Underground lake and river set? 9 Years, 6 Months ago  
First of all, this Q&A section was a great idea! Thanks! We know DF is a small company and we can't expect constant, prolonged presence on the boards, but it's a good place to put questions to be answered when you have time.

So -- there was this announced "Underground Lake and River" set awhile back. Since then we've seen drawings of the Dark World sets, the SF stuff has come out, and lots of talk about future offerings -- but no word on this.

A set of questions all having to do with this set:

a) Is it still planned?

b) Do you realize how many people want it?

c) If it's been pushed back, PLEASE could you reconsider? This is an extremely good idea that should not be let go. Too many people want it.

d) Would you consider taking into account petitions, pre-orders, or anything else that we, as fans, might do in order to try to get this thing off the ground?

I realize "planned" can mean anything and it really just means "We haven't completely ruled it out." But some of us are hoping for more than that -- we want to know someone is actively getting this done so we can have it in the next year or two! Please! I'll buy three! Four! Five!!

Stefan has been tinkering with this set design for some time. He is having some techinical challenges with regard to how he wants to it work and how it is manufactured.

I am not sure how far along his work has progressed. I know that he has not started sculpting the pieces -- so it will probably be at least a year. I know that kills everyone, but he likes to take his time and get it right. His work on the cavern sets has been simply beautiful.

I will ask him to respond here.

Jeez...it was "at least a year" two years ago. Not even sculpted yet?!? No offense, but Stephan should *really* be putting all other projects on hold to work only on these...the demand for these is so high that this set could make a mint for DF.

This is disheartening and frustrating.

MrMorden, maybe I'm just being optimistic here, but I think the key line in the post is "His work on the cavern sets has been simply beautiful", which to me implies more work beyond the Cavern and Cavernous Passages set. Maybe a Caverns II or Wicked Additions set for the line?

Or, it could just be me and my wishful thinking.

Jeff, please feel free to confirm or deny. (Please!)

One can hope anyway. I would love to see an Advanced Builder for the Caverns set. Nice to get some 45 degree angles and smaller pieces.
