M. Tom -

I'M not the BIGGEST fan of DF, only because I'm rather pragmatic about things, in some ways.
I AM a big fan, because I appreciate the detail, the artwork, the pure talent that Stefan puts into each piece he creates.
I AM a big fan, because I appreciate the customer support Jeff TRIES to devote to the customers. He knows there are problems with overseas distribution, especially in the EU, regarding taxes and customs. I know that comment is going to draw a hit from SOMEONE over there, Tom, and I apologize in advance for it, but "da trut is da trut"; live with it or change it; that's what ballot boxes and voting machines are for.
I AM a big fan, because Jeff and Stefan LISTEN to what we have to say, and when a majority of us say something, if there's any way DF can implement it without giving away the company, they do it.

So that's me in a nutshell.

See ya!

I don't know if I'm the biggest fan. On a good day I weigh 284.5, so I'm a smaller fan than I was four months ago by about 18 pounds. :P

Seriously, though, I know that I've been a fan of Master Maze since its inception ten years ago. I first saw it in my local game store, and it was love at first sight. It's been a torrid affair these ten years.

This year the fires of romance have burned brightly, with the Cavernous River & Wall Set, the Cavernous Lake Set, and the new Medieval Building Set coming out. Ain't love grand?

:D

Congratulations, Kradlo, on slimming down a bit. I'm hovering around 275 and may be going up. I need to do whatever you're doing and slim down. :)

62 sets and counting. In addition, a boatload of individual pieces or sets of pieces.

I'm always going to be a big defender of DF because I think the modularity has been exceptionally well executed. Stefan has combined the flexibility of the best systems with the sculpting and detail of the best fixed products out there. I honestly don't see the appeal of fixed structures at all anymore, because I know they just accumulate and take up space and they can't be re-invented and turned into entirely new things whenever you want.

That's ultimately what hurt HA for me -- sure, the molds themselves are incredibly flexible. But with them, you can really only make either fixed structures, which takes me back to square one, or some kind of DF-approximation. And if I'm going to have a DF-like product, I'd just as soon have DF itself.

So in the end, DF ends up being the only game in town for me. I like terrain enough to get a little of just about everything, and I really do see the appeal of a lot of it. But there's nothign else that I'm a completist about, nothing else that gets me anxiously anticipating the latest release, nothing else that brings me back time and time again.

The flexibility/modular combo is a great thing.

I was in the "not very flexible" camp a few years ago. I had only the basic Room and Passage set. Now I have more and learned (from these forums no less) what can actually be done with these things.

The "coolness" factor I get from my players and friends. Lot's of us have been gaming since the early 90's and a few of us since the early 80's... and yet a couple of us from the late 70's. DF is a dream realized for many of us since childhood - since the days of lounging about around a small dining room table during a "slumber party" and playing DnD all night long eating Dorritos and washing it down with mountain Dew.

After playing a game with a set-up, I kinda' have the same feeling as I did after watching Sin City - amazement in the realization of one media being brought to life in another media form.

I'm a big fan of DF because it is modular, yet 3-D and beautiful, and can be used by those like me who lack the time to build and paint things for myself. I used to run my D&D games on a battlemat, with cardboard chits representing the characters and monsters and with the dungeon walls drawn on the battlemat with erasable marker. Thanks to Dwarven Forge and to Wizards of the Coast plastic prepainted minis, I now can recreate almost any classic D&D dungeon adventure, or a close approximation, in 3-D.

I’m not the biggest fan of DF. I bought the Room & Passage Set a few months back and it seems the quality is not what I anticipated it to be. The paint is pealing off on two out of the three doors that came with the set. And one of the doors I received doesn’t seem to want to stay closed. Not sure if I will purchase another set.

I'm not the biggest DF fan, because Gencon Friday night when everyone was meeting at the True Dungeons Tavern, I was getting my family situated at our hotel and getting the kids to bed. I also only have one lake set...

However, hats off to DF and all the true fans out there.

Well, look at my picture in the cool pix section. I'm down to about 260, and I can pretty much eat whatever I want and not gain weight at this point.

Quite honestly I have never seen a set do that.
Did you buy it new?
If no, well get the evil bugger that sold you the set to recompense you; that Room & Passage set was evidently very abused.
If yes that it is a new set, then contact Jeff directly at the Dwarven Forge WEB page and arrange for a switch of the set.
Master Maze is a very high quality gaming terrain and Dwarven Forge stands behind its product.
They will make it right for you Gumee.

BTW, where in Utah are you?
Occasionally, I have to go through Hill in the course of my duties.
If I have the time, maybe we could play something.
Do you RPG or wargame?

Dear Gumee,

I'd be happy to replace those metal doors with the newer ones from the Fantasy Starter Set. Just send them in for replacement.
Personally, I like the metal ones because of their versatility EVEN If the paint tends to chip around the hinges...but I understand If you prefer the newer version.

Just copy this post in your package.

Sincerely,
Stefan
