Yet another frantic hunt 7 Years, 8 Months ago  
Man, lately I seem to be full of "I almost lost..." stories.

As I've been putting my towns together, I've occasionally wanted to use the new diagonal MBS wall, and I haven't been able to place it on the exterior of a building facing any dungeon elements, because I didn't have my dungeon diagonal floor pieces handy.

And I got to thinking "Say, where ARE those pieces?" I only ever had two of them, because I only bought one fantasy starter set. (note to DF: PLEASE release the diagonal wall and floor pieces in some other set, because those of us with old collections have HUNDREDS of basic dungeon elements and don't want to pay $50 for four small pieces!!!)

So I looked in my DF bins. Nuthin'. Looked on the shelf where my most-used pieces are. Nuthin'. Took out old DF boxes from the move - found some neat ABS stuff I hadn't seen in over a year, and the two diagonal WALLS, but no floors. Looked in the basement -- found my old DoE box, and my Lake Set box (forgot, already, how small that one was!) Nuthin' else.

Finally -- after turning the whole place upside-down -- I found one sad little Fantasy Floor Set box, mostly empty, with just one little pentagram piece, and my two diagonal floor pieces.

Yay!

So be on the lookout in the near future for layouts made with both dungeon and MBS elements, and diagonal walls! :D

L,

I know what you mean. When I was posting my display for the contest I could not find my book of evil. I looked in my box which I had thought i had not removed anything. I could not find it. I then looked in my odds and sods pieces. Again no luck. I looked in my coins, treasures, etc box, nothing. I paniced. I was just about to give up when there it was on the shelf in a plastic bag next to the sugar in the pantry. How the bleep did it get there I do not know. But I found it.

I have the 25 Diagonal Wall set, but that was before they had diagonal floor sections to complete them (as they do for the MBS Expansion Set). I'd love to get some.

As for finding stuff, I know that feeling. We moved over a year ago, and there are things I've yet to find (my BKT patrol machete, and my Beeman P1 .20 caliber). Fortunately, all my Master Maze made the move with flying colors (gotta love those foam-lined boxes).

But I do occasionally misplace a piece or two. Sometimes my cats "help" me misplace them. All fear the mighty Cat-thulhu!

All,

I just was looking around the store adn found a set of 8 diagonal floor pieces.

www.dwarvenforge.com/store/product.php?productid=16390&cat=267&page=1

It goes for 8 dollars. Possibly on your next preorder add one of these bad boys. I know I will.
