What can you make with one cavern set? 9 Years, 9 Months ago  
O.k., I finally broke down and ordered my first Dwarven Forge set (I got the rooms and passages set, and dungeon accessories and medieval furniture. After I see it in person and play around with it I'll probably buy more sets. I'm considering the cavern set, but was wondering if it was worth getting if I can only get one right now, or if I should just stick to more room and passage pieces for the moment. Can you make a small cavern with on caverns set? I think in all the pictures I've only seen all the pieces used together to make a big cavern. If you can't make smaller caverns with a single set, could it be done with two sets? Or would you need a cavern set and a cavernous passage set? I wish there was a way to see what kinds of things you could build with the various pieces before buying each set. It would help figure out what to get. Anyway, I'm looking forward to getting the set I ordered and I'll go from there.

Guest,

It Depends on What you want to Do, But I Would have to Say that It is Possible to Build a Very Small Cavern/ Cave with Just one Set... But to Start Making any Kind of Useful "Cavern Complex" I Would Say that At Least Two Cavern Sets and at Least One Cavernous Passage Set (Probably 2), are Needed... Of Course the Other Stategy is to Buy One of Each Set and then Evaluate Which Individual Pieces You Like and Order the Useful stuff separately from there... Same with the Dungeon Rooms, BIG floor Pieces and 6" Walls are (Don't forget your Corners), More Useful in my Opinion to Multiple Room and Passage kinds of Sets... Just my Less than Humble Opinion of Course... Let us Know How You Like 'Em...

I only have one Cavern and Cavernous Passage set and can say they are quite useful even with only one set each although I have some extra pieces along with it. Not that I wouldn't mind additional sets!

Brvheart,

Do You Find that You Have to do a lot of Rebuilding Areas Previously Explored? That is my Concern... I Like Having more than One Set for Situations where Say the Party Discovers a Cave or Something, (Perhaps not Planned), With a Larger Number of Pieces I Do Not Have to try to Remember what it Looked like before I Tore it apart to "Scroll" the Map...

Not too often, the players generally do their best to explore areas fully before moving on to help limit this. I mostly draw out areas in caverns as they don't fit the DF well in premade modules. I would really like more variety in cavern pieces more that anything else in new sets.

I Hear You... The Caverns are Very Kewl... And Come with a Few Nifty Details, But I Can hardly wait for The Lakes/ Rivers Set to Expand them... What Other Pieces Would you Like to See?

I think I mentioned somewhere that I would like to see some 2" pieces to compliment all the 4" ones. Allows you to have more flexibilty. Sort of like going to an ATM that only dispenses twenties. I think a natural column piece would be nice and stalagtites not just stalagmites. I definitely want the lakes and rivers.

You Mean 2" Square right? I Dunno... I Understand what you are Saying about Flexability in having a Range of Sizes, and When I First Got my Caverns I was Dubious about the Size of the Floors, but Since then I Have Really Come to Appreciate Few Floor Piece to Lay Down to Get a Useful Fighting/ Encounter Area... But When It Comes to the ATM, If It Dispensed Quarters I'd Be Happy... If I Had any Quarters for them to Dispense that is...<Grin>...

Yes, 2" square. OK I am a lazy typer! With my arthritis I type with as few words possible. That and ok, I am a lousy one, too!

...<Grin>.... I Hear Ya... My Two Sadly Overworked Typing Digits Go a Bit Slower than my Overactive Mind, So I Often Find myself trying to Keep up with my thought Process... Sometimes I Catch my Lame and Simple Mistakes in Time... Sometimes Not... But You Know I was Not Making Fun of You Right? Anyway, I Think DF does a resonable Job of Juggling Potentially Useful stuff with Function... I Like Using the 4"x4" Cavern Floors for Outdoor Roads too...

Didn't even consider it:) Hmm, never thought about using them for roads, but would definitely need more than 3 to make much of a road.

I Don't Use them From Table Edge to Table Edge, But Rather Should an Encounter Occur on a Road Etc. I'll Use the "Same" Stretch of Road... (With 2 Sets I have a Little more to work with I Guess)... They are a Nice Quick Fix... Even Better would Be the Rubber Road Sections from MBA of Course but I have not gotten around to Buying any of those as yet...
