A day later, I can see the humour in that view!

I actually cringed when I saw those pics. It reminds me of the feeling of seeing a broken bone come through the skin on a tosh.0 video.

I feel scarred! Every gamer's nightmare!

Take a deep breath, buy some good glue and very carefully fix what you can. Use green stuff or milliput (putty) to fill in any small holes and then re paint. It'll be like repairing a masterpiece!

This has just reinforced my house rule "The DF does NOT travel!"

I used super glue to repair the chips and breaks frem the big trade I made w a person in colorado. That box had MUCH less protection and the peices were not individually wrapped. There were only about 9 small breaks - mostly a set of carverns. Super glue fixed everything. I tried to find a break/crack today to show my daughter and could not find them.

I will prob go w 2 part epoxy fot the DoE walls as they are 1/2 the thickness of a regular DF wall. The extra strenght may be required.

OUCH! I'll voice my vote for never getting rid of the styrofoam boxes too! I do not store my DF in the original boxes, but I still have all the original boxes up in my attic!

What did the postal service say in regards the insurance?

The sender contacted US post and started a claim.

I contacted canada post and did the same.

I will be contacted next week by can post staff according to the person on the phone.

Everyone has been very apologetic.

The can post person indicated that having pictures was a good move.

We shall see.

Ouch...yes, the den of Evil line has thinner walls so it should be protected extra careful in shipping...looks like someone dropped or threw the box...there is a reason we spend a lot of money on custom Styrofoam molding charges and packaging, it works....but i also agree that if you are careful you can glue the pieces back...we cast everything in dark gray (when appropriate) so cracks and chips will be disguised...i think if you have all the pieces there you can get it back to great shape with a little patience...

really sorry!

i would offer to replace a piece that might be too far gone but unfortunately there are no more left...

good luck

Generally the post office will let you keep the pieces even after you receive the refund. I havent seen too many den of evil room and passage sets recently but they used to go for around 250ish on ebay. With the sudden influx of new
DF fans and the popularity of the series I think think the going rate will be higher right now.

I hate to buy or sell Dwarven forge that isnt in the original box for just these reasons. If I were going to ship them I would double box them with a
couple of inches of padding inbetween the boxes. Those sets are so heavy that
if they are tossed all that energy will finds its way to the pieces and break them. Sorry dude... that sucks.


Take the refund, glue the pieces and wait for a cleaner set.

Thanks Stefan, everyone.

I think it will all work out. These are small tragidies, very disappointing to be sure, but not the end of existence. Who knows, if I do get some compensation I may be able to find another set on ebay or here.

The Den of Evil peices are truly beautiful and, damaged or not, I am glad I have 2 of each in my house.

Each time I examine them I see new details and intricacies. I shall defend these rooms with all my cunning and guile from the evil theiving adventurers who want to foil my plans and steal my gold.

There's an auction now for a DOE Room & Passage set and after one day on Ebay it was already $330+.
