For my 33rd Birthday this year I booked a couple of days off work to spend with my newly wed wife, Violet and play plenty of Kingdom Death!
We started our third attempt at People of the Stars campaign and continued over the course of the long weekend. Our settlement was named Neverhollow Cavern.
There may be spoilers below…
Things started off well; a healthy population, slaying a couple of Lions and Gorms with minor casualties. We even managed to remove Gorm Climate by year 4.
It was the Butcher who despite having a rare opportunity to escape early on (sacrificing one survivor to lead him into the darkness), was followed by some very unlucky moments. He slaughtered our four best men and destroyed an unfortunate amount of resources.
We bravely pushed forth, fighting two new expansions for us; the Flower Knight and Spidicules. Both hunts were good fun and very challenging. We managed to win both, but not without several sacrifices.
On the last session of the weekend we decided to gamble the lives of our remaining survivors against a level 2 White Lion. During the hunt we caught the lion off-guard, distracted by something else.
To our amazement, we had drawn Quad Strike as a tactics card and got the chance to position ourselves into the perfect formation. Our survivors each Surged to cause a barrage of damage before the lion’s retaliation. We had slain the beast within minutes and returned to the settlement to celebrate furthermore, with the birth of two sets of twins. A perfect end to the perfect weekend.
