Well, since we were discussing part one, I figured I'd see if part two were posted yet - it has, so here we go.

Well, Kingdom Death: Monster's second kickstarter just closed, with a final total of $12,393,139. Which is crazy - I think that's the fourth highest total ever.

I'm in for about $380 or so - I was lucky enough to get in on the cheap game+gambler's box pledge level for $300, and went for the Zombicide and Pathfinder crossover packs.

This may well be the last big kickstarter for me in a long time, as I just got laid off.

Well, as part of my "Clean the house so it doesn't kill my wife" initiative this year, I'm starting to sell off a bunch of old RPG books I never use. As such, here's a link to all the games I've put up for sale.

So, +Alan B, it's been about six months since you last posted an update on the kickstarter, and two months since you last posted to this group.

Any news on the game?


I'm not selling it, but apparently the ebook of "Swords and Deviltry", Fritz Leiber's first collection of Fafhrd and the Grey Mouser stories, is on sale on various platforms for $1.99 today. Have a look!

Got my Skulduggery 5th edition NPC reward yesterday! Technically it was August 1st, but I think we can be nice and call it only a month late, which is practically early for a kickstarter. I haven't cracked the book or the decks of cards yet - but I'm cheerfully amused by the Crown Royal bag.

Had a fun game of Zombicide: Black Plague this afternoon at the gaming club I 'run' - If I'm doing this right, you should see a fun pic of the game towards the end. We were running with Silas and Samson from the base set, and Xena, Hitch, Bob and James from the Kickstarter characters. Sadly, Samson and James died from extra activation cards, zombies rousing at unexpected times to sink their teeth into the heroes.

We were running the 2nd quest from the main rulebook, which requires you to get both vault cards, pick up the objective in the center, and get someone to red experience level - which we finally managed to do after forcing the blue door and heading through. We ran into problems early on when an Abomination showed up on the first turn, but happily Xena was able to take it out with her superstrength, a trait that was helpful as we had trouble searching due to excessive zombie infestation and thus only ever found one torch, although we found several bottles of Dragon Bile. All together, we had a wonderful time playing, although the game did last for four hours.

Any other players in Denver?

This is Megadungeon 4 - I've backed Megadungeons 1-3, and they've all been high quality items delivered (roughly) on time with little problem. This time it's an urban map - one side is rooftops, the other is insides of the buildings. And Megadungeon 3 is the sewers underneath! http://kck.st/1S7VPJM
