The Wizard's Tower - Expansion Sets contains modular bridge pieces to print your own bridge on your home 3D printer (or by using a printing service). As an extra expansion to this you can also pledge for the sacrificial set if you like your wizards a bit more evil.
The bridge pieces were designed to be used in conjunction with The Wizard's Tower to create a grand entrance or join two towers together. But they can be used completely separately to build a bridge crossing a river or even a tall viaduct joining 2 cliff faces.
The ruins included in the pledge make it great for creating scenic pieces on your battlefield. Perhaps a long, destroyed bridge spanning the length of your table.
The Bridge Extras adds even more dimensions to your tower allowing you to connect multiple towers through the junctions or even join together different tiers of your tower.
The sacrificial set is great for a lovely outdoor setting for your evil wizard, complete with its own pillar for captives to be tied to, sacrifical altar, floating font pouring out some gooey yuckness and a portal to some place of evil (or good, maybe some lovely fairy land).
If you missed out on the original Wizard's Tower Kickstarter you can pledge here for the entire set of the Tower and the bridge or if you are a returning backer (or just want the bridge) you can pledge solely for the bridge. As simple as that.
FILES WILL BE SENT OUT VIA DRIVETHRURPG. PLEASE ENSURE YOU HAVE A FREE ACCOUNT SET UP WITH THEM TO RECEIVE YOUR REWARDS.
Pledging for the Bridge will get you these STL files, delivered to your DriveThruRPG account shortly after completion of the project.
- Height Extender
- Base Ruin
- Height Ruin
- Walkway Ruin
- Walkway Ruin 2
That is 8 files for a mere $4NZD! (roughly $2.60 USD or £2) Insane value!
Do you want some extras? The Bridge Extras give you even more variety for the Bridge.
- Two Tiered walkway
- 4 Way Junction
- T Junction
- Toll Booth/Guard House
These 4 extras can also be yours for $4 extra ($8 The Big Bridge pledge or higher).
Or you can choose the Sacrificial Set STL files, which includes:
- The Sacrificial Circle
- Sacrificial Circle with candles
- Altar (5 pieces)
- Captive Pillar
- Open Portal insert
- Closed Portal insert
- Stone insert
- Floating Font insert
9 sculpts files for $4.
The Walls are an optional add on for your pledge.
To do this, click the blue "Manage Your Pledge" button at the top of the screen. Then click the blue "Change your Pledge" button down near the bottom of the screen and increase the amount by $4.
Alternatively, if you only want The Walls and nothing else then you can select that pledge level to your right.
Some of these files are rather large files.
The 4 way junction, the largest piece, can fit into a space 145.5mm x 145.5mm x 79mm or when using the cut version 80mm x 80mm x 79mm
The two tiered bridge is 50mm x 160mm x 132mm high or two pieces 50mm x 105mm x 88mm for the taller of the two and the wider being 50mm x 97mm x98mm
The walkway is 50mm x79mm x158mm. I have yet to chop this one into smaller pieces but I imagine it in two pieces would have no dimension greater than 100mm.
The Sacrificial Set has the tallest piece (The portals) measuring 79mm tall. The surrounding circle measures 100mm in diameter. The stone insert measures 58mm in diameter.
This time there are a few different reward levels
Keep up to date with the campaign. (Or just give me enough money to buy a frozen coke)
Pledge at this level and you will receive, via DriveThruRPG, 7 bridge files so that you can either create a bridge by itself or, even better, add it to your Wizard's Tower and make it even better! (Around US$2.65 or £2)
This pledge level gives you the Sacrificial Set. 8 further files to continue your magical enterprises.
This gives you all the 7 files of The Bridge, plus 3 extra files giving you even more possibilities for your Wizard's Tower. That's 10 files!
Get The Bridge and the Bridge Extras along with the Sacrificial Set. Enough printing to keep you going for... well a long time. A total of 18 files!
This is for those people that missed out on the first Kickstarter campaign. You will receive 10 files from the original campaign plus the 7 Bridge files, 3 Bridge Extra files and the 9 Sacrificial Set files. A total of 28 files!
The walkway ruin is unlocked for all people receiving The Bridge files (which includes, The Bridge, The Big Bridge, I Want It All! and I Want It All But I'm New Here! pledges).
The Sacrificial set has gained a piece that allows it to sit atop the tower top. All inserts will fit into this tower topper. It would look great atop the bridge section so that the bridge can lead to this section. This would expand the total different tower tops available to 4 (Conical Roof, Arcane Summit, Ruin and Sacrificial Circle)
The toll booth will has been unlocked. This is a standalone piece to sit beside the bridge beginning. It could be used as a toll booth or as a small guard house for the Tower. Check this update for printed pictures.
If we reach $2000 The Walls will become available as an optional Add On. This will consist of 20+ files for a wall to go around your Wizard's Tower. A price has not been set for this yet but will be shown if we reach $2000. Wall sections will insert into each other at a variety of angles. Each wall part is identical to the others but there will be 4 different pillars to make them look different. each of these different pillars will have 5 directions in which additional walls can be slotted. Straight 90 degrees left and right, 45 to the left and right. It will also include an ending pillar and an archway (which could be a great place to put the Tollbooth/Guardhouse).
If we reach this it will not be sent out until 2 weeks after the first rewards have been sent.
At $2500 The Wall Ruins have been added to all those that have pledged for the Wall. These fit together in a similar way to the Walls.
This last one is just a little freebie for anyone pledging, from $1 through to $1,000,000. A small entrance way for The Wizard's Tower. Check out update 9 for more information.
Test prints of the files. I usually like to test print in grey but I ran out of this and had to use silver, which I then also ran out of and had to use red.
I really do recommend using supports with these prints as they have many overhanging pieces. Especially the bridges.
So before my kids managed to wrangle these off me, I managed to take a few snaps of them. Sorry. I'm no photographer but this is mainly to give the idea that they can be printed. The larger files have also been split into smaller pieces (Only the T junction and walkway are left to do of these) so if you have a smaller print area you should still be able to use them.
Fulfillment of The Wizard's Tower - Expansion Sets will be completed through DriveThruRPG. Each backer will receive copies via their account. Fulfillment will begin as soon as possible. This should hopefully be within 2 weeks of the project funding. A survey will be sent out shortly after the project has funded to gather email addresses associated with DriveThruRPG accounts. Please note, this is the only way to gain these files. It will be advantageous to you as you will then have the files in your library so you can access them as often as you would like.

Risks and challenges
This is my second Campaign for STL files. The first one went smoothly in regards to fulfilling rewards. I learnt a couple of things to make it go even smoother but all rewards were ready to be sent out on the due date with many people receiving them within days of the close of the campaign.
Files are constantly backed up in the cloud so that they are kept safe in the unlikely event of my computer crashing big time.
