Now that a lot of people is going to receive their first copy of KD:M core, I suspect it is extremely important that we tackle the nastiest monster in the core game and current expansions:

Spoiler (click to reveal)
the spelling


This one is so bad because it is the only one monster that the game creator cannot (for his own admission) properly conquer 100% of the times.

Now, since I know this is a rather touchy subject, I prepared a SPOILERed guide for everyone who struggled with it at least once (myself included):

Spoiler (click to reveal)




First row: To the left, you can see an important settlement location. To the right, there is a disorganized score of enemies branded with Lanterns.

Second row: You can see a top tier shield and a dinosaur made of cheese (admittedly, that cheese is not feta, but making a dinosaur in feta would have had consistency issues )

Third row: This last one seems to mostly trouble non-english speakers. We are talking of a beloved monster that provides many key gear, locations and uses for cooking against a common ungulate that abuses of Twitch.



I have seen a lot of people struggling with these at least once around here (again, including myself), so I wanted to tackle the issue once and for all. There are probably many other topics I did not touch, but I hope that the community will fill in. You are welcome.

So are the inconsistent and deliberately vague rules the second hardest monster in the game?

You can call it that way, yes.
Basically, it is having fun of the misspelling that happen every time with this game. The three above are the most common ones, and (especially the Lantern Horde) were misspelled by Adam himself many times.

After waiting an extra year and holding their breath that this thing would ship, the first thing you saw when you opened your shipping cartoon was the KS rewards box which proclaimed "Thank you bakcers!"

The spelling mistakes in this game are so awful they're laughable (though some people get pretty upset about them).

Yeah, although bakcers is now the correct way to spell it, and we should never forget the secret farts from Sunstalker expansion.

It's just secret farts. You can still see it in the store page pitch for sunstalker expansion.

Back then, I have reasoned that it's shortened, like "secret f.art", but really, at this point I'm lying to myself. The man did it on purpose and is still laughing.

Adding another that is a fan favorite:

To the left: one of the core concepts your survivors decided to base their lives, and deaths, on.
To the right: One of Bart Simpson's antagonists.
