I really think it should be more focused on things like:
Multiple sculpts of walls, floors, dead end/alcove, natural stairway, etc
Free Standing walls, stalagmites, rock formations, etc.
Sculpted shorelines for shores & chasms, etc


I agree this should be the focused. But what extras would you like once the KS breaks 3 million?

I just thought about mushrooms as a past 3 million add-on.

Any one like giant mushrooms in their caverns?

Well, I think the future KS will be quite different. I'm sure it will have a higher funding goal that the Dungeon Tiles $50,000. Remember, the Dungeon Tiles base sets really only had 4 unique pieces. The Caverns base set will certainly require more unique pieces than that. I don't think it matters if the funding goal is $100,000 or $200,000 - whatever it is, I'm sure funding will be reached the very first day. Perhaps an unpainted set may cost $100 instead of $65? I don't know. But since this project will inherently need more unique tile molds, the KS may need to end up making $3 million to be equivalent (in terms of success) to the $1.9 million in Dungeon Tiles?

These numbers are ballpark, but this is close to what was produced in the original kickstarter, somewhere in the neighborhood of 40 molds.
~(6x) Wall pieces
~(4x) Floor pieces
~(9x) Door pieces
~(18x) Stairs / Accessories / free standing walls

Now, these pictures aren't perfect, just trying to convey an idea:

~(12x) cutting 4x4 pieces into 2x2 walls


~(25x) variety of accessories


Maybe you'll need at least ~(4x) different floors, ~(4x) several different shore pieces (straight, curved, etc), I haven't even listed chopped up pieces from the passages...


I'm just saying I wouldn't underestimate how many molds need to be made to make a nice set of Caverns, without going into pieces with niche appeal.

OK

I will take it you have no interest in any add-ons or cavern decor.

Since I expect the caverns KS to be even bigger than the dungeon KS. I am hoping that by the end, once we have blown past 3 million we will have lots of cavern pieces and free standing walls and river/chasm pieces, so I though what about extra add on pieces (like the dungeon dressing pack). What would be in that?

Of course if they had not all ready been done stalagmites and columns would be shoe ins. And crystals have been mentioned many times also.

But what else is needed to make a fantasy cavern look lived in.

What dressing would you want for your caverns?





P.S. Yeah I know I am being repetitive.

I suppose if everything listed above was covered, including dressing like stand alone stalagmites, rock formations, and things like that... I'll agree with the previous posters that stand alone groupings of fungus/mushrooms/etc would be #1 most useful.

Also, I wouldn't be surprised if some of the things mentioned above would be "Add-On" packs. ie: Shore pieces Add-On, etc.

I imagine Game Tiles can be cast in just about any color PVC/Dwarvenite. The Dungeon Gray was an obvious choice for the Dungeon Tiles base infused color. But I think another color might work better for the Caverns tiles?

What color do you think should the unpainted tiles be? Beige?

I was thinking a greenish-brown, similar to

I would go with the color of lime stone caves. If for no other reason that they are the most common type of caves and caverns in our world and also the longest and deepest caves in our world are limestone caves.

This color is also light enough that DF or people on their own could paint them to be ice caves.

Concerning color, my first thoughts are to cast them in a color that will be best for matching the resin caverns as they will be compatible and should be able to blend in perfectly with the larger resin caverns....but we could maybe (maybe) offer a different choice of color for those who just don't plan to paint them?

That is an awesome toy! What's that from? It seems like it's from Masters of the Universe, maybe?

In standard internet fashion I will total ignore you saying "maybe (maybe)" and take that you said "we will offer unpainted caverns in limestone, ice and lava stone colors" ;)
