Why choose a modular terrain system?

Modular terrain systems have some key features that are pretty compelling. For starters, the pieces are interchangeable. The tiles, posts and walls you built with your Infinite Dungeons: Core Set, for example, can be used in conjunction with your Caverns: Core Set pieces. If you want to make your dungeon passageway open up into a natural tunnel, you can! The modular terrain system is designed for multi-level layouts, too. Floor tiles can stack on top of posts and walls, giving you more visually interesting environments to explore. Modular builds allow assembling sections of your final setup, giving you easier access to all of the different areas, or allowing you to incrementally piece together a floor plan as it is being explored. Modular terrain breaks down and stores relatively flat, too. A shoebox may be all you need to store a complete dungeon build.

What’s the best way to get started?

There’s a list below of materials required. The sets come with fully illustrated instructions for each of the pieces. If you are really into the hobby, a Silhouette brand cutting machine can really make quick work of cutting out all of the pieces. Cutfiles are provided for everything – just load the printed page into your cutter, load the cutfiles and go!

It can be overwhelming if you are new to papercrafting. Starting with a simpler building (especially some of Paper Realms’ freebies!) is a great way to practice. A good rule to follow for modular terrain is to start small. Rather than thinking “I need to build hundreds of posts and walls!” think instead “I would love to a cool room for a key encounter to take place” and build just what’s needed for that. The gratification of being able to use what you’ve built right away really helps keep things going. Having one complete room is a lot better to start with than trying to make one of everything without a purpose, and never finishing. After that first room is done, build another set of pieces, and now you can set up even more encounters. You’ll have a large terrain set before long, but you won’t have to wait until the end to start using it.

What if I’m having a lot of trouble?

Have patience, and don’t go it alone! There are great papercrafting communities online that you might want to join if you’re seeking advice, some motivation or even a little camaraderie.
