View Full Version : Dungeon Keeper Chess Set

I’ve been wanting to make a Dungeon Keeper 1 inspired chess set for awhile now. The board would have tiles similar to the claimed territory tiles in the game. So far heres my idea for which creatures could be which pieces. I wanted them to make sense but at the same time stick to the more iconic creatures of the game though because of limited types of pieces in chess it was hard to choose. Here is my list:

Rook=Bile Demon
Queen=Horned Reaper
King=Dungeon Heart

Imp was a given for the pawns and Bile Demon is best fit for the Rook. I wanted to include the dragon and felt that a dragon head would be perfect replacement for horse head for knight piece. As far as Bishop I’m not entirely sure what would be best. I wanted to include dark mistress and vampire so maybe i could choose one of those for bishop but for right now i have warlock. Horned Reaper would be best served as the queen piece because he is a killing machine. And for the king I felt it was fitting to put a dungeon heart even though in videogame its stationary. Please let me know your thoughts on this i would love to make this chess set.

I would prefer Bishop= dark mistress

because she is a "dungeon keeper star"

For the heroes?! :

Yeah I agree I’ll make it a dark mistress instead of warlock. I was considering making 2 different solid color keeper sets then maybe have a set that has more detailed natural colors for keeper and have the heroes on other side.
