Wrapping Up

February 4th - via:
Well, I'm sorry to say that I don't think we're going to make it.  I just don't see $700/day happening over the next few days.  (We've had just over $700 in new/raised pledges over the past week, unfortunately.)  Therefore a few minutes after I... (Read More)

Survey Update & More Samples

February 1st - via:
The survey is virtually unchanged since I last posted, so if you're a backer and haven't yet done the survey, see the link in Update #7. Below this post you'll see a couple of new samples.  Artist Eric Quigley treats us to two ogres!  These guys... (Read More)

More Samples: Treant & Griffin

January 29th - via:
I wanted to share a couple more samples that have arrived. First, we have a classic and very regal looking griffin.  Artist Bruno Balixa is the artist behind it.  I think all the art coming in is top-notch.  Bruno is also the artist behind the... (Read More)

Just a quick update with some more sample images.  Attached to this post are: Hellhound by Keith Curtis: I've been working with Keith for 2+ years now and I love the concept behind this guy. Earth Elemental by Ryan Sumo: Ryan delivered two versions... (Read More)

A Couple of New Sketches, Survey Update

January 25th - via:
I've commissioned artwork for several more of the creatures for the project, and sketches for these are now coming in.  The first sketch (they should be at the bottom) is a hobgoblin leader.  There will be three other hobgoblin images--two with... (Read More)

I thought you all may like to see the survey results so far.  (If you haven't backed the project yet, if you do so and then look at the previous update, you'll see the survey link.)  I'm not sure how long I'll keep the survey running, but I think... (Read More)

Stands Update, Survey Questions

January 15th - via:
As I've been pondering the project and trying to work out the financials, I think I can now safely say that we'll include 12 plastic card stands with each physical set of Monster Stand-Ins.  If that's not quite enough for you, you can pledge $3 for... (Read More)

Background Color

January 6th - via:
This isn't so much an update as it is a question: Two backers/potential backers were suggesting that we make the background color gray instead of white.  Does that seem to be a good idea?  The thinking is it would fit in better with the most common... (Read More)
