Seany,

I agree this one looks good.  I'm just beginning to get irritated by the massive spamming being done.  I'm getting too many messages or posts about it everywhere I turn.

The one Seany mentions in the post above mine, the Marmoreal Tomb.

I don't think it is correct to call it spamming. I find I am not interested in most of the updates but I think Benoist and Ernie Gygax are enthusiastic about their project and have been told that they should communicate as much as possible.

Just an update on this project. It is currently 92% funded with 26 days to go.
A backer level (Aruba) has been added which gives Print On Demand options to backers in the UK, Europe, and Australia. This should save them money on shipping costs.
This also means that for collectors there will be variant editions out there.

Thanks for the heads-up, Jason---I hadn't realized that you were writing for this KS =)

Oscar Rios, the owner of Golden Goblin Press, asked me to join the project last spring.
I have already turned in my 12,000 word scenario set in the Bahamas in 1929 called Crimson Eyes and Azure Pools.
It still has to go through a round of playtesting and editing, but I think it is a pretty solid scenario.

I'm in, it looks really good. Don't know if I'll be able to get a group to adventure in the islands, but these things are great to read even if you don't play the game.

Thanks Mike! Hopefully we will hit many of the stretch goals.
I am working on a section for a guide to the Caribbean in the 1920's.
Earlier this year I purchased a 1928 set of the Encyclopedia Britannica (1931 revised edition) for only $100 US.
They have helped immensely in the research! I almost did not get them. The seller in Florida shipped by UPS in two boxes.
One arrived and the other went on a three week journey ending up returned to sender in Florida.
UPS finally admitted their mistake and shipped the box to me again with no charge.
For awhile I thought I was stuck with half a set of books that would have been only partially useful.

Interesting, I have a collection of 1920s National Geographic (before I found the CD-rom version) that I used to use for reseach. The photos alone are breathtaking. I also try to pick up any almanacs from that time period when I find them on sale anywhere.

Great stuff Jason I'm going to back the KS on the strength of that story :)

Best of luck with the project!


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

Did we need: Jade Magi Sewer Crawl

Shoulda been: ".. from Pangreenia to Floratopolis, from mystical Treeonia of spectral Forests to Schruborial dimensions."  - The Forests of Leng

Thanks! And just to let collectors know, there are 5 spots left on the Trinidad backers level.
That includes a physical copy of the the out of print Tales of the Sleepless City from the now defunct Miskatonic River Press.
Tom Lynch from MRP provided enough copies to cover those backer levels. This is the last of those Call of Cthulhu sourcebooks from the original publisher.

Am I the only Aceumite to get played like a sucker by the Otherworld Miniatures Indiegogo campaign?

I've received nothing. No product, no correspondence, no replies to inquiries, nothing...three years on. I'm not alone.

I wrote this one off as a loss quite a while ago, but as I continue to see new products rolling out, and particularly the excitement that seems to accompany these new products, I can't help but wonder how there's been no discernible backlash.

Brave Halfling/John Adams reputation is in ruins.
Center Stage/Matt Solarz has gone bankrupt.
Yet Otherworld continues on, business as usual, while my $280 from 2012 isn't even worthy of an email.

Curious and furious...

Have you received anything?  You should post on the Reaper message forums and see if anyone there can help as it seems there was partial fulfillment for some backers.

sorry to hear about this. that makes me as mad as the whole CSM deal. Any of those Ken Whitman kickstarters are probably worse.

Contact other world, perhaps via their forums.

I know the indiegogo caused them real problems and lots of people waited a very long time. I got the first half of my pledge ages ago and only recently received the rest.

I don't think Otherworld is dishonest, just bit off more than it could chew.

I don't know this, but I feel as though most KS projects like this suffer from two primary failures.

1. Not purposefully overestimating their costs in production and delivery.

2. Lack of meticulous record keeping.

Other than that the KS failures are usually caused by ego.

Get a physical address and landlines phone number if they have it, would be my advice. Harder to ignore physical presence and tangible voice than email, forums, and fb posts. At least that's been my experience.
