Stonehaven Pop-up Fantasy Settings

Story

I love pop-ups. It never fails to surprise me when a pop-up unfolds into 3D space from seeming nothingness. I hope you guys will have some of the fun that I had when I got to put these together. These kits are part miniature model, part 3d puzzle, and all paper-craft! As you build them, you'll be guided by the instructions and labels found in the kit, and also full instructional walk-through videos where I build them with you step-by-step. I put a lot of work into making sure these designs would work consistently and look good. It makes me happy every time I see them!

These pop-ups are a great way to fill your table up with neat working terrain that doesn't break the bank and is easy to carry around and store.

This time around, we are only offering the digital files. That being said, these files are designed to be printed on both A4 and American standard 8.5 x 11 inch letter-sized paper. All of the files (at least those that are completed at the end of the Kickstarter, including the first 5 settings) will be made available to all backers as soon as the Kickstarter funds are distributed to us (Usually within 2 weeks of the project end date).

After printing, the pages will look something like this:

You'll need additional supplies such as a hobby knife, double-sided tape, and backing material in order to assemble your pop-ups.  Once you put them together, you will be able to combine them into fantastic miniature worlds!

Our initial funding goal will cover the design of the first five settings and one flat terrain peice. These will include the Mageboat, the Market Square, the Traveler's Wagon, the Castle Wall, Charlie's Castle, and the Mysterious Grate Flat Hex.

 Mageboat

The Mageboat is a watercraft designed to be steered and propelled by magical means. At a 28mm scale it would measure 50 feet from bow to stern. Take your adventures to the high seas with this sturdy vessel!

 Market Square

At the Market Square, you can find food, drink, weapons, and a host of other curios. This is probably where that stolen painting wound up, now coated in a thick layer of dust, after nearly 2 decades.

 Traveler's Wagon

The travelers are the continent's most prolific traders, and are always a welcome sight. But this cart seems to have been left unattended. Its team of horses and usual occupants are mysteriously missing. It was probably the giant ants. Again. Yes . . . that was what happened.

 Castle Wall

The castle wall is the perfect place to hatch a "storming the castle" plot. All you need is a wheelbarrow and a holocaust robe. You probably already have both! Print out and assemble 6 copies of the castle wall and you'll have yourself a stronghold!

Charlie's Castle

Charlie's castle is a very small castle (more of a fort really) that is mostly used as a customs checkpoint these days. It's fortunate that you adventurers came along, you can clear out the tribe of goblins that have set up camp within its walls.

 Mysterious Grate Flat Hex

Not technically a pop-up, this hex tile provides some space for your characters to cross on their way to somewhere else. Because is it really a journey if no one journeys? Also, what's going on with that mysterious ground hole?

We are excited about making as many pop-up settings as we can to be included in this kit! That's why we are going to keep adding more stretch goals as these ones are met. Our current plan is that every additional thousand dollars pledged to the kickstarter adds a setting to the digital kit!

CORRUPTED SHRINE: $3000 Stretch Goal

This shrine honors the great philosophers and scientific minds that together founded the Elipsiconian council. Unfortunately, the shrine has lately become the site of several unexplained deaths. It's up to you to discover it's dark secrets! (This setting is a redesign using the basic structure of the Gazebo from our previous Pop-up Kickstarter.)

WATERFRONT FLAT HEX (Unpictured): $4000 Stretch Goal

This flat hex serves as a transition from land to water. Here you can fish, swim, and relax as you prepare to head back into the nearby ruins.

LONE TOWER (Unpictured): $5000 Stretch Goal

This lonely tower is where the orcish sniper is holed up, shooting hapless travelers as they move along the nearby roadway. You guys should head up there and make sure he (OR SHE! Petra asks why it couldn't be a female orcish sniper. Girls can be snipers too!) is stopped. 

As we reach these goals, more will be added to the kickstarter. We already have some pretty awesome stuff planned, but we also want your suggestions for the terrain you'd like to see in the set!

We are excited to get these pop-up files completed and have them in your hands so you can make them too! 

Risks and challenges

Because the focus of this kickstarter is the creation of digital files, there will be very little that can go wrong. That being said, we could get sick or something. That could cause some delays. As with all digital files, backers might have difficulty opening and printing .pdf files on their end. We will do everything we can to ensure that backers can access and use the files from this kickstarter to make some awesome pop-ups.

Same here. DriveThruRPG has a ton of papercraft, including free, that I.. also haven't put together. :mellow:

      Anybody familiar with these guys? Was thinking about dipping my toes into this, in large part to expand my virtual tabletop resources, since that's the world in which we now live and all.

      GM: "As you enter the forest the first thing you notice is the absence of noise. There is the wind in the trees, but no insects droning or birds chirping." *I know I need to give these guys another encounter, but I don't have one prepared...* "You..um, come across a cave...and it.." *looks through books and papers* "Roll Perception..no wait! Um..."
       
      Player One: I HAVE DARKVISION!
       
      Player Two: Wait? What do we see? Huh?
       
      Player Three: I rolled a NAT 20! Tell me EVERYTHING I see, I rolled a NAT 20!

      Has this ever happened to you? Both novice and experienced GMs can sometimes have a hard time working random encounters into their adventures. We all know pre-planning every part of an adventure is futile, and any good plan falls apart as soon as the Players start rolling dice. The Tome of Encounters seeks to eliminate the worry and book fumbling with a handy list of fully fleshed-out and detailed encounters that can be placed into any situation in any adventure! 
       
      Detailed Within...
       
      The Tome of Encounters has over 40 detailed encounters, ranging in difficulty from Easy to Deadly, in 11 different terrain types. From shipwrecked pirates to manticore ambushes, lost treasures and secret portals, vampire lairs, and basilisk dens, there is always a quick encounter to add a bit of danger at a moments notice! Each encounter is tailored to its environment, average party level, difficulty, and includes level accurate rewards and treasure. Scenes are set up to be quickly inserted into any 5e adventure with little to no preparation. Monster statistics are provided in this bookmarked PDF for easy reference. Some encounters even have additional "hooks" that the GM can use to engage their Players in additional side-quests! Each one to two-page encounter is also presented with a full-color map that details the environment the encounter takes place in and gives a grid that can be used to demonstrate monster and Player positions. The maps will also be included without words or other decorations so the GM can re-use them as they see fit.

      The Graveyard Collection
      This is a collection of graveyard themed terrain for your tabletop gaming pleasure. This KS is for STL files only. I have printed all the models and painted them to make sure everything is looking good! I used a Photon Zero and water washable resin to print all the models from"The Graveyard Collection". 
      Thanks to all of you wonderful people my first two KS's were a success and hopefully this one will be too. 
      Free Models
      All the models I make end up being free to the community. I post them on My Mini Factory and Thingiverse. I also make them available on my Patreon. My first KS "Cult of the Abyss" is already available on my Patreon. Some of the "Cult of the Abyss" models are already making there way onto My Mini Factory and Thingiverse. So, if money is an issue, you will still be able get all the files. You will just have to wait a little longer.
      The Graveyard Collection Models
      "Gravebrute" - Born from grave dirt, human remains, and headstones! "Gravebrute" (render) Large Mausoleum - Prints in six parts to be almost support-less The large mosoleoum is 6 seperate STL files to allow for nearly supportless printing. Multiple files also makes it Photon Zero friendly.. Small Mausoleum Tombs Grave Monuments
