Samurai goblins just seem so wrong though.

Happy Bones 5 everyone! I’m way behind on this thread (page 126). I have a deadline on 10/15 which is really bogging down my catching up ability. Anyways, I saw this comment as I was taking a break and wanted to mention that I noticed with some of the comments a theme of one person liking a model(s) that other find not as appealing or different. I just wanted to say that I thought the Samurai goblins are super cool! Very much looking forward to them and I think it is neat that there are models that appeal more to some than to others.

I know it could all come screeching to a halt in the next week or two, but it really seems like Reaper has a runaway train on their hands with this Kickstarter.  There's a real high excitement with this one.   It will be wild to see where it ends up.  It could be historic! 


Agreed, I completely eat my words about this! 

After a strong start it felt boring while we were stuck on the 3rd map, it felt like it took forever - maybe it was completely subjective, since Daimyos and siege weapons weren't my thing - but I feel right now the hype is intense and it all goes nice and fast: I think I woke up today with Shavinra this morning so I've seen nothing less than 3 unlocks today, which at this point of the KS seems extraordinary! 

Let's hope shadow dragon can keep it going. I'll pass on this one, planning as I do to pledge for all five chromatics.

Maybe we’ll see Greek Odyssey or 2 tomorrow with a few new models in it?  Feels like it could be time for a core set upgrade tho ...


If it follows on any way the drawings on the map, it's possible the next tier (or "a" tier) on the Greek Odyssey is on that temple on the top of the lower half of the map. So, pretty far away :( 

I do think core should get some more stuff: I'm sure there's lots of pledgers who right now are limited to add-ons and expanions: let's make the core more attractive

the map drawings dont' mean anything, so dont' worry about that. they've told us that it's just a map, and hte images do not relate to the goal at that spot in any way


for instance, the asian dragon did not show up at the asian dragon icon on the map, but instead at a building icon

I mean, I’d love to see some more goodies thrown into the core set, but the big, cool optionals do seem to be driving big pledge volume.  If that keeps up, maybe it’s better if Reaper pushes back some core set additions.  We still have more than 3 weeks.

I saw people talking about a 15k backer goal in this thread.  Is that just speculation based on 5k/10k, or was that mentioned by Reaper at some point?


It’s  pictured in the core set on the Kickstarter page. 

Scroll down to the bottom of the Core Set photo and you’ll see the blank space with the title “15k backers”

      Another “large collection of miniatures” kickstarters, reminiscent of the recent Blacklist Games Fantasy kickstarters.


      I am tempted, even though it covers a lot of things we already have.

      Pixies, Wyrms, Demonicity – Three Mini Role-Playing Games
      Three ready-for-adventure mini-game boxed sets for your RPG game night, featuring the Tri-Stat System used in BESM Fourth Edition RPG.

      If you're looking for role-playing games that are concise enough to crack open and start playing right away, yet sufficiently robust and evocative to support longer campaign play as well, you've come to the right place.
      Welcome to the Kickstarter for the first three Tri-Stat System Mini-Game Boxed Sets – a new line of compact and complete role-playing adventure games that are compatible with Dyskami Publishing's flagship BESM Fourth Edition anime and manga RPG. Tri-Stat System creator Mark MacKinnon has distilled and customised the complete system into distinct streamlined versions for each of the three adventure games – targeting their specific genres and background settings in easy-to-understand boxed sets.
      Pixies, Wyrms, and Demonicity – it's time for your next great role-playing adventure!

      Pixies, Wyrms, and Demonicity – These boxed set RPGs are games of adventure, exploration, battle, heroism, romance, and imagination. Yet unlike in a traditional board game, the possibilities for exploration and action in these role-playing game are endless.
      Each of the three role-playing adventure games contains the following components:
      a 32-page full-colour rulebook that gives your group everything you need to play, with sections on character abilities, magical spells/paranormal powers, weapons and equipment, enemy encounters, items and equipment, and guidelines for integrating the Tri-Stat System game with the compatible BESM Fourth Edition RPG
      6 brief story scenarios so you can start playing adventures right away
      6 pre-generated player character sheet handouts, with game stats and illustration
      4 custom-etched dice specific to that boxed set
      You can pledge for one, two, or all three of these boxed sets during the Kickstarter.
      I know know nothing about these creators or the system, but I decided to back for Pixies entirely because of that picture of the corgi. 👀
