Reaper Bones 4: Enthusiasm and Commentary Thread

Recommended Posts

So with less then 2 days left, the core set broke out and NO NEW reveal (which should have been core), is core set done? And just add-ons at this point?

 

The updates state: We are not done adding to the core. 

 

So it's as Argentee says, they are trying to get down to 1 reveal at a time. They showed further out to help hype up excitement earlier but now it's time to tighten down.

 

Bruan in the comments said, sometime today get to one orange goal only.

Hopefully we all wake to a reveal, currently less then 49K. At this point, I cannot take many more reveals, my heads about to explode:) As long as DoD is unlocked, i'm good. Well that and maybe a cat dragon:)

It would have been better to implement it from the start maybe.

I forsee a lot of people wanting that Lost Valley expansion.  Heck, I almost want it myself now, and I really don't *need* any of it.  

 

I hope Glitterwolf is happy, he's got lots and lots of dinos!  ::D:  

 

*** Bounces up and down***

 

Raptors!, Ankylosaurus! Hornslasher! Terrorbird! Cave Sloth! Cave Bear! Mammoth Man! Pesky humans to devour!

I even like the Stone Giants especially the female champion!

Triceratops add on!

 

Now all I want is a Mammoth, a Woolly Rhino, A Kronosaurus, A Feathered T-Rex, A Sabretooth Tiger, An Andrewsarchus, An Ichtyosaurus and a Pterodactyl.

 

I'm not easily satisfied...

Yes, but we can agree that it's a start.

Aww crud, it looks like we broke Kickstarter again.

After having slept on it, I feel better about the VAT. I will get fewer minis than expected, but at least I won't get a huge unexpected bill in spring '19.

GAZEBOOOOOO!!!! :bday:

 

I'm ludicrously excited about this!!! And it's really pretty, too! :wub: Just the thing to lure players into a devious trap! ^_^

 

 

Pfft, I'm going to sculpt a whole scary face that I can whip out and tack on after it turns out to be a mimic! 

 

Huzzah!

--OneBoot :D

I'm gonna need two gazebos, one to look pretty and one to scare people with. Of course, I also have Impact!'s chibi gazebo with monster face :devil:

Are the Jadefires an all-female Orc tribe? :blink::wub:

The VAT announcement that was always clearly on the campaign page???

Reaper themselves stated in the update, that collecting the VAT was new information to them. There are a few problems with this, one being that some backers are from inside Europe but outside the EU (Norway, Switzerland, ...) who have to pay VAT in their country again when getting a package through the UK. Apparently you can mark packages as destined to end up outside the EU and don't pay VAT when importing into the UK or something similar, but the way it is right now those backers pay VAT twice.

Same problem would potentially occur in case of a "hard Brexit" with all the other EU backers.

 

And ofc, it's kind of killing the 48-hours hype when you log in to your pledge manager and see that you blew your budget without adding anything.

If Brexit happens I prefer Reaper to send my stuff directly from US to Netherlands.

I only pay customs once then instead of twice.

Me as well. But what happens to the 20% I already payed for VAT through the PM then?

Good question.

 

It should mean that this covers the customs!

Maybe we should collect all the Europe questions somewhere and try to get them answered. I feel like people are more insecure about EU shipping than before the Update. And ofc noone knows how Brexit is going to work exactly, but some questions are being asked quite a lot, so a "if ..., we do ..." answer would be nice.

I'm not sure about the Valley expansion because AdventureScapes is coming, but I sure wouldn't mind a mammoth, some prey, and hunting dogs so I can play *this* game solo in 28mm... :D

I'm no gamer, purey paint and collect for fun and display.

 

What is Adventurescape?? And is it strictly gaming stuff or is it useful for someone like me?

      A DCC RPG boxed setting for Lankhmar, officially licensed by the estate of Fritz Leiber. Adventure with Fafhrd and the Gray Mouser!

       
      There are three basic pledge levels:
      The PDF pledge level includes an electronic edition of the final boxed set. (Obviously there will be no box!) This level does not include any physical rewards, add-ons or stretch goals. The boxed set includes the core boxed set as described above. All electronic stretch goals (PDFs) will apply to this level. Some of the physical stretch goals will apply to this level, generally those that fit in the box. The final level includes the boxed set as well as the "print pack." All electronic stretch goals (PDFs) will apply to this level. All of the physical stretch goals will apply, as well. Those that do not fit in the box will be shipped in a separate "print pack." See below for more information on these stretch goals.  
      Stretch Goals
      DCC Lankhmar continues a long tradition in RPG gaming, and we want to do right by the estate of Fritz Leiber. The stretch goals associated with this Kickstarter will help create an even more amazing tribute to the world of Fafhrd and the Gray Mouser.
      Stretch goals fall into three categories:
      PDF stretch goals that all backers receive Print stretch goals that can fit into the boxed set, which will be included with any pledge that has the physical boxed set The "Print Pack," which is a printed collection of the stretch goals which don't fit in the boxed set Here is a rough outline of possible stretch goals, which may evolve as the Kickstarter continues.
      At $40,000: Cleared! We will add a new Lankhmar adventure module (PDF for all backers; print copy in the Print Pack)
      At $60,000: We will print the poster map larger (included in boxed set)
      At $80,000: We will add a second Lankhmar adventure module (PDF for all backers; print copy in the Print Pack)
      At $100,000: We will add a supplement called "A Dozen Lankhmar Locations," which will provide information, maps, and floorplans on setting adventures in a dozen famous Lankhmar locales (including the Silver Eel!) (PDF for all backers; print copy in the boxed set)
      At $120,000: We will add a third Lankhmar adventure module (PDF for all backers; print copy in the Print Pack)
      At $140,000: We will add a supplement called "Random NPCs in Lankhmar," which will provide tables and information for generating random NPCs that your PCs can encounter in Lankhmar (PDF for all backers; print copy in the Print Pack)
      At $160,000: We will add a fourth Lankhmar adventure module (PDF for all backers; print copy in the Print Pack)
      At $180,000: We will add a Lankhmar-themed three-panel Judges Screen (PDF for all backers; print copy in the boxed set)
      At $200,000: We will add a fifth Lankhmar adventure module (PDF for all backers; print copy in the Print Pack)
      At $220,000: We will add a cloth map in the boxed set (print copy in the boxed set)
      At $240,000: We will add a sixth Lankhmar adventure module (PDF for all backers; print copy in the Print Pack)
      At $250,000: We will add send Michael Curtis to Houston for a week to research the Fritz Leiber archives in the University of Houston. We anticipate this may result in a new product of some kind to be delivered to backers of this Kickstarter, but exactly what we'll discover in the archives - and what product may result from it - can't be determined until Michael sets foot in the archives!

      About this project
      Code Zero is a 32mm miniatures skirmish game set in a futuristic alternate universe. Players take control of a small squad of troops, broken up into fireteams, competing with each other to achieve one or several objectives and complete their mission. These combat situations usually take place within a theater of war, on the borders along the core worlds of various factions. These dangerous worlds and systems which are on the outskirts of secured core sectors are known as Code Zero's. The owners of the territories tend to change hands monthly since many of them are inhabited by second class citizens, those trying to survive and make a living in harsh future.  
      Code Zero is designed to create a cinematic feel of gameplay, while reflecting the dynamic ebb and flow of the battle that can happen within any given engagement. We do this by utilizing an action/reaction system, allowing both players to interact in a method keeping everyone engrossed with the battle. Utilizing alternate activations along with a different method to resolve reactions this can create some unique situations  
      The first of our miniatures for this universe are digitally sculpted, 3d printed and cast in high quality resin.

      This looks like it could be fun. Pre-painted minis with an odd choice for scale, 65 to 85mm. The early samples do look good though:
