View Full Version : A small tavern

Might as well enter this one, since I haven't before.

This is a small tavern with one large dining area and a storeroom. I might make it somewhat of a kitchen as well, so I'll have to put a stove of some sort in there.

The table and chairs are objects from one of the VTT forums, Dundjinni I believe. They were much prettier when I got them; I grunged them up quite a bit. Same with the floor texture, as I'm going for an old and worn feel.

I suppose when this is all said and done I'll throw it in the CWBP somewhere. Probably in Callie's Thicket--it looks like a good place for halflings.

Anyway, c&c welcome and appreciated, as always.

I like it simple and to the point. I could see you using some of the doors from those same sites but as it is it is great for a road side tavern.

It's looking great!

I suggest a latrine trough, out back, against the wall.

That floor is awesome. The tables and chairs might be a bit too dark (I know I should shoot myself for saying that) but the wood there looks good also. Nice job.

The floor is a pretty awesome texture, but if we're judging by the average width of a chair, the planks are... two feet wide? Must be some whoppin' trees in that neck of the woods! LOL Maybe make the other parts bigger so you can logically keep the scale of the neat-o floor? Or there's just a forest of giant trees right over... there.

I don't mind the light/dark choices at all. I think it looks good -- like an out-of-the-way, not-Las-Vegas ought to look. Nicely grunged, too!

The tavern is for halflings so the tables are halfling size : )

There is that... ;)

Appreciate the comments. I'll work on it a bit more this weekend; hopefully I'll come up with something worth something.

I narrowed the floor planks as suggested, thanks for that. Also robbed the Dundjinni forums for some barrels and stuff.

I think it's probably pretty close to complete as far as the map itself goes, but since I've got time I might try to do something to make the entire piece pop a little.... though as for what, I haven't a clue.

C&C, please.

Thanks.

I think it looks great now, but if you're looking to add stuff, how about a fireplace? Some work on the doors to be more sympathetic to the stle of the rest of the map? Scratches and graffiti carved into the tables! Sawdust on the floor! Windows!

I love the textures.

You also need a cupboard to put all of the mugs in.

Another thing I'd add is an opening in the bar, so the bar tender and wenches can get out to the customers.

Well, I guess that's going to have to be the final version. Somehow it seems that I accidentally merged all the layers and didn't notice it before I saved...

Exactly HOW I did something so incredibly stupid, I'll never know... but alas, it happened, so this is what we get. ;)

At least it's done, for the most part...

Wow - I wouldn't want to be drunk around those flames!


I like the mood - Honestly I like your first one better. Minimalist but simply excludes all the small stuff. Once you start correcting things where do you start.

- Cupboards
- Hearth
- Place to wash dishes
- Place to store beer\stock
- Kitchen....


Sort of end up with doll house syndrome where one level of realism demands the next. Before you know it someone is saying that all the place mats shouldn't match and some should have monograms. :)

I really like the jaunty angle!!! And agreed with Sigurd, once you put in an element of detail you've got to detail the whole map to that level or it looks odd.

But a big barbarian's axe lodged in the bar (because the barkeep didn't get his drink to him early enough) would have been fun!!

Haha! I was thinking the same thing! I like the improvements, though -- and clearly this is a tavern only for drinking ale. Just duck the tankard in the water barrel and give it a swish, and it's ready for the next customer! We don't need no stinkin' wheat muffins!

Funny, I didn't really think the flames were that big. Too bad I destroyed my layers, or I'd play with them a bit to make them better suited. Ahh well.
