Bones Kickstarter #3 Discussion

Recommended Posts

There's usually a little surge around 6-8 PM, of folks that work, but cannot access KS at work, but most of the time, it is most active during US working hours.  And then it goes quiet until Europe wakes up and goes to work.

Numbers Based on 1400-1500 Reaper time today:

Total to Next Goal - $30,703

Current Average Pledge - $110.30

New Backers This Hour - 17

Gain in last Hour - $2,683

Total Gain Today - $34,008

Average Hourly Gain Today - $2,267

 

 

If the current average hourly gain maintains (accounting for a spike when people get off work today and then a drop this evening averaging out), then we will hit the $1m mark at 5am. Due to it being a Friday night and the weekends being slow typically, I will guess a few hours later than that.

Did the other bones KS spike on weekends?

Quite the opposite. Weekend days are the slowest of the project.

 

Weekend One is the worst, because it's less attractive to join than it will be by weekend 2 or 3. I won't be surprised to see it slow dramatically over the next 48 hours. Spent time today moving goals around to drum up excitement, moved one in particular that I'm looking forward to seeing.

Lochar, you know I can't answer that.  It is the next goal post-$1M though, so you'll find out pretty soon.

A) You didn't confirm or deny it though, so ha!

 

B) $28,786 to go until I know for sure.

 

B.1) Dammit, not even I'm that crazy to pony up that much money to find out what it is a few hours earlier.

I assumed that means it's the next revealed goal post 1M.

I meant the first thing we'll be revealing. Obviously the Lycans are the *first* post $1M goal... 

Hmm.   I don't know.   That's a pretty big room, and I can see plenty of spots for something to ambush Mrs. Bones before she can deal with those pesky lycanthropes...  :ph34r:

I like the Henge, but I wonder about the viability of more generic terrain/scenery elements in Bones.  Stuff like fences, hedges, boxes and crates, that could be used in a lot of settings.  I know there are companies that sell terrain, but they aren't Reaper, and it seems like Bonesium would be a perfect low cost option for a bunch of that stuff.

 

I did two sizes of crates, two sizes of barrels, sacks, jars, a table, a bench, and a bookcase for the Bones II KS.  They either are available now at retail or will be soon.

 

I love the crates and barrels. I didn't think I would care, and I didn't get the other dungeon dressing that wasn't in the core (like the bookcase and what-not), but having gotten them and painted them in a handful of minutes, I really like them. I'm looking forward to seeing more on shelves, because I'd love to be able to populate a warehouse encounter with actual crates and stuff. It'd be super awesome.

So Bryan, is there a room with all the info on walls and laid out that you move around or is it done with Visio?

 

I only ask because I may want to make a trip to HQ for a purchase and then hangout in a broom closet until around 2AM tonight. :P  Yeah...I am not very good with surprises. Just take my money now and tell me everything.

I've been waiting for those for aaaaaaages!! ^_^ I wanted to buy a whole PILE of bookcases at ReaperCon, but they were all sold out by the time I made it over to Reaper's booth.  :down: I did get several table/bench combos, though. ::D:

 

Oh wow, Bryan is giving out teasers for the next stretch goal, looks like. These need to be documented! For Science! *jumps into comments*

 

Huzzah!

      From Bones 3: Gug

      "It was a paw, fully two feet and a half across, and equipped with formidable talons. After it came another paw, and after that a great black-furred arm to which both of the paws were attached by short forearms. Then two pink eyes shone, and the head of the awakened gug sentry, large as a barrel, wabbled into view. The eyes jutted two inches from each side, shaded by bony protuberances overgrown with coarse hairs. But the head was chiefly terrible because of the mouth. That mouth had great yellow fangs and ran from the top to the bottom of the head, opening vertically instead of horizontally."

      From Bones 3, the Werearmadillo

      Obviously, lycanthropy has spread too far...and this is a reminder that Reaper are from Texas, where armadillos are native and as I understand it, seen as pests. I would really like to know how the sales figures for this model compares to other lycanthropes.

      I have a series of vignette's I'm planning that all feature ogres in amusing scenes with townsfolk. The first of this series is here.
      With this one I imagined the young milk maid is taking her boyfriend home to meet the parents for the first time. The boyfriend, wanting to put on a good first impression has worn his best striped collar and matching belt, as well as brought his best skulls.
      He's a bit nervous so she's trying to reassure him. "Don't worry... Mom is going to love you."
      She doesn't say anything about dad, though...
      Any critique and criticism is always welcome.
