Re: What did you order !!!!

I'm still deciding what else I want to add to my Dungeon of Doom (Painted, Magnetized, Black SoS). So far: Last Few Pieces of Doom Ancient Pillars (Red) 6x 12"x12" Terrain Trays (2 lava, 4 water) I would *love* to add the Emperor's Mega set in marble, and get more elevation pieces. However, I'm back...

Re: Canadian Pledges stuck in Customs for 4 weeks?

@bernyleung -- Once you get your shipment notification, call the shipping company immediately and arrange an alternative, scheduled, delivery date. They will hold delivery. I leave for Europe for a month in a two weeks myself, so I'm prepared to do this as well. I had to do this several years ago du...

Re: Canadian Pledges stuck in Customs for 4 weeks?

Just received this message: Dear Canadian Backers: We were hoping to contact you today with a definitive status of your Castle shipments. Unfortunately, we learned today from the forwarder handling all our Canada-bound shipments -- to our surprise -- that they still not able to release all the shipm...

Re: Pre-Sale, PLEEEEEEEASE!

As a Dungeon of Doom backer, a pre-sale is the perfect time to add more terrain tiles, magnets, and gaskets and spread out the expense. I'd like to have 16 terrain tiles to fill my whole 4x4 game mat, but that's lower on the priority list right now than expanding my dungeon.

Re: Canadian Backers

I am also considering the Dungeon of Doom, so at $205 USD for shipping and duty, it's a pretty decent price. However, the long hold-over KS4 is having right now at the Canadian border is really disheartening, and really has me thinking about the other options Canadians might have for shipping in the...

Re: Scenarios for Castles!

I am working on converting the old 3e Red Hand of Doom module to run as my first campaign with the Castle Kickstarter. Spoilers follow for Red Hand of Doom. The module features several set-pieces recently covered by the Castle Builder: 1) A small ruined single-tower fort with four square-ish walls, ...

Re: Please Be More Timely With KS Updates

Yes -- no news, good news, bad news -- please let us know where things stand right now.

I'm happy there are teasers for KS5, but a solid update on the status of KS4 is sorely needed.

Re: What's your budget for KS5?

I went big on KS III (painted Empire with sewers and roads) and KS IV (painted Royal Stronghold with mountains). I am aiming to spend around $500 to $1000 this time around. As a Canadian, the dollar and extra shipping really cuts into how much I can order. I am considering spending about the same in...
