“Not all those who wander are lost.â€


― J.R.R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring

Hello :) Welcome to my Fourth Kickstarter known as "Meanders": giant modular boards strewn with wandering paths that fit together with other similar-themed Meander. This Kickstarter is aimed at that special need for terrain between quests. A place for all of the stuff that happens in the beloved - but oft overlooked - mid-way point: shortly after departure from the tavern and just before the arrival at the dragon-filled mountain range. 


What happens between setting off and finally arriving is perhaps the most important aspect of RPG to capture the imagination, for the Journey from Here to There represents endless possibility for stories to evolve, a mystical place for stumbling upon new side-quests, sudden action, the excitement of exploration and the threat of random encounters where anything can happen and often does.


Yet while they are particularly intended for areas after leaving the tavern and before reaching the location of major quests - allowing players to wander the wilderness - they also serve up a number of classic RPG tropes for situating major quests such as: a Desert Shipwreck or Temple Ruins, Woodland Altar or Forest Pond, Alpine Cemetery or Jungle Swingbridge. Each board has a mixture of narrow and wide paths with multiple clearings for hiding treasure chests, trapdoors, entrances to your dungeons or your custom secrets and strategic terrain design for setting up ambushes, wandering monster or NPC encounters and even labyrinths. Need an endless desert? Enchanted forest that won't let them leave? Lost in the snow? Meanders can take care of it for you. 


Meanders provide instant and massive adventure vistas for characters to wander through a variety of classic (and not-so-classic) tropes: from sprawling forest and steaming jungle, miles of snow or near-endless desert - and how big you make the playground is up to you. Simply join another board or boards of the same or different theme to your Meander and it will line up all of the paths, doubling, trebling or quadrupling the size of the Meander. Create a gigantic sprawling landscape just waiting to be populated with NPC's, monsters, treasure and Meanders provides enough caverns, clearings and paths to lead almost anywhere...

Reaper Minis are the best goddamn minis.

 

Hello :) I'm creating large specialized highly-detailed terrain boards called 'Meanders' that are designed to fit with one another left to right, top to bottom, to generate endless sprawling pathways for RPG adventures in a variety of terrains inc Forest, Jungle, Desert, Snow, City, Village, Castle, Treetops and more - including Sci-fi with Planet Surfaces, Deep Space, a Space Hulk and terrain suitable for Tyrannids, Warhammer 40k, Frostgrave and anything else backers can agree upon.

 

The sets are particularly intended for areas after leaving the tavern/spaceport/craft and before reaching the location of major quests - allowing players to wander the wilderness but also serve up a number of classic RPG tropes for situating major quests.They measure 27x18" each and allow you to change large sections of terrain around in seconds (and are modifiable in size) without changing many fiddly smaller tiles and still allow you to get a variety of different layouts per set.

 

They are available digitally as any four for $8 AUD in the Sampler Pack, or $25 AUD for thirty-two (32) core designs, and in a variety of other digital and printed options as well. They can be gridded or non-gridded with a variety of options available there. Also the printed boards are professionally printed, dry/wet erasable and the surface is coated with a tough scuff/soiling/liquid resistant layer. 

 

This will be my 4th Kickstarter on the back of three successful ones trying to bring innovative products to the RPG community. Thanks for your time, kind regards, Kris McDermott

Not so sure if using the word "Tyranid" is going to go un-C&D's by that certain company who likes to aggressively trademark all their names.

      Risks and challenges
      TAG, are a recognized miniature manufacturer of long standing, In the past 18 years once we commit to a Project, we always complete.
      As such we don't envisage any massive issue with this small ( 6 packs) Kickstarter.
      We have the Original models moulded, master-cast, and in pre-production, ready to move to full production, if and when, full Funding takes place.
      We have our own professional Mail Order facilities, and have completed on over a dozen Kickstarters, for TAG, and for many other small scale mini retailers here in the UK.
      As always, I'm sure there are a few ways we could cluck this up, but we promise that we'll work really hard, to make this a success, and if we don't you can give us a 'basting' on social media.

      The Grand Duchy of Reme awaits!
      Starting in 2002 Necromancer Games began populating its Lost Lands campaign setting one adventure at a time. The Grand Duchy of Reme is the region home to classic adventures released by Necromancer Games for D20/3.x and Frog God Games for Pathfinder, Swords & Wizardry and Fifth Edition. 
      More than 10 adventures have brought life to the Grand Duchy of Reme. The Lost Lands Campaign Sourcebook funded in January is expected to be over 700 pages and all of them are full of information. By necessity each region was described broadly, but there are still a wealth of history, politics and other details to be explored, experience and expanded in the Grand Duchy of Reme. 
      The Grand Duchy of Reme is a system neutral hardcover volume designed to be useful for campaigns independent of system preference. Specific details that affect the characters in the Lost Lands there are System Encounter Books. These companion volumes are softcover (or PDF), that contain reference stats for use with the Region book along with detailed encounter tables for the region.
      Additionally, 3 classic adventures previously unavailable for Pathfinder, Swords & Wizardry, and Fifth Edition are back. These are offered as either softcover add-ons in backerkit or as free stretch goals in PDF (see reward sidebar).
      Mock-up of Grand Duchy of Reme. Final release will differ slightly The city of Reme itself is ancient, with world-spanning trade — the eternal citadel of the Loreclans, where the ashes of legendary barbarian kings reside. This land lies near the slow collapse of the nearby Empire of Foere, and the rise of Bard’s Gate to the East. The Rhemish watch these events with cold eyes rather than concern, for they live in vast regions that devour invaders. Their land is eternal; their people can be forced back to the plains, but in the plains they can abide for as long as need be. They are — as a people — the ultimate hunters. The fall of Foere is like the fall of an antelope upon the plains; the rise of Bard’s Gate is little more than the stepping-up of jackals before the body. The Grand Duchy of Reme simply waits and watches — for Reme is the dwelling-place of the world’s wolves.
      Reme is a unique fantasy civilization whose structure is determined by the one overriding fact of its geography — the country is a vast, grassland plain. The realm is dominated by the culture of the ancient Loreclans: the urbanized and settled ones, and the nomadic clans of the interior. The Loreclans owe a certain fealty to the Dukes of Reme, who are the final arbiters of the ancient law of the plains, but between the Loreclans and the Dukes there are also the mysterious Pashtars: arbiters, judges, and mediators who roam the plains where their service takes them.
      The city of Reme, of course, is one of the wonders of the world of the Lost Lands, home of powerful spell-casters and perhaps the greatest mercantile and war fleets of the Crescent Sea. It is also, however, steeped in the culture of the vast plains of the interior. It is a place where assumptions are dangerous, for it is no standard fantasy environment — it is a culture that will be entirely new and foreign to your players, a place to truly explore as well as adventure.
