    No problem. My thought on the straw was more about 'residual' straw that would be left all over the floor from constantly bringing it in and the horses knocking it around and such. The bales of hay though is definitely a good idea for filler and could serve as easy cover.

    Will you be posting an "in game" pic? I would love to see it in action.

    Now I've got the floor sorted out I'll post a screenshot of the dressed Inn from the maptoold campaign when I have it all put together. Now all we need is for trevor to get that 'export map' function built into maptool...

    I'll post an in-game shot if anyone here is interested - otherwise I'll keep those posts to the maptool forums.

    Yes, that would be a nice feature. Whether you post here or there I'll catch it.

    Quick tip-

    Head over to devientART and search for gimp grung brush (or click here

    http://search.deviantart.com/?sectio...p+grunge+brush

    then download a bunch. Indespensible for adding wear, dirt and mess to things

    Thanks. I'll have a go with those. I haven't really gone into custom gimp brushes yet, that should keep me out of trouble for a few days....

    I really appreciate the chandelier. There's nothing like a good chandelier swing to liven up a bar brawl. Very thoughtful of you as a GM, and hopefully your players will take advantage of it....

    Cheers and very nice map!

    Thanks. They had better use the chandelier, after I placed it there so carefully...

    On a similar theme I thought this might be a good place to ask. I'm currently doing the set dressing on the Inn and I was trying to think of entertaining things to have in a bar fight and I'm drawing a bit of a blank. So if anybody has any particular favourite items for a bar fight, please suggest them!

    Okay, I have dressed the Inn and thought I'd post some pictures. The set dressing is done by placing the objects (separate .png files) on to the base map in maptools. So I've exported some screenshots of the dressed inn with both player and GM views. Changes from previous posts: The floor got a bit muddier and the hearths now have some charcoal smudges. Thanks for the grunge brush link for those. All the objects are my own creation in gimp, except for the horses which were lifted from www.rpgmapshare.com and created by a guy called steelrat - who runs the site.

    Anyway, here they are:

    Players' and GM's views of the ground floor:
    Inn for VTT-playerview.pngInn for VTT-gmview.png

    Player's and GM's views of the first floor:
    Inn for VTT-playerviewlv1.pngInn for VTT-gmviewlv1.png

    Any further C&C appreciated, though these are pretty well done now. All that is left is to add in the other patrons and have a full on bar fight!

    If anyone wants to use these, feel free. I can easily create a version with all the set dressing but without the maptool shading for ease of use. Let me know if this would be helpful.

    Man, those are some SWEET maps.

    Can I ask you to post them on Eruvian.com along with the gaming content (e.g. characters, encounter details, traps, treasure, etc.)? I'm sure the community there would greatly value this inn as a locale, and probably want to incorporate them into at least one of the settings that are being collaboratively built. Everything on Eruvian is published in both GM-only and player views, so the fact you've got both maps is just perfect.

    Work of this quality must be shared with the world! Thanks!
    Post your maps in the context they belong in - your world! - at Eruvian.com. Be a builder of worlds...!

    Thanks. It was fun to build it and I learned a lot. I'll check out Eruvian.
