Thread: A goblin camp at full moon

    Default A goblin camp at full moon

    Hi all,

    this is my 2nd map after a first attempt of drawing a village with CD3. I don´t know if I´m posting right, after reading the sub-forum descriptions I decided to post it as an "general outdoor map" ;-)

    I used the CC3 bundle here as well with heavily editing the result in PS afterwards.

    I´m really looking forward for your comments & perhaps advice?

    my main issue is: the cave-entry in the middle of the lake looks boring & isn´t THE eye-cather. My players will arrive at the top of the huge cliff in the south. Their goal is to sneak in the camp and finally try to reach the cave & see what´s inside. But i need some cool effects (aka red big arrow "ADVENTURE HERE, PLEASE ENTRY").

    I personally thought about some mysterious shadows with some green/purple glow arround and perhaps a small light glow inside the dark hole of the cave? But I have no idea how to do this lighting thing in PS properly, the mediocre results at the firecamps and watchtowers may show it...

    Thanks a lot in advance, please feel free to comment any other aspect of this map, too.

    A couple things you might try with the cave:

    Provide a path leading into it.
    Make it a bit larger.
    It looks a bit flat, so maybe some shadows to make it stand out a bit?
    A light from inside the cave would also emphasize the entrance.
