Anyone know where I could buy deluxe room, narrow passage, octagonal ? 8 Years, 8 Months ago  
I've been scouring the internet trying to find the deluxe room set, narrow passages set, and octagonal room set with no luck.

I would (will) order them from DF directly if (when) they're in stock, but it seems that might be a long time if ever.

Anyone know where I might find any of these? I wouldn't be opposed to buying from an individual, and used pieces are fine if in good shape (preferably with the original box).

It was posted earlier (in this forum) that the deluxe room sets are being re-stocked soon. I believe it was scheduled to arrive in February or April 2006. (I remember this as I am also waiting to order two set of these for myself). fyi The post(s) I am referring to, were posted around October and I think they were lost after a hack.

As for the narrow passages sets though, I occasionally see a set on E-bay and www.nobleknight.com has a fair assortment of the individual "narrow" pieces as well.

Nobleknight seems to restock these periodically as I had bought them out of these narrow items on three separate occasions and they subsequently re-stocked them.

I hope this helps.

Where do you live, I know of two stores that each one carries one of the three items you are interested in?

I would bet for www.nobleknightgames.com. Is from where I've got all my DF Collection. Very kind people to deal with, and very good prizes. They have just now some stock in narrow passages and diagonal walls. Take a look.

Also, Dwarven Forge stuff shows up with some frequency on ebay, though the less common stuff like the Octagonal Room set rarely show up. However, just last week I saw two ogre's den sets sold on ebay. Sometimes there is even a great deal you can get on ebay.

I have been waiting for a while for NobleKnight to get a Narrow set in since all I have are individual pieces and no straight corridors.
I have not seen a narrow set there or even on eBay in quite a while.

I think if Dwarven Forge did a 1,000 set re-stock (I have heard that 1,000 is DF's minimum order quantity), they would not regret it.
They would probably sell a third of the sets within the next quarter and sales would be steady for a while after that.

Granted, I would rather see a new Sci-Fi Narrow set than restock the Fantasy one, but I really think both narrows would sell well.

Given the death of the Fantasy Narrow Passage, I don't see a lot of chance for a Sci-Fi Narrow Passage. That's a shame, really, since the Fantasy Narrow Passage set is one of the most useful sets I have, and I can only assume that its sci-fi counterpart would be just as useful if not moreso.

I was lucky to snap up a couple extras of this set when I heard it was going away, and I have not regretted it.

Jeff and Stefan, please consider bringing this set back (and making one for Sci-Fi and DoE as well).

I can't understand why people don't like the narrow passages set - it's one of my favourite sets, and probably one of my most used. I got mine off Ebay a couple of months back (after waiting ages to find one), and I think I've used at least some of it in every setup I've done since.

Oh yes, and as well as the set itself, I have four boxes of straight narrow passages - so I can do some quite long passages.

I think now that they have gone to direct sales, it might be wise for Dwarven Forge to experiment with one re-order of the Narrow Passage set.
With how long ago it came out and how few have been around for purchase in the last year or two, the Narrow Passage set might be able to be hyped like a new release set.
I do not know know of a single serious Dwarven Forge collector, who does not have at least have a good number of individual Narrow pieces, if not a Narrow set or two even.

I think the reason that the Narrow Master Maze set had the problems it had, has much more to do with retailers looking for reasons not to carry another Dwarven Forge set than it has anything to do with the idea that it was not a great set.

Think about this one fact Stefan and Jeff, some of the great builders of Dwarven Forge terrain, including IO and Tom of France, have pointed out in their postings here on the DF forums the great utility of the Narrow pieces, especially for support pieces for multi-level builds.
I would hope that would carry some weight in getting Dwarven Forge to do a re-stocking of the set.
You might even want to open this set's re-stock to pre-order in order to see if there is a real desire for the set; if the numbers are not high enough, you could always refund everyone's payments.

You might want to remember Stefan and Jeff, that on this forum, there has been only one person who I can ever remember saying they thought the Narrow pieces were worthless.
When he did so, his posting was then swamped with counter-posts filled with ideas from a good many members about how all of the Narrow pieces were extremely useful.
As a result, that person replied that he had not known of all the uses this set had and retracted his accusation.
That was only one negative comments among tens, if not hundreds, of comments about the utility of the Narrow pieces.

I think the historical and current "good" press that the Narrow Passage set has had from gamers, who use Master Maze, would encourage the re-stock of the Narrow Passage set for Fantasy and the development of such for Sci-Fi Master Maze and maybe even DoE.

Although I now have plenty of Narrow Passages myself, personally I would agree that the Narrow Passage Sets sets are amongst my most used items.

I only started collecting DF about a year ago and have been scouring for Narrow Passages at most every opportunity. It has taken me almost that entire time to find/purchase (or buy/assemble) enough pieces.

As mentioned above, I needed additional Straight Narrow Passage Pieces so badly, (beyond what I could find/purchase) that I resorted to using/gluing (multiple) parts of the Swivelling & Swinging Wall pieces together to make additional 2" long and 4" long Straight Narrow Passage pieces, -(a wall piece glued on both sides of a 2"wide floor picece is similar in width to a Narrow Passage piece)! I built a number of these, -it is not very cost-effective but it'll do in a pinch, so to speak.

I mention this for two reasons; first, as a suggestion for anyone who may need a few extra straight narrow passage pieces and secondly, to emphasize how important these pieces are to some collectors.

Thanks.

I have no problem with re-stocking the Narrow Passage Set some time in the future. It did O.K. as far as selling. I think If I posted some pictures showing all it's uses, especially multi level stuff, that it would do fine in a small quantity. I could even add some pieces from the Advanced builder set...narrow dead ends? Or some new surprises...perhaps early in 2007...
