The first is the dice, which I don't care about.  The other issue is the Treasure Dragon (Fan Favorites...I mean Dungeon Dwellers), which has two left wings...email sent off to Reaper.

 

Someone on the KS page has my right wing, and I his left.

 

John Turner, if you're here, please PM me.

WE ARE GO.

 

Also wave 2, also got 3 UPS notifications (the first two add up to the third so maybe it's just a artifact of how UPS does things?) and it is allegedly scheduled to be here tomorrow (plausible since it's only going across town).

 

After the roller coaster of highs and lows that was the last month of fulfillment I'm very hyped to actually dig in.

that'll explain my 12 lb box, but my 2 that share a tracking email are not combined i don't think

 

as i got 3: one for 15 lbs, one for 12 lbs, and one for 27lbs

 

however the 12 lb and 27lb boxes share a UPS tracking code, and the 15lb one has its own code

 

maybe the 27 lb is my main order from the initial kickstarter, the 12lb is the ship, and the 15lb is the additional things i purchased from the pledge manager

From my own triple UPS notification, I have 37.4lbs, 25.7lbs and 11.7lbs listed.

 

I quickly realized that one of my notifications is the combined order of the other two and the exact weight of 25.7+11.7=37.4lbs.

 

Just like your 12+15 = 27lbs.

I have yet to have a Kickstarter creator "fail and bail" on me, but one (by Maxmini.eu) took 3 YEARS after the estimated fulfillment date, and required me to actually troll their FB page to get it. So Reaper being 3 months out after everything that has happened since late 2019 is actually pretty good. Disappointed that my stuff did not go out with the initial wave 1 orders, but after the hiccups in earlier Bones, I knew I was gambling with my "one of everything (almost)" order. Still it will be good to get my stubby little dwarven paws on my loot. I am honestly looking forward to the inventory and inspection process. Seriously.

Ah so my total is probably 27lbs. That does sound more reasonable to what I had ordered

What really sucks is we're still waiting for our order and items from this kickstarter are already for sale on eBay.

 

That'll happen.  Saw it with the last one as well. Stores and people buy a bunch of extra and then start flipping it on the Bay LONG before any of it will get to retail.

 

In other news I, a Wave 2 backer, have received my tracking numbers. Confirmed in the PM.  As expected, the projected delivery is Friday!  When I will be out of town... and my wife will be home...  Oh dear...  "no, really dear.  I paid for all of this two year ago!  you gotta believe me!"   🤪😲☠️

This. 

I can tell you from experience that when shipping any sort of box 1 of X shipment via either FedEx or UPS, they always make the tracking number for Box 1 the primary tracking number.   Depending on various email notification settings by the shipper and recipient, this can mean multiple email notifications.

I may be able to use them as a form of pygmy orc though.

Isn't that a goblin?
I also understand the Sea Giant not being the most interesting. Sometimes I wish that the sea giant was a Leviathan and that the bloated undead were octpuses. Ohh well, maybe next Bones we will have another sea expansion (We already got a swamp city, a port city and the deep sea expansions. We now need tropics, beach and the Abyss.)

 

Shipping wise. I have received no shipping number yet. So must wait for Aetherworks to get to it.

I'm Wave 1 too and still no email.  I figure it will happen when it happens.  I just hope there isn't a "We lost your order" glitch or something.

 

I am locked and loaded (locked it the day they said we could). 



 

 

You might want to edit out your E-mail address @TaleSpinner

*GASP!* I just receive a shipping notices (plural). The claimed weight is 37.4lbs.

 

[Big brother mode] Just to annoy @Sirithiliel, I'm wave "whatever number you have +1". But officially, I'm Wave 2 Americas-Europe Not-UK.

 

Though since it's being shipped to my Canada Post PO Box, I wondering what strange journeys my packages will have, because I have little faith in it arriving on the claimed date of monday July 26th. 

Hopefully yours doesn't bounce around in USPS's system for two weeks, and then CanadaPost goes "yeah, we're going to be eerily efficient" and it goes from Mississauga to Alberta in exactly two days...

Regarding goblins....it would depend on the origin of the species in your game. In my game, many of the humanoid races were created during the Great War, when the elves split into two Courts over how to deal with the humans, who had appeared on their shores a decade earlier. The Seelie elves, together with the dwarves, gnomes, and hobbits opted to guide the humans into a better relationship with the Land. The Unseelie elves decided a practical and immediate solution would be to simply cull the human race to a more manageable level...or entirely, even. During the War, the Unseelie Court delved into the darker magics and used captured opponents of multiple races to fashion an army of loyal troops that were easily replaced. Seelie elves to Orcs. Dwarves to Giants. Gnomes to Goblins. Hobbits to Kobolds. Humans were simply killed and then raised into undead servants.... It goes on from there. Too long and off topic for this particular board.

 

Sorry your own shipping is a bit delayed. Hopefully Aetherworks can step up delivery.

Three boxes en route, but all in separate locations: one in Tokyo, one in Chicago and the third still waiting for pickup from Reaper.  Waiting, more or less patiently, at a DPO; I'm accustomed to slow mail times.

      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. 👀
