How DID it work out in the end? Last I knew it was no different than the beginning, a disaster.

I did see one on eBay once so presumably it got out there.
No idea about stretch goals and personal extras (often the nail in a Kickstarter's coffin).
Definitely a whimper rather than a bang I would say, which is a shame but in hindsight probably not a great surprise.


You can never have too much of something you didn't need in the first place.

Pacesetter did ship some out, but I'm not sure how many, or how many came with everything that was supposed to be included.

There was a period of time when Pacesetter was very unreliable.  They seem to have improved considerably in recent years, but I don't know if they will ever win back some of their past customers that were screwed over.

I personally received a partially complete box set, but I went through Ben Barsh directly to get it.  Ben is a great guy!  I'm pretty confident I wouldn't have received it otherwise.

FWIW, I have purchased products since then, and they have been much better in the past few years.

Pretty telling if this sentence is as positive a spin as the project gets. To be fair I have heard similar about Ben Barsh but Bill unfortunately does have history, not just on Kickstarter but on eBay as well.
(Also, to maybe strike some balance, the Pacesetter items I have owned over the years have been very decent quality so no complaints there.)

Hello loki!!! Glad to read your post! Those maps are really amazing!!!
I have a question about them: what is the process to realize one of those maps? Are they hand drawn and then digitally colored? Or is there any software that creates an isometric view of a 2D map?
Thanks and ciaooo

Hi Axel

Here is a tutorial that Guillaume Tavernier made to explain how the butcher's shop (for a one-page dungeon in this KS) was done :)

So it hand drawn! ...even more difficult: hand drawn at the PC!
