    Nice!

    I am pretty sure I will make us of the rusty cage parts. Better than what I have.

    The bas-relief also looks great I will look for a place to use it.

    Man, that's some creepy looking eggs!

    Here is the original that the snake floor etching was made from:

    And a snakeskin rug

    I also made 4 new snake fountains and posted them in my mapping elements thread,
    you can find them at the bottom of the page here: Mapping Elements, Starting with Preset Tables and Chairs

    This is one of them:

    Simon,

    Talking about the Armory itself and the lab area.

    That straw bed from the Iron Dwarf thread on Dundjinni is perfect and the bookcases rock too.

    Bogie,

    Thank you for the contributions I've always enjoyed your maps.

    Ok; I toyed around with the breeding pool...


    What do you think of it so far?


    *WIP*   Why did it have to be snakes?     Aka, the Yuan-Ti temple-breeding-pool.png

    Ultimately, I would like to make it a fairly dark room with a few torches casting strong shadows and stark contrasts...


    Next, I think I will go back to the first map and add the furniture.

    Thicker walls look great and the breeding pool is great.

    I agree with the dark feel you want to go with on the breeding pool. This is the final encounter area, so you can make it as menacing as you want.

    The way I see it... I already made the lower floor darker than the top one (to make shadows and give an impression of depth in the room with the snake pool) and I will do the breeding pool even darker.

    It makes sense some sense as the cave is the furthest away point from the entrance and should help make the players feel more threatened as they progress through the adventure...

    If you want to make the walls in the breeding cave look creepier try this dark root wall texture from Kepli.

    This is an example of what it looks like as a wall in DundJinni.

    Thanks Bogie.


    I had to tweak the scale a bit and unfortunately, most of the creepy is lost at this scale. Still here it is what it looks like:
    *WIP*   Why did it have to be snakes?     Aka, the Yuan-Ti temple-breeding-pool.png



    As mentioned, I worked on the furniture from the top floor.


    Here is what it looks like:

    *WIP*   Why did it have to be snakes?     Aka, the Yuan-Ti temple-yuan-ti-temple.png



    And; here is the version where the secret passage still lies undiscovered and hidden:

    *WIP*   Why did it have to be snakes?     Aka, the Yuan-Ti temple-yuan-ti-temple-no-secret.png



    Balancing furniture is a always a bit of a puzzle, on one hand, you want to provide enough to feel somewhat natural. On the other hand, if you do so, the rooms will be cramped and hinder the game during fight scenes (strangelly enough, it would seem that, in the real world, providing a suitable battlefield for a mortal clash half a dozen warriors and spell-caster, rate fairly low on the list of most interior decorators...
