What about German and French Editions?

What about German and French Editions?

We have heard all your comments and we will be making complete VF and complete DE versions of EVERY PRODUCT offered on this campaign INCLUDING THE REPRINTS OF EVERYTHING from the first Planet Apocalypse Kickstarter (and including the boxes and maps).

However, there is a catch. We know from the previous Kickstarter, as well as our surveys, that the demand is limited (compared to the original version). Because of this, our print runs are smaller and therefore cost twice as much as an English version (yes, really). Additionally, we have extra costs for translation and design/layout work. So, we have to charge 10% surcharge for any product that is the German or French version to make it possible. This extra 10% charge will NOT be assessed during the Kickstarter, but via the pledge manager after the campaign is over (when you would pay for shipping). The pledge manager will default to English products. If you select VF or DE (from a language dropdown), it will automatically add 10% to the price of those products.

This is the FINAL WEEK of our last Kickstarter in 2020! You can still back Planet Apocalypse 2, the board game with NEW EXPANSIONS, and/or Planet Apocalypse the 5e sourcebook! Don’t miss out!

The Return to Planet Apocalypse:
Hell Doesn’t Give Up!

Our FINAL Kickstarter of 2020 is now live! You can now back Planet Apocalypse 2, the board game with NEW EXPANSIONS, and/or Planet Apocalypse the 5e sourcebook!

PLUS, If you back our project in the first 48 hours, the Petersen Games logo will come alive in your hands as a FREE Kickstarter exclusive! A huge, highly detailed miniature of Sandy’s favorite insect: a Mantispid — menacing Lincoln! It includes rules to play this miniature in Planet Apocalypse, of course!

DESIGN CORNER: New Lord

DESIGN CORNER: New Lord

The Return to Planet Apocalypse Kickstarter will have some great new expansions for our much-praised board game while the RPG supplement will show you how to turn any fantasy world into a post-apocalyptic landscape where the heroes fight alongside surviving remnants to merely stymie the fiendish hordes.
Each week we are releasing a Design Corner from Sandy that gives you a sneak peek of art from these new projects.

 

 

Herne the Hunter

Herne is the Wild Hunter of Celtic and German myth. In the stories he flies through the sky or over the ground with his pack of demon hounds. His menace is prodigious — if the Hellhound is not in play, place it in Herne’s area!

He has Pack tokens and starts with tokens equal to the heroes. If his Pack drops below 3, he adds more in his Menace, up to a maximum of 6. If he has run out of Pack tokens, he places Fiends instead, so no matter what he has a sizable contingent accompanying him.

His Toughness is equal to 3 +1 per Pack.

So in a 5 player game, he’d start with a Toughness 8 which is pretty much unthinkably horrible. In addition, each Pack adds 1d12 to his attack (base 6d8). A Lord with Toughness 8 and 6d8+5d12 attack is lethal. Fortunately you can kill the Pack independently of Herne. Each Pack only has Toughness 1+1 and gives the killer 1 Courage.

While Herne also inflicts 1 damage on the hero with the highest Health when he attacks, his main threat is the Pack, so early on during the fight you are forced to kill his hounds, and only later do you target him directly. Of course you may also need to deal with a Hellhound and some Fiends.
