Redav's Projects

Postby Redav » Thursday April 9th, 2015 1:48am

After playing this again and finding that our friends and family have enjoyed it as well, I have started thinking about all sorts of things so I figured I might as well build a thread outlining what I'm attempting. I usually bite more off than I can chew, get distracted and wander off and forget what I was intensely keen on (case in point, I'd started this thread draft over 12 months ago :lol:). So, I'm hoping this keeps me focused, centralises links to my key threads and provides me with somewhere I can stick my musings, wins, losses and outcomes.

Oh, this thread will probably make it sound grander than it really will be :lol:

Gaming Equipment

Postby Redav » Thursday April 9th, 2015 1:53am

Task List;

    ü Print missing tiles - the Ye Olde Inn PDF's were printed onto Avery A4 label sheets and stuck them to thick card which turned out really well, basically as good as the original tiles
    • Print remaining quest books
    Have better quality cards printed - the cards were printed on 250 GSM card which is approximately what the original cards weigh in at but I'm sure this can be improved
    Print card holder boxes - this would be a lot nicer than the snap lock bags I presently use :)
    • Create alternate gaming board or two

Alternate Gaming Board;

I'd like to use an alternate gaming board but I'm undecided which way to go.

    • Print large gaming board - having access to a large format plotter is pretty handy at times...
    • Modular (magnetic?) board - I do like the idea of the layout of the map slowly being revealed
    Hirst Arts - I love the idea of this but this will take some time, effort and space which we don't presently have
