    So I decided to go back and update the Rose Quarry map. Strategically, even though the original map had them even smaller (it could also be a system difference between 3.5e and 4e) but the refinery and the church were entirely to small for any type of combat to take place. so i expanded them. I also broke up the main map into 4 individual "encounter" driven maps.

    Carriage Encounter - Whisper's of the Vampires Blade. (not my best work but just something thrown together for a mediocre encounter).

    There is a time and a place to spend your valuable time, and mediocre encounters probably aren't it. None the less I suspect that these visuals would help get the players in the mood of the thing.

    Yeah, I like the encounter as it is written , seems like a cool high speed chase through a dark forest - Just not all 3.5 encounters translate into 4e seamlessly for me. At the characters current level and with some decent controller abilities, i am not sure how difficult it will to be catch a runaway carriage...

    it could be a very short encounter - so lets go with "quick" vs "mediocre" :-D

    I'm good at not choosing my words carefully. I've only very limited experience with 4e, but disagree with any system that discourages exciting chase scenes.

    Good point - Thought to be fair, 4e does have the "skill challenge" system which may be a bit more applicable for this situation now that i think of it - but if so a battlemap is hardly necessary and can go with the whole "theater of the mind". Meh, to each his own, for all its faults its still a enjoyable system - not to turn this thread into a system merits comparison or anything.

    Back to the nitty gritty -> up next this week ANOTHER rendition of the airship! One of the more challenging maps I have worked on yet.

    Eberron - Cloud's Destiny - Airship
    Whisper's of the Vampire's Blade
    Ok, phew this one was rough! This is just the rough draft, i am hoping to jazz it up some. Anyone have any suggestions to make it look better? specifically the exterior graphics? Thanks!

    This is really nicely done the lighting on the interior is especially nice. The least convincing section is the flames and even those aren't bad. Short of finding a better flame image I can't think of how to improve that and as stated I'm not sure there is a need to.

    Thanks madcow! Great tips - I wish I knew how to add "glare" to objects. I have not quiet got that figured out yet. I think some glare on the "wings" and a rosy cast from the fire may help; but just cant seem to wrap my head around it yet.
