The campaign is over and i'm already thinking about adding the passage wall add-on in the PM

 

Honestly, I feel like the passage walls and corners are the pieces I'm most excited about. I never bought the original passage sets because I just wasn't feeling the design; and they're costly since each piece uses as much plastic as a corner. I have seen how the passages actually help make for solid elevated builds, so I had been tempted to get some. I just think these new pieces are going to be so versatile, whether in rooms or hallways.

I'm excited about dungeon elevation stuff. The lack of decent elevation tools is what's kept me from getting ks1 stuff. I am also getting more excited about the passages as time goes on, but the blocks and ramps and daises have me so keen. I am already in for one elevation mega set, it's so hard to convince myself not to get even more elevations.

I ended the campaign with a pledge in but still in considerable uncertainty about what I'll actually pick in the pledge manager. DF KS's have way too many moving parts.

Quite a bit more expensive than just getting one of the two passage add ons, but you could also take a look at Doomrollers.  The more I looked at that encounter the more I realized it was chock full of bread and butter.  A ton of passage walls, corners and regular 2x2 floors. I'm debating on it because honestly, I wasn't all that worked up about the boulder and ramp since that's a gimmick I'd use probably no more than once a campaign, but the value still seems to be there. For me, its just about deciding whether I want a bunch of bread and butter, or if I want less BnB and some elevation stuff.

I am thinking I will add Acid Bath for the passage walls and the elevation stuff.

This is exactly how I feel. I dropped from Level 4 to 3 to make room for Doomroller because I want that Bread & Butter. Maybe I can sell or trade away the Doomroller.  I don't dislike it, I just don't need it. I'll have to triple check this against multiple Passage Intersection packs, but I'll probably stay with this.  (Also, note there are 3 passage add-ons. They made a third one just for people who already have a ton of floors.)

So they are sending out preliminary pledge manager invites and I somehow got one.  Ended up going in for a level 5 unpainted pledge with the magnets.  I'm still trying to figure out a way to push it up to a DoD before it closes, but I have a feeling I'm going to settle for just shrine as an add on instead.

I finished my PM and went from 754 to 795, so not a whole lot. I am no longer going all-in on DF, I have too much already.

From update 32 at the bottom they are saying October 8th is when it will close.  So it'll be open for less than a month unfortunately.

Thanks! Hopefully I can scratch together enough disposable funds for what I want to add.

We are sitting on the eve of the PM closing. I have very little funds to add anything and lots I want to add.

 

I pledged at Level 3, but am thinking of switching to Acid Pool+Jade Sysuul instead. Thoughts?

I’m personally sitting at level 5 plus jade shrine.  I think the shrine is a good choice.   It has some unique stuff and the special jade dwarvenite adds some flare. I guess it just depends what pieces you really want with your other choices.

 

If I wasn’t going dungeon lvl 5, my top picks were gorgon tiers, eldritch pools, and the menagerie.  Those were my personal favorites and they have some fairly unique pieces in each one.

 

This is my first DF purchase so I’m going as all in as I can.

I have quite a bit of DF already. I am torn between:

 

Level 1 ($82), Acid Pool ($129), Jade Sysuul ($394), Force Walls ($14), Puzzles ($23), Cages x2 ($30), Floor Trap Pack ($27) - total ($689)

 

-OR-

 

Level 1 ($82), Acid Pool ($129), Fanatics Trove ($99), Puzzles ($23), Cages x2 ($30), Epic Stairs ($20), Classic Dungeon LED Walls ($28), Classic Dungeon Magnetic Wall Set ($27), Elrid's Mystic Trove ($55), Wicked Dungeon Trove ($67), Jade  Inner Sanctum ($67), Floor Trap Pack ($30), Dungeon Bridge ($44) - total ($701)

 

 

I would love to add more passage walls to either (especially magnetic), but that taps out the budget. Any advice on what I have listed?

I might instead adjust slightly to this:

 

Level 1 ($82), Gauntlet ($92), Acid Pool ($129), Fanatics Trove ($99), Puzzles ($23), Cages x2 ($30), Epic Stairs ($20), Classic Dungeon LED Walls ($28), Elrid's Mystic Trove ($55), Wicked Dungeon Trove ($67), Jade Pillars ($20), Dungeon Bridge ($44) - total ($689)

 

If I can get confirmation that there will be a preorder time and I can preorder Jade Sysuul, then I think this is my order (and I cross my fingers I can save enough for the preorder window).

      So here are some painted dwarven forge castle props. Was tired of all the base grey stuff.
       

       
      The cauldrons are for poring hot oil on attackers, the steps are for putting on the ladders so minis can stand on them and the square bits are covers for battlements.

      About this project
      Add extra depth to your gaming sessions with Adventure Realm RPG Game Tiles – Castles and Dungeons set. We want to create a set of 16 eight inch square tiles with full colour printing on both sides, giving you over 2000 square inches of mapping artwork for your gaming. Each tile has one inch square grid subtly included on the images, making them ideal for integrating with your miniatures and roleplaying.  They are made on thick card and are gloss laminated to be compatible with dry-wipe marker pens.

      On one side of the tiles are sixteen top down view castle tiles, ideal for quickly putting together a city wall or castle complex for your adventurers to explore. The castle tiles comprise the following:
       
       
       

      1 x Wall outward corner, 4 x Wall inward corner, 1 x Gate, 5 x Straight walls, 1 x Dungeon entrance, 1 x Well courtyard, 1 x Grassed courtyard, 1 x Keep roof, 1 x Fenced corral

      The castle tiles can be put together to make a complete small stronghold (above), while two sets give you plenty of options for an entire fortress (just one example given below).

      Turn the castle images over and you have 16 dungeon tiles, all in full colour, giving you a flexible warren of corridors and rooms to battle through.  The dungeon tiles include:
      1 x Throne room, 1 x Tower stair well, 1 x Cellar stairs, 1 x Prison cells, 1 x Torture chamber, 1 x Demonic temple, 1 x Carpeted corridor, 1 x T Junction stairs, 1 x Circular pit, 1 x Wizards tower, 1 x Corner corridor, 1 x Storage room, 1 x Guard chamber, 1 x Tower chambers, 1 x Grassland secret entrance, 1 x Water secret entrance

      The dungeon tiles can create the area underneath a castle, or be used in their own right for quickly assembling evocative dungeon scenes for adventurers to explore.
      This is our second Kickstarter project for the Adventure Realm series, with our first set of tiles successfully funded in November 2016.  The Castle and Dungeon set will work seamlessly with the original Town and Wilderness set.  So if you want a city wall between the town buildings and the great outdoors, now you can!
      Or you can expand your townscape to include fortified areas, underground  spaces, etc.
      If you missed the Kickstarter for Town and Wilderness you can add that set to your pledge to make even bigger adventuring worlds.

      I saw these at Gencon; a little heavy, but I like the storability.

      About this project
      PLEASE NOTE: 
      A starter 3D printer begins around $220 (see F.A.Q.) Each pledge level includes all previous pledge levels. The optional $10 Add-On sets shown below can be added to any pledge level by adding the appropriate amount to your core pledge, or select one of the 'Hero' pledge levels that fits your needs. There is no pledge level that includes the 'Prior Kickstarter Add-Ons'. You must add the amount for these sets to whatever pledge level you choose. We do not use an after-campaign pledge manager. All pledges must be in by the end of the campaign. DRAGONLOCK™ is an interlocking terrain system that allows you to create fully modular, multi-level 28mm scale village terrain for your RPG or wargame on your home 3D printer. Each set is delivered in a downloadable .stl format via our online distribution partner DriveThruRPG.com, and once you have the set, you can print as many pieces as you like and never run out or need to purchase more. These terrain sets represent the culmination of over twelve years of gaming terrain design experience.
      Fat Dragon Games is the only 3D printer terrain company that is part of the prestigious DriveThruRPG Community Content program, which includes Margaret Weis Productions, Monte Cook Games, and Wizards of the Coast’s DMs Guild. Our Dragonbite Community Creator program allows YOU to sell your own Dragonbite-compatible terrain designs on DriveThruRPG, RPGNow, and Wargame Vault!
      By supporting us through Kickstarter, you get bonus models that won't be available later, and access to free stretch rewards. We have been in the 'print-and-play' terrain business for over twelve years, and have successfully delivered eight previous Kickstarter projects, so you can pledge with confidence that we will deliver a high-quality product on time.
      FREE STRETCH REWARDS that will increase the size of the terrain offerings will be available to anyone pledging at the 'Realm of the Mountain King' pledge level or higher. Spread the word about this project to your friends and post about it on Facebook, Twitter, Google+, etc., and GET FREE BONUS MODELS as the pledges rise!
      A standard dungeon wall piece costs around $0.40 in plastic to print yourself, far cheaper than factory-made terrain! All of the models shown were printed at 100-200 micron resolution, a common standard on most economical 3D printers. A nice starter printer that can print these files starts around $220 (see our F.A.Q. for more info on printers, printing costs, filaments, and more.)
      Even if you don't currently own a 3D printer, it benefits you to support this campaign now. You can get all of the free stretch rewards, exclusive content in some sets not available later, and have a digital library of village terrain ready to go when you do purchase a printer.

      A set of 13 detailed male & female 28mm scale gnome miniatures, suitable for all your Fantasy miniature games, from Midlam Miniatures.
       
      About this project
      The Baron of Midlam, on dealing with the matter of the 'Winter Adventurers' returned home to Midlam Manor, to a most alarming sight.  For there, at the end of his estate, at the bottom of the garden, was a hill, where previously, there had been no hill.
      Fortunately the Wizard Gudgrief had accompanied him, and was quick with sage advice.  "I fear my Lord, that you have a mild infestation of gnomes, the common or garden sort.  Quite harmless, I assure you... "
      The Baron did not look best pleased, for this was Midlam Manor, his supposedly secret retreat, far from the hustle and bustle and plotting and scheming of Midlam Town.  And now there were gnomes here.
      Gudgrief, sensing the Baron's dismay was quick to step in.  "You'll find they are no bother, indeed, they are good at tending gardens so they team with flowers, will protect your grounds from wild animals and alert you to the coming of foes.  Other than that, you'll hardly know they are here... harrumph, apart from the hills of course... they do so like to build hills..."
      Midlam Miniatures are pleased to present a collection of thirteen 28mm scale figures, for all of your Fantasy games. There are a variety of both male and female gnome miniatures.
