Here are some pics of another approach to making things split level. It's difficult to use DF to suggest precisely what I'm imagining.... In my mind, the garden itself has high walls and a high ceiling, but the rest of the rooms are "underground" and do not. They have ceilings, we just can't see them or else they'd block our view of the dungeon. In other words, from the raised area, you could hop down into the garden, but not into any of the other rooms.

Anyway, I like the pics. Hope you do too!

To create the second floor what do you use under the tiles?

The second floor tiles are all resting on columns -- I had to borrow some from the sci fi set to have enough. they are the perfect size, they were clearly designed to be used this way. (silly me, I was using them just as decoration most of the time, it never occurred to me that they would be useful like this!)

Yes, Orcus showing up is a bummer. But you mess with the magics, and eventually the magics mess with you back! ;)

Anyway, to answer the questions:

1) I think I used about 14 columns or so, I can't remember. Some people recommend other methods, like stacking CD jewelboxes etc.

2) The globe is from the Mega Minis line of Dungeon Decor, which I'm pretty sure is exclusive to Discount Hobby (www.discounthobby.com) It comes in a set with a telescope and a few other bits of scientific equipment called "Astrology set" or something like that. It is a NICE set, but the globe is easily my favorite element from it.

That Sounds Familiar... (The Globe bit)... And in Terms of Height, the Walls Seem to be Exactly 5cm so I am Looking into building some 1x1 Frames in some of the more "Common" Room Sizes...
