    Default making an Underdark City with stalactites and stalagmites

    Helo,

    I have the idea of making an underdark city for a Drow-theme campaing that I'm running, but the problem with City Designer is that all the buildings are human oriented, no stalagtites or something like that.
    I was looking for a library of underdark, but I can't find it. So I was thinking in made my own, rock/stalagtites, or something like that, but I don't know how to do that.

    Any Idea?

    Thanks

    i'll be eagerly following this thread since i'm thinking of incorporating the underdark into my own campaign in the near future. While City Designer doesn't having that sort of thing, I know dungeon designer (and other products from Profantasy) do have stalagtites and other cave oriented objects. You should check out the Dunjinni Forums to find some stuff that could work.

    I don't know how to actually create objects myself, but I wouldn't mind learning or helping out if anyone does have any ideas.

    If you have access to Photoshop (or GIMP) it's possible to draw your own objects and save them in .png format which I believe you can them import in to city designer.

    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.
