Re: What did you order !!!!

I'm still deciding what else I want to add to my Dungeon of Doom (Painted, Magnetized, Black SoS).

So far:

Last Few Pieces of Doom
Ancient Pillars (Red)
6x 12"x12" Terrain Trays (2 lava, 4 water)

I would *love* to add the Emperor's Mega set in marble, and get more elevation pieces.

However, I'm backing the Table of Ultimate Gaming kickstarter -- after all, I need to upgrade my table space to support the DoD -- and that's cut into my budget.

I decided to add a set of double doors.

The KS prices are the best they will ever be. So if you have to drop your pledge, it's not worth getting the older stuff, IMO.
Good point :)

Oh man, I would love to, but I don't think I could justify it without paring back on my KS pledge somewhat. Tough call!

Unless I specifically state that my information is directly from Valoria, my comments are just my own opinions.

Otto, while you're waiting for this stuff to ship by April, why not go to the online DF store sometime in the near future and make an order for some classic KS1 dungeon tiles?

Everything painted, no magnets. I'm a new collector. Please feel free to comment :)

My initial pledge was for the following:
1x Zaltar's Gameroom
1x Deadly Corners
1x Eldritch Pools

Considering adding the following while the pledge manager is open:
1x Gauntlet
1x Wall of Force
1x Curved Dais
1x Double Doors
1x Ledges

The Gauntlet was a tossup with Arcane Alcove. I wanted to get a few passage pieces to play with. I was also interested in the wall of force, manacles, and spike trap. Ultimately I think I've decided to go the more expensive route and get the gauntlet, which will give me some flame traps, spear wall and nets as an added bonus and pick up the wall of force separately.

I can see myself using the dais pieces a lot. I passed over the double doors initially since my pledge already included a handful, but I felt like the three unique doors it includes would be an easy way to change the flavour of a dungeon or signal a boss encounter.

The ledges are a bit of a last minute addition to give me the option of negative space builds. Not 100% sold yet. I'm a big fan of the ossuary arches and golem walls, but alas my budget is not.
Definitely add the Double Doors. With the option of removing the doors, adding the different doors, using city builder walls in them, those are an amazingly flexible add on. And the price?! Crazy cheap.
If your budget allows, you may want to look at a set of the straight dais too, and dais platforms.

My pledge is to augment my existing sets. I have plenty of dungeon sets already, both resin and dwarvenite. I think this will give me some nice variety to add around the table. I have to say, I am very eager to get my elevation platforms and the round large walls!

Nice pledge. I would say definitely go for double doors - great value there. Negative space builds can be really interesting and totally change up the feel of the pieces - I say go for it! :)

The Double Doors are, hands down, the best deal in the whole KS.

Otto, while you're waiting for this stuff to ship by April, why not go to the online DF store sometime in the near future and make an order for some classic KS1 dungeon tiles? As least you'll have a chance to play around with the basic wall/floor/corner/door pieces, and you know they will integrate perfectly with KS5 when you receive it.
