You’ll have to forgive me for straying “Off Topic”, but I discovered a game yesterday that may be of interest to Malifaux players.
Carnevale is a new skirmish game from new company Vesper-on Games, set in an alternate Venice in 1795 (ie. around 100 years before Malifaux), where a rent in the sky pours magic over the city. With most of the population dead, the survivors fall mainly into 4 factions:
The Patricians are the Venetian nobility but, corrupt as they are, venture onto the streets to commit acts of brutality on the peasants, with the city guard in tow.
The Ospedale is a cabal of doctors and alchemists who experiment on the Venetian citizens and wildlife that they can capture alive, including the inspired “remote control rhino”
The Rashaar are an ocean dwelling Cthullu-type demonic race that have emerged from the deep to enslave humanity.
The Guild is, unlike the Malifaux Guild, a group of thieves and assassins, who actually appear to be the good guys, protecting the peasants from the ravages of the other factions.
There are some very nice models in the initial range, and the setting is pretty unique, however I’m not sure whether it might be too similar in feel to Malifaux for me to pick it up as a side game.
For anyone interested, the Rulebook and model stats are available for free on Vesper-on Games homepage http://www.vesper-on.com.
While I’m Off-Topic, it’s worth mentioning that this week I played an intro game of Eden against Adam, my Bamaka Clan vs his Jokers. It was a fun little game, and we both really like the post-apocalyptic setting so this is likely to get the occasional play now and then, but there’s nobody else locally playing it, so we will see.
