I think a "Giants Lair" set would be cool mainly having a bunch of 4 square wide hall way pieces would do the trick.

Just an idea - you could do a pack of single floor tiles. Fiddly but VERY useful. You could do a small "fiddly floor set" as an accessory size pack. It could be made up of:

Single square floor pieces.
Half square floor pieces (two types, diagonally cut and straight cut)
Some speciality floor pieces like special runes/markings.

Like a WA set but just for the floor.

Not quite JA - the ABS2 floor tiles is missing on 1/4 of one square rather than 1 whole square as you detail above.

JackAttack,

The Ruin Set also has a couple single floor tile's....although they are slim, you could add something to the bottom to make them the right height....

And I just realized that the Insert Wall from ABS2 is exactly what I first posted, so never mind.

Although some accessories built the same way (iron wall insert, wooden barrier insert, spike wall insert) would be great to have.

Sorry. Don't have ABS yet, need to get some.

Okay, home sick, beset by orcs on every side, but here is an image for the L-shaped tile idea.


By itself, it leaves a five-foot square hole in the floor, which we can put paper or cloth underneath to simulate water or lava or acid or a bottomless chasm.

With a water (or lava or acid or whatever) square built in (or separate), we can add small square or rectangular inlets to canals, or put square or rectangular pools in dungeon floors.

The great thing about the L-shape is that you can move the missing/water square by turning the tile.

I would love to see some half size water pieces and more river/lake bank and bank corner pieces.

Also..

A standard 2"x2" floor piece with one 1"x1" square (corner) cut out -- an L-shaped floor tile.

It gives us a spot to put descending shafts, spawn points, small pools water/acid/lava, or whatever else we might think of. We could switch an L-shaped floor for a standard floor when a PC triggers a trap.

A version of this might have water attached, or lava. Or there might be a small selection of 1"x1" square pieces with different themes.
