Wait...warehouse or boat? lol

 

I heard on the ReaperCon tour this year that they were expanding their facility significantly.  I don’t remember the sq. footage, but i think it was more than doubling their footprint.  They have a lot of undeveloped land, I think.

 

I guess they’re also building a boat?!  :poke:

I'm so excited to see what comes next, the Bones 5 enthusiasm train will be just the thing to break me out of my no painting slump. It's been a stressful summer and counter-intuitively I've barely touched my paints, just haven't been motivated, but I totally broke out a Bones 4 Troll to work on tonight!

Is it not time for the stick?

 

No, it is not time for a stick.  It is never time for a stick.  That kind of violence or implied violence is more counter productive.

 

Business Hours at Reaper HQ are 9 AM to 6 PM CST with lunch taken from 1 PM to 2 PM.

Reaper-on-call-24-7 is a ludicrous expectation.

Please try to remember your favorite Bryan also took nights, weekends and lunches during the campaigns.

 

Also, Ron will be much busier than Bryan ever was as he runs multiple departments and will be on the Forums significantly less than previous Campaign Project Leads were.

A new facility was purchased, almost next door to the current.  There is both office and warehouse space existing on the property but my understanding is some construction will also occur.

That voice definitely sounds like Kit and the first lady voice that asks a question is definitely Adrienne. I don't know about the second lady voice or the child voice.

I have to disagree.

It did not sound like Adrienne to me.

I suspect those are Kit's family.  He probably filmed it in the UK not in TX.

Good point, I was thinking they'd filmed it during Reapercon. You'd definitely know Adrienne's voice better than I do.

Alright, I'm in again. Only for a dollar as I don't see that much I want yet. And also since the wife has informed me I have north of 2k unpainted minis, IHO I don't need anymore. I do have to reluctantly admit she may have a point.

 

You have a count of unpainted miniatures?  I am afraid to actually count!

So Day 1 highlights for me:

Dungeon Dwellers

Troll Bridge

Aganzarax

Fire Giant

Dragon Bust

Catapult

 

Lowlights:

Most of the spell effects (though I like the disc)

Boulderkin

Stain Glass Golem

Kid Heroes

Townsfolk (they are just a bit too static for me)

 

All in all though very happy. Core Set still going to be great for me and there are a bunch of add one I want. Hard part will be figuring out the budget.

Sadly, this sounds like the communication issues from Bones 4 have not been addressed....

Thanks ladystorm - I knew it was mentioned on the tour, but was very fuzzy on the specifics.  Good to know there's already some usable space there as it looked like Reaper is pretty cramped in their current building.  I'll look forward to seeing how they've expanded next year on the 2020 ReaperCon tour.

 

I asked about overnight updates in the thread last night just because I've not done a kickstarter before.  I understand they're a small team and this kind of project stretches them pretty thin.  I'm totally ok with KS updates only during normal office hours.

 

It might help to post updates letting people know when they'll be taking time off, though.  I know Ron posted in the KS comments, but that's not very visible.  Adding something to the campaign text or as an official update might work better to get the word out and ensure people have more reasonable expectations.

 

Thanks for hanging in there during this craziness!  I can't imagine what it's like for the Reaper folks and forum admins right now!

      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.
