I second the Paizo flip-mats. Also the map packs are nice:

Paizo Map Packs

You can get them through Amazon for cheap. I picked up a few at a bookstore that was going out of business. In last Saturday's game there was a combat encounter that involved a fight with a ghoul in a cornfield - well I wasn't about to make a miniature cornfield terrain piece so I grabbed my map packs and lucky me there was a corn field.

I know the flip maps are handy, but the creases drive me bonkers!

I see the map packs now are also available in pdf....maybe printing some out and gluing them down to foam core would be an option? Otherwise the individual tiles sold in the map packs are very small (5"x8")

Hey, welcome to the forum.. bit late to the discussion.. but I think the advice so far is spot on.. for cave sets mix.

Flip mats are handy, and you can combine your DF with them.
The issue of creases, is a bug bear for my too!
I wish they came rolled, rather than folded, but then it would cost more on shipping.

The thing to remember with DF, is, don't try and buy all at once. You never can, well unless you are above normal means of income etc.

The way I do it, is I try and look at what gives me maximum flexibility and what I would "like" and balance the two. It is always a slight compromise.

I have 30 plus sets and my storage space is filling up quickly, so practicality wise I am forced to consider very carefully what I buy or don't in the future.

The fun part of DF is, even with the "right" sets, DF is just an aid to your own imagination, and a way to help you see the fantasy world in which you adventure. So don't forget that. I played for years with just pen and paper and it was great. DF gave me a tool set, inwhich to help give it a bit more substance. But don't let it limit you. It can be easy at tims to let the constraints of DF, force your play into modes/styles, becoming more baord game-ish. Some people like that mind. For me i try and be as flexible with my use as i can.. and let my players know it.

And.. be warned.. DF should come with the health warning, for those with bad backs and small wallets. It is an addiction! lol..

Hope you enjoy your sets as much as I have my own.. if you do.. you will be very happy! Remember to post some photos too please! :)
