Ghouls! Ghouls that aren't ugly and hulking and rotten! Ghouls that look like the ones I throw at my players! [Yoink]




Also I'm in for Chronoscope. The first one wasn't hitting for me (suddenly, random Santa :blink:) but the next two bits are muuuuch better :B):

This mad dash at the end is driving me insane! Still so much I would like to see, of things teased at reaper con! I saw in an above spreadsheet the dragons are gargantuan sized (4 inch base), is that the case? Could have sworn they were on 3 inch bases... This alone may make me need to collect the set of Chromatics in PM...

The Bases ARE 3" diameter circles (generally).  However, these dragons hang over the edges so much that they will pass for Gargantuan compared to any other D&D dragon mini's that you find produced on behalf of WotC.  I plan to mount all of them on 100mm bases, off-center so as to minimize their low-elevation overhang.


The Ghoul Pit looks awesome.  I'm always up for more standing stones.  And a stone sacrificial altar?  Yes! (I know there is an earlier bones sacrificial altar with runes; that one is also awesome).


The Ghouls, to me, will easily pass for hags.  I'll probably paint them as Green Hags.  The Ghoul Queen could be a Night Hag, or some fiendish/half-fiend something (half-fiend hag, tiefling, etc.)


I'm not really into modern stuff (though I have run some d20 Modern in the past), but I do play in a Call of Cthulhu game.  I'm actually impressed with Chronoscope enough that I might just end up throwing one on in the PM next summer.  Terminators, other war bots, post apoc heroes, and pulp/steampunk... I'm in this KS for D&D mini's... But I think painting a few of those steam punk mini's would be fun just for the sake of painting them.

They are on 3" bases, but they are so much bigger than their bases I think it's easy to qualify them as Gargantuan in D&D terms.

The expansion Shadows of RavenHome sounds interesting.


I wish!  Still, this Ravenloft-lover has a feeling he will REALLY like the Ravenhome encounter...

Mine is over $1,000 (it is my first Kickstarter, though)

Speaking of a life-long Ravenloft fan… yes. Yes it does.


Right there with ya.


Random other thought.  I really thing the Mega-Mutant that was previewed the other day on Twitch could fairly easily pass as a Goliath for D&D.  Just cut/file off the tire tread of his shoulder pad (or whatever it is), and fill any mechanical screw heads (like in the hammer) with GreenStuff and I think he'd pass pretty well with the right paint job.


Random thought 2:  There is some Walking Dead skirmish game that people have been loving the last year or two.  The Chronoscope part 2 seems like a purposeful targeting at that market.

So I won one of the Reaper Giveaways from last weeks Live episode and I still haven't received an email back from Justin saying my shipping details were received and now they've moved on to this weeks giveaway winners...does anyone know if they normally respond to the emails or is the week long delay just because of the insanity of the kickstarter? I'm just worried it will fall through the cracks and I won't get sent my goodies haha

      Pixies, Wyrms, Demonicity – Three Mini Role-Playing Games
      Three ready-for-adventure mini-game boxed sets for your RPG game night, featuring the Tri-Stat System used in BESM Fourth Edition RPG.

      If you're looking for role-playing games that are concise enough to crack open and start playing right away, yet sufficiently robust and evocative to support longer campaign play as well, you've come to the right place.
      Welcome to the Kickstarter for the first three Tri-Stat System Mini-Game Boxed Sets – a new line of compact and complete role-playing adventure games that are compatible with Dyskami Publishing's flagship BESM Fourth Edition anime and manga RPG. Tri-Stat System creator Mark MacKinnon has distilled and customised the complete system into distinct streamlined versions for each of the three adventure games – targeting their specific genres and background settings in easy-to-understand boxed sets.
      Pixies, Wyrms, and Demonicity – it's time for your next great role-playing adventure!

      Pixies, Wyrms, and Demonicity – These boxed set RPGs are games of adventure, exploration, battle, heroism, romance, and imagination. Yet unlike in a traditional board game, the possibilities for exploration and action in these role-playing game are endless.
      Each of the three role-playing adventure games contains the following components:
      a 32-page full-colour rulebook that gives your group everything you need to play, with sections on character abilities, magical spells/paranormal powers, weapons and equipment, enemy encounters, items and equipment, and guidelines for integrating the Tri-Stat System game with the compatible BESM Fourth Edition RPG
      6 brief story scenarios so you can start playing adventures right away
      6 pre-generated player character sheet handouts, with game stats and illustration
      4 custom-etched dice specific to that boxed set
      You can pledge for one, two, or all three of these boxed sets during the Kickstarter.
      I know know nothing about these creators or the system, but I decided to back for Pixies entirely because of that picture of the corgi. 👀
