  1. GNL Mats by GameNightLife

    In hindsight I think you went the right way about it. If they do get their act together you can order some more at that point. Despite the train wreck of a campaign, I'm considering ordering some after they've delivered on the Kickstarter, just to see what they are like compared to my Tact-Tiles..

    Ironically, if you had ordered the blue and green, you wouldn't currently have your parchment tiles to know if they were any good.
  3. GNL Mats by GameNightLife

    Wow, how many tiles are you getting for that much?

    Have you used Tact-Tiles before? I'm interested in seeing how the GNL tiles compare to Tact-Tiles, which is what I currently use.
  5. Robotech RPG Tactics - Palladium

    Oh, it's great for Harmony Gold, but obviously the other party had to agree to it as well, which was a dumb move on their behalf as it's easy to see the potential ramifications from agreeing to something like that. It's like going paintballing with someone and telling them that you will pay for any paint refills they need, then being surprised that the are holding down their trigger the entire time they are on the field!
  6. Robotech RPG Tactics - Palladium

    Yeah, that's a terrible contract clause to agree to.

    Wow, that's just rubbing it into the face of your Kickstarter backers then. Charging them more than sale prices for items that they will have to dispose of in 3 weeks time and then whacking them with a shipping cost on top of that (when shipping was originally included).

    I'm a bit of a biblophile, so I never write in any of my books. This goes for all books. My textbooks at university were immaculate, while my friends were using highlighters and adding notes all over the place. That said, over a decade ago I bought the Shackled City Adventure Path hardcover and ran the campaign from start to finish, 1st level to about 19th level, over the course of about 3 years. By the end of the campaign my hardcover was absolutely trashed from continual use, with the front and back covers just hanging on. I tried to keep it in as good a condition as possible, but it was in my backpack most days going to and from work and got read through an absolute heap. I'm still a biblophile with all my books, but that trashed hardcover has pride of place on my bookshelf as a nice reminder of the workout it got while running the most enjoyable campaign I've ever run or played in.

    Are they charging full retail price for exchanges?
  10. Rappan Athik 5th ed!

    It's going to be a full-colour hardback over 500 pages long. So I'm not surprised the price is so high. At this point I think I'll be getting the PDF as shipping from the US to Australia adds quite a lot to my price.
  11. Batman™: Gotham City Chronicles by Monolith, Kickstarter

    Yep, I think this will go for stupidly high prices on eBay after the Kickstarter is done.
  12. Robotech RPG Tactics - Palladium

    I don't have a horse in this race, but it may be relevant to note that this Kickstarter is so old that it actually falls under the previous Kickstarter ToS. I'm not sure how much of a difference that makes, but I've heard some people claim that, under that old ToS, Palladium must provide a refund if they do not deliver what they promised. As I said though, I haven't read the old ToS (and have no plans to), so it could just be that those people are flat out wrong.

    Yeah, it may be that there is a RPG licence and a miniatures licence, and one or both licences are ending.
  14. Robotech RPG Tactics - Palladium

    You want to give Palladium more money after this? Obviously it's your choice, but it seems like that's just throwing good money after bad. My guess is the licence was always a 5 year licence. The Kickstarter launched in April 2013 and funded in May 2013, so that lines up with a 5 year licence starting on 1 April 2013 and ending on 31 March 2018. So Palladium have probably known for a long time now that their licence was ending.
  15. Robotech RPG Tactics - Palladium

    I think there will be lawsuits coming Palladium's way over this. I feel sad for those people that got dudded out of their money. Personally, having seen what Palladium had done in the past, I always felt like this was a train wreck waiting to happen.
