Godlike (8/8)



  1. Some people get really hung up on "realism" in D&D, but weirdly just as it relates to women and minority groups. Typical examples include: forcing female characters to have lower strength/be in a more traditional female role or persecuting characters for non-hetero relationships. Ofc, one can play a more realistic medieval game and hit those more mature themes. But such a game requires a lot of thought and discussion beforehand, "realism" shouldn't just be a thinly veiled excuse to live out your misogynistic tendencies. And for some people it might just be really unfun to play a female or LGBTQ+ character in a world in which you get constantly medievally opressed. Not all gamers are like that, most I've met were an awesome and inclusive bunch, but there are enough weird ones for all those RPG horror stories. When I listed my group as searching for additional players, I got a lot of requests particullarly from female players who either made bad experiences or had heard of enough horror stories to be vary. Official D&D books these days are quite good at representing a wide variety of skin tones and gender in their art. It's nice to see well-armored female knights or darker skinned charactes in the official art. There are also some LGBTQ+ characters in the background, like two men running a farm together and being clearly married. Women characters also come in all societal positions and not just "maiden in distress" or "wife of". I think stuff like this goes a long way in making players feel welcome. It's not about roleplaying graphic content, it's about having a normalized presence in your fantasy world and not having to feel like "freaks" or "outsiders" or constantly being reminded that "you're quite strong/clever/good at magic FOR A WOMAN".
  2. "Let's see how much fun you'll have if I knock YOU over" I had one player who was used to going to 40k events as a child with his father. He was really good at just touching the rim of the bases of painted miniatures, as he had that behaviour sharply reinforced 😄 So maybe see it as preventing future generations of miniature painters from frustrations? To stop myself from being just mean and negative: My players are really good at finding non-dangerous foods. It's mostly vegetable sticks or these toothpicks with fruit/cheese/whatever. Might be because they don't want their own papers and tablets to become greasy either, but we didn't have any food-related incidents.
  3. Personal pet peeves: - Players ramming their figure into the map to count steps, as if they're playing Mensch-ärger-dich-nicht (popular board game for all ages in Germany, with wooden gaming pieces). We've lost a few arms and weapons in that process. Ahhh, you're all adults. count your square, move there, don't hammer my miniatures down 12 times per turn. 🤬 - Knocking figures over to symbolize their death. I'm ok with the plastic speed paint figures being thrown around, stop it with they resins and metals YOU picked for your PC because they looked great. Also, battlemaps just become crowded af when some miniatures supposed to stand in one square suddenly lay across 3. - Building impromtu flight stands from stacked dice or the likes. Impressive act of dexterity, but nobody is laughing when the whole thing inevitably comes tumbling down. I even own flightstacker-things that work, but if someone just hopped or levitated or climbed for a round, we'll just use our imgatination and leave the miniature on the save ground of the battle map, thank you very much.
  4. Love that thing. Would really like another box with dwarven ruins to go with it.
  5. So, I want 6 sets (2 forest, 2 swamp, 1 giant, 1 creatures) but I do want a second set of SGs as well I think. Just more things I'd use multiples of as with the last KS. How does one go about that? I'm currently pledged for 4, just make a second account? Not familiar with Gamefound.
  6. Those Bugbears really call out to me. The Drow are nice as well. Overall, very nice and solid gaming figures (and paint jobs).
  7. I do think we're just seeing the limitations of written communication in action. Tone is very hard to convey in a forum and very easily misinterpreted, especially if you have a high variety in age ranges and nationalities. I've been quite happy with my stretch goals as I glue them together. It's a bit of a puzzle, but I like puzzles. Only critique would be that I'd like more of one monster group/theme instead of having so many different ones. Two to four of one type of monster are just not enough for my encounter building needs. That's why I love their City Watch though: plenty of cohesive figures, both male and female, in different poses for my games. Even if the players decide to assault members of the guard in the middle of a market and get tons of back-up thrown at them - again. 😄
  8. The ones I've built so far don't need a lot of cleaning up. Some mold lines, sure, but those scrape right off with the back of a scalpel. So far I didn't have any in unfortunate places like faces. A lot of the miniatures need a lot of glueing though.
  9. I got my order last week. I had a dragon lair pledge with 6 old dragons and an additional Ghost Dragon as my 7th. Got the first 6 with rapid delivery (they're all build up and ready to be painted) but got those 6 again. Possibly bc the dragon lair Add On wasn't marked as shipped bc I was still missing the 7th? Contacted customer support, am allowed to keep them. Anyway, everything is looking really nice, human sized minis are small but acceptable. Love my Lava and Goo Caves.
  10. That's more like it! Though to me the Gamefound page still seems to imply there is a map in the sets. Biggest drop of price for the creature pack ofc, who apparently didn't even have a map to lose. For 99 $ that was rather pricy, for half that it's an auto include for me.
  11. The number of sets I'd get would definetly increase if I could get them without the map. I'm pretty heavily invested in the Loke Map Books, and I'd like to use the terrain with all kinds of maps, not just their battlemat. Looking forward to seeing the Land of the Giants set, could be super interesting and unique. Woods and swamp are definetly common in most RPGs and would see a lot of use based on that, but people might have terrain for that already.
  12. I really like that we will be able to prepay VAT and duties in check out. Makes stuff a lot easier and quicker.
  13. They added the word "elven" my weakness. I really like what I own of their dungeon terrain. It might not be as pretty as some of the other stuff around, but it is super useable and very affordable.
  14. Both these sets look rather useful, especially the Long Road for those impromptu travelling or camping encounters. On the dungeon side I've rarely used the maps with lots of tiny rooms pre-drawn. If I need something like this I'll draw it myself, but mostly we end up fighting in bigger rooms. But maybe the encounter descrition hand inspiration here. The Rooms book on the other hand looks useful with the banquet scene.
  15. Ended up backing this. I have the stuff from Infinite Dimensions as well, but my current campaign is set in a harbor town. Plus the Bones V ship needs a home too I guess. Just need to figure out how to store those things.
