Hi, A quick ? for the DF veterans here. How have you successfully mixed the Sci-Fi sets with the fantasy sets for use in a AD&D game. Also some pointers or pictures on how to build the multi level dungeons as I cant seem to figure out how to do it on my own.

I have one set all each of the fantasy side of DF products.

Thanks

That means you have a Narrow set, yes Maxwell?
Those pieces, while useful for their designed purpose and such, are incredibly useful in being the architectural base for multi-story set-ups.
They fit within the normal space a Master Maze piece uses, but they have a lot more sticking up where you need it for multi-level designs and are more stable than pillars.
Plus, since they are of a more compact nature, they can easily take up the weights placed on them.

This is the main reason most of us are trying to get more Narrow sets from who knows where and/or to get Dwarven Forge to do an order of the set.

Personally, I use mine far more for this architectural support use than I do for their intended purpose.
Then again, I am a mostly science fiction gamer, but these fantasy narrow pieces do a good job of supporting the SF pieces in an out-of-sight manner as well.

Thanks RabidFox for that excellent advise on using the Narrow Passage pieces for stacking. Using them for that purpose will enable me to construct vastly superior dungeons from now on.

It's sage advise like that, which separates the truly experienced/veteran builders from the rest of us.

Thank you for the compliment Wereweasel.
I am not sure if I am really worthy of it.
I am no where in the skill level as folks like invincibleoverlord or Tom (the French one) are.
Their skills are vastly superior to mine.
I am still learning from their set-ups.
Mine is only techinical skill; the two of them and others like them can take that and add a hole load of creativity and imagination.
They then come up with gorgeous layouts like they do.

You know Jeff, I just had a fun thought.
Do you know of a store who could loan you their poster rack for a little while or that you could take off with for cons?
What you could do is make poster boards with pics of IO's and Tom's layouts, along with anyone else's pics you have really liked and mount them all in the rack for the cons you go to.
The rack takes up only a little space, fits on a table and shows a whole hoard of really cool Dwarven Forge set-ups ranging across nearly every gaming genre there is.
That could really inspire some serious Master Maze sales Jeff.

Foxman; IO and French Tom are artists; YOU are the technician who can adapt their designs to PRACTICAL structures that all of us can do.

Fox, THAT is an INSPIRED idea!
See, I TOLD you, you adapt ideas to practical uses!
But N-o-o-o, You didn't believe ME. YOU think you don't have any creativity.

HEY EVERYONE, Let's tell RabidFox he's got a lot of GOOD ideas! This one of the Poster notebook rack is INSPIRED!

RF, ya done good on this one.

See ya!
