  • 12:20 PM - William Mize quoted crazy_cat in post The Delays Of Cthulhu
    Cthulhu Britannica: London by Cubicle 7 was due for delivery August 2014. It was late but we got (most of) it - and it was very good; but the final stretch goals are still outstanding. World War Cthulhu: Cold War - again Cubicle 7 is also running long, the main book is delivered but stretch goal books are coming along rather slowly. This was due for delivery April 2016. This leads me to my thoughts on stretch goals: I think they are somewhat useless, and can actually detract from, delay, and in some instances torpedo an otherwise great Kickstarter. The CoC 7th Edition is Patient Zero for this disease. The number of stretch goals were ridiculous, and even Chaosium admitted as such, and just said "We've given you X, but we can't deliver Y and Z, and we're not going to." If you're going to include stretch goals, I would recommend one or two at the most, lean toward the digital (extra scenarios), and even have them somewhat completed before the Kickstarter even begins. I'll also add a Cth...

    You do know you are quoting a post from January 2016 don't you? LOL. I didn't bother to look past January. My bad!

    The Conan RPG by Modiphius hasn't been KS'd yet - it is in open testing at the moment. I think you are getting it confused with various boardgame Conan things (with/without minis) which have funded and are underway, and a Conan pre-painted minis line which cancelled without funding. Actually I was part of the Conan RPG KS by Modiphius last March. :) The physical books haven't gone out yet but they have released PDF of the Core book (for revisions and error checking) to the backers. I'm crossing my fingers the physical books start going out in March. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/modiphius/robert-e-howards-conan-roleplaying-game?ref=discovery

  • 11:30 PM - Grimstaff quoted crazy_cat in post Your Move? Kickstarter and the Evolution of Game Crowdfunding
    Worth noting that Dwimmermount did actually deliver in the end, albeit very late - James M just went quiet and gave up (for whatever reasons) but Autarch (the publishers) soldiered on and eventually got it out the door. Autarch got *something* out (and this is no knock against them, they by all rights could have just walked away), but it was not exactly what pledgers paid for, it when they expected it. To me, Dwimmermount is a classic example of a Kickstarter that never should have happened. James M. gave us an awesome blog - it was his passion, and varied enough in subject to keep him coming back with near-ridiculous amounts of great content. Then the Kickstarter comes in, and the *hobby* becomes a *job*. So the money gets spent but the work doesn't get done - you can't just walk away from it when you feel like it, like a hobby. In the end, backers got a door prize, a great blog went silent, and James M is likely too embarrassed to show his face in the gaming community again, which is ...
  • 09:38 PM - Desh-Rae-Halra quoted crazy_cat in post Your Move? Kickstarter and the Evolution of Game Crowdfunding
    Chaosiums Call of Cthulhu 7th Edition is my latest running RPG Kickstarter - due in October 2013, somewhat optimistically, and still nothing physical actually delivered, although we do now have some PDFs after Chaosium nearly went bust and were bought out! Also piss poor is the Timewatch Kickstarter - by Kevin Kulp (Piratecat on ENWorld) in partnership with Pelgrane Press! Due in November 2014 and 'The game is designed, playtested, and over 80% written' when seeking funding this has yet to see even a first draft handed over to Pelgrane; and Pelgrane have stepped in on comms (which still aren't exactly brilliant) as things had just gone quiet from KK in the face of backer questions about (the lack of) progress. I really do think companies/people need to think lomg and hard before using Kickstater to fund their projects - because it requires you to engage regularly and honestly with consumers in a way which old traditional 'publicise and sell it when its ready' publishing didn't; and the dam...

    Worth noting that Dwimmermount did actually deliver in the end, albeit very late - James M just went quiet and gave up (for whatever reasons) but Autarch (the publishers) soldiered on and eventually got it out the door. Same thing with Space 1889 (Angus Abranson/Chronicle City) wasnt doing anything, so Cublicle stepped in (German publisher) and things have been working out. Cubicle has been respectful and transparent. Other companies like Conquistador Games who did the "Best Damn Metal Gaming Coins Ever!" delivered last coins in April 2015 (estimated delivery Nov 2013), then changed their name to Artana LLC, but are still using Game Salute (who apparently changed their name to Ship Naked). I wouldnt trust projects coming out of ether of these companies

  • 05:24 PM - Morrus quoted crazy_cat in post CONAN LIVES! Info on the new Conan RPG
    Mongoose D20 can't be licenced as Mongoose no longer hold any licence to make or distribute the game. You wouldn't need to. You have access to the d20 rules and OGC content already. The Conan element has been public domain since 2006 (at least in the UK).

  • 08:54 PM - isdestroyer quoted crazy_cat in post What's the most anticipated RPG of 2015?
    AGE from GR is already mentioned. Does teh combined Dragon Age count - or is it disqualified as it is 3 previously released things combined and amended? Yeah, I saw the SW post after I posted mine. As to DA, that is my question as well.

    Sounds interesting (and me too) - but its existence and availability has apparently completely passed me by, whats it called? "Star Trek Federation: The First 150 Years", by David A. Goodman It is available on Amazon...

  • 03:58 PM - Random Bystander quoted crazy_cat in post Dwarven Scalped?
    The new stuff was funded via a Kisckstarter - and teh backers have received their materials ahead of retail release. They got a good deal and bonus/extra items as strtech goals and I imagine a few of them were out and out resellers or planning to resell some of their purchases to fund the ones they kept for persoanl use. I considered that explanation, but it does not explain why the game tiles would be out of stock on the day of their release.

  • 12:51 AM - Morrus quoted crazy_cat in post The REBUILDING EN WORLD Kickstarter Project
    How do those who gave via Paypal, having missed the close of the Kickstarter, get their badges? You'll need to be patient, I'm afraid! I have to work my way though over 1500 people one... at... a.... time.... and hope my fingers don't drop off first!

  • 08:05 PM - Morrus quoted crazy_cat in post Miniatures for a Star Trek game?
    Victory Force Miniatures - Spacefarers range Postage to the UK is a killer however - I've been chasing them to see if they have a UK or European distributor, but no reply so far :( Oh wow - those are *perfect*. Postage is a problem, though. I love the "casualty pack" - in red shirts! http://www.victoryforce.com/Merchant2/graphics/00000001/006605blogo.jpg

  • 03:52 AM - Umbran quoted crazy_cat in post Cortex+ Is Cortex+ Serenity or Firefly the big announcement for 2013
    The same scale of 'Big' difference to the outsider/unaware/unconcerned as there is between D&D/D20/Pathfinder/C&C/DCC/T&T/CoC/RQ/WFRP/TOR/True20/Conan/Traveller/Fantasy and SF RPGs in general...? Just asking as I'm not clear on how we might draw those boundary lines.... No. The big difference in that Twilight vampires are described as sparkling, not shining. It's a simple "words mean things" bit, where they aren't interchangable.
