The Ghoulsbane would go really well with the Ghoul Queen encounter.....

I'll probably use it that way too.


For those of you wondering what it is, I will say that it was inspired by the sussurus from the '81 Fiend Folio, easily one of the most obscure old school monsters. I can see it fitting a few roles (eg popup skull pile, large vine horror, small tendriculous, etc). TBH I was caught up in the mood of the Halloween season, and I wanted to do something that would be horrifying - all those glowing eyes staring at you from the dark.....

I really love that monster! Thank you for making it ^_^

My baby will be 2 years old when this fulfills... is that too young to get her into painting them? :lol:

My kids both started to show an interest when they were four.  YMMV in either direction.

I'm willing to bet if she is into your paints at two years old, you probably won't be too thrilled...

Regarding the tentacles-and-eyes controversy, it seems to me that WotC was doing that whole OGL thing where whey were opening parts of D&D to the public to the extent that publishers could make third-party content more easily and so on, but there were specific things that they retained as their own hands-off-without-licensing permission, including a few specific monsters, one of which subsequently became something of an advertising mascot.  As long as other companies took sufficient effort to make a "not-at-all-that-monster-honestly" knock-off, such that it doesn't have the same name and doesn't exactly look the same to the degree that the public doesn't get confused, they would probably be able to fly it in under the legal radar.


Hence, the Eye Beast, which totally doesn't look like anything in any WotC/Hasbro monster manual today:










I've not seen whatever got hit with that C&D, but I'd be willing to bet it copied WotC/Hasbro's IP closely enough to arguably cause some confusion (which isn't hard to imagine, considering what was said earlier about the Kickstarter comments and the inability of many of the backers to simply read back a couple comments earlier or read the campaign's FAQ or main page for an answer....)

the worst examples ive seen , i think:


- Final Fantasy 2 IIRC, i think it was, has a boss called a marilith and its the same as the D&D one (the hindu inspired 6 armed snake tanar'ri demon)

- demon souls video game  -they literally have creatures called mind flayers, that look the same, use a psionic blast and if it hits you, you are stunned as they run over and eat your brain

Apparently the Pledge Manager is down for some, and not for others. I can't access it. 


Based on KS comments from ~7-8 hours ago, it seems the teased (not truly revealed) Hirelings set was added into the PM. 


not working for me either

      Anthropomorphic animals are not really my cup of tea, but these look nicely done.  I imagine someone here will be interested.

      Midlam keeps chugging new sets that are hard to resist.


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

      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.

      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.
