  1. Who wants 340 pages of 1000+ free encounters? Sure, it's a PDF, but you can print out what pages you want, rather than lug around another book. Dungeon, town and tavern, and wilderness encounters. A hardback dead tree version is available as an add-on (£22) or as part of the higher pledge levels (£100 and £120). Or if you live digitally, it's part of the £8 pledge, with a ridiculous amount of virtual content. Physical product will be available retail, so, if you're not sure, pick this pledge level!
  2. My guess is that they're not going to repeat that experience again, because, with Asmodee taking over things, they're not going to have a warehouse (or Time Machine) any more. Both were mess, but it looks like CMON's selling its excess inventory to Miniature Market (last seen with the HATE sale, but MM has been selling Wrath of Kings stock for years). That said, look at the comments for shipping issues. Night of the Living Dead (?) had French games sent to American backers (or something). CMON refunds to Massive Darkness 2 backers (because of unexpected VAT charges) are taking 2-3 weeks to process (?). CMON's sheer number of backers means you'll see more customer service issues, and that still means they need to improve customer service.
  3. You can also see if the books are available retail. Lower shipping costs if you hit free shipping. I highly recommend the 2x2 double-sided Battle Board for the price.
  4. Sounds good, Adrift! Lobby in the latest update comments for a forest with treetops instead of stumps : https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/gamingbooks/the-wilderness-books-of-modular-maps-for-tabletop-roleplay/posts/3099109?ref=ksr_email_backer_project_update_registered_users £175k - The plain grids at the start of each book are replaced with a peril filled Wilderness Map!
  5. Yeah, the "stumps" remind me too much of the logging days in the US. I expect the KS to hit the free Wilderness Scenery decal pack SG. Cover up those naked trees with some foliage! Or just drown them under a lake. You get one for *each* set in your pledge. So Double Wilderness and Wilderness Master will get two sets of decals!
  6. 48-hour free PDF Remember that with two books, you can place the books side-by-side differently to create new playing areas -- and will get twice the clings! A second "Little Book" is a good choice, since it's only $10 and adds to the variety of maps you can make with this and previous map books. Combat Twist 150-card add-on is $30. Not entirely sure about it, especially since Loke's going to toss in a 100+ Encounter PDF free later on. Loke also has a free 5e adventure in most pledge levels. I've backed their previous two book KS and their customer service is great. This project is a little larger, with the card-add on, GM screen, hardback book, and wooden die. Loke Battle Mat accessories are also available retail, and I expect you should be able to get these items retail as well. The KS is *very* good with the digital freebies. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/gamingbooks/the-wilderness-books-of-modular-maps-for-tabletop-roleplay?ref=section-homepage-view-more-recommendations-p1
  7. I backed their original Mythic Battles: Pantheon. Good miniatures. IIRC, Mythic Battles: Pantheon core sets in the KS, and possibly some expansions in the PM. Expansion reprints were difficult because printer required a minimum number, and Monolith wasn't sure how many sets backers would want. Also, let me know how their fulfilment has been going. (Not to be confused with their former partner, Mythic games.) More discussion on Dakka : https://www.dakkadakka.com/dakkaforum/posts/list/792719.page#11049486
  8. KS : https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/cmon/zombicide-undead-or-alive/ Safest thing is to pledge $1, wait for the Pledge Manager, check shipping, VAT, and other charges, then wait for the base game at half the KS plus shipping price during a holiday sale.
  9. Loke BattleMats is running a campaign for their third "Set of 2 spiral-bound Battle Map Books for RPG", after Dungeons and Town and Taverns. Loke has finished shipping their previous KS, and has fulfilled all six of their previous KS. The Wilderness Battle Map Books follow the same format as their previous two. Loke BattleMats will also have digital maps for VTT at a low price, including freebies. Previous SG's included free vinyl cling sets (reusable stickers) and Little Book (supplementary maps). I have a review of their Town and Taverns Battle Map Books on RPG.net, as well as some other of their maps, Dungeon Little Book, and vinyl clings. https://www.rpg.net/reviews/search-review.phtml?productCompany=Loke+&orderby=category&showinfo=publisher Notification link : https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/gamingbooks/the-wilderness-books-of-modular-maps-for-tabletop-roleplay
  10. I have the smallest Ghoul pledge, and picked up the 2' x 2' Loke Battle Board, which has a dungeon on one side, and wilderness on the other. I played around with "negative space" to make corridors from the Battle Board, and sub-assemblies of the Rampage tiles. You can see how I took the five sub-assemblies in the first picture to make three rooms in the second. Since the sub-assemblies were clipped together, I only had to slide the sections on the Battle Board, rather than reposition and move any individual game pieces. Just for completeness, I set up a wilderness encounter at a inn or something, and was able to make two good-sized "buildings" from the pledge. So, while you're not going to make an entire dungeon with this pledge, it looks like enough for basic rooms for an encounter with a battle board or game mat. Partial assembly beforehand will save time before setup. I use Good Earth Tea herbal tea boxes to store sub-assembly of the pieces, such as two floor tiles clipped together.
  11. Shipping is included in most pledges (USA, Canada, United Kingdom, EU, and Australia). Others add $7 CAD. I figure I'll use Mythroll for wilderness encounters and Ettinstone for dungeon ones! (I'm also getting sick and tired of all these miniatures and terrain I have to paint... :P
  12. No painting... all magnets... 3x3 tiles. Creators have a few manufacturing KS under their belt, although magnetic tiles seem to be a new thing. Prices include shipping to most areas. Anyway, watch the videos. The houses look a little clunky, but take a look at that tower in the last seconds of the intro video. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/mythroll/magnetiles-quick-build-terrain-system-mythroll-armory?ref=user_menu
  13. Shipping gets even more rapid: We have planned shipping of Second Edition items for August of 2021. Well, things got changed and we are planning to start shipping late February/early March 2021. Yes, 5 months earlier than planned.
  14. Sorry to hear that. California's been hit hard by CoVid, resulting in all sorts of disruptions for small companies. Hope it gets taken care of soon!
