Strap in and blast off! The Starfinder Roleplaying Game puts you in the role of a bold science-fantasy explorer, investigating the mysteries of a weird and magical universe as part of a starship crew. Will you delve for lost artifacts in the ruins of alien temples? Don rune-enhanced armor and a laser rifle to battle undead empires in fleets of bone ships, or defend colonists from a swarm of ravenous monsters? Maybe you'll hack into the mainframe of a god-run corporation, or search the stars for clues to the secret history of the universe or find brand new planets to explore. Whether you're making first contact with new cultures on uncharted worlds or fighting to survive in the neon-lit back alleys of Absalom Station, you and your team will need all your wits, combat skill, and magic to make it through. But most of all, you'll need each other.

Stretch Goals are items that unlock as the campaign reaches new heights. More options for heroes, encounter packs, creatures, and fleets will be revealed over time. There are three types of goals: Freebies, Optionals, and Social Media Stretch Goals.

Freebies will be added to the Adventure Pledge and Campaign Pledge as soon as they unlock. Optionals will provide additional options to use on those Hero, Encounter Pack, Creature, and Fleet Slots. Social Media unlocks depend on the number of shares the following post receives on Paizo and Ninja Division’s Facebook pages.

How the Starfinder Masterclass Miniatures Slot System Works

To offer the most customizable pledge rewards possible we have developed the Kickstarter Slot System. There are 4 kinds of Slots: Hero, Encounter Pack, Creature, and Fleet. The Adventure and Campaign pledges come not only with specific models but several types of Slots to customize the pledge. Every item option has a Slot type and cost. Additional Slots beyond those in the Adventure and Campaign Pledge can be purchased for the cost listed in the Additional Slots section. As the campaign progresses and more stretch goals are unlocked the type of Slot and cost of each unlocked model will be listed in the appropriate section.

Freebie Stretch goals add one free model or upgrade to the pledge. Additional models of that unlocked Freebie may be purchased as listed in the appropriate section.

HEROES: Each Hero represents an individual pulled from the varied Starfinder races, character classes, and themes. These heroes double as playable characters and non-player characters, providing numerous options for players and gamemasters alike!

ENCOUNTER PACK: Encounter Packs include a mix of creatures and hero-like characters that the heroes may encounter in their adventures. Each pack is designed to supply figures for a standard encounter. More ambitious adventurers may encounter larger groups so it never hurts to get multiples of each encounter pack!

I'm a little concerned about this.  Especially since they already took money from me for that they're showing in this set when I pre-ordered directly from them back in August.  Having to kickstart to fulfill orders isn't cool.  Deciding later to kickstart after you've put things up for sale isn't cool.

 

This isn't addressed in the KS FAQ.  They've removed the Starfinder minis from their store.  I've used their contact form to seek some clarity on what they're doing and how it relates to my preorder.

I preordered 2 of the minis as well... The Envoy and the Lashunta technomancer... I asked in the comments section on the Kickstarter...

 

Some of the minis offered here are the same that were preorder last month. Creator advised:

"Hi there Bill,

The miniatures you have pre-ordered are still on the way. We will be fulfilling your pre-orders of the promotional line we did for Gencon. We wanted to include those designs in this Kickstarter to give other people a chance at getting some, as they will come from the same manufacturer, and be less limited. This does not effect your order, and those miniatures are in process to get out to you and other pre-orders right away. For those reading this - we had a short period we offered a promotional pre-order of 8 of the Key Iconic characters from the Starfinder RPG for the last 45 days. They are now included in the campaign if you missed them there."

The pre-order issue is part of what I am concerned about. I think it would be good for them to get the minis to those who pre-ordered before this KS ends. 

 

Part of what I am curious about is what kind of 'resin' they will be using. Is it the ultra fragile stuff? That would effect my decision to buy.

It's good to hear the "gencon" era minis are on the way.  I just wish there was a time frame.  If I hear something, I'll copy here.

 

As for the resin, I saw a set that Paizo took to Origins this year.  It's not silly fragile, but thin bits would probably break from a fall any longer than an inch or two.

 

On a final note, Smokestack is a braver man than I for wading into KS comments. :)

Wish I could say, but they are 2 months late on sending the first wave of their previous resin KS.

 

At the moment this is a no for me.

I Have not seen anywhere as to what the release date is for the preorders, and they are no longer on the store site. I emailed then a couple weeks ago, but never got a response...

 

From the comments it sounds like they are working with a new company... So don't know if any of their previous resin stuff will be comparable.

I was pretty early in, before the kickstarter comments filled up with backers of previous KS that have not delivered... the comments kind of convinced me to drop out to be honest... Really like the space goblins, but there is always retail.

Can anyone involved with the following KS'ers confirm they are still undelivered?

 

Rail Raiders - Raised 339K - Due Oct 2016 (??? Shipped to US, Has not yet Shipped to ROW, they are promising soon.)

Super Dungeon Legends - Raised 1.2M - Due Dec 2016 (Just finished Pre-Production Work)

Way of the Fighter - 91K - Due July 2017 (Supposedly waiting on shipping manifests from China to be sure everythings on the water.)

Relic Knights 2.0 - Raised 338K - Due Feb 2018 (Entering Production)

 

That would put 4 of their 6 completed projects as not being completed yet. (Way of the fighter was started and cancelled.) It looks like Ninja all stars delivered earlier this year, even though they were due in Dec 2015.

Hey guys, Anthony again. 
I wanted to pull you all in and update you on our strategy to address the concerns you are voicing. The company just came together for a meeting to discuss our most valued assets, namely you, our fans and backers. 
Starting today, we will have David Freeman present and engaged with you in the Relic Knights 2.0 campaign. Tomorrow Justin will be with you on Super Dungeon Legends, and John will be with you for Rail Raiders Infinite and Way of the Fighter. All of us are committed to listening to you, and answering the questions and concerns that you are voicing to the absolute best of our ability. 
Later in the week, we are going to compile a Q and A document containing answers and responses to the most common questions and concerns. 
So, that said, I can once again encourage you to address any questions or concerns regarding our other projects to that project, and know that you will be engaged with as much as we are able to within the times I stated above. 
We appreciate your continued patience and support!

 

 

The Starfinder KS is the 'First' Ninja division KS. However, I noted when I went looking for the Startfinder pre-order minis that I had to go to the SodaPop site to find them. My understanding is there is not much difference between the two companies.

This is exactly the kind of red flags I steer clear of.

This is what they updated regarding outstanding projects.

  • Relic Knights (In Development)- Our design team is nearly through ALL testing of the new rules set. All miniatures are done, and layout has begun 
  •  Rail Raiders (Done & Delivering) - US product has shipped to backers, we have a few items we will send along to address mis-packs from the factory in these pledges. Global hubs will be receiving their product for immediate distribution next month. 
  • Way of the Fighter (Done & Delivering) - WoF is packed along with the Rail Raiders product, and will be in the same shipping waves - with expected delivery to all global hubs and backers to begin next month. The miniatures wave is fully sculpted and will start pre-production soon.

Yeah still waiting on SDE: Legends. Wave 1 promised soon, no date set, no production samples yet either. People posting they are upset to say the least about this Starfinder KS without fulfiling SDE:L yet but Soda Pop claims it is a different team/people working on this and sculpting for SDE is long done. It's not looking good for their reputation. I have faith they will fulfill but God knows when.

wow.  I wasn't aware of their track record.  that's really concerning.  not only late on preorders, but late on other kickstarters.

I love Paizo, the Starfinder game is fascinating, and Soda Pop makes some of my favorite minis.. but I don't really want to touch another Soda Pop/Ninja Division kickstarter. The trust is gone.

 

If this was a Reaper project I would have taken a year off of the f5 button's life span to be an early backer.

Easy will save here.  No interest in StarFinder and thus any figures to do with it.  ReaperCon and Bones 4 gives me plenty better spots to place my money.

      About
      Hello everyone,
      A warm welcome to our latest Kickstarter called Cyber Belles!
      These fairies have survived the eons and have adapted to modern times. We've placed them in an apocalyptic setting where mankind has all but destroyed the world and... itself! The fairies have evolved and have adjusted to the needs necessary to survive in this dangerous place! 
      The campaign will help us fund the production of three 75mm miniatures and maybe something else... which is small... and cute... ;) 
      The campaign is about three 75mm scale miniatures. Red Belle, Blue Belle and Yellow Belle.
      The artwork
      Red Belle Blue Belle Yellow Belle Note: the sculpts are a little bit different from the artwork shown. We mostly chose to do this to make them a little bit more realistic and also to make sure that the casting were strong enough in the end.
      The artwork
      Red Belle 
       Blue Belle 
       Yellow Belle

      Overview The 1000 page Hardcover Series by Jason Brubaker has finally come to it's epic conclusion. Now is your chance to collect all six hardcover books at a massive discount! All six books are first printing. The series will NOT be reprinted in this form again. Once they run out-of-stock, these collector books will be out-of-print. There will only be 2000 to 2500 copies of the complete series available. Hi, I'm Jason Brubaker and this is my new COMPLETE comic called Sithrah.
      I've worked as a professional Storyboard Artist, Animator and Visual Development Artist in Hollywood for 20 years on movies like Blade, Pitch Black, and the Kung Fu Panda Trilogy. In 2015 I quit my coveted and cushy job at Dreamworks Animation to pursue self-publishing my own graphic novels and I've been doing it ever since. My first graphic novel series is called reMIND and it won a few awards. 
      Sithrah 5 - 176 pages
      Sithrah 6 - 208 pages 
      Sithrah is a project very close to my heart. It is a journey about "the Leap of Faith" of a little girl who travels in and out of the spirit world to try to find her missing father. It is heavily inspired by my love for Miyazaki's movies but with a western worldview. 
      For this final campaign, I am printing the last 2 books in the series. The artwork is complete and pretty much ready for the printer. The last 2 books contain a total of 380 full color pages.
      Best of all, the final book is not scheduled to be released until the end of 2020 and so only backers will be able to read the full story without having to wait for the release date. If this campaign does really well and we sell out of copies, you will be the ONLY PEOPLE who will have copies of Sithrah 5 and 6. 

      The only reason I am able to print these high quality books is because of you. You guys have come through for each campaign and made it possible for my crazy stories to get published. You are my financiers, friends, editors, collaborators, inspiration, motivation, mentors and marketing partners. I could not have done any of this without you. You have changed and blessed my life in so many ways on this 5 year journey to complete Sithrah and I cannot thank you enough for helping me get these books made and onto coffee tables around the world.

      50% off of my entire back catalogue.
      Indiegogo exclusive! I am slashing the prices on all my old books for this campaign. This will be the cheapest price that you will be able to purchase Sithrah or reMIND. That means that you can get the entire Sithrah 6-book hardcover set for as low as $99. 
      Get Sithrah 6 a YEAR before anyone else!
      The release dates for each book is spaced out by a year for retailer orders and Amazon orders. That means that only you will be able to read the final Sithrah book a year and a half before it's release date and 6 months early for Sithrah 5.
      And if we sell all of the print run in this campaign then it means that you will be the ONLY ones who have a copy and I not release it in stores or on Amazon. Why would I limit the print run? Because the previous books only had a print run of 2500 copies and in order to print more copies of Sithrah 5 & 6, I would also have to reprint Sithrah 4, 3 and 2. And since I don't have that kind of money laying around I will not be reprinting those older books again.
      Win Exclusive Gifts
      You are my marketing experts! I need your help in spreading the word to all your friends and family and in return I will give you exclusive gifts and rewards. Watch the video below to see just how easy it will be to get something unique from this campaign like a sticker, art print or original inked page from the books.
      VIDEO
      Book Specs.
      Sithrah 1: Kingdom of the Air -  96 pages
      Sithrah 2: Propositions - 160 pages
      Sithrah 3: The Symbol - 188 pages
      Sithrah 4: The Deep - 176 pages
      Sithrah 5: Light City - 176 pages (NEW)
       Sithrah 6: The End - 208 pages (NEW)
      Only 500 copies of the new books have a signed and a numbered collectors bookplate.

      Art Contest - Get Your Art Printed in the Book!
      Just like my past publications, I want to include some guest art in the back of the printed books. And so… ART CONTEST!!! Submit your art while the campaign is active to get a chance at getting it published in the gallery of Sithrah: Book 5 or 6. Send me your amazing artistic version of the Sithrah characters to be printed in the book... FOREVER! If you make it into the book, you will be credited with your art. 

      The page dimensions are 6.75 inches (wide) x 10.5 inches (tall). Please make sure all art is 300dpi when scanned. The deadline for submission is the end of the campaign. Please send all submissions to CoffeeTableComics@gmail.com for consideration. I'll pick the final winner(s) for the book. :)
      Add-Ons
      I will be offering Add-ons when you take the survey after the campaign is finished. You will then have the option to add single books to your order as well as copies of reMIND and other books of mine at a discounted price. Because there are already so many books and options with this campaign I decided to keep the Add-Ons separate. But not to worry, you will have the option of adding things to your order prior to shipping.
      Timeframe
      The books are pretty much ready to go to the printer. I'll be preparing the files in InDesign while the campaign is active. The moment the campaign is finished I will deliver the files to the printer. The printing schedule will be about 2 months and so you will get your books before Christmas. International orders might take a little longer. 
      Why so Much Money?
      I've been making beautiful hardcover graphic novels for 10 years now. Sithrah: Books 1 - 4have already been printed with high quality cloth bindings, foil stamped covers and thick delicious paper. Yes, I said delicious. 
      To wrap up this series, I am trying to print the final two books at the same time. It usually costs about $12,000 to $15,000 to print just one book like this, and not only am I printing two books, I plan to make a collectors slipcase as well. The shipping costs have been anywhere between $8000 to $30,000 on my past campings and so that is why my funding goal is $45,000. If I don't reach this goal then you will be refunded and the books will not go to print. But I am confident that we can easily make this happen.
      Win Inked Pages and Prints!

       
       
      --------------------
      I'm a backer of the previous 4 books, and have also backed for these two books.

      Hello All, 
       
      Came across this looks interesting so thought I would leave it here
      https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/oraclesights/oracle-sights-handheld-projection-devices-for-tabl?ref=email
       
      I've been running games for 20+ years and I can hand wave AOE or mark it out with dice etc, this just looks like it would be fun and satisfying to see the full fireball effect in living color so to speak.
