Im sure most would agree that having a new Hunt table to roll on would be an excellent.

Simply add new Hunt cards With a new symbol on them that refer to the new table. Simply roll the 2 d10 dice as usual but consult a different table when 1 of these cards appears in the hunt track.


100 new hunt events would go a long way to keeping KDM from becoming repetitive. Many of us have played it a lot already.

I've mentioned this elsewhere, but I would love to see the Hunt Phase evolve into a deck game closer to the AI deck of a monster, built with unique contents for each hunt that can be manipulated by survivor skills and equipment.

Both great ideas IMO. In a perfect world I would love to see the second idea implemented, just because I love me some meat on my bone.

Hunt phase is the weakest part of the game atm, really should look into these Poots! (Or maybe he's already on top of this -- wouldn't be surprised to hear about a revamped Hunt Phase as part of the 1.5 update)

Agree. I like the hunt phase but it gets repetitive for sure.

+1.

Something to liven-up the hunt would certainly be welcome.

I saw an interview with him on this site and he said that the hunt phase was the weakest part of the game and that it needed improvement.
So hopefully we'll see some updates to the hunt phase.

Didn't he mention somewhere that 1.4 (now 1.5) would include a revamp of the hunt events to make them moreo consistent with the flow of the game stories?

It seems fairly clear to me Poots has read the forums. He clearly knows the main complaints/suggestions and we're already seeing ample evidence that he's listened to them - the new final boss, the male pinups, the mention of tweaks to higher level hunts... All fixes to common gripes.
Even the philosophies of death seem similar to common houserule suggestions - adding a 'class' mechanic. I'll be quite surprised if the hunt events aren't altered as part of 1.5 or, more likely, given an 'alternative' in the Gambler's Box.

I bet that would heavily increase sales of the box. For those that weren't willing to plunge head first from day one anyhow...

Is there any indication from the card lists that the Hunt Phase may be different? White lion with 8 hunt events, screaming antelope with 9, others with none (?), then the 12 basic hunt event cards. Do these numbers differ from the 1.0 card set?

i dont think so, but then he might be keeping it a secret for the 1.5 update reveal. Simply having nmore random hunt events would only take say 3 new cards and 4 pages of 100 new hunt events.

Our group has an additional 100 very lore friendly hunt events we use by rolling a d10. Evens for original hunt events and odds for the new ones.

I can post it up or pm if anyone is interested.

Today I asked him about which changes would be made to 1.3 (apart from the known 1.4 cards and the new survival of the fittest card) and this is what he answered:

"@ArtSchool, well I've already said on camera that we are nerving Saviors and that the hunt table had a huge internal pass. So, no point in denying that or referring you to the bush i like to beat around."

- So at least they are doing a huge review of the hunt events table, whatever that means.

Latest update briefly touches on the fact that the hunt table was reworked.

From the update:

"We've gone ahead and completely upgraded the Hunt Table! You'll notice greater attention to the world and narrative aspects as well as some adjustment to language to make things clearer and better fit the Kingdom Death spirit!

"Taking a Whip out on a hunt is now extremely useful and can save you and your group from peril. Cancer Pidgeons No Problem!!"


Not quite as crunchy maybe as some of us were hoping, but it sounds a lot crunchier than before.

Ok, now THIS has me genuinely excited for the new rules and such. The stuff about the Hunt Table (as well as the fact that the philosophy system seems to be adding conditional upsides to things like Murder) is hopefully a huge step in the right direction for the game.

The first few times I got completely screwed by a random event it was kinda fun, but the more I play the game the more I want the Settlement and Hunt phases to be like the Showdown phase, where proper planning and strategy can actually help you. If that's the way these updates are headed, I'm extremely optimistic for this game in general. It's already my favorite game, but, hey, even more favorite-er sounds great!

I'd still wager a small expansion that the Gambler's Box might contain a more in depth or alternative hunt system
