About

Welcome back to Dicey Ventures Studios!

Dicey Ventures Studios is very happy to welcome you to our second Kickstarter Campaign, featuring the 28mm fantasy terrain set, the Elemental Village

 

                                   

 

The Elemental Village is a set of 28mm fantasy terrain that is designed to be used with and for any tabletop wargame or adventure game. 

Unlike most of the cookie-cutter, medieval style terrain that's currently available, the Elemental Village offers a completely new aesthetic experience for your tabletop battles and adventures. 

Designed with just the right combination of cartoon proportion, chibi-style cuteness, and fantastical whimsy that is more commonly found in video games, the Elemental Village takes each of the five most common fantasy elements and brings them to life with character and flare. 

1 | ARCANE

Each DIGITAL Arcane Element Pack comes with:

- STL Files for the Arcane Library and the Arcane Temple

In addition to everything in the DIGITAL Arcane Element Pack, the PHYSICAL Arcane Element Pack also comes with:

- 1 resin Arcane Library model

- 1 resin Arcane Temple model

 

 

 

 

2 | EARTH

Each DIGITAL Earth Element Pack comes with:  

- STL Files for the Earth Tavern and the Earth Dwelling

In addition to everything in the DIGITAL Earth Element Pack, the PHYSICAL Earth Element Pack also comes with:

- 1 resin Water Mill model

- 1 resin Water Dwelling model

 

 

 

 

5 | AIR

Each DIGITAL Air Element Pack comes with:

- STL Files for the Air Town Hall and the Air Dwelling

In addition to everything in the DIGITAL Air Element Pack, the PHYSICAL Air Element Pack comes with:

- 1 resin Air Town Hall model

- 1 resin Air Dwelling model

 

 

 

 

While not an element itself, what village would be complete with a hearty Fortification structure to keep its axe wielding villagers safe and sound? 

& FORTIFICATIONS

Each DIGITAL Fortifications Pack comes with the STL files for:

- Fortification Tower

- Flat Roof Wall Pieces (Long & Short)

- Flat Roof Wall Corner Piece

- 4 resin Flat Roof Wall Pieces (Short)

- 4 resin Flat Roof Wall Corner Pieces

- 4 resin Tower-to-Wall Adapter Pieces

 

 

Note: The Elemental Village is available both as resin cast models and as .STL files for 3D Printing. 

Why both Resin Cast and 3D Printing?

Today's tabletop gamers are branching out and embracing the rising technology available in 3D printers. Hobbyists all over the world are buying printers and creating amazing works right in their own home. 

We want to make the Elemental Village terrain line available to as many hobby gamers as possible, so we decided to offer every model in the line in both physical and digital formats.

If you have a 3D printer and would like to print your own terrain, we can help you do that.

If you want terrain that comes to you ready-to-paint, we can help you get that. 

We have compiled several tier levels to choose from. Some are DIGITAL ONLY, and others are both DIGITAL & PHYSICAL. Even if you don't currently have a use for the 3D printable .STL files, we include them in all tier levels that include PHYSICAL rewards. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Elemental Packs

Below you can browse all of the DIGITAL and PHYSICAL Add-Ons for the Elemental Village. 

The Add-Ons are in two basic groups: DIGITAL and PHYSICAL, with prices noted. If you have backed at a lower Tier and want to add some extras, this is the place to find all the extras you need. 

Just remember to increase your Pledge Amount to match what Add-Ons you want! 

Digital Add-Ons

Physical Add-Ons

 

We're hoping that the Elemental Village Kickstarter doesn't just stop at our Funding Goal. Instead, we're counting on all of our amazing backers to help push the Elemental Village to new heights that right now we're only dreaming of! 

Once we hit our original Funding Goal, Round 1 of the Stretch Goals will unlock, and the Elemental Village will have a chance to get a whole lot bigger. 

After that, well, you'll just have to see what's in store.  

Round One

All of the Round One stretch goals are FREE in digital format, meaning that once a Round One goal is unlocked, it is automatically added to the .STL files for its respective Elemental Pack. For Example: When the Round One Air Element stretch goal is unlocked, any Backer receiving the Air Element Pack (DIGITAL) will receive the .STL file(s) for that model for FREE.

All PHYSICAL version of the Round One stretch goals can be added to your pledge by increasing your pledge amount to account for the price of the unlocked terrain model below.

The first of the Free Stretch Goals, the Earth Monument serves as a focus for those with an affinity towards the element of earth as well as a rallying point for the village in times of crisis.

Harnessing the power of wind to help with industry, the Wind Mill serves not as a competitor to the Water Mill but rather as a complement. 

The water spirits are prone to fits of rage and unease, unleashing storms and floods at will. The Spirit Ward keeps the water elements at peace and regulates rainfall and river alike. 

Ever pursuing martial excellence, most warriors come from the Fire Element, as befits their nature. The Fighting Pit gives the denizens of the Elemental Village a place to let off steam and train to new martial heights. 

The arcane permeates all life, even the elements, and makes it possible to achieve feats otherwise out of the grasp of mortals. The Gateway allows for travel to and from other locations across the land. 

Round Two: Premium Stretch Goals

All of the terrain models in Round Two are premium models that are designed to take the Elemental Village to the next level. Both DIGITAL and PHYSICAL Round Two goals must be added to a basic pledge in order to receive them. 

Any unlocked Round Two goal can be added to your pledge by increasing your pledge to account for the price of the unlocked terrain model below. 

An ancient, monolithic defender, the Stone Guardian sits at the entrance to the Elemental Village, slumbering the years away as it waits a time when it will be called upon to awaken and defend the village and its people. 

Propped high into the sky, the Observatory allows those with a skyward fascination to observe all around them, day or night. 

A calming, peaceful area amidst the bustle of the village, the Reflection Pool allows those with a want to be healed in mind and spirit by the sound of water to gain perspective and seek guidance. 

A mighty hall of heroes and legends, the Hall of Warriors stands as a testament to both the warriors of today, and the fallen of the past. 

Some Arcane Libraries gain so much knowledge that they have to be expanded to account for further areas of study, experimentation, and to hold the massive amounts of research materials that usually follows the practice. The Arcane Tower takes the centerpiece of the Elemental Village, the Arcane Tower, and expands it upwards and out, making it the centerpiece not just of a village, but an entire region. 

Round Three: Build a Town (Premium)

The Round Three Stretch goals are a bit different from the first two rounds. When Round Three unlocks, Dicey Ventures will invite our Backers to partake in the magic

For each new building that unlocks in Round Three, we will host a Developer Stream on Twitch where our Art Director will design LIVE a brand new building, themed to the unlocked element. All with the help of our Backers (you) LIVE in chat!

Throughout the course of the Kickstarter Campaign, we will need the help of all of our Backers to spread the word and help us unlock our Stretch Goals. 

To help make that a fun and exciting process for all of us, we've got some special goals and prizes that can be unlocked by helping us get the word out to everyone. 

From special Twitch.tv streams to more content, and even an accessory pack (maybe more?), these social goals are meant to help us get to know you and for you to provide us with the support and the encouragement needed to help make the Elemental Village one of the best tabletop terrain collections anywhere. 

Click away, and let everyone know about....well....everything!

 

 

Risks and challenges

While we've done all that we can to mitigate risks and challenges to fulfillment of this Kickstarter, there still remains a degree of the unknown with a project of this potential scope.

While we are working with our partners to secure reliable and scale-able manufacturing processes, it is possible that the Kickstarter campaign reaches a level that would outpace the ability to produce everything in time.

Should this happen, we will be forthcoming with that information and revise the timeline ASAP in order to make sure that everything is out in the open and goes as smoothly as possible.
