Runelords (prev Thistletop suggestions? [spoilers] 1 Year, 2 Months ago  
Hey all, I'm running my group through Paizo's most excellent Rise of the Runelords adventure path (the new anniversary edition one), and I am looking forward to using the Woodlands set for the thistle tunnels.

I know that I won't be able to reproduce the map per se, but I wanted to convey the same feel, so I put together this rough approximation. I was trying to go for a more "random" meandering path feel with varying widths of passages; that's why some have walls back to back. I was looking for some suggestions before I run it on Friday.

The upside down tile is to represent the Howling Hole, and I didn't have enough tiles with me to finish putting the walls for Gogmurt's area, but will do that once I get to the venue (this is 3 sets shown, and I brought a few other sets there already.)

Thanks!

The Woodlands set turned out wonderfully for the use as the layout for the Thistle tunnels leading to Thistletop. The PC's were all understandably scared of squeezing into the mound of nestles, wherein dozens of goblins were hiding.

The group was able to successfully navigate their way through, although Gogmurt proved quite elusive with his special ability to walk through the thistle walls!

Making the way across the rigged rope bridge, the heroes of Sandpoint arrive at the crumbling keep. There they dispatch the distracted guards, and Warchief Ripnugget's hosts.

(Unfortunately, I didn't have enough of my pieces to fully make out the keep, so I didn't build out the courtyard or outbuildings. So just the front portion, watch towers, and throne room.)

Entering the open front doors:



Peeking into the throne room reveals the Warchief astride a giant gecko holding court over his tribe.

On the lowest level of Thistletop, the heroes found Nualia - the woman who united the goblin tribes in their common purpose. After a harrowing battle with her, they defeated her, only to find the memories of her haunted life flooding into their souls. Saddened at the loss, they nevertheless pressed forward, and discovered that she was far from the only source of danger in these ancient ruins.

A wolf-demon of enormous power!



A room hidden behind an entire wall that revolved to reveal the sarcophagi of the architects! Guarded by their undead spirits!





And the treasury, partly flooded... unguarded, or so it seemed...





(An overview of the layout - note, I took some liberties with the official map.)

I'm so going to pilfer that water idea and pass it off as my own!

As thebigteacher, I'm impressed with the way you made the partly flooded room. Is this a Plastruct piece? If so, which Cat# as I never could choose which one to order to mimic what IO was doing.

The water effect is brilliant! I love that you have the treasure below it. I too will steal that idea.

Thanks for the kind words all! And yeah, that "underwater" picture turned out a lot better than I thought it would. That reflection made it look very good.

As for what I used, I just went and checked, and unfortunately don't have the packaging for it anymore.

I have it stored next to two sets of Plastruct 91802 and 91804, and it's smaller in size than those, as well as a somewhat darker blue. The "ripples" are "finer" than the 91804, but coarser than the 91802. Sorry I can't be more specific! I bought them several years ago, but didn't really have an opportunity to use them until this adventure recently.

As so many others have commented, the water looks great! Brilliant idea. Wanted to thank you for sharing as I will undoubtedly be borrowing that idea.

Rise of the Runelords [spoilers] 10 Months, 2 Weeks ago  
After dealing with the deadly denizens dwelling at Thistletop, the heroes took a trip to Magnimar to purchase some equipment. There, they learn about a rash of murders - mostly of wealthy businessmen, that are wagging the tongues of the cityfolk. The theories of who is behind the killings range from underworld deals gone bad, to the followers of justice bringing home judgment on those who would trample on the poor.

Before the heroes could investigate further however, news of murders back in Sandpoint draw them back. Following the clues to a farmhouse, they find themselves facing a pack of undead infesting the house!



They are then led to the Foxglove's manorhouse - known as the Misgivings by the locals. In the damp foundations of the building, ancient construction leads to some caves, inhabited by the same undead.

Listen, in the distance, is that them?





And what's beyond that cave mouth?



Overview of the layout.

Wow that turned out really nice. I've never seen that set. When did it come out? I'd love to order it for the same purpose but I can't order more for a couple months. I see its a limited edition set
