    I removed the tiles, replaced them with the same flags as in the courtyard, and made some fixes. I prefer it now but it really needs nice 5-foot tiles.

    Nice Tower JackT

    I'll see if I have some tiles that could be made to work for you.

    From a visual standpoint I think that looks better. But for game mechanics go with what you need to make it work

    Even if I am correct, I would still advise you to follow your heart. This whole Cartographers Guild thing, it seems to me, is more about passion and skill and learning new techniques than it is about definitions and rules.

    This is the first WIP of the interior of the house. I'm not sure what this should be, function-wise. A little office for the stablemaster/smith? I'll throw in a desk and bookshelf, perhaps a barrel and some crates. What's the best way to show windows?

    I love the lighting in these. There are some window elements out there but I usually just show light streaming in from places where windows would logically be.

    Finished the office-type structure. The furniture is not by me.

    And here's the overview:

    That looks great. The only question I have is what is that block that sits above the door?

    It was supposed to be the threshold - obviously not a very good one. I'll try and rejig it, maybe adding shadows to ensure it 'sits' down low on the ground.

    If you made it narrower that might help too. I'm not 100 & certain you would even need a threshold if the building was sitting directly on the paving stones (of course it is a neat detail)
