About

Whispering Tree Press wants to produce 32 super-high quality and high-resolution 3D printable heroic fantasy miniatures in the 28-30mm range for you to use with a resin SLA printer and print yourself. We already have two completed, tested, primed, and fully painted as seen in the pics below for you, our potential backers to see the quality and how well these figures printed out and painted up.

Whispering Tree Press is seeking funding to pay for the digital sculpting of the other 29 miniatures. Starting February 10th, we are going to do the skeleton and possibly one more during this Kickstarter. Updates will begin shortly after the start date during the duration of this Kickstarter. We already have two as pictured, but we need your help to fund the other 29. We didn't want to skip out on quality with our miniatures and professional 3D artists aren't cheap. We will provide you with a very highly detailed miniature in a very dynamic pose that you can print yourself or for your friends to use during your gaming sessions.

3D SLA Resin printers are coming into the market place full bore and we want to be at the forefront of it with quality 3D models that you can print, paint, collect, and play with at your gaming table. The new SLA resin 3D printers are amazing at what they can do, as minute detail down to the width of a human hair is possible now, so imagine how this can carry over to your miniatures! Our 3D models are only for use with SLA printers, however, and only these type of printers will produce the fine detail that is needed for our miniatures.

So what is so special about a STL file? Our STL files can be enlarged or shrunk down to whatever size your printer or printer service can handle. So, if you want a couple of regular statues to adorn your dungeon entrance, you can do it, paint them black and give them an aged look. Need giant statues in the Big Bad's hideout for that huge climatic battle? Just enlarge them and paint them up for aesthetics. How about a bust of your favorite character? No problem, enlarge it, trim off the extra and there ya go, a truly unique display for your gaming room or bookshelf!

How are these files going to be delivered and what's the process? We will post updates on the progress of each miniature as they happen (in truth, you will probably get tired of seeing all these updates, but we post them constantly), from initial sculpting to test printing. Once the sculpts are approved, we will test-print each model with several different printers and make any changes necessary to the 3d model to make it the easiest to print, while maintaining the high level of detail and quality. Once these test prints are approved, we will email you the STL file to you.

We've split the figures into two groups: monsters and playable characters. While some of the monsters are generic and can be played with most common fantasy games, over 70% of the monsters are unique to our own game system, The Chronicles of Ramlar RPG. But don't worry, we are offering you many avenues to use the miniatures in plenty of other games.

The picture below has the 16 monsters we are looking to produce. As shown above, the Rocar is done, and wow, is it a stunning model!

 The line of playable characters can be used in any fantasy rpg games, including the Spirinari, which is a unique race in the world of Ramlar. Below are the 16 Playable characters we want to produce in all their glory. The Kasmarkn Dwarf Warrior above is done and as you can see, another highly detailed model.

It doesn't matter if you play just DnD, Pathfinder or another game system, one of the pledge levels will include converted monsters stats and all their cool abilities. What better way to surprise your players at the game table than with a new monster they have never seen before?!

We currently offer all 16 monsters in PDF format with conversion stats for Dungeons & Dragons 5e and Pathfinder. We will offer adaptations to more games if there are enough demands. Below is a sample D&D5e conversion of the Rocar.

We are also including in the PDF Monster Pledge, printable 3.5" x 5" stat cards that fold, with the monster's illo on one side and stats on the other for any DM or GM to use on the fly. The sample below is the Rocar in 3.5" x 5" format for DnD5e.

So what if you don't want any of the STL files but want a great representation of our mini's? Well, we are offering all 32 miniatures as paper miniatures/PAWNS in a $1.00 ONLY PLEDGE! These are printable and in graytone. We'll have separate sheets with multiples of the same monster on them, like skeletons or goblins. The PDF will have two different sets of prints: white-backed, and ones with a black outline so if you want to omit the white rectangle background for better clarity, you have that option. (See the sample below.)

This Kickstarter is also doubling as a springboard of our RPG, The Chronicles of Ramlar. We had a successful run in the early 2000's and since Role Playing is popular again, we want to relaunch our line. We have pledge levels for entire RPG line as well, so be sure to check them out!

So why a reboot? We believe in the game system and think it is one of the most versatile role playing systems. If you want total control of your character, her/his ambitions, goals and destiny, this is the game for you!

What about the campaign setting? The world, Eranon, is vast and rich in detail, history and lore. You will never be at a loss for a place for a one-shot adventure, a dungeon crawl, or long awe-inspiring campaign. The deities are forever at odds and impact events, but your characters can still make a difference--even to the extent of remaking the world!

For relaunch, we are offering three core books: The Player's Guide, The World Guide, and Adversaries and Allies. We even have a pledge level just for retailers who wish to order and carry the game. Shown below are the new relaunch covers these books.

What is new in the re-launch? A new layout in all three books, over 150 new locales in Eranon, a new PC race, new spells, additional game mechanics, revised rules, new monsters, new art. The biggest news is that the forbidden continent Isidria's magical barriers have been destroyed by two of the dark gods, and the land is now accessible. Riches and fame await only the bravest of heart!

There's even an option for you to submit a monster (one entry only) for potential publication and induction into official Ramlar canon. Check the $1.00 Pawn Pledge level for this. Monster description should be 500 words or less and may not be larger than a large type creature. No gods, or over the top submissions please. At this time, when the Kickstarter launches we will publish five of the best submissions as judged by our panel. After reaching the funding goal, we will have stretch goals to increase the number of monsters published from submissions. So help spread the word and increase your chances of getting your creation into print and adding to a vibrant world! (See below on where to send your monster submission to.)

For those new to the Chronicles of Ramlar game setting, we have some breathtaking art inside our books. Here are some sample pics from within.

For those who REALLY want a guarantee to have something immortalized in the Ramlar canon, pledge to have a character or monster created for Ramlar and rendered in STL format for the backers. These pledge levels are limited, so act fast!

What will happen if you go over your funding? First and foremost that will be AWESOME! This will allow us to add even more great things to the Kickstarter in Stretch Goals and boy, do we have some awesome stuff just waiting in the wings to give to our backers and those who just want to purchase some of the unique things we are going to offer. All other funding will go toward future Chronicles of Ramlar products, as well as layout, design, and production. Future products include: Divine Might (deities sourcebook), Isidria:The Veiled Land, relaunch of One-Shot modules and regular modules, plus many other products still in development.

This is only the beginning! We have over 400 monsters and countless playable characters we want to produce. With the successful funding of this Kickstarter there will be many more offering the same quality and uniqueness these miniatures entailed. We hope you decide to join us on this exciting journey!

Thanks and Best!

John Prescott - CEO, Whispering Tree Press

Stretch Goals - We have a ton of stuff in store, a world renown artist doing a special monster of his creation and you get the STL file in all it's glory done just for this Kickstarter, exclusive Kickstarter only PAWNS, more monsters added from the submit your own monster pledge, Battle Mats, and much more all just waiting to be unlocked! Help us unlock them all!

 Legalities concerning our STL files - With this Kickstarter, if you pledge for STL files, this means you can print them out for yourself and your friends. You may not sell the STL file(s) to anyone or print them for monetary purposes/gain, unless you purchase a printing licence on that pledge level.

Want to get a SLA printer? The Kudo3D Bean is still available at about half the retail price! If you would like to know more send us a message and we will point you in the right direction!

Where do I send my Monster Submission? You may send your submission to monstersubks@gmail.com. You may include the submission in the body text of the email, but a word .doc file is preferred. Remember one entry only, and please put Monster Submission in the Subject Header of your email. *NOTE* You must have your submission to us before the Kickstarter ends to have your monster considered. Thanks!

Risks and challenges

The biggest obstacle is if someone becomes ill. Our PAWNS will be delivered within the first two weeks after funding. Our core rule books just needs to be laid out and some last illustrations added. We've allocated enough time to get this done, short of our printer running into problems or shipping delays.
If any problem arises that we have not foreseen, we will post an update stating said problem and what we are doing to fix it, and continue to update as we work through the problem
