The other day Monolith (Mythic battles pantheon, Conan, Batman GCC) the Beyond monolith concept.
For clarity, I’m going to post the subject from Reddit as posted by user /r/Lavoisier21, as he cleaned up the post quite nicely:
So Monolith made this announcement today:
Basically, they want to make the Batman GCC/Conan system universal gaming systems (akin to consoles) to which you can incorporate minis (that you already own from other games or that they will sell in the future) along with new maps and scenarios they’ll be producing themselves. So they’re selling the “engine” of this system, consisting of various dice, 2 Overlord tablets, 4 Hero tablets, cards and Tokens. separately. Then you can pick and choose what universe of minis and scenarios you want to use it with.
To push this forward, they’re launching two new product lines:
1) Second life kits
With this you will get character tiles and scenarios and so forth for miniatures you already own from other games. This will definitely include their own titles that use other systems, like Mythic Battle Pantheons, but Monolith is also partnering with other companies. For example, Monolith could make a deal with CMON and produce a second life kit that will let you use your Song of Ice and Fire miniatures with new scenarios and tiles on the Batman GCC/Conan system.
2) Universe boxes
This would be Monolith selling you new minis and maps and so forth directly for use in the Batman GCC/Conan system. They could, for example, make a lovecraft themed universe box with Lovecraftian minis, tiles and scenarios and then sell it at a reduced price for use with the system that you have already bought separately. I mean reduced price, because you’re not having to purchase all the tablets and so forth again.
I thought this could lead to an interesting discussion, as it’s clearly going to be a divisive concept/idea.
