How is Dark World coming along? 9 Years, 6 Months ago  
:shock: Thanks Admin for the photo. I must say the first thing that struck me was how well the paint job will blend with our current Fantasy Stuff. I don't know why but I was thinking up somekind of reddish color to them but this is a Great Paint Theme. I know the name is not up for debate so I'll just try to remember to change my slogan soon. Also the the Room and Passage set is some welcome news to me, " those small sets, OHHHH. " I want 2 sets. I would want more but don't want to wind up with just tooo many passages. I hope that if this set sell out " and by the way this tread has filled up I should think that it will, could those E'vil Wickeder Additions include a large floor and a long Wall???? Huuummmmmm??? Oh yeah before I forget :twisted: :evil: :twisted: :evil: :twisted: :evil: :twisted: :D

So DOE it is, s'be't.
The only reason I hope it sells well is so that DF will have fluid capital to spend on more worthy projects.


Didn't you jump all over me several weeks ago for criticizing a decision that DF made in their marketing choices? Seems the you really only mind when people criticize decisions you like!

There has been exactly ONE negative opinion of this set on these boards...sounds like DF is making yet another "worthy" product to me!

Looks like 2 sets is the concensus. I don't think a run of 1000 is going to last long.

Which brings up another question...WHY is this a "limited availability" set, instead of just a parallel line? Surely there was a lot of expense and time involved in getting these pieces sculpted and produced. Isn't that investment mitigated by killing off the set possibly before it has run out of buyers?

I could see buying several setts of this stuff, but maybe not all at once. It sucks that I'll probably end of with fewer sets than I'd like because they will go out of production before my wallet catches up! :(

My guess is that the room/passage combo is what's going to be limited. If the limited run sells well (which I'm sure it will, despite the odd dissenter in the group), then we'll probably see a DoE Starter and DoE Passage set like the ones we're seeing for Fantasy and Sci-Fi.

I'd rather think that maybe they would go back to the larger sets. These $50 sets are really expensive. I don't need the fancy packaging.

Why look for an argument Morden?
What was the purpose of this posting. but to antagonize?

Morden, I have been critical of some of DF's decisions, as I have posted on this board before, for years.
I disagreed with Stefan years ago about not being serious about pursuing a Sci-Fi Master Maze system and so on.
Which criticism of yours however long ago did I disagree with?
Or was I disagreeing with your tone more than your position?

However you and others here feel DOE is worthy Morden, I still think the DOE set is some serious steps off in the wrong direction.
I am concerned about being able to promote DF product in the more conservative, whether R or D or whatever, areas in this country.
I KNOW it will not be a big seller in the Northern Rockies.
Then again, that region has fewer people in it than the Baltimore Metro area so there is not a major DF marketing concern.
My concern is more about areas that have greater population, but are still morally conservative.
There are larger population areas with successful MADD (Mothers against Dungeons & Dragons) programs and other such groups.
Having lived in the Deep South at times, where MADD is fairly strong, even wargamers like myself have been painted with their large brush.
We (my wargaming group) literally had to make a public case to avoid the problems MADD can stir up for RPG gamers.
DOE will be bad advertising for DF in such areas; there are just no two ways about in it in this issue in these areas.
MADD and other groups like it, will use DOE as a reason to campaign against DF as a whole company and that WILL hurt sales.
I am sorry that this is the case, but it is the truth.

I say let them campaign against it all they want. This is one issue I have to seriously disagree with you on RabidFox. DF should not have to censor itself to comply with the rampid conservatism that has temporarily taken over this country. These groups have been around since the late 70's. I have no fear of them.

I can agree to disagree with you brvheart about this.

I cannot agree that conservatism in the U.S.A. is temporary or recent.
Over the last 200+ years, Europe has always complained about how conservative the U.S.A. has been.
It even became a global joke forty or so years ago.
Lately, being moral has just become a popular issue.
I do not believe it will last as a popular issue, but will always be the core of most Americans.

On the other hand, MADD has had some serious influence though at times.
It is heavily rumored that their campaigning was a contributing factor to that multi-million dollar return to TSR in December 1996 that did them in to where WOTC could buy them for almost nothing.
GDW and West End were also recipients of MADD's efforts and see where they went.
How many other gaming companies have also been the focus of their ire?
How many of them are still with us?
Some folks may think MADD is a joke, but I have seen them in action and I do not think their efforts are jokable in the least.
They are fanatics and will not stop until RPG gaming has gone the way of the dodo and fantasy wargaming is as present as trilobytes.

I don't think he means the MADD, Mothers Against Drunk Driving, but
a group i have never heard of using the same initals

There are larger population areas with successful MADD (Mothers against Dungeons & Dragons) programs and other such groups.


You'd think the other MADD would, oh bad pun comming up, get Mad about someone else using thier name... ;)

I originally hit the Dwarven Forums hard and fast when I first got my DF scenery.

Those times were good. But now a certain user has appeared on the boards. I no longer post here anymore, thanks to Rabidfox.

It has gotten to the point that I am no longer even going to read any thread that I see his name attatched to.

I see that a Moderator has been assigned to the boards, which before RF's appearance wasn't needed.

Thanks RF for completely screwing over a perfectly good forum. I wish I had been approached to Moderate this forum, as you would've been instantly banned purely because of your need to cause trouble. Get a new hobby and ruin someone elses forums. This is a forum for company info and the companies FANS! obviously your not a fan of the product, so please get lost!

To The Moderator, Jeff, Stefen, L, MLV, and the other great FANS of this excellent product and it's makers... I appologise for my off topic brain explosion but enough is enough. I have had to put up with RabidFox's crap for one post too many, and it has finally gotten to me.

Ban me for the personal attack, for Off Topic Posting, or for any other reason you feel the need too. I don't much care anymore. If I get banned for this it will be an extremely bad act of judgement. I have been nothing but courteous and pleasant in EVERY one pf my posts on these Forums, until now. If you want to stop others from 'TEXTually exploding' in the future, then ban RF as soon as possible, otherwise this will quickly become an RF forum and not a DF one.

By the way, the DEN OF EVIL scenery is absolutely gorgeous. It will be a great pity that I will never own any, being an international customer. The name for the set is PERFECT also.

I appologise to everyone EXCEPT RabidFox for this post, I have just had enough of each thread being poluted by his hatred of the product and it's fans.

Thankyou, and more than likely... goodbye.

Thanks. I missed that little snippet about the other MADD. I would be mad if I was MADD and someone else decided they were MADD. It is all so maddening.
