I was one of the backers of Elye's awesome Griffin Tamer Kickstarter of DF-compatible accessories. Out of all of Elye's great ideas, the two I use the most by far are:

- Double Doors

- Free-standing cell walls

It sounds like Double-doors are already covered in KS5, so I'd recommend cell walls. Prisons, cells and cages seem to come up all the time in D&D adventures, so those would be super-handy if produced for the masses.

While not directly raiding to Dungeons, I would love to see Elye's KS3 Windmill and Watermill prototype Add-ons included in KS5 (https://www.facebook.com/GriffinTamerStudio/). That would be amazingly useful and cool to be able to convert our existing KS3 stuff into specialty buildings. A Bell tower pack would be great too!

Moats, moats, and more moats - that's the ticket. Moats ;-)
I'm not sure if it counts as accessories, but agreed. Moats and additional cavern water options are far and away my most wanted items.

My top priorities:
1. Tudor Advanced Builder set. I know it's not a dungeon thing, but come on, you can't leave me hanging like that.

2. All sorts of traps. LOTS of traps. Imagine the biggest number you can think of. No, more than that. No, even more than that. Actually, forget everything else on this list, just make more traps.

Other things I personally want:
-Large treasure chest (one that can actually open would be awesome)

-wooden crates (to match KS1 barrels)

-Torch sconce walls

-Tall (freestanding) torches or braziers

-Cone of flame (for trap or spell purposes)


-Dead civilians/adventurers/villains (no obvious cause of death, for maximum modularity)

-Bookshelves (empty, for maximum modularity)


-Spikes. Really big spikes. Like Mega Man style spikes. Spike floors, spike walls, spike doors.... I like spikes, okay?

Seconding ideas from previous posts:
-Skull-covered floors. Or just freestanding skull piles, I'm easy.

-Levers/switches/buttons (wall, floor, freestanding) -- gotta have some way to activate/deactivate the traps.

-Cell walls/doors (vertical metal bars), if possible in dwarvenite

-Wall with big circular hole

-Non-fancy beds

I'd love to see fireplaces and fire pits with LED glowing lights. The fireplaces could range from massive marble-ones to rough village style.

Another thing I'd like to see is either a new Chamber of Sorrows pool with an LED at the bottom and a colored insert for the liquid (different colors) or non-led colored inserts for the old Chamber of Sorrows pool.

I'm going to put in my vote for some of the ideas already mentioned (in order of desirability):
Free-standing archways
Pews and Altars
Rough sleeping cots (barrack style or crude)
Crude/rough furniture
More variations on doors and double-doors
Prison cells
Forge (with led glowing furnace)
Planning tables
More magnetic wall-hangings
Monstrous eggs
Arcane-Runes floors/walls
Mine and mine-track materials

In no particular order

A dwarvenite fantasy floor type pack
Library (books, scrolls, shelves, tables, etc...)
Wizardy stuff
Temple stuff (Pews, Altar, tapestry/wall hangings etc...)
Meeting/war room stuff (large table, comfy chairs, maps, etc...)
Dr frankenstein lab. (Alchemist/necromancer)
Vats/large cauldrons
Barracks stuff (bunk beds, chests, etc...)
Fluted columns
(Dwarven) Throne room (dias, pair of thrones, wall hangings, potted plants, braziers, etc...)
Prison/cell stuff (cots, pots, walls/rocks with chains, barred walls, etc...)
Kitchen stuff (ovens or fireplaces, food prep equip, cooking food (pig roasting, loaves of bread...), stacks of dishes, etc...)

That should be a good start...

(I'm going to copy/steal some of the stuff said above and add my 2 cents...)

A commode. Yes, for real. Humanoid monsters gotta go somewhere too
Humanoid monster bedrolls or palettes. Orcs and Bugbears sleep too and dungeon floors are cold
Bunk beds for barracks
A blue version of the Chamber of Sorrows pool. Gotta put that Water Weird someplace...
A few statues, like from a crypt or even for a fountain or for a pointing puzzle to open different doors when turned
A rope & wood bridge for elevation builds and chasms
A small rowboat for underground rivers/lakes
Dungeon scatter like urns, bags, bales, and crates
Bookcases and other magician/alchemist/evil sorcerer lair items like lab equipment, a globe, and work table, etc.
Scattered scrolls and/or books
Weapons or other magical item treasure piles
Coffins and sarcophagi
Forge items, like a bellows, anvil & hammer, cooling bucket, and the forge itself
Hay bales and other stable accessories (gotta park those adventurer horses somewhere in town.)

And please please please make a Dwarven mine set at some point!
Mine Walls and floor (Sort of like the Ainsty Gold Mine, boards and work walls, etc.)
Mine track (on floors or separate) for carts
Mine carts (maybe with lift out contents)
Monster breakthrough mine walls and floor (Xorn, Umber Hulk, ore Purple Worm encounter goodness)

A follow up on LED's


Massive Darkness will be here by August. I have been planning to run a few games with my Dwarven Forge tiles much like I do with Black Plage.
The Light sources are going to be important. A LED lanterns on a rock and a box or chest would be very useful and currently unavailable. I already have some of the LED Inn tables.


A LED card table and fire place would be nice. You already have some wall sections with LED's but no cave sections are available yet.

Well, this just from the top of my head things I've wanted for ages:

Freestanding walls with human sized circular gap with fan
Freestanding swinging Giant Axe Trap
Walls with chains
Levers/wheel switches (floor and wall)
2x2 o 4x4 floors full of skulls (crik! crak! crik!)
Walls covered with runes/frescoes (bonus points for hyeroglyphs)
Walls with reliefs (Cultists/demons/skeletons whorshipping death/demons?)
Carved columns/wall reinforcements (mourning robed ladies with hands covering their faces?)

Have to add: the walls carved with runes, frescoes, reliefs, or carved half-columns/reinforcements would be awesome if they were magnetic pieces that could be attached to half-thick magnetic/metal wall pieces.

Cell walls (Metal bars) like those in WA3
Freestanding ornate 2" archways (menacing gargoyles? Mouth shaped? skulls?)
All kind of adventurers corpses
Hatched large monstrous eggs pouring misterious goo
Magnetic frames in which we can insert little picture prints
Laboratory parafernalia (lots of cristal tubes with strange shapes and sizes
and green liquid running through!)

Would love to see some! Greetings!

I don't usually lobby for figures. Seated Inn/tavern patrons are needed badly.
Yes, a thousand times YES!

How about some torture equipment?
A commode? (sorry to start THAT again :)
A bedroll?
Adventurer remains?
Green and/or Blue version of the Chamber of Sorrows pool?
Rickety wooden bridge a la Cavernous Rivers variety?
Door Raft?
Abandoned Backpack?
Larger Urns/Floor standing clay vessels?
Wooden Coffins?
New/Different Doors?

Crappy cots. We got nice beds in KS1. Crappy cots would be appropriate for the rank and file dungeon dwellers.
A good idea. :!: I Need very fancy beds with canopies.
