Solomon Kane is a fanatic English Puritan, who feels invested with a divine mission in a dark and Gothic sixteenth century. Tormented and ambiguous, he travels the world to eliminate Evil when he meets him... And he meets him often! Evil can take the form of brigands and criminals as well as ghosts, vampires and other lovecraftian monsters. But where the protagonists of Lovecraft are victims, Solomon Kane arises as a judge and pitiless executioner.
The game designer is Jake Thornton, a famous English author having signed games at Games Workshop and Mantic before joining Mythic Games.

The artist is Guillem H. Pongiluppi, an incredible artist who previously worked on Mythic Battles.
To ensure fidelity and respect for Howard's vision, we got the licence through Cabinet Entertainment and hired a luxury consultant: Patrice Louinet, a world-renowned expert of this author.
Solomon Kane is a cooperative and narrative game, for 2 to 4 players. It allows to relive the stories of Solomon Kane as described in the short novels. The only notable difference is that players will be able to influence the story. Each player embodies one of the four cardinal virtues (Courage, Temperance, Prudence and Justice), invisible forces capable of inspiring Solomon Kane in difficult times. If Solomon Kane succeeds the adventure, all the players have won. If he fails, the players lost and the Evil scored a victory.

The game will be launched this year on Kickstarter.

Come see our booth in Cannes, we have many surprises to unveil!

You will be able to follow the progress of the Solomon Kane project on this page and on various specialized sites!

Man, this'll be a tough one to pass up...but I also think it's one of the riskier things they've tried to sell. I can see this not blowing up as big as some of their others.

Solomon Kane is not a hugely or widely known IP compared to the other stuff they've tackled. Will be very intrigued to see where this goes.

I am interested to see how the game actually plays. From the description provided it sounds like 2 - 4 players have an influence over a single character model with each player representing a virtual to influence Kane - Courage, Temperance, Prudence and Justice. Think that will be a hard sell for some gamers.

Surprised they are not including solo play as game is purely co-op and they made an effort to include at least some solo gameplay options within Joan of Arc.

I was wavering on Batman anyway (although the recent Year Zero model had peaked my interest again) and I think this may take it's place in my collection.

Hot on the heels of me watching that sad, sad, waste of a movie.

Hopefully this does the job of cleansing the palette. Still seems strange with multiple people controlling the same character. Could be interesting.

It is also most worrisome that I thought the same thing as Bob the Inquisitor.

Always Herman's Head, never Inside Out....

I love Soloman Kane, would love to back the kickstarter but I STILL haven't received by Mythic Battles Pantheon KS I paid for. neither Mythic and their shipping agent in the US respond to my emails.

Mythic Battles was a joint production of Mythic (design / rules) and Monolith (Production and shipping). Monolith recently took over full ownership of the game and Mythic are no longer involved at all in Mythic Battles.

Monolith are the ones who have always been in charge of production and shipping and as they are no longer involved in the game Mythic won’t be able to answer any shipping issues, only Monolith can.

Given that Soloman Kane is still in an early design stage I can’t see if hitting Kickstarter before late summer so hopefully you will have your Mythic Battle delivery issues resolved by then.

The stories are worth reading. He fights ghosts and bandits and that kind of thing. The Solomon Kane stories have a very Warhammer Fantasy feel, as they inspired a lot of the flavor for the witch hunters in WHFB.

"And while I'm forgiving of one mishap, this string of incidences suggests the problem is with the project managers, not whom they hire, what materials they are using, what language their backers are using, etc. I do notice that entrepreneurs have more self-confidence than other people, and need it to persevere bad luck and obstacles. But this self-confidence can turn into "do nothing wrong" blindness, which prevents these people from admitting mistakes and improving themselves." -- September 3, 2014

I am all over this, as I love Solomon Kane. Each player acting as as different virtue sounds really interesting, but also like it could get boring. It is certainly not a concept I've seen executed elsewhere, so I'm excited to see how it works out.

Go ask your Dad.

Original not-so-serious speculation was that this game might be like Herman's Head, but, from the look of the prototype, it looks like the kid's games, where the IP had only one main character, but each player played a different color -- the blue guy, the green guy, etc. The Six Million Dollar Man game (go ask your Dad) had four pawns, and you can see that they're all the main character, just different colors. He may need to ask *his* Dad who Uncle Wiggly was, but, again, in the UW game, each player played Uncle, but a difference color. SK looks like a modern version of this, where each color has unique abilities. In the Yogi Bear game (maybe uncle remembers), each player was Yogi Bear *and* Boo Boo -- the blue plastic pawn and blue wooden disk representing blue Yogi and Boo Boo, the red plastic pawn and red wooden disk representing red Yogi and Boo Boo...

Anyway, SK is designed by Jake Thorton, who has a good amount of boardgame and wargame experience. He himself has a background in anthropology (?). : https://boardgamegeek.com/boardgamedesigner/944/jake-thornton

Now I'm going to have to go try Uncle Wiggly out- I've got a copy in my game closet in my classroom that was "donated" to me (which is read as 'dumped unceremoniously onto my floor when a coworker retired along with a pile of other games and classroom supplies').

It'll at least give me an idea of what this could potentially play like.

Well, you'd have to give each UW color different powers. And have dice-based skill checks on the pink cards -- with custom dice.

Anyway, BoW article on the prototype, though not much more info than the pic. : http://www.beastsofwar.com/solomon-kane/mythic-games-give-prototype/

Yeah, that sounds like too much work, and looking at Mythic's board I'd much rather play that than with some crusty old board game.

I'm intrigued by what all the various boards are.

(I made my students murder each other in a giant game of Talisman instead, which they all seemed to enjoy)
