Oracle Sights: Handheld Projection Devices for Tabletop RPGs

Recommended Posts

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.

Looks too fiddly, installing or replacing a pattern, and will probably only be used by THAT guy who always have to argue with the GM...

 

But hey, I'm not a gamer, so what would I know...

It's a neat idea & it has a nice visual effect for the table but at the price they want, I'll continue to use the 3D printed spell templates I have already.

10$ is a lot to ask to find out how much shipping will cost. That they didn't bother doing basic research for a ballpark shipping charge in advance is a big turn-off. Not having an exact charge is one thing, but I'd never back anything with the lack of information they provide. What else have they not bothered to research before launching their product?

Also seems fiddly. I agree templates are easy enough.

This is why options are good, I have always found metal or plastic templates fiddly once a fight has closed in. But i run a game for a lot of players and there tend to be a lot of mini's on the board. Would have been better if he had said shipping would be payed after though with how shipping internationally has gone through the roof there might not be a good way to do it theses days. Its the first one for this company I am willing to cut a little slack, then again I'm in the states and can afford to.

      Just ran across this. I’m not familiar with the company, but they seem pretty established in the historical line. Anyone have thoughts on these? The price per figure seems reasonable for good resin.
