I was able to use this set for the finale of the classic module D3: Vault of the Drow, to great effect. I was able to switch around tiles to make it more cave-like than temple-like, print out a few more egg sacks for a plot point, and construct a lower level room out of the bonus tiles. This really proves the versitility of tiles; while I liked Ed's default layout and was tempted to use it as is, I was able to tweak it to meet my needs without it looking cobbled together.

Well, Chris Heard gives a good description of this set in his review below, and based on his review I bought this set. I was looking for something along the lines of a 'Caves Details meets the Temple series' and this is perfect.

What I would add though, is that the underground cave part fits perfectly with the Caves of Peril set. Especially important ( to me ) are the addition of these pieces especially the 'corner pieces' that neatly stop you having to add about 12 entrances into a Cave of Peril.

Overall a fantastic set, and I would say a total MUST buy if you have Caves of Peril, and vice versa, if you have this, then buy the Caves of Peril ! Brilliant !

Although the tiles in Temple of the Spider Queen are designed to be laid out according to a certain pattern, they are quite flexible and fully compatible with other offerings in the e-Adventure Tiles line. Temple of the Spider Queen features tiles that would go very well with tiles from Ed's earlier temple, cavern, and dungeon sets, so it's a great extension to your e-Adventure Tiles collection. The set offers fifteen tiles that can be put together to form "the main temple," with many interesting features including idols, a pit, dungeon entrances, egg chambers, and storage rooms. another ten tiles are designed to form "the spider pits," a nasty-looking place where captives or intruders could be fed to the spiders. (The spider pit caverns are in the same style as the Caves of Peril.) Finally, there are six bonus tiles (though the online bonus tile appears not to have been uploaded yet).<br><br> <b>LIKED</b>: Everything. The art and layout are wonderful.<br><br><b>DISLIKED</b>: Only that the bonus tile that's supposed to be available online isn't on the SKG website (yet).<br><br><b>QUALITY</b>: Excellent<br><br><b>VALUE</b>: Very Satisfied<br>

Like The Lair of Vermithraxus, this set is long overdue in my GM's library of Adventure Tiles. Well worth the wait.

I use the Cave style sets (Cave Passages, Cave Chambers) in almost every session that I run. By combining those tiles with these specialty sets, I can put together all sorts of great dungeon crawls. They are visually evocative and bring my game to a whole new level.

Please, that's not just platitudes. These sets are awesome (and I expect the experience to get even better once I start using an overhead color projector to project all my maps!)

Here's my "must have" list of tiles (although I'm sure Ed doesn't need the inspiration):

Dragon's Lair Theme (amply served in The Lair of Vermithraxus-- at least as far as red dragons go. How about something swampy and wet for the black dragon fans?)

Drow Theme (this here set, wahoo!)

Humanoid Tribe "Leader Rooms" (orc, gnoll, kobold, goblin, etc.-- a "throne room", a "shaman's room", and a "common room" for each would suffice)

Mind Flayer Theme (too much to dream? I'm seeing some breeding pools, a huge elder brain pool, and the whole thing with walls and floors all tentacled and brainy)

<br><br> <b>LIKED</b>: Just about everything. As usual, Ed's helpful layout pictures showing how the whole thing goes together would pretty much allow me to play this one "right out of the box." More and more it seems that, rather than trying to adapt Ed's tiles to the maps I have in the adventures I am running, I am just changing the maps in my adventures to map what Ed has envisioned.<br><br><b>DISLIKED</b>: This is hardly a complaint. But if Ed wanted to do some bonus tiles for this one, I think some "approaching the temple" Cave Passages with guard points and spider insignia would be nice.<br><br><b>QUALITY</b>: Excellent<br><br><b>VALUE</b>: Satisfied<br>
