Chalk me up as being in the "Sophie's Bounty" and "Sophie's Fortune" camp. They're such obvious choices that I think it's definitely the way to go. I mean, a lot of the names folks are coming up with are excellent, and I hope you all use those on your ships, but for an official Reaper product name, I think it's only right to name it after Sophie. :lol:

Like, I'm not going to riot or anything, but I'm pretty disappointed that this ship isn't likely to be named "Dark Maiden."

 

She's a ship that's been part of Reaper lore for twenty years at this point, she's already got a beautiful figurehead (several sculpts), she's a pirate ship, she's a GHOST pirate ship.

 

But I can see why crowdsourcing the official name is profitable for Reaper. I'm just a bit bummed out by it.

 

I am hoping that one of the first extra figureheads they make (assuming that possibility actually happens) is a new sculpt of Dark Maiden.

Boaty McBoatface!

 

Seriously, not sure if you saw it in the news ages ago but the UK had a public poll about naming a new science vessel.  The public overwhelmingly chose "Boaty McBoatface".  I can't help but think of this every time someone suggests a name for the ship.

 

Officials ultimately rejected the name for the main ship itself.  Instead they named it the extremely stuffy sounding "RRS Sir David Attenborough" but named one of its submersibles "Boaty McBoatface" instead.

 

Here's a link to the Wikipedia if interested.

Ron even mentioned it in the last Reaper Live.

      A co-author and I have started a venture and would appreciate you checking out our RPG supplement!! This is our first KS project, but I’ve been here on the forums for years. We’ve backed tons of projects and all well-versed in KS.
       
      Little secret…the project is named in homage to my favorite band. 😆
       
      Please scope out our project! See you at ReaperCon.

      They took a long time to come live with this one.......
       
      like their other one (Sombras) Reina Roja has chosen an artist with some just askew of normal surreal artwork to draw from.    His insta is here Gary Villarreal
       
      Looks like the only complaints on their previous KS (Sombras) were shipping delays and people who didn't seem to understand that they were ordering multipart resin models and were determined to kick up a storm about how this wasn't what they thought they were ordering.

      (August 27) Edit: Just finished reading the guidelines, so far I think I might not be violating any rules, except for the gif photo that I've posted here which I've taken down and replaced with a non-moving png 🙂 If I did misunderstand the guidelines please let me know so that I don't do this again. Thank you so much!

      Hello folks! I'm not sure if this post is allowed and if it's not, I can remove it right away. 🙂 
       
      Just wanted to ask for feedback on the box design of a game that I'm currently developing. Hoping to hear from y'all, most of you guys are pretty experienced in board/card games. Thanks so much! 🙂

      Given I have a few unplayed games sitting on my shelf, my will save has gotten pretty high on these.
