Reaper Bones 5: Enthusiasm and Commentary thread

Recommended Posts

I wonder what the reaction would have been if there were dino-people wearing togas added to the Greek Expansion or if we have yet to see dino-people waving cutlasses around while wearing eye-patches and parrots on their shoulders?

I've got this sudden twisted image of a party of Adventurers in a boat on a calm bayou suddenly getting swept down a gaping stonework opening and showing up in an alternate world version of Pirates of The Caribbean.  They see the first showroom with the skeletal pirates in poses as an illusion and the visions of "the curs-ed treasure" as a possible hint of the bounty that may await them. The real adventure starts when they hit the second showroom where the Reaper Frigate is shelling the town.

The adventurers land and prepare to repel the invading crew of "salty old pirates"..........

700 Backers to 17,745 and loot golem.

 

I have a feeling tonight we'll reach that loot golem yet!  I haven't even been paying attention to it before now, but I seem to remember some pessimism from backers who thought we'd never be able to unlock them, and assumed they might be right.  Looking at it now, I have a pretty good feeling about it for those who've been looking forward to it!

They are such great minis though... They deserve more love!

 

I'm not a fan, and I kind of feel bad about that, since they've had some really vocal detractors, including me.  As a running gag, I'm kind of warming up to them!

Some of us are at the $1 level because we can’t afford to put a lot of money in it now, and hope to add more in the pledge manager this year. I want most of the stuff on the KS. I can afford a dragon. 

 

Don't get me wrong - I hope I don't sound like I'm throwing all $1 backers some shade.  It's just that it looked like a lot of the negative comments were coming from people who were essentially moaning about how they're glad they only backed for $1, because they don't like anything... that might have changed since then with all the stuff revealed over the last day or two, but I figure if they aren't happy by now, they never will be, and it's time for them to take the moaning and negativity elsewhere and free up some elbow-room for people who actually are excited to be here.

 

In any event, there's still a few hundred $1 slots left - I'd like to think most of the folks who join up in the final 48 hours are joining in for at least $40 worth of cool stuff to reach stretch goals with (there are over a thousand $40 slots left!)

That mousling looks like he could kill Sir Forscale by sitting on him.  I really hope they make them smaller.

Whatever else I can say about the dino-people, they aren't boring! 

 

@Green Eyed Monster's idea of a group of adventurers in a boat getting swept into a weird land full of goofy dinosaur people gets me thinking of "Land of the Lost", which makes me want to change the lyrics to the song into something about Dino People, but I can't concentrate on it because now I want some not-Sleestaks!

Same here. 

I have a feeling that there is going to be some ongoing uproar about their size for the entire campaign, with two camps - those who want them to match the rest of the mouslings and those who want them chibi sized.

I see the Reapercon Mouseling as somewhere between the mouselings we've come to know and love [at least that's the way some of us feel about them] and the chibi figures.

It's definitely on a scale that is easier for aging eyes to paint.

And some of us woke to a cold house, and aren't sure what the repair/replace situation will be like.

 

I figure I can at least get the new paints, maybe an encounter or two, depending on how the situation pans out.

I'm in at the $1 pledge because that was the only real option at the time that wasn't $120 USD minimum (or like, $158ish CAD...) 

 

I finally pledged at $120 today because realistically I know I'll spend more than that eventually. Not the best time for it but what the hey. I'm wrestling more with what to get when the Battletech pledge manager opens. Want to up that pledge but don't know if I should right away. If it's delayed long enough I have more money coming in December.

Speaking of aging eyes and mouslings, might I remind people of these :)

My eyes just turned 50  when this was done BTW:(

      Story
        Depending on the amount of orders received for each project, delivery dates might vary. The initial shipment dates indicated are not final, and even though we're committed to giving all our customers the best service we can, sometimes the amount of orders received might make the final shipment date vary compared to our initial estimates. Please keep this possibility in mind before placing your order.
      Regarding both the bundles and the stretch goals described above, no swaps of model of any kind are allowed. Therefore, please don’t ask us to swap any stretch goal with other add-ons or any perk models with other miniatures, because that cannot be done.
      We created something for those who like to not take themselves too seriously, for those who would like to relax while painting - with less details, but by no means not enough of them - for those who love their minis with a side dose of cuteness overload and, finally, for those who might have children to introduce to miniature gaming, by giving all of these people something that players will love (or hate, as the case may be) no matter their age!
      Wait a minute… delivery estimated after only two week after the campaign ends? A Greebo campaign?!
      Oh yes, and here’s why: because we’ve started production already! We’re convinced that we can reach the campaign goal, at the least, and that’s why we started the manufacturing process of everything. Therefore, the second you complete your Pledge Manager (let us remind all of you, if you don’t complete it, there will be no shipment, so do it!) your package will be processed and sent, just like that.
      We want to open and close this campaign in record time, and we’re confident that we can do it!

      Kobolds Vs. Goblins is a game designed, tested, built and played by my son Max and me (You saw him in the video).  The concept was something we came up with for a contest on The Game Crafter using roll & write mechanics.  What we ended up making was a fast and fun game that can be played by people of any age.  It's quick and easy to learn and setup is as easy as opening the box. 
       Max and I decided that people shouldn't be forced to buy our game just to play it.  So, you are free to download the full color print and play version of the game using this link.   FREE PRINT AND PLAY  (including solo mode) You'll need 6 normal D6 dice and something to mark the paper.  (For prototyping, we used clear cubes, but pencil with eraser will work also)
       
       
       






      I'll admit... I have no idea how those of you who share KS from others include all the details and fancy stuff. I clearly didn't do this correctly. Munchkin Metropolis traditionally does woodcrafting, and I've been very satisfied with the quality and production time that's come from my prior interactions with him. Figured I'd try and get the word out about his current KS, which he developed with his son.

      A message from Secret Weapon:
       
      Big news time everyone!
      As many of our pledgers know, we need to adjust the Kickstarter - On the positive, we have a good amount of backers and we know that MANY of you are waiting to up your pledges. We have had a really positive response to the product itself, and lots of interest on the customer and retail side. We deeply appreciate this and your support.
      BUT - we have a good amount of backers who are opting to wait on their $1 pledge. This is entirely our fault. We caused this when we locked our core offering behind stretch goals. There is no single item that is core. ALL the options are core. We made it so that many of you had to wait around to buy what you already knew they wanted.
      That's a big boo boo, but it was made with the best of intentions. The system was set up so that there was no mandatory amount, and you added what you wanted and nothing more. We thought that this was better for the customer, but it quickly became obvious the vast majority of backers want jump-in points at set amounts like a usual KS... and weren't entirely sure about a pledge manager that was open during the campaign.
      So, what are we going to do to fix this for you?
      We are going to close the campaign, and relaunch it next week. That sucks and it's embarrassing. But ultimately everything else that happens is great for EVERYONE, because this is what happens next:
      1.) ALL themes will be shown and unlocked right off the bat. If you want Urban Streets or Infinity, you just go get it, no hoops or delays to choosing what you want. You also know exactly what is on offer.
      2.) There will be pledge levels: $50(+), $100(+) and $200(+). The 100 dollar + level will include a set of 3 weathering pigments (really really good ones too - Burning Sands, Dark Earth, and Rust Orange), and the 200 dollar + level will be the pigment set, and a set of 3 genuinely awesome paints. Secret Weapon's Rubber Highlight, Rubber and Tire Black, our most popular colors! At the end of the campaign you will use the Pledge Manager, as usual, to make whatever specific choices you want based on your KS pledge. The Pledge Manger will be available during the campaign for those that would like help figuring out a total pledge level, but that is optional, and you can wait until the end of the campaign to sign up.
      3.) Each of the $50(+), $100(+) and $200(+) pledge levels will have 3 shipping zone options
      Americas, Europe (NOT UK)
      AU, NZ, Asia, Pacific
      United Kingdom (NOT Europe)
      4.) Any extra themes that are developed during the course of the KS will be added immediately, no stretch, we just give you the option as soon as it is available.
      There will be 17 themes live at the time of launch, which doesn't count the licensed product from Corvus Belli and CMON Zombiecide.
