Oct-Dec 2007 Contest -- The Watery Cavern 6 Years, 11 Months ago  
**** This contest runs until the end of Dec. 10th. ****


This contest will be a BIG layout. I have always dreamed of what could be done with one each of the various cavernous sets, so let's see what awesome layouts you can put together. I know this is a lot of work, so we are upping the prize for this contest. Please make a cool setup use ONE each of the following sets:

- Cavern Set

- Cavernous Passage Set

- Cavernous River and Walls Set

- Cavernous Lake Set

- Cavernous Lake Expansion Set


Let's see how creative everyone can get with this challenge. I can't wait to see all five in action! The winner will receive a $200 gift certificate as well as one of the proof "Cavernous Chasm Sets" to be mailed byDec. 15th. Just in time for Christmas!

These set-ups will be big, so be sure to set your f-stop high to get the deepest field of view possible. It can make a BIG difference. Have fun!


(BTW, you can also use any official DF miniature or accessories set you wish.)

Cool Beans!!!

WOW - I might not have a big enough table for all this!

Anyway, sure we can't use two cavern sets? I'm thinking we might run out of walls....

You don't have to use ALL the pieces from all 5 sets -- so stop when your design runs out of walls....or just say screw it...the lake continues on out of view.

I've missed the last two contests due to time constraints (full time work and full time college student), but I will put something together for this one.

This sounds great !! I have to admit I also missed the first two contests. Building on the dininig table isn't ideal if you want to have a great design. It seldom works first time around.

But it seems I got a solution to this problem - at least I found a place with natural sunlight for photography (in the afternoon) where I can leave all my stuff at least for a few days (my wife got away with the Ice set after 2 weeks - hey - wouldn't have survived 24 hours on the dining table).

Maybe I even get the kids involved and allow them to place all the stuff first.

So... much. ... fun!

So.... little... time!

I'm gonna have to get in on this..
Not entirely sure HOW....

L

(methinks I detect a small pattern here -- while you DF people had all the cool tavern goodies, you asked us to build taverns before we had our hands on them. . . now, you have all these cool cavernous chasm and bridge pieces, and you seek pics of large cavern setups... it does do a good job of whetting our appetites for future releases, I admit...)

Definatly a smart marketing plan.

I am actually this close to ordering the Lake Expansion and Lake set so I could just enter this competition. Even tough the chances of me winning are pretty low.

Heheh northman :) I'm in the same boat.

Have been thinking about ordering, and this will probably push me towards it. Again, not that I have any chance of winning, but it would be great to just be in the game, so to speak :D

The Island of Thanatos

The Island of Thanatos is a dormant volcano jutting up from the icy and fog-shrouded waters many miles off the shore of the mainland. All sailors of good judgment avoid this rocky and treacherous island because it is home to a shadowy and little known cult of death worshippers: the cult of Thanatos.

Even the cultists of Thanatos do not permanently live on this inhospitable rock. Priestesses and their initiates come to the island to perform their special and secret ceremonies only four times per year, which are rumored to coincide with the seasonal solstices and equinoxes.

It is said that the cultists leave valuable offerings to their great god Thanatos in the caves. However only the most brave or the most foolhardy of adventurers that would attempt an exploration or treasure hunt here!

An expert pilot is required to bring a craft safely to the small natural landing on the island’s south coast. A narrow channel between cliffs is the only approach to the landing, which itself is surrounded by numerous rocky shoals. Unpredictable currents create whirlpools where the sea meets natural rivers flowing from interior caverns.

The Thanatos cultists have cleared two caverns: one for use by the lay initiates and one used by the priestesses for the most arcane rituals and magics. The initiates’ cavern is accessed directly from the landing spit; the priestesses must cross a rickety bridge over turbulent waters to enter the murky grotto dedicated to Thanatos. Natural cavernous passages extend deep into the dormant volcano. These interior caves are seldom used or explored. Cultists have gone into these deep and dank places never to return. Whispers of the existence of ghosts, wraiths and worse abound.

Adventurers beware!
