I will ask more specifics about the great white north today. I know there were talks about it but I will get an official communication to relay on that front! 

 

Much appreciated @Reaper_Jon! I'm not really fussed over what the dates and plan ends up being, but I do need to make sure that I can be around for pick-up at the apartment, whenever that may be :)

My pledge was all over the place, so I'm sure I'll be delayed. Eh, who cares. Send em, when they can, make the so called "fans" happy to get theirs.

Frankly, I'm surprised they're going to start shipping with backordered product, after the mess it was last time. 

 

I suspect that Reaper are playing the odds that the containers will show up far enough ahead of that date, or soon enough after, such that juggling things around will not be a huge inconvenience.

 

Then again, I'm Wave 18 and loaded with power-ups.  So early or late likely won't matter a whit in my case.

I'm not too worried; seems likely mine will be among the Delayed, but ... eh. Excrement occurs, y'know?

I'm not actually sure what I'd do with myself if a Bones Kickstarter showed up as scheduled, to be honest. ^^;

I have to admit, I'm disappointed...

...for Reaper.

Every Bones Kickstarter has had delays for various reasons. And for each new Bones KS, Reaper has adjusted things to try and anticipate/deflect future delays.   And then something they didn't anticipate happens, creating delays.  And for Bones 5, just when they think they've anticipated just about everything that could possibly cause delays, along comes a freaking pandemic. 

 

I'm pretty sure Bones 6 will be delayed by alien invasion.

You put that in purple, but with the focus lately on unexplained aerial phenomena, you might be more right than anyone expects!

I actually think this Bones fulfillment has gone better than the last two for one simple reason...  Communication.  We have word their may be hold ups, we are being told there is a container still out and what it has.  This is a vast improvement of the KS that had the missing container appear and then silence for like a month. We are all adults just tell us the issues and I think things will be way better.  Not perfect.  Just better.

Just saw this question asked in the Kickstarter comments, and felt like I could use some advice.

 

How do you guys track what you received VW what you ordered? Does Reaper provide an order summary in your box(s) or is it up to you to go through everything and cross check pledge manager?

I ordered nearly everything in bones 4, some with duplicates. I think they put a slip in the box with what you ordered, but don't remember fully. What I did was print out all the images showing what was contained in each set/add on then went through them all to first make sure each mini was there, then again to assemble or dry fit assemble to make sure minis were not missing pieces. I put one checkmark next to it to confirm it was there then circled the check once confirming it has all its pieces. For the ridiculous amount of minis ordered I had 2 missing minis and 2 missing/wrong pieces (two left arms, missing tentacle). A quick email to reaper and they sorted it all out.

Does anyone have a spreadsheet of Bones 5 set up?    

I just have the counts from each section that I ordered. 

 

I'll dig it up and post it again but someone else had uploaded it before.

I did the same thing with 4!

Yes it comes with an order summary, but I check it vs the Pledge Manager.  Do not use images except when I can't tell what the mini is.  I just use the names.  Check everything and put it all together.  (Note to self but a lot of super glue.  I go thru a lot.........)

      Another “large collection of miniatures” kickstarters, reminiscent of the recent Blacklist Games Fantasy kickstarters.

      I am tempted, even though it covers a lot of things we already have.

      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. 👀
