Reaper Bones 5: Enthusiasm and Commentary thread


Recommended Posts

Ed just posted a comment on the KS with the latest status.   They are hoping to get more information on the container on Tuesday.

It would be a good idea to actually hire a dedicated Kickstarter person. With this KS still in play (and I would assume a bones 6 this fall) and another one the way, it would be better to have someone JUST doing that job, rather then adding it to someone else's plate. What if, say, that person got sick, retired or went to another company, it would be far easier replacing a single job person versus a multiple job person. just a thought.

@Sirithiliel you are one of the nicest folks on this forum. We are just worried about a friend we have who is fighting discouragement. I know I am so looking forward to meeting you at Rcon.

 

i wont' be there this year sadly, but hopefully next year. itll be the first one i have missed in many years

 

anyways thanks for the kind words guys. i just havent had much to be happy about so far this year, well really so far since 2020, so this was just yet another disappointing blow

As you have mentioned before, Reaper needs a Communications Manager. I do think they've improved since Bones IV, but there are aspects that are still lacking and all of it would be easier for everyone if they had a dedicated Communications employee.

2020 can go blow chunks.

I thought the same thing at first too.

 

Seeing some of the new pics of the sets people received makes happy I can get a second chance to grab some of them. I skipped most of the "encounter" series (Dwarf King crypt, Gallowgard, Mandupar Pass), but they're growing on me.

I think many of us were aiming for July 5th thinking it would be back up.  I'm sure Reaper was like,  "wow! Did anyone else see how many people logged into the Pledge Manager this morning?"  In honestly curious how many did. 

 

Excited to throw more of my money at you, Reaper.  Darn you and your influence on my wallet!

I know I logged in.

 

I mean...I've got enough, more than enough--likely, but I never did pull the trigger on a few items.  And, frankly, I'm curious to know what they're going to turn back on.

Just to help manage expectations, please remember that many businesses are closed today in observance of the Fourth of July holiday; Reaper is one of them. The absolute earliest I would expect the pledge manager to reopen would be tomorrow, July 6*.

 

*I do not work for Reaper, so please don't quote me on that. It is an educated guess on my part.

Remember todays a holiday for Reaper. It's the day we celebrate 28 days to the anniversary of the signing of the Declaration of Independence. (The Declaration passed on July 4th but was not signed till August 2nd)

Wave 1, Backer #1 here! I’m in the EU so thankfully no missing containers, only problem is I’ll be out of town/country until the end of August…

 

I emailed Reaper and Kit from the UK hub said they’ll hold my package until I come back! So generous of them!

 

But now I have to wait another couple months… my own fault for traveling for work hah!

I am Backer #4 in Wave 1 with one of nearly everything. Delayed for sure. Not sure for how long yet.

You will be at worst, order number 4 — out the door, the day after that container arrives.

Agreed.  Feels like this has been a regularly made comment too since the main force behind such retired at the end of Bones IV.

Time for another picture….

A size comparison with Graeco-Golem, a WOTC Iron Golem, and Cerberus. 

The grid this time is one inch squares (…Fiskars and them sewing hobbyists have copied WOTC !!)

Cerby is on a circle base that fits 3x3 squares — 76mm diameter.

Graeco-golem is on a 2x2 area — 50mm circle. 

Iron golem from WOTC is on a 40mm round. 

 

 

For @Cyradis Updated assembly list:

Ballista: not assembled

Shadow Dragon: not assembled

Trebuchet: not assembled

Fire Giant: not assembled

Nemean Lion: ASSEMBLED

Graeco Bronze Golem: ASSEMBLED

Henchmen: ASSEMBLED / single piece models

Cerberus, Pegasus, and Gryphon from the Greek set: not assembled.

 

 

Who asked a question about assembled minis and painting,

(that I cannot quote for reference because the forum keeps thwarting me,)

so far, the assembled ones are not a problem for painting. Whoever was deciding assembled/or not has made the same decision I would have.

So Kudos to whoever that was.

 

 

However, I did not order cannons.

I have seen some pix of the ships cannon on facebook. 

Can't confirm, but based on what I have seen, the whole cannon down to the wheels is all one piece.

Worst possible option; massive blunder, IMO, if that is so.

      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. 👀
