Awesome!

 

The two new Tengu sculpts look awesome. It may not be much longer before the core set pulls me in.

I own Tre's Oni mini in resin, and it is a wonderful sculpt too.

 

Kyphrixis has a very interesting, lizard-like look to it. I wonder how big it is.

I couldn´t find the resin mini of the Oni, can you direct me to a link?

It was available at ReaperCon 2014. I don't think it ever made it to release.

 

Here's a link to a painted one over in the craft forum.

I recognized Tre's style, but couldn't find it in Reaper's store. (not in giant/oni/asian/ogre)

 

So I wondered if it was a new sculpt or not because it looked so darn familiar.

Bryan (or anyone that knows), is there a final countdown thing happening at HQ for this KS?  I enjoyed coming out to the KS II one with my daughter and hanging out a bit so was hoping it would happen again and maybe I just missed you guys mentioning it.

Yes there will be. I don't know details though

Story:

 

 

I wrote out the opening to the Story for the maps. 

This story Ends at precisely the moment the first KS map begins.

 

It's awful, being that I am not a great writer, but I had fun and I hope you do too.

 

 

THE SEARCH FOR MR. BONES

It had been a long night. As the sun began to rise to the east, across the Forlorn Mountains at the edge of the world, Mrs. Bones locked the front door to the manor and hung her golden sword over the mantle. Mr. Bones propped his scythe against the wall and kicked off his boots. The graveyard was silent now, and the ferry service was closed for the day. After sunset the spirits would need to be quieted again and Mrs. Bones would go on patrol, and Mr. Bones would go to work for Mr. Charon but for now, they could rest in each other’s arms.

 

Mr. Bones pulled the curtain closed just as the first rays of the morning sun hit the opposite wall, and he crawled into bed beside his beloved Ulna. Dim, warm light from the gaps in the drapes filled the room as they drifted off to sleep, cold beneath their scarlet covers. The lights in their eyes dimmed, and the only sounds to be heard were the occasional rattle of their gentle breathing. Hours passed.

 

A dark shadow passed over the bed, blotting out all light. A great din erupted as the great window shattered, the glass ripping the heavy scarlet damask curtains into tatters. Shards of glass and crimson cloth filled the air and the shadow covered the bed in darkness that was palpable, not just blocking the light but absorbing it. Ulna jumped up, searching the chaos to find her husband, but she could see nothing in the blackness, feeling only the glass against her cheekbones and something soft drifting through the air.

 

The shadow receded and as light returned Ulna tried to make sense of the scene. Glass was everywhere, mixed with bright red streaks, and tufts of fluff floated through the air. The sun bathed the room in intense hot light, overwhelming her. The bed was ripped asunder. Giant rends streaked through the black-swan-down filled mattress, black streaks through rivers of crimson.

 

What she could not see was her dear Vomer. Her eyes flared red as she reached into her bed stand to grab a strength potion. Taking a quick second to grab her cloak to protect her from the hateful sun and a small pack, she ran down the hall to follow the trail of the thing that stole her husband. She knew she’d need her weapons, so she couldn’t leap foolishly out the window after them. She ran down the hall, emerging into a disused chamber with empty bookshelves and discarded bones - they’d always wanted to make a child, but their careers kept them both pretty busy.

 

An armored warrior burst through the doorway, brandishing a laughably small knife. For over two centuries Ulna had patrolled the cemetery at World’s Edge, this human warrior was no match. Ulna stopped, adjusted her cloak, and waved the soldier on. He paused briefly, not expecting his target to be so calm, but seeing she was unarmed, he grew emboldened. He lunged towards her, thrusting his dagger towards her grinning face. She extended her left leg, sweeping his ankle out from under him. As he hit the ground, she dropped, planting her knee across the back of his neck. She reached out and twisted the knife from his hand, flipped it across her palm, and thrust it into his back.

 

He did not scream or twitch. His head twisted around, and as he spoke his lips and eyes turned black. “You’ll never defeat us all. You will fall before us, and your power will be ours. Vomer Bones is already lost. You have already lost.†The words dissolved into unintelligible burbles and bubbles as the soldier dissolved into a gooey pool of black. That was no human, but whatever it was was the same dark shadow-stuff that had invaded their room and stolen her husband.

 

Standing, Mrs. Bones held the new dagger before her, straightened her shirt, and blew her bangs out of her eyes. The soldier could not have been more wrong. She would not lose...

All good. I just needed to know if I should keep that day open for a visit to HQ so I can celebrate with you guys again.

Small request for Talae/David: Would it be possible to have one more average calculation added? Averages based on the last 24 hour period.

 

I love seeing the "avg hours until funded" and such, but as you state yourself, the wee hours of the day are a little skewed. And not just that, certain time frames will be more susceptible to an increase/decrease in backers or funds. I think, being not as mathemagically endowed, that the last 24 hour window would produce a good number.

Kicktraq is the tool you're looking for.

 

It gives us daily results and averages. Though the extrapolated trends don't really work for the way Reaper plans the end of the pledge period.

I have a question - How will the bones from the kickstarter be packaged? Will they be in packaging like current Bones are sold in stores? The reason I ask is because I like to save the tops of the packages, with the names and numbers, so that later I know what I've got.

Unless there is a major change -- which seems unlikely -- the Bones from this KS project will generally not be packaged like in stores (i.e., they will not be in blisters). Some special add-ons -- climactic things like Dragons Don't Share from Bones II -- might come in their own boxes. Mostly, however, fuflillment of Bones from a KS just has the minis in plastic baggies, without labels.

In the past two Kickstarters most of the individual Bones were packed in plastic bags. The sets (like core, and StoneSkull) get boxed up with the bagged minis packed into a cardboard box. The really big stuff like DDSII and Khanjira were actually packaged in retail-like shipping.

 

I expect that Bones III will be similar. I would not expect blister packaging, which takes up a huge amount of time and space.
