  1. The upgrade table was never balanced and was never even legal for anything remotely official. And I'm pretty sure reaper isn't going to share the point calculator.

     

    I'm not sure I follow: why would it hurt Reaper if they shared their point calculator, if one exists? Wouldn't it be to their benefit to make it easier for players to create their own characters, or magic items, for non-official games?

    Trust me, one exists. I wrote it. It's over 1000 lines of PHP code. Nearly every SA point cost is calculated based on everything about the model. It is the main proprietary thing about RAGE, and will not be shared, sorry.

     

    Aahhh..I've been away from the boards for a few years; This was probably addressed during my absence... I wasn't aware it was proprietary. You guys are always so nice I forget sometimes that you have a company to run :)

  2. just to be clear is it the generic cards people miss or the customization table?

     

    I know for me it would be the customization table, although seeing a "stripped down" version of the stat line you wanted to create was useful to gauge how over/underpowered you built your custom card.

  3. Any status? I am looking forward to these...

     

    Giddoen :rolleyes:

     

    Progress remains constant. Still on target for next weekend release.

     

    Great! I just started getting into Warlord, and the customization is what got me interested in it. Thanks for all of your hard work!

  4. Wow! The website's lookin' good, the dungeon looked awesome, and that town table!!!! Wow!

     

    Something that I noticed: In your pictures, the dungeon looks like its floating about a half an inch above the table...Am I crazy or are the dungeon pieces sitting on something?

     

    Anyways, like I said, the site looks great. Keep up the good work!

  5. And most of the halfling minis from Reaper just look too much like halflings and not gnomish to me.  But we can all wing it anyway.   I'm often confused on what a proper halfling should look like anyway.  I always pictured them to be young, chubby cheeked, gleeful look'n ppl with dimples or freckles.  

     

    Now D&D is trying to make them look more like small thin ppl?  Sure, our 15mm minis would fit the bill.  But what about those little chubby ones?  Possible Gnomes??????

    *shrug*

    I think they tried to make the halflings more like Dragonlance's kender race, and the gnomes more like hobbits.

     

    I think they're asking too much from a fantasy lovers sensibilities. When I see the word "Halfling", I think what you think: Hobbit.

  6. OK, I've got the PHB in front of me:

    Gnomes are 3-3.5" high

    Halflings are 3" high.

     

    I've always thought gnomes were bigger than halflings. Or maybe it was just those big pointy red hats? :laugh:

    P.S: I've got a Dwarven Wizard character on the the backburner purely based on that mini! If he really comes with the pug familiar, that little hunk of lead is mine!

  7. Well, you could walk into a DIY store, like Home Mart or Home Depot, and ask in the plumbing supplies section. Odds are, you will find the material at a better price. I get mine at Wal Mart, so, it is not really that hard to find.

    Kneadatite is *way* better than the stuff at Wal-Mart, In my opinion. Kneadatite is not as sticky and isn't as grainy as the plumbing stuff. But Wal-Mart stuff it is cheaper, and if you're just filling gaps it does just fine and will last ya forever.

  8. Thats kinda nutty, but a fanged toothed white rabbit , now thats something. :p

    Something else I thought would be cool was Dungeon traps, and gel-like creatures.

    There's a long-standing gamer's joke that unscrupulous game store owners would take 2 small $2 figures that don't sell, melt them, and try and resell them at as one large $6 "Green Slime" mini.  :)

     

    That dungeon traps thing would be pretty cool.

    P.S: Does Reaper sell a "mimic"? that would be neat.

  9. is strongbad's creator here in portland? or is there just a wonderful artist w/ too much time on his/her/hir hands lurkin' at my favorite restaurant?

    I believe the Brothers Chaps are located down south somewhere...Georgia, maybe?

     

    And they could probably sell them, but the key would be to market them on the Homestar Runner website, not the Reaper site.

     

    You know, a pewter Trogdor keychain would probably sell great...hmmm...

  10. I'd buy a Trogdor Mini!

     

    I don't know if I'd buy a full size 50 dollar Trogdor mini, but I might buy a smaller one.

     

    But, if you got the time, a Dremel, and some green stuff, hows about this: Start off with a Nachtluft mini (#02069), cut off his arms, and put Blorg Mudstump's (#2579) arm in the middle of his back.

    *Note: This was a dramatization. No Reaper miniatures were harmed in this post.

  11. In the past 6-10 months, Reaper has been coming out with a lot of minis on my wish list. Like the Townsfolk 4 pack, which has 3 bandits and a few sacks of loot. I mean, can you remember the last time you were playing a fantasy RPG campaign and weren't attacked by bandits? It drove me nuts trying to find something like that.

     

    I think the only thing I can think of on my wish list is a Kyton mini.

    They have complete control over those chains, and I think it could make for a really cool and dynamic mini.
