About

What Is This?

As a long time roleplayer, one thing I've always enjoyed is visualising the adventure.  Drawing maps on a whiteboard or using Roll20 served their purpose, but there was always something missing  for me.  I wanted to see the rooms and passageways, not just flat lines on a board or screen.  

I'd seen several 3D solutions over the years, plaster dungeons, resin dungeons, even papier mache dungeons.  

With 3D printers becoming more affordable and accessible, I started looking into what was available for home printing.  There were so many amazing designs out there for tiles, walls, props, you name it. I tried several of them.  Interlocking pieces, stackable pieces, but none of them ticked all the boxes for me.  I wanted something that was modular, compact, durable, doesn't fall over when Gavin knocks the table, and most importantly, quick and cheap to make.

I started dabbling with 3D modelling just to see if I could create anything halfway decent, and after a few prototypes and misfires, I came to my final design, which I call Dungeon Pegs.

Maps are built directly onto the Dungeon Pegs board, slotting into the holes.  Each board is double sided, one side textured to match the theme (castle, cavern etc), and the other blank.  Boards come in several sizes and configurations, and can be clipped together securely and easily.  The grid is sized at just over 1" to accomodate standard 28mm miniatures, taking into account the wall placement.

The core set contains the Dungeon Pegs boards, 4 wall types, basic, left, right and corner,  all in the Castle theme.

 The walls are designed so that no matter where in the Dungeon Pegs board they slot, another will be able to slot in next to it with no overlaps or gaps between walls.  Each wall is 1 1/4" high, and has slots in the top and front to stack wall segments or to add props, such as wall sconces, traps etc.

Each piece in the dungeon pegs range is designed to print quickly and without the need for support material, and will be compatible with all future releases.

Risks and challenges

Delivery dates on physical rewards are based on printing time. Although several pieces can be printed at once, I am working on a single printer at home. If demand is unexpectedly high, I would invest in additional printers to keep as close to the estimated delivery as possible.
