Jack threw out a bunch of ideas including:

If selected stretch goals were announced at the beginning, would that encourage more early pledging? The last KS only revealed stretch goals that were immediately ahead -- I think because they were being created during the KS. What if some (every third? every $250K?) we're announced at the start to generate focused interest rather that unfocused speculation? And what if a major piece like a dungeon entrance was announced earlier in the process?

i vote NO to this idea. The first DF Kickstarter was a model of how clean and elegant a KS can be. We knew what was unlocked and what was on deck. The rewards pictures changed to show the total reward all together in one place. As a result we all checked every day, hour, minute for updates. This generated a TON of traffic and buzz around the KS.

Reaper Bones II was a mess - there were so many images being posted i had a hard time figuring out what was going on. The whole page just became a vast jumble. The other very real issue that faced Bones was that virtually no one out there had even made a dent in painting their first shipment, that makes doubling down hard to justify.

I suspect DF will end up about where it did last time $2million (do we get a cavern enterance?) unless some of the add ons are for Dungeon accessories in which case it will go MUCH higher. I don't know about all of you but i spend a lot more in game time in rooms and corridors than i do in caverns. My pledge will likely be similar (due to budget) and result in fewer pieces. That is ok as i suspect they will not store nearly as compactly as the dungeon walls. I am fully mentally prepared to get sucked in and decide that i can't live without a HUGE cavern setup.

Can't wait to be wowed - bring it on Stefan!

My thought before the first KS was that if you don't have any 3D terrain it is a lot easier to say a room is 30' by 30' or 20' by 15' than explain a half oval half bean shaped cavern or a banana/potato cavern.

While I am so happy to have entered the world of 3D dungeons I still think that old thought rings true. I think the world of 3D caverns will add even more to game play than the fantastic dungeon tiles have.

I just got an email about the caverns kickstarter as an 'project update' to the original kickstarter.

Just said coming soon though, no dates.

I went ahead and posted over on DakkaDakka, which seemed to have a loyal following from the first KS. Reaper's forum also has some new posts in the dungeon tiles KS thread as well, so people are slowly posting news that this KS is fast-approaching.

I think once the preview hits, and a date is announced, we'll see an influx of interest.

This will probably be as big as if not bigger than the last KS. Cavern MM sets have out for a year plus.

I am very excited about this new Kickstarter.

I think DF would do well to include even the original options for add-on's for the next Kickstarter.

I am on the verge of ordering some product from the Dwarven Forge website, but I don't want to affect my buy-in for the next Kickstarter... What a dilema.

So Jeff and Stefan say the project will begin later this month. The waiting is killing me.

I'm exited myself. The first kick-starter allowed me to finally get into building full dungeon layouts for my games. Once I get better at photography I'll post some pics. I definitely think this kick-starter will be bigger than the last. I'm hoping the layout is similar as it was very exciting.

I have been following this thread closely, though I've been more or less silent since starting it.

I am really excited for the KS, and cannot wait to find out when it starts. Any day now.

Thanks to Stefan and Jeff for all the updates they've provided so far, and to all the other forumites for keeping things interesting!

:)

DF KS 1 was the most perfectly run Kickstarter I have taken part in.

Whatever formula they used before, I hope they use it again.

Communication was great, product was delivered on time, and is quality.

I don't care if there is a U for this one. I just want it to go as seamlessly as it did last time.

/me twiddles his thumbs, continuing to play the waiting game.

The Reaper community is pretty large, so there is already quite a bit of buzz about it. I know that on the DF Facebook page, the KS announcement has been "liked" by a few hundred people.

Getting the word out shouldn't be the problem. :)
