Have any of you ever tried using model rail road tracks as mine cart tracks in your dungeon. You can buy them at a fairly cheep price in long lengths.

Has anyone tried to bend them to go around corners?

Setting the mood, well I like to put on soft music, turn down the lights. Maybe light some candles.
Oh, you mean setting the mood for a game? ;)

I think you can buy railroad track pieces that are bendable, but I haven't tried putting railroad tracks in dungeons before. ;)

Is it just me or are the Posted times a little bit off? It's Thur April 29, 2004 1:22 PM here in Colorado. :shock:

"Killing is wrong. And bad.
There should be a new, stronger word for killing.
Like badwrong, or badong. Yes, killing is badong.
From this moment, I will stand for the opposite of killing, gnodab."

I suppose you could make a decent "ore-car" from any open topped Train car. The PCs could ride around the Dungeon in style. Maybe have some drive by Gobin stickings..... :D

Good Idea though......

You can adjust the time in your profile, although I noted that it does not take into account DST, so set yours at GMT -6 hours.

Well anyone Who has Done any Railroading Knows that there are Many Wonderful Track Sections Available in a Variety of Scales... H.O. would Work Just Fine for Ore Car Tracks... And there Are Corner Pieces, Cross Roads, Switches and What Ever those S-Curve Sections are Called (And Likely Specialty (pieces as Well, so no Need for Bending)... I Have Never Used them for this Purpose but if Any one Does, Would Ya Tell us all how they look laid out in the Cavernous DF Stuff?

DaggerdaleDM....

I work for a lighting company so naturally I have tried lightig effects in our games. It brings a whole new dimension to gaming especially for rogue characters, let me explain.

If you just use standard incadescent lighting in your game you can get the colors you want, but the shadows are a little to soft. I use a professional halogen clamp light that is used for displays. I use 4 different colored MR16 lamps for various effects in our game (We play D&D by the way). Using the crisp halogen light produces crisp shadows showing detail in each miniature. My character's mini has a longsword raised and you can see it perfectly in his shadow. The other advantage to using a MR16 is that it is a directional flood light that throws long shadows. These shadows are perfect for D&D and the rogue in the group is beside himself with joy now he can actually see to were to hide.

We use the following colors ...

Blue - Perfect for simulating moonlight. We use a grass matt with railroad trees for outdoor areas. Looks great.

Yellow - We plan on using it for Daylight. My company was actually out of stock on yellow lamps so we will play test it Tues. If the yellow color looks weird you can use a standard no colored MR16.

Red - This one is fun to use with the cavern sets. We have used it as a volcanic area and it looks sweet. Also good for delves into the abyss.

Green- This one gets alot of use. We have used it more than once while in a dungeon overun with undead. It gives a real creepy feel to it.

I am currently looking in to other lighting uses with miniature gaming. Send me an email if you want more info.

Just post it here. Sure others could use any info.

It sounds cool to use lights. But, how do you read,write, roll dice?

Is it not kinda dark? That's funny that the thief now knows where to hide!

Actually it is not too dark. Lemme try to explain how an MR16 works.

There is a reflector that is coated several times. Depending on what coat and how many are used certain light will be allowed through the back of the reflector. In the case of colored lamps, there is a decent amount of light let through the back so the room is not too dark. Because the reflector focuses to push the colored light forward, the table table is illuminated in whatever color you choose. It is not the same as having all the lights on, but definitley not too dark to play by.
