Kickstarter: Monster Tokens by Devin Night

I was really excited by the Reaper Miniatures Kickstarter.

To be honest, I still am excited by it.

I backed it for a while.  Then I added up just how much I’ve backed and found I had over $500 backing for projects closing in the next month.  I dropped it (and one or two more) because that’s just crazy.

This is especially true since I don’t truly have a use for them any time soon.  I haven’t been part of a table game in quite a while, and even then we usually found d4s to be eminently serviceable monsters (especially since they trivially have ‘status markings’ built into them — 1 is unhurt, 2 is hurt, 3 is ‘suffering condition’, 4 is dead).

However, I do play in a couple of Hangout games and want to start my own — preferably soon, but more honestly “after some other things are done”.  We use Tabletop Forge.

Monster Tokens by Devin Night makes for a much cheaper and remarkably more serviceable and useful alternative to the Reaper Miniatures.  It starts off with overhead tokens for 150 different monsters (list shown below), then adds more as stretch goals are met.  The first one is at $8,000 and the project is currently a little over $7,700.

So far the first list is covered, the first stretch list seems likely.  The second stretch list is a little more interesting to me, but I suspect the third list might be one of the more useful ones overall.

Project closes August 30 and is currently 7,735/6,000 funded. Fully-funded (all planned stretch goals, basically all monsters in the Revised System Reference Document) at $12,000.

    Anyone who uses MapTool should be familiar with the name Devin Night, as he created some great overhead token images for use in it.
