    Compendium The overlord: tome 1 (EN).

    My compendium finally arrived! Bend but not creased so fortunately I'm all good.

    Monolith.... Buffy?

    No, I perfectly know what I'm talking about Mythic Games created all 3 games: Mythic Battles, Joann of Arc and Solomon Kane. They developed mechanic for all three of them, and instead evolving single mechanic, they made 3 vastly different, but smart and working mechanics (at least in MB:P and JoA. We can't say for sure about SK just yet). And that was my point. Who produced the game (MB:P in that case) and who owns the rights to the game does not matter in this case. I understand your point of view, but comparing RPG games to BoardGames in my opinion does not prove your point. Tabletop games are more constrained in their nature than RPG. In RPG mechanic is just tool to work your story with players, and in all RPG books I've read there is always sentence that says that DM may change/break rules if it fits his adventure/scene better. Can you imagine Overlord in Conan changing rules because it fit's him better? Not really, since in tabletop games rules have fundamentally different role. Better analogy would be comparing THS games with computer games in my opinion. For example with FIFA (basically same game every year with slight changes in mechanic) or even better, Assassins Creed (different setting in every game but same mechanic with slight changes). I don't know if you played Assassins Creed but I did. And first 2-3 games were new and enjoyable then they became more and more boring in terms of gameplay...

    Monolith.... Buffy?

    I do not deny that Buffy would fit well in THS. However personally I am against it. It may not be really wise from business stand point but I would prefer to reserve THS for Conan and Batman series only (so 2 franchises, 3 games for now). Mechanic works and is great, however I don't see myself buying more games based on it beyond Conan and Batman (I still have hard time buying Batman, since Conan with updated mechanic is coming next year). I would prefer to get new mechanics for future projects. In that sense I really like how Mythic works: They made 3 games so far (Mythic Battles, Joann of Arc and now newly announced Solomon Kane), each with different mechanic.

    Batman stretch goals

    I agree. Game is KS Exclusive and there are two simple pledge levels, so Monolith have opportunity to design storage solution for all-in pledge to accomodate game + all expansions + all sg into 2-3 big boxes.

    Upgrage for 1st Edition?

    I think that all expansions will be reprinted during KS, either as Stretch Goals or as Add-ons. I mean, there is no reason not to do this, and it is almost certain that Claustrophobia will be another successful campaign. However, if you have base game and hope to buy only expansions it will be unlikely because: 1. Normally during KS to get add-ons you need to buy base game (that was the case in all KS I backed) 2. They probably will not be compatible with previous editions (different card backs, different tokens, and probably core rules will be changed)

    Should we expect tracking/notification, or are they sent by standard post?

    Mythic battles, what future ?

    And finally we got answer to this question: Mythic Games next project will be miniature board game based on Solomon Kane!

    Conan 2019 : choose the new expansions.

    That is also what I'm hoping for. New stand-alone core box (or two, like in Batman campaign) and upgrade pack for old box if rules changed dramatically.
  10. I see your point of view, and I agree that art/sculpting that should not be limited (unless it is funded by government - so basically everyone's - money, but that separate debate for other topic). However I do feel that your proposition is not feasible. Alternate miniatures still need to be sculpted, alternate illustrations need to be painted, molds need to be made etc. That costs money, and, while during KS people who want alternate versions/less nudity are very vocal and persistent, they tend to be minority of backers, so it simply may be too expensive to do. Basically what I'm saying is: Don't count on alternate versions and don't have high hopes for them, but ultimately it is Monolith that has all the data and it is Monolith that will make final decision. That being said, Vikings have less nudity than Greeks (because of cold in the north probably ), and current sculpts follow this trend. Personally I would welcome and hope for miniatures similar to Serpent Clan from Blood Rage, but it seems like Monolith is going for more realistic depiction of Vikings. But after Conan and Mythic Battles Campaign, and seeing Batman previews I do feel that Monolith is really, really good at grasping heart and soul of source material, even if it is not really popular decision in mainstream (vide Conan nudity issues). So I believe that they whatever they will do I will like it, and I hope that they will keep this attitude during their next campaigns (specially Conan ).

    Conan 2019 : choose the new expansions.

    I'll quote myself from another topic:
  12. I don't know if it's just me, or is it picture fault, but her face looks like zombie.
  13. Campaign will most likely be in USD, since all previous Monolith campaigs were in this currency. Let's assume 40USD for shipping, and that's about 32EUR (current exchange rate), so basically 30-40EUR is more than enough for shipping.
  14. You can squeeze Base Pledge, Hera, Poseidon and all smaller expansions except Manticore in Hera and Poseidon box, it is quite barbaric for miniatures but they fit. However I agree that it would be nice if the game was more squeezed. Assuming that MB:R will be KS Exclusive, it would be nice, if it was planned around storage. I wouldn't mind not getting boxes for separate expansions if it would mean that whole game neatly fits in 2-3 boxes.
  15. I agree. I wonder if we will get generic civilians/hostages
