Dwarven Forge KS5 Back to the dungeon

Recommended Posts

I don't know as Ive never participated in one of their kickstarters. I just know they have a distribution center in Europe. (don't know what country) I would think they would use it...but I don't know for sure...

On the DF website they have a link to the European web site/store that is run over in the United Kingdom by a guy that goes by Thod.  He brings in stock when each KS delivers but I do not believe DF has any KS distributor.

 

I think the KS is a catch 22 from a European stand point, they need a KS distributor to increase KS precipitation in Europe but for it to make financial sense they would need European precipitation to be huge.

They did do dungeons first up. Now they are revisiting with 3 years further knowledge of dwarvenite manufacturing and sculpting experience behind them. It is gonna be like day and night. The KSI pieces were very very simple. These should be far better.

 

And a pro tip for using DF and the partial squares on wall and corner pieces is: If you want a more cramped environment, rule that all partial squares do not exist, if you want a bigger environment, say all partial squares are actual full squares. It makes a huge difference in movement and the like. 

 

I am in Japan, so 40% of my order goes to shipping most times. It is a ton of money, I grant, but the product is really good and frankly everything has that huge shipping markup. I imagine in Europe it would be easier to get stuff from another EU country and save on shipping.

Sorry I meant the Secret Weapon / Reaper collaboration on Dungeon tiles with the mines theme (see the thread in this forum) could probably have done dungeon which they decided not to do because of dwarves forge.

 

I am going to be interested to see the price comparison.

HornedTurtle, I just read through the KS posting guidelines and I don't see that stated anywhere.  I do not however believe they have announced a  launch date.  My guess would be March as that is their traditional launch date.

 

Bassed on the very few pieces they have revealed so far it seems as they are going for almost a Dwarven dungeon look not that it could not represent any dungeon.  I have a ton of KS1 dungeons, but I will probably pick up 2 or 3 sets and some decor stuff.

 

I would love to see a Secret Weapon / Reaper dungeon set.  The way I look at it the more variety and options the better.

So many things I hope to see in this KS. I would like:

 

1. Walls with metal in them (to hang magnet decor on).

2. Walls with LED sockets.

3. Dwarven Ruins

4. Castle moat set

5. A fantasy floor set

6. A mega floor set

7. Advanced Tudor building sets

8. Pieces that get you out of the 2x2" grid.

9. A lot of decor

10. Fun things I can't even think of.

 

It sounds like they are way ahead this time with "over a hundred sculpts already sent to China for prototyping".

"We’re pleased to announce our plans to launch our 5th Kickstarter later this spring (probably in May, but the firm date is still TBD). The focus of this year’s campaign is taking us back underground into the dungeon! We’ll be posting some initial photos here from time to time and would love to hear your thoughts!"

I think you did a good job.

 

Just remember to put the awesome pictures in a second post as when the mods tag the topic you will loose the pics.

 

Someday soon. ;)

      This version includes a Bridge and much more.
      2 Stretch Goals down, and the third to break soon.

      Thanks.

      Whether you’re new to the Pathfinder® universe or you’re a seasoned veteran, Pathfinder: Kingmaker® is the CRPG you’ve been waiting for. 
      Here at Owlcat Games, we love and are inspired by classic isometric computer RPGs like Baldur's Gate, Fallout and Arcanum. Our dream is to rekindle the thrill of playing those games for the first time. Building your hero, exploring the unknown, getting to know your companions, experiencing the adrenaline rush of your first battle (and your last), delving into mysterious dungeons, and—most importantly—seeing your protagonist and your world change through your actions.
        We've always been big fans of the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game® from Paizo, Inc®, so we thought: How cool would it be to do this in the beloved Pathfinder setting? Paizo agreed, and with your support, we hope to bring a brand-new fantasy saga to life.
       
       
       
       
      I do not have good experiences backing computer games on Kickstarter ... and Pathfinder does not have a good history with computer games. Still, I'm willing to back this. I like the Pathfinder system, the setting, the Adventure Path ... I think they are doing the right thing here (combat is real-time pause, party based, lots of companions and as a whole they are inspired by Baldur's Gate, Torment , etc. - well, who isn't? And they've got Chris Avellone as "narrative designer").

      Deep Madness is a scenerio based game with a limited number of turns to complete your objective(s) before the horrors overrun the world.
       
      The miniatures range from 33-60mm with a good amount of detail.
       
      The tiles are double sided with a normal and corrupted version of the same room.
       
      Deep Madness is live.

      Kinda feels like Norse and "northern" miniatures are the new Cthulhu/zombie/dwarves on kickstarter.
