meh

It's an interesting model to me, but I'm saddened that sooooo many things just wind up as part of the core set, and only the core set.

Twitch stream:

Not sure what to think of this.  Hopefully it's fluff, and rules agnostic campaign stuff, as that would make it more interesting to me. 

 

 

... As for the lighthouse, seems like a neat concept but I'm waiting on seeing the renders before any opinions.  Like curiosity what dragons can perch in it, for example...

In terms of game material, the most interesting thing seems to me like it would be be stat blocks and encounters that line up to the figures - that is to say, exactly what Steamforged has already been doing with the Epic Encounters line, by making a box full of figures, and including a little booklet with a short dungeon/adventure that uses all of those figures.

 

I know they published a few .PDFs of adventure modules last year, and listed some suggestions for miniatures at the end. I feel, though, if you're going to suggest miniatures from your collection, you need to have enough different miniatures for that - does that make sense? If your adventure features five wererats, don't have a single wererat in your catalog, because then you're saying "buy this five times". Now that you're setting five bugbears, write something with five bugbears! Write something with up to three salamanders! You have the ability to cater entirely to your own collection.

Lighthouse, I have to admit, I'm kinda indifferent to this one. So does that mean if social media suggests something out-rightly outrageous & stupid, that Reaper is going to cave in to that as well when Bones 7 (you know it' coming) comes around? I would have preferred them to announce they have changed script & we are breaking up the Core like previous KSs in the pledge manager. That being said, I did like the B5 ship & the other terrain pieces I've picked up from them over the years + being KS exclusive (Yuck! We' haates thiiss!! Hopefully they aren't becoming CMoN KS....) & for $30 bucks, I'll probably get it. I hate missing out on things I might regret later in the future, especially when it right there for takings.

 

RPG: Whatever floats their boat, if Joseph Wolf is involved, I'm sure it'll be great, at least the fluff part of it. I'll take a look at it, but I doubt I'll ever run it. Hopefully they'll come out with a preview/test pdf or something. Don't go all in like Paizo did for Pf2e, but something like you'd find for FreeRPG Day or something.

Ok, I doubted the Light House, but that sketch looks great. Somehow in my head it was more of a traditional, Northsea striped one and I couldn't picture that. Love the walruss.

 

In regards to the RPG, I'd love to see them put their weirder/bigger creatures into the focus. An (easily convertible) adventure using the Stygian Barge would have me interested, another adventure using skeletons or goblins probably less so.

And now I need two - one to do each way.... or maybe, if I am truthful two to sit in the drawer and keep each other company....

 

I need to get one to resell on ebay, because 36 seconds after the pledge manager closes for good next January people will be on here asking how to get one.

That may yet happen.  I am guessing post kickstarter, to encourage people to get the Core.

Yah, that would be great marketing strategy. At least the lighthouse gives something people have said they wanted, something to help the KS climb overall.

I really do not get what people have been on about with light houses.

I will pledge for that.  It looks more stable than my home made one (though it's cool looking)

Someone asked for one to go with the Pirate Ship back during Bones5, and it turned into an annoying repetitive joke on the Twitch stream.  I think it was annoying enough that the Reaper crew stopped reading chat comments for a while.

It had totally infested the Reaper Facebook page as well.   

 

 

On a positive note, the pledge total is rolling up at nice pace.  Looks like, at the current rate, Fire Newts will be unlocked tonight.

It's funny, I kinda expected to see the light house pop up at the end here. 

 

I've never really commented on it because, well it was pretty ott talked about for a while, but I was very curious to see if it would make a surprise appearance. 

 

And now it has,  I'm very excited to pick one up! Sometimes it feels like buying something from the KS is like buying prepackaged  inspiration for a one-shot (looking at you owl bear nest)  or a basis for a whole campaign (tombs). 

 

Maybe that's just how I'm justifying pledging for everything - "sure I need that... that will be great for when I write (insert vague idea here, specifically bent to necessitate as many B6 things as possible) for the upcoming (insert unlikely possible future game)" 

 

 

I really hope the light house pumps this KS up, I want to see Mr Pinchy again!

Oooh, we've got about 45 minutes to speculate about it; I'll go first: new, never before seen big 'wow' thing to finish the campaign. 

 

I know, I know, being that specific, I must have cameras in their offices, right?

 

Maybe I do.....:devil:

Told ya so!

Joseph tends to favor rules-light old fashioned systems with flexibility, and more role-playing than rules-lawyering so I think you'll find it easy to convert to D&D or a similar system of your choice. 

 

This. I've played in his games before, and he's very big on action and story without mechanics getting in the way.

I'll definitely give this a look.

Very happy to  see in the flavourtext that seagulls are finally recognised for the evil, flesh tearing,  undead whispering birds that they truly are. 

 

I've always felt that what my rpg worlds lack are evil sentient seagulls.
