Face Painting represents the survivors taking their invention of paint, and applying it in various ways. Using their bodies as a canvas, you can generate some effects.


Possible gameplay spoilers below. If you want a purist experience then skip this info as it is not required and you will experience it through playing the game.

Face Paint supplies two endeavour events: Battle Paint and Founder's Eye, and no consequences. The battle paint allows generation of insanity, and the founder's eye can give bonuses to intimacy.

Neither of the endeavours are particularly powerful, as Insanity is generated reasonably well already, and as Protect the Young is a strong life principle, it's generally better to get 2x intimacy rolls rather than a chance at a +1 on that roll. if Survival of the Fittest is chosen, Founder's Eye goes up in value as you can prevent death. This means that in Kingdom Death 1.5 this innovation may see more play.
