for new cavern stuff i suggest the following:

- cavernous stairs (diffrent design from the one in the Lake Expansion Set)
- free standing straight wall (alternate design from River set)
- free standing corner wall (alternate design from River set)
- free standing wall with arch (like the one from LES, but without Skulls)
- 4"x4" cavernous floor with water pool
- 4"x4" raised cavernous floor (1" high to break up the fat floor)
- 4"x4" cavernous floor with lava pool
- free standing stalagmite cluster (a big one maybe 2" x 2")
- caverous column
- cavernous rock formation (2" x 2", 1" high)

all these would be usable for players that only own the cavern set, i would
definatly not include any water parts that need River/Lake Set.

How about a 4x6 cavernous floor with a chasm running through it, like the one for the MM series found in the Fantasy Floor set?

How about a River piece that represents the start of a waterway? Bubbling out of a spring in the floor, or streaming out of a hole in a wall. (The floor is probably more versatile, as it can also represent the end of a waterway where the water is flowing through a concealed drain.)

Stefan,


Tar pit 4x4
Lava pit 4x4
different free standing walls is nice
lava pieces similar to a few of the river pieces (dead end lava) 4x4
big stalagmites as you say
4x4 nest piece for like a black dragon or something similar
4x4 "scattered camp lair" something like what golem would have used in the hobbit to sleep
Camp fire piece with removable fire piece similar to the fire piece in the DOE room set this can be a 2x2 piece with the camp fire in the middle
web stuff somehow
A 6x2 or 4x2 passage piece that changes elevation from ground level to 1 inch height. 2 of these would be nice as it would allow us to change height levels
a few doors. I like the stone rolling door, dwarven door, rune door etc.
cavern trap of your choice

I was watching this show on the History Channel "Cities of the Underworld" and the episode on Cappadocia had some pretty rough hewn tunnels with some great "doors". Big circular stones that could be rolled into place to seal a roon off from the tunnel. I'd like to see some of the "doors" people want but more Caverney...
I've actually been through several of these underground cities (and videoed them extensively) and they are awesome. I've seen these "doors" of stones - with arrow slits for defenders to rain down upon any attemptng ingress - really D & D like! Also ramps, stairways and verticle shafts with toeholds carved into them that connected mutiple floors. I had a few stomach churning moments climibing up and down levels where i had no idea how far it was to (nor could I see even with a high powered flashlight) the bottom below. One underground city had 4-5 levels excavated out of 9 from the original and it extended 1/4 mile in each direction - quite impressive. If any of us were to get together off-line someday I would be happy to show my extenisve videos of various places in Cappadocia that I think folks here would enjoy. All were done with guides - but some were quite a bit less commerical then others - in one case our guides were children who spoke no English (they kept gabbering to us in Italian - because it wasn't Turkish and we obviously didn;t understand Turkish - so Italian was the next best thing to English - lol), Once we even stayed in a "cave hotel" that was really quite awesome. Besides the impressive architecture the hospitality was incredible and the food was the very best I have ever had in Turkey - and that is saying something. Check it out - www.gamirasu.com/?mod=mainpage&langnew=en

I've actually done quite a bit of very instense off the beaten path archeological touring in Anatolia - including touring the ancient Hitite capitol of Hattusha (spelled wrong I bet0 - with some incredible fortifications and ruins and the last remaining copy of the "green stone" that was used by Egypt and the Hitites to seal the peace treaty of kadesh in 12 something BC - the first recoreded peace treaty in history - it was just sitting out in what once was the palace - we sat on it and even did a little "superman" skit (that we videod) where we pretended that the stone was kyrptonite (of course cupious wine consumption on site helped us to make it real etc) lol

Here is another very cool place we stayed in Capadocia (and I did a promo video for the place with the owner...)

www.oldgreekhouse.com/

Their food was just awesome as well - both places are highly recommmended for anyone stayong in the Cappadocia region - very special.

I wonder if there will be any of the odd-sized (possibly taller than 2") pieces being planned for this upcoming Cavern set.

I recall it being discussed (somewhat favorably) a fair bit, some time ago.

It would be excellent if there actually were going to be one or two such pieces. That would really mix-up the appearanace/look of the existing cavern sets.

Any hints, or is it still too early for such details?

Thanks.

Actually, a round cavern door with an indentation for a movable boulder might be really neat.

Or, if the door is a rolling disc set in a groove, there might be interchangeable doors -- stone, iron, crystalline, etc. There is no reason that the residents of a cavern might not make a couple of improvements, including a door they can seal against intruders.

I see this as a double-width piece -- half devoted to the doorway, and half to the section where the barrier rolls aside.
