Bridges of DwarvenForge Country 3 Years, 4 Months ago  
Yeah, I know, terrible title.

However, I still think DF ought to consider creating a couple-few bridges for their lines, to go in various future sets or perhaps to go in a Bridges Set all their own.

As far as I can tell, the only span that makes any sense is 6" or more, to cross a 4" gap. That not only clears Cavernous Rivers by a comfortable margin, it also lets us put a bridge over canals/sewers created by putting Open Water tiles between standard dungeon tiles. I don't think it will clear a gap created by Cavernous Chasm pieces, but a 2" wide piece to go in the gap will support the "gap" ends of two bridges that meet in the middle.

We have a very nice wooden span for Caverns, but an additional natural stone arch might also be very cool.

A stonework bridge to go in the standard dungeon line would, as stated, go over canals/sewers. it would also work (thematically) in other lines.

A natural stone span or a callback to Den of Evil would go nicely with a future Hellscape set.

Finally, a bridge in the Realm of the Ancients style rounds rounds out the collection.

A final practical consideration is bridge width. A 1' wide bridge creates a nice bottleneck. A 2' wide bridge is like a standard passage with open air instead of walls. A 4" wide bridge might simulate a high-traffic span, and offers enough room to stage a small melee on the bridge itself.

Thoughts?

I love the bridge idea, all sort of nasty things live under bridges.

I've built bridges before using the existing pieces and some short planks for support. I'd like to see bridges done as sets of pieces that could be used to build bridges, balconies, aqueducts, ramps, platforms, etc.

Thank you, Stefan.

I just don't get this kind of validation at work. [sniffle]

It would be nice to see a (small?) set that contained a couple of large bridges and a load of smaller pieces that could be used to make walkways e.g. a load of lashed together planks of wood that have been used to make makeshift walkways/bridges.This would be good for goblin mines etc

Yes.
I've ordered his latest set + many pieces and the bridges he did are perfect to make the levels since you can use it for each set you want !
(he made also special bridges for the royal set with nice archways, for his "grange" set, tomette stairs etc etc etc)
