Contest & Today's Stretch Goal Unlock! PLUS News for Resin Printers!
10 months ago – Sun, Mar 21, 2021 at 04:49:55 AM

GUESSING CONTEST!

10 days to go! How far do you think we're going to get? Let’s do a contest! Write your guess in the comments below IN THIS UPDATE -one guess per person! The winner (who is closest to guess what we end up funding for) will receive their choice of my personal favorite Resin (Siraya Tech Blu) or my favorite Filament (Shengtian Copper)! If there’s a tie, we’ll have to do a coin toss (or dice roll) to pick the winner. (If you can, please convert your guess into USD since that's what I'll be seeing on my end.) To the spoils, goes the victor!  

It's a little early (I have to get back to my family plans for tonight) so today's unlock is.... 

Lastly, some good news Resin fans! I now can officially say that I will be supporting Elegoo Saturn, Anycubic MonoX and similar-sized resin printers (192 x 120 x 200mm) at FULL SCALE! (WOO HOOO!) I have sliced the Mayan Temple into two parts vertically for Saturn and MonoX printers and the print tests have been successful, however, you may need to use rubber bands or a vice to glue the two pieces together effectively. Feel free to give it a go: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:4751295


Have a great weekend everyone!

$100K - BAM! Decorative Towers are unlocked!!!
10 months ago – Fri, Mar 19, 2021 at 10:23:24 PM

 WE DID IT! $100k! WHOOO HOOO!

You've unlocked Decorative Towers! What are they? They're an almost identical version of the dice tower but without the holes for dice and with a closed door. Decorative Towers make excellent buildings for your adventurers to discover throughout their travels.  

 I went ahead and released the Preview list of Stretch Goals up to $200k. We have 13 days left, how far do you think we're going go? (Seriously, should we do a contest to see who's closest?)

At the current count, we will be donating 10+ games to our local Children's Hospital. Thanks Mythos Games! Since all backers helped this happen, I thought it would be fair if you had a say in what games we donate. The list is coming soon - stay tuned to cast your vote!

Other Updates (Same as the last update, but I wanted to share it again to make sure everyone had a chance to see them)

I added larger concept art on https://www.fatesend.net/for-backers (scroll past FAQs). 

Add-ons: I added two "Add-ons" for unique situations a few of you have asked about:

"FatesEnd1Files-For MERCHANTS+PERSONALIZE"

This Add-on is for:

1) MERCHANTS who wish to add FatesEnd1 files only (license to sell FE1 prints is not included)

2) PERSONALIZE ONE backers who wish to add FatesEnd1 files only (license to sell FE1 prints is not included)

"ADD ONE Personalized Object"

This Add-on is for: any backers who wish to add one Personalized Object to their pledge. Since their original pledge includes access to the files, the cost of this Add-on will cover the time involved with customizing the object.

To include Add-ons, hit the Manage Your Pledge button, then select the add-ons you wish to include.

And lastly, due to feedback, we have an additional stretch goal at $160k for a FatesEnd Discord channel! $160k is the magic number that gives me enough budget to hire an assistant to help with communications and admin (and I'll be training her to 3D model as well!) When I started this whole venture last year, I had no idea how much time communications and admin would require and I kept working late nights and weekends on a weekly basis and I would very much like to lock my work time to 40hrs/week instead of the 50-60hrs/week I've been working for the last year. She can help me with that big time! Fingers crossed that we get there! :-)

The Plague Doctor + Cthulhu preview
10 months ago – Wed, Mar 10, 2021 at 08:11:49 PM

Another Stretch Goal UNLOCKED! Great job everyone! We’ve unlocked 11 Stretch Goals so far! I have 40 total stretch goals planned - so keep sharing the word! Let’s see how far we can get down that list! :-)


Today’s unlock: The Plague Doctor:
A Physician by trade the poor he heals, With frogs and leeches and potions he spills, Protected by lavender and robes and masks, Your fate he holds - one of his vital tasks.

Concept art: Many of you have requested larger concept art. I’ve uploaded the larger versions here: https://www.fatesend.net/for-backers (Below FAQs) *IMPORTANT! Merchants - please do not list any FatesEnd2 objects for sale until you receive your Merchant IDs (after April 15th). I'll send you all new concept art that you may use at that time.


Medium Resin Printers:

I have been getting many request to split towers for smaller/medium resin printers. I own both the Saturn and the MonoX and they really are fantastic printers! I am currently exploring the option of cutting all files for this campaign medium resin printers. I do need to put more thought and print testing into this before I can guarantee all files can be printed by medium resin printers (Support-free, as always). Please stay tuned for my findings and decision. Small printers such and the Photon and the Mars are just too small to cut down. The Mayan temple would need to be cut into 13 parts to fit. 

5 more Dual License pledges until we unlock Extended Licenses from the 1st campaign!
From the Campaign: If we get more than 20 Dual-License ($550)backers in this campaign, we will extend ALL MERCHANT LICENCE durations from the FIRST campaign to match the end date of FatesEnd 2 licenses! YAY!

I’ve been adding unlocked Stretch Goals to the Production Schedule! Be sure to bookmark this link for release dates: https://www.fatesend.net/production-schedule


Lastly, I’ve finished modeling Cthulhu and the first print test went really well! (60% scale). I’ll be printing him at full scale this week and sharing photos/videos when he’s done, till then, here's a turn table video for you:

Printed in Prusa Mystic Brown, dry brushed with craft gold acrylic paint.

Unlocks + updates!
11 months ago – Sun, Mar 07, 2021 at 09:53:02 PM

You have unlocked the Heaven & Hell tower! GREAT JOB EVERYONE!!! Our #FatesEnd2 hashtag posts went through the roof the last few days! WOO HOO! YOU GUYS DID IT!

You’ve also unlocked another GM Screen: The Sci-fi City! (Or will be soon, but I’ll be out and about today so I thought I’d unlock it early.) 


How will GM Screens work:

My plan (for now, I need to work on a prototype to work it all out before I can guarantee that this is my plan 100%) is to include two versions of the GM screens:

1) The first version would be a completely 3D printed version with shelving, and potentially hooks that attach to the shelves (they have to be support free, so I must prototype this first.) I may include a tongue/groove system so the shelves just slide through a groove through the width of the screen section (for easy printing)

2) The second version would contain the towers only with a channel running through the tall side of the pillars/towers where a screen can slide through between two towers using the grooves. I may come up with a groove system that works with the 3D printed screens as well as traditional screens, but I must prototype this first before I can guarantee that this will be the end solution.

There will be two dice towers on either end of the screen: one rolls the dice in, one rolls the dice out toward players. Some backers have said that they wanted one of the center towers to be the one that rolls the dice out, but I need to see how everything scales together. In that case, the center towers need to be tall enough to get enough momentum on the dice so it completes its roll, and thick enough to have a channel for the 20mm D20 to roll through. I’ll provide more details later in the campaign in an update when I have a solid plan in place for the GM screen. :-)


Here is the second video of me 3D modeling Cthulhu (Video 2): https://youtu.be/GW2Y9ckGSbw

Facebook Groups:

A number of new backers have requested access to the FatesEnd Facebook groups. I’m so sorry, we can’t add new backers to the Facebook groups until this campaign funds (usually 2 weeks after the campaign ends, around April 15th.) We will be sending out Facebook links to backers then.

Merchants: Please don’t sell/list any FatesEnd2 items (from this campaign) until you receive your FatesEnd2 ID. I’ll be sending them out after this campaign funds (usually 2 weeks after the campaign ends, around April 15th.)

Small format resin printers: This is a bummer, but I won’t be cutting up all of the files to work on small format resin printers like the Photon or the Mars. Some makers will cut up 8” tall minis (or what I call maxis) however, minis are solid in the center, whereas dice towers have an internal channel for the dice to roll through. Depending on the designs, some walls won't be thick enough to support tongue/groove systems in 2.5"x4.5” chunks throughout the entire tower. I'm sorry, I won't be cutting these up to print at 100% for the Photon, Mars or other tiny resin printers. Their print areas are just toooooo small. :-(

Lastly - OH MY GOSH!!!! GUYS! #makersmuse featured the Mayan Temple in his video today!!!!! I WATCH HIS STUFF ALL THE TIME! Thank you Makers Muse! (Timestamp: 10:55) https://youtu.be/3YZyKPs81a0&t=10m55s
