Does this mean you'll be cutting retailers/distributors out of your supply chain in the future and only selling direct?

Yep. With the current state of the market, we needed to change our distribution...or raise prices significantly.

:shock:
Oh my gosh!

I just realized that the DoE doors look just like the wall sections when closed! That is sheer genius. I am awestruck.


Yeah, I think this is one of the coolest parts of the design.

I'm already planning layouts that will include the "once the doors close, you don't know where the doors are anymore" type of rooms.

The other thing i noticed about the doors is they seem to be the same stlye as the Sci-fi doors, ie with the same slide design and slotted edges... I had visions if it's true of mixing and matching the sci-fi in places with those to make creepy doors in the middle of a complex or (if we ever get them ;) ) the force field doors etc just to have wierd effects... but eh i have a Sci-Fi bent to things

:cry:

I just took a closer look at the DOE pictures. The doors seem to lack the brick design that's behind the "claws" (teeth? tentacles?) on the walls. So a closed door will look almost, but not quite like the walls.



Oh, well. The set is ultra cool anyway.

I still think I'm going to go ahead and require a spot check for players to recognize a door from a wall. :twisted:

(Can't wait to have them stumbling around lost inside the Den of Evil! )

It might be neat to put several doors and treat them as a wall but with the doors all open. Kinda like a partition.

That's a really good idea. I can picture an Evil Throne Room having partitions like that around the edges.

Also, I'd love to see those horned figures on the sides of the doors released as stand alone pillars. And maybe some sort of Altar of Evil that matches this set. Or a Well of Evil for the floor...Or a Fountain of Evil for the wall... Or... Or...

There's so many things to hope for if DF ever produces a "wicked additions" set for the Den of Evil (hint... hint...)(hope... hope...)

:mrgreen:




Or Evil Stairs! Definitely need Evil Stairs! Or...

I agree. I think an octagonal room works best (8 even sides & no obvious directional reference) for that type of deception, but you need 4 diagonal walls and the initial DoE set comes with only 2. I might also try a very long and narrow room, with the "door" being one of the many panels on the long side. And maybe there are two doors there, one of them leading to something unpleasant...

An earlier post from DF indicated a DoE "wicked additions" set in the works, but I would advocate some simple deluxe/octagonal room sets as well. I never seem to have enough room pieces (and I have 14+ sets), whereas I've always had plenty of passages. If the line sells well (and, geez, why wouldn't it? It's gorgeous!), you could offer curved walls+passages, advanced builder, and trap sets.

Honestly, the sheer potential for stunning future DoE sets is very exciting. I've almost (but not quite!) stopped dreaming about the elusive cavernous lakes and rivers set...

You put that thought right out of your head, mister! Don't go giving them any ideas! ;)

The DoE stuff is pretty amazing, though. I'm really happy that it seems to be doing so well.

But - hey, DF guys! -- the cavernous lake and river set would do even better, I'm convinced.....

I wonder if the portcullis inserts fit inside the DoE doorframe.

does it fit in the Sci fi, if it does it would guess yes as possibly a standard door type... you know untill i just looked i thought people had made those portcullis, didn't realize they came in a set, shows you how much i look at the fantasy sets... :twisted:
