    Wip Wizard's Ring

    Here's my latest idea... a tall, towering spire crafted from solid black stone (obsidian?) with no discernible entrances. Entrance into the tower is through a secret door that quickly reveals that the interior of the tower is in its own pocket dimension (in other words, it is bigger on the inside than the outside). Who or what calls this tower home is unknown (at least to the PCs ).

    Or Howl's Moving Castle...

    Did I mention that the evil Wizard who owns this tower is really the Master in disguise.

    Heh - I am starting to think I should keep my thoughts in my head !!!

    I have an interesting image for you. I did a castle based on an image which is entitled "Obsidian Castle" so ill get you that link as it might make for a great backdrop to the shape of it. Your brief description sounded like it could fit. I also put in a lot of magic into this castle and had no door. Strange huh ?

    A Fabulous pic. I still love it even now.

    Edit -- In fact I have already scanned in the maps and text from the old days. I could give you my version as a zip if you like...
    Edit2 -- but theres a lot missing it seems - ah well.

    Very nice pic indeed! Not exactly what I was thinking of but still a very nice piece of work. I was originally thinking if a thin, crooked sharp needle-like spire/tower (sort of how the top of a wizard's hat is usually drawn if that makes sense). I also like the idea of no features on the outside of the tower. I picture it with an almost Cthulhu-like/Other-worldly feel. I went with the tower idea to contrast it with the ring shaped interior. Course I might drop the tower idea and just go with the ring shape by itself. I need to work on a few more maps and then work out the rest of the details.

    I wouldn't mind seeing them. My email should be listed on my user profile.

    Love Rodney Matthews art, first I ever saw was on the cover of the Magnum Album - Chase The Dragon. In fact I was just looking at his site this morning, but I didn't see the "Chase" artwork.

    ...Aha found a link to it here

    Here's the 2nd level of the tower. Rooms 13, 22, and 29a have balconies that are open to the interior garden below. Curtains hang between the pillars on these balconies. Room 27 has illusionary walls. Stairs in the secret room 36 go up to the third level.

    This is really looking pretty cool, any decision on what the outside looks like yet?
