Reaper Bones 5: Enthusiasm and Commentary thread

Recommended Posts

Apparently today's that kind of day where I think about Otterfolk.

 

Will I be able to introduce Otterfolk as a core race in this ocean campaign that Bones 5 is leading me towards? Will Reaper have to make a full Otterfolk-themed expansion for Bones 6? And what about those Axolotl adventurers, will they also be limited to just those three incredibly cute figures? Will I forever only be able to have three NPCs of each of these incredibly crucial races?! What about Otterfolk clerics? Otterfolk construction workers building a dam? Otterfolk barbarians?! Otterfolk doxies?! Never mind, forget I said that last one! 

In addition to all that; I'm still not all that keen on the Mandupar Pass encounter, but for some reason that dwarf Sherpa really appeals to me. Worth waiting a few years.

I wish you could get that Beastman Shaman separately, guess he'll have to go on my retail release wish-list.

 

I also, somehow, didn't realise the Earth Scion was female.

That’s how I feel about the Dark Depths; I really just want the not-sahuagin and will pick them up retail. I also want a couple Nightgaunts from Chronoscope. Don’t really want anything from Brinewind.

I didn't realize the Earth Scion was female, either. It's not nearly so clear from the concept art.

I can't imagine not wanting Brinewind, and I've never run an ocean-based campaign in my life...

I wasn't very interested in Brinewind for a while. I can't really put my finger on why, it just didn't grab me.

 

But then my daughter saw the anthro pirates and our financial picture changed with my son no longer in daycare, so now we have it.

I’ll def get the Brinewind extras; the main expansion just isn’t my wheelhouse.

Do you guys think I could get half my money back selling the Chronoscope zombies and trailer? I have NO use for them and hate spending $50 just on the redone minis and robots...

I think a lot of that depends on how big that trailer ends up being.  With Reaper's quirky sizing of Kickstarter minis, there's no way to tell if it will end up being like the oversized Warchief Mumlak, or the diminutive Runehorn Hut...

 

It would be nice if we got a preview of it at some point.

 .. and added a bunch of the powerups to the 'want' list, because woofies are awesome. >.>

As a person that was disappointed on a few sizes from the last KS, I definitely can see why people NEED to see sizes before ordering. (& of course assurance, the size will stay the same when it finally reaches the people).

I think both Brinewind sets and the pirate ship were the first non-Core sets we grabbed.

 

Sort of the same way I immediately latched onto Dreadmere. ::):

 

Which reminds me - is the Dreadmere book still on the table?

 

The Auld Grump - heck, I'd back a Reaper Dreadmere Patreon.... :;,;:

You’ve got plenty of time for us to talk you into more spending. 

The update today says it fits on a 3 inch base, so I’d assume it’s about the same bulk as a one of the fire giants from Bones 4 with a tail thrown on. 

 

finally !   well 3" base is just too small for me.  I was hoping something more like Cthulhu.   

but from the price I doubted that would happen. 

 

If the PM closed to day I would be satisfied with my order. I mean sure I would love to drop another 80$ on expansions and dragons but all the must-haves are taken care of.

Count them and put a reasonable price on them compared to what's in the store right now.

Compare that trailer to a dumpster/shipping container model.

 

See what you come up with and you'll have your answer.

Granted, it was a painted 3D print of it, but they did show the Chronoscope airstream trailer on an episode of Reaper Live.  Let me go dig through my screenshots...

Life finally calmed down enough that I was able to make my first big order from the pledge manager.  Aside from ordering stuff for a friend, plus my own Core set and Shadows of Ravenhome, I hadn't been able to drop my budgeted amount into the PM each month, thanks to things like replacing hot water heaters, etc.  I was finally able to get at least one of everything I want from the KS (though I'll continue to drop money in each month to double and triple up on some things).

The second pirate ship is for a friend, but one of them will me mine!  So excited.  I bought a year's worth of out-of-print Dungeon Magazines after the Pirate Ship was revealed, so I can someday run the Savage Tide adventure path.  It'll be great.

      Just a fun little surprise I happened across earlier.  No pictures of the dice and it's ending today, but some really nice ones on their store and I've friends who own some so I thought I'd give it a go.

      About
      Welcome to the Great Wall draft page – the campaign is not live yet, but we will be gradually adding more and more information about the game here! We are incredibly excited to hear your feedback, so please let us know what you think. If it looks interesting to you - make sure to click the "Notify me on launch" button!
      The Great Wall is a new major board game from Awaken Realms (creators of Nemesis, Tainted Grail, Etherfields and many other acclaimed products). Players will take the roles of generals of an ancient oriental empire who lead the defence against ruthless hordes. You will need to gather allied advisors, manage your workers, recruit armies and, together with other players, raise and defend the Great Wall! As the game progresses, you will often need to co-operate or negotiate with other players, but make no mistake – there can be only one winner!
      This fresh worker (and soldier!) placement game for 1-4 players faces them with many difficult choices and often pushes them to interact with each other. You will be assigning your workers to eleven different locations, such as Tea House, Quarry, Messenger Post, or Barracks, using special Command cards that have additional effects. Production in locations activates ONLY when all their slots are filled, but filling them all by yourself can result in a penalty. On top of that, players can buy overseers who will give additional output every time a location becomes activated. This creates a lot of involving long- and short-term strategies.
       Each player starts with one unique General, characterized by their asymmetric power, as well as the production level. From there, you will further customize your economic engine and fine-tune your strategy by recruiting advisors who provide additional bonuses.
      Eventually, a Wall Defence phase beings, where players place previously build armies on Horde Cards – earning Honor (Victory points) and looting resources from the defeated troops. This requires smart management of three types of units: Archers, Spearmen and Cavalry. Players place these soldiers one by one, playing the Tactics cards that create another layer of interaction.
      Gain meditation by shooting with the Zen Archer, then spend meditation on a Cavalry Squad Leader to move your Cavalry around the battlefield faster, and – finally – finish off by getting extra Honor for each of the Cavalry’s engagements thanks to the Banner Holder. There are endless possibilities for great combos and memorable plays.
      On top of that, your Advisors and General might give your troops extra abilities, such as shooting twice or looting twice the resources!
      All of the above makes the Great Wall one of our most strategically involving designs that will be appreciated by many different groups of players: those who love euro-styled games with their intricate economies and engine-building, those who love over-the-table play, bargaining and negotiations – and finally, those who simply like to wage war on a beautiful map.
