Normal Forgotten Temple/Syssul Shrine pieces.
I went and got the Jade Forgotten Temple set and 8 extra Jade pillars plus the Marble mega set. because it was stated they would not be available in the store.

I'll probably round out what I passed up in the DoD. Eldritch pools, possible more dais pieces, LED alcoves - just bits and bobs. I'm undecided as to the bridge. May pick it up just bc I wouldn't want to NOT have it - but it's a large piece I don't see myself using that often.

Mostly I may just get more starter dungeon sets - I like the idea of bulking up to build just regular larger rooms. With all the traps and temple pieces and elevation bits I'll end up with, I like the idea of spreading them out over more area instead of making a Tomb of Horrors build where every room is crammed full of zany death.

As for caverns - given what DF usually pulls off, I'd probably be tempted, but in the abstract I'm not interested. I love the resin caverns and the ks ones don't really do it for me. The paint job is part of it - it's too "busy" and a large cavern just looks like a static blur to me, not nearly as nice as a large resin cavern. In people's home painted stuff, it looks much better. But I also don't like the footprint. It's too rigid - now that DF has gotten used to doing 4x4 tiles maybe they'll return to the original cavern footprint. Finally, though, I just don't like the sculpts as much. The resin stuff, it has stalagmites and stalactites in the walls, it has layers of rock. I was just in Carlsbad Caverns, and the resin caverns look JUST LIKE the real thing. But the ks ones don't have that - they're just rough walls. And they don't feel as "cavern"-like to me.

If DF can expand ks caverns with something that looks like the resin ones - boom. I'd be delighted. But if it's just more of what we have.... I'd show my support as always but I wouldn't be super psyched for it.

I bought part 2 of the Lava Bridge encounter, but I'd really like to get the rest of the encounter. I'm also seriously intrigued by the Khri Colony and have a really interesting idea to use them in a dungeon build. In particular, rather than one huge colony, I'm thinking about using it as a series of burrows connecting different parts of the dungeon. Sort of a Pompeii-style city buried in volcanic ash and the burrows connect the different buildings.

Another cool use idea for the burrows.

I would like a return to caverns as a secondary theme. I just want alternative sculpts, but don't need another full-blown kickstarter of caverns unless they do something different with it. I want new walls, floors, water tiles, etc. that make the layout look less blocky and more organic.
Agreed again.
I have tons of caverns, but more variety in sculpts would be fantastic.

Well, I sincerely hope nothing at all. I really think I got all the sets and stuff I really need to have.

If going for fantasy sets, then a 20 (or less) pack of the ruined (rough terrain) floors would be awesome. They are very hard to get in any numbers and I think they would look great in many KSI style builds.
I wanted a pack of these too! :(
So much yes. I'd love to have 40 or 50 rough floor tiles. Instead, I will be getting 1 in the Ledges pack. :(

Maybe a bridge and some ledges. I want to see what I can make with the KS sets before getting anything else as I don't want to cut into my KS VI budget too much.

Yes more cavern sculpts and advance builder cavern would be great.
