Well, it would seem as though the apocalypse has come early. Rock Manor Games has gone and launched their Kickstarter campaign for Maximum Apocalypse: Gothic Horrors. This new, deluxe expansion brings in two new scenarios, as well as several new classes, including the Priest and Ronin. The campaign reached its goal almost immediately, so it’s on to stretch goals now.
From the campaign:
Gothic Horrors is our first deluxe expansion and adds two new apocalyptic scenarios, the Cthulhu Mythos and Classic Monsters. Face off against life draining vampires, ghouls and werewolves in a classic monster set or try and stop a bunch of cultists from summoning Cthulhu or other unspeakable Lovecraftian horrors. Each apocalypse brings with it new gameplay mechanics such as the Insanity deck or the new night/day cycle. This expansion also adds two new survivor classes, the Priest and Ronin. The Priest is a persistent believer in humanity who offers protection from unspeakable evils. The Ronin is a new close range combatant with dual purpose cards that change based on her combat stance.
As I mentioned, they’re already over their funding goal (by more than 4x, actually), so it’s stretch goals for the next 29 days.
