THE LEGENDARY ROD OF INITIATIVE

Story

Brothers Forged Campaign Supplies is a small business formed from the fellowship of an adventuring party. We have collectively been playing Dungeons & Dragons since the '80s. Now, with our diverse skill set, and months of building and testing prototypes we are prepared to create and launch this project.

"Roll Initiative!"

Two of the most exciting words to hear (or speak) in an adventure. But tracking initiative can be a major distraction from the action unfolding. Brothers Forged have tried many methods to keep players immersed during this process. None to our satisfaction. Until now.

The world is untamed and wild regions abound. Monsters could be hiding around every corner, and sometimes they show themselves when you least expect it. And when they join combat in a later round, adding them to your initiative tracker can be a distraction from the gaming experience. When they are killed, removing them from the tracker is yet another interruption. Finally there is an easy way to add and remove creatures and enemies quickly and easily. With handcrafted wooden dry-erase compatible nameplates - that affix themselves to the tracker via the power of magnetism - it's incredibly easy to create space and shuffle the initiative order about while maintaining the immersion that makes Tabletop Role Playing Games (TTRPGs) so much fun.

The Legendary Rod of Initiative has vastly improved our gaming experience and now we want it to improve yours as well!

How We're Going to Make It Happen

Like a wizard preparing spell components for conjuration in a later battle, we have been building, testing, and revising the Legendary Rod of Initiative, at last conjuring it into creation in its current incantation. We have searched the shops of many towns and villages to gather all of the components and sourced the raw materials needed to scale production in order to deliver the Legendary Rod to the gaming community at large. The forge has been ignited, and the Brothers are ready to begin production.

Right now, we need your help raising the gems, gold and silver coins needed to begin manufacturing. The funds raised by this campaign will be used to purchase the necessary components, keep the forge lit, manufacture, and ultimately deliver the Legendary Rod of Initiative across the realms!

Yah, nice tabletop prop, but yah. There is one on Amazon, it's not as nice but it serves the same purpose. I'll stick with my Starfinder Combat pad for my games.

I like the idea. Thanks for the arts 'n' crafts inspiration. Absolutely no way that should cost so much though.

Nice idea, unreasonably pricey.  They will probably sell some because there is way to many people with more money than sense, but I won't be one of them.

      Hello everyone,
      After a first contact with STL products, we have decided to change the way we sell them and we would like to announce the launching of a new Kickstarter campaign only for STL products, because more and more people is asking us about this product, we think is a growing sector and we want to be part of it.
      In parallel of the launching of the campaign, we will begin to create content through a new channel, Patreon, focused on the STL sales. Over the next few days we will give more information through our social media.
      This don´t mean we are going to put aside the sale of physical miniatures, we are going to continue to maintain our habitual sale channels, the web store, and future projects launched through kickstarter. Some of you may have seen we are already working for a couple of months in our next project, focused in the Zodiac, this project will be launched after this STL campaign.
      We are updating our range of products in order to reach various sectors.

      Story
      Echoes of Camelot: Arthurian Legends is a project that will expand our 75mm resin miniature range with new and exciting models based on the Matter of Britan, particularly around the figure of King Arthur and his Knights. We have many cool surprises prepared should you help us bring this dream to life.
      These miniatures have been sculpted and painted here at the Big Child Creatives studio with the collaboration of some of the most talented miniature artists out there. And what is more, they will be manufactured by our own talented team of resin casting experts. This allows us to monitor the process closely to ensure the best quality in the market and a timely delivery.
      We have learned a lot from our previous campaigns, and we want to put all this experience to good use, repeating everything we did right, improving upon it, and correcting our past mistakes. We invite you to join us in this journey of discovery throughout the Matter of Britain and its amazing cast of unique characters.
      This campaign is a journey of discovery, full of surprises such as custom bits to make your miniatures even more striking than they already are. Some of these kits will be Kickstarter exclusive, so those of you who choose to support us will be able to proudly show it through unique miniatures, even more full of life and character than our regular releases.

      Hadn't seen this here yet:

         You enter the cavern with water dripping down from overhead. The smell of rotten meat is thick in the air. From up ahead in the distance you hear the loud battle cry of your enemy SQUEEEEEEE! 
      Painted by Ben Rodman      Pig faced orcs.  The most iconic encounter of any classic adventure. We have a nice variety of these little oinkers in the pen.
      We enlisted the help of Bobby Jackson to sculpt the porcs and Jason Wiebe for all the pork besties. They did an awesome job.
      Fortress Figures will be casting these beauties up in lead free white metal. 
      Any support for our small family owned business is greatly appreciated.
      Painted by world renowned artist Rob Wheeler Painted by world renowned artist Rob Wheeler      This project is for unpainted, white metal and/or resin figurines. Models are provided NOT painted. Models are scaled to 28mm toe to eye or 1:60. Models are provided with a plastic tab/slot base. Figurines are not toys and are intended only for adults. Models may require some assembly, may have sharp or pointed parts and are a choking hazard to anyone prone to put them in their mouth.

      All miniatures are in 28mm scale to realistic accuracy. Dinosaurs are scaled per paleontological reference. Dinosaur: 1944 is a cooperative strategy game about army men vs. prehistoric monsters. In it, you and up to 3 other players control brave soldiers in a World War II setting, struggling to save the entire world from the threat of a Mesozoic rebirth. It is in part a battle game, as you maneuver around the map and fight the enemy. It is in part tower defense, as you place ambushes to help take out or slow down the incoming fiends. Each hero has unique strengths and weaknesses – your victory depends both in mastering your own hero and cooperating with your friends.
      As the game progresses, you face more numerous foes and dinosaur bosses enter the field. Eventually you face the final boss – defeating her wins the game. Beware: if the dinosaurs devastate your base camp, you’ll be stranded on Kyuryu Jima, prey to the horrors therein.
