Re:Dungeon Entrances 3 Months, 2 Weeks ago  
As someone with 184 KS projects under my belt I'm happy to say I've only had 3 that are going to be a bust for sure, another one that's in the air but leaning towards being a bust and the others have either delivered or are in a state of doing so. As to being on time, I will confess that there have only been a couple that have made it on time (DF being one shining example). Most of the others are anywhere from a month to six months late (1 is a year late this month and I was just notified it's shipping by the end of the month) I would say to anyone that has doubts don't do Kickstarter, if you can't afford to lose 100% of your money don't do KS and if getting your stuff on time is important don't do KS either. If you go in thinking this is like ordering off Amazon you are going to be disappointed close to 100% of the time. I look at it like it's a lottery ticket. I go in knowing full well I may lose everything. Too many people that pledge on KS go in thinking it's some sort of established business and then spend months getting bent out of shape when things don't go right (and they won't go right 98% of the time).

As to the negative comments. I certainly read a very negative tone brvheart's post as well. If it wasn't meant to be there that's fine, but I certainly also read it as being there. I for one will be pledging for Griffin Tamers day one and am hoping to get in on the early bird stuff.

I'll be a day one backer as well; my wife is still reeling from Caverns so I may have to do less than I want, but I'll be there!

BTW, the bashed doors you previewed on Facebook look awesome! Wish I could link to them here but I'm at work.

Well!

Kickstarter is definitely one of those things that provokes very strong reactions from folks. I've been a backer and observer at enough projects there to expect a pretty diverse response to this one too.

Brvhheart (and anyone else who's reluctant to back this one) - I don't take it personally. If what I'm offering interests you, I hope you'll check it out and judge the project on its own merits rather than past experience; but there are a gazillion reasons why, even if you think it's awesome, you might not choose to back this particular campaign, and I understand that. There have been numerous ones I've really wanted to back but other things intervened. And I've backed a couple that have been disappointing (and hopefully learned a few things not to do). DF's campaigns have of course been the shining examples, and I'll do my best to emulate their professionalism.

Everyone else... thanks again for all the support. I'm deeply grateful. Again, no time to respond to everyone, but you can be sure it's appreciated.

One great suggestion I saw a few pages back, from Monkplayer I believe, was to do one post that showed all the gates, so folks wouldn't have to read through this whole thread to see them. So I'll do that now!

(I should add, that my KS is also going to include a wide variety of smaller pieces as add-ons and stretch goals; but for now I'll keep it to the big gates.) The final images show the new "broken door" alternative for the Giant's Gate.

That broken door is awesome!

That settles it. I'm getting one of everything!

Griffen -
is the idea behind the modular design so that you can get 1 archway, but put in several different doors?

Another thing I would like to see is a stone door version of those wooden ones, with some cool carvings/artwork on them.

Cody N.,
Yes, the modular design allows you to swap in alternate doors (which will be KS stretch goals), and also to use the gate as a doorless arch or a freestanding arch-wall (above a road or waterway, for example).

There may also be additional new doors beyond the broken one: an ornate metal one, perhaps one in spiked iron or stone as you suggest.

Jchunick, Thanks! Glad you like 'em!

GriffinTamer, I too will be there day one. All your stuff looks great. Do you have a pre release page we can look at? One of the KickStarters I was interested in gave out a link to a non-live KS page, and ask for feedback before it went live. I don't know if you have something like that.

I haven't checked the site for a while but I'm sure glad I decided to. Those look fantastic man, I can't wait to buy them. Has a KS date been kicked around yet?

@ Jim: GF face book page say next week, Hoping for Thursday (unless I read that wrong.)

Griffin Tamer: all these dang choices are going to drive me crazy. the broken doors cause my 13 year old to exclaim "is this guy try to bankrupt me?" He is trying to match me for $$ to get more bang for his buck.

I was iffy on the idea of switchable doors, but the broken ones pushed me over the line into avid enthusiast.

I just want to thank Griffintamer for the bashed doors; I saw a single door on ebay by Yansolo and mentioned it a LONG time ago in this thread as a suggestion and GT emulated the idea perfectly. It's so awesome to have your input heard and executed. If I could only buy one item from this KS, it will be the bashed doors and that gate. Hopefully I'll be buying a lot more. :)

Griffintamer, what color of resin will these be cast in? Will it be possible to do them in a darker color of resin? I hate it when something eventually chips somewhere and a glaring piece of white shows through.
