More Crowdfunding: The First Poll

Lots of great information on FB today, and I want more from my friends on LJ. Here's a little poll about my potential crowdfunding project.

Or projects.

As a few are likely going to say..... When do we start throwing $$$ at you for the crowdfunding project? :)

What's this about custom dice? I play the PnP hero system that uses "standard" six sided dice so finding some custom ones would be cool.

When you roll them they play music and sing verses about the bad move you just critically fumbled.

This could be amusing, but it's have to be a set and they'd have to sync up - 3 through 18 - and you'd have to have a way of setting it in reverse. Three ones for a damage roll suck. Three ones on a skill check in GURPS, though.. Honestly, would probably be better done as an iPhone/Android app.

I was just thinking about an app for this. You could choose any dice to roll, preset it with crit hits and fumbles numbers, then before you tap the "Roll" button you could input what you need to succeed. This way the app knows which songs to play.

Or the GM could have "Tom's App O' Gaming Fun!" on his iPad then tap whatever result he wants and it plays a random suitable snippet. Wish I knew a bit of programming, this would be fun and easy to make.

One thing I'd like to suggest for your Kickstarter project: Post updates!

I don't know why, but it seems most filkers launch a kickstarter project then never talk to their backers! Ever! Just look at Insane Ian's project, zero comments, zero updates, zero feedback, and he wonders why he almost didn't make it.

So when you do launch a project on any of the crowdfunding sites, please talk to us backers. We get lonely.

If you're looking for ideas and such, you might also check with Prof. and Prof.a Foglio. That last Kickstarter they had went over the moon..

Here's an idea for stretch goals: Singing Telegrams. For every $100 over the goal you create a short song message from one famous character to another, like Loki to Lex Luthor, Gandolf to Mary Poppins, Arthur Dent to the Doctor's companions, Sherlock Holmes to the Benedict Cumberbatch. Load those into a dice and roll it ;-)
