If you're a small RPG publisher (especially "old school" ish) and going to (or want to go to) GenCon but not planning on having a booth, talk to me at joe@inkwellideas.com.  I'm slated to have a double booth and looking to see if there are folks who have a few/several products they want to sell there.

Last Call! 24 hours left.  Bonus die per set (if you back 2+ sets unlocked); Also, second set unlocked!

Wow, we're smashing through our goals! Already everyone pledging for 2+ sets of dice is getting a bonus die & we're doing the second set of dice! (Making the one set of 5 village & city dice into two sets of 5 dice each.)Below you'll see a thumbnail of all of our city designs. They may change a bit, but that should give you a very good idea of what you're getting. You may notice a couple of the "6" designs include entrances to underground dung...

Basically, to hit our stretch goal of a second dice set, we're going to add a die or two or three to everyone's set if you back for two sets!

Please re-share if you can!  Thank you!
My thanks to everyone who has pledged and spread the word to get us past 85% of our goal.  I'm almost positive we'll hit the goal, but I'd love to see us at least get to two sets.So I've overhauled the stretch goals!!!Here is the short version: $12,000 Every backer of 2+ sets gets a bonus die per set. (All bonus dice will be extras of the set you are backing for.) $14,000 Every backer of any physical reward gets a Free Creature & Encounter Card...

DungeonMorphs 2: Cities & Villages are 75% funded!  But that means we still need help getting to 100% (Plus stretch goals for extra sets & more!)

Please consider a pledge.

Need a city/village but don't have one ready? Grab a few of these dice, roll them, line them up and you've got a random city/village!

For anyone following me personally and not +Inkwell Ideas we have samples of the new City & Village DungeonMorphs (mini-maps that are made to join with each other on cards or dice.)  https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/inkwellideas/dungeonmorphs-2-cities-and-villages-map-generator/posts/1041171

Please share this if you have an interest in the project!
Thank you backers!We've crossed 60%, so things still look good, but we've got to keep generating some news to make sure we hit our goal and have a chance to hit some free add-on & stretch goals.  So we've got another preview to share!  This sample features are by AJ Stone and includes the previously shared villages as well as new city designs.  If you look carefully at the cities, you'll notice the bottom two images are mirror images of each othe...

What do you want to see +Inkwell Ideas do next? (More cards, overhauled Coat of Arms Designer, or overhauled Hexographer?)  https://eSurv.org?s=LHHHLF_4281303a  Thanks!
Hi Folks, We're in the early stages of our next 3 possible projects. We now have them defined and scoped out to help us decide how to prioritize them. The part we're missing is how much do you want to see each happen! So please look these over and let us know which you would like to support with ...

Hi all,Yesterday saw a jump of over $2000 and we're up over $1000 already today.  So just in case, I've re-added the 3rd set reward--Ruins.  We'll add that as an option at $19,000.That may seem like a lot, but we could do about $4000 of it if all dice backers added the 3rd set.  So please do.  But what if you do and we don't make it?  I'll do a refund of that portion to you or give you a credit for something else we make.  Of course another optio...

Almost to Goal; 2nd Dice Set Stretch Goal Reset to $12,500; City Thumbnails

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/inkwellideas/dungeonmorphs-2-cities-and-villages-map-generator/posts/1060259
A bunch of big news in this update, so let me get to it: We're within a couple hundred dollars of our $10,000 goal!!! I looked over the expenses and based on a few things we're lowering the 2nd set stretch goal to $12,500.  In case you're curious, I dropped two costs I should not have included and that affected a third cost for the better!   Still thinking on the naming convention for the dice, so continue posting ideas if you've got them.  I do ...

GeekNative takes a look at our DungeonMorphs 2 Kickstarter!  (Includes a couple of not-yet seen pics.)

http://www.geeknative.com/49234/exclusive-sneak-peak-inkwell-ideas-launch-new-dungeonmorph-campaign/
The original DungeonMorph Dice Kickstarter from Inkwell Ideas raised over $20,000 from 379 backers. It funded back in 2011. Years ago. Now the clever RPG design company is back with a campaign that includes cards, PDF and font to support a city and town theme.
