<p>I'm looking to build a little dwarf-styled cavern complex somewhere. I'm just not sure where to do it. Break out of Mistmoore Manor? Need some suggestions.</p>

<p>Mistmoore Craigs is a good idea, I have built in the breakout there with several homes.  However, there is one very important caveat with breakouts:  The further away from the actual house, the longer the rendering will take.  In some cases certain items may not render at all.</p><p>The Tenerous Isle Refuge leaves plenty of room and avoids the rendering process.  However, it is best that the zone-in is included *within* the cave system.  You really want to give the sense that they are at the bottom of a Dwarvish Mountain.</p><p>Build a scaffolding of tiles (I used the mosaic tiles which could be purchased in unlimited quantities) upon which to place your crude and rough stone benches.  When each level is finished, use the layout editor to pack the scaffolding away in the moving crate.</p><p>I would suggest that you build it no more that 4-5 stories high, and make it as non-linear as you can.  Give it 4-5 main cavern spaces (an have an idea on what purpose each one has in the mine.  For instance, you might have a smelting room, or a treasure room, or a gem filled cavern, or a lava room, or a room with pools in it.</p><p>Make the tunnels narrow to give it more of a tunnel feel to it.</p><p>That's all I can think of off the top of my head.</p>
