Oathsworn: Into the Deepwood

Recommended Posts

@Mashing - The character models are made from HIPS. The monster models will be made from a hard PVC/ABS mixture to ensure flat bases and straight weapons along with holding the details. To your point, we need to add another sentence to differentiate between the two.

I saw their booth at Gencon. It looks interesting especially the giant rat monster and the tree.

 

I played in a demo session; game play seems plausible enough. My main concern is that the production seems exceedingly ambitious, and I am wondering what the likelihood of Kickstarter fulfillment meltdown is.

 

I’m still smarting from a table project that went toxic about two years back and disappeared with $800+ of my money...

I can't find prior miniature boardgame experience by this company. 

 

BGG only shows one game for the company. : https://www.boardgamegeek.com/boardgamepublisher/39195/shadowborne-games

About page has only one logistics person. : https://www.shadowborne-games.com/about

Here's his LinkedIn profile. Plenty of experience, but not in miniatures or boardgaming. : https://www.linkedin.com/in/corey-coffman-01424043/

 

I'm not that interested in the game, so didn't research further. Since this looks to be a First Created project, I would ask the creator what experience they have.

Well, that’s good enough...as in, that’s sufficient information to remind me to steer clear.  While it looks great, and they did manage to scrape together a good booth set-up for Gencon, so did the table company.  Discretion is the better part of valor...

I fully appreciate your concern. I mean hey, I backed Axes and Anvils and we all know how badly that turned out. That being said, I've backed a load of projects and a vast majority have turned out well. In over a hundred projects there's only been two or three instances where someone ran off with the money. There's been projects that fully delivered, projects that partially delivered (meaning I'm still waiting for more stuff that isn't due out yet), projects that are due to deliver later on etc.

 

From everything I'm seeing so far I've got a good feeling about this one. I'm willing to give them the benefit of the doubt.

I'm the guy asking for a Painter's Pack of multiple hero bodies so I can assemble different variants. They said they hadn't planned it but might put out such a  pack if there was enough demand. Perhaps you might want to go and demonstrate demand in the comment's section....?

This is the kind of project where I would be all over the monsters, if they were available seperately or in a just the minis pledge. But as it stands it is far too expensive.

Live and thriving. It's funding at a rather swift rate despite having good competition in the likes of Reaper Bones 5. It's not going at Kingdom Death speed or the kind of speed you'd see for yet another CMON ZOmbiecide re-release. They also set the funding goal lower than expected so the overfunding percentage would look very successful. That being said they're doing very well 'though and it will be interesting to see where they end up.

 

Needless to say I went all in immediately, on the dot, on the hour, and still 2,069 people somehow managed to get their pledges processed before me. That implies a day 1 swell which may die down over time. I'm expecting the mid campaign lull to hit this one hard.

I'll be in for the basic standee version (there's a handful of enemy minis I'd like to get, but not enough to justify the whole set), I just need to find my pesky credit card again.

Hopefully I'll find it before the 24 hour freebie deadline is up.

      About
        Tabletop RPG gaming saved my life during a time when I was really struggling. The act of a scheduled activity where I would go have fun with friends on a regular basis helped me overcome my depression. It helped me build stronger connections with friends, create a sense of community, and, as cheesy as it sounds, gave me somewhere to belong. As a way to contribute back to the fandom creatively, I started Dispel Dice. 
      Since then, it’s grown more than I could have possibly imagined in a short period of time. I want to share Dispel Dice with the world, and to do that, I need to accelerate production so it can be sustainable long-term.
      Dispel Dice stands in solidarity with Kickstarter United.
        To promote our debut, we have some Day One Pledge Bonuses available until tomorrow morning! They will be added to your pledge, free of charge, if you pledge within the first 24 hours. Day One Pledge Bonuses stack on top of the general Kickstarter bonuses. All orders placed up until 11/7, 9:00AM PST will qualify for a Day One Pledge Bonus, but after that, the offer expires!
      The pin may still be ordered during and after the campaign, but the D20 is exclusive to Day 1 pledgers. If you pledge 3 sets or MORE, you will receive the Merlot D20. 
          PRICES DO NOT INCLUDE SHIPPING OR FEES IMPOSED BY YOUR COUNTRY. SHIPPING WILL BE CHARGED ON TOP OF YOUR ORDER AFTER THE KICKSTARTER CONCLUDES VIA BACKERKIT. VAT TAXES, IMPORT FEES, CUSTOMS FEES, & DUTIES ARE NOT INCLUDED.

      Hour of Need is a cooperative game of comic book action inspired by the costumed heroes that many of us grew up with. Using the Modular Deck System (MDS), also featured in Street Masters, Brook City, and Altar Quest, the game features incredibly modular gameplay using several different types of decks. Hero decks, villain decks, and issue decks can all be mixed and matched to create countless combinations of unique play experiences.
      Miniatures
      Each hero in Hour of Need is represented by a highly-detailed miniature, as well as each villain and their associated lackeys.
      Hero Decks
      Each hero in Hour of Need is defined by their unique deck of cards, representing their crime-fighting abilities. While each hero has their own playstyle, all hero decks share something in common in the form of heroic feats which make certain cards multi-purpose—do you want to play a card for its ability, or keep it in your hand to use its “toughness” heroic feat icon to protect yourself from damage? Managing your hand is crucial in avoiding crises!
      Villain Decks
      Villain decks are the primary opposition in Hour of Need. During the villain turn, each player draws a villain card and resolves its icons—these will spawn minions in scheme panels, trigger special villain abilities, or spawn perils & lackeys on the map. Additionally, villain cards feature “Showdown” effects that are resolved whenever a villain is attacked by a hero—if the heroes can first reveal the villain!
      Issue Decks and Issue Boards
      Like any good comic book series, Hour of Need tells its stories through issues—issue decks, in this case. Each issue deck is accompanied by an issue board that sets the scene for the conflict. The issue deck details the overall story and special rules for the game. Whether the heroes are attempting to thwart a bank robbery or prevent advanced weaponry from being stolen, the issue deck will provide the villain with their overall goal, which the heroes must prevent in order to win!
      Issue Guides
      The issue guide provides all the narrative and rules clarifications for each issue in the game. Players can choose to play a more story-based experience by reading each story point as its cue effects are triggered.
      Hero Dice
      Heroes must fight and solve their way through their enemies’ various machinations. Hero dice are used to resolve each fight and solve action, while focus tokens are used to mitigate these rolls.
      Tokens
      Tokens are used to track various game elements, such as how much damage a character has suffered, how much justice has been dealt to a problem, as well as where minions and bystanders appear on the board. Additionally, each issue introduces unique tokens to add another level of thematic immersion.
