Well, who'd have thought it? I have to admit to being very intrigued by/attracted to the new edition Kingdom Death: Monster currently hoovering up vast quantities of cash on Kickstarter.

Well, goodness!


More specifically, having watched a couple of promotional and unboxing videos, I am excited by the thematics of the thing:
- the minis are astonishing
- the concept is immersive
- the story is rich and odd and scary and dark.

In some sense, it feels like a box set TV serial that everyone else has gotten in to and is telling all their friends about; most of these I can take-or-leave but some, like The Returned or True Detective just hooked me from their first moments and had me utterly-gripped. Will Kingdom Death: Monster have the same effect?

It looks like a lot of stuff, doesn't it?


Maybe I'm harking back to my early gamer days when Roleplaying was all I knew (and cared about/looked forward to)? Maybe I'm becoming jaded by Euros and this growing feeling of longing is the visible symptom of this internal malaise?

There are a few days left yet so I may decide to jump in at the Lantern (core game 1.5, $250) level. That's a LOT of money, though. A very much lot. An awfully, yes, lot.


In the meantime, here is a more accessible - i.e. free! - (Festive) monster:

Now THIS is an EXCELLENT promo!
