Excellent ideas. Did someone mention tapestries as either the wall or preferably an item that could be hung from the wall?
Some manacles would be pretty sweet! With removable skeleton would be sweeter :)

Have to say that walls sounds like a great idea. Maybe it could be timed with walls for some of the other sets like the sci fi and the new not so mystery set...!!

In our D&D game last two weekends, the player characters fought a bone devil, and then an ice devil. These devils filled the area with wall of ice spells throughout the battle. Fortunately one of the players had painted up some "wall of ice" pieces, but it would be great to have Dwarven Forge walls of ice to use for such battles.

I think in general I prefer room-building or furniture type accessories to doors - but that doesn't mean I don't have a long list of doors I'd love to see!

Some of the top ranking ones:

1. Double doors. This has been something I've wanted to see for some time, they'd certainly get a lot of use. Ideally, designed to be compatible with both MBS and regular dungeons.

2. Curtain. This would be FANTASTIC for the MBS -- a great way to keep the back room at the inn/tavern closed off, without having an actual door there. (makes it easier for thieves if the innkeeper has to go through a door to fetch something, leaving the till untended...)

3. Steel door. Again, would work for the dungeon and MBS sets -- a vault-type door, something more imposing than a standard door.


I'd also love to see a massive, intricate, evil door for DoE, but that strikes me as too limited to warrant being in a door set -- more something that goes in the DoE expansion set.

There are other doors that I think might be fun, but the newest fantasy door is fantastic, and I love the porticullis, and we have the secret door, the original door, the new MBS door and the new MBS secret door, plus the DoE door. In general, we have a LOT of doors... I think the three I've listed here are the only ones we really NEED...

There is one other type of "door" I would really like to see made -(if at all possible).

A small/med-sized drawbridge (with a moving/opening bridge section). I'm not thinking of a huge, outer-wall castle-like one, just one wide enough to fit a standard/(wide) passage and long/tall enough (3.5") to cover a meaningful gap/distance.

I can see so many uses for this/these. They could be used for defensive/fortification setups and as obstacles/barriers to those who haven't solved the puzzle, spoken the word or produced the proper key to move on.

Fantasy Doors and Walls set:

- Lab Door (reinforced steel door)
- Reinforced Door (like a normal one, but with more steel bands)
- Vault Door (with wheel to open)
- Double Door (like the normal ones, but double width)
- Gateway (like double door, but reinforced steel door)
- Magic Door (like the normal ones but with Runes)
- Curtain

- Wall with mirror
- Wall with Dimension Door
- Wall with lever
- Wall with 3 levers
- 2* Wall with Tapetry
- 2* Wall with menacles

Think that would give a nice selection and a good combination
to make a set. Your opinions ?

The DoE type door should be in DoE WA imho

The double doors is the single most important type of door we need for sure. There are many times when you just need to represent a large entrance into a large room or the main entrance into a castle, etc. and need something bigger than the regular doors.

Do we like double doors as a single 4" piece with two swinging doors, or as a pair of swinging doors with no jamb on one side (which could, in theory, allow us to put double doors at right angles in a corner)?

I'm all for doors, but I hope they find a way to make those doors "set agnostic" for lack of a better term. Right now, the DOE doors really only work with DOE and the fantasy door (the new one) only works with the fantasy set and so on. It would be cool if the frames were a little more generic so a given door could appear in any set.

I'm not sure I agree. Modularity is one of the two major selling points of DF (quality being the other), but making everything compatible with everything else could turn "modular" into "generic". I've mentioned making some new pieces to bridge different sets, but I still like the distinctiveness of the different lines. DoE is supposed to be very different from the standard Fantasy line, and too much "blurring" of the sets would reduce the visual impact that DoE brings.

On the other hand, a door with heavy timbers all around might fit in Medieval and Fantasy, but won't work in DoE. A door framed in dark bricks might work in Fantasy and DoE, but not Medieval. I can't think of any door that would work in both Medieval and DoE.

I'd rather see three distinctive doors, one each for Fantasy, DoE, and Medieval, than one generic door that is meant to go in all three. That may mean doors are only available in Additions sets, or we might see three different doors sets come on the market over the course of a year or so, or we could see a single Doors set that includes doors for all three lines (which might encourage people to pick up a line they don't have yet).

I see your point Jack. Maybe it's overreaching a bit to hope for something that could work for ALL sets (excluding sci-fi, natch), but having something that could do double duty in Fantasy and MBS would be great.

Interesting point is that i once build a setup of a mges dungeon and i dropped in Sci-Fi parts
for a single room (the Lab) that worked very well, cause in D&D most magi labs looks like
pulp labs from flash gordon movies.

Maybe some of the doors i mentioned could be more generic, i think of the lab door
especially.
