Wow!... and you said you were going to do a kickstarter for this? You'll do very well, indeed.

Griffin Tamer,

Doors are looking awesome . looking forward to your kickstarter. I hope you are able to get your dice in it as well.

Question: Can the doors be removed? are they pinned? or is the pin a part of the door cast? what will the doors be made out of? What images inspired you for the door hardware?

Great Job

Thanks guys!

Rydendragons,

Not sure about the dice, as they're the result of a different manufacturing process; but I have been meaning to trying casting some of them too. We'll see...

The doors are cast in polymer resin. Each unit has four pieces-- arch, base, and two doors; the arch locks into the base and holds the doors in place (each door has a hinge pin up and down), so the doors can swing freely, but aren't removable. It's a similar design to the standard DF Game Tiles doors. In theory one could not glue the arch to the base, but it's not really designed to be put together / taken apart again and again; the fit is pretty tight.

For inspiration I looked at a lot of medieval door images (Google searches and so forth), then came up with a style for each based on these but aiming for something a little unique. The ornate, vine-like hinges are partly based on a suggestion made by my fiancée (who's got a good eye for design). The hinges with the lion face pull rings I wanted to look handsome but also potentially menacing, with the sharp corners on the hinges and the vaguely shark-jaw curves; I'll probably paint up a few where the lion faces have gleaming red eyes.

I just ran an adventure today where the lion doors were the entrance to the final treasure chamber; the lions began "sleeping," eyes shut, and the characters had to fulfill certain requirements before they'd "wake" and open to reveal the keyhole.

These doors look great, well done!

I've just cut up some of my single doors to make a double door which I've just posted on the mod forum. They certainly aren't as good as some of the ones posted here but I'm happy with them for the moment.

Hi jimibones83,

Well, I don't have a specific date yet, but soon. I'm nearly ready, but I still have some sculpting to do to round out the offerings and make sure I have some interesting stretch goals. Also I'd rather not run simultaneous to the upcoming DF Caverns Kickstarter-- don't want to step on any toes here. But I definitely want to get rolling, so one way or the other it'll happen this spring.

Probably early April. A good use for early tax refunds!

The good news is that, for the early pledgers at least, I should be able to get the pieces out pretty quickly. Since these will all be made here in my home workshop, there won't be any need to deal with oversees shipping, production schedules, etc.; it'll all be straight from me to you.

Thanks for the continued interest!
