DungeonWorks: Gothic Realms includes all of the following:
For an entire dungeon build that was able to allow for two full sessions of playtime, I was able to complete it in about two weeks of spare time. At the time, I was not counting, but if I were to guess I would say that I spent a total of 8-12 hours on the project from start to finish. That includes the time for printing, cutting, edging, gluing and placement. For the quality that I received for this work, I see this as time well spent.
The walls and hallways will come apart with the simple removal of a paper clip. This mean that this set will be easy enough to rebuild into a completely different dungeon. The fact that it is a dungeon means that you obviously would have a hard time passing it off as a pub or a cave, but that is not addressable.
The connection points of the various wall and corridor pieces can be a bit tricky. The guide recommends to use black paperclips. This gives “good enough” results, but isn’t as subtle as some of my players would have hoped for. Looking around for advice, I found that some people use hairpins, bobby pins, or poster tac to solve or partially solve this issue.
This was most definitely worth the cost. The cost issue that I was afraid of was the cost of ink and cardstock. I finished off a partially used black and color ink cartridge and didn’t even come close to half of my pack of cardstock. The key seems to be printing on the fast normal setting, as said in the wonderfully illustrated guides that came with the set.
Overall, this set was wonderful. My players enjoyed it greatly. I was a little surprised at the level of intricacy of some of the pieces, but the guides were great for helping with this and they were honestly less intimidating after I got started. I also am a lot more confident with my skills in construction of cardstock modeling. It isn’t that I improved so much, just that it is easier than I first thought.
Another set using the clip-it wall method. Clip-it walls are a system to make reconfigurable layouts. In this system the walls are simply clipped to one another using paper clips or bobby pins in the corners. These walls come in a variety of textures and lengths.
The upside of this method is that the walls are fantastically quick to build. But they are prone to sliding since they don't have any bases. The instructions recommend bracing them with thumbtacks and there are other methods recommended on the forum, but there are drawbacks to them all.
That being said its a great set. The gothic walls are my favorite textures of all the dungeon options. The corridor sections are self contained rooms with bases. Using them throughout a layout will do a lot to improve the stability. The sewers are fully 3d so they don't have the same problem of the clipit walls.
Interiorworks' props are a must to really flesh out your layouts.
