I was surprised to see the pulse too. Maybe I should look that campaign up and see what ended up happening there. 

I just did. Silence for years.

Final 25% Push to funding


Thank you backers. With your support the project is now 78% on the way to being funded with 9 and a partial days to go. So far so good and thank you for your support of the project.

BackerKit is currently projecting a finish of just over $20,000 for the project which is great but we need to make sure the project keeps momentum to make that a reality. Reaching $20,000 would allow us to easily unlock colors in the new dice as stretch goals and I'd love to offer those up. Also stretch goals will add additional free dollars to spend for several levels and I'd like to offer those to the backers as well.

If you have a chance ... give the project a Share on Facebook or a Shout out with the Tweet or a Reddit post. Anything is a great help in order to push us to funded status and then on to the stretch goals which are planned for every $2,500 past the $15,000 funding goal.

Tom @ Impact!

@dice4hire .. as part of this KickStarter I am offering backers who were victims of the Pulse Dice KickStarter free Pulse dice (or Pulse dice at cost) ... since this is my 40th KickStarter I wanted to give back to the KS community with this project.

There's only 5 sides to the vowel dice. That's discrimination against anyone with a sensible alphabet. 

 

 

@Gadgetman!So I understand what you are saying fully!   Here are two reasons Y was left off.

 

1)  Koplow already makes a D6 with all the Vowel plus Y on it.

2)  This was meant to be compliment die to the D21 Consonant Die I made with this project ... so between the 2 dice you have the full alphabet.

 

I do realize that Y is sometimes vowel.   Just was trying to make things that didn't already exist along with a matching letter die set.

He is from Norway, so I guess he's missing some other Vowels (stuff like Ø, or ö, ä, ü for the German Alphabet).

They're  Æ. Ø and Å.   

Those are really important letters, though. 

'Æ' is sometimes used as 'I' or 'me' in dialect, 'Ø' is the first letter in the word 'øl'(translates to beer... ) and 'Å' is not only the last letter in out alphabet, it's also the name of the island way out on the top of the Lofoten archipelago.

Nitpicking, but the "combination of being able to roll 3 dice with each roll" isn't actually useful from a random number generation pov, due to the d36 and the 2d6 results not actually being independent results. For example, with just a single roll of the combination die, the sample table provided will never swarm the group with 36 kobolds, given 36 on the d36 only ever occurs for 2d6=12. (And you'd always get 6 owlbears on a 2d6=12, because obviously both d6 show a 6.)

 

So, yeah, for fun and giggles, go ahead, but I pity the fool trying to actually run a balanced game trying to use this to do multiple rolls with just one roll of a die.

Wow, Tom, that's really nice of you.  I think i speak for a lot of folks when I say that I'm glad you're part of our community.

Since we're all playing fantasy games here, shouldn't we have vowel dice that include an apostrophe?

      Story
        It is 2159 and you are living on an Earth frozen by a man-made Ice Age. You are a member of the 4 man resupply crew arriving for your first day on the job at the World Exit Research Station. You’ll be joining one of the many research projects taking humanity to the stars.
      You are going to save the world, but not the way you expected to!
      Neo-Morphosis: Infestation is a Sci-Fi fast-paced fully co-operative survival game for 1-4 players. In this game, you and your colleagues must preserve the integrity of the research station from the alien creatures that overrun it while completing scenario objectives.  In campaign mode, you play through several connected scenarios while attempting to reach the truck located at the other side of the research station and escape from the creatures that infested it.

      Not as great as the first one so far. More expensive for less models. Not too fond of the buildings. The bosses seem lacking as well, though I like the water myrmidon. Some of the stretch goal unlocks haven't been shown yet, so it might look better once they do that.
