Introducing a Dungeons & Dragons-Inspired LEGO Set
Dungeons & Dragons enthusiasts may soon be able to bring their campaigns to life, LEGO-style. Laughing Squid reports that a fan of the fantasy tabletop role-playing game has designed a D&D-inspired set, allowing players to build their own dungeons and lairs from the tiny toy bricks.
The 3000-piece LEGO set is called Dungeon Master. It isn't officially affiliated with D&D. Instead, an internet user who goes by the name of Ymarilego posted the idea onto the LEGO Ideas website. For the uninitiated, the site is an outlet where LEGO fans can share mock-ups of potential designs. If 10,000 people like a design, it becomes eligible for review to become a licensed LEGO product.
Dungeon Master recently reached the coveted 10,000 number, so LEGO hobbyists may someday be able to purchase a real-life version of Ymarilego’s set. He explained how it works on the LEGO Ideas site:
With this set you can create your own dungeons and lairs for the heroes to investigate. There are dozens of possible layouts and setups. You can place the rooms in any sequence desired to create the lair you like. Six minifigures of different monsters/villains can be placed in your dungeon for you heroes to combat. There are also several smaller creatures already in the rooms that can of course be placed where desired.
