fingerprints from greasy fingers (potato chips...?)
THERE IT IS, PROOF POSITIVE:
Stefan IS a gamer!
He knows about games and potato chips!

I rest my case; the man IS both an artist AND a gamer.

See ya!

That is great news about the water sets, Stefan, and just makes me like these sets even more! I had already ordered several River sets and was planning to order several Lake sets, but I was assuming the water would be similar to the water puddles in the cavern pieces. I was figuring I'd have to fight with my players to make sure they kept their fingers (covered with potato chips, no doubt) off of the water lest they mar the surface of the water forever. But it sounds like that will be less of a concern than I thought. Thanks for making the sets practical as well as beautiful.

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

I am also really hoping to see a waterfall included with any such set, if at all possible.

These items would be of great use in connecting multi-level (water) builds together.

I'm curious -- why the interest in big lakes?

Do people have game scenarios they are thinking of doing? I know someone mentioned ships -- is that it?

I'm curious just because I don't see myself doing much in the lake -- it'd be straightfoward obstacle, something PCs would have to navigate somehow. Once it is big enough to represent a threat, maybe obscure vision, that's enough.

Sounds like people have more specific things in mind, though.. care to share?

Well for me I'd want to make an underground harbor for my pirate ships. Arrrgh..! I think this would be a premo way to do that. I have three river sets on order. Have two and a half caverns so that is at least a start.

NOW as far as speculation on another pieces how about a Ford??? You know an place where some of the stones comes through the water for a " hazardous " crossing. I do realise that a ford of some sort could be made with the rocks and things from the Cavern and Cavernous Passage set but might be a very nice chance for a artsy piece... Not that any other are not;)

Sorry, Whitewind; I drive a Chevy and a Pontiac!
:lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Apologies to whitewind and all others; I just couldn't resist that one!

Actually, whitewind, that sounds like an incredibly GREAT idea! Now, if one accepts the general theory that a "Ford", as opposed to a "Land Bridge", is basically a very shallow place in a stream or river that can be crossed on foot without swimming, then two shallow River or Lake pieces that have dry land on one side or edge would form a Ford (probably a Windstar, but it might actually be a Mustang or a Crown Vic).
JIM!! STOP THAT!! YOU PROMISED!!
No, I didn't promise, I just apologised for doing it. I never said I'd stop.
WELL STOP IT ANYWAY. IT'S MEAN TO EVERYONE ELSE IN THE FORUM.

I DO enjoy my little conversations with myself; the scary part is that the italicized parts are delivered to me in a different voice. That means I really AM 'Mad', as in nutsy.
Oh well, who would recognize me if I were sane?

Anyway, just MY solution to a ford for underground rivers. The difficult part for us will be defining such a ford using clear resin water over opaque resin rocks, because it will require a VERY SHALLOW clear resin layer to show fording-depth water. I can't check my Cavernous River Sets yet, because they aren't in yet, so they haven't shipped yet, so I don't HAVE one yet! C'mon, End-Of-May! (That IS still the expected ship date to us, isn't it, Jeff?)

See ya! (In Indy?)

Does one of the voices have a really bad fake accent?

Course, I'm not sure if that would be GOOD news or BAD news.

HEY! You stop stealing my forum ID! You're not even supposed to be here! Wha'? NO! PUT that DOWN!! STOP! ST

Look 'ere, mate; Jim's a bit . . . indisposed for now. But don't you worrit none, 'e'll be right as rain in just a bit, now.
