:D

That's great. Well, I can see why people want really big lakes. For me, it's perfect -- if I want more water pieces, I'll be HAPPY to have more of everything else, too.

Heck, with all this talk and excitement, I'm wondering about picking up another Cavern set, too!

MY reason for wanting a fairly large lake is one scenario I did for my group that involved falling down a sewer into a large lake containing a blind, white water dragon. They then had to maneuver past a certain cryptic seal set in the floor of the dungeon on the other side of the lake shore . . .
No, I can't tell you the rest of it...it's too horrible to think about!

Anyway, Me Want Lotta Water!!

See ya!

My thoughts on extra pieces I'm considering ordering from the river set (also looking forward to the lake set):

A few straight river pieces, a couple extra curved river pieces, at least one more dead end. Once the lake set is out I'd likely order a couple extra pieces of full water and other things from the lake set as well.

Dunno if there'll be any "open stock" pieces for Rivers, Lakes, or any others, any time soon, but if there are . . .

ME TOO! ME TOO!!

See ya!

If they ever do a Wicked River addition I'd love to see rapids pieces.

we couldn't get any individual pieces booked yet for the Lake Set container but here's a thought...any open water pieces you add to a set up will probably require also 2 extra land pieces to enclose it in a lake (one for each side) that's my first guess, but of course I have no idea how people will use these pieces...I am a traditionalist and like to use them very streamlined and logically, but I am sure many people will break from that and use these pieces in all sorts of other ways (see IO...)

One use I can see for extra water pieces is building one edge of a lake that's too big to practically fit on the table. There still needs to be enough water for the half-illithid aboleths to emerge from, but that corner of the setup will not be bounded by walls. Let me see if I can illustrate:

Code:

WWS
WSL
SLL


W = All Water
S = Shore
L = Land

Hopefully that makes sense. Anyway, it's just a thought.

For truly massive lake set ups, I will be using my wargaming board that I have painted sea blue and painted several layers of marine varnish on (used for Man O'War many many moons ago). The lake tiles will make excellent small and cavern bound 'internal' lake areas and I will be using shore tiles and sprinkled loose sand to deliniate (is that a word?) between the cavern floor and the 'Unlit Sea'.

I have an idea to host an underground cavern/naval warfare game of Warhammer between Dwarves and Goblins, as well as some good D&D underground/water sessions. If I can find the time this summer, I intend to make some 28mm boats and rafts.

Can't wait!!

I think I will avoid using loose sand with the lake or river pieces, as I'd be too concerned that sand grains will get stuck on the "water" resign.

62 sets and counting. In addition, a boatload of individual pieces or sets of pieces.

You won't need to worry about anything getting stuck in the "water" we are using a method where this won't be a problem, the water is much like clear plastic in quality, it can be wiped down and nothing will stick in it (unless the thing itself is sticky), it will collect fingerprints from greasy fingers (potato chips...?) but it can be easily cleaned and wiped down with a cloth.

I think I will avoid using loose sand with the lake or river pieces, as I'd be too concerned that sand grains will get stuck on the "water" resign.
