HELLSCAPE SET QUESTION TO STEFAN 5 Years, 1 Month ago  
Stefan,

I would like to know something very important :



Why ?
It's unbelievable you didn't make the choice of the compatibility with cavern sets.
Colors aren't the same after the chasm set which was the last into this gamma we were waiting for this a long time ago so I don't understand even if I know there are 2 other sets planed.

HELLSCAPE SET QUESTION TO STEFAN 5 Years, 1 Month ago  
Stefan answered this before, when people asked if the colors would match. He said:

"This is because the Hellscape is really a new landscape in itself, any character walking on the Hellscape will start to take damage unless properly protected from intense heat. The ground should burn through regular shoes or boots within 1 round, and then cause 1-3 points of damage a round....the very air within the hellscape will burn the lungs and set scrolls and easily flamable items on fire.....

For transition to other environments, in the set, there are little "Lava flow" pieces, very thin, which are meant as transition pieces from the Hellscape to any other type of Set. Basically, you can place them on top of whatever other set you decide to place next to the Hellscape...you should place them so that it looks like the cooled "lavaflow" has seeped unto the other environment."

Basically, what you need is a lot of those lavaflow pieces -- or hopefully there will be larger ones specifically for this sort of thing in the Hellscape II set -- so that the pieces work in caverns. The two colors would make sense, then -- the Hellscape bits would be cooling lava which would be flowing over the cavern pieces which would be regular stone (limestone or whatever).

Hope that helps!

Thank for reporting me the official answer.
I won't buy it then.I will wait for other sets to see if it's compatible or not.
The terrible color difference is not matching at all to me with cavern sets.
I don't understand why ROTA 3 isn't there yet ... why starting a new gamma when the other aren't completed yet ?
We wait & see

Caverns have a wet and slimy look. This can't look the same for a lava and cinder setting. I totally understand the color scheme and there are "overflow" pieces to make the switch from one to the other.

HeroQuest:
I too, was very skeptical of the color difference found on Hellscape BUT no longer! Today, I received my sets of Hellscape and made a few simple setups with both the cavern sets and Den of Evil and I can only say...WOW!!! The transition between environments (from normal to extreme) are excellent because of the overflow pieces -- IMHO I believe it gives players something to think about before carelessly running into the hellish environment.

I also think that more overflow pieces in each set would be better for the type of setup you have shown on your pic. Personally, I would have a complete cavern setup transition into a complete hellscape setup (or vice-versa) but not combine the two unless I had enough overflow pieces.

Best Regards...

While you can't mix 'n' match Hellscape with the Cavern sets, you can certainly build your Hellscape to branch off of a cavern setup.

I got mine today, and I'm going to open them up right now!

Check this link : www.dwarvenforge.com/dwarvenforums/viewtopic.php?id=3389

On the photo (using flash) you already can see there is a difference of colors between cavern sets and chasm set which isn't normal to me since it belongs to the same universe.
Lord who sold me lava set 1 2 3 and more also made a difference of color you can see it very well.
I reall wait for REAL pieces which are making the REAL transition for instance a corridor become grey and progressive floor tiles.

Suggestions for HS expansion:

-Drop down pieces pools of lava that could be placed anywhere. at least 2 different sizes
-Large lava "rivers"

Agreed completely. The set is basically incomplete without rivers, pools, etc. i.e. Something similar to what Lord did as previously mentioned. Until then I wait. :)

HELLSCAPE SET QUESTION TO STEFAN 5 Years ago  
I'm too really looking forward pieces of lava similar to the lake and river sets, it would be so awesome!

Hellscape right now it's awesome for creating the environment, bt what I really want to make with lava are large obstacles that the pc's need to overpass in some way... and the chasm sets and it's bridge are going to be so useful...

I don't really care very much about the colour pattern. I was concerned too at first, but now I have the pieces I see that in normal light it does look much better beside the cavern pieces than the flash light photos, and this colour make it very realistic in a lava environment... not to mention the amazing details of overflowing torrents pouring out of the cracks on the rocks, the red glowing lines between pieces of rocks, and the more volcanic look of the texture of the surfaces (really, even the border part of the pieces, which mostly won't be seen, are just real).

I plan to use Hellscape besides cavern in my next setup, I'll post pics as soon I can. I too would find great if the overflown pieces could be purchased individually, I think they really make the difference.

Greetings,

I really like how you can make the hellscape tiles look like lava pouring into adjacent sections. This set is just so cool. One of my favorite sets.
