Like many of you, I’ve lost track of time in this corona virus world. All I know is that once upon a time, there used to be this thing called conventions and at those conventions we were playtesting new Maximum Apocalypse characters. This campaign has been a long time coming and we’re happy to announce that the wait is almost over. Maximum Apocalypse: Wasted Wilds will be heading to Kickstarter on May 18th! Our project is approved and you can get notified when it launches by visiting this page here.
- The Driver is an impulsive ex-stuntwoman who relies on her adrenaline to get her through tough situations. She comes with her own custom car that can mow down enemies. She can even move the Van tile for easier escapes.
- The Chef is a support class who uses his knowledge of the kitchen to aid his fellow survivors. He focuses on staving off hunger and is deadly with his many knives.
- The Contractor is a strong warrior with a big appetite. His innate ability allows him to build barricades which prevent future monster spawns.
- The Thief is a stealthy rogue who evades danger and strikes from the shadows. She grows in strength as she makes her way through her 50 card survivor deck, setting up crucial assassinations.
There are a lot of other new mechanics to share, but many of them revolve around our new Clock Board:
Time is always ticking along in Wasted Wilds. Every turn advances the clock, but rolling a ‘7’ increases the passage of time and might trigger Exposure or another effect! As you can see the Clock board organizes all new Day/Night cards and also adds a spot for an Exposure deck. Exposure hits characters with negative status effects when they are stuck outside. You may start with frostnip, but if you’re caught in the cold again that can progress into Frostbite or Hypothermia.
Another change is Mission cards have been exchanged for a Mission Log Book which features two distinct campaigns to play through: The Frozen Wilds and Scorched Wasteland. That’s it for now, be sure to subscribe to our newsletter for more information and get notified on Kickstarter when it launches.
