    So, with the imminent creation of miniatures rules for Low Life, the question comes up, what measurement system can we use? Metric pleases 3/4 of the world (rough estimate) but Andy is American and is most familiar with Imperial/US (another assumption).

    The only reasonable answer to this that sticks (pun) to the feel of Low Life would be to do everything in Yorts (which Andy has already mentioned doing).

    Wouldn’t it be cool to have a YORT STICK as an official stretch goal (nothing fancy of course). I figured I would type this up to see if there was any support for people wanting yort sticks, and the feasibility for the creation of Yort sticks as purchasable items.

    If you like this idea, leave feedback. If you think I am full of crap, leave feedback. If you have other suggestions, leave feedback.

    (if you are looking to hire an environmentalist in the MD area, definitely leave feedback!)

    Ganesha Games Songs of… rulesets all use sticks for measurement (short, medium, long). If the ruleset Andy devises can be juggled to accomodate that, a yort stick set could be feasible.

    Sounds like Yort stick is a go (short petition).

    Next up Plush Yort to hold the stick. He will be universally loved by children and people who want it to hold their Yort stick.
    What race is Yort anyways?

    I second the motion for a Yort Stick! If we nab the mini rules (and I’m sure we will), it would add a lot to the immersion. I wonder if it’s too hard to fabricate the stick. Well, Yort did it =P

    Yort is a bodul. Page 8 of the original main book.

    Hi Guys,

    Yes indeed, there will certainly be some sort of yortstick (maybe marked on the back with both inches and metric). At the moment I’m leaning toward a laminated ruler sort of thing. As awesome as it would be to have twelve foot tall wooden planks decorated like the actual yortstick, I don’t see that as a feasible option. They would probably cost $1000 each just to have them made. However, something that’s actually usable in the game as a measuring device is definitely going to happen. I’ll get on it.

    For sure Andy, just a ruler to be used as a measure stick would be great for use with the minis.

    Ok, here’s what I’m thinking: I’ll add the Yortstick as part of Heap #3, but every Oithling who has at least 50 clams by the end of the campaign will get an extra one for free if we hit the $18,000 goal by the end of the day today (midnight, EST, June 4).

    Reply to this thread to let me know all the ways you’ve spread the word today and I shall reward you with clams.

    So, go forth, spread the word. Let’s make today a day to remember. Rally the troops and so forth.

    The Yort will be with all of us.

    Andy,
    I just sent you a plan of attack. Let me know what you think.

    I’ve been tweetin’ like a mofo about this. I also brought The Whole Hole Volume 1 and Dementalism to a convention I was at in Tulsa this past weekend and there was considerable ooh-ing and aah-ing.

    YAY, Yort Sticks! It won’t be something my kids are going to be tempted to bean each other w/ will it?

    Awesome! Pictures, by any chance? I’m hoping to populate the Oithling galleries.

    I really like your idea to make the Yortstick a laminated item, then it could double as a measuring tool and as a bookmark!

    I have officially told all my gamer friends about the kickstarter campaign and tonight I am off to the Orlando Geeks & Nerds club to spread the word even further. Hopefully there will be some new backers tonight/tomorrow as a result.

    That would be awesome! Somehow we had a negative growth so far today (a couple of people lowered their pledge, but it’s all good).

    Well I’ll just have to up my pledge to make up for it…

    I’m reeeally wanting to up mine to Heap 3.

    Yeah, I’ve been doing what I can down here as well. Mentioned it to folks in the local stores here and there, posted on the Central Arkansas Gaming something or other Facebook group, and have even said something to the two decent folks at work who’re all about my tattoos.

    Sadly, I’ve walked away from all with a bit of a resigned sigh. Folks around here are just really stuck on maybe four different games, and get all glassy-eyed when you mention something different.

    I shall persist!

    I visited a few gaming stores and spread the good word upon deaf ears. Tomorrow I try again. I would raise my pledge but honestly I have had to lower all my other pledges cause money is tight. I am not lowering this pledge.(Best I can do)

    I actually just had the bright idea to get a scenario and some pregens together, post something on the page for the store around the corner looking for a few players, and running it in-store sometime before the Kickstarter’s up.

    Or, well, I suppose I can just do A Hello to Arms. Bingo.

    Alright, fellas. You now know what you must do.

    Alright, We have plushes! Now to come up with the next interesting Low Life add on…

    How about a Mutha Oith coffee mug, maybe having it look like an erlenmeyer flask (clear glass) with a handle on it, and a green Mutha Oith logo (Green linework, nothing filled in) on it? You could even have measuring lines on the other side of the cup to tell you how many Yorts of coffee you are drinking (ranging from 1 Yort, NOT ENOUGH!, to X Yorts, TOO MUCH!)

    I figure coffee mug, cause all the Oithling pics I have seen have had the bottom half of there face covered by a coffee mug.

    What does everyone think of this idea?
