View Full Version : March/April Lite Challenge Entry: Hall of gathering

03-23-2011, 06:13 PM
As there is no other entry I fell compeled to do something. I hav to admit that I have a hard time coming up wirh something as I never did a dungeon tile, battlemap or anything similar. Ill look at it like a challenge ;) So I want to to a hall for some mages to gahter and debate, probably with an audience on the raised plattforms. I played around to get a 3d top down look which messed up the tiling to look good. Anyway I was pleased with the technique. Its just a single floortile for now, something that is clearly visible. Ill redo that. But here is my start within the rather strict limitations of this challenge....

Cool Idea :)

Good start. As you go forward, please check that you're within the scope of the challenge (15 squares to a side, 100px per square and the walls are solid black). There are example blanks in the challenge thread now. I don't think you'll have any difficulty with fitting this within that scope. Looks like a fun layout to begin with.

So there is some progress. First shot at a stair, some custom mage table using the arcane circle brushes (http://www.obsidiandawn.com/arcane-circles-photoshop-gimp-brushes) from obsidiandawn and some chairs by profantasy dd3. Going forward with the stairs next time. I think Im now within the parameters... ;)

That is so very cool. Makes me want to sit in the gallery and listen to the mages argue. :)

Building a frame for the debating pit...

(Ive tried and tried but could not insert a thumb inline.. has to be server sided, any ideas? )

Very cool Troedel, that frame is an excellent addition. Is there going to be seating in the upper tier?

Thats something to consider. I just fear that the whole map will look rather crowded. Checking it out the next few days. THX for suggesting.

Oh man I love this map as well! It's the perfect shadowfell evil temple that I've ever seen!

Awesome. It has the perfect "dark and ominous" feel. Great job . :)
