  1. Actually played LotFP once - basically grimdark, Chthulu adjacent campaign, with a bit of silliness and much TPK. Was quite fun as a one off...
  2. Agree it is a solid mechanism for that, assuming you self-manage expectations around delivery (assume whatever projected delivery date the KS lists is probably 9 months earlier than the reality and you will be fine). I do find myself frustrated when the item is available for purchase mass market prior to delivery of the item to backers and when the item invariably ends up bring priced less than the KS. I am fine when the item is priced less than the KS claimed would be MSRP, but dang it frustrates me when it is available in retail for cheaper than my backer commitment (ignoring KS exclusives). And apologies for hijacking the thread into a KS backer thread ...
  3. Have thus far backed more than 65 projects - IMO Kickstarter is generally pretty safe for tabletop games, items, etc. My results have been MUCH more mixed when backing video/online games and electronics (usually smart devices) - backing from known entities has been successful; backing from startups has been a bust almost every time, either due to failure to deliver or the item being delivered and then company subsequently failing.
  4. I've had it saved as I go back and forth on backing or not. Pretty sure I am going to pull the trigger...
  5. Excellent... have not used TTS for D&D before but know people who did... it seems, esp. for the DM, that dual monitors is an absolute lifesaver
  6. Welp that didn’t take long...
  7. Hope it goes well man. Definitely update us afterwards...
  8. You should be able to solve the mic thing VERY inexpensively... definitely don’t go with built-in though IMO
  9. @jaedmc all things considered that actually sounds like a decent enough intro to Roll20 Groups. Nowhere near some of the horror stories I encountered back when I was more active there... Seems like a decent amount of us are into tabletops and RPGs... would it be weird if we eventually tried to get a R20 or TS group thing going? Anyone tried before?
  10. Let us know how it goes jae... @Pete Superfight can be glorious after enough cocktails... we have the locations and scenarios add-ons as well as numerous expansions. It’s also hilarious to hear a table full of 12 year olds play...
  11. Got all 3 for $59 + $25 Shipping ... honestly was concerned it was a scam because it seemed way too good to be true and was an eBay purchase... but they arrived today. All three unopened. I have heard of Arkham Horror but not whether it is good or not. Glad to hear it is. Hadn’t really ever heard of Last Night on Earth. Must admit I really am excited about Exodus - love the idea of a gigantic space opera style game that apparently plays in less than 3 hours!
  12. Been wanting an epic space opera style tabletop... like everyone else, strongly considered Twilight Imperium but concerned that game length would keep it from seeing the table regularly... found an almost too good to be true deal on eBay, and got Exodus: Proxima Centauri + Arkham Horror + Last Night on Earth, all NIB condition, for $80 total so I grabbed them. Questions: 1. Anyone played Exodus? How is it? 2. Hearing the expansions greatly improve the game? Anyone able to provide insight? 3. Are the other two games any good? Thinking I might just re-sell them to re-coup most or all of my expense...
  13. My copy of Batman: Gotham City Chronicles arrived today. Hear the game is fiddly and not great but wow the miniatures. And for anyone who missed it on KS, there was an insert that says Season 2 coming June 4. You should be able to get the main game plus new expansions on KS then.
  14. Demon Finn vs Vampire Lashley would have been the perfect ECW on SyFy Main Event...
  15. Haven’t played the SWN system but seems interesting for sure... if any of you guys end up running it, would be curious to hear how the campaign goes...
