New Cmon Lovecraftian game, 'Death May Die'
« on: May 13, 2018, 04:26:57 PM »

 Saw an announcement for a new Lovecraftian miniatures board game from Cmon, to be called 'Death May Die'. It seems like it'll follow the tried & tested 'investigators seek to prevent manifestation of Great Old One' route, but according to one of the games designers (Eric Lang) it'll be extremely challenging. There's a video on BoW's Cmon Expo segment shedding some light on it - oh wait, there's these as well....

Interesting game concepts in the discussion there, like a good GM would run a CoC rpg session. 

Great looking miniatures.

 Sorry Slorm, no idea about release dates as yet, Lang just said soon-ish - however, he also said it'd be a Kickstarter (something I personally could've done without, but we'll see whats on offer).

Scale?

Going by the size of figure relative to base and on other CMoN projects: about 1/48th

I suppose that they will use the 32mm miniature, in the same way that they did in their other games

I was hoping for a 1920s zombicide lovercraft game

 Indeed, I'm glad to see the game is a co-op with an 'all against the game mechanic' rather than needing a player to take the role of the 'evil' side.

Indeed. Like the solo-game option... :)

Starts July 10th, 3pm EST!
https://www.facebook.com/coolminiornot/

"In C: DMD, players take on the role of Investigators who have just come to a conclusion on their latest case, and the reality is terrifying. At the start of the game, Cultists have already started an unstoppable ritual that will summon an Elder One, a god from a place beyond time and space. They have been in a death-like slumber for eons, but now they’re stirring, and before the night is over, they will arrive. The only hope is for the Investigators to disrupt the ritual enough so that when the ancient deity arrives, for a brief moment, it’s mortal. It’s not much of a plan, but it’s the best they’ve got."

I like the scale of those figures.  Not as weedy as the Zombicide stuff so they should mix well with the RAFM line (the 7th ed ones).  I'll be watching these as the detail looks decent.
