Game Decor has partnered with a very talented 3D artist under the banner of “DungeonWorks” and is launching this Kickstarter for a new line of high resolution 3D printer files for modular dungeons and accessories. 

There are currently 3 lines of models with a total of 11 sets in 8 uniquely themed dungeons containing over 500 models in all, planned for release.  Several more themes and expansions for each line are planned to be released afterwards.

- Classic Encounter consists of the most common and generic locations from classic settings, such as the gothic stone dungeon, the dank caverns, and the half timbered town, all of which is easily compatible among the majority of fantasy settings. 

- Vintage Vault is inspired by iconic computer based dungeon crawling role playing games where legendary settings are yours to design. 

- Lost Realms is driven by a high fantasy setting with tales of epic proportions. A wholly original setting from the mind of the artist, where each set tells its own story.

The models are designed for vertical printing to enhance the output quality of the highly detailed pieces and to maximize the number of pieces you are able to print in one run on your machine's bed.  The models have also been designed to not require the use of supports.

Classic Encounter consists of locations of classic encounters, such as the gothic stone dungeon, the dank caverns, and the half timbered town, all of which is easily compatible among the majority of fantasy settings.

 -  The iconic fantasy setting that is usable with nearly all typical RPG settings and scenarios. Full of trips, traps, and puzzles to confuse and cause mayhem to any group of adventurers. Death lurks around every corner and chaos only grows stronger the farther down you go.

 

- Adding more diverse and unique pieces to enhance the style of your dungeon. This set of 30 models includes secret walls, alcoves, archways, windows, decorative pieces, various types of stairs, as well as pieces that add height and the ability for a multi-level environment.

 

- The dungeon has just gotten deadlier with this set of traps, tricks, and poisoned tips. There are surprise doors of spikey death, giant blades of carnage, things that smash, and things that bash. This set includes 36 models for your party maiming pleasure.

 

- Even more ways to kill your friends for fun and/or profit. You can crush, smush, slice, dice, burn, churn, grind, and blind the party with these additional 31 models. Your gelatinous cube will be busy cleaning up the dungeon for months to come.

 

 

Vintage Vault is inspired by iconic computer based dungeon crawling role playing games where legendary settings are yours to design.

- A dank sludge and slime covered brick dungeon, full of green ichorous water, deep under a large city. Every turn is full of danger from above or below the muck.

 

- Buried deep under dark mountains, this dank and crumbling location, once used by worshipers of an evil spider queen, has since fallen into decay and ruin. Bizarre and dark arcane runes can be found deep within. What they were once used for is now unknown. Curiosity has its consequences in this dungeon.

 

- Built far before anyone can remember, this long abandoned location was formed from large boulders, either crafted by long forgotten stone forging techniques or through a mystical command of the earthen elements themselves. Believed to have once been built to contain the ascension of a shamanistic god, its true purpose has been lost to time.

 

- Their legendary craftsmanship is evident in how well this place has withstood the test of time without any apparent maintenance. What happened to the dwarves is a mystery, and why they would abandon a place they had so thoroughly invested in is anybody's guess. Sturdy and robust dwarven architecture resists and shrugs off the decay of entropy.

 

- An ornate and magnificent structure dedicated to hedonism and excess. The opulent gold and gem encrusted decorations now emanate an air of unspeakable corruption. A once glorious palace has been tainted by an underlying and hidden evil that no one can put their finger on. Something is wrong here, but no one knows exactly what.

 

 

Lost Realms is driven by a high fantasy setting with tales of epic proportions. A wholly original setting from the mind of the artist, where each set tells its own story.

- An ancient monolithic testament to a now long forgotten deity. Dedicated to the eradication of the dark dragon god and his minions, the sun god blessed the most honorable of those that fought evil, with a griffin companion to aid them in battle and herald the coming of the lightbringers. With that, the Griffin Knights were founded and a colossal base of operations was constructed to be a lodestar and fight back against the encroaching malevolent darkness.

 

- The sacred resting place of royal griffins and the mounted knights that flew them into battle. The sanctified skulls of fallen warriors, holy relics, and tapestries of valor adorn the walls of rough cut stone. Intricately carved sarcophaguses hold the highly honored dead and sacrificial altars to appease the spirits are littered with gifts of gold and burnt offerings.

 

 

Funding from this project will be used to grow the company, purchase needed software and hardware upgrades, hiring additional talent for new 3D models in future projects, as well as funding development of a D&D 5th edition and Pathfinder compatible adventure for use with the dungeon tiles.

The DungeonWorks project is being produced and fulfilled by Game Decor, LLC. After the pledge management period is complete, files will be available for download directly from the GameDecor.com website through your personal account. Once fulfillment has been completed, the files will be available for purchase from the GameDecor.com website at retail prices.

The sets will be staggered for release every 2 weeks as the models are finalized for printing.  The schedule is subject to change with the popularity of sets dictating priority. 

Here is the proposed release schedule:

December 2017

Classic Encounters - Dungeon Core

Classic Encounters - Dungeon Expansion 1

Release dates are subject to change, but more often than not, the sets will potentially release sooner than later as all of the models have already been completed.  The dates are provided as a buffer for quality checks and error correction during the finalization phase.  The finer details and designs of the models are also subject to change as structure optimization and print flaw detection proceeds.

$16,500 - UNLOCKED - "I Really WIsh I Hadn't Seen This."

$17,000 - UNLOCKED - "Wait, Don't Touch It!  Let The Rogue Poke At It First."

- It's a large reinforced treasure chest with big mysterious gem above the lock.  I'm sure it's not a trap...  or a mimic...  probably....

- It's a giant spiked bear trap.  "Seriously, how did you not see it?!?!  This is why everyone calls you the meat shield."

- ???

 

Risks and challenges

There is very little (if any at all) risk of this project not completing and people receiving their items as all of the items shown in render form are already finished. But then again, things beyond our control do happen, such as fires, meteors, and acts of Godzilla. Either way, all of those things would only delay digital delivery, not stop it.

Before Kickstarter existed, I had successfully saw through from start to finish (and on my own dime), the creation and delivery of the popular Girder Mold as seen on the HA forum. I also currently run my own business creating prototypes and small scale mass production. So, I have the proven experience and skill in project management. My previous Kickstarter (Game Decor Paints) was delivery delayed due to record breaking low temperatures (-50'F) and an extended winter season which prevented me from shipping the paints on schedule without freezing damage to the products, but everyone that completed the pledge manager did receive their paints. Due to the digital nature of this project and our online residence on one of the major internet server farms, digital distribution reliability is guaranteed and physical shipping delays will not be an issue.
