Thanks DF for an excellent year! 8 Years, 9 Months ago  
I just wanted to summarize and reflect upon some of the accomplishments DF has had over the past year.

1) An awesome 50% off sale on SF MM
2) The first Den of Evil set
3) The start of an ambitious re-stocking schedule
4) Direct international sales
5) And the designing of some new sets/items (scheduled for release in 2006)

I would also like to say thank you for all of your continuing efforts in developing and producing this amazing product.

May there be many more years to come...

I too, would like to thank Stefan and Jeff for a pretty decent 2005 year AND
for their efforts in trying to improve our Master Maze experience.
To be honest, there was stuff I wanted to see during 2005 that did not surface, but it just was not feasible to be released.

I look forward with much anticipation to 2006 with its new releases and
the "ambitious re-stocking schedule" that Wereweasel spoke of.
It will be fabulous to see a lot fewer "Out of Stock" labels on the Dwarven Forge WEB page store.

Thank you Dwarven Forge!

Thank you very much guys!

The credit should go to Jeff Martin. He has done a great job and deserves much praise. He came aboard at a time when I was about to self destruct and righted the ship. Bravo Jeff!

2006 will be a great year!

I add myself to all my fellows have said, and I will add thank you stefan, jeff, moderator for show yourselves in this forum. I think this is invaluable. That behaviour makes this forum a gamer's family with same/similar interests that can communicate to say what everyone expects from the line, and finally those products that become real are those which the gamers want. I think we have the feeling of being listened.

Thank you, and I wish a greater next year for all!!!

I first discovered DF in, I think, 2001 or 2002, and it had been available for about a year then (don't remember for sure; old age syndrome creeping up on me). I thought it was fantastic! I've been a pretty steady customer since.
Stefan was working in NYC area then, and I remember on-line conversations then; he seemed to be doing the 'one-armed paperhanger in a hurricane' bit even then. One of the later bits from him that I remember was that he was considering closing up because he couldn't keep up with new products AND corporate management at the same time.
I feared the worst!
Then I found an entry about this Jeff Martin guy in ILLINOIS, of all places! It really threw me, until I saw how things turned around. Jeff was tearing HIS hair out as a manager, while Stefan was gleefully sculpting NEW SETS!!!
Sorry about the hair loss, Jeff, but I'm glad you sacrificed it for the arts. :P
Anyway, since Jeff took over day-to-day operations, DF has done a 180-degree turnaround, and become a FORCE MAJURE in the gaming world. And it's a well-deserved status.
Jeff, keep the oars in the water.
Stefan, keep the beautiful artworks coming (and they ARE art; never let anyone say otherwise!)

And to all of you, and your families, have a wonderful Holiday Season, and see ya in 2006!

Thanks everyone for the nice words about DF and us. We just had our big year-end meeting, and I have to say the coming year looks to be a good one. So long as the pre-orders for or upcoming sets are at a fairly descent level, we should be able to release 5 sets in 2006 -- Sci-Fi Beta, Cavernous Rivers, Cavernous Lakes, ??????, and Den of Evil (Wicked Additions). Personally, I can't wait to do some gaming with all of these sets!

Lastly, while you guys have been thanking us, we should also be thanking our great customers who have supported us over the years. Your willingness to pre-order the DoE, your great feedback, your awesome contributions on the Forum, and your enthusiasm to tell others about DF make us a very lucky company. Thank you for your part in this good turnaround in 2005...you were a big part of it!

Happy Holidays,

Jeff

Getting the sets mentioned by Admin in 2006 would be fabulous and would fill my little collector's heart with joy (even if they are limited edition, though I'd rather they weren't)! Please keep giving us great product. This year of 2005 marked completion of my "basic" DF collection. I can now do almost any dungeon in any D&D module I own with DF product and that feels GREAT! Now I look forward to collecting new and interesting additions like the Cavernous River and Lake sets and Wicked Additions for Den of Evil, etc. So Dwarven Forge is putting out exactly the new types of products I'm interested in collecting now. Thanks, Stefan and Jeff.
