Reaper Bones 5: Enthusiasm and Commentary thread

Recommended Posts

Ok, its close enough to the end that I feel comfortable going in.  Wave 15 should be pretty close to the last wave shipped.  Not to budget for Middle Daughter college visits next week and see how much more I can pledge.

Lucky!   Up here in in central Maryland it's low 40s!  Freeze warning for tomorrow.

Meanwhile, I moved to central Texas from Maryland partly for the usual heat and it's currently 29. :upside:

But you are much closer to Denton than I am. No way I can even consider the wrap party tomorrow. ::(:

There been any recent mention of Chronoscope anywhere?  Between the stress of moving and the lack of interest in the current expansions, I've had trouble keeping up on things.

Be about the same as me making a trip to Miami. 3.5 hour drive, roughly. Would probably drive up in the evening, overnight in a motel, enjoy the party,  overnight again, drive back Sunday morning.

 

Basically what I did for Shark Con in Aug

I'm not pledging my cash limit for the KS,

instead, I am maximizing my fun, by pledging an amount that covers all my Must-Have add-ons and the doubles I want from the core. 

that way I get to decide hour by hour if I really need each new unlock. 

ill delay the core set purchase for another month- I had a spreadsheet that was calculating how much the coreset was worth to me - it now just says YES instead of numbers. 

My starting budget was 200.  so far I'm still on target.

 

I have regretted buying expansions in the past, so I will punt on that decision but if I don't get dark depths than the Goroloth and a dragon turtle from KS4 become must haves.

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

Too big! Too big! Do not want!!

There's an expansion and an encounter.. we just haven't gotten to them yet..

Hopefully we get to them, and they are interesting at least.  Otherwise I guess I'm getting 2 ships......
I'll try to keep an eye on the KS as it counts down but tomorrow is a pack all the everythings that have avoiding being packed until now day....

Yep! I headed up to Denton for ReaperCon this year but probably will have to skip the wrap party for personal reasons.

 

That rose gold, though...

Quick question if anyone knows. Is ReaperCon always in the Aug/Sept timeframe?  My company has offices in Austin.  My plan would be to take a trip to Austin then drive up to Denton for the Con and go home via Dallas Airport.  It is probably the only way I would ever get to go.  I am in Austin a few times a year anyway but for 2020 I can change my schedule so the two happen at the same time.

      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.

      Saw this mentioned in one of my feeds this morning. Looks quite interesting and is already very funded, with a load of stretch goals unlocked

      Altered Carbon: The Role Playing Game
       
      Official tabletop RPG based on the hit neo-noir cyberpunk Netflix series and award-winning novel of the same name.
       

       
      Working alongside Skydance Television and the incredible team behind the hit Netflix TV series, we’re excited to immerse you in the neon-drenched cyberpunk sandbox of Altered Carbon with our official tabletop RPG.
       

       
      In this transhumanist vision of the future, the human mind is nothing more than digital code – Digital Human Freight – saved and stored in a Cortical Stack, advanced technology that allows you to “re-sleeve” your entire consciousness into a new body. You can wear any body you can afford, transmit your mind across the cosmos in an instant, and, if you’ve got the credits and political cachet, you can re-sleeve time and again for centuries, accumulating enough wealth and power over the millennia to become the societal equivalent of an immortal god.
       
      Whereas character death is a natural occurrence and ever-present threat in tabletop RPGs, Altered Carbon: The Role Playing Game offers a unique angle on the concept. As opposed to creating a brand new character, players will have the opportunity to transfer their character’s consciousness, memories, and experiences into new Sleeves post-death… but at a cost.
       
      Mind you, immortality is not invincibility. Losing a Sleeve is a life-altering setback, and “Real Death” awaits anyone whose Stack is destroyed. That being said, Sleeves introduce their own refreshing challenges to players and storytellers alike. Augmentations can instantly upgrade your athleticism, but a world-class surgeon in an unadjusted Sleeve can botch a basic procedure. The possibilities for characters and campaigns may change from one Sleeve to the next… making long-term gameplay more versatile, while empowering the story to steer character advancement at its own pace.
       
       
       
       
      Just about a day left on this. I just learned of it today, and I've been suckered in for a book and a GM screen. Big fan of the series, intrigued by the actual game, so.
