I'm watching the Demigod campaign with interest at the moment. The minis are interesting and the rules are... complex.

The question is, do I really need this if I already have krosmaster? I see Demigods rules as being a lot more detailed but to the point that they seem a little bit too complex. That is where krosmaster comes out top, it is very easy to learn and play.

Also, Demigods has the awesome bit of having all the figures already included and removes the need for chasing down rare krosmaster figures and the constant need for expansion packs.

Up to you. It will really just come down to theme. Krosmaster's theme is really unique and pretty adorable. Demigods is typical fantasy; nothing really special about it at all.

Plus, let's be honest, the female models are pretty ridiculously sexist. That's not something we should be supporting anymore.

As for expansion packs, they'll certainly keep adding figures if they sell. It won;t be any different from Krosmaster.

That' how I kind of feel about this whole "sexism" thing. I mean, too each his own. If a women feels empowered by dressing a certain way, she should just go for it. If a miniature is thin, fat, strong, weak, sexy, ugly... these all exist and people should feel free to buy the miniatures they feel like. And parents should buy toys for their kids that they feel good about. As to what an ideal woman looks like? Didn't shakespeare say something like "beauty is in the eye of the beholder"?

As to this game, I think the miniatures are amazing! I think the game is well thought out, with pre-created pledges that will support the funding of this game in terms of manufacture and delivery.

How about we support them for everything else?
Who ever said that pledging for this game supports the way that the female image is portrayed

BTW, did you ever notice the krosmaster girls dancing around in boob tubes and bikinis? Oh look, the Queen of Tofus has her breasts hanging out shake

ANYWAYS

I would like to focus on the game play and rules when comparing this to krosmaster. Let's leave out the rest aye?

Hi!
I am a tester Rising Demigods and I have the Krosmaster Arena, and several Frigost Expansion Packs. To say that I am only one tester and I have nothing to do with the creator.
Now come to the point, we are both games of mismo.tipo but Demigods is more complete and covers more. It may seem more difficult and complicated, but it only seems, I assure you, in three games can learn the basics to play, the rest is tactics and wit. The first item you should only use rules to move and attack, would you include in a second match the skills and powers, and the third one starting finalmente.en letters Demigods. I assure you as a tester in three games and by adding rules that I learn the main thing. As for the style of the figures, Krosmaster is more fun and childish, but Demigods is awesome! Furthermore, the authors have decided to tweak the figures of women to give more consistent look with the war coming .. lol!
I hope you have served my opinion!

Ah but sex sells remember ?

Women have been into prostitution for 100's of years so based on the 'olden / fantasy times' when this was set, be glad they got some clothes on!!!

Setting aside the question of the validity of that argument (which it's worth noting is originally a woman's on her tumblr here -- http://rosalarian.tumblr.com/post/78124344560/feminism-is-ha...), do you not get that it's talking about real, live, living breathing women who are making choices (within incredibly fraught contexts, to be sure), not carved figurines designed for the gazes of those in a corner of a niche hobby occupied overwhelmingly by men, and that there's kind of a crucial difference there?

Hi , i played both game Krosmaster and Demigods (i´m spanish tester)
i have to say that if like type games how krosmaster, this go to like a lot more, have a complete system of rules (easy to learn) more complete than krosmaster

miniatures of krosmaster are cartoons chibi style, demigods are fantasy style.

now all depend what you like, but im sure if you like krosmaster type game, demigods is a good choice.

Hi guys,
The game is in the final stages of preparations for the relaunch. We are working on a new gameplay and pitch videos ATM. Proofreading is in progress. If all goes well we should go live in about 2 weeks. Game has been polished and streamlined, drop by and take a look.
