Makes sense - thanks for confirming!
@Tesseract Labs - Sets purchased as an add-on do not receive the bonus coins, since that was a reward for backers who backed at higher levels during the campaign. But as a backer they will be priced at your lower rate.
Checking in based on the below comments - are add-on sets eligible for a bonus coin, or does the bonus only apply to the original pledge level? Thinking of adding on a set or two, and I'm wondering if that changes my bonus coin count.
Sweet all fixed. Thank you.
@ Nekkral - I'll email you directly so we can take a look.
typo- meant to say "give me" instead of "give be"
It also will not give be a fourth bonus coin when I add a fourth set... hm, this is getting on my nerves a bit... gonna just stop where i am at in the pledge manager for now. Try to calm down and figure out if I even want to do the add on now...
So, it says for four sets the shipping is free in the U.S. yet when I add a fourth set it still charges me shipping...
The dry or wet erase marker being usable on the coins is actually a superfrknawesome idea!
@Kristoffer Mikkelsen more dangerous opponents as the slash side... hells yeah champion level bad guys to throw at the party!
@Michael Richmond Update 6 covers which coins are available as bonus coins. Bonus coins can be any unlocked coins of large size or smaller (e.g. all coins from the campaign except purple worm, large dragon, and inspiration coins.)
Hi! I have a question about the bonus coins. Can they be a bonus coin from any set (e.g. the purple worm set) or only the 1-inch sets?
@Frank - This should have been corrected. From my side it seems to be working. If you are still having trouble can you please email us at email@example.com so we can pinpoint the error? Thanks!
I can't add the Undead set as an add-on in the backer kit. Is this a bug or intended?
Honestly I, too, misunderstood the Beast Stretch Goal (and it was why I'd gotten 2 coin sets as well;) I thought there'd be 2 sets of 12 beast coins to choose from, one meant to be Druid forms and the other monsters.
Thinking about it, @Dylan Dunne got a point about the communicated part. Not really fair to expect something different than what was campaigned for. Perhaps if the @Creator thought, this here campaign turned out to be a success, and wanted to make a new campaign for character coins, it could be a option?
Also i imagine the slashes side could also be used to indicate that it is a more deadly opponent (or something else with a little imagination), for those that don't care to much about corpses.
Ultimately, i'm looking forward to seeing the coins. Good job @Creator
@Nicole - I'm not sure what you mean by Druid Design? We didn't eliminate or change any designs from the unlocked sets, the only Druid option offered was the class set. We did mention the Beast Set as an option for druids to use as beast, but we were always very clear about 2 designs for this set. If you would like to email us to change your level please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
Why did you eliminate one of the stretch goals? There was one about having 2 styles to choose from for the druid design. I fully planned on taking advantage of that and it was part of my decision making in backing the project. You didn't even announce that you weren't going to do it anymore, even though it had been unlocked. You just quietly eliminated it from the post... This is really disappointing.
I have one thing to add about the "different monster instead of dead/wounded backside"-discussion: I've had quite a number of fights where placement of a downed fighter actually mattered. This design hence does make a lot of sense to me.
I do agree that a mixed spider/different animal set would have been a good idea. But I also know about the costs for an extra set of dies, so I can understand the creator.
Aw no bear in the beast pack? :'( (Who even uses felines??)
One thing to note on the generic humanoid - the flat design was created to allow you to mark the coin with dry or wet erase markers. This allows you to note different numbers or designs on the shield so you can track multiple token types.
Even if your monsters are either on board or off they still have the back side to represent an ongoing damage like fire, poison, curse, slowed, held, bleeding, and so many others. This gives a great way to keep track of which monsters are effected.
I will be using the back sides of each for severely wounded, ongoing negative effects, bloodied, dead (that died during combat in the encounter), corpses (that start the encounter dead, and potentially can be raised or search or a movement obstacle), or unconscious and am very glad that they have that set up. Would hate to see that done away with and would not back in the first place had they not been so perfectly set up for that very useful set of mechanics. But yeah spider set would have been better with six spiders and six rats (,still each with a dead side). Even in a drow campaign twelve is a lot of spiders. Beasts being only two things doesnt give the versatility for random forest encounters, gladiator arenas, ranger pets, wizard familiars, and druid transformations, that it should have, so needs to be twelve different each with a dead side.
Neither of my posts is meant to reflect negatively on this campaign. Personally I backed three set and I see three PERFECT! sets. So I am ecstatic that I backed. I will be using the three sets frequently and showing them off. Plus they all double as in game currency moc ups.
Was really expecting 12 different beasts and 12 different generic humanoids in those sets. I am now very glad that I only backed 3 sets. Was seriously considering adding two more sets before. It seems that I backed just the right amount now, like spot on perfect guess on my part. 1 gold 12 diff heroes, 1 silver orcs and goblins, and one silver zombies and skeletons it will be.
@Chris Steel and @Kristoffer Mikkelsen, part of me agrees with you, but for 2 things:
1 - I plan on using the broken sides as "Bloodied" a la the 4th edition mechanic, I find it useful.
2 - The downed style on the back was what was communicated, and I'd feel a little jilted if they changed the plan for the product after funding was over.
The generic humanoid style does not seem to match the others.
12 spiders is a lot to put into one encounter, possibility of a vermin set with 6 spiders, 6 rat swarm?
Reiterate, would be better product with alternative monsters on flip sides. A major appeal is quality tokens for travelling DM - without efficiency (for transport) and variation (to distinguish on the battlefield), youre literally competing against spare change.
I too agree with @Chris Steele.
But would like to add that, if the other side of generic humanoid could be more civilian looking person. It would be great.
I agree with @Chris Steele's comments. Is it too late for this? That would make these coins even more amazing than they already are.
I really like these, but a suggestion to the back of the monster coins - maybe different “alive” images? I don’t know about everyone, but in my games monsters are either on the board or they are not. So it seems like a wasted opportunity to not just put alt-images on the backs instead of broken images, or slashes.
So maybe Goblin/Kobold and orc/bugbear. Same with undead and beasts. Two versions of humanoid would be far more useful than a humanoid one side and something most will never use on the other.
(The dragons are cool though, don’t change those.)
Looking good. The broken rogue is particularly clever and gave me a good chuckle at the heartbreak it would cause to some of my more acquisitive players.
