About this project
Note: All pledges for three or more sets (Boss level or higher) now automatically receive one Giant's Den Expansion set AND one Dungeonstone Transition piece as FREE upgrades to their pledge reward...
...Affordable Dungeon Terrain.
For the past two years, Dungeonstone has been providing high-quality, hand crafted terrain that is perfectly designed for Role Playing games and now we are looking to add a new product line to our already successful Dungeonstone terrain:
Over the past few years we have received requests for many new products but none more so than for a versatile line of quality, affordable terrain pieces to simulate caverns, caves and canyons.
Designed to resemble the hard stone caves and caverns of the mountains, these tiles are the perfect terrain to simulate humanoid, ogre & Giant lairs, Dragon dens, Dwarven mines or the deep reaches of the Underdark.
We have spent considerable time in researching and developing our Cave and Cavern sets and feel that we are able to offer you a great product at an extremely affordable price.
This 23 piece set is the beginning of what we hope will become a growing and popular new product line for our company. However, as a backer of this project not only will you receive this set before it is available for retail sale but if we exceed our funding goal then we will reward your support with several Caves & Caverns themed stretch goals which will add even more value to your sets!
Here are some alternative layouts that you can build from just one set..
And these are some layouts that you can make with just two sets..
About our Products.
Dungeonstone is based out of Houston TX. where we design, develop and manufacture all of the terrain that we produce.
Our miniature terrain has been developed to be perfectly suited for role playing games such as Dungeons and Dragons with a 25mm scale of 5 feet = 1 inch.
These highly detailed models are each made from our proprietary resin, carbon and silica infused diestone composite material which provides the look, texture and durability of stone and should hold up to a lifetime of normal handling and play.
Our dungeon terrain pieces are designed to allow the GM to create the most impressive experience possible by adding a 3D landscape which has the look and feel of an actual stone environment.
And because our models are made of stone, they will easily accept and hold paint with no additional preparation required.
Although it is our intention to add these sets to our business as a new product line, they will not be made available for retail sale until after all of our Kickstarter obligations have been fulfilled.
Dungeonstone opened in February of 2011 with a line of 3D dungeon models and the goal of providing quality miniature terrain at an affordable price.
Our products have been designed and developed by myself and are hand crafted by our staff right here in Houston (never outsourced to another country). All of our materials and supplies are sourced from providers local to us here in Texas.
Over the past two years we have seen a remarkable degree of growth in both our business and sales and are now looking to take the next step in the development of our company.
Our goals with this Kickstarter are to not just acquire the funds needed to produce this new line of products but to help to insure the continued growth of our business throughout this year and into the next through the acquisition of new equipment and facilities.
If you are interested in pledging for any add-on items, then you will need to increase your total pledge manually by the amount needed to cover the amount required for the additional add-ons.
Go to the "Manage My Pledge" button on the top right. Add the cost of the Add-On packs or items that you want to your current Reward Level and then hit "continue to next step" (at the bottom of the page) and then Confirm. Your pledge amount should then reflect your new total.
We will allow you to make the selections for the specific items those extra funds are meant for once the Kickstarter is over and we send out the pledge surveys.
Note: Just as with Stretch Goal bonuses, the free Transition piece and Giant's Den Expansion upgrades to pledges of three or more sets (Boss level or higher) will either ship as painted or unpainted depending upon the pledge level which qualifies for the upgrades.
Note: Freestanding walls can be used in conjunction with standard wall and floor tiles to simulate additional corridor and wall pieces.
Our Stretch goals are items which will ultimately be released as accessory or expansion items for this new product line and have been designed to increase the play value of your Caves & Caverns Sets.
As the rewards for each stretch goal are unlocked, the item (or items) in question will be added to each and every Caves & Caverns set that you have pledged for.
This means if you pledge for one Caves & Caverns set then if we reach a specific goal then you will receive one of that reward, if you pledge for two sets, then you will receive two of that reward, etc.
Whether your stretch goal rewards are sent out painted or unpainted is determined by the specific pledge level you have requested. If you have pledged for painted sets then your rewards will be painted as well, if you pledge for unpainted sets then your stretch rewards will ship unpainted.
A 6" high, terraced stalagmite perfect for adding additional height to cavern encounters. If we reach this goal then one Spire will be added to every Caves & Caverns set that you pledge for.
This 4" long freestanding wall is a match to the walls in our standad wall tiles and can be placed anywhere in your set.
It is great for quickly adding new and interesting features to your layout. If we reach this goal then you will receive one additional freestanding wall with every Caves & Caverns set that you pledge for.
One additional wall tile plus one removable natural stone stair piece. If we reach this goal then you will receive one additional wall and one detachable stair unit with every Caves & Caverns set that you pledge for.
(Note: The Detachable stair piece is also compatible with our straight freestanding walls)
A pair of additional new freestanding stone pieces to add greater diversity and play options to your sets. If we reach this goal then you will receive one pair of these new pieces with every Caves & Caverns set that you pledge for.
One extra 4" Curved Corner Plus two Stone Vent pieces with removable fire accessories. The vents could be used in your layouts as steam vents, giant insect mounds or perhaps for something like this...
If we reach this goal then you will receive one extra Curved Corner plus a pair of these Stone vents plus two removable fire models with every Caves & Caverns set that you pledge for.
One additional 4"x4" floor tile for you to use in your Caves & Caverns layouts. If we reach this goal then you will receive one additional floor tile with every Caves & Caverns set that you pledge for.
(note: By combining this piece with the $12,500 freestanding wall it gives you the ability to effectively use the two together as an additional standard wall tile.)
One additional Angled Corner (variant). If we reach this goal then you will receive one additional angled corner (variant) with every Caves & Caverns set that you pledge for.
With the application of either a gloss finish or acrylic to the darkened, recessed area It could be used as a water feature ~or~ you could scatter a few bones around it and it can become an entrance to a monster's lair or perhaps it is an opening that leads to some other section of the cave complex.
Its purpose is entirely up to you.

Risks and challenges
The biggest risk is a potential delay in delivery if we have underestimated the time required to produce and ship our products. Production runs of this scale are something new to us and it is possible that we may encounter unforeseen obstacles which could cause us to miss some deadlines.
That being said, Dungeonstone has been in business producing 3D terrain since Feb. 2011 and because of this we have the experience needed to ensure that we should ultimately be able to fulfill our obligations and have the product out to our backers.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
