A Sudden Influx of Bears + More! A Message From The Crypt #4

Hot off the presses! Caleb here with some brand new NecroMansters news! Lemme break it down for ya in a few bite sized chunks. Lots of fun pictures to gawk at!

Almost to 15k!

In anticipation of that quickly-approaching 15k stretch goal, I’ve cooked up something fresh for all of you! Here’s a teaser of what’s to come:

Meet the Necropolitan, a dashing specimen of undead weirdness

As soon as we reach this stretch goal, this debonaire fella will find his way into every backer’s deck! Tell your friends! Warn your enemies! The Necropolitan is nearly here!

Table Top Simulator Revamped + N.O.I.R. Exclusives

In anticipation of the upcoming NecroManster Online Internet Rumble event, we’ve made some tweaks to the Table Top Simulator mod!

Now featuring the brand new neoprene mat designs! A lil more room for your draw piles in Duel or Custom Mode.
‘mansters, just like grandma used to make.
The cards do have some magnetism to line them up just like you would in real life, but if you prefer a messy stack that’s on you.
plus, a little teaser of what NecroMansters Sleeves might look like! Wink wink nudge nudge. Part of importing Custom decks from necromansters dot com right into TTS!

In addition to the other rewards listed on the NecroMansters site, take a sneaky peek at Chiaroscuro, the promotional exclusive for the top 16 players who participate in N.O.I.R. Events!

nightmare eyes, anyone?

Spare Parts & Team Mythic Teasers!

If you know me, you know I’m bad with keeping secrets, especially if those secrets are some absolutely sick looking new cards. Feast ya eyes, creeps!

a fearsome face from Mythic, the homemade “dragon” named ‘Gax Machina.
Eight Bears, a Spare Parts newcomer. Yes, literally eight bears stitched together. Things could get messy fast.
Djent, one of the strongest cards in Mythic, not to mention the most 80s B-Movie Horror Flick coded. Oozing with charm, literally and figuratively.

Less than half the Make-A-Manster slots remaining in Spare Parts, too! Vibrating with excitement in anticipation of starting those in the next months.

Some Lil Adverts + Incentive!

Just because I can: Here are some lil funny advertisement images I whipped up for myself! Feel free to spread these around like the plague–and, as a little incentive for spreading the glorious news of all things ‘Mansters, I’m gonna include a lil link to a NecroMansters Moby Crypt Wallpaper at the veeery bottom of all this for those of you who scroll that far (and, maybe, just maybe, recruit your buddies to the cause). Go killem dead out there, creeps!

As promised–Here’s your wallpaper! Now GO! Spread the card game goodness!!

And, as always,
Creep it real.

NEW Necromansters Stretch Goals

Hello again, all! Caleb Nelson here, designer and illustrator of NecroMansters.

We’re crushing it, and I do mean “we” because none of this would be possible without the help of each and every one of you backers! Expectations? Exceeded. The mood? Ecstatic. Our Stretch Goals? 2/3 met!

But now our page looks a little silly, to be honest. No new stretch goals until 50k? Feels wrong. Feels… incomplete. So let’s change that!

At $15,000…

As a thank you to our backers for helping us surpass our wildest dreams, we’ll include a new Manster card in the core set, with a kooky green Kickstarter-flavored border! Hot dog! 

maybe even… like this?? :0

This new Manster will not be locked to any team, so you could use it with Custom Cadaver OR Funeral Party Mode.

…any excuse to make a new card and I’ll take it, really. I love making art for this game!

At $20,000…

Speaking of art. Digital wallpapers! I’ll make a handful of artworks meant for putting onto your phones ‘n’ laptops and what have you. People will see the art over your shoulder and say things like “Woah, sick background! Where’s that from?” And you’ll say things like “Stop looking over my shoulder,” and “how did you get into my house,” and “It’s from NecroMansters,” etc, etc.

this horrifying new sketch of the Manster Card Gnatsuki is just one of many possibilities. I drew this as a joke earlier but now I’m realizing it might not get to be a joke anymore. Help.

I’ll also try to get together some art of some fan-favorite cards, as well… for both these wallpapers and maybe some alt-art rare cards that might show up somewhere down the line. Anything’s possible! Let me know what critters you like the most in the comments and I’ll take note.

At $25,000…

So far, there are 2 NecroMansters comics: One with Team Crafty, and one with both Team Creepy AND Team Spooky. There’s another in the works right now. Expect that one to feature Team Gloomy! …But that’s it. That’s all I really intended to make, and those 3 comics will cover most of the mechanics I wanted to feature (the three types, active and inactive slabs, and scavenging). All that being said, at 25k, I’ll be able to start work on another issue of the comic, as another little thank-you for all the support we’ve gotten! If it’s finished in time, we might even be able to squeeze it into the comics and stickers reward, but it’ll be available digitally to all the backers who helped make it possible in the first place.

And, just maybe, this new comic will prominently feature one of the new terrifying Mansters from Team Mythic! Only time will tell.

And Beyond…

That’s all we’ve got for now, but who knows? Once we reach 30k and beyond, there might be some new stretch goals that unlock!

But until then, creep it real, gang.

-Caleb

Necromansters Kickstarter. IT IS ALIVE!!!

We are live with Necromansters! I want to once again thank Caleb Nelson for being a legend to work with. This has been the project in my life that has brought me constant joy. At no point during this entire work did Necromansters or its developer bring me stress, issues, or un-rest. It is so rare for a project to go this smooth while the game itself being this good. Please check the Kickstarter over. If you like what you see considering backing it. Like I always say, not every game is for everyone but I have full unlimited faith in Necromansters. This game is going places. Support us if you want the game. Thank you all!

System Gate Ban List Update

Barbarian King has been added to the ban list.

This card was already on the watch list, and due to it’s tournament performance this weekend has been added. It was one of the cards that falls into the class of “specific answer needed” which is a design philosophy we are working to move away from.

Thank you for your kind understanding.
