@Jerry Lantern Festival is still waited upon. Lion God and Lion Knight only has rare gear in them, so you can either use the divider or put them with the other rare gears.
Has asnyone recieved the Lantern Festival Expansion?
Finally got round to opening all the expansions I don't seem to have any Lion God or Lion Knight gear (rare gear yes) yet there aired dividers , am I missing gear ?
Does anyone know of a full card list so I can check content ?
Well he said he wants this kickstarter locked up 99% before the new one so that's 29 more days. And I'm totally in for the next kickstarter. I owe Poots and Co that much. Was an all in backer and saved over a grand vs street. Least I can do is dump more cash into the coffers.
Naw, I won't be doing anymore Kingdom Death kickstarters because of the absolute lack of comms.
I guess you guys aren't on "Poot's" time yet. :p
Poots didn't say which November. This is getting silly though.
Well, Mr Poots.... it's almost Halloween..... slipping into October is looking towards slipping into November....
Does anyone know if the Flower Knight Expansion Special Painting Guide was released? I've been trying to look for it, but don't see a physical copy nor do I see it posted on KingdomDeath's site.
I'm quite excited about it, I check this page 2-3 times/day, even though I'll receive a KS notification. However I've gotten so used to pootsian time.
So quite here... No one is excited for the last update on Lantern Festival ? It's already 20th Oct so I'm expecting news any day now.
Spoilers, people of the sun.
I'm liking the idea of changing the people of the sun campaigns ending. Fight a level 1 sun stalker directly after the final boss* (wounds bleeding tokens etc. carry over) and any survivors (plus some of the the innovations) go on with their gear into a standard campaign. This would replace the starting fight with the lion.
Obviously starting the game with potentially 4 characters with end game gear/stats + some innovations would make the game super easy so I'll need to balance it, increasing the nemesis encounters by a level would be an obvious start.
*This would represent fighting off one of the baby sun stalkers to escape.
That's what the lantern festival is for. To continue the story.
My friends almost wanted to stop playing after we wiped at the watcher and they waned to read the "ending". Not because that they knew the ending, or anything like that. But because -spoiler- the campaign and alternative starts, either end with the survivors dying on their way to the "last boss", or they beat the last boss and the settlement still gets wiped out. No good ending = no point in helping the survivors beat the "final boss".
So we did the simple thing, and made up our own ending. But really, whats the point to help the survivors if they all die in the end anyway?
Well, we will prob play more soon again. But after playing 3-6h/day for 3 weeks, we are taking a break :P
@SavageHenry I realized you were being sarcastic but that didn't change the main point of your post which was this campaign still hadn't been completely fulfilled. I am also assuming your reddit comment is sarcasm since I type in complete sentences, so am obviously not a reddit poster. :)
My guess is that he's waiting to have the Lantern Festival stuff in hand and ready to ship before he says anything about it, similar to what he did with the other expansions. Since he already tied the art book release to the Lantern Festival shipping (spoilers...) that means we won't hear anything about the art book other than "working on it" either.
On the plus side the September update sounded pretty confident that delivery of the Lantern would happen before black friday.
terribly sorry daniel, i forgot that people who spend all their time on reddit can't identify sarcasm in the wild if it isn't followed by /s
oh and you can get a refund for star citizen
lol SavageHenry, spot on! Super cool Poots promised Sept update was the norm "not gonna meet another promised deadline" and still no word when the update will be.
@SavageHenry Unlike starcitizen, 95% of the stuff in this campaign has been delivered. Just the Lantern Festival and a few tertiary rewards like the digital artbook are still pending.
Starcitizen is still collecting funds and its scope is growing by the day. All I wanted was a cool little single player campaign...
they will be three years late in less than a month
what is this, star citizen?
savagehenry you need to travel into the future.
how do i access the digital artbook
I'm not saying there will not be any new content, but I think KS is pretty loose with those rules. I've seen projects for reprints of old board games that only had a small amount of updates and almost no stretch goals for exclusive content.
I think that is a reality: there will be new expansions and experiences, Adam told so. Now, aproaching the time when we will know which options he offers: male pin ups, ram expansion with dungeon mode, people of the fox... there are a lot of possibilities!
Yes, that was what I was getting at. Even without stretch goals it won't be only the reprint.
New expansions, just to be clear.
@CM I'm pretty sure that if the main kickstarter item is an expansion and the reprint is an add-on, it's a viable loophole around that.
@J Durrant- It really can't be just a reprint. It would require at least some new content to be within Kickstarters rules.
I expect that he'll have a few expansions ready to go (4-5 but not 12 like last time), especially since all the core game assets are ready to go. He'll surely have less crazy low prices as well, as he might not want to lose a lot of grands again.
What happened to our picture when you look at all the games you've backed? Or is it only missing for me?
I will be very surprised if this KS, after factoring in stretch goals, ends up just being a reprint of the core game. Pleasantly surprised though, as I'd see it as Poots learning and not biting off more than he can chew again.
Personally I think I'd go for, reprint, some new single plastic minis and maybe one new expansion. Add the cost of shipping the expansion alone to the cost of it up front, that way 2 stage shipping is expected and prepared for.
Save new expansions for future KS.
@Andy ouch that's a bad situation, what parts are you missing?
@Mathieu: expansions already shipped some months ago. Only Lantern festival got pushed back. Further announcements regarding lantern festival probably end of September/start of october.
You should contact the support team for what has happened to your expansions.
@Mathieu: ça fait un bon bout déjà que les extensions sont arrivées. Contacte les au plus vite si il te manque de quoi.
I kinda lost track of the shipping progress of this Kickstarter. I've got my base game, but haven't received any expansions (yes I've pledged for a couple). When are they supposed to ship? The twitch game seems to have a bunch already.
@Andy & Lorna: Other than the Lantern Festival, there's not really any reason for him to do any update here. He's already said most/all news would be coming from his newsletter from now on anyway, except for the very last (#100) Kickstarter update.
If you signed up for the newsletter, you'd see he just updated everyone on the Kickstarter:
"Final KD:M Kickstarter Update still planned for Sept, but might slip to October.
- Lantern Festival - Still planning announcements this month, might slide to October, really hoping it won’t.
- Aya Painting Guide - Complete
- Kara Black Skin Painting Guide - Complete
- Digital Art book - Joe, Anna and I have been working on it!
- Holiday White Speaker Nico Settlement Card - Going to add this to the printed card pack (along with the cards from the recently released plastic models, that many backers already have). These will be available for cost + labor + shipping.
My intention is to have one final update for all the outstanding rewards listed above. While it was scheduled for September, a few things might push it back. Regardless, I want to ensure that Kickstarter 1 is %99.999999 wrapped before we launch Kickstarter 2."
Aye. An Expansion Box would be much appreciated.
@Andy the new ks is just to reprint the core game
"Let’s go ahead and make it official. We will be launching a kickstarter to fund the reprint of Kingdom Death: Monster on Friday November 25, 2016 - Black Friday. I will be offering no details or glimpses, as I prefer to keep it a surprise. "
Knowing that that they are about to start another Kickstarter when they haven't even completed this one doesn't fill me with hope or warm feelings. There have been no updates here in so long, and for a Kickstarter that still hasn't finished it's fulfillment this is a problem. I have spent over a thousand dollars and still don't even have an undamaged base game in hand. Replacement parts for defective/damaged components have still not been made available. I have a code I was given months ago for when the online store has replacement parts available for purchase. The Lantern Festival expansion has not been provided. There has also been no update on the challenge scenarios since "printed pack of cards will eventually make its way to our online store, available for free + packing and shipping".
I do hope he uses the new KS as a chance to release some more expansions as well.
I remember there being a Major expansion in the works called the Nightmare Fox? And the settlement could live in tunnels under its lair? I want to see that :)
But if i have only ONE wish for an extra to add for everyone... It would be a second box to store all the expansion content in. I already have everything but i cant fit all the cards and it makes me a very sad panda...
Only one lantern year after the first Kickstarter too!
Oh I truly hope so.
It's coming!!! :)
The Knight looks good. she's still not the long awaited Kingdom Death Paladin 'though :(.
I believe there might be some alternate monsters & alternate nemesis monsters. What I do know is that Adam seemed to mention having a special pledge level for returning backers to only get the stuff they haven't got and any updated things as well.
i assume its a print of the updated rules and stuff. hope there will be a cheap teir for us who only need the updated stuff and not a whole new box
Just had the newsletter come through! New kickstarter starts 25 November!!!!!!! :D
According to the August update ( https://kingdomdeath.tumblr.com/ ) the art book will "most likely" be taken care of this month. There is also supposed to be some sort of news regarding the Lantern Festival this month.
Did the digital artbook ever actually get sent out yet? I know it's supposed to be "last"
@cadium Also, there will be no more updates on KS. You need to follow the KD newsletter, or just come and ask here I guess. One of the regulars always has the latest info.
It's being completely reworked focusing on towns/cities instead of settlements. The final Kickstarter update in September will talk about it in actual detail.
