Hmm. DF did have dungeon accessories and a freestanding wall in its first KS. I'm also seeing a freestanding cavern in its catalog.


I actually find battlemaps useful to use with tiles. I saw a rather nice one on a KS many months ago. Wonder whatever happened to it!

These are always easy for me to avoid.  I don't want tiles.  All I would ever back for are accessories that I can place on a battle map.  So fortunately my wallet is safe .... at least with this KS.


I have role/roll played many ways over the many years, (no minis or maps, just maps,  minis on a table, minis on a mat, minis on a mat with accessories, minis on full 3d terrain) all are great fun.  So I will say this to you, Keep having fun your way and try something new if you wish.


I have suggested to DF in the past that they should sell packs of just accessories to get the business of the accessory only crowd and that they should sell floor only packs to get the business of the floor only group "Wall Haters ;)   "  Perhaps they will someday but it is not really their focus so I don't really expect them to do it.






The dwarvenforge home page shows that the official name of DF's KS5 is Dungeon of Doom!

A word from Stefan of Dwarven Forge posted on the DF forum. 

I want to add that Lady Sabelle's latest creation is remarkable! It works well for so many things...indoor and outdoor...the details are sublime:)

Nina, and Tobi and Drew and Josh, and Nate and especially Elye (Griffon Tamer) have done amazing things...we have been designing and sculpting for over 10 months!
I feel this will bring back a lot of backers...kickstarter is important because it does show our stuff to a huge public audience in a way that nothing else can. I hope we get lots of new backers this year:)
We have purposely shown very little so far...there are A LOT of sculptures...dozens and dozens and dozens...
Our purpose in the base design was to appeal to both those who already have KS1 pieces, and also to those who have none. The design needed to blend with the KS1 pieces but also be different, a little new, and something worth getting even if you have some dungeons. I hope we achieved this, we shall see:)
There will be utilitarian pieces and also extravagant decorated designs...I have been dying to show for 10 months!
Nate will kill me though, we are filming videos in the coming weeks, I am sure Nate will make them very kewl!
We are almost there!







Using the YouTube settings to force the 1080p resolution and 0.25 playback speed, you can really get a good look at some of the pieces here:

      Hi, we're Crow Land Publishing, and here's our first book, Wickerpunk. A supplement book for Dungeons and Dragons 5th Edition, with application for all fantasy and horror games, such as Pathfinder, Call Of Cthulhu and even superhero games, like Champions. It will be 275 pages.
      Folk horror – horror and supernatural fiction that relies on elements of the past, folklore, superstition, the dreadful majesty of nature, the darkest urges of old religion. And old gods. Where the landscape itself is a symbol of fear and dark majesty. 

Heroic fantasy – a dream of blades and magic, a dream of defiance of the dark powers of the world, where we can be our truest ideals of our self. 

And when these genres collide – we have Wickerpunk.  A genre in which the ancient and natural world of the Wyld meets the imperialist world of Industry.
      If you like film such as Gawain and the Green Knight, Dragonslayer and The VVitch, you'll like our book.
      If you like games such as Maiden of Sker, Greedfall, and Hellblade, you’ll like our book. 

If you like anime such as Princess Mononoke, The Ancient Magus’ Bride and Faery Gone, you’ll like our book.
      If you like TV shows such as The Witcher, Game of Thrones, (especially the White Walkers stuff!) and the classic 1980s Robin of Sherwood, you’ll like our book. 
      If you like novels such as The Mists of Avalon, The Dark Is Rising and The Broken Sword, you’ll like our book. 
      Wickerpunk is a sourcebook that instructs GMs and players alike on what wickerpunk looks like in a game of D&D or any fantasy roleplaying game.

      We have a small and short campaign live at Kickstarter.
      As the clunky title suggests, It's about a big virus, his small buddy and some masked adventurers.
      The all in level is 50 USD (60 Canadian) + postage
      Thanks for having a look!

      I barely received my last campaign pledge from Midlam that already it has something that caught my interest.
      Sisters of the Kraken Cult. The female counterparts of the previous "Onslaught of the Cult of the Kraken Lord" and "Cultists of the Kraken Lord". (I now have some regret of not getting it)

      What's also interesting is the optional add-on of fish folk.

      Brinewind is going to have some interesting neighbors.

      After the estate of one Fomo Barrowblight (who many moons ago, and with heavily laden bags, had said he was just off for a morning walk, never to return) was sold at auction, there came to light a strange scroll that appeared to be a map of the final resting place of a lost tribe of halflings.  These cousins lived down in the scorching Southlands, amidst endless dunes that had buried whole cities and civilisations.
      The newly elected (and so still very enthusiastic) Halfling Town Council had organised an expedition to make contact with their fellow halflings, with the aim of swapping some stories and recipes, and who knows, perhaps even coming back with some interesting new cakes.
      And, after many great perils and travails, the expedition found itself in a mysterious location known as 'The Valley of the Things'.  Here, recipes in strange hieroglyphs were marked on tomb walls,  guarded jealously by High Priests and long mummified pastry chefs.  
      The expedition takes time to assuage the fears of the High Priests that they are here to steal the sacred recipes and make formal diplomatic relations.  But Fomo Barrowblight and another mysterious figure seem intent on stealing the recipe to the sacred pie and have already gleaned some of the ingredients...
      To the Mummy's Tomb!
      Introducing a series of  Eight Fantasy Miniatures in 28mm scale from a halfling expedition to the burial grounds of their cousins, in the desert southlands. 
        Halfling Town Council Five
      The latest elected Halfling Town Council, has been responsible for launching the expedition to the distant Southlands, as always, it is made up of eight different townsfolk from all walks of life.
      I've already pledged for the whole set, why haven't you?

      Echoes of Camelot: Arthurian Legends is a project that will expand our 75mm resin miniature range with new and exciting models based on the Matter of Britan, particularly around the figure of King Arthur and his Knights. We have many cool surprises prepared should you help us bring this dream to life.
      These miniatures have been sculpted and painted here at the Big Child Creatives studio with the collaboration of some of the most talented miniature artists out there. And what is more, they will be manufactured by our own talented team of resin casting experts. This allows us to monitor the process closely to ensure the best quality in the market and a timely delivery.
      We have learned a lot from our previous campaigns, and we want to put all this experience to good use, repeating everything we did right, improving upon it, and correcting our past mistakes. We invite you to join us in this journey of discovery throughout the Matter of Britain and its amazing cast of unique characters.
      This campaign is a journey of discovery, full of surprises such as custom bits to make your miniatures even more striking than they already are. Some of these kits will be Kickstarter exclusive, so those of you who choose to support us will be able to proudly show it through unique miniatures, even more full of life and character than our regular releases.
