Dwarven Forge Caverns Kickstarter

March 12th - via:
Dwarven Forge has launched another Kickstarter project, this time for a cavern tileset. As before, the tiles will be made from ‘Dwarvenite,’ a relatively light weight and durable plastic material. I’m very pleased with the dungeon tileset I backed last year, so I’m already backing this project to the tune of nearly $300. Probably more than I should spend, but I figure it’s cheaper in the long run to get them through the Kickstarter than to buy them after the fact. Or that’s what I tell myself, anyways. (Read More)
