additional possibilities


this chap is really just part of a quick feasibility study- he's not perfect, but I quite like him.

starting work

I've decided to make the first set of tiles a free download that will allow you to construct a particular dungeon layout, with all the doors and furniture necessary to furnish it fully, while also being configurable in infinite other layouts too. Things like bedrolls and tables and latrines will be separate cutouts, so a you can easily change your bathroom into a pantry at a moment's notice! Here's a sneak peak of how it might look. I'm also trying to think of a good name for the dungeon....

entering the dungeon...

I first posted about this project on my other general wargaming hobby blog, The Sword in the Sprue. I also posted about it on DM Scotty's Crafts N'Games page on Facebook where it had a surprisingly enthusiastic reception.

DM Scotty's group (founded by the eponymous YouTube D&D crafter, the genial genius Scotty McFarland of theDMsCraft) is always packed full of incredible hand-crafted D&D terrain made by some of the most resourceful and creative people you could imagine. I thought my very simple pen-and-cereal-packet creation would be politely ignored as rather uninteresting. To my delight I got a lot of interest, particularly from people who wanted to download their own version to print and play with- so that's what I'm going to do!

I want to do this properly, so I'm going to be looking at what others have created, and what people might find useful, and look at ways I can make a dungeon tile set easy to use and work with, and aim to have something for people to download within a few weeks. I'll keep you updated with progress as and when I can!
