Brothers Forged Campaign Supplies is a small business formed from the fellowship of an adventuring party. We have collectively been playing Dungeons & Dragons since the '80s. Now, with our diverse skill set, and months of building and testing prototypes we are prepared to create and launch this project.
Two of the most exciting words to hear (or speak) in an adventure. But tracking initiative can be a major distraction from the action unfolding. Brothers Forged have tried many methods to keep players immersed during this process. None to our satisfaction. Until now.
The world is untamed and wild regions abound. Monsters could be hiding around every corner, and sometimes they show themselves when you least expect it. And when they join combat in a later round, adding them to your initiative tracker can be a distraction from the gaming experience. When they are killed, removing them from the tracker is yet another interruption. Finally there is an easy way to add and remove creatures and enemies quickly and easily. With handcrafted wooden dry-erase compatible nameplates - that affix themselves to the tracker via the power of magnetism - it's incredibly easy to create space and shuffle the initiative order about while maintaining the immersion that makes Tabletop Role Playing Games (TTRPGs) so much fun.
Behold, the power of magnetism! (actual tracker not self-assembling) The Legendary Rod of Initiative has vastly improved our gaming experience and now we want it to improve yours as well!
How We're Going to Make It Happen
Like a wizard preparing spell components for conjuration in a later battle, we have been building, testing, and revising the Legendary Rod of Initiative, at last conjuring it into creation in its current incantation. We have searched the shops of many towns and villages to gather all of the components and sourced the raw materials needed to scale production in order to deliver the Legendary Rod to the gaming community at large. The forge has been ignited, and the Brothers are ready to begin production.
Right now, we need your help raising the gems, gold and silver coins needed to begin manufacturing. The funds raised by this campaign will be used to purchase the necessary components, keep the forge lit, manufacture, and ultimately deliver the Legendary Rod of Initiative across the realms!
An original PDF adventure created by Brothers Forged. Delve into the lair of a unique dragon that possesses the power of magnetism and attempt to recover the Legendary Rod of Initiative - a powerful magickal artifact.
Includes maps, pre-generated characters, and the necessary information to GM and play the epic adventure. Based on 5e ruleset, recommended for 4-5 players, levels 5-10.
Take your quest to new heights and play your character with more confidence! Track your initiative with a custom nameplate laser etched with your character's name (or a monster, or NPC, or BBEG, or your favourite animal companion's name). Built with the same awesome magnetic force that makes your party's Legendary Rod of Initiative so magickal. Up to two lines of text, 10-12 character limit per line.
Actual nameplates will vary from those shown above. A custom designed limited edition t-shirt featuring your choice from the evil dragon trifecta - red dragon, green dragon or blue dragon.
Close-up of dragon artwork. All shirts will be black in color, with various sizes available. If your pledge includes this reward let us know your size and dragon colour in the Backer Survey after the campaign.

(forgive me, very new to the forums)
It's been awhile since I've painted a plain ol' character miniature. I spent the better part of today working on her and I’m overall pleased with how she came out. I really want to double my skill level by the time Bones V is delivered and I’m proud of my progress! Slowly but surely figuring out how to do faces, this one looks pretty okay, though her right eye is funky.
Since this is my first form post, the picture is her next to my first miniature! It's about four years old and I keep it around the rest of my collection in a place of honor
If anybody here loves cavern terrain and missed DF's first cavern KS KS2, this spring/summer around June DF will have KS6. The theme of KS6 will be Return to the Caverns and should be great fun for those who took part in KS2 or those who are new to DF.
DF had this to say and showed the below teaser pics
We're doing for Caverns what Dungeon of Doom did for Dungeons. A whole new batch of fun pieces to enhance your existing collection, but also completely stand-alone.
Some of the key features:
New Core Shapes (diagonal wall, convex curves, 1" pieces, etc)
Elevation (with stuff that's impossible on graph paper...)
Negative Space pieces (and new Terrain Trays)
Flashy Pieces (Magnets & LEDs)
Large pieces (4x4 and larger)
By Knight of the Dinner Table
This looks like a very interesting board game with lots of new, fresh ideas and cool artwork (and nice minis - there is even a pledge level for just the minis: around 15 of them for $20 plus shipping):
