Le sigh. I made the mistake of asking a question on the KS comments about some stuff in the live stream. When I tried to go back and find it I couldn't. And now I can't even remember what the questions were :unsure:

next time you make a comment, click on your name above the comment, then click 'comments' above the list of kickstarters you've backed, it'll display all comments you've made in order, click on the date at the bottom left of a comment to go to that part of the comment section (you can track reaper this way too)

This. All the time. Drives me crazy. The worst is when you really need to call someone about something and by the time you get them on the phone you don't remember what you wanted to say. (╯︵╰,)

Not a single mini, but my favourite set so far is the trolls.

 

That does not surprise me. ::P:

My guess is an area where "normal" food is in short supply and desperate people will eat just about anything.  They may have figured out that this normally poisionous fish wasn't after it was rotting.  (they didn't eat it, it rotted, they got hungry enough and realized that it didn't kill them).

 

Or it was a dare.

I don't remember as many calls for a roc as there were for cat dragons, so maybe there's still hope of backer requests getting one. But honestly now, I'd rather see dance of death first! Hoping dance of death gets revealed and unlocked, I actually want that now! Roc does look like a phoenix, so I think I'll need to add that to my list once its unlocked:(

 

If we do not get a cat dragon, you need to think of one factor (or at least Reaper does): sale-ability.  We fans here are a limited and rather specialized group of their customers.  We want all the minis.  Most of their customers want minis that they can correlate to a creature in game.  The Roc actually correlates to 3 to 4 creatures in various games. When everyone started requesting it, I'm sure it was a no-brainer for Ron to have it made.  The Cat Dragon on the other-hand, well you might be able to sub it in for something; it really depends on the design. Experienced GMs like novel creatures that they can use, but the vast majority want things that are easily identifiable on sight.

 

This doesn't mean that we won't see a cat dragon, just that it likely isn't as easy a decision as the Roc was.

Yes, That is helpful to see Ron and Bryan's comments in the kickstarter when they are on their mobile.  On the main account their comments are blue and easy to locate.  As individuals much harder to pick them out without getting immersed in the madness.

To add to TaleSpinner's comments:  Another thing to keep in mind is that people have been asking for a Roc for at least a couple of years.  There's been a persistent demand for it.  The cat dragon, AFAIK, is just a meme that popped up shortly before the KS campaign launched.  I would guess that Reaper was planning on producing a Roc when people first starting planning Bones IV.

 

As for Dance of Death, you can probably expect it to become one of the final stretch goals in the last day or two of the campaign.  It's a big, capstone kind of model, similar to the final stretch goals from previous campaigns.

Based on all of this i am guessing that we have not heard any cat dragon news.

There's actually been some variation of cat dragon requests for a while, mostly as an enemy for the mouslings. Not many requests, but there have been some.

I seem to remember last KS people asking for a cat dragon. I might be goofy, but I think that is the case.

 

And personally, I would love some kind of animated Smaug variant on dragons. Or some big drakes, or whatever. Hell, maybe if they make a cool enough mini, it will be accompanied by a pathfinder stat block soon after.

Anyone think that we might get a special reveal or addon because of the eclipse today?  

 

Probably not, but it was just a thought that hit me this morning on the way to work.

 

Here in northern Colorado we will see 95%+ coverage!

      About this project
       

      Thank you for taking the time to check out Divinity: Original Sin 2, our biggest and most ambitious RPG to date!
      A couple of quick facts about the game:
      Divinity: Original Sin 2 is a single- and multiplayer top-down, party-based role-playing game with pen & paper RPG-like levels of freedom.It features turn-based combat, a strong focus on systematic gameplay and a well-grounded narrative. Divinity: Original Sin 2 is the sequel to the critically acclaimed Divinity: Original Sin, winner of over 150 Game of the Year awards and nominations. Winner of GameSpot’s “PC Game of The Year 2014â€. Divinity: Original Sin 2 is currently in development for PC in English. Subtitles will be available in German, French, and Russian. Other platforms and languages may be announced at a later stage, once development is more advanced.
      The theme of Divinity: Original Sin 2 is how your origins affect who you are and what chances you get in life.
      At the start of the game, you pick a single character and determine your starting stats, race, and origin story.

      You'll be able to recruit up to three companions, each of whom is just as detailed as the character you're playing, with their own origin story and motivation to help you in your quest.
      This makes it possible for each companion to become a player character in multiplayer mode; every party member is equally important to the whole.

      In multiplayer, up to 4 players can play together, either cooperatively or competitively.
      During competitive questing, you’ll pursue different plot-lines from other players, often because your personal motivations are in conflict with those of the party.
      To loot or not to loot: You'll have to argue, reason, or duke it out.
      There's no obligation to compete, of course. Many party members will manage to balance their own interests with those of the party. Should you find yourself in conflict, know that it's always possible to make up afterwards.
      The important thing here is that it's you who gets to make that choice.

      Do yourself a favour and take a look at what's on offer even if you've not backed one of Stonehavens projects before.
      Lots of unique and fun concepts scattered throughout,
       
      Plus they've done things a bit differently and have everything already sculpted and shown.
       
      Love the cloaked mysterious strangers.

      This is the Bones 4 Information Thread.
      In an effort to reduce confusion by people seeking information and asking on topic questions, we are creating two threads for our Bones 4 Kickstarter.
      This is the thread for information and questions.  
      This thread will be moderated to ensure forum rules are followed.  Posts of chatter and enthusiasm will be relocated to the Enthusiasm and Commentary Thread.

      https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/2052977442/carnevale-the-miniature-game

      Carnevale is a tactical narrative miniatures game set in 1790's Venice. Safe from the effects of the Rent in the Sky that tore Italy in half, Venice is now a hot-spot of magical activity. Strange creatures rise from the canals, the ruling class play violent games with lesser men, and the population of Venice try to survive. All vie for power in the street fights that take place in the dark of the night.

      Carnevale is a game that focuses on movement and brutal combat. You're as likely to see two people battling in the streets as you are to see warriors jumping from rooftop to rooftop and drowning their opponents in the canals. Using the tight streets and watery dangers to your advantage will ensure victory, and if it doesn't, some well-timed magic spells might!

      Carnevale is a narrative game that sees gamers play through various scenarios with their gangs of fighters. The games skirmishes allow for in depth storytelling, and we have made an effort to streamline rules in order to let the action take place on the tabletop, rather than spending too much time keeping track in the pages of a rulebook. The tactical flexibility opens up when building your gangs how you want, using many varied members to different effect.
