Re:New Classic Dungeon Set Coming in August! 4 Years, 6 Months ago  
I was trying to visualize the 'knob' in the foreground of the preview image as some sort of interlocking pin used to join pieces together, maybe to enable building multiple level - or perhaps even as a massive gate hinge or pivot for creating movable walls/bridges, but on closer examination it looks too uneven to work in this capacity. Looking forward to more details on this set.

HQ that is very nice.
How did you get the leaf or vine look? Is that engraved on the tile itself or painted on?


My secret. (and other pieces are much better ^^)

I think the new set is just accessories, pieces you put against the dunjeon walls to give a "look" at its base; making a cavernous exterior / interior and that's why we may need it.
I don't think this is the same thing what Lord was doing last year ...

Hopefully the *proof sets* of this new mystery set will be in the DF offices this weekend and we'll get the long awaited pictures on Monday!!!

I was thinking...

Could it be a *covers* set, that served both to conceal unexplored areas from players as well as help facilitate stacking?

If you head further back in this thread, Jeff mentioned that someone was already on the right track, so the question is who. Another pic would also be really helpful...

The suspense is killing me!

So here is what we have so far...

There is a brand new set coming in August and it is from our classic dungeon setting. It is very useful and very, very cool -- and you will want multiple sets for sure

We will post some teaser pics in the coming weeks. Hang on. The pics that I have seen made me geek out like the first time I saw the Cavern Set back in 2000.

It looks so sweet and it is very useful!

Highlander finds out that he can only die when decapitated by another immortal
Could be a clue for torture/dungeon

"Walk on the left side" is from Ladyhawke.

It is said when the priest is misdirecting the gaurds that are trying to get the heroes in his ruined CASTLE the priest was using as a shelter.


From ladyhawk:
(the priest talking about the bridge across his moat)
Imperius: Walk on the *left* side.

A hint at bridges?

Walk on the left side..... hmm. My latin is rusty but isn't left something like sinistrum which is where we get the modern sinister from?

Sinister would tie in with a tomb/catacomb set?

This new set will be an extension of our classic dungeon setting...so a completely new design like a Castle Set is not in the works for now.

And someone is very close!




Guesses up to that point:

Hmmmm, only $89 hey? This seems to hint that it will come in a *smaller* box like ABS2 and not have tons of pieces. Perhaps even only one or two molds to help keep the price down? I think a tower set/longer curved wall set would fit these parameters...

I'm leaning toward "Room of Skulls" or dungeon kind of thing.

Well if we go back to the original movie. Maybe where Conner was living? Keep style set?

If my memory is good, Jef and Stefan were talking about a set for creating castles exteriors like high walls, towers, etc. If I remember well, Crioux also told about something about that a few month ago (dwarvenforge.com/index.php/forum?func=view&catid=3&id=34101 writings remains.... :) ). So I guess it would be a castle set that will complete the classical dungeon set. And I guess we will be able to create some exteriors with this sets. I guess...

A castle esterior/tower set could also include the long-begged-for double-doors...dare we get our hopes up?

We should be getting in some proof pieces around April 21st or so. At that time we will post some nice pics. Thanks for your patience and thanks for putting up with the teasing. You all are taking very well. I won't say anymore about it until then, as I don't want to ruin the surprise for everyone.

Thanks again for being great sports!

It's not the Wicked 3 set, (still working on that) but it is very usefull and quite interesting...DM's will enjoy it, I wouldn't say it's a Set in itself, but really an add on, actually, that's probably not the right word......we are selling it at a great price to encourage multiple purchases, because i think one will like to have a few of these in order to create something vast...I actually can't beleive that it took so long to think of this, it's Jeff's idea really...it's not flashy, just useful.....Wicked 3 is flashy, it's pretty awesome, but it won't be out till Christmas i think...I'm afraid that won't be as cheap, considering all the goodies that are in it...

If only Jeff would post a small tiny picture ...........

Maybe Jeff will give us some blurry pictures of the set and we can all guess what they all are. lol

admin wrote:
Here is something Stefan said we could post...





You had to ask for "blurry", "small tiny pictures"!?
Next time ask for "Very large easy to see every detail" picture!



I say the fan who guessed closest first get the "free limited-edition" piece!

The proof sets have been delayed for a few days. I should get them in on Tuesday or so. I will get some teaser pics up ASAP when they arrive.

Thanks for your patience. I would post some incomplete pics with the few pieces I have now, but I don't want to ruin it with poor pics.

Now that I see the photo again I've noticed that the lines in the "floor" seem to diverge... may be they find each others in the center... Oh.. I wish it would be spiderweb-cave pieces... (sigh)

Re:New Classic Dungeon Set Coming in August! 4 Years, 6 Months ago  
Zz - thanks for posting the recap, it was great to see all the hints and guesses lined up like that!

I'm still thinking its some kind of *covers* set that also allows for building *upward*

I'm guessing the new set is ruins. The first Highlander film featured a battle in a ruined tower. The priest's tower in Ladyhawke was in rather poor shape (hence the advice to "walk on the left side"). As for Hagis... okay, I'm lost there.

But the pic seems to support the ruins hypothesis. We'll know more soon enough.
