What is your favourite piece of dungeon decor/scenery and where did it come from? Pictures encouraged :)

I'm looking for artists to contribute to Barrowmaze. I'm looking to fill drop-in spots with potential for larger pieces.

Please send me samples. Greg

I like a good rant. Well done.
  As you are warned in my slug line, this blog is occasionally rants.   Time for one.   DnD 5e is coming, as we all know, and while I do not agree with some of its foes that it is the Devil, I also reject its evangelists who ...

Does anybody know of a company that sells plain 28mm skeletons in a standing or prone position?

Can anyone suggest a source for 28-25mm braziers, or other dungeon decor, for a d&d game? I'm looking for something like the brazier statues sold previously by Mega Miniatures.

I have mine mounted on a mini base. I'll probably just end up getting more of those. Apparently Johnny L is doing a decor kick-starter in the spring

I like much of what you have here but I disagree with accessibility. I think that should be part of the game itself rather than a highway.
I've been meaning to do this for a while - list out the practices I've incorporated into building my megadungeons.  I've been running megadungeons for the past 3 years and have been building up some useful experiences.  The p...

Hello all,

I need some help finding a specific piece called the "Chaos Shrine" from an old Grenadier Miniatures Boxed Set called 2030 Encounter in the Catacombs of the Undercity.

Picks are below. Can someone help me out with a sell or trade?

Thanks! Greg

That's a pretty cool set, and one that I don't remember from back in the day.

Labyrinth Lord players will likely be interested to read this follow-up news article in The Escapist on Barrowmaze.

They are big tabletop people over there, and have played Barrowmaze in their homegame prior to dialogue with me.

Wow, what a great follow-up article. Jonathan Bolding from The Escapist just nailed it!

Not only do they like Barrowmaze, they have played it and understand the OSR.

Please pass this along. Greg
It's not every dungeon cooked up at home that's worthy of publishing, but Barrowmaze had that special magic. And a little help from its friends.

Thank you Anders.

I was afraid I made a fool of myself, so I appreciate it the kind words.
