And to kick it off, I thought I'd let /tg/ know that this little gem just popped up on my radar

I want to back MERCS: Recon, but too many things are standing in my way right now (nowhere to play it/not enough money/etc.).

I like the concept of MERCS, but one of the things that put me off about it was the cumbersome card mechanics it had. This game looks like it fixes that and makes a game I want to play. Oh, well. It has already been funded, so I guess I will try it out sometime in the future.

Don't they have problems with shipping the actual RPG, though? I've heard it's basically impossible to get a hold of a hardcopy now.

I've been ummming and arrring over that, in the end, FireTeam Zero won me over MERCS. The models alone look fantastic and will make excellent stand-ins for my CoC games
Looked good but not enough to pull me in, don't know why, just did catch me

I'm right there with you. I HATE the card movement thing, but damn do I ever love the setting and the art. Recon looks really awesome and fun, and so does the dice game. It's super tempting to jump in on the $200 pledge to get both Recon sets, the 2nd Edition minis rules(just to add to the collection), the dice game, a novel and all the stretch goals. I'm so tempted to do it, and frankly my common sense is getting beat out by "lookit how much stuff there is!"

>> No.30887206

I backed Scarlet Heroes. Stupid motherfucker doesn't have a clue how to run a kickstarter, the final PDF's available and it looks like hardcopies will be available next month. The deadline was June. It doesn't /feel/ like a proper Kickstarter, you know?

Really sweet game, though. It's basically early D&D redesigned around playing with one character. The idea is you can run a game for someone using a published module without having to change any of the stats in the module, you basically just read damage dice differently. It also has a competent thief class, for once in the entire history of the game.

>> No.30888395

>This post.

Scarlet Heroes is different from that supplement he gave out for playing his games with only one character. And while Scarlet Heroes is pretty much released this early, he was open about this from the start. This was to finish his art budget and then release the stuff in the public domain.

This guy does Kickstarters better than pretty much anyone else because he makes sure the fucking game is done beforehand.

>> No.30892280

Can someone sell me on this shit? Seriously?

I'm not a hardcore right-winger, but I do think capitalism has its merits. The way things have been, and have worked fine until now, is
a.) You get an idea
b.) you refine the idea
c.) you pitch the idea to a bank or investor
d.) They either reject it, forcing you to refine and fix any flaws
They accept it and you have the capital to produce a product
e.) Product goes on the market and it either sells, so you can pay off your loan and make profit
profit doesn't and you learned a lesson about the market and must still pay off your investors.

It meant people were actually cautious about the quality of goods produced because if they didn't sell, they might literally go bankrupt, chapter 11 and all.

Now you've got pages where you can get a few thousand people of a niche market all pledging money for a product, and if the product is shit, the company doesn't owe you anything because you weren't just an investor, you were an early customer and you bought it...you already paid and got your poor quality product (Assuming the company doesn't pull any BS of never releasing anything, where you can legitimately get your money back).

It seems like it takes all the risk of the market OFF the production company and makes the end customers carry that burden instead...how is this a good thing again?

>> No.30892614

As opposed to the traditional model where the cost of any losses are simply passed on to consumers en masse?

It's not good or bad anyway, it just is. If there's money to be made it will flourish, if not it will die.

>> No.30892656

The customers are putting faith into the individuals they're throwing money at, so yes, it's does have a massive risk as far as quality control is concerned--although, for that reason, if a product does not meet expectations the individual(s) responsible almost immediately gain a horrible reputation. The system has the advantage of allowing creative individuals the opportunity to generate resources from interested patrons when those individuals would normally not have access to whatever they need to fulfill their end result. And crowdsourcing is typically advantageous for your layman investor because they're exclusively investing in something that they personally want and are typically getting a better deal for that thing than they would otherwise.

>> No.30893156

Oh yeah, I know it's not the supplement. It's a whole new game that just happens to be basically early D&D only awesome (and with ~more tags~ for dms to play with!), that's just the one big mechanical difference. That and the trait system. And thieves being good.

I really appreciate the way he works. I'm only moderately interested in Silent Legions, but based on his track record I'll almost certainly be backing for a PDF at least.

>> No.30893175

>>but everyone has fire immunity, so the Elemental Plane of Fire is the place where fire is the least useful in the entire universe
I don't get why grogs insist on this. I mean, you're made of meat. You aren't immune to damage from meat sources. Why should a being made of fire be immune to damage from fire?

That gas station attendant game that has been going on /tg/ for a while looks pretty awesome. 'night attendant' or whatever. Id back that as a board game or vidya.

Good, well-run kickstarters are basically "here's the thing I want to make but can't afford to, here's how I'm going to accomplish it, here's a 90%+ text-complete PDF without art, give me money and I can do this thing" or whatever.

It helps if people don't masturbate to idiots with a terrible track record in the industry, like GMS, or back games made by people who clearly have no idea how to design games, or back projects involving Palladium.

It lets consumers vote with their wallets in a more direct fashion than is normal, choosing not just what to buy, but what to make in the first place. If the end product is shit, a number of people are out some beer money for a month, instead of a company being forced into bankruptcy.

Whether or not that's a good trade to you is up to your politics and level of risk-aversion. Personally, I feel like being able to bypass the publishing industry (who are almost universally risk-averse, and so likely to pass on anything deemed either marginal or too offensive) is a good thing, particularly for games.

Take Cards Against Humanity - a successful kickstarter that became a successful and highly sought-after game. Clearly, there was (and is) a market for the game. But let's be honest, the chances that CAH would have been published by Hasbro or WotC or any other big game publisher were pretty much nil.

I think that as long as people go into it from the point of view that they're helping to get something they want made or done, and not preordering an already completed product from an established company, they're less likely to be disappointed by Kickstarter. This is something that Kickstarter itself could probably do a better job of conveying.

The lavish and interesting world they described wasn't "a sea of fire" it was a fire themed world. Efreets, Salamanders, Azer and Fire Elementals were the races with special racial classes they were working on.

With a giant ocean of lava and flame too though, but due to GIANT LAVA SERPENTS and you know... drowning even fire creatures could get fucked up if they fell off the boats.

There was an endless desert of ash filled with nothing but the dead because none could live there, but beneath the ash wastes lay the ancient ruins of the Azer empire, filled with magical treasure. The Coal plains where people grew fire resistant plants because bitches gotta eat. That one city i forget the name of that is in every book about the plane of fire.

Quite frankly there are also plenty of ways within PF to bypass immunity and resistance, like turning half your damage to "holy fire" etc and shit. The Fire elemental class specifically had increasing ability to penetrate resistance and eventually immunity to fire, burning so hot that even traditionally fire immune creatures didn't have enough defense. SO FIRE YOU CAN BURN FIRE

Yeah, Reaper may have toned down the Oprah-mode (and YOU get an add-on!) this time around - but they're a well-established company, looking to put the funding into production relocation, that already delivered the last KS successfully. That's a trustworthy reputation.

Defiance Games had some decent concept art that wooed me, but I'm ashamed I missed the red flags. There was a definite lack of confirmed finished designs, and that "we're aware of our limitations, buuut" line in the FAQ was blatant excuse groundwork in hindsight. And a simple google search would have turned up one of the many shitstorms this "Tony" fellow seems to constantly get himself into. Buying likes on Facebook instead of, say, working on the KS product you hyped up? Really?

Next time I invest (having finally been reminded that KS is just an investment), I'll actually check who I'm giving my money to next time to make sure they don't have a history of catastrophic failure and excuse-making.

Having read up on their history this week in my search for answers, this looks like just the sort of denial-excuses that have been made whenever Tony runs past a deadline.
And according to one of the three ex-designer, everyone BUT Tony jumped ship after months of mishandled work and "delayed" wages.

Exactly, because they got rid of Tony.

I'll fully admit I got suckered too, but I was suckered into the UAMC marines. They really weren't a bad kit for the money, but after seeing the crap that company has pulled, I've lost all will to paint them or use them. And I got suckered in because at the time it seemed like a fairly legitimate story that WGF had screwed him over (maybe they did, who knows) Every WGF kit that was out at the time was garbage, and the new UAMC troopers and hardsuit renders look so good. And of course, who could resist female marines in reasonable uniforms.

I still feel sick about supporting that company. There were some cool ideas there, but they just didn't work out. The idea of "1800's colonialism in space" was awesome, and the concept art was cool a too. It's just a shame the company and it's models couldn't live up to the promise.

Due simply to volume of interest, I'd say it'll take a while.

They also switched from Resin to Plastic after initial production had started, so there's that too.

I didn't back KD and am not a huge fan of some of the stuff in it, but you gotta give Poots some leeway.
One of the if not THE most successful mini kickstarters that keeps its backers up to date, and Poots even has threads on /tg/ of all places, I don't see how anyone could complain.

>that mini porn game
Am I the only one that didn't get any of the pinups?

>> No.30909991

Poots, the project manager, didn't know if the game would even get funded at $35K, so the deadline that was set at the time was reasonable for that goal. However, the project exloaded to over $2M, and he got a monsterload of work to do after that, especially so as it started out as a one-man operation. I think he has a team of maybe four or five producing for the game, including his girlfriend, himself and artists, and he has hired a game master who's only job is setting up and running games to test it. According to the updates, he's working 16-18 hours a day for a year now.

>> No.30910017

No, according to an update or a post he did on /tg/ (forgot which), the pinups didn't stand for much of the KS. So you are very much not alone. I would maybe get them if they didn't cost $15 each, and if they came with some sort of gear card/s or rules to it. But they really look nice, and I would get them if I had more discretionary income.

Why do the cards worry you guys? I didn't mind them at all, in the design of the game they thought about terrain and IIRC you can use the cards on their side, also they have a neat snap-to-cover rule which smoothens things out.

I bought the rulebook quite some time ago, but never got the time or money to start collecting the miniatures. I was also disappointed to see the scale of them, they're quite small and usually consist of only two parts, which is a bummer since I was hoping to convert them with 40K bitz and use them for MERCS and Necromunda.

>> No.30912953

It can still be a pain to use them in multi-level buildings. Another thing that bothers me about card movement is how you HAVE to move a full card length and can only move up to one base length if you are next to terrain/a person. You can't just move 0.5" if you want to.

It bothers me that a trained soldier can't take two steps to the left if he wants to.

This game is very vague and the card movement mechanic is nothing more than a clunky gimmick. I see no reason why tape measures can't replace it.

The rules are also pretty vague, if I remember correctly. And the cards don't fully explain abilities, they just give summaries, so I have to drag out the rule book if I want a more detailed explanation.

>> No.30914311

I don't like the Mage or Cola as a stretch goal..But the Free Spawn Point, and the Not-Mononoke are pretty great.

>> No.30918624

Cola's free, so I don't care too much about that. But each of the heroes being $10 (or more) bugs me a little since there're only four heroes in the core box as opposed to eight in the original, plus you can get most of the add-on minibosses and heroes for 10-ish if you shop around. And the new spawn point and monsters are nice, but they're just recolors of monsters from the Caverns of Roxxor expansion. I'd rather forego the additional spawn for more heroes in the core box.

I really like it, but I haven't played it a ton. The problem is that there is really limited choices in the base set. You get 2 Kobold spawns, 1 Dragon spawn and the same boss and miniboss in every game. Expansions help however, but some things in expansions go together like Von Draak and the skeleton spawn points. If you back the kickstarter you'll already be getting more than the base set for cheaper, so I'd say it will most likely be worth it. Especially if it blows up like RK did.

>> No.30920741

Do you know anything about the co-op rules? I would've bought in to SDE a long time ago if it had good solitaire rules. Do you know offhand if that's what this adds? There wasn't a lot about it, other than just "co-op".

All I know is that it adds AI to the monsters. I'm guessing it'll add rules for random spawning and monsters what monsters activate and target.

Honestly, not that interested in the minis. I don't quite like the style, it feels just a bit off for what it's trying to be. They're okay, though.

I just love games like that. I love the shit out of Gears of War, even the D&D games aren't so bad, and I can't wait for KD:M. I'll probably pick it up, the worst that can happen is that I get $150 worth of game that I can just sell to someone else I guess.

SDE is decent if you like games like that, think Gauntlet Legends with minis.

The original base set doesn't give you much variety, but the KS certainly does.

6 heroes, ALL the expansion card sets (so you can proxy if you want) 5 Spawn points and 3 Bosses (2 mini-bosses) isn't half bad.

>> No.30921445

What comprises "a hero", anyway? If it's just the mini, then at that quality $10 seems a little steep. If they have a deck or some other stuff, it's not so bad, though. Just curious so I know how much to dump into this.

Because I'm pretty sure that I am now.

>> No.30921515

Mini + Character card. Though if it's like the promo heroes it'll also include a unique treasure card.

>> No.30921643

You get the "Hero" plus his/her stat card and usually some unique loot.

I'd agree that I don't think they're great to buy individually (and I've bought 2 outside of this KS), maybe the Mononoke is worth it.

But getting them in a package with the KS may save a few pennies. Usually they're 12 or so retail.

>> No.30921704

Neat. I think I'll hold off, other than the Twilight Knight. If CSI is anything to go by (even though they're out of stock) it looks like they cost even less post-kickstarter.

>> No.30921811
