CMON Time Machine

Yeah, it's getting rid of old stock (isn't it against KS TOS to sell already finished product?). But the conditions are incredibly bad ... Not Europe-Friendly, shipping from US ... and if you already have Rising Sun, Green Horde and Blood Rage, but are interested in - for example - Song of Fire and Ice, you pledge 1 dollar and have to wait 48 hours longer than people who buy a full pledge. In that time, most of the limited stuff will be gone, especially as everybody who gets in is "limited" to FIVE copies of each (as far as I understood). Ebay scalpers will have a field day.

If you're in the US, and want any of the vault stuff then $1 to gamble it will still be there isn't a bad deal (especially if they don't really know whats there, as I wouldn't be surprised if the PM has stuff added periodically as the find more boxes of stuff)…. or your in a country where you've got a high personal threshold for paying import taxes

 

but if your in most of the rest of the world then it's a lot less of good thing as you're going to have to pay to import the stuff yourself (so for me in the UK i'll need to pay 20% extra +£8 minimum)

 

So i'm in for now but I suspect i'm just giving them a $

Nope. I've seen some KS where they add digital content as an excuse to sell existing product. 

 

Can't wait for October 1st. :lol:

I thought KS TOS also prohibit just selling your old stuff?

I'd presume that's the actual reason they're doing those artbooks and soundtracks. That alone makes the project comply to the letter of the KS law, even though it very obviously isn't in the spirit thereof.

They now have changed a couple of things:

 

- if you have backed some of their projects before and only pledge 1$, you do not have to wait 48 hours to get into the Time Vault

- it's now a limit of 1 per person on certain rare things / things in high demand.

 

It begs the question: have they lost their touch with base? Why not apply those rules from the start? Why risk such a huge uproar? Did they really think they'd get away with it?

I played Massive Darkness. You're not missing anything. <_<

 

The miniatures are great for boardgame plastic, but that's about it. I do use the orcs and goblins as proxies in Gloomhaven, because finding a set of archers, warriors, and shamans is otherwise a pain.

It wasn't a bad game. My group played about 4 times. It was fun. We did stumble on a character/gear combination that was really broken looking.  We couldn't find anything in the rule book, and initially found conflicting arguments on the web. after about 30 minutes of the game coming to a halt for us to look it up, we eventually did find an official ruling and we were in fact doing it wrong. (I dont remember the specifics but one player got a relic thing that let them do damage anytime they entered a square to all enemies... It did damage to all enemies... and the damage amount basically killed all enemies in teh square... The character had an ability that let them move out of squares with enemies and move into a new square... So the player moved into a zone. Killed all the enemies, then moved to another zone and killed all the enemies their too. So, all the bad guys were getting insta-killed and that player was getting lots of loot and xp... Once that was resolved the game got back on track. 

 

I have not been interested in CMON games in a while. Still like the minis. If i thought it would be worth the effort, I would sell Zombicide ,1 2 and 4, as well as the Others, Blood Rage, (and while not CMON) would also sell Conan and Mythic Battles Pantheon.

 

Edit: Would probably only keep Zombicide Black Plague/Green Horde and Massive Darkness.

      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.

      Story
      The world of Alberon, as ancient and unknowable as its timeless depths are, has few certainties for those that live in it, but ruin and corruption awaits all but a blessed few.  Halflings are, of course, no exception...
      The Western Wastelands beyond Midlam are a harsh unforgiving environment, that breeds a fierceness through necessity for survival alone.  It is thought that the first halflings to enter the Wastelands, did so unwillingly, captured by Hobgoblin Raiders some several hundred years ago.  
      It is reported that the Hogoblins thought that their small size would make them useful servants for all manner of tasks, but when the monstrous and unstoppable nature of their appetites became apparent, the halflings were stranded in the middle of the wasteland and left them to die.  
      That they didn't is some testament to the hidden reserves and ingenuity of these small folk, but they have not survived unscathed.  Their souls, often forsaken to unknowable gods, have changed as much as their bodies and minds.
      As a counterpoint to the Wasteland halflings, those that inhabit the town have found unusual niches, whether that be as criminal masterminds, pirates, anarchists, grave robbers and the somewhat cliched, but ever problematical, burglars.
      An Excerpt from 'The Robbit' by The Wizard R.R.R. Gudgrief
      Welcome to Halflings Gone Bad - Volume One!
      A collection of sixteen 28mm scale halflings from the wrong side of the elven forest tracks, for all of your fantasy miniature games.
      Welcome to our second Kickstarter to cover some of the more nefarious occupations and depths that halflings have stooped to.
      The worrying nature of the appearance of wasteland halflings, something seen as a threat to all halfling civilisation, combined with the new depths of depravity of halflings in Midlam has called for a new town council to be convened from amongst the artisans and workers of Halftown.
