PFS - Slave Pits of Absalom 2 Years, 8 Months ago  
It is a while I have posted pictures here. Somehow I seemed to have been busy lately and it seemed less fun to post some builds as it was too close to work.

On a different board someone asked about how to visualize Misery Row in Absalom (Hi Nosig - I hope you make it here - this post is for you !!).

This reminded me that I never posted my 'junior league' game Slave Pits of Absalom.

Act 1 is a typical bar brawl. The MBS plus Tavern accessory is ideal for this kind of encounters.





Act 2 is Misery Row - a place where slaves are kept. A raised 'street' with guarded stairs (ladders?) going up and customers can look down to see the slaves. There are also a few 'buildings' up there - more or less the shops.

The next three pictures represent my take on it. The ladder is a custom piece. It is a end-of corridor piece with some added Hirst Arts to add a ladder. Misery row would be a lot longer - but I only represent a small part. I use the Fantasy Floor to represent the cells of the slaves. Customers climb up and can watch their wares below.
The building is the 'office' of a slave trader whom the group has to interrogate to find a 'missing' slave.

The last few acts are at the sea front (an ambush) and on a ship.

Here I combine MBS with floors to make the side of the harbour. The boxes of accessory sets are crucial here - both as hiding place as well as to make it look good.

I also combine everything with a Paizo flip map for the ship. In a way this is mean as they party concentrates on the ship - only to get ambushed from the other side which looks just like 'scenery'.

But maybe this is more how it would be in real life.

Looks good. Reading through some of the older posts and trying to borrow ideas for differing layouts. I have to admit I initially did not rate the building sets, as being quite as useful as I am now seeing them to be.

So its nice to see the different ways people utilise them.
