Reaper Bones 3: Post-Kickstarter Discussion

Recommended Posts

On June first, we will be locking down the pledge manager, meaning that no new items or orders can be added to your rewards. If you have not locked anything in by June first, we will not be able to ship you your rewards with the rest of the backers

Seems pretty straight forward to me.


Thank you Reaper!  Can't wait for Wave 1!

This many people and someone is going to complain no matter what happens. I am certain that people have been emailing in and posting in the comments section with complaints about all sorts of rediculous things since the Kickstarter started. I am sure people would complain if the PM was left open an extra day/week/whatever. People in large groups can be rather silly.

I always say that if I were to build a little shack in my neighbourhood where I could sit there and hand out $20 bills to everyone who passed by, I'd get complaints from some people that it should be in the form of 4 $5 bills instead, and complaints from others that the shack doesn't fit with the aesthetic of the neighbourhood, and a huge volume of complaints from locals that it was causing too much traffic, and probably a dozen other complaints I can't even imagine.

Reaper has been very nearly begging people to lock in at least part of their pledges for months. They also made it incredibly easy to add items to your pledge incrementally over time through the manager, spending bits of your pledge credit, or adding funds as you go. The fact that so many people persist in complaining that they screwed it up at the end never ceases to amaze me.


I mean... if you want to be able to arbitrarily buy any Bones model you want, at any time into the indefinite future, isn't that what the retail store is for!?


I feel bad for the Reaper crew, carefully, and painstakingly composing instructions for their backers, and sending it out every which way they can, knowing they will still get buried under complaints about it being a surprise.  :down:

Looks like Reaper caved. If you messed up, get to the pledge manager now.

::o: Wow. So much for the end of my wistful wembling over a few extra bits.


That was pretty decent of them, anyhow.

In disbelief of the PM being reopened, I logged into it. It had everything listed as double my actual order. FREAKED ME OUT!


Logging out and back in again fixed it.


I figured that I should mention this to others in case it was not an isolated incident.

Same for me, although logging out didn't fix it. Not that I'm intending to order any more stuff

Well. I still don't get to add anything. I even logged out, then back in. Still won't let me add anything.

And no, I haven't been complaining to Reaper.....it's not their fault I didn't have any money in my accounts until after it was closed. :blush::down:


EDIT: My "Order more stuff" page is exactly the same as my "Completed Orders" page.

Official Response:


Due to popular demand, we are reopening the Pledge Manager for a brief window.

It will be closing on Friday June 3rd at 11:59 PM CST (midnight). This is the moment when it stops being Friday and changes to Saturday.

      Hi, we're Crow Land Publishing, and here's our first book, Wickerpunk. A supplement book for Dungeons and Dragons 5th Edition, with application for all fantasy and horror games, such as Pathfinder, Call Of Cthulhu and even superhero games, like Champions. It will be 275 pages.
      Folk horror – horror and supernatural fiction that relies on elements of the past, folklore, superstition, the dreadful majesty of nature, the darkest urges of old religion. And old gods. Where the landscape itself is a symbol of fear and dark majesty. 

Heroic fantasy – a dream of blades and magic, a dream of defiance of the dark powers of the world, where we can be our truest ideals of our self. 

And when these genres collide – we have Wickerpunk.  A genre in which the ancient and natural world of the Wyld meets the imperialist world of Industry.
      If you like film such as Gawain and the Green Knight, Dragonslayer and The VVitch, you'll like our book.
      If you like games such as Maiden of Sker, Greedfall, and Hellblade, you’ll like our book. 

If you like anime such as Princess Mononoke, The Ancient Magus’ Bride and Faery Gone, you’ll like our book.
      If you like TV shows such as The Witcher, Game of Thrones, (especially the White Walkers stuff!) and the classic 1980s Robin of Sherwood, you’ll like our book. 
      If you like novels such as The Mists of Avalon, The Dark Is Rising and The Broken Sword, you’ll like our book. 
      Wickerpunk is a sourcebook that instructs GMs and players alike on what wickerpunk looks like in a game of D&D or any fantasy roleplaying game.

      We have a small and short campaign live at Kickstarter.
      As the clunky title suggests, It's about a big virus, his small buddy and some masked adventurers.
      The all in level is 50 USD (60 Canadian) + postage
      Thanks for having a look!

      I barely received my last campaign pledge from Midlam that already it has something that caught my interest.
      Sisters of the Kraken Cult. The female counterparts of the previous "Onslaught of the Cult of the Kraken Lord" and "Cultists of the Kraken Lord". (I now have some regret of not getting it)

      What's also interesting is the optional add-on of fish folk.

      Brinewind is going to have some interesting neighbors.

      After the estate of one Fomo Barrowblight (who many moons ago, and with heavily laden bags, had said he was just off for a morning walk, never to return) was sold at auction, there came to light a strange scroll that appeared to be a map of the final resting place of a lost tribe of halflings.  These cousins lived down in the scorching Southlands, amidst endless dunes that had buried whole cities and civilisations.
      The newly elected (and so still very enthusiastic) Halfling Town Council had organised an expedition to make contact with their fellow halflings, with the aim of swapping some stories and recipes, and who knows, perhaps even coming back with some interesting new cakes.
      And, after many great perils and travails, the expedition found itself in a mysterious location known as 'The Valley of the Things'.  Here, recipes in strange hieroglyphs were marked on tomb walls,  guarded jealously by High Priests and long mummified pastry chefs.  
      The expedition takes time to assuage the fears of the High Priests that they are here to steal the sacred recipes and make formal diplomatic relations.  But Fomo Barrowblight and another mysterious figure seem intent on stealing the recipe to the sacred pie and have already gleaned some of the ingredients...
      To the Mummy's Tomb!
      Introducing a series of  Eight Fantasy Miniatures in 28mm scale from a halfling expedition to the burial grounds of their cousins, in the desert southlands. 
        Halfling Town Council Five
      The latest elected Halfling Town Council, has been responsible for launching the expedition to the distant Southlands, as always, it is made up of eight different townsfolk from all walks of life.
      I've already pledged for the whole set, why haven't you?

      Echoes of Camelot: Arthurian Legends is a project that will expand our 75mm resin miniature range with new and exciting models based on the Matter of Britan, particularly around the figure of King Arthur and his Knights. We have many cool surprises prepared should you help us bring this dream to life.
      These miniatures have been sculpted and painted here at the Big Child Creatives studio with the collaboration of some of the most talented miniature artists out there. And what is more, they will be manufactured by our own talented team of resin casting experts. This allows us to monitor the process closely to ensure the best quality in the market and a timely delivery.
      We have learned a lot from our previous campaigns, and we want to put all this experience to good use, repeating everything we did right, improving upon it, and correcting our past mistakes. We invite you to join us in this journey of discovery throughout the Matter of Britain and its amazing cast of unique characters.
      This campaign is a journey of discovery, full of surprises such as custom bits to make your miniatures even more striking than they already are. Some of these kits will be Kickstarter exclusive, so those of you who choose to support us will be able to proudly show it through unique miniatures, even more full of life and character than our regular releases.
