View Full Version : *** April/May Lite Challenge - Not Your Father's 1st Level Lair ***

04-18-2013, 11:23 PM
Hi folks, and welcome to the April/May Lite Challenge. This month's challenge is thus:

Take a minor race that bothers adventurers when they're starting out and create a fiendish lair for them. It could be an abandoned temple repurposed by a tribe of kobolds, thick with traps; it could be a series of mines or caverns inhabited by goblins; it could part of a haunted forest protected by spiteful fey folk; it could be a ruined castle inhabited by a low-ranking necromancer and crawling with hordes of low-level undead. Go crazy!

Additionally, each entry must contain one or more of the following:

1) one watercourse (a stream, a canal, etc)
2) primary and secondary defenses (thought that poison-dart spitting statue was the only trap in the room? Surprise!)
3) two different means of entering the lair (could be a stealth method and a brute force method, for example)

Title each new thread March/April Lite Entry - <your title>

Precede each WIP image with the tag ### Latest WIP ###.

The challenge will end on or around the 13th of May, and the winner will receive a silver compass, and glory.

I've been thinking about a small project to try out some technique, this might be perfect! Sadly I didn't see it until quite late but I might be able to pull something together. A watercourse... yes of course!

Fiendish idea cooking...

Hey guys, just a reminder that this contest will end around 8 or 9 PM Pacific time next monday evening. Make sure all your entries are in by then...

About 7 or 8 hours left. I'll be home from work about then, and threads will be locked down, poll up at that time. So if you've got any last minute additions or changes, now's the time!
