Kickstarters for Dungeon Masters: Dungeons and Lasers!

As one of the lucky ones to get a sample spru of the product, which included a small portion of a hallway/walls and the wolf animal companion, Geralt, I feel very confident that this is a Kickstarter more Dungeon Masters should be backing! Included below is my general review of the project, as well as my own findings when working with the product I received.

Kickstarter Project: Dungeons and Lasers: Plastic Tabletop Scenery
Creator: Archon Studio
End Date: August 27, 2019 (08/27/2019)
Kicktraq Progress: At time of posting, Kicktraq is estimating a whopping $722,018 (or %1805 of the original goal).
Funding Needed: None; this project is already way over-funded, and it’s very clear it’s going to stay that way, unlocking many more stretch goals to come!

The Dungeons and Lasers project title is at the top of this image, while below, painted miniatures (including Geralt the Wolf), the terrain pieces, and some dice are ready to be played on the tabletop.

Product: 3D tabletop role playing game terrain (walls, floors, doors, stairs, etc.), decorative bits, and animal companion minis.
Quality: Having received a sample of the product itself, I can assure you that the product quality is very high! The plastic is hard, durable, and chunky! It’s got a lovely heft to it, and I don’t feel like I’m going to break it putting it together or moving it about on the tabletop with some enthusiasm. Easy enough to put together, versatile, reusable, and reconfigurable!
Tagline: “One tabletop terrain to play all the games.”
Estimated Delivery: June of 2020, and Archon Studio has had a very good track record of meeting their fulfillment goals on their other projects in the past.

Product: Emissary the RPG is a 280-300 page, full color, hardback book that details the setting and unique ruleset. You can snag a preview of Emissary here, which includes many of the Gods and factions of those worlds.
Quality: High quality; though the creator is a new name among RPGs, they have poured many of their own resources into developing the product itself, enough so that the artwork is of a professional quality – possibly on par with popular titles such as Dungeons and Dragons.
Tagline: None.
Estimated Delivery: August 2016
