Personally I found that an rpg.net thread lambasting Busty Barbarian Bimbos for being unfunny sexist rape-culture dreck was quite helpful for elevating the project's visibility early on.

According to Kickstarter's dashboard a couple hundred dollars worth of pledges were from folks that had just landed on the project page after following a link from an anti-BBB flamewar.

The lion's share of early pledges were from /tg/ or unspecified direct links (which I internally attribute to /tg/), but every little bit helps when you're trying to crest that "credibly likely to get funded" threshhold. It wasn't till it looked like full funding would be achieved that any significant number of pledges from within Kickstarter's "discover" section started to come in. Until you're at the 15-30% mark, people looking through that site don't seem to pay attention to you.

Here's what I've backed thus far. Already got my Endless Fantasy Tactics and By Fire and Sword stuff. Warzone should be shipping out by the end of the month, CoC 7th edition I should have in October, Mekton Zero in November, All Quiet and Robotech in October and then Wargods sometime next summer.

I was really tempted to get "The Agents" because it looks awesome, but I just can't be throwing money around right now. New house is making that difficult. Word is that September will have the Mutant Chronicles 3rd edition RPG which I will be backing, and then I'll certainly be backed Mechafront when that goes live early next year.

Actually the word is that it does suck.

He won't let anyone play or review the game. This is very bad to the development to the game and lead many to believing that the actual game play isn't that great.

For it to really be a good game it would have to be fun to play with nickels and dimes as representation as it is with cool
Minis. They have failed to show and refuse to try to show that they have much more than cool minis.

He's having people playtest it. He's made changes to layouts reflecting this because according to him the people playtesting it forgot to keep track of time which is an important game factor. I don't know how common it is to have games tested by journalists when they aren't even finished yet.

>> No.26697938

Well some random, no, but a respected outlet that will say it is a good game can only be good for it. If it is a good game why not?

The thing is how much further along can it get? He is making "expansions" before the game is even done.

He is "beta testing". Beta testing is not writing conclusive articles about the game quality. Beta testing can happen and you don't even know about it. You are asking for information too early. The game isn't even close to release for regular sale, there's no need for reviews and judgement now. You wouldn't have critics watch a half-finished movie.

Ah, OK; you mean adding extra mechanics. Yeah the expansions are just extra gear, monsters etc that are already parts of the game.

>> No.26699605

Yes exactly. The adding mechanics bit seems to be what the Anon implied when he complained about expansions when the game wasn't actually finished yet.
Which was a misunderstanding of the word expansion. It's not any different from that Arena Rex game adding fighters.

That's what I thought with Lost Valley. Then Pandasaurus decided to A: Completely ignore working on the game for four months because another Kickstarter ran into delays.

*shrug* it's actually the first KS I've bothered with - since I always liked the game's vibe, but found the cost of all the metal minis prohibitive. So I'm not going to comment one way or another on that.

>and can take weeks to kill

Depends on the dose. With high enough blasts, you can be a shaking, ass bleeding wreck in minutes. Take Cecil Kelley, for example. He was mixing dissolved plutonium compounds in a tank, when they fissioned (the concentration was too high), causing a burst of radiation. The container kept most out, but Kelley was looking in through a small slit.

He fell to the ground and was disorientated. He ran out and was found in a state of ataxia and only able to say to them, "I'm burning up! I'm burning up!" Within minutes he was unconscious and his skin was turning red. Tests show he was exposed to 36 Gy of radiation. 5 is considered enough to kill. Within 6 hours his white blood cells were all but gone and 24 bone marrow biopsy performed after 24 hours indicated no red blood cells. Despite countless transfusions and treatment, within 36 hours of the incident, he died of heart failure.

Holy shit CMON is run by a con artist; from Dakka
"New Wave Mail Order was run by David Doust. From 2000-2004 New Wave would offer things for sale that weren't in stock, overcharge credit cards, never ship product, and constantly lie about it (to the tune of having lied about someone dying three times in a year to delay shipping product). The business had literally hundreds of BBB complaints against them. Eventually Doust was investigated by the Georgia State Attorney, and eventually some customers got some money back. It was incredibly bad during the litigation as Doust would actually misquote or edit people's emails and posts on forums to sound like threats; the Editor of The Miniatures Page had to basically provide original unedited entries during litigation. In the end, hundreds of gamers lost money to New Wave and Doust. While this was going on, Doust funnelled the money into creating CMON. Any mention of New Wave or moneys owed were summarily deleted from CMON forums and for a period links to The Miniatures Page's several threads on New Wave were automatically blocked and users attempting to post about it were banned. CMON was founded on Doust scamming wargamers. Now that it's 8 years after that, many have forgotten or don't know about it, but many still refuse to do any business with CMON because they lost money to New Wave. Many also believe New Wave helped to destroy I-Kore (which became Urban Mammoth) as they were also the distributor for their products, making it nearly impossible for Void to purchases in some areas. Most of this is in the public record and there's overwhelming evidence still available on TMP, warseer, rpg.net, and many other forums. I don't believe Doust has ever apologized or tried to rectify in any way for the hundreds if not thousands of people that were scammed by him. PM me and I can send several links containing bunches of info that I sent to RITides when he asked me. "

that is really unfortunate because I am liking Wrath of Kings a lot. It gives me a serious, serious Confrontation vibe...such to the extent that I'd be willing to bet someone who used to be with Rackham is working on it. and that alone is enough to make me interested in a game.

I wrote a few question to Mark Mondragon (Dreamforge founder, the one who had the Eisenkern kickstarter) on facebook. Maybe someone is interested in them and the reply:

Anon: I don't know if you are able to answer this, but where there more stretch goals after the Schwarze Witwen squad? And will you launch your game with the next kickstarter (and which I assume will be the second faction you mentioned)?

Mark: The game and the Shadokesh as well as a few more Eisenkern units to fill out that faction are on the drawing board...as well as a few other small suprises. I am not 100% if I will KS the next batch or not. If I do they will need to be 99% complete, i.e. on a boat heading to the USA, I do not want the delays we have now. The problem with waiting to have everything done is that, in this industry you are only as good as your last release, and if it ends up being another 7-9 month wait, that kills excitement and hurts sales.... so I am still punting around what to do.

I realize it was funded past its goal and did pretty well. What I was wondering was why was there so much drama surrounding it?

Nope people knew Raging Heroes was cheesecake so the usual bitching didn't go anywhere. Questions of vapor ware probably comes from how many projects Raging Heroes has started (they canned their chaos gods project) The release is about a year out (that's 1 year 6 months in Raging Heroes time)

Dreamforge is still producing and delivering from the success of its kickstarter.

The only sexual gameplay element I can think of in KD is consensual sex for the purpose of reproduction. Showing naked ladies doesn't promote rape culture.
