Hi I am at the 1st sessione of kdm. We are at ly 3. I already have slenderman and i understand it is better than armored stranger. Is it ok to skip armored stramger since the start and go directly with slenderman?
Thanks

Yes the rulebook for Slenderman tells you to replace events and how.

Kingsman sucks but maybe you should try him first campaign at least.

I liked King's Man the first time we fought him. We just fought the level 2 version yesterday and I can see the fight becoming stale and annoying rather quickly.

I would suggest playing the core game without any expansions during your first campaign though.

If you already have 1-2 extra quarries (especially ones that enhance the mid to late game like the Sunstalker and DBK) I would never recommend going with an unchanged core game experience. Honestly the 30 year campaign should have come with 4-5 quarries in order to keep variety up.

Well sadly i dont have extra quarries yet... even if end of february I should get expansions of 2nd wave. Pratically all minus lion knight. But since probably once I end the game I would not play again for a long time. I was asking, i miss a lot of cool content switching armored stranger and kingsman for slenderman or in the end they are the same I mean lorewise.
will it make the game difficult/less difficult
Will it gives overall less frustation and more fun?

Then i will try armored stranger in another 2 or 3 years

Personally If you aren't going to do another playthrough for a long time after this, then its diffently better to put slenderman instead of armored strangers. 1) slenderman doesnt come with the kings curse which is may seem like a cool thing at first til mid-late game armor surpasses it without costing you a survivor.
2.) The rewards for the kingsman are pretty shit like not worth it levels the halberd is the only real prize from that fight and your not guaranteed to obtain it and later on you can have it taken away from you. The rewards for fighting slenderman are far better and it promotes back tracking to haunt the lion for the level 1 armor from slenderman the bracelets

3.) Slenderman just does more for your game party interaction wise, my friends like him way more than the fight aagainst the armored strangers if anything you can introduce him the year directly after the armored strangers if you really wanna get that OG experience

4.) The only real con to running slenderman is that level 3 can party wipe you pretty much instantly if you havent managed your insanity in preparation for the fight

TL:DR : slender is better/ you can introduce him after armored strangers and lose nothing at all from doing so. His settlement location is good for spamming core game quarry

Not that it makes it "easy", but you may have overlooked the rule in the showdown that you always reset everybody to 0 insanity at the beginning, so there's nothing to "manage" per se going in.

Nothing in the expansion process tends to be very mandatory, so you could theoretically choose to do both if you wanted. The intended change in the rules is to replace it.
