Reaper Bones 4: Enthusiasm and Commentary Thread

Recommended Posts

I got duplicates of 

Core set x 2
Monsters x2
Dire Beasts x5
Villagers x 2
Demons & Devils x2
Snake Cultists x5
Ape Attack  x5
Sophie & Friends x7
Living Statue Spartan x2
Living Statue Amazon x2
Thunderfoot Behemoth x2
Stygian Barge x2
Argent  x2

With 2 cores and 5 extras that gives me 7 sets of ape attack, dire beasts and nagas. But considering adding 3 more each to have 10 of each figure. 

Dire beasts will make a good low level encounter set. A herd? Of boars or a bunch of crabs. Also make good summoned monsters or familiars/eidolons/ animal companions. Polymorphed bad guys. Etc.

They’re doubled up for me too.  (Along with a second pair of Ghost Pirates.) Somebody planning on visiting the Ghost Archipelago in their future? :) 

Can't imagine why you might think that has anything to do with it... 

 

:lol:

This entire Kickstarter was full of great fun for Ghost Archipelago.  Snakemen, Apes, spirits, the majority of Lost Valley...

I couldn’t agree more!   You could probably outfit a couple of nice crews and almost the complete Bestiary from this Kickstarter’s offerings.

I made the same observation to the wife the other night!  :lol:

 

Having just gotten the rules, I was obsessively going through the book looking for matches...and wowsers!  It gets even better when you go back through Bones 1-3.  So much Bones goodness.

 

I haven't decided if I will go nuts, or practice restraint.  I'm leaning toward restraint, but plans change...

So, restraint looks like what? Only 1 of everything?

Restraint sounds good...  And by that I mean practiced restraint, where you look like you will be able to restrain for about thirty seconds, THEN go on the shopping spree..

Restraint looks like black leather and a padlock.

:ph34r:

I mean, I can't spend more if I can't open my (black leather) wallet.  Right?

 

Seriously though, as I know a padlock won't work (and would make my pants sag enough to embarrass the most "belts are optional" plumber), "restraint" means not buying anything for which you don't have a definite use.  I mean, I'd LIKE Argent, but I don't have a real use for her.  I need the barge for inspiration for the stories in my head.

 

And I need another Thunderfoot because...uhhh...reasons like mumble, mumble, mumble.

The problem with trying to decide what you have a need for might change greatly over the next year... :unsure: I never thought I'd need an aboleth, but was very glad I'd gotten one in Bones 3.

You mean that something exists beyond the now?!

 

I doubt you and your spurious heresy.

 

:;,;:

 

Seriously though, I don't have anything beyond (potentially) Ghost Archipelago.  So it's just the Mythos, the stories in my head, and some FFG stuff.

Well, the obvious answer to that is that you will always need one of everything ^_^

Yes, one of everything is infinitely practical and wise.

 

 It’s when you need multiples of Every Thing that the folks from the Hoarders TV show come knocking! :lol:

I'm trying to decide if you made an (un)lucky guess, or if you've actually seen the basement.

      I haven’t backed any of Bears Heads kickstarters yet, but I’ve been tempted by everyone.
      This is the one that I give in to. 
      https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/98300108/narthoks-the-excellent
      But hurry! It’s funded with ONLY 3 DAYS LEFT!

       
      As nice as that sculpt is, it’s the sci-fi and bartender versions I’m most excited about. The stretch goals for those have been reached, but only concept drawings are available to show.

       
      I think these are great unique looking eye beasts.
      @TheAuldGrump maybe something you could use for your campaign?

      Here we are in 2015, the 40th Anniversary of Chaosium as a game company. In a few months Glorantha, Greg Stafford's fantasy game world, celebrates its Golden 50th anniversary. We feel the time is right to bring the celebrated classic second edition of RuneQuest back into print. Gaming is going through a bit of an Old School renaissance as of late, and we want RuneQuest to be a part of it. We hope you’ll join in on the fun!
       
      REWARDS:
      The RuneQuest Hardcover Book - is 144 pages. It will have sewn binding. It contains all the 2nd edition text, but with all the errata incorporated where it belongs. Additional material has been added to the appendices at the end. If you want more than one copy of the book, add another $30 for each additional book to the level you are backing.
       
      The RuneQuest Leatherette Hardcover Book - is 144 pages. It is in red leatherette with gold foil stamps on the front and spine. It has a color dust jacket. If you want more than one copy of the book, add another $50 for each additional book to the level you are backing.
       
      The Player Handouts - are 20 pages of reference material for the players to use during character creation and ongoing play.
       
      The GM Screen - is two 11 inch x 17 inch (very close to A3 paper size) color cardstock panels with handy charts and tables from the Rulebook on the GM side, and classic Luise Perrene art on the Player Side.
       
      The Old School RQ Source Pack - consists of four of the earliest RQ1/RQ2 supplements published: Militia & Mercenaries, Scorpionmen & Broos, Trolls & Trollkin and the Balastor's Barracks scenario. Each is about 16 pages in length with a color cardstock cover. If you want more than one copy of this Source Pack, add another $50 for each additional Source Pack to the level you are backing.
       

       
      The Runequest Playtest Manuscript book - is a 250+ page hardcover book created from high resolution scans of the original playtest manuscript. This manuscript is the only known set of playtest notes in existence which were lovingly kept in a binder for the last 40 years. This playtest material was used to create the first edition of RuneQuest. It includes newly written introductory essays by Steve Perrin and Greg Stafford. Here's a few pictures of the original:
       

       
      The 2 volume "Unpublished Scenarios and Source Material" set - is two hardcover books with hundreds of pages of unpublished RuneQuest material by Greg Stafford and other early authors. It includes a fair bit of Sorcery rules for the West, the Howling Tower scenario set in the Upland Marsh, as well as a wide range of other material, esoteric and otherwise. We will describe it in more detail in the comments section and the FAQ. This reward is only available as part of this Kickstarter.
       
       
       
       
       
       
      Into old school RPGs, love Glorantha/Runequest ?
       
      then this one is a great choice
       
      they seem to have fulfilled their last KS OK with minor hiccups

      SITHRAH is a sci-fi about a little girl trying to find her father after their plane crashes in a unfamiliar land. That's when she starts seeing an invisible creature, called SITHRAH, who has been following her around. It's not long until she runs into a young man named Dino who is running from his own ghosts. Together they set out to find her missing father wherever the evidence leads. 
      Book 4 will focus on their journey across The Deep to try to find Light City.
      This series will be 6 books long.
      Sithrah has been a big experiment with the comic format by mixing subtle prose with comic panels. My hope is to blur the lines between comics, children's books, and novels without making it jarring for the reader.
      Most of my inspiration comes from the comic artists of the 90's when I refined my drawing style. Later I became influenced by Miyazaki's movies and storytelling and have been trying to make comics that have a similar depth and feeling.
