Terragon Terrain (Magnetic terrain)

Recommended Posts

Stumbled across this and thought it might be of interest to some folks here.  Be a different way of putting together woods and stuff for traditional wargaming.

Pretty much the entire 'leader' page is GIFs so I'm not going to try and copy it over to here.

Heads up, Canada and US only during Kickstarter campaign. Rest of world has to wait until after. 

 

Neat concept though.

The 1.5" tiles and "flat" color design mean HeroScape. 

 

First Created. For some reason, the tiles look familiar, but maybe I'm just thinking of a similar KS.

 

Anyone here on HeroScapers? I'm sure they'd be interested!

That is a lot of work to get a map put together....  not to mention the legal issues for the company if a kid or pet eats a few of the magnets.  I'm out.

They're  1.5" across the flat, so that's the smallest dimension.  While it may be possible for someone to swallow one it seems pretty unlikely.

I would guess the concern involves the possibility of the magnets falling out of the tiles and being swallowed rather than the tiles themselves being swallowed.

Hello,

 

I stumbled upon this thread and wanted to chime in. My name is Corey and I am one of the creators of Terragon Terrain. 

 

I would happily answer any questions you all may have! 

 

Regarding the issue about choking. First of all Terragons are not marketed as toys. However they are also large enough to not be considered a chocking hazard on their own. The concern with any magnetic product is of course the magnets which can prove quite dangerous for young and small children. While Terragons aren't branded as toys we are concerned with not only safety and quality of product. One of our key requirements of our stateside injection molding partners is that these tiles be nearly impossible to break apart. Not only for a longer lasting product, but for safety.

 

Building with terragons is quick and easy. They snap together quite easily and are quickly broken down. I highly recommend you check out our reviews on youtube. The most recent being Rybonators.

 

As I said please ask me any questions you may have. I am currently trying to get my account set up but the authenticator is clearly broken because the answers are correct but it says they are not!

      Those who know me well generally know what a massive Darkest Dungeon fan I am so I've been very good to not post about this one yet. I've been holding off 'til nearer release date to avoid putting a thread up too early. There is going to be a kickstarter for a Darkest Dungeon boardgame. This makes me happy. It will have miniatures! This makes my heart sing with Joy. It's going to be by Mythic Games. This makes me somewhat concerned. I've heard horror stories about their rulebooks needing updates and finally becoming playable  a year or two after release (or even in a second crowdfunding campaign if it's their Joan of Arc game).
       
      That being said it will have gorgeous miniatures that, while similar to many of the unofficial Darkest Dungeon miniatures, knock then pants off many of them. I'll probably be backing this for the figures alone but I appreciate any concerns that people might have.
       
      They claim they're looking to launch some time in late October or early November.
       

       

       
      There are a few more pictures and a handful of videos doing the rounds at the moment including two or three gameplay sessions. Here's what I was able to piece together from them.
       
      It’s a campaign game. You don’t play as the Heir. You play as the Heroes. You randomly generate dungeons then head inside making important choices about your resources (food, torches, spades etc). When you meet monsters you lay out a mini dungeon board and fight it out.
      Heroes and enemies occupy four positions. Attacker, Defender, Ranged and Support. The skills you can use are based on the position you’re in. The battles have a four round limit so they don’t drag on too long. Take too long and you have to retreat back into the corridor. Corridor encounters happen. There is a scouting system.
      Every 3 dungeons you have to tackle a boss dungeon. You randomly generate the boss beforehand and he has in town effects and other effects so you really want to get rid of him when the time comes. Boss battles are all or nothing. If you fail a boss battle you don’t retreat. You just loose the entire party.
      After 3 bosses you go into the Darkest Dungeon itself to end the game. So that’s 9 dungeon runs (or 12 depending on if the boss dungeon counts as part of the once every 3 dungeons frequency) then the end game run to complete the entire campaign.
      They currently only plan to have 8 core heroes in the game (you can bet the other 7 or 9 will be stretch goals). When you loose a hero there are two replacement heroes in the stagecoach. Take a new hero. The stagecoach does not appear to generate new heroes beyond these two replacement heroes. If one player’s hero dies and they are unable to obtain a replacement from the stagecoach then you all lose. Game over man. Game over.
      They intend to launch around late October or early November.
      Mythic kickstarter campaign lengths are as follows.
      Time of Legends: Joan of Arc 32 days
      Solomon Kane: 24 days
      Reichbusters 10 days
      Super Fantasy Brawl 8 days
      Time of Legends: Joan of Arc 1.5 15 days
      Enchanters: East Quest 11 days
      Steamwatchers 11 days
      Hel – the Last Saga 14 days
      So we’re probably looking at 8-15 days which is quite a short period to scrounge up cash in.

      Draco Studios, the folks that gave us Dragons of the Red moon, Legendary Dragons, and Dragonbond:Batttles of Valerna have launched another kickstarter.
       
      https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/dracostudios/great-wyrms-of-drakha?ref=profile_saved_projects_live
       
      This time it's different.  It's Plastic versions of 7 of their dragons from previous campaigns, accompanied by a PDF or Hardcover book with 7 high level adventures (of 4 sessions) to fight each of them using D&D 5e along with some epic combat rules. new items, etc.
      There's also a free sample adventure
