Reaper Bones 5: Enthusiasm and Commentary thread


Recommended Posts

@dschumm Here is a link to me posting the screenshot of the launch. Two posts below it is a screenshot of Reaper Live where they show Sir Forscale with the Dreadmere rowboat.

FYI - the rowboat itself, not counting the pole w/ the lantern, is 3" long.

For those looking at the size of the ship, I did a rough estimate of overall dimensions based on the renders and the provided scale, and compared those to the Falling Star by WizKids. It is going to be HUGE.

Is each red or blue square an inch?

I also did an overlay of a picture of someone holding a WizKid ship versus a Reaper estimate, but it is a WoTC copyrighted picture. Not sure if I can post it here.

 

Edit: based on feedback, will post it.

So the Wiz Kid ship is a 20-Gun Brigantine? 

 

Chris Lewis has modeled up a 30-Gun Sloop of War.

Yep.  When we moved 3 years ago, one of the wish list items was me being able to have a dedicated gaming space.  We found a great place with a pool table area that got repurposed into my gaming area. I did a whole thread on it here

 

 

So we need 15 new backers now to match Bones 4. Think we can do that during Bones Live?

So Reaper is declaring an Arms Race with Wizkids?

 

I would expect the Reaper ship to be the better sailer since it carries much more canvass. 

 

They could be about evenly matched in firepower. It would depend on what each ship is armed with. Ten 24 pounders in the broadside against Nine 18 pounders and six 9 pounders would be roughly even.

Sadly, it is not the daily Twitch feed we have gotten during the KS period that has given us the "doubting Thomas" attitude. In the months previous on Reaper Live, Ron especially has made it quite clear that he enjoys baiting the audience by teases and sometimes rather sophomoric acts. So that is why many of us are guilty of little faith.

 

One person calls it baiting another calls it promoting...there isn’t a fine line between them. Kind of a blurry mess where you’d like to have a line.

Its difficult to win an arms race when you're two years behind.

The Soviets managed to keep up and pull ahead a few times. sputnik, Yuri Gagarin, Foxbat. There is an itneresting take on this in the historical science fiction series "Worldwar/Colonization" by Harry Turtledove.

One of the CAV guys has insanely epic and large 3D mountain maps to play on. 

 

As for ships, if we're putting requests in I want a Bluenose, because, well.  Reasons.   That and the teased small ships.  I'm looking forward to getting a few of those...

A Sloop of War, a Cog, a Galley, and a Drakkar would complete my list. Dwarven Ironclads I "think" I could scratch build.

      DCC Dying Earth
       
      A DCC RPG boxed set, officially licensed by the estate of Jack Vance. Adventure with IOUN Stones and The Excellent Prismatic Spray!
       





       
      Yikes, the resolution did not hold. I tried. Just click the link lol.
       
       
      Thinking about doing this one; while I found Vance kinda torturous to read, the world is fantastically fun. And I think it'd work really well with the good things I've heard about DCC, so I could give that a try in general.

      Hi everyone, I wanted to share that we have just launched the third Dunkeldorf Kickstarter! Our last Kickstarter was focusing on "The Prancing Peacock" more or less a full tavern setting. 

      Our new Kickstarter still focuses on the town of Dunkeldorf, but this time it's all about a Brewer "Sven Wentzel" who's also the leader of a ruthless gang of thugs. There's also more focus on the mutants that dwell in the sewers beneath the town. Finally, the third "Faction" for this campaign is Witch Hunters and their Hired Swords who are en route towards Dunkeldorf to root out the mutants they've heard continued rumours about. 

      The Kickstarter can be found here: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/kinggames/the-kingpin-of-dunkeldorf - With our last 2 campaigns we unlocked a lot of Stretch Goals and included a bunch of extra free miniatures, accessories and pets and we hope to achieve the same this time! 🙂

      One of my fellow party members is publishing their first adventure path on KS!
       
      "Lament of The Widow is a tale of thrilling mystery and cosmic horror, spanning over 20 elegantly appointed and thoroughly haunted rooms in the labyrinthine world of Moorehouse, each of which contains the potential for rich rewards, powerful magical items, or painful, agonizing failure. Behind our beautifully illustrated cover, players and Game Masters alike will be thrilled to find over 100 pages of carefully crafted maps, incredible illustrations, and detailed descriptions, as well as a new setting-appropriate background option,  brand new magic items, an update to a classic tabletop monster, and an array of original creatures created just for this setting, all brought to life by our passionate, talented team of artists. Will you brave the perils of the Infinite Manor, unravel its secrets and escape with your lives? Or will you remain forevermore within its halls, trapped in a cycle of suffering and torment without end? The choice is yours...if you have the strength to make it."
       
      It's got some really great art and cool monster concepts! Dalimar is pretty amazingly creative, too - I have 0 doubts it's going to be an awesome adventure.
