Stretch Goal 5 Reached, BASIC Set expanded & Fantasy Decor 2
Stretch Goal 5 Unlocked!
Now all of the original tile designs and four backer requested tile designs are unlocked! This Stretch goal unlocked stair tile S1/S2 which is a switch back stair and a spiral stair. Tile W5/W6 is for making fortress towers with thickened walls and arrow loops. Tile W2/W4 is a long wall section for a crenelatted battlement and a thickened wall with arrow loops on the flip side.
When used with the the W1/W3 tile, you can make a fortress and represent the battlements on top of the walls and the thickened walls of the lower levels.
BASIC Set Expanded!
The core BASIC set was 6 tiles each of 8 designs for a total of 48 tiles. In early planning for the project, it was my intent that the stair tile designs be part of the core BASIC set. For various reasons, I had to pull it out. With the overwhelming success of this campaign, I am now able to include them in the BASIC set.
So now, all BASIC Sets (including the BASIC Set Add-On) will be the original 48 tiles plus 6 of the S1/S2 tile for a total of 54 tiles.
The Basic Expansion (1/2 set) Add-On will also be increase to receive 3 of the S1/S2 stair tiles so will now be a total of 27 tiles.
Bonus Tiles to Pledges!
As per previous Stretch Goals, Bonus tiles are added to the Pledge Rewards.
SAMPLER receives 1 of each new tile - 3 total.
All other Pledge levels receive 1 of each W5/W6 and W2/W4 for every full BASIC set in their reward. (As indicated above, each BASIC set is also receiving 6- S1/S2 tiles) .
BASIC Pledge Levels receive 1 of each (W5/W6 & W1/W3) - 2 total. This reward will now contain 48 (core BASIC) + 6 (stair tiles) + 10 (bonus tiles) for a total of 64 tiles.
HARDCORE Pledge Levels receive 2 of each (W5/W6 & W1/W3) - 4 total. This reward will now contain 120 (core Hardcore) + 12 (stair tiles) + 20 (bonus tiles) for a total of 152 tiles.
RETAIL Pledge Levels (for sticks and bricks retail gaming stores) receive the current BASIC Pledge Level rewards x10.
PATRON and BENEFACTOR receive 3 of each (W5/W6 & W1/W3) - 6 total. These rewards now contain 144 (3 BASIC sets) + 18 (stair tiles) + 180 (Expert, Advanced & Backer Requested) for a total of 342 tiles.
BENEFACTOR also receives a set of Custom tiles which is about the equivalent of a BASIC set in coverage (5sf to 6sf) depending upon what they choose to do.
Expansion Tiles Set 5 Add-On +$10: Add 12 total tiles, 6 each of of W2/W4 and W5/W6. Shipping is included.
Other Add-On Combinations? Now that everything in unlocked that I had initially planned, I will be reviewing the Add-On sets. Specifically, I plan to do one with all of the W-series wall tiles so that a complete fortress with four corner towers, a gate house, and a central tower keep can be assembled. Feel free to let me know of any other expansion combinations that you would be interested in seeing.
New Bonus Decor
Fantasy Decor 2 - Strange Creatures and Spell Effects - The following two 4x6 cards will be printed on cardstock and included in each Pledge level from SAMPLER and above.
Future Stretch Goals?
What is next? I was not sure that this project would open all of the tile designs but I have been proven wrong. We still have some time left and we can now we can do what makes Kickstarter awesome - YOU chart out the direction for new products! Send me comments about what direction you would like the Kickstarter to now pursue. I will pull all of the comments together and make a poll near the end of this week.
For any new options however there are many factors I will need to evaluate...I need to consider any new fabrication/printing costs. I also cannot guarantee that many more additional things will fit into the case. Adding more tiles and possibly cases will also affect shipping costs, especially outside of the US and Canada. If it cannot be done for international backers as well, I do not want to do it.
Off the top of my head, here are some very preliminary items I can think of:
- More tiles in the BASIC Set at no additional cost to backers- As mentioned above, the packaging may be at its limit but I am willing to consider it.
- More tile designs for additional purchase through Add-Ons- move cavern tiles, ship tiles (like a Caravel), Inn with bar, cellar, sleeping rooms and stables that could also double as a smithy, Sci-Fi deck plan tiles, Shrine, Manor House generic enough to use parts as a modern house
- Transparent Tiles add on for additional purchase as an Add-On- This could be some area of effect images printed on transparencies.
- Swag- Tshirts, custom d6 dice with a Red Kobold for the "1" with the pip as his eye, a fine point dry-erase markers that says Red Kobold Games and Blue Dungeon Tiles on them that fit in the case, totes to carry gaming stuff
- Send me your ideas!
Once again, thanks for the fun and this wild ride.
