit a stretch goal that will start to unlock unique sculpts for all the minor warriors?

      (That feeling is only exacerbated by actively avoiding words like "rape", which comes up in the source material but was re-phrased as "ruined" in the ridiculous video from a couple of days ago. The overall impression is that they're trying to sell the game as edgy and offensive without actually BEING edgy or offensive. You can use your source material's edginess as a selling point, or you can water it down for the mass market. I'm not a huge fan of either tactic, but I'm willing to accept one or the other without much in the way of comment. Trying to do both, however, is simply not on in my book.)

      @william aull - +1. I've been pretty unimpressed with the tone since the first game preview. "Slaughter your foes and feast on their corpses" sounds like a grisly mature-themed game. "Fucking murder every fucking motherfucker you meet and shit them out" sounds like you're trying to appeal to twelve year olds.

      I'm surprised 'Come At Me' didn't say 'Come At Me, Bro'... I'm sure that's still the original thought behind it though

      Whoa whoa whoa... there's a card called 'Think Fast, Asswipe'? Sigh.

      Looking less and less like a 'mature-themed game for mature gamers' and more a 'mature-themed game for juveniles'
