View Full Version : July Entry: Setting the bar high

07-08-2008, 06:35 PM
Well the atrocious puns got me thinking and doodling when I got back from the cinema this evening. This is a place-holder but it's a concept I didn't throw away. I'll see where it goes.


Yes, it's a flying bar.

Noice!!! even the sketch is artful.

Ohhhh steampunk! (I hope!) - A floating bar in the sky? Wonderful!

Once your done, the FHCO's and I want to model it in Sketchup, please, they have discovered a whole batch of ruby scripts (http://www.crai.archi.fr/RubyLibraryDepot/Ruby/RUBY_Library_Depot.htm), some of which allow the easy modelling of hulls and odd shapes, and your sketch looks like it would test their ever improving skill.

Reminder to self - never post ideas for maps late at night :)

Well, I'm completely new to steampunk stuff, so this could be a steampunk flying bar, but I'll have to rely on others to keep me honest with the genre stuff. Equally, this could be an elemental driven eberron style flying bar - or just plain odd.

If this gets to completion then of course you are free to model it in sketchup!

Edit: Of course, I'll be expecting a vote from each of the FHCOs :D

Well, they only have one login and posting is restricted, as Lemur loves to type but has a limited list of words she knows,,,,,and one thing they have learned, or one of many, whilst working on Snapgallows and its Compendium, is "rules is rules".........otherwise Raith's Wyvern would be 40 feet tall....but I am sure you would get their "that's Fick" vote.....Fick is a Snappie term for anything reallllly good.

Well I'll be very happy if this manages to grab their imagination. They seem a discerning crowd. I'd best get on to making this 'Fick'.

Well, in lieu of any progress, here are the other sketches - I think I'm happy with sticking with the heli-bar, unless anyone has a burning urge to see a zeppelin again?

I think your Heli-bar has the most mapping options!

especially if the way down to the "cellar" is a slide (for the empty kegs of course), and the way up is stairs...I went to a salt mine in Austria once that was set up that way, most fun a 30+ year old could have, after a half day in the BierGarten.

Unfortunately this has no way of getting done before the deadline. Too many RL deadlines this month getting in the way. Good luck to all the other entries. I will try to get this into reasonable shape over the next month or so for the FHCOs to have a shot at.
