Added some permanent scatter terrain bitz to the modular dungeon tiles. Funny what a few barrels, chests, rubble piles, broken boxes, and scattered weapons will do to smarten a place up.

Thanks for looking. As always, there's more at:

Oh, yeah, right. "Crates" and "chests" and "barrels." They all look so inviting to go over and check for goodies, and then WHAM, you're mimic-food! This ain't my first dungeon rodeo, pal. I can see your little DM smirk, right now. Bet that bit of floor is a trapper, and that ceiling is a lurker, and that "stalactite" is just waiting to drop and pin me. Not gonna fall for that. Not me. I'm just gonna go over here, sit on this stump, and pet this cute little bunnAAEEEEE!!!

Just be sure you've got your ten foot pole.

Looking absolutely splendid, D!

Apologies but the original post seems to have been deleted during today's upgrade. I'll reconstruct it ASAP. Thanks.

Rubble scatter terrain would be another possibility, since most dungeons are pretty run-down.

Rubble piles… I'll get on that next. Thanks.
The partial tiles along the walls leave plenty of room for scenic bits without blocking the passages or interfering with ease of play.

Looks like an excellent set-up to me.

Thanks, Catavar. It's the small scale details that make it pop and a couple rubble piles should be easy.

I bought another set of book cases for the library too, plus a set of those plastic dungeon doors from Mantic.

I plan on creating separate end-caps to plug some of the open places/spaces, and the doorways can mark spawning entrances for enemies.

Excellent work!

UPDATE: purchased a set of Mantic's plastic doors to make end-caps for open tile spaces.

Fast and dirty but they work.

Nice! Great job for "fast and dirty"!

fyi, For mimics and other terrain, Galladoria Games has a mimic set that is also useful for general terrain. They'll have another mimic KS later this year.

Ooooh, thanks. Nice set.

I need to get stuff like this. Who makes what and where?
