THE RAVENOUS BECOMES EPIC!
This awesome looking new sculpt for Ravenous, bigger and nastier than the original version. Diemension realized they wanted to play with it in Deep Madness, which would be much harder to do if it was a resin collector's item. So, they retconned their plan, and decided to make this big nasty baddy an Epic Monster instead. That's right: Ravenous is now all grown up and its own proper Epic Monster!
Here's the 3D modeling and our painted sample in all its gooey glory:
Monster acts according to its own action pool during its turn. In Deep Madness monsters are highly characteristic, not just in stats, but also in abilities and behaviors. Different combinations of monsters provide unique challenges. And due to the intertwined activation mechanism, even different turn orders of the monsters make each game session different. However, no matter how the monsters setup is, Deep Madness will be a very challenging game, even death could be a strategy.
In the game, investigators battle the horrific monsters, survive the harsh crises, and above all, save their own minds from the devouring of madness. They are given many chances to consume their own sanity, to activate their abilities, to use the effects of items, to reroll the dice, and etc. However they are vulnerable when the sanity is low. After an investigator with insanity tokens manages to kill a monster, the monster will corrupt his/her mind, by permanently flipping the insanity tokens into madness tokens. As the madness token cumulates, horror haunts the investigator by resolving Madness Cards, and each of them has unique negative effect and terrifying flavor text.
