Have a question?
Any idea when backer surveys will be sent out?
@michael one is your standard ship it to your house pledge. The other one is for folks going to a convention in the UK to pick it up there in person.
What is the timetable for selecting our dice finish?
I keep forgetting to ask but what are the differences between the two £27 rewards?
Congratulations! Glad I could contribute to such a good project.
Congratulations - see you in Essen, friends!
WooHoo - well done :)
Well done guys! Like all the backer's, I'm very much looking forward to seeing these beautiful dice! Just glad I could help my little bit. They are beautiful! I think I'm going for the old silver! That's red and brass though...
Congrats everybody and thank you!! these dice would never seen the light without your efforts. Now working on product finalization, maybe we can stretch more..... :)
Very cool to be a part of it! I am very happy to meet you in Essen on Spiel again!
Wow, great effort folks!
Well, we didn't quite make the fudge dice cut. I'm a little sad... but I'm still SO EXCITED about these!
Only 15 minutes left!
We're -so- close to fudge dice.... sooooo close.
and we're 201! congrats and thanks all new and veteran backers.
WOWZERS! This has climbed nicely... congrats on top of congrats!!!
Hi just pledged for you was looking at getting 5 d6 ones do u just need me to pledge £25 or will there be an option after it ends thanks Elliott.
Hi everyone! One of the problems with going to all these shows is that your body forces you to take a day off every now and again (this is what happened yesterday), but coming back today not only have we unlocked another strecth goal(!!!!!) but we're actually pretty close to unlocking the fudge dice as well!
Welcome to all the new backers! (messages & update being written up now) - we are on the last day today so if you could all give one last push to share, tweet and let everyone know about Terralith then that would be AMAZING!!!
@Zachary & Guodin - for add-ons just include the additional amount in your pledge and I'll get in touch once the campaign ends to get the details of which add-on you would like
@Lavaeolous - Battle Finishes are totally included in the £27 tier =)
Are the Battle Finishes included in the 27£ tier?
Just wondering. How do I put in add-ons ?
Battle finish isn't listed in the pledge levels. I'm assuming that we can just choose battle, in place of unlimited, raw or galvanic though?
How do I put add-ons in my pledge?
WOW! A little bit overwhelmed today. We got back from the UKGE last night after showcasing Terralith and demoing games - utterly incredible to see so many new backers (welcome!) and a really fun time with the hand modelling competition (see http://www.grublin.com/UKGE-15 if you're not sure what I'm talking about;) - we won best family game for Waggle Dance so I've been a completely inundated with emails, phone calls, facebook & twitter messages, posts, notifications the whole lot & we've smashed past our next stretch goal!!!!! Like a tsunami of amazing things! Focusing on editing the rolling vids, getting an update up, a newsletter out and as much as I can do before I finally collapse into a happily grinning ball of happiness=D But until then, there's much work to do! We're into the last days of the project now so please, keep sharing and let's have one final push to let as many people know about Terralith as we possibly can! Utterly incredible!!!!
I can see there's a clear winner for the next Battle Finish (I've made the poll results public for those that would like a sneak preview: http://www.grublin.com/terralith/battle_finish_poll;) so I'll update the main page image now=D (this is turning into more of an update than a comment so I'd best stop otherwise I'll never get this video edited!!!) WOW!!!!!!!!!
Great to see you guys at the expo. Also, well done on your coup for best family game!
Saw these at the Birmingham Games Expo on Friday, knew I needed a green D20 and decided it was worth getting the whole set - and to think I almost didn't stop at the stand!
When will the winner of the survey for the second battle finish colour be announced?
Looking forward to seeing you guys at the Expo tomorrow (though you are all probably there now). Good to see another strong campaign under your belt too.
Hi Drea, sure thing - you can see a larger image via: http://www.grublin.com/image/terralith-battle-finish-choices ...just don't forget to vote after having a look!=) http://bit.ly/battle_voting
Busy putting all the finishing touches together for showcasing Terralith at the UK Games Expo before we leave tomorrow - full update incoming!
Are there closeup images of the battle finishes so we can see all the details?
Welcome to all the new backers over the weekend and thanks to everyone for voting for their favourite Battle Finish! If you haven't already, then don't forget to vote! >>> http://bit.ly/battle_voting
hi Mechell: BZ + red is cool, and already in development list. :)
I would love to see a BZ+red (two of my favorite colors) thanks for replying so quick too :D
well Drea, how can i say no? :) silver purple in the queue, black red... i ll do my best!
I'd still like to see silver/purple and black/red. I think those would look great together!
Dear Mechell, thank you for your encouragement! we do love encouragements!
Colors: unlimited is cool , i like it, but i also delicate and, unless you don't care of their safety as me you can roll them and see the battles take their tolls on the varnish; Unlimited is best for collectors. On the other hand Battle finish also look gorgeus and more readable to me, but more, i can roll it without thinking too much the varnish (color) wears off, as it already has! ( the battle is that: color took away from protrutring/embossed parts, then transparent varnished to stabilize both color and galvanic).
So if you want to have some of these color combination tested just name it starting from this point:
1) choose a galvanic finish: Old Silver, Old Brass, Old COpper, Black Zamak.
2) choose a color: white, yellow, red, purple, green, blue, orange.
like for examp: BZ+Orange, OB+Green etc. (last one actually already in list for testing)
i have 2 sets x each base Galvanic ready for test, just name the galvanic/color combo and next wednesday i'll be finalizing them. -
tnx Mechell and all for your help!, stay tuned
I just wanted to stop by and say how excited I am for these dice to be finished! They look beautiful and roll pretty uniform. I can't wait to see how all the colors come out what's everyone's favorite so far? I'm pretty pumped about this "battle finish." As for suggestions to color options, maybe you could do similar concepts but with colors like red and purple ect. Keep up the great work guys :)
Taken a bit longer than expected, but I've just added the first of the dice rolling videos (Old Silver) to the front page. Videos of the other finishes are just uploading to Vimeo and photos are _almost_ finished (they've taken MUCH longer than expected!!!)
What would you think about making pledge rewards for bundles that give a possible discount for getting the bundles? This could take away the math from people wanting multiple sets and offer incentives for pledging multiple sets at once. It could also help increase your pledge amounts. After seeing the prototype pictures, I know I'd definitely be interested in a bundle.
Maybe something like:
Galvanic Bundle: Black Zamak, Old Brass, Old Silver and Old Copper
Unlimited Bundle: Purple, Orange, Blue and Green
Rare metal Bundle: Gold, Palladium and Ruthenium
Also, I noticed the addon sets don't include the rare metals, so this might help
I figured that might be the case. Looking forward to seeing the alternate colors!
@Drea : tnx for you suggestion, unfortunately is tecnically possible but not affordable: to have number stand out you have 2 choices: paint them or "polish" them: painting or polishing the single numbers would really raise their price too much; consider the number design (embossed instead of engraved), allow the tumbling/polishing process to actually make numbers stand out (showing galvanic finish) in contrast to oxidized parts (deeper parts, darkened): this is especially effective on galvanic metal finish ( OS, OB, OC). On unlimited color is more difficult to notice: you still have darker areas around embossed details on metal galvanic but everything is covered by a thin layer of color: we're right now testing with alternate colorings, that will be probably added to stretch goals, and will show numbers better, being a mix of colored areas and galvanic finish bursting out on emboss. The final suggestion is that you can actually take a small caliper or nail and carefully scrat color away from numbers, or paint them; i do this to my personal colllections, but again, it would be incredibly expensive to mass produce. tnx for your suggestion, stay tuned for developments!
Would love to see colors where the numbers show up in contrast to the rest of the dice. Right now the numbers are kind hard to see. But if the numbers were in white/yellow on the darker dice, or black on the lighter dice, this would really make them pop. Not sure if this is possible with the complicated design though.
so i'm back in the color lab, to see if we can arrange some new weird colors.... (spoiler alert!,, too late)
Well done everyone!!!! and THANK YOU!!!!
Utterly and completely AMAZING!!! Davide & I ended up jointly celebrating last night so we've been taking a short break today to recover and will have a project update up tomorrow with some details on stretch goals=D
So I just wanted to say THANK YOU!!! to you all for your utterly incredible support for Terralith, welcome to all our new backers and thank you to everyone for sharing the project and really helping so much to make these dice a reality!!
WE ARE MAKING TERRALITH!!!!!!!!
@Martin - I've updated the add-ons image to include additional sets of 7 dice=)
Brilliant, well done!!
congraz on funding
Hello friends of wonderful dice! I cannot find a part in the campaign, where the price is defined, if want to pledge a second set of the dice. Must I pay the price for the add- on dice or can I pay the set- price from the first? Thank you for feedback.
Extra, Big, Thanks!
to my personal dice "guru" Kevin Cook and his great database ( i must admit he has more Irondrake dice than me); i rely on him when i want to know if some new concept i am designing is similar to something already existing! Thanks for posting ref. images.
And a thank to all dice collectors, that share with me the passion for sacred geometries.
