Rejecting Coins

One of the suggestions for the Kick Starter was to offer upgrades of metal tokens These awesome prototypes in Steel Electroplated Nickel Silver look fantastic but they are very heavy  adding 1.75 Kg to the case. They do come with the bonus of being able to stick to a Magnetic sheet.  I’m not sure GM’s will cope with having that much weight added to the case. Its a real pity because they look and feel fantastic.

D&D Wall

A large fridge magnet type plastic sheet with these coins would work great if you ever need a D&D wall where you could leave your tokens and campaign setup. Tell me in the comments if you think there is a market for such a product.

Encounter Log Pad

These are to be added to the GMLight flavour packs. As a simple pad with double sided tear off sheets. The idea is to give a busy GM a way of recording a random encounter. Each tear off  sheet will have random example encounter maps both for on the road and underground for the GM to use if appropriate or ignore. Front Page adds

  • Date
  • Character record list
  • HP tracker/record for the encounter
  • Table of encounter colour * roll D10

Back page

  • Notes
  • Treasure given
    1. Coins
    2. Random Minor Magic items you can tick to add
    3. Random Minor Material weapons you can tick to add
    4. Random Gems you can tick to add
    5. Random Jewellery you can tick to add
    6. Possible treasure documents you can tick to add
    7. Minor Magic items you can tick to add


These are to add value to the flavour Packs for the Kick Starter any comments on how to improve them will be considered

GMLight expansion packs and addons for the Kick starter

We are preparing to run a Kick starter campaign for GMLight Flavour packs: Add ons to GMLight  specific to the various gaming systems. The surveys we’ve conduct have shown that D&D 5e is the most popular FRPG played today. D&D 5e is published under the open game license OGL which  means that legal requirements for publishing works which make use of its intellectual property is contained and defined in this license. Other FRPGs that fall under the OGL are D&D3.5, D&D4e,Pathfinder 2e, Pathfinder and Basic Fantasy RPG.  The intention is to run Kick Starters for generating flavour packs for each of these FRPGs. D&D4e does not appear to have a strong following and so will be omitted from the proposed kick starter list.



  • 90 Double Sided monster cards (up to 180 Monsters) Each with a drawing of the monster below its textual description
  • DM Screen for tailored to the FRPG
  • Sheet of peel-able Condition Stickers for Conditions in the RPG
  • Set of Initiative clippons to run a round

If you have any good ideas how we can add more value please answer in the comments

What size House Battery

So I need an idea of the size of House Battery to get.  To Store the excess solar energy from our solar panels.


Well the CUMonitor plus the tel-tec web calculator lets you model the problem so you can try out different house battery capacities at the different times of the year. see example logging data here.

If you are interested in joining the CUMonitor user group fill out the form here. Note you will have to purchase a CUMonitor box to log your house it you want to take part as a member

The Battery size is entered at the top of the page and the first (light green) bar chart is of the Power remaining in the Battery and the second is the Power from the solar panels. The Assumption is made that the 24 hr period starts with the Battery full.

Some CU Meters have an LED that illuminates when the Meter is exporting the to Grid CUMonitor can optionally monitor this or use an internally calculated flow,
