Here's a large setup I did for an RPGA D&D adventure I created. Everything is sitting on a 3 ft. wide lazy susan that I made, which allows me to spin the terrain around the table to within reach of all of the players. I don't have the monster minis in the pictures, but I hope you enjoy!

The adventure is called "Velhaven Abbey." The party travels into a abbey that has been infested with creatures from the Far Realms (think HP Lovecraft), which has driven everyone inside insane or turned them into undead.

The party enters into the infirmary where they are attacked by creatures of madness... (Note the custom flickering braziers inspired by forum members)



From there they traveled up a winding stair where they are assaulted by wraiths on the steps. One of the landings is actually a pit trap (removed the 2x2 pieces to make the pit). Lots of possessing PCs and pushing them into the pit.



Next, the party arrives at the balcony of the Oratory - a large audience chamber. In the center of the room is a multi-tiered podium, with a pulpit on top. The people the PCs are sent to rescue have created a makeshift fort out of the collapsed bridge to the pulpit to protect themselves from the undead that scrape at the mortar in the stones, trying to topple the podium. The water below is tainted by the Far Realm (glass tiles on fiber board).



Finally, the party reaches the source of the taint - a focus for the Far Realms, created by the mad Abbot in the Sanatorium. (The focus is actually a lava lamp). You can see the 2x2 piece that I drilled a hole through surrounding the lava lamp. I use that piece for pits, wells, etc. I also made the 2x2 grate with lifting lid.

Great setup and adventure !!

How did you make the "flames" in the braziers?

I really like those glass tiles, too !!

Nice to see someone else who appreciates the scenic potential of a lava lamp !!! I have 3 small ones that I've used in sci fi set ups.

Thanks! The flames are hot glue painted orange and yellow, sitting over top of the insides from a flickering tea light LED candle. I tried to find some translucent orange hot glue, but didn't have much luck.
