What is Constructo - Dungeons Builder?

Constructo it’s a VTT (Virtual TableTop), with which you can create maps, customize characters/npcs/monsters, and much more.

How does it work?

Thanks to Constructo, the DM can create a custom map in minutes, or access maps shared online by other DMs. This can be done both before a session and during. The focal point of the project is the speed and simplicity of creation. In fact, there is also a tool to generate random rooms in a few seconds. Once this is done, the DM obviously has control over everything, characters, monsters, props, etc., while the players have access only to the resources assigned to them (for example, they can only move their own character).

Hero Forge support? What does that mean?

With the official support of Hero Forge, any player who links their HF account will be able to use their miniatures within Constructo. And importing them means a few clicks.

Dynamic lights? Darkvision? Fog of war?

They will all be there! Thanks to the dynamic lights you will be able to see only what your torch and / or magic will allow you to see, thus creating fantastic shaded areas where you can hide and make surprise attacks. Even without any light, characters with darkvision will be able to see in the dark, thanks to a particular camera effect. The Fog of War will allow you to see only the rooms actually explored, so as not to spoil what’s behind a door or on those stairs. When your characters move away from an already explored room, they will continue to see it, but shaded and will not be able to see any monsters / npcs placed by the master inside it. Dynamic lights, Darkvision, Fog of war will have customizable settings.

Does Constructo support the game rules?

Constructo is meant to be agnostic to gaming systems. We provide the tools and a generic system usable by various TTRPGs, players are free to play the game they like best!

So, no ruleset? (SPOILER: yes, ruleset are present)

Constructo core is agnostic, but we are integrating complete rule system on top of it, starting with D&D 5ed!

There’ll be two subscription modes: free and paid (monthly - around 10$). Through the free version it will be possible to play without any problem, we do not want to force the players or the master to pay. By paying a little bit you will get access to extra features.

Do all players need to purchase a license?

No! We don’t want to limit the number of players who can participate in a campaign because of money! Any player who joins the DM game will enjoy the “premium” features unlocked by his subscription (of course the whole group can divide the amount).

What are the differences compared to other systems, like Talespire? What are Constructo's strengths?

We admire the work done by TaleSpire, but there are some things that we think can be improved. I’ll give some examples:

  • PC only: If you want to play with your friends at the table, do you need to have 4/5 clunky computers on the table? Today’s phones / tablets are very powerful devices and can very well be used for this project. What about VR/AR headsets? I don’t know if you’ve ever tried one, but for instance, the Oculus Quest 2 is a beautiful tool, which is capable of conveying an impressive level of immersion. We want to offer players a way to play their favourite game alone in their home, as well as togetherat the table!

  • Miniatures: we want to offer an easy way to make your perfect character model and/or use your fantastic miniatures

  • Character sheets: Character sheets, combat system, automations? We think that are must-have features to provide to the players and to the master.

  • Terrain editor: Constructo even in its alpha stage allows you to edit the terrain to your liking

  • Price: Last but not least, Constructo will be free, and will provide a usable game system at no cost! Besides, you can pay a very small amount to access features that make the product even better. There is absolutely no need to spend money to have an optimal gaming experience

Why isn't Dungeon Alchemist a competitor?

Dungeon Alchemist is not a direct competitor, ‘cause it exports 2D maps for other VTTs

Will there be sci-fi assets?

We will come out with medieval assets, but we plan to provide players with different environments to meet every need

Last updated: September 13, 2022 06:20

Will there be a Marketplace?

We know that not everyone has the time to customize everything, so we are working on an internal marketplace where you can access maps and miniatures created by other users.

Last updated: September 13, 2022 06:20

I have many digital 3D models, can I use them inside of Constructo?

Yes! Not only can you easily import you’re models with just a few click, but you also have the ability to share and sell them within the marketplace

Can I play locally or online?

  • Want to play a session at the table with your friends? You can!
  • Do you prefer to join a session from home with your friends around the globe? Worry no more! With Constructo it’s easy to do!
Last updated: September 13, 2022 06:20

Can I customize my character?

With our internal characters editor, you can create a character that fits your needs. There will be dozens of pre-made assets, that combined together will generate endless possibilities!

BackerKit FAQ

What is BackerKit?

BackerKit is a service that crowdfunded project creators use to keep track of hundreds to tens of thousands of backers—from shipping details, pledge levels, preferences and quantities, whether they have paid or had their card declined, special notes, and everything in between!

The BackerKit software and support team is independent from the campaign’s project team—BackerKit does not handle the actual reward shipping. For more information about the preparation or delivery status of your rewards, please check the project's updates page.

How does BackerKit work?

After the campaign ends, the project creator will send you an email with a unique link to your survey. You can check out a walkthrough of the process here.

I never received my invitation. How do I complete the survey?

The most common reasons for not receiving a survey email is that you may be checking an email inbox different from the email address you used to sign up with Kickstarter, Indiegogo or Tilt Pro account, or it may be caught in your spam filter.

Confirm that the email address you are searching matches the email address tied to your Kickstarter, Indiegogo, or Tilt Pro account. If that doesn’t work, then try checking your spam, junk or promotions folders. You can also search for "backerkit” in your inbox.

To resend the survey to yourself, visit the project page and input the email address associated with your Kickstarter, Indiegogo or Tilt Pro account.

How do I update my shipping address?

BackerKit allows you to update your shipping address until the shipping addresses are locked by the project creator. To update your address, go back to your BackerKit survey by inputting your email here.

When will my order be shipped, charged or locked?

That is handled directly by the project creator. BackerKit functions independently of the project itself, so we do not have control of their physical shipping timeline. If you want to check on the project’s status, we recommend reading over the project's updates page.

I completed the survey, but haven't received my rewards yet. When will they arrive?

As BackerKit does not actually handle any rewards or shipping, the best way to stay updated on the shipping timeline would be to check out the project's updates page.
