"Rooms" is an idea for expansions to the Fantasy line that enhance the existing pieces without creating an entirely new line. A "Rooms" set is not necessarily a room unto itself -- it might be just a few pieces that allow the builder to add pieces to other DF sets to evoke scenes and environments not previously available.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

A classic in the sword-and-sorcery genre is the Serpent Temple. What snake cult is complete without a room crawling with snake motifs?

We'd need a 4"x4" tile piece with a snake carved into the floor in a big circle.

Add four or six columns sculpted in the classic "coiled snake" style.

To round it out, put in a doorway (with or without actual door) with a snake around the opening. This might have to be done as a standard wall piece, or even as a 2"x4" wall piece with opening similar to the Goblin Mouth.

That's six or eight pieces to create a Serpent Temple in our dungeons.

Another possibility is to add a snake pit. (There is a piece like this available from another company -- I don't remember which one -- but it isn't really stylistically compatible with DF.) This might be a pool with a 1/4" wall, the floor entirely covered with snakes (to keep it relatively smooth and level). I'm not sure whether it should be on a 2"x2" or a 4"x4" tile, though.

I also like the idea of a bookstand, table, or altar composed of one or more cobras, but that's getting into furniture.

Thoughts? Additions?

Grendel. They make a set called the "Temple of Set". It has a snake pit and a doorway with arched snakes if I recall correctly. I own it but haven't looked at it in quite awhile.

I don't know about making a whole "Snake Temple" set for DF but it would be nice to have some walls that have little curved openings or square/rectangular openings on the floor level of the wall (for something to crawl out of!).

Snake themed accessories would be fun to have.

all great ideas! I have the Grendel set and use it all the time. I also supplemented it with some Ainsty pieces. Snake based stuff is great!

I'd love to do something like that!

I'm a big fan of the movie...
