ALL STRETCH GOALS HAVE BEEN UNLOCKED! 24$ GETS YOU 30 STL FILES!
(hint we are showing the pieces in the middle of the Dark Elf terrain)
We have a unique vision that will bring a more robust visual experience and expand the player interaction at the gaming table.
Currently many 3d printer terrain designers are making the needed basic foundation pieces such as doors, floors, walls and corners. We are thankful for their contributions and plan on advancing the tabletop experience.
This Water Feature Collection was created for our personal AD&D campaign. While designing a Dark Elf Cavern* deep in the Underdark we wanted a reason for our players to interact with the terrain. We came up with the idea of having a bunch of pool, spouts and bowls that have random magical effects. Drawing up a d20 water effect generator, characters that drink from the waters experience an effect for a short time.
Fantasy RPG: Its nice to be able to print terrain that will work with your Dungeons & Dragons or Pathfinder campaign that looks great and have an interaction effect! As stated above we have play tested random temporary effect for players that drink from the waters.
Drinking from the waters could cause the adventurer to instantly cluck like a chicken gaining +5 initiative on the next encounter or whistle a quick melody gaining +5 to next dexterity check or the water could restore d4 health. Not all waters offer a benefit some could require the adventurer to eat rations or suffer d4 damage. Great concept and adds great value for interaction with the terrain.
SiFi Gaming: Spacefinder! AVP! Star Wars! Warhammer 40K! Finally something different for SiFi gamers. Fly me to the nearest system and when we land we can lay siege on the hostile alien life forms. Of course they might be showing signs of agitation because we landed during the harvest season when they are collecting new offspring right from the viscus liquid pools. Scale the pieces larger to make super sized pools and increase the cover. Put your objectives in the middle of the terrain and let the strategy begin!
Fantasy Wargaming: Goblins look out! The Dwarves are coming home and bring the battle to the deep caverns they once called home. Its fun to fight in the open fields but this time we are fighting its all about navigating though a cavern.
You're going to love our HDx3D files: With the Mystic-Realm High Definition detail and creative designs all you need to do is print using the PLA color of your choice and set the piece into play. Take your piece to the next level by painting it! It's easy, in fact we have how to paint our terrain videos posted on our Youtube Channel and are going to post more videos showing pieces from this campaign. In the videos we will also show you how to add clear resin to give a nice depth to the pools of water. Customize even further by adding grass or sand or LED's!

We sent the 16 piece set, printed & painted with water effects to Nerdarchy and Draven's RPG Review and here is what they had to say.
Ted from Nerdarchy: I absolutely love the stuff. They can easily blend into other terrain pieces I have or standout as needed. I would certainly recommend them to any who actually has a 3d printer.
Dave from Draven's RPG Review: I'm sure any gamers out there who own a 3D printer would love to make their own terrain, and these designs are some of the nicest I've ever seen.
Dave also posted an unboxing video and showed each piece. - Unboxing Video
In Game Mechanics: When a players drink from the waters they will be granted a temporary effect. Once a player drinks from the water source they are numb to receiving the effect again until after a short or long rest. However! the water effect changes the next time the player drinks from it, have player roll for effect result. The water when collected into a vessel loose the effect so it can't be stored for later use. Most of the effects wear off quickly but some wear off after a short or long rest. In general we do not stack effects. We let the player who drinks the waters roll a d20 and read off the taste and effect for everyone to hear. Lastly, you can change the effects, taste, let effects stack or even let players store some collected water if you wish, its your campaign Have Fun!
Possibilities: With 3d Printers we are able to make complex pieces in a single print which is drastically different from the traditional method of making the same piece using molds. With molds a complex design piece require us to make parts and then glue them together to create the same type of piece. Designing gaming terrain using software gives us the ability to make high definition simple AND complex terrain designs at a level not seen until now.
With that in mind we have every intention of taking advantage of this technology and pushing tabletop gaming terrain/scenery to an unparalleled level, this is just the beginning.
We See Eye to Eye: We want you to know we are doing this for both of us! You have a 3d Printer and are already part of the future or perhaps getting ready to jump in. All you need is someone to design new quality content at a fair price, We promise you, we will continue to make affordable designs and offer discounts on our crowd funding campaigns.
3d Printers in 2017: 3D Printing is affordable and easy to use! Currently there are good 3d printers such as the Monoprice Select Mini v2 pricing in at just over 200$ and PLA plastic for printing is less then 20$. With your own printer and files everyone can now make unlimited pieces for your tabletop gaming adventures.
Backstory: A few years ago my wife and I created Mystic-Realm and began creating tabletop gaming terrain. Sculpts were made by hand using clay and a full range of tools. We made silicone molds and hand casted each piece using resin. Together we painted each peace offering them on eBay and our website. It has been an incredible experience with lots of fun and now we are moving into the future with 3d printing. This campaign is the first step in that direction. Once this campaign is over each piece will be listed on our website at 2$ per piece. This is your chance to get the collection at a discount with free stretch goals as they unlock. We are looking for hardcore gamers like yourselves who love tabletop gaming with high quality 3D terrain.
This is the beginning of a loyal partnership with you. Thank you for believing in us, thank you for being our partner.
Risks and challenges
Nearly every design is complete, we just need a little bit more funding to finish the last few models. By the time the crowd funding campaign comes to a close we expect to have 100% of the plans ready for download. No need to wait a year or several months to play your game pieces.
As a courtesy and a big thank you for supporting us, we will also post videos of some of the models being printed (time-lapse), painted and how to add liquid resin for that nice liquid depth.
