Wow, great setup,, it is truly awsome what you did with only a 1 set of each that you mentioned. It just goes to show us what amazing setups can be made.imagine the size of this with just two of each.. looks like alot of great areas to explore.
GAME ON

That boat is actually an old Pewter salt boat that I bought from ebay. It is shaped like a Viking boat and looks more '20 mm' than 25mm, but it has a certain look to it.
It also means that only 2 of the party can go in it at once..
(I am a mean DM and like to split the party up!)

Thanks for all the feedback.

Here is another video that shows another part to this dungeon idea.
>>When the adventurers find the 'altar' there are items on it. If anyone picks up the ceremonial & clearly perfectly preserved dagger. That person and anyone who is within a 20 foot radius will be teleported to the 'Hellscape' cavern.

Those people will be faced with a fire demon of sorts.
Now - this demon is trapped. He gets very few visitors. The party if they are folly some will probably fight - But the demon wants to be free'd. To this end he needs that dagger sticking in the heart of the evil undead litch who owns it...

At the same time a 10 turn counter begins. The corpse in the coffin will slowly re-animate and become a (initially weak) litch. He will want to secure his dagger, but can not immediately teleport and get it back.

Again - IF the party is split - in this case they have the advantage. The 10 Turns and first few rounds of the Litch are when he is vulnerable. Few HPs and few spells...

Only quick thinking adventurers will come out of this unscathed and with all their levels !!

The Litch will try to Paralyze / level drain rather than kill immediately. He has many more uses for a living humanoid in his mind for later. He will however try to kill if he feels like he is threatened / loosing.

The fire demon can summon several lesser demons if any fight ensues.
Any 'wise cleric' will be casting 'Bless', summoning water etc to help 'cool the situation' down.

Before either defeat or victory - The fire demon will try to make a deal..
He wants to be free'd.
He will probably want to keep one of the party members as 'hostage'.
(Or at the very least something 'so valuable' that he is ensured their return. Spell books / treasure / etc)

Very nice. Its nice to see what can be done with various combinations of sets. We see a lot of photos with lovely layouts, but often its hard to tell what and how many went into making it.

I like the mix you have made here, of open and tight areas. Each are is nicely linked and it gives the players lots of options to be creative.

I don't have a lake set yet, but do have a few cavern and passage sets and two of the river sets. But not had a chance to get these out yet for the players. But my new pathfinder group will almost certainly be seeing those. :)

I really like the boat too. Looks nice. And following on from the recent boat thread, where did that one come from?

Thanks for posting too. Much appreciated the video. I really need to get one of these camera thingy's..

Very nice! I like how you used the stalagtite piece to transition from the big chamber to a corridor.
Where did you get the cool looking boat and mushroom? Good props like those always add a nice touch.

Cavernous Dungeon with Underground Lake and River.

Post by dandare » Tue May 29, 2012 9:41 pm

Here is a quick picture of a Dungeon I made using four DF sets:
1 x Cavernous Lake set
1 x Cavernous River and Walls set
1 x Cavernous corridors set
1 x Cavern set



Here is a video I made of my quick 'dungeon' idea.

Hope you like it. All feedback is welcome.

Cheers,
Dan.
