In for this one as well :)

 

@MarvinFrom the bottom of the page:

"For convenience we are making our existing products available to add on to your pledge in the BackerKit phase once the Kickstarter has ended. Our books are also available from your FLGS or favourite online retailer.

Optional purchases will not increase shipping costs which we are setting based on your selected pledge level (excluding digital) So you will not pay any extra shipping if you add on more books!"

Which is pretty neat, I might take advantage of this

I backed their dungeons Kickstarter and also added their “big book” of battlemats as part of my pledge; I couldn’t be happier. 
 

I’ve  backed this one for the 2x2 books plus the little book that comes with it.

Nope and I haven't heard any comments about the spirals for their previous dungeon or their other Big Book products. I imagine the spirals would get in the way if you were to have a non-gridded book for use with miniature skirmish games using rulers. But they're fine for RPG and miniature games with square-based movement. Personally, I prefer 1' square tiles, but haven't seen an inexpensive product like that since a 3.x D&D Basic Set box. If it's like the last KS, the book will have 40 maps, so that's $1 per map vs Pathfinder Flip-Mats which are about $10+ each. (The maps aren't exactly comparable, but tell my wallet that.) EDIT: Maybe if you wanted to put the spiral-side of one map next to the spiral-side of another it might get in the way??

 

I also have game tiles, but, since they're different sizes, I've found them to be a pain to organize. OTOH, I still use them with maps, such as Loke's cobblestone battle maps. The Big Book will have at least one map of cobblestone, so you can use them with your game tiles *and* 3D tiles! ^_^

These are tempting, but I've got a bunch of other, similar tile sets for villages. Looks really cool, though. Does the spiral get in the way for anyone who's used these?

Haven’t bothered myself or my players in any instances.

All free SG's unlocked!

 

Campaign is now unlocking sticker sets. These additional sets may be purchased in the PM or replace the free sticker set with every set of books (eg. you get two sticker sets at the DOUBLE pledge of two sets of books).

 

The KS has a £5 digital-content pledge level that has all the content of the non-digital content, and will be available in April.

 

Loke Battlemats, as part of their Drive Thru RPG presence, is also offering a free set of fantasy and SF maps for online play during the CoVid epidemic.  See this update. :

I don’t have any experience with the Syrinscape app but from the reviews I read on the App Store, I’m less than enthusiastic. I’d love any kind of constructive feedback before I got and download it, create an account, etc.

I'm seriously considering this for the ease and variety. Even tempted to go for the 2x bundle, since it's not much more and it'd be nice to have some extra space on the map. On the other hand, I really shouldn't be spending so much money right now. I've still gotta pay for Bones 5...

      Hi, we're Crow Land Publishing, and here's our first book, Wickerpunk. A supplement book for Dungeons and Dragons 5th Edition, with application for all fantasy and horror games, such as Pathfinder, Call Of Cthulhu and even superhero games, like Champions. It will be 275 pages.
      Folk horror – horror and supernatural fiction that relies on elements of the past, folklore, superstition, the dreadful majesty of nature, the darkest urges of old religion. And old gods. Where the landscape itself is a symbol of fear and dark majesty. 

Heroic fantasy – a dream of blades and magic, a dream of defiance of the dark powers of the world, where we can be our truest ideals of our self. 

And when these genres collide – we have Wickerpunk.  A genre in which the ancient and natural world of the Wyld meets the imperialist world of Industry.
      If you like film such as Gawain and the Green Knight, Dragonslayer and The VVitch, you'll like our book.
      If you like games such as Maiden of Sker, Greedfall, and Hellblade, you’ll like our book. 

If you like anime such as Princess Mononoke, The Ancient Magus’ Bride and Faery Gone, you’ll like our book.
      If you like TV shows such as The Witcher, Game of Thrones, (especially the White Walkers stuff!) and the classic 1980s Robin of Sherwood, you’ll like our book. 
      If you like novels such as The Mists of Avalon, The Dark Is Rising and The Broken Sword, you’ll like our book. 
      Wickerpunk is a sourcebook that instructs GMs and players alike on what wickerpunk looks like in a game of D&D or any fantasy roleplaying game.

      We have a small and short campaign live at Kickstarter.
      As the clunky title suggests, It's about a big virus, his small buddy and some masked adventurers.
       
      The all in level is 50 USD (60 Canadian) + postage
       
      Thanks for having a look!

      "This Kickstarter marks the release of our two newest books in the Dungeon Craft series "Fallen Kingdom & Jungles of Dread". Both books have nearly 1,000 jungle-themed pieces in them, which allow DMs to build custom interactive maps in a brand new setting. As of this Kickstarter, we will have launched 6 total campaigns, and have brought numerous products to the market. Additionally, we're excited to announce jungle-themed versions of past projects will be brought back for this Kickstarter! This includes the Deck of Stories/ NPC Cards, Dungeon Notes, and new models from our miniature line Counterspell Miniatures. We'll also be unveiling new and exciting products like our jungle DM screen and our Crocodile Jasper D20."

      *******
      1985 Games have launched their third Dungeon Craft Kickstarter.  The last two have been fantastic and I absolutely love them.  While I enjoy painting minis, I'm not a fan of building terrain or scatter, especially since it tends to block sight or get knocked over and is a pain to store.  These 2D terrain pieces are a great compromise. I haven't seen anyone else talk about Dungeon Craft on the forums, but I definitely advocate!  If you missed their last two KS there's opportunity to get those as well.  And for the first time they're offering some original minis as Add-Ons.

      I barely received my last campaign pledge from Midlam that already it has something that caught my interest.
       
      Sisters of the Kraken Cult. The female counterparts of the previous "Onslaught of the Cult of the Kraken Lord" and "Cultists of the Kraken Lord". (I now have some regret of not getting it)
       

       
      What's also interesting is the optional add-on of fish folk.

       
      Brinewind is going to have some interesting neighbors.

      Story
      After the estate of one Fomo Barrowblight (who many moons ago, and with heavily laden bags, had said he was just off for a morning walk, never to return) was sold at auction, there came to light a strange scroll that appeared to be a map of the final resting place of a lost tribe of halflings.  These cousins lived down in the scorching Southlands, amidst endless dunes that had buried whole cities and civilisations.
      The newly elected (and so still very enthusiastic) Halfling Town Council had organised an expedition to make contact with their fellow halflings, with the aim of swapping some stories and recipes, and who knows, perhaps even coming back with some interesting new cakes.
      And, after many great perils and travails, the expedition found itself in a mysterious location known as 'The Valley of the Things'.  Here, recipes in strange hieroglyphs were marked on tomb walls,  guarded jealously by High Priests and long mummified pastry chefs.  
      The expedition takes time to assuage the fears of the High Priests that they are here to steal the sacred recipes and make formal diplomatic relations.  But Fomo Barrowblight and another mysterious figure seem intent on stealing the recipe to the sacred pie and have already gleaned some of the ingredients...
      To the Mummy's Tomb!
      Introducing a series of  Eight Fantasy Miniatures in 28mm scale from a halfling expedition to the burial grounds of their cousins, in the desert southlands. 
        Halfling Town Council Five
      The latest elected Halfling Town Council, has been responsible for launching the expedition to the distant Southlands, as always, it is made up of eight different townsfolk from all walks of life.
       
       
       
      I've already pledged for the whole set, why haven't you?
