Reaper Bones 5: Enthusiasm and Commentary thread


Recommended Posts

Not that i don't empathize with all the talk about taxes and the difficulties Reaper may have with worldwide distribution, but i thought it a good idea to post something in a different direction. 

 

Looks like their freight containers are still showing on time for landing to port March 23rd.  Now, this will be heavily dependent on the ports getting it unloaded and processed.  There's still heavy congestion, so we'll have to see how this goes over the next week, but I'm still optimistic.

How many containers are there? If that's the last of them, then the end is in sight for getting fulfillment rolling.

I have asked, and pushing for a post to be made Monday or sometime next week, with more info regarding the EU/UK situation. Will likely be in video format/written in a Ks update. 

 

Awesome, thank you!

Ugh. The forum update mucked up all the formatting. Everyone’s avatars are obscuring their user names, and the beginning text of their posts is hanging in front of their avatars...

 

Back on topic, has anyone started taking bets (fun, non monetary) on when all the containers of Bones 5 will make it thru port?

 

I’m expecting a minor delay at this point. Hopefully we’ll get our packages by around the first of June.

Well, this is...different...

 

The info bar down the right is interesting, but I don't know if it adds much.  Not really anything I need to know.

 

By the way, congrats on top poster status @ksbsnowowl!   It's been a hard fought contest, but it's not over yet! :lol:::P::ph34r:

Not a fan of the new Forum format personally, but I resist change in all forms. 

 

There have been big chunks of the last year where I haven't thought about Bones V at all, but now that it is happening Soontm my excitement is almost palpable. Funny how that works.

Good news is, that container is showing "discharged" as of the 21st. Yay!  It's stateside.  

 

On a side note, this new formatting is making it super difficult for me to navigate.  I can't see an alarm bell for notifications and can't tag a few lines of someone's post because it's odd overlapping the avatar.  Also someone's name is covered by their avatar, too.  Must fix!  I have no idea how it looks on pc, but on Android for my phone, it's terrible.

The good news is that Kit has mentioned in another thread that the forum format is due to something getting broken in an upgrade, and he's working on fixing it.

The bad news is that we don't know how long this will take

As to Bones V, I'm still ticked off that in AU we've been charged as if it was being shipped from the US, but we're having it shipped directly from AU without going through the US first.

That said, I am looking forward to receiving my items, whenever that may be, and this time round they may actually get painted

Past night they talked about the EU situation on Twitch (...).
They said that after their investigations they think that EU backers will need to pay a 3-6% customs charge plus a possible 6 Euro shipping fee. 

Well... I can assure you that this is totally wrong: the 3-6% is just in case they believe that all those plastic piece are toys for personal use; also the 6€ shipping fee is just the base; it depends by many factor like: how big and heavy is the box, how far they have to send it, and so on. In my case is 36€ IF it will stay under 10 kilos (which probably wouldn't).
Also don't forget about the ordeal we have to go through and the time we gonna lost.
Again it's not about VAT, and Reaper absolutely underestimate the fees.

Also... on Twitch? Really? :upside:

      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.

      Hi everyone, I wanted to share that we have just launched the third Dunkeldorf Kickstarter! Our last Kickstarter was focusing on "The Prancing Peacock" more or less a full tavern setting. 

      Our new Kickstarter still focuses on the town of Dunkeldorf, but this time it's all about a Brewer "Sven Wentzel" who's also the leader of a ruthless gang of thugs. There's also more focus on the mutants that dwell in the sewers beneath the town. Finally, the third "Faction" for this campaign is Witch Hunters and their Hired Swords who are en route towards Dunkeldorf to root out the mutants they've heard continued rumours about. 

      The Kickstarter can be found here: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/kinggames/the-kingpin-of-dunkeldorf - With our last 2 campaigns we unlocked a lot of Stretch Goals and included a bunch of extra free miniatures, accessories and pets and we hope to achieve the same this time! 🙂

      One of my fellow party members is publishing their first adventure path on KS!
       
      "Lament of The Widow is a tale of thrilling mystery and cosmic horror, spanning over 20 elegantly appointed and thoroughly haunted rooms in the labyrinthine world of Moorehouse, each of which contains the potential for rich rewards, powerful magical items, or painful, agonizing failure. Behind our beautifully illustrated cover, players and Game Masters alike will be thrilled to find over 100 pages of carefully crafted maps, incredible illustrations, and detailed descriptions, as well as a new setting-appropriate background option,  brand new magic items, an update to a classic tabletop monster, and an array of original creatures created just for this setting, all brought to life by our passionate, talented team of artists. Will you brave the perils of the Infinite Manor, unravel its secrets and escape with your lives? Or will you remain forevermore within its halls, trapped in a cycle of suffering and torment without end? The choice is yours...if you have the strength to make it."
       
      It's got some really great art and cool monster concepts! Dalimar is pretty amazingly creative, too - I have 0 doubts it's going to be an awesome adventure.
