I'd buy that cover as a poster in an instant.

Also, I can't begin to say how much I love the Cabin in the Woods scenario. it's just great. It calls on some strong themes of Malifaux, like the obvious horror elements, but also the Western theme (how many Westerns have the small ragtag group in a building shootout) while also paying homage to classic horror films.

The scenario itself looks to play out rather simply, but still evokes the feeling of those slasher films with a few special rules and tweaks. I can imagine several games now, like the ragtag remnants of a Latigo patrol in the badlands, holed up in a shack, surrounded by Nephilim, trying to get people out to call for reinforcments. You could include Tuco to make it extra thematic - getting revenge on his old brothers and sisters. Or even some Freikorps and/or Ronin in a run down building in a forest, surrounded by literal Nightmares coming to devour them.

I can't wait to give this scenario a run. Or three. Or four. It also makes a great scenario to sit beside the Night of the Carver on Halloween.

I'm going to give those Stitched Together another look.

Now I have to go through all of the old books and check to see if that Kaeris puppet and the two puppets on page 14 (guild pathfinder and mechanical trap?) are new artwork... :tome

Kaeris is old. Never seen the trapper puppet before, it's new. Possibly a new sculpt of pathfinders?

Reading the Black Betty story makes me wonder if you're plotting an Alt Carlos already

Not a bad idea if you want an all-female Star Theater troupe.

Personally, I saw the mention of wave 5 in the introduction and I'm afraid it spoiled the rest of the Chronicles for me. Who can read it when a mention of wave 5 is ricocheting around your brain? :P
