This may be old news (I am late to these boards compaired to some of you) but you mispelled "SMOKE" as "SMOLE" on the fire fountain from the Fantasy Floor set. Unless I am mistaken the runes are lower case greek and should read, Fire, Ash, Ember and Smoke.

P.S. I am impressed that you used actual runes that actually spell something. I am going to use the mispelled word as a spell trigger for a hidden chamber elsewhere in the dungeon.

You suspect correctly -- this has been remarked upon. I noticed it, too, and I seem to recall Stefan talking about why he went with the incorrect spelling. In any case, that's a pretty fantastic item, ain't it?

Now that I'm all into the DoE, I'd love something that like for the DoE. It could be essentially the same thing, with the appropriate floor design, or it could be something with even more vile implications....

This is why I think things like fountains might ought to be done as accessories instead of pieces -- that is, not based on a tile at all, but made to sit on a tile. Then it can go anywhere.

A lava fountain for DoE would be neat, but as far as "vile" goes, I'd just as soon forego a fountain of blood. Now, a fountain of wailing spirits might be very interesting, but it might be a difficult sculpt/cast.

I can't take credit for the Lava Fountain...it was Jeff's inspiration/design...I do know though, that he loves puzzles and riddles (the True Dungeon event are full of them at Gen Con) and most likely he wanted one of the words to be wrong in order to cause some sort of havoc or to symbolize how something went terribly wrong, or as the missing key or perhaps something that the party has been sent to fix? You will have to ask Jeff, as I have no idea what went on in his twisted devious mind when coming up with these runes...he,he,he...
