hmmn.  I wonder what the Special Sophie will be?

 

With some of the moaning last time I'm guessing she won't have a bike.

All I can ever think of with Segways is when the boss of the company died falling off a cliff whilst riding one and I can't get the thought out of my head that it remained upright all the way down.

Whatever the map they have to have one room full of paint pots and little metal\plastic men plus everyone's favorite goblin.

 

 

 

I know what's in the locked room.  :ph34r:


I've heard rumours... little more than hushed, hurried whispers really... :;):

Maybe instead of Mr.Bones, we could have a Mr.Goblin infiltrating Reaper HQ, unveiling stretch goals and add ons as he finds them, with the locked room being the last unveil.

 

 

 

People are just absolutely determined to make me a mascot and part of this, aren't you?  I'm not sure how I feel about other people owning the copyright to me.

 

Wait, yes I am.

 

Dooo eeeet. 

 

Seriously, I'll give you permission.  Whatever you need.  Power of attorney?  Nice pair of stanky shoes?  Basket of barely-rotten fruit?

 

Choice boogers?

 

Sky's the limit, because I love Reaper so much.

I'll take October 15th just because it's my birthday although I honestly think it will be earlier than that.


Was going to post the same thing for the same reason! It'll make it easier to open the wallet, after all, it'd be a birthday gift for myself.

Still going to be a birthday gift for myself regardless.

This is why I don't read Kickstarter comments.

I stay much calmer and happier just tracking events here.

I think Bones and Kingdom Death are the only one I followed comments on, those two were the first big kickstarters I followed the comments on. I was put off shortly after, I don't really bother looking at the comments anymore unless there's something to query.

The KS comments are bad, but not where near as bad as MMO forums...  :wacko:

 

With KS2 happening so close to Halloween, I wonder if it will have the same "undead" pledge levels & theme from the first KS, or if they're going with something different.

I'd be fine with the same nomenclature because it makes understanding the levels easy and I know about what I need to expect. The $$$ buy ins may change a bit, but the naming could be the same; why re-invent the wheel? Besides, sometimes organizations try to be clever and re-do something and it just seems trite. I've seen other kickstarters use 'pledge level names' to try and mimic reaper and I'm like 'groan'.

I was thinking about fulfillment. If the miniatures are going to be cast in Texas they could do shipping in waves. Cast up wave 1, ship it, cast wave 2, ship it, and so on. That way they wouldn't have to store so many miniatures at once. Shipping would be more expensive and of course international backers would have problems. I am not sure if it would be cost effective.

Last KS had 17 machines running 24 hours a day for 6 months.. I don't think we'll be seeing Made in Texas stamped on them anytime soon

I wonder if they could pick one or two "special" minis and produce them in Texas, while the big majority get made overseas. Perhaps the next Mr. Bones will be manufactured entirely in-house?
