Demon doors - yuck 1 Year, 6 Months ago  
What is up with demon doors being the next kickstarter stretch goal reward? I thought the whole point of game tiles was that they were not genre-specific, and could be used for anything from dungeons to medieval buildings to modern warehouses, etc. Everything else so far has extended the utility of the tiles by providing options for different layouts. And pillars are generic enough to be useful for any setting. But 'demon doors'??? What in the world am I going to use those for? I don't run demon-themed games, and now it looks like I'll be stuck with 5 of these doors. Or, are you going to have a policy like Reaper had with Sophie, where at the end of the kickstarter, you could substitute something else for Sophie? If I'll be able to substitute something else for the demon doors, then I drop my complaint. But otherwise, please, please rethink this and give us something more useful.

Mary Ann

P.S. Walls with windows would be nice, for using dungeon tiles as buildings.

Well, I for one am totally stoked about these doors. I can't wait to see them.

Look at the bright side... these stretch goals are all free. And this seems to be the first one that you are not happy with, after getting several that you like. All things considered, this still is an amazing kickstarter.

Re:Demon doors - yuck 1 Year, 6 Months ago  
i for one am super excited about the doors there are plenty of regular doors that come with the sets for whatever you need to do and demon doors dont necessarily mean demon themed games it could be a door to a main room in a deeper level of a dungeon or that of an entryway to a door in an evil mages tower i cant wait to see what they look like either

@mafh
JGardner has first choice to buy your doors, but if he changes his mind then I would gladly offer you some of my KS painted pieces if you decide you still don't want your Demon Doors. I'm buying three painted sets and I only want the floor pieces from the three sets. I have plenty of wall and corner pieces already.

mafh, Welcome to the Dwarven Forge forum!

I'm very puzzled that you already dislike demon doors even though you have not actually seen the final product. Stefan has already hinted that they would probably look a little like the ones already available in the wicked addition Set.

Here's a picture:



In my mind, its appearance fits in fantasy, gothic, demonic, medieval, barbaric, asian and african displays. Also, let's face it, Dwarven Forge is mostly used for D&D and demons are important for D&D, as in this very classical setup:



p.s. In these circumstance, I believe "yuck" is too strong too soon.

Welcome to the boards Mary Ann,

I know everyone has different tastes so you are more than welcome to your opinion:)
But, Thanks for posting here because now as you can see, there are many happy collectors willing to trade you for the free doors you got, and so everyone can be happy, that's what is great about our forum...lets all keep it civil, we are all of the same gaming ilk....

Once again, Welcome, we are happy to have you with us!

I am open to anything at this point because I am a newbie and own nothing yet. I figure I bought the core sets with my pledge and anything Stefan sends me for free is just bonus.

I do admit I would love to see a picture more out of curiosity than anything else.

I have to admit demon doors hold 0 interest for me either, but I figure I can swap them with someone for something else I might want. I am new to DF so there is a lot I want that is either out of stock or discontinued. :-) I'm sure someone will want these demon doors!

All - I created a trade room topic to try to consolidate these types of situations. It can be found at:

www.dwarvenforge.com/forum?func=view&catid=517&id=51108

Suggestion - list what you would be willing to trade along with what you are looking for. this way others can follow your lead and hopefull you can work out trades to optimize your mix of game tiles.
