i find myself with some buyers regret over the bones kickstarter

i spent over $500 on that, and now i have all these minis and i have no idea what to do with them. the thought of painting them seems so droll and exhausting. and im starting to shy away from rpgs that rely on miniatures for combat

i guess for the same reason others did too. it was just too good a deal to pass up, and it really is.

i think i may have just been happier if i stuck with a vampire, and that's it. but goddamn having all those minis at once made me gitty with excitement for a couple days. then it quickly left

That and i was in a painting mood when i backed the project, and was actually DMing a college 3.5 game

Because it was a really stupid kickstarter, and i backed $1 just so i could contribute with the feedback. A lot of people were in agreement with me.

Basically it was a video game, and one of the extremely expensive stretch goals was bringing in a few mage-knight minis. It turns out everyone wanted just the minis and didnt give a shit about the video game (which was looking really dull).

So they cancelled it and announced that wizkids neca would be brining back mage-knight. At first it was a yay.

Then the official announcement came around and they are releasing them, but this time in mage-knight 2.0 rules with swappable bases for heroclix.

Aetherianica, a flexible open ended TTRPG that can emulate a variety of play styles and is as easy or complex as you want it to be!

Aetherianica

What is it?

Aetherianica is a table top pencil and paper role playing game. A table top pencil and paper role playing game is like a board game that has a referee (Game Master) that describes situations and the players (PCs) describe what their imaginary characters do to overcome or work through the obstacles that are placed in front of them. The rules give them chances to do things successfully and describe their chances. Random chances are determined by rolling various sided dice (4, 6, 8, 10, 12, 20, %100). Pretty much anything can be tried by the players and adjudicated by the GM.

>> No.26639899

>>26639884
Why do we need another Table Top RPG?

The main reason is that the big companies have such a small staff and are constantly run ragged by the corporate mentality. Thus they produce inferior games. They produce halfway decent games, but easy to spot game breaking errors are found almost immediately on release by people who frequent their own forums. Aetherianica is going to be different. We are going to produce a well tested game that will be expanded and voted on by the fans. Changes and updates will be voted on at the website and anyone will be able to find errors and problems long before the rules go to print. We will use open source like methods to improve and streamline the game. Licensing is also an issue with the big companies. They have strict licenses that discourage others from making derivative works and don't allow the use of their logo. With Aetherianica we plan on having a simple approval process where the rules (crunch) are immutable by 3rd party products, but they will be allowed to work within the rules to create new and interesting species, enemies, items, equipment, weapons, armor, materials, spells, attacks, etc...etc... basically everything in the game can be customized as long as they calculate out within a predefined limit. Also third parties will be able to make their own products based on Aetherianica and use the official Aetherianica logo after the material is reviewed to make sure it complies with our guidelines. Anyone can use the 'Compatible with Aetherianica' logo without going through the approval process.

>> No.26639910

>>26639899
What kind of time frame are we talking about?

We are looking at around 1-2 years to complete the project. We plan on taking advice and looking at what players want out of an RPG. We will create a website that will allow players to suggest ideas and then vote on them to be included in the game. We will give out rewards (not tied to kickstarter) to players that point out flaws or problems with an implementation. These rewards will probably be free copies of the PDF version of one of our products. These systems will be available early on in the project.

What kind of problems will you solve that plague traditional TTRPGs?

Traditional RPGs have problems such as "linear fighters and quadratic wizards". Which just means at early levels fighter type characters and wizard type characters are equal but as they level up and progress fighters have much fewer options than wizards. Other problems include "The dumb fighter complex". Where due to non-combat skills being tied to the class (i.e. fighter/wizard) fighters couldn't be good at skills that were not physically based. We will unlink the out of combat game from the combat game, which will allow for endless variety in character creation.

>> No.26639927

>>26639910
What is the basic design?

The basic design will include the choices of a species, career, lifestyle, items, and equipment. The species determines what physical traits each character gets as well as what natural affinities they will have. The Career is like what career they are pursuing (i.e. some games use fighter, rogue, wizard, cleric as classes). Lifestyle will the culture they belong to. Items will determine their possessions. Equipment will determine what weapons and armor they use.

There will be three levels of complexity for play:

Simple - Just pick a Species, Career, Lifestyle, and equipment package and play.
Medium - Pick a Species some traits from the Species, Career and some features from that Career, LIfestyle and some memories from that Lifestyle, pick items and equipment.
Complex -Create a Species from lists and charts, create a Career from lists and charts, create a Lifestyle from lists and charts, create items and equipment from lists and charts.

>> No.26639951

>>26639927
How will you deal with some of the more broken aspects of current RPGs?

We will examine them and fix them using the ideas and input from the fan base and the players. One example is complex rigid subsystems for everything.

An example would be entering a building and retrieving some papers. In a some systems you would be forced to roll to see if you could sneak in or overpower the guards and then roll to see if you can find the papers, then rolling to sneak/overpower the guards to get out.

In Aetherianica you will choose whether to use a skill to get past the guards or if your wizard wants to cast a spell that will teleport you in or make everyone invisible, or whether you dig under the wall or bribe the guards. This will allow for outside the box thinking and role playing opportunities as well as generally more fun. It will be based on abstracted design. We tell you how hard it is to have an in game effect happen and you determine how it happens and why. For instance there is a disoriented condition. It causes a decrease to certain abilities when used. Now the player and GM determine what causes disorientation, was it the character tripping the giant, flipping the ooze, etc...etc... but there is a specific difficulty to achieve it.

>> No.26639972

>>26639951
What will you do with the kickstarter money?

We will use the money to hire people to help create the rules, design the artwork, publish the books, and set up and run the website.

What will you do with the profits/extra donations?

We will create online/offline software tools to assist people in preparing for the game and creating characters, visuals, maps, adventure modules, virtual tables, and other helpful software, that the big companies have not been able or are unwilling to create for their customers. Imagine using your iPhone/Android device to pull up your character sheet tap a skill/ability and see a description of what it does as well as the ability to roll the dice involved with it to determine success. Then you click on the dice button and some artistic 3D dice appear on the screen and roll when you shake the device. Then the result shows up on all the other players screens (if its a public roll) or just on the Game Masters screen (if its a private roll). Imagine the game master doing the same with monsters attacks and having the attacks results automatically applied to the targeted PCs character sheets on their screens. Imagine a tablet/laptop replacing the expensive miniatures that were used in the past. Imagine moving your character and blasting a fireball at an enemy in hi-def 3D on a cool looking 3D map. Imagine a full 3D rendering of the characters entering the kings chamber and the guards rushing up to stop them. That's what we are talking about. When we say 'tools'.

>> No.26639989

>>26639972
How will you fix the licensing issues that big companies face?

We will limit the license to not altering or bypassing the core rules. Other than that players can publish their own adventures, Species, Careers, Lifestyles, etc..etc... pretty much anything they want. They will also be free to create their own software as long as it follows specific guidelines like using specific APIs to access the games data from the game website (which may require a small monthly fee for players or proof of purchase of rule and expansion books). There will be two licenses. The first is open to everyone and they can put a special logo on their product that says "Compatible with Aetherianica". The second requires that the Aetherianica crew review the supplement and that it follow the same quality guidelines that Aetherianica follow. This license will allow them to put the official "Aetherianica" logo on their product and market it as an official product. All products will be able to be sold on the Aetherianica website for a small royalty (probably not more than 5% or $5 whichever is lower).

Who can get involved?

After we get the funding we will look into hiring big names from the RPG industry to try to create a great game for everyone, but will likely go with anyone that shows talent (such as those found on the Wizards of the Coast character optimization forum). If you want to get involved contact *********@*****mail.com with your ideas.

What will make this RPG different than others?

We plan on taking off the limits of what players can do with their characters. Why limit fighters to be strong brutes that are dumb? Why not have a fighter that instead of using brute force uses their mind to overcome opponents through planning and strategy. How about a fighter that makes witty comments that throw their enemies off balance and allow them to win. What about a wizard that can use their physical strength to produce spell like effects (dragon ball z anyone?)? The combinations are limitless and allow the players to make the character concept they want without sacrificing mechanical viability.

Risks and challenges

The risks involve

Entering a saturated market, but through profitability from non-product means (website advertising, and other company sources) this product will be successful regardless of profitability.

The open nature and inability to patent properly game mechanics could make this a risky venture. The upside is no one will be able to copy the mechanics without a lot of fans pointing it out and it will inevitably cause those that copy the mechanics to lose favor with their own customers. Also because of the semi-free nature of the product (open source like) it will be difficult to compete by stealing mechanics because the core product will be free.

There are very few downsides to a project like this. We already have our publisher for print on demand and PDFs. We have our website http://www.kelandlokgames.com we have a Virtual Table Top in development. As well as a play test of the rules already out.

Here, look at this Reaver compared to the warhound. Notice that the apocalypse missile launcher (the size of a rhino) would even fit on the back of the warhound. Sure, it's quite big, but it doesn't come much over the sides of the carapace.

Now, when you look at >>26615653 The whirlwind launcher (I know it's a bit wider than the original one, but in general the same size) fits nicely on there, but the whirlwind launcher is quite small compared to the Rhino it's mounted on.

I'm not expecting to mount a reaver titan launcher on it, but even if it's almost as tall as a warhound, it's way, way smaller in mass.

>the gun mounts are 40k asscannons

Did I typo or was "assault cannons" not a clear enough indication of what I was saying? I was hoping for the chest mounts to take punisher cannons or something equal in size, not assault cannons. That's why I said it was "small" because the mounts were way smaller than I had hoped for, which makes the whole model smaller. Not in height, but in mass.

Simply giving the height and some shots of the model next to 40k shit doesn't convey the full story, but that pick did give quite a good indication of its true scale.

Dungeon Roll - rcvd. Its not the most awesome game but I never expected it to be. Totally worth $15

>This is way beyond my understanding of English now. What are those?
I'm a little rusty, but the most common example used by white college professors to illustrate one of the fundamental differences between Ebonics (or AAV, African-American Vernacular) and SAE (Standard American English):

>The coffee cold
>The coffee be cold

In the first example, the meaning is that this particular cup of coffee is cold, but that may come as a surprise to listeners. In the second example, the speaker is indicating that the coffee served at this particular location is always cold.

It's a mistake to claim that Ebonics is just a simplified version of mainstream English. It has its own rules for syntax, which aren't always apparent to non-native speakers, and tend to follow the syntactic style of West African and Cajun French more than mainstream American English.

It is. 'Ebonics' is a category of dialect.
Jive is a bit more 'oldschool.' It's where you get phrases like 'cool cat' and shit like that. It's a little hard to follow at first, but if you can mentally process language quickly you can learn to dig through the symbolism pretty quickly and understand it.

The ebonics we're talking about when we use the generic term tends to not have a specific, specialized name. It varies depending on where you pick it up--the east coast ebonics is very different from west coast, though there's a little overlap.

For instance, out here you can say "I wena ba'sha an' she on my weav' ebonic?"
Which, in English, is "I went to the barber shop and got my hair done. How about that, huh?"
I'm no expert on West Coast, but as I understand it you don't get the same half-sentences and they have a different way of shortening words entirely.

>> No.26656108

>>26656067
Maybe I'm used to a different sub-dialect than you. I'm from Solano, in California. The only majority-black county outside the south, so it makes sense if the version of ebonics isn't what people are expecting I guess. Feel free to disregard the question if that's a purely local way of speaking. But your version seems more like a rural white person's way of talking, although the "done" is something that would get dropped like a perfect have or a subjunctive that.

>> No.26656138

>>26656071
Well based on this:
>"I wena ba'sha
This is how you'd pronounce it in the west, although nobody says "barber shop" here. It would be more like "Ah wen' git mah hair did" and that would be it.
>an' she on my weav'
So "and she's on my weave" would be the direct translation from your spelling? Nobody says that shit here either.
>ebonic?

Well, here repeated sounds like BarBer tend to be dropped, so you're just saying "I went to the ba' "
People sometimes day things like "Got my shit done" as well, but that's less ebonics and more of an accented inner-city english, which isn't quite the same... they mix.

Also, the way the legends here have it, the word "ebonics" came from something like "he bought it?" or "you buyin' it?" and it's still used in that way. Not sure if it's true--I kinda doubt it--but that's how it's used.

I guess I was expecting volume to be generally included as an attribute of size. So an object can be "smaller" even if it's not "shorter" than the the object you're comparing it to. You can have two drinks, one in a big fat mug and another in a tall glass, and the one in the tall glass can still be a "smaller" drink, because it has less to drink.

Personally I wouldn't start fielding one as a Warhound just like that. I've thought about it, but it's just not big enough. It's not just simply having the correct height. The Eldar wraithknight is even closer to the warhound in height, but can you really see it as a 9HP titan with turbo-lasers and shit?

Epics are fine - the game features a moving storyline and thus Epics make sense. If you want to make custom warcasters, make them through the IKRPG, give them experience each game, and play that way.

I can appreciate trying to do a minimalist take on the cards, especially when the information is already well known enough that you can really afford to play with it, but the use of negative space is just sloppy, and the balance of shapes just seems like they weren't even trying. The weight of the crowns outweights the pips, and the counting pips would have been better placed down the length of the card rather than the width. It's all just really awkward as is.

I'm saying a moving storyline is hyper-mega-turbo-dumb. That shit was the worst part of RPGs in the 90s.

The only story that should matter to a tabletop game is "His squad got killed down to one guy on the second turn and that one guy rallied and won combat FOUR TURNS IN A ROW."

The kind of shit that led my brother to convert Necromunda figures based on game results.

Having a moving storyline just makes it feel like the L5R cardgame and reinforces that the miniatures are just gamepieces. GW fucks up on a lot of things, but "your dudes" is a huge factor in enjoying their games over Warmachine and Malifaux. I think this is a big reason Malifaux's moving to the upgrades system in 2nd edition.

I'm in the exact same situation. I watched the countdown thingy and could sometimes see 500-800 packages being sent every day. Then over a month ago or so it stopped at 2000 packages and was taken down, as the more complex orders was left for last.

Mage-Knight 2.0 was a terrible overcomplicated ruleset that killed mage-knight the first time around.

And im not a fan of heroclix. The fact that every single figure needs a special abilities card sort of defeats the purpose of why the game was invented, to alleviate that.

Mage-Knight 1.0 was beautifully simple and yet still open to a lot of tactics and varied army creation. You had all you needed on the figure itself, and one universal abilities card, which was easily memorized.

I figured they learned their lesson when the game dies when they introduced the 2.0 ruleset, but i guess they didnt. Now they will be going back to it, but it's a moot point because everyone plays heroclix, and they will be using that instead.

It's alright. I still have a ton of 1.0 figures, and it would be a great tool for introducing my kids to wargames when they come of age.

Kickstarter is partially friendly on /tg/ as long as it's kept in check. And containing all the excitement and discussion about projects on one General thread is the best way to do that. So when i see something I like, i will either find a Kickstarter General thread to tell about it, or make my own.

I think the stamps are a great idea because you can get green stuff or miliput for cheap, not the expensive GW stuff, and it would make very easy and quick basing. You can resincast everything yourself if you want, but that amount of effort is not for everyone, that's why these guys are making the stamps.

Actually that piece is an original by one of the kind folks at Medical Whiskey commissioned out of my own pocket so I could get the kickstarter going.

There should be an update on the project page later today, family drama permitting. There are three more art pieces left to come in total, one cover piece for the Engine Hearts / Busty Barbarian Bimbos crossover and two of the alternate covers for the core book, all of which have been paid for and are in-progress.

The core book is in layout right now with all the interior art in-hand. Once I'm satisfied with the interior layout, it's off for one last proof read (text can change to keep page breaks reasonable).
