  1. We are live on our Third kickstarter, this one focuses on fantasy cultures and gives them each unique tiles that are 3d printable and you can make those very specific dungeon encounters or city role playing sessions. We also have some new Beasties that will be 3d print compatible! We hope you will join us, with 2 kickstarters on our belt we are confident that our record will be to your satisfaction if you are a new backer, and if you have already been with us you already know what to expect!
  2. While I mentally work my way back to Saladin, I've been doing some small projects. I'm running a 13th Age game and one of my players is a necromancer. She was quite pleased when I produced D'Vandra for her to use during battles. I decided to paint D'Vandra for brush warmup and as OSL practice. Nothing fancy, however, as this figure will see some wear and tear as it gets moved around the battle field. Here are the first steps. I basecoated using Solid Blue, then highlighted with Ashen Blue and Misty Grey. I may go back and push the highlights to a pure white. I'm not quite satisfied with them but also don't plan on spending a ton of time on this figure so we'll see. I then went back and put sold blue, corporeal shadow, purple shadow, and blue liner into the folds of her dress. Here she is now. The shadows have been a bit washed out by the direct light. :(

    A news post on the Eclipse Phase site just announced a Kickstarter campaign for a second edition of the main rules. No exact date yet, but they're planning to release in October, so very soon. I will be backing this one.
  5. Link to the Kickstarter: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1192053011/tales-from-the-loop-roleplaying-in-the-80s-that-ne/description From the Kickstarter: "In 1954, the Swedish government ordered the construction of the world’s largest particle accelerator. The facility was complete in 1969, located deep below the pastoral countryside of Mälaröarna. The local population called this marvel of technology The Loop. In this pen&paper roleplaying game, you play teenagers in the late Eighties, solving Mysteries connected to the Loop. Choose between character Types such as the Bookworm, the Troublemaker, the Popular Kid and the Weirdo! Everyday Life is full of nagging parents, never-ending homework and classmates bullying and being bullied. The Mysteries let the characters encounter the strange machines and weird creatures that have come to haunt the countryside after the Loop was built. The kids get to escape their everyday problems and be part of something meaningful and magical - but also dangerous. The premise of the game and background is interesting, but I have to say it's the art that I find is outstanding. Amazing images.

    This is now live and funded. About this project Wilderlands Talislanta is a fantasy roleplaying game and game-setting that was first published back in 1986. Unlike most RPGs from the 1980s, the Talislanta milieu was not based on traditional Western mythology. It didn’t have the usual Tolkien-esque trappings of games like D&D; in fact, ads for the game proudly proclaimed, “No Elves”. The original Talislanta RPG was inspired by the fantasy novels of Jack Vance, and by other sources such as H.P. Lovecraft’s The Dreamlands of Unknown Kadath, Michael Moorcock’s Elric novels, and The Travels of Marco Polo. The game was set in a strange world of twin suns and seven moons that seemed to be practically overflowing with exotic peoples, places, and creatures. The time was the New Age, a Renaissance-like period that started a thousand or more years after The Great Disaster, a cataclysm that marked the fall of the once-great Archaen Age. During this era, Talislanta was still a dangerous place, especially in the wilderness regions that lay beyond the walled cities. But for many who lived in the New Age, there was also a sense of hope, and the possibility of greater things to come. That Was Now. This Is Then...
  9. So I figured I'd just start a WIP thread, rather than clutter up the forum with unnecessary extras. I hate disorder (although you wouldn't be able to tell that from looking at my workspace! LOL) This week's been mostly working on Gremlins from Malifaux, I have Somer, Slophaulers and Skeeters almost done. Still waiting on flying stand order to come in for Skeeters. Somer's the Bayou Boss, and I have other Bayou Gremlins in my pile of to-be-done but we'll see how long it takes me to get to them. Betrayal at Calth (BAC) is a GW box set of Space Marines that's both a board game and a kind of starter set for Horus Heresy 30k (which takes place before the Warhammer 40k sci fi - just for those who don't follow this). My LGS is doing an escalation league for 30k, and is running a contest for painting the box set. it's about 38 miniatures I think. Really hoping I win, even if I don't play the game because the prize is a free Horus Heresy book of our choice And I love books, even more than I love models so books about models... I'm THERE! Anyway here's my pics (except for the BAC which is still currently in its box lol) ^^ Slophaulers - because they, wait for it, haul slop Just finishing base really on these guys Somer - almost done, working on base now and just need cloth highlighted I think ^^ Skeeters (mosquitos) - trying out colour scheme, pretty much still basecoating although I did highlight their backs, wings and eyes (which still need glaze) Also trying to work on getting more lighting in my room for my light box :( so maybe my pictures will come out better =/ C&C is always welcome :) It helps me get better!
  10. Hi Guys, I have read the guidelines of posting kickstarters and hope I am doing this correctly. If anyone has a chance come along and check out my kickstarter project specialising in hardwood dice boxes. If you have any thoughts or future stretch goal ideas then please I would love to hear them.

    Hi nerds, this is my first Kickstarter. Gotta take care of my gamer nerds yeah? There's inserts for minis, favorite dice, and dice jail. The slots are specifically sized to handle Magic cards with sleeves too. What do you think? I need all the sharing I can get folks. Kickstarter link Twitter: @3xoterricDesigns
  13. Hi folks. I am creating cross-platform map-making software (for Windows and macOS), suitable for creating both print-resolution maps and lower-resolution maps suitable for use with virtual tabletop software. It's called MapForge, and it will be sort of a spiritual successor to Dundjinni, but with a greater focus on stitching maps together from pre-existing map tiles and then customizing the resulting map (with additional decorations, etc.) to suit the GM's particular needs. MapForge should appeal to GMs of face-to-face game sessions and to those using any VTT software, who want to create their own slick-looking battlemaps to visually enrich their RPG sessions (in any genre), but who find existing mapping programs (including image-editing tools such as Gimp and Photoshop) too intimidating/confusing/expensive. I am currently running a Kickstarter campaign to fund the program's development. The software will be priced to be very accessible/affordable, probably $30 or so, but it's just $27 during the Kickstarter campaign. And to help offset the cost even more, there will be at least 9 free content Add-Ons for it, covering various genres. MapForge will also offer a free level of use, so having a license won't be required to make maps with it. Version 1.0 of MapForge should be ready to go on sale in July 2017. Shortly after that, MapForge will also have the ability to generate random "dungeon" layouts via Donjon. I hope you will all take a minute to check out the project, play around with the downloadable prototype, and if you like what you see, tell your GM friends about it. 
 Thanks! --Hernan (aka Heruca) PS: The campaign funded on day 1, and is now at 475% of the funding goal, with ~1330 backers and 9 days to go. All the Stretch Goals have already been unlocked.
  14. It has been a while since I have posted any of my work, and sadly that is because I haven't had much chance to do work. Nothing fancy, mostly just quick tabletop. Recently I managed to get a few bugbears and rats done up for a DnD 4th campaign I am running. The players have bitten off a bit more than they can chew, with a goblin army chasing them through the woods after they freed a dozen prisoners. Rogg is the charismatic (is that the right word for a bugbear?) warlord that the players will likely face if they stay to defend the village that will now have an angry horde of goblinoids coming their way. More rambling and pics on my blog.
  15. It’s lighter, innovative, yet beautiful and functional. Starting from the CUBBLE Dice concept, stripped it from everything that made it metal heavy. Only the essential part was kept: the PIP display - the new HOLLOW dice is built on a groundbreaking idea, and it’s ready to be yours. We have completely overhauled the traditional D6 dice again, producing a die unlike anything the world has ever seen. Made of anodized aluminum, this dice has no inside, making it an empty shell. An inverted version of dice that we already funded successfully, this dice weighs just 1.5 grams, making it perfect for anyone who loves tabletop and dice-based games. Processing these dice requires a lot of time and multiple steps. Not to mention that the die is so easily bent during the machining process, we need to pull together some additional resources for this dice. Making manufacturing more of a challenge for us.

    The Shadows of Esteren team is finally getting around to launching the campaign. It is 500 pages and being split into two books. In something of an interesting choice, the "High Farl" pledge covers everything from this KS as well as being a preorder for the next KS. It is limited to 200 backers, with only 66 left as of this writing. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1176616619/shadows-of-esteren-a-medieval-horror-rpg-dearg?ref=hero_thanks
  19. A general question of interest. During ReaperCon, I was one of the lucky participants of Reaper Wolf's RPG sessions that starred this year's four factions. One thing he mentioned was that the individual adventures (one per faction and one mashup, so five total) would be downloadable and available the Friday following the con. Two and a half weeks later, I finally remind myself to download them. But... where are they? I can't seem to find them on the ReaperCon site, if that's where they are. Since several of us forumites participated, I'm sure I'm not the only one wondering this.
  20. I'm making my own gaming table Here is the rough design: 6ft X 4ft. In the car park next door to work I saw and purchased 3x hemlock slabs (8ft by 2 ft, 1 1/2' thick) at $40 CAD each & 1 cracked 1 at $15. Enough wood to build the lid. I had access to a full work shop so we started cutting! Using the track saw, table saw, thickness plainer & joiner we cut 7 boards 7 1/8' wide and just over 6ft long, 2 of them having live edges. Some of the wood had a little rot so we sanded that out and plan to fill with epoxy. The wood being a little wet still I decided to throw it in the kiln and dry it out to lighten the lid up. I then bought 2 slabs 8ft by 2ft 3' thick at $50 CAD but one snapped in half vertically! Making it around 10' wide and I grabbed the 2 halves for a discounted $15 each. Little does he know that's perfect as I only need them 8' for the sides of the gaming table face. I will edit and update when I'm on a laptop, feel free to ask me any questions. Update: New design after we cut the wood. I also purchased the legs (fur). The base of the table will be one sided finished ply (nice side on bottom) and I will either do a red, green, grey or purple felt on the play area. Any suggestions?

    This one is almost over so I figured it had already been posted here, but if it has my search-fu has failed me. Trudvang Chronicles It is well past its funding goal at this point, and I'll probably never play it, but it is still tempting just to help with a translation project and for the art.
  23. This set was actually designed something like *ten* years ago, but SJG didn't have the resources to actually bring it to market. That is, SJG released other GURPS products they gave higher priority, such as GURPS Discworld. They're using KS to see if there's enough market demand to continue production. SJG has had a few self-contained "Powered by GURPS" books, like Discworld, but haven't released a starter set for generic fantasy. Despite the amount of generic fantasy RPG products on the market, SJG has had demand for a GURPS version, and here it is. $50 plus shipping gets you the entire game set. The pledge goal of 100K has been reached! While many KS purposely set a funding goal that's less than the actual funds needed to fund the project, SJG set an amount that reflected the project. They have already spent resources for the project. Also, unlike other KS, SJG's SG's are rather unsexy, with the first two goals both $5 off shipping. The first goal has been reached. SJG announced that September GURPS and Pyramid Magazine items on their Warehouse 23 will be applied towards this KS! So far, they have added 10K from these sales. This set is targeted towards gamers and roleplayers new to GURPS. For generic fantasy, experienced GURPS players have other GURPS books to choose from. The set will be available retail. Retailers have a pledge level that gets them the set at 1/2 off three sets and a copy of the GM screen. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/847271320/dungeon-fantasy-roleplaying-game-powered-by-gurps/
