Oh, oh!

 

The rock maw is a not-Xorn! I didn't see it a moment ago, but now I do.

 

Suddenly, a not-Umber Hulk feels extremely likely.

 

Maybe even a not-Hook Horror? A Barbed Beast?

Spreadsheeting the new expansion, and I'm at $12/$50 of figures I'd get. Kudos to those finding full value already.

 

For me, I'm good for the rockmaw, phase cat, watcher, and both fungi. Will wait for further reveals before adding. Well, okay, pledging. My pledge would already cover this.

You know, the not-Grell from Dreadmere is really more of an Underdark creature than any kind of Gothic Horror creature. How mean would I be if I didn't get him some friends from his home turf??

*sigh* Reaper.... I love you guys... but trying to explain to my hubby why we're living on Ramen for the indefinite future will be hard.

Whew!  Made my save vs the new expansion. Cool sculpts and all, but nothing really excites me.

I certainly wouldn't say no to some new Drow.  Bobby Jackson's Dark Elves are fine but don't really suit my taste.

 
You had good timing to say that with the new expansion!

Amazing!  We just bumped over $5000 in less than a half hour since the last goal was unlocked!

[...] just want sexual dimorphism that makes sense. It doesnMt make sense to me that a hill giant female would be gorgeous and petite and so completely different from the male. 

 

Applying bird dimorphism to the hill giants would mean the female would need to be uglier than the male ... or larger and fiercer, if it is bird of prey dimorphism. 

 

I can't think of any animal species beyond human where the female is better looking than the male. In all animals the female is either the same, or more drab.

One nice thing about the Phase Cat is that if anyone wanted to make her look canonically like a particular IP's Product Identity, you'd only have to snip off two of the tentacles and voila! And since there are currently four, that means you have a variety of poses to choose from!

Woot! Styling Dark Elves!

 

I wasn't initially enthused by the fungi, until it clicked in my head: Evil fungi + Chronoscope stuff = Dangerous alien flora!

Wait, am I missing something?  Aren't Phoenixes a medium sized monster?

ERMERGERD THAT UPDATE!

 

AD&D 2 says that phoenixes have a 40-foot wingspan. Pathfinder, with the d20 size rules, has phoenixes at the same size as rocs (20' square space, with a larger wingspan). D&D 3 has them at Large, at a 10' square. (In MM2.) D&D 5 does not have a stat block for a phoenix but creates one out of a roc as an example of making your own monsters.

The cross-expansion synergies are killing me dead. I love it!

There were many requests for a displacer beast so the phase cat will get a lot of interest. I see it as two minis. A jaguar and some nice tentacles...love the funghi. Nothing I really want yet. But don't mind me. I'm in it for big stuff and things that can be used for my Lost World Project. No small stuff that doesn't fit for me. I love the dragon turtle. Will get the terrapin and catfish in retail. Zombie dragon and Roc. Giant Cobra if it shows up...and I will get those paints...

      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.
