(House keeping - This campaign is for 3d printer .STL files via download for you to print at home. No tangible/printed products are included in any of our pledges.)
! ALL STRETCH GOALS ARE UNLOCKED !
We are expanding our 3d printable terrain line and need your help to make this Corrupted Forest Collection become available to Tabletop Gamers around the world. The three product lines featured in this campaign include the Rock Formation Collection #1, Grass Floor Tiles (slopes) Collection #1 and Spooky Trees Collection #1. As a result of wanting to make some thematic stretch goals we have also expanded the line to include a Hag's Cottage and a Hermit's Cottage for all our "Corrupted Forest" level supporters.
Background: Enchanted to Corrupted Forest -
Needing an outdoor terrain setup in our own AD&D campaign we set out to make a corrupted forest environment with grass floor tiles, rock formations and spooky trees. This is such a versatile set of terrain you could paint it so everything is green, lush, vibrant for an enchanted theme adventure or and add snow for a winter themed excursion.
How did the forest get corrupted you ask? There are many ideas on how this happened and the most common one is that a hideous hag crawled into the enchanted Ironwood Forest during the night and what was once green and full of life gave way to a foul smell and darkness. It started with a gloomy fog shortly after that is when the Sprites and Pixies abandoned the forest. The kobolds, ogres and an etten moved in. The trees withered and the souls of the trees grew dark and began eating what was unnatural to them. What was once a lush hillside now exposed the rocks and boulders to which it was built on like a skeleton of decaying massive creature. The hideous hag's corruption has stretched far and now the townsfolk speaks of whispers in the night while children go missing.
War Gamer -
This terrain will work for you! The floor tiles are 4 inch by 4 inch so covering a scurage 4x4 table is pretty easy. The tiles lock together so you can actually get things into place very quickly. The rocks and spooky trees provide cover and a different war gaming envorment.
Spooky Tree Collection #1
There is no wind in this part of the forest and yet the trees seem to be creaking. If you look long enough at a tree you can clearly see its branches have moved. Are the trees in this forest waking? and if so what un-natural magic has cause this to happen? Was it the elves or something evil! This collection has the spooky trees you been waiting for. We have twisting branches, mushrooms, fungus, murk, tangled roots and a tree with a Pixie door! 2 of the trees in this collection have slots for LED's and a battery. All Spooky Tree .STL files are 100mm on the long side be it top to bottom or right to left.
Once this Kickstarter Campaign ends this set will retail on our site for 15$.
Grass Floor Tiles Collection #1
Grass Floor Tiles Collection #1 - Ohh ya! we been needing some outdoor floor tiles. We have tiles that are flat, some with a fairy circle and some that slope! They interlock via OpenLOCK and get this, we made the slope tiles with two tiers for connecting! This will allow you to combine slope tiles to make taller hills and ridges. The tiles are 4 inch by 4 inch for quick setup and easy storage.
Once this Kickstarter Campaign ends this set will retail on our site for 15$.
Rock Collection #1
Time to break out the earth elemental and place it in its native environment! If your an adventure type player then the rock terrain is not something we see often. How about a set of rocks the Druids raised to do their pagan rituals - They Must Be Stopped! We have 2 cave entrance formations, which are a great way to lead your party down into the caverns or perhaps this is where the Kobolds surprise attack the weary adventures! One of the Rocks was designed to fit a LED and battery inside it. The Rocks provide all types of cover and topology for the War gamer! The Rock Collection range in size from about 1 inch to 4 inches in height or width.
Once this Kickstarter Campaign ends this set will retail on our site for 30$.
Corrupted Forest Stretch Goals -
Corrupted Forest backers these stretch goals when unlocked belong to you! Currently the stretch goals will be working around more Spooky Trees, hag and hermits cottages. The two units have a thatched roof and are made using stones found locally. The hay covered floors help keep the floor warm during the cold season however they do make good cover for the lurking bugs. The doors are built into the pieces as they print. Once printed simply clip away the supports to release the door. No glueing pieces together its that simple. The thatched roofs are hollowed out so you can add in some LED's. It gets better! The hag's cottage has a cauldron in front of the back window. Under the cauldron the piece is slotted to fit some LED's and a battery! Cook it up!
The stretch goals will grow as we get more support.
Possibilities: With 3d Printers we are able to make complex pieces and in most cases as 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.
With that in mind we have every intention of taking advantage of this technology and pushing tabletop gaming terrain/scenery to an unparalleled level.
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 made a promise to you in our 1st Kickstarter, we would continue to make affordable designs and offer discounts on our crowd funding campaigns. This Kickstarter is a fruition of that promise. More to come!
3d Printers in 2018: 3D Printing is affordable and easy to use! Currently there are good 3d printers 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.
Personal 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 is our second Kickstarter campaign and is another step in that direction. Once this campaign is over each piece will be listed on our website for 30-50% more. 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 a continuation of our loyal partnership with you. Thank you for believing in us, thank you for being our partner.
Risks and challenges
Risk? By the time the crowd funding campaign comes to a close 100% of the designs will be ready for downloading. No need to wait a year or several months to play your game pieces.
