Several of our Dwarven Forge obsessed (um.. I meant dedicated) backers/customers have begun THOUGHT EXPERIMENTS for different pledge levels for the New KSer backer with and without previous DF Terrain...

This discussion could be helpful for someone who knew what price point they were targeting and seeing what several DF Veterans would have picked for themselves if that was their entry point right this minute.

Take your time to look around and/or leave a comment on the particular threads... They love to help and talk. Also stop by the comments, as there are many there who would be able to get you started. We love fresh blood, um I mean... new friends.


THOUGHT EXPERIMENTS

Budget $200-325

QUESTIONS:

Q: I am new to DF. What should I buy if I am just starting out with this whole 3D terrain?

A: First think about your table and the space you want to work with. Below are two very good options that would make fantastic starting points into the use of 3D terrain in your RPG events.

OPTION 1 -
Dungeon Level I plus a Starter Dungeon add-on and maybe a few specialty add-ons would also be a great starting place for a newcomer on a budget.

OPTION 2 -
Dungeon Level II is great for first backers. A reasonable amount of pieces, most are high utility. You won't be planning your whole dungeon in advance, but you could easily advance room-by-room and always have 2-3 connected small encounter areas for adequate tabletop visualization. And at a price that won't break the bank (unpainted), with a sprinkling of stretch goals.

Q: Any advice on what set or rooms to get if you started from scratch right now?

A: A lot depends on your budget. Dungeon Levels I or II are both a great mix of fun pieces and bread & butter building pieces. And I'd supplement them with either a starter dungeon set, or some amount of the walls, floors, or corners packs.

Q: Will be you recording updated videos for painting KS5? The PDFs are nice, but Stefan’s videos where he described and demonstrated were SUPER Helpful.

A: I think it's high time for new dungeon painting videos.
