Come on guys make some sewers! I know there are many, many, DF collectors (nuts?) out there salivating for sewers and Dwarvenite seem to be the ideal medium.

As for the idea of sewers, underground dirt passages, and mines (see other post about mines/dirt passages) I'm guessing there wouldn't be a top to the DF passages but obviously curved walls? I'm in for a couple sets of sewers.

Ah-HA!! Let the pestering begin!

The problem with curved walls (curving inward as they rise, implying an arched or vaulted ceiling) is that they interfere with large/tall miniatures, and they might restrict sight lines over the top edge of the pieces.

A continuous curve at the bottom, however, might also imply a curve above the top of the actual wall. If it only took up the partial squares that many DFers don't use anyway, we wouldn't actually lose any working space on the floor. However, it would absolutely require an outside/convex corner/curved wall piece (a 4"x4" L-shape), as the gap becomes unacceptable.

As for passages, are they actually necessary? Two straight walls placed together with the walls separated and parallel will be two flat squares wide, plus two curves at the edges. Or, you can put a water tile between them, leaving a one square wide ledge. Or, you can put down a piece of cloth or a printed background or a battle mat (also a one square wide ledge, unless you add floor tiles).

Glad to hear you are continuing with resin based lines. A sewer project sounds like one I would be interested in. Let us know when it gets closer to production?

In the meantime to simulate a sewer set,
Get a large piece of glass. An old storm door glass or shower door glass should be about right sized.
Paint one side of it dark greenish brown. Darker the better.
Put the painted side down on your table, setup your game tiles on the unpainted side, where ever there is no floor will look like open water. A line of wall pieces will look like a sewer with a walkway. Backs of walls facing each other will look like a section with no walkway.
Enjoy.

I've always liked the idea of a half size water tile. Flanked by wall sections, it would make a decent sewer setup. Add in the niche/culvert from the advanced builder set and you would have a good start. Throw in some sewer specific pieces and Bob's your uncle.

Honestly, I've thought about it, and it would be super easy to do Dwarvenite Sewers, with only 5 additional pieces. We don't need specialized pieces with curved walls.

Here is a map, with the "sewer" pieces missing. I've used windows to represent sewer pipes. (A) It's just a straight line of sewer, with 5' on either side, leading to a cesspool.

www.dwarvenforge.com/mapmaker/shared?mapId=5b108f4254417d62b0677f75b71ecf96555af254

This could all be done with the standard Dungeon Tiles set.

I'm using pics of current Caverns Lake and Rivers pieces to illustrate my point.



I'd make "A" just Straight Wall pieces with a pipe coming out.
The floor edges on the rest of the pieces would simply be dungeon stones, not cavern floors.

5 Pieces and you can add turning your Dungeon Tiles into a Sewer, along with Dungeon, Castle, Keep, Inn, Barracks, etc...
