Nov-Dec 2009 Photo Contest -- The Realm of the Ancients! 4 Years, 7 Months ago  
Due to the poor condition of the site over the weekend, I am extending the contest until Tuesday, Noon Central time. After that we will make the tough choice!

Sorry for the delay...but at least one person has been trying to get his entry in.

Thanks.

Realm of the Ancients Set (2)
Realm of the Ancients 2 Set
Straight Wall with Medallion (1 pc)
Ruined Entrance (1 pc)
Short Passages Set
Diagonal Walls Set

The Sword of Law, the Star of Chaos and the Anvil of Might.

Ah so you want to brave the tri-fold challenge of Angaurus? Five times I entered that deathtrap. Five times I escaped. The last time I lost my right arm. And I never got past the hilt of the sword. If you are determined to risk life and limb, for that surely is what you will loose if you enter that place, bring friends that are bright as well as strong. And bring the sort that are extra cautious. You know, the ones that rent a room for the night at an inn, then sleep somewhere else, just to be safe. You need thinkers like that if you hope to survive. You also may want to talk to old Mad Hancock. He made it all the way to the Star of Chaos. Be gentle with him or you'll set him off. I never did figure out how he got that far. Oh, and he was the sole survivor of his adventuring band too, if you call that surviving.

Very nice seaside villa Dudebird!!! It is quite inspirational. What inspired you to build it that way? Just curious 'cause I need some ideas, too.
Thanks!

I've been telling one character in my Wilderlands game about an ancient Ghinoran villa he's dreamt about repeatedly. With the design style of RoTA I figured that'd be a good idea to start with. I googled Greek villas and took a little inspiration from them and just started mashing the pieces together to see what I came up with.

The 4x4 intersections scream for a corresponding 4x4 floor piece. Especially for those who love to stack(me).

The diagonal pathway leading to the dock came quite organically as I didn't like the look of the square pathway when I first made it.

I didn't even think to use MBS until I thought of the dock, but the railings look damn good on the veranda. I wish I had another set...

DaggerdaleDM,

That's a really cool idea. I'm going to borrow a couple of those ideas. I once tried to make a sprawling dungeon crawl that was shaped like a face card in a deck, with two symmetrical torsos & heads holding different weapons. The center had a portal to an undisclosed otherworld. Never photographed or used it, but it was fun to try.

dudebird & Harneloot- Glad you liked it.

it would be great to see the Face Card Dungeon you described!

The sword in the stone or anvil is a pretty powerful image and easily recognized. Throw a little chaos into the mix and you can't help but come up with 101 trap and puzzle ideas with a dungeon like this. Steal away! I get my best setups for my games by starting with setups I see on these forums. This one came to me while looking at a sword my son had. You could easily play with the sword in the anvil as not an actual sword in an avil but as a metaphor for this dungeon. Game on!

WINNERS ANNOUNCED !!!!!!!!!!!!

This was a tough one! Thank you all for entering. These photos give me lots of good adventuring ideas, and hopefully a lot of fun will be inspired here.

We gave out a lot of options, so it is harder to pick the top entry. After a little dice rolling, we have determined the following placement:

1st Place - Ghenghis Ska ($200 GC)

2nd Place - dudebird ($100 GC)

3rd Place - Daggerdale DM ($50 GC)

I am emailing out the coupon codes to the winners now.

Thanks again for posting your designs and photos. We all appreciate the effort!

Thanks Jeff and Steffan!

Now I can put up the pictures I took of this with Minis in it, and a few extra Terrain Details that Aren't DF.
I also have a Fully detailed Adventure (right now about 25 pages but it's still getting tweeked), that goes with thi layout. I'll post by the end of the month (it may get used if Thod comes over so don't want to put it up yet).

Open Invitation to Mike (Myrthe) to come and join in a game on the set up and anyone else in the area (Harneloot Hartfod at the Time Machine should be about equal distance for both of us). I would actually like to run the adventure that this goes with.

I'll post comments about the others later, got to get back to work.
