- probably end up doubling my total pledge if the right kind of stuff was available.



I would personally like to agree with the above. :]

I will second this, and this is just a reminder to Stefan and Jeff:

Kickstarter projects don't need to be ANYWHERE close to finish, that's why it's Kickstarter. So I too wouldn't mind paying extra and waiting a long time, even if all you have is concept art ;)

Why not offer the original treasure and magic item set as a stretch goal? It's a small, very light set that a lot of collects cannot get hold of. This set would motivate me to buy some Kickstarter sets.

Good to see some new 'Rooms to explore' and that there are now 'Diagonal' half squares. :D

+1 for simple. As someone who collected cardboard dungeon tiles, I can tell you that the more different tiles you have, the more difficult it is to organize them all.

Also, as someone who's new to DF, I'll mention the concern many n00bs have: How many sets? I've read forum posts that the $120 pledge too high. But the original $60 per set is now $40 per set, and if the stretch goals make it $30 per set, that will definitely make the new tiles affordable.

But the non-basic tiles don't work this way. A few diagonal tiles are useful, but this n00b wants more basic sets for his money first. OTOH, it's pretty obvious that, by the end of the KS, the "Buy two, get two free" goal that, iirc, Stefan has said, will be met.

One random thought to appease both veterans and n00bs is to alternate stretch goals. Every other stretch goal gets you more pieces of the basic set, while the other stretch goals gets those shmexy pieces the veterans want.

Me, I want some accessories and a tavern! Those stairs sure would be nice!

I'm fine with this campaign as it is now, with tons of identical pieces but if you were to add something new perhaps stairs or windows would be nice.

I think everyone has made some excellent points. In several posts I have seen Forge folk have expressed a need to be cautious with bells and whistles to ensure that the profit margin stays healthy enough to allow for future awesomeness (that should be a word, but Webster's doesn't agree with me).

I wonder if perhaps providing a handful or even a couple of accessories at a bargain basement kind of add on pricing would be a practical but still enticing stretch goal? I know that while I love seeing them add more basic pieces; I would be very pleased with a few free or cheap add on accessories like columns, treasure, etc. They don't have to be in the same material as the tiles. I understand that this may not be feasible, but we can hope that the accountants and the skillful Stefan can find a way to work a little magic for us...

My players rue the day I bought "Dragon Mountain". Ever since they give every creature a bit more respect. You never know when the GM will decide that this group is crafty...

I was wondering something about the stretch goals myself. The current stretch goals had wall pieces and floor pieces twice but only the corners once. I would like to see one more stretch goal of corner pieces become available.

Thanks for all the feedback everyone. We appreciate it! DF has always been very open to input for its collectors.

The Stretch Goal plan is still somewhat in flux as we are trying to adapt to the bigger than expected response -- as well as the new desire to add in some new pieces. We hope to strike a good balance for new and old collectors -- as well as maintaining certain margins.

So, thanks again for the feedback! We are listening.

I would like to see the addition of more pieces as stretch goals. The diagonal pieces are nice, but the best bang for the buck is the addition of extra basic pieces. I did the math, and the way it looks now, if you do the 10 set unpainted pledge ($500) with all of the bonus pieces it gets the set cost down to $33. The more pieces you add to the bonus the more I want to order. :)

If that isnt an option, here is the list of stuff I would like to see for stretch goals:

1. Carrying case (or just an additional tote bage per order)
2. book of map ideas on how to arrange pieces (creatively, multiple levels, etc.)
3. More common pieces (did I mention that I would like more of the 4 main pieces added for stretch goals...?)
4. Stairs
5. Columns

I would say for a Pledge of $260 or more a very special piece. something exclusive and artisitic. maybe make a mold of a entrance piece, or something like that. I don't really know, but the point being that you have to be committed to the project to get it.
