I decided to make a 1.5 version of my Rat King Expansion.

Its now much more of an expansion and not just a showdown.

If you want to print it, please first go through it to find any misspellings and the like, and I will release a corrected version.. or you can just wait a week and hope that everyone else finds everything that is in need of correction.

Wow, thanks! Super appreciated

I'll make the changes right away and add those to the download mirror. I'll hold the a new upload on the download page a little longer (as that needs approval, and I don't want to steal the BGG staff's time unnecessarily).

I'll get back when that is done.
Edit: Done. Changes to booklet, 1 AI card and 1 FA card.

Having printed out the previous version already, are there any cards that have not been changed so I don't have to print them again?

I haven't tried this expansion yet but it's cool.

You need to print out page 1 (plus page 2 for the backside) from the AI card sheet, no other AI cards have changed.
All other pdfs need reprinting (all but last 5 hit locations, on last page, have changed).
You could probably also reuse the front page from the booklet I guess.

Thanks! now fixed in version 1.5.2 (see download mirror). Also noticed I had missed an apostrophe in "years' time".

Are there any 3D printable miniatures you could use for the Rat King?

Loving this.

I can make you a "professional" rat king crest to match the KD crests if you want.

DO you have these set up to post sizes of cards with bleeds included for printing?

You can see some of the crest I did here:

Absolutely, you are more than welcome to do that

No.. but I guess it wouldn't be very hard to do? I unfortunately don't know what formats printers would like to have, so I would need more info on this.

For the bleed, you just need to add .125” on each side, adding in just the background which allows for printers space for varied cut mistakes.

As to the graphics, I will get you a crest and a header graphic ASAP.

Ok, and that should be done just for the png images? Or do they want you to add the images with the added bleed to pdf files or something like that (and if so, what size/format)?

Just PNG's would be perfectly amazing.

Can you PM me your email address, so I can email you the card and crest image?

This looks awesome! Does anyone know the typography in the US which does a decent job at printing board games? Never done it before

Wow! I am completely mind blown. That's the most amazing art I have seen

Also, I'm sorry that I don't reply very fast. Work + kids makes me only able to check in to this during evening hours (Swedish time).
I have finished the bleeding edges for about half the work, I'll work on the new art tomorrow, and then continue with the edges. I can perhaps be finished with everything before the weekend.

PS. Also grabbing this as my new desktop art. So awesome!

---------------

Also, if anyone wants to rewrite some parts of the Rat King, like better/more interesting chunks of texts, you are more than welcome. Other ideas are of course welcome to.

And unless anyone complains, I'm thinking of making the Rat King more rewarding..
Probably always giving out some loot after a victory, like the one from having the Pottery innovation... and then Pottery could instead yield an automatic "Adapting Mass" perhaps?
He does take up hunting years (no resources gained those years) and gives your settlement pesky "Menace" cards.. and if you face him too often during yearly years, he will most surely instill a TPK.

Also thinking if there is any good way to add easy access to Overwhelm (Red, Blue, Green) to non-Rat King campaigns, like a rule variant? A "Pet" innovation perhaps? That makes you optionally able to gain one instead of you Age 1 milestone?
But only if someone wants that, just to be improve Speed in other campaigns.

I love helping. You put hard work into making an awesome add-on... I am just here to help make it look and feel visually one step closer.

Excited to see your next version!

Use this link, the PDF should look clearer (vectorized the rat graphic.)

Version 1.5.5 has been uploaded now (see mirror), with all the new art.

The bleed version is not ready yet though. I'll continue working on that tomorrow.

Edit:
In the download mirror you can now find a png version with edge bleed.
Also changed version number to 1.5.6, as I rebalanced 3 AI cards: Rat Swarm, Hungry Rats and Lord of Fleas.

I think I am done now, unless I receive further feedback from you.

My two biggest worries, that i feel have not been play tested enough are:
- Are some of the menace penalties set too high? Like the "keep only 3 resources" should perhaps be set higher?
- Should the Rat King be more rewarding to defeat? since he steals hunt years. What would you change?
