Reaper Bones 5: Enthusiasm and Commentary thread

Recommended Posts

About all this talk about the kids, it also bears mentioning:

 

Both updates today (on a Saturday!) have been great! A further-ahead stretch goal to cover the weekend, timely updates to the KS front project page (including another page of the comic! Wooohooo!), and new scale images (which will also apparently be available from Reaper's website soon).

 

While I'd still personally like to see more of a Reaper presence in this thread, I'm actually really happy with what this weekend has brought. Seems like they're getting caught up on the day 1 aftermath!

Bridge is still showing 2 styles of paving. Asked about it in update comments.

My guess would be because it's the same 3D print that's been shown every time. Someone mentioned they did it purposefully to gauge people's opinions of which they liked better during ReaperCon.

With everything else they have to do during KS season (including run their actual business) I don't really expect much presence in the thread as long as there are consistent updates elsewhere.

Totally agreed.

It's okay, already got a back story for it.

 

The Bridge of Stout-Lager

 

This bridge exists on a disused former trade road that once ran between the Dwarven mountains and the Goblin plains. It was built during the reigns of High King Snorri "Boilermaker" Arnulfson and Grand Biggest Boss Yag "Fartflinger" Yagsprog as a cooperative effort to attempt to establish trading relationships between the Dwarf and Goblin domains. All went well, with separate Dwarf and Goblin crews working toward a common meeting point at the river crossing now known as "Busted Keg" by the Goblins and referred to only obliquely in Dwarven records as "The site of the 347th Goblin atrocity". 

 

Historians have managed to reconstruct some of the occurrences that led to what is now called the "52nd Dwarf-Goblin War". Apparently, the two competing crews reached the crossing at the same time, and began constructing the bridge. The Goblins, more numerous but haphazard, paved their side of the bridge in traditional Goblin style, using diagonal rows of rounded pavers. The Dwarves, a smaller but more efficient crew, laid their pavers with typical Dwarven precision, using squared pavers in neat horizontal rows.

 

Both crews completed their work at roughly the same time and met in the middle to bless the final paver with a ceremonial baptism of their chosen potables. The

goblins brought a large keg of "Buglip's Really Old Peculiar Funky Fungus Lager", while the Dwarves brought out an even larger barrel of "Gut Gutbusterson's XXXXXX Moshroom Stout". The crewleaders each filled a large mug with their beverage and solemnly exchanged them for the ritual of "Quaffing and Libation".

 

That is where it all went horribly wrong. The Dwarf crewleader was the first to spit out his huge gulp of Goblin lager, shouting "This tastes like pig urine wrung out of a sweaty gambeson. Are you trying to poison me?!!" The Goblin crew leader responded, saying that the Dwarf stout was "Like trying to drink mud mixed with the droppings of several incontinent goats". Stronger words were soon exchanged, with things rapidly degenerating to the point of the final act of disrespect. 

 

It is not clear who did it to whom, but both sides agree that one crewleader grabbed the other and stuffed them head first into their opponents keg, Getting that crewleader ridiculously drunk, and causing the keg to eventually burst. As both races take their drinking very seriously, there was no possible turning back from this final atrocity.

 

Thus we have the abandoned Bridge of Stout-Lager at Busted Keg crossing.

      I checked out the Scooby Doo cooperative game play looks like something fun to play with the kids (since he will probably be 10 when it delivers )

      Here's a kickstarter that I thought looked particularly cool - they're flat-based tiles with magnets that can be reconfigured anyway you want. The video in particular looks pretty cool. Already completely funded. Prices are a bit high and ultimately the system's not for me, but I thought perhaps some others might be interested. :)

      Story
      The Death Knight Rises
      To me there's only one true fallen paladin who, deceived by the darkest forces, broke his oath and became a paragon of hatred and terror. But, I am into classic TTRPGs, so I wanted to rethink the concept. Boris Woloszyn, amazing sculptor that he is, took over and has transformed this idea into a remarkable sets of miniatures.
        The Miniatures
      There are only two. The Minion is 32mm scale and the Fallen Paladin measures 40mm to the top of his head.They will get cast in the crispest of resins. They come unassembled and without bases. 
        The Paladin - doing a gentle spin
       PLAY The Minions
      The Pledge Levels
      There are two. Ones comes with only the Death Knight, the other comes with the Death Knight and two minions.
      The price for only the Death Knight is 15CA$, the set with 1 Death Knight and 2 minions is 35CA$ (less than 30US$). 
      Backerkit will charge max. 14CA$ for postage on top of that.
        Stretch Goals
      We have one and I will unlock it if we reach 10K.
        Add-On's
      We will open a backer kit pledge manager for those that want some extra minis, and we make sure to drop all the suitable Boris stuff in there too.
       
      I want to give you a little preview what to expect in terms of add-on's.
       
      There will be this well known lot sculpted by Boris. 10C$ each. (In case you want to top up to find out what 10K will bring)
      And there will be some 3D printed things (20 Microns, they paint like casts).
       
      1. This lad and his little buddy, because dwarves and gobbos. 8CA$
      2. 3 Halflings on a rampage. 2 female 1 male, because. Also - kettle jump pack. The pacK of 3 plus 2 steam bases will be 20 C$
      I still have more to throw into the mix, but I need to re-watch that episode now.  
       
      Thanks again!
