Stefan,

I just realized something and I was wondering if I'm correct in this assumption.

In a previous posting you offered a up question regarding the possible interest in a narrow passages set with a different syle of walls to the original set.

Were you considering a catacombs set (similar to the ones in Rome)?

If so, that would be AWESOME!

Just wondering.

Wereweasel,
Awesome idea!
That would be one of the solutions to several problems the set poses...basically the "look" of the walls would be the same (for those who wanted that) while at the same time they would also be a little different...

I reckon you could easily put together a good 'Catacombs Set' by adding 6-8 Narrow Dead End pieces to a Narrow Passages Set.

A narrow cavernous passageways set would be an excellent catacombs set!

If the look of the walls is basically the same with "catacomb additions", you could even throw in several 2 inch walls with catacomb details that you could use in rooms combined with the basic fantasy line, and with the passages and the narrow dead ends, you could make nasty catacombs!!! A couple of accesories in the way of the skull monolites of the river set... and you got a super nice set!!!

That's great to hear!

The Catacombs would definately be amongst my most used sets, if/when they become a reality.

If they do, please add some of those burial recesses in a couple of the walls -that would be great!

They'd also transition quite well with sewers, I would presume. ;)

What is the actual difference (beyond the name) between a Narrow Passages Set, and a Catacombs set? Do the pieces have the same configuration and different stonework, or the same stonework and different configurations? Will a Catacombs Set have to have graves in the walls or floors?

Narrow Passages can be used to build not only catacombs (underground tombs), but mazes, access tunnels, cloisters, rows of pillars in a standard room, and other things. I'm lobbying to keep sets as generic and versatile as possible, rather than locking a whole set into a specific use -- I'd rather tell players to imagine additional details, than tell them to ignore features that are present on the pieces.

Perhaps tombstones could be something we add (a "wafer" that lies on the floor?), or "alternate" pieces included in the set alongside "plain" or "standard" pieces (Wicked Narrow Passages?). In addition to markers on the floor, there could also be rectangular slots or stone "panels" on the walls.

You know, I was just going to say essentially the same thing.

A catacomb set would be great, but that's not what I'd like to see when I ask for a Narrow Passages reissue. I just want more narrow passages!

And I have to ask -- I'm not sure, Stefan, why you refer to "problems the set poses." Is there a problem with just reissuing the exact same set? A lot of people have been asking for it, and with the new pre-order system, you wouldn't have to make an overwhelming amount and go through whatever might have led to poor sales of the first set. You could just make a small amount, put them in a container with some other sets, and sell them to those who pre-ordered them, I would imagine. I'm sure it is more complicated than that, but still -- with all this interest in that set, why think it needs to be changed? People who want that set, presumably and for the most part, DON'T want it changed! They want THAT set!

I certainly wouldn't object to including OTHER pieces with it, or maybe having all the basic elements from the first set, but fewer of them, to make room for variations -- but what some of us are asking about is just a way to acquire those particular pieces again, not variations on them.

I've been toying with my NPS a lot recently -- that secret bookshelf door just cries out for them -- and I have to say, I'd LOVE another set just like this one!

Just my 2 cents here: I'd be really interested in a new Narrow Passages set. The catacombs idea is a cool one too. :)

Yeah man, when I talk about tomb stones, I meant accesories just like crates or barrels, not modifying the piece, of course! I agree completely with you, jackattack, I would had not explained it better than you.

I confess that I at last got standard narrow passages, but of course I think the "narrow passages new format" should allow to remain "neutral". But hey, with some imagination (something that stefan has tons), it could have the holes and alcobes in the walls, and we could fix then with skulls, corpses, etc. (The set could come with some tombstones, and some skulls and corpses)

This way you could use the narrow passage pieces without accesories, and the holes in the walls would not change very much the look of the passage.

What do you think?
