    Squareware: A special dice kit for the DM

    Squareware has now launched on Kickstarter. I'm seeking funding to prototype and mass manufacture a very special dice kit I have developed that combines the best features of a Box, Bag, Mats and Dice to give you millions of instant creative solutions during or while building your RPG - and - help the DM eliminate creative, mental and physical fatigue; minimize the need for manuals; free up space behind the DM screen; allow you to craft entire quest concepts in seconds; and make it easy on your shoulders, bag or pocket to carry. #dice #rpg #dnd #tabletop #gaming https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/gametilewarehouse/squareware-rpg-dice-tools-for-sparking-the-creativ

    Squareware: A special dice kit for the DM

    Hey there - I didn't understand your first paragraph - but if you check it out now you'll see it covers a huge range of new things, and I am attempting to build an automated Artificial PC Intelligence into it - it includes a lot of new things now.
  4. Hello :) I'm back on Kickstarter and this time I'm seeking funding to extend work on an electronic version of a very special dice kit I have developed within VTT Software and having secured a licensed deal with Smiteworks Fantasy Grounds LLC whom rarely grant permission for Kickstarters I'm excited about this wonderful opportunity to try and push their software and my imagination to the limits. The project is based on a dicekit I built that combines the best features of a Box, Bag, Mats and Dice to give you millions of instant creative solutions during or while building your RPG - and - helps the DM eliminate creative, mental and physical fatigue; minimizing the need for manuals; freeing up space behind the DM screen; allowing you to craft entire quest concepts in seconds; and making it easy on your shoulders, bag or pocket to carry. Essentially designed to help me improve my story-telling ability both actively and passively and to make creative connections to put together random quests and source information at virtual light-speed. Squareware offers solutions to a range of issues DM's face every time they prep for game and run it. You can check out the SQUAREWARE Relaunch, video and physical/electronic kit options here. Kind Regards, Kris

    Meanders 2: Brave New Worlds (400+ New Terrains)

    Hi guys - well it's almost all wrapped up now with 95% of rewards delivered and just some PDF conversions (underway) and some special conan grids to go. Over 100+ new designs were created this time around and I hope you enjoyed the campaign, liked the maps produced and will consider backing me again in future projects. As I go forward I hope to continually improve my skills, learn more about how to achieve different effects and hone my art and will be seeking funding for new computer upgrade to make even bigger, better maps and eventually break into the 3d side of things as well. Before I take Meanders to the public via Game Tile Warehouse, I wanted to have some backers spend time with the designs to get feedback on quality, design and utility. I'm now trialling a new format that will see a change to the standard size of a Meander (8175x5475 - which originally accounted for a design meant for physically printing onto gameboards - and extra bleed) to a more robust and precise 8100x5400 with the grid taken all the way to the edge. From this standard hi-res format to be in JEPG, there will be two more JEPG formats especially for VTT. The 2nd format will be sized at 2700x1800 and suit 100 pixels per grid, and the 3rd format will be sized at 1350x900 and suit 50 pixels per grid. The new standardization in size should neatly enable scaling the maps down for more convenient use, as well as be easier to handle with the reduced file size. Less uploading and storage requirements means I can make more of them, and also offer them as instant digital downloads from my website in the coming month. New Meanders in the Fantasy Range will be added semi-regularly to the range. The files are currently being reviewed in the hands of three GTW supporters so with luck, the files prove to be a better all-round format and I can take them to market very soon - with new maps added to the collection on a semi-regular basis. I'll also be adding a new code to the file names that will quickly identify which meanders series/type/theme it is, and make it easy to find what you are looking for even when there are a thousand. Check the new GTW Forum located under NEWS for more details on upcoming projects, kickstarter news, and other features. My Sci-fi Meanders 2 Kickstarter is also just around the corner and will offer 75+ new maps in a huge range of sci-fi themes - I hope to launch it around Mid-May or the 21st at the latest. Thank you everyone that backed me, I will let you know how the trials go, and keep you updated on the next wave. Kind Regards, Kris

You may also be pleased to hear that I have committed to over 400 new designs, making Meanders 2 almost seven times larger.

Wave 1 is now 60% completed.

The next wave will be Sci-fi...and if all stays on target, should be launching mid or near end of April.

  18. Hi Everyone. You might know (or not) that I am running a kickstarter for a neat little thing called the Digital Coin Forge that allows you quickly and easily print tens of thousands of different coins at home: but there is a new twist being added that you may be very interested in. The gist is that I am adding not just coins - but Shell casing tokens and bullet chits to the Forge available in a boxed Ammo Crate. One of the backers and I are discussing how to go about it: here is an excerpt of my reply detailing possible options. As I understand it, there are very few places to get bullet tokens, so this could be a good opportunity for you to weigh in as there are custom options available to get your own tokens/coins designed how you like. Alright, here is what the options are: "A2: Frankly I love the idea of an Ammo Crate and cylinders - and I think there is definitely room and time in the campaign to put something together. Here is how I see it: there are three design choices to go with or a combination: (1) Rectangles could be fashioned into Handgun clips or TNT blocks, Entire Boxes of Rounds or Top-down Shotgun Shell Casings and bullets such as .22 and .303 etc so whole cartridges are visible. Players could reload by placing the required new rounds onto templates during play. (2) Round coins in sizes 1.25"/1"/0.75" and 0.5" can be used to illustrate the bullet end-on from the back so you can see the Primer / strike-point with markings and size indicating the shell type. (3) Round coins in 1.25" and Rectangles in 2x1" can be fashioned into open Cyclinder, Open "X-Ray" Clips or Shot Shells or Double Barrels of a Shotgun can be EMPTY and onto which can be placed coins from concept (2). We might also consider having casings that can be reversed after use to show a spent cartridge by being blackened and having a cross through them for instance. On the reverse side can be Power Numbers/Assigned Values as you say - and since these fall under Denomination - I can add these freely so backers can ensure they suit the purpose required. I can make up some basic colour schemes for markers for these - and if something more is required backers can buy the Custom design for $5 per coin or use their exclusive pledge freebies. If backers choose the denomination rather than me making set values - this makes the DCF infinitely more valuable. Given that the DCF can make tokens, coins, poker chips, markers of thousands of varieties I see no reason not to expand into shells and bullets as an add-on. You spoke about the physical handling of such tokens -while I cannot custom design a means to encase the bullets in a specifically designed carrier I can suggest using a scrabble type shelf to make them visible and easy to change over and manipulate. If I think of any other means I can offer besides small flat boards/mats with graphics for placing the tokens on - I will let you know. As for creating a AMMO CRATE for the box - not a problem, I will make that possible."

    Meanders: Themed Boards with Connecting Paths for RPG

    Reaper Minis are the best goddamn minis. Hello :) I'm creating large specialized highly-detailed terrain boards called 'Meanders' that are designed to fit with one another left to right, top to bottom, to generate endless sprawling pathways for RPG adventures in a variety of terrains inc Forest, Jungle, Desert, Snow, City, Village, Castle, Treetops and more - including Sci-fi with Planet Surfaces, Deep Space, a Space Hulk and terrain suitable for Tyrannids, Warhammer 40k, Frostgrave and anything else backers can agree upon. The sets are particularly intended for areas after leaving the tavern/spaceport/craft and before reaching the location of major quests - allowing players to wander the wilderness but also serve up a number of classic RPG tropes for situating major quests.They measure 27x18" each and allow you to change large sections of terrain around in seconds (and are modifiable in size) without changing many fiddly smaller tiles and still allow you to get a variety of different layouts per set. They are available digitally as any four for $8 AUD in the Sampler Pack, or $25 AUD for thirty-two (32) core designs, and in a variety of other digital and printed options as well. They can be gridded or non-gridded with a variety of options available there. Also the printed boards are professionally printed, dry/wet erasable and the surface is coated with a tough scuff/soiling/liquid resistant layer. This will be my 4th Kickstarter on the back of three successful ones trying to bring innovative products to the RPG community. Thanks for your time, kind regards, Kris McDermott Click here to visit the Meanders Campaign on Kickstarter
  23. Hi all. I've just launched a little kickstarter that offers a compact dungeon map making tool kit. It's called Solo-man's Temple Squares and consists of 70 2x2" room and passage tiles you fit together to make dungeon arrangements and includes 140 coloured and numbered Map Marker Tokens to place down on the rooms to mark Events, Obstacles, Monsters, Encounters, Items, Weapons, Room Type and Content etc. The Temple Squares are double-sided and I hope to add a cool dungeon texture to all of the Squares to make them even better. You can make an entire map in minutes, make notes using your markers, and when you are done just take a photo and you have a dungeon map ready to go. You can easily change token locations and rooms/passages if need be, and add more. Perfect for both random and custom dungeon making. It's just a little project to help buy me an ergonomic mouse, keyboard and comfier chair on account of all the time I am spending at my desk making terrain and other things now for RPG. If you need a handy little tile set to construct dungeons easily and quickly that is portable, affordable and can be gotten digitally for $9 - please take a look at Soloman Temple Squares. Thank you, Kind Regards, Kris McDermott https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/gametilewarehouse/solo-man-temple-squares
