Magnetic Status Markers 1 Year, 3 Months ago  
Alea Tools is having a kickstarter for their magnetic status markers. I havent used these yet, but am very excited to try them. Some great stretch bonuses. Today is the last day.

While I get what they are trying to do, I just really disliked the character flying above the table on a rainbow flight stand look. If I am going to spend as much as I am on DF stuff so it has a nice 3D realisum, I just can't see then placing all the monsters and figures on bright orage or Yellow etc discs.

But to each their own.

I think I heard about a solution to represent characters flying... ;-)

i use the alea magnetic status markers in my games. they are very easy to see from my side of the table.

I have signed up for about $$100 of new colours of markers. whtat one person suggested was that each character and boss have a unique 1 inch colour marker assiged to it underneath the model. the owning player has a matching 2 inck base on which the different status indicators are assigned.

I plan on trying this system out on my next gamenight.

I am picking up a few sets with bonus colors, going to get a sampling of colors and see how it works out. I know my group tends to use buffs a lot, and it would be much easier to just put a marker underneath for hasted, rage, etc. than to have a list of stuff written on the gametable.


Biowizard, I have not forgotten about your flying stands. Just need a break from these KS to get the funds together.

I have used these for years, and wound up backing this project, even though I already had a ton of them (for a very small pledge amount.)

It's kinda odd how many uses you can think of for them.

Bio, do you have a full "restock" on those acrylic rods? I have been thinking about them a lot.. but, like so many others, this month was KS hell for me, so the wallet is still tight....

galladril, my current stock is 95*2", 46*4", 0*6" & 3*8". I don't have any more rods to cut right now so I cannot make the few custom requests I received. I'm presently waiting to sell more of my present stock to free some immobilized capital before buying more raw rods, kind of the same problem DF constantly had...
