Story

Here is my collection of fantasy ruins the can be 3D printed for tabletop games.

The pledges will be delivered as STL files for you to print on your home 3D Printer.

Disclaimer: i do not own a 3d printer yet so i have not test printed these models, if you find any error let me know and i will sort out the meshes for you.

All models have been checked for errors in mesh-mixer and a couple of them will need to be sliced to fit onto smaller build plates some of them already fit onto a 300 x 300 mm plate.

Does it seem somewhat odd to aim for a 300x300mm build plate, when the most common inexpensive but decent printer is what, 235x235mm?

I think that's explained by the sentence ahead of it "Disclaimer: i do not own a 3d printer yet so i have not test printed these models, if you find any error let me know and i will sort out the meshes for you."

This seems really expensive for a limited STL set that has had no test printing done for viability.

 

Agreed,  50Lb for that?  I could sculpt that up in ZBrush in a few days.  I need to run my own STL KS apparently.

Most resin printers are much smaller.  My Photon is 80mm x 185mm.

please do @TaleSpinner! I would back your work sight unseen as long as it was reasonably priced.

I'm pretty sure we can make all that with foamcore, insulation foam, and a hotknife.

 

For 50 quid?

 

Not real impressed, to be honest.

To be fair, points along the vein of "I can make that myself" are really moot. These are for people who do not have the skill or inclination to make themselves. 

 

That said, I think this offering is far too expensive for what you get. The market for STL-files with terrain pieces is rapidly getting crowded with a lot of very talented designers, many of whom even give away many models for free on sites such as thingiverse.

 

I freely admit to being a whale of sorts when it comes to such kickstarters. I have backed many.  But with such a rather unimaginative and small offering that is not even test printed, by a designer that starts out by admitting they dont have any experience with 3D-printers? For top dollar? Just no. 

Had there been a great many more models offered in the same package, then maybe. Quantity can make up for quality.

 

If these designes had been outstanding in some way, then maybe. This project does not have any of the "I gotta have it"-factor that I find many other stl-projects do have.

      Anybody familiar with these guys? Was thinking about dipping my toes into this, in large part to expand my virtual tabletop resources, since that's the world in which we now live and all.

      Last 48 on this one. Low-risk, so I went in.
       
      ...
       
      GM: "As you enter the forest the first thing you notice is the absence of noise. There is the wind in the trees, but no insects droning or birds chirping." *I know I need to give these guys another encounter, but I don't have one prepared...* "You..um, come across a cave...and it.." *looks through books and papers* "Roll Perception..no wait! Um..."
       
      Player One: I HAVE DARKVISION!
       
      Player Two: Wait? What do we see? Huh?
       
      Player Three: I rolled a NAT 20! Tell me EVERYTHING I see, I rolled a NAT 20!
       
      Player Four: *sees GM fumble with papers and books* Were you not prepared?
       
      Has this ever happened to you? Both novice and experienced GMs can sometimes have a hard time working random encounters into their adventures. We all know pre-planning every part of an adventure is futile, and any good plan falls apart as soon as the Players start rolling dice. The Tome of Encounters seeks to eliminate the worry and book fumbling with a handy list of fully fleshed-out and detailed encounters that can be placed into any situation in any adventure! 
       
      Detailed Within...
       
      The Tome of Encounters has over 40 detailed encounters, ranging in difficulty from Easy to Deadly, in 11 different terrain types. From shipwrecked pirates to manticore ambushes, lost treasures and secret portals, vampire lairs, and basilisk dens, there is always a quick encounter to add a bit of danger at a moments notice! Each encounter is tailored to its environment, average party level, difficulty, and includes level accurate rewards and treasure. Scenes are set up to be quickly inserted into any 5e adventure with little to no preparation. Monster statistics are provided in this bookmarked PDF for easy reference. Some encounters even have additional "hooks" that the GM can use to engage their Players in additional side-quests! Each one to two-page encounter is also presented with a full-color map that details the environment the encounter takes place in and gives a grid that can be used to demonstrate monster and Player positions. The maps will also be included without words or other decorations so the GM can re-use them as they see fit.

      The Graveyard Collection
      This is a collection of graveyard themed terrain for your tabletop gaming pleasure. This KS is for STL files only. I have printed all the models and painted them to make sure everything is looking good! I used a Photon Zero and water washable resin to print all the models from"The Graveyard Collection". 
      Thanks to all of you wonderful people my first two KS's were a success and hopefully this one will be too. 
      Free Models
      All the models I make end up being free to the community. I post them on My Mini Factory and Thingiverse. I also make them available on my Patreon. My first KS "Cult of the Abyss" is already available on my Patreon. Some of the "Cult of the Abyss" models are already making there way onto My Mini Factory and Thingiverse. So, if money is an issue, you will still be able get all the files. You will just have to wait a little longer.
      The Graveyard Collection Models
      "Gravebrute" - Born from grave dirt, human remains, and headstones! "Gravebrute" (render) Large Mausoleum - Prints in six parts to be almost support-less The large mosoleoum is 6 seperate STL files to allow for nearly supportless printing. Multiple files also makes it Photon Zero friendly.. Small Mausoleum Tombs Grave Monuments
