3D Printable Dice Towers and More!

Latest Updates from Our Project:

Marooned Pirate Ship, GM Screen start and Process for Requests:
12 months ago – Tue, Jul 06, 2021 at 01:32:05 AM

Surprise Update! Happy 4th to backers in the US! Hope you had a great holiday and didn’t set anything overly expensive on fire.

BANKS: For those of you are struggling with the bank cap, here is an easy and cheap solution to keep the caps in place (filmed with one hand, sorry for awkwardness).   

Bank Scaling:  I usually print banks at 80%. When printed at 100%, the coin insert hole is scaled to work with larger coins such as the US Kennedy half dollar which is no longer in circulation, but when printed at 80% US quarters work just fine.

Fix-it Requests: Please send fix-it requests to FatesEndRequests@gmail.com
I’m getting a bit overwhelmed by requests and messages around the clock, to help, we have a new system in place for feedback and requests.

We will prioritize requests as follows:

1) Dice getting stuck: If you have a D20mm dice (or smaller) that gets stuck one out of fifteen rolls (or more) on a tower printed at 100%, this would be considered our top priority.

2) Support-free printing issues (high incline, overhangs, etc.)

3) Glaring visual issues

4) Other issues

If you have a print that you believe needs to be revisited, please send photos/screenshots of the issue as a fix-it request (FatesEndRequests@gmail.com). Also, because there are so many of you, I do get a lot of PMs over the weekends and at night. I really need to stop responding off-work hours to work-related messages. My 5 year old keeps yelling "No Phone!" when I'm putting him to bed. I work 50 hrs/week (plus nights sometimes) - I really need to focus on my family when I'm with them.

I’ll be doing one round of fixes after the GM Screen and again after the last tower is released.


"Hey Kim, can you.... (insert request here)"
 While I do very much appreciate that so many backers are invested in this project, I'm getting a constant barrage of requests outside of what has been promised from this campaign. All backers really should take a moment to review the Production Schedule as a reminder to what has been promised in this campaign: https://www.fatesend.net/production-schedule 

I don't like saying no all the time, but I really can’t take on new requests right now - I need to continue focusing on what I’ve promised to deliver for FE2.


UPGRADES:

Upgrades have been automatically locked down though Backerkit (sorry, I didn't know they did this.) However, you can still upgrade through PayPal. Please contact me if you want to upgrade and I'll send you instructions. FatesEndTowers@gmail.com


Our first GM Screen: I’ve begun modeling and print testing our first GM Screen Tower. The towers will have grooves to support existing screens (some common homemade solutions) as well as 3d printable screens. The included screens will have a middle shelf for 32mm Minis, however, I won’t be including clips or other items. (There’s a lot of solutions for clips that can be found on MyMinFactory.) Just a reminder that I’ve allocated two weeks for GM screens.  Please see the Production schedule for release date.

Here are some sneak peak photos of the first tower (there will be four per GM Screen, two of which will be dice towers, one on each end - one rolling dice in to the GM, one rolling dice out.) Please note that the printable screen panels will be textured. You can find the original concept art here: https://www.fatesend.net/   

Screens will slide between two towers

And today’s Release: Marooned Pirate Tower. Due to the unique nature of this tower, Decorative and Bank versions will be a single ship instead of two broken parts like the dice tower.   

Starfinder & Dragon Hoard
about 1 year ago – Thu, Jul 01, 2021 at 12:43:13 PM

Hi everyone! 

Please don't forget - you can always access links to your files here: https://fatesend.backerkit.com/

And always keep an eye on the Production Schedule. This is where I make notes for fixes and release dates. https://www.fatesend.net/production-schedule

We've got only two core items left after today, then it's on to Stretch Goals! Woo!

Here is the Starfinder (with built in tray)

And... The Dragon Hoard!

I was sure to include a version with the mouth open, but it's not recommended for FDM printers. The Teeth really need tiny supports to print correctly. 

The Gift of Play + OctoTank + Haunted House
about 1 year ago – Mon, Jun 14, 2021 at 11:31:18 PM

Giving The Gift of Play! Not only did you guys help us fund this campaign (and unlock a ton of stretch goals), you helped us give the Gift of Play to some wonderful kids! With Mythos Games help, we donated 18 table top games to Primary Children’s Hospital! It was such an amazing experience to help out these kids who are fighting for their lives. So THANK YOU everyone!! This was a feat we could not have done without you guys! The representative from the hospital was super grateful and excited for these kids. - Avalee  

Kim, Avalee and Scott (from Mythos Games)

 “These games… make a huge difference. Especially right now with Covid, our Playrooms have been shut down. These games really help,  the kids can play with us or their families, and that really helps them to heal, so thank you!” -Primary Children’s Representative. 

This truly was a touching experience. These games will help countless kids for years and years to come. From here on out, we plan on continuing to donate tabletop games to those in need in future Kickstarter Campaigns! Thank you for your support! If you know any other game developers who wish to donate a copy of their game(s), please send them our way, (or if you know any groups who could use the Gift of Play, let us know.) We’re planning on giving to the local Women's Shelter through a portion of the proceeds from the next campaign. -Kim

Important Merchant Reminders + two new TOWERS!
about 1 year ago – Tue, Jun 01, 2021 at 11:51:33 AM

Hi guys, hope all is well! Summer has finally arrived here, so I can continue spending all my time inside wishing I was outside. Weeeeee adulthood!

REMINDERS:

Production Schedule: Just a reminder that Backers will not receive email notifications when files are updated. Please keep an eye on the Production Schedule for file fixes and file release dates. It's not ideal, but I tried sending custom email file updates in the last campaign and almost half of them bounced back. 

Merchants - this past week was a really stressful one regarding varied issues from this group. Please review these reminders to help reduce these issues in the future:

Merchant Images: You are welcome to use the renders we’ve supplied for your listings, however, use of any other FatesEnd images (such as photos) are strictly prohibited. Above all - never ever (EVER EVER EVER EVER) use photos belonging to other Merchants. That’s very much not ok and creates a ton of stress and time on my side. (Seriously, please, I have SO much to do already, these types of issues are burning me out.)

NEW MERCHANTS: If you did not receive your Merchant License, please send me an email (with your backer email address) and I’ll issue you one: FatesEndTowers@gmail.com (***Backerkit does not send me any sort of notification when new backers purchase a Merchant License, so I need backers to contact me for their licenses.)

If you find a FatesEnd Listing that doesn’t include the Merchant License, please send me an email: FatesEndTowers@gmail.com. Please do not call them out publicly or contact them - I will handle it.

We did discover a website where they have stolen a few of your listings and Merchant License images. (Did I say last week stressed me out?!) We’re trying to force them to take the listings down. If any of you know someone from the Better Business Bureau or a similar group, please help us. If you want a link to the website, please send me an email and I’ll send it to you. I don’t want to promote them here.

OK, the fun stuff! Please check your Google Drive(s) for these files: (you can always access them at: https://fatesend.backerkit.com)

Alien Obelisk & Mimic Boxes

Hi guys! Hope all is well! Good news! All of the FE1 ornaments have been uploaded (*and I rescaled the tower versions that were at their full size.) Please scale the Dice Jail ornaments as you wish. I left them a little large compared to the Towers.

Alien Obelisk (please download latest version - the Baffles were missing in the previous version when fixing some overhang issues.)  

Identical Mimic Boxes: The files are up. Please view the video in the same Google Drive folder for assembly (I'm using an older version, but it’s pretty much the same deal for assembly.) *You may need to glue the top mimic part to the lid to keep it secured.
