  1. This one just occurred to me. Take the concept you employed with the brain-in-a-jar and give us a 1950s style sci-fi pulp astronaut or two with bubble helmets.
  2. Base Boss by Reaper

    There are RPG bases in the Kickstarter. You should be able to compare part numbers from the store with the numbers from the image on the KS page.
  3. Reaper Bones 3: Post-Kickstarter Discussion

    It got deleted. To be fair, though, it was really only one person here (and two or three on the KS comment section) that were taking the stance that questioning Reaper was heresy and nobody had the right to do so - although in much less polite terms. It is hard to do without starting a flame war, but I'll try. The problem is that concerns and questions have been going unanswered, either in official updates or in creator comments. The Base Boss example, as was brought up earlier, was an extreme case, as was them giving an update that essentially said, 'we can't meet the deadline' and then going dead silent for six weeks with no new information. Again, just extreme examples. Different project, same people, but background that is still relevant. Read on. The big blow up in B3 was when the shipping and update schedule, which had been detailed, had obviously changed significantly and nobody could find out what had happened or how it affected them. Did they just skip an update? Did the schedule completely change? Was it another big delay? People had no idea. People were patient, though. They asked, but didn't get upset, when the expected update was a few days late (by Reaper's own estimates it would likely have been Tuesday or Wednesday.) It was when it slipped into the weekend without even a friendly heads-up in the comments by Reaper that people began to feel that they weren't being treated they way they expected Reaper to treat them. Remember, a lot of these same people had just had Reaper completely ignoring them for months in another project. That hurts trust. It only really blew up when people started dismissing their concerns as invalid and condescendingly blowing them off. And when ReaperBryan came in and gave a couple of sentences (yes it has changed, yes we're working on zone 3, we'll have specifics on Monday and Tuesday), it disappeared. That was all people were asking for - basic communication.

    The connection between Base Boss and Bones 3 is that it is the same company doing the same thing that people have been talking about in Bones 3. The connection is that it is a directly related example.
  5. Reaper Bones 3: Post-Kickstarter Discussion

    @Reaperbryan - thank you. That's the kind of thing we were looking for. To be fair, the last we heard, 1 was on a palettes and 2 was on queue.
  6. Reaper Bones 3: Post-Kickstarter Discussion

    Yeah, I've already decided I'm out, as this is going nowhere. But I will leave this last thought: As a customer who feels he is being treated unfairly (I *still* can't find out what I am getting from Base Boss, months later,) what other recourse is there?
  7. Reaper Bones 3: Post-Kickstarter Discussion

    There is no indication that they see anything posted to Kickstarter. I've seen simple questions asked repeatedly there that have gone unanswered for *months.*
  8. Reaper Bones 3: Post-Kickstarter Discussion

    In case it wasn't clear, I'm also 100% confident we'll get our stuff, and 100% fine with the delay, and 100% fine with Reaper folks taking a rest. The only thing I've criticized is that Reaper has failed to keep us informed as to what has changed (when it is obvious something has), and what that means. It isn't unreasonable to expect given the amount of money (and, in some cases, reputation) people have invested in this.
  9. Reaper Bones 3: Post-Kickstarter Discussion

    I honestly don't believe that anyone has been undiplomatic, save for perhaps one post (and that wasn't criticizing Reaper at all - it was attacking everyone who was.) There are right and wrong ways to air grievances, and most have been polite, careful, and as you said, diplomatic.
  10. Reaper Bones 3: Post-Kickstarter Discussion

    I will say that I'm a little disappointed that every complaint was removed, whether there was any anger or hostility involved or not (and there was very, very little hostility in the discussion last night.) As a customer, I'm a little uncomfortable with the idea that one of the main avenues of communication and discussion with Reaper seems to forbid any criticism.
  11. Reaper Bones 3: Post-Kickstarter Discussion

    Just a tip to keep the conversation civil - it is almost never productive to dismiss peoples' concerns as meaningless.
  12. Reaper Bones 3: Post-Kickstarter Discussion

    Just to reiterate, few people are complaining because they lack the patience to wait for their stuff. They're complaining because they were told "I'm ten miles away. I'll call you when I get into town and let you know the plans." Two hours later, they're still waiting for the call.
  13. Reaper Bones 3: Post-Kickstarter Discussion

    There isn't any real doubt that *something* is different than what we were told to expect. There is supposed to be an update between 2 and 3. There has been no update, so either they haven't started on 3 yet, in which case their estimates of 1-2 days for the first two zones with 1 apparently done last Friday was way, way off, or they've started on 3 without the update.

    And repeated loadings/unloadings followed by being spread out across the country will scramble the waves anyway. The USPS doesn't care who locked in their pledge first.
  15. Reaper Bones 3: Post-Kickstarter Discussion

    You'll be before me. I had two other people who invested through me, and it took a while to get us all into place to go over what everyone was getting.
