I have a feeling our club is going to be running a lot of watery games in 2021! :lol:

 

And so many options to start new crews!

The Faun and Satyr would make good Tieflings, IMO.

 

Yes, definitely - I'm going to need at least two sets.

Im still annoyed at no teiflings again....sigh....well maybe in metal..

 

Well at least in metal there's already some really cool tielflings :( I know it's not the  same... 

They should take in consideration that they are now - just as dragonborn - a playable class on D&D 5th ed. I mean, they were before too but with modifiers I guess less people got them. 

If you're interested Dark Sword miniatures released two tielflings this months, although they look horrible IMO.

Not sure why you can't see it. Still there for me

I think part of the problem was the overly fragmented expansions. It took weeks to see the Greek expansion finished for example.

 

I also feel there's a hard limit on what people are willing to spend and reaper has slightly increased prices from past KS (e.g. core set is $120 instead of $100). Despite there being all this great stuff, I think people are getting less for their dollar. Not to say their KS aren't a great value, because they are, but I for example can't justify spending more than $300 on this so I have to make some tough decisions.

 

Yeah, that price increase matches the premium commanded by Bones minis in the online shop exactly - it seems that Bones customers like the increase in quality that Bones Black adds, but not the extra cost!

 

I definitely feel like Reaper's reached the limits of their backers' ability to fund the project.  That's why I'm suspecting that new backers are the ones who are probably carrying this Kickstarter.  There were a lot of people saying they would sit this Kickstarter out because they had most of what they wanted already, and didn't have the money this time around.  And there were a LOT of backers who wanted in for a dollar now, but didn't want to commit to anything until after the Kickstarter ended, and still more backers who are making excuses not to spend money on expansions, encounters, etc.  I don't know how many of these backers have changed their mind or will before the very end - how much of those sorts of comments was just talk - but I can't help thinking that experienced backers really are spending less this Kickstarter.

I've been away, and was hoping to see 80,000 the last hour. Looks the day has been running around 50,000 an hour. With less than 2 hours to go, 3.3 million?

Currently at about $70K per hour and climbing fast.

And there are the incubi and succubi...

 

There are those two devils that were teased, but for the life of me, I don't see how those would fit into the Kickstarter plan as it stands now at the last few minutes of the campaign.  Maybe next time?

As soon as the Ship was first shown on the twitch stream, I went looking for the last 12 issues of Dungeon Magazine, so I can run the Savage Tide adventure path.  A guy was selling an unread bundle of the last 12 issues of Dungeon Magazine, and the last 12 issues of Dragon Magazine, along with some of the campaign start booklets (for the players).  Came to less than $6.75 per issue, so I felt it was a good deal (due to licensing issues, these issues will never be made into legal PDF copies).

 

That's my Christmas present to myself, I guess.

 

2021 will see my group sailing the High Seas.

      Help a small bakeshop survive these COVID days....
       
      https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/sweet-alfas-cookbook/x/10803452#/
       
      Small Town Family Bake Shop at a Critical Point
      Sweet Alfas Bake Shop & Kitchen has been serving the Elizabeth, Parker & Aurora communities for 3 years. Melissa & Luigi Casaretto’s  journey began in 2012 as a fundraiser selling Peruvian Alfajores for their daughter’s dance event. It eventually flourished into a successful online cookie bakery. In 2017 they bought the kitchen they used to rent in Elizabeth, Colorado and Sweet Alfas was finally a brick and mortar shop.

      In 2020, the Covid-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic started to take shape and as early as February we started to see our sales dipping. We improvised and started serving curbside and specialty meals to survive. Unfortunately it wasn’t enough to save the bake shop and kitchen after all. Our business survives primarily on our wholesale efforts and our biggest accounts had to cut their orders by 50%. After reviewing our options we had no choice but to temporarily close and halt our 5 person operation.

      After mulling over what to do next, we decided we were not giving up without a fight. In order to raise funds we are opening our kitchen publicly to the world in the shape of a bakery and kitchen cookbook(as well as other unique perks we are offering).  All of our secrets, techniques and ideas will now be available in your own home. With your help we can catch up on our lease, payroll, supplies and help navigate these new waters we are traveling through. 
      In 2019 our community stepped up and helped us fund a new mixer when we were struggling. While we appreciated the community effort and love our community we have always wanted to give back. So instead of asking for handouts, we are asking you to help us fund a 100 page cookbook with detailed recipes and photography. 
      What We Need & What You Get
      By purchasing our cookbook you can help us catch up on our lease, payroll, supplies and help navigate these new waters we are traveling through with some expansion of our kitchen, bakery and staff.

      You’ll notice we have some tiered packages. We are not only going to offer our cookbook, we are going to include shirts, hoodies, master class videos and gift cards.

      Our goal is $20,000 which is what we were asking for from the SBA. At this time we’ve received very little confirmation from the SBA about our loan. So instead of asking for forgivable money, we want to fund a cookbook for our most loyal customers and supporters. We would rather earn it and show you some love back.
      The Impact
      We have always wanted to make a cookbook and now this opportunity has forced our hand. So on the positive side, we see a win/win situation. We can provide something special globally and save our local bakery, maintain our wholesale accounts in Parker and Aurora, keep our employees and remain in Elizabeth, CO.
      Many of our customers across the US can not try some of our more traditional baked goods because it’s expensive to ship them. So this gives everyone a chance to try our baked goods.  They say restaurants don’t survive after a year of being in business. We’ve survived 3 years and were finally making the right strides.  We’re gonna be here for a very long time and we may even continue pressing cookbooks in the future. Risks & Challenges
      This will not be a short order(pun intended). We will have a long road ahead of us and we are still not in the clear from everything happening globally during this pandemic.
      We will use the funds to catch up and reinvent ourselves(a 3rd time) in order to adjust to the "new normal" of Covid-19. We are hoping to add a fryer and overhead extinguishing system to provide some fried goods, donuts and churros.  We will need to negotiate with debt collectors, property managers and our accounts. We will need to heavily market this cookbook and our bakery.  Melissa and I both come from extremely competitive marketing and sales backgrounds in the tech industry. We are capable of overcoming these hurdles and getting Sweet Alfas back on the map.  Other Ways You Can Help
      We are all in a crisis, not just businesses. Many people are out of work, struggling to pay their bills. We understand and wish the best for you and your families. There are non-monetary ways to help us out.
      Tell your siblings, parents, best friends and coworkers about this campaign. You can share our campaign on facebook and more using the Indiegogo share tools!

      Unfortunately, all rewards are physical/US Only right now.
      Also, they've chosen 'Flexible funding', but since they're at 45% already, with 29 days left, they have a decent chance of making it. 
       
      Me?
      I'm in it for $5(no perk pledge) because they make cookies...

      So here's Ettinstone, a tile system that should work with most other 25mm tile systems. It's magnetic, double sided, versatile, and super easy to build with. Also it's roughly about $1.20 per 2x2 tile before shipping at the lowest level, and about $1.00 per tile at the highest level. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1215751272/ettinstone/
       

       
      The tiles are made in ABS plastic, so it won't break easily either. :)
       
      The Gallant Goblin made a video that really shows off how quick it is to assemble, disassemble, and reassemble with this set, as well as showing how well it works with both Warlock and Dwarven Forge tiles. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qvehn-WzpjU
       
      Stretch goals at $18k and $26k for half walls(2x1") and quarter walls(2x0.5", AKA pillars/wall corners).
