This is a really cool set and I will definately buy some. I like the
limited piece but when I saw the ladders I was kind of hoping for some kind
of old broken down bridge or something. I will probably get three sets
because I know I would end up buying the nest anyhow so I might as well
get it for free.

I can alreadt envision building a two story castle with most of
the upper level crumbled. I can't wait to make a ruined rounded
tower with this set. I think the broken floor pieces are great
because you can really increase the size of your layout without
using too many pieces. It also lets you provide the illusion of
a higher level without wasting pieces to actually make it
two stories. Great job on the set.

One other thing I like with the new pics is how it shows differet set ups with just one set.

Very, very nice! Something we've all been wanting to see, and done with the now-expected level of panache and flair. I love the continued emphasis on modularity, making even ruined pieces themselves configureable in all sorts of variations. The ladder is a great touch, I only wish there were more scaffolding-like elements to flush out that aesthetic.

Probably the best thing about this set is how useful it will be with regular dungeon stuff. It works on its own to make a completely ruined environment, but it would also look awesome as a kind of "fraying" of regular dungeons...

I have to admit, I'm not super-wild about the nest. It's neat and all, but there's something about it that seems... a bit incomplete, maybe? It's a neat piece, don't get me wrong -- but I'm comfortable waiting for it to be sold singly. It's not my favorite aspect of this set, which is a surprise to me. The ruined entrance to ROTA, and of course the specially painted mosaic, were both highpoints of ROTA. And I loved the shutters for MBS and the lizardmen swimmers for the water series. This time, most of my favorite elements of the set don't include the special premium piece.

Really looking forward to seeing how people use these.

Versatile. Beautiful. Compatible with the loads of classic dungeon I already possess.

What's not to like? And the bonus piece is neat as well.

Sold. I'll take three, please.

Great work!

This looks absolutely incredible. One question about the freebie. When you say the first month, do you mean one month from the day they become available in August, or just until the end of August?

There will be no pre-order for this set. When it arrives in August we will open up the set on the website and you can order. If you order three sets in the first month (in one order) we will include a free Monster Nest piece.

The Monster Nest piece will also be available for sale 6 months after the Ruins Set comes out -- which should be in Feb. 2011.

Looks really good. But I do have a couple of questions. It says if you order 3 in the first month you get a monster nest. Is this if you order in the first month its availble or pre order? Also, will the monster nest be availble after pre orders like the ruined entrence was?
