    Dragon-Slayer: RPG and Cosplay Wands

    Thanks. We're crossing our fingers that it gets some traction. Hope you help spread the word.
  2. I've just started my newest Kickstarter project and thought I'd let everyone know here. This project focuses on hand-turned wands made from wood and/or acrylics. Diesel Laforce is also designing a wand shaft especially for the project. Come take a look here: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1658949603/dragon-slayer-rpg-and-cosplay-wands
  3. We are now 93% funded! There are still a few early bird specials left, so be sure to get in and get yours by Christmas!
  4. Hrothgar's Hoard has just launched its sixth Kickstarter Project: The Paladin's Keep. The Paladin's Keep is a dice tray and tower system made from solid hardwoods. It uses Hrothgar's Hoard's tried and tested construction method which guarantees stability, travel-ability, and reliability. Using solid wood, the tray and tower are precision cnc cut to give you a heavy-duty piece of art. The tower's arms do not use magnets or jointery; they are part of that original piece of wood so nothing can break or shift out of place. The project is over 85% funded in its first two days.

    Critical Hit Decks

    Hey all...sorry I've been absent. Took a break after the project ended and haven't been keeping up on the boards. I've already reached out to NomadZeke, but if anyone else missed the window and is interested in the decks, email me at hrothgarshoard@gmail.com. I can send you a paypal invoice and then add you to the list. And, yes, postage is extra on this project...even for US. It was suggested to me to do this by other project creators in order to separate the unit cost from the shipping. I'm not sure if it really makes a difference or not, but other creators seemed to think it does.

    Critical Hit Decks

    I felt similarly about the Paizo cards. Especially the magic effects made no sense to me as a player or DM. This was one of the reasons why I developed the Decks. I don't try to be cute and make up effects that look good on paper, but don't have much to do with specific encounters. I went back to the AD&D ruleset, old Dragon Magazine articles, and even my old notes from the early 80s. I sold some of the prototypes at GaryCon this year, got feedback from both vendors and attendees, and made changes to them before launching this KS. Come take a look and help me spread the word.

    Critical Hit Decks

    Any way the decks are used is fine by me... Good points on using for boss monsters rather than all monsters. Since any critical deck is, by definition, a house rule, then I would say to use them in a way in which the DM/Players agree. The cards are just there for an option. @OneBoot: I greatly appreciate that you've backed several of my projects in the past. I have a couple others in the works so keep an eye out for a future one that may suit you better. Thanks to all and please help spread the word.

    Critical Hit Decks

    In my game we use the decks for both player and monster natural 20s. Would it hurt players more than help? No...it treats players and monsters equally. Does it add an element of danger to the players? Absolutely. It also adds options for role-playing when a PC gets hit with a disfiguring scar or losing a hand. As the decks stand right now, each card has about a 2% chance of being drawn, so the odds of an Instant Death or Disfiguring Scar is relatively low. I'd actually like to get that percentage down to 1% by having 100 cards in the deck, but the project needs to do very well for that to happen. As always, you need to take into consideration the way your particular game is run. If some of the cards are too nasty or would place an undue burden on your players, feel free to eliminate those cards from the deck. There is nothing that says you can't take the big nasties out and use the decks with the standard "max" "double" and "triple" damage cards.

    Critical Hit Decks

    Hey, thanks for the post on this, NomadZeke. I just got it up today and have spent the past couple hours hitting the boards trying to spread the word. You got to it here before I had a chance to log on. FYI: I made a short run of these cards to take to GaryCon this spring and sold out almost immediately. They were designed to have a first edition feel which was great for that convention. The cards also spell out the effects and conditions for 5e so the player (or DM) don't have to go searching through the books to figure out what the ongoing effects might be on any particular card. Here are a couple pictures for those who might be interested.

    Hrothgar IV: Skald's Song

    Hrothgar's Hoard has just launched its 4th Kickstarter Campaign: Skald's Song. Skald's Song introduces two new storage cases made from solid hardwoods for your games. They are both hexagonal in shape, are easily transportable, and can be used for multiple applications. Take a look here: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1658949603/hrothgar-iv-skalds-song I'd really like to break that 500 backer barrier so take a minute and share the link.
  14. Now entering my final week on this project. If you haven't taken a look, do so now. This is a great way to store all those minis you just received from Reaper.
