The challenge was to create a location where a party of adventurers could meet, group up and head out for the wilds of adventure. The Tavern/Inn was too obvious and I usually try to think outside the box and that's when I thought of a Yurt. I think the modern ones are quite sexy and I figured it would at least be different. I didn't win the challenge but had a lot of fun and it did pretty well in the votes. I think this may be headed to the CWBP which, if true, is pretty awesome in my opinion.
I had the most fun imagining and making up all the little areas inside. The War table with the map and books is my favorite. Folks called the welcome mat a 'goat head' but in fact I thought of it as an angry Donkey who says, "Don't Jack with the Yurt".
