We have recently been running Pathfinder and seem to be getting into situations with significant height/depth issues. For example a mine or other cavern complex, cellar areas, etc. We use some physical pieces from Hirst Arts, Dwarven Forge and custom pieces. I've never been happy with the solutions I've seen for height changes that is for more than a set piece or small area. I'm not talking about table top terrain such a hills and other war game solutions. This is more for interior pieces supporting stairs or more dungeon-crawly things.
I'm thinking of a set of risers using multiples of 12"x12", 8"x8", 4"x4" pieces that are 1" or 2" high. These just have to support the pieces and are not terrain in and of themselves.
I've looked at wood products but its tough to find accurate heights at 1" and 2" which all of the existing pieces use. In addition, wood gets expensive. Same issue finding something in plastic. I've played with dense foam but it moves too much and keeps disturbing the pieces.
Styrofoam might work, but I haven't found a supply in the right height yet. There one product that might work, which is ridge insulation. I used that to create depth for river and swamp water boards. It has a foil backing on both sides though the edges tend to take damage in normal wear.
Anyway, I was hoping someone might have a better solution.
4x4" blocks out of heavy paper are no problem. The others would be difficult to make as the standard paper sizes (Letter, A4) are too small for that. But then you could use multiples of the 4x4" blocks to form the others.
The easiest and cheapest might be using thick brown cardboard used for packaging. I usually am able to scavenge that from shops or the paper recycling bin in our house.
About the moving: depending on the surface they are put anything will move (or not). One solution could be spray on adhesive that does not glue firmly but just makes it stick and be removed again. Not sure how this will affect the underlying mat when used often.
Vermin King: It does help keep you from picking up unintended hitchhiker files, though. It would be better if they gave a notification that you are attempting to download multiple files and to check the box in front of each file you wish to download

cowboyleland: I see now. Some new upgrade (windows? chrome?) blocks downloads of "multiple files" at a time. The miniscule notification that the download was blocked appears in the corner of the screen for a fraction of a second. "They" call this progress.

cowboyleland: For some reason Hoard 93 isn't downloading for me. No error message, just nothing happens when I click.

Vermin King: Every so often a Thank You goes a long way. Ray over at Ravensblight is going through a dark time ( I know. Dark is kinda his theme ), but if you appreciate his work, you might go to the site and grab his email and send him a Thank You
