Reaper Bones 5: Enthusiasm and Commentary thread

Recommended Posts

Few things from the stream...

 

They said the Chronoscope expansion (encounter?) should have cryo tanks.  They will be trying to get more chronoscope information available tomorrow.  There will be a chronoscope encounter.

 

Dark depths will have more mermaid people included "and some other stuff."  Pretty obvious and vague.

 

Also sounded like they didn't have a seventh map ready but could get one up if needed - even if it's "stick figures."  lol

 

They're still looking for ship names and request people submit ideas on facebook, comments and presumably here also.

 

There may be an art book made available, no real details and it sounded like that information was based on an offhand "yes" from Ron.  Not sure if they meant within the kickstarter or after (I assume after).

Today was a healthy uptick in activity.

As @ksbsnowowl mentioned, pledging according to kicktraq was over $60k today, almost double the $32k from yesterday.

 

Look at the next bar though - the first hour of Kicktraq’s Oct 30 (which is 11pm - midnight Oct 29th, Reaper Standard Time) is already at $8500.

 

Backers increased by 161 today, which is more than any day in over 2 weeks.  There’s also a big spike in KS comment activity.

 

I think this is the inflection point, and we’ll see acceleration in pledging activity through the end.  There are 3 full days, and up until noon on the 4th one to the end of the campaign.

 

Lets look back at where Bones 4 was at this point:

B8DD58E3-C79F-4725-A777-2EECB804FCEE.png.920b7d7aaf1f25d721b6ade25893cfeb.png

With the same time remaining, B4 went on to raise an additional $1.09 million, and added over 3200 backers!  That 2 day reminder email that others have mentioned went out during the 3rd to last bar in the graphs above - right when they went bananas.

 

B5 has already raised about $400k more than B4 had at the same point, and already has more backers that B4 finished with.

 

B4 backers ended up pledging an average of $188, and we’re at $144 right now.

 

If B5 raises the same amount of money in the last days as B4, it would end up at $3.51M.  I still think it’s going to to better though.  We haven’t seen the rush yet - that’s going to start on Thursday, and will likely bring in thousands more backers, and existing backers will increase pledges once they see all the cool things.  I still think we might hit $4M.

 

Like I said before, that would take us close to the end of 8 maps like the ones we’ve seen.  With unlocks at $50k on average, that would be 32 more unlocks.  Plenty for a couple more expansions, dragons, and who knows what else they’ll pull out of their hats (I hope they have a lot of stuff in their hats)!

 

EDIT:  I took a look at the Bones 4 maps, and it looks like once they got into the last few days they couldn’t keep up.  Instead of having a goal for each unlock they started unlocking multiple things and spread out the goals.  If the same happens here, we probably won’t see 8 maps, but will unlock as many or more stretch goals.

I noticed when looking through the compiled previews in the now locked pre- bones 5 enthusiasm thread that there is at least one mermaid that was previewed that we haven't seen in the campaign yet

I vaguely recall three pairs that were shown on Reaper Live in mid-September.  I think the last part will have a Mermaid King and a Mermaid Princess.

I think there are 6 in total - 3 of each gender.  We’ve seen pairs with tridents and spears, but there are still a king and queen to come, I think.

 

Heres the post with the pics:

Yep, that thing has been in the back of my mind, wondering when it would appear. 

 

The fact it is greenstuff (and appears to be in the same style as the ghoul cult bone pit... Bob Rodolfi?) makes me think it is part of the ghoul cult (maybe the bone pit is a separate center piece?)

 

But, the fact that the yeti shrine encounter is supposed to be the biggest, most expensive encounter set, tells me that is not actually the case. 

 

So... I've got no clue.

The more I look at that Yeti temple the more I think I could use the scenery for my Nippon Project, Paint it more in an Asian Dragin / Foo Dog Style, maybe combine it with the Portal to create a magical place where the ONI come from.

 

The Yeti and the Leopards could be part of my Horde of the North Project ( why didn't I think of that earlier?) The Dwarf is just food.

What do you guys and gals think about using the Mandupar Pass with the Bones 4 Gorillas?  I just finished painting our two cores worth of Gorillas and am wondering if it's worth picking up this encounter.  Can't decide if those Yeti would look appropriate alongside the B4 Gorillas.  Would appreciate any thoughts.

      I skipped on the last gnome one, but the whimsical fancifulness of this one has got me hooked.

      More villagers for your town!
       
      Many of these poses are unique and, afaik, unavailable elsewhere.
       
      All In Pledge shows all sets available in this KS. Sets and smaller bundlers are available, and sets from the previous Villagers KS are available now from the creator's website.
