    Default The Lucky Monkey

    This is a map of a roadside inn that the group I play with uh..."inherited", so to speak. (From Dungeon #98 )

    I like it. Its quite the convention centre!

    Very Cool. I think I'd like the soft red glow from the tinted windows Repped

    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.

    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.
