TOPIC: First Game with DF

First Game with DF 1 Year, 1 Month ago  
I’m a little embarrassed to admit that after a year of collecting DF I still hadn’t used it in a game. For the past year I’ve been fortunate to play in a friend’s wonderful campaign, but the logistics never worked to use DF in a game I wasn’t running. Now that it’s my turn in the DM chair again I was excited to see how DF would perform in game (it’s certainly fun to just build with).

Since I’m a little rusty on DMing, I decided to ease into it with a readymade Pathfinder adventure, Hollow’s Last Hope (spoiler alert). Below is my take on the dungeon appearing in that module. It’s a relatively small dungeon, but it really added something special to the game. The verdict is in… RPG + DF = PURE AWESOME! (I’m sure no one, including me, is surprised by this finding)

Our adventure begins in the small village of Falcon’s Hollow, where the residents have been stricken with a deadly illness. The local herbalist enlists the heroes to recover three rare ingredients, with which she believes an antidote can be brewed. After recovering two of the ingredients deep within the Darkmooon Vale, the party journeys to a long abandoned dwarven monastery, where they hope to find the final ingredient; ironbloom mushrooms. However, as our heroes soon discover, the monastery is not as abandoned as they believed…

That is amazing! I like how you used the ruins pieces on top of the water tile very cool.

Very nicely done! The use of the water tiles is inspiring -- I will need to borrow that idea!

That is a brilliant set-up. Great attention to detail. By adding the green hedges / bushes and ruins you have really brought that map alive. Similarly you have used the green scenery and ruins really well to bring an 'underground' lake to an on ground pond by covering the stalagmites etc.

Well done. Your hours of "play building" have definitely paid off.

What did you make the greenery out of? The spider-webbing was cotton or the fuzzy stuff you buy at (USA) Halloween?

That's awesome, your players must have been stoked. I just got my first DF sets in the mail so I can't wait to get in on the action. Where did you get your gridded green mat from if I may ask?

Great ideas. I love the plants in the dungeon!
The library reminds me of the movie "Logan's Run". :)

Wow! Beautiful lay-out. Your players are very lucky to have such a talented and imaginative DM. I'd love to play in one of your games.

Congratulations Feymous! Your setup is fantastic. Beauty really is in the details. Did you made the pieces of cloth/cardboard covered with vegetation placed on the "outside" of your Cavern Lake Sets especially for this build?


p.s. jls304, Feymous is one of the few exceptional women lurking in this forum.
p.p.s. There should be more women gaming!
