WAIT A MINUTE!!!!!

Stefan, it SOUNDED like you were saying the 'sort of advanced builder set' is a SCI-FI set!!!
PLEASE correct me if I'm wrong here!!
Because if I'm RIGHT, I just jumped back into DF in a BIG SPLASH, where I had almost retired my collection to the attic for long-term storage!

YEE-HAH!!

What? No,no, the Sci-Fi Set is mostly an accessory type set. (coming in August) The follow up would be more of a mixture including some elements other than furniture.

The Advanced Builder 2 Set is for the Classic dungeons. Also, Jeff has just informed me that it might not make it into the August Container, AAArrrrggg!! The large new version Room Set will be in the August container which will be much needed for all the newbies.

I was worried the other way, Sci-Fi at DF (and in general) really needs some good accessories with out Skulls, or designed with a more War-gaming motif to bulk it up. If they are pre-painted all the better.

I am now looking at August on this as a good thing, it is time to start saving money...

Now if you drop me an e-mail with the final set components in it and costs then well i can know how big to budget... :D ;)

Stefan,


Just curious... There was a hint a while ago... About a certain kind of environmentally challenged set that might have been worked on.... By a certain artist... Any chance that we will see that in 08?

Advanced Builder 2? Whoo hoo! The Advanced Builder set was one of my favorites right out of the gate. I'm really looking forward to AB2.

I also forgot to mention that in the new container will be a new and improved larger Room Set (no Bow Ties, more pieces)
Will this also be the container that has the bow-tieless(is that a word?) Cavern and Cavernous Passages Sets, or will they still be in stock in June?

How about a few teaser photos??? I Would love some more info, or clues on the new limited edition set mentioned earlier (Jeff's set?), or any new fantasy sets in the works.

Wishful thinking from a gaming fanatic....

August is just in time for Autumn, and the cold gaming weather for us northerners!!!!

Hmmm.. very curious. I have to admit, the ABS is not one of my favorite DF sets... although it can be very useful, I tend never to have the energy I would need to make the best use of it. It's good for tweaking things, but.... it's just not the first set I go for when I have limited time and space.

Still, I'm very excited to see the new stuff -- my guess is that it will probably involve some stacking abilities, or moveable walls -- the kinds of things, in other words, that Stefan has gotten really excited about with the cavern setting. Moveable walls, in particular, I can see as something that won't look "exciting in photos" (since they'll just look like regular DF setups) but would give us a lot of creative freedom. Personally, I haven't felt the need for them 90% of the time, but I have to admit they'd be great for placing on the large floors when I stack layers - if I want to have a second floor, those large floor pieces make it so easy, but then if I want WALLS on the second floor, I also have to find support for each and every wall, and it can get very difficult. A simple "place and drop" wall system would solve that instantly (and allow me greater freedom to make slightly smaller "top floors")

But this is all speculation... we'll just have to wait and see...

While ANY new DF product is a good thing, I have to say that 2008 seems to have lost the wonderful momentum gained in the previous years.

After a lull in production and development of new sets while DF re-tooled their business model a few years back we were treated to a huge surge of new, never-before-seen environments and an aggressive release and re-stock schedule (my wallet is still recovering). :)

For me, and I'm not a Sci-Fi collector, it seems that 2008 is shaping up to be a quiet year after the rapid-fire releases of the DOE, CR&L, and MBS sets and their counterparts. :/

I'd love to see some teasers photos of the alluded to secret "Jeff set" ... something, anything, to up the excitement level again. For me, 2008 is, so far, ho-hum ...

That's just my take ... I'm sure there are a litany of reasons and issues that have slowed development, and I can certainly understand any and all of them ... especially in this economy (or lack thereof). I'm just saying that 2008 doesn't seem as exciting for me.

I suppose that's OK, though ... I need the gas money !!!!

Thanks for all the curious questions. I just received in many of the sample sets and they are getting photographed now. We will have a lot of info in 1-2 weeks. Short list:

1) Yes, the Cavern and Cavernous Passage Sets will be in stock in August with no bow ties

2) We will start pre-orders for the last of the Den of Evil (Room and Passage) Sets, new Sci-Fi set and all the other "re-vamped" classic sets around June 1st.

3) Teaser sketches and photos will also be published in the next 1-2 weeks for the new Advanced Builder Set 2 and the new "Realm of the Ancients Set". (Oops...did I just give away the new set's title?). Both of these should be out in November.
