Dungeons & Doggies Kickstarter

Recommended Posts

all or nothing option only =(

 

$35 for the 2 dogs i want is a way too steep, so i'm out. I'll get the 2 dogs i want at retail, providing they aren't super expensive. I just dont' want the entire pack. I only liked 2 out of the whole bunch

Maybe? (especially if they're doing multiple minis in one tool, which would be viable since there's no picking individual items),

 

but they do know what they're doing with PVC as steamforged has been working with it for a while both for large stuff (the Darksouls boardgame) and smaller stuff (the Guildball teams) and clearly has access to a factory that works with them (and an ongoing relationship means less chance of spontaneous cost rises etc for them post KS)

 

should be a decent bet as KS projects go

I'm In! 

I might have sorted through the dogs to find the half I liked better.

but im just as happy with them all.  

The one pledge level and the 10 month wait seems realistic to me,  they are making as simple as possible to fulfill.

They're cute to look at and if I am ever in s position to grab one or two retail without exorbitant shipping I might get them as novelties but for the moment they don't serve any purpose and there is no real incentive to join in.

 

Basically,  if you want them this looks great but there is nothing to entice me to join for a lark or continue my interest in the ride.

I've been working on finding room on the credit card to work two sets of these guys in. 

 

Doesn't help that shipping is right around hubby's birthday, doubly so that hubby really likes almost all of the sculpts!

I'm in. I definitely like some of them more than others but still think they will all be fun to paint. I just hope I can remove them from the bases. If not, oh well.

I actually expected a higher cost on this. It is a shame there isn't an option for individual or 3-packs, instead of all-or-nothing though. 

 

I am contemplating this for sake of my mom - she adores doggos.

I like the sculpts! I am pretty impressed that they managed to make that large of a variety of dog poses while still keeping the models as one piece castings.

 

I get that they can't make every breed, let alone mutts, but between 13 dogs there isn't a single terrier?

 

I find the lack of terriers disturbing!

 

This must be the influence of a secret cat conspiracy.

I'm in. :-)

 

I was a little worried that they were doing so well so quickly, and it's their first solo KS, but not having any stretch goals really does sort of cap their development costs. I'm looking forward to getting my doggies!

 

btw, if there was one additional dog I'd like to have seen it would have been a Mountain Dog. I know, they have the Saint Bernard, but a SB looks totally different, to, from any of the several Mountain Dogs, i.e. Burmese MD, Pyrenees MD, Maremma, etc. Ok, the drooping face is the main difference, but that is very distinctive . . . At least for me. Of course the fact that I have a GP has NOTHING to do with it. ::D:

Are you sure? That grocer's apostrophe is pretty barbaric.

Pupdate 4 - Doggie Wallpaper & The Good Mother Doggie Deity

HI all, Russ here!

Just a quick update to say we are exactly two days in and over 5,200 of the very best humans (and dogs) have joined us to make this a reality!

This is simply to say thank you, and reaffirm that as well as working on getting the project looking its absolute best, we will be sharing some fantastic snippets and other cool stuff in the coming days so stay tuned!

Once again, your support means the world to the team working with me on this and we will make you all proud!

Symbol of The Good Mother


The Good Mother - Deity of Dogs

The Good Mother may be worshipped by divine canine adventurers instead of an existing deity. Her symbol is that of a mother encircling a sleeping pup and she is the embodiment of protection, nurturing and companionship. Her followers are devoted to a strong belief in the importance and power of familial and friendship bonds, the strength found in cooperation and the enrichment of companionship. They are also fierce in their protection of those they see as their pack.

All awakened doggies know of the Good Mother. This is an instinctive understanding and memory of the nurturing they received as puppies. This well-known aspect of the Good Mother is known as She who Nurtures, and has been adopted by Clerics, Bards and some Druids.

However, as more doggies awaken, more aspects of the Good Mother are being discovered. Canine whispers of She Who Hunts or She Who Protects are slowly entering the world of dogs...

Shrines to the Good Mother

Some Doggies have come across Shrines to the Good Mother. These cannot be seen but must be sniffed out. What may appear as a normal, unassuming patch of ground to other races is a fascinating hidden way to a spiritually uplifting place of power for dogs connected to the Good Mother.

It is said that if a Doggie discovers a Shrine to the Good Mother, she may enter it by bowing, or offering a paw. Once inside this mysterious sanctuary – usually constructed of natural ma-terials and with the lingering scent of a recent litter – the doggie feels refreshed and replen-ished. If some time is spent in the shrine, concentrating on the aspect that the Doggie feels closest to, sometimes a boon is conferred. Doggies have reported their coats feeling shinier and softer, their claws sharpening, and their bite strengthening.

Sample Cleric Ability: Aspect of the Amicable
You gain the ability to cast Charm Person once per short rest. You also gain proficiency in persuasion.

Download Dungeons & Doggies Wallpaper!

I've made up some wallpaper for you to use, if you're so inclined, just thought it would be a nice way to further support the campaign in your own little way. It's available to download below:

      Story
      The fabric of reality is twisting anew, and Fate herself groans in agony. An adventurer has received an artifact both ancient and strange: the Deck of Many Things, which deals boon and woe with the capriciousness of a fey princess.
      But something else is contained herein.
      Another deck, alike in power, bearing spells and shames never before seen in this world or any other. I present you, wise man or fool, with the Deck of Many Fates.
       Two Decks. Infinite Fates.
      All dungeon masters, veteran and novice alike, have heard the legends of the Deck of Many Things. A treasured artifact which can infuse any campaign with danger, wonder, and delight. But look here: another deck has emerged from behind the veil of mystery. A deck equal in power, yet bursting with epic confrontations and sinister secrets. The Deck of Many Fates.
      Comprised of two decks totaling 49 jumbo-size tarot cards, The Deck of Many Things and the Deck of Many Fates are the perfect accessory for your adventuring party. Our finest sages have also included a guide on the use of these cards, as irresponsible operation may lead to disfigurement, death, and worse. 
      The Deck of Many Things has been an RPG mainstay for over 40 years. It is an artifact of immense power and extreme chaos. Twenty-two cards each contain a strange, potent, and often game-changing effect. Perhaps you shall draw the fabled Flame card, and with it the enmity of a powerful nemesis. Or, just as likely, you may draw the Gem card, blessing you with immense wealth.
      Unlike its relative, the Deck of Many Fates is a relatively new artifact, unknown to most. It contains a staggering twenty-seven cards, each with a new power, curse, or opportunity. The Deck of Many Fates may be used on its own as an independent deck, or shuffled together with the Deck of Many Things to create a 49 card hybrid of magic, terror, and destiny.
      The Deck of Many Things and the Deck of Many Fates includes 49 jumbo tarot cards, sized at 120mm x 70mm (~4.75" x 2.75") in two hand-illustrated tuck boxes, and helpful instructions for use and play.
        Shipping
      Hopefully this step is nice and easy. We've designed a lightweight, tightly-packed product that ships nicely. Domestic (USA) orders ship free, and all International Orders pay a flat $5.
      Campaign Updates & Stretch Goals
      This campaign will have no stretch goals; what you see is what you get. We'll be using the updates to reveal more cards from our mysterious, proprietary Deck of Many Fates.
      Risks and challenges
      Common risks for cards items and RPG accessories typically include product and fulfillment issues. We're partnering with an experienced supplier we've worked with on several major projects like Wolves of Mercia, Derby Day Horse Racing, Michigan Rummy, and Faerie Chess. We're confident in their ability to produce and deliver, as we've seen it for ourselves dozens of times!
       
       
      EDIT: I am in. $15 for 2 Decks, 49 Tarot sized cards with free shipping to US. Seems like a good deal and a small risk.

      Didn't see a topic for this yet.
      2 Limited edition miniatures in 80mm scale. 'Lady Godiva' and 'The Mirror', both based on classical paintings.
      Older miniatures in the series can be bought as an add-on. Comments on previous kickstarters are pretty positive, apparently the casts are good, they're well packaged and sent out on time.

      Nocturna is getting on the new paint band wagon. These seem to be a different line than their already existing paints collaborated with Vallejo. Plus some new figures. Wooo.
