When the Gencon exclusives were first revealed a lot of people, me included, were fairly negative about having to buy duplicate figures to get the cards. After the hubbub Poots announced the cards would be released separately alongside the already released figures. The uproar died out pretty much immediately, but in the general excitement of the 'con and people went on to other things.
I know he lurks here so thank you. I've poured more money than I care to admit into Kingdom Death, it's nice to see that kind of consideration given so quickly for the fans. It's not as common as you'd think.

Yeah, on a similar note, his interviews seemed really honest and interesting. For example, with the Lantern Festival he basically just admitted it didn't seem good enough and needed a complete re-work, and then went into some of the potential changes for the 1.4 edition. I really appreciate that kind of candor.

You can tell this guy is really trying to do what's best for his game and his fans.

For some reason it appears that the cliche-distant image of Adam poots which has been created around him looks like very far away from what some fellow posters have written, and I am glad to read so. What goes without doubt is the fact that kdm is a labour of love.

Thanks for the link! I hadn't seen that one yet. A bit of new info and interesting to hear Adam talk a bit more about the world.

I was thinking about spidicules a few months ago and whether it was based on a real species, best I thought of was daddy longlegs so cool to hear that mentioned. I like the fact that in reality they are harmless to humans but in the game the tables are turned!

I'm pretty sure he was only referring to the cards associated with figures that were released during the kickstarter. A card pack will be available for those specific figures since there is a high chance we already own them. The rest of them that were brand new releases @ gencon we will still have to purchase to get their cards.

I wouldn't call him distant, just far too busy to fit everything in the day. Which, as a side effect, makes you appear distant if what you are focused on at the moment isn't what everyone else is focused on.

It is quite remarkable what Adam is doing, delivering a fantastic game and in a relative short time releases alot of really good expansions. Then when one of the expansions while almost done, shows to be well below the quality of the others, he just takes it back on the working table. Alot of the big companies out there would have just released the expansion and let people hate or love it, since it would sell due to the base game and other expansions.

I have to say in a lot of ways I admire and am jealous of Poots. The guy gave up a 9-5 life to do what he truly loves. And he is great at it. I know behind all that success is a never ending stream of hard work from him but I definitely admire what he has been able to accomplish.

Out of curiosity; did anyone take or ask for a photo with Poots at Gencon?
