Does anybody know, maybe @sirgeekjeff, the current plan for delivering the sets that included the elevation platforms and bridge? Are the bridges now lining up correctly? Are the add-ons shipping out separately if you bought both? Or will add-ons be shipped when the platforms and bridges are ready? Any info would be appreciated.

I got both. I figure if I don't like the jade or the regular, I can sell the extra off at a later date.

I bought the full Jade Temple, but I agree that it contains more pieces than I need. I’ll probably be looking to swap a few jade pieces 1:1 for non-jade versions.

Yup, that's exactly what I'm doing! Had to bite the bullet and get both. Didn't get the full encounter, just got Temple add ons. Don't need the amount of duplicated pieces you get with the full encounter, precisely because I intend to sprinkle mine throughout the DoD.

The regular temple pieces, though - I kinda see them as separate but I also definitely want to build something with all of it. I'm not sure how the colors will line up but I'd like to try. I want all these traps and torches in the temple for the full Indiana Jones vibe!
As beautiful as the jade pieces work, I specifically went with the OG temple for this reason. I'm very excited to see how well they integrate with the color scheme of the normal vaulted pieces, because I plan on treating them as a way to re-theme a broader dungeon by sprinkling in with other DoD pieces rather than keeping them as a more stand-alone segment. I'm thinking of them as similar to LEDs in that swapping out a few temple walls/altars/pillars in an otherwise vaulted dungeon could give it a totally different vibe.

It's been tough fighting off the remorse for not snagging up some jade pieces during the KS, but I'm hoping that once I get them on the table the extra versatility makes up for it.

Jade and snakes all the way for us.

Maybe its out ingrained hatred for the rabbit eating B@$£@&"$ that we want to purge the slippery buggers.

I added an Inner Sanctum and Antechamber so that I could integrate some temple pieces into my regular dungeons. I couldn't resist the jade Shrine for my DoD, but I do see it as a completely separate style. I don't do much snake cult stuff in my games, but it will be great to have for that "some day" adventure.

Yea I didn't get the temple because I don't run much with snakes as a theme and I had to keep cost down but it looks gorgeous.

I mostly want the floor spike trap, flame traps, wall switch and runic floors

I keep going back and forth about how impatient I am for the rest of my order. I got so much in wave 1!

If I completely ignore the Temple - both Jade and regular - and that's a lot to ignore! - well, what am I waiting for?

- fire trap
- doom roller
- spike pit
- manacles
- other double doors
- marble large round dais
- marble straight dais
- epic stairs
- elevation tray (well, Gorgon Tiers)
- classic dungeon walls with LEDs and magnets

That's the stuff I'm waiting on that I don't already have. Between add-ons and Gorgon Tiers, there's a decent amount of stuff I'm waiting on that are just more of what I have now (I'm still excited for what I can do with more, but at least I have the pieces in hand! Still, I want to do a cross-shaped room with a double door at the bottom of the cross and the big arched wall at each of the other three ends!)

The Temple is intriguing. I see the Jade Temple as kinda like Sewers or Mountains - a whole other adjunct to the main set. I can set it aside as another thing. The regular temple pieces, though - I kinda see them as separate but I also definitely want to build something with all of it. I'm not sure how the colors will line up but I'd like to try. I want all these traps and torches in the temple for the full Indiana Jones vibe!

Not even a notice yet.
But my whole order was only $120, so it's very low on the totem pole.
Based on my experience with DF customer service I don't think amount spent would have anything to do with it. I do know they said encounters would ship first which makes sense; those are probably more self contained where the add on's have to be gathered and boxed for each order.

Really want those trap pieces!!
