This article is about basic dungeon terrains; If you have any terrains for roleplaying purposes, they are much likely to be stone wall -terrains like these!
In my fantasy roleplaying game sessions, I use mostly three kinds of terrain (gaming props used with miniatures, if you are not familiar with the term): As my main setting currently is Ptolus, which is an urban setting, I'm using City terrain (houses, marketplace items etc); the second type is tiled wall terrain (which can be used for built dungeons, in
