Reaper Bones 5: Enthusiasm and Commentary thread


Recommended Posts

Stupid question to the Canadians: when they shipped your orders together last time, didn't you pre-pay taxes? How could UPS waive the tax otherwise? 

 

My personal experience with getting stuff through customs has been, that small/cheap and uninteresting packages have a good chance of slipping through unbothered. My Bones V is definetly not that, so we'll see. As long as they don't think it's some sort of commercial operation I'm running, I'm happy.

for the EU-ans, I ordered the Reaper Vex past friday, it seems to have past the customs department yesterday. That would make it 5 days including a weekend in there for shipping to The Netherlands. It's been at the customs since monday 14:00 and been released tuesday 19:00-ish. That's a decent time I think with the whole Brexit border stuff, I hope the kickstarter shipment itself will get the same time 😃

Eh, I'm telling myself to be patient with customs, as it can vary quite a bit since Brexit. I've also had stuff stuck in customs for weeks coming from the UK. 

Right now I'm filling my time by putting all the Bones V things I ordered into my database, since database entries are fun and I can look at all the pictures again.

My Reaper package (NOT the kickstarter) just arrived. Declared value of 186,- but no import fees were demanded, and no VAT was asked for. it was just delivered. I'm hoping the system will be just as kind for me when it's the kickstarter, but this was already a nice surprise 😄

I am interested in the pledgemanger reopening. 

I know I should have gotten everything I wanted in the year or so it was open, but there is still things I was on the fence about ...  so I paid careful attention.

 

It creates a new order, manufactured and shipped completely separate from the ordinal KS

implying new boxes, new shipping fess, new taxes due... will not effect arrival of original order, 

AND it comes with a 6 month delay (opens july 5th,  90 days to close, 90 days to ship)  

and a 20-30%  markup of KS prices 

it was referred to as bones 5.5   its still faster than waiting on retail 

 

they said only "Popular"  items will be included.  Specifically , yes on all the Full Core set,  big dragons, and the Mammoth.  

No core set extras or busts. 

 

stuff I would still buy, if it makes the "popular" cut 

Greek Expansion 

genies 

demonic temptation

I'm wondering about Canadian PO box shipments. It is possible to ship via USPS or Canada Post for those of us who only have rural addresses? Getting the courier to deliver can be a nightmare, depending on who it is. 

I've using P.O. boxes for years now for *all* of my packages. Search for Flex Delivery from Canada Post, it's the name of their free P.O. box service. As long as it's from USPS or Canada Post, you can choose to get it delivered directly at the post office.

 

Couriers like UPS on the other hand don't do PO boxes. They drop it on your front door/porch or you go pick it up at their depot (varies all the time).

For Kickstarter shipments from Reaper and many others, to my recollection I've never paid extra fees unlike regular "free" shipments. The KS shipping fee price always felt high enough to have the taxes included in them. Be it USPS/Canada Post or UPS or whatever.

Just out of curiosity- by "Bust collection", does that just mean the three humanoid busts, or the dragon ones as well?

I would assume just the three humanoid busts, but I could be wrong.

Thank you, that answered all my questions. For now, I'll go with the status quo: hope for the best, prepare for the worst, blame Buglips.

It's always in fashion to blame Buglips.  that is what he is there for.

I've never blamed Bug, he's a stand up goblin! He seems to be framed alot! 

That's a goblin's job, stand up and be framed. Although they are actually to blame for most mischevousness.

Indeed. Cobra Bromander made it an official declaration that Buglips is to accept the blame for any and all problems. Stormshadow agreed.

Someone forgot to put on his tinfoil hat, and Buglips got to his brain. That, or forgot his nose plugs and was tortured into obedience via stanky footwear. 
 

In all seriousness though, I’d definitely take another look at the pledge manager again if they re-opened it.

Way back in Bones I, Reaper didn't even know about the brokerage fee (at that time $25).  When they announced that they would be shipping to Canada using UPS, several people (including myself) immediately jumped in to make sure they understood there would be an additional fee above and beyond taxes + shipping, why this was more peculiar to courier services than regular mail, etc.  This was so that they would know what was involved to either A) choose a different option for Canada (USPS, using RAFM as a distributor hub, etc) or B) Making sure people know about the fee, but this was a problem because the kickstarter had already closed and this fee was not mentioned in the original deal.  

 

In between this and that, for whatever reason the USPS and RAFM-as-hub options didn't work out.  That left UPS, and the aforementioned problem with that surprise fee, and so whatever was worked out with UPS we didn't have to pay it (I presume Reaper ate it instead).

 

Since that was an emergency measure, that's why I presume we have been (or should have been) responsible for all taxes and fees subsequent to Bones I (or, at least, subsequent to the expiry of that original deal with UPS).

      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. 👀
