I’m going to preface this post by saying that my job is rad. I cannot thank you all enough for letting me do this shit.
So a while back I mentioned the Dwarven Forge. They make some really cool 3D terrain for table top games and I was curious about how it worked. Well the Dwarven Forge guys saw it and actually sent me a set to try out. It showed up yesterday which was perfect since Monday is our game night. I was able to use what they sent me to construct the first two encounters of the night and my players loved it.
The first thing I noticed when I cracked the box open was just how heavy the individual pieces are. I had imagined them sliding all around the table as people move their minis but they don’t. not only do they have enough heft to stay where you put them, but they have really classy felt bottoms.
As a DM I was impressed with how smoothly the individual pieces went together. It’s also obviousl that these sets are designed with a lot of thought given to maximizing the customization options. The different ways you could arrange all the pieces makes for a ton of possibilities.
After the game I asked everyone what they thought and they all agreed that the 3D stuff added a lot to the game. Looking at the pictures Kiko snapped I think you can see just how much fun it is to play with this kind of set up. I hit the Dwarven Forge site this morning to buy the medieval building set and a few other items but everything I wanted was sold out. I’m not sure if you guys just cleaned them out after my last post or what, but I’manxiously awaiting their restock.
Thanks again to Dwarven Forge for hooking me up. I really was impressed with the quality and how much it added to the experience. You definitely got me hooked. Also thanks again to everyone that reads PA so that I can make comics and play with awesome toys all day.
