If I were a betting man, I'd bet it's going to be a bestiary, with maybe some stretch goals involving new critter-counters and maybe some new dry-erase megahexes. Though having a "wilderness adventure" set of megahexes, etc., per Lars' suggestion would be pretty sweet too.

Another cool idea would be something like a boxed city-set with suitable things usable for any city, but perhaps having details for Dranning as an incentive -- maybe with a tie-in to the Tollenkar's Lair adventure...

Whatever it is, I'm guessing that it will be a fairly large project in terms of content; not on the scale of this last one perhaps, but probably bigger than a single adventure...

I made something like that a few years ago. No one else seemed to be interested at the time. Here's a sample with a legend for my terrain symbols that are independent of orientation:

I ended up decreasing the size of the tiles...

I could make more if anyone is interested. I also played around with making larger tiles of sparser outdoor terrain for making outdoor battlemaps if interested.

I love geomorphs - they are such a great GM tool. I have a fully-geomorphic ďmacrohexĒ designed to combine with cards to make endless dungeons that Iím just waiting for Steve & Phil to turn me loose on, and a similar setup for larger-scale outdoor geomorphs. (Itís beautiful, IMNSHO, because it naturally scales up in hex-shape bites.)

Iíl definitely take a look at these.

I think a good model for this sort of thing are the modular terrain boards for Squad Leader and Panzer Grenadier. It would be pretty boss to have sets of terrain presented like this for fantasy table top gaming.

I showed you mine. Now show us yours. C'mon. Just a sneak-peak :)
I'm sure they'll put my fledgling ideas to shame. Don't worry. I can take the embarrasement :)

Actually, I really like your ideas, particularly about symbols that read the same from all directions. Thatís an idea worth really exploring!

I will give you a peek at the dungeon builder, however... or at least at my prototype...

Thanks for the response! I really didn't think we'd get a sneak peek here. Those _are_ groovy! Thanks!

Also, thanks for comments about the symbols. I would love for people to suggest some alternate symbols. The ones I came up with look a lot better with some color, though my color choices might put people's eyes out...

Steve and I have discussed some more card ideas for the game. At the moment, we're still finalizing plans for the next big TFT project; we've got more concepts than hours!

And I've created another card deck for anyone who wants random encounters: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects...th-many-tablet
