Litko Aerosystems brings you tools to help you run your game!
If you're like me, you have a hard time remembering which of your PCs are invisible at any given moment. Embarrassing to say the least! I also forget who is carrying the torch. Well, the folks at Litko Aerosystems have come up with solutions for those problems and a few others.
The Invisible Character Marker Set includes 10 see-through, laser-cut character outlines to replace your mini when you're invisible. With ten different figures in the set, including halfing, gnome, dwarf, demon-kin, dragon-kin, rogue, archer, fighter, cleric and wizard, there's sure to be suitable ones for the characters on the table.
The Torch Bearer Marker Set consists of 3 torch-shaped markers to attach to your minis to show which characters are lighting the way.
For flying characters, check out the Flying Figure Stands. Each 60mm-tall stand has a platform made for 1-inch round bases. The bottom of the stand can be used as a die tray to show the current elevation level of the flying figure, or as a place for another figure to stand.
4E players might especially want to check out the 4E Condition Tokens—Game Master's Set. Each stackable, color-coded 1-inch token allows you to see at a glance all the combatant conditions in play. Of course, players of other games can make use of these colored markers just as easily.
That's awesome that y'all carry these now. After seeing Sean's posts about their stuff a while back, I nabbed me some gear from Litko. I got the dead guy tokens, a set of torch bearers, and of course the invisible guys. The thing I didn't get was glue. All mine at the house is dried up, and I keep forgetting to buy some.
These little guys are cool! I remember when Sean first got them and then recently we've actually had many opportunities to use them. I think they'll be a huge hit. They're even more entertaining when you use dry erase markers to color them--right Sean? What was it they called Sinbad? Urine Frost? (Because he used yellow to color in his). :o) Sorry babe, I couldn't resist!!! "HaH HaH HaH!"
I just used a little dot of standard superglue to glue mine together, I didn't bother to get their special glue (which may just be a specific kind of cyanoacrylate glue).
I haven't looked at their glue specifically, but I've used acrylic cement before, and it's a *far* better choice for acrylics than superglue. It's not actually an adhesive, but a solvent that literally melts the adjoining pieces and bonds them together. As long as you're careful, joins are pretty much invisible, and the bond is stronger than the surrounding acrylic itself. It's not very useful for other materials, though.
I'm made of acrylic, I don't like using stuff that can melt me!!!
I used my E-6000 glue for gluing the bases the only downside is that it takes a little while to dry whereas the super glue is an instant bond so that we don't have to physically hold it with our hands while it dries. I like the super glue method too! :o)
