Same as last update.

Due to TGN's loss and apparent cheating, 4 items that had yet to be revealed were stricken from the running (I believe it was most if not all of the 70s.).

I don't know if you could say 4 items were stricken. Yes, he took out four of the entries, but he has also added 2 entries since the KS began so who can really say what is going on or what will happen.

Either way we won't know what is really in the chest until the KS is almost over so if you are looking for that kind of answer, check back after New Year's Day.

They haven't been stricken, they've been made into penalty boxes (which could even mean they'll give an extra bonus now; this is KD:M after all, where bad things - insanity - are actually good).

All the planned content in the Gambler's Box has been unlocked. Adam's just having fun revealing them during the campaign.

It would not suprise me if poots decides a fwe days latter to add some items to the list because... well why not 'the wind is blowing hard today'.

This whole buisness with the reveals is just some way for him to toy with us and make it a really insane journey. I bet he's reading the comments right now with one hand holding a beer and the other in his p*nts.

Poots only puts his hand in his pants when its things like TPK or reading people's session logs and experiencing sadistic glee.

I was asking if it's possible to find a description of all the expansions included in the Gambler's chest (I have only been able to see what is included without any description of what any single expansion provides).

Absolutely, that's exactly what I was thinking. Who knows what 'penalty' means in this context.

You mean the ones revealed so far? They were mostly described in the updates.

Philosophy of Death - An alternate XP/Development system for survivors
Scouts of Death - Survivor Figure. Rules for having an observer who can report back what happened if a Hunt fails. Or can join in the fight at the cost of risking not getting any gear back on a TPK.

Last Axeman Standing- A Survivor figure + Rare Gear Card
White Fang - A survivor Figure in White Lion Armour and Twilight Sword.

Nightmare Adam - A Survivor figure, another Fighting Art and an extra Philosophy for Philosophy of Death

Sci-Fi Aya - Promo SF Figure and two Gear Cards.

I didn't watch, but what kind of cheating were they doing?

We lost the first fight and we tried again with some of the KDM Development staff joining us on stream. During the 2nd hunt we got killed for no hunt XP so we replaced that so you can atleast do a 2nd offical try which also had us die.

So the cheats were re-try and replacing that hunt.

Has anyone heard anything on if the advance rulebook is going to be exclusive to the Gambler's chest or if it'll be available after the campaign?

So far it's looking like most of the unlocks for the chest are pin-up's and other things that aren't that interesting to me - if there's an option to pick it up later I'd rather spend that money on expansions.

Have those items been stricken? Or are they still in the box? I doubt Poots is going to remove rewards from the box.

Yeah, I don't think he's going to remove them. I think what he did is make it so that we have to roll the number TWICE now to unlock it. Once to remove the skull, again to see. So the real "penalty" is that some days, we won't get a Gambler's Chest unlock, but that item will then be unlocked for future rolls.

Also, for everyone worrying about what else is in the chest - stop worrying. It will all get unlocked by the end of the campaign. Best bet is to just ignore it, and in the last few days, you'll see everything and then can make a decision.

I think that the box has already the content estabilished, based on the funds raised, and the rolls are actually to REVEAL the content

...too crazy?

This is Poots we are talking about....development and business costs don't matter to him. What matters is if Poots wakes up with a random disorder that day or not. He rolls a D10 each morning for his disposition and what he will do with his products/business that day.

I suspect he's already videoed all the necessary die rolls and is just giggling with joy as he decides what to reveal next.

That accusation is why you see sticky notes with time and date in various videos.

Now that we have seen the new update, and the fact that he rolled one of the potentially removed boxes and still added a mini (Murderer) tells us all of the fear of losing out was unfounded. That box is going to have so much stuff in it...

Also, it would be easier to just change what is behind a specific roll, instead of changing the roll itself We actually don't have idea what's behind the closed boxes.

^^ This. Reading the comments on the KS makes me speculate that people who are having trouble wrapping their head around how the KS is being run are going to find the game nigh on impenetrable.

None of them are pinups, except maybe the freebie cyber Monday figure he threw in for fun.


All of the figures are game expansions with new rules and components. The narrative figures are per-configured version of existing armor kits, so that you can use them instead of building the armor kits.

The rule book will probably be available at some point, but it will likely be around $80.00. And won't come with all the little cards and figures that support the rules. If it does, it will be much ore than $100.00
