I have only two small regrets in this life; 1- that I don't have enough Dwarven Forge, and 2- that I didn't start collecting when the Ogres Den was available. So I am asking, wait no, I am pleadin' with the forces that be. Grant me, a dying man "cough, cough"(I am not really dying, just dying for an ogres den) a rendition of the Ogres Den maybe call it the Trolls den, or the Orc's Den.

I think your best bet is to watch e-Bay to see if one comes up for auction.

I agree rusty - I've been desperate for this too!

Unless of course, anyone is willing to part with one....

Yeah been doing that so far only have seen two. One got taken down from auction. The second went for almost about $160 and wasn't even complete(missing the unique treasure thingy).

Ogres Den is what I ended up shipping to Lupus Down Under for him (e-bay euction wouldn't ship to Australia)

Sometimes it takes awhile, but they do come up. Over the course of a year (2007) I managed to snag two under $80 each, but it took a lot of compulsive e-bay checking!

And many thanks for doing that too Harneloot :)

Yeah, they do come up. You guys have the luxury of being in the US........where most of the DF being off loaded are located, so its a matter of being on top of your Ebay searches.

I was lucky as the one that I got finally was on a buy it now rather than an auction :)

The ogres den is over rated. I have one and almost never use it.

I tend to agree with you philip. I almost never end up using most of the pre-designed/themed pieces in my setups.

Perhaps it is in the Ogres Den's scarcety, that that make it so sought-after.

Don't get me wrong, they are all nice-looking pieces. I just don't find that they have the versatility I require for use in most of my setups.

That being said, I personally hope that further one piece, pre-designed rooms do not become a new direction for DF.

For example: If a tower set were to be produced I would hope that it might include one-eighth various plain, (pie-shaped?) MM sections containing either door spaces, windows, a balcony, arrow slit, solid/plain walls, a piece with stairs (going down) and a stand-alone stairwell as well (with perhaps 4 spare sections for interchanging. Essentially a modular and generic set that could be changed/pieced together depending upon the design/needs of the specific tower. A smaller/thinner tower could have 1/2 the previously mentioned pieces (in quarters) as well. Alternately, the larger tower could have a hollow centre with one or two possible (optional round floor or stair sections) as well.

Going back on topic, for my uses I personally find both the modular and generic DF pieces to be far more useful.

Sorry for straying off-topic there, just my two cents worth.

Anyway, good luck to all who are looking for an Ogre's Den, hopefully you'll find more uses for yours than I have managed to.

I didn't realize the OD was in such hot demand. If anyone is looking for one, drop me a PM and I'll give out three leads of where I spotted this about a year ago. You might be able to contact them if it is still on their shelves collecting dust.

A fair question rustyblade.

When considering the personal time, effort and income implications that would be involved in arranging in such a sale, (especially being the first time) it would have far exceeded the small financial return for selling an Ogre's Den. I also have no desire to become an online retailer -in any capacity.


As for the Den itself it is a very nice-looking piece to have, I just don't find it to be a particularly functional piece.

If one considers it as a "collectable" piece however, that would definitely explain it's popularity as it is a very nicely detailed piece.


Admittedly, after considering this I am now "viewing" my Ogre's Den somewhat more favorably than I did only recently, although I still doubt that I will be able to use it any more so -as it is, and always will be the same, fixed room.


Thanks

I'm curious what particular aspects make it so limited in function. (Never even seen one in person, so genuinely asking, not trying to argue.)

Is it the lack of floor squares?
Is it the wood floor?
Is it the bearskin on the floor?
Is it the bones by the fireplace?
Is it the plaster on the walls?

Which details would need to be removed and/or corrected to make this piece more useful on a regular basis?

If DF were to make another room, what would it need to make people want to buy it?
