You most certainly did not.

 

I looked through the campaign posts a little bit and I think I see what happened. is that if you looked at the price point and went "That's cool, what's the capstone?" the line "We've got just a few hours to go, and we're NOT DONE showing new rewards! Stay Tuned!" would be totally consistent with the mistaken assumption that Argent wasn't the capstone and there was another big one coming.

 

Not sure that explains all of it but that's my best guess right now.

 

Oh well! :)

 

I think we might spend more on this than we did on Bones 3. And Bones 3 was a dangerously high total...

 

that sounds familiar, i actually think that's what i read that made me think something bigger was coming

This is why everyone should go to the party.  Then you miss out on most of the updates and have no clue what is going on until days later when you finally catch up.

I know I asked a couple of days ago but I am hoping that since  @Reaperbryan is around that I might get a better answer.

 

How big is Nyarlathotep?  Is the drawn figure a stand in for Sir Forscale?

If it's a "death fight", then Kaladrax has already won! :devil:

I think the $20 price tag is why people didn't think he was a Capstone.

He's a foot tall, and by the looks LONGER then that. How do people think that's NOT a capstone???? And $20 bucks, that's a freaking deal!

I get an extra Jackson by July, I may even buy two:)

I hunk another factor in the belief the Argent wasn't the capstone was the fact it was just an image.  Not only did that make it hard for people to appreciate, it gave it the feel if something that did not hold capstone importance.   I know there were probably lots of factors going on that we know nothing about, but I strongly urge Reaper to have something physically existing to show for their capstone pieces in the future.   I think we can all remember the impact of seeing Mal rotating in his fully formed glory.

I *have* to say we're NOT DONE like that because I learned years ago that if I don't, some numbskull chimes in with OH MY GOD THEY ARE OUT OF REWARDS THIS IS THE END THERE'S NO MORE PANIC PANIC PANIC and you people FREAK out like we turned a firehose on a nursery full of kittens.  You'll note I had to keep saying "AND WE"RE NOT DONE WITH CORE" because somebody would *inevitably* say ".. uh so, I guess there's no more core, huh? What a ripoff".

 

SO i make a point, when I am confident that we will have more reveals, of saying that I know there are more reveals.

 

That you people want to interpret that as "oh, this isn't the capstone" is on you people.

 

For that matter, all this gnashing of teeth over what is and isn't a "capstone" - where does this obsession come from? We have 5 goals we saved for the end, that were our big point-of-pride-something-new-and-(for us)-revolutionary and those are what I think of as Capstones. Blacksting, Dance of Death, Barge, Argent, Treeman. 

 

 First off, Capstone is MY TERM. I made it up to describe Nethyrmaul (in Bones 1, remember that $1,000,000 was a pie-in-the-sky goal to us - I personally bet on 1.1 mil) , Kaladrax, C'thulhu, DDS2, Khanjira, Ma'alDrakar, T'Raukzul, and these 5 things. 

 

I feel like here you guys have ascribed some mythic, intrinsic quality that, honestly, never existed.

Well, he's a drawing on a piece of paper. So I cannot give you a height or width or anything. But yes, that is supposed to provide a sense of scale relative to a human-analogue miniature.

Maal was just the icing on the cake during Bones 3.  We still had a lot of reveals shown after it that were the sprinkles and candles.

I was someone who was initially a little disappointed at "not having gotten the capstone" and in hindsight, yeah, it was totally my fault. I did not mean to imply that it was in any way your fault or even your problem--just that for those of us who missed how big Argent was and didn't catch on that he was supposed to be a big sonufagun until later, that was probably the point where we looked at the update and went "There's something else big coming?! I wanna see it!" I know a handful of other folks I was talking to outside of the forums on Saturday all had the same reaction and I'm not sure I can entirely explain how we all got to the same point--some sort of bad feedback loop, possibly. Humans are weird.

 

tl:dr; trying to explain my mistakes, not yours!

      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.

      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.
