<whoop! whoop! whoop!>
You know that sound. It's the Giant Robot Alert and that's because we've got some new releases from Privateer Press, arguably the place we get most of our Giant Robot Alerts from. This time around, we have some new Monsterpocalypse and Riot Quest kits available. Notably for Monsterpocalypse, there's the Megaton Mashup set, which lets you play the game cooperatively.
From the article:
Campaigns are a great way to add depth to almost any gaming experience, and slowly building up the power of your army as a campaign progresses has been a mainstay of miniatures gaming for decades. When we sat down to determine how a campaign in Monsterpocalypse could work, there were some big questions to answer.
The first question was, What gets better over the course of the campaign? We had a lot of options, but balance made most of them problematic. Since the models in Monsterpocalypse start out dangerous, allowing them to increase stats or learn new abilities would make them overpowered quickly. Taking a cue from Real Time Strategy games, we decided to limit improvements to your base.
When you start a Smashville campaign, you first pick an Agenda and add up to four monsters from it to your roster. You also start with a limited roster of units from your Faction. After you’ve selected which monster and units you’ll start with, you pick a map to call home. That map begins full of Apartment buildings, and you can spend the megabucks you earn during games to upgrade the buildings. Having a building in your city adds its bonus to your rules sheet, and each building offers a unique bonus.
