  6. The Dryad Dice Tower & Tray

    About The Dryad Tower & Tray in Ambrosia Maple, Purpleheart, and Leopardwood The Dryad Gaming Co. Dice Tower & Tray is an extremely durable, obsessively made, and elegantly simple accessory for tabletop and role-playing games. My name is Ty. I'm a professional woodworker, specializing is small products, made from domestic and exotic hardwoods. I also love playing games. That's why I've created Dryad Gaming Co. If you're a fan of Dungeons & Dragons, Pathfinder, or other role-playing games, you're familiar with dice towers, and how they can improve your gaming experience. They keep your rolls random, on the table, and quick. We all know that dice towers & trays are great, but there are a few things that set the Dryad towers & trays apart: 1. Real, Traditional Woodworking Joinery: Constructed using actual woodworking joints, these towers and trays can hold up to bumps and tumbles. The wood glue I use is among the toughest available. These also do not use any magnets or "non-traditional" fasteners that can be defeated by a rogue elbow. 2. Built for travel: At around 6 and half inches tall, these are smaller than most dice towers on the market. These take up very little space, and can easily be tucked away in a bag or purse. The Dryad Tower also isn't so big that you can't see your friends or battlemap. 3. Durable and Perfect for Metal Dice: In addition to the tough construction of the Dryad Tower & Tray, it is also finished with an incredibly durable oil-urethane blend. The finish has resins that penetrate the wood fibers and harden. The finish looks and feels great. Oh, and it's totally safe to roll metal dice in these! All fourteen Dryad Towers & Trays Every Tower & Tray is Available in 14 Different Hardwoods The Naiad Series includes White Oak, Maple, Walnut, Ambrosia Maple, and Cherry. Nothing has been dyed or stained; the wood is naturally this beautiful. The Naiad Series

Stretch Goal may also pay for metal mastering and rubber molds for mass production spincast resin models which will allow the project to offer some of the Magical Girls at lower costs to our backers. The miniatures will require light clean up, being primed before painted and might need some assembly (although we will do our best to keep the figures with as few pieces as possible). You can use your reward dollars to get any of the miniatures in the listing below. Meet the girls! MARIYA and the FIGHTING GIRLFRIEND - (70mm tall overall - spincast resin) - $10 Magical Friends Monsters & Enemies
  8. 0-hr: Starship Maps & Miniatures

    About The goal of this 12 day campaign is to reprint some of the ships from the early days of the Armada. The initial goal will reprint the Clydesdale, Mourning Wolf, and Venture posters. Higher funding levels will unlock the Grendel, Cygnus, and Grphyon posters for purchase as well. Prices are substantially lower than retail and include free links to valuable digital products as well. All of the posters will be available alone or in combination with their corresponding miniature(s). Backers can mix and match among the available ships as desired. Pledge for the total number of posters or combos you desire, and the survey at the end of the campaign will let you pick what you want for each slot. Pricing Posters are $15 each for the first four. $10 for each additional. Each combo adds $8 to include the matching miniatures. All pledge levels will receive links to digital images of the posters and the corresponding issues of Future Armada or Armada Codex at DriveThru and RPGNow.com. Shipping is $6 to $12 for the US, depending on weight. Posters are 24x36 inches, double sided, and shipped rolled rather than folded. The maps are at 1 inch = 5ft scale and have a subtle 1-inch grid built into the floor. Most of the miniatures are about 2 inches (50 mm) long. They come unpainted and include a 1 inch, clear acrylic, hex base. Both maps and minis fit easily into Starfinder and many other science fiction role-playing games. Starfinder stats are available free for several of these ships at my Port Zero page (more coming soon!). Most of these ships were designed with an adventuring party in mind. They typically require a small crew but have bunks for larger groups. All are at least lightly armed, and many carry small craft as well. If the ship fits completely on one side of the poster, then a variant is provided on the back - giving you another option. Both versions are completely described in the supporting digital documentation.

  10. About "The Forest of Oakenspire", a brand-new tabletop fantasy RPG project including 3D-printable terrain & accessories, battle maps, and more! Explore ancient tree strongholds and soar through the branches above on modular airships! What is this project all about? Welcome to our first Kickstarter! This project aims to bring a brand-new, uniquely-themed set of 3D models, and other resources, to your gaming tabletop to inspire your players, and drive countless hours of adventure. There are two main categories for this project: the tree strongholds of Oakenspire (with multiple levels of playable space and secrets to discover), and modular airships you can customize for various encounters among the trees–or anywhere else! Additionally, there will be supplemental content to help spur your imagination, including a PDF with adventure hooks and encounter ideas, along with unique, 2D-printable battle maps that coordinate with the 3D printed components! Community created & inspired Initially I started this project as a solo-mission, creating 3D printable models - but it has since taken on a life of it's own and expanded well beyond my initial goals. I am one of many creators who has turned a hobby into something more, and there are countless others like me who have done the same. As I continued to meet more and more of these creators, I began feeling a burning desire to work with, and feature the work of, as many as possible and build a project that touches all the areas of tabletop RPG gaming that I love! To that end, this project includes supplemental materials, produced specifically for this Kickstarter, from the amazing work of 6 other individual creators who have chosen to participate and be featured - ranging from 2D battle map artists, to illustrators, writers, software developers, and other 3D modelers. They are mentioned related to their work throughout this Kickstarter description, but there is a complete list (and links to their respective pages) at the end. I also plan on featuring many of them and their work on this Kickstarter through various updates during the campaign. Be sure to take a look! Modular Airships I have worked to create what I hope are some of the most modular, dynamic, and beautifully designed airships to have graced tabletop gaming to date. You can customize and print your own unique airship for your players to explore your worlds, or assemble a diverse, powerful armada to rule the skies! The airship body prints in individual sections that require no support, connect together with OpenLOCK clips, and will fit on the build plate of most commercial at-home 3D printers. Two options exist for the style and power of your airship: steam-powered or magical. Various wing, turbine, fin, sail, and decor customization options are also included. The airship is designed to use 5x1mm disc magnets to quickly change out the main and rear wings and fins (or just glue in place if you don't need modularity). A rock base, multiple variations of bottom fins, and 8mm acrylic rods let your airship "fly" above the tabletop. STL exists to print rods instead of using acrylic as well, and the airship easily comes off the stand to sit flat on the table during play. To check out the full modular & customization guide, CLICK HERE. In addition to the core modular airship options. there are many stretch goals to further customize the ships and add airship-specific items to your table. Airship variations made with core set parts

  12. About Follow me on my next campaign to Japan and China This campaign is mostly located in old Japan. But I will add some Chinese buildings, that you can use for games during the Boxerrebellion. Maybe you can mix the terrain, if you find some generic. We start our campaign with typical Japan townhouses in different styles. You will get some typical different roof types. First town build set will have townhouses, a townwall and a gate section. Following Stretch Goals will offer files with rural buildings, spiritual buildings and accessories, as for example market live. The highlight of course will - with later stretchgaols - a Samurai Castle. The main castle in the wallsections outside the main building. Bridges in Japan style also will follow. You have a wide bandwidth to use this buildings in much scenarios. The initial modelling scale is 20/22mm. But the files are optimized to downscale them to 15mm or upscale them to 28mm. 15mm = 73% (0.73 in Cura) 28mm = 127% (1.27 in Cura) If you game in "Heroe scale", (ca.32mm) scale up to146%. We recommend printers with a bed size nearly 200 x 200 mm (as Prusa, Ultimaker or Clones have. Also Makerbot & Clones 225 x 150mm will work). If you game with 28mm figures, we do not recommend this files for users with miniprinters (bed size 150x150mm or smaller) !! 15mm will run without problems, larger scale much buildings will not fit on this miniprinters. If multiple storeys, each storey is separate with floor. Roofs of course detachable. Support this campaign and bring it to success as the last Campaigns, for which I thank the backers again... Hope I will see my "Grognards" from my Campaigns before and welcome new backers..... My old backers know, during campaign I hear your wishes and many addons come during campaigns. So don´t wonder if you see no drawings for higher stretchgoals in the starting phase of this campaign. Stretchgaols can change on request from backers !! We do not work with extra payable add-on´s. All what you see, you will get as a 40 Euro all in backer. So help that many people come to this campaign to reach the stretchgoals. So much stuff will be included in this campaign .... The Dojo. This is not a stretchgoal. It´s a thank to all 40Euro Backers and content of the town. An alternative roof will follow.

  15. A thief tale: Ars Draconis

    About In “A thief tale: Ars Draconis” we put ourselves in Thyra’s shoes, a young woman whose skills as a thief have turned her into one of the Citadel’s most wanted. She will be assisted by many fascinating allies who will help her solve all the puzzles hidden in this huge Victorian city, its intrigues, conspirations, and of course find the answers to the gaps in her knowledge about her past. In an island amid the vast ocean the wind whispers rumours about an ancestral object… Thyra, a reputed thief herself, won’t let the opportunity of acquiring such an object go away, and she will try to make the most out of it – whether that implies selling it to the highest bidder or using it. But the mysterious object attracts the attention of the three factions fighting for the Citadel’s control, and they will do anything to get it for themselves… even if that means burning the city down. "A thief tale: Ars Draconis" uses the basic mechanics that have made 2D action games wonderful and challenging, We wanted the gameplay to be familiar to all those who love the genre and at the same time to add unique elements from multiple videogame and tabletop role-playing games genres, creating an experience that invites players to stay in The Citadel. Experience a hectic adventure In this narrative, inspired in pen-and-paper roleplaying games, you will enjoy an elaborate and extensive adventure full of secrets, conspirations and charming characters who will appear along the three possible paths through which you can decide the Citadel’s destiny. Aside from the main plot you will have several sub-plots available, all of which will help Thyra see the events in a whole new light. We estimate about 40 to 45 hours of gameplay including all plots but... there will always be some new secret in store for you in the Broken Valley Island! Two heads are better than one Thyra won’t be living this adventure by herself — her odd friend Sokrattes will be by her side from one end to the other and advise you in key scenarios. Even better — you can switch between both of them and pick the best solution to each one of the situations you’ll have to face throughout this adventure! And what is more, if we reach our multiplayer goal, you will be able to play both characters at the same time with the help of a friend. Clean-cut pixel art The world in “A thief tale: Ars Draconis” revolves around a victorian city full of retrofuturistic and fantastic elements. Everything in the game, from scenarios and characters to animations, is created using traditional pixelation techniques. We aim to honor those classic games that made us, both the old and new generations, enjoy so much back in the day. To do this we rely on our pixel artist, who has more than ten years of experience in the field. An unforgettable soundtrack We are decided to dedicate as much time and effort as possible to create a soundtrack able to transmit each and every sensation Thyra will feel in the numerous and assorted settings that the Citadel has to offer. To achieve that we have bet on orchestral integration with classic chiptune, giving a retro and epic feel to every situation. This being a very complex task, our studio counts on one of the best Galician musicians, who has been on tour both in Spain and Europe with renowned artists as Jose Rubio or Pacho Brea. Pick your weapon Our combat mechanics are based on old-school action games and platformers, to which we have added a wide variety of weapons and gadgets that will make for a dynamic combat, allowing Thyra to mirror the player’s preferred combat style. As any self-respecting thief, Thyra will have to be stealthy and always go for the most discreet way to do things. We have implemented a complete system where everything counts: the sound of our steps, the enemies’ field of vision, and even the noise we make when we knock out (or kill) any guard standing between us and our goal. Exploring the Citadel From the beginning we’ve been adamant about offering you a world in which you will be able to find the path that better suits you and shape your own story. That’s why the Citadel is an open world environment for you to explore to its full extent; be it to learn about its history, steal valuable treasures or plan your next heist as you think best.

  18. Commando Ninja

    https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/304054692/commando-ninja Caution nudity in trailer. About VERSION FRANCAISE COMMANDO NINJA is an 80's action comedy, tribute to the Action Hero Movies, written and directed by Benjamin Combes. The story follows a Vietnam Green Beret Vet, Half Commando, Half Ninja, whose daughter has been abducted by a secret Ninja Organization, led by a Central-American dictator, who wants to create a new-world order... through time... Follow Commando Ninja on: FACEBOOK When I started this project over a year and a half ago, I was driven by a strong love for the 80s (This is David Sandbergs line but I can't say better). I watched again all Schwarzenegger, Stallone, Van Damme, Chuck Norris, Steven Seagal, Dolph Lundgren movies; wrote my script, took $5000 of my own money and just started shooting whenever my friends and I had time! We have now enough material to create a 45 minute long film! Commando Ninja takes place in a variety of exotic locations: 1980s Los Angeles, Canada mountains, Vietnam War, Central-America, Post-Apocalypse... John will live an adventure through many places ... and times Everything was shot on real sets, with practical VFX, as they did in the 80's! There is absolutely no way we shoot something on a green screen! The soundtrack of the movie will feature famous Synthwave artists like Cobra Copter, Flash Arnold and OGRE. The original soundtrack has been composed by a great music composer, Thomas Cappeau, and is by itself a love letter to the 80's action movie soundtracks : Other famous artists from the 80's revival wave joined the project, among them : - Blood+Chrome made the Commando Ninja animated logo
  19. EDIT: Kickstarter is now Live! "Hi everyone, we are back - and with a brand new Kickstarter! Later this week we are launching a Kickstarter featuring Viking and Anglo-Saxon ships, buildings and accessories - and we wanted to get the word out. Yes...more ships! During the Kickstarter we'll be making some of our older ships and popular models available for a limited time as well as the new ones. Same designs - but now unpainted. To recap on our history: Last year we closed up our webstore and decided to pretty much quit making models. But after some thought we came up with the idea for a "Model of the Month" (MoTM) - evolve to go forward! Each month we make a brand new model available for purchase - we take orders, build and ship exactly that number, then "retire" the kit and move on to something else on the next month. We have been slowly building up customers and getting the word out there. Some models did better than others but what was clear to us was that we still enjoyed making models, just at a more relaxed pace. Only doing one model a month was way more enjoyable and because we could mass-produce more efficiently - it's also a better business model for us. Renaissance Miniatures has never been our bread and butter. We do okay on Model-of-the-Month and Kickstarters but the webstore was always more pain than gain. Then came our small Viking ship as one of our MoTM offerings. Vikings was a genre we had never done before but our ship models are always a favorite of customers. So, rather than spinning them out over months - lo and behold: A new Kickstarter featuring what a lot of people know us for..ships! The Model of the Month is on hold right now while we get the Kickstarter running - but it'll start up again in a couple of months. But for now, the Viking Kickstarter is the main priority. Getting the models made and sent out to backers as quickly as possible. So please join us next week and follow along. Give us some feedback and lets make this fun again. We love talking with you guys. And we love having our models be involved with your enjoyment of tabletop gaming. Now....lets play! If all goes well, we'll launch the new Kickstarter on the 9th (this coming Friday)"
  20. Some friends are doing this, under their Infinite Dimensions Games, though I'm not involved. The Kickstarter will take place in March and is for digital files for 3D print. If I remember correctly there are no physical rewards. While people should hold off until the details of the crowdfund are released, my understanding is that the core set is done, any stretch goals will pay for the labour of doing the design/sculpting of those items only, so the core set would be ready as soon as funding period is over. They have a Facebook and Instagram and more for lots of previews (but I'm not linking because I'm not sure what on those sites will break forum rules), and if anyone is attending BreakoutCon this year in Toronto, they will be there displaying.

Art comparison between 2012 and new edition. Weighing in at over 500 pages, Rappan Athuk for Fifth Edition is an instant classic in the Mega-Dungeon genre, featuring 100+ keyed and color mapped areas with over 56 dungeon levels, several satellite dungeons (almost 20 additional levels!), the village of Zelkor's Ferry, 22 wilderness areas (ways to die before you ever reach the dungeon) and seemingly countless groups of bandits and monsters that prey on those fortunate enough to escape the halls and caves of Rappan Athuk with treasure in hand! With decades of playtesting and use in campaigns across the globe, the Dungeon of Graves can be a foundation of any campaign or eviscerated into pieces and blended into any campaign! Map comparison between the two editions. Once upon a time, there was an idea—an idea formulated by Gary Gygax and Dave Arneson in 1974 and published in a little paperback book called Underworld Adventures. The idea was simple: it is a lot of fun to go into a dungeon and kill evil monsters. Why is the dungeon there? No one knows. Why do the monsters usually fight rather than talk? We aren’t really sure. Why are there 16 trolls in a cave with a jug of alchemy? No one cares. What do all the monsters eat? We don’t know that either (although “adventurer” probably tops the list). And we don’t have to know these things. This isn’t an ecology experiment, it’s a dungeon—the quintessential setting for pure swords and sorcery adventuring. This adventure pays homage to that original idea. True, there are opportunities for role playing, but most of this module is dedicated to “roll playing.” Hopefully, while exploring the halls of Rappan Athuk, you will recall the thrill of discovery, the terror in your heart when you fought your first skeleton, the joy of rolling your first natural 20, and the despair you felt when that 1 came up for your poison save. This module, Rappan Athuk—The Dungeon of Graves, is nothing more and nothing less than a good, old–fashioned, First Edition dungeon crawl updated for the 5th Edition Roleplaying Game. Very difficult, it should strike fear into the hearts of the most stalwart adventurers. It offers an abundance of traps, tricks, and monsters. We hope that you find this module as fun and exciting as those thousands of players who have ventured into (and not as often out of) the endless caverns and mazes of Rappan Athuk—The Dungeon of Graves. Rappan Athuk is a difficult dungeon. Even the upper dungeon levels should not be attempted by a party of less than six mid-level characters. Only truly veteran players should attempt this dungeon with lower level characters. In light of this, we added the satellite dungeons, including Bill's very first work (from 1977), Tunnels of Terror! This 9-area dungeon was used as the introduction to his campaign and led his players to Rappan Athuk through play.
  22. Kickstarter is now Live: A miniatures boardgame with prepainted minis.
  23. About We are Bad Seed and, for the past couple of years, we’ve been developing INSIDIA, a video game of turn-based mayhem. INSIDIA has its roots in our love for board games and wargames, a passion that was a constant inspiration during the whole development process. Buried somewhere in the depths of our studio, it is still possible to find the very first INSIDIA mock-up: a squared sheet of paper crowded with cardboard figures. During these two years, we created many unique characters and a virtual world for them to fight for. It was an extremely rewarding task and yet, after each day of work, we couldn’t help to say “Wouldn’t it be amazing to have REAL miniatures of our heroes?” So here we are. After having printed our very first prototypes, a small army of 75mm Gunthers, we are ready to create miniatures of the most iconic champions INSIDIA has to offer. Thanks to their details and their unique post-apocalyptic-fantasy aura, our miniatures will stand out both on a shelf and in a battlefield! All miniatures can be 28mm or 75mm. Both sizes require assembly. The Core Set includes the following champions: Gunther, Infestus, Naima, Shiryo, Trauma, Jaril. Additional champions will be available if we reach the appropriate Stretch Goal. If you pledge for anything different from the core set, you will be able to choose which miniatures to receive, between those that have been unlocked, after the campaign has ended. For now just add to the pledge total the combined cost of the miniatures you want. The campaign will last 30 days. The miniatures will be only available during this campaign and will be casted for Kickstarter backers only. They will never be sold in stores. All pledges starting from 20€ will include a single Add-on for each type unlocked through the Stretch Goals. To receive multiple Add-ons, increase your PLEDGE TOTAL by the reward's amount. You will confirm your choices with a post campaign pledge manager. Shipping fees are NOT included in the pledge amount. Shipping date will be around October 2018.
