Description Edit | History

Kingdom Death: Monster is a fully cooperative tabletop hobby game experience. Set in a unique nightmarish world devoid of most natural resources, you control a settlement at the dawn of its existence. Fight monsters, craft weapons and gear, and develop your settlement to ensure your survival from generation to generation.

Campaign System
Embark alone or with up to 4 friends (6 with game variant) on a 25-lantern-year campaign, with each year consisting of a cycle of hunt, showdown, and settlement phases. The settlement phase is an intricate civilization building game in which you spend very limited resources to build buildings, research new technologies, train your warriors, and set up your strategy for survival. During the hunt, you'll encounter a series of stories in a "choose your own adventure" style journey through various events and encounters. Finally, when you meet the monster you're pursuing, you'll engage it in an a massive arena-style battle where only one party is going to survive. If your party lives, you'll be able to bring the spoils back home to use in expanding your settlement.

Monster AI System
Each of the 7 monsters included are controlled by their own pair of decks that scale to 3 levels of difficulty (except for the final encounter, which has only 1 level and it's HARD!). Every encounter, even with the same monster, is highly variable and no two showdowns will resolve the same way. Players will have to plan their gear and keep their minds sharp to prevail.

Gear System
In Kingdom Death: Monster, survivors will craft gear from resources earned from defeating monsters or found on their hunt. Each survivor has a 3x3 gear grid. Selection and arrangement of your gear cards is critical, as many provided bonuses and activate special rules when aligned correctly.

Story Event System
40+ Story Events plus over 100 hunt encounters will shape and guide your campaign. Story Events detail important evolutions in your civilization, introduce new monsters, and provide rich detail for your campaign. Some will trigger automatically as you progress through the campaign, but most will be entirely based on choices players make.

Story Events cover everything from setting up and fighting a monster to key events that happen within the overall story. Some are triggered directly from the timeline and others from choices you make in game.

5 Kingdom Death Armour and Wound tokens.
Hi all. Having played a few games of Kingdom Death now I was getting pretty tired of the constant erasing of armour and wounds. Not only was it leaving the character sheets in a sorry state, but everywhere I looked there is rubber shavings. So I came up with this token sheet. The tokens are designed to be printed back to back. I laminated mine to make them harder wearing. They can be used to represent armour in a location and wounds taken. Just take from the pool or throw back what you don't need anymore. No more rubbing out... Let me know what you think.

3 Settlement Manager
Spreadsheet based Settlement manager. I created this spreadsheet to keep track of my different settlements. I think it does a much better job at tracking all of the aspects of the game. The spreadsheet includes separate pages to track overall settlement progression, survivors, resources and gear. The overview of the settlement has the most improvements and helps to keep track of each of the different game phases. It is very helpful to keep track of your innovation deck. The innovations that I currently own are highlighted green and the innovations that are in my innovation deck are highlighted in yellow. The innovations are setup so that once you get an innovation you highlight the cell directly to the right to add to the innovation deck. I have also included notes that...

6 Erasable character sheet/card
I created specific sheets, the same size as cards, to write down the armor, survival and brain values of survivors. Print the file, cut the card, sleeve it, place it over your character sheet and use a white board pen so you can erase the values after each showdown. You just have to write survival and brain values on your character sheet when you stop playing. You don't waste character sheets anymore.
