PLEASE NOTE: Each pledge level includes all previous pledge levels.

The optional Add-On sets (Windmill, ruins, dungeons, etc.) shown below must be added to your top level pledge, these are OPTIONAL sets and not included in any pledge level.

We do not use an after-campaign pledge manager. All pledges must be in by the end of the campaign.

DRAGONLOCK™ (patent pending) is an all-new interlocking terrain system that allows you to create fully modular, multi-level 28mm scale village terrain for your RPG or wargame on your home 3D printer. Each set is delivered in a downloadable .stl format via our online distribution partner DriveThruRPG.com, and once you have the set, you can print as many pieces as you like and never run out or need to purchase more. This new terrain system is the culmination of eleven years of gaming terrain design experience.

By supporting us through Kickstarter, you get bonus models that won't be available later, and access to free stretch rewards. We have been in the 'print-and-play' terrain business for over eleven years, and have successfully delivered seven previous Kickstarter projects, so you can pledge with confidence that we will deliver a high-quality product on time. 

FREE STRETCH REWARDS that will increase the size of the terrain offerings will be available to anyone pledging at the $45 level or higher. Spread the word about this project to your friends and post about it on Facebook, Twitter, Google+, etc., and GET FREE BONUS MODELS as the pledges rise!

A standard wall piece costs around $0.25 in plastic to print yourself, far cheaper than factory-made terrain! All of the models shown were printed at 100-150 micron resolution, a common standard on most economical 3D printers. A really nice starter printer that can print these files starts around $390 (see our F.A.Q. for more info on printers, printing costs, filaments, and more.)

Even if you don't currently own a 3D printer, it benefits you to support this campaign now. You can get all of the free stretch rewards, exclusive content in some sets not available later, and have a digital library of village terrain ready to go when you do purchase a printer.

All miniatures shown in our video and promotional shots are by Reaper Miniatures (www.reapermini.com

All models were printed on Printrbot Play & Simple 3D printers (www.printrbot.com)

 Our models feature hyper-detailed sculpting. As printer resolutions continue to increase in years to come, your models won't become obsolete due to bland surface textures.

 

Add-ons are optional terrain sets that are not included in the base pledge rewards. You can get any or all of these great sets by adding the appropriate amount for them to your total pledge (e.g., if you want to add the windmill to your existing $89 level pledge, you would need to revise your pledge to $109, and then in the after-campaign survey, mark down that the extra $20 was for a windmill set.)

Risks and challenges

Fat Dragon Games is a small company, and we need to be careful what subjects we choose to proceed with for production. One or two poorly selling sets could hurt our company severely. By putting potential projects up on Kickstarter, we can be sure if there is demand for that subject before devoting our resources to it. We also get to connect directly with our customers, rewarding those who are early supporters for a set with cool stuff like exclusive pieces not available to customers who purchase the set later on, and free stretch rewards. We have been in the print-and-play terrain business for over eleven years, having released over one hundred and sixty terrain sets, and have had seven previous Kickstarter campaigns successfully funded and delivered, so supporters of this project can feel completely confident in our ability to deliver a high-quality product as promised.
