Tom,

Thanks for the step by step of how the layout went together. It's really interesting to me to see how others approach putting the layouts together.

Just browsing this website gives me lots of ideas of how to put the pieces together. Without seeing other's work I know I would just be doing simple, single level layouts and not taking full advantage of what can be done with Dwarven Forge.

I think Tom, and a few other regulars here, have done a great job showcasing new and innovative uses for DF elements.

That said, I'm a big fan of "regular ol' displays" with the stuff. For a simple reason: I don't wanna have to use my imagination. ;)

Seriously, though, one of hte things that first drew me to DF was being able to get an actual model of the environments we were playing. Seeing the walls, the doors, the stuff on the floor, the cracks in the walls, all of it. It was a rush.

Now that I have a bunch of DF and a bunch of stuff made with Hirst Arts, I can't really go back to the "I'm stacking these dice and pretending they're skulls" or "This wall here represents a tower" In other words -- putting a hallway piece on its side, turning pieces upside-down, pretending the 2x3 or 3x3 floor pieces are actually walls -- I just don't dig that. Tom shows the best way to do it, and most of hte time he manages to get me convinced that it can work. But on the whole, if I want taller walls or different elements, I want them fully realized. It just seems a shame to invest in something as elaborately detailed and worked out as DF and then stop at the last ten feet and say "This piece stands in for..."

You know?

That said, some of this stuff is amazing, and I've certainly gotten more creative since I've been watching what people post here. I've grown fonder and fonder of stacking, and I do think some of these pieces, esp. the cavern pieces, work on their own, or even upside-down. (Of course, I'd also love to see pieces officially designed for that -- ceiling elements with stalactites, for example...)

Tom--nice setup. You were inspired by the Da Vinci Code? Did I read that correctly? If you enjoyed that book you should look up The Rule of Four by Ian Caldwell and Dustin Thomason. It's an excellent book along the same lines as Da Vinci Code. Two college students are trying to solve a centuries-old mystery about who wrote a particular book and what it's really about.
