My point is that dwarves don't live in unfinished caverns, they live in chambers that have been cut to or lined with worked stone. If dwarves spend their lives underground, then living or working in a cavern is equivalent to camping.

A stove belongs in a kitchen. A forge doesn't belong in a natural cave.

That's very well reasoned; I would agree with that.

I beg to differ and agree! After all, we share a universal truth that within each of our Fantasy Role Playing Games we are free to present our worlds as we see fit.

Perhaps these Dwarves have not yet finished their exquisitely cut out chambers but have a need to forge tools and or weapons in the meantime.

Let your imagination decide...

Carved or natural caverns either way if I was offered a Dwarven Forge like in the Desolation Of Smaug I would FIND a place to put that thing :)

It occurred to me on my second viewing of Desolation just how far gone Thror was when Smaug ran the dwarves out of Erebor -- he was poised on the final step to casting a giant golden statue of himself!

A dwarven forge would make a nice add on room ....

maybe a few cavern walls with ore seams and
a forge (screaming for a LED mod).
Some items from the dungeon dressing; the dwarven door, pillars and basic room pieces.
Then it could fit in either, cavern or room.

Jackattack ~ You watched Desolation more than once?

...Boy was I disappointed with the Hobbit movies. After Jackson turned out such a masterpiece with the LOTR trilogy, to see these prequel/sequels reduced to such a preposterously mauled effects-fest was pretty depressing. Such beautiful world building, fine actors, etc. totally wasted, when it could have been so good if he'd had a little restraint, and a little more respect for the original...

But, I'd certainly be pleased if the KS includes a dwarven forge on a saner scale.

As the original poster of this thread, I think I speak for everyone here when I say that I hope the "semi-official" updates become "official" updates soon!

:D

Thanks for keeping us sane by providing pics and info, Stefan! I'm glad you're starting to feel better.

These look so amazing! Holy cow, holding back on my games budget for this is going to be totally worth it. Plus, getting a red envelop for Vietnamese new years helps too lol.

I was thikning of holding back a little on this kickstarter but after seeing those previews...just wow.

Rest well Stephan and feel better soon! A little delay in starting the KS just means more money saved up for it when it gets going!

I agree, hobbit was nothing like LoTR. The orcs and goblins were pretty cool but the movie didn't compare to the LotR trilogy
