If you want a thread to focus on a particular idea, it helps to put that idea in the thread title. "Dwarven Themed Sets for KS-5", for example.

Even then, although it is polite to stay on topic, threads sometimes take on a life of their own and go in unpredictable directions. Years ago a "More Lava" thread wound up talking about ice themed caverns. Just roll with it.

Personally, I am not so interested in seeing the definitive dwarven forge piece. A dwarven themed line with several modular forge components and options might be fun, but I'd just as soon see those pieces match KS1 themes and textures with some dwarven themed "flavor items" on the side.

Also, woodlands and sci-fi suffered from issues that a kickstarter might address from day one. I think those sets might be revisited in high funding goal "off-season" KSes, or as add-ons/sidelines in a regular but less focused KS.
Favorite Pieces: Chasms, 45 Degree Passages, River & Lava Banks, Ledges, Large Curved Walls, Elevation Arch

hmmm...
I cant really think of anything that you couldn't use the current tiles for. Maybe a cannon or some siege equipment. Mines would be great....
Well, yes.... it is a forum for KS 5 in general.... however, I personally am trying to build support for a dwarven forge and dwarf themed stuff. The more support I can generate, the more likely it will be taken into consideration by DF staff. Also since the woodlands set and sci-fi set never really took off i doubt they will continue with those ideas...

Correction: Only you and a few hundred others have that limited set (maybe fewer if everyone bought 5 like Kachina did!). A lot of people are excluded from that "We"! ;)

Wood stuff would be more for an outpost or something in the woods. I could see that more for an Elven tree-village.

:arrow: We're talking Dwarves here, so I would [naturally] expect that stone and masonry would be the building materials of choice.

I'd like a Dwarven Forge, and Dwarven build stuff in general. Solidly team Dwarf.

We already have the Woodlands Set for the elven idea. I doubt that DF would do something like it again. As for a Dwarven Forge set, that would be very much appreciated. (At least by me!)

all for the Dwarven forge set.. would be great to have the full size bellows and coal piles, it would also be complimentary with CBS and castle as they would have had smiths.. you could connect to stables and stalls along side. it wouldn't need to be huge set perhaps the size of a tavern..

I would like to see ruins to form a significant part of KS5, would love to see a comprehensive set of ruins and damage pieces for castles, I am sure sewers, dungeons, caverns could all be greatly enhanced with ruins and rubble lots and lots of rubble.
