    I like it. Its quite the convention centre!


    Dollhouse Syndrome = The temptation to turn a map into a picture, obscuring the goal of the image with the appeal of cute, or simply available, parts. Maps have clarity through simplification.

    Thanks for the comments everyone...I think I'm starting to settle into a style I like.

    Happy to hear that the ever-present threat of attack from the monster-infested forests nearby doesn't deter intrepid vacationers such as yourselves. It's been a month and a half since the last attack, and almost a year since we lost Geoffrey, the stable hand. Now, with the new owners being brave adventurers, the possibility of troublemakers targeting The Lucky Monkey seems downright unthinkable.*

    On the contrary! Our prices are comparable to any roadside inn near monster-ridden wildlands. Guests that are handy with a bow or sword can earn themselves a tidy discount by aiding in the inn's defense, should one of the rare monster attacks occur during their stay.*

    If you look closely, you can see that it's the same texture as the walls, just a little narrower so that the windows are recognizable as such. I did do a version that has light shining through the stained-glass windows, but it just looked far too busy for me.

    Indeed. Fridays are Polka-Rama nights, and Saturdays are Cribbage tournament nights. It can get a little out of hand, especially when Grandma has a little too much cider.
