Thorshammer,

I think this unfortunately just can't be happening. With such an elaborate Set (with maybe 12 different cast pieces?) to come, DF would loose money to make the 12*$10000 molds necessary. This is a $120 000 investment! When you think that DF perhaps sells at most 1000 per year of a specific specialized Set (You should know that only 1500 Sets of the limited edition Sets were ever produced and that only 1 sold out in the last 10 years), selling them $120 a piece would only cover the costs of the molds, not the production costs nor any kind of profit to make such an enterprise feasible.

For pieces in PVC/Dwarvenite to work, you need a small number of pieces and/or Huge number of Sets sold. Next on the Dwarvenite list is Game Tiles Passage and Caverns, unfortunately not sewers. Sewers is NOT as appealing to mass market as the stone walls we've seen with the Game Tiles.

There are indeed lots of pieces involved in this very modular Sewer Set...about 14 so far....may need to break it up into 2 sets...but it is really looking good....won't be available till early next year I'm afraid...don't buy any sewers before then, believe me, this will be the sewer's to end all sewer's....even some Rat-men involved...

Stefan, are we looking at a March planned release date then for the Sewers then?

Also: How will the Sewers release date relate, time wise, to the Catacombs II release date - I hope they're not at the same time because that may be too painful for many of our wallets to stand?

Just planning the saving of gaming pennies!

The sewers will go very nicely with a campaign I'm planning for the release of D&D Next.... Can't wait.


Dave


PS For what it's worth, can I suggest that you do make it into two sets, a passageways set and a rooms set?

just not sure yet of the dates I am afraid....until everyone gets their Game Tiles we are unsure of our standing....5000+ orders all at once to various parts of the world is very demanding and if even the slightest thing goes wrong it may cost $10,000's of dollars....our margins for the Kickstarter were very slim and so we must be very prudent....

Stefan, nothing wrong with a little paranoia. Take your time, the sewers will be worth the wait. By the way, I just received my Gygax magazine today. Excellent read and your maps, unparallelled.

Fair enough. I totally understand you need to prioritise the Kickstarter because of its size and because as its DF's reputation on the line!

Once we get over that first kickstarter hump, we should be much better going forward:)
