Tips for using Hellscape effectively? 1 Year, 4 Months ago  
I recently picked up several sets of the limited edition sets that were in stock (and backed the KS in a large way for classic dungeons).

I'm having an easy time playing with DoE. But the Hellscape ones are making things a bit harder for me -- I guess they are also more similar to Caverns which I have no experience with. it seems like its only easy to make single large rooms -- no real ability to make separate linked caverns.

I currently have 1 HS1, and two HS2. Though I have ordered two more HS1 since I think that will help a little. Even with the movable walls I feel like there is way more floor than walls. Any tips to help use this more effectively? Or should I view HS as primarily epic open battles (linked with standard caverns when they get back in stock)

There are many great photos covering these sets. Other like you have multiple sets s well as some of the extra Add on pieces.

Here is a video review I made that does show one short 'corridor' section that you may find useful.

Thanks, that helps a little. I think when my other sets arrive I'll be able to use that inspiration to play a bit more.

Using the "straight" walls opposite each other is really the only way to create passages between chambers using just HellScape pieces.

With some HellScape-to-Cavern transition pieces, you can create very short passages between HS chambers, or you can add Cavernous Passages for longer tunnels. Aesthetic quality of watery bits between fiery bits is up to you.

Ahh, so you're saying use two cavern/HS transitions back to back(flipped) as one option. I like it (now I need to get more... probably the most common phrase uttered here).

I really liked the twisty corridor dandare illustrated, but again it illustrates the "I need more" affliction. Using 1-2 sets to make cooridors like that and then another 2-3 sets for rooms at various points....
