Dwarven Forge Megalomania! 8 Years, 7 Months ago  
I am taking over the world...

And covering it with Dwarven Forge Caverns. :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D

Yes, I just won another Cavern Set on Ebay. So that's two Cavern Sets and a Cavernous Passages set, plus about a couple of dozen or so individual cavern/passage pieces. Just the thing to go with the Cavernous Rivers and Walls sets when they come out.

Of course, SWMBO doesn't know about this (yet). I can only carry on with my megalomania if she doesn't kill me first. :mad: But, fortunately, she games with us and loves using figures - and DF makes her enjoyment of the figures so much greater - so I'm sure she'll only kill me a little bit.

Sorry, just had to tell someone - I know you guys will understand. ;) I return you now to your usual programming.

And some of us are Married AND Children, and we both get away clean, because we ARE the kids, and we LOVE DF!

And that's pretty much the story of The Mad Yank and his beautiful Lady.

See ya!

Well, I'm married (obviously, give the first message) and I have kids...

Who both think (and are probably right) that they're more mature than me. :D

You don't get give up gaming because you've got old - you get old because you've given up gaming.

Phil,

So what does it mean when you don't even discover gaming until you're 45?

Isn't there some sort of tropical frog which starts out as a frog and 'grows up' to be a tadpole - i.e. metamorphosing the 'wrong' way? Perhaps you're like one of those? :)

Ribbit, ribbit!

At this rate, I'm doomed to a third childhood, soon!

Well, it could be worse. I could be doomed to a second adulthood!

Peter Pan strikes again! Whee!

See ya!

The set arrived today...

Whilst the missus is away in Innsbruck at a conference, and my daughter is staying with my parents - leaving just me and my lad (fellow DF addict and co-conspirator...) So I ain't dead yet. :D

Anyway, opened up the second box, alongside the first - this is my first duplicate set (and quite possibly my last duplicate - I'm seriously short of storage space and DF takes up too much space I don't have) - WOW! What a lot of pieces!

I'd thought I needed more bits simply to make bigger caverns, and yes, I can make bigger caverns, but they're starting to look rather rectangular and regular, in a slightly irregular sort of way. Anyone got any tips for using 2 x Cavern Sets to make big caverns which don't look regular. Anyone got any photos or sketches of setups using more than one Cavern Set?

Cheers,
Phil

Hmm, good point about the Caverns... I just ordered my second Cavern set today (along with a second DOE, two Betas, and a Floors!!) and so I'd like to see what some of you all've done... needless to say, I've VERY EXCITED about all the goodies that are soon going to be coming in the mail!! 8-)

I do not think the layout I just posted over at
www.dwarvenforge.com/dwarvenforums/viewtopic.php?pid=12125#p12125
is exactly just two caverns in use, but I hope it helps with the isssues under discussion over here.
One of these days I will set the layout back up in all it glories with with all of its accessories (when all of the loans of gaming items get returned) and I will take pics and post them.
Hope the pic helps folks.

This evening, with one eye on the Olympic hockey, I laid out my piece of black cloth on the floor in front of the TV, got out my two Cavern Sets, emptied the boxes of all but the bow-ties and set to work - I decided to learn to use the sets together by making several layouts - the only rule being that I *had* to use all the pieces in each set up, and none from any other sets. If I can get the photo upload thing to work, I'll upload a few happy snaps of my better efforts.
