Quick and dirty tips time. Tons going on at our house (minor bathroom remodel, yay!) so, though this would be better as a video walkthrough à la Nate, since I do not have a video setup or time to quickly fake one, we’ll be one half step better than the Theater of the Mind: a Medium post with some snaps from my phone. Dwarven Forge and other 3D terrain lovers, get yourselves the little paper organizer set from Ikea known as TJENA. It’s just the right size to work with Dwarven Forge terrain!
Piece 1: The Tray
Piece 2: Low Square
Piece 3: Medium Square
Piece 4: High Square
Piece 5: The Big Tjena
Okay, dungeonmasters, hie thee hence to ye olde Ikea and start blowing your players minds with more multi-level builds!
p.s. I bet the GRÅSIDAN set from Ikea would work even better, all being 2″ tall, but I haven’t gotten one to play with yet. — — — As of late August 2019 I have gotten to try the GRÅSIDAN pieces and they’re great!
“But, Dinah,” I hear you cry, “where will I store all these pieces?”
😉 That’s the life changing magic of tidying up… Flip them over and Konmari your drawers!
Now doesn’t a stealth roll like that spark joy?
