Reaper Mystery Bag???

Recommended Posts

So was this for the social media viewers? I clicked on New Releases to see if anything was up & this came up. It was out of stock but like the bag & Kaladrax offerings, I never heard of these being announced. I will admit, I probably wouldn't have ordered the Mystery bag due to the price. $30 bucks is a tad bit more then I'd like to spend for a grab bag of stuff.

What I heard,, later, after it was long over, was this:

 

They were cleaning up, organising, inventorying things that had been filed by the shove-it-in-a-box-and-we'll-deal-with-it-later method. And they found all kinds of random leftover items. So, Ed, or somebody, said, let's just divvy all this up into a dozen or so even sized boxes. Make one entry in the webstore for Mystery Box. And we'll sell them eventually….our problem solved!  :rock: Then they sold out in about 90 minutes :wow:

Pretty sure it was less than that. I was on the book of face when Jon posted about it, and by they time I could click on the link, less than 4 minutes after he posted it, it was out of stock.

I seriously believe that people camp the Reaper website the way we used to camp the AC (ancient cyclops) on Everquest:)

Wowsers. In Reaper's defence ( @Reaper_Jon ) if they sold out 9 minutes after the first post about it was made to fb there would hardly be time to put the notice elsewhere. 

 

Simul-posting to all the different socials, the forums, and discord would be an impressive technical feat. Does anyone suppose there is an app for that?

If there is, that would help bridge the "not-social" gap between the various outlets.

Didn't even know they existed until people started post on FB about receiving them.

Five channels, six if we count twitch.tv.  What is a "not-social" person looking at if not at least one of those 5?

Yes, there are tools and apps that let you post to multiple social media sites simultaneously, and even schedule news releases in advance so you don't have to be awake at midnight, for example.  

 

There was a comment from Jon on the Reaper "fan" FB page that convention swag bags are going up for sale "soon",  I hope we see an official announcement when that happens. 

 

The recent swag bags seem to be random leftovers from KS and previous cons, with some store swag thrown in.  Random paints, random bones, pens, stickers, dice, ball caps, logo stuff sacks, Halloween ghoulie bags and Christmas "stocking" bags.

Well, they say the RC swag boxes are supposed to be unlimited... I hope they realize just how crazy popular they're going to be....

To be fair, I was coasting the reaper site and saw them listed in new releases and mentioned it in passing in reaper's discord channel at 1250p edt.  they were gone sometime before 2p edt.  my random visit to the website and subsequent mention in discord may have preempted reaper's announcement of the mystery bags being available.

When they only give information regularly on one of those six channels the number they CAN use is irrelevant.

Honestly, an email newsletter for announcements, upcoming events, and product releases would pretty much cover it for me.

 

I don't have any social media, and I don't hit Reapers main page every day (no, really, I don't ::P:), but I do check my email regularly.

I was one of those lucky few that just happened to check the Store randomly at the right time; I got one of the Bags Of Randomness. I am beginning to think it was just a fiendish scheme to up the Store traffic, as now I compulsively go and check to see if something new and improved hasn't popped up. Not a bad haul--but it was kind of a grab bag of leftovers as said above; extra RCon swag, holiday promos, rando Bones and paint.
