No timetables, no demands, just ideas.


I love the the MBS Straight Wall with Candles, and I miss the Fantasy Straight Wall with Torch. I like the idea of an expansion for Fantasy MM that is all Straight Walls with [something], perhaps a mini-set like Fantasy Floors (one of each piece) or a larger set like Wicked Additions (two of each piece). Straight walls with [accessories] will break up a blank wall and give a room character and/or purpose. Possibilities include:


Straight Wall with Torch needs to come back. The torch can illuminate an area, it can be a lever for a secret door or a trap, it can be an early warning about a gas trap (why is the flame turning blue?), and so on.

Straight Wall with Lantern. Might just illuminate, but might also reveal certain types of disguised creature, or penetrate illusions.

Straight Wall with Lion Head (or whatever strikes Stefan's fancy). This can be a decoration, or a marker, or a Magic Mouth, or a nozzle for fire traps, or a spout for water traps, or an alarm that roars when the party enters the room, or all sorts of things.

Straight Wall with Basin. Similar to the alcoves, but no recess. Basin could be water, poison, potion, or scrying site. Might also stand in for a small shrine.

Straight Wall with Shield. Very common decorative motif, and one I'd bet a lot of buyers will customize. A shield could also be a marker, or a mechanism (strike the shield hard enough and something happens).

Straight Wall with Tapestry. Also a very common and customizable decorative motif. If the face of the tapestry is smooth (and blank) then we could put 1"x0.5" stickers on the piece to make any tapestry we want.

Straight Wall with Manacles. For prison cells and torture chambers and slave pits.

Straight Wall with Window. For castles, palaces, temples, fortresses, etc.

Straight Wall with Breach. Take the Straight Wall with Secret Door piece, remove the door, and add a few scattered stones to the floor. This shows a place where something (possibly that 18/99 STR fighter) broke through the stone wall.

Straight Wall with Shelf. A place to put urns or scrolls or other goodies. Would also go nicely in any sort of storeroom.


What are y'all's ideas for Straight Wall with... ?

I believe the ABS 2 has wall pieces with windows.

I love this idea. But not just straight walls but corners as well. You could have a corner filled will barrels, crates, and sacs to make an instant shop, storeroom, warehouse. Corner/wall pieces with an alchemist laboratory, or a wizards/sages/library codex, scroll, book shelves. Wall/corner pieces with reflectory, or a stone altar. Wall piece with runes written on it.

Anyways those are some ideas that probably have been said here before, but you asked for my 2 cp.

Yeah, and unfortunately, I have to say those are my least favorite pieces in ABS2. They're just kinda bland. That basic design worked for MBS, because it fit in with the architecture -- but it doesn't work for me for dungeon stuff. Dungeon stuff should either be cruder, with flagstone instead of straight, smooth borders -- or more ornate, with decorative elements and baroque touches, etc. As it is.. they're nice, but they don't feel like they're going to get much use from me.

Walls with vines, ivy, or other invading growth would be sweet. Although, they would probably fit better in ROTA.

Sandy!

You KNEW I was going to say that - WHY did you bother to ask?

But it's a good idea, anyway.
