TOPIC: The NEXT kickstarter?! Number 3!

Re:The NEXT kickstarter?! Number 3! 6 Months, 1 Week ago  

That would generate a lot of excitement as folks tried to bring in backers to make sure their beloved "nest with dragon eggs" add on got to the magic threshhold



Run multiple small KS at the same time, each with a smaller buy in (one set not two) and possible addons.

Sewers vs MBS vs Nest with dragon eggs vs Sci Fi vs Temple of Doom

Maybe an "add ons" Kickstarter would work.
Pledge for 1 to 10 add on sets of your choice.

That way DF could offer BUNCH of amazing add on sets.

I was thinking about some new add ons that come up in my games often.

SHIPS - Imagine the image below cut into DF tile square pieces. You could make any size ship you want. (this is my most wanted)

WALLS - Free standing walls of spiked logs, brick/stone, ICE/FIRE to make fences, barricades, SPELL EFFECT AREAS. (Wall of fire spell)

ROOFS - Angled pieces. Circular tower roof. Thatch. Chimney. My PC's always end up on roofs.

THEME ROOMS - The DF Mastermaze DEN OF EVIL HELL SCAPE set is just awesome. SO much better then cavern lava. More33 theme rooms would be a hit with me.

I would be interested in MBS or sewers, however not to the same extent that I have gone into caverns and game tiles. Enough to build the traditional tavern or few rooms at the start of a sewer. I'm more interested in variety rather than quanity now, dressing, tranisitions, center pieces and small addons which I can use with the bulk of my existing tiles.



I think many people are interested in MBS and Sewers in Dwarvenite and like you would not want as many as they did of Caverns and Dungeons. But I would guess that either would still do great as a 3rd KS and if Stefan did them both in the 3rd KS it would be great. The KS could allow pledgers to pledge for sets of just one or the other or both with the best discounts for five sets of both. If MBS got twice as many sets pledged for it then Stefan could show twice as many add-ons for them. Or if Sewers was ahead...... well you get the idea right.

Cody N - Ships is an AWESOME idea! - I have not seen that proposed before but it would be very easy to do and they are adventure areas that see a LOT of play (Freeport, Razorcoast, Skull & Shackles etc.) - I salute you sir - you have made me want to buy yet another game tiles design... think of the add ons !?!?!?!

Wow, I have no idea how it would work, but ship tiles would be absolutely fantastic! The more I think of it, the more I want some.

Hoping the next KS is *AT LEAST* 18 months out... I *WAY* overcommited to this last kickstarter and the previous one before that.

I'm not sure about anybody else but if KS3 rolls round sooner I will be taking the sidelines and hoping the product line is available later down the road.

Overall ideas for next kickstarters:
Catacombs
Sewers
Taverns
Rivers & Lakes set 2 (lava as well)
Wicked Addon sets
Ice Caverns
Forests & Woodlands
And sure why not boats I guess...

Personally after Caverns I dont see a huge need for other sets soon minus the sewers and possibly catacombs. Taverns would be neat but not required. The rest would be icing.

Not sure how well ship tiles would work. Ships need certain basic things. Each ship needs a bow and a stern and if more than 40' long a mid section. You would also have to design these for 20',30' and 40' widths necessitating a great number of pieces. Also each ship is different. I guess it is possible but I see at minimum a need for 12 pieces plus add ons. Do you want more guns? No guns? Two masts? Three? How about a single mast? As I have all three of these products and am running two of them currently yes I have interest in ships. And the third is on hiatus. I would, however, mention that Renaissance Miniatures is planning a kickstarter soon for Medieval ships.

brvheart -
Ships tiles are not that difficult.
40ft long by 30 ft wide, using the same dimensions as the dungeon pieces:

Side Rail/Wall Piece x 8
Floor Piece - 8
Curved Corn/Bow/stern x 4
Mast floor tile,poop deck/elevation blocks.... That's 6 pieces. Guns, rams, ship wheel, would all be in a wicked additions.

HOWEVER..... Now that I know about the PIRATES KICKSTARTER coming up, I will have to watch for that.

Thing is though,
I feel like the tiles are going to be more durable. How carful do you have to be with your Junk?

I just want to take a moment to say how much i appreciate JackAttack and all that he contributes to these forums. With all of the new blood here (myself included) his presence and "institutional memory" is a great asset to us all. It is funny to me that many of these ideas come around again... maybe it is time!

Thank you, both.
