Now for the Kingdom Death news. On Valentine's Day they finally add a ton of new stuff and restocks to their web store. The new stuff were the Black Knight, Black Knight Squire (both a male and a female version), Female Great Game Hunter Rouge Class and Pinup Apotheosis. And the restocks were Kingdom Death Lantern D10's, hard plastic Stone Face Base inserts, Distracted and Adult Sunstalker.

I ended up ordering the Female Great Game Hunter Rogue Class, however I was very tempted on getting the Female Black Knight Squire as well.
Also any games of Kingdom Death Monster that happens during the 14th of February to the 21st of February, you population count will go up by one (max of one per campaign).
