I got extra giants and the like.  Some of the $10 items were too cool to pass up.

I finally got my pledge manager to work correctly and I got everything ordered.  It worked well with Google Chrome and not at all with Internet Explorer.

Now, how I am going to display this mother lode of miniatures after I finish painting them (sometime around retirement age) is a nice problem I'll have to solve.  :cheers:


Sophie would have been a useless fig to me and I know I will use the Driders, the Griffen and the Owlbears. The giants looked cool, but what I need are giant grunts not leaders.

I also ordered Sophie... Plus the limited edition Sophies assortment :)

Success!  Firefox worked fine... Plaag, our goblins are coming!


I draw the line at collecting... D&D Towels.

Looks like the $75 level is the place to be if you want maximum minis :)  I'm confused, one level says sold out, the other is open, but they look the same to me.

For the sold-out level, you have devils cast in metal.
For the other one, you have got devils cast in resin, and the night hag... if I am correct.

Thank you, I think I get it :)

Does that mean the metal Devils will be limited to 100 (and are all spoken for), or will they go in to production for purchase later on?

The Reliquary looks cool ...

The only one I've ever invested in, though, is "Pathfinder Online" ...

I've become pretty devoted to Paizo's products, which creates pretty humorous circumstances when someone from my wife's cocktail-party-charity-fundraiser-crowd asks if I have any hobbies.  *smirk*

Thanks for pointing this campaign... Now, I am in.
Richard does a fantastic work.

Not really roleplaying, but there's a Kickstarter for an Ars Magica computer game.  It does look interesting -- Ars Magic is one of my favorite game systems I've never played.  The goal ($290,000) may be a bit ambitious, however.

They will be creating two game books if they meet the goal, but the levels for getting them are very steep - $250, or $500 for the limited editions.  That would instantly put them on par with (beyond?) the only other rare/collectible Ars Magica item (Bats Of Mercille).  I've talked with them about it, and they understand, but of course are most concerned with the video game.

Considering I couldn't even play the video game (Windows?  What's that?) it makes contributing an odd choice.

In my (limited) experience with video/computer game kickstarters (my son contributed to one), you don't really get value for the contribution.  It's much more a donation to get the game completed, than to get collectible books or the like.  I've always thought that the Ars Magica magic system was inspired, and, though I haven't played a computer game since computers used vacuum tubes (JK, though not by much), this almost got me to reconsider.  But to your other point, Steve, I also have a Mac, and have never bothered installing one of those Windows simulators.  So contributing doesn't seem to make much sense for me either.

There have been some video games from known designers/studios (apparently, I don't know much about it) that have raised millions via kickstarter.  This seems so niche to me though, so I really don't know how much chance it has to succeed.  I'd give them $20 for the game, even though I can't use it, if I thought it would help much.  But base contributors aren't going to get it there - I seriously doubt there are 14000+ Ars Magica fans - and the value for higher level contributions isn't really there for me... unless I fall into a pile of money.  :)

Another computer / video game KS was in the news this week because it flunked. It's too hit and miss to gamble on these, as they might get funded and but never see the light of day.
Not that this one will get funded.
