POLL: Seriously, what do we want to see next? 8 Years, 2 Months ago  
I tried doing an informal poll elsewhere, but it didn't really quite come off the way I intended. People said they wanted a bunch of stuff, but it never came together to give a clear picture that might be useful for DF.

So this time, I'm not going to list a bunch of options. I hope this thread will serve to give Stefan and Jeff a good indication of where our priorities for DF are, and what we really, really, really want to see happen in 2007 and 2008.

I do want to have a few ground rules, though, to keep things orderly:

1. We of course know that a DoE expansion is on the way, we've even seen part of it. We also know a cavernous water expansion is on the way. So those don't count -- we don't need to ask for 'em, they're already on it.

2. Short lists, please. No more than 5 items. We can't expect EVERYTHING in the next few years, and this is really meant as a list of what you'd like to see NEXT -- not a wish list of everything you'd ever want to see, ever. Just a list of what feels like it belongs on your shelf by late 2007.

3. Despite what I said in #1, SF furnishings definitely count. We know that DF is aware that these sets should be made, but we haven't heard anything in awhile, so this is a good place for SF fans to let DF know that these sets really need to happen soon. If a lot of SF fans ask for 'em here, it might push some other stuff off the top of the list, which could be a really great thing.


But other than those rules, the sky's the limit -- what does everyone want? Please, as many people as possible post here, so we can get a close-to-definitive list of what people want to see.



I'll get started, with three items:

1. Sewer set. I hadn't really been all that excited about this concept, until I saw IO's "Thieves' World" post in Cool Photos. Now I feel that I really need a sewer set soon. All the work done to develop the cavernous water sets can be applied to a new environment. Lots of cool features, traps, obstacles are possible here, it really seems more and more cool the more I think about it. Probably doesn't need to be quite as expansive as the cavernous water sets, though -- one set, maybe around the size of the lake set, should be enough, at least to get started.

2. MBS accessories. I'd like to see an MBS expansion, but as much as I'd like to see more building opportunities, I really think the MBS needs furnishings more than anything else. Stairs, railings, fireplaces, beds, bookshelves, and on and on and on. Maybe could be done as a Wicked set, but with the emphasis on accessories over basic building elements (as much as I want those half-corners and half-walls...)

3. SF furnishings. I have to admit, I was never crazy about SF beta. It's neat, but it doesn't thrill me the way the original sets did, or the way alpha did. I think the SF stuff could get a HUGE kick in the @#$@ from some amazingly way cool furnishings. I have no preference for what gets made or how it's handled -- I just want it to be cooool.

And as with the MBS idea, I think it would be good to aim for a cross between a Wicked set and a straightforward accessories/furniture set. Some of this stuff should be done "embedded," as a building element, and some of it should be free-standing and "placeable."

And that's my list. Tons of stuff I'd LIKE to see, tons of stuff I hope to see in years to come -- but these are the three I think would be great for 2007-2008.

1. Wicked additions 3 (made for MBS), which could include: carpets, wall piece with a mirror, wall piece with a deer's head on it (hunting trophy), plus all ideas made by L.

2. Additional furnishings, such as an altar, fireplace, etc.

3. Sewer set: that would be very cooool. Too bad it couldn't come with scratch-n-sniff. ;)

If there is a sci-fi accessory set, can I suggest a captain's chair?

Catacombs: inset wall graves and tomb pieces

1. Fantasy Wicked Additions 3
There are still a few holes in the Fantasy Line, and lots of room for decorative items to mix things up. Spiral Stairs going into the floor,
round pedestals, a new fountain, and so on.

2. Medieval Advanced Builder
This would be for half walls and half corners, and other "embedded" pieces -- actual structural elements that go on the table, not on other pieces.

3. Medieval Accessories
This would be for fireplaces, stairs, railings, bookshelves, etc. -- these are pieces that go on top of structural elements.

4. the Return of Fantasy Narrow Passages and/or the Return of Fantasy Diagonal Walls
Some of the discontinued items would be great to have again, even if they are only available once every year.

5. something for the Sci-Fi customers

Here's my "short" list...

1.) MBS Acessories Kit / Advanced Builder Set (as jackattack named): Walls with torch sconces on them. Stairs. Double door for wider entry. Wooden pillars/columns to support 2nd level pieces. Window inserts. Sign posts for outside of establishments.

2.) Medieval Accessores: Beds, straw bundles, barrels, stacks of firewood, buckets, brooms, food items, carts/buggies

3.) Cavernous River Walls Set: Not sure if this counts against what L mentioned up top or not but... More walls--straight and curved. Maybe throw in a couple of square (plain) lake pieces too(?).

That's all I can come up with now. I'm not feeling so hot today. ;-}~

POLL: Seriously, what do we want to see next? 8 Years, 2 Months ago  
1) Cavern wicked additions set - with small and large cavernous stairs, cavern entrance, stalagmite pillars that can support a second level, and maybe some more cavern walls similar to the ones in the River and Walls set.

2) New furnishings/dungeon dressings set - torture wrack, wizard lab, free standing bookshelf, armory, fireplace, kitchen counter, etc.

3) Ice additions set - ice covered dungeon or cavern walls (or ice pieces that can go over existing dungeon and cavern walls), ice rocks, ice stalagmites, person in block of translucent "ice."

4) New "Fantasy Starter Set" which includes many 2"x2" dungeon floor pieces that don't suffer from shrinkage as with the old pieces, and which fit nicely together as well as the MBS or Den of Evil floor pieces, and which don't use the bow-tie connectors

5) MBS advanced builder set - half walls, half corners, balconies, wood pillars

I'm greedy, so limiting my list to 5 items is difficult L...

1. Sci-Fi Furnishings/WA - (there's probably 5 sets worth of ideas on the board already)

2. Cavernous River Walls set(s) - (various shapes, various styles, various calicum deposits)

3. MBS accesories/WA (railing, stairs, new doorway, new window, etc)

4. Cavernous floors designed for use with Cavernous River Walls (4x4, no bowties)

5. Sci-Fi Furnishings/WA 2 - (yes, I want at least two different sets)



Yeah, no luck limiting it to 5...

6. Church/cathedral set - the opposite of Den of Evil (great suggestion DaggerdaleDM)

7. The Hive (alien/insect, useful for both sci-fi and fantasy)

8. MBS 2 (same basic idea as MBS, but a little different style, preferably able to mix/match with original MBS)


Of course I'd buy just about any of the other suggestions that have been mentioned as well... assuming I can afford them at the time.

1. ... . We also know a cavernous water expansion is on the way. ... .

... .

L

We do? :/
I know I have been spending a bit less time on here than before due to the world and its "fun", but I do not remember any promised sets past the DoE WA set.
Where did I miss Stefan and/or Jeff saying anything about another Cavern set coming out in 2006-07? :/

My list:

1) Science-Fiction Master Maze Set: Gamma: Science-Fiction Furnishings: :cool:

A double layer white box filled with a variety of generic pieces that can be used on a variety of planet-bound and ship-board settings.
Bunks, computer consoles, sick-bay equipment and so forth.

NO CAPTAIN'S CHAIR :mad: - it would make the set far less useful for those who play planetary games or space-bourne games like B5 where there is no command chair on the station.
Any captain's chair should be released as a convention-only special or some other limited manufature and release. :)
Really guys, how many captain's chairs does anyone really need? :rolleyes:

2) Science-Fiction Master Maze Set: Delta: Science-Fiction Narrow Passages Set: :cool:

A single layer white box with pieces like those from MM014, but sculpted to fit this setting.
Maybe a couple other pieces added that would be good for this genre.

3) Science-Fiction Master Maze Set: Epsilon: Science-Fiction Advanced Builders Set: :cool:

A single layer white box like MM017, but resculpted for the setting and a few additional pieces to take up the room that the already published pieces such as the long hall would have filled.

4) Fantasy Master Maze Set: MM014 Narrow Passages Set: :cool:

This is a must re-issue!

5) Cavern Master Maze Set: MORE :cool:
Always can use more!

Well, there is my list. :D
Surprise, surprise, to all of you that my list is mostly and is prioritized towards almost exclusively to only one genre of Master Maze - Science-Fiction. :)
Sorry to shock everyone. :lol:
Well, only a little sorry, that it is. :P

RF -- Stefan has said that he's well aware that the water sets are missing a few pieces (like a 1-corner lake piece) and that they were only left out to keep the sets affordably-sized. I don't think he's explicitly said the expansion is coming, but he's directly implied it. He knows some pieces are needed, he fully intends to get to them. We don't have a schedule or anything, but it's a set he knows is needed and intends to make, which is why I thought it wasn't needed on any request lists. The point of the lists is to let Stefan know what we want, and, well, he knows that one. (I left SF things on because I wanted Stefan to see just how many people out there really want this stuff!)

Didn't mean to play the tyrant in asking for a list of 5, but I figured a really long list might just become static to Stefan, too much to read and take seriously.

I'd love to see the narrow passage set re-issued, myself, actually, if I can increase my list by one -- it's just unbelievably useful. As easy support for higher levels (esp. with MBS!), as narrow passages, as funky ruins -- there's so much, I wish I had more than one, and it's a shame for anyone who doesn't have any....
