I think warbands could work well, it would fit the encounter style.

Sorry elves. Autocorrect changed your race to the number 11. ☹️

Forgive me if this has been discussed already, but couldn't they combine a bunch of these ideas into a "Warbands" theme, or "Warcamps" and sell an eleven tree fort, a dwarven rock fort, an orcish warcamp, a hobgoblin pallisade, a night elf/evil fey "dark forest" theme forest camp, a lizard man/serpentfolk swamp camp, a human bandit forest lair, etc. etc. with multiuse interchangeable elements.

We need lots and lots more ruins. Of all types. I can guarantee that ruined houses, ruined castles, and ruined temples will get 30x more (dis)play time for me than any house in a tree.
Agreed we do not have nearly enough ruins - especially for Castles and none for KSV temples etc.

But I don't believe Ruins and Treehouses (Elven outpost I think you will find the term is now) are mutually exclusive and if they were I'd be banging the drum for more Ruins and then I'd bang it some more!

Dungeon ruins could form part of a Dwarven Hold encounter and Castle/CBS ruins forming part of an Urban encounter or maybe just add-ons as Castle ruins may not fit any new encounters, given they would need to have a castle - don't see DF doing another one ;)

but they are so cute and definitely outdoors....
Look them in the eyes and say that out loud.

Ewoks are done! there is no need to give those poor excuses of tailless, rag wearing vermin any more media coverage than they have already had.

Well, they probably got supplemented by burrows and the forgotten temple. I imagine DF always has too many ideas to fit in one KS waiting in the wings. I know I am the same when planning out a new RPG campaign. Too many ideas, and which will I focus on this time?

Even though I didn't really like the Ewoks, I was screwing up the order of their appearance in the fliks. I liked the original 3 then the prequels happened and wished they hadn't. Oops ;)

I was so surprised we did not get more in KS5.

I really liked the ruined column we saw at the start of the year and thought it was odd not to include it, but DF must have wanted a kept up dungeon vibe in the end.

Speaking of 'trouble'.
I'm more of a Tribble [S.T.] fan (old-dude syndrome), Ewoks [S.W.] were a bit annoying in my opinion.
Never liked that stretch of three films, sure glad the series is no longer in "his" hands. ;)
I had no problem with the Ewoks in the film as a symbol of how the lowest of the lows can help the great heroes of the story save the day, sorta a mouse helping the lion with a thorn in his paw kind of thing. But any Ewok stuff outside of the third film was annoying crap to me back then.
