Hello

As pledge manager is almost at the finish I need to finish it finally

Right now I've decided to take:

- Gorm
- Dragon King
- Slenderman

- Gryphon
- Black knight
- red Witches
- Nightmare Ram
- Campaigns of Death

I have money for one more addon and I was thinking about flower knight but I am not convinced

Anyone can help me choose my last addon ?

one more thing worth mentioning - I don't have any addon right now and I have gambler chest pledged already

Thanks in advance

I could be wrong but Campaigns of Death incorparates all of the existing add ons to 3 different Campaigns, so having all 12 would be good. Maybe I am wrong, maybe somebody can comment on that.

You should also say what add ons you own at the moment, if any.

But without further information I would recommend some Wave 2 expansions like the Dung Beetle Knight or Gorm. Gorm is "Node 1" so you will fight him more often than for example any of the Nemesis like Slenderman.

Unless I'm mistaken the red witches directly interact with the pariah expansion

Thanks for quick response

Right now I don't have any addons.

AS for the campaigns - I am afraid that all expansions are required but there is no such information about this and I am planning to buy all of the expansions later

As for the red witches - It's written that they have planned interaction with other expansions but I believe they are not required

What about the Screaming god or Ivory Dragon to add a extension to the length of your campaigns?

Or the Oblivion Mosquito to add two more encounters to your game as these could help provide a wider range of showdowns.

I am thinking about them as well

But I am not sure whether I would like to have those addons which extend a campaign.

If you don't have it as part of your pledge, you should consider the Gambler's Chest. It has the advanced rulebook, 2 nemeses, 2 different encounters and a lot of miniatures (with additional gear, fighting arts etc.)

+1 to this, the Gamblers chest has a huge amount of rules/expansion content within it. It's one of the things I'm most excited for.

We don't know yet how encounter system will work.
Also, if it adds a showdown before a showdown, it could be a real nuisance with the added fiddliness (of course, there might be some way to make it a smooth transition, but luckily I don't have to write that system ).

Anyway, let's not assume that this is how it will work, for now, ok? If the system sounds goods but plays horrible, Poots will change that a number of times before being satisfied.

Campaigns of Death description says it does include short form campaigns, as well. Though it does also very clearly say that it will only include custom campaigns for the existing 12 expansions. So even these short campaigns will only include the expansions available from 1.0.

The real value, in my opinion, is the guidance in how to create your own custom campaigns and the extra game content it comes with.

I think I'm hallucinating smiley faces.

It seems like there's one on every line.

I'd get the Dung Beetle Knight or the Flower Knight as your last add-on,
since you'll get it a LOT sooner than any new expansion.

Well that's true with smileys, too much of them

I've decided to take frogdog because of early quarry and screaming god because of campaign extension. (Thanks Crimsonsun )

But I will buy Dung Beetle as soon as possible and as soon as my wallet will recover.

if I was you, I push out slenderman and take DBK and FK

DBK is currently at a very good price.

not sure about the campaign of death with few for moment, but as you target to buy more after, sound ok and can be possibly usable, at least a part of it.

ok for frogdog.

but not sure about campaign extension. for me they need to have first hero, and I think Abyssal Wood / Inverted Mountain / Silver City look more sexy and deep than ivory dragon / screaming god.
I would have certainely take one of this 3 in my pledge.

I think I had do :
- Dragon King
- Gorm
- FK
- DBK
- Spidicules (for abyssal wood)

- Abyssal Wood
- (Gryphon or nothing)
- Nightmare ram
- (honeycomb &/or black knight &/or frogdog)

that's already 3 or 4 big campaigns + littles ones
and for nemesis, wait later (plus u have 2 in GC, one in DK campaign, one or 2 in Abyssal Wood)

personaly I did my choices around the 3 big expacs. what I want the most and what I can take now.
but if you love slenderman for example, just take it ^^

Hello Loïc

Perfect answer

Hmm I like slenderman and mechanics which are included with him.

I was thinking about DBK but I will have Dragon Knight and one more hunt for late game.

As for the screaming god - I love the sculpt And I think I would give a credit to check this campaign extension ;-)

But your post was very good and gave me few more thoughts about what I am going to take

I'd drop campaigns of death since it sounds like it will mainly work with the original expansions and you're only getting 3 of those. Then I'd add either the Gambler's Chest or one or more of the original expansions that appeals to you. I'd say the original expansions are a significantly better value than the new ones simply because you'll be getting them much sooner.

If you want a new expansion I'd go with first hero. It's both cheap and sounds like it will change the game quite a bit.
