You can do that with a regular 4X4 Cavern Floor and the free standing walls of the river set :-)

Greetings,

That's part of the problem. The cavern rivers and wall set is the only one that has these - since those got pulled for quality issues (water) anyone who needs opposing walls to make 4x4 cavern tunnels is just out of luck. And this is indefinite since we do not know when the issue will be resolved with those sets.

Yet another reason why I am opposed to components being "set only". It is the worst sales model for the consumer short of randomization (never doing that again). If some basic pieces, such as cavern walls, 6' corridors and long wall pieces, stairs, etc were made available then this wouldn't be as much of an issue.


I have been running rpg games for close to 30 years. I run my game one every other week or x2 a month. Just recently I had my guys traveling through the underdark and encountered the issue of not having 4x4 cavern passages to simulate an underground thoroughfare/trade road. In a few weeks I won't need those pieces as much, or at least for a very long time. I would have dropped a few hundred in cash just for the loose pieces but that isn't even an option here. I have bought several sets from DF directly and many more on ebay due to the lack of sets -basic sets (Octagonal room -for the diagonal walls) being available here. After spending thousands of dollars I have to say I am a bit disappointed. I understand the need to create scarcity to sell special sets (DOE, ROT, etc) you do need to do that just to maintain a sense of urgency, staying current, etc. I am just having a hard time reconciling the DF sales model that doesn't support individual pieces or even stocking sets that contain the most fundamental pieces needed to give DMs the best options for setup.

I know this is a rant, the DF tools are closer to artwork than actual game aids. I just don't like the idea that some very basic designs - which are very doable if the basic stuff was available -are prohibited because "X piece is in Y set", or "basic piece isn't being made anymore (diagonal walls)" so you still need to improvise after buying 15 sets, etc. Just frustrating. I hate buying the stuff on ebay, I would rather pay directly to DF, even if the price was higher but half the time they don't even stock some of their older basic pieces so that isn't even an option.

Again, sorry for the rant

I'm with Auxmaulous here... at least half of my basic DF collection comes from individual pieces that some online shops had long ago. I only have a room set, a deluxe room set, and not even one single room and passage set. But I have passages and room pieces enough to build a quite large dungeon.

Pieces like portcullis, columns, stairs, shouldn't come (if possible) only through buying lots of wicked additions sets. I thank all the gods that I arrived to this hobby in time to get lots of these in individual packs. Now that several new environments have seen the light, I miss many of their pieces in individual packs to pick some of each.

If DF can someday support this kind of market model, in my humble opinion I think you guys should. Just 2 cents.
